Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh my! 

Blog Photo - Monday Night Football Week 7 Live ThreadNow that we got the obligatory tired joke out of the way...

With a win, the Bears will go to 5-1 (really?), and the disappointing Lions are just trying to get to .500. The records may be deceiving when discussing the caliber of these two teams. The Bears have played a few really bad teams, and the Lions have lost to some pretty good ones. 

Let's be honest - neither of these quarterbacks are great. They each show flashes of greatness at times, and they each have had their fair share of very ugly games. If either of them could play with any consistency, this division could be very exciting. Or extremely boring.

If neither of these QBs implodes, this could actually prove to be a great game. I don't see that happening, though. Do you?

The Bears automatically get the edge, being at home. And I'm not quite sure Stafford can handle that Chicago defense. However, I've said it before and I'll say it again - I think Jay Cutler is due for another meltdown. I also think that the Lions are due to show up and play to their potential for once this season. 

My take: Lions by 3.

Who wins the game tonight? Q it up here for what will either be a really ugly game, or a really good game...because with these two, there is no in-between!

How that game managed to be so close, I'll never understand.

LOL @ Stafford.

p.s. I don't like this refs' voice.

I like making bold predictions when they don't involve my team cheeky
