I fully expect the Bears to continue making strides and building confidence as a team this week, but Lovie will have a few wrinkles for them.

Bears 31 – Buccaneers 14

Elijah (3-5)

The Bears are obviously not great, but they are better than the Buccaneers. I see a game that should not be as close as it will be. McCown should do well against the Bears terrible defense, but I think Cutler will play better. Fun fact: The Bears are 5-2 in their 1940s throwbacks.

Bucs 31 – Bears 34

John Vasser (0-1)

This game will be decided by special teams.  Currently TB is ranked 31, Bears 32.  Watch out for the big return, fumble, block or any other follies that may occur.

Bears 24 –  Bucs 10

The Bears will not make this look as easy as the final score will read, yet it will give the Bears a 2 game winning streak heading to Turkey Day in Detroit.  The Bears continue their long crawl to respectability with a Victory at Soldier Field on Sunday.

Robert Napier (4-6)

Lovie coming to Chicago. Both he and Marc Trestman are not where they want to be this season. I think Lovie has more time to develop his team before getting fired. I will pick the Bears to win on my birthday, because I want them to, and they have finally won a game at home. I expect cheers for Lovie from the crowd. There isn’t a Chicago Bears fan out there that hasn’t questioned his being fired in favor of Trestman, considering our poor record ever since.
