Hey, I need some relief from all this political and financial mess. Talk to me, man. Lost the election, stock is down, and I got a bad cold, given to me by my little baby niece....she sneezed into my face 10 times during dinner this weekend. LOL.....I need a sports tangent!

How's the town thinking about the next big game? Chicago and Houston both 7-1. Some say this is a preview of the SuperBowl matchup!!

How are you guys feeling? I know you've been less than excited about the Bears, but you guys are 7-1.
I don't have any special insights to the game or anything. I'm not a sports radio/fantasy football person, but, i do know the Bears have been lucky with the schedule, the one really good team they played they got spanked (Packers). Now their schedule gets tough, and their offensive line just absolutely sucks, especially the outside protection of Carimi and Webb. My guess is Watt is going to have a field day with those guys. If Watt and the gang get pressure early i think Cutler will go into his pouty girliewood routine and start throwing interceptions. My hope is that the Bears try to establish the run early to take the heat off the pass rush, and then do some play-action passing, nothing too long where you'd need alot of protection. As far as the defense goes we're pretty solid, Tillman and Jennings are top notch, Urlacher and Briggs are beasts. Last game i didn't think the pass rush put on enough pressure, i think they're suspect there, Peppers doesn't seem like his regular beast self, he may be nursing something. The safeties are....meh. I also heard word that Tillman's wife is expecting and he could possibly miss the game, Facebook rumor, so take that with a mountain of salt. Bears need to create turnovers to win, if your boys play it conservative on offense i think you have a very good shot.
