    Dallas can be really good. That game can go either way IMO.

    Ya Dal and Det have a ton of similarities in that they can be really good, but also lose very winnable games.

    I have high standards. I only have respect for the best teams: Broncos, Seahawks, Patriots, etc.

    Dallas has a HO-HO-HORRIBLE defense, in every sense of the word. They're "okay" on offense, but if we get Jay back to play against them, there's a VERY good chance Cutler carves their secondary like Leatherface does with his pumpkins. Not to mention, their run defense is almost as bad as ours.

    True Dat. I love that the Cowboys have a Redskins fan as their GM/Owner.

    If you had such high standards you wouldn't have that sight as your name; it's as awful as the Minnisota's qb's. Try harder lil troll try harder.

    But don't ya just love it? IIRC, with another 8-8 season this year, they would be something like 137-137 since the mid 90s.

    I am actually a little surprised. When you are good at business, you typically have already learned your own limitations and you go and get the best money can buy to do the tasks that you are not good at. However, his ego is even larger than his business acumen.

    Of course, the 2013 Bears could lose that game, but I don't expect it. Their defense is as bad as ours,and if it's close at the end, Romo will choke.

    Remember, that what they say about Cutler - if it's close he will throw a pick.

    I just think it will be close. And yeah, I also think we win.

    How many years have we said "if so and so lose we are in" and how many years have we come up short..I'm getting pissed off that we have to rely on other teams to lose to get in...we should be winning the division FFS

    I agree it would be nice to control our own destiny. To a point, I think we do. If we win, we're in. Still. Also, it's always going to be the case that we need to have the other division foes lose more games than us. Nothing shameful about hoping we do that with our remaining season.

    Hardly anyone thought we'd win the division this first season with all the new players/coaches. Many predicted an 8-8 even before the injuries. The good thing is that we are a team on the way up. If we do get to the playoffs this season (and I think we have a decent shot) that's just icing on the cake. We are at least a season away from a strong post-season run (not just a one-and-done post season). We're going to be okay Adibear. There is finally hope for something better in Chicago.

    yeah... actually a good point. It was that way last year and we came up short. And it will be like that this year, hopefully with a different ending. I thought we might have been doing a little better this year. I certainly did not expect to get swept by the Lions, but then again I didn't expect the D to play dead.

    The arrow is pointing up. I really do think we will be able to drive our own destiny soon. I thought it would be next year(still might), but I did not expect the needs to grow into most of the D in addition to our previous needs. But honestly, even with more needs that we have had in the past, I still think that we will end up with less needs than if we only had a few needs under Angelo. Emery goes after it and does a much better job in that respect.

    But on the other hand, we could still sweep the Packers. Everyone thought I was nuts when I suggested that (of course I was, but that's another story).

    I say we don't because Rogers will beat us, and I'll also say I hope you win this bet.
