Mike Florio believes the Bears will visit the Dallas Cowboys for the late afternoon game on Thanksgiving. The official announcement for key games is due tomorrow.
More to come...
Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Thanksgiving
I'm going to that game fo sho!
God i REALLY hope it's not on T-giving, but if it is, i'll be there for it. maybe me and Joe will get seats next to each other and throw beer on all the Cowgirl fans
fuck those faggots
The Bears at Dallas on Thanksgiving Day?
That conjurs up visions of Chad Hutchinson at QB.
As long as there's a big fat Bear chewing on Cowgirl drumsticks underneath the big screen at the end of the day...
On the subject of backup QBs, how about Rothlisberger ? Should be there for a fourth rounder soon enough. We need some of that bad beast on the bench, teach the choir boys a thing or two. We need a dirty bastard bad boy on the team, we're waaay tooo clean. If we're not going down the route of excellence and 'leave it all on the field' Walter Payton school of thought ... then let's be the Bad Bears. If we can't get Fat Ben, then at least get Stallworth - his drinking stories will beat anyone's. Or wait til Dusty rapes someone and sign him back .... can't we get Urlacher's drink spiked and push him towards a high school disco or something ? I'll bet there's prayer meetings at Halas hall. I'll bet Lovie has the linebackers praying together when they should be out on the field knocking the snot out of one another. Is that what we're missing ? Bad boys ?
Be good, or be the Raiders ....
Some small amount of tongue in cheek regarding any tender for Fat Ben ...
Hey ! Top Ten NFL rapists, I wonder why that isn't covered on Chicago Now - they've done lists on everything else. Who were the best players done for rape ? Top Ten NFL Wife Beaters - who'd be number one on that list? Top Ten NFL sexual assault charges that just disappeared ? He is who we thought he was.
Short blog trivia question :
Who is the all-time leader in pro football passing yardage ? Tick Tock ...
Irish, I know you're joking but that's beyond bad taste. Rape and wife beating just isn't funny. Go back to making fun of Olsen.
Correct answer, Doc, it was indeed Matt Damon, who passed for over 73,000 yards before embarking on his film career in which he picked up the oscar for Best original screenplay whenever. Damon, who first started playing football professionally (aged 11) for the Toronto Argonauts, always had the acting bug he said, and he doesn't miss football.
Jebus Christo Irish... it looks like you've forsaken your own advice and taken 5 percocet and 3 pints o' Guiness.
Gotta agree! Nothing funny about rape and wife beating.
Who said there was anything funny about rape and wife-beating Canada ? 20% of players get charged with a serious crime - *that's* not funny. That's the point.
I live a couple hours away from Dallas but I dislike the cowboys and JJ so much I could nener see myself going to thier stadium.
I don't have Kyle Orton rose colored glasses but is it just me who thinks that Brady Quinn doesn't have a hope in hell of beating him out in Denver?
I don't think brady quinn can beat off.
There are plenty of MEN that do that for him!!!
Irish, thanks for the Monday morning laughs. I can't decide whether to buy you a beer or ask someone to up your medication...

Fucking Ouch. Well done GP.
MB, read your posted article on yesterdays thread. Seemed to suggest Ottogwe trade a possibility with Chicago. Does St. Louis need a TE? If so I have just the perfect candidate in mind.
Trac/AskJA&LDL...... I believe I found your new Avatar and your new opening scene JA and LDL!
WILL FIND AWAY TO BE THERE!!!!
Lobo, Planes,Trains & Automobiles, LOL!! GO BEARS!
BF..for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCqcMOB6STc
HELL OF A GAME!!!!!GO BEARS!!!!
Don't know if they need a TE but if I were JA I'd be willing to part with him and a rather large bag 'o dicks for Ott. Maybe throw in a huge cock-shaped pillah too.
I like to watch Football on Thanksgiving, it is a tradition. But, I dont want to see the Bears play on Thanksgiving. Why? because it is on a Thursday! I dont like them having to play only 4 days after another game. The risks for injury really escalate and being pretty sore still, is just not good for any team/players. If they want to do a Thursday game, they should work it where both teams are playing that day after coming off their by week. So if the Bears were coming off their by week, then I would love to see Da Bears play on Thanksgiving!! I just dont want our players getting injured, or having to play less than 4 days later, I would rather they play at full strength! But thats just what I think. They will also consider division rivals like the Giants or the Eagles for that game. I hate Dallas though. So I look forward to kicking their ass this year, whenever we play them,LOL!!
Trac, I agree, no way Quinn will beat off Kyle Orton for the starting job!! Quinny has Proven so far to be a BUST!! McDumiels is gonna have to do better than Quinn,LOL!!
Is that how the starting QB position is decided?
Hey Z, I guess that is how they do it in Denver now with McDumiels, LOL. Kyle had to beat off Simms last year, but Simms doesnt have the stroke he had before his injury, ha,ha,ha. McDumiels dont care about the wonderlic, he wants the guys with the wonder stroke, LOL!! So No Way Quinn beats off Orton this year, Mcdumiels said Orton has the stroke advantage right now. Sorry, but I am starting to get bitter Beer Bear face, aaargh. Cheap beer does it everytime!
By the way. Have we signed a Free Safety yet??? I feel the need to keep asking, although I am sure it does no good. Angelo, we are not quite in it to win it yet!! There is still work to be done, dont wait too long & lose prospects over thousands of dollars already.. If we want to lead, we have to move to the front of the line! Not stand in the shadows and hope. GO BEARS!!
If little baby Jebus is listening, I know he's just waiting for Atogwe to become a Bear. I might just get excited about next year if The Guards of Lobo arrive and we grab MB's broken foot receiver guy. Who gets the boot if we bring in Atogwe ?
I thought it was pretty cool and showed good character when Peppers said he would compensate Gilbert for his jersey #. Even though Gilbert said it was all good, Peppers insisted he would compensate him anyway for the jersey #.
If Pep was a badass he would have bought Gilbert a year's pass to the local swimming pool.
They have been talking about changes to the over time format, as you all know. But I heard an interesting stat on the Bears. Apparently the Bears are 11-3 in their last 14 overtime games, that Surprised me, I didnt realize we had been that effective!!
Have any of you guys ever tried a Ghost Pepper? It's one of the hottest peppers in the world. I had a small dab of hot sauce on a Dorito that was made of a Ghost Pepper and it nearly burned a whole through my Esaphogus/Small and Large Intestine and my toilet bowl on the way out!
Try it if you dare! Bahahahaha No seriously, 1 drop will destroy your world!
Ghost Pepper in the fight against terrorism.
not football related but awesome
DM, fucking hilarious. Stiller's not my favorite, but that shit was funny.
Funny or die is good stuff. You guys ever see this: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/74/the-landlord-from-will-ferrell-and-adam-ghost-panther-mckay
+1 Nice find. I see my three tissue Jewish princess fantasy is on there. Must investigate.
In and around the subject of space sluts, did you know Boba Fett didn't die in the Pit of Sarlacc ? A friend has just read some star wars trilogy and in the books, Boba Fett blasts his way out of the Sarlacc like the bad ass he is. Now.
It's new this year... got voted in along with the new OT rules. Feel badly for Quinn. Guy litterally fucks himself wherever he goes.
It should be a close call, especially as the season wears on. I think last year it was much more of a pooch screw situation for Simms though. The guy picks the Broncos backup job because he doesn't want to lose a QB comp to Orton in Chicago and then Orton gets traded there tto compete with him anyway, epic.
I agree MB, Quinn does Fuhck himself, its incredible, he should be on Ripleys or something,Ha,ha,ha!!
Off topic somewhat but have you guys read the comments on the article in the Trib about Peppers compensating Jarron for the jersey number? We must have some of the dumbest fans on the planet. They either rip on Jarron for being a pussy and giving up the number and/or rip on Peppers for being an asshole for taking the number. This practice has only been going on for the last 25 years. How do these dummies make enough money to pay for the internet?
I like the Peppers #. In fact, I coach two NFL Flag Teams and practice starts today, they are both Da Bears. My 6th grade *basketball* team got me a new Peppers jersey as a coach gift, and I'll be wearing it for our first practices!
Good luck with the teams Bobby, fair play to you.
I really hope I don't have to throw the turkey at the TV again this year. I'll be thankful for a win PEPPERS
Pepper corn turkey
I wasn't offended like Canada... even though he's quite entitled to those feelings. I was just laughing at Irish.
Thank you MB. I'm here to be laughed at after all :o)
we all are Irish, we all are... just haven't figured out who and why yet. Just always make sure to do your ladyboy check lad.
There is that one Depeche Mode song and all...
That would be Ralph on the Simpsons.

because he's high. And when you're high, the sun makes your eyes hurt....if you have an umbrella, problem solved.
I have no idea if thats true...but its plausible.
Hahahahahahahaha... very logical DM, not very funny, but very logical.
Doc, can you whip up a theorem to explain DM's explanation?
By the Way, have we Signed a Free Safety Yet?? Come on J-Lo(Jerry Angelo), get on the phone, make some moves, spend some more money. If the Bears wait too long we could miss out on a couple good f-Agent Safeties in Atogwe,Sharper. They may feel the Bears arent interested & could re sign with their teams. Lets at least throw a fishing line out there, show some interest at least, Just Sayin. It is not against the rules to interview a pontential player of NEED in the NFL. Dont stop now J-Lo, lets get crackin!! Remember, We are in it to Win it? And We Need a few more players to win it!!
Ha. Like it DM.
Doc...I'm telling you this Pepper is insanity!
The cop on the Simpsons? I googled it :)
Probably one of my favorite Simpsons ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5CZ58CBGtg
MB..That is a riot!!!!! he was old school for SNL..he would of gotten along with the first class of SNL
Lobo, this is actually my fav (I think I might have posted it once before actually): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkqrI3IibYI
Nothing political, he's just so good at it.
MB....HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Loved the Soul Patch and all have to say is...Stategery!!!!
There's always this: http://www.portroids.com/SB/Chevy%20Chase%20and%20John%20Belushi.jpg
yeah I think that was John telling Chevy what he really thought of him? LOL!!
MB.....My mom knew Mrs. Belushi...after John died she said Mrs. Belushi was never the same joyful soul. :(
They were both geniuses in their own right Lobo.
Belushi for everything, but specifically for bluto blutoski in my mind... Mistah Bluutoski.... zeero. point. Zeeeeroooo.
And Chevy for Caddy and Fletch. Two of the most guy-quotable movies ever made.
True, unmitigated genius.
Fletch was classic - I miss comedies. Today's writers suck. The Jerk, I'm gonna git you sucka! ... comedy scripts these days are just pants.
+1 + +1
My +1 and +1 are for John Belushi and Chevy Chase being genuises if your too lazy to scroll all the way back up.
Lobo ! Wake up ! The best part of the day is already over sure ...
Got you a guard, maybe. Angelo has blown all his pocket money in the same shop? Never had a granny who warned him about that I'd guess. Jackal boy probably never had a mother, anyway ...
Olsen for Smiley?
Holy Crapinsky!!! Please Baby Jebus..my favorite of course!! help JA and go get this guy!!!
Nice one Lobo.
Cal Naughton Jr.: "I like to think of Jesus like with giant eagles wings, and singing lead vocals for Lynnard Skynnard with like an angel band and I'm in the front row ... hammered drunk."
This guy could be a bargain. His team's fans think highly of him (from the comments section on the article):
Smiley is a solid Guard - I
I think its interesting that Miami is trying to improve a good O-line and all we have to show is a 600 lb TE.
GET HIM! GET HIM! GET HIM!......thanks Irish I was dreaming of sugar plum gaurds protecting our franchise QB... and I wake up read this and maybe baby Jebus is going to give us one more miricle!!!
ps..baby jebus we need a FS, too!
If we sign this guy Smiley, trade next year's #1 for Marshall, sign Atogwe on June 1st, draft another guard for Lobo & Demariyus Thomas at WR then it's kool aid for the whole off-season ...
Don't want Baby T.O.
Hey guys, with a defensive minded coach, I wonder who will be our first pick in this years draft? I ready for our D to rock again.
Mayock makes an interesting point in NFL Total Access 'State of the Bears', with the 75th pick it isn't a case of "Let's draft a guard" or "Let's draft a free safety" it will be "Who's the best player on the board?". That could be a defensive tackle. In fact I'll bet my nards that Angelo drafts a DT in the 3rd round.
irish...come on I may just pass out with the possiblities we can do this!!!
Doctor Nitty 34! Now I know your deal brah! You're gay. PC loving shitbag. How wonderful that you don't tolerate any questionable blog behavior on your watch. Lions and Tigers and Bears OH MY! DocNuts is like a small town cop. He controls this site because he's so farking decent and righteous. How many times have you had your ass kicked in Chitown bars for opening your 22 year old pie-hole? Too many to count nittynothing. Do chicks fall for your holier than thou line of bullshit? Doubt it bigtime loser. My guess is you stand 5-4 and weigh 260. PORKER! Lay off you poor sister...she's tired.
Welcome back Max. Yes, there are a lot of decent people on here. Imagine that. And far from being PC and 'all correct', Doc likes to un-PC things around here now and again. Political Correctness is for SB Nation and all the Rex Olsen fans on there. But seriously man, where does that much anger come from ? Oh wait, it was that time you groped your friend under the bleachers ... was he black ? Is your gayness now a source of frustration, you don't want to be but you are ? You went down a black guy and it felt so good you got all confused Repeat after me Jersey : "It wasn't my fault ... it wasn't my fault."
Keep it on Fan Nation man, we've already got one little green and yellow waste of oxygen on here .....
I take that back, keep it on here, it's a public forum and the internet is a free world. But show some love man, it's a Bear's site, not a bar.
Hey Prick. Your quote''' And even if it does offend me, like Jersey Devil, I still welcome any and all comments (Max excluded) so long as the person is willing to deal with the probable shit storm to follow. The only shitstorm that will follow DocBallBag is the one you leave for your poor kid to smell in your trailer bathroom. Clean the crap up pronto or junior will get all stinky...
Why are you here brah? Your writing is 6th grade level atrocious, you don't seem to know much about the Bears or football (at least I don't remember one substantive point you have made about the Bears...Does anybody else?), and your angry racist rants piss people off. Your ignorance shines through by your inability to properly use quotation marks. You are a faded out stain in what is the arm-pit state.
Hey Crown, just ignore the Loser, they thrive off attention. Remember: Jersey is who you thought he was, LOL!!
I sometimes wonder what I'm doing on this site. I have to put up with allot of junk at the job and I find it pretty sorry when the same happens here. I guess people will be people.
Hey Trac, I know what you mean. I dont get into too many blog conversations on other sites anymore, because they are loaded with Lowlife Shiht bags like Jersey & Max. But you know what, this site is pretty Damn good, I dont see very many bottom feeding Losers like Jersey and his lover Max on here!! This is one of the few places I even blog at anymore because of these "Cyber Losers"!! The best thing to do with these Shiht bags is to NOT Respond to them, no matter how hard it is. They will NOT stick around if they dont get the attention they are seeking. I wanted to respond to him badly, but I am holding myself back and talking to a real Bear fan instead of an Idiot!! But I do think this is a really good site, and you help make it fun.. BEAR DOWN!!!
'Tis life unfortunately Trac. Without the bad, we wouldn't have a reasonable barometer for the good. Hang in there baby... the season's just around the corner (kind of) and things are just about to get interesting in April.
Draft experts split on who Bears will select with first pick

Signing CB/FS Akwasi Owusu-Ansahin in the 3rd round ... $5 million ...
... Listening to Jeff Joniak after we start Akwasi, move Will Ta'ufo'ou to linebacker, re-sign Wale and have those three guys rush the passer on every play .... priceless.
HOLY CRAP!!! Hey everyone are we sure that RT wasn't WF in disguise?
"Hurricane Chuck"...that's hilarious!
Jebus, nice chorts! I think I owned a pair of those in 6th grade.
Why cant the Bears have Cheerleaders?? So what if it is cold, nothing wrong with that,LOL!! WE can call them the "Bear Babes"!! I am prepared to vote them in!! Is it just me? How do other Bear fans think about the "Bear Babes" at Soldier Field?? The way I see it, the more Bear Babes, the Better!! GO BEARS & BABES!!
Or we could call them honey bears..
wow shady..I didn't realize it was that long for them being gone....damn
BF...those nipples could cut glass!!!! YYYYEEEEEHHHHAAAAWWWW!
Just prior to Super Bowl 20 in New Orleans, founder/manager/choreographer Cathy Core was informed by Bears management that her group's contract would not be renewed to take the field for their 10th year at Soldier Field.
That was the beginning of the end of the "Stupid is as Stupid Does" MM(yellow canary sweater boy) years..
Yes, bring the Honey Bears back. We got rid of em and started sucking at football. Coincidence ?
Good enough reason for me. And for the 1st game they could be scantilly dressed until it snows.
No, I want the refridgerettes.
Refridgerettes ! Like it. Mr. Perry would too ...
How about the "Polar Bear Babes" as the Bears Cheerleaders!! Just Sayin???
Thank you Doc.
Damon Allen (CFL) passed him out ...
I'm good with just about everything tasteless (as long as it's funny), but racism and anti-Semitism. Well, I
I wouldn't beat off Kyle Orton, no matter how much I wanted to be in the NFL ...
He was funny in Wedding Crashers, bit of scene-stealer, that shit was hilarious. His stuff is hit and miss though. For every Wedding Crashers or Talladega, there's a Blades of Glory ...
By the bye, check out the Tiger Woods South Park episode where Kyle and Butters are adjudged to be sex-addicted. Genius.
Anyone see Josh Brolin in 'W' - now that was Bush, nail-on-the-head ...
Shaaaake... aaaaaand.. baaaake!
I'm not a Bruno guy, or even Borat that much... but SBC was fucking genius in Taladega.
And for the record, I actually think WF can get pretty old and dumb fast. Step brothers or whatever it was, was really terrible.
I thought stepbrothers was actually the funniest thing I had seen in awhile. Mostly because cursing makes me laugh and it had a LOOOOT of cursing. Very surprising.
For some reason I was just reminded of the Simpsons episode where a young Homer tries to get into the neighborhood kids club, aptly titled "No Homers Club"...to which Homer replies, "but you let in Homer Glumpkin"..and the response:
"It says No HomerS."
That is all.
Oh and this kills me. And I also like the song..dont judge me.
DM...hahahahahahahahahaha!!! I don't even know how to comment to that!!! LOL!!!!
Yeah. Its great.
Im pretty sure those are Amish girls? Dancing? Fucking classic.
Absolute genius. Thanks for that DM. Funny for me, but also kinda strange - that's Irish farmers man, I'm not kidding. That video is just a day on the farm ....
The Hangover was classic. It was me that doesn't like Will Ferrell (or Adam Sandler). To me they are this generation's Jerry Lewis. Oh well.
If that's the dude that made 40 year old virgin, Superbad, half-baked, knocked up ... then yeah, he's cool.
I can't abide by that shit. They make everything spicy in Thailand, I'm convinced it's to cover up the taste of the shit food. It makes the girls look really sexy though ...
Irish, that would be old age, not the spicy food.
Two years until life begins baby, yeah, I'm buyin' that now .... I have to.
Ha! let it go doc, not worth the BP raise.
..and remember kids, if you have high blood pressure, watch those painkillers m'kay ? Anything containing mefenamic acid IS NOT COOL, m'kay ?
Drugs 're baaaad M'kay? STD 're baaaad M'kay?
Oh baby Jebus no. Greg Olsen in the backfield ? Mr. No-contact football player ? Hester doing exactly what he was doing last year, even less ST ? Lovie's back :
Lovie: Hester's role on offense won't be reduced
March 24, 2010 8:27 AM | 9 Comments
By Dan Pompei
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Bears coach Lovie Smith addressed a variety of issues during a breakfast meeting with writers Wednesday at the NFL meetings. Here are the highlights:
*The plan is not for wide receiver Devin Hester to have a reduced or specialized role in the offense. Regardless of what new offensive coordinator Mike Martz previously has said, Smith said he wants Hester to get as many touches on offense as possible and envisioned his role as similar to what it was in the past.
*Greg Olsen will be used in an H-back role in addition to tight end.
*The team is still considering adding a veteran backup quarterback.
*Smith is concerned about the safety position and the depth at cornerback.
*The strong-side linebacker position will be up for grabs with Nick Roach, Hunter Hillenmeyer and Jamar Williams in the mix. If the Bears re-sign Pisa Tinoisamoa, as they want to, he would be in competition as well.
*Israel Idonije is being moved back to defensive end from defensive tackle.
*Danieal Manning and Craig Steltz look like the starting safeties now, though Smith was noncommittal about who would play strong and who would play free.
*The lead candidates for nickel back are Corey Graham and Tim Jennings.
*Smith and the Bears supported the new overtime rules.
Man, these guys are fucking thick. They just refuse to learn from their many previous mistakes. Although, who knows what these guys are actually going to do since we never damn well know until they do it:
* Hester in the same role - HUGE mistake and everyone including Hester himself have admitted so. Same old lovie
* Olsen at
I saw what you did there MB.
Here you go Mbizzle. Pimpin ain't easy, but on the internet it is.
The owners also approved a couple more rules to pussy up the game.
1. No longer can a defenseless player be hit in the head or neck area by an opponent who launches himself and uses his helmet, shoulder, or forearm to make contact.
2. The NFL will adopt the college rule that if a ball carrier's helmet comes off during a play, the play is ruled dead and the ball is spotted at the spot of the whistle.
I understand the NFL is moving towards player protection more and more (with all the data regarding the amount and severity of concussions.) I also understand the need to have a rule to avoid players leading with the crown of their helmet when launching into players. But, for fuke sake, a defender should be able to lead with their shoulder and certainly their forearm. The progression seems to be giving offensive players way too much latitude and leniency in regards to rules and taking those away from defensive players (thinkin about the progression of pass interference). But, how the hell are safeties and corners supposed to protect the middle of the field? The league is taking too many things away from the defensive side of the game. Also, I have never seen a player carrying the ball get injured when losing his helmet during the play and getting tackled. Again, I get the rule, but haven't seen the injuries leading up to it.
This is football. People like it because of the contact, the hits, the physicality. The league is taking that away slowly.
BAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA... Crown, you are the shizzle, mynizzle!
Those are superb. Not quite as sick as the one from IGGYS, but impressive nonetheless. Alas, I do believe that my pimp-costume-wearing days are relatively numbered. With a wife, daughter, and another on the way... I think the only costume I'll be donning this Halloween is Mr. Mom: http://images.chron.com/blogs/popsculture/mr.-mom.jpg
As for the No Fun League rules, we
Boxing lost out because they went 100% pay per view and "all" of the modern era boxers became bums thanks to managers like Don King. If the NFL ever thinks it can make more money by going 100% pay per view it will die on the vine as well. The NFL is experimenting with this on Thurs. nights and their greed will get the better of them if they aren't careful. That of course in only my opinion. I remember Saturday fight nights and wide world of sports showing fights on the weekends. Those were the days.
I used to watch a guy called Danny "Little Red" Lopez who would get the crap kicked out of him every time he fought but almost always he would knock out his opponents with a barrage of punches out of nowhere at the end of every fight.
Sounds like Muhammad Ali. Bada Bing !
This ones for Doc. I am sick to my stomach after reading this.
I've had enough of the experiments. Get a true #1 recevier and admit you don't know shit about the offensive side of a football team. Lovie...pass the phone to Martz and go to your room, I'm done talking to you.
From the comments below that depressing read
March 24, 2010 1:32 PM
Maybe the best KO weapon ever... converted to a mediocre WR by the Bears. Priceless...
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Dumb fucker Lovie. Our only hope is if #23 starts bringing a few to the house. Then the calls for him to return kickoffs will grow too loud to ignore even for Lovie. You are going to have to play your way back onto them Devin. I know that you can.
Bear Down despite our clueless coach.
Craig 'AntiPlank Weapon' Steltz is our starting safety? When the fuck did THIS happen? He's going to continue to bring the hurtin' to players on his own team, great. Start with breaking Daniel's ribs so we can have a real FS.
Josh Bullocks, Alfalfa, even 'No Payne' are better SS choices. Jack 'Assassin' Tatum back there with Gary 'State Trooper' Fencik would be a better choice. For Lovie to say that is pure unrefined idiocy.
Note the way he puts his feet right in front of ol' Sammy's face. As if to say: 'This is my turf, bitch'
I'd like to congratulate Peter King, who told us only 2 days ago that the new O.T. rule would NOT pass before next year.
More SOLID info for from another so-called, "insider".
Jersey made another video, and he's been exposed...
" He is what we thought he was" ...wow crown...youch!!!!!....again I'm stupified with that video...lol
Jerseyflyer buys a taco....
Crazy Al wants to trade JaMarcus for McNabb and Vick.
Here's one for the Professor in Tuscon:
Sammy White got his head ripped off in Super Bowl XI. Complete this sentence:
That was the last Super Bowl to be played in -------- --------
Atogwe soap opera
So it seems the Rams will draft Suh and get who they can off the Eagles. As they should. The Lions will still get a great tackle though. Mr. Atogwe will not be a Bear methinks. Sign Sharper to a 10 gazillion one year deal and draft the stud next year ?
Jake Plummer got a call from the Bears as the #3
I believe the only reason they are doing this is because Hester's contract has all sorts of incentives in there regarding playing time/number of snaps/etc. Hester cannot only return kicks and he's afraid he'll get hurt doing both. He wants the money. I guarantee 100% this is Hester's call.
Be sure to click on the red links in the article above if you really want your blood to boil.
100% Trac. Definitely a big factor as well... but there was always FNF and maybe on random Thursdays if memory serves(?), always watched FNF with my dad. Loved sweetpea and the norris bros from SD.
I also think as much of a douche Dana White is, he's also a fucking marketing/promo genius. And then there's the whole MMA is just inherently much more entertaining and exciting. Anyway, was sad to see boxing
MMA was where boxing was always going, people killing each other. Like Bill Hicks said "Is Gladiators too violent? Nah, give the audience guns ...." I'd watch it then.
When boxing was boxing. Hagler & Hearns. Tyson & Holyfield. Smokin Joe, Gorgeous George, Ali, Sugar Ray ... I can't watch any of these bums these days. You know things are bad when white guys start becoming heavyweight champion of the world. Again.
WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?! we make ALL these good moves and you want to put Greg Olsen at H-Back? are you fucking kidding me? smh....wow....not coming back on here until sunday. this is bullshit.....
Olsen is literally the only person they could put on the field in Jason McKie's spot that would be a reduction in blocking ability. What a fucking joke. If they seriuosly do that frequently I won't watch a single fucking game next year.
I guess I should've known that was a setup for a joke. But how badass is Snoop Dogg that I just take the fact that his is carrying around an umbrella as fact, without question.
I would like to get to the point in life where people dont question the fact that I walk around with an umbrella all the time...
indeed, DM, indeed.
Oh, and I have to recant, or at least revise, my last statement to you DM. Your response was both logical AND funny.
10 Points... but 2 demerits (for the technically wrong answer) so net of +8 points (how's that for
Sorry, MB. That's a ten yard flag on the false start bro ...
I thought false starts were 5 yards.
And that's an illegal motion on Quinn, stroking the QB.
In reading another article addressing a veteran backup QB, a thought come to me that is almost unthinkable but has to be discussed in my opinion.
What if the Bears start the first 4 games of the season with the Bad Cutty not the good Cutty? Caleb Hanie.............Seriously. To me the backup QB is arguably more important with "This" team than a hit and miss FS signing. I can't tell you how many times the wheels have fallen off a team when OC's or DC's are canned and the very next year it becomes obvious that the people that lost their jobs weren't necessarily the problems in the first place. For argument sake, what should be done if Cutty continues the red zone picks? Shouldn't a team at least have the option of sitting a quarterback that needs to sit? Say what you will about Grossman but at least we had Griese and Orton to step up capably when he was hurt or needed to be hurt. To me, this is a nightmare waiting to happen.
I don't care if they bring in Joe Montana, John Elway or Steve Young...Cutler needs as much grooming as possible. Cutler is the face of this franchise and this coaching staff can not afford to screw this kid up. Do whatever it takes.
A veteran would definitely help, not just the team, but Jay. Steve Young learned everything from Jimmy Mac by sitting on the bench at BYU, he said. I'm not suggesting bench our boy, but that may be necessary if he comes out gunslinging and has 12 interceptions by game four. The thing is Marc Bulger isn't Jim McMahon.
Yep, said it a while ago.
I think we should go after Kolb or Bulger (if possible)
I realize that, what about the other part? Is Jay our Quarterback even at 3 wins and oh, let me see, maybe 7 losses even if we don't have Kolb or Bulger? Have you seen the teams we have to play this year? Brutal.
I'm with you man.
What really has me concerned was the article I posted above. We're still a running football team(even with this line?), Our offense won't really change that much(you gotta be kidding me?). I really think LS would be better off saying, "No comment" and close his pie hole.
Bigtime we'll be okay. Cutler has more potential than a robot like Philip Rivers or Peyton Manning. A diamond in the rough.
Exactly how I felt about Urlacher during the pre-season, Trac. What if Lac goes down ? And he did. And some skinny bitch took his place.
Unfortunately, I think Favre is coming back 100% for sure.
He won't make it past mid-season this year DM. I'm convinced of that...
...do you know that he
+8! Sweet. I cant wait to turn in my 1,000 credits for a stuffed animal containing questionable materials and surely asbestos.
The stuffed animal containing said carcinogenic materials is only available at the 2000 point level DM.
Does Taylor have anything left, or is he shot? Since we seem to love to stack up on DEs, and since Mark Anderson will backup Hot Peppers at LE, could we use Taylor to backup Brown at RE? Or is Hentry Melton ready to contribute?
Oh, here's the article that says Taylor is going to be released.
I do think there is something to these Honey Bears. I mean, its just a natural reaction to step up your game when you know ladies are watching. You guys know what Im talking about, remember in high school, when you knew the girl you liked was coming to watch you play, all of a sudden you became an All Pro Wide Reciever, going over the middle with reckless abandon...
You know EXACTLY what Im talking about
Hahahahaha... so true.
Butkus. Layin the wood.
I will not question Favre's ability to play an entire season. He has literally defied all logic related to the subject.
I hope you're right, but you can play with just about any ailment when your downing 50-100 vicadin's a day.
I predict that Peppers will be all over Favre this year, not once but twice.
Precisely. Everyone's like "Oh Brett's so tough ... he plays through it ... he feels no pain .."
Brett Favre hasn't felt anything since about 1986 .....
Hey, jerseyflyer made a video....
Here's the original GP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JMOh-cul6M
Jagerbombs.... Jagerbombs.... Jagerbombs....
Jagerbomb ? A.K.A. Belfast Bomber. And from my recollection of the Galway Races some years ago, consumption of only three such beverages on an empty stomach was enough to challenge my motor faculties somewhat, where your body is pissed but your mind isn't. A fascinating, yet slightly uncomfortable paradox. I probably topped up with unaccompanied beer somewhere along the way, but such drinks don't really count in a country where drinking is the national pastime.
So remember kids, have the full Irish breakfast before engaging the Belfast Bombers - from your friendly Staley the Bear responsible drinking advisory bureau.
Next week ... Tequila.
Excellent! I felt the same way Irish, the stuff is like fucking liquid Peote... uhhh.... I've read.
Sorry - I should point out that across the water 'pissed' means drunk/inebriated and not 'angry' ... although they usuall end up in the same place :o)
Rule #123: Always provide explanations for demerits.
Rule #67: No excuses, play like a champion.
Also, really? Thing was a global smash hit man. Check out how many views it has...
"Not now chief, I'm in the fucking zone!"
I could totally picture gp's depiction of JF. Your character just didn't fit, sorry.
We shall see Irish, we shall see.
I'm gonna have to remember that Zone comment for when I'm where I'm not supposed to be. Classic.
Does anybody think the Bears need to sign or draft a FS? How come nobody's been mentioning that we need a FS?
Don't feed the #1 Bears Fans... I repeat.. do NOT feed.
Patience Trac. June 1st, 12.01 A.M. Lovie jumps out of Atogwe's laundry basket as he turns in for bed, tells him the limos outside and he can sit where he wants and hold the remote. Angelo gives him the largest contract ever given to a defensive back, and Julius Peppers asks for his contract to be restructured.
I was just feeding the Bear Fan Irish. Don't worry Willie, won't do it again for at least another week.
So will Kyle have to beat off Brady Quinn ? Or will Brady Quinn be beating off Kyle Orton ? Back in his Bear days, Kyle never really got the chance to beat off Rex. But once Rex got injured, he just couldn't manage to beat off Kyle again. And then there wasn't anyone for Kyle to beat off, except himself ...
... does that make him a wanker ?
All three of those guys are wankers Irish... truth be told.
Orton goes no hands. Kyle's neck beard beat Rex off.
I feel a little queer all of a sudden - I don't know what's come over me ... Doc ! Doc ! Can you come over me .. I mean come here ? And you too Jersey, come on over and let's all make up together. Let's have that hackle-raising, haven't-spoken-to-each-other-in-three-days, angry, make-up sex. Grrr.
Eeeeewwwwww... gross. (not that there's anything wrong with it)
Jebus fucking Christo Trac... I know you're bored, but please dog don't do that... please!
+++++1000000 for willie
If you guys were the G.M with the power of personnel,who would you sign at this point in free agency for Da Bears, or would you sign anymore f-agents? If it were me, I would make at least 1 more f-agent signing. My 1st choice would be to sign Atogwe, who is the best fit here at f-safety. But if the Bears do sign one in f-agency, I think it will end up being Sharp(less money). I would be ok with that move as well. I might even go a step further with the un capped year and trade for Smiley or sign Bobby Williams as well. Then use the draft for Safety,o-line & cornerback help. How about our 1st draft pick, anyone have any suggestions??
Has to be a guard. Has to be. And I don't want the fifth best safety in the draft, I want the best - so draft him next year and get Atogwe for the time being. Personally I'd like to see us draft a receiver that doesn't have to run around in the shower to get wet, and we're pretty thin at CB ...
But Angelo will draft a DT in the 3rd. I fucking know it.
gp, that was on time.
Jason Taylor = NO. Honey Bears = YES. Taylor is a dancin with the stars kind of guy thats old, not really a brutal Bear type, not anymore anyway, no thanks!! I would rather get younger at the position rather than than older, Peppers & Alex Brown are already old enough veterans. Lets focus on the F-Safety and Guard positions first!!
Did somebody say "rules"?
The "Tuck Rule" should go.
The fewer judgement calls for NFL referees, the better.
Last I heard, that proposed change in the O.T. rules doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of passing a full vote of the owners.
Regarding O.T., I'm from the "You guys are paid to play defense, too" school of thought.
I would NOT be averse to say, having the defensive team kick-off from the 35 or 40 to start O.T. and thus, making potential crappier field position a bigger consideration in the coin toss.
Other ideas I've heard: Eliminate the O.T. kick-off and let the offense start at it's own 20. I don't think I like eliminating the special teams from the equation though.
Another one was, the team who gets posession first CANNOT kick a field goal on that first posession.
By the way, in my humble opinion, the NCAA form of O.T. is an I also hold Hockey Shootouts in very low esteem.
Well Al, it did happen, and the owners passed the bill to change the O.T rules.. I dont know what to think. It could obviously go one way or the other, just like games go now!! WE shall see how it works out, this year. I kinda like the idea of keeping it equal, rather than a coin toss. When it comes to a coin flip to decide your fate, it just doesnt seem fair. unlike the 1 possession each idea, or the first to score a touchdown 1st. I like it, it is too easy to get in field goal range these days, when you get that 1st possession of the coin flip..
No, If Jersey was a sexual act he would be a pocket Pusseee,LOL!! He feels the need to constantly Fulfill the mans desires, LOL!! The sad thing is that he Brags about it, LOL!! But Max and Jersey will be Forever linked as internet Lovers, I know, it is making me sick too!!
I dont know the truth of the rumor, But the Bears apppear to be aggressive this year!! Go Bears!!
Only aggression I want to see is from the defense and the offense when playing and WINNING frikin' games during the regular, playoff and superbowl season. End of conversation!
I'll believe that when we start tackling in practice BF.
good luck with that. Will have to wait till we get a real coach in Halas. I'm going to sit on the Easter Bunny's lap and whisper what I want for easter to him. shhhhhhhhhhhh.....
"Cowher in 2011 please mr. easter bunny"
Hey Irish, here's some answers to your earlier "top ten" questions. I'll keep it in the family (i.e. division). Top rapist has to be Mossy "Aunteater" Cade of Green Bay, who raped his wife's aunt. I think he's the guy who had a cheap shot on Matt Suhey back in the Forrest Gregg days. Top wife beater would be Warren Moon, who strangled his wife with a telephone cord, but didn't cost him his commentator job on TBS or TNT. Top sexual assaut without prosecution would be James Lofton, who also was a commentator. You forgot top drive by shooter, Tyrone Williams for Green Bay, who served his six months after Green Bay won the 1996 Super Bowl. He got to serve his sentence in the off-season because he was a starter at corner on the SB team. Lucky for him he was a bad shot. Speaking of fudge Packers, I read in one of my Mom's People or Star magazines that Liberace's first sexual experience was with a Packer OL while on the nightclub circuit as a teenager. Makes sense, since the Pack "sucks".
Dropping Jagerbombs in Packer orifices, and inventing rap...
Thanks Cor. Can we get these up on Chicago Now besides the 'Ten Best Places To Eat Nachos' in Chicago columns ?
I had Warren Moon down and then crossed him off because I couldn't find the source ! A very boring read, but full of far out stuff is NFL Pros and Cons. The back appendix is a rap sheet (rape sheet?) for NFL players and it's some heavy reading. I've never understood men who exert physical force on women - especially muscular professional athletes. What's the deal there psychologically ?
And we know who you are Dennis Green !
Then there's the guy who people think he cut his wife's head off but probably just paid a crack head to do it ....
Wow, looooootta packers in there Corm
I like the rule change. The better team should win, you can't turn it over, and you'd better have good cornerbacks ...
I like the idea of extending the game where it stands. Just let 'em keep playing on the current drive. Fuck it.
Think about it, the Honey Bears would make home games so much Sweeter, LOL!! The cold weather could bring out the best in them, Hmm. Just Sayin.. Well it is the offseason, I think of all kinds of things, like a F-Safety! You all knew this was coming, didnt you? I am determined to be heard, give us a F-Safety Damn it!! GO BEARS!
I hated hockey shootouts too, until I went to the UC earlier this year and saw the Hawks go 12 rounds with Columbus...the whole place was going crazy...it was awesome.
Its a terrible way to end a game, but god dammit it was entertaining.
Yes I do, brings it back for me, good work DMB.
Oops. NCAA O.T is an absolute, total and complete abomination.
Apologies to Da Coach's Stache ahead of time
If jerseyflyer were an act, he'd be dook lasagna
Ain't that the truth. The more famous you are the more crazy the shit you can wear and people call it fashion, try that shit on the hood ....
There was one guy in 'I'm gonna git you Sucka!' that represents every one of those guys : Snoop, Puffy, Kanye etx. Antonio Fargas A.K.A. Fly Guy leaving prison after a stretch ...
Dude, Irish... every fucking halloween where I've gone as a pimp (yes, there's been more than one), I've tried to find those sick-ass platform shoes with fuckng FISH TANKS in the soles.
Hole beJebus (my favorite) those things are FO SHIZZZYYY!
I can actually picture Snoop turning up at the Oscars like that ... lava lamp heels would be cool if you could plug them into your phone or something ...
Ok, so here's my bold prediction... it's always a really bad move to go against an ego the size of Farve's, but I will anyway for the hell of it.
2010 - Farve thinks about the Carolina (Can you say Julius
MB, Favre knows if he returns, he is going to get a serious Asss kicking this year, as other teams will follow the Saints attack mode strategy. Favre already knows Peppers has his number, as well as McKinnies(who may want to retire as well)! LOL!!
Anyone afraid of the Vikes on here ? Last I remember we handed them an L with a sucky team .... this year we'll have Justin Smiley, OJ Atogwe and Brandon Marshall, right Jerry ?
I saw what you did there.
I saw how you did that thing with 'Nab' again.
OT rules passed. good thing is it's for postseason only (got damn that fucking Brett Favre)
FQ, did the beat off rule pass too?
still voting on it lol.
they say (now this is interesting): Minny passed on this 1. but the other 3 NFC North teams (including our beloved Bears), were in favor of it. now what to make of this hobgoblin bullshit?
The beat off rule?
still voting on the beat off rule lol
So that is how Rex kept winning those QB competitions. Please no film breakdown on that Roy.
And we already have inside information that there is no way that Quinn is going to do that so idk what's going to happen.
why so mean to Jersey? we should all hug our neighborhood racist lol
Check it out FQ, I turned around the helmet for ya brah. You are now UNIQUE.
lmao preciate it bro
Okay. Who brought up the fkn Brady Quinn thing ...?
We couldn't find $1.8 M for Mike Bell ? What they hey ? Still need a bruising half back guys ...
A New Orleans Saints spokesman said Tuesday night that the team will not match the Philadelphia Eagles' offer to restricted free-agent running back Mike Bell.
The Saints had until midnight Tuesday to match the Eagles' one-year, $1.7 million offer, but vice president of communications Greg Bensel told The Associated Press in an e-mail that the team would not.
Khalid Bell is gonna be our bruiser. (uh oh)
haven't been on in a while but it's nice to see all you crazy kids getting along.
Jersey, you are officially a tool again.
So does Cutler have to beat off Hanie and Bassanez in training camp ? Couldn't he beat them off together or does he have to beat them off individually ?
Here's how he might do it - this is for you Jersey - should bring back some good memories .... 6 min 40 in ..
Angelo, Bring back the "Honey Bears"!! The Bear Babes can keep us fans warm, during those cold days in the stands. These hot little bodies, can warm us up a bit, just sayin! Plus a F-Safety if it is not too much to ask??
Wow. Just got a little choked up there, Doc. My pop brought me to see Star Wars in the cinema when I was 5 years old. The opening scene where the Tantive IV gets pursued by the Star Destroyer blew me away and changed my life forever. What's cool for your son is that he doesn't have to wait like 30 years for all the episodes to come out, and he gets the digital remasters, kids aren't killing each other for Stormtrooper figures....
Then again, the anticipation, the buying of the comics, the long waits .... ah, good memories man, thanks for sharing !
P.S> Vader turned back to the light side in the end, so let the force be with Doc Little.
He smoked the Emperor and saved Luke's shit. Took his time doing it though.
Or dreaming of one day *being able* to say "hey, I have a girlfiriend..." .... ha.
Because he's 41 Doc. I'm a few years away, but I know that 5-6 years down the line, being chased by guys like J-Gohst Peppers wouldn't sound like much fun to me.
We've all seen that it only takes one play (#54, Oisa, Peanut, the packers LB, etc...). And that one play can happen at any time, any game.
what about towley?
Got me there, gpldan.The Rose Bowl, but I had to look it up.
As an Irishman I would have said 'black and white'. BADA BOOM !
The best clip is right at the end and the second part of the episode is not on the internet ! Definitely one of the funniest things I've ever seen when you see it all. That show was British comedy at its fucked up darkest and best.
Did you see Butters in the Tiger Woods Apology Episode, where he sees his first Bush and has to attend a sex-addiction clinic ? Genius. S14E01 if you're one of those torrent downloading types ...
But Cartman and Stewie from Family Guy shall remain kings of their respective piles for me :o)
