In the time I've lived in Chicago, I've engaged a lot of football fans in a lot of conversations. And do you know something I've never heard anyone say? "We need a second NFL team." But Mayor Daley wants to build a domed stadium that would attract the Olympics to Chicago in 2016, and he thinks the way to get financing for the stadium is to bring another NFL team to the Windy City. I think this is about as likely as the Cubs moving to Albuquerque and changing their name to the Isotopes.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
