Tonight's a fairly significant night, in that the NFL will unveil both its season honors as well as this year's Hall of Fame inductees.
For the Bears, that means waiting with bated breath for the announcement that Orlando Pace will enter the Hall of Fame, despite that awful 2009 past-his-prime campaign. That is seriously the lone Bears' connection to this year's Hall of Fame class.
The Honors list holds just as much Bears' intrigue. Jared Allen is up as a finalist for this year's Salute to Service award opposite Vincent Jackson. For more on Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors projects, click here.
Here's what's up for tonight's festivities:
