Re: Fired Hoiberg

How management continues to be allowed to make decisions is astounding to me. Clean house, everybody out.

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.

FO updated their playoff odds. Bears up to 80% to win division, 94.7% to make playoffs, 20% to earn a bye.

Bears now 4th in weighted DVOA behind Chiefs, Rams and Saints.

Re: Week 11: Vikings at Chicago Sunday night on NBC

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. Detroit is hanging by a thread, they'd basically be done if the Bears win Thursday. Philly and Atlanta are already in ...

Re: Week 11: Vikings at Chicago Sunday night on NBC

Bears now project to finish the season 11-5, which means the Packers can't catch them and the Vikings only can if they win out to go 11-4-1 against one of the toughest remaining schedules in the NFL.

Re: College Football - Week 11 (Nov. 10)

I don't think there is any realistic path for UCF to make the playoff. At this point, the interesting scenario would be if Clemson, ND, Michigan and Georgia win out with Bama losing to Georgia in the SEC championship. Would be awful for SEC to steal two spots two years straight.
