Brett Favre and Jay Cutler have been the equivalent of two ships passing in the night this season. Or in Cutler's case, a ship intercepted, boarded, pilfered and then scuttled. As the Vikings visit the Bears tonight (ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET), one team is playing for a shot at home-field advantage. The other has Cutler at quarterback. Check how the two quarterbacks have fared this season in SportsNation's ratings.

Kevin, what did you thinkk of the comments made by Olin Kruetz after the Ravens game? Seemed to me like he was targeting Jerry Angelo. Your thoughts? Do you believe Lovie is gone 2 weeks from now?

Yeah, I wasn't sure if those were directed at Angelo or to ownership. Maybe hoping the owners open their wallets to get things fixed in the offseason. As for Smith, I think the Bears are going to have to give it a lot of thought. It would be hard to establish any offseason marketing momentum if the Bears continue their collapse through the end of the season. Full transcript | NFC North blog

In an ironic twist of events, Favre looks like the smarter guy in Minnesota this week. He didn't want to come out of the game last week, because he wanted to win it (obviously didn't work out, but he wasn't going to just give away the game by sitting). This week the Saints lose, meaning if the Vikings HAD won the game last week, Minnesota would be sitting in the driver's seat for home field advantage in the NFC right now.

Seems like Min and NO fans think that it is a lock that they will meet in the NFC championship. I wouldn't count out Philly and Arizona.
