Bears at Bengals 2009

It’s so easy to get tickets in Cincinnati it’s ludicrous.  So a local friend of mine-a Bengals fan no less-almost bought a pair and made an 18-hour road trip for the game.  But we decided not to, and now that it seems the flu is spreading rapidly around families it’s probably a good thing we didn’t.

But rest assured, 40% of the crowd will be from Chicago on Sunday.  That’s why it’s so fun to be there.

What’s your prediction?  Like for most every game since 2005, I rarely go into a game thinking the Bears don’t have a chance.  There are a lot of ways the Bears could lose this game as many will point out, but I see so many reasons they should win.  Especially after the Bears held Matt Ryan and company under 200 yards passing.  And Michael Turner struck a lot more fear into me than our friend Ced does.

But, about as often as not, Lovie Smith’s teams have a strange way of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.  As they did last week, and as they did against the Packers.  And come to think of it, same as Dick Jauron and Dave Wannstedt’s teams did.  But let’s not go there.  It’s Friday and I don’t want to spoil it.

  1. Bears 24
    Cincinnati 20

    Matt Forte will finally bust loose this weekend and Cutler will play better since it’s not a nationally televised night game.

  2. I’m making chicken chili if you want to stop by, Febster. Not hobo chicken chili though. and I don’t start with the best part-the neck-or add secret hobo spices if that’s what you were thinking.

  3. I can see this being the beginning of the end for the Bengals, they had a nice lucky run for the first part of the year but now is where they’ll lose heart…hopefully.

    Bears – 31
    Bengals – 16

    I’m not sure what I’ll be making but chicken chili sounds great, enjoy! Maybe some chicago-style beef samiches?

  4. Perno, nice comment today over on Biggs’ blog. Hope you’re right about a win Sunday!

  5. The Bears are going to hit Benson so hard I honestly believe he may travel back in time. Maybe to his days at Texas when he was smoking weed.
    Peanut will have his hands full with 85 but I see him shutting him down with an exclamatin point.

    My prediction is that this is the week we see the Bears come together as a team.

    Bears 28 Bengals 13

  6. two fumbles by Cedric Benson

  7. I hope you guys are right. I just can’t get over how pure crap the Bears run game has been. I haven’t seen much of the Bengals this year, I guess I’ll see plenty today. Go Bears!

  8. Not even through the 2nd quartered and I’ve stopped watching. I’ve never down this before. I hope I eat my words, but this team is God awful and at 3-3 (yes, this game is already lost) will be lucky to finish the season at 6-10.

    This is unbelievable, Lovey get a clue you can’t win with 3 and 4 string defensive players. Roach does not have a clue what he is doing. I’ve seen some bad Bears teams in my day, but this team is a joke. I agree with Jeff, this is too painful to watch.

    Dude, I was at the game. And unless about 95% of the Bears fans that make up the “40% of the crowd” were in plain clothes and were silent…again, you are full of it.

  11. It is obvious the coaching staff, led by Lovie Smith, is cluless and not up to the job requirements and should be immediately replaced. Yeah, NOW, we cannot wait until the end of season.

    “And Michael Turner struck a lot more fear into me than our friend Ced does.”

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!! This just keeps getting better!

  13. Bengals guy: It’s hard to cheer for a team that gives up 2, 3, 4 TD’s in about 3 minutes time. I’m sure the Bears fans there were very quiet. We, as Bears fans, have nothing to come back with. Enjoy not having an embarrassment of a team…for now.

  14. The Bengals fan is just happy that we are in the position right now that his team has been in 90% of the time since it was brought into the league. Good luck making the playoffs.
