Yahoo ^ | Dec 18, 2012

Posted on 12/18/2012 8:27:17 PM PST by campaignPete R-CT

In the NFC, five 8-6 teams appear to be competing for two available spots, though the 9-5 Seahawks haven't secured their postseason berth yet.

And while the Steelers, Cowboys and Giants wouldn't make the playoffs if the season ended today, all would get in by winning their remaining two games. The Vikings, who would make it right now, do not control their own fate.

my sure winner is: CAROLINA

my sure loser is: CLEVELAND
(used AZ, MIAMI, TB, TENN, BUFF, GIANTS, DET, CAR, KC, STL, SD, OAK, PHIL, NO, JAX earlier weeks, 12-2-1) (can only use each team once per season)

week 16 ping

there are about 7 games at 1pm EST with playoff competing teams. At, 2:30pm, I plan on hitting the sports bar with satellite TV and all the games on their 10 TV sets. Can watch the 2nd half for all the games. It’s the only way I get to see PT vs CIN.

Embarrassed to admit it, however, I love the DirecTV NFL package.

All the games except the ones on my local channels and the RED Zone.

Yeah, it’s some $ but I do get to see my Bears and suffer the humiliations...

RG3’s knee is better so he gets to take on the lifeless Eagles.

NFL is not the hot topic around here. It’s game day.
Atlanta got a game on their hands, trying to wrap up a bye and #1.

i think in New England we get the Pats game and Green Bay late. And the early games: Jets game and NYG. I’d rather watch HOUS-INDY at 1 pm, but we get the Jets. GOP-ma, What do you think will air on Boston-CBS? Jets?

I did 14-2 this week.

SEA @ REDSKINS would be a good showdown with the winner looking like they are facing ATLANTA. Maybe.

Wilson, the defense and the Seahawks are looking like the real deal. I don't think the Redskins can match the Seahawks.

I'm a Packer fan, but their lack of consistency concerns me.

SO if my Bears get in (win + MN loss) they’ll play the Niners (Packers will get the 2 seed if they beat MN) unless the Niners lose to AZ (LOL).

#6 CHI @ #3 SF (OR SEA) and then, if they win, CHI @ ATL

Impy becoming a prominent NFL thread presence.

A dusting of white
in an empty town
fake people wishing you a
Merry Phony Christmas

The days past of Ice Bowl glory
when life was real
But Lombardi is dead

Reality is that which,
when you stop believing in it,
doesn’t go away.

I’m speechless.

This piece is worthy of “Nobel-Poet-Lauriate” consideration.

WOW!!!
