  • Bears about to hibernate, or go Grizzly?

    The Bears sit atop the NFC North with the Packers, at 6-3.

    The Bears play at Miami this Thursday night, and catch a break by facing the Dolphins #3 QB in Tyler Thigpen. Still not a cupcake game though.

    But look at the final 7 games for the Bears.
    How many do you think they will win?
    Will they go 6-1, 5-2, 4-3, 2-5, or 1-6?
    Percentage-wise, they won't run em all either way.
    • @ Miami
    • Philadelphia
    • @ Detroit
    • New England
    • @ Minnesota
    • NY Jets
    • @ Green Bay

    This is a brutal schedule on paper, although the Fins are on their #3 QB for them, and the Lions their #2.

    I'm a bigger Thiggy fan than most so I got them losing this week. So that makes it 2-5

      See them going 3-4 or 4-3. Division may well come down to week 17 at Green Bay.

        I think they beat Miami, Detroit & Minnesota. I voted 4-3 though, because if they win those 3 and lose the other 2, they should put up a really competitive fight against the packers.

          I voted 3-4. Going 9-7 possibly miss the playoffs and nothing changes as they will be mediocre the next season as well.

          Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

            True, despite injury depletion or possibly missing the playoffs themselves the Packers would love to trash the Bears season.

              It's a tough schedule for sure. Packers have a pretty tough schedule too.

              at Miami W I think it all depends on the Dolphins getting their running game going against the Bears good run D. Thigpien is good enough to play decent and did lead a good drive last week and had some good starts in 2008. Still a win though for the Bears.

              Philly. L Tough home game with Vick playing so well. Huge game for tie breakers but I think Philly pulls it out.

              at Detroit W My heart wants Detroit to continue to play well at home and avenge the Week 1 loss but our Dline and special teams are going to have monster games. Hill can move the ball but we can't run the ball and I think the Bears pull this one out unfortunately.

              New England Loss Brady and Double B always are winners.

              at Minnesota W Season over the Vikes but I think the Bears pull of the close one. Road warriors in this stretch for the Bears

              Jets Win Bears finally win a tough home game other than Pack and limit Greene/LT. Another close one but Bears get the W.

              at Green Bay Loss Pack win the division at Lambeau but Bears get wildcard at 10-6.

                W Miami
                L Philly
                W Detroit
                L New England
                L Minnesota
                L New York
                L Green Bay

                8-8, no playoffs.

                  That's a pretty brutal schedule. I said 2-5 with wins against MIA and DET.

                    Where is the 7-0 option?

                      I wish I could use my powers as Bears team leader to keep others from talking about the Bears unless they actually know wtf they are talking about.........but alas.

                      Anywho, we're about to play Miami who'll be on their 3rd string QB on a short week. If our strong run defense translates vs. the Wildcat, this should be a win.

                      And then I think we'll beat Detroit and Minnesota. We already have, and nothing those teams has been doing tells me the result should be any different. Then, the Packers game will decide the division in the final week.

                      9-7 or 10-6 depending on how that game goes.

                        All I know is that I will laugh if the Bears win the division after reading eight months of Packer/Viking fan bitchfests on here.

                          Haven't you heard though? Aaron Rodgers is gonna throw for 7000 yards and 65 touchdowns this year.

                            How is facing Thigpen a break for the Bears??? He's more of a threat than the Chads

                              He's probably been running the Dolphins scout team and they'll have a short week to get him ready to start. If he were a better option than the Chads, he would have been starting over them, no?

                              I expect to see a bunch of wildcat and a simplified overall offense. We've been lights out against the run so if that translates vs. the wildcat, I think we'll be fine.

                              There's always the chance of Cutler throwing the game away ala the Redskins, but for anyone to seriously sit back and think the Dolphins should win is asinine imo.
