The Chicago Bears should replace the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the playoffs
There is nothing, and I mean nothing, that could persuade me to believe more people would prefer the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the playoffs over the Bears.
Not only is their roster not too full of excitement, but Todd Bowles has about as much personality as Mars has life. I'll let you connect the dots on that analogy.
As an offense, the Tampa Bay Buccs scored 20.5 points per game, which ranked 20th among the entire league. In a league that seems to be in the offensive revolution, where a team is judged by their offense far before their defense, this offense really doesn't do much.
For fairness, Mike Evans is probably one of the best receivers in the league, year-after-year, and it'd be cool if he had some playoff success.
Now, defensively, they're far more impressive. Holding NFL offenses to 19.1 points per game is impressive. So, that means the playoff game they're going to be in could be a defensive game? Boring!
Sure, they made the playoffs fair and square. Does that mean the whole nation of NFL-loving fans should be forced to watch Todd Bowles coach another game this year? Nope, the Chicago Bears should go in that playoff spot.
