Bears back in to the playoffs thanks to LA. Gonna be ugly in New Orleans next week.

Didn't realize til they mentioned it on the broadcast that this is the first AFC South title for the Titans since 2008. I would have figured they would have won the division more recently than that.

The Bears back into the expanded playoffs, probably saving the jobs of Nagy and Pace in the process.

I guess once you're in you never know but this doesn't do it for me. I have no confidence in this group to make any noise in the postseason.

I just was reminded that the Dolphins have the 3rd pick in a draft from Houston involving Larry Tunsil. Should any of that Houston brass be there, offer Leno and Mitch for Watson. They traded DHop and the 3rd pick, those people should never work in football again.

I'm pretty sure that was BoB's (Bill O'Brien) doing, and he was already fired.

So when the two additional wild card games were added this season, CBS and NBC acquired the broadcast rights to them. As part of CBS' additional game they get to broadcast, there will be an alternate broadcast geared towards kids that will air on Nickelodeon. This tweet from one of the Bears' beat writers is in regards to that as that Bears-Saints game will include the alternate broadcast on Nickelodeon:

To me it keeps coming back to this question: How can ownership possibly go back to Pace and say, “Here, have some more of my money to pay a quarterback chosen by you?”
But, this is the McCaskeys, you know. Brad Biggs was on the Score this morning saying that if the Bears can win on Sunday against the Saints that Pace will be safe. Don't know if he has specific insider info or if its just a hunch. In my opinion no matter what happens Sunday I think Nagy and Pace are both back for 2021.

I don’t think the problem with the McCaskeys is that they tolerate mediocrity. We wouldn’t be looking at the possibility of the 5th Bears head coach in 11 seasons if that were the case.

The problem with the McCaskeys is that they don’t have the slightest idea what they’re doing and yet meddle with the football side of the business all the time anyway. They make it functionally impossible for the Bears to hire the best and brightest because the best and brightest don’t think they’ll be allowed to do their jobs.

It only took me 10 years of playing but I finally won a fantasy league! Blowout win in the finals!

I won a 14 team league I'm in for the first time and I've been in that one about 8 or 9 years now. Having Kamara helped though if he even had a normal fantasy week I still would have won that league.

I hope your league wasn't a Week 17 championship league. If it is and you're not the commish, you need to ask the commish to move it to Week 16.

Devastating drop by Wims, who doesn’t need to be on the roster next season, and Mitch has to get that first down on the scramble. I like how hard the D is playing, with the injuries I just don‘t think they have the personnel to hang with the Saints for four quarters. Eddie Jackson though looks like a shell of his former self.
