Holy poop Bears fans are cute. So, clearly I was out and about in Chicago tonight, and I had some fun NFL previews, with quotes….
“The Lions will win 6 games because they got arrested”
“The Bears will win 11 games because their defense is awesome”
“The Bears have Marshall. ‘Nuff said”…
Cute…. Really, really cute. Want a reality check?
The Bears have one of the worst d-lines in the league, whereas, the Lions have one of the best, not to mention that instead of Shea McClellin, we have Nick fricking Fairley, SUHHHH, Cliff Avril, and Kyle Vanden Bosch.
The Bears also have a secondary that rivals the Lions as one of the worst in the NFL. It’s bad.
So really, what do the Bears have that makes them SO much better than last year?
A healthy QB? Well hell, Cutler has been hurt the past two years when it mattered, and let’s face it, Matthew Stafford was just SICK last year. Not too often a QB throws for over 5,000 YDs and 40 TDs. Beyond that, It’s funny that everyone assumes that Mike Tice’s system is just going to work. That’s a pretty bold assumption.
Oh, and Brandon “Headcase” Marshall is going to put you over the top? Sorry, he won’t. He’ll help for sure, but… he’s a headcase and really can’t compare to Megatron.
And please tell me, other than Peppers, who is the next GOOD Bears D-Lineman? Idonije? 5 sacks last year. Willy Young, a BACK UP for the Lions had 3, not to mention he forced a few fumbles too, something Idonije didn’t really do.
The Lions are a better team with more talent. Just suck it up Bears fans, take your diapers off, and seriously give me something feasible as an argument.
It’s not ’85.
