Default 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.

Any word on Timmons? If we got Timmons back, he could be a big boost to the pass coverage so Harrison can focus on the QB

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.

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.
