The national weather service has issued a falling bird warning for Chicago this Sunday starting at 12:00 and continuing until approx 3pm CT.

Falling Seahawks could be heavy at times especially around the Soldier Field area. Heavy accumulation is likely!

It's an epidemic... striking birds all over the place...

Ravens found going down... but they went down with a fight...

Falcons are crashing into their own nests...

Weather people and specialists can't understand what is going on, the fear now is that Seahawks may rise and defend the strength of birds accross the nation....

In this post, pretend the horse is a bird......

First up........Eagles- :beatdeadhorse:

Then...........Falcons- :beatdeadhorse:

Next up.......Seahawks- :beatdeadhorse:

Sorry Earl....Bears hibernate in winter....remember two weeks ago?

Since the Pack already shutout the Jets this year and nearly beat the Patriots at their house with a second string QB.....I like our chances.

It was nice to finally relax during a game and see my team pull out a can of whoop-@** on the national stage!

No doubt, they played twice and split. Things would be wild in these parts. :lol:

My guess is that "wild" would be a gross understatement... :D

Doesn't look like you'll need to make that decision, at least this week.

Seattle certainly hasn't shown up today. I like the idea of a Bears/Packers game but sorry Earl, GO PACK!

The Pack will need all the help they can get.... BEARS!!!!!


What is the over-under, that next week's game has higher TV Raitings then the SuperBowl itself?
