If the Seahawks can slow down Chicago's rushing attack and pressure Cutler, we will be in the game. Seahawks have to continue to be smart with the ball and have no turnovers. We didn't turn the ball over at Miami last week and the Bears have forced 33 turnovers, the most in the NFL. We'll see what gives. LOL.
Malcolm Smith is more reactive than instinctive when it comes to playin the OLB position. The Bears will try to exploit his inexperience. Bryant,s foot is still bothering him, so I expect he will see limited action. Our D will have their hands full with Chicago's runners. Not trying to be a " Negative Nancy " here, but Wilson has to have his " A " game working today, or the day is going to be long and hard. After last weeks showing, our D needs to show up in full force. With Browner and Sherman facing possible suspensions, our playoff hopes are all but gone. I can only hope that the appeals can drag out for the duration of the season.
This team has left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I'm very disappointed in our "star" corners. The difference between where we started and where we are now is equal to trying to fart and actually crapping your pants.
All in all, the Hawks have a better than 50-50 chance to win today. Our season however, hangs in the balance of appeals pending. If the Hawks don't give Cutler too much respect and give receivers too much cushion, the Hawks can win today.
It's okay to have an open mind. Just not so open that your brains fall out.
