    Mullin says it looks like a playoff opportunity isn't going to happen this year.

    I never thought there was a legit shot at the playoffs anyways so no hurt feelings here.

    I'm used to us not making the playoffs. But I'm sure hoping we crawl out of 3rd place in the division this year. Even a 2nd place finish would be bearable if we were ahead of the Packers. It does get old being 3rd place bottom-feeders - this time with the lowly Vikings.

    Hey! The fat lady ain't singing yet! (Although I think she may be warming up her vocal chords)

    You guys crowning the lions' already? They are who we think they are. They'll (dirty) play themselves out of it.

    There's still a lot of football left to be played. They play the games for a reason. And that reason is... ANY GIVEN SUNDAY!

    Sing it Jim...

    7 games to play you just never know, but the reality is we would have to go on a tear and Detroit and the Packers would have to stumble, we could simply have a better record than the Lions and Packers and still win the division. I know the Lions schedule is a cupcake, but it is simply too many games left for me to completely give up on the division.

    Lovie, about now, would be telling us "I like our chances" and "There's a lot of football left to play" and "The sun will still come up in the morning"..........

    Yeah, when this season started, I just wanted us to figure out the whole Trestman Cutler relationship to see if it could work. I was not thinking of playoffs.

    Then we rushed Jay out there a week too soon. To say the least, I'm pretty frustrated.

    I'm just disappointed with the season. I was one of those guys who had unrealistic expectations. I think we'll have a lot of success with Emery/Trestman, but there is no instant gratification here. I now realize it may take awhile for Emery/Trestman to bring a Super Bowl trophy to Chicago - especially due to the fact we exist in a very good division now. Even Detroit sweeps us now.

    This has been a concern of mine. I think the Lions game really hurt us. I don't think we will see a wild card from the NFC North. Win the division or stay home.

    absolutely JoeBear. The second Lion game may very well have been that straw that broke the camels back. We needed that game. Both ours and the Lions schedule are fairly easy at this point, so it is hard for either to gain on the other. The current standings (between us and the Lions) are very possibly how they will end up ... and they are ahead of us.
