You're not wrong, but the end result feeling of being kicked in the gut to either get into or advance in the playoffs is the same. Feels just as bad, if not worse, than Rodgers' bomb to Randall Cobb to knock us out of a playoff berth.Otis Day wrote:G08, I am confused by your term, "typical Bears." Not trying to start shit, but this team was atypical from past years. The past 8 yrs they didn't sniff the playoffs. Not getting to the playoffs and sucking hind tit would be more typical to me.
I feel like I'm more deflated than I am elated at the end of NFL seasons with this team of mine.
I do think this is the start of something great, God willing we stay healthy, but I just don't think we can look at playoff berths like a gift-horse in the mouth. Nobody is promised anything and the fucking fact that we lost by 1 point even though we had a 43 yard FG to advance just burns me up.
