The Chicago Bears should replace the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs

Okay, I know this one isn't "possible" or whatever, but you've read this far. Hear me out.

If you're a football fan and you would prefer to watch Mason Rudolph and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the postseason over Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears in the playoffs, there's something wrong.

And now, I know the Chicago Bears and Justin Fields haven't been perfect, but the Bears' middleground clears the Steelers' middleground.

Without TJ Watt, the Steelers are much less impressive of a football team. It's a night and day difference when Watt isn't on the field. Maybe it's because he's an absolute game wrecker. Maybe. Without him, who are the 2023 Pittsburgh Steelers?

This gets into the FSU debate of "deserving vs entertaining," and the Chicago Bears could be both. A team who scores 17.9 points per game is playing in a playoff game. I mean, it's madness.

The petition starts now to get the Pittsburgh Steelers out of the playoffs. Because, really, do the Steelers deserve to be in the playoffs? Nope, the Chicago Bears should go in that playoff spot.
