The last good head coach Houston had was back when Bum Phillips coached the Oilers.

I heard a few hours ago that Robbie Gould is a free agent. I wonder if he would want to come back to the Bears.

Go Pats!

The only thing I dislike about the playoffs, is that it means only 4 weeks of football remain.

Fingers crossed. He's already a legend in Bears history (the leading all-time scorer) and the script would be like a hero's homecoming.

But sadly, my gut is the Bears won't sign him as if so Ryan Pace would have to swallow his pride and admit he was wrong in letting Gould go in the first place.

Hope that I'm wrong.

I read that the 49ers have exclusive rights to negotiate with Robbie Gould until March 11th. After that, he's an unrestricted free agent.

My crystal ball sees a tale of two cities.

1) Ryan Pace has enough courage to admit he made a mistake and resign Robbie Gould and all most is forgiven. Pace has a chance of redemption

2) Bears stubbornly say they are going to stick with Parkey, he continues to struggle and the Bears with a bad kicker and other holes (like a coach that doesn't value a running game) and a regime change in 2-3 years.

Just heard that Denver hired Bears DC Vic Fangio as their new head coach. Great for Denver. Very bad for Chicago.

The price of a successful season as for Chicago.

That is what makes the Parkey miss so much more painful. An opportunity to go deep in the playoffs years following is not guaranteed at all. Parity in the NFL .

I was going to try to squeeze shoveling our driveway between todays games. But at the rate New England is currently beating up on Los Angeles, I may start shoveling before halftime.

I knew going into the playoffs the Chargers would flop. Phillip Rivers ... great stats during the year. Come playoff time he is a different QB .

Rivers doesn't seem to be the main issue; the Chargers defense has been a no-show so far, and their offensive line looks suspect.

Wow, halftime now. I don’t want the game to finish 70-14, but hopefully the Pats can protect their comfortable lead. The Chargers look demoralized, good for Pats fans.

I afraid of the Chiefs, fortunately the Pats aren’t...

The time between the Superbowl and college basketball Sweet Sixteen is the worst of the year for me. Nothing good to watch and very bad weather.
