    I just went on a (slightly guinness-fueled) rant about this exact topic (well, not Joe Buck) while tailgating yesterday. Fantasy football skews people's perception of actual football. They think of team strengths in terms of how many fantasy points they can get, and not in terms of actual results on the field. Football is a team game that is much more nuanced and complex than who you should start in the flex this week.

    Clarification: I don't mean to say that everyone who plays fantasy football is guilty of this; just that some are.

    Completely agree with you. I find myself a pretty knowledgeable football fan, and have always enjoyed playing fantasy football, but the last two years I have gotten my friends into playing fantasy football and watching football with them is now almost unbearable. i do not check my scores till the end of games because I like to enjoy the games. But having my packer friend say, "shit the vikings scored, well at least it was AP, hes on my fantasy team," is fucking infuriating. Also still pissed about a tie!
    you are soooooooo good lookin

    This has gotten bad for me as well. I often don't even know which teams have won at the end of the day, but I do know which players have performed well.

    And, even so, you don't always know which players performed well just by looking at fantasy stats. Especially quarterbacks, or really any player who gets stats in garbage time.

    One of my biggest pet peeves is watching games at a bar, and having to hear people root for their fantasy teams and players. When a Chicago Bears player scores a touchdown, I have to hear shit like "Oh man, Cutler should've thrown to Brandon Marshall. He's on my fantasy team." I don't give a shit. And, no, Cutler should not have thrown it to Marshall. He should've thrown it to the guy who was open in the end zone, like he just did. Cocksucker.

    What are your thoughts on Josh McCown, Tommy? Should there be a QB controversy in Chicago? Yesterday's game put me solidly in McCown's corner. Week after week he has been consistent and he's shown me enough to want him to lead the rest of the season.

    McCown has done a fine job, but I'd rather have Cutler in there. I have no idea why it takes 3 good games by McCown for people to forget all of the good shit Cutler has done to help the Bears win games over the past 3+ years. McCown has done well, but Cutler routinely has as good or better games. Plus, Cutler often extends drives with his legs. So, no, there shouldn't be a QB controversy in Chicago. But I think our management and fanbase might be dumb enough to force one on everybody.

    I also think our management might be dumb enough to not re-sign Cutler, and move forward with some retread like Josh Freeman or Matt Flynn. If they don't re-sign Cutler, Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson isn't all of a sudden going to walk into Halas Hall.

    Going back to the original question, it doesn't matter who the QB is when our defense is just so shitty. I know injuries have killed the defensive line, but the safeties are a major concern. I would be pissed if Chris Conte is starting next year, and Major Wright isn't much better. Also, Julius Peppers seemed to age 10 years in the off-season and Shea McClellin has been a bust. Who would've thought that Brian Urlacher not coming back would be the least of our defensive concerns this season?

    Yep, this is my main problem with it as well. I miss bullshitting in a bar about, you know, the actual game. Even if I played fantasy I would give absolutely zero fucks about how some stranger's team is doing. I've also noticed people rooting AGAINST their own team because of fantasy implications. Meh.

    I watch the Steelers without thinking about fantasy. I watch the rest of the AFC North without thinking about fantasy. Outside of that I don't give a shit about any of the NFL teams and fantasy football makes these games watchable for me. It makes the league as a whole more interesting, but it never interferes with my real football rooting interests.
    This ain't no middle of the mall shit.

    God damn it I knew I was one of the dumb fucking fans. Your post might have brought me back to reality though. Obviously they have a nice problem in the QB department. The real problems are with defense.

    Both football and fantasy football were a lot more enjoyable when it was just a small percentage of fans that had a team. I used to enjoy talking fantasy with people because I'm a football nerd and anyone interested in fantasy sports usually was as well. Now that everyone has a team it's become insufferable and unless you're in my league I don't care who's on your team, what your record is or how many goddamn field goals your kicker needs to seal your victory.

    This is precisely why I've never had an interest in fantasy football. I grew up learning how to bet the spreads watching football with my grandfather, for me fantasy kills all of that excitement.

    You also have to consider that McCown is 34-years old. So, what, are the Bears just going to give up on Cutler for someone who wouldn't even be the quarterback of the future? It would be incredibly short-sighted to play McCown ahead of Cutler when Cutler is healthy, but it's the Bears so I would be shocked if they didn't fuck this up. Settling for guys like McCown is precisely why the franchise has been starving for a good quarterback for almost my entire life.

    You're not a dumb fucking fan, Faxino, you're just a prisoner of the moment. It happens. Just get some perspective and we'll move past this.

    Rank the divisions! Everyone's had their bye week and let's assume SF doesn't pull a Peyton Manning and blow a large lead.

    NFC East: 19 wins
    NFC North: 20 (counting the tie as 1/2 a win for each of GB and Minn)
    NFC South: 22
    NFC West: 29

    AFC East: 22
    AFC North: 21
    AFC South: 16
    AFC West: 27

    Agreed 100%. I mean I still have a couple teams but that is just because it's just with friends that I have done it with for a long time now. Fuck even my sister who hates and knows nothing about football is in an all girl league with other girls that know nothing about football, except two of them. My sister doesn't watch the games but the few Sundays I have been with her she is checking her phone every 10 mins to see how her team is doing. Fuck I don't even have the app on my phone or check every ten minutes. Just once after the early games and then again after the later games.
