Let the debate begin. With the Eagles loss last night the Bears have clinched a first round bye in the playoffs. They still have a shot at the number 1 seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs but it is remote. Should they rest their starters?
I’m going to make a guess here and say that as long as there is something to play for, Lovie Smith won’t do this. The Falcons and the Saints both play at noon. If either of them wins, the Bears have no chance at improving their seed and the backups play most of the contest. Otherwise we may have a legitimate game to watch.
