  • Question to ponder:

    Notre Dame's administration is going to fork over $10M to buy Charlie Weiss' contract out and move on.

    Strangely, that's about the amount the McCaskey's would have to give Lovie to send him and his outdated Tampa2 to O'Hare with his bags packed.

    Does this mean that Notre Dame values a winning tradition more than the Bears do?

    Discuss.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Yes. Yes it does.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Joseph -

    I agree Mike Smith would be an awesome coach...but I would like to see the Bears pursue Jim Harbaugh, who is known for coaching up his players @ Stanford.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    What? I thought football season was over now...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I repeat myself but someone needs to explain to me how there were enough stupid penalties and other flat out basic mistakes to make Thursday night look like preseason game #1?

    Nevermind.

    9 games into a season, that kind of performance speaks for itself.

    Regarding former bear QB, Jim Harbaugh.
    Wow! Was it fun to see someone lay the wood to Pete Carroll's boys, again (Oregon ran their as out of the stadium 2 weeks ago)! AND, when Stanford scored to make it 48-21 late in the 4th quarter, the above mentioned Mr. Harbaugh went for TWO to try and make it an even 50 !!! They didn'tdidn't get it there, but an interception presented another opportunity so when the 2nd team got the ball close again, he put his #1 back, Toby Gerheart, back in the game to get his 3rd TD of the day and put them over the half-century mark instead of just running out the clock.

    Too bad U of Arizona tripped over itself at Cal last night.

    Notre Dame should be calling Harbaugh. Urban Meyer turned down The Fighting Irish job because they refused to alter admission standards for some guys he wanted to recruit. Stanford's academics are 2nd to none so Harbaugh must know SOMETHING about recruiting. He has a stud FB and QB (Resdshirt freshman, Andrew Luck) and Stanford's offensive line has allowed 6 sacks all season. They are ALL underclassman.
    Wonder who THEIR O-line coach is?

    Another strike against the golden domers: I BELIEVE Notre Dame still does NOT allow redshirting and that hurts in this day & age.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Of course, there can be no doubt that MICHIGAN is looking at Wolverine alum Harbaugh as well.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    What a year, I'm reduced to rooting for teams I hate to lose for almost 8 weeks. Go Lions! Go Washington.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    You know what's funny? If....if....if...the Falcons continue to lose to the Panthers and the Eagles lose to San Diego on the road, the Bears will be a game out of the wildcard race.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    That is funny.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    Funny or sad?

    We all know the Bears are not a playoff team, the fact they would even be considered a contestant in a playoff race goes to show how bad the NFC is again this year.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    Hard to say that, Shady. Last year the worst team in the league in December went to the Super Bowl. And this whole "the NFC is bad" thing is such an arbitrary argument.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    The Cardinals also never had a losing record.

    The Bears had 2 games now to prove they actually care about the season, and both times they've failed miserably. That's all I need to know.

    I'll give you credit for trying to keep hope alive, but if you actually think the Bears deserve to be playing football in January, like Albert said, you're dreaming.

    The goal for this season has changed from making th playoffs to not getting Jay Cutler killed. It's time the Bears commit to the run no matter how ugly it might be to ensure they keep #6 out of the ER.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Like a wise man once said, "deserve's got nothing to do with it."
    I'll take us sneaking into the playoffs, but hell, I'd also take us not getting destroyed by the Eagles next week. I'll also be happy to finish the season with J-Cut not having post-concussive disorder.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    Denver losing feels good. Too bad that's what we've got now.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    that's the NFL for you.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    the teams we need to lose keep losing. this is going to be deja vu all over again, missing the playoffs by not determining our own destiny while other teams do EVERYTHING they can to allow us to go to the playoffs. i'm still cheering like it going to happen but we'll see.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Come on Dallas, kick Green Bay's ass. I want all my friends at the game to be pissed off afterward. After all, misery loves company.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Oh, no!!

    THIS week's "powerhouse" NFC East team, the Cowbums, spent the afternoon getting shut out in Green Bay, recovering just in time to register a consolation TD with :38 to play.

    LAST week's "powerhouse" NFC East team, the Eagles, laid an egg in San Diego.

    What WILL the 4-Letter network ever do?

    Hmmm. Apparently, they know how to make adjustments that actually make a difference in Green Bay because we now have 3rd place in the division all to ourselves.

    And please, folks, no comments / musings / dreaming about "wild card" or "playoffs" as long as we are below .500.

    Right now the Eagles are looking at the schedule and thinking... "Chicago? this is JUST what the doctor ordered!"

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I want our team in the playoffs always, but if it happens by some kind of miracle, it means that Lovie and Ronnie will be wearing it like a badge of "I told you we were a good team and you fans don't know what your talking about". Then it means more mediocrity for the future. Unless something bad happens, then it seems we will never be able to right this ship.

  • In reply to shonbear:

    Mediocrity is good business.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Troy Polamalu goes out again - Steelers lose again.
    Probabaly just a COINCIDENCE.

    Speaking of "Hair" Polamalu, do you think he could POSSIBLY come across as any more EFFEMINATE in those TV and Radio spots for HEAD & SHOULDERS SHAMPOO? Just sayin'.

    Speculation has begun that in light of Cedric benson's hip injury, the Bengals will now be interested erstwhile Chief, Larry Johnson.

    Wonder what Johnson thinks of those Polamalu commercials?

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    That's funny.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I'm thinking we are looking at an 8-8 record right now with the remaining games on our schedule.

    ESPN ran some stuff on the scroll that is a lot of complaining about our coaching as how I gather it.

    This may be a good thing. Now the Bears will win a few to provide the ever lovin usual false hope moment for us for the remainder of the season. Creating posts from Jeff on Now is the time and all that ect ect...

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Dear Denver fans-
    Eat a....well, you already know what I'm going to say so I won't spoil it.
    Congratulations on your very OWN 3 game losing streak, you brie-chewing elitist front-runners.

    Sincerely,
    MikeBrownHadaPosse

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Mike Brown had a posse today! Another game winning INT for KC.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Word - I said we gave up on him too soon. We could have used him to keep the D from imploding this year.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Wow the Colts look like the Bears right now.
    -Can't run the ball (check)
    -Can't protect the quarterback (check)
    -Secondary getting slicked up (check)
    -Defense can't get a pass rush or slow down the run (check)

    I would take that if the Bears were undefeated like the Colts

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    I take it all back, the Colts moved down the field with ease on that drive.... You know why? In game coaching adjustments. They didn't keep trying the same shit over and over and continue to fail.

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    Coaching adjustments? What are these adjustments you speak of? Here in the land of John Shoop and Wrong Turner, we have forgotten the day when we saw such things. Only the elders know of what you speak.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    Benson and Orton both hurt. Weird.

  • Good picture. Quite apropo.
