Win and they clinch the NFC North. That was the situation for the Bears heading into Sunday night's game at Philadelphia after both Green Bay and Detroit lost earlier in the day. The message must not have gotten to their locker room, though, because the Bears looked downright awful in a 54-11 blowout loss. That means the winner of Sunday's season finale against Green Bay at Soldier Field is going to the playoffs. But before we can look ahead, let's take a look back at the Bears' "performance" against the Eagles.

The most frustrating part of watching Bears games this season comes when they're on defense, a 180 from every year in recorded history. More specifically, the weak spot is the very center of the defense. Season-ending injuries to tackles Henry Melton and Nate Collins AND middle linebacker D.J. Williams plus underperformance from 2012 1st-round pick Shea McClellin mean the shortest route to the end zone for opponents is right up the gut. On Thursday we saw Brandon Jacobs - a man who was expected to play in as many NFL games this year as RedEye's mascot, Whizzer - barrel for over 100 yards...

I usually wait until New Year's Day to make my resolutions, but hey, we just survived the Mayan apocalypse, so why wait? Here's my 2013 checklist. > > Wear ear protection next time I watch "Magic Mike" with my wife and her girlfriends. > > Start a "Bring Ozzie back to the South Side" meme. > > Return all the "Fifty Shades of Grey" toys I, uh, accidentally purchased. > > Stop "liking" lottery-winner hoaxes on Facebook. > > Don't take the bet on the Cubs losing fewer than 100 games.

So, some doofus at City Hall actually scheduled a NATO summit the same weekend the Cubs are hosting the White Sox. No worries for me. I was planning a weekend of protests anyway. Mine, however, were relegated to more important issues regarding baseball in Chicago. Here's a brief rundown of this weekend's events. All times are CST and approximate, and may in fact never happen. We'll see. Friday 9 a.m., Clark and Addison: Protesting the fact the Cubs can't hold a lead.

Two days before the Bears pooped themselves on national TV, a reporter at Halas Hall told Jay Cutler that if he targeted Brandon Marshall as many times per game as he did in Week 1, he would throw to Marshall 240 times. Could he do such a thing? Cutler wasn't sure. But he knew he completed nine of those passes, and that seemed feasible. "What's 9 times 16?" Cutler asked the media. Silence. And more silence. Not one person could answer the question. I myself multiplied 16 by 10 in my head and then subtracted 9, and then I decided that was inaccurate and I had done...

So many superlatives have been heaped on Denver quarterback Tim Tebow that he seems almost godlike. He certainly finds ways to win - often in thrilling fashion. As for the Bears, well, they needed a victory Sunday by any means possible. Yet they did not get their wish, and now their playoff hopes might need divine intervention. Here's who looked heavenly and who was hellish against the Broncos.   FIRST QUARTER Heavenly: Charles Tillman made a leaping - and dare we say, miraculous?

With two backup quarterbacks starting, Monday night's Bears-49ers game wasn't the showdown people anticipated when the season kicked off. Still, somebody had to win, and the result very well could decide who grabs the top seed in the NFC a few months from now. Here's how the Bears' Jason Campbell and San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick shaped the outcome.   FIRST QUARTER Campbell: Where have we seen this before? Campbell looked very Cutler-like in getting sacked on his first pass play of the game and completed just one throw in the quarter.

Daylight saving time ended this weekend, which leaves us bracing for four months of early sunsets. The Bears are also entering their own traditional period of darkness, which this year involves a groin injury to Jay Cutler and a still-aging and still-injured defense that despite a bye week is still old and still hurt. We understand that periods of bone-deep malaise are a part of any Bears season. Last year gave us the Jason Campbell Monday night game in San Francisco, when a porous Bears offensive line coughed up five and a half sacks to an out-of-his-mind Aldon Smith, and as a result...
