When you match up a 4-5 team with a 5-4 team it should come as no surprise that the game is essentially a pick’em. The Hawks have a clear advantage playing at home, but until I see it with my own eyes, I can’t believe the Bears defense has fallen that far, and their defense from last year is definitely better than our offense during this one.

I’d like to be able to say I pick the Hawks in the game today, but it’s been a while since they beat a team anywhere close to their equal. I think the Bears will be motivated to use this game a launching pad back into the race (which it won’t be even if they win), and I’m not sure the Hawks can beat a mediocre team right now.

I’ll be watching the game on tape delay due to attending a funeral (the only valid excuse for giving up a ticket), but will share some more thoughts after I’m done.

Have a great Thanksgiving to all the US-based readers.
