Gas Money Bob's Week 8 Bears Preview

All-Time Head to Head Record:

The Bears have dominated the Jets going 8-3 overall. We carry a 4 game winning streak against them and should make it 5 after today. In 1985 the Bears beat NY 19-6.

Game Time Weather Report:

53 Degrees

Precipitation 10%

Humidity 66%

Wind 8 mph

It feels like we’re never going to get Bear Weather this season. Either way I love our chances in any weather versus the Jets.

Gambler’s Corner:

Bears -9.5

Over/Under 42.5

This is a pretty big spread but this team is ready to prove the last two weeks were flukes. Bears cover but I would bet the under today. I read the line moved from 7.5-9.5 overnight so the smart betters are all over the Bears.

Fantasy Advice:

Start ‘em: Trubisky, Cohen, Howard, Gabriel, Robinson (if he plays), White, Miller, Burton, Parkey, Bears D/ST

This should be a great fantasy week for Bears players. Pick up and start every Bear you can today. Mitch walking into the stadium dressed in Ditka attire assures a top 3 QB performance.

Sit ‘em: Darnold, Crowell, Kearse, Roberts, Matthews, Herndon, Myers, and NYJ D/ST

Looking up the players on this team you just have to laugh. The Jets were bad before all of these injuries now they are absolutely brutal.


Bears: Protect the ball a little better and get a couple of throws down and the O would have put up 40+ against the Pats last week. Mitch is on the verge of becoming one of the best QBs in the NFL.  Mitch shoul throw for a couple of scores and Howard should get another one this week. Cody Parkey will do the rest.

Jets: There’s not much to say here. They run the ball ok but the passing game is garbage. They have backups at WR so I don’t expect a whole lot in the air. They have a good kick return game so Parkey needs to kick it out of the endzone and no returnable punts (if we even punt at all).

Advantage: Bears


Bears: Two weeks in a row we have been embarassed on D. This has to stop today. If Vic can’t get a dominant performance out of his unit today then Fangio should just pack his bags. I don’t think this will be the case but imagine bringing in someone like Mike Singletary to run the D. We would be unstoppable.

Just got word that Mack is inactive. Next man up. Not worried.

Jets: They’re a decent defense but nothing that would put fear into you. Nagy will be confusing them all day long so I expect us to put up a lot of yards and quite a few points. They tend to get off the field on 3rd downs in the red zone so Parkey should have a big day.

Advantage: Bears

The Fans:

Bears: If you are going to the game today you need to get loud. Get really drunk in the South Lot and come into Soldiers Field screaming. This team needs us more than ever to prevent a 3 game losing streak. It starts with us.


Jets: Sad sad fans. Imagine being a Jets and Mets fan. Brutal.


Advantage: Bears Fans

Fun Fact: Joe Namath loves his booze. Never Forget.

Game Predicition:

Bears 30

Jets 10

Coming Up Next Week: Bears travel to Buffalo where we’ll be breaking bones like the Bills mafia breaks tables.

Bear Down!
