Chicago Bears lose to Green Bay Packers

This is the more likely scenario (not to be negative). The Packers are hot right now and look nearly unstoppable on offense. Additionally, their defense is putting things together as they shut down the Titan’s solid offense fairly well.

If the Bears lose, they can only get in by one other scenario and that is if the Los Angeles Rams beat the Arizona Cardinals with either John Wolford or Blake Bortles as their starting quarterback. That’s not something to count on especially after the Rams struggled to put up points on the Seattle Seahawks even with Jared Goff at quarterback. The Bears would get the Seattle Seahawks or New Orleans Saints round one.

If this happens, this is much like the scenario above. They made the playoffs. People deserve to be rewarded for getting them there, somehow.

Now, if the Cardinals sneak in over Chicago, that’s different. The Bears need to make changes fast. The Bears immediately need to be finding a new defensive coordinator for Chuck Pagano and they need to find a new quarterback. Nothing against Trubisky, but they need to find a way to do better.

They will have much more time over the offseason to find solutions to issues. The only issue with that is can we trust this staff to solve these issues? Doubtful, but we will have to wait and see.
