We've got everything you need to know about the upcoming Bears vs Bucs game!

At one point, the Chicago Bears knew that December would determine their fate when it came to playoffs hopes, but after beating the Packers on Thanksgiving night, the Bears lost three in a row, and at this point are playing for pride.  What better to get the juices going than facing their former head coach, Lovie Smith?

We discussed this week whether the Bears are better off than when Lovie Smith was still in Chicago, and while their record may not indicate it since then, most would agree that is was time to move on. But letting the third all-time winningest head coach in Chicago Bears history go after a 10-6 season didn't sit well with many fans.

Fast-forward three seasons, and this is John Fox's team now. While there's no way to know how long his coordinators will be here, we have to assume that Fox will be the head coach for years to come, and most fans would tell you they are alright with thought.

As the Bears prepare to take on Lovie Smith and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, let's take a look at the particulars:
