The Bears are leading the NFC with a surprising 3-0 record and have beaten two teams predicted by most “experts” to play in Super Bowl 45, the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers. This Sunday night, the Bears travel to New York to take on the Giants in prime time in their new stadium. The Bears and Giants appear to be headed in opposite directions. New York is 1-2 and has looked more confused, disorganized and out of touch with each week that goes by.
Even former Giant Tiki Barber thinks that coach Tom Coughlin’s control of the team is slipping away. This is something I was sure would happen in 2007. What did the Giants do instead? Win an extremely improbable Super Bowl victory.
I was impressed watching how the Bears rose to the occasion to defeat Dallas and Green Bay. This upcoming game is scaring me a little. By all appearances it looks like it should be a winnable game against a team spiraling out of control. But in order to beat a wounded, embarrassed team on their own turf on national television, the Bears are going to have to bring their A game.
