Didn't see a thread yet so here we go. Vikings have a lot of important injuries on defense, so points should be had. I anticipate another heartbreaker at the end but nbd.

Go Bears, get that Top 10 pick!

Certainly feels like 3 meaningless play out the string games are coming up.

How can a team be so much worse at first drives than the rest of the game?

Whoever #58 is, he needs to get off the field. He's been looking around without a clue on at least 2 snaps so far and has been out of position allowing big plays on both.

This might come as a shock, but the Bears gave up an opening drive TD

That is 6 TDs on the opponents first offensive possession in their last 9 games. They've also given up one TD in each of their last 10 first quarters (1 was a pick 6 by Jay, 1 was a punt return for a TD, the rest were given up by defense)

Cutler is really holding onto that football. Not sure if WRs aren't getting open if he doesn't want to screw up his good statistical season during meaningless games (joking)

Fox is so bad at clock management. Doesn't use his three TOs on defense with 1:15 left. Then gets the ball on offense with 20 seconds and actually tries to score. What?

I think any goodwill and positive vibes the Bears got this season are being washed a way. Fairly or not. 5-6 start the last two seasons and looking like a similar ending this year.

Long needs to go back to RG. Gotta take Stanley in May if he's there.

Thought we were finally building something at least halfway decent on the line but now I think we are back to having one of the 2-3 worst lines in the league.

2nd time in 3 weeks he is picked off on a screen pass inside their own 20.

Just a brutal game all around from all phases except ironically special teams

Let's get Fales out there and see what weve got

Grasu is bad, so is Leno. Slauson is quality, Long should be ok at RT. Bushrod needs to play and they need to draft a tackle high.

Another Bears game mercifully ends.

Looking forward to the season ending as well.

4 playoff appearances in the last 21 years. I know we aren't even in the conversation for most pathetic franchises of the last 20 years but still we aren't much higher.

I'd rather let Cutler finish out his solid season and cement his job for 2016. Seeing if Fales is a worthy backup isn't that important.

Besides, this is about as positive as Bear fans have been about Cutler since he got here. A benching coupled with Fales not sucking would pretty much relegate us back into the throes of QB meatballdom.
