The NFC North is 2nd best division in the NFL

If the NFC West isn’t the best division, then it’s the North, with four teams that could all make a playoff run (and one or two with bigger ambitions than that). Predicted Finish Chicago Bears (10-6) (3rd seed; NFC Divisional Round) Detroit Lions (10-6) (6th seed; NFC Wildcard Round) Green Bay Packers (9-7) Minnesota Vikings (7-9) Hit the title/continue reading to read more. . . The Chicago Bears have been a bad luck team in recent years, so they’re due for a little good luck for a change.  They have the talent on offense, with Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte, to put up points.  They boast one of the best defensive secondaries in the NFL.

Romo Chokes Again. This and Other NFL Random Thoughts

Poor Tony Romo.  He has been labeled a choke artist for a long time now and probably nothing short of a Super Bowl will lose that moniker for him.  I’d looked at his numbers in the past and concluded that Romo wasn’t really that much more choke-y than a lot of players, but Sunday’s debacle against the Redskins, in which Romo threw three picks including the one that put the nail in the Cowboys’ coffin will only make the label stick harder in the future. Sorry, Tony, but this time you deserve it.  In the biggest game of the...
