  • I hope to be around later this afternoon. If not, hold down the fort and I'll see ya in the morning.

  • time to bear down

  • I've figured out why Anderson was playing tackle -- from that position he couldn't over-pursue and lose containment!.

  • Great photo. If only he was still coach.....

  • Bears Bears Bears Bears Bears Bears Bears!!!

  • Can't believe Ditka picked the Steelers. Damn, that hurts.

    Prove him wrong, Bears!!!

  • Beardown! for a Victory today

  • Can't blame Da Coach. he's a "Show Me" guy. Bears were sub-par last week and lost. Steelers were sub-par last week and won.

    And...

    I am AGAIN doing my part for the team. Despite the fact that he STUNK OUT LOUD last week, I have Willie Parker in my fantasy lineup. Feel free to stink it up again, "Fast Willie". Maybe even lay it down a time or 2.

  • Oh, and I did NOT play Greg Olsen this week. This is also strategic as in past seasonsI have at least TWICE benched Brian Westbrook because he was listed as "Questionable" whereupon he promptly scored 3 and then 4 TDs as he sat my bench! I hope you paying attention, "Jersey Greg".

  • All of the talking heads @ ESPN picked against us. We usually do well when that happens.

  • Gawd, enough about Ditka already. The guy was overrated then, and it's so much worse now.

  • Holy shit late second quarter lions up 10-0 over the queens!!!!

  • Has anyone noticed Benson in the GB/CIN "game". That fucking jerk never ran that hard for the Bears....EVER

  • In reply to TomBecker:

    I've been thinking the same thing. Where was this burst and effort in Chicago?

  • In reply to TomBecker:

    or gets arrested

  • In reply to TomBecker:

    Pack oline looks as bad this week as it did last week...and they lost Clifton to injury. Not good.

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    Odom just got his 4th sack. wow.

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    My God! Cedric Benson is killing the Packers. Why didn't he EVER do that for us?

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    Jets are probably going to pull this one out agains the Pats. I like to see that.

    How can ANYONE be a Detroit Lions fan? Or a Raiders fan? Sure the Bears had decades of idiocy, but I never felt such a low low for the Bears. It's just one bad game after another. One bad team after another. One bad decision after another.

    New Orleans looks pretty hot. I think I'm glad we don't play them this year.

    Green Bay's OLine is going to be their Achilles heal. They have given up SIX sacks. If they aren't careful that hot new QB of theirs is going to knocked out.

    I like seeing Kurt Warner perform better.

    It's another interesting week of football.

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    Knox will be the kick returner today apparently...please hold onto the ball, Jackass.

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    Three and out...yippee!

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    HA! Green Bay lost!

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    I sure would like to watch the game sometime, you CBS cocksuckers. I'm watching commercials following the Packers game instead of a LIVE FOOTBALL GAME.

    Sometimes, only sometimes, I hate the NFL.

    try

    http://www.justin.tv/kris6_6_6

    not great but better than nothing.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    if can't watch try

    http://www.justin.tv/kris6_6_6

    not great but better than nothing

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Damn...Knox took a sure catch from Olsen that time, oh well.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    49ers knocked Hasselbeck out with a rib injury. That bodes well for next week.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Wow. What a HOLD they missed on Hunter on that run.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Peanut, offsides on a PAT...winning teams don't make mistakes like this. So far this year, too often, has this team shot itself in the foot.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    D Manning needs to go...I know ben is good but damn at least try!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Well, it wasn't any more a hold than the one on Hunter...oh well. Not getting the breaks today it seems.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Great return and then a hold... What the fuck is going on?

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Not looking good. Defense is gonna need to force a turnover.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    FIRE RON TURNER NOW!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Lovie's cover-to-who? zone is giving PIT a lot of easy quick throws even though the line/LB's are doing pretty well with pressure. It is SO VERY predictable.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    can you say miracle....

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Still alive...offense needs to make it happen now.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    can Brown please stop doing the gator clap?

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    If Brown keeps playing like that he can do whatever the fuck clap he wants.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    I guess helmet to helmet isn't a personal foul...that's twice on Olsen.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    FUCKING FIRE RON TUNER! RUN ON THE 8! FUCK HIM!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Knox! Come on DEFENSE!!!!!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Jesus it only took three and a half quarters to get something good. Nice tie Boys. Now lets see if the d can stand tall and get the ball back for a game winning FG!!! It can happen bears fans.. Let's make some noise and BEAR DOWN!!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    And the offense did make it happen. The TD pass was as good as it gets - great Cutler throw under heavy pressure and perfect route and catch by Knox who absolutely become our #1 receiver - book it!

    I could actually become a believer in this offense instead of worrying what might happen on every play.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    We need a BIG turnover right now!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    CMON Defense....

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    You mean jumping offsides?

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Now we get to watch Lovie's cover 2 zone while PIT calls a mix of runs and quick throws into the open holes in the zone. He does change from the zone AFTER PIT get's to the red zone.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Not good... Come on AB. We need ya big man.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    I hate Ben. I really do.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Damn, this field sucks, good lord. What a disgrace.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Longer cleats anyone... I said that AN HOUR AGO

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    we BETTER WIN THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    YES. COME ON offense.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Cutler start your legacy NOW!!!!!!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    My palms are sweaty......why is this game so nerve wracking?

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Game winning FG... called it 20 mins ago. LET'S GO BEARS!!!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    YESSSSS Tillman in MAN COVERAGE. Well yes he might have face guarded but I didn't see it.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Please Robbie...please...

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    YES!....don't let up..still a tiny bit of time now.

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    Bears Woot

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    YEESSSSS!!!!!! Big win Bears fans...!!! WAsn't pretty but a W is a W.... On to Seattle and go 2-1! BEAR DOWN!!!

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    THEY DID IT!

    Bears Special Teams!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    the football gods awarded us for not squibbing the kick...

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    WOW!! LOVE IT!!!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    OH lord PLeassse

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    YES!

  • In reply to underway:

    Robbie musta been wearing longer cleats.

    (agreed with you throughout the game on that)

  • In reply to underway:

    Could, and i say COULD the bears be better than we thought they were?

  • In reply to underway:

    YES.

  • In reply to underway:

    Johnny Knox - I wanna have your metaphorical Bear baby.

  • In reply to underway:

    UGLY UGLY UGLY UGLY UGLY UGLY UGLY....WIN!!!!!!!!! A "W" for the Bears. Jackass should be the MVP for the offense and Peanut for the defense!

  • In reply to underway:

    I *really* like it that now the opposition will have Kellen Davis and Johnny Knox to consider in their game planning too.

    And how many of you said we have no receivers?

  • In reply to underway:

    My fantasy football team is getting drilled 50 - 106 and I DON'T CARE.

  • In reply to underway:

    Johnny Rocket: meet game ball :)

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    He can gator clap all day if he's making plays.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Just start airing it to knox and hester deep now!! No more fuckin around

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    alright....lets get some swagger about us offense...lets go!!!!!!!

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    I guess I'm not missing much, though. NFL.com makes it look like we're getting carved up.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Yes. We are.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Defense sucked on that drive. This could be a long day.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Damn Daniel Manning

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Leave a comment...that ball. Three and out #2.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    I'm so glad Cutler and Olsen have this great rapport! It's amazing! It's Sharpe and Elway!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    The number of Steeler fans at this game is sickening.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Egh. This game looks like it could get ugly fast. Let's hope the D settles in...

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    defense looks soft....

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    God, I hate Ron Turner.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    PICK

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    It's about time.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Credit Alex with that one

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Indeed. Now, can we get a first down, or two, or three...

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    we need the front four to get pressure... we can afford to blitz and not get to ben... our secondary is toast everytime...

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    cant afford...

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    very soft... D Manning is so poor at dfefending anything. He needs to stay returning kicks. they are going to lose this game if he doesn't get his head out of his ass. W/o 54 , this is going to be a long season. No leadership. nice pick Peanut though. We'll see how fast we go three and out. Sorry everybody but god damn this is so tough to watch. with a pack loss we need this game to gain some ground back. I know it's a long season but if we lose this game we could potentialy be 0-3 by our by.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    I'm wondering if they practice catching the ball at any point during the week

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Helluva catch by Knox

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Cutler NEEDS to make that throw. Terrible.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Adn just like that...

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Cmon Jay.... thats where you earn your pay...we Needed that throw...

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Was Cutler a product of the offense in Denver or does he REALLY have the talent to lead this team? Sure doesn't look like it. He has been trainig in this offense for what...five and a half months? he has to have a real good feeling for this O. he just looks like he is pressing every play.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    sooo lost on defnse...

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    I like seeing K Davis on the field.Yeah he dropped an easy one but I just haven't seen Olsen do a thing. I like Olsen a lot but.......

    WTF Lovie? You send two blitzing players and then play your fucking zone behind it. The blitz should mean no time to throw so cover man to man. Rothlisbum had no time but the zone left 10 yards wide open. Just a really swell call by our "defensive" coordinator.

    This is going to be a long day.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Huh...I didn't know the Steelers had a punter.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    That was so close walle... they could have let that go

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Peterson? This is going to be such a long season. Thank god for Harrison for helping us out.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    when did we become a passing team?

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    thank you AP....lets run the football....

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Wow...that was a helmet to helmet if I ever saw one.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    WOW!!! Big hit on olsen..! He's so out of it..damn

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Where the hell is Forte? Did I miss something?

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    where the heck is forte

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    RT thinks that because we have sid lucman @ QB, who needs the run?

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Nice mix of plays ont this drive though...Still hanging on every throw though.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Jesus Olsen. Show up.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    equipment manager...might be time to change cleats.... need a longer spike... DAMNIT

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Beautiful AP!!!!! great effort...

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Park district just cost us a TD

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    K Davis was open on that play...

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Let's try a slip screen on 3rd...oh wait

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Alright...great catch...way to drive down the field offense.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    See. He CAN make receivers look better than they are.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Nice!!!!!!

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Jesus!! Great TD but double coverage... KD open again. nice FREAKIN drive though boys before the half! LET"S GO BEARS!!

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Like I said....I like seeing K Davis on the field.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Nice drive plus effort for AP on the running an catch

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Way to go D...let's move this ball O.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    So far, Hunter Hillenmeyer is impressive. I think he is better inside than out.

  • I saw him yelling at the line in the first half before they had to take a timout....i was like is that our Hunter?

  • Crap. Shit first drive.

  • Coverage sack...and we'll take it!

  • they are the heart-attack bears redux.

  • There was nothing ugly about that win. It was a hard win against the World Champs.

  • OOne of the guys from Comcast is calling him Johnny Bravo. I kind of like that. That kid could go far with Cutler.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqYCVMx0V30&feature=related

    Seahawks, here we come.

  • Well played boys. This is a team that is gonna be a blast to watch every week

  • Each week, Jay looks like he's auditioning a different receiver.
    Bennett got a ton of targets week one...now Knox and Davis...
    It's going to be awful difficult for defenses if these young guys continue to develop this season.
