    The Bears have one significant advantage over the Lions. This is it:

    They know how to play Calvin Johnson better than anyone. With Charles Tillman usually blanketing Megatron, they have held him to an average of 4.7 catches per game for 70 yards. Since 2011, the Bears have held Johnson to less than 90 yards 80 percent of the time. The rest of the league has held him to less than 90 yards 32 percent of the time over the same period. The Bears have to hope that trend continues today. If Peanut can handle Johnson one on one, that will enable the Bears to devote more bodies to Reggie Bush. More Bears talk from 9-noon with Hub Arkush and Alex Brown on 670 AM.

    This is a question he was asked on twitter.

    I think Optimus Prime can handle Megatron, but can the dline handle Reggie Bush? I highly doubt it.

    Too bad Shea isn't active today. :/

    Bass is gonna get fried by the o-line. The Bears have given up the 3rd fewest sacks(12), which is awesome, but the Lions have given up the fewest (10), and I don't think we'll have any arguments over who has the better d-line. If we get another game out of Peppers like we did last week (why he wasn't the defensive player of the wek makes no sense), we'll have a reasonable chance of winning a normal game, but minus that, it's gonna be a shootout or a blowout.
