We need Washington OR New York to lose at least one game.
We need Minnesota to lose one game.
We need to win out obviously.
I know hence why there is still hope. Until they are mathematically eliminated I'm gonna keep my spirits up (won't sit well with some posters but whatever, they can just go **** themselves honestly). Minny has @HOU/GB, Washington has @PHI/DAL and NYG has @BAL/PHI.
As much as I hate to say it I rather we win our last two games and we miss out on the playoffs. We need some changes. We owe it to Marshal and cutty.
doesn't make sense. Y not make the playoffs, see what happens and make the changes anyway. The OL is gonna get changed in offseason regardless, maybe even a TE, and some defensive positions through FA signings and drafting.
We might as well lose out, but we won't. This happens every year to the Bears when we have some semblance of a team. Start out well, start to suck, lose control of our playoff destiny, get knocked out of the playoffs, then win enough to drop us drastically in the draft and go into next season saying "well we finished off strong so we're on the right track." No, we're never on the right track. The more we lose, the more this organization might actually want to try to get some quality players and take the offensive side of the ball, particularly coaching, seriously.
Sorry to disappoint but the Vikes might not have much to worry about. HOU already has the bye and likely homefield advantage unless the Colts play spoiler on the last day and New England catches them. We'll see if HOU plays their starters next week vs. Minny. It's over for the Bears IMO. Even if they win out, they have no tiebreakers going for them. They should beat ARI, but the Lions will likely put the nail in the coffin to their inexcusable season.
Houston will not be resting. They are going for the #1 seed and homefield. They don't want to play at NE after what happened last week. Trust me, they will be going all out for a win next week vs Minny.
While we do have the tie-breaker over Dallas. They can still get in above us. If Dallas beats NO/Wash they get the division title and the 4 seed. If Giants win out vs Baltimore and Philly, they get in above us. A Pitt win would have been nice.
