LOL! Love the banner. Nagy has ridden his precious all the way to the bottom, and it's finally over. Maybe Phillips' eye over the franchise will finally collapse and the Bears can finally breathe the free air.

This game. Who cares. Both teams are out of any playoff chance. The Vikings have the slimmest of chances of getting in. I think that they need the Packers to lose by 57 points next week, or something like that. I believe that both of these coaches will be fired at the end of the season as well, and all of the players know it. This game will look like something akin to the Pro Bowl. Where no one really gives a shit what happens. I think the Bears pull this one off, as it looked last night like the Vikings have quit on Zimmer.

I think the Bears will win and it will fuck up the firing processes of both Pace and Nagy because the McCaskeys see the Bears bumslaying meaningless games and interpret it as some sort of positive metric that should be retained.

I know we've been playing poor teams, but I really like the aggressiveness we've seen from our defense front 7 the last two weeks. We have been attacking our opponents, not sitting back. More please! I hope Desai is learning a lot this year, I haven't given up hope on him yet and can see a scenario where a new HC comes in and retains Desai.

A rusty Justin Fields starts and fails to move the football

Mike Zimmer starts a returning Kirk Cousins who redeems himself after an awful performance against a depleted Bear secondary in Chicago. Delvin Cook rushes for over 150 yards.

Vikings 34
Bears 9

Matt Nagy is fired on Black Monday. Ryan Pace is retained. A couple of weeks later, the Bears announce the hiring of Matt Eberflus as their new head coach.

I think the Vikes have completely quit on Zimmer. His presser when he threw Kellen Mond under the bus (Reporter "why don't you want to see Mond play?" Zimmer "I see him every day.") will do nothing to help him.

This will be a beat down of epic proportion.

Bears 42
Purple Guys 6

But the the great thing we will see is Robert Quinn going off. He makes history and ties Derrick Thomas' single game sack record with 7. This let's him blow out the single season record 24 vs 22.5. I have mixed emotions about him having the Bears' single season record as Dent was/is/always will be a Bear. He's a hired guy who may be here 2, 3, or at best 4 years. So if he's going to have our record, lets make it be the whole NFL record.

(Note: like most of my bold predictions, it sadly won't come true.)

@UOK

Nice reference. That's one of my favorite movies.

Instead of The One Ring being thrown into Mount Doom it's going to be Matt Nagy. A week from today he will no longer be the HC of the Bears.

The NFL tried to flex this game out of the schedule entirely:

Bears: 23
Viqueens: 16

Only things of interest: Will Fields play? Will Zimmer join Nagy on the unemployment line Monday a.m.?
The solution to the mess that is the Bears organization would be to sell the team. If, however, it was placed in a receivership, well, being the Bears, we know it would be dropped

Dalvin Cook is on my fantasy team, he only got me 4 pts last week which cost me the championship. He will run wild this week because the Bears seemingly forget to stop the run every other week. Nagy goes out in embarrassing fashion.

16 Bears (will score the only TD as time expires to make Nagy feel good about his offense)

I think we win this one, it was nice to see the defense flying around (albeit via highlights) last week.

Bears - 24
Vikings - 18


So long Nagy!

Well, at least we'll get to watch Horsted get some valuable reps this w...
Roster moves: In other news Wednesday, the Bears placed tight end Jesper Horsted on injured reserve, put practice squad linebacker Charles Snowden on the reserve/COVID-19 list and signed cornerback Stanford Samuels to the practice squad.

I'm excited to watch Fields against a bad defense but still don't see them scoring very much for Bears reasons. Meanwhile the Vikings have had a potent offense at times but they like to play down to their opponents so here we are:
