    We've over 1/3 into the season now, so we should have a better idea of how well the team will do this season. I thought it would be interesting to see the adjusted predictions for the 2013 season. Maybe we can do this every few games now, due to the fact we should be getting a clearer idea of what we have in this 2013 version of the Chicago Bears.

    1. What's our win/loss record going to be when the dust settles?

    2. What are your predictions for a post-season? Will we make it?

    I can not remember what I thought in the beginning of the season, but I'm looking at the schedule and I see a 10-6 record.

    Not sure if that is enough to be a wild card, and I don't think we win the division.

    Damn

    10-6 is my guess.
    I can see us lose both times to Packers, Ravens and to either Vikings/Lions

    Our chances of getting to the playoff is through a wild-card and it will all depend on other results. But if we can nail Packers after byeweek and Lion we might have a shoot at first place.. Cobb and Clay out and that is probably going to cost Packers some wins(atleast I hope so)

    I'm not changing 9-6 +/- 2 games. This O isn't completely coherent and the D isn't going to stop even average teams.

    10-6. The defense WILL show up at some point (not saying they'll stay that way), and we'll battle Detroit, San Fran, and MAYBE 1-2 teams that currently have a losing record for wild card spots. TB, MN, ARI, NYG and Carolina can all be written off already.

    I'm revising my prediction down.....I'm thinking 9-7. The team is a work-in-progress, and a year away (at least) from being where it needs to be. Special teams and the "D" are a bit of a disappointment. The "O" will have some bumps in the road too. I'm not convinced "Bad Jay" is completely gone against top-tier opponents, but hopefully the really bad Jay is gone.

    We should have only 1 lose at this time. Ravens and Pack game was a frickin joke it was like who wants to lose it more. We have only 2 games that would give me concern Dallas and Philly. So my record still doesn't change and I still think Bostic is better than DJ. If you rewatched the last game I could not believe how many missed tackles he had and am so excited to see Bostic replace him.

    I'm staying with 11-5/10-6. Our O is improving, and our D isn't terrible. They just need to, ahem, tweak a few things.

    I think we can still get to 10-6.
    I thought this team had a legit shot to win 11-12 games this year but underestimated the falloff in D (DL especially) and ST.

    @ Redskins - Win

    The Bears will put up a bunch of points against this sorry defense and Washington will be in passing mode, which the Bears defend better than big running back mode ( ;) ). The only thing that worries me about this is their litany of weapons to throw to. Bears by 11

    @ Packers - Loss

    Lacy will run roughshod over this team opening some room for the pass game. I think Cutler has improved much but will probably still throw a pick or two against this Dom Capers defense. Pack by 3

    Lions - Win

    Will need this after the loss to the Packers, Tillman will hopefully be healthy enough to contain Calvin and Briggs will do a great job on Fauria. Bears by 13

    Ravens - Win

    Bears defense is fast enough to keep up with Rice and Smith and their offense should be clicking by this time. Bears by 10

    @ Rams - Win

    Hoping this highly inconsistent team has mailed it in for the season by this point. Either way Bears should win. Bears by 10

    @ Vikings - Loss

    Adrian Peterson should have a field day against this team and the Bears will struggle on offense in the loud Metrodome, hoping to purchase tickets for this game. Vikings by 5.

    Cowboys - Win

    Monday night at home, I think Bears take this one in prime time. Bears by 3

    @ Browns - Win

    Their dominance of the AFC North continues and Bears win this one by 14.

    @ Eagles - Win

    Eagles will have no chance for the playoffs at this point and their only motivation would be to keep the Bears out. Bears by 3.

    Packers - Loss

    This game will probably be for the division. I see the Bears losing this in a hard fought battle, whichever team makes the most mistakes will for certain lose this game.

    I guess that means 11-5 and either a 3 or 5 seed.

    Im never objective when it comes to sports (my teams), so it is more what I wish for, not what is probable. Im going for 10-6 and a wild-card spot, but its gonna be tough, cos it looks like vikings are gonna meltdown and packs, lions and bears are gonna have a pretty similar score. i think we can beat the packs too, but also we could lose with 25 points diff, lets hope our D suits up

    With Cutler and Briggs injured my previous predictions are null and void.

    My 9-6 +/- 2 is standing tall. It might seem the cowards way out, but the inj's this team have had are exactly why this could have been an 7-11 win team.

    Oh, and you can't go +/-2 on your prediction, thats cheating, since you could pretty much predict ANY team's record as being 9-7 +/-2 and probably be correct for 2/3rds of the teams. (the other 1/3 being extreme outliers)

    Hate to be negative, but unless there are significant changes I see 8-8. I will still be hoping we pull off a better season, but the defense plays like a wet noodle and Cutlers real status is a big question mark.
