It’s finally over, Bears fans.
No more watching a passionless, unmotivated football team every week. Your energy can now be used watching the Bulls and Blackhawks – teams that are among the best in their respective leagues.
Picking games in the final two weeks of the NFL regular season tends to be less complicated as teams have different agendas heading towards the end of the year.
Words escaped me as I watched the Chicago Bears look like a happy but blind birthday kid aimlessly swinging at an pinata against the rival Green Bay Packers. I didn’t expect the Bears to win at Lambeau, but I did expect some effort or, at the very least, not an embarrassing performance.
The 2014 season is barely a quarter of the way through, but the NFL has already seen its first coaching casualty in Oakland.
Since speculating and wishing for coaches to be dumped is a passion of many fans and writers, this week’s Against The Spread speculates on those sitting on the hot seat, or with eyes wandering to their next destination.
With an all-important game on the horizon in Week 17, the Chicago Bears have decided to stick with struggling quarterback Jay Cutler under center. Head coach Marc Trestman made the decision early in the week to avoid any controversy. But there are surely some Bears fans who will want Josh McCown at quarterback after Cutler’s last two weeks.
