    We will go as Dak goes. If he has a solid game (20% of the time) we win. If hes 200yds 1td and 1 int then we are status quo since our last playoff win

    Cowboys passing game was non-existent earlier this year against the seahawks and that's probably being kind. That was obviously before Amari came on board so it will be telling if the passing game looks good and if he has a big game or not

    I felt like Hilton had been in the league forever so I looked up his Wikipedia page. Learned this tidbit:

    "Hilton committed to Florida International University (FIU) on February 6, 2008.[6] He was scouted by the University of Mississippi, West Virginia University, the University of Florida and FIU. He made the choice to go to FIU over West Virginia the night before National Signing Day, when his son chose FIU six times in a row when he put both an FIU and West Virginia hat in front of him.[7][8]"

    We all thought that both teams were quite a bit improved from the week 3 matchup.

    I think Seattle is dangerous but we're beat up on the line and in the secondary. If Dal +2 is still the line I think that's probably right but I believe Seattle wins in a close one. I loooove watching Vander Esch but I hope he has an off game so Carson can go off.

    It’s dal -2 but I’m pretty sure that’s what you meant. Indy was able to run all over us and that worries me. Seattle may have some success there. And then of course mobile QBs like Wilson always seem to be our kryptonite.

    What do you not like about Mitch? He finished 3rd in QBR, 2/1 TD/INT ratio, 67% completion percentage... Is he Breese or Mahomes? No. But he's had a good year and developed nicely.

    Our running game with Howard, Cohen and sprinkle of Mitch is 11th best in football.

    The offense is penty good enough to win a superbowl when you see how elite the defense has been this year.

    I don't really like the "up and down" guys as far as being consistently good.

    Mitch had a passer rating below 80 in 6 games this season (and he only played in 14). Yes he was very good in a lot of the other games, but 43% of your starts being "down" is not very consistent.

    Forget QBR for a second, this postseason would you take Trubisky over Russel Wilson? Phillip Rivers? Andrew Luck? Brees and Mahomes are no brainers. Im not saying Mitch is terrible, he had a good season and very good for a 2nd year guy and has a bright future it looks like. Just the consistency is worrisome imo

    Russel - No
    Rivers - No
    Luck - No
    Breese - No
    Mahomes - No
    Watson - No
    Brady - No
    Goff - No
    Foles - Yes
    Dak - Yes
    Jackson - Yes

    None of that honestly matters because the Bears are not winning the super bowl based on QB play. Its gonna be on the play of the elite defense. If this defense matches what it did in the regular season I would imagine baring a epic failure from Mitch the Bears will play into late January or February.

    Mitch is capable of playing at the level of maybe even a little higher level than Peyton Manning played in the Broncos super bowl. Like Bankz said it will all come down to the defense.


    Also as far as that list of people you would take trubisky over I think it depends on the team. For example the way the ravens are playing with Lamar only works because we are getting good blocking and have a very good defense. I think the bears have a better defense and Lamar would do really well there. I wouldn’t want Lamar or trubisky on a team that feels forced to score every time they get the ball.

    How many RBs, WRs and TEs that are in the playoffs would you pick before you thought of a ravens player if you were ranking them?

    Kamara, Ingram, Michael Thomas

    Tyreek hill, Travis kelce

    Tarik cohen, Jordan Howard, Allen Robinson

    Todd gurley, brandin cooks

    Keenan Allen, mike Williams, Melvin Gordon

    Julian Edelman, Sony Michel, James white, rob gronkowski

    Deandre Hopkins, demaryius thomas

    Marlon Mack, TY hilton, Eric ebron

    Carson, Lockett, Baldwin

    Zach ertz, Golden Tate, Alston Jeffery

    Zeke, Amari cooper

    I count 30 and that doesn’t include a few I thought were borderline and a few players who are injured. Remarkable how bad our skill positions are.

    Cowboys get it done if they protect the ball. Turnovers lost them that game earlier in the year if you go back and watch.
