Everyone has been pretty excited about the Bears coming off back to back wins before the bye week, but Monday could be a challenging night. While we’re excited about the progress the Bears’ offensive line has made, they’ve made it at home against an awful Vikings team and a “road” win in London against an equally befuddling Tampa Bay Bucs team. Now set the orange and blue Kook Aide down and see what we’re talking about after the jump.
On Monday night, the Bears will face the Eagles in the hostile environment of Lincoln Financial Field. The last time the Bears faced a tough crowd, the Bears went false-start crazy en route to getting torched by the Lions. Jay Cutler is a little concerned about communication with his offensive teammates:
“There are going to be some problems, some glitches like in any game. But hopefully we’re consistent throughout the game in what we’re trying to do.”
We can talk about silent counts and other tricks to try to minimize the effect of the crowd, but the best thing the Bears could do woud be to score early in this critical conference game which could very well have big tie-breaker implicaitons.
These are people that not only booed Santa Clause, but booed during an anti-cancer video clip at a Flyers game.
