Bears-Seahawks Live Game Thread

Bears Game Day Staff

I comment on the Bears. On game days.

FINAL SCORE: Bears 25, Seattle 19

Hello, and welcome to the live game thread for Sunday's Bears-Seahawks contest.

Already this morning we have controversy and it comes in the form of fashion. Seattle's injured QB Matt Hasselbeck, apparently left with nothing else to do but talk about clothes, sent out a tweet that the Seahawks will be wearing new uniforms on Sunday.

Seahawks green uniforms
These jerseys, pictured on the left by a player who thinks he's a surfer, look like they fell right off the nuclear power plant truck.

They're so ugly they may be designed merely to scare Bears players from approaching them.

Whatever their motive, we have to respect Seattle's choice to resemble an XFL franchise.

But enough with the insults, we'll leave that to T.J. Houshmandzadeh, whose trash talk during the week should come up, oh, about 99 times during the broadcast.

To that end, I've invited two Seahawks blogs to join us here on Bears Game Day. They are the SB Nation blog Field Gulls and the Seahawks blog at the Tacoma News Tribune.

Please make their followers feel right at home, and head over to their game threads to share your valuable insights into this matchup between the historic Chicago Bears and the flourescent Seattle Seahawks.

The in-game commentary will take place entirely in the comment field, so please follow along by hitting refresh. If this is your first time here and would like to add your comments, here's where you can sign up free and easy.

I'll be back here about an hour before game time to start the discussion. Talk to you then.

Wearing my Tillman jersey, just about to crack a cold one. LETS GO BEARS!!!!!

Let's do this thing already. Not really a fan of the 3:15 starts.

Bears inactives: Aromashadu, Iglesias, Smith, Moore, Tinoisamoa, Louis, Toeaina, Clark.

Seahawks inactives: Hasselbeck, Wilson, Griffith, Tatupu, Hill, Jones, Locklear, Bennett.

This means Alex Brown is playing, as expected.

Bears to receive, wearing away whites. Seahawks wearing bizarre greens.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

Knox returns it deep and Seahawks also commit a face mask penalty to put Bears at Seattle 40 to start the drive.

is there a way to get this page to autorefresh?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Sorry, not right now from this page. But we should have that.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

First two plays go to Forte. They definitely want to get him going. Total of five yards on those plays. Cutler overthrows Hester by a step in the end zone. It's fourth down. Gould coming out.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Gould misses wide left from 53 yards out.

Bill80 said:

user-pic

That may have been Gould's worst kick ever.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

it was a 53 yarder. I don't think he's ever made one over 50 yds...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seneca Wallace gets Seattle into Bears territory with a 12-yard pass.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seahawks muff a handoff and Wallace has to pick up the fumble and run it out of bounds at the Bears' 37. Third and 19.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

good tackling there, NOT!

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

that was pathetic

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Ugh. Brutal tackling. Julius Jones blasts past Hunter Hillenmeyer and Lance Briggs and gets into the end zone. Absolutely abysmal.

Seahawks 7, Bears 0.

ChicagoKirk said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Nice tackling. It's Lovies Defense alright.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears fail to score first for the third straight game.

ChicagoKirk said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Soon we will hear Lovie saying we get off the bus tackling.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seneca Wallace 4 for 5 for 66 yards and a TD on the opening drive.

Knox brings kick out to the 21.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Cutler's first completion goes to Olsen for 14 yards. Olsen makes a nice move to get the first down.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears first penalty. They jump. Now 2nd and 13.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Cutler converts a 3rd and 3 with a nice pass across the middle to Earl Bennett. First down at Seattle's 39.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Hester takes a reverse 18 yards but Cutler gets called for a low block, a 15-yarder. Ball comes back. I don't know, pretty crappy call.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

wow they look terrible today

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seattle's famed crowd is coming into play. The Bears just jumped for the second time. It's first and 30 from their own 40.

jack lacan said:

user-pic

Is it already time to watch Kaner (the Mugger) and Taser light 'em up? When do pitchers and catchers report? Is there a Chicago team that can win anything?

Did the Bears walk to Seattle?

This team beat the Steelers?

The Seahawks want to give it away.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Beautiful pass to Earl Bennett who is wide open on the right sideline. Bennett gets it to the Seahawks' 18. Bennett a little shaken up but okay.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Cutler gives it away in the red zone. He dumps a pass to Knox, who barely gets a hand on it, then it falls into a Seahawks defenders hands for the INT. That drives kaput.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

OK, to recap. The Bears look like hell.

jack lacan said:

user-pic

Bears excellent on "tip drill" - must try to tip it to a Bear next time. Ok?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Julius Jones is destroying Bears defenders like their Division II players. First down to Bears' 31.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Whoops. Seattle 31.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

that last drive sums up my prediction for this season. Bad overall play, with a few good ones to keep you hanging on, and then the final letdown...Yes, I am a chicago sports fan

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Finally! Peanut Tillman with the huge hit to force the incompletion. And it was Houshmanzadeh, nice.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

yeah, I think I'll just be happy if they shut that guy up!

jack lacan said:

user-pic

What happened to Rahula? --- Where are all those Packer fans?
Great joy in Packerland! Bears romp in second half...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seahawks get the first down on a Wallace pass. A couple of runs get stuffed and now it's 3rd and 4 at Seahawks' 49.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Hey, that was easy. Screen pass goes for a dozen. Into Bears territory.

Bill80 said:

user-pic

Where is the pressure on QB?

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Plenty more game to go, let's not take a trip to Negative Town so soon.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Jones almost gets past tacklers again but Manning brings him down. Another third and four.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seneca Wallace misses badly to Burleson. Would have been a sure TD. Seahawks settle for a field goal. 10-0.

jack lacan said:

user-pic

Come on Bears fans. It is not time to back up the Ford - F-150's yet...that will come after game eight.

Are we watching an N.F.L. replay film or something?

Brian Moore said:

user-pic

Matt Forte out? Is that what I'm hearing?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Nope, he's in there.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears first and 10 at the 20. Forte gains a couple. He's reminding me more and more of Geovany Soto.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Forte's in but Housyourmamma went to the locker room between quarters.

jack lacan said:

user-pic

So the Seahawks got all their points on "miscues" --- We're not losing then.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Sorry, just after field goal, not b/w quarters.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Forte gets six on the final play of the first quarter. It'll be third and 2.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

More of the same. Bears fumble the snap. Punting time.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

okay, it's gotta be Kreutz, I never see that with other teams, but 3 different qbs and the same thing keeps happening?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Maynard shanks it but there are flags on the field.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

still plenty of game left, right Sarah?

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Nearly three full quarters...

jack lacan said:

user-pic

Given the Seahawk uniforms - the entire team can work the third rail on the Brown Line.

jack lacan said:

user-pic

Bears game day "inactives" should have been the complete roster.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Refs butchering this call. I think...inelgible on Seattle that is declined. Holding on Seattle. That one is enforced but, I'm guessing, after the kick. So it's Seattle ball but haven't got a clue where.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Correction: Ineligible on Bears. The rest is correct. I'm butchering this as well. Beer me.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

well, those jerseys look good on the cheerleaders :)

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Hey, Seahawks drop a perfect pass. Momentum changing? We'll see on this third and 10.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Nope. Bears have no rush, Wallace up the middle for 20 yards. Can we get negative now, Sarah?

Kinch said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Defense doesn't look very sharp today!!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bowman nearly picks off a try the end zone, Burleson almost had it too.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears get a stop on third and 2. Seahawks try to make it 13-0 and...it's good.

13-0.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Yeah...this isn't looking good. Gonna make for an exciting comeback, right?

David Wallach said:

user-pic

OK. A few things. Is it cool that Statefarm is dumping millions of dollars to celebrate a guy who never went to college?

2. How many days until pitchers and catchers report?

Kinch said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Bears need some points, they need to get rid of Ron Turner..

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears back to receive their fourth kick so far in 18 minutes of play. If you're scoring at home, that's not a good thing.

Jim Martin said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

I said the Bears would be sorry for not signing Derrick Brooks. At least he would plug the middle.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Knox brings it out to the 28. Bears look incapable of capitalizing on anything today. Cutler's not sharp, Forte's not sharp, defense is not sharp and Seattle's done nothing but take advantage of everything the Bears have given them.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Hey Sarah, have you been a chicago sports fan for very long?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Forte takes a screen pass for five yards.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

And then he takes a loss of two on a rush up the middle. Typical for today.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

nice play by Hester, he's been a bright spot this years

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Hester hangs on for a possible first down. They're going to have to measure.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

First down!

I hate to get excited over that but, hey, that's all we got.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Some combination of John Shoop and Ron Turner is running the Bears' offense.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Been a Chicago sports fan forever. When it comes to our teams, there are so many opportunities to be negative, I try to stay positive until I'm left with no choice.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Cutler gets creamed on third and four, incomplete pass. Maynard out to punt. Somehow, Seahawks get a five-yard return as Bears seem to miss tackles on purpose.

If you've got hope, send it our way. Bears look like a dead team.

Jim Martin said:

sarah - orton & the broncos will be 3-0 while cutler & the bears will be 1-2

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Anthony Adams with a tipped pass. Seahawks are at third and 9.

And finally! Briggs goes in for the sack! Now, let's get a good return Devin.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

there we go. let's see if we can get some momentum after the sack.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Punt rolls to Bears' 34. Cutler needs to make something happne. Can he start throwing downfield a bit?

Bears jump again. That's three this half. First and 15.

sweetrese said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

That's because Ron Turner sucks.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Earl Bennett takes a screen into Seahawks' territory. At the 48 now. Need points on this drive. Badly.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

the broncos' first two wins were a joke. i'm not interested in captain neckbeard or his new team.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Nice. Olsen wide open, takes it to the 24.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

what is with the f=ing replays in this broadcast?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Forte gets creative, sees there's no room on a play up the middle and goes outside for eight yards.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Forte carries just shy of first down. Third and inches.

sweetrese said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Must have ignored Ron. ;)

jwiegner said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

a win is a win - no matter who is qb

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

After a time out, Cutler goes over the middle to Olsen for five yards. It's first and goal now from the 9.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

did you see that? One defender takes out two linemen and Forte gets tripped up, lol!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Forte runs wide right for a loss of two years. It's second and goal from the 11. Cutler's goig to have to fire it in.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

nooooooo

PKinWL said:

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Forte catches it, fumbles at the 1. Seahawks ball. Commence puking.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Brilliant analysis on TV: "Bears challenge because if he was down that would not be a fumble."

Don't get your hopes up, it's inconclusive at best.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

yes, he was down! HE WAS DOWN!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Well, maybe...

jwiegner said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

there's always next year...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

Runner down! Bears at 1!

PKinWL said:

THANK YOU!

SarahSpain said:

YESSSSSSS!!!!!!!! Miracles do happen!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

OK, it's now third and goal.

jack lacan said:

user-pic

Ruling on the field - the Bears have not shown up.
Lovie wins challenge and Bears romp in the second half.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Mus be clean living...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

Forte can't push it over on bull rush up the middle on third down. Bears call time out to think about it on fourth down.

PKinWL said:

Field goal

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears going for it. Hang on to your hats.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

NOOO! Kick it!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Care to retract?

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

YES! YES!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

TOUCHDOWN! Cutler to Olsen, who is wide open. He shovels it into the end zone for the TD.

13-7.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

It's a one touchdown game with a whole half to play. Let's do this thing.

sweetrese said:

Finally!

Hello guys!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

What up, parrotsnest. Friend or foe?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Wallace across the middle for first down. At Bears' 44.

atlbear said:

user-pic

Cutler manned up on that TD play. Knew his was gonna pay. Love it

atlbear said:

user-pic

great Bowman hurt again

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

More missed tackles on Jones, who bulls his way to the 23.

Carlson drops an easy pass. :40 left. 2nd and 10

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Idonije stops a screen pass for a loss of 1. Seattle calls time out with :27 left. Third and 11.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Jones gets a couple, Seahawks letting clock run down and will try a 43-yard FG.

atlbear said:

user-pic

can't we tackle dammit?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

Nope, misses wide left and there's still :09 left.

Jim Mora will be Alone With Rome on Monday.

NorthsideMike said:

user-pic

Hey, just got off work to see the game. How do we look?

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

All things considered, I'll take a one TD deficit heading into the second half. We haven't executed on offense, defense or special teams so things could be a whole lot worse.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Forte for no gain, the half ends at 13-7.

How are the Bears even in this? Reminds me of last week a lot except the Bears deserved to be in it against Pittsburgh.

Velocity4 said:

user-pic

[switches from beer to whiskey]

I'm doing my part

atlbear said:

user-pic

lucky to be only down 6

NorthsideMike said:

user-pic

I'm thinking Cutler comes up big today. Seattle's CBs don't have the great closing speed; Cutler's storng arm should allow him to zip some balls in there.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

how has cutler done, or are he and his still not on the same page....

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

He's been...uninteresting. They're still not letting him go downfield. The INT was his fault so maybe that's the right move.

parrotsnest said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

This game is UGLY. I'm a friend btw ;)

Lifelong Broncos fan converted Bears fan.. well Cutler fan, but hey, I guess I can't pick the team he's on right now. :D

The O line is looking like the O line I saw in training camp, turrible. :\

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Saw parrot...bird...Seahwaks. I'm a little defensive.

Anyway, welcome.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

not letting him go downfield. is this one of those kyle orton-internship-training-wheel things?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Combo. Cutler can be erratic and try to do too much when he's down. Plus, Bears just don't have the talent at WR.

parrotsnest said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

I disagree, Cutler makes receivers. He's done it w/ Royal and Marshall and he'll do it with Knox.

He can be erratic, yes, but he is as good at coming back from behind as anyone in the league, when allowed to put up yards. We'll see how the 2nd half goes, if adjustments are made. I had no clue this Ron Turner guy was this clueless before. :\

parrotsnest said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

The thing about that pick, was that it was uber short! You have Devin Hester AND Johnny Knox and you wont run a fly route?! Come on Turner, you don't have Orton throwing the balls anymore.. act like it.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

so, you think the Bears make any adjustments?

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

for the 2nd half, that is?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

It works to be patient at home, but I don't know if they can sit back and wait for FG's to be missed like last week. They've got to get their offense going and get some turnovers. Seahawks had three scores, should have had four.

jack lacan said:

user-pic


The Bears will not be the first team to lose to the Detroit Lions. Lions have prayer session in locker room following victory - God is very pleased at todays offensive performance.

Griff said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Yes, well GOD is often busy,,,

jack lacan said:

user-pic


Velocity4 remember to drink from the large size whiskey bottle. It's going to be a long second half.

NorthsideMike said:

user-pic

Lovie's gotta let Cutler through down field. If we wanted to play conservative we should have kept Orton and the picks. Cutler's got the gun. Let's let him use it.

jack lacan said:

user-pic

Suzie Spain - is that like Dinah Denmark?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

2nd half underway. Seahawks bring kick out to own 28.

Ball at Seattle 42. Forte goes to the right for seven yards. This game is getting more and more interesting.

SarahSpain said:

There we go! Look downfield to our speed guys.

Cutler to Hester over the middle for 22 yards. First and 10 at the 13.

I better not get screwed on this.. I'm having no Fantasy luck today :\

but yes.. THAT is why I dropped Bennett for Knox this week XD

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seattle challenging Knox was out of bounds before he touched the pylon. Should be okay for Bears.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Strange Oregon State Beavers: Chad Johnson changes his name to Ochocinco, but Houshmanzadeh doesn't change his. Shoulda been the other way around...

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

is this the same team from the 1st half?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

So on the play... Knox caught it around the five yard line and deked the defender out of his socks to get into the end zone. The guys has moves.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Challenge denied. Bears touchdown!

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

'cus I like this team much better!

jack lacan said:

user-pic


Ruling on the field - Seahawks will change jerseys if game goes into overtime. They have Day-Glo orange as well.

atlbear said:

user-pic

Knox is awesome- what a move

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

this is more like it. lovin' that it was Houz's fumble that led to the td.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Twas perfect.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

I'm not surprised at the adjustments or the fact they made them. I think they've done that fairly well.

Eddie Royal who?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seattle returns kick to own 26.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Oh, bad break. Bears got a sack but also got a hand on his face mask. It was an accident, crap call by the ref.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Retract that statement. Dangerous face mask. Good call.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

What's the poop with Alex Brown? Any idea, or did i miss post?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Haven't heard anything.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

it doesn't matter if it's an accident, FM is always a 15 yd penalty

Bears Game Day Staff said:

Another face mask on the Bears. Dammit. They're into Bears territory on face mask penalties. First down at Bears' 45.

$@#% penalties are killing us.

parrotsnest said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

So do they practice chicken sacrifice in Chicago? 'cause they sure have a way of making kickers miss..

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

what's up with all the missed FG's against our Bears? I'm not complainin' but it's a bit unusual, don't ya think?

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Shankapotamus! Lovin' the opposing kickers the last two weeks!!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Wow, he misses it again! Maybe the Bears game plan does include missed field goals.

That's three missed field goals on that side of the field, all wide left. Bears can't need an FG to win the game at the end. Just sayin'.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Deion Branch, Edgerrin James - sounds like the NFL equivalent of Cash for Clunkers. Joniak just had a cow...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Hey, love that you guys are adding user pics. Sure beats that damn pylon doesn't it?

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

The life of a kicker is a lonely one. 'Specially when your name is Olindo.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears take over at own 24. Two quick plays and it's now now 3rd and 6.

Ghost of Halas said:

user-pic

Bears excel at making kickers miss.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Cutler finally goes downfield but he Knox isn't open and would have been out of bounds if he caught it.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Has anyone blogged recently on cnnsi.com? Lotsa Viqueen fans. My God, those people are insufferable,

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Maynard gets off a nice boot, kick returner makes a foolhardy move to let it roll and it does...to Seattle's 5.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

3rd and 4, not really the time to go deep, imo, more of a possession down

Velocity4 said:

user-pic

The default user pic should of been artificial turf

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

INTERCEPTION! YES YES YES!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Briggs with the interception!

Ghost of Halas said:

user-pic

Lance playing big today.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Now that's what I call good field position!!

Velocity4 said:

user-pic

now this is getting good

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

First and 10 at the Seattle 14. Forte takes it on first down for two.

parrotsnest said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

wow.. run up the middle w/ Forte on 1st down.. shocking!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Cutler to Olsen for a few. 3rd and 4.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Cutler stripped but the Bears recover at the 19. Gould coming on.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

1st down near the 14 and you end up kicking the fg? weak sauce.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

It seems like all season, whenever we use playaction we always get 5-6 yds, if Turner would use it more, we'd score more points!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Gould is perfect.

Bears 17-13.

parrotsnest said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

sans the missed FG in the first half?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Yeah, meant he split the uprights.

bmcd said:

user-pic

Should have gotten 7 there!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seahawks return it to the 20. Jones for three yards on first down.

Is Hillenmeyer in? He's been knocked around.

parrotsnest said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Ron Turner.. wow..

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Jones gets a first down. Ball at Seahawks 39.

Briggs destroys Jones on first down. Roach in for Hillenmeyer.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Seahawks get into Bears territory on reception to Burleson. First and 10 at Bears '45.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Afalava. Go Beavs. He'll knock out a few mouth protectors in his rookie season. Good player.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Jones wrapped up in backfield. Third and 11. Need a stop as third quarter has two minutes left.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Little small in stature, tho...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Houshmanzadeh with the first down catch to Bears' 33. On first down, Seahawks get to 30. 2nd and 7 coming up.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

False start on Seattle. Just the third penalty on Seahawks today.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears just blew it. Wallace scramblinng, tosses up a sure INT. But Houshmanzadeh jumps in over Bears' DBs to steal it. Horrible.

Dan in San Fran said:

user-pic

Don't let the mouth beat us

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Good grief - another linebacker lost?

Velocity4 said:

user-pic

@#$$%! can we not cover anyone? arghhhh!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Third quarter ends. Bears 17, Seattle 13. Seahawks have 2nd and 10 at Bears' 21.

Dan in San Fran said:

user-pic

Can't let the mouth beat us

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

So here's this: I'm done counting the Bears out. They don't quit, and you have to give Lovie credit for that.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

another 3rd and long, we don't have much luck against those

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

thanks goodness

PKinWL said:

...that we stopped 'em this time, that is

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Incomplete pass, now 3rd and 10. Bears get tip on the next play, Seattle comes in for a FG.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Mare hits it through and it's 17-16.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

We won't lose to these recycled, renewable retreads from the northwest. It won't happen.

maru said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

where can I get updates? What happened to the Indaian dude that used to cover the games he rocked...
this sucks... IS there any real tine internet coverage?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

Hi, cheery person.

Velocity4 said:

I'll cover it for you...commercial time now

PKinWL said:

Okay Bears, time to drive a nail into the coffin with a TD

parrotsnest said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

maru, atdhe.net

Their kick has a leg on him.. taking Knox out of the special teams :(

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

go to bears site and listen to radio feed of game. joniak and thayer. listen to jeff have an aneurism or whetever.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears first and 10 at own 20.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

did anyone answer the question about Rahula? where did he go? good man.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Yes, a very good man. He's no longer with the Tribune.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Wolfe with three on first down, takes it over the middle for six on second down. Forte's fine. Just a rest, apparently.

Dan in San Fran said:

user-pic

What is going on with our running game?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Wolfe can't get the first down, Bears to punt.

Ghost of Halas said:

user-pic

Three straight handoffs to Wolfe....wtf?

Velocity4 said:

user-pic

Wow...that's all I have now

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

that was pathetic...TURNER, CALL SOME PLAYACTION! that would have been perffect there

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears get good coverage, Seahawks take over with no return at own 18.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

WTF kind of play calling was that?

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

3rd & 1. Annoying. Thayer sez he needed to follow Garza.

sweetrese said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Ron Turner......no!!!!

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

seriously, almost every time we've used playaction this year it's been at least 5 or 6 yds. Remember our big plays last week? Yup, playaction...

maru said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

sorry for being negative..I am in claifornia and missing the bears.
getting real slow updates from the net herre..the Chicago trib used to have an excellent blogger who covered the games.

thiss blog is nice but....
thanks tho

Dan in San Fran said:

I am in California also. Had to spring for Direct TV to catch the Bears. I do miss Rahula Strohl's Tribune blog

atlbear said:

user-pic

why the heck are we playing that useless half-man?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Butler makes an 8-yard grab. 2nd and 2.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

where are you, maru? huntington beach here.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears stuff run on second down. On third and one they go for the reverse but the Bears...are...there! Loss of 8. Seattle to punt with 11 minutes left.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

C'mon now Bears! C'mon Lovie/Turner, play to win, don't play not to lose

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Hester tries to return 61-yard punt but he's stuffed after five yards. He gets stripped of the ball but it goes way out of boundes. Bears take over at own 28.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

I gotta say, DH is looking more like a real receiver every day.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Coupla runs from Wolfe, coupla dink & dunks to TE's, launch the Knox missle - that should take care of this game...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Hester with the nine-yard catch. On 2nd and 1 Forte goes up the middle for five. Bears to the 45.

maru said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Forte loses three on first down.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

How bout a 15-20 yarder to Olsen here...

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

heard "Matt Forte" and "First Down" mentioned just now...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Forte's catch gets them three. On 3rd and 9 Cutler is stripped and Seahawks recover at the Bears' 38. Just under nine minutes left.

Dan in San Fran said:

user-pic

The Bears line is playing horribly, can't run block, can't pass block

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

morgan hill - Bay Area? - think there's a BART stop there...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears' D is stepping up. Can't run on 'em now. Two yards on first down. On 2nd and 8 Burleson gets seven yards on a slant. Brings up 3rd and 1.

Ghost of Halas said:

user-pic

Where are the slants that were working so well for the Bears last week?

sweetrese said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Ron-Tarded strikes again.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

I would agree with your earlier comment, Game Day: regardless of what happens here, can't count Bears out. Big change from past few years.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Jonees gets the first down with a second effort. On first and 10, Bears get a three-yard loss. On second down, Houshmanzadeh gets two back. It's 3rd and 11.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Look at that--Lovie gets aggressive! No prevent D b.s. and we force the near-interception.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

OHHH! Near interception by Afalavah. FG try coming up from 45 yards out.

chicagospark said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

nice defense to hold em to a fg. need points. who is going to fire turner?

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

FG is good, I guess you can only rely on luck for so long...

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Geez. How surprised was Mare's teammate on that made FG?

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

This one's good. Mare puts the Seahawks up 19-17 with five minutes left.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Knox returns it to the 27. Bears take over with 5:03 on the clock.

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Not to worry. They'll win. Someone tell Turner he has an important phone call to pull him away for good measure, though...

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Cutler with a risky flip to Forte gets four yards. Scarrrry.

Dan in San Fran said:

user-pic

The O-line better figure out the powerhouse seatle d-line

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bears sure feel like they can run. Forte up the middle to the 45. Four minutes left.

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Nice smart play by Bennett there protecting the ball and being patient.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Bennett gets seven on first down, gets into Seattle territory at the 48. On second donw, Peterson gets a first down to the 39.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Two minute warning arrives: Bears on the Seattle 37. 2nd and 8 coming up.

Griff said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

This is ABSOLUTELY it. Win or lose today, Turner HAS GOT to be fired. This Schmuck is just such a retard when it comes to play calling, I can't believe we can even be IN the game let alone win it. We should be blowing teams like the Seahawks out by 20 or 30 points, and instead we hang on by our fingernails. All I can say is "Turner, you S*CK...BIG TIME!"

parrotsnest said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

So Turner the Genius finally puts in Peterson. ABOUT TIME!

atlbear said:

user-pic

OAP baby!

sweetrese said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Yeah, I agree. No more ron-turnovers.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

Hester in the end zone! But a flag.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Devin Hester!!!

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Cutler can always do a 'McMahon' and do his own thing at the line...

Velocity4 said:

user-pic

yes yes yes cutler to hester

Ghost of Halas said:

user-pic

That's the ticket!

SarahSpain said:

user-pic

Oh hellllllllll yes. Hester looking like a g.d. pro bowl receiver on that play.

sweetrese said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

I love Devin Hester.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

user-pic

On Seattle! Bears go up 23-19, will go for two.

Hester caught it at the 30 and two Seattle defenders knocked each other out, he had a free run for the TD.

Dan in San Fran said:

user-pic

Great time to come alive, Bears!

LeftBrain said:

user-pic

Joniak almost blew another gasket. Only the flag saved him.

PKinWL said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

I said it back in the 1st qtr, I'll say it again, Hester has truly been a bright spot this year, he's been playing really well!

Bears Game Day Staff said:

Bennett catches the two-point conversion. Bears 25, Seattle 19.

1:52 left.

LeftBrain said:

I can't speak for the rest of you, but I am snapping the celebratory brew now.

Seattle at own 20 after touchback. Wallace's first pass hits Bears DB in the back. 2nd and 10.

this is kinda reminding me of the falcons game last year, not covering the sidelines, letting 'em get out of bounds to stop the clock

LeftBrain said:

Back to my bottle of the Milwaukee '09 vintage

Bears Game Day Staff said:

Bears stop a short pass and take over on downs. Cutler takes a knee, and the Bears are now 2-1.

Ladies and gentlemen, NOW you can drink LeftBrain.

Thanks. Sorry. I won't do that again....

great gutsy comeback. Hester showed a lot today

So glad Lovie had the cojones to put on the pressure instead of falling back into prevent. That's the way you win a game!

ChicagoKirk said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Thrilled by the win but why so close what do the Bears want to dominate another team (even a little) Seattle was decimated with injuries do we want to play other teams favorite High School???

Our secondary still sux. And like Pit a bunch of missed FGs? Do the BEars want to rely on the football gods for GIFTS or do they want to learn how to tackle and run the ball?

Griff said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Two words for ya...Ron Turner.

ChicagoKirk said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

You think we can make the playoffs and the super bowl if we play teams that are good AND healthy? Forget about it.

Bears Game Day Staff said:

Hey everybody, thanks for joining us here for Bears Game Day. We're here every week so come back again.

Cheers.
