As far as the defensive side of the game is concerned the Bears ability of beating the Colts will come down to 2 guys predominatly. I'm talking about Tommie Harris and Dusty Dvoracek! If they can generate a pass rush up the middle in Payton's face he will not look to good mark my words. Secondly the ability to stop the run has got to be a focus and when Tommie and Dusty are creating havok the whole defense looks different, especially when their are no gaps to be gashed. When Adams or Idonije are in there for long bouts and not just in a rotational role, which they do well in, then they wear down to quickly and get blown off the ball. This area will be a huge factor in determaning a win ir loss in Indy. GO BEARS!!

Why not go get Lynch. Last i check he comes from the same defense we play ( Tampa 2 ).

Bill Holland is right on. What he failed to mention is that the Colts are playing without Jeff Saturday and one other starting D lineman. I see a big day coming from Harris and the rest of the D line. Hopefully, Manning's rust will result in some int's. But look for the Colts to run, run, run at first. If the Bears fail against the run, the way they have lately, the pass rush they should be able to generate, is moot. Go Bears.
