NFL  > Chicago Bears  > Week 5 Saints come to town, Can this game be a Signature game IF the Bears win?
October 2, 2013, 12:35 PM
Isn't that the question? Can the Bears win? Or is will they more accurate? I think the Bears can win, but they have a lot of work to do in just one week.

The Bears MUST not turn the ball over or make penalties that stop drives. They MUST take the ball away from the explosive Saints and limit them to field goals when possible. They MUST keep control of the ball, the clock thus keeping Drew Brees off the field as much as possible and score A LOT of points! REALLY the Bears score A LOT of points???!!! Yes they MUST to beat the Saints!

No doubt about it the Saints are one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL. They can take a game over very easily almost INSTANTLY. Drew Brees to ME is the best QB in the NFL! His short passing game is superb and almost impossible to stop. What you must do is take advantage of when he throws it medium to long range. This is our ONLY chance to beat the man. Our defense MUST play bend and don't break, but steal the ball at every opportunity.

If the Bears don't get some plays from the special teams in this game it could be disastrous.

This is a huge game for the Bears. It could be a signature game that everyone points to that made the Bears be what they become this season. Worse, it could be the game that shows that the Bears have a long ways to go to be an elite team in the NFL. GO BEARS!!!

Which Saints team will you get? The one that struggled against a terrible Tampa team at Tampa or the team that put away Miami pretty easily in the dome? My 'kiss of death' pick is the Bears. Sorry!! lol

Nov 4, MNF at Green Bay. That would be a signature win.

BF,

Best of luck,and yer Bears have the talent too keep them in check,and just give Jay som time too hit his targets,and ya got the win.

You make it sound so easy, EZ. LOL I think it will be anything but easy, but the Bears have the capabilities and the players and most importantly the LEADERS!!! It just depends on how they ALL work together.

I still say that Drew Brees is the best QB in the NFL. But I don't consider the Saints to be the best team in the NFL. This is a big test. One that will have to be the entire team together to pull off a victory. GO BEARS!!!

May not mean much, but Brees is 0-4 in his career playing in Chicago.

I picked the Saints to win as they are similar to the Broncos and Pats, just can score when they need too. If this game was going to be in bad weather (Chicago weather like in December) I would've went Chicago but the weather this Sunday in Chicago wont even really give the Bears a HFA as it looks like regular fall weather.

I'm interested to see how the Bears respond to last week's loss, the Saints are one of the better teams in the NFC, in fact you could say this game features 2 of the best 3 teams in the NFC. This team is talented but I question Cutler's mental resiliency, physically he is one of the toughest players in the NFL and other players will say that. Last week they lost a division game against the Lions, it's early on in the year however so I don't want to make this Saints/Bears game anything it's not. On the flip-side, I'm curious to see how the Saints play on the road, the Saints and Seahawks more than all the other NFC contenders need to get HFA throughout the playoffs, however this year if their defense is much better throughout all 16 games then you could surmise that the Saints will be better on the road than recent years because "defense travels". Also if there is inclement weather, I'm curious to see how the Saints play in that, because the Super Bowl is in New York which figures to be at the least, cold weather, so yeah, to recap I"m looking for how the Bears and Cutler responds to the loss and how the Saints fare on the road, this game along with NE/CIN and HOU/SF are the most intriguing this week.

Oh to the contrary. I 'assumed' also that a dome team like the Saints does not do well on the road, as that is the usual rule of thumb, so out of curiosity I did a little research to find the following:

The Saints actually have the best regular-season road record in the NFL since 2009 (22-11) and the second-best road record since 2006 (34-23).

There you have it.

Really EZ a majic 8 ball? Well it will probably be better than I am sometimes. LOL GO BEARS!

October 4, 2013  11:41 PM ET

Turnovers and pressure on the QB's, plus ball control are the keys as I see it.

With Rex Ryan as Defensive Co-ordinater the Saint's defense will be improving every week. Lets just hope that Trestman and Cutler can come up with and EXECUTE a ball control offense that can keep the Saints Offense off the field, and score points. GO BEARS!!!

BF,

The Bears have weapons the Sainst won't be ready for.

I thin the Bears will bat down a couple of balls with brees,and yer D will give Jay and Company,too take advantage of thier mistakes.

I see yer RB breaking up the middle,and keeping the Saint's Defense guessing,and then?

Jay hit's them hard and fast.

Hand offs and short passes keep NO's D on the field,till they're gassed out,and Forte runs out the clock and put's that nail in the coffin for Brees and Co.
