WCG is your go to place to talk Chicago Bears and Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football!
This is your open thread for tonight, but keep two things in mind. One, the thread is rated WCG-MA, so there will be a few naughty words in the thread, and two, keep pictures and GIFs out of the thread as it just slows down load times.

And for a Kyle Long update you can check this out.
Rode the elevator with Kyle Long who said his injury is coming along but added he was just on the field and he "talked to a few of my friends on the Rams and they were cold. They asked me 'how do you do this every week?'" Bears weather is real my frents.— Danny Parkins (@DannyParkins) December 10, 2018

I can’t wait for Sunday Night.
The 2018 Chicago Bears have been compared to the 2017 Los Angeles Rams so much this year, that it will be interesting to see this Rams team up close and personal to see where the Bears could be headed.
The parallels between the two teams are well documented.
Both teams were going from an old school defensive coach to a new school offensive minded head coach. Both teams invested draft capital to move up in the draft to get their franchise quarterback. Both QBs struggled through growing pain as rookies in an outdated offensive scheme. Both franchises dedicated themselves to getting their quarterbacks on track in year two.
The Rams went 11-5 under first year head coach Sean McVay in 2017, and the Bears are on a similar winning path at 8-4 under first year head coach Matt Nagy this season.
In McVay’s second year, the Rams look like one of the best teams in the NFL, so where will Chicago be in Nagy’s second season?
The present and the future looks bright for Bears’ fans.
