BEARS DOMINATE SEAHAWKS
Here’s what I wrote the other day about this matchup:
“Everyone raving about Hasselbeck; hooray. He did nothing against Detroit and the Giants D is weak. Wait until he sees the Bears D at Soldier Field. He’ll be changing his pants at halftime.”
It proved true. The Bears did not allow a touchdown. They held Seattle to under 10 points. They battered and frustrated Hasselbeck. They frustrated Holmgren–I thought he might have a coronary on the sideline. Especially after Burleson dropped the ball on that pass in the flat. Funny how those great receivers dropped a lot of balls when the Bears are on the hunt.
Take a look at the schedule. I can’t see how the Bears will finish worse than 12-4. And that’s being generous. As of right now–wait for the cliche–the only thing that can beat the Bears is themselves.
Break out the fine-tooth comb to find the faults on this team. Why would you use a comb though? Anyway, the only thing worth having any concern about is possibly Devin Hester. Michaels and Madden, who are a lot more palatable when the Bears are rolling, kept referring to Hester as a gambler. I would say he’s more shaky than anything. He kind of had that Bobby Wade look about him and I can see where that could haunt the Bears at some point. Lucky for them they have 3-4 other guys that can return punts if need be.
Benson looked solid, Jones almost got 100 and had 2 scores, Moose found the end zone and continued to help Rex roll. Rex was precise again and wowed the guys in the booth. What’s not to like?
The Bears have scored the most points in the NFC and only the Colts have scored more in the NFL. The Colts. The Bears have allowed only 29 points through 4 games, least in the NFC and likely the whole league depending on what the Chargers do on Monday night.
