    Marc Sessler says the Bears will lose to the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game. We need to get payback against the Seahawks for the loss we had against them in Chicago.

    Sessler is either kissing ass, or not looking at how strong the NFC is. We might not be the 2nd best team in the Norse, let alone the entire conference.

    The best team does not always win the game.

    How many times has the 1 or 2 seed failed to make the Super Bowl? More than I can remember

    Gotta get there to have that chance, and I don't see any chance of winning the Div over GB

    Don't need to win the division to get to the conference title game either

    Do we need to go over the stats again Benj? Over the last 10 years the WC has RARELY gone through the North. The West has SF and Sea, the East has NY/Wash/Dallas(don't sleep on this one btw) and the South has Atl and NO's, hoping the team slips in via a WC is a slim to no chance, not to mention that the team has to beat out Minny also.

    Check your history books again:

    2012: GB (Div), Min (WC)
    2011: GB (Div), Det (WC)
    2010: Chi (Div), GB (WC)
    2009: Min (Div), GB (WC)

    So we are on a 4-year streak of the WC going through the NFCN, if you are trying to find a year that it DIDNT, you have to go all the way back to 2008.

    The last four years there has been a WC team coming out of the NFCN

    I think the Steelers and Giants were the last seeds when they won the Superbowls the first times in the last 10 years.

    Also, dont forget that both Chicago and Minny finished 10-6 last season, and the only reason Minny got the WC was because of tiebreaker they had over us. 10-6 is usually the magic number for WC

    I think GB is vulnerable this year. If we can stay relatively healthy with our key players (Cutler, B.Marsh etc) then we have a chance. Not saying we are a slam dunk to retake the division, but we have a chance. Also, this goes both ways regarding injuries. Green Bay could have a few key injuries too - and that could make them even more vulnerable.

    I just don't want to write us off as having no chance. Not at this point anyway.

    I believe the Bears will split with the Packers this year, but will definitely win the first meeting and get that tie breaker.

    The Packers will make Jay look like a HS QB again. I have us losing to the Packers twice again this year.

    You can lose to the packers twice and still win the division, or win the wild card.

    Makes it harder, but very possible

    Even if we get into the playoffs, we will probably have to go through Erin Rodgers to the Superbowl. The Packers lost to both the 49ers and Seahawks last year - twice to the 49ers. I doubt we can beat any of these teams.

    Biggest thing I'm waiting to see is if we stay aggressive on D . We sit back on our heels like we used to, we get picked apart. Tucker seems more proactive than reactive so far.

    The problem with the defense is that while they still have the capability to be a dominant offense, they are getting older. We need them to be able to keep up with their top notch, ball taking away dominance that they displayed for the first half of the year.

    Midway through last year the D stopped taking the ball away, and that led to our team's downfall.

    Granted the less than stellar offense might have led to the D's collapse, but they are getting older and may not be the once dominating defense that we have all come to know and love.

    Then again, we have been saying they are getting old for years now and to expect a step or two back and never really noticed much.... til the second half of last year that is.
