I’m right there with you. I don’t see how he can come out hot after a 2 week vacation. Maybe they get him into a rhythm with the short passing game? Bubbles and screens could be what’s drawn up for the first few drives.

hey bears fans..

i had a little trouble registering... listed ditka as the last SB coach(totally forgot about our old DC lovie..lol)..

as far as the game, the rams are 5-1 against possible playoff bound teams, but this one has playoff atmosphere written all over it..

im obviously hoping for a nice relaxing ram blowout, but i have a feeling this will be another playoff caliber team nailbiter, with the expectation of a later showdown..

no final score for me, however, i think if the rams win, they win by 4.. and our usual late game heroics by someone,saves the day..

go rams

As much as I want the Bears to win this game with Mitch coming back from 2 weeks off I just don't see them being able to keep up with the Rams. I hope they prove me wrong.

Bears < 27 vs 34 > Rams

You know though, if they script a good chunk of plays for the 1st couple drives and it works, that could build some confidence and get him in a rhythm. Gotta limit Donald though those drives. I'm afraid if he starts getting pressure, Mitch is gonna be runnin.....

Hey slo. Thanks for popping in. We are a mixed bag around here. A lot of us think the Bears can win this game, and another half think that this will be a Rams win. One thing is for sure, I don't think the Rams have faced a defense as complete as the Bears. Maybe the Vikings, but they weren't playing that well when you faced them. The other thing in our favor is that Goff's passer rating is 30pts lower on the road. We'll see. It'll be a really good game, but I think the Bears lose this one at home by a TD. You guys have a hell of a team this year.

Go Bears.

I said in another post that we could beat the Rams. We're only 3-4 point dogs. We're at home and indications are that Biscuit will be back. There are even hints that he could've played last week, but was held out in order to be fresher against a higher quality opponent this week. Personally, when I've seen the Rams play, they're good, but don't seem to be quite as overwhelming as their record indicates. I will say that I think that Barkley going off on us--and us losing to the lowly Giants in general--is a wake up call, even though we're only now 3-3 on the road. (And 5-1 at home.) Their defense, even though they have some stars, just isn't that great statistically. And while Biscuit and our offense experiences significant down stretches against good defenses, it looks like there won't be much of that in this game. If we score on defense, we win this game.

But on the other side of the coin, the Rams are also 5-1... on the road. They're a lot like us on offense... young QB... deep WR corps... but then there's Gurley. Howard and Cohen are nice, but there's no arguing that Gurley is the better RB situation, particularly with Howard's production fall off this year. And Goff is a bit more polished than Trubisky. Our D is better than theirs, but with the exception of playing in the Mile High thin air they've wrecked every defense they've faced. And with the way our D has played in the 4th quarter and the end of halves, they are a daunting opponent.

This game looks like a track meet waiting to happen. For us to win, our defense will have to stop Gurley--and I think they'll do a good job on that front. But they'll also have to show a pass defense that is clearly better than any they've faced. That seems plausible, but the way we've played late in halves and during some odd stretches... raises a question. The pass rush absolutely must put fear into Goff's heart and lead to TO's. Winning the TO battle is a must. Biscuit also must come out hitting on all cylinders and avoid the perplexing head scratchers. But that's asking a lot.

I think we can win and won't be surprised if we do. But I don't trust our defense enough to stifle the Rams final possession in the last 2:00.

Rams 34
Bears 31

Edit... After a little research, I'm changing my prediction.

Goff is a noticeably different player on the road. He grew up around SF and now lives in LA. The Rams haven't played a game in anywhere close to cold weather this year. Nor have they had any cold weather practices, unless they've come to Chicago early. To play your first cold game this year in sub-freezing weather against the best defense you've seen all year is just a bad matchup for them. Bears will focus on stopping Gurley and make Goff beat them. He'll come close, but he'll yield enough TOs for us to walk away the victors.

Bears 31
Rams 27

How quickly the Giants game is forgotten.

~Bears @ home vs the LA Rams!~

This is going to be an early Christmas gift/Playoff game!!!

In my last (Challenge riddled prediction game) the defense played VERY well but somehow did NOT have the pressure/Sacks that they should have against that suspect Giants Oline.

Everything works when this defense works the way its supposed to AND the offense scores a few points early.

Both of these things didn't happen & thus the result was the only possibke result.

This week I see these 2 problems being corrected due to Mitch being back & the Bears Defense treating this game
like a playoff game!

There's a GREAT chance that this game winds up being a blow out.

But for who?
.. Whom??

But..for which team???

The Rams have a "K. Mack" of their own in A. Donald & the Bears have a Whitman.. Who's been extremely streaky.

If the Bears do NOT have an answer for Donald the Rams are going to win this game by 14+ points in 2nd half points.


* * *

Mitch is back though... & he's extremely slippery in the pocket & very hard to catch.

If Donald has a bunch of pressures there's an equal chance that Mitch makes big throws downfield or picks up 1st downs on the run.

My Pagan Prediction:
Bears Defense=
This is going to be a WAY over hyped Donald/Mack game that settles the DPOY award argument.

An argument that Mack settles.
Mack: 3 Sacks, 1 (strip sack) FF, & tons of QB pressures
Jackson: Pick 6
Hicks: 2 Sacks 3 TFL & 1 play as a FB on a Goaline play :)
Callahan: 1 Sack, 1INT

This is a game (remarkably) that the refs ACTUALLY call holding calls against the opponents Oline!


Bears Offense=

Mich is Back!
3 Passing TD & 1 Rush TD
300/50

J.Howard: 22 carries 100+ yards
1 TD *(With Hicks (FB) leading the way!)*

Miller: 80 yards 1 TD
T. Cohen : 200 yards of total offense 1 TD
Shaheen: 1TD

Bears: 37

Rams: 20

Several Bears player's stay on the field for the fans (& media interviews)

City spend the next week going absolutely NUTS!


That writeup you did was awesome.

On TNF Aikman just said that the league is looking to target holding along the OL. Does that mean that refs my finally start calling holds on Hicks and Mack? That would be nice.
