Seattle’s relentless, physical defense left Denver helpless.
Although they made a deeper playoff push a year ago, the 2013 season for the 49ers was far from a letdown. The team continued to improve each week, and heading into the off season know that they have a quarterback and defense that is going to make them contenders for years to come.
Up next for the 49ers are the Carolina Panthers. Although the Panthers came to Candlestick earlier this season and beat San Francisco, the 49ers are the better team and have a very good shot at winning their second straight road playoff game.
To now continue to rail against Cutler is howling at the moon, tilting at windmills, typing in metaphors.
The Carolina Panthers had to win the last game of the season to get the NFC South title and a first-round bye so it’s not like it was a time they could rest their players. Steve Smith had to sit out with an injury, and there were not a lot of other options for Cam Newton to rely on, but there need to be.
Seattle has already faced, and beaten, both the Saints and 49ers this season but not the Packers. Does the unknown help or hurt a team in the Playoffs?
Jay Cutler could cure cancer and would still not win people over because of his lack of warmth and fuzziness.
Bears fans have come to know their first-year coach is one who is willing to take risks.
Justin Tucker’s career-long 61-yard field goal with 38 seconds left lifted the Baltimore Ravens to an 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions in a Monday night matchup with major playoff implications.
At age 34, Josh McCown is playing the best football of his career.
Such candidness and volume of response is not supposed to happen from an NFL coach.
Josh McCown credited the unseen hand of divine power.
At least the Bears defense can say that it made its own luck.
Tim Baffoe did some crowdsourcing to get an idea of exactly what Cutler is dealing with.
So come along and let’s point and laugh at some of these precious souls who actually verbalized their assumptions or desires for the Chicago Bears to sign either Brett Favre or Tim Tebow.
One of the most dangerous aspects of the Bears may just be also the simplest.
Each team has just 16 chances to distinguish itself from the pack in order to secure a playoff spot and hopefully a bid in the Super Bowl. The question is, quite simply, will the Super Bowl champion emerge from the AFC or NFC?
The NFL’s cruel version of the law of averages is more likely than ever to find its way to Aaron Rodgers, particularly with some serious offensive line questions.
Here’s an update on which NFC teams took a step forward this week, and which ones overwhelmed the training staff with a rash of new injuries…
The biggest joke in sports is about to get funnier. A lot funnier.
