I’m not saying I’d switch places. I’m just saying it’s something to be aware of as this team is in a rut.
The Bears are positioned really, really well for the future.
And yes, their stadium is fugly.
I’m just saying, the whole beating .500 teams or over thing doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme when comparing these teams. The Lions are likely headed to the playoffs while the Bears aren’t. Can’t fault the Lions for beating who they should beat, until this recent stretch.
Also, not sure how much validity that I put into the Bears recent stretch. It’s easier, mentally, to win games later in a season when you don’t have much on the line.
They have some nice young pieces but they don’t even know who their QB will be next season and haven’t developed a legit one since the Kennedy administration (pretty much literally) so I’m not sure how well positioned they really are until they sort out the most important position in sports.
The Packers, Saints, Falcons, and Bucs would all be at .500, except they played the Lions and lost.
Yet they are all in the playoff hunt. Lions could also help the Vikings to a losing record.
Then it won’t count if we beat them either.
I actually predicted them to lose. But when Saquon fumbled I was worried. Bears and Packer will be another good game I think as well. Vikings will have their hands full in Cincinnati. Lions need to beat the Broncos.
Also, gotta give it up to GMEN if they go on a run here and miss the playoffs by 1 game because they decided to throw the ball to the most overrated TE in the league instead of run it vs Buffalo……that’s suck for them
Up and coming teams like Miami, Detroit, etc who people are saying this or that about the schedule…well we get a couple quality wins here and start getting hot anything can happen
