Bears: Superbowl XLI Champs
I thought Id negate what the putrid anti Chicago media is trying to tell you: Don't bet on the gobblygook. Defense wins in hockey. Defense wins in baseball ( pitching more then anything) and boys and girls...DEFENSE WINS IN FOOTBALL. That and Rexy will prove why he's the best young QB to be reckoned with. Hot and Cold..but the kid';s a winner. Benson and Jones will balance that attack with a down the throat running attack.
Winner of the game? BEARS.

Umm, no ****ing way! Colts defence can play as good. they prooved it in the last 2 games. Go Payton, you deserve that damn ring!

Hester is the difference in this game. Colts special teams coverage ain't so hot.
Dev needs 2 steps to top speed.

DAAA BEARS !!! Chicago media has no inkiling on what wins games, as well as most fans.... UNDERSTAND PEOPLE this is REX GROSSMAN FIRST FULL YEAR AS OUR QB!!!!! I do nto understand what else you want from him. Of course he is going to make mistakes, he is basically a 3 year rookie! Anyway thats my soapbox, and I am glad Johnz pointed out that they will take the Colts down, as the Colts will play as well as Indiana Drivers, and you know what that means LOUSY!!!!!

I do think the Bears will win ( Better D and as pointed out, Dev Hester can be a big difference make...as long as he doesnt try and get too cute)
I also agree on Rex. The media/ fans really have no idea it seems on how good this guy can be, and at times has been.
01-29-2007, 02:49 PM
He was amazing, for 7 games in a row I believe. He was then absolutely horrible for 5 or 6 (Over 100 QB rating, then under 50). To me personally, Rex Grossman is a non-factor, so to speak. If he plays horribly, the Bears still have a chance to win; if he plays good, then it is a welcomed bonus.Originally Posted by johnz
Much is being made of the Colts superior offence, though interestingly enough the Bears and Colts had the exact same PPG Avg. during the regular season. With that being said, it is undenyable that the Colts have more weapons on O.
I think this should be a fairly matched game, despite all the 'Underdog' talk; the Colts 'D' can play better than given credit for, likewise for the Bears 'O'. I think that the Colts, on both sides of the ball, showed an incredible amount of poise in last weeks game against the Pats. In previous years where they may have crumbled, they led very successful drives and got key defensive stops. As a result, I think they pull it out, 21-13.

I'm a 9ers fan. I'm rooting for the Bears A) because of Hester and B) good friend of mine is a big Bears guy and I gave him alot of sh*t when the Marlins beat the Cubs in '03.

Everyone knows the AFC was the real superbowl. I got the bears to completely crumble in this game just like they did against Arizona.

The only way the Colts lose this game is turnovers. Without turnovers, I don't give the Bears much of a chance.
If the Colts get up early on the Bears by a touchdown or more, game over.
Rex and the Bears will never be able to play catch-up. Rex will get pressured and make mistakes trying to make something happen. Once he starts making mistakes, the flood gates open and the rest of the game is history. He acts like he has very little confidence in his ability at this time, and my bet is he chokes big in the big game.
A couple of turnovers going Chicago's way and the Bears being able to consistently run the ball without having to rely on Rex, it's possible, just not very likely.

I dsagree that Rex shows a lack of confidence. He's been the whipping boy, and just responds to the call every single time. Again...like Appolo Creed told Rocky in "Rocky III", " You'll Thank me when the fights over"....I will tell you, " You'll believe me when its over!"

this game looks like the national champion ship wit the bears only points coming off opening kickoff for T D

Well - I was right on Devin - said he'd return one. Surprised at the opening KO though.
This loss is one Rex and Rex alone. The D and ST's were good enough to win - Thomas Jones repped Powell Valley. But Rex lost that game.
Congrats to the Colts. Very nice that Dungy and Reggie Wayne got rings after the last year (or so) both have had on the family side.

The rain kept Chicago in the game until the 1st half ended. IF there was no rain, it would have been an utter slaughter... the Colts would have put up over 40pts the way they were playing. Urlacher was playing watchdog on TE Clark all night... the RB was wideopen in the shortpassing and Addai has great hands.
This game isn't as simple as the old stupid adages made years ago in the era of big, powerful, one-dimensional teams. I love how people try to make the game more simple than it is and then analyze statistics to support their claim without regard for intangibles.
Here's an intangible; or at least misreading stats
Several ways to prove this logic false:Much is being made of the Colts superior offence, though interestingly enough the Bears and Colts had the exact same PPG Avg. during the regular season. With that being said, it is undenyable that the Colts have more weapons on O.
1) Yeah but look at who they played; especially at the quality of defenses. Bears had one of the easiest schedules in the league
2) Check PPG by the offense; not over a game. If a team is only 2 or 3 series out from a score after a turnover, I dont call that an offensive score. Its pts off a turnover (not quite points scored by the defense, which isn't kept either i dont think)
3) In the games over the regular season; if one watched and knew better, they'd know how poorly the Indy D played and therefore affected Manning's on-the-field time. His pts/possession ratio was absolutely incredible. They were losing games that he played PERFECT in. If he isn't given the ball; then that lowers their chance for scoring wouldnt you say?
I'd say the whole Colts O is better at every position than the bears; even with the running backs.

the Colts, and merely pointing out that I did not feel it was going to be a complete blow-out (let's remember that NO had a competent offense). I appreciate your expert analysis at any rate Mr.Bradshaw

The cover 2 D was inappropriate and you even saw Urlacher yelling about it. Rivera couldn't coach potty training, let alone a football team. I hope the Coyboys hire him and we get Samuri Mike. The talents there, folks. No team loses a Tommie Harris and a Mike Brown and not get worse. If we stay healthy next year, look out.
