Boys and Girls, I have to say--it felt particularly nice to get home from work today and slide into the good ole orange #6 jersey.
It's felt like an eternity since the Bears defeated the Panthers last Sunday, and couple that with the...interesting...conversations we've had with a segment of the Lions fans this week, and, well, I couldn't be more amped up for this game if you told me that I'd be having dinner with ScarJo afterwards.
This Lions team is a far better version that what we're used to seeing--but the Bears should be able to go toe-to-toe and break their spirits. First quarter thread is up at 8et/7ct, but go past the jump for some tidbits, and some general rowdy behavior.
"Ndamukong Suh is cheap," Thayer said Monday on "The Mully and Hanley Show" on WSCR-AM 670. "He's one of the best defensive linemen in the league, but he hits late, after the whistle, with the intentions of hurting people."
Early Field Reports from Kevin Seifert--noted Bears fan
Lions are first NFL team to rally from 20+ point deficits in 2 straight wins. Under Lovie Smith, Bears are 44-8 when leading at halftime.
CBS Sports previews the game:
Hitman has been pimping the holy hell out of this:
Nick Fairley has family in town for the game -- Let's hope the Bears make them sad.
The Lions can smell blood -- the band-aids need to hold.
And here's some more from Seifert, who I think is actually giving the Lions footrubs after the game.
IT'S GOING DOWN
