I always like the Chicago Bears. And they’re going for three straight and .500 at the bye! What’s not to like?
John Fox and Dowell Loggains need to walk into the Superdome Sunday assuming the Saints are going to score in the 20s. Why? Because the Saints always score in the 20s. We’re talking about a team, playing at home, that is:
If Fox/Loggains operate the same offensive mathematical equation…
(Run for 2 + Run for 1) x [3rd-and-7 Throw Under Obvious Pressure] = Success?
…they’ll find themselves chasing the game. And the Bears are NOT built to chase any game.
Halftime of MNF & Eagles lead. If they win, Bears will be one game back of the second wild card. And that team has Brett Hundley at QB.

DaBearsBlog is celebrating a birthday in New Orleans this weekend. Should anything of note happen in Bearsland, I’ll be sure to put something up. Otherwise I will be spending my weekend on the 15th at English Turn, cozying up on the front corner stool at Napoleon House and gorging on Willie Mae’s fried chicken.
Picks for the weekend:
3-1 picking winners last weekend. But a miserable 1-3 ATS.
Falcons -4.5 over Seahawks
Patriots -15.5 over Texans
Chiefs -1.5 over Steelers
Packers +4.5 over Cowboys (Dallas 30, Packers 28)
(1) I was once, as a younger man, in New Orleans for Halloween with the great Lou Casillas and a reverend who used to spend some time around here. New Orleans for any night is the greatest party of your life but on Halloween its a special party. In my infinite wisdom I booked a flight back to New York early the next morning – the worst morning of my life. That was a Saturday. I returned to my friend Lou’s apartment and fell fast asleep, at 3 pm, in the same clothes I’d flown in. Sunday morning I awoke to the knowledge of the Bears playing the Detroit Lions, realized I’d need to be in a bar to watch it and thought, “Ugh.” That was the last time BEFORE THIS MORNING I felt that way the morning of a Bears game.
