Kyle Long has his eyes set on the playoffs

SHARE Kyle Long has his eyes set on the playoffs

NFL players are almost confident almost by definition. Ask a player what their goal is at the beginning of a year and they will all say they plan on winning the Super Bowl, no matter how unlikely. However, even the most confident players have to admit when that’s just not going to happen.

No one expected the Bears to reach the playoffs this season, or even be in the race for very long. But sitting at 3-5, Kyle Long has the playoffs in his site. Long told Comcast Sports Net that the team is going to make their run.

“We’re going to make a run at the playoffs, and if anybody doesn’t think that, then get the (expletive) outta here.”

In only his second season, Long is already becoming a leader in the Bears locker room. Long has had his struggles this season after moving to right tackle after being a Pro Bowl right guard.

The Bears are three games back in both the NFC North and wild card races. They haven’t made the playoffs since the 2010-11 season.
