Yesterday, following the Bears-Redskins game on WGN AM 720, they had their post game show featuring 3 dumb jocks. One of them said, "Just 3 more games to the end of the regular season and the Bears will enter the playoffs." This was a most baffling statement given how the Bears are 5-8 and even if they were to be undefeated for the rest of the season, it is difficult at best to envision them making the playoffs given how poorly they have been playing lately.

How is it possible that such idiots can having paying jobs on radio when there are so many knowledgeable fans out there who would be willing to do that kid of work for less money?

It's not likely, but considering the lame standings of the NFC East division - the top two teams at 6-7, and the only other teams with winning records, The Seahawks and Vikings at 8-5, a wild card berth is arguably possible for a team as hapless as the Bears if they win all three games and end 8-8. They are still in the conversation, albeit barely.

Yes, it has never happened that I remember, but it's remotely possible to win a division with a losing record.
