The Bears have a great offense. They need to fix up the defense. They've made some good moves in the off-season to fix the holes. I'm looking forward to a good season.

BEARS IN SIX!

Oh, wait. That's hockey.

Jimmy Graham signed a four-year-deal this morning. I think this is, talent-wise, about as good a team as the Saints have had. They avoid the NFC West on the schedule, which is good I guess in a sense they won't have to worry about traveling to Seattle or San Francisco, but then means they need to take care of business to stay in the chase for home field. Winning in Philly in the playoffs at least got that monkey off their back, but a rematch against Seattle for all the marbles would be preferable in the Dome than in Seattle.

Hey, the Chargers aren't a sexy preseason pick this year. That bodes well!

To see the Bears have arguably the best receiving corps in the league is not something that I ever expected to see.

The Raaaaaaaaaaaiders will return to the playoffs and continue to be the team of the decades!  (still have 5 seasons!)

5. Green Bay Packers, 11-to-1
Last seen battling the San Francisco 49ers on the icy tundra of Lambeau Field - that was the game with all the snow and the endless shots of players on both sides clinging to any kind of warmth possible - Aaron Rodgers and company lost 20-23 but still looked like they could go all the way next season, provided they see a little bit more from their depleted receiving corps.

Packers receivers did fine last year when they had a QB, and it wasn't snow that happened in the play off game, it was the polar vortex (which is to say, really cold weather).

Megatron is better than Brandon Marshall, but Megatron + Tate + Ebron < Marshall + Jeffrey + Bennett.

Calvin Johnson is phenomenal, but excluding the still won't win anything part that is a delusional statement. I'd say the Broncos still edge out the Bears, though.
 
2014-07-15 01:12:31 PM
Let's just hope that those major defensive acquisitions for the Broncos pan out, that Von Miller can make it through the season uninjured and un-stupid, and that our run game improves.

Goddammitsomuch, I'm STILL pissed off about that craptastic performance in the Super Bowl.

NFC West will be a hoot this year.  Palmer finally figured out Arians' offense circa Week 6, so you can only think that he'll be fully prepared Week 1.

We should have a vastly better line;  last year's #1 pick overall tore up his knee in training camp so you could call last year his "redshirt" year, and we signed Veldheer away from Oakland, and by all accounts he's a pretty solid lineman.  Line was pretty bad last year so thi syear should be better.  We upgraded the already fairly strong receiving corps via the draft and defensively, the secondary will be improved (a healthy Tyrann Mathieu?) and we got an outstanding Sherman-type LB in the draft.  Linewise, we lost Dansby (Browns) which will be tough to replace, but....

but of course, the Santa Claraniners and SEA will be strong and the Rams, don't sleep on them.  Bradford's last year surely but you never know.

Along with those 8, there are about 17 other teams that wouldn't be total shockers.

One of my rules of thumb is that, at any given point in time, there are about 25 people who are truly capable of being a starting quarterback in the NFL. Since there are 32 teams, this causes an issue. However, if you're not one of the 7 teams who are starting, say, Chad Henne, you've got a chance.

Would it surprise anyone for Cam Newton to get hot in the playoffs and take the Panthers all the way? Or for somebody with a couple of rings already- say Rapey Ben or Eli- to grab another one?

Yes, there's more to a football team than a QB. But you're not gonna do much winnin' without a good one.

They have the best odds which is completely fair and reasonable.

No one is a lock to win the Super Bowl (85 Bears notwithstanding).

obvious point approaching, but without a doubt, the most important position in the Big Three plus Hockey sports.  a mediocre one can get carried to the playoffs, a great one will drive you there, but a bad one, forget it.
 
2014-07-15 01:52:57 PM
I think the Broncos are probably a lock for a good playoff run, but homefield is doubtful with their schedule. We also lost one of our best linemen (Beadles) to  LA Jacksonville.

Super Bowl XLI - Rex Grossman (lost but SB QB)
Super Bowl XL - Matt Hassleback (lost but SB QB) - I guess he was ok
Super Bowl XXXVIII - The Jake (lost SB QB)
Super Bowl XXVIII - Brad Johnson vs Rich Gannon (Gannon was a pro bowler that year I believe, but really?)
Super Bowl XXXV - Trent Dilfer vs Kerry Collins
Super Bowl XXXIII - Chris Chandler (He lost, but I don't even remember this guy)
Super Bowl XXX - Neil O'Donnell (lost but SB QB)

I wanted to refute you, but going back about 20 years there really are only a small handful of examples and most would fit your top 25 criteria
 
2014-07-15 01:58:19 PM
So lemme get this straight, the Bears, who were 10-6 in Lovie's last season but missed the playoffs, went to 8-8 but are supposed to be better?  With that defense?  Really?

I can see the Saints but only if they have home-field, otherwise they're toast.

Just pencil Brady and the Pats for 10 wins and (at least) being one of the last eight in the playoffs every year.

The Pack need to show me something defensively otherwise they're going nowhere.

Niners NEED to play the Seahawks in the Bay Area, no way they beat them up in Seattle.

The only weakness I see in the Seahawks is playing on the road against good opposition.

Drew Brees Purdue career ended in the 2001 Rose Bowl and we had 4 solid years with Orton starting in 03 - It was about 09 that I started getting sick about the upcoming seasons.

Basketball - the years of Hummel, Moore and Johnson were exciting every year for BBall -but Robbie's damn ACL ... I ... I can't even talk about it

This year in football ... 3 wins would almost feel successful ... sigh

I think it just means you can have a top tier team, have some luck and do fairly well without a top tier QB. But finding and having a top tier QB immediately elevates the entire team (see last year's Patriots).

The funny thing was that I read somewhere that Brees and Orton actually wanted to play for Iowa, but never got the phone call. Shows how Fry and Ferentz were totally, totally boneheaded.

Well, the Seabirds will get plenty of road experience in division that should be tough. That question will be answered one way or another.

Oh really?  Which ones?

The only thing I'm going to say about Super Bowl XL this week:

It's amusing as hell to see all those Santa Clara fans on Facebook complain about the officiating in the last NFC title game.....mostly because those same people were the ones who told us to get over Super Bowl XL.

The Bears  ended up at 8-8 last year because of literally the worst defense their franchise has ever known. With a defense that's even somewhere in the top 16-20 range, it's good enough to make them a frightening team that has the potential to take down anyone*

FTA: 2. Denver Broncos, 13-to-2

The purveyors of the best offense the NFL has ever seen felt the rough edge of the beatstick when they put up an utterly ineffective performance against Seattle in the Super Bowl, but the any given Sunday cliche cuts both ways, and Denver could very easily carve up defenses all the way to a title next season. The odds are set accordingly.

Holy shiat - I did completely forget about him and his time with the Bears - he was actually better than most of the Moses Moreno types we trotted out for 2.5 decades. Seriously can not believe I forgot him, he ushered in the Rex Grossman era and ended the Jim Miller era that was short lived after the Shane Matthews/Cade McNown Era, which was of course down from the previous Erik Kramer era (with a little Moses and Dave Kreig thrown in.) Oh and Steve Walsh. Things were ok in the McMahon > Tomczak > Harbough era - but then PT Willis showed up and well things went sideways. Will Furrer and Henry Burris are in there somewhere too.

When those are your highlights, I hope I can be forgiven for forgetting him. This is why I have to give some respect to our smoking QB.

I refuse to add Orton to the list because I still love him

Packers receivers did fine last year when they had a QB, and it wasn't snow that happened in the play off game, it was the polar vortex (which is to say, really cold weather).

It was actually a decent def effort, ruined by on CB who couldn't keep contain on a mobile QB


FARKING JARRET BUSH.

If there is literally no other cornerback on the roster to cover a WR they should let that WR run free instead of starting his awful ass. Ugh.

And yet he will be on the roster on opening night @ Seattle.  Probably covering a TE or Harvin because Dom thinks he can keep up with them.
