And we still would get a 3rd place schedule.Yup. I'd rather go 10-6 and miss the playoffs than 7-9 or 8-8. If we had a first round pick it would be a different story, but the difference between 5-6 picks in the 2nd round isn't worth the amount of confidence and progress it would mean for this team.
If we win out it means mitch took a step, and this offense did as well. Thats all I have wanted from this team since the New Orleans game(which is when I decided this season was shot).
Means nothing. You see what happened from last year to this year.Am I the only one who thinks "confidence" and "progress" means jack shit from one year to the next?
Tannehill can't run block though....If you think the run game/play action is why he’s good, then you haven’t been paying attention. Henry has been better because of Tannehill, not the other way around.
Obviously this is a pro-Mitch/anti-Nagy narrative driven post.
Are people still thinking Bears get in the playoffs with same record as Rams?! It goes division rules, then head 2 head in every scenario. A quick google shows this.Only if we are tied with Rams alone. If its a 3 way tie then head to head does not count...it goes by conference record in this case
But that's only for teams in different divisions. You can't have a 3-way tie with two teams from one division. You do a tiebreak to eliminate one of the teams in the same division, then apply the above standard to the ones who are left. That's why the Rams would win the tiebreak. Bears would win the tiebreak with the Vikings, eliminating the Vikings. Bears would then lose the tiebreak to the Rams b/c of head-to-head.To Break A Tie For The Wild-Card team
Head-to-head, if applicable.
Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
Strength of schedule.
The meatball kicker takes are great. Guy didn't start missing at all really until he was injured, then missed more because he had to keep kicking with an injury, and now that he isn't injured - surprise, he's making them all again.If it does indeed play out that our season was lost with the San Diego game (although the Raiders and Rams games are as much at fault most likely), it will be telling that the Kicker position cost us post season implications in back to back years. Since it will be indirectly correlated this year, I don't think Pace will get questioned as much as he should around the kicker position.
bingo!Bears are playing meaningful football in December......its better than than being eliminated
Toast is correct as he is using the same tiebreak that I noted in post 58.Several people have stated in fact in this thread the way a 3 way tie result would be handled with several different mechanisms and results. Obviously there can only be one true answer which also means people are stating things as fact which are inaccurate or incorrectly interpreted.
