Bears at Falcons 2008

Nice matchup this weekend.  Then again, any Bears game before they’re out of playoff contention is a nice matchup.  The Bears could very well be 5-0 if not for a couple–just a couple–stupid errors.  By the same token, Atlanta has surprised everyone with their 3-2 record.

Stopping Michael Turner and controlling the clock has been a fairly simple recipe for beating the Falcons this season, and two of their three wins have come against pathetic teams.  The Bears can get this one done-they’re fourth overall in rushing defense and have completely, utterly shut down several teams’ running games.

But I remember several games in 2007, when it seemed the Bears might turn a corner or put some room behind them by winning a winnable game….then flopped.  So it’s important for them to remain focused and dilligent.

I already know the responses that comment is going to generate: it’s not 2007 anymore.  Thank God for that.  Go Bears.
