...is no walk in the park. At one point while I was watching the game they reported the on field temperature being -10 degrees with wind chill. Michael Vick and many of the Falcons looked absolutely miserable. Well if the cold doesn't make Vick sick I am sure looking at his statline will make him queasy: 13-32 for 122 yards and 2 interceptions.

The Bears dominated the game winning 16-3. Perhaps, the most news worthy story of the game was the insertion of Rex "Please Don't Get Hurt" Grossman in the second half. He definitely appeared to throw a tighter spiral then Orton and had some nice throws downfield. While he is not the second coming of Joe Montana it would be hard to see him not as the starter next week versus the lowly Packers.

The Bears are now 10-4 and have a very winable game next week followed by a game they should win to close out the season. I would predict that they finish 12-4 and have a first round home game. Having their first game in Chicago more or less guarantees them a first round win in my opinion. A bad weather football game is always to the advantage of the team with a better defense. And who has the best defense in all of football?

Vick and crew were miserable because those temperatures aren't fit for human habitation!
