Bears winning today was not part of the script. 

Yea now next week gets really interesting. The Bears strength of schedule is lower then the Gmen so in the case of a 4 or 5 way tie the Bears pick will end up being better then ours. But if the Giants lose out there is a chance their own pick could be top 4 so it'd be the #4 and #8-10. If the Giants win this week I think it will end up being the #7 (Bears) and #8 (Giants)... depending of course on how Seattle, NYJ, Houston, and Carolina fare this week.

Alot of factors still at play but right now I think....it's better for the Bears to win this week? Anyone disagree?

I agree. There’s a bunch of scenarios where Giants winning would be better, but it’s a much greater risk with their high SOS (highest in league). We will lose every single tiebreaker.

Is Barkley a bust?  You watch highlights of his games in 2018 / 2019 and he clearly isn't the same player this year.  He was an ankle breaker early on and now it looks like he refuses to even attempt to cut.

100% he is. That can still change, but right now he isn’t close to what a #2 pick should be consistently.

Exactly.  So looking forward for this season to be over.  Sucks when you look forward to the off season every single year.

So tired of it.  Hurts to be a fan...haha.

This last decade of suck is worse IMHO then the early mid 90's years of suck I had to suffer through. The Dave Brown, Kent Graham, Danny Kanell era. That 1992-1999 era was rough but at least there was a couple of seasons there when they broke out of the suck and made the playoffs and even won the division. And there were pieces on those teams to be optimistic about. 5 straight years of double digit losses...7 out of the last 8 seasons with double digit losses.. man this stretch has really beat me down. Actually looking over their win/loss history this is the worst stretch since 1971-1980 when they had 7 out of 10 double digit loss seasons...

So yea...we've gotten to witness and suffer through the WORST stretch this team has ever had and with very little to be optimistic about.

If you're GM do you pick up his 5th year option for the 7M and give him a prove it year? Or you letting him walk?

Edit nvmd forgot DG already picked up the 5th year

Absolutely would pick it up again. Another year from ACL recovery, and I’ll hope he can regain it.
