It’s nice that we were able to put off seeing a do-or-die game until mid-November. We can’t deny that Sunday’s matchup with the Vikings is such a contest. Either the Bears put the 3-5 Vikings out of their misery, and in all likelihood cost coach Brad Childress his job. Or the Vikings win, are back in it, and virtually seal the Bears’ fate in 2010.
I would very much hate to see the Vikings crawl back in and end the Bears’ hopes. But if having watched the Bears for 32 years has taught me anything, it’s that if the Bears don’t take care of business, they don’t deserve to be in the hunt. Easy as that.
What do you think is going to happen?
