Go all out to beat the Packers on Sunday, that is? While they Bears are saying they will play the game as normal with all starters, I don’t believe they will. Despite the fact that history has proven it’s better to play the game as a regular game, even though the Bears have nothing to play for.
I don’t think there’s any chance the Bears play this as a regular game. Maybe they will play the starters at the beginning. But even if they do this, I think that once Green Bay builds a 10-point lead, Jay Cutler and company are out of the game.
And I certainly hope it doesn’t have playoff ramifications, as we all saw what happened in 2005.
Welcome to the playoffs, Packers. It would be ironic, and scary, if Green Bay does tear through the first two rounds and ends up coming to Chicago for the NFC Championship. (Granted the Bears would have to win in the divisional round for this to happen, NOT a given).
