5. Pernell McPhee will have an impact
Pernell McPhee likes to talk smack. He did so again this week talking about the Giants offense and how the Bears defense was going to get to Eli Manning and knock him around. The Giants didn’t take to that too kindly, and he’s given them some bulletin board material.
You could argue that a linebacker who has missed most of the season on a 2-7 football team shouldn’t be opening his mouth at all, but the one thing about McPhee, when he does it, he backs it up. McPhee has started to make his presence felt the last couple weeks and he will do so again on Sunday. He will be the Bears biggest impact defender.
