The presents have been wrapped, unwrapped and reboxed. Let's get back on the gridiron.

It should be a fun Week 17. Most of the good teams have something to play for. Most of my fantasy leagues are completed, which makes me a little sad. I never have a problem using Week 17. It's just another puzzle to figure out.

The Chicago/Philly beatdown from Week 16 has so many spillovers. We know not to take any outlier performance, good or bad, too seriously. Philly surely can't be *that* good. Chicago, surely, can't be that bad. So how do we address them going into must-have games?

The Eagles and Packers are both favored on the road. Are the Packers doing the right thing with Aaron Rodgers? Heck, are the Bears doing the right thing playing Jay Cutler over Faustian Pact Josh McCown? And how bad are Dallas's chances with Tony Romo expected out?

Those are the main courses we have to talk about. Feel free to add any side dishes you want. Can we write off Seattle's hiccup? Is there any recalibration due the Colts or Patriots? Does it bother you Arizona might miss the playoffs?

Boxing Breakfast is served.
