Chicago Bears: Virigina McCaskey
"Just a smile here and there for me," Smith said.
It's safe to say Smith left the real "celebrating" up to the players, who only had a walk-thru on Wednesday and are scheduled to practice for the first time Thursday in preparation to face the New York Jets (10-4) on Sunday at Soldier Field.
"It was good to see the players with their [championship] caps on the other night," Smith said. "It was good to see Mrs. [Virginia] McCaskey wear her hat the other night. Besides that, we realize what we've done, but there is just too much more work to do."
The Bears are currently the No. 2 seed in the NFC and own the tie-breaker over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Jets can clinch an AFC playoff berth with a win in Chicago, or a loss by either Jacksonville or Indianapolis.
