    If you picked KC or Indy and are NOT a fan, go invest or buy a lottery ticket right now! :)

    I thought Denver did pretty good except for a couple of really bad turnovers.. I did not think they would win today, but they did compete well for a while.

    And the news for Bears fans just keeps getting worse. Their top receiver Johnny Knox is out for the season and his career is in jeopardy after an ugly hit that almost literally snapped his back backward. He is scheduled to undergo surgery tomorrow to stabilize vertebrae in his lower spine. He was lucky to not have been paralyzed.

    Seeing the replay will absolutely make one cringe in horror.

    I sure hope he comes out of the surgery ok and can live a normal life. I was sick to my stomach when I saw that.

    Very scary hit indeed.

    I don't want that to happen to any player...even a Chicago Bear.

    I didn't watch the game, and turned the radio on late.... Just read the article about Knox.... My gosh, in believable. I do hope he recovers from the surgery and will be able to have a fruitful and enjoyable life... And as a bonus to I'm, he can continue playing the game.

    As for the Bears... Rewind the clock 5 weeks ago. Big win... Bears are now 7-3, arguable in the top 5 teams in the entire NFL. The first reports of Cutler start to come in.... Then bad loss to Oakland. embarrassing loss to KC. Forte out, offensive line losses another starter. Soul crushing loss to Tebow. Drug bust on the Federal level. And now today's just pitiful, no heart performance... And a broken back for Johnny Knox.

    Next week Primetime against the Packers who are out to reprove they are the best team in the league.... My gosh... This has to Boone of the most epic collapses and changes to a season in all professional sports.

    Just await on YouTube... And honestly sick to my stomach... How he is going to be okay, I don't know. Makes the Theisman injury look like he just needed a band-aid

    Packers lost a lot of their starters too, couple more today I think.

    One backup (rookie) lineman by the looks of things.
    Ain't gonna happen.

    And you'll be nowhere to be found when they don't even reach the Super Bowl.

    Unlike Pittsburgh, the Jets' performance doesn't indicate they will.

    The Packers convinced me tonight that despite Rodgers being clearly the best QB in the NFL right now, the Saints are the best team.

    I have a feeling your theory will be tested before the season is over...

    How so?

    I see the Saints and the Packers as very similar teams... Strong offenses, weak defenses.

    I am honestly leaning to either San Francisco or Pittsburgh as the best teams... With both sides of the ball complementing each other.

    I see Pittsburgh coming out of the AFC again as long as they don't have to play the Ravens and Roethlisberger gets healthy.

    For the NFC I am thinking either Green Bay or the 49ers.

    I am thinking the Saints have the same offensive firepower as Green Bay, but NO has a better overall defense.

    So if it gets to be a shootout, I think NO will edge out GB.

    As for the 49ers... I think they are just that enough streaky....

    NO in the SuperBowl, against NE
