NFL  > Chicago Bears  > Lions and Packers and Bears, Oh My!

I watched my beloved Bears take apart the Falcons yesterday and I feel real confident about winning another NFC North title. The Packers and Lions also look very tough and I say, bring it on!

Just think in the NFC South you have a 4 way tie for 1st place after week one; New Orleans, Atlanta, Tampa Bay and Carolina are all 0-1.

The North defeats the South again. Sad times for the fans in Dixie.

Their problem not ours. We went through a time a few years ago where the "Experts" said we were the weakest division in the NFL. Now it's someone elses turn thankfully. GO BEARS!!!

I think it is no secret that the weakest division is the NFC West. For now.

Congrats to you on the Bears win as I thought they looked almost unbeatable against the Falcons. The Packers and Lions also played great games and the NFC North looks like the class of the NFC.

The best thing about this game to me was that even though it was a game that we won decisively, we still can make alot of improvements and get better. It won't leave a bitter taste in the players mouths to watch the tapes, but they still will be inspired to do better. Which is exactly what this team needs with New Orleans and Green Bay to come in the next two weeks. Granted the Defense had a very good game, but the Offense needs to get to the point that they can win some games for us on their own. Every unit/team has bad games and with the Offense getting better it will only strengthen this team if/when they can start playing up to their potential.

This to me is the best Chicago Bears team since the Payton era. We have a dominating defense and special teams. Our offense however with it's current players could easily be an average or better offense. Something that we have not had since Walter. We need the offensive line to gell and open up the running lanes better, and the passing game to become capable of exploiting defenses weaknesses. By the end of this season I think we will have just that which combined with our D and Specials will terrify the NFL. Think about it for the first time since Walter they have to play a complete team when they play the Bears. Win the Super Bowl or bust...in 2011. Go BEARS!!!

I personally could not believe what people were saying/expecting with the Rams against the Eagles. I feel the Eagles are one of the best teams in the NFC and the Rams have quite a way to go yet. But I still say, GO BEARS WIN the SUPERBOWL or BUST!!!

The Lions, Bears or Packers are good enough to reach the Super Bowl in my opinion.

I don't feel the Lions are quite there yet. Maybe next year, but this isn't their year. NFC comes down to Green Bay, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Atlanta IMO. I know five teams is a lot to say it comes down to, but it's week 1 so can't rule anything out quite yet.

I agree Alaska. The Lions are improving fast but have to prove they can match up with Green Bay or Chicago. They may surprise us.

Yep, happens twice a year, can't avoid it buddy! Just pulling your yez chain...lol. The NFC may just be the new and improved "Black & Blue" division this year!

September 13, 2011  08:49 PM ET

We always are were and will be the BLACK and BLUE division no matter if we win or lose!!! GO BEARS!!!

I have never before in my life said something so absurd etc like what I'm saying now "Super Bowl Win or Bust." It's just that in my 53 years of life, I've only once before been so hopeful of the Bears to win it all. That was in 1984/85. Now this year I see a team that I cannot for the life of me see how JA and Lovie could have made it but they have. And this team really looks to be the real thing. So barring injuries I am going out on a limb further than my normally cautious personality usually lets me. One thing though, I really would not be suprised to see the NFC North to win 2 to four Super Bowls in a row!!! Crazy I hope not, but I can see with the teams that we have that it could happen!!! GO BEARS!!! Superbowl or BUST!!!

What do you think of the Denver Broncos?

September 14, 2011  02:26 PM ET

The Bronco's have a long and great history with alot to be proud of, I just am disappointed in their choice of their coach/GM before this one. As far as their team goes, they won't do anything fantastic for a few years. Sorry. GO BEARS!!!
