I would like to begin by thanking the Seattle Seahawks. Thanks to their thumping of the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, we now know, now and forever, that there are two NFLs. And one blows the doors off the other. The one NFL has gaudy, eye-popping passing stats. I don't even think they mean anything anymore. Oh, you know them. For you fantasy geeks, they're for you. They create buzz, conversation and highlights. Oh yeah, they sell tickets and boost ratings. Gaudy numbers. 455 yards passing?

Welp, the Bears paid Jay Cutler. Paid him like they landed on Boardwalk with three hotels and a Risk ten-army on top. (You make some rules changes to get through Chicago winters.) And whether or not you agree they overpaid for No. 6, all Bears fans can agree the defense has to get fixed real quick-like. With the 14th pick in the upcoming draft, the Bears have a shot at a great playmaker on defense, such as Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard, Florida defensive end Dominique Easley, or even Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Showtime's "Shameless" filmed a Chicago tailgate party and a flash mob in November, and both scenes appear in the Season 4 premiere. You can watch the premiere, which debuts at 8 p.m. Jan. 12 on TV, online right now. The episode begins shortly after the Season 3 finale with the Gallagher clan spread far and wide. Fiona (Emmy Rossum) and the younger kids are still at home, but Lip (Jeremy Allen White) is at college and no one has heard from Ian (Cameron Monaghan) or Frank (William H. Macy)

Now that the long slow death of the Bears is finally over, there's something I've been wanting to say for a while now to all Chicago sports fans. It's hockey season! And it has been for quite some time! Like, since October! More good news: The Blackhawks are among the best in the NHL. Wait, it gets better. Patrick Kane just got named to the U.S Olympic team that's going to Sochi, Russia. Kaner, a quick tip: There's this drink called a Moscow Mule that you must try. Pro tip: There's a lot of vodka in it. Here's another tip: You can also get that drink at any bar in Chicago and I suggest you do. It's so good when it hits your lips like that.

This weekend's NFL playoff slate will not include the Bears. That's OK. I still can bring you great insight into pro football games not involving the hometown team. Here are my predictions and analysis for all 11 games this postseason. Wild-card round Kansas City at Indianapolis The Chiefs rested virtually all of their starters in Week 17 yet still almost won in San Diego. Indy beat KC in their own house 23-7 just two weeks ago. It seems like an easy Colts pick, but sometimes things are tougher than they seem.

Another Bears season is in the books, and all over this city we are lumbering toward consensus on what this team did and did not accomplish, what to look forward to and in what to find despair. It's January in Chicago. We don't have much else to do. I'm upbeat about these Bears. Sure, they finished the year 8-8, losing the NFC North in brutal fashion. But that was one play, and neither the 2013 Bears nor the 2013 Packers looks especially championshippy this year, so it's one play for one extra game.

The Bears' record doesn't lie. When you finish 8-8, some of the stats are going to look outstanding and some are going to be so ugly you might vomit all over your screen. (Please don't, if you can help it.) Maybe the best advice RedEye can give Bears fans is to close your eyes and repeat "only seven months until training camp" in your head. Chicago Tribune contributed to this report.   77.18 percent When the Bears beat Pittsburgh to improve to 3-0, they had a 77.18 percent chance of making the playoffs, according to sportsclubstats.com.

It could have been Chicago's dream come true: Winning a division title at the expense of its hated rival and earning a home playoff game next week.  Yet the city got its worst nightmare: the Packers celebrating yet another huge victory in Chicago, and the Bears going home for the winter.  The soul crusher came with 38 seconds remaining. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, in his first game back from a broken collarbone, found Randall Cobb for a 48-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-8.

The nightmare scenario is upon us. Aaron Rodgers returns Sunday for the Packers, and the Bears will not be able to stop him. That's because the Bears can't stop anybody. My favorite reaction from the Bears stomping by the Eagles was this: "Let's burn the tape. " Yeah, let's burn the tape. Hey, Jay Cutler, when your agent sits down with the Bears and pitches a ridiculous contract, I'd like to say, "Um, sorry Jay, didn't get a chance to review your performance this year. We burned the tapes.

Green Bay all-Earth quarterback Aaron Rodgers is going to play Sunday. Honestly, you knew he would. Destiny and stuff, man. This is a playoff game, and if he sat he'd be downgraded to mere demigod status across Wisconsin. No more free refills on cheese curds OR Spotted Cow. (He would still receive complimentary seasonal snowmobile and jet ski service on over 1,400 lakes statewide.) Maybe Shea McClellin can reprise his one single useful play this season and crack Rodgers in the neck again?
