This story reminds me of Baltimore a few years ago, beat it on defense and keep your offense on the field long enough with possession time to score enough to win with a below-average quarterback and an excellent coach. I’m looking at this team hard, but I still passed them against an overrated Tampa Bay team this weekend and I’m still kicking myself. Let’s take a look at the leading NFC North Bears and see what happens to these guys. Are they real or not? Does it reflect the Ravens when they won everything with Trent Dilfer at quarterback? Read me while I do some research here.

The defense stands out more than anything else and it should, ranks # 1 in total yards allowed and scoring defense, and # 6 against the run. With a constant stream of great DBs who are opportunistic and talented, most teams have trouble throwing the ball because the Bears can stack the line against the run and play with man coverage, which in the NFL is great. advantage. Did I mention Mike Brown and Nathan Vasher as cornerback or Brian Urlacher as linebacker? Three of the best at their positions in the NFL, breakneck speed, hard hitters and all the leaders who make big plays when they count. This defense is disruptive and difficult to plan with so many players making great plays, no team is going to enlighten them. Sound like a crow a few years ago?

Let’s take a look at offense now, and it’s nothing pretty except an obvious statistic, and that’s the sixth in the NFL to run the ball. They rank last to throw it at 128 yards per game, and 28th in the NFL in scoring, yet they are 8-3 and clearly in demand from the NFC North, with Green Bay available in Chicago this weekend and the Pack. is back. hot on their heels here, he can’t run and Brett Farve throws interceptions like no other right now, 19 to date. Good luck to the pack, in the second leg of back-to-back games after a loss to the Eagles.

Kyle Orton isn’t impressive at QB, but once again comparing these guys to the Ravens when they won the Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer at QB, Dilfer wasn’t Joe Montana either. The ONLY concern is if the defense fails here for the Monsters of the Midway, because this offense is not designed to score points in groups or play from behind with a 63.2-rated QB with a 54% completion rate and 12 picks. for 9 touchdowns, however, they can run it, and they’ll have Cedric Benson back for the playoffs as a running back to add depth. Again, it’s not a prolific offense, but once again, it doesn’t have to be. Does this sound like the Ravens still, when they won the Super Bowl? The answer is YES, the Bears are real and, in my opinion, they are still somewhat undervalued by bettors.

The remaining schedule is also favorable, with Green Bay at home and the other home game against Atlanta in 2 weeks. You definitely want the Falcons on the road in the cold December air in Chicago, a huge bonus. The road games in Green Bay and rising Minnesota are very easy to win, while a real test is in Pittsburgh next Sunday. Assuming they can go 3-2 or 4-1 SU in those games. and gaining some home-court advantage in the first round of the Playoffs, the Bears end up in Seattle if it goes according to plan for a possible NFC Championship. We all saw what happened to Seattle against the Giants defense on Sunday, the Bears have a real shot at getting an NFC Championship based on what I saw, it’s about Seattle and Chicago. Are they better than the Bears of 1985? No, they aren’t, especially on offense, and defense, while good, lacks Buddy Ryan’s knack for explaining the schematics. All things considered, don’t be surprised this team is making its way into the Playoffs, making money in the minors, and if there’s a chance, bet some short numbers with them and rack up some cash.
