Well over 3/4 of the season is done now. Still a lot of football to go but I'm sticking with the Cowboys (3 games remaining) and the Broncos (4 games remaining)

Just because they kicked the hell out of the Bears doesn't mean much. The road to the SB will go through Lambeau Field.

Would love to see Cowboys play Packers at Lambeau Field for Conference title.

No stretch at all, in fact that looks pretty likely as of right now.

Bears are still alive. (Barely ) Heck, I read that Tampa Bay was still alive before the start of todays games and they where 2 and 10.

Yeah, mathematically the Bears are still alive. But I say the chance of them losing the rest of their games is better than them making the playoffs.

Since Bears management has been approaching things as business as usual and no firings yet, my plan is to boycott the next game and just not watch it. I've got better ways to spend 3 hours on a Monday night.

Agreed, I don't think they'll make the payoffs either. Stranger things have happened but I doubt this will be one of them.

I'll probably still watch them when they play on Monday night since I'm a Saints fan. And the Saints need all the wins they can get (plus a few).

I might though, give into temptation and watch the Bears get booed

But, this is a wasted season.

That would be nice, but remember it's December, and the Cowboys are perrenial failures at this time of year.

Seahawks beat the Eagles, SF lost to the "lowly" Oakland Raiders, but Arizona won a squeaker to stay atop the NFC West. But the Cards have only a few days to prep for St. Louis Thursday night. Go Rams!

After watching the Seahawks dominate the Eagles yesterday in Philly. I think the Packers should worry that the Seahawks are back to form and when they beat SF next week. Watch out Packers........

Most likely......And depending on where the games are played it will determine the Superbowl pairing.
