Jets Game Could Hold Key to Two Seed

There is only one question left to be settled by the Chicago Bears during this 2010 regular season.  Will they be the NFC's two seed and spend the first week of the postseason watching potential opponents beat the hell out of each other or will they fall a game behind the Philadelphia Eagles and host either the Giants or Packers in the Divisional round?  The answer to that question will be very much on the line against the Jets this Sunday.

The Eagles face Joe Webb and the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday and they've opened as two-touchdown favorites.  (I can see that line increasing as the week progresses.)  Anything is possible, and the Vikings might have a big effort in them for coach Les Frazier, but that seems about as likely as Rex Ryan's wife taking up ballet and ruining her prized feet.  The Eagles then host the Dallas Cowboys on January 2nd.  Division rivalry.  Fierce rivals.  But I don't see it.  The Eagles should saunter to twelve wins easily.
That means if the Bears win Sunday, they'll go to Lambeau the following week with a chance secure the two seed.  If they lose Sunday and the Giants beat the Packers, the Bears will most likely mail in the final week of the year and prepare to face the wickedest front four in the sport at Soldier Field, at full strength.  If they lose Sunday and the Packers beat the Giants, the scenario is even trickier.  The Bears would be in a position to almost determine their opponent in the first round of the playoffs.  If they played at full strength and beat the Pack, they'd almost assuredly get the Giants.  But I continue to contend that the Giants are the worst possible matchup for this team and I think they might play the backups in Lambeau to keep Osi, Tuck and company in Jersey for the winter.  The Giants have a great running game and a great front four.  The Pack have neither.

I will be rooting hard for the Bears to win Sunday (shock, I know).  I don't like this Jets team and I don't want California Mark coming into Soldier Field and beating us.  But more importantly, think of the road for the three seed in the NFC: home to Packers/Giants, at Philadelphia, at Atlanta or home Saints.  (I'm assuming the NFC West will go quietly into the night.)  I think the Chicago Bears are a very good team but I'm not sure there's a team in the NFC capable of surviving that gauntlet.
So put the NFC North Champion hats and shirts back in the box and understand what Sunday means against Rex Ryan's boys.  A win Sunday could start the train to Dallas.

  • Could? I would say it most DEFINIETLY does. I think they'll need 12-4 to secure that bye.

  • Vikings at Eagles. The Williams Wall isn't going to want to chase Mr. Vick for very long. Did you notice White Trash Allenn had his locks trimmed. Can't expect any heklp there.

    Meanwhile, Mr Rodgers has been cleared to return to his neighborhood which he will find full of angry, embarrassed New York Giants. Do we have to actually root for The Cheeseheads? As Snagglepuss often said "Heavens to murgatroyd!".

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Phil in response to your point about Urlacher, yes I believe he is, however most of his greatness cannot be quantified...i.e. his ability to cover anyone on the field including receivers and also his ability to adjust to the defense prior to the snap. To me, that was what we missed most with him injured. We looked lost at times and I think that can directly attributed to Urlachers ability to read the offense.

    The thing that scares me about this game is our WR's vs their CB's!

    I know we can beat this team, But I think we are gonna have to go to the run game, play some more play action and quick hits.

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    I'm concerned less about WR vs. CB than I am QB vs. CB. Good corners will give Cutler fits. Ryan will bring the house, but if the bears can dial up a healthy dose of those hot reads like the few they burned the Vikes with it will open up lanes for Forte. The good cover corners of the Jets will have footing issues maybe? I hope so.

    I wonder if anyone could get away with toting in a mannequin foot with panty hose on it. That would be better than words.

  • Heres to hoping I get my Christmas wish and the Giants D line is crushed by a snowplow on their way to the game.

  • I think we match up good against the Jets. Offensively they have a strong running game and an inexperienced poon-hound at QB. He's been good in games where the running game is strong, and pretty Grossmanesque when the running game goes south. We take out their running game and force to win the game and I really like our chances. He's much better and finding slippery holes in skirts than holes in our cover 2.

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    Seems to me the Jets running game hasn't been as good lately as it was earlier in the season. L.T. has been on my fantasy bench after some early success and he hasn't seen the endzone for weeks.

  • We NEED this game, just as we NEEDED the Vikings game. I confess that I was pretty nervous going into Monday's game. Came out of it EUPHORIC. Now I feel very good about Sunday's game. And I too was wondering about the chances of moving that game, hearing that it won't happen, we have now changed our Christmas day travel plans - we were going to leave in the afternoon for the 24-25 hour drive to Northern Wisconsin. Now we will be getting up Saturday morning, opening Santa presents and leaving at 10 am in the hopes of getting up there prior to the 12:00 start. Unfortunately there could be some fireworks, although my sister is diehard, unfortunately her husband and several of their kids are Packer kids (how you can grow up in Arlington Heights IL and become Packer backers is completely inexplicable to me).

  • I totally agree with you Doc. BU comes up short in shedding linemen and making tackles. His coverage is excellent but his run stopping stinks if an OL gets a paw on him. As big as he is it really surprises me he has such a hard time shedding a blocker. I'll rank him a top 10 backer but I see no first ballot for Brian.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Except, of course, the fact that Brian Urlacher is the ALL TIME LEADER in tackles for the Chicago Bears.

  • Well I agree with what one of the Bears players said: Now the real work begins" Couldn't agree more. The only way the 4 letter networks are going to take this team seriously is to win out the whole season, and then we'll be right in their fucking face and then maybe they'll pay attention.

  • The Jets game is in the bag. I think the Bears have the Character and the personnel to do what the Fudgers did to them earlier in the Season. If the Pack still have something to play for come week 17, I look to that game as the one that could determine 1st round Bye or not. I have to hand it to the Packer Fans on JSOnline(Packer Blog with the most members I could find). As a whole, most of their bloggers have been pretty classy about the Bears winning the North and I have to say that for the most part they are ok with me. It's just the occasional trolls that come on here that give me a bad impression of them. I think we will be 11-4 with a shot at a 1st round bye heading into the final game.

    Back to Monday nights game. The hit Harris delivered on on Gerhart on 3rd and short was huge. That play made me proud of Lovie for bringing him back home to the Bears where he belongs.

    I still hate Lovie BTW, but if by some Christmas Miracle the Bears get to the SB...Even I will have to tip my hat in salute to him. HOWEVER, if we go again...LET'S WIN THIS TIME DAMMIT! My wife still gives me shit about that game. Grrrr.

    If/when we shut don their run game, I don't see how the gay porn star handbag model carves up our secondary when he's spending every second play having his head smacked off the ground, and Peppers pulling his helmet out of his ass. So to speak.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I have a really good feeling about the Jets game on Sunday. Forte ran strong and if we can find a way to hit Taylor on short passes out of the backfield we can get his rythym going. I want to see more passes to Olsen and Bennett as well. That quick hitter over the middle to Bennett was a thing of beauty again. Don't mess with the tactics, just keep getting more proficient at that very same game plan.

    I like the quick backpedal steps that Cutler takes in case he has to get rid of the ball on a moment's notice. we obviously can't do normal drops this year but who gives a shit if we can keep his QB rating above 100 and continue to move the ball. we can address the porous o-line after the season with the first all o-line draft ever. pick up a big receiver in the FA market and we are good to go. then in 2012 we can address linebacker. Off to vacation boys. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Here's to a victory against the Jets and one step closer to the #2 seed.

    Let's spoil the Jets day like Rex spoils his wife's nylons by wacking onto them!

    Wanted to share a heartwarming story about our team. A childhood friend of mine is watching her 2 year old son battle leukemia in a Chicago children's hospital. This past week, 12 of our Bears came to visit her son & others in the hospital. They brought presents, took pics, signed autographs and spent their time. She posted this photo and many others on her facebook taken in their room because her son was too ill to leave his room to go to the main area where they were doing the meet & greet. Sure enough, the boys came to see her son in their room.
    Merry Christmas Bears fans. I am very proud of our team, on and off the field.

    I don't want to play an extra week, but there is something to the idea that cold weather will not favor us against real contenders. Especially since the Eagles, Giants, Packers are all teams that can perform in the elements.

    But on the other hand. There is that "fourth phase." Then again, we taking over the stadium anywhere in the country.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Atlanta could lose their first playoff game. Take your pick on who they might play. Eagles, Pack, Giants, Saints? I can see a scenario where the Eagles travel to Georgia and Vick rocks their world.

    Home field advantage for all games has got to be the goal. Once you're praying to play in another stadium, the game is up.

    LOL! That would be perfect, just perfect.

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    Coach-

    The Briggs part I dont understand.

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    lobotobear and Fres, that's only fan voting. It only accounts for 1/3 of the actual decisions for the team.
    There is still a significant chance that both of them could make it.

    I went to the Pro Bowl, Urlacher's first, and it was FREAKING GREAT.

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    Good quote from Cutler: "But for the most part, I talk to Mike [Martz]. As long as Mike's good, I'm good."

    Assuming that Martz sticks around Chicago, and that we put together a workable OL--I mean, a *mediocre* OL would be nice--I think Cutler will become really, really good over the next three seasons as he becomes ever more comfortable in the system.

    I'm worried about our pass protection on Sunday. If we can handle their stunts and blitzes, I think we'll be fine; I fear a replay of the Giants game, though.

    And here's a choral flash mob to remind us that it's all good.
