The Bears have their work cut out for them and if it were in New Orleans, I'd say put a fork in Da Bears. The dome teams don't have much of a winning record for outside playoff victories.
Rex - dude can sling it and when he's on he's fair. Not a fan, but as long as he can not turn the ball over all is well. I'm still living in the glory days of 84-86. It's been a long time coming. BEARS vs PATS again? We'll see.
How ya feel'n about YOUR team?
After watching them play Indy in the regular season, pretty good. NE turned the ball over 5 times to Indy and only lost by 7. Just undisciplined, sloppy football played in that game by NE. Stupid penalties, dumb turnover's etc etc. The pats moved the ball at will on Indy, and Manning was making cartoon like throws under presure all game. I do not think he could match that performance again. It was a great performance (even for him). Check out the spectacular td catch Wayne made on replay if you can. It was just spectacular, and def not a catch you want to rely on to win a game.You see a catch like that once in a great while. But, he made it and they executed better so they won. The pats only lost by 7 with all that , so I think they have a great chance if they well and to there true abilities. Pats had a few key injuries in there first meeting that I think will have an impact this Sunday. This is the playoffs and Indy is playing well, so things are a bit different now. But, Indy has yet to face a team that can attack them from all sides. Run, pass, long , short etc etc. Indy is a great team and they also have many strengths. The NE defense is as strong as ever, so I think with the ability they have in the air and on the ground they can win this game. As a whole the NE d was second in total points allowed this year. Ne was at 14.8 while the ravens where at 12.8. This was achieved with Rodney Harrison and Eugene Wilson on ir most of the year. Ellis hobbs has been playing with a broken wrist, also. The colts offense is avg 6.1 yards per play, the pats offense is avg 5.1. I think Indy's defense has been playing well, but I think as a whole NE has the better d since they where way more consistant throughout the season. I hope Harrison can play this week, he is currently listed as doubtfull, but Bob Sanders is questionable with a sprained knee, so I do not think this will be a large setback if Harrison does not play. A setback yes, but if Bob is questionable he is not going to be playing at 100 percent.
That is a very ,very short version. I get more in depth with my reasons in the other thread, check it out.
