The Bears look like the class of the NFC. Watching them Monday night, I think we'd kill'em.

When we play them in regular season, will we be team against Packers or team against Baltimore?

Same team. That Sunday night game had to happen the way it happened to get the team we have now. I doubt we'll see another stinker the rest of the way.

The threat of of Jay Cutler playing like an Aaron Rodgers is very small. Not impossible - cause he has his moments - but small. So I think we can keep their offense somewhat in check. However, the Bears have a defense that is more respected than the Packs' D. Soooo.... maybe they keep us in check too. I think the Bears game turns out to be one of those 13-10 defensive battles....

Not the best teams go to the superbowl every year... what we need most is momentum and the most desire to win. Every team can beat every other in the NFL any given night - the odds may be pretty small though. But right now, I think we have the best odds of the entire NFL to make it to the superbowl.

But our lack of experience in big games may come back to hurt us in games in Januray against say the Patriots.

'Cause we have never made average QBs look like hall of famers? I'm not too concerned about how much we beat them by, I just want them to control the game. SHould be a slugfest as you indicate.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

I know I should not but I am more or less taking this Buffalo game for granted. I see it as another week to get healthier and maybe give the starters some time off once game is in hand. It will be interesting how Gary Kubiak allots playing time. Hopefully, Yates and Forsett get some time. Mitchell also as Cody has missed some playing time with lower back strain.

Let's not forget that Ryan Fitzpatrick introduced himself to the NFL through
embarrassing the Texans at Reliant Stadium.

Yeah, but let's also remember since then he's 0-2 against the Texans (combined score of 66-16) throwing four picks and no TD's and posting passer ratings of 48.3 and 41.4. And those two games were against defenses coordinated by Richard Smith and Frank Bush.

A shiver just ran up my spine.

The Buffalo fans could be right.

They finally broke their 5-7 during the first twelve game streak last year.

This year, they can go no worse than 6-6 over the first twelve games.

I believe we're in more of a talent management portion of our schedule, it's important to rotate reps through this part of the season to make sure we win games and stay healthy.

Not to mention we're on a short week next week as well, but get an extra half week going into the following matchup, like a mini second bye I see it, 2 very winnable games so hopefully we can get out in front and rest our starters at least a little later on in both games before coming back for a tough-ish looking run-in, Pats & Bears plus 2 games against the Colts who look like an improving outfit as the season wears on.

My thoughts also. Let's see if Forsett can keep that 5 yard average with more attempts. I will be watching for Grimes to get some plays. Will he be active?

I'm guessing Grimes will be since we've always dressed 3 RBs. I think Forsett will get carries if he can do something on the field. His last outing with Tate out, he averaged less than 1 ypc. We need big production from the bench. Foster is getting way too many reps. And if all goes to planned, we end up running a lot in the second half.

Yes, but they have to play a lot better in the second half. A lof of tough games coming up starting with a battle of two 7-1 teams in Chicago next Sunday Night. They can probably afford to lose another game against an NFC team and still get the 1st seed in the AFC, but this is a big statement game coming up. If we lose the haters and national media will say the Texans can't beat a good NFC team. I would almost call this game in Chicago a must win game just because of how horrible they looked against the Packers in their last primetime game.

Agreed. I think the Texans can win, but I think they can win every game. I'd like to see them roll into Chicago and put a Ravens like beat down on 'em but I really don't expect it. I just don't want to be embarrassed again on Sunday night.

Default Re: Do we have a Super Bowl team or not?

Forsett looked so-so & I did not see Grimes. If our younger WRs (Jean, Posey & Martin) do not step up, we better go high for another RB to take some weight off Foster. I do not see a playmaking WR falling to us. I am still ambivalent about Terrence Willams from Baylor. His stats are good but just don't see what I want to in his play to take him first round.
