NFL Divisional Playoffs: Bears jealousy of all 8 remaining teams

SMG Logo By Nick Shepkowski of SMG | Slide 1 of 8: As much love as the "Andy Reid Tree" gets for turning out the head coaching talent around the NFL seemingly year after year, it'd be a lot cooler for the Bears to have Andy Reid himself instead of a branch of his that only appears to be deteriorating more and more by the year. It'd be easy to fill this one in with the best player in the NFL in Patrick Mahomes but how different would the last eight years be for the Bears had they hired Andy Reid as their head coach in 2013 instead of Marc Trestman? In 22 years of being an NFL head coach, the man has led his teams to the post-season 16 times - sometimes with elite quarterback play, sometimes with good but far from great quarterback play, and others with play at the position that was average at best. In case you're wondering since Reid entered the league as a head coach in 1999 the Bears have participated after Week 17 five times.
