Orton talk? Check, done, glad we have Cutler. Benson talk? Check, done, glad he’s gone. T.O. talk? Check, done, not happening. Time to talk about Bears and Falcons.
I find it strange that I was supremely confident that the Bears would go into Indianapolis and beat the Colts on Sunday night in the 2008 season opener. And they did. But I don’t know about this here game, I really don’t.
Lovie’s defense is playing well enough overall to have contributed to a 3-1 record. But it bends a hell of a lot. Oh my God does it bend. So how much will it bend against a team featuring Michael Turner, Tony Gonzalez, Roddy White and Matt Ryan. We all know the feeling in the pit of our guts when you see receivers WIDE OPEN exploiting the Bears’ zones.
I feel that in order for the Bears to win, Ron Turner is going to have to take the offensive handcuffs off with the goal of scoring 35 points to win this game. I don’t know if Turner has ever done that in his career. But he had better think about it this week.
Enjoy the game.
