    I think the Bears will lose .My reason .A must win for us .If we lose our seasons over .If we win our season may still be over .Then the following week the hot Vikings .Now we may lose that one .I like the Bears and have liked them for years but not this week .

    As a lifelong Bears fan my heart says the Bears will win....but my head tells me this is probably where the winning streak ends and Pittsburg wins...but it should be a good game.

    As someone who doesn't really care one way or the other, I can objectively look at it and say that if both teams are on their best gaem, the Steelers will win. However, if the Steelers have any lapses, the Bears will take advantage of the situation.

    The thing that scares me is that Big Ben does make too many mistakes. His game is not flashy and risky. If the Bears can pressure him the way they did Favre they have a chance. I think it will take more than 13 points to win though. What do you think?

    I think the Steelers will win for a couple of reasons. #1, they're desperate. All things being equal, the desperate team usually wins in the NFL. These teams are pretty evenly matched. But, I think the Steelers offense can wear the Bears down and I think the Steelers defense can shut the Bears out.

    #2, the Bears offense is truly pathetic. At least it was pathetic last week against a decent Packers defense, going 0-10 on 3rd down, which is pretty inexcusable for an NFL QB. I'm not necessarily calling for Rex Grossman, but Orton simply has to play better.

    This has the look of a low scoring game.

    Hey, is it too late to say STEELERS?

    I was stationed in Germany ('81-84) and "Monday Night Football" on Armed Forces Network was a rebroadcast of a Sunday game. Monday was also the day new guys came to the unit. So some of the new guys would get talked into betting on the outcome of the Monday night game. They were usually in transit while we were reading Stars and Stripes getting the score of a game already played.

    So that is where the phrase, "sure thing" came from?

    The Steelers have the Vikes, Browns and Liedowns left. They'll run the table, finish 11-5, and make the playoffs as a Wild Card.
