Chicago Bears wide receiver Josh Bellamy was speaking for all of us when he sent this tweet while watching last night’s NFC Divisional Round playoff matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys.

After spending last night watching the team the Bears would have played had they won on Wild-Card Weekend, Bellamy and friends are stuck watching the team that sent them packing for the offseason.
Yeah, I can see why you’d want to stay away from this slate of games. But they should provide some Sunday afternoon entertainment. Besides, watching playoff football without being stressed or emotionally attached to the outcome can be fun.
