Mack & Hicks "get it" that this is the season to win a Super Bowl. The more I think about it, the more I believe it is now or never. Stuff happens. As Walter Payton used to say, "Tomorrow is promised to no one" and he was right.
LINK Khalil Mack knows. Akiem Hicks knows too. There’s extra urgency and purpose to this Bears season: ‘You don’t always get this chance. So you have to take advantage of it.’
The topic is urgency, and the Bears’ best player is trying to describe exactly how he feels in the team’s quest to chase down a Super Bowl trophy.

LINK NFL Bears star DL Akiem Hicks says he has to ‘kill it right now’
Many believe that the Chicago Bears championship window is just opening, but that isn’t how Akiem Hicks is approaching it, and he knows how important it is that the team wins now. Hicks knows that nothing is guaranteed and just because they had a chance in the playoffs last year, doesn’t mean the same will be true this year.
“You don’t always get this chance,” said Akiem Hicks via Bears Wire. “You don’t get that chance, man. So you have to take advantage of it. And if you get more guys at a young age understanding that, you’ll have a better chance of getting to where you want to go.”
I think the planets are all in their proper alignment for a Lombardi this year IF the team can stay healthy. That is the great hurdle, IMHO.
