The eagles are favored by 2 td's against the bears, same as the steelers vs packers, and less than the patriots vs miami.
I could easily see chicago losing by 20-30pts. But u never know...
I've been watching the red zone channel lately, so havent seen a lot of bears offense. I think they were doing the old run on 1st, run on 2nd, pass on 3rd and long a lot, and predictably punting a lot, but now that trubisky's passing attempts are up, might be interesting to just watch the bears, see how they do. Unless the game gets out of hand quickly, in which case back to the RZ i go...
I use both pronunciations, Pop, for no reason except they both sound correct to me. Maybe the -CAN is more popular in the south...
It's kind of amazing that the dallas offense looks so bad without Zeke. Then again, tyron smith has been injured, and they lost another off lineman, zach martin, last game, so it's not just zeke.
Still, makes you wonder if running backs are coming back into vogue in a passing league. The cowboys look like losers without zeke, fournette has helped the jags become winners. Saquon barkley of penn state looks like another generational talent at RB, maybe the niners should reach for him with their first pick, assuming garappolo is their qb of the future (with beathard as a good backup).
I think a lot of fans (mostly eagles, giants, redskins fans probably) think dak has been exposed now without a league best off line and running attack. That he's average at best, terrible at worst.
And no doubt he has been terrible the last 3 games, hasnt thrown a td, bunch of picks, one returned for a td.
Still, he's had way more good games than bad games in his career, and even hall of fame qb's look average when theyre not getting any blocking or their receivers arent making plays. His receivers, even dez, arent running past anyone.
He'll definitely play better than he has been, but it is worrisome that, once the offense had to rely solely on him making plays, it's been pretty bad.
