Bears vs Chargers: Madden 11 Prediction

It’s the preseason for Bear Goggles On too, and we’re trying out a new segment: using  a Madden 11 simulation to predict the games.  Check it out and tell us what works, what doesn’t work, what we could do to improve the segment.

The Bears kick off their preseason schedule on Saturday night when they visit the San Diego Chargers.  Thanks to Friend of the Program Sam Solarz and his Madden 11 expertise, we already know how the game is going to turn out.

It started off well with a Charles Tillman pick-6!

And it looks like Devin Aromashodu will have a nice game.  Who says the Bears can’t pass protect after seeing this 46-yard bomb?!?!

But at the end of the day, it’s just too much Phillip Rivers as the Bears fell to the Chargers 34-10.

For complete summary and stat leaders, follow the jump.

Madden 11 doesn’t think much of the Bears defense, huh?  Or their offense for that matter.  But what the heck, it’s the preseason!

Big props to new guy Sam for his help trying this out and for my guy DeCon in his advisory role.  I am hoping to convince Sam to join the BGO team as our resident Madden expert.    What do you guys thing?  Follow Sam on Twitter @samgoody14 and tell him if you can do better.

    The Bears are ranked at a super low 77 for Madden 11. But, if played right, they can perform like a 88 or 90 team.

    Julius Peppers is a BEAST in the game and Tommie Harris is constantly getting through since he’s rarely pulling double teams his way.

    Our linebacker core is solid as well.

    The only thing that screws you is the secondary. Guys are constantly open throughout the game.

    As far as offense goes, all I have to say is Devin Hester. Short slants, quick juke, 90 yard touchdown. If done right, you can pull that off almost every time. Especially if the guy you are facing against loves to hit stick, as the delay in the controls make it easy for you to dodge it. DA is also solid, as well has Knox. And Manning is a BEAST on KR. Played a game last night with my buddy, and he had Manning return it 3 times on me.

    Olsen is solid as well.

    The only problem is the running game and that’s because the Offensive line in the game is completely atrocious.
