For weeks now, I had figured the Bears would beat Seattle and lose to the Redskins. I have no idea why, that has just been my hunch.
I don't know where that leaves me after the Bears lost to Seattle at home.
One look at the second-half of the Bears schedule tells you this is a must-win game for the home team, especially after last week's debacle. I think they're going to get it done. They can move the ball against the Redskins vulnerable defense and I like the matchup of the Bears' defense vs. Washington's offense.
I said 24-13 Bears last week and was wrong, obviously. Iron Mike (28-6) and Mike (24-21), a Bear fan from Seattle, were the only readers who predicted the Seahawks would win, or so it seemed until I got to the second-to-last comment and saw that Creightom (that's not a typo) nailed the final score --- 23-20.
For that, I originally wrote that Creightom (again, no a typo) should hear nothing but knees and then palms touching the floor.
Upon further review, however, I take it all back. As several alert readers (more alert than me, anyway) pointed out, Creightom's prediction was posted after the game ended.
Therefore, his prediction is fraudulent and he deserves no credit whatsoever.
As for this week, I'm going with 24-23 Bears.
Feel free to disagree.
