The Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) travel to Chicago this Sunday to do battle with The Bears (0-1). Kickoff is 4:15pm EST (CBS). This is the first time the Steelers have graced their presence @ Soldier Field since 1995. All guns will be ablaze on both sides of the turf.
Bears Offense - Lead by Jay Cutler (QB). Cutler was a Probowler & member of the Broncos last season. Will be making his Chicago debut this weekend. Takes chances with the rock (had 4 picks last week vs the Packers). Tends to throw the ball flat-footed & eye-balls his WR's. Also plays with a major chip on his shoulder.
Bears WR's - none worth mentioning in particular. Are a young core. Try to create matchups, but lack of experience is their downfall. Not running the proper routes the majority of the plays.
RB's - Forte - Class - 2nd year in the NFL. Accredited for 1/3rd of all the Bears plays last season. Is dynamic, explosive & runs downhill. Raw talent @ its finest.
TE's - Olson - Up & coming star. Smart & efficient. May be the lead TE this week as Desmond is possibly injured.
Hester - Phenom of a kickoff returner. Occasional WR when the Bears pass attack goes down the crapper. Can bring the heat. Will be a major test for the Steelers special teams.
Bears D - Typically one of the best in the NFL. Play quick & physical. Yet seem not to be playing up to standard so far this season. Are minus one Brian Urlacher (LB & Defensive Captain). This is a huge blow to their squad. Urlacher has been replaced by Briggs as the new defensive cub scout leader. Keep your eyes on this hulk of a player. He's the Man!
Final Thoughts - The Bears will take the field running on all cylinders. Cutlers' debut will charge Soldier Field. His lack of timing with the WR core will be detrimental. Steel D will apply constant pressure right up the middle of the line of scrimmage. Urlacher's injury is to much for the Bears D to fathomn. The Men of Steel will be the ones to do the "Super Bowl Shuffle" this weekend!!!!!
STEEL V !!!!!
