At 4-0 the big game is approaching. We as Lions fans have been waiting for this game since last year, the fact that it is a Monday night is even better. This game was also one of the fastest to sell out. So we all know it will be good and most likely close contest.
Plus, I know many of us are not big fans of the Bears, (As in many of you here have fantasies of a Lion tearing off a bears head every night), but yes, so I am going put up a poll. What Bears player would you prefer to have the most humiliating game? Who would you like to just be dominated or destroyed. You can either look at this from a stand point of who we take out of this game will get us a win. Or you can view this as I just cannot stand the existence of this player so I want them humiliated by our players.
For me, it has to be Julius Peppers. I will admit, he is a beast and it is hard for any team to keep him contained. But there are two reasons I want him taken out of this game. First of all, from a strategic standpoint. After a mentally horrible start to this season for Jeff Backus, plus many blame him for last years hit on Stafford, he will want to avenge his reputation as our starter. I want Backus to absolutely own Peppers, it is a long shot, but I know Backus can do it when he plays at a high level. (Unless he gets benched again, or was he hurt? I don't know) And when you shut down Peppers you have a much higher chance of winning this game. Number two reason, I know Peppers was doing his job at the time, but I cannot get over the fact he destroyed Stafford. REVENGE!!!!.......cough*
So who would you like taken out of this game? Strategically/for revenge.
