  • The Bears' offensive philosophy (i.e. feed off turnovers) is massively overrated. So is Pete Carroll's offensive philosophy. Chicago will stop the run, force Seattle to depend on the pass, and PC won't do it.

    I agree with Scotte that Earl Thomas will get a pick; Jay Cutler loves to target single high coverage with Brandon Marshall, but our corners will take Marshall out and no single high safety Cutler has faced this year is as rangy as Earl. And his O-line is currently just as patchwork as Seattle's, giving our D-line a chance to atone for Miami.

    In a Carolina-style performance, we play frustrating vanilla football but eke out another Soldier Field win.

    Chicago 13
    Seattle 17

    RTD: 4-7

  • Bears fan here. Won't be offended if you dismiss this prediction. :)

    The Bears wins have all been big this season. Only two of their wins have come by less than two TD's. One was Carolina (Steve Smith absolutely kills us every single time), and the other was a 6 point win over Detroit. Cutler was dinged up in the 2nd half of that game after getting completely crushed by Suh, and it affected playcalling down the stretch.

    I said this on a 49ers message board on the week of the 49ers game, and it goes for the Seahawks as well. For the Seahawks to win, the first quarter is very important. The Bears play their worst football in the first quarter. Cutler is bad in the first quarter usually, and it takes the offense a while to find much traction (if they ever do). If the Seahawks can take advantage and get ahead, they'll be in good shape.

    However, the Bears defense, most of the time, covers for the offensive struggles, and gets an early turnover or two to allow for some cheap points. The Bears play very well from ahead. Cutler and the offense are very good at piling it on when they have a lead. If the Seahawks are down early, they'll be in trouble.

    Looks like we're going to be missing two O-lineman for the game, but the O-line has been pretty bad all season, so no huge loss.

    I'm picking the Bears big, but it's mostly because of the Seahawks road troubles. I'd have much more trouble with my prediction if the game was in Seattle. I think the Bears win by a couple of TD's and a FG. 31-14

  • Since it's a road game.... Hawks are ahead in the 4th then with 2 minutes left, the bears move freely down the field and score to win.

    Unless Hawks are up by more then 7, they lose. Just a guess based on every road game this year.

    You know, I debated with you before over Carroll's willingness to be flexible. I think we might have been talking about him molding his philosophy to allow for a different sort of QB to run the team (probably in a larger discussion about the merits of Ryan Mallett or something). I recall saying that I thought Carroll would be flexible, but I can't recall my reasoning.

    The Miami game was the first real time I worried that you were probably right. I could dismiss the lack of flexibility early on this season as we broke in a rookie QB as just part of the process of easing his transition. But Wilson was hot in the Dolphins game, and I believe he could have done more had the coaches put the game more on his shoulders.

    I guess here's the part where I hope that the Miami game was a bit of a wake-up call for the entire team, players and coaches alike. Players, you're confident and that's good, but you're not so good that you can take an opponent for granted and half-ass it out there. Coaches, you need to do a better job of making in-game adjustments to take advantage of the realities of the game rather than sticking stubbornly to a script.

    To the Banedon, the Bears fan, I understand your reasoning but some trend is going to have to give this year. The Bears may win big, but Seattle just doesn't lose big this season. They keep games close and take them down to the wire. The only games where that hasn't been true are against the Cowboys and Jets, where Seattle won big. Every single loss Seattle's had was by 7 or less, and every one of them was close in the 4th quarter. Your Bears may win, but don't be surprised if it's by a late FG.

    Heh, I didn't actually predict a score on that one. I did predict a win, but I wasn't very confident about it, and predicted it'd be a close game. Oops.

    That was a bad game, no doubt about it.

    Good point. Even if the margin of victory doesn't hold to form, the Bears do still play better from ahead, so it's still a situation where I feel like the first quarter will be important.

    Seahawks - 17

    God we suck on the road. Marshawn will get stuffed. Our D will get GASHED (with or without Forte playing). Young team deflated by all the noise this week.

  • Seahawks put a dagger in my heart last Sunday, took a lot of the wind out of my sails. That loss, along with the loss to Detroit really sting me I felt we should have won both of those games, I don't feel like we're a playoff team if we can't win games like those. Put on top Sherman and Browner's suspensions (I believe they're playing against the Bears) which I don't even want to get into just disappointing. I don't have much faith going into this game even if Russell has been playing super well, I'm not trying to be super negative but trying to objectively look at the rest of the season without two of the better corners in the league, it's not looking promising.

    Think the Bears have a field day with us, we're coming off a tough loss, long flight home, another road game which we just can't seem to get over that road game curse, coaching mistakes, player mistakes. Re-reading my post seems so debbie downer, ha.

  • During the 4th quarter last weekend, my Dad and I were talking about that game already being a win.. Losing that game, than hearing the news about Browner, and my DUDE Sherman.. Well, it may be my hardest crash from high expectations, to virtually NO expectations. This team prooves week in and week out, that they can't be consistent in ANY phase of the game. My heart tells me 28-17 Seahawks. My gut tells me 35-20 Bears. I hope I'm wrong. But there is no way that Sherman and Browner can play this week with a clear conscience. I just don't see it.. Ohhh well.

  • 10 am road game. Not much of a discussion, until proven otherwise.

    With Red hurting and probably out? If I was Mike Tice, I'd run the ball 40 times. Of course, since we don't generate a pass rush on the road Cutler should have some opportunities.

    I think it will be a close game. I think we will play well and fight. I just don't think we have enough.

  • I have been just as disappointed as the next 12th man with our road woes. I wish we would have thrown the ball down the field more against Miami, especially after it was obvious that our running game was getting nothing.

    This week, i honestly think our defense is going to really step up. There is nobody on the Bears team that scares me. Browner and Sherman will rise to the occasion and shut down Marshal. They will not be able to run the ball. Not with that oline. Cutler will get pressured. Cutler will get hit. Cutler will be sniveling to Lovie and anyone else who will listen.

    The problem is, will we be able to run the ball? Their Dline is very stout, but i see us running despite them. Urlacher is old and Briggs will miss the game. Done deal.

    This week, i honestly think our defense is going to really step up. There is nobody on the Bears team that scares me. Browner and Sherman will rise to the occasion and shut down Marshal. They will not be able to run the ball. Not with that oline. Cutler will get pressured. Cutler will get hit. Cutler will be sniveling to Lovie and anyone else who will listen.

    The problem is, will we be able to run the ball? Their Dline is very stout, but i see us running despite them. Urlacher is old and Briggs will miss the game. Done deal.

    Woah... while I love your optimism, and I agree defensively they will play better, I don't see this being one sided for either team. The last 3 teams have rushed for over a 100 yards against the bears, so I agree we will move the ball well with the run on Sunday.

    Some folk just never seem to learn!! Last week, there were numerous posts of us thrashing the Dolphins......you'd think that we could "ease up" a bit?
