Green Bay at Chicago Preview

Because I want to believe one more time…


Green Bay Packers

Why do I like the Chicago Bears this week?

  • I always like the Chicago Bears…except lately.
  • I just can’t see any way the Bears prevent Aaron Rodgers and company from throwing the ball up and down the field.  Now with the emergence of Jermichael Finley – a player I told you about in August – Rodgers should have no problem putting up big yardage.
  • Also the Packers seem to be one of the few teams who manage to run effectively against the Bears consistently.  So there’s more points.
  • The Packers defense – with their fiesty young linebackers – will take away the running game from the Bears early and force Cutler to throw into some tricky situations.  Do you think our receivers can get open against this secondary?
  • So wait…why do I like the Chicago Bears this week?  Because there’s absolutely no reason they should win.  And I’ve come to expect good things from this group when nothing is expected of them.  I think a big play gets made on special teams early and sets the stone for a big upset.
