You know you are having a bad season when the only way to win is to lose. If you’re just joining us, Brad Biggs is referring to the 2016 Chicago Bears. Fans may want to team to lose out for a better draft pick, but that’s not the way coaches and players are wired. “It’s embarrassing when you get a top-five pick,” Pernell McPhee said. “That lets you know how (crappy) you are.” Sunday’s game at Soldier Field will feature teams with a combined win total of three games: the 2-9 Bears vs. the 1-10 49ers (noon, FOX). If the action on the field isn’t piquing your interest, may we suggest looking at the cleats of Sam Acho and Jordan Howard. It’s part of the #MyCauseMyCleats campaign and good job, NFL. Matt Barkley will make his second start at QB; “He’s a very poised kid. Nothing rattled him,” OC Dowell Loggains said of the 26-year-old.

Not included: April 29, his birthday. Send him a card, won’t you?
