New Orleans Saints vs Chicago Bears 1st Quarter Open Thread

The Saints come to town surprisingly fighting for their playoff lives. The Bears play for pride. We'll see how this goes.

Yeah, that pretty much sums this season up.

When you've reached this kind of point in the season, you can't help but turn your eyes to the future.

Whether you're in the "lose out for draft status" or "win out for pride", camp, in reality we're all wondering what will happen for 2015. Will some or all of the coaching staff remain? Will the Bears be willing and/or able to trade away the statistically best quarterback they've ever had?

Can any of the young kids on defense show the ability to grow and develop? Will the offense finally find the thing that hasn't clicked into place for them in the previous 13 games? When does training camp start, anyways? (Hint: it's July)

It's a tough fence to stand on:  for some fans, they'd prefer to see an embarrassment that pushes ownership over the edge, forcing them to blow up the team and initiative massive change. Others just want to be able to enjoy playing spoiler.

Whichever side you're on, at least the season will end, and we can put away the high hopes we all had to bring them back out in the Spring.
