    True.

    I don't even remember the last time being so relaxed during a Bears game.

    Some of us have fun rooting for the Bears during each individual game, with the standings being a rather secondary consideration. I'm not a team employee, just a fan. I enjoyed watching the game today. The Bears won and I was pleased. Tomorrow that will be forgotten as I move on to more pressing matters. Then when next Sunday arrives: Go Bears!

    It's always good when the Bears win. If you don't care at this point, why watch/comment.

    You seem to be in line with my thoughts (refer to "Play to Win" post).

    Win or lose my mortgage is still due at the end of the month and the Bears win-loss record ain't paying it. I'll be in a slightly better mood tomorrow though.

    Exactly. It really doesn't effect me one way or another (unless they lose to GB in which I owe a neighbor a 12-pack). None of the games really matter to me for I don't have anything on the line other than wanting them to win.

    I watch/cheer for them because I'm what some people call, a "fan" regardless of their record. Am I disappointed/discouraged about their record this year? YES. You're topic said "...Who really gives a Sh*t?!". So I replied. I didn't mean to offend you rather just voiced my opinion to your post like you did about the game. Who really gives a sh** about any team: professional, college, high school;, etc.? We watch/cheer for them because we want them to do well and win. I'm done with this topic. Later...

    I'm definitely happier when they win.

    Plus the Vikings suck.

    It's a pyrrhic victory that does nothing to advance the team. Yes a win feels good but it accomplishes nothing but put back our draft status and muddy's the waters of change.

    I am not sure if I should feel better about the defense or not.

    The Bears got rocked by the Patriots. The Patriots followed up by blowing out the Broncos, and putting up 42 on the colts.
    The Bears got rocked by the Packers. The Packers followed up by destroying the Eagles(who have a high rated defense).

    I am glad for the win today. I miss Lovie smith, but I hope we win next week too.

    Since I am not employed by the team, its place in the standings is not a measure of my personal worth. The standings are somewhat interesting, but not nearly as much as the individual games. For a few hours on Sundays, watching a game provides enjoyment for me, my family and friends, particularly if the Bears win. During the rest of the week we deal with concerns that have greater meaning for us.

    I certainly would not root for the Bears to lose games in order move up in the draft, especially since the draft is a crap shoot. Building a team culture that aims to win every game is more important. If the Bears should run the table for the rest of the year, I would be pleased and not upset that it "muddies the waters of change". Next year is next year. Next Sunday I would get a kick out of watching the Bears win.

    It felt good to win for a change, but it's hard to get too worked up beating the Vikings this year. They just aren't very good.

    Still, we won a game at home, proving it can be done.

    Even in victory Jay managed two picks. Same old Jay.

    This is how I feel overall, but as I've said from early on this season: this team is boring. The 2-8 Jets have less talent, but they are significantly more watchable than this bunch. That might be due to unrealized expectations, but either way, watching this team is like watching the Bears Cowboys game in 2004.

    I'd rather watch golf than watch the Jets play football.

    Fair enough, but they've been more competitive than the Bears this year.

    Did you watch them play the Patriots? That was the best football game of the season, imo.

    Honestly, if they would've played Vick this whole time, they'd probably be in the mix for the playoffs, and that's with them missing their top 5 CBs .

    Meh...they bore me...and I'm a defensive guy! I live in Jersey, so I'm subjected to them every week they play. Give me a good defensive game any day of the week...it's just something about that team man.

    The Jets have won 2 games, given up more points and scored less points then the bears, have actually gotten outscored 2 to 1(the Bears haven't) got shut out by SD 31-0, and then got stomped by Buff 43-23, how were those "competitive", and how have they been "more competitive" then the Bears?

    We beat a bad team led by a rookie QB missing its best player at home by one score. Let's break out the champagne!

    Our WRs are still beasts. Forte is a baller. Allen, Young, Jennings, and Bostic looked good. Thought the makeshift OL did a decent job. The D contained a weak offense.

    On the other hand, the STs are still a joke. Cutler had great yardage and completion numbers but still threw 2 picks (we would have lost had Minny been able to capitalize). Bennett seems like his head isn't in the game too often. Trestman's play calling and clock management remains bush league. We won a meaningless game that may push us down in draft order. With Detroit losing we now have a 2% chance of getting a wildcard.

    That about sums it up.
