Packers - Bears Preview

Actually, this won't be much of a "preview," folks. Kinda put that one out there on Thursday. As in "Packers get ready to tear Da Bearz a new one." Pretty well sums it up, don't you think?

And, as with many things in life, sometimes less is more. As with this particular post.

My friend, Billy Da Bearz Fan, (yes, I do associate from time to time with those less fortunate football fans amongst us), predicts Da Bearz over the Packers, 38-34. "Stick that in your pipe and smoke it," he said this morning. Of course, after that kind of a prediction one might well wonder what he's smokin'. But we won't go there. At least...for the time being...

The prediction that matters is what this prognosticator is ready to predict. The current line on this game is Packers by 4. My prediction is Packers over Da Bearz (like that would actually be in doubt) by a final score of 27-17.

Da Bearz secondary is really more of a tertiary. Cutler can make plays. For both Da Bearz and the Packers. He's a wingnut like Ol' #4: he trusts his arm to make every play and that can add up to interceptions. If the Pack can keep Da Bearz special teams in check, this game should not be in doubt.

Bank on it. Pack 27 - Da Bearz 17.
