The talking heads and so called experts have all but picked the Atlanta Falcons to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl . But is Matt , Roddy , and Turner going to be enough when they go against the Chicago Bears ? After watching the Bears whip up on Rex Ryan's defensive minded Jets putting up 38 points on Revis Island . I'm convince Cutler and the Bears offense is good enough to score points on anybody in the playoffs , and with a healthy Urlacher , and Briggs along with the addition of Peppers the defense can hold their own against anybody in the playoffs . Forte and Taylor proved they are capable of running the football and their recievers can make big plays and don't forget about the best return man in football Devin Hester . The Bears have come together at the right time and if the Falcons make it to the NFC championship game my money is on " The Monsters of the Midway " .

How quickly the Bears fans have forgotten the NE game. I hope the Falcons make it to the big dance on the NFC side.

The one and only thing that scares me about da Bears, Jay Cutler ! He is playing much better of late, but put under pressure, man you just never know when he will start throwing it up? However I do like their chances ! Lets not forget about the defending champs who just knocked off those Falcons everybody is putting in the SB ..........

That was just a bump in the road to the SB but they came back after that loss with two wins . If my memory is correct the Pats lost to the Cleveland Browns , hopefully we'll meet again .

I agree. Cutler has been known crumble under pressure. He has an amazing arm but has trouble throwing in less than desirable conditions, tries to use his arm strength to place the ball in tight fast closing holes, and get's happy feet when pressured. The Falcons, although didn't look that great last night, don't really turn the ball over. Matt Ryan doesn't throw very deep often, but he only has 9 int's on the year and Turner rarely fumbles. Last night was out of the ordinary.

First, I'm not sure a lifelong Cowboy fan has a right to a hot NFL opinion this year. LOL

But, if I did it would be that I would like to see the Saints, Bears and Falcons battle it out and the best team win.

Here are the pitfalls as I see it.

Bears chances = Cutler playing with his head as well as his arm and feet. He plays well in spurts and Martz seems to have found a game plan to keep him upright. But which Cutler shows up is any ones guess.

Falcons, the question is do they have enough experience to handle the playoffs. If you listen to Matty Ice, he seems very mature and says the right things.

The Saints just have to overcome the Superbowl hangover and history. Multiple Lombardy trophies are hard to come by. But not impossible as a few teams can point out.

A Superbowl win by any of these 3 NFC teams wouldn't hurt my feelings...

Pro football is a team game. I couldn't tell you who is going to be in the last game of the year. But I can say that whoever steps up and plays well will have a really good chance to win it all. The Falcons offense is not the issue that I think will be tested. It is there defense that will have a point to prove.

As a Bears fan outside the NFC west winner; the team i am least sacred for the Bears to face is the Falcons.
