...

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


The SB's ratings will blow away the NFC title game ratings...by a lot...guaranteed.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

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

WOW - the Bears beat a 7-9 team after a week off and the PACK crushed the #1 seed 13-3 team with no extra rest...hardly equals.

I bet the midwest TV ratings are through the (frozen) roof. :D

Last time I checked... both games ended up with the rights to play in the NFC championship.

Oh... and umm.. the PACK played in a DOME yesterday, hardly equal to sub-freezing temps today.

(Take a way the pick-6 at the end of the 1st half, and that game last night could have been completely different... The Domination came out of despiration in the second half by Atlanta... Just like the Seahawks took advanage of a prevent defence at the end of today's game)

<lifted from a friend's facebook>

Bears fan, a Packers fan and a Seahawks fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves his team more. The Seahawks fan insists that he is the most loyal. "This is for the Seahawks!" He yells, and jumps off the side of the mountain. Not to be outdone, the Bears fan is next to profess his love for his team. He yells, "this is for the Bears!" and pushes the Packers fan off the mountain...GO BEARS

Apparently much, much better than the one in Solider Field, better known as the rock-hard parking lot of the NFL. ;)

Let's see...Thump the Giants the 2nd last week in New York...then crush the Bears (#1 squad) in Chicago the final game, then beat the Eagles in Philly, then beat the Falcons in Atlanta....

Next week looks like a picnic in comparison. :D:lol:

If that was the definition of "crush", no wonder you are pumping the kool-aid so much... :)

The indeed did crush the Bears in Chicago, since Lovelost...uh....Lovie Smith playing his full squad the whole game, just out of spite in a meaningless game to them.

That made the thumping all the sweeter...Cutler spent more time on the ground than the ball did.... :grin:

The Bears going any further in the playoffs would be a travesty equal to the Seahawks being in the playoffs in the first place.

Guess Mrs HDTVfan (Chicago-born) is gonna have to watch the game somewhere else...

Get the feeling there might be some "fun" next week? :lol:

Shipwrecked

A Packers fan, a Bears fan, and a Vikings fan get shipwrecked on an island and some natives take them to their king.

At first, the king plans to execute them, then, he decides to grant them one wish, twenty lashes on the back, and let them go.

The Vikings fan wishes for a pillow strapped to his back. It doesn’t hold well during the whipping and broke after 5 whips, leaving 15 painful marks on his back.

The Bears fan wishes for 2 pillows. It lasts for ten whips and he ended up screaming in pain.

When it was the Packer's fan’s turn though, a smile came across his face.

“I wish for 300 whips,” the king thought the Packers fan was being very brave and noble, so he gave him another wish. “I wish the Bears fan strapped to my back!”

...and only one more week to game time... !rolling

Last time I checked that Bears game was played in Green Bay the last game of the season. When they played in Chicago, the only thing the Packers won was penalties assessed.

Yup...and even the frozen tundra has heating coils to avoid the disgrace of a place called Soldier Field from those rock-hard sidelines. Even the national announcers cited it twice during the game...guess the Bears need every trick in the book to pull out wins... :lol:

Soldier Field is a disgrace as far as field conditions. They need to field -turf, badly.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Forecast for Sunday is around 22 and partly cloudy. If we play similar to last Saturday.....the Bears don't have a chance....and no I'm not biased. :)

The NFL has sent several officials to Soldier Field to monitor playing conditions there for the upcoming Divisional Championship game.

No joke.

There is a genuine concern about how bad they were this past week, and they do want a repeat of any injuries amplified by rock-hard sidelines of turf that is cited as marginal.

Not so sure...

Last week...Charles Tillman's activities (in particular) and a few other Bears were zealously protected by the Zebras. :D
