It's the Marion Barber show from here on out until Matt Forte and/or Jay Cutler return.
Here is a look at hypothetical propositional wagers between the Bears and Broncos.
First team to score
Broncos. Unless there’s a defensive or special teams score, or some kind of broken play, I don’t expect a touchdown to be the first score. So, it really comes down to which team’s offense finds itself in field goal range first. I’ll take the home team here.
First Bears player to score
Matt Prater. See above for further explanation, but the Bears offense is so anemic right now that the safer money is on the Broncos to put up the first points by way of field goal.
First Bears player to catch a pass
Johnny Knox. Knox was targeted on Caleb Hanie’s first three attempts last week against the Chiefs and he’s clearly the preferred target. He should get early looks again as Hanie tries to get into a comfort zone on the road.
Bears player to catch most passes
Devin Hester. The real question is which B...

The Bears will be without Matt Forte this Sunday, due to a MCL sprain in his right knee.
Forte hasn’t been able to practice all week. With Forte out, Marion Barber and Kahlil Bell will likely split the carries.

Bell has appeared in nine games as well. He’s carried the ball 15 times...
Matt Prater helped Tim Tebow deliver another improbable comeback. But Bears running back Marion Barber III might have been Tebow's greatest helper.
During an appearance Wednesday on ESPN 1000's 'Waddle and Silvy Show' in Chicago, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler discussed his thumb injury, the one thing Caleb Hanie needs to do better and much more:
Here we are in NFL Week 14, with three weeks remaining in the regular season after this week. The season has just flown by. For teams holding on to slim playoff hopes, each game is now very crucial and this week seems some very important matchups with playoff implications.

Before last week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, I was pretty confident the Bears could win at Denver. I thought they would beat Kansas City, beat Denver, and Seattle. They would lose to Green Bay, and beat Minnesota, and the Bears would make the playoffs. That of course was before last weeks game, and before Matt Forte went down with a grade 2 MCL sprain. The same injury...
Mike Florio on whether Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck will play together, if there is a tie for the worst record in the league, could Andrew Luck’s fate be decided by a coin flip and will Mike Martz and Caleb Hanie remain in Chicago if the Bears fail to make the postseason?
