You know what would be really cool? For the Chicago tie to the Super Bowl to be that the Bears would be in it.
You know what’s not really cool? Reality.
The Bears are on the outside looking in. Instead of preparing for an epic battle in New Orleans, most players are probably busy handing out Super Bowl party invites.
And even though some of those players are living it up in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl festivities, at the end of the day, no one really gives a rat’s ass about the Pro Bowl.
That’s actually a proven scientific fact. Google it.
Anyways, the moral of this story is that instead of being in the brightest spotlight the sport has to offer on Super Bowl Sunday, the Bears and their fan base will once again be forced to watch begrudgingly.
Hopefully there are at least a few good commercials to provide comic relief.
All the players and the fans can do now is hope that Phil Emery and Marc Trestman have enough up their sleeves to change the scenario in 12 month’s time.

Jim Harbaugh has worn a red sharpie around his neck for the last two years. But, first things first.
“I take offense at you calling it a necklace. It’s a whistle,” Harbaugh said on Monday. “A coach should go to practice with a whistle and I just clip a pen on it. It’s really not complicated at all.”
Now that we got that covered the next logical question would be the reason...
There are often some gems to be unearthed from coach Jim Harbaugh's press conferences. One occurred last week when a reporter asked him about potential off-field rules for his players for Super Bowl week. When Harbaugh said, "Yeah, we'll have a schedule. We'll have rules." When asked whether he would share those rules with the media, Harbaugh said, "...
Jim Harbaugh stepped to the podium, smirked a bit, and greeted his first news conference as a Super Bowl coach. ''We're super happy to be here,'' he said Sunday night as his NFC champion San Francisco 49ers arrived in the Big Easy for the big game. ''I think this team has the best focus on unity and winning I've ever been a part of.''
Scott Kacsmar’s prediction of 10 wins for the 49ers did not work out, but his reasoning did. Find out what drives Jim Harbaugh’s success, and how San Francisco became more title-ready in 2012.
So, you say you’re not really into this year’s Super Bowl, and that you’re just kind of using it as an excuse for a Sunday Funday? You think that you’d rather drink some beers and watch the Beyoncé half time show than marvel at Colin Kaepernick’s ability to throw the deep ball? Well, then just do what others have done to enjoy The Wizard of Oz, Presidential Debates...
Just in case you were unaware, John Harbaugh and Jim Harbaugh are brothers. They are also the head coaches for the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, respectively. Their teams are going to play one another on February 3, 2013 in Super Bowl 47. Until then, we are going to provide you with some stupid piece of information about them to keep you up-to-date. ‘Fact’ of the...
With seven days and counting to the Super Bowl, you have heard and will indisputably hear much more of all the “Brother vs. Brother” commentary, as San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh goes up against Baltimore Ravens coach and older brother John Harbaugh.
But in Super Bowl XLVII, there are many more storylines to watch out for than just a sibling match-up.
With 6:57 showing on local clocks Sunday, the National Football Conference champion San Francisco 49ers made a nationally televised touchdown at Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans and deplaned at the west cargo ramp to begin a week of preparation for their Super Bowl XLVII battle against the Baltimore Ravens on Feb. 3. Their arrival was as casual as quarterback...
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will almost certainly be asked 100 million times about his ability as a running quarterback, but 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh would like everyone to remember that Kaep isn't just "a read-option quarterback., Will Brinson of CBS Sports reports.
First of all, I wouldn't categorize Colin as a read-option quarterback, for starters,"...
SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has a long history of seeking advice from people he deems great. If Harbaugh thinks he can become a better coach - or person - from a conversation, he has it. After accepting the head coaching job at Stanford in 2007, Harbaugh made a point to have frequent chats with the late Bill Walsh. As Harbaugh tells it, he would...
Super Bowl XLVII will be one to remember when the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens square off at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Feb. 3. The Superdome has hosted more Super Bowls than any other venue, and will now hold the distinction of featuring the first-ever Super Bowl with brothers (John and Jim Harbaugh) as opposing head coaches. See the trends in ticket...
NEW ORLEANS -- San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh doesn't seem particularly worried about outside linebacker Aldon Smith's sack drought heading in Super Bowl XLVII. Smith finished second in the NFL behind Houston's J.J. Watt with 19.5 sacks during the regular season, but hasn't logged one since Week 14. Part of his failure to get to the quarterback could be...
Once the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Denver Broncos and the possibility of a Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady AFC Championship was eliminated, the next best option for the Super Bowl immediately became a Baltimore-San Francisco match-up. In the AFC Championships second half Joe Flacco looked very Tom Brady-esque. Anquan Boldin shed years off his [...]
