Bears Stomp Bucs, Packers are Next!

The Chicago Bears played a strong game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and won 13-10. It wasn’t a high scoring game and Chris Simms made some great plays for the Bucs. The Bears defense won this game with their fierce pass rush, sacking Simms four times, and by allowing the Buccaneers only one touchdown. Tampa Bay had a chance to tie the game and things got pretty tense on this fans couch, but Bucs’ kicker Matt Bryant missed a field goal in the final minutes, sealing their fate. This is our seventh consecutive win and we are planning on Green Bay being the eighth.

The Bears are coming off a hard schedule and have long awaited this rivalry match up with the Green Bay Packers. It is no secret that Brett Favre and the Packers are not having the best season. Nonetheless we are taking this game very seriously and will add the Packers to our list of wins next Sunday.

Defense Wins the Day

The Chicago Bears were stellar against the Carolina Panthers using their number one ranked defense to shut out the number one ranked team in the NFC South. The Carolina Panthers were held to three points just as we did to the Vikings earlier in the season. Alex Brown was on fire with two sacks and Adewale Ogunleye got three sacks for the game which helped him to surpass Brian Urlacher for highest number of sacks on the Bears team. Kyle Orton had a lot of time in the pocket as the Panthers defense failed to break through the Bears’line once, earning no sacks this game. The Bears showed that they are a determined and disciplined team proving why they have the best defense in the league.

Blowing Out the 49ers

The infamous high winds of Chicago, Illinois made an appearance at Sunday’s game and fought an angry defense against both sides. Nathan Vasher, in a moment of genius, anticipated the wind’s effect on a field goal kick and caught the ball as it was blown off course. He ran 108 yards to score a touchdown for the Chicago Bears. The San Francisco 49ers never knew what hit them as the wind aided the Bears in their 17-9 win. With all the havoc the wind was making we still saw a skillful and organized game from the Bears as we have these past five wins. Can they keep this intensity into the playoffs?
