Week 15: Bears vs. Browns 5 Questions with Dawg Pound Daily

The Bears did it. They proved me wrong and destroyed the Cowboys on Monday night. I am a happy fan this week. Now the Bears have to keep the pedal to the metal and beat the remaining teams on their schedule to have any chance of winning the division. It’s not going to be easy, but I do think the Bears have a chance again, unlike two weeks ago when I thought all was lost. Remember, it was 4th and 11. Stupid defense. If we could only go back one year and combine last years defense with this years offense. The Bears would be unstoppable. But that is beauty of the NFL.

For this weeks edition of 5 questions, I contacted Mike Ristano from Dawg Pound Daily and asked him a number of questions about the Browns match up against the Bears.

Do you think the Browns will be able to rebound after last week’s disappointing loss?

Honestly, I think in their minds that game was taken away from them on that phantom pass interference call at the end of the game which gave the Patriots the ball on the half yard line. I believe they may come out with a chip on their shoulder, with something to prove, especially from the defensive side.

Which quarterback do you think the Browns would rather face, JoshMcCown or Jay Cutler?

I’m not really sure it matters to them that much to be honest. With Joe Haden locking down receivers on one side and the other side being manned by a very much improved Buster Skrine, it hasn’t been easy passing on the Browns this year. Add in strong safety T.J. Ward lurking around the secondary and you have a confident bunch. Either way the Bears were going to decide to go, I believe the Browns would be ready for either quarterback.
