Today on Chicago Sports HQ Chatter, we focus on more of the pro sports as things are really starting to pick up.

With the NFL Conference championships now set, Cole and I look back at what happened last week and what we thought of the play. Who stands the best chance to make it to the Superbowl, and what a Patrick Mahomes less Chiefs team could look like.

Don't look now, but MLB Free agency is happening at a frantic pace and is more exciting than in years past. As more and more former Cubs are picked up on cheap deals... what does that say about the Cubs and how they valued the players on their roster?

The Chicago Bulls continue to impress, especially on the offensive end, to earn their best start in four years.

They currently sit in the final playoff spot and are only going to get better. Cole and look at how much has changed in the Chicago basketball side of things this season and what is to come. Does this team resemble the 2009 squad that made life miserable for the Boston Celtics? Their rosters are similar, and they play a similar style of ball.

With the NHL finally underway, the Blackhawks are four games in. Unfortunately, those four games have been a struggle as Chicago is missing lots of key pieces from last year's group.

What needs to happen for the Blackhawks to right the ship, and where does the team go from here?

To close out the show, we look at the college basketball landscape and where DePaul, Notre Dame, Northwestern, and Illinois fit right now. What are their chances to make the NCAA tourney, and does the committee look at quality wins over the number of wins this season?
