I am not overlooking Chicago, and neither should you.

As a longtime Panthers fan, I overlook no one.

 

John Fox and George Seifert taught me that lesson.

this feels like the type of game we'd inexplicably drop 

There's plenty here that will tell you it wasn't inexplicable and was downright expected. But football this year is kinda wide open. It's actually fun not having a solid pulse on any team this year (including college).

The reason I'm overly confident for this game, is that normally I would be terrified that the young rookie is gonna come in and throw caution to the wind and show out against us.  Lucky there is 0% chance of John Fox allowing any QB to do that.  We know now that Clausen was trash but you'd have never been able to tell in 2010 when Fox just let him either run a boot leg and throw it under 7 yards or throw it away.  The dude tried to make Peyton Manning a game manager and handed Joe Flacco a free super bowl because of it.  Bless.

I'm not gonna lie, I've been worried about their run game with Howard and Cohen.  I think they could give us a lot of trouble.

I'm not worried about Trubisky at all.  I think our defense is going to have him rattled early...  but again, that run game is what I'm worried about.

Chicago does a lot of the little things well. I don't think too many Panthers fans are overlooking them, and I know the team isn't. Any win on the road (and at home for US lately) is hard to come by. We need to start winning the turnover battle. If we do that this game, I think we have a really good chance to win...just like we would have against the Eagles without those 2 gift scores we gave them.

As a long time NFL fan, I overlook no one.

Even the worst teams in the league are still professionals and tend to win at least a few games.

The Bears may not be great but it'd be absolutely foolish to just dismiss them as an easy win.

They just beat the Ravens in Baltimore

I don't think anyone is overlooking them

The ravens team that lost 44-7 to the Jags?

Any given Sunday. The parity looks especially strong in the NFL this year. Doesn't look to be any dominant teams and even a winless team like the Niners have been in every game they've played. They're a lot better than you'd think for an 0-6 squad. 

I'm not overlooking the Bears, but I do consider this a must win game. Gotta win the games you're supposed to win.

Rattled? I know he's a rookie but did you see that perfect ball he threw into double coverage off his back foot with a defender in his face in OT on the road? The kid's got it. I hope we don't just disregard him because he's a rookie.

Trubisky is a rookie and he's looked like it so far. He's made some good plays too though. I think as long as the offense can avoid turnovers, this should be a Panthers win. But, nothing is guaranteed and the Bears could definitely win. Having Kalil back should help the running game a lot.
