Trying to live with the shame....

If there is anything more humiliating than losing twice to the Packers in one year, it's having to depend on the Packers winning their last game in order for the Bears to make the playoffs. I'm beginning to understand seppuku.

It could be worse. The Bears could lose to the Mouldy Bananas a third time, in the playoffs.  Knocking Green Bay out would at least partially re-establish our self-respect, but not even winning the Super Bowl would completely restore it.

No, I haven't forgotten. The Bears dominated the Phoenix Cardinals Sunday, and thus are in a position to grab an NFC Wild Card birth by defeating Detroit Sunday while the Pack beats Minnesota.

Bear down. I guess.
