Week 8 Recap:
Even the best kicker in the league can have a bad game. Eddy had a chance to win it for us and he missed. Could Nagy have made it a little easier on him? Yes, but he still needs to knock that kick in. It doesn’t help that Mitch turned the ball over twice and the O couldn’t score on 75 tries in the RedZone.
It wasn’t pretty but the talk all week has been about going 1-0 this week and that is what we are going to do.
All-Time Head to Head:
The Bears own the Eagles lifetime at 29-15-1 but the Eagles have won the last 4 meetings including that bullshit win in the playoffs last season. It’s time for the Bears to get back on track on the season and against the Eagles.
Today we are out for revenge.
Bear Weather Report:
Wind WNW 11 mph
The Bears are 3-4. It’s not because of bad play calling, or bad QB play, or not being able to run the ball. It is 100% because the weather has sucked every week this season. Another warm and sunny day. This is not how football was meant to be played. I wish it was called global cooling.
You Bet Your Ass:
This is the first time all season that the Bears are underdogs and that is huge insult. This is big time bulletin board material for Matt Nagy. I would be shocked if the Bears didn’t go into Philly and win this one going away. Take the Bears getting 4, the under, and laugh your way all the way to the bank.
Bonus bet: Take the Chargers getting 3.5 at home against the Packers. The Packers fluke is ready to be exposed.
Fantasy Start ‘em Sit ‘em:
Mitch Trubisky The Eagles secondary is trash. This is a get right game for Mitch and while I don’t think he has a monster game he should throw for a TD and run for one.
Allen Robinson A-Rob is going to be the beneficiary of a good Mitch game. 100+ yards and a tuddy coming for him today.
Bears D/ST Carson Wentz is a couple of notches below Nick Foles both on the field and in shoe size. Do you remember Khalil Mack? Today Mack will start his run at DPOY with a couple of sacks and a forced fumble.
Carson Wentz He might grab a little garbage time points but other than that I would rank him outside my top 20 this week. We’ll see if he even survives to finish the game.
Howard Jordan All this revenge game talk is a bunch of bullshit. The Bears D is going to hold Howard to under 50 yards and 0 TDs.
Alshon Jefferies Kyle and Prince are going to lock him up and shut him down all game. You’d be better off starting Robert Davis at WR than Jefferies.
Offense: They were such a better team with Foles than they are with Wentz. I know they are coming off of a decent game against the Bills and they think they are turning it around but there is only room for 1 team to turn it around today and that team is the Bears. The Chicago D is going to demoralize the Eagles organization.
Defense: The run D is decent but the pass D is garbage and Mitch is going to pick it apart. This D is as average as it get.
Offense: It is time for the offense to flip the switch. No more fucking around. If we are going to make our run for a Super Bowl Mitch, Monty, A-Rob, etc all need to take their games to another level and dominate.
Defense: Still the best in the league. I’m expecting a big game from these guys today. I feel like we haven’t seen the real Mack in a while and no better time than now for him to show up.
The Chicago Italian beef sandwich is far far superior to the Philadelphia Cheese Steak. Go get yourself a delicious beef for the game.
Coming Up Next Week: The Lions come to Soldier’s Field for the first of 2 ass whoopins.
