From Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the Beast:

Week 1 is in the books, and overreactions are rampant. ?Prior to the preseason, I did my?first hierarchy. ?For this version, only one team moved more than 3 spots. ?That would be the Giants, who I made the #1 team as sort of a courtesy for being the champs. ? They dropped all the way to 7.

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

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.
