â†µâ‡¥"We need the Bears to blow it," Wade told reporters in Minneapolis with a laugh. "Where are they playing, at home? Great. They'll definitely blow it." â†µâ†µFirst off, it sounds like Wade was joking when he made those comments (the "laugh" part would probably give that away), although that didn’t stop Matt Snyder over at FanHouse from bashing Wade, saying that “casual fans wouldn't recognize the difference between him and a used car salesman.” Burn. Players in the NFL wear helmets with large facemasks -- the casual fan probably wouldn’t even recognize Adrian Peterson at the supermarket. â†µ
â†µSnyder does go on to list six reasons why the Bears will win tonight, all of which seem reasonable enough. Except there is just one thing to keep in mind: The Packers have nothing left to play for but the chance to ruin their rival’s season. You can never underestimate the motivation this can provide. Just ask the Eagles. â†µ
â†µThe Bears are favored by four. Bet what possessions you may have left on the Pack. I'm only down like $80 this season, you can totally trust me. â†µâ†µ
