Jay, Earl and DJ return to the scenes of their collegiate crimes. Four final thoughts:
- If the Bears don’t disrupt the rhythm of Matt Hasselbeck, he will dissect them. Hasselbeck has taken what Lovie’s defense gives him for a decade and he’s got the group of receivers in Tennessee who’ll sit underneath the corners and move the chains. They may not score touchdowns but they’ll keep the football.
- One of these weeks we’re going to get a 350+ yard performance from Jay Cutler. I thought it was coming against Detroit until he was slammed to the ground. This Tennessee defense is one of the worst in football and the table is set.
- If the Bears run the ball 30-35 times, they win. Easily.
- I have never quite experienced anything like this weekend in Nashville. It literally seems like the town is entirely populated by Bears fans. Made me very proud.
P.S. I am going to do my best to get a postgame wrap-up of some kind up here either tonight or tomorrow morning. But if I don’t, forgive me. I’m Honky-Tonkin’. Make sure you follow me on Twitter – @DaBearsBlog – for my instantaneous updates from inside LP Field and beyond.
