    Running the ball makes sense for the Bears. It's no secret that their passing game has been awful. And the Packers did allow some big runs in Minnesota, although mostly it was because of Adrian Peterson. The Packers should put eight in the box and challenge them to pass.

    Bears will NOT be able to run if they are trailing by 2 scores.

    That is what I predict. Packers by 13 points.

    How good is the Bears pass protection? I think that's going to be the game maker. If the can give their QB time, it'll be a close game. Otherwise, I say 6 sacks and an asswhooping. 27-9.

    The Lions sacked them 6 times in 50 attempts. Not good at all.

    I think our d will dominate.

    The Bears are not a very good football team and it's up to the Packers to make certain that continues.

    We don't turn it over and we shut down the run it's an easy win. Same thing I put in the thread about the keys to winning this game.

    And they don't come easy very often when these two play.

    The SITUATION here reminds of a boxing match and one fighter has just been hit with a classic left followed by a right. The fighter is standing there dazed almost waiting for the other fighter to knock them out.

    We just need to come out hard and hit them right in the mouth like we did at their place last year. Blow them up early and this one is over.

    Yes, let them run it with their fumble prone RBs.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    5 turnovers. called it. Stand by it.

    i think we will give up over 80 rushing yards
    i think we will give up over 260 passing yards.
    I think we will give up 3 field goals

    I dont think they will score a touchdown
    I dont think we will ever trail
    I dont think we lose this game

    BEND DONT BREAK

    Did they sign a mobile QB with some throwing skills? Did Cunningham come out of retirement? Cause I don't see Griese throwing for 260 on us.. even if they trail the whole game and are in pass only mode. The line is a sieve for them, especially at tackle. Tait can't move real well anymore..

    That or they better get the ball out in a hurry... but with the physical play we have outside.. not much there either.

    I'm hoping that the Bears get the ball first on offense. That way we can shut them down, maybe get a turnover and great field position right away and set the tone.

    Off Topic... hope the cubbies choke in the muggy Arizona heat :)

    My worst nightmare would be a Cubs vs Yankees series.. I would rather puke the last drop of fluid from my inners than watch that garbage..

    The Red Sox are worse than the yankees. If the yankees are the Evil Empire.. the sox are The Dark and Sinister Empire.
    They spend the same amount as the Yankees and they sell pink hats. i hate them... they are all thats wrong with sport.

    Go Packers.

    I've been a Cubs fan for 35 years or however long it's been since the Braves left Milwaukee. My kid brother played baseball and with no team I took him to Wrigley. Hooked ever since.

    At least you can't say I'm a banwagon fan. They've sucked 33 out of 35 years.

    see im perfectly fine with red sox fans like you who have been there forever... but ever since about 2003 they have surpassed the yankees as the Evil Empire.... and yet they are made to look like heroes...

    since the bravos arent in it. ... Go Cubs

    I would probably emphasis the run as well seeing as it is they don't have a QB that can get rating above 40.

    Makes you wonder why the they traded the best RB they had.

    See growing up in northern WI and having to endure years of Cub fans comming up, whining that they haven't done jack didley since the goat... I have a built it dislike for the Cubs. I have learned to feel for the fans of the loveable losers, but still dislike the team. Here is to another century of bad luck.

    But I have to say Wrigley field is a treat, it might be outdated and such, but it is pure baseball. Much like Fenway.. got to a game there in 02'.

    Back to topic.. they better find a way to inspiring Benson to run hard.. otherwise it will be a long day for the Orange and Blue.

    Hey.. I had some football in that post... chilla... :)

    My goodness... look in some of these threads and tell me all posts (Yes PIB beating dog posts) are on topic... kinda the spur of the moment thing.

    On topic... Benson will be knocked out or pulled from this game by the second quarter... Another AP will be running the rock.. a larger slower version.

    PS... this is like running game thread 5402 this week..
