View Full Version : Bears are beatable

Im watching the Packers/Bears game and the Bears are favored this season to make the playoffs and even Super Bowl again.
I feel we stand a good chance against them next week and they don't look as great as every one says.
1. Cutlers falters from pressure. He has thrown 3 INT's so far when the Packers blitzed and he goes Incomplete or sacked when they sack.
2. There pass defense still lacks big time. They are getting killed over the middle and screen plays would work.
3.Forte is a good back, but if we can shut him down and make Cutler one dimensional and force him to pass the picks and sacks will only keep coming.

The only problem is the Bears defense is ferocious and have been getting to Rogers and there run game. Were gonna have to start off passing and open up holes and the OL has to show up. Even possibly stretching the run game to the outside would produce yardage.

Make no mistake about it - Lovie Smith will have da Bears ready to rumble. However, if we can stop Hester from going to the house on a K/PR and limit Forte to under 50 yards, there should be no reason why the Steelers can't beat them. The only way I see them losing is if they beat themselves with boneheaded penalties and not taking advantage of opportunities given to them.

I know our ST defense will be able to hold Hester down and if its a problem we will kick away from him. Hester on offense could be a problem, but Ike Taylor should hold his load and the rest of the Wide Outs aren't the best!
Forte yes is a darn good back, but our defense was made to kill the run and they don't have the up front talent to hold our D so he won't be productive.

So attack Cutler with our unique blitzing and hold the run game and our offense should produce enough points to hold them off. We need to have a balanced attack and get "some" rushing yards so Ben can tear up the weak secondary.

And yes as well we need to play our game and not make any dumb mistakes and commit a lot of penalties. Ben shouldn't have a problem throwing the ball and the Bears are also losing alot of players to injury tonight which is a plus. :tt03::drink:

As long as the Steelers contain or prevent the big plays i have a tough time seeing the Bears winning. 0-1 and being the home opener against the champs they will have extra incentive and be a bit more fired up but i think they might have too many holes in their team to come out on top.

I didn't see the entire Bears - Packers game but from what i did see it seemed as though Cutler made quite a few poor decisions (only saw 2 of the picks) throwing into multiple coverage often.

I don't know how many times last year Royal and Marshall bailed Cutler's dumbass out by making awesome plays on poorly thrown balls or bad decisions by Cutler last year.

The Bears don't have very good receivers. Nobody is going to make a huge play to bail Cutler out in Chicago. Franchise quarterback my ass.

You can bet there are those out there that say Cutler is better than Ben. Cutler is a tool who cannot handle pressure. We will eat him alive. I just hope that Ben doesn't get killed because Ogunleeae (sp) looked pretty darn good. Colon and Essex better be ready to rock.

09-13-2009, 11:51 PM
My 2 cents:

Cutler looked lousy but we can't count on that week in and week out. I expect he'll bounce back and won't throw 4 picks.

Their DB's can't handle our receivers

Their receivers are nothing special.

The Steelers don't have John Kuhn to open holers in the running game. Packers only ran for 76 yards WITH Kuhn.:flap:

Me neither. We've also had an annoying tendency in the past to lay some absolute eggs on the road and lose to teams whose asses we should've kicked all over the field (Oakland '06, Denver '07, Jets '07, to name 3).

Jay Cutler threw four INTs tonight, and that doesn't even consider all the passes he threw into coverage that could have been picked off. I think Dick LeBeau will embarrass him, but we need everybody on our offense -- Ben included -- to play a crisper game than they did to open the season.

Cutler has been crowned the next great QB by so many but I liked what Deon Sanders said about him and that was he has not done anything. Cutler could have had 8 Int's last night. I think like others if we shut down the run we should be ok. My only concern is how well will our O-line Run & Pass block!


I see the Steelers winning this and only a huge amount of mistakes on our part will cost us this game.

Bears defense will be good but so will . I see 14 points for the Steelers by special teams and defense. Should be a good one.

Does anyone think that Chicago is a Superbowl team? Now we still need to play smart by shutting down their run and not giving them a freebe TD from Hester in the return game. I don't see us running the ball that well against their D either, but paaing enough to win by double digit points. 21-10 Steelers

Bears' Urlacher Out for the Season
Chicago Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher said he will miss the rest of the 2009 season after dislocating his right wrist during the Bears' 21-15 loss to the Green Bay Packers last night.

Urlacher was scheduled to have surgery to put the dislocated bone back in place.

The Bears also lost linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa for a few weeks to a sprained PCL, which as Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune notes, could mean that Lance Briggs moved to middle linebacker.

Urlacher and Pisa being out is great news for our OL. They need to just step up this week and give the run game a little room and let Parker do the rest.
Cutler fails under pressure as well so im sure well see plenty of exotic blitzes by King Dick to force turnovers.

I will add my .02 because the homerism for the Steelers goes to the point of blind fanatacism...

Willie is not as fast as he used to be... he is more hesitant to take a direct hit... and his ability to break a tackle is sorely lacking. I am not in any way saying he is a bad RB... BUT I do believe he can only excel with a great O-Line that can open seams for him to run in. Our O-Line looks slow and confused, whether that is talent or coaching I cannot say, but against the Titans we looked pretty bad and out of step. If we want to run the ball then we need to open up lanes... not continually pull when our linemen don't appear quick enough or agile enough to get to the edge and seal it for Willie. If our O-Line doesn't step up against Chicago it will be another nail biter as we are all accustomed to... 17-13 Steelers again in a close one that comes down to a final drive to decide it. If we are lucky we will get 60 yards rushing and Roethlisberger will have to shoulder another 40 attempt day for 350+ passing yards.

Flame suit ON!

I don't think you're going to get flamed for that.

I am starting to think "Fast" Willie needs to get renamed "Quick" WIllie.

He has has always had problems running against good run defenses. He will run for 200 against a bad team, and be lucky to get 30 against the Ravens.

Now with the really bad offensive line, he will have trouble running against some of the bad teams.

And the truth is, every running back needs an offensive line that can open some holes to run through. Thursday night, ours didn't open any. Not even Jerome Bettis could have done anything in that game.

If the line doesn't figure it out, we're going to have another big passing game Sunday against the Bears. Hell, we might anyhow because I think their secondary is sorta week and Ben can have a field day against them with that pump fake he has.

Yeah he could. He could've at least gotten back to the line of scrimmage.

OK, so he wouldn't have gotten a lot of yards. But just by not dancing so goddamn much that you LOSE yardage most of the time, that would've been good for an extra 20-25 on top of Willie's total right there.

Seriously half of the reason for this bullshit where "OMG, NOBODY could run the ball when they're getting swarmed in the backfield like that!!!!!" is because Parker dances around like a fag and lets the defenders come to him. You're not going to be very good that way unless your OL is manhandling people, which no one can do against decent teams. That's when you need a different running style.

Even if Ben has to come out and Sling for 40 attempts and throw for over 300 yards I don't mind it against the Bear because they secondary lacks the skill set and have been burned deep by Green Bay.
Im not worried yet. Our OL will settle down and learn their plays, but for now im taking it one game at a time and after Sunday is over we will see how we stand with the OL problems.

The other is Olin Kreutz (292 lbs) vs Casey Hampton.

Then there is always Chris Williams who I think is a tall athletic lineman, but not an overly stout guy against the bull rush. Woodley is gonna push him into the backfield big time!!!

Honestly, the Bear defense is good, but they have lost Urlacher and if they only bring 4, then the O line can get some time for Ben to pass. I'd really like to see Arians pull both Miller and Kemo from left to right and lead for Mendenhall /Parker. It worked great last season.

This game won't be a pushover by any means.

We need Fox to step up again, and the front 7, to shut down the run. The Bears were stupid to get pass-happy the whole first half against the Pack. I see them going back to Forte and the ground game.

This might be the game to let Ben open up with the no-huddle, shotgun and burn them deep early. I don't see how slamming Willie up the gut will do much good against them, unless he can get outside.

But I think we have every right to be confident in our team, even a bit c0cky.

The Packers are just starting to run a 3-4 defense. We have been running one since the 1980's.

We have the best damn 3-4 defensive coordinator in football running the defense, and Mike Tomlin gives him free reign over the D.

We have two of the best damn pass rushers in football playing OLB...and they will abuse the Bears tackles.

Ben has won more games in his first five seasons than any other quarterback in NFL history - that's how overrated he is.
Those two SB trophies are a mirage too, I guess.

The Bears ar VERY beatable...they have a horrible WR corps, an average offensive line, and an overrated defense that will be missing a key cog.

What the Steelers need to do is at leat take a look at what Packers DC Dom Capers did to the Bears. And before you say it...Yes, we have the best DC in football, but Capers is a very competant coach and had the perfect game plan against the Bears.

The Packers shut down the TE's, forcing Cutler to go to his Wr's. Capers also kept switching from the 3-4 to the 4-3 to a nickel package throughout the game, which ate up the o-line.

Being only 1 1/2 hours from Chicago..I can tell you that the local press there is worried...but so are the fans, The general consensus there is that the Bears could win on Sunday...but probably wont. They have their fingers crossed that our line is completely inept, and that the loss of Polamalu will allow Cutler to find TE Greg Olson open throughout the day. The realist's are all saying that our defense is too stout and that even without a running game, Ben will eat CB Nasthan Vasher alive and throw all day.

This is why Cutler is no longer in Denver.... After the game conference with Cutler...

From the Chicago Tribune:

Who is going to tell him? Who is going to get in Jay Cutler's face and inform him the Green Bay debacle was ridiculous?

The four interceptions in Sunday's opener were a career high, but the poor decision-making and the recklessness were nothing new. He did that periodically with the Broncos. It's up to someone in the Bears' organization to tell him that being blessed physically is not a license to throw risky passes over and over again.

But for the life of me, I can't figure out who that person would be.

It's also up to someone in the organization to tell Cutler that his on- and off-field demeanor needs to change. Some TV analysts were annoyed by Cutler's attitude in the press conference after the Bears' 21-15 loss to the Packers. The attitude is nothing new either.

"I thought he looked completely immature," former Saints and Colts coach Jim Mora said on the NFL Network. "He acted like he didn't even care."

Added former Rams coach Mike Martz: "He just doesn't get it. He doesn't understand that he represents a great head coach and the rest of those players on that team. Somebody needs to talk to him."

If you have been led to believe it's all about you -- if a team bets its future to acquire you and then gives you smooches at every turn -- it might be hard to listen to someone tell you it isn't all about you.

But that's the situation Cutler and the Bears find themselves in after exactly one game.

So who's going to tell him he needs to change?


Great QB in Cutler...... Please......

Go Ben... We Win this One Big....

Is anyone else more excited to see Logan return kicks than anything else this Sunday? I just can't wait to see him in the open field again.

Payne benched in Bears secondary shakeup

Posted by ESPN.com’s Kevin Seifert

Chicago is continuing to fiddle with its defensive secondary, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Sun-Times and ESPN Chicago colleague Jeff Dickerson

Danieal Manning has reclaimed his job as the starting free safety, a job he held before a hamstring injury sidelined him in training camp. And in a surprise, rookie Al Afalava will remain the starter at strong safety in the new lineup. Veteran Kevin Payne, who has started 18 consecutive games dating back to 2007 games, has been benched.

Not to take anything away from Afalava, but you would think the Bears would want maximum experience on the field this Sunday against Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Yet as Biggs points out, Payne bit on a play-action fake during Green Bay receiver Greg Jennings’ 50-yard touchdown pass Sunday night at Lambeau Field.

Manning handled the nickel position against the Packers and it’s possible he’ll remain in that role against the Steelers. If he does, you wonder if he’ll continue to return kickoffs. Dickerson suggests that rookie speedster Johnny Knox could pick up those duties.

Sunday’s loss led to a 50 percent turnover in the Bears’ secondary. Cornerback Nate Vasher, who slipped while covering Jennings on the touchdown, has also been benched and replaced by second-year player Zack Bowman.

Slice and dice em Ben.

Another Bears board ...



Ben as a qb is soooo overrated...

I think Ogun can tear him a new booty hole

I predict we rout the sorry ass Steelers and stick humble pie right up Martzs' squeeky bitchin ass

How can they say Ben is overrated, when they have the most overrated QB in the league. Cutler 1 good year stats wise, and lead his team to an impressive 8-8 season. They will learn the true meaning of overrated very shortly.

Not to mention that their last (and as far as I can recall at the moment only) great QB was Sid Luckman. They wouldn't know a great QB if they fell over one. :coffee:
