I have toiled with this matchup for many days now. Part of me felt that the bears were a veteran ballclub with savvy beyond Rex Grossman’s ineptitude. Other parts of me felt the Chargers pathetic preseason performance by the secondary would give Rex, Bernard and Moose plenty of space to roam for TDs. And still other parts of me felt the Bears D can shut down the Bolts’ O.
Then I woke up.
The Chargers are far too powerful for the Bears. The only player I’m scared of is Hester. But even he can’t win a game on his own, or can he (ask Louisville or Duke)?
Still, I stand strong on my gut feeling. The Bolts are too much for the Bears.
Peep the preview format for the season, where this week I rate the O, D and ST on a scale of Bushisms.
