In looking up "Go Bears" in Google just to see what kinds of fan art was there, and to get an idea of what Bears fans were thinking, I ran across this:
We're constantly being overlooked. First by Saints fans, and now by Bears fans.
Let's hope it extends to the Bears team itself.
The game in Chicago is still not sold out. On stubhub.com, as of this writing, you can still buy hundreds of seats ranging from $69-$200. These seats would not have even been available at Qwest Field. Like New Orleans fans not coming to Seattle, Chicago fans aren't even buying for their own stadium. Does this mean they don't think the game is worth watching? Do they not have a lot of confidence in their own team? Is it going to be too cold at the game for even Chicago fans to handle?
Most importantly: if they don't sell out Soldier Field, is the game blacked out in the home market? That would be very interesting if that was the case. Every Bears fan that doesn't buy a ticket is possibly losing it to one of the 12th. I hope we have a lot of fans there, because that would really make things interesting.
Cutler is making his first playoff start. He could very well come out flat.
The Seahawks running game is finally going.
The Seahawks defense is coming around.
If Hasselbeck goes to the Fountain of Youth again this week, I think we have an excellent chance for victory.
What do you guys think?
