Excellent Simmons this week, lots of good jokes, good observations, and very little Boston-centeric bias that will piss off those of you who root for the other 31 teams. He's dead on about those stupid "fantasy stats" scrolls that tell you which lame receiver has one catch for six yards. Whoopee. Bill's Bears bandwagon takes other step this week, as he suggests that they could even make it to the Super Bowl. It sounds ridiculous, but I was actually thinking about something this morning. In Super Bowl V, Johnny Unitas got injured and Earl Morrall came off the bench, leading a Colts team with a great defense to the championship. In Super Bowl VII, Don Shula benched Morrall and brought back Bob Griese, and he led a Dolphins team with a great defense to the championship. You see where I'm going with this, don't you?

The NFL playoffs finally heat up, as a wild finish in Dallas and a tight game in Kansas City go some way to making up for the blowouts that preceded them.
