  • 2012 NFL Football Thread - It's playoff time, make your picks!

    It's Sunday, and that means Football.

    I am a Bears fan, and I am looking forward to their game today against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Who do you root for?

    My 49ers looked great yesterday. Very happy with the result.

    I'm a little disappointed that everybody kept saying the 49ers winning was an "upset", it wasn't.

    Peyton Manning looked great yesterday as did RG III.

      Chicago has a football team. At least that's what the fans are thinking after the great start the Bears had.

      Colts 21 Bears 41. I said that backwards. I don't pretend to know football, I just know it was fun to watch.

      Now let's make the Packers 0-2.

        Bears/Packers. 2nd Quarter already, and no score.

        Packers settle for a field goal.

        Packers 3, Bears 0.

          It's going to be really weird for us this year. The Ravens play the entire NFC east. Not some.. the entire division!

          Not sure if anyone has a schedule as tough as the Ravens.. for non-division we play
          Philly - Vick
          Patriots - Brady
          KC
          Dallas
          Houston
          Oakland
          San Diego - Rivers
          Washington - RGIII
          Denver - Payton
          Giants - Eli

          Really the only big QB teams we AREN'T playing are GB and NO. The only below average teams on that list are KC and Oakland. Houston is perceived to be a growing threat..

          Looking forward to playing Vick this weekend. Also happy that even tho we had to SHARE Monday Night Football (WTH was that???) Ravens got enough attention to be #1 in many week #1 power rankings.

          Our defense has got some pretty serious issues right now.. but the hurry up Offense looks like too many weapons for most teams to cope with.

            I turn the channel to catch up on my soap opera, and the Bears are down 13 to 0 at the half.

                They better protect the quarterback, or this game is going to get uglier, and uglier.

                Well it wasn't pretty. With two minutes left in the game, it appears the Bears will lose 23 to 10.

                  I'm biased, but it appears that the Niners are clearly the team to beat this season. That defense is scary good. I don't think that there will be a single team capable of establishing the running game against them. The offense isn't explosive, but it's efficient. They'll have their off weeks and drop a few, but I've got to think they'll be on top of just about every power rankings poll after New England and Baltimore dropped a couple close ones yesterday. This season is going to be one heck of a ride for Niners fans.

                    2-0 against two very good teams. WTG 49ers!!!

                    Offense looked great yesterday. More TD's than FG's is something they have worked on since last season. Any time they can score more than 20 or so points is most likely going to be a win.

                      Dear Baltimore,

                      Please beat the Patriots.

                      Sincerely,

                      Lowly Dolphins Fan.

                      Wouldn't it be strange if Miami and Buffalo are 2-1 and New England and da Jets are 1-2. Could very well happen.

                        Barbara, it's my Rams against your Bears this week. May it be a well played game (though it's asking a lot from both sides).

                        These weekly Thursday night games are throwing me off and I forget to tune in. In the past it's not until at least midway through the season that they have those Thurs games. I can't imagine what a toll it takes on teams in terms of preparation as well as the fatigue/recovery factor to play on a Sun and then again just four days later.

                          Some folks here are already saying it's a "must win" for the Bears. They sure don't want to be 1-2 after the 3rd week.

                            I hope the nfl comes to there senses tommorow. Each week is getting worse with the refs. The ravens game was so insane even the announcers were speechless.

                            And it seems all the refs never got the 2010 and 2011 memos on defenseless receivers. People are getting hurt now
