Bears D is going to shut Peyton Manning out. Double digits ain't even going to happen here :wink: .

Honestly though I got $100 on the Bears already, they best come through. Papa needs a new bag.

...Only if the colts had played against a team with a defense as good or better than the Bears' during this playoff run.

There are several prominent X factors to this game which make it a hard one to predict.

Which Rex Grossman will show up Sunday? The one with a >100 passer rating or the one with a passer rating of 0? Will he panic when pressured? Be willing to take a sack or throw a pick in desperation?

Which Colt defense shows up? The defense that was deemed statiscly the worst run defense in history or the defense that magicly appeared in the postseason?

I'm not sure who to root for. I'd like the Colts to win mainly because I've grown tired of hearing about how Peyton Manning needs to win the big one to silence his critics. However I've always rooted for the NFC team with very few exceptions and I do like the style of the Bears play and their history of producing great linebackers and running backs.

I expect a good game. I doubt this one will be decided before halftime like the last superbowl game the bears played in was.

Can't forget about the Windy City Flyer, Devin Hester either...I think the colts gave up some crazy yards on special teams this year...all the sports channels have been touting hester as a possible game shifter this sunday! I think it will be a good game as well and hopefully no one will get slaughtered out there...

So you're telling me that the Raven's defense was chopped liver? They kept the Colts from scoring a single touchdown all game.

heh, that superbowl was over when new england beat miami in the playoffs.

marino's read speed and release was way too fast for the bears D line to get pressure that year and showed the holes in the bear's secondary. granted, that year he was the only qb in the league who was able to do that.

i believe this year the winner will be determined more by failure than success.

will rex grossman suck more than the colt's defense can suck on a bad day?
can the bears play a flawless game of defense?
will manning's head explode under pressure?

basically, the colts D will have to suck to have grossman do well. if grossman sucks bad enough, the colts defense can just suck less.

on the other side of the ball, if manning's head explodes, the bears d will win the game and the colts d will not prevail.

if the bears make any defensive big mistakes that leaves the door open.

my guess is that the score will be like 16-9 regardless of who wins, although it could go as high as like 23-13 if one side manages to score on defense/special teams

No, I'm saying the Raven's have a badass defense, they didn't allow any touchdowns and still lost. Conclusion: Even if the bear's D show up,they are still going to have a tough time beating the colts.

I don't disagree with this point. However your prior post charged that the Colts did not face a defense as good as the Bears' D throughout their playoff run. I would be totally shocked if the Bears were able to keep the Colts out of the endzone all game like the Ravens did. The Ravens lost because they could do nothing on offense themselves and trying to win a field goal contest against Adam Viniateri is a recipe for defeat.

...I probably should have used the sarcasm tags. But it looks like we are in agreeance. Bears fans...expect a big day from D. Freeney.

My Suer Bowl predictions:

Cocktail weenies will be very popular again this year, as will chips and some sort of nacho cheese dip.

I'll make a joke about how, "You just can't beat the spread," but I'll be referencing food rather than the score of the game.

My wife will ask me several times who's playing, even though she doesn't care and she knows I don't really care either.

Apple will have an add that Mac heads will think is the greatest thing since the two button mouse, but everyone else will just think it's mildly clever.

Budwiser will have an incredibly annoying, yet super effective add.

Coke will have an incredibly cute and annoying, yet super effective add.

I'll get a tummy ache.

We'll leave the party before the 4th quarter so we can watch our DVR'd shows from last week.
