Grossman is just an accident waiting to happen, but Bears win anyway. I can't imagine that if they get by the Saints that they could possibly beat the Pats (the team I think will prevail over the Colts).
The Bears only lost to the Pats 13-17 at New England. I absolutley think the Bears can beat the Pats.
I'm surprised at how many people here won't support the NFC North in the playoffs.
Grossman has not been a liability (less the GB game) for the past several weeks. He's not having his 140 passer rating games, but he's functioning fairly well. Today he was not the problem less the one fumble. His receivers had a couple of drops and Muhammed allowed the interception.
The Colts have struggle on offense most of the playoffs, so I think the Pats are in. I'm torn on the Saints/Bears.
