The 10-4 Lions Are Knocking At The Door For The Playoffs
By: Alex LaGrone
There has been plenty of drama this year for the Chicago "Bad News" Bears. First of all, they are 5-9 and won't make the playoffs. Then you have offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer calling out quarterback Jay Cutler due to his poor play.
Shortly afterwards he called a team meeting and made a teary-eyed apology to his players for criticizing Cutler. People close to Cutler said he was definitely hurt and surprised that Kromer would do something like this.
I would say there isn't any crying in football, but I'm guessing there haven't been a lot of dry eyes in the Soldier Field stands, (home of the Bears), during this forgettable season.
The Detroit Lions will be facing the Bears this weekend to try and win the Division and sew up a playoff spot. The 10-4 Lions, fresh off a 16-14 win over a mediocre 6-8 Minnesota Vikings team, is still struggling on offense.
Lions quarterback, Matthew Stafford, has had his own troubles trying to get the Lions offense in gear. Even though Cutler's stats are better than Stafford's, expect the Bears faithful boo birds to be flying around the stadium.
Thanks to a Green Bay Packers loss to the Buffalo Bills last weekend, the Lions are tied with them for first place and increases the chance for post season play.
