BBAO: Twitter chat coming Thursday

We're Black and Blue All Over:

As I alluded to Tuesday, we're planning a second opportunity for live chat-like interaction this week considering the magnitude of Sunday's game at Soldier Field.

We hit the SportsNation crowd Tuesday. On Thursday, I'll conduct a casual chat via Twitter using the hashtag "#PackBearsChat." You'll get a role in deciding its direction, and here's how it will work:

Sometime today, tweet me at @espn_nfcnblog with what you think will be the most important deciding factor in the game. The Green Bay Packers' run game? The Chicago Bears' defensive takeaways? The matchup of Brandon Marshall and Tramon Williams?

I'll pick the top three factors and use them to structure a chat that will begin on Twitter at noon ET/11 a.m. CT on Thursday. I'll throw out some thoughts on the issues, await your responses and we'll go from there.

If you can't make it, we'll pull every tweet with the "#PackBearsChat" hashtag into an archive and post them on the blog. It's a variation off what AFC West blogger Bill Williamson and I did a few weeks ago. It's new. We'll try it and see how it works. I hope you enjoy.

Let's take our morning tour while we have a moment:
