It's Almost Time

Or, in the original Dutch: Smeufnoiw sdjnfkuw, alsdkfnlekaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

If you're reading this, you're obviously tired of watching Tony Romo decimate the hapless Browns defense. We're just a few hours away from the Bears/Colts matchup bound to haunt us for the rest of the week.

Here's 5 things to look forward to:

#1. Unusually solid (albeit brief) production from our offensive line. Our offensive line is going to look like it works at first. Do not be fooled - the line will function throughout the first half, and then become more of the turnstile we expect it to be as the game wears on. Don't ask me why I think this is going to happen - it just is.

#2. Devin Hester will be uninvolved. Hester will not be kicked to unless the game is out of reach, and he'll be used in a passing play where he is the intended target maybe once. Don't expect anything from him today, as the Colts will do what they can to prevent him from getting the ball.

#3. Mike Brown will get hurt. It's a given - it's just a matter of when. I figure go early or go home.

#4. The Bears will run all day. Orton will probably finish with 150 yards and MAYBE a TD. Everything else that we do (if anything) will be Forte and company. Who knows - maybe we'll have a running game!

#5. The crew will talk incessantly about Eli Manning whenever there's dead space in the broadcast, and about Peyton's bursa sac whenever he has an incompletion (which won't be very often, sadly). Keep an eye on Anthony Gonzalez too, while you're at it.
