This ride is not over. Do not attempt to leave the wagon while in motion. This is merely a roller coaster, not a cliff.

I love it when we all think we are gonna get our asses kicked. We always lose the other way around.

We basically have to win out, I'm not sure whether or not I'm going to watch next week, I probably will and I don't know why, is this like being addicted to crack? Have I been chasing the dragon since 2005?

And if not, 9-7 or maybe 10-6 is the best we can do, but 8-8 or 7-9 are also starting to loom as possible. All our playoff games, if we then make it as the 6th seed, will be road games and the results there are likely nothing we'll be happy about. So far though there is little reason to think we can beat anyone but the truly awful on the road.

Face it folks perhaps we have overestimated this team's potential this year. The D is getting figured out by the opposition and our OLine is not moving the pile at all well making it very hard for Lynch to do it all himself.

I genuinely hope the positive posters here are right but after today I'm not encouraged by what I saw today and the news following the game.

Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. Until the OLine is strengthened the team will remain weak.

Looking at our win/loss record, and who we beat and who we lost to, there are only three games that jump out at me as games that "should have" gone the way they did: SF, NYJ & CAR. Looking at their records from this point in the season, we "should have" lost against SF, and we did. We "should have" beaten NYJ, and we did. We "should have" beaten CAR, and we did. All others are games that probably "should have" gone the other way.

The Bears game is one we probably "should" lose. If we win, it will probably not be as surprising as it could be. We've already won against some very tough teams. CHI will be just another in that list.

Sure, it's on the road, and that's problematic. But in spite of our record, we're not as bad off in that department as folks think. In five road losses, a single key play meant the difference between a win and a loss. Some games there were multiple plays that if only one would have gone better, would have made the difference. And when elevating your play to win instead of lose takes as little as playing better on a single play, you're pretty damned close.

The Bears were quite literally decimated by injuries this week. We tend to play up to tough teams, and have won or almost won against teams tougher than the Bears. Yes, it's a huge, tough game, but let's look at things in the larger scope of things. Chicago is a whole lot closer than Miami. We know it's tough, and we'll plan accordingly. Looking back after the Chicago game and seeing a 7-5 record, would we be surprised if we'd have wins against ARI, STL, DET, and MIA, but losses against DAL, GB, NE, and CHI? I think not. I think at this point, if those wins and losses were reversed, we would have a completely different mindset.

The interesting thing will be the suspensions. If they stay (which they typically would) then Cutler can burn us quickly. If not then Chicago has a horrific O-line. The last time we played a team with a bad O-line like that was GB.

On the other hand Chicago has a good running game...........definately potential to torch us but we just need to blitz the crap out of them.

Regardless of outcome I am very intrigued to see how RW does against the Bears defense

I see us getting toasted... cutler benefits from having time in the pocket and we cant rush the passer at all on the road!! outside of the gb game it has been mediocre at best!! we need to get pressure up the middle bc all irvin does is run around passer every time!!! start blitzing more up the middle, stunt more, do something!! playing base def isnt doing the job
