Three under-the-radar Bears that could surprise Packers defense

Last year, in the aftermath of a 51-45 OT playoff loss to the Cardinals, Cheeseheads across the nation dreamt of the heights their team could achieve if they only had a defense. Flash forward to 2010 – the Pack has the #2 ranked scoring defense in the league, allowing only 15 points per game. Not […]

8 purely emotional reasons why Bears will beat Seahawks

Every week here at Bears Gab, I break down opposing teams’ strengths, weaknesses and statistical rankings in an attempt to rationalize why the Bears will or won’t have success against a particular team. Most of the time, I royally suck at this. For example, there’s the time I predicted… A low-scoring affair with the Jets, […]

Forget Cutler – Peppers holds keys to Bears Super Bowl drive

A lot of folks want to pin the Bears’ Super Bowl hopes squarely on the shoulders of Jay Cutler. There’s a prevailing feeling that Cutler doesn’t have to be spectacular for the Bears to survive and advance – just smart.

Bears to host Seahawks in Divisional Playoff

Capitalizing on a season of fortunate bounces, the Bears received another favor from their arch enemy. With the Packers victory over the Eagles in Philly on Sunday, the Bears earned the right to host a sub-.500 team in the Divisional round of the playoffs. The Seattle Seahawks will make a return trip to Soldier Field […]

Why Jay Cutler will silence critics during Bears playoff run

Jay Cutler drives me crazy. Watching him engineer (and/or screw up) drives causes me to have an inner dialogue that goes something like this… Jay Cutler sucks. No wait, I didn’t mean that. He’s the best passer of balls the quarterback-starved Bears have had in 20+ years and we’re lucky to have him. But damnit, […]

Predicting the entire 2010 NFL playoffs

Bears Gab was one of a very select few to predict a double-digit win and playoff season for the Bears in 2010.
