Game #15 - Detroit Lions (2-12-0) vs Chicago Bears (12-2-0) - Open Thread

New, comments
The final game at Ford Field for 2006 is here, and it takes on a new twist. The Lions welcome the top NFC team that has clinched everything possible at this point. Although a game like this would attract fans to come and see, a walkout has been planned to rebel against management.

One of the only reasons I'll bother to watch this game, other than the fact that I need to in order to write up a recap, is to see if the walkout is successful. At the 8:57 mark in the second quarter, turn your TV on to FOX as they'll undoubtedly mention it.

Aside from the Lions, have a Merry Christmas tomorrow and here's to hoping the number one draft pick doesn't get screwed up. Oakland did lose again last night, so Detroit has to lose to keep pace.
