The Bears have not faced the Packers in the playoffs since the week after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.....

On behalf of everyone who wanted logic and good sense to prevail?. thank you, Chicago Bears.

The Seattle Seahawks (8-10) never belonged in this year?s NFC playoffs (let alone as a four seed), and while the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints couldn?t prove that in Seattle last week, the Bears (12-5) did, with an easy 35-24 divisional playoff win over Seattle at Soldier Field in Chicago on Sunday afternoon.

Since the Philadelphia Eagles made their historic 21-point 4th quarter comeback against the Giants on Dec 19, they failed to win another game.

Yesterday in Philadelphia, the Green Bay Packers, who slammed the Giants the week after the Eagles did, exposed the Eagles as playoff frauds. The Packers took an early lead and never lost it, winning 21-16 and eliminating the Eagles from the postseason.

According to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk........

Center Shaun O'Hara has pulled out of the Pro Bowl since he will undergo surgery. O'Hara had ankle and foot injuries and played in just six games this season. Carolina Panthers center Ryan Kalil will take his roster spot on the NFC Pro Bowl team..
