Expert Picks Week 4
Panthers at Bears
Florioís take: Iíve picked the Bears to win each week this year. I felt smart after they beat the Falcons. I felt like I took a justified risk after they lost to the Saints. I felt stupid after they lost to the Packers. Iíve got a feeling Iíll soon feel like an idiot after they lose to the Panthers. If the Bears donít win this one, they could be 2-5 at the bye. That should be reason enough to find a way to outscore a team that remains, for now, inferior to the Bears.
Florioís pick: Bears 24, Panthers 13.
Rosenthalís take: I want to take the Panthers. Iíve spent a while trying to think of a logical reason why theyíll win, and there isnít one. Carolinaís defense is a mess. Cam Newton hasnít faced a defense quite like the Bears. It just feels like bad times are brewing in Chicago and a home loss like this to a feisty young Panthers team is the logical next step.
Rosenthalís pick: Panthers 23, Bears 20.
Should be able to win against Carolina. Not sure about our O against their D (Rivera is still their coach and all), but ill put faith in our D to shut down their O.
*Edit...and i think its past time they stop referring to themselves as "Experts"
I have zero faith or confidence this team (coaches or players) to beat Carolina, or anybody for that matter...I fear this team and season is on the verge of completely imploding...If Carolina pulls up any kind of fight, I think weíre in trouble...we either win in a cakewalk, or lose by a FG....
i was gonna vote that we win by a FG. Maybe something low scoring like 10-7, i really do believe our D will shut down Cam
