      Philly have become my lost cause for the season. Saturday's game v Dallas is going to be must-see.

      Game 15 on week 16 of the NFL season and well over half of the teams in the league still have a heartbeat with respect to playoff qualification. Amazing.....Pete Rozelle has a big smile on his face somewhere. So many cities and fans are still totally engaged. It's a lot of fun. It is the time of year where you want to be catching fire, playing your best football. Just get in the one and done format with a lot of confidence. The Falcons seem to be peaking at the right time. If the Eagles get in somehow, no one will want to play them......very explosive.

      Good point, Dave.

      @ Dave,

      Great point, to compare and contrast, the point in time when 50% of the D1A College teams are still in the hunt for the BCS Championship is somewhere around Spring Football.

      This year, you were down to 5 teams by late October.

      The one thing I will say in defense of college football, and believe me, I hate the BCS as much as anyone, is that college football tries to make a big deal out of winning the conference championship, by putting value into that. At least it means a lot more in college football than in any other sport. So your statement isn't exactly true.
