Boy, the lack of a "bounty hunter" system in New Orleans has affected them in the early going more than anyone expected.

It's nice to see that Green Bay is now within the refs "screw-vision" sight. It's not just Detroit and Chicago anymore.

C'mon Hiei....every team gets good and bad breaks from time to time and Chicago gets screwed no more or no less than GB. If you honestly don't believe that, I have to call out your rose-colored, homer glasses.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

NFM: don't forget, I was born in 1988. I have no recollection of glory days' past. I only have from Wannstedt and about 1991 onward. And believe me when I say when things are bad, they're bad. But now that the Packies got screwed in front of a national audience, that makes up for some of it.


Here's to the bears stuffing MJD and hopefully not falling into a trap game, because this certainly has the makings of it.

Understandable.

The packers right now are simply maddening. The way they played last night is the type of team they are capable of being night-in and night-out, yet they fall on their faces in the second half last Sunday against f****** Indy! They're a young team, but a veteran one at that and those types of games shouldn't happen. Then they head to 5-0 Houston last night and embarrass the Texans in front of their home fans. It's so frustrating.

The silver lining is the season is still young enough for them to capture a desirable seed heading into the playoffs. I'm loving the fact that 5 of our last 7 games are divisional, so it will iron itself out so long as they keep their foot on the gas.

The Vikings simply aren't for real and I'll be curious to see what Chicago does in about a month when they start having back-to-back tough matchups. Chicago has proven themselves and I'm curious to see how they handle those tougher teams.

NFM: Get this. The Vikings Schedule after thanksgiving goes like this. @ CHI, @ GB, vs CHI. 3 straight weeks of division matchup.


We get the Madden Curse-atron at home on MNF. Plus Stafford will have to throw into the teeth of the ILLINOIS STATE LOTTERY PICK 6 MACHINE!

I love it! That's more than likely 3 straight losses. However, if things stay the way they are now I'll be looking for a split between CHI & MIN.

That being said, its LGW vs. Hiei tonight! Sorry Hiei, but I'm with LGW for the duration of the day. I don't see the Lions pulling it off, but it should be a fun game.

I don't know if any of you watched the Packers-Rams game yesterday afternoon, but what Aaron Rodgers did on his final TD pass, no one in the world should be able to do. My jaw simply dropped the moment Cobb hauled in that perfect pass. This is the type of stuff that makes him the best QB in the world:

Fast forward to the 2:30 mark.
http://bleacherrepor...ights-and-recap


Here's what a sportscaster had to say about it:

Sort of like the absurd throw Rodgers made to put the game out of reach on Sunday. It's one of the most outrageous throws you will see a human being make … even if there wasn't a defense covering the play. His 39-yard touchdown pass to second-year wide receiver Randall Cobb was like something from a carnival act. The laws of physics shouldn't allow someone to throw ball the way Rodgers did as he was scrambling to his left and was forced to throw against his body.

I won over LGW, but I wasn't very happy about it. Offense DID hog the ball for most of the game and mostly did shut down 81, but I'm not happy about the offense's timing (hopefully only shaking off rust from 15 days off). Not happy about 3 passing plays from 1st and Goal on the DET 2. I'm also not happy about playing most of the 2nd half in a prevent defense. We don't win when we're playing to not lose!!!

That said, LGW should be angrier at their lions. a Fumble on the 1/2 yard line is INEXCUSABLE. Let alone some of Stafford's space cowboy throws.

hahahaha. The vikings just got PANTSED by the Buccaneers. AT HOME.

Given the wayward way we've seen this season go, with the Packers blowing up Houston, and the Giants curbstomping San Fran AT CANDLESTICK, I all of a sudden have a big boost of confidence in my Bears! :)

I love hearing all the analysts referring to the AFC as the Junior Varsity conference. :lol: Classic!

Just look at anyone's power rankings and its beyond hilarious. 6 of the top 7 are all from the NFC. Another classic I read was one guy talking about how he wishes two NFC teams could play for the Super Bowl so it might actually mean something this season. His contention was even though we're only 7 weeks in, there's realistically only 7 teams that have a shot at winning the Super Bowl:

Green Bay
Chicago
Atlanta
NY Giants
San Francisco
Houston
New England (Outside chance)

Just look at the pathetic AFC......only 3 teams with a winning record!

the hell folks? weeks pass and NOTHING in here?


Bears 7-1 to take on the texans tonight at home then go TO CANDLESTICK next week to face the 9ers. If we can take Houston tonight, and glorious of shots, take the 9ers next week, that really clears the door to the division, EVEN IF WE LOSE TO THE PACKIES AGAIN.

After SF:

vs MIN
vs SEA
@ Min
vs GB
@ AZ
@ DET

Let's take care of business tonight vs Houston. GO BEARS!

^ I don't know why this thread has been so quiet. Likely due to the fact that the Lions haven't lived up to expectations this season.

Week 10 will officially go down as the QB-Concussion week. Cutler, Smith and Vick....all down for the count.

The Bears loss is a huge confidence boost to an already confident Packers team. Now all they have to do is hold serve with Chicago the rest of the way and win at Soldier Field. The tie-breaker will go to GB as a result.
