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.
predicted before: 12-4
new prediction: 6-10
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?
