Once upon a time, Chicago dominated the NFC. But the quarterback imploded and injuries weakened the defense. Can the Bears use home-field advantage to recover their mojo and stop the Cinderella story of America's Team, the New Orleans Saints?

It's the Colts and the Patriots again. Those of you who want to argue about the quarterbacks know where to go. But here, let's talk about the other 90 or so guys who will take the field Sunday, especially the safeties. This game could come down to the health of Bob Sanders and Rodney Harrison.

There's nothing fancy about this week's Too Deep Zone: just four teams, four plays (five actually), and lots of diagrams as Mike Tanier uses tape of last week's games to predict what the Bears, Colts, Patriots, and Saints have planned for the conference championships.

How bad is this year's All-KCW Team? Terrence Kiel didn't make it, and he was arrested for selling cough syrup. Chris Chambers didn't make it, and some of us are convinced he's a robot programmed to drop passes. Andrew Walter's holding a clipboard, and ... well, Andrew Walter's not bad at holding a clipboard. We think. Plus a playoff draft update and Jason Beattie's comic: a Tedy Bruschi joint!

The Indianapolis Colts are in the AFC Championship because of their defense and physical running game? What's wrong with the world? The Colts have made adjustments, but success on third downs accounts for a large part of their improvement. Also, Steve McNair may have sunk the Ravens, but he also propelled them to their best offense in years.

You stay classy, San Diego. And you too, New Orleans, with your "F--- da Eagles" t-shirts.
