Still like the bears in this one as long as cutler's playing, and I'm not a jay cutler fan. The Seahawks on the road is all I need to feel safe with this one.

I agree. I thought the Vikings would play the Bears tougher last week and got hurt fading the Bears. The Bears were smart and exposed the Vikings with a lot of 3 step drops and short passes. This was a smart plan to keep Cutler safe, but I think the Seahawks match up much better against this team. They have the corners to man up and can bring the blitz against a very shakey offensive line that will be without the services of right guard Lance Louis, who was absolutely leveled by Jared Allen last week.   

I worry about the Seahawks being able to move the ball against this defense. My hope is that the Bears will be a step slower on the defensive side of the ball. Lance Briggs will definitely not be a 100% as he was seen walking around in a boot after last week's game. And Tillman, one of the best corners in the league, is still listed as questionable with an ankle injury. I don't think Seattle will "light up the scoreboard" at Soldier Field this Sunday, but I think they have the tools in play a very competitive game. Just keep in mind who the Bears have faced the past few weeks: the 49ers led by Frank Gore, the Vikings led by AP (who surprisingly came up w a 100 yd day despite a losing effort), and now the Seahawks led by Marshawn Lynch. Seems like their defense can't catch a break and are going up against some of the best running games in the league in 3 consecutive weeks.

Having Devin Hester out doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me given he hasn't done much all season, but its still one less thing Seattle doesn't have to account for. And for those of you who forgot, Alshon Jeffery just had his knee scoped, so he won't be in action. It would seem the Bears just don't have the right personnel to light up the scoreboard. Obviosuly Brandon Marshall is always a threat, but the Seahawks will have the medicine for him and probably mimic the 49er gameplan from 2 weeks ago.     

The Bears only put up 3 points in last weeks second half, and I don't think that bodes well for them when they step up in class and play the Seahawks defense.

I guess what I am trying to say is I like the Seahawks to win or lose this game by a fg or so, in a low scoring game.

Seattle  17

Chicago 13

good luck

All this means is this is a shitty behind game to bet on as I also believe that this game can be close.  It will defend on the Bears defense if they will come out with the "W" or not.  If they play like they've played and scored in nearly every game then it'll cover. 

When I first saw this line I thought it was a gimme.  Not anymore after looking at the possibles, doubtables, & injured.  But I do like the revenge factor for Seattle coming into Chicago and laying a beat down on the Bears.  Maybe they return the favor tomorrow.  

Either way I'll stay away from this one.  Better games to be had.

Liking the Bears herea  lot, Line has dropped to 3 here. A rookie Qb in a tough spot against a very good def. I think SEA offense is very limited and the Bears offense will do just enough.

Bears @ home should & will  get the job done, Look for a tight game ealry but Bears pull ahead in the second half to win by 10+.

The Seahawks are playing their second of back to back road games. They'll also be without both of their starting corner backs and they're a much different team on the road sporting a 1-5 record this season. The only thing that has me slightly concerned is that it looks like the bears will be heavily bet by the public this week and I tend to stay away from those situations.

I'll fade the Seachickens on the road, vegas doesn't give gifts but -3 sure seems like one.

With that being said, if bad Cutler shows Seattle more than covers!

Seattle +3.5. Last two seasons the Seahawks came to Chicago in the regular season and won outright as underdogs. Chicago playoffs faith will be decided next two weeks when they face their big divisional rivals Minnesota and Green Bay. Major lookahead situation for the Bears.

Look for Cutler to be under pressure in this one all day.....Bears get the win but can't cover a tease against the Chickens.  Give me the Jets in a strong tease on the other side.

-7 pointer-
Jets +1
Chickens +10.5

GL to all!!!

The key to this game will be Chicago's ability (or lack thereof) to protect their QB.  To view the Bear O-line as undermanned and vulnerable today is to be too generous. The unit has allowed 35 sacks TY, third-most of any team in the league, and I don't see many easy ways to advance the football this afternoon.

The Week 2 defeat at Green Bay and Week 10 undressing at San Francisco demonstrated just how a voracious pass rush can decimate Cutler and the Bears' game plan.  

Seattle's "D" (29 sacks) gotta be chomping at the proverbial bit. 

Steady Seahawk QB Wilson (9 TDP 1 INT L5G) not making many mistakes and HC Carroll 11-1 ATS L12 as dog.

Seattle +3

Seattle "Reverse Win" Power Play!

True, Seattle 1-5 on the road straight up.  But Seattle 5-2 vs. point spread last 7 games!  Chicago OL injuries big trouble against Seattle's pass-rush attack now with 29 sacks!

Will look for rookie QB Russell Wilson with 9 TDP his last five games to put up points, reverse Seattle as an underdog and win this one outright!  And Pete Carroll 11-1 last 12 as underdog!

Seattle plus 3 over Chicago!
