2011 Week 17: Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Open Thread

So it's come to this for the 2011 Chicago Bears. A tumultuous start leads to a bitter ending, as what was once considered a playoff season has crashed and burned after an uncommon injury to quarterback Jay Cutler.

And what we'll see today is indeed two proud teams, who are not in uncommon situations...

Both teams have a quarterback who wasn't the starter on opening day. Both teams lost their star running backs to knee injuries. Both teams have defensive-minded head coaches, and those defenses let both teams down time and again.

This game's outcome only affects draft choices, so keep an eye out for whichever mid-round pick we get. It's been an emotional season, and as always, we thank you for making WCG the single best damn Chicago Bears site on the internet.
