Default Seattle Seahawks @ Chicago Bears

Game talk for the 2nd NFC divisional match here.

I dont see a great deal of hope for the Hawks in this one, the Bears dominating D will be too much for a Hawks offense that relies heavily on timing patterns and Shaun Alexander to run the ball effectively.

Im not convinced they can do either today.

Grossman is the type of QB whose whole game is set up by the way the first few drives go - if he gets success and completes a good % of his throws then he'll gain confidence - if he has a bad start, a high amount of incompletions or an INT then he could be done for the day as a scoring threat.

I expect the Bears to try and dominate with the running game, and play safety first football - short dump offs even on 3rd and long situations.

They key will be not to turn the ball over and give up points or a short field to Seattle, they will rely on their D to make enough plays to get them the points they need.

Alexander has struggled all year (last years effort may be catching up on him) and his only gaining 3.6 ypc./

This in turn has taken away one of Hasselbecks security blankets - and he has responded by looking shaky and unconvincing.

Mind you, I thought the Ravens would dominate yesterdays game against the Colts..and this figures to be the NFC version of that match up.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

The Bears will live or die on the arm of Rex Grossman....If the Seahawks present even a "decent" defense....they will win this game....
I dont think that the Bears need to play to win...just play to not lose...

Do not hold out much hope for a competitive game, but since the forecast is for a "wintry mix" at least I will get the enjoyment of watching a playoff game in wintry weather that I always will associate with memories of playoff games at TRS in the 1970s.

Seattle are making a decent fist of this.

I'd like to see more fire from their O-Line, though - they are letting way too many bodies rush up the middle at Chicago.

Hasselbeck looks composed so far, Grossman doesn't.

WOW! 68 yard TD

He got hit at around the 7 yard line and was able to maintain his balance long enough to make it into the endzone

Teams always lose when they play not to lose
