The Chicago Bears are approaching this game as a playoff game-- win, and next week matters. Lose, and you can kiss a playoff berth goodbye.
What we have seen from this team over the period of the last few weeks is growth, fight, and dedication, and that is thanks in large part to the stability that John Fox has brought to a team that was previously turned upside down. We're seeing what good coaching can do for a team, regardless of how much talent is on the roster.
Today, the Bears face an opponent that, in many ways, are in worse shape than Chicago. The San Francisco 49ers have their own issues, starting at the top of their food chain-- CEO Jed York-- and falling all the way down to the roster.
The Bears have a shot to win their fourth game in their last five... Can they keep it going?
