Chicago Bears vs Tampa Bay Bucs 1st Quarter Open Thread

Join us below for live updates and instant analysis of today's Chicago Bears game!

It's one thing for the Bears to be facing a hapless Bucs team, with the possibility in the back of every fan's mind that they could actually lose, but can you imagine what will happen if their former head coach Lovie Smith actually delivers the final blow that knocks the Bears out of playoff contention?

That just might lead to the biggest internet meltdown of all-time for Chicago fans. It will be UGLY.

Of course, Lovie has been the consummate professional all week, redirecting all of the reunion stories back to simply focusing on getting his team another win, but many fans have been lighting up the discussion forums and radio shows wondering what would have happened if the Bears had kept Lovie Smith around a few more years.

Yes, likely the same fans who were ecstatic when the team let Lovie go, and who were excited when Marc Trestman was hired.  But that's the way it goes...

For the Bears to keep their playoff hopes alive, they need another win.  Can they do it today? Stay tuned...

This is your 1st Quarter Open Thread... Have fun!
