Surprisingly little chatter this week about dah Bears, so here we are...
My brain wishes the Falcons luck, but my gut fears the Bears may be too much for them. Chicago may have the best defense we face this year; they’re 3rd in yards allowed per pass and 7th in yards allowed per rush. If the Bears get after Ryan the way Tampa or Carolina did, it could be a long day. Fortunately, Chicago's offense is pretty average. If we can snag a timely turnover or two, perhaps we might parlay that into a low scoring upset win; I don’t think the Falcons win a shootout type game, especially if White can’t play.
The Bears will likely be our toughest test yet, and I can’t rationalize setting the bar very high on Sunday. I just want to see a spirited game without a lot of mistakes, and watch this team continue to make a little progress each week. A win would be a welcome bonus.
That's my wildly uninformed and optimistic 2 cents worth. Go Falcons!
