Wait Seven Days

The Bears are not good.  Not even close.  Today's win was so awful that it was enough to get a coach fired.  But it won't.  Why?  Because we're already in the process of disguising this victory as somehow important.  Nothing...nothing...nothing...was learned today.

This team is awful.  Terrible.  Disgusting. 

But you know what? 

It's Packer week.

  • i know that i learned that i like seeing Earl Bennett get crossing pattern looks and that Jay threw him a TD pass on the same play he was open on in the S.F game.

    Also, i think EJ Henderson just broke his fucking leg in half. Like Theisman style. Oh My God.

    He is so fucked

    Guys, watching the redbirds kick the holy bejesus out of the Vikings has been so pleasing that I almost forgot how bad we were today.

    Man, warner is a badass... and that oline (against one of the best dlines in the league right now) was unreal. I don't feel so badly that they beat us like a rented mule.

    Can we please Jebus just have a game like this next week... pleeeeease.

    Also, damn EJ Henderson just incurred a left tib/fib compound fracture (I am betting)... same as I did my redshirt year in college. Nasty, NASTY injury. Hope he recovers man, it's a horrible injury for a football player, and I don

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    either that or he tore literally every ligament in his knee and dislocated it at the joint because his leg was turned the other way at one point in the air. horrible....

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Johnny W... yeah man... just naaaaasty. With mine, I was on the field with the bone poking out of my tights. After they put a rod down the middle and screw it into his ankle with 2 screws he'll have a loooong time in rehab. The worst part is running again... all the scar tissue has to be broken up and it is the most painful thing, but you have to break it up so there's no short cuts.

    Also, look how fucking dirty the Vikings get when they are being beaten. What a bunch of dirty fucking punks. Disgusting.

  • In reply to GoBears:

    Hell no! Are you serious?

    No outs. No tenth chances. No memory loss. NO Lovie and crew!

    They all need the ejection seat no matter what happens in the last worthless games of this lost season. Common man.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    There

  • In reply to GoBears:

    They could win out, but I'd STILL fire Lovie and Crew.

  • In reply to GoBears:

    The true test of our young players is yet to come.The Rams suck and blow,what a crap team that is.
    Some other questions that need to be answered. Why is Jason McKie still on this team?When is the last time we saw a Bears wideout break a tackle,or rip a ball away from a defender?When have you seen Cutler take a seven step drop?What are the Bears going to do with Daniel Manning? Is Forte really any good?

    After watching the Queens get flogged by the Cards,one thing is clear,Fitzgerald and Boldin are monsters,we have nothing even close to those guys.

    Bad shit happens to bad teams,did anyone watch the end of Saints,Skins? OUCH.That was worse than Atlanta last year.

    Packer week again,things look pretty bleak. Rodgers aint Kyle Boller. Maybe Lovie and the boys will watch the film of Tampa kicking their ass.Pounding the Pack would make me feel a little better about this team.

  • In reply to GoBears:

    GoBears, you must be insane.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    BTW, how about Urlacker, Vasher, Olsen for Ed Reed?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Might be more attractive if we leave Vasher out of the trade, hweh hweh hweh ...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Trade Urlacher, I'll take the kid with 18 tackles and 2 passes defended and use my second round pick on a monster offensive lineman with smarts.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    we used our second round pick on Gaines Fing Adams.

  • In reply to animal:

    well said, well said.

  • In reply to animal:

    You know who else would have called for that fake field goal?

    Abe Gibron.

    And THAT, folks, speaks volumes.

  • In reply to animal:

    That was about as boring a game as I've ever seen. Could barely pay attention at times.

    Bears victories this season: Steelers (clearly struggling), Seahawks (missing half the team), Lions (suck), Browns (really suck), Rams (really, really suck). I had a bad feeling yesterday that the Bears may be not much better than the worst teams the NFL has to offer.

    Anyone hear Lovie in the post game talking about Bear weather and running the ball? I almost puked. I don't blame the man for everything, but his press conferences are brutal.

    Still, at least this is Packer week. A victory would be far fetched, but at least it gives us at least a little bit to look forward to come next Sunday.

  • In reply to animal:

    I'll admit that while it it was less than satisfying, a win IS a win.

    Sunday did have some OTHER satisfying moments...

    The Vikings crashed and burned.
    And that was one VERY expensive loss as they came away very dinged up physically AND 2 games behind the Saints for home field.

    The Steelers collapsed in the 4th quarter.
    Against "Da Raidas".
    At Home.
    For their FOURTH loss in a row.
    Way to go, champs!

    The Patriots and genius head coach, Bill Belicheat, kept pissing away chances to add 3 points here or there all day but since Miami is considerably better than the Rams...WHOOPS, it cost them the game. Awwww.

    The Cowboys, who had quietly sneaked to an 8-3 marek while UNDER the radar put themselves BACK ON the radar with another "December loss". Tsk, Tsk, Tsk. question,s quistions, quiestions, again, Jerry Jones.

  • In reply to animal:

    I made the mistake of going to the game yesterday and seeing that pitiful excuse of an offense. The only bright spot is all the great fans who tailgate and love this team more than anything. What I really learned yesterday was this year is a rebuilding year and probably a couple years into the future before we even have a chance of competing again and Bears fans are the most dedicated and loyal anywhere. That was my first Bears tailgating experience and I've never seen anything like it. Great people and great food cheering for the greatest franchise in sports. These great fans deserve a great team to cheer for so pull the trigger on a new regime and get Lovie out of town.

  • In reply to animal:

    Heard on the radio that Weiss would be interested in offensive postion if it is available....for whatever that is worth. Can we pick apart the Packers offensive line this Sunday? They still are pretty bad, but Rodgers is of course solid. Ruinning their Wild Card chances would go a long way toward making me feel better about this season.

  • In reply to animal:

    Anybody else seeing the Charlie Weiss as Bears O-coordinator next year rumors. I'm not sure how I feel about that. It might actually work as anything is better than Turner, but does that mean Lovie stays? Weiss failed in South Bend but I think that has more to do with the fact that he's not head coach material. I the Bears do plan on keeping Lovie I want at a minimum to get an experienced O-coordinator in here to shake things up.

  • In reply to animal:

    Why would the Bears want a big-ego guy who consistently got outcoached in college games to come run their offense? Oh wait, he'd fit right in, so it just might happen.

  • In reply to animal:

    Scoring 17 points at home against the Rams = one of the worst offenses of all time. Even mediocre teams could have dropped 40 on those guys. We are NOT a middle of the road team. We are a bottom-feeding team. Who are the Bears truly better than right now? The Browns, the Rams, could easily lose at Detroit yet this season, so not sure there. Who else? Toss-up with Tampa, Buffalo, and Chiefs. I have to believe a better coach could get a lot more out of this offense by moving Jay out of the non-pocket and being more creative. The Bears apparently think that worthless excuse for a screen is being creative. Even still, you have to have linemen, so we're probably not going to be that much better on either side of the ball for the next couple of years. A new coach would at least give me hope for the future (but please, God, not Weiss!).

  • In reply to animal:

    The Bears coaching staffs may be working 100 hour weeks watching game films but they need to stop and start watching NFL games. During the last 10 years rule changes have turned the league into one for quarterbacks and that

  • In reply to animal:

    So the playoffs are not happening for us this year. Ok, now it's time for me to move to my Plan B I Will Be OK IF: the Bears beat the Eagles and/or the 49ers (when they play), the Cheeseheads both times, and the Vikings both times. Well, that didn't work so now I am looking at my Plan C I Will Be Not So Bad If: the Bears beat the Cheese and Vikings at home. Oh, and Favre on a cart would be a definite plus. Plan D: Blackhawks?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Unassisted tackles : Jamar Williams - 13. Hunter Hillenbum ? 1. One measly tackle. Middle linebacker for the Chicago Bears makes one tackle on his lonesome. What a bum.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I will fuckingpuke if that damn bubble screen is called again don't them assfucks know no body is out there blocking? da bears will not win out but I hope somehow we piss and puke all over the fudgepackers parade and jeff 6 days brother!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Lovie must go. Fake field goal would have cost the Bears the game against a better opponent. If I'm a Bears player I'm really pissed at that assbrain call.

    Lovie Must Go.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    For those of us calling for Lovie head It not going to HAPPEN next season.Why 2011 season lockout,Da'Bears are not going to pay 2 coaches not to coach this team.They will re-tool this coaching staff again that is it.So all high profile coaches need not apply you contract demands are to high to swallow.By default we're stuck with Ron Turner,what OC want to come work with a lame duck coach next season?

  • In reply to DecaturStaleys7:

    Academically, we all know the odds and the history, but we did say the same thing about a big-time QB last season. Lightening might not strike twice, but we can damn well hope for it DS.

  • In reply to GoBears:

    Item 1:
    A coaching staff serious about making significant change to an OBVIOUSLY ineffective offensive line would have moved Williams to left tackle WEEKS ago. And lets not get too giddy about the new alignment. It was, after all, the RAMS ouit there today.

    Item 2:
    That fake field goal call was absolutely MORONIC. defensive Yes, defebnsive holding should have been called because Olson's jersey was grabbed before he caught the ball but poor tteams don't get those calls so TAKE THE FREAKING 3 POINTS when you have the chance. Going up 13-0 is a GOOD thing!

    You clowns have been losing close games because you've failed to get points on numerous redzone chances and when you have a chance you just piss away 3 points by choice?!

    You're fired!

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Al, that call was brutal. you take the points after a turnover like that.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    who do you guys think will take the game tomorrow night? I'm hoping ray ray causes some damage.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Not to mention the spread was Bears -9, and they won by 8.

  • In reply to GoBears:

    2 Bloody Marys, a Reuben Sandwich, and a coke while at the bar watching the Bears win in a wholly UNimpressive fashion: $18.

    Tip: $4

    Coming home and watching the Vikings get their asses kicked on National TV: Priceless.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    very nice Al. Very nice.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Agreed, Al. Poetic.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'm with you I would love to be wrong, an the right coach gets the call with some football accolades an vision on how to build a team.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Silver lining- we learned a lot more about Chris Williams, Bennett, Payne, Jamar Williams, Nick Roach, Afalava.
    Jamar made very tackle. Pairing Payne and Lava worked against one of the top RBs in the league. Leave this lineup as is and let them get a taste of Packer hate and rivalry.

  • In reply to animal:

    reminder: we played the rams at soldier field.

    we praised the d after the win over the browns too, just saying.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Man, the Vikings looked like the Bears out there. Those Cardinals have improved a lot, especially their O-line. Their DL manhandled a pretty good OL a way better team than the Colts - can they go one better this year ? Why not ? We smack the Pack and the Vikings before we sign off for the season ....

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Seven runs to the left. First play of a drive. I still can't get my head around that ....

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Nice one Al...

  • In reply to GoBears:

    i am at a loss for words, Jamar Williams has 18+ tackles and the CSN fan poll had Hunter Hillenmeyer as the best defender of the day? Williams and Adams made almost every tackle. Twilight Zone.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I do.
