That would take some research on his part. You're expecting too much from a sports journalist.

Re: On To The Bears

The Bears defense is really, really good. Guys like Akiem Hicks, Danny Trevathan, Adrian Amos and Eddie Jackson are having some phenomenal games. I look for it to be a little tougher to move the ball than we think.

Agreed - but Drew Brees isn't Cam Newton either.

I don't think we'll hang a 40 burger on that defense, but considering how horrible they are on offense we "should" be able to make some things happen.

Agreed, I expect about a 27-17 game.

No freaking way we even put over 30 on that Bears defense with their run oriented offense.

Do you butt-bumpers even watch football?

I think we hit 40 plus. Their defense is good but ours is no joke either.

At least there is a little more film on Trubisky for the Saints to watch than there was on Hundley!

Good luck with that one on Sunday in the dome. Especially going against a hot defensive team that can create turnovers, get to the QB and take pick 6's to the house on any given pass play.

I hope he throws in Latt's direction.

Harbaugh went 5 for 22 for 61 PaYD!!! Vince Buck had 2 INT off of Harbaugh, but if I remember right, Jimbo completed 4 for 4 on the last drive and the Bears won 20-17 in the Dome...

Everyone wanted to kill Carl Smith, but years later we learned it was Jim Mora who was scared to trust Hebert to pass the ball...

Spar with 'em early without the turnovers, then put em away and don't let up until the home flight's wheels are coming off the ground!!!

Re: On To The Bears

This going to be "hit you in da mouth" game. Really would've felt more comfortable if we had Walford. At least we still have Unger



#DaBears* D hasn't allowed an offensive TD in their last 9 qtrs & are the only NFL team to not allow an offensive TD over the past 2 wks. ��⬇
