I absolutely love how people point to weak schedules and compare results against similar opponents. All that does is prove you get all of your thoughts from a*shats like Sean Salisbury.
Strength of schedule can only be determined AFTER the season is over. And as far as playing similar opponents go, it is a better measurement stick, but still not a good one. The term any given sunday comes to mind.
Fact of the matter is that we haven't played each other yet, and NO other measurement is correct except for actual game results. I am sure you believe your team can win this game, just as I believe mine can.
And for the phinfags, you will be equally as famous as the 85 dolphins. Think about that for just one minute........or have one of your smart friends do it for you.
For clarity purposes, poetry is not a regular part of our messageboard, at least not in the truest sense. Limericks, however, have become a weekly tradition there. If I may, here is a link to this weeks limerick thread on our site. http://www.dabearz.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14176&highlight=week
The Jets have done a great job of playing as a team. Despite personnel not ideally suited to their new defensive scheme, they have been stout the last few weeks.
The Bears are not without faults. Grossman can be rattled. But the real reason for that is the inconsistent play of our O line. You are right, we will need the run to set up the pass. And if our O line shows up, we can do that against your defense. If not, well, trouble.
Bears fans are realistic, and know we play to the level of our competition. I believe the Jets are a better team than the Dolphins one that beat us, and better than the AZ team that scared us. However, I believe the culprit in both of those games was overconfidence. I don't see that same overconfidence repeating itself just yet. Since the Jets are a better team, we should play better than in those games.
