    6-7 wins max.

    After getting waxed 45-13 in Green Bay, I can foresee this team completely packing it in for the last 8 games.

    Thats not negative, 8-8 is a very plausible prediction based on current record and circumstances.

    That game will be closer than you think. Never count out either team in a Packers/Bears game.

    I predicted 9-7

    ATM we are 4-3

    With Cutler out at least three games that (sadly) might mean 4-6 (Pack, Lions, Ravens) before he gets back (if gets back)

    With six games left if he comes back to play. With or without Jay we SHOULD be able to beat the Rams and Browns.

    So packers, eagles vikes and cowboys...... We might be able to steal one win out of that.

    I will go 7-9 with my new prediction

    I still think 9-7 is doable with a wild card spot. The defense is still as opportunistic as ever and Hester is causing mayhem, whether it be through actual returns or through shorter fields due to teams being afraid of him. They'll capitalize on some mistakes and Josh McCown is a far better replacement QB than Hanie.

    I just keep thinking that if the lowly 'Skins can hang 45 points on us (and they left points on the field....could've been worse), then what can we expect from the offenses that remain on our schedule?

    It's not cheating, screw you. The +/- 2 is to adjust for healthy season/injury season. Bascially if healthy I thought the team could win 9-11 games, if inj's hit, you are looking at 7-9. As for right now, again it proves the point, you cannot guess this W/OUT going +/-. In 2-3 more years and the team has drafted more like this year and not like the last 10, I won't feel the need to do such a thing, but the reality is the team is paper thin, and it's backups cannot make up the loss of multiple players.

    Damn, i was close:

    2012 Standings.

    If you had guessed 9-7 +/- 2, you would've been right for 18/32 teams, or 56%. If you go +/- 3, you wouldve been 24/32, or 75%

    so you're theory is that most teams sit right around .500? I would have never guessed that.

    But I wouldn't, didn't choose the Bears at 9-7 last year +/-2, I said 8-8 +/-1(again b/c inj's are a bitch that way). This year was an even bigger disparity. While the OL was improved, and I belived the O would be improved, I didn't like the depth of the D, or the any of the Safeties, or the depth at DL; really the depth of the team in general making the idea of potential inj's even more severe.

    I just thought the O would help neutralize the D problems, which they did, but once your starting and backup DL go down, and all those worries about over 30yr old stars finally comes to fruition, it's even worse then I would have guessed. This team is no longer capable of winning 10 games, and likely not 9.

    No, my theory is that the majority of teams finish +/-2 of 9 wins (7-11), and 3/4ths finish within 3, (6-12)

    I predict the Bears finish with a 9-7 record.

    Thanks, Evernight, but no it won't be a close game. Even with Cobb and Finley gone, Rodgers will easily pick apart this pathetic defense. And GB's upstart running game will rack up big yards too. I was at the Bears-Redskins game (am I still allowed to use their nickname?) and I knew when we scored to take the lead with 3 or 4 minutes still on the clock that there was no way in hell this shitbag defense was going to keep RG3 out of the end zone.

    I'll be shocked if we hold the packers O to under 35 and there's no way McCown can match that. Packers will be 12+ point favs at home and deservedly so. The game will be all but over by halftime.

    Here's what you can expect:

    Rodgers (X2), Stafford, Romo, and even Flacco & Vick/Foles will have little trouble scoring at will on this defense. Maybe we can beat Minnesota and Cleveland with St. Louis being a 50/50. I can't see us winning more than 2 or 3 more games though. It would require an elite offense to compensate for this defense and the Bears offense, although markedly better, isn't anywhere near that level, especially with Cutler out.

    That's my fear. That the better QB's will score at will on us, racking up obscene point totals. Far heavier scoring than the "Skins did. It may end up being excruciating to watch some of these blowouts. A 45 point day by an opponent may come to look like a "good thing" compared to what the power offenses do to our pitiful defense. It will be men against boys in these games.

    You guys are depressing me. I have way too many bridges to cross and not drive off on my commute. I'm going to be a little more optimistic and say we finish 10-6 or 9-7. They'll all be high scoring games, but I have confidence McCown will run Trest,an's plays without audibling into a risky pass, Forte will get his carries and catches and we'll hang a heck of a lot of points on the scoreboard too. High scoring shootouts down to the last play of the game. Be ready.

    Sorry, Shark, but I'd rather finish the season below 500 and get higher draft picks (with the ability to stock more in trade-downs) than get to a meaningless 9 or 10 wins. Emery said in his presser that the goal was "to be in a position to consistently compete for championships" and this team has no chance of that now this year. Quick turnarounds are more common in the recent NFL (see: Chiefs, Saints, Colts, Seahawks, even Jets) and we need the picks and new blood to do it on defense.

    I think it was nuts last year Bears and another team were tied records and the other team made the playoff out of just a certain percentage. I would have wnated to see a playoff game to break that tie. This year, I think the Bears are a better team, but not after the Washington team. The Green Bay game may set my opinion better how it goes, but for now I think the team is a good middle classed team, but cant win a Superbowl this year, maybe get the playoffs, but wont finish. Lets hope better tho, see how the team and Trestman responds to the situations, so lets go bears!

    Wouldn't it be wild if for some crazy reason we actually would beat Green Bay? Right now it looks like a 100-1 shot. Like finding a cure for cancer over the bye week.

    But still. Wouldn't folks go nuts (me included) if Trestman DID figure out a way to win?
