MY BELOVEDS: LAMBS TO THE SLAUGHTER
CATEGORY: CHICAGO BEARS

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
By elvenstar522

For the first time in many years, I almost feel like missing my Beloved’s game on TV. It is going to be too painful to watch as Brett Favre – a man on a mission from the Football Gods – carves up, slices, dices, masticates, and spits out the Bears secondary on his merry way to the playoffs and perhaps the Super Bowl appearance he so devoutly seeks.

History says that this is the 171st meeting between the Packers and the Bears, a storied rivalry that only the Packers seem to take seriously anymore. Bears-Packers games used to be gladiator bouts with genuine hate expressed on the field with filthy play, late hits, cheap shots, “bounties” paid for injuring a particular player on the other team, and other niceties not seen much in this sanitized age of robo-players and stifling corporate conformity.

Coach Lovie endeared himself to true Bears fans when, at his welcoming press conference, some of the first words out of his mouth were not “Super Bowl” but “Beat the Packers.” Not since Ditka had a Bears coach placed any emphasis at all on beating the team in Puke Green and Diarrhea Yellow. Succeeding coaches had laughably told the press that the Green Bay games were “just another game” – as if the Packers didn’t think that beating the Bears was more important than life. The result was predictable. No matter how good the Bears were or how bad the Packers were, Green Bay would tear into my beloveds and usually come out on top.

This has been especially true in the Favre era although Lovie had a 4 game win streak going against them until the New Years eve debacle last year when Rex Grossman admitted he wasn’t mentally ready for the game and Green Bay ran up almost 500 yards in offense.

But this is a different Packers team and a different Brett Favre. The future Hall of Famer seems as if he is trying to will the Packers to success all on his own. His weapons on offense are few but he makes the most of them. Not much of a running game but who needs a rusher when you have a gunslinger like Brett? Last week, Favre became the all time leaders in TD throws. He celebrated by throwing another.

My Beloveds have no offense. The replacement of Wonder Dog with Greasy Kid Stuff was dictacted not by reality but by the fans and media. Sure enough, GKS proved he is a disaster by throwing two interceptions on the goal line, missing wide open receivers, and standing around like a bufoon in the backfield. He isn’t rusty. He’s a back up quarterback – an emergency, a guy who can give the first team QB a break every once and a while. What he is not is a QB capable of bringing victory. Almost any wins the Bears get from here on out will come as a result of their defense and special teams outscoring the opponent. If the offense can score more than 10 points a game, I will be shocked.

With no offense, the Bears defense will be on the field most of the game, leading to 4th quarter meltdowns as we have seen the last 2 weeks. Couple that with 8 defensive starters on the injury list and you have a predictable disaster waiting to happen tonight. Brett Favre will pass left. He will pass right. He will pass down the middle. He will go long, short, and everything in between. By the time it’s mercifully over, Favre and the Packers will have routed my Beloveds, sending them careening toward a mediocre season and a failure to make the playoffs.

Prediction: Packers 37 Bears 10.

UPDATE: DESERVE’S GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH IT

No, my Beloveds did not deserve to win this game. An inexplicable Green Bay decision to get conservative in the second half allowed the Bears to capitalize on a few breaks and then drive for the winning TD thanks to a breakdown in the secondary.

But a win is a win and boy did we need it. The Bears still don’t have much of an offense and they keep suffering injuries on defense so it is still doubtful in my mind, what with their tough non conference schedule, that they can advance to the playoffs. But they showed that they have no quit in them which promises exciting games if not a successful season.
