Records: 49ers (3-5) Bears (4-4)
Bodoglife.com Spread: 49ers -3; Over/Under 43; Money Line: 49ers -175, Bears +155 - Minus three means pretty much a dead-even matchup. I'd imagine a lot of folks are looking to cash in on the Bears. I'm taking 49ers and the under.

Another week, another must-win for the 49ers. The NFL Network debuts it's Thursday night telecast with the 49ers and the Bears, with Mike Singletary making his first head coaching appearance against his old team. Imagine the insanity if this was happening in Chicago. Both teams are having their issues with maintaining any kind of consistency, so it should be interesting to see which team is able to step up and grab the proverbial bull by the horns.
For folks who are unable to watch the game on tv, if you have Sprint and NFL Mobile Live, you'll be able to watch the game on your phone. For those without the NFL Network in the Bay Area, the game is being simulcast on CW, 44/Cable 12.
And one other reminder, howtheyscored created an official Alex Smith FanPost. During and immediately after the game, please do NOT create new Alex Smith FanPosts. Whether Smith plays well or poorly, use this official FanPost for any comments. If you create a new FanPost, the FanPost will be deleted. Additionally, we'll email you the contents of the FanPost so you can paste it into the official thread if you would like. It's simply to prevent a run of similar FanPosts at once. As for the offense and Jimmy Raye outside of the Alex Smith context, let's keep it in the recap thread for now (once it comes out later tonight).
