Reporters pick 'em: Bears-Packers
7:32 PM CDT, October 5, 2007
It's hard to see the banged-up Bears breaking all that feel-good momentum the Packers have going. Big plays are the Bears' best hope, but who will make them? Offensively, they haven't been making the basic plays. And Devin Hester has to catch the ball before he can score. The defense is hurtin', so Brett Favre and Donald Driver will be hard to stop.

Look who's back. It's good ol' boy Brett the Quarterback Guy. Great to see Brett Favre pass on almost every down. Not so great to see Brian Griese do it. Rookie tight end Greg Olsen, it's time for your first TD catch. You could tie Moose Muhammad and John St. Clair for the team's lead. Cheeseheads, please ... we need this one more than you do.

The Bears' defense will sack Brett Favre five times, stop Green Bay running backs so cold Packers fans start missing Samkon Gado and play well enough to win. Won't matter. The offense will sputter against a Packers "D" that's better than Detroit's. It takes a deep passing game to beat this secondary and the Bears just haven't shown they have one.

Were the last two weeks the beginning of a free fall? Sunday will go a long way toward answering that question for the Bears, who still give us no reason to think their offense is capable of winning games. But it's the defense, injuries or not, that will have to save the season.

You know Brett Favre's getting old when he's doing ads for Wrangler, but the future Hall of Famer has found the fountain of youth. Favre will pick apart a banged-up Bears secondary.

It would take a Lambeau Leap of faith to believe the Bears can overcome enough of their deficiencies to outwit an energized Packers team playing at home. The Bears can only hope that Brett Favre becomes reckless in his enthusiasm and turns the ball over a few times.

Don't ask me why. I have no idea. Maybe it's a sympathy vote. They have to win again some day, right? How about Sunday night against the Packers in Green Bay? If that challenge can't get the Bears pumped up, things are worse than we thought.
BEARS 17, PACKERS 14
One team is jumping around, the other is just jumpy, and Bears have simply not found ways to win when things start to unravel. Expect the Bears to start fast in a desperation game, but Green Bay and Favre are just feelin' it and Favre is hard to beat when he has the mojo rocking.
PACKERS 24, BEARS 10
The Bears are too banged up to hang with the Pack at Lambeau. It isn't that difficult to imagine Brett Favre putting up big numbers.
