Jared Allen bizarrely claims Chicago Bears still have a chance

The Chicago Bears are terrible right now. In fact, they are historically terrible. In conceding 55 points to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers this weekend, they became the first team since the 1923 Rochester Jeffersons to concede over 50 points in back to back games.

Things are going woefully at Soldier Field, with fans calling for the heads of everyone they can think of, with head coach Marc Trestman currently at the front of the pile to go. Fans are even burning Jay Cutler jerseys in disgust.

The whole city of Chicago seems down right now and is desperately looking for an answer to the team's woes. Everyone that is, except Jared Allen, who for some reason believes everything's alright in Chi-Town.

Playoff Delusions

Maybe Allen has gone a bit insane after coming down with pneumonia a few weeks ago, but the former Vikings defensive end wants everyone to calm down and to know that the Bears can somehow turn this mess of a season around.

“It’s tough,” Allen said, via Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “Obviously, it’s not what you foresee. Obviously, I came to Chicago for a reason. I thought we had all the pieces, and we still do. We just have to be consistent. But you know what, we’re still not out of this."

Out of It

The Bears are currently 3-6 in the NFC North, three wins behind a Green Bay team that has already ripped them apart twice this season and looks like it could be a genuine NFC Championship contender.

The Bears still have to face a very tough Detroit Lions side twice in their final seven games of the season, and they will also be playing host to the Dallas Cowboys, a challenger in their own right behind an unstoppable run game.

Chicago's season is dead in the water, with a huge clear-out needed come the off-season. Someone should probably let Jared Allen know before he embarrasses himself again.
