Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears Game Preview

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears Game Preview

The Bears have an opportunity Monday night against the Detroit Lions to cement their position on the NFC's top shelf. If they win I have no doubt they'll enter the second half of the 2012 campaign at no worse than 6-2 (preferably 7-1) and be primed to play ballgames in January. I think they do it.

WHY DO I LIKE THE CHICAGO BEARS THIS WEEK?

  • I always like the Chicago Bears.

PERTINENT STATISTICS

  • The Detroit Lions are the 2nd ranked offense in terms of yards-per-game and 12th in points.
  • Their defense is 9th in yards-per-game and 24th in points. (One would think this discrepancy has something to do with their porous coverage units on specials.)
  • Their always-talking pass rushers have been one of the disappointing units in the sport, registering only 9 sacks thus far this season.
  • The biggest statistical advantage the Bears have going in: they are +9 in the turnover battle. Detroit is -1.

TWO GUYS PRIMED FOR BIG NIGHTS

  • Julius Peppers is the anchor of the Bears defensive line but he has yet to have one of those "I am unblockable" games. Matt Stafford was forced from the pocket a lot (early) against the Philadelphia Eagles. Let's see if Lions rookie Riley Reiff can handle Pep the way he seemingly handled Jason Babin.

  • Devin Hester is one of the biggest Monday Night Football performers in Bears history and he continued that trend with his diving touchdown grab against the Cowboys a few weeks back. I have written that Hester has looked ordinary in the return game thus far in 2011. The Lions are the worst kick covering team in the league. If they send the ball his way, they will pay dearly.

MORE ANALYSIS, PLEASE? SURE.

  • The Detroit receiving corps is a nightmare match-up for the Bears and pretty much any other secondary. Calvin Johnson is arguably the best receiver in the sport (unfair to rule out Larry Fitzgerald because he has no QB). Nate Burleson is a solid second option and has had success against Chicago. The tight ends - Tony Scheffler & Brandon Pettigrew - will attempt to own the middle of the field while forcing Brian Urlacher to run sideline-to-sideline. If the Bears don't pressure Stafford consistently, he will move the ball.
  • That being said you'd need to look long and hard to find a pair of Bears corners simultaneously playing as well as Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings. If you're going to face Calvin Johnson this is the time to do so.
  • The Lions can't run the ball. They try but they can't do it and Mikel Leshoure doesn't seem the kind of back to light up Soldier Field in prime time against a defense playing this well.
  • I do think the Lions will do a nice job on the Bears running game. They held Shady McCoy to 1.6 yard per carry. This game will need to be won by Jay Cutler.

THRIVE/SURVIVE

  •  Thrive: It is time for Jay Cutler to have his night. Against this horrendous secondary and with a confident Brandon Marshall, Cutler should be able to have one of those 100+ quarterback rating/300 yards passing nights in front of the home fans.
  • Survive. DJ Moore. The Lions starting having a great deal of success by sending Calvin Johnson into the slot and running him across the field. Unless LoveRod decide to pin Peanut to Megatron all night one might expect Moore to be man-to-man with monstrous receiver at several pivotal junctures throughout the game.

PREDICTION

What scares me about Detroit is their passing game and defensive lines are capable of getting hot and controlling the pace of a game. But they were beaten by the Eagles and Mike Vick/Andy Reid decided to let them back in the game. No quarterback is better with a big lead than Cutler and I think the Bears win by double-digits.

Chicago Bears 27, Detroit 17

  • The Bears had an opportunity to select LT Riley Reiff with their first round draft pick but instead chose Shea McClellan. I would love to see Emery proven right Monday night.

    Bears coming off a bye, Lions coming off a high.

    Bears rape 32-13.

  • I'm sure I'm not the first one to say that the bear should be mauling those kitties in that photo.

  • Because I'm sure the Bears will be mauling the kitties on Monday.

  • FIRST let me say Stafford is Lesbo overdue for a meeting with Mr. Peppers. and fuck Calvin Johnson. I'd rather have Marshall. WHY? Because Brandon Marshall is a beast and plays for Da Bears. Calvin Johnson doesn't. I like Da Bears. Thats reason enough.

  • In reply to BAM46Blitz:

    Can we ditch this "lesbo" stuff?

    I mean, yes, Stafford looks like an aging butch lesbian.

    But I, for one, appreciate lesbians and their contributions to modern society. Granted, I happen to like lipstick lesbians with hot bodies and very little clothing... but nonetheless, denigrating Stafford for looking like lesbian isn't cool.

    Call him a younger and beardless George Lucas if you must, but don't call him a "lesbo" as an insult.

    Yeah, I'm half joking and half serious.

  • In reply to BAM46Blitz:

    Shady was first, first. So clearly he broke it.

  • I'd love to see DJ Moore get a second chance at taking out Stafford who tried to rip off DJ's head after throwing an INT last time these teams got together. Wouldn't be surprised to see a brawl, the Bears need to play physical but remain diciplined.

  • In reply to Shady:

    I could see a lot of blitzes happening from DJ or Lach on 1st and 2nd downs when the Lions are using 4 WR sets, especially while the no huddle is being used.

  • In reply to EnderWiggin:

    I wonder if the refs will be calling holding penalties on Monday. They sure as shit weren't calling them against the Cheese when they played Houston.

  • In reply to Crunch Buttsteak:

    So far, it seems like the no-calls work both ways. Know what I mean? It is like the refs get together before the game and say shit like "Hey, today lets call no holding penalties but a ton of offensive interference" or "lets call holding on every second down for the first and second quarter just to see if anyone notices!"

  • fb_avatar

    Well, I'd like to be the FIRST to say, I'm lookin forward to seein Hester and Friends light it up!

  • I think 5 of us claimed first simultaneously and put the POS in another dimension. All of the posts are still invisible in my other browser. Friggin gnomes.

  • fuck that puffy-faced man muppet.

  • Watch this right now: http://fauxjohnmadden.lockerdome.com/media/101443331

    Asking LT a question on the air that (supposedly) came from Timmy Tebow... what else did you expect? Pure brilliance.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    That was funny. Much more so than I expected.

  • It would make me happy were this shit fixed before Monday...

  • A couple of more stats to add to the blogfather's llist:

    Despite winning on Sunday, the Lions were flagged FOURTEEN times for 132 yards.

    Their "We don't scare ANYBODY" secondary got a boost last week with the return of safety, Louis Delmas, but they are hurtin', big time, at cornerback. I believe they only had 3 CBs on the active roster as of yesterday.

  • Calvin Johnson is 6' 5"
    Tim Jennings is 5' 8"

    Hopefully Stafford is a little off on some of those jump balls, we'll see. Love the little guy but 9" is tough to choke down.

    Innuendo/pun intended.

  • In reply to Perno:

    Just ask my ex.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Why didn't you use all of it?

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    why didn't SHE use all of it... cause she's turrible.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    She takes half of everything.

  • In reply to Perno:

    i'd be shocked if tillman wasn't on him the whole game. it has worked in the past.

  • Bears = 27
    Detroit = 21

    It's going to be closer than you think. Not because Detroit is a better team, or because they have Calvin Johnson, not because of their D Line.

    It's because it's MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL...Historically the Bears suck on Monday Night and Jay seems to suffer as well. I hope we can all send some good MOJO and break the Monday Night Football Blues the Bears seem to get.

    I'll "wish" for a 40 to 3 Bears Mauling but I'll just "hope" for a win. I'll also hope than Peppers or Melton or Someone plant Stafford and fuck him up. I hate that pussy.

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    You clearly put no effort into researching the claims you made. Dude, just look at the MNF game the Bears played already this year. Not to mention Culer's passer rating on MNF. Not to mention Lovie's last six games coming off a bye. But don't let facts get in the way of your own opinion.

  • In reply to Shady:

    I am well aware of the "facts". As I stated above Shady, the key word is "historically". Overall Monday Night games played by the Chicago
    Bears, 50+, they are well below .500. This is a "fact" and please feel free to get off your bong and check it out yourself DUDE..

    Yeah, below .500, in my opinion, "sucks." Hopefully the "good Cutty will show up Monday.

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    easy guys. eeeeeasy!

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    Recent history, under Lovie Smith, might be a bit more relavent than going back 50 years to Armstrong, Ditka, Wanny or Jauron. Don't cha think, Dooood? Bears are 8-2 under Lovie and Jay Cutler plays better on MNF than any other day of the week. Don't take it personally mannnn, just want to make sure people were aware the Bears have played extremely well on MNF under Lovie. After byes. With Cutler at the helm.

  • In reply to Shady:

    I don't...

    I admit I slammed back a bit too hard.

    I guess MNF makes me nervous a bit for the Bears based on the "curse" of a poor overall record playing that night. Even the 85 Bears lost on MNF when no one thought they could lose any.

    I fear a Bears over confidence in this one...I hope I'm wrong.

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    No worries maing, bear down!

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    I've never liked this concept of looking at how any given franchise performs in any given game situation over the duration of its existence. Looking back more than a few seasons is a waste of time. Just look at how dramatically different the Bears roster and staff is than it was a few years ago. How the team performed in Monday Nighters ten years ago has absolutely no bearing on Monday Night's outcome. Zero.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Could have saved my post
    had yours not been hanging in the ether of the CN blog MB. How can anything operate this poorly in 2012. I can see.my house from space on my phone anytime I want. Yet these posts take 10 minutes to show up?

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    cause gnome code sucks balls.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Yeah lag is bad today.

    Regardless, your point is well taken JW.

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    Sorry Shady. That was yours.

    I hope that the punishment isn't too harsh and that Irish gets out soon enough to see his twins as adults.

    Hang in there Irish!

  • I think we put a hurting on them. I just don't think they're in our leauge this year. It might be a nerve wracking 1st half, but then I think we blow it out in the second. Just a gut feeling.

  • Goals for MNF -

    1. Victory.
    2. No Chicago injuries.
    3. The wife doesn't go into labor before, or within 3.5 hours after kickoff.
    4. Stafford fucking dead.
    5. Stafford slightly dead.
    6. Jay drinks some Tang and throws for 7 TDs. Fuck Erin.
    7. Hester runs one back (finally).

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    good luck maings. You're gonna fucking need it from now on.

    In all seriousness, it's an awesome spectacle and event. Enjoy every minute of it, it's amazing.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Wow. How late is she?

  • Not late yet...the date is the 23rd, so I hope it's right on schedule.

    Plenty noivous.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    More noivous for the labor, or MNF game, or dreading that the baby is born while the game is on?

    Congrats.

    If he is born on Sun, then we'll share a B-day, and may I then suggest "Baby Butch" as a middle name.

  • 'Tis a girl... but Butch(ette?) has a lovely ring to it. It would probably limit the number of gentlemen callers, which is a nice plus.

    Definitely more noivous for the labor. The game will hopefully be a breeeeeeze.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    I know we've discussed this before, but my daughter is the light of my fucking life maings. You'll get it once she can talk and runs to hug you screaming "Daaaaaaddyyyyyyy!" when you come home from work.

    God I love those moments.

    My son will take a bit longer, although he's coming up fast.

    You'll be fine. Listen to crown if you're squeamish. It's pretty fucking crazy seeing a small cantaloupe squeezed out of your wife's vajajay.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I've got a Daddy's Little Girl, too, and she's 85% cuter than any boy when she puts on her little Hester jersey and runs around chanting "da Bears da Bears da Bears da Bears!" She's almost 3, a little blonde ball of energy who I hope will be a lesbian--THAT will limit "gentleman callers" and I'll never have to worry about her getting knocked-up at age 15.

    My son's due around Thanksgiving, and the biggest advice I can give to anyone whose wife is prego--the biggest thing I have to remind myself--is NOT to let the wife eat beef stew while she's laboring. I won't go into details, but if you've been there for the birth of a kid, you'll know exactly why...

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Good luck Willie! Hope Mama and daughter are resting comfortably on Wed after the blessed event on Tuesday!

  • Stafford fucking dead!! Motherfucker looks like paula poundstone with a bowl cut.

    Good luck Willie! I would watch from a top-down perspective though. I'll never forget that health ed class.

  • In reply to Crown:

    Given your name I'd have thought you'd prefer the full view of the action.

  • There's hardly a chance I'm going below the belt.. though, my limitless curiosity and lack of self-control might prove otherwise.

    Bearsssssss, punny.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Good luck bro.

  • In reply to Crown:

    paula fucking poundstone.

    awesome.

  • Happy Birthday to Da Coach!

    73 years old! Not one of us would have thought he'd have hung around this long. Way to go Ditka!

  • I don't see any way we lose Monday. Cutler's QB rating against the Kitties is over 100. Best against any team. Last year they beat us in Detroit and acted like a bunch of fools (during the game and after). The Bears were so pissed about that I knew they were going to smoke them at Soldier Field. I was never so sure about a Bears victory against a pretty good team since the '80's. I knew they would come out fired up and put a hurting on those loudmouth, cheap shot assholes. Nothing has happened since to make me feel the team has mellowed towards these fuckers. We will be fired up and win going away.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    like you, I hate this team (and coach) much more than the packers canada. Got to give it up for McCarthy, at least the guy shuts his ugly maw and does his smack talking with his team on the field... and from what I've seen is classy with the press and on the sidelines.

    Oh, almost forgot... FUCK the packers too.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Damn, laaag. See below.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Martz fucking gave away that game in Detroit. I get pissed just thinking about it.

  • I already gave my "key to the games" in a previous thread, so if you're twiddling your thumbs, go there.

    Also, I know I'm supposed to hate the Pack more than the Lions, but I don't.

    There's just something about this Lions team that stinks, like something in the fridge gone bad, but can't quite locate which item. Maybe it's the douchaine HC, or the stomping Suh, or Chaz Bono at QB, or even the Lion trolls crawling out of their holes after 50 years proclaiming we'd finish last in the division...most likely, all of the above.

    But if the Lions team were a person, I'd walk right up to him and say, "I don't like your face."

  • One and a half years of hardly decent competition yet humongous douchiness does not a proper hatred make.

    Yeah, I hate the Lions... More than the Vikings... but WAY less than the Packers.

    Maybe it's because I don't know many Lions fans. Even Suh isn't enough to make the 'Braskans don the blue and silver. But cheeseheads? Those fuckers spread like fungus and stink like rotten milk.

    My hatred towards the Packers will never take 2nd place to any other team. Discount fucking double check? Favre? Charles Martin? Matthews? MAJI FUCKING KOWSKI!? (Ok, that's a stretch).

    Plus, Barry's the 2nd best RB of all time. I might even hate the Pistons more than the Lions. Give the Lions a few more years of that bitch-made attitude, and the Pistons a few more years of cellar-dwelling and I might change my mind.

    Fuck. The. Packers. Dead.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    I'm with you 1000% Willie. Forrest Gregg was a piece of work as coach. Among his classless acts was sending headhunters after kicker Kevin Butler to try and hurt him, and Mossy "I raped my wife's aunt" Cade leveling Suhey 5 seconds after a play.

    Congrats on having a baby, and best wishes with the health of Mom and the baby girl.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    With you all the way Willie. The Packers are rivals, the Lions merely victims.

    And I'll add my congrats and well-wishes to the chorus, Willie. It's gonna be awesome, man!

  • Monday night=Re-emergence of Brian Urlacher night.

    It's a dumb article, though.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Yeah, perhaps a little too soon. I'm hoping Lach will be primed in 3 weeks for the Texans, but just not sure if his knee will improve with the wear and tear of games. At least he'll be back in football condition.

  • In reply to Crown:

    too soon.

    I think he may need another few weeks maing. I hope I'm wrong and would LOVE to see it on monday.

  • here you go rabbit: http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2012/10/18/berrong-on-beer-the-pursuit-of-hoppiness-at-the-great-american-beer-festival/?hpt=hp_t3

  • So... as I read internet football article after article these days, I notice little word-viruses (virii?) that tend to infiltrate the eSpeak (iSpeak?) at an alarming rate.

    This week's word? "Drubbing".

    IT'S EVERYWHERE I FUCKING TURN.

    No one get's an ass whooping, beating, or raping anymore. Not even a simple skull fucking. Forget about catching a beatdown, getting manhandled, or proper fucked. For the purists, we don't even get any clobbered, trounced, molly wopped, or pummeled.

    All teams get a "drubbing" now, and it pisses me off.

    Bring back "destroyed" and "demolished" if we need words that start with D for proper alliteration... but pretty fucking please - let's just end the "drubbings".

    I'll take a "shellac" any day - and it sounds way mo' betta'.

    That is all.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    The Lions will get CANED on MNF like a Singapore shoplifter.

  • Approved.

    And now that we're 15+ years removed from the Singapore kid, that reference is no longer "pop cultural" but "historical".

    More no longer "pop culture" references from 1994:
       - Schwartz is acting arrogant, but he'll get Nancy Kerrigan'd.
       - The Lions secondary will get carved up like John Bobbit.
       - Stafford will get slaughtered like Ron Goldman
       - Something about shotgun formation and Kurt Cobain.
       - Lions fans will no longer support their team like Windows did MS-DOS (how you like THAT one?)
       - The "drubbing" will be less entertaining than Woodstock '94.

    Damn, '94 was a good year.

    (that rhymed)

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    "Drubbing" sounds like a euphemism for masturbation, especially when used with the phrase, "at the hands of."

    "Detroit's season effectively ended Monday night after a 42-10 drubbing at the hands of the Chicago Bears." That doesn't sound too bad.

  • I'm telling you right now. This media obsession has to fucking stop. It's so fucking out of hand that even other Bears players voice their displeasure with it. Fucking trick ass lazy motherfucking good for nothing mark ass bitches.

    The beatdown is going to be substantial. I'm not talking about 41-3, I'm talking about constant harassment of Stafford, sacks, hits, hurries, tackles for loss, gains of 1, turnovers, layouts, etc.

    Season of Destiny

  • You know this game is gonna get nasty. The Lion's D-line likes to view themselves as the bad-boy Pistons. Guess what? We got 2 guys in the interior who don't take shit. Chilo, straight from Compton, and Louis, who actually got a misdemeanor assault charge while in college, ON HIS OWN TEAMMATE (thanks Wiki).

    The Lions want to bring the nasty, bring it.

    Loved, Yo! MTV Raps as a kid

  • Me and my brother used to throw big kegger parties in my parents big back yard in college, with a kickin sound system. We'd let people play anything they wanted and my Mom would tolerate it. Except NWA. After a few songs, my easy-going Mom got totally pissed and told us to turn it off NOW! Then she scolded a bunch of people for listening to "that shit".

  • Zach Zaidman ‏@ZachZaidman
    Alshon Jeffery officially ruled out for Monday vs. Lions.

  • I think we might see some rust on Monday.. I doubt it but the Bears have been off duty for awhile.

    That being said, as much as I believe the Bears will destroy the Lions, the Bears better be ready. The Lions would love to establish themselves as the favorites for second place again with a win on Monday night. Do not let the Lions hang in there.. put them out of the game and keep them out of it.

  • No rust, just rested dudes ready to bring heat on the Lions to pound them back into last place where they belong.

    This team is pumped up and ready to play. It's pretty apparent that no one is taking anything or any prior success for granted including TIce. We simply won't give the game away like we did to GB this year and the Lions at Detroit in the previous year.

    This is going to be quick and painful.

  • Since I am a civilian.. I have to get a new license here in CA.

    We call him "The Feelin" around here. He plays damn near every genre of music well. Seen him play jam band, rock, blues, funk, soul, R&B, a little hip hop, outlaw country, NOLA style music, etc. He's called the Feelin' because of his soul. Here's his audition song. Unique take on this old standard.

  • Nah Artoo your guess sounds about right. I think mine was about $40. Now registration, taxes and insurance are all higher but thats another story. One bonus.. our property taxes are uber low!!

  • Not including what it will cost to get my motorcycle license. Tsk tsk..

    Thanks! What would be your guess on insurance for a 22 year old driver in CA with no wrecks and only one speeding ticket ?

  • How much is the medical marijuajah card?

    Buy one of those. Get a nice stereo, a big tv, a playstation, and a motorcycle game. Fuck the motorcycle.

  • In reply to Crunch Buttsteak:

    Become a couch potato, that's my advice.

    No don't do that. Get a surfboard or collect biological specimens or something. Monterey is a nice place (from what I hear; I've never been there). Don't go tearing through it on some noisy piece of shit that may paralyze you. The surfboard may paralyze you too, but more quietly, so it won't bother the rest of us, and more mercifully, because you'll probably drown.

    Matthew Stafford has thrown 4 TD passes this season.

    That would been NONE to Megatron AND 1 less than the Bear defense has returned for scores.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    +1 to the Bears D.

    Damn, it's hard to get some flow going on the site when this post will take 10 minutes to process. Very annoying.

  • So, I just got home from dinner at a nice italian joint in manhattan called Naples 45. Not hoity toity, but pretty upscale. I go to the bathroom to take a piss and some one shit in the urinal. There was nothing wrong with the toilet. My mind is totally blown. I had to share this and didn't know of a better outlet than the blog.

    What happened to the Thursday contest? You scurred Jeff?

  • In reply to Crown:

    I haven't seen that since I was about 10.

  • In reply to Crown:

    There are some things better left unshared.

  • Can't tell if these defences are really good, or if the offenses are just rancid.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    A little bit of both but I know the Seahawks and 49ers only have a run game on offense...

  • I cannot wait until Monday night. I'll have both of my Lion loving brothers-in-law over for burgers and overly hoppy beer. It could be worse, but I have nobody in my extended family that roots for the Packers. They are not family if they cheer on the Packers.

    One of my BIL's complained that he wishes that I would hate the Lions as much as I hate the Packers. Not really possible.

  • have to agree with irish... alex smith SUCKS.

  • Not only did the shitting in the urinal incident occur, but I saw a Spanish guy doing the Bartman on my walk home.

  • In reply to Crown:

    I once took a shit.in an elevator on a drunken college dare. We sat in the lobby watching unsuspecting victims stroll in and freak out. The best part? We hear the elevator go up, a minute later, ding, door opens, chick walks out like nothing happened. The buildings only three stories tall. So she's riding with that log rather than go.down two flights of stairs max. I have never laughed that hard or for that long since.

  • is it just me or does tice sound like Jeff Bridges...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    He does. He's built more like John Goodman.

  • Damn, this is horrible. It may cost you some tee-shirt sales, Jeff.
