    If the defense continues to be bad, then it may be another disappointing season. Emery/Trestman, figure Mel Tucker is "The Guy" who can turn things around on defense. If they are wrong on this, then I'm going to be pretty bitter, due to the fact we will have wasted a year before bringing in a solid coach on defense. It will begin (begin anyway) to remind me of the Lovie Smith futility in bringing in a guy who could coach offense. Let's hope Tucker truly is "The Guy" and we see a defense we don't have to be ashamed of here in Chicago.

    Everyone keeps saying that the Bears D only needsto be average to win a title, but they don't (unless it is a division title). You are not going to stop any of the four teams that are in the playoffs with an average defense. Does anyone on the board believe that Cutler can score enough extra points over any four of those teams to make up for only having an average defense?

    You can get to the dance with a good offense and a decent defense, but I really don't think you can win a SB with that combination --- unless you happen to be lucky and get into contention during a year that has weaker playoff teams contending. But you can't count on that. I think you need to put together a team that can contend with any of these four teams. That means that both sides of the ball must be better than average, and one of them has to be outstanding. Some of these teams have a REALLY good D and a REALLY good O, and yet they still won't win it all.

    I think if you shoot too low, you miss the brass ring for sure. If you shoot high, you MAY have a chance to grab that ring. I think that is the only way to go about it if you want to play with the big boys.

    I heard that Ditka woke up long enough to make this prediction and promptly went back to sleep. Kind of like Groundhog Day.

    Glad he woke him up. Would have sucked to break his glasses when his face hit the desk.

    Do you blame a guy that had to comment on the Jets/Dolphins game? I would choose sleep also.

    This from the same mind that picks the Bears to win every week.

    As I said, that can happen under the right circumstances. The 06 Bears always were thought to be a fluke getting to the SB. Our O was not really as strong as it needed to be. So the Colts beat us. At least that's my interpretation. Do you think that the Bears were as complete as any of these last 4 playoff teams from this year? The last two will be even stronger.
    In 06 we were one of the last two and I don;t think we were as strong as even the weakest of these four semi-finalists. Just my take. I could be wrong.
