Whiskey had a good post asking who your MVP is of the last 8 games. I want to know who you think the MVP will be for the next 8 if we make the playoffs. Alternatively, who is the scapegoat if we miss.

MVP: The easy answer is Mack for reasons we all know. I think the darkhorse could be Howard. If he can help us grind out games and keep Rodgers, Cousins (twice), Goff off the field, we'll have a great shot at not only making the playoffs, but winning the division.

Scapegoat: Gotta be Biscuit. With the defense playing how we know they can play, only a lack of offense production would hinder us, and that starts with Mitch.

What say you?

If the 2nd half MVP is Leonard Floyd, we're going to the Super Bowl.

I like your thinking on this

Wouldn't that be interesting. Floyd starts flashing, and Mack gets healthy.

2nd half MVP is going to be the Bears secondary. It's cheap picking a unit and not a guy, but I think they are going to shut down some teams, and add another 6-7 INT's before the season is up. That and I REALLY like the direction Eddie Jackson and Kyle Fuller are headed.

2nd half scapegoat will be Matt Nagy. The Bears have five VERY winnable games in the 2nd half. Two vs the Lions, Giants, 49ers and the Pack at home. If we go worse than 5-3 it will be due to game prep and play calling.

Just to take it a different direction I will say Cohen. I think the intangibles he brings even when he doesnt have the ball continues to open things up for others. He will keep stretching the field and be our special teams ace. We already know we have the D to get us there and it will have to be a group effort with Mack leading the way. Our secondary will have to keep coming up huge.

Honestly it would be hard to pin the goat on anyone but Nagy or Bisquit. So I would have to go with Bisquit. I trust Nagys ability to adjust, so it will come down to if Bisquit can avoid INTS.

Jordan Howard. Nagy figures out the run game, weather turns brutal and Howard plows this team into your mom, er I mean the playoffs.

If we make the playoffs the MVP will have to be my man Biscuit. I'm really happy where he's at right now given how new everything is, but in order to make the playoffs and then to win the first game and then be competitive on the road (presumably) for the second game, he has to improve his road game performance. I posted this in another thread, but his road game passer rating is not good.

The scapegoat will be Biscuit too, but that's only because its fashionable to rip the QB.

MVP: I’m going with Kyle Fuller. The guy has been playing all out flashing all over the field. Getting Mack back should increase his production even more.

Scapegoat: Trupubebeardski, QB’s get all the glory and all the blame.

In that scenario:

MVP for me would be Tarik Cohen. He is so unlike any player we have had, for as long as I can remember, that I believe he would be seen as the piece that was missing to elevate us in the nfc north. everyone has pass rushers, qb's and rb's. Only the bears have the wild card that is cohen.

Scapegoat: will be whoever drops the int / td that would seal it for us because any playoff loss will be like our regular season losses, one play away from victory.
