      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.

      @ 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.

      Thanks Andy; You're The Man & Are Cool With Me. This is going to be A VERY Fascinating & high profile next two weeks for the NFC East teams. Philly! New York! DALLAS! These markets will explode with any of them losing in Week 16. Let's Watch!

      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.
