Okay, we got some time before the last weekend kickoff... so let us drink up and ponder the ESPN Power Rankings:

Somebody on here earlier in the year was trying to tell me that Dallas was WAY BETTER than where they were listed in the power ranking. And son of a gun on the last week they are right in the middle just like they were then.

Demarco Murray will get the TD’s in the 4th quarter after Philly puts in their subs to give the starters a rest. ;^)

Since the basturds at Time Warner decided for the second week in a row to not telivise the Broncos, I will happily cheer on the Chargers.

After all, I did live in SD for six years.........but gave up on the Chargers for obvious reasons after a few years.

Blue, you are smoking too much of that Wacky So Cal Weed 'cause when I try it... my Boys are undefeated, untied and unscored upon!

Even smoking killer weed would not make that... logical, Bend.

And, it never worked... for me either.

The Rams really cleaned up on that RG3 trade.

Now only if they would get rid of Sam Bustford and draft a real QB like Johnny Manziel, they would be a team to be reckoned with.

But as long as Bustford is sucking up 17 Million a year of salary cap and playing like the mediocre QB that he is, he will continue to be an Albatross around the neck of the Rams.

Remember when the Bears played defense? Opponents have scored at least 40 points against Chicago four times this season, the same number as the previous nine seasons combined.

The Cowboys are really below average when you take into account the horrendous division they're in and the soft schedule they've had as a result. Their victory against the Eagles earlier in the year is their only win against a team that has a winning record.

From http://nextimpulsesports.com/2013/12/23/twas-sunday-christmas/:

Twas the Sunday before Christmas, when all through the league,
The playoff picture was shifting at baffling speeds.
Ugly numbers were hung on opponents with care,
Embarrassing playoff hopeful teams, most notably Bears.

The Broncos were nestled all sung in their bye,
With visions of Meadowlands behind wishful eyes.
The last game in Candlestick features a young man named Kaep
Versus Falcons who’ve just settled in for a long winters nap.

When in the NFC North arose such a clatter,
All three Divisional hopefuls could not have played flatter.
Rogers with his clavicle, and Cutler McCown’ed
One of two backups could end up playoff bound.

Losing 58 to zero the last time in Seattle,
The Cardinals were faced to with a daunting division battle.
They handed The Twelfth Man their first home loss in the last 14 attempts
And some help from Carolina keeps the Cards on the fence.

Romo almost added to the legend of bad Decembers
But when you win on forth and goal that’s all anyone remembers.
Romo to Murray, the goal line did break the ball,
To set up next week with the Eagles, a winner take all.

In Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs seem to have stumbled
As Smith threw two picks and added a fumble.
The Colts won in a previewed of this playoff match up
And exposed some holes the Chiefs need to patch up.

In St. Louis, players donned jerseys thrown back
Quinn’s 18 leads the league after adding three sacks.
While in Jacksonville another game with no meaning was played
How meaningless you ask? To a veteran center a screen pass was made.

Bengals reach the playoffs each of Dalton’s three years,
But red hair and Green put Dalton at the butt of some jeers.
But one seed above, the Pats hurt the Ravens playoff hunt,
Blowing out the birds, with two TDs from Blount.

Santa is cold in the North, while things heat up in the South,
The Panthers came out and punched the Saints in the mouth.
Panthers make the playoffs for what seems like the first time since Nixon,
On a game winning pass from Newton to Hixon.

Now Chargers! Now Ravens! Now Steelers wait to see who still gets in,
Because Tannehill found the ground, every time Bills were blitzin’.
To the top of the wild card, one more week of football,
Til all but one’s hopes are dashed, dash away all.

He sprang into action, from the season’s first whistle,
51 touchdowns, controlling the ball like a heat seeking missile.
Manning was heard to exclaim, in reference to his numbers out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, before I tell the NFL good night!”

Ho, ho... ho!

From http://nfl.si.com/2013/12/24/nfc-playoff-scenarios-week-17-nfl/

The San Francisco 49ers became the third NFC team to secure a playoff spot with their win over the Falcons. Here’s what is at stake for them — and the rest of the teams in the postseason mix — in Week 17:

Seattle Seahawks (12-3)
• Would clinch NFC West and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs with a win or tie, or San Francisco loss or tie.

Carolina Panthers (11-4)
• Would clinch NFC South and a first-round bye with a win or tie, or a New Orleans loss or tie.
• Would clinch home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs with a win, Seattle loss and San Francisco win.

Philadelphia Eagles (9-6)
• Would clinch NFC East and the No. 3 seed with a win or tie.

Chicago Bears (8-7)
• Would clinch NFC North and the No. 4 seed with a win or tie.
• Would clinch NFC North and the No. 3 seed with a win, and Dallas win or tie.

San Francisco 49ers (11-4)
• Would clinch NFC West and a first-round bye with a win and Seattle loss.
• Would clinch West and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs with a win, Seattle loss, and Carolina loss or tie.

New Orleans Saints (10-5)
• Would clinch a playoff spot with a win or a loss by Arizona, or a tie and an Arizona loss or tie.
• Would clinch NFC South and a first-round bye with a win and Carolina loss.

Arizona Cardinals (10-5)
• Would clinch a playoff spot with a win or tie and New Orleans loss.

Dallas Cowboys (8-7)
• Would clinch NFC East and the No. 4 seed with a win.
• Would clinch NFC East and the No. 3 seed with a win and Chicago loss.

Green Bay Packers (7-7-1)
• Would clinch NFC North and the No. 4 seed with a win.

Gadzooks, big! We're sucking hind tit... again!
