From NFL.com, by Senior Analyst Gil Brandt


These teams met in October, with the Bears winning 37-6 on a Sunday night in Chicago. Shaun Alexander did not play in that game. Over the last two years, these teams have the two best records in the NFC with 49 wins between them Seattle gives up 126 rushing yards per game, they are not as good on the road, and they seem to have trouble against physical teams. That said, the Bears have lost two straight divisional playoff games at home -- in 2005 and 2001. QB Rex Grossman was 17 of 41 in last year's playoff loss to the Panthers. He's been up and down all season, and if history means anything, this should be an up week.


Seattle needs WR Darrell Jackson to play -- he caught 10 TD passes in the regular season. Look for the Bears to be conservative and try to control the ball running and throwing short passes to TE Desmond Clark. They'll rely on return specialist Devin Hester for field position. Chicago misses DT Tommie Harris, and it really shows in pass defense.


I don't think Alexander will be a big factor in this game, but QB Matt Hasselbeck is the key since the Bears are struggling in pass defense. Chicago's special teams are very good, and Seattle sometimes struggles in that area.


I think this is a closer game than people think.

Looks pretty good here in Cleveland, WJW-DT via WOW cable. No subchannels.


The oranges on the Bears uniforms seem a bit off. Long shot of the crowd was a little grainy. I think the Saints game last night was a tad better.


I see they fixed the DLP Cam intro so it is actually HD and looks good now



GO BEARS!

Good morning from icy Seattle.


KCPQ-DT seemed to get their house in order from yesterday's game. Much improved PQ during the fast motion stuff.
I'll take 14.5-15.0 mb/s no problem.

OTA source looks good, Comcast looks identical to my eyes.


BTW, the field looks funny. The cameras on the wires above the field are awesome!

I'd be surprised if the other stations that were having problems yesterday haven't improved today too.


My guess: Due to the way the Splicer works, there was some setting the net was sending out yesterday, that affected some, not all, of FOX affiliates.

Well, Rex is certainly letting it all hang out today. Great throw & reception, and getting into the end zone.
