SAN FRANCISCO - AUGUST 22: San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis #85, San Francisco 49ers center Eric Heitmann #66, San Francisco 49ers guard Chilo Rachal #62 and San Francisco 49ers guard Adam Snyder #68 run out onto the field in to start the game as the San Francisco 49ers host the Oakland Raiders at Candlestick Park August 22, 2009 in San Francisco, California.

Chilo Rachal has waved goodbye to the Bears, should we be waving goodbye to the Bears season? It was all going according to plan just 20 short days ago. The Bears held a 7-1 record, tops in the NFC North by a long shot, and were coming off of an astounding display of dominance over the Tennessee Titans. The defense was being praised by the national media as one of the elite units in the league, and the offense was slowly but surly rounding into form.   Or so we thought. Fast forward about 3 weeks.   If you didn’t know any better and you saw the way most Bears fans have been hanging their heads lately, you’d assume the Bears would have a record worthy of a basement dwelling position in their division.   That’s obviously not the case, as the Bears stand at 7-3 and still hold a share of the NFC North lead with the Green Bay Packers. But with the injury bug biting harder than usual, and with the offense in complete disarray, the fate of the Bears season may very well rest in the outcome...
