GAME RELATED: NALEDGE, OF KIDZ IN THE HALL, GOES IN ON THE BEARS PLAYOFF CHANCES
It’s our second favorite time of year over here at AlreadyTV, time for the NFL playoffs so throughout the next few weeks we’ll be bringing you a new features pertaining to such. To start it off, we get with Naledge of Kidz in the Hall & Brainiac Society, an ill emcee by trade and a Chicago native by nature, to chop it up about one his favorite subjects, the Chicago Bears. So check below for a quick Q & A session on everything from who he’s checking for to take their game to the next level in this weekend’s divisional match-up against the Seahawks, to the Bears chances at another Super Bowl appearance.
AlreadyTV: This is the Bears first playoff appearance in 4 seasons, what’s the scene in the city like right now?
Naledge: Um, people forget that it wasn’t that long ago that the Bears went to the Super Bowl with Rex Grossman. That was the last time. That team seemed dominant defensively and on special teams. The assumption is Jay Cutler is the deciding factor of whether we will do good because he and the O-line have been erratic. Cutler is being scrutinized daily for being seemingly aloof but we love the Bears here. Them and the Hawks (who just won the Stanley Cup) get the most love as teams go here. Having a black coach makes the southside love the Bears in the hood. The other teams just have certain players we all love.
AlreadyTV: How do you and your crew usually post up for a big game(sports bar, friends house, tailgate)?
Naledge: I usually watch the game at my crib if I don’t have tickets. I have a lot of friends on the team. I’m superstitious about bars so I only go to bars after they win. Bull and Bear, ESPNzone and Market are good spots.
AlreadyTV: What intrigues you most about the match up with Seattle and which player from the Bears are you expecting to show out?
Naledge: We’ve gotten a great amount of luck this season by facing three 3rd string quarterbacks and getting away with stealing a win from the Lions. That luck gave us a bye and put us against the worst team in the playoffs at home, it’s made us believe we’ve got a shot if Cutler doesn’t throw too many INTs. I think Lance Briggs and Matt Forte are both due for big games. Hester can be a X factor as always…
AlreadyTV: Is this the year for a Bears Super Bowl? and Why?
Naledge: As I said, we have a legit shot at it…I think we’ll be best playing at Home.
AlreadyTV: If the Bears get to the Super Bowl, will we see a Naledge/Kidz in the Hall/Brainiac Society remake of the “Super Bowl” shuffle, and who would produce it?
Naledge: You can google it but Rhymefest, Glc and I made a song for the last Bears Super Bowl and they lost. I’ll wait until they win to decide to do another…
AlreadyTV: Speaking of music, what projects can we look forward to from you in the near future?
