Anarchy From Without, Or From Within.....

Day-by-day I read more and more "negative" articles about Jay Cutler, the Bears front office, Lovie Smith (on how he handled Cutler's injury), tweets from current and former players, and then how Chicagoans are "wimps" just like Cutler (see Tribune article).  Damn, can it get any worst?

If I understand things correctly, I gather that a "blog" is supposed to be a place where the writer (or writers) get to express themselves "unabated".  So with that said, I'm just going to let-er RIP!!!

I can't believe just how "bad" things have gotten in Chicago surrounding the team that I've loved for 40 years now.  I can't believe that the show Bill & I aired the week before our NFC championship game against GB, the chat room was full.  However, after we lost only one Bear fan showed up.  THIS IS A DISGRACE TO SAY THE LEAST.....

I've only come to this conclusion "at-this-time", that the McCaskey's have "truly" ran this franchise into the ground (as I foresaw back in 85').  We have not won since we had George Halas's last coaching hire at the helm. Everyone who has come after Mike Ditka has fallen short, or just fell flat-on-their-faces.  It is no wonder that our fan-base is apathetic, cynical, rude-to-each-other, and have become nothing more than a herd of "fair-weather-fans"?

Speak for yourself Bear fans!  I can remember (during 1980 & 81) doing business with Bear Fans who were "true-navy-blue", and supported the Bears even during the "lean-years".  Now, I've noticed that mostly what we have are "band-wagon" fans from 1985.  You know, John M. Crist (Bear Report Editor & Chief) was "RIGHT".  All we are left with is a fan base that just can't let go of the 85' Bears.

Yes, I love that team with all of my "heart & soul", but I can also say that I've bled "navy-blue-and-orange" even during the years of Abe Gibron, Bobby Douglas, Gary Huff, Bo Rather, Virgil Livers, Jack Pardee, Bob Avellini, Neil Armstrong, Vince Evans, and more.  WHERE WERE SOME OF YOU??????

What I also find amazing is how the 1985 team despite all of their inner-turmoil, manage to win a SB Championship, and nearly go undefeated at that.  The answer? They were able to deal with their respective troubles from "within", but they did not have to deal with a "fragmented" fan-base from without.

Think about-it Chicago!  Have we degenerated to the point that we only show up when things are "good", only to check-out when things get bad???  No wonder we wound-up with a franchise QB who does the same......

If the shoe fits.........

    See, I wasn't imagining or hallucinating. We have Bear Fans with "issues". It's true and passionate fans like us Bobo who will put this organization's feet-to-the-fire as often as needed. What was mentioned regarding this regime's focus on "profits only" was VERY-TRUE. The McCaskey's treat the team like a "cash-cow", instead of an entity that should represent the "great" city of Chicago and it's great people in a positive way. We need new ownership PERIOD. Nonetheless (like you) I'm a Bear Fan "for-life"...

    Agreed Gary!
    Now, if this organization is serious about winning, they'll only have to look 3 hours North to see what they'll have to do in order to compete (As much as that pain's me to say!). The positive is, after Peppers got to Rogers, they whole complexion of the game changed, and with the RIGHT calls offensively, and smart play on 3rd dwn, and a smart T.O. on that last 4th down play, the Chicago Bears might be playing in this Super Bowl! All 3 games were close, and the Bears DEFINATELY are in the same conversation with the Cheese-heads...they'll only have to tweak a few weak areas in the "O" line, and DB-SS position...
    Gary, keep us fan's informed! Looking foward to your next article!
