Only time will tell, but again, I think the Bears will have a newfound energy now that they have a franchise QB (their first since what, 1985)?

Yes, the defense has struggled as of late but they're still pretty darn good against the run and causing takeaways.  I think they have to start re-tooling but for this year, I think they can get the job done with regard to winning the division.

I didn't even click the link, but yes he is an idiot.

I think the nickname thing is pretty funny.  The guy has talent, but he's always been more about entertainment than professional sports.  I don't get why the league doesn't just let him have the space between names - what a dumb thing to argue about on their behalf.  :P

JJ...care to comment on TO, er uh Harrison's theory that the President might have invited the Cardinals if they had won?

I realize he didn't go the last time they won either, but to be upset they don't get an Annual "Field Trip" to the White House really struck me as funny.

On the Kornheiser news... PRAISE BE to the Football Dieties...Monday Night Football might be tolerable now.

I have no clue what he was trying to say/accomplish, honestly.  He's against going for one reason or another.  I think he's aware whoever wins gets to go, and that he's just not voicing what his gripe is very well...

I'm glad he's not going if he's so against it though...  To each their own.  I'd go.  :-\ 

Nobody said football players were all the brightest bulbs though, hah.  Hell, Terry Bradshaw's intelligence is routinely the punchline of many jokes.

I read in the current edition of "The Onion" that the Packers are signing Fran Tarkenton to a contract to get back at the Vikings. I thought that was pretty hilarious.

Ok...I am officially scared, Jerry Jones has said the Cowboy's will not sign Mike Vick...that means he will be wearing the Star by next week.  I am getting a map out to pick a new team if that happens.

Having lived in D/FW my whole life, I will need to get an "exception" to my required rooting teams.  Do I have to pick a team from the same state?

Houston could finally be good this year if feel you have to stay in state Paul. Plus they are AFC. My favorite team is of course the Denver Broncos, but my other/second favorite team is Carolina, who is in the NFC so it works out for me.

The Cowboys went out of their way to drop all their baggage this year.  Pacman, Tank, and T.O. all got sent elsewhere.

No chance in hell they undo all that progress by signing the one guy I can think of that's a bigger headache than all three of the guys they cut combined.

Ouch.  Though I hear some Favre guy might be available, just in case.
