I rate the Bears as a playoff team because:Bwen wrote: ↑Mon Oct 19, 2020 3:37 pm Yer Man; Do you rate the Bears that highly? Or are you just basing that off their fixtures?
My own opinion is that they're Steelers light. Mainly rely on their defence but don't have even a third of the firepower of Steelers in offence. On the other hand they are winning games. Their two games against Packers have become a whole lot more interesting after last night.
a) half the league is a bit shite and they're not
b) their defence is playing really well and their offence is good enough to win four to five more games and make the playoffs.
I'd say that any playoff team from the NFC West would beat them (also Buccs & Packers) so they will be one-and-done.
As you say, they are winning games (Trubisky won all three starts, even if he only finished two of them!) and you can't take away those wins.
