Going all the way

Ski over at Best Buc Blog has a post with reasons the Bears will make the Super Bowl.

#1. The defense, though not as good as '85, but very good front seven, plus they have guys in the secondary who can force turnovers and make plays. Random note, if anyone on that defense was going to beat the Bucs I'm glad it was Alex Brown. At Florida he was stud and would average something like four sacks against crappy teams. Then he went up against good teams (i.e. Tennessee) and and got shut down. Needless to say, I'm surprised he's made any kind of an impact at the professional level.

#2. Two headed monster at runningback. How much do you think Arizona wishes it had Thomas Jones or Michael Pittman back? One has a Super Bowl ring and the other plays on a team headed for the Super Bowl.

Little known fact, the year Ron Dayne broke the collegiate rushing record Thomas Jones led college football in rushing. Plus they have a top five pick and potential future stud in Cedric Benson.

#3. No one wants to play the Bears in Chicago in January. Windchills of negative 20? A foot of snow on the field? How does that NOT favor a team that plays shut down defense and runs the ball well?
