Bears vs. Packers Gameday Thread

dick_butkus.jpg

With Aston Villa beating United yesterday, I'm looking for the double upset. Can the Bears summon the spirit of Butkus?

  • I have a feeling the ass kicking is going to be long and hard. I will be watching,hoping,praying this team pulls one out of their collective asses.

    I have not had the feeling that the Bears had no chance against the Pack in a long time. But this team is so poor that it is nearly to that point. But the Brownies beat the Steelers,so yes i will tune in and hope our boys grow a set this afternoon.

    Go BEARSSSSSSSS.

    I guess I'm luckey I live here in Hampton Roads VA. Their biggest concern is the sorry good for nothing Wash. RedSkins & NASCAR. So I didn't get to see the Green Bay Chicago Bears game. Forgive me for saying this but anytime the BEARS bomb out my backup favorite is the Colts. But!, no matter what I still pull for the Bears right down to the FINISH.

  • If they win, they could deliver a mortal blow to the Packers' playoff aspirations.

    If they lose, it's just one step closer to Lovie Smith getting the axe. Remember this; in 2004 when Lovie Smith took the podium to address the media as Head Coach of the Chicago Bears he told us that his big goal was to beat Green Bay. So far he has been marginally successful at that; and he has NEVER been swept by the Packers. What if he is swept by the Pack today? Does that turn up the head beneath his ass?

    Just something to keep in mind. Begrudgingly, Bear Down.

  • Heat...I meant heat beneath his ass.

    But he might also have his head beneath his ass. What a lucky Freudian slip.

    Let's leave the scat references to Da Coach's Mustache.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Gilbert is inactive again this week. WTF

    I want to see what Aquaman has.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Love the picture of #51. My all-time favorite Bear. #2 is Gale and #3 is Walter.

    We have a chance today but we have to win the turnover battle and ST's. We used to beat teams with that formula. Of course, the D was way better but it can happen. The FudgePackers are a better match for us than the BiQueens. It's not like I'd bet on the Bears but I don't feel hopeless like the game against the Nordic Douchebags up in the land of 10,000 assholes.

    BTW, it's about -20 F up here today so I'm not going to the sports bar to watch it. Yeah, I know that makes me a candy ass. If anyone has a link to the game on the net, I would really appreciate the info. Thanks.

    Go Bears!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    *&%$#@! I AM THE GREATEST !! I could out-block out-tackle outkickyourass that white trash bum Butkus AND Outrun that four-eyed mofo "oh my knee!" Sayers at the same time. Goddamn.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Make the D watch this before the game. If how Butkus played doesn't fire you up, it's time to hang em up.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    That didn't work. Make the D watch this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV8nIHaiTNM&feature=related

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    And I dare any fan to say that they want the Bears to lose this game. If you do you may have just lost touch with why you love this sport so much.

    For one damn Sunday afternoon.

    Bear the fuck down!!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    If the Bears don't show up today, the fans will be ready to boo and boo hard. I can only hope Jay doesn't get killed trying to redeem himself for his week 1 performance. He's gonna need some serious help today.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    You are kidding me. Nice 3rd down call, Turner.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Plenty of football to play. Not so sure that's such a good thing.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    that was my first thought Max. and what the fuck was Bullocks doing on that play?

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Attaboy Omiyale..Plug.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    I'm guessing the D didn't watch

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    I have a feeling the Bears are going to be down 14-0 very soon. Omaliyae simply sucks! False start, then a holding penalty ... by himself he sapped the life out of the Bears series. And I can't forget, RTs ingenious play calling.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    One more for the Josh Bullocks Youtube highlight reel.
    What an idiot.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Don't challenge fucker

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    fuck

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Tillman just got burned by Jennings. GB is challenging the TD, and the way things have gone for the Bears this season, it will probably be overturned in favor of the Packers.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    hey Ron, have you ever heard of misdirection plays? Watch the Packers first play on this drive, you might learn something. Nice call Mike on Bullocks.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Well... I think a lot of people are going to get their wish from the ownership if this keeps up.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Yes!! And I was worried.

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    Bears just got lucky. That WAS a touchdown to Jennings.

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    Timeout??!!

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    Where is the safety help? Give them a free play on another penalty for stupidity.

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    why do we not go with Beek over Omiyale??

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    just turned this game on....heard about the 1st play of scrimmage. this game is gonna make me cringe.

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    I really hate GB, but I hate Lovie & Turner much more!!!!

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    If your gonna blitz on 3rd and 11, why don't you play press coverage?

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    Hey Cor, the pic is kinda fuzzy, is that a Northern or a Muskie? How big is it? NICE!!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Muskie. Caught it on a light pole with 10# test and 1/8 ounce rooster tail. Was bass fishing, but had a leader. 48" and 30 lbs on the nose. Got really lucky.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    SWEET!! I've never caught a Muskie (or a fish that big). I've caught a lot of fish in the 8-15 lb range but that's it.

    Go Bears!

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    Whenever Cutler zips the ball it usually ends at a receiver.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    I am not suprised at all. This is our team. We have the talent but the coaching is horrible. also, Where is the offense? havent seen them all game.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Please God, end the game quickly...
    I don't understand the Soldier Field crowd.... They stil have some hope? Wow!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    The bears might be worse off then I originally thought. This game should be 21-0.. Get it together, Packers!

    GO PACK GO!!!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    If the Bears don't drive and score on this possession, game over.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Too bad Davis is getting all of the fucking returns..

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Why would Packers fan come on this blog? Talk about no life.

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    Too funny.. I'm just having a little fun, & thought this blog was open to the general public. Next time you decide to comment.. 1) stay a little bit more classy, just a little bit.. 2) try NOT to completely expose yourself as mindless troll.

    .. This Aromashadu fellow looks like he can be a nice player given the playing time, and he's a big target too for Jay. How come I haven't seen more of this guy?

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Because our head coach and offensive coordinator are complete morons.
    I'm not kidding.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    That's a TD

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Have you noticed how Lovie uses the challenges like hail mary's? I think he should stop counting on these ridiculous challenges. Its embarrassing to watch.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    No fucking doubt about that one!!!!

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Yay...... Touchdown. Da Bears

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    why isn't aromashadu getting more snaps? every time i've seen him, he's done really well.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Nice pass to Knox

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    That's what I'm talking about ... nice catch by Knox and even better throw by Cutler! Now we're back in this game as long as we can prevent Green Bay from scoring before half.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Well, dude still has it. Nice one Jay (+Johnny).

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Wow, Gould cannot kick inside the 2 minute warning, that's the 3rd time this year.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Way to blow Tommie's great play

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Keep hope alive! Maybe this will be like last year. Dominated in first half, come back in 2nd half. Maybe get a few fluke plays?

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Nice hit to cause the fumble. Manning needed to fall on the ball instead of trying to run withit.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Get the hell off the field damnit!!

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    What did Mannelly do to get 15 yarder?

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    How bout 3 touchdowns in second half.
    1: Defensive score off a turnover.

    2: Forte needs to bust a 60 yard run.

    3: Cutler finds Olsen in the back of the end zone in the 4th Qtr.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    2nd good kick in a row by our best player.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Bears may score 3 td's, but they have to stop the Packers too. Not an easy thing for the Bears to do against anybody.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    One down, two to go.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    The success of Aroma and the Williams Boys proves again that Lovie and Turner MUST BE FIRED

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    OK, Lovie Smith needs to be fired simply for keeping Aromashadou inactive for so many games. Obviously Cutler likes throwing to him and trusts him--which was common knowledge since training camp--and the combo works. Shame on Lovie for not giving his franchise QB the tools he needs.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Arambishouda (sp?) is looking very good. I have to question why the Bears have kept him off the field all season. Knox and Arambishouda are legite WRs, get rid of Hester and Bennet. Hester should be delegated to KOs and PRs.

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    get rid of Bennett? worst comment of all time. yeah, who would want a posession receiver that catches everything you throw to him?

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    No doubt in my mind the Bears will blow this game, it's coming don't worry.

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    A close and competetive game against a good football team? That's a suprise i like from my Bears! Beat the Pack!

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    Don't worry

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    WhyyyyyyYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    This interception will get coaches fired.

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    Cutler has to be trying to get the coaches fired. (Hope, hope)

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    Its sad to say but all I want are my fantasy points now. I have Jennings, Grant and the Packers D. If it wasnt for fantasy football this year my season would be screwed.

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    At the beginning of the season I played Forte, Cutler and Knox but was loosing all my games. I refused to play packer and viking players but that all changed when the Bears showed my how bad they were this year.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I've long dropped Olsen/hester/Forte. No one picked them up off waivers....

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    ..... And the coaches in their bubbles, and they're all made of ticky-tack, and the coaches in their bubbles and they all suck Satan's c*ck ....

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Even David Haugh, the Chairman of the Commitee to Save Lovie Smith's Job has seen the light:
    www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/bears/chi-14-haugh-bears-packers-dec14,0,6480311.column

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    the Bears played the Packers hard but penalties and that Nick Collins interception killed us. I wouldn't compare these guys to the really shitty teams of old, that is just obnoxious but we need to put in a couple pieces before we are consistent. Forte is definitely a 2nd tier running back though. Brutal.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    To compare the current Bea(gg)ars roster to any group from the past would 1st require raising both Old Man Halas and Abe Gibron from the dead - whoops,. she did it again!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Meh. I'm over it.

    Have we got a new coach yet?

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Look people...McCaskeys, Phillips, and Angelo.

    Steve Mariucci was a good coach for San Francisco. He coached the 49ers for six year and made the playoffs four times.

    Lovie Smith has coached the Chicago Bears six year and missed the playoffs four times. How is it going to be ANY DIFFERENT next year or any subsequent year in which Smith is the head coach?

    IT'S NOT. Mediocre coach built a mediocre team. Chicagoans are crazy about "change." Change this. Change that. Change you can believe in. Well, the only change I believe in is changing the coaching staff.

    However, I as a lifelong Bears fan have NO faith that my organization will make the appropriate choice...because it hasn't made good choices since George Halas died. Instead it will make the decision it always makes...save some money...maybe it will get better next year...oops, it didn't get better, well let's hire some quality control coach from the Cleveland Browns.

    Yes, that's the ticket. Let's pass over Bill Cowher, Mike Shanahan, Mike Holmgren, John Gruden, even John Fox or Jeff Fisher in favor of a quality control coach from the Cleveland Browns...

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Here's a thought about the late Mr. Halas; who only brought in Ditka after future ticket sales declined!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Please remember that Ted Phillips got the city to rebuild Soldiers Field and that Mr. Angelo is personal friend of Coach Saban who ... oh yeah, sorry, I forgot!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Shit Ghost, at least the Browns looked decent this week and they got the fucking "W". Jesus, how sad is that?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Nothing sad about it. They deserved that win. Three down linemen rushing Rothlisberger and they got to him 8 times. Awesome. Those three guys and Joshua Cribbs beat the Steelers. I want their DC ....

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I meant sad for us that we can

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I hear you MB. The Browns look like a 3-man monsters of the midway, and the Packers get a new OL, Can't wait to see what we're getting for christmas ....

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Pretty sad footage,but what else is new. Everybody that watches the Bears in earnest knows he can't or won't block,or make the tough catch,or bust any tackles. Just like Benson,he is playing because of draft status.

    This team is lacking big time in professional football players,guys that do it all,all the time.

    I aint gonna scream about Lovie or anyone else on the coaching staff. The games have spoken for themselves. This in anyones eyes is flat out shit. The McCaskey clan has seen exactly what we have seen. The clock is now ticking............

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Hey all you Bear malcontents, why not become a Packer fan until your owners actually beat the odds and put together a decent team? Look at all the upsides, you all hate the Bears Owners and the teams they field, you spend all your free time in Wisconsin anyway, and you'd be supporting a team on the rise. Quit all your endless whining and enjoy a Monday morning for a change.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    of course, you're waking up in Wisconsin on that monday morning, so...

    Shoo, troll.

    *AfroCelt lives in Appleton and thinks Packer fair weather fans are too funny. You all were discussing firing McCarthy openly 5 weeks ago.

  • In reply to AfroCelt:

    You make several valid points phrozentundra.

  • In reply to AfroCelt:

    But at least you'd wake up feeling complete. Your visa papers indicate you live in the superior state anyways. So who's the troll? And to have McTwitty replaced is on most Packer fans Christmas list even though the team is performing in spite of him. The turn around occurred after the closed door, players only meeting after the Tampa game. If you read the local paper instead of sleeping on it you'd recall several players bitched publicly about the play calling and schemes.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    remind us why you're here?

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    I want to remind everyone what our Quarterback used to look like.

    This is the preseason game versus the Giants...the best game of Cutler's career as a Bear. Too bad it meant jack shit.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgE_gY-w1dM

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    I'm glad that I feel we've all gotten past the point where we have to sit here and delineate all the myriad reasons why Lovie deserves immediate firing. And thanks to David Haugh for doing the right thing this morning. I do believe that when something becomes obvious not just to us, but to the entire world, Virginia will listen and react.

    Devin Aromashodu is just the latest and best example of how terrible this coaching staff is. (and btw his name is NOT that hard to pronounce no matter how difficult it was to the awful announcers).

    I do believe we have a shot, boys and girls, a REAL SHOT to have an ENTIRELY BRAND NEW COACHING STAFF next year. And it's no small thing that no less of a legend than Bill Cowher says HE WANTS TO COME HERE!!! I don't think they can ignore that.

    Ready to say goodbye to Jerry Angelo too. And that's a change for me.

    A quick thought to next year's (meager) draft - I'm not sure how great of an offensive lineman we can get with the 3rd round pick. So how about taking the first or second best fullback in the draft? That's a position that is not particularly valued in the draft and God knows how bad we need a great one.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Phil, you and Al are my two favorite opiners. You prove your brilliance yet again.

    That is exactly what I think. Ownership CAN'T simply ignore the fact that the Bears have been on a continual downward spiral since February 2007. They simply CAN'T ignore the fact that one of the greatest coach of the 1990s-2000s decades is available and ACTUALLY WANTS TO COME HERE!

    But, as stated in my earlier post, I have a feeling that Bears management will let the fans down yet again...as they have been doing since George Halas died. They will probably keep Lovie Smith on for another season and when the Bears miss the playoffs for the FOURTH time since losing the Super Bowl they will make the change. Only once Bill Cowher and Mike Shanahan are off the market and we have to settle for the quality control coach of the Cleveland Browns will they decide that change in necessary.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Guys this was really the best thing that could have happened. Three things stand out to me, as many have pointed out:

    1) The timeout challenge disaster
    2) Aromashodu (who Cutler recommended as a starter weeks ago, yet was ignored because the staff still thinks Hester is a #1!!!!!)
    3) Penalties and lack of preparation at the begninning of games

    For these reasons, I think the Bears brass has no choice but to fire Lovie & co. We should really be thanking them for that game...Prior to that, I think they may have still held on to thier jobs...but they just sealed thier own fate with that game. This is a positive thing...

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    I went to Nawlins this weekend to see some good music and eat some soul food so I missed most of the game. I found one of the only bars in the french quarter that had the NFL ticket w/ 5 minutes left in the game and was able to watch the end.

    Looks like DA took advantage of his playing time. Why is it that a bunch of Bears fans on a blog can identify that a big and more physical receiver that our QB likes should have been playing all along, but the head coach cannot?

    I missed Lovie's brain queef with the challenge and timeouts, but it sounds like it epitomizes his inability to think outside the box and on the run.

    I heard there was a lot of empty seats but they didn't show the crowd the last 5 mins. Was that true? Maybe that will resonate with the McCaskeys.

    I saw Cutler arguing with Pep Hamilton, calling off Wrong's plays at the line, and coaching on the field. It looks like he has given up on this staff. I don't blame him, and I sort of like it. It shows the kid doesn't accept mediocrity and wants to win bad. For a minute, I thought too maybe he is sort of sabotaging this thing. I don't blame him for that either. You can tell by his mechanics (now constantly throwing off his back foot/being unsure in the pocket) that he has lost his swag. If the coaches can't help him get it back, then he needs to do it on his own. I'm not absolving him; he has thrown way too many picks period.

    I was impressed with the Saints nation down there in NOLA. I'm not a bandwaggoner, but they were representing strong. Everyone had gear on, signs everywhere, all you hear is "Who Dat?" It got annoying after a while, but I respected them. Plus, they haven't been good for decades and never been to a SB. I'll root for them over the fudge pack any day.

    Man, you people from Wisconsin are pathetic. No one from Chicago or anyone else for that matter goes to Wisconsin if they don't have to. Ho downs, hooking up with 3rd cousins, and banging farm animals is not my idea of a good time. Madison is the only place that is decent because of the Badger tale. I will never go to Green Bay in my lifetime.

    Gilbert didn't play???????????

    I hope we lose to Detroit. That's the only way the pressure level rises high enough to force the McCaskeys to take action.

    The Ravens game is going to be brutal. I see us getting punched in the mouth. Hopefully, Cutler doesn't get injured.

    Sad state of affairs.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Why root for a cock-tease team that might be good enough to get in but will get bounced in the first round? That doesn't seem fun.

  • In reply to crowntheirass:

    Geez, what was I thinking? Watching the Bears must be a lot better. You probably need to take the next step and become a Lions fan. You'd forget that you even had a cock.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Ghost.CTA. and Phil... I am with you on all, and beleive we need to change.

    My biggest concern is that the McC's are not willing to let their team go..It really comes down to a pissing contest or who has long dong.

    I think they are so afraid of a GM and/or a Coach having to much power..from the fans, the city etc.. the last time we had powerhouse coaches where when? yeah I do not have to remind you of that.

    I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE EITHER "Da Chin" or "Shanny" but is it realistic to think this Bear Management are willing to let go? You have to admit it from VM down it is one big gangbang train.

    I threaded this sometime ago..just look at our gladiators and you can see the complacency in all their eys, stance etc.....and it all starts from the top and the turds roll from there.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Ha! "Da Chin" has a very nice ring to it!

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Ghost. I cannot take the credit for "Da Chin" someone else said it on this blog sometime ago. And yes....It does have a great ring to it. not sure if the bell tolls for us though.

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    Sportsfansnetwork - "Bring in the chin !"

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    One great thing about Bear Fans who live in other cities and countries: We always get to vote a straight Democratic ticket several times in each election no matter how we vote at home!

    Same is probably true for "Da Chin" and "Shanny" so neither actually has to actually live/work/toil/suffer in Chicago either!

    Be sure to send your letters to Santa & leave him cookies and milk - I'll be too busy watching real teams in the playoffs!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Why would lovie call a fake fg against the rams to put the game out of reach and not go for it on 4th down with 5 mins to go against the pack to save the season against the pack? This team has no leadership. Lovie should play to win instead of playing it safe. Football in the NFL is won by making the tough decions on the sidelines and by trusting your players to execute. Coaching shouldn't lose games. I think lovie doesn't believe in his team. If he did he would stop calling games like a puss.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Loviehas lost my support And it's time to move on.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Guys, I was thinking about it today, and I realized that I think we actually have given (and continue to give) Lovie way too much credit for 2004 - 2006. As the story goes, Lovie took over the team in 2004, turned it all around in 2005, and took us to the Superbowl in 2006.

    Considering the evidence, I would like to present a theory. Defensive coordinator Ron Rivera was hired in 2004. By 2005 he built the #1 ranked defense in the league, and once again a top 5 defense that forced huge numbers of turnovers by 2006 and took the team to the Superbowl. In 2005 and 2006, Ron Turner was the offensive coordinator, and while the team was ranked #1 in scoring in 2006, I would argue that the biggest reason for this is Exhibit A, the amazing turnover-creating defense of 2006.

    In 2007, for some reason unknown to any Chicago Bears fan, Ron Rivera was fired. After leading essentially the best defense in football for 2 years running, that had just taken the team to a Superbowl. Since the point which he was fired, the defense has finished no higher than 21st, and has been at most, underwhelming.

    So now tell me, who really took the Chicago Bears to the Superbowl?

  • In reply to dkbat:

    Agree completely! Same is true for the quarterback fiasco - watching Bears panic after McMahon went down and going all the way back to getting rid of George Blanda!

    challenge it Lovie...why call a timeout?

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    Lovie Smith is an idiot. If you were going to challenge, don't call a time out before you're going to challenge. If you needed a time out, challenge--it's not like you'd miss it with this little time left in the game.

    Lovie really must go. I think he knows it, too.

  • In reply to IBNO:

    Dummy Smith..that's our coach fellas

  • In reply to IBNO:

    Did the ball hit a Packer? You should challenge, Lovie! Oh wait... you only have one timeout left to burn...

  • In reply to IBNO:

    Lovie has to be the most inept coach in NFL history when it comes to managing a game, timeouts and the challenge flag. What a fucking loser!

  • In reply to IBNO:

    Interception time!

  • In reply to IBNO:

    Let's see Ron Turner do his magic! Waah.

  • In reply to dr401k:

    Look at it this way; Perhaps there is a good reason his brother in San Diego does not offer him a job.

  • In reply to IBNO:

    time to see if Cutler can run the 2 min Offense

  • In reply to windypack:

    Cutler's version: No interceptions.

  • In reply to windypack:

    I think he can. Just surround him with a capable football team...

  • In reply to windypack:

    And that my friends will do it for YOUR CHICAGO BEARS. Thank God for Fantasy Football.

  • In reply to windypack:

    13 penalties on the Bears says it all. On the bright side, at least the Bears didn't get blown out. In the end, this franchise needs to clean house. Bye Bye Lovie, you clueless, inept, poor excuse for a head coach!!!

  • In reply to windypack:

    Great play calling there on that last drive, Ron. Oh, and O-line, can you give the guy a few seconds to set up and throw? A safety blitz isn't any great mystery.

  • In reply to windypack:

    Lovie - just go. Please. That timeout before the challenge was just the latest in a long line of inept decisions. You are not the only thing wrong with this football team, but you're certainly the worst.

  • In reply to windypack:

    Almost a Cutlerception.....we are sure to go 5-10 heading to Ford Field

  • In reply to windypack:

    was that false start on the center??

  • In reply to windypack:

    F#@& Lovie Smith, Ron Turner, J. Angelo and Jay Interception Cutler!!!!!
    Maybe in the 2010 Draft we'll....hum...Oh...right...I prefered a bust QB...nice!
    In 2015 the Bears will be a truly football team!!! (maybe...maybe...)

  • In reply to windypack:

    Don`t give up on Jay yet... Aroma looked good today, we need some competant lineman before this offense becomes anything close to functional. Lovie and Ron Turner have to go though...

  • In reply to windypack:

    Today's theme song: "goodbye my Lovie" by James Blunt.
    This has to be the last straw. A very win-able game very much lost by coaching, mismanagement, undisciplined stupid plays... again.
    Please Bill Cower, please. Please. Please.
    Look at all these LBs for your 4-3 madcap schemes! Tillman and Bowman can play! Come on Bill, bring your mustache to Chi.

  • In reply to windypack:

    OK now we need to play only to see what we have for next year. Sit Pace, Kreutz, McKie, Forte, Hester, Tillman, Briggs and maybe only let Cutler play the 1st half of the next 2 games or something (let him develop the young guys some). One of 3 things will come of it. We will either see that we have some people that can play and maybe don't have quite as many needs as we thought, someone can be built up as trade bait or allow us to more safely trade a veteran or we can drop them and not waste any more time or roster spots on dead weight. Coaches can you handle this? Then we can at least evaluate the players properly even if you can't.

  • In reply to windypack:

    The rule is crystal clear. A receiver making a catch while going to the ground MUST MAITAIN POSESSION after he hits the ground.
    What part of "must maintain possession" don't YOU understand, Lovie?

    Love Smith: Dumber than a box of rocks.

    In the forthcoming remake of DUMB AND DUMBER,
    Lovie will play BOTH leads.

  • In reply to windypack:

    Cower will reign in Cutler just like he did big Ben. Fix the oline probs and running game. He could make a team with the tools we have, I believe.

  • In reply to windypack:

    I wanted to come here to see how my fellow bears fans felt about the game. Yes, the time out/challenge call was all most as stupid as Joe Gibbs! But this game was lost due to an int and penalties. The defense held a top five offense in check. I would love to see Devin times two as our starting wideouts with Knox in the slot. Lets be honest a win would have been nice but our season was over after the lost to the 49ERS.

  • In reply to windypack:

    o-line, o-line, o-line. The first 3 picks in the draft had better be offensive lineman.

  • In reply to windypack:

    What a huge disappointing season. Fire

  • In reply to windypack:

    It will be interesting to see who starts next week. If Lovie says anything about our playoff hopes being alive, he should be fired on the spot. Cutler's 2 picks and a totally undisciplined team were the nails in the coffin. Not to mention ST's once again weren't special. What the hell is Rashied doing returning kicks? Did I miss something? Jamar has the game of his life and the best defensive game by any Bear in 3 years and he's on the bench! WTF!?

  • In reply to windypack:

    Cutler will get better and i saw some really promising things from DA.
    DA, Knox, Bennett, Hester and an offseason pickup would be a great WR lineup. Knox has a lot to learn but he will get there.
    Giving up that 62yd run because Hunter and Bullocks suck was a real ball breaker.
    Give Jamar a fucking chance. HH has to fucking go.
    Not a bad effort for the last 3 quarters. The Nick Collins pick was brutal but our offense will improve and even though this year is done we will improve for next year.

  • In reply to windypack:

    the fucking penalties were brutal and Williams/Omiyale really did a good job of hammering the nails in the coffin today.

  • In reply to windypack:

    Omiyale didn't start in Carolina for a reason, but with another yr it could be like the Packers. But, I agree with everyone, the o line needs a leader. I'm about to sell my tix to the game in Baltimore instead of the jokes after the game.

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    Look at our future left guard! Whoohoo! Oh and our awesome head coach. Blah!

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    Lovie Smith challenge Master!

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    The epitome of stupidity!

  • In reply to ColoradoBearsFan:

    DA ? What about Brandon Rideau ? He's taller still ...

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    this should be our starting offense. Aromashudo, Bennett, and Knox. C.williamsr at LT and Sheffer at RT. this better be our starting lineup next week.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    omg i bet fucking Lovie will bench aromashudo and sheffer next week, then he will put Williams at RT and Pace at LT.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    You guys need to wait until the games over before you start with the rubber necking. Lets wait till after we beat these cheeseheads back to Green Bay like the punks that they are.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    who is this team and what have they done w/ my chicago bears? BEAR DOWN!!!!

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Gaines Adams sighting

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    I missed it what happened. How are we winning?

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Yes nice stop D. Cutler we need a nice long drive and some points at the end of it. Come on. Crush the Packers dreams of the playoffs!!

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Cutler is looking good, Z. Other than a bad miscommunication INT, he's been the QB we want him to be.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Im really getting sick of listening to Billick

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    funny, even the team playing well means Lovie should be fired.

  • In reply to animal:

    Good One!

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    Woodson bareley touches Forte with an arm ... and Forte falls down. To be a running back in the NFL, you have to break tackles, and not fall down when someone touches you!

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    WHERE THE FUCK HAS AROMASHADOUCHE BEEN ALL YEAR? I HATE THIS FUCKING COACHING STAFF WITH A PASSION

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    omiyale? why is he starting again? also, why the fuck havent we been playing Aromashudo more? he is beating woodson on every play. clearly he is our best WR

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    Cutler shouldnt be throwing those balls.Our receivers are not good to go up for those kind of shots.

  • In reply to johnkos:

    he could of gotten if woodson didnt dive into his lower back?

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    The officials absolutely hate Jay.
    And Billick, screw you too, buddy.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    "incidental contact", my ass. That long-haired hippie-boy ran through the receiver before the ball got there. Please Brian, explain to me what's incidental about that?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    it was a bad call.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    We do not even get respect from the officials.Hoep the fans that drank the kool aid will get a better look at reality today.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I meant Hope

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    What a great defensive stand. I knew our defense would come to play. The Packers were finally forced to punt.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    why isn't aromashadu getting more snaps? every time i've seen him, he's done really well.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    this team sucks... plain and simple.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    touchdown to Olson, I can smell it coming.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    and my nose never lies

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Jesus Christ ... what is this ... the fourth illegal start on this offense?

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Pathetic. Not even close to being entertaining. This team is horrible.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    The Bears have amassed a total of 23-yards on offense through nearly 1.5 quarters. Pathetic!

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    Wow. Really? What a joke. Nice run Rogers.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    The Packers have no respect for the Bears defense. Going for it on Fourth down and three, and htey make it with no problem. I'm glad Lovie is overseeing the defense this season.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    How come they didnt get called on holding?

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    100 rushing yards in the first quarter.. C'mon D

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    This is getting ugly...

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    Nice throw off your backfoot Cutler ... I'm having flashbacks to the days of Grossman. I am pulling for the Bears to beat the hated Packers, but this team is awful on both sides of the ball!

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    The Bears don't look like they're prepared for this game at all.

  • Ghost. I beleive you were correct the first time..

  • 24-0 Halftime

  • Anybody got a link?

  • Get Lovie's stupid, clueless looking face off my T.V. screen!!

  • Nice hit by Knox - I guess that's the highlight of the half for me.

  • Just remember Nicole that wherever you are in this world (or the next) you are still voting a straight Democratic ticket several times in each election back here in Illinois!
