The Bears didn't have a ton of time to celebrate one of their biggest wins in a decade, what with the 84-hour turnaround from the end of the Vikings game to kickoff on Thanksgiving in Detroit. Oh, and they may be without their starting quarterback. Fortunately for Bears fans, our team (Kevin Fishbain, Dan Durkin, Jon Greenberg) is here to teach a Chase Daniel 101 class. What would the Bears offense look like with Daniel? Should the Bears sit Mitch Trubisky? How would it impact the offense if he starts but is limited? Will the defense keep rolling and notch a fifth win in a row? The guys break it all down and make the picks.
