08:02 AM ET 12.27 | While Chicago's Henry Melton says he expects a "dirty" Lions team this coming Sunday, Bears safety Major Wright had some strong words, too. [Wright] thinks he and the Bears defense have figured out Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. "You put a little pressure on him, you close the pocket on him, and he hesitates," Wright said Wednesday. "He doesn't make that perfect throw." ... Stafford was 28 of 46 for 263 yards, a touchdown and an interception in that game, and the Bears sacked him three times. The Lions, due largely to four turnovers, didn't score until there were 30 seconds left in regulation. Wright said Stafford "kind of folds" under pressure, and the numbers support his argument.

The Bears are playing for their playoff lives, and these geniuses are passing out bulletin board material for their opponents. They must've already booked vacations in January.

Exactly....not the best strategy.

Ugh... I'm just about ready for this season to end.

Stafford folds under pressure. Ja hey der, sounds like a case of KenoshaMarkitis.

Mr. Wright... You were 7-1.


I recommend shutting your damn mouth.

So he is saying he would take Cutler over Stafford???

Maybe not this year but certainly last year, he brought the Lions back from behind game after game, a bad year can make a QB hesitant I'm sure. But after losing to the Cards I wouldn't bet on them.

What the heck is this clown talking about? His QB has more folds than a circus tent being packed away!

As The Best Policy said, "pot, meet kettle". But the pot ain't completely wrong.

I was thinking more folds than Rosie O'Donnell after liposuction but the circus tent analogy works too.

Cutler is going to be kicked in the balls by a man called Suh.

And it will be just as "inadvertent" as the last time.

So are the Bears. They hate cancelling their Caribbean vacations on such short notice.

Exactly. If only they'd show this much fight on the gridiron, they wouldn't be in this predicament.

Is it too late for a restraining order to be filed? The Lions have no post-season hopes... Suh probably figures he has nothing to lose.

I agree with Melton... I'm expecting a dirty Lions team as well.
