Anyone else have horse in this race? (Or had one? wink)

Personally, it's been reported that my Bears will win the division by 100 points or so, so if all goes according to plan, Da Bears will be gracing Texas with their presence come February.

Other than that, looking forward to how the rest of the playoffs unfold.

A shame that Romo's (and then Kitna's) injuries damned the Cowboys in the year we were 'favored to go to the Super Bowl'', but it's been an interesting year for football. Certainly going to be busy here in Dallas come the big game, my family is even looking into renting out our rooms or parking in our driveway to make several thousand dollars for one day of 'prime' space. But we probably won't do that.

Can't believe the Bears have pulled it through this season. So random.

I too am rooting for the Bears... see as how I've been a fan since 8th grade, despite their less than stellar performance in previous years. So yeah, hoping they can pull this one off, especially after today's win... wink

Woohoo! biggrin

Cutler ripping apart their *ahem* 27th ranked *ahem* defense was quite fun and our O-line actually held back the pass rush quite admirably. Everyone seemed to play pretty smart and the D laid some harrrd hits down.

Green Bay vs Chicago for the conference is crazy epic. Will be the first real test of the playoffs for this team. Can't wait.

Can't believe the Bears have pulled it through this season. So random.
Ha, it's been an interesting season for sure. Would not have guessed this outcome at the beginning of the season - spotty O-line, spotty Cutler, and spotty receivers. Thankfully all have improved. They keep finding ways to win and - most importantly - have capitalized on most opportunities given to them thru turnovers, penalties, and injuries.

Sorry bout your Cowboys wink



And what's with this random Bears fan contingent here?! Unexpected. smile Where are you located DVStudio?

I have no idea who the teams are or how this even works, but I thought that crazy touchdown run the other day was awesome so I vote Seahawks.

Heh, yes it was pretty awesome. And this is pretty odd, usually there aren't that many people that are Bears fans... I'm located in NJ, rogolo, so I guess it would seem kinda random, heh. wink

Nerdy, fanboy-ish rant incoming. razz

First... I've got to congratulate the Jets on physically and strategically beating up on my team today. I've been saying for the past two years now (even after convincing wins), that the Patriots need to fire their offensive coordinator, Bill O'Brien. The Patriots obviously have one of the best offenses in the league, led by one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time, who is playing the best football of his career..... yet at times the offense will completely sputter and stall due to unimaginative and downright predictable play-calling. O'Brien's terrible day came to a head late in the game, when he called a run-play in a clear passing situation.... and Belichick could be heard screaming to Brady from the sideline, "Throw it! Throw it!"

Now that my beloved Patriots are out, I've got to root for the Green Bay Packers. I won't support the Bears because I think Jay Cutler is a total douche who clearly doesn't have the same love for the game that most other quarterbacks have. Not to mention he completely lacks the football I.Q. and the invaluable leadership qualities that other top quarterbacks like Brady, Manning, and Brees have. Not to mention he's unbelievably arrogant. And of course, for reasons I don't really need to explain, I'll never root for the New York Jets. razz I'll take the silent, selfless, and humble "Patriot Way" over the loud, obnoxious, trashy style of Rex Ryan and the Jets. All the Jets' trash-talking really put a negative spin on the media's buildup to the game. A few Jets' players crossed the line by using profanity, and even threatening Wes Welker in retaliation for his hilarious press conference (which Bill Belichick actually punished him for).

Anyway, I'm hoping for a Pittsburgh vs. Green Bay Superbowl matchup, with Green Bay winning. I don't want to see Big Ben and the Steelers match the Patriots' three championships in the 2000s. smile

JETS. Not that I care about football at all, but always a New York sports fan. Glad I've got someone to passively support this year. Always enjoy the bowl regardless.

I don't follow football myself, but being fairly close to Seattle, my nephew somewhat excitedly told me that the Seahawks made it to the playoffs with the worst record of any team to ever make it to the playoffs (7 wins, 9 losses I think he said). Which is sort of embarrassingly cool, a rather strange combination.

Does that say more about the other teams on their division than it does about the Seahawks? Anyway, here's hoping they all have fun.

I'm not even sure what sport this is for, but I'd like to reiterate my assertion from last year: if the team names accurately and literally described the teams it would be so much better.

Bears versus Seahawks?

Yes please.

The Sport is American Football, and the Bears owned the Seahawks yesterday. And I hope that the POWN the Packers next Sunday!

A more collected version of my thoughts about the playoffs...

The Bears are absolutely terrible. It's an absolute shame they've even gotten this far. They have a great defense, but that's about it. Yes, they deserved to get into the playoffs, but all they had to do to get into the NFC championship was beat the Seahawks, which even the Lions could have done at home. Their offense is terrible, consisting of (possibly) the worst offensive line in the league, a quarterback who is too loose with the ball (this is coming from a Brett Favre fan), and no serious targets at wide receiver or tight end.

And yes, I'm biased towards the Packers, but just take a look at their team and you can see that even with the 14 season ending injuries to their players, they're just the better team. They have the best blitzing CB in the league in Woodson, the Defensive Player of the Year in Clay Matthews, and a solid (if not pro bowl status) player in every other position. Woodson and Matthews will have a field day with the Bears offensive line. And that's just the Packers defense. Their offense consists of the best up and coming QB in the league, a great receiving corp with Jennings and Driver, a rookie running back that has managed to bring a running game to Green Bay, and a stellar offensive line. It would take a miracle for the Bears to beat a two dimensional team like the Packers.

As for the whole Patriots loss, that was surprising. Usually when the Pats get on a roll like that they're unstoppable. It was nice seeing Tom Brady get sacked here and there, but I'm not much a fan of the Jets, so I wasn't exactly satisfied with the win. Also, did anyone catch this? Brilliance.

Heh, wasn't surprising to me. smile The reason they lost the game is because of offensive coordinator, Bill O'Brien. He's just not consistent. For the past two years, he's called some great games where they'll score thirty, even forty points.... but then there will be days where his playcalling is so predictable and uninspired that the defense knows exactly what is coming. I'm totally serious... I've been saying this for two years now... despite the fact that the Patriots have had one of, if not the best offense in the game. It's not the young, inexperienced defense that's the problem.... Belichick simply needs to hire a new guy to redesign the offense. It's already obviously an impressive offense... that usually works because Brady/Belichick are so good at picking apart a defensive game-plan... but it lacks the explosiveness or general unpredictability that other top offenses (Eagles, Saints, Steelers) have.

Absolutely hilarious. I was listening to the press conference... but I didn't pick up on the foot references until he said.... "good little foot soldiers" or "best foot forward" for like the third time. By the way, it's a lot more impressive in full context, where you can hear... well... the full context and subtlety of the references. smile

I'll bet that even Belichick shared a laugh with Welker behind closed doors... right before he punished him, of course. razz

Football has nearly killed me this season.

First the Texas Longhorns in college division, then the Cowboys. Devastatingly bad, continual losses on both ends. It's been difficult to even listen to any football discussion in the past 9 months. So embarrassing from what both teams started off as.

Next season we'll see what happens. I'm so done with this one.

As long as the Steelers don't make it to the super bowl... I've hated the steelers ever since they stole the Super Bowl from Seattle (my team) in 2006... So as long as they don't make it, then I'm happy.

I've been a die hard Steelers fan since the 70s. I was hoping for a Steelers/Seahawks rematch, but since that isn't going to happen, I don't care who the Steelers would play if they beat the Jets this weekend, although Chicago would probably be less of a challenge in the big game.
