Thursday is a huge game for the Bears (5-6) and Lions (7-4).
The Bears stack up well with everyone in the division, writes Laurence Holmes.
The Lions ended their head coaching search Tuesday by hiring Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell to the position.
Jim Caldwell nearly went undefeated as a rookie coach in Indianapolis three years ago and he’s one win away from returning to the Super Bowl as an assistant with Baltimore.
The Indianapolis Colts hired Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano as their new head coach on Wednesday.
The Colts fired Caldwell on Tuesday, the second major decision in what is expected to be a long offseason shake-up.
There is one Sunday left in the NFL season and coaches will be fired within 24 to 72 hours of the last game. Football never stops and if you are not getting better, you are getting worse.
