    Couple of critical games today. The winners of Packers at Bears and Eagles at Cowboys win their respective divisions.

    Cowboys won't go very far with Orton at quarterback if they somehow pull out a victory. The Eagles look like they could do real damage in the playoffs.

    Rodgers is back in the starting lineup for the Packers. With Rodgers leading the offense once again, they could also pose a challenge to the NFC if they earn a playoff berth.

    Saints have an outside shot at missing the playoffs if they lose and the Cardinals win. Cardinals are more white friendly than the Saints despite having no white defensive starters.

    The every AFC division champ is locked up. Their games today are important only for seeding purposes. The only spot up for grabs is the second Wild Card slot. The Dolphins are favored to clinch that spot according to Playoff Status ( http://playoffstatus.com/nfl/afcstandings.html).

    It's just more TNB! Many blacks do it to try and prop up their self esteem. Any rational human being would look at these thugs as exactly what they are, pathetic, childish losers. The DWF's aren't rational though.

    Hartline goes over a 1,000 yards on the season.

    So far Cam Newton is 1 of 7 for 8 yards and an interception. He's totally the reason the Panthers are in the playoffs. His Pro Bowl selection is entirely legit.

    Commentators excuse for Geno Smith sucking is essentially the pressure to pass and not being able to run because he is too focused on the pressure of being like a QB.

    Jared Allen having a good game against the Lions. Sack, near interception and was in as a TE and should have had a TD catch if the pass was any good. The broadcasters are blathering on about it possibly being his last game as a Viking. His contract is up and he wants to go to a Super Bowl Contender. Gee Denver or New England would be nice!!!

    Packers could win this game today, but they have no dominating defense. The D relies seemingly on the notion that their O can score, and if the O gets on track then the D will make plays. That is good against other mediocrities but won't do much against the better teams, see the Pittsburgh game for proof they are little better than average mediocre this year. I'll put last week's game on Flynn, he carried the ball that one time like it was a loaf of bread and made Chunky Polyboy look good. So my prediction worth exactly one shekel is that the Pack wins today makes it past the wild card round and gets trounced by a team that plays both sides of the ball. With no Clay they only have Hawk to be consistently in the game.

    Allen is the record holder for sacks in a season, I could care less about the official record. I actually watched the play that Favre gave up a sack o Strahan and Favre should have been run out of the league that day. (FTR I'm a Pack fan). That the media gimps and other sniffers pretend otherwise is a utter joke.

    yeah, lots of players made it who didn't deserve it. I wonder who the captains will be....because they aren't going by nfc vs afc, they are having captains drafting players or something like that. Maybe the coaches decide? I don't remember I'll have to look it up if no one else knows. It will be funny to see who goes last.

    Pro Bowl the popularity contest, and maybe it should be, but it can be a bit of a joke. Like the one time I watched the skills contest day and they had Peyton and Vick on the same segment of an accuracy and speed drill combo. I'll bet Vick was cursing his luck because he looked like crap, with the white cheerleaders cheering on the competition behind them in the camera view and one of them could have been plucked out of line given some footballs and looked more like a QB than puppy strangler. If Peyton missed a throw it was commented on, if Vick made a throw it was commented on, it was that bad.

    Andre Brown fumbled in the first quarter and Hillis has been in ever since.

    There's something truly nauseating and pathetic about seeing kids in the stance wearing sCam jerseys cheering for the obnoxious ebonics talking afleet.

    Scam usually has at least 5 secs to find an open receiver in the pocket. Just imagine what a good QB could do with kind of protection.

    Who would have guessed that Andy Dalton would be the one putting the Chargers' playoff chances in jeopardy? Come on, Bengals.

    Kris Durham has been shut out of the Lions offense recently, especially disappointing since Calvin Johnson has been inactive and in the past that opened up opportunities for him.

    Maybe he's not getting open but the last game I was at he was wide open several times. And when Stafford does target him it is usually one of Staffords widely innacurate throws.

    Probably the end of Durhams time in Detroit but I thought that at the end of last season too, might depend on the coaching change if there is one.

    I'm tired of commentators not criticising receivers for not battling for balls to prevent interceptions.

    If the receiver catches it, they praise them for battling, and when it gets intercepted and they don't prevent it, they blame the QB.
