Are you ready for some football? The Bears are coming into the Lions Den to be devoured. This Lions team is young, talented and fearless. I'm anticipating a great game!

I am too slim... I think we are gong to see more big numbers offensively...I think the Bears pull this one off in a barn burner. I just hope the penalties and turn overs don't bite the Bears. If Detroit can cause a couple turn overs I think they take this game. If the Bears get emotional that could cause some personal fouls..they will need to watch the emotion level as the Lions are gonna bring it defensively.I also look to see Hester try and make a big play on special teams as usual...if HESTER IS ALLOWED many touches, this come back to bite Dtroit in the ****. This is definately the game of the week=smash mouth.

The Bears are the defending NFC North Champs and have a lot of pride and I think we'll find out how good this young Lions team really is. Hester can create problems with his return ability and the Bears probably have the best LB unit in the NFL. I hope Stafford continues to show the poise he's demonstrated in the first four games and our defense takes care of business.

Id like to see a defensive game, no points scored on the offensive side... only because I am facing off against a guy starting CJ and Stafford in one of my leagues.. with their current numbers for the first 4, its not looking good haha.

Yes besides now knowing that the Lions are for real I gained a little respect for Cutler that O-line is abysmal yet he kept them in the game. The Lions still have a few holes ORT and a outside threat at RB but Rome wasn't built in a day if Mayhew isn't executive of the year unanimously there is a fix in

Yeah, Cutler earned some respect tonight. He was swarmed constantly but made plays when it counted. Tough loss for the Bears but by no fault of Cutler.

Why didn't they kick the FG on the 25 and go for the onside kick? They had 40 seconds and no timeouts down by two scores...
