Yeah, I got nothing for the last two encounters with the Seahawks. Brandon Marshall at least brought it into overtime, but the Bears defense had nothing to stop Russell Wilson.
I am curious to see if the Bears revamped defensive line can get some pressure on Wilson on Friday. Since the game is starting at 9pm central time, we are already prepared for a long night. Like I have been saying all preseason, as long as both teams walk away with no injuries, everybody wins. It is going to be a great litmus test for the Bears to play against the Super Bowl champions, but I take absolutely nothing away from preseason. The only two things that come out of preseason games are injuries and false hope. I’m looking forward to a great half of a game on Friday night.

"Right with ya on the 1 great half. Don’t know about Da Bears, but the Hawks have some of the most difficult decisions to make on backups that they’ve had in years. I don’t expect Wilson and Co. To play past a drive into the 3rd. And only to get a feel of coming back after halftime ready to go. At any rate should be interesting. I’m a little upset that I won’t see Marquess Wilson out there after his broken clavicle. I’m one of the few Cougs still cheering for the guy after his unceremonious exit at WSU. Your thoughts on him?"
