Footballic Ramblings: Very Abbreviated Bears-Giants Preview

Footballic_Ramblings2.jpg Apologies for the lateness and brevity of this preview. Sickness and work and excuses have me a little behind the eight ball. The Giants have been tough to figure out thus far, spanking Carolina, getting handled by the juggernaut that is Indianapolis and dropping a fairly decisive match to Tennessee last weekend. I'm not sold that this squad is great or even average and the Bears are showing a lot of tendencies that suggest they'll beat the teams they should be, ie: this Giants team. In any case, the Bears should handle the Giants. I know, new stadium, road game, Giants are due, et cetera. Still, the Giants weaknesses are so ripe for exploitation by this Bears team:

  • Applesauce soft offensive line means Julius Peppers will spear Eli Manning with his helmet.
  • Applesauce NY secondary means Cutler Bot 5000 continues his season of rebooted excellence.
  • Matt Forte/Chester Taylor will likely score a rushing touchdown to get the Bears off the schneid for the first time since the middle of last season.

Again apologies for the brief, brief preview. I promise a more than adequate review at some point on Monday. Happy weekend and leave some comments for crying out loud.
