NFL LOCK OF THE WEEK

I was “perusing” this week’s games to see if I can “supplement” my income.  One game that stood out is the Philadelphia Eagles at the Chicago Bears with the Eagles being favored on the road by 3.5 points.  MY LOCK: TAKE THE BEARS.  Here’s why:  the Eagles and the rest of the country are on this Michael Vick high.  They almost lost to the Giants last week if it weren’t for Manning’s bonehead fumble.  Frankly, I’m not sold on Mike Vick.  Sure he’s exceeding everyone’s expectations but they were set so low that anytime he completes an average pass, everybody ooohs and aaaahs.  It looks like Vick starts games hot but fades in the fourth quarter. The Bears on the other hand have quietly put together 7-3 season.  Credit Lovie Smith for getting these guys to believe in themselves.  Their defense looks like the defense from the Superbowl team a few years back. Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs, Charles Tillman, Julius Peppers…. Wow, talk about scary. 2 out of 3 of their losses this year have been by 3 points.  So take my advice,  and take the Chicago Bears ’cause there’s no way the Bears are gonna lose at home, not this week at least. You can thank me later.
