Let the Windy City be windy...

The weather channel's Sunday's hourly forcast for Sunday says the gametime temperature will be just above the freezing point (33 degF), with a stiff wind of 20-22 MPH. After sunset, which will occur at 4:45, likely towards the end of the 1st half, the temperature will drop a few degrees and the wind will die down a bit. Now, the Bears played a game in heavy winds earlier in the season, and i'm hoping that experience gives our coaches a slight advantage in play-calling on Sunday. The other advantage we can gain from the high winds is it might reduce Steve Smith's effect on the game. The 20+MPH winds should reduce Smith's touches to bubble screens and end-arounds, and i'm sure Bobby Wade would be happy to tell Smith how hard it is to catch punts in the wind.

One last advantage... if FG's fall short, we have arguably the best FG-returner in NFL history! :-O
