Footballic Ramblings: Bears Win (a Meaningless Game)

Huzzah to the Chicago Bears for winning a game they should've won; now, where were these victories at the beginning of the season, when, y'know, the Bears controlled their own destiny (and path to the playoffs). Barring a miraculous quadfecta of events occurring --namely, Minnesota's entire starting lineup getting devoured by a starved pack of wolves, the Cowboys losing their next three games, the Buccaneers losing their next three games and, oh yeah! Chicago winning its next three games-- the Bears, in spite of Sunday's win, will be watching the playoffs from their couches. Coming up on Thursday night the Bears host New Orleans who at 7-6 (the Bears record, btw) are mired in last place in the hyper-competitive NFC South. I'll be back later in the week with a full preview of N'awlins v Second City.
