Hey all. Did a half hour or so with Bill Simmons today, finally getting a midseason NFL update on the B.S. Report. You can hear us debate whether trap games exist (we disagree) and whether the Jets are lucky or good (our conclusion: both). I also give a special preview of this week's playoff odds, including a new feature we'll be running each week: What is the chance that the NFC West champion has a losing record?

New format for Numbers Crunching this week, much more like what we used to do with New York Sun game previews. We focus on three games, rather than give random bits about all 16. This week: PIT-OAK, NE-IND, and PHI-NYG.
