If the season ended today we would be the 7th seed in the NFC playoffs. Lol

I know we would get stomped out of the first round but it’s good experience for the young guys to get.

well, it's going to get worse/better. This team could very well win 5 more games and we keep the band together.

This.

Lot of people overreacting from the game yesterday. This team is very much capable of beating the 9ers and Pittsburgh heading into the bye.

My biggest fear is we sweep the vikings and lions, finish 8-9, and nagy tells the mccaskeys that they are "close" so they end up keeping him.

Even after last week, when we had the same record as the Vikings, we were 3rd in the division. Why? I'm not sure, I didn't look close enough. But NFL.com had us listed as 3rd in North (and still are) and if you look at the playoff picture, we are sitting at #9.

Yeah but just think, a few more 35-point blowouts and this team will be SO BONDED. Like incredibly close. Like is that Roquan's schlong against my butt or Whiteheads? And it's a beautiful thing. I just trust these guys so much. Someone hand me a tissue.

Tiebreaker is division record, then conference record, I believe.

Fields will not save Nagy's job. I guarantee that you don't have to worry about it.

Agreed. Nagy was as good as gone after the Browns disaster.

But legimately, this could be a much better Bears teams by seasons end IF fields improves. This is a big IF, but if Fields make some strides over the next few games, Ifedi returns, etc., the Bears have the running game and the defense to pull out some wins.

That’s actually my nightmare. 7th seed and George extends everyone because “we made the playoffs!”

I want Super Bowls and NFC championships. 7th seed does nothing for me.

I still think Nagy is gone with a 7 seed appearance. He clearly can develop a QB

He’s offense has ranked almost dead last every years he’s been here. John Fox could have done that.

You’ve got to use McCaskey logic.

Why do people play the "if the season ended" game this early? it doesn't matter especially when bye weeks just started
