These next two games are trap games. You know, ones where the Bears (and their fans in particular) feel overconfident about their ability to win.
Seattle is still a bit of a mystery. Coach USC has still not developed the "pattern" of behavior that is easily predicted by opponents. The pickup of Marshawn Lynch isn't being talked about, and his skill set meshs well with the way that Carroll likes to utilize his RB's. Frankly, I think we will see a fair amount of delayed screens to Lynch. By the way, Seattle did a nice job trading a 4th rounder for Lynch, then getting a 4th back for Deion Branch (though they moved down in the 4th). Golden Tate will have to step up though.
Washington is playing very good defense. Very good. McNabb seems to do just enough to get by. Their weakness is the same as ours, offensive line. Heading into a bye week is a bad time to play a team like Washington. Shanahan can coach, so I expect a tough game.
Stay on your toes Bears. These next two weeks could very well determine our ability to get in the playoffs. As long as we take them seriously, we will have the ability to control our destiny. If not, we will be mirred in "the hunt".0 BEAR DOWN!, 0 High Fives, 0 Like, 0 Dislikes, 0 Fap, 0 Facepalm
