His only saving grace is the division his team is playing in . 9 games will probably win the East , they’ll get a home game in the playoffs possibly against the Vikings or Seahawks. He’ll be fired the Monday after that game ...

Glad the Bears came through some shoddy officiating and some blown coverages to get a good win. Trubisky played well again - I think this is mostly due to the o-line at last being somewhat reasonable. Doubt 9-7 makes playoffs and can't see Bears winning out. Defense not as dominant as last year and offense has fallen back too. They should have still been able to get to 10-6 or 11-5 but lost some very bad games.

 Seanie . the Bears are a mile away from being a playoff caliber team currently? The Lions had a 3rd string rookie QB starting and without a doubt, if Stafford was healthy , the Lions would have won that game . If Stafford is healthy , I’d say the Bears are the worst team in that division. Fair play to Trubiskey, he’s under pressure , but stood up when he needed to.

Agreed , underperforming, and also in arguably the worst division in football, or at least one of them.

Garrett has to go. Dak has been playing incredibly, they have the most expensive RB in history, a great o-line and a core of really good receivers, albeit have had some injuries.

If they get Stafford back can the Bears get Akiem Hicks back? Bears defense regressed badly when Hicks got that rotten injury in London. Haven't been the same on D ever since. Were 3-1 after conceding a total of 45 points in those 4 games (10, 14, 15 and 6), including 16 total against the Packers and Vikings.

Gets fairly weak fairly quick. Steelers defo better than some on that list, even with effectively no QB.

Lol. Seriously ? Who are on that list are the Steelers better than? There isn’t ONE team on that top ten that the Steelers would be close to . Name one team on it who the Steelers would start a favorite over on a neutral field? They will be lucky to win ONE of their remaining games .

It was some game Gabriel , Saban not happy with the officiating, good enough for the, !
Patriots in big trouble , right now outside of Baltimore all the decent teams seem to be in the NFC
Wouldn’t be surprised if was repeat of yesterday’s game between the Ravens and the Niners .

Gonna be real close for Superbowl , all the experts on form are going for Ravens v Saints but I'm going for Patriots v 49ers.
We are already planning our annual Superbowl night in the club , and as usual I reckon The Patriots ..Tom Brady our guy.
