Sorry my man, I'm going to say

Panthers 23

Bears 10

:D
I knew I didn't like you for some reason. :boxing: I forgot, where are your niners right now, oh yeah preparing for the draft.

 
10-10 game in the 4th...Rex goes down.Orton comes in and leads Da Bears to a game winning field goal!13-10Bears

 
The Bears won't get as many sacks as last time but their offense will be better.Bears. 16-10

 
I would love for those picking NE because of Brady vs. Plummer to identify themselves in this thread and give their thoughts on Delhomme vs. Grossman. This game is very hard for me to pick. The Bears defense is the best in the league and I have said for two months that they have been NFC title game-bound. Carolina looked awfully good against the Giants, though, and always seem to play better on the road (7-2 this season vs. 4-4 at home). Still, they are kind of schizo team as you never know when they are going to show up with their 'A' game or with their 'C' team. I am not confident in this pick, but I will say 13-10 Panthers.

I think that's just a testament to how close everyone thinks this game will be. It's an awfully tough game to pick. Both teams are going to roll coverage to the star reciever, so it's going to come down to the Justin Gage's and Bernard Berrian's of the world rising to the challenge. I think they do.Bears 20 - Panthers 10

Rex goes down.

Orton comes in and leads Da Bears to a game winning field goal!

13-10

Bears
:goodposting: This is one of the hardest games for me to pick -I think it is for everyone.

Nevertheless, I'm going with Chicago 17, Carolina 14.

 
I really don't think it is a hard game to pick at all.Carolina has a better passing game.Chicago has a QB starting his first playoff game.Both teams can run and stop the run. Call that a wash.Carolina should be the 3 point favorite, not the other way around.I'm not saying it won't be close, but Carolina would win this matchup 6 out of 10 times.Granted Carolina lost 13-3 to Chicago at Soldier field, but that was Week 11 (Nov 20). Eight weeks ago. I did not see that game, but I don't believe that Carolina will be that ineffective at scoring points, keep a red-hot Steve Smith out of the end zone, or give up nearly as many sacks in that game (8).Carolina's defense seems to be peaking right now as well, especially vs. the run, shutting Tiki down after throttling Atlanta.I don't see who scores points for Chicago.

The Bears are 7-1 at home, and with the execption of the only loss, an Orton 5 int Cincy game, no opponent has scored more than 9 points in soilder field this year.September 18 vs.Lions W 38 - 6

September 25 vs.Bengals L 7 - 24

October 16 vs.Vikings W 28 - 3

October 23 vs.Ravens W 10 - 6

November 13 vs.49ers W 17 - 9

November 20 vs.Panthers W 13 - 3

December 4 vs.Packers W 19 - 7

December 18 vs.Falcons W 16 - 3

I don't see who scores points for Chicago.
The Defense of course! :D With two strong defenses, odds are there will not be alot of points scored by either offense.

Panthers...they have a far better offense in both running and receiving. Chicago might have the slightly better defense statistically, but Carolina has a decent defense as well...and definitely more than enough to handle Chicago's anemic offense. Chicago's defense will give Carolina some fits...but Carolina's offense is strong enough to find ways to win this game whereas Chicago's offense will flounder.

Recieving = edge panthersRushing = edge Bears

The Bears have the 5th ranked rushing offense in the NFC and *th in the league, while the panthers are ranked 10th in the NFC and 19th in the league, so I can't see how you would say that they have the edge rushing. Both Thomas and Foster have a 4.3 ypc avg.

Foster has really had about a 3.5 or so avg untill tha last two weeks where he has gone off on atlanta and the giants. Jones's yards have come , despite the fact, defenses that knew the Bears were going to run and they had 8-9 guys in the box. I am by no means saying Chicago has a great overall offense, or even a good one, but their running game is good, very good. The Bears also have great depth at RB, with Peterson and now that he is back, Benson, so if things don't work out with Jones for some reason, we have two solid alternatives.

Carolina = 22nd I'm excited. :excited:

 
Carolina = #8 scoring offense. Carolina doesn't need yards to score.
Against the Bears they will.The fact is, the Bears offense has been bad this year, so they play a field position game.

They will try to keep the panthers deep in their own territory and make them march the length of the field to score. That is what they have done to almost every team this year, and that will be what they try again.

 
no opponent has scored more than 9 points in soilder field this year.
[namath]I guarantee that the Panthers will score more than 9 points.

:lmao: Not that I am agreeing or disagreeing with you, but I just read that sentence in the voice of the person in your avatar... Richard Simmons is not very convincing however. :lmao:

Does it matter who advances... only to go to Seattle and lose? :)

Carolina 20

Chicago 17
You are assuming next week's game will be played in Seattle. I'm not so sure.

It'll be settled this weekend...you'll see who has the better running game.

If you had to play the Bears twice this year, you'd rank 27th, 25th, 24th, 32nd, 22nd, 17th, or 11th in total offense too. ;)

BEARSH, my friend.

 
Bears - 16Panthers - 13The Bears will host the Redskins for the NFC Championship game next week. Book it, Dan-o.

What's the verdict? Even with the Bears All-World defense...Carolina still outrushed them.
