Re: Week 14: LA Rams at Bears Sunday Night on NBC

With the Eagles and Panthers results earlier, does a win here clinch a playoff spot for the Bears?

Re: Fired Hoiberg

The organization is more than a President and GM, but nobody in the organization remains from the 98 championship, so they don't get credit for it. No organization has let their current President/GM preside over such a long period of absolute ineptitude from top to bottom like the Bulls continue to ...

Re: Fired Hoiberg

No, this interim coach is Jim Boylen, different from the Jim Boylan that was interim head coach 10 years ago. Is this the worst run organization in pro sports? 6 championships the last 28 years, best record in the league with Rose recently, got rid of Butler at the right time, drafted pretty well f...

I don't follow the Bulls much at all, but how are GarPax still around? How many coaches do they get to hire/fire? This is Boylan's second stint as coach, right?

Re: College Football - Championship Week (Dec. 1)

After yesterday's results I wouldn't be surprised if Clemson is at #1, followed by Bama, ND and choice of OU/OSU.

Fun fact, among the 4 undefeated teams, the one with the toughest strength of schedule is ND.

Re: NFL Week 11

After the Houston win Monday, with 5 weeks left in the season 8 playoff spots are all but set (90+%), and 7 of the 8 divisions are practically set (85+%). Basically, the only things left to play for are the NFC East (Dallas 52%, WAS 38%, PHI 20%), the NFC wild cards (SEA 75%, MIN 66%, CAR 33%), and ...

Re: Week 13: Bears at Giants, Sunday at noon on Fox

If they tie any game, tiebreakers could come into play with Vikes for the division. Or if they lose grounds to the Vikes, tiebreakers could come into play for WC. Ties, though more prevalent this season, have occurred in 2 of 176 games, about a 1% occurrence. Planning for that possibility is a wast...

Reminder that ther isn't a single situation where tiebreakers will come into play for the Bears this year unless they run the table and tie the Rams/Saints for a bye Most likely, the week 17 game will be meaningless for the Bears, having locked the 3 seed ahead of the game If they tie any game, tie...

Lost in the injury news is that the Lions are very bad, and the Bears are very good.

Fun fact, if the Bears win the Super Bowl and the Raiders get the #1 pick, the Mack trade would result in the Bears tradin the #32 pick for the #33 pick.

Mitchell Trubisky has now started 22 consecutive games at QB for the Bears, which is the longest streak for one Bear QB since Jim Harbaugh in 1992.

The other thing you can look at at this point is what teams are even contending for the playoffs in the NFC? You can basically write off the 49ers, Cards, Bucs and Giants up front.
