I'm a Giants fan. You can imagine how much I'm loving things.

With Jacksonville, Tampa, and Miami the entire state of Florida is pretty much an NFL train wreck this year.
 
But otherwise I don't think it sucks, except maybe for the overwhelming mediocrity of the NFC East.  There are some exciting young players to watch and it's nice to see some different teams at the tops of the divisions.

Except that I don't care much for my home state's team.  My favorite team's QB is recovering from a groin injury.

You're a Bears fan? Poor guy. (Although they're certainly doing better than the Giants.) That Bulldog Turner is a heckuva linebacker.

And if there are any more injuries on the defensive side of the ball the Bears just might have to bring him back.

My Jets are 5-4 & had a bye on Sunday; I'm counting that as a good week.
 
This parity thing is turning ugly.

Watching the Philly game this morning. A new sport that looks fun.

Steelers lose at home to Miami.  In a snowstorm.
 
Just not the Steelers' year.

Terrible teams find a way to lose. And they are a dreadful team right now.

The Eagles have been a pleasant surprise for me this year. Still not convinced that they are a good team but have been fun to watch. Shady McCoy set single game Eagles rushing record today.

Are you a native of southern CA or some other warm location, Ed?  When I was chronologically younger we loved playing football in snowy weather, especially when the ground hadn't frozen yet and we would get covered in mud from head to toe.  I'm sure our mothers weren't quite as enthusiastic about it as we were.

The Bears need to win out and get one more Detroit loss to make the playoffs.  I'm not exactly optimistic about that happening but if it does maybe they'll go into the playoffs on a roll, like they did in 1977.  But hopefully with better results!

I've called three cities home:  Pittsburgh, Washington, DC, and Dallas. 
 
One of the nicest things about Pittsburgh is that sadness and disappointment is the Zeitgeist of the City when "our boys" do poorly.  The first instinct is commiseration.
 
In DC and Dallas it is ugliness, anger, recrimination, the mandatory assignment of blame, and furious demands for "consequences".  Did anyone notice that 80% of yesterday's FedEx Field crowd went home at the half?
 
Willie Stargell hit on it in 1979:  "We are Family". 
 
No wonder that Pittsburgh is always at the top of 'best places to live' and 'nicest people' lists!

I grew up in Indianapolis and went to college in Cincinnati but have no connections to the Colts and Bengals since they didn't exist when I lived there. The Cleveland Browns were my team. I took that to an extreme. I married a girl from Cleveland (Bay Village).
 
43 years in Minnesota has made me a stoic Viking fan but I have yet to have tried Lutefisk. That might be because I spent three years in Newport, Rhode Island. Rhode Island does things to you.

It's funny that you mention that Pittsburgh is at the top of 'nicest people' lists.  MH always commented on that when we were in WPA.  I thought it was normal to talk to strangers at the grocery store, in the mall parking lot, at a restaurant, etc.  They don't do that in Columbus!

Indeed.  All you have to do in Pittsburgh is "look lost" and offers to help are quickly forthcoming.

The bitterness and recrimination are at a fevered pitch in both Dallas and Washington!
 
Bill Cowher's agent must be licking his chops.

After yesterday I've no doubt that some are calling for Jason Garrett to go the way of Kim Jong Un's uncle.
 
I just can't see Cowher working for either Jerry Jones or Dan Snyder when his previous employer was the Rooney family.

I like to see Dallas win if only because it makes those I work with happier. 
 
The general consensus here in Dallas is that it's time for Jerry Jones to become Owner-Emeritus and GM-Emeritus, let his kids play owner and hire a "real" Head Coach and GM.  Parcells built the 'winning part' of the present dallas team and Wade Phillips & Garrett have pi$$ed it away.
 
Who knows and who cares what that Midget Megalomaniac does in DC.  He should just go play on his yacht:

Evidently I have been sleeping on my STEELERS
 
They can actually be the #6 seed if:
 
They beat the Brownies.  (Done Deal!).
The Jets beat the Fish.  (A definite possibility).
Kansas City wakes up and beats the Chargers.  (Likely).
 
Then they would get Denver at Denver. 
 
But strange things happen on that field, like Tebow throwing for 318 yards (make that 3:18 yards) against the Steelers in the playoffs a few years back. 
 
Sometimes prayers are answered; Tebow certainly had The Almighty on his side that day!

Don't forget, the Bengals have to beat the Ravens.  And if the Steelers make it into the playoffs as the #6 seed, they would play at the #3 seed, as the top two teams would get a bye.

True. 
 
Evidently I hadn't awoken completely when I wrote that post at 5AM this morning.
 
That said, as this season proceeded so 'yuckily' and 'unluckily', I am truly amazed that the Steelers still have a credible shot at the playoffs.

And if they do make the playoffs, they will not be an easy out for anybody.

Yes.  As I recall, they made the platoffs in 2006 as a Wild Card and won The Big Game for the 5th. of their 6 (and counting) Lombardi Trophies.
