Audibles From the Long Snapper

So a minicamp is in the book and now comes the long peaceful wait for training camp.

Lovie Smith is Swallowing the Happy Pills

"I'm excited,'' Smith said. "There's nothing to not like about what we did. Getting Brian (Urlacher) back at his position and seeing Brian and Lance (Briggs) back together, and Pisa Tinoisamoa also coming back. Then seeing Chris Harris back on the field and hearing his voice, along with seeing Julius Peppers. I see Tommie Harris in the best health he's been in. Mark Anderson ... seeing Zack Bowman continuing to make progress ... it kind of goes on and on. We like what we saw out there.''

Who else is booking their hotel rooms for Dallas in February?  It's nice to see Lovie Smith excited about the defensive outlook for the 2010 season but I'll temper my enthusiasm for the time being.  Unless Julius Peppers produces at a Pro Bowl level and Chris Harris stays healthy, the Bears will have a difficult time improving arguably the worst defensive unit in franchise history.


Mark Anderson: Defensive Key
Vaughn McClure calls Mark Anderson the likely starter opposite Julius Peppers and how he performs may very well determine the success of the entire unit.  Anderson has been the Lovie love affair I've yet to understand and with Alex Brown no longer serving a purpose here (and only finding a home with the measly Super Bowl champions), the pressure will grow weekly on #97.  And there's one place in particular (read: here) that will closely monitor both his sack totals and his play against the run - Brown's strongest asset.  

Wanted: Veteran Quarterback
The consistent word out of Halas Hall is that Mike Martz wants a veteran backup quarterback.  The reason?  Simple.  He knows there isn't a second, viable professional quarterback on the roster and he's worried about his offensive line's ability to protect.  (The idea of bringing Trent Green in is intriguing but Green's brain should be his priority.)  Martz has gone overboard in his praising of the quarterback, backs, tight ends and receivers but he's not said too much about the fellas responsible for keeping defenders from breaking their bones.  A veteran backup is a good idea.  Marc Bulger is the guy.  

Final Word: I hate to let my theatre self crossover into my football self but methinks the ladies doth protest too much.  When someone keeps telling you how good they are, chances are they aren't that good.

  • Seems like we've heard this song and dance routine before, no?

  • * Just like GP's thoughts on King... Martz is slanging shit faster and harder than a one-handed cow herder

    * 100% on Bulger. I've said it for months. We need a vet QB, and Bulger is the man for the job. It's common fucking sense. How could he not be the right guy?

    * Get TO. Throw some cash his way... it's worth a try.

  • This is our problem. Lovie needs to stop blowing smoke up all the players skirts and start telling them to get better. I see too much back patting and the preseason hasn't even begun yet. These guys are past the collegiate level now and Lovie should stop pinching every ones ass.

  • He likes pinching asses Trac.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Ditka........you guys haven't proven shit. Get your pathetic asses back on the field and kick some ass or I'll find someone that will. You guys are a bunch of pansies and unless I start hearing helmets cracking don't even look in my direction. Back in '61 we would have chewed you up and crapped you for breakfast.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I am a little lost here though.. The worst defense we have ever had in the history of Chicago Bears. If that is the case.. I guess all those probolwers on our team me nothing. Sure, they haven't won a championship but someone once posted on here that it takes a team. Not just a one player to win a championship.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I do see Lovie Smith on happy pills. Would you want someone to tell you that your team sucks , when everyone else is saying it? I mean, I know our defense is looking pretty good. You can't deny that. Mike Martz doesn't seem to be blowing smoke but he is hinting a lot of little things. He never talks about our O-line, and I trust Mike Tice, but Mike Martz thinks that the O-line can't block long enough to throw those balls deep. So, I think the main problem still is the O-line. Mike Tice is the one taking happy pills. Not Lovie. If you believe that Peppers, Harris, Urlacher, Briggs, Pisa, Indonjie, Tillman, Bowman, won't be good. Your on crack.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    that's Chris Harris not Tommie I assume

  • In reply to luftwaffle:

    Yep, I don't know where Tommie Harris or has gone. I just hope he comes back since someone else is better than him on the d-line now.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    We'll know about Tommie in week one. My money's on Tommie. If he says he's back I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. They can't double him AND Chili. We won't need to blitz as much this year, it's all good.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    So if Lovie is on some pills .. Mike Tice is slipping them in his coffee because I know that O-line is not as good as he says it is. Period.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    In fairness to Tice - he's seen Louis/Asiata/Marten ... and we haven't. He says he likes Webb, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt on that guy too. Week six on - or thereabouts - will tell us where the line is at. As long as they're clearing snow by Christmas ...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Question: what was the tone in TC like in '06? b/c if they were positive then, why shouldn't they be positive now? what do you want them to say: "our team blew ass last season and we're gonna blow ass this season," "yea i threw 25 picks last year and am trying to double that margin," "even though i was out for the whole season, i think we STILL won't do anything w/ me in the lineup." c'mon now....what's wrong w/ SOME optimism? it's not even TC yet and everybody's writing up a 2-14 season....damn....can we at least ENJOY what our team is doing first, wait 'til the season starts, and IF they fuck up, call them out on it then? first serious football news in idk how long and everybody's looking forward to the '11 football season....y'all kill me.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Thank you FQ.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Sunday's warm weather caused one notable member of the offense to vomit in the bushes next to the practice field. Hmmm.. I wonder who puked? It wouldn't say.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Be positive when you see positive things FQ. I'm just making fun of this group of coaches(Lovie in particular) because I definitely want some grounded optimism not rampant starry eyed BS.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Where is the starry eyed BS? We should have the best linebackers in the league, we should have the best de because he is being paid to be the best, Tillman had 2 interceptions to Bowmans 6 last year and I think Bowman wants to prove something because he wanted espn to tell everyone on paper that the DB's domninated. So I can only see a lil bit of BS with Bowman and Anderson.. besides that we have a defense. They just need to stay healthy.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    learned my lesson when we signed Cutler 85. Just being cautious.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Now I see what you are saying Trac, I get it. All you had to say was Cutler.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    The only safety to catch an INT was Manning, right?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Yep.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I don't think Marc Bulger is going to be the guy.

    He's going to be too expensive for them and he's not going to want to sit on the bench.

    It has long been said that the most popular guy in a football town (and particularly in Chicago) is the second string QB. Do you want that to be Bulger? A guy who was only moderately successful in the early part of last decade with Martz's team?

    Plus something that no one is going to talk about around the Hallowed Halls of Halas is the fact that Bulger is a safety valve...if Cutler begins to orchestrate a repeat of his interception machine persona of 2009, will he be replaced? By Caleb Hanie...never. But what about Bulger? If a Pro Bowl QB is on the roster, why not insert him and bench Cutler. That KILLS Jerry from a political standpoint within the organization, so he will never do it.

    But just because the Ghost of Halas doesn't like Bulger doesn't mean squat. I don't think there is a better option out there.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    They should take their caps off and go and apologise to Brian Griese, as if ...

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I wouldve liked to see Lovie's response in person to see if he looked half asleep like he does during most of his press conferences or if he actually had some emotion in the words he was relaying. My guess, probably sounded like Forest Gump.

  • In reply to RealityCheck:

    he IS forest gump Reality.

    All of what you said makes sense Ghost. I just don't think there's anyone else better out there for the spot. Does that mean we'll go out and get him, or that he'll want the backup spot... nope. I just don't know of another choice that's available and a good fit.

    And '85 and FQ, my issue isn't that these guys are being positive. Being positive is great and is always the right thing to do, but basically saying that I've bet my daughter's college fund that this set of receivers is the best in the world and that they'll be the ones to carry this team... and that Jay has *zero* flaws... after throwing 26 INTs a mere 6 months ago.

    It's about the delivery boys. There's being positive and pumping the players up, and then there's saying such ridiculous shit and using so much hyperbole that you just sound like a pandering idiot and a raging sycophant

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    You get it MB, you really get it. I just know human nature. Coming off a year like last season, I don't think a healthy dose of humble pie will hurt anyone. Encourage but don't lull your players into complacency by going overboard, that's all.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Agreed...

    It'd also be one thing if we didn't hear this same stuff year after year.

    How about..."You know what, we have our work cut out for us. I like what I've seen, but we have a long way to go. Teams in our division are getting better and not only must we match that, we must surpass that. We have a good start here, we need a good finish."

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Thanks Trac, please excuse the terrible grammar and typos.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    aight...i can dig this here

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    He also called Hester an "elite receiver".

    I think there will be *big* changes to the O-line's performance though.

    * Orlando 'No' Pace is gone.

    * Chris Williams is where he should be, and will be from game one.

    * Omelette - I hope - won't start.

    * Beekman - I hope - will start, at Center.

    * Mike Tice will have more and better protective schemes in there than Harry Hymen and Wrong Turner had. Tice's coaching.

    * Wrong Turner is history. Say it loud and say it proud. Ding dong the witch is dead.

    * Manu. The Twelve Million Dollar man. We have the technology to rebuild the line. Better, stronger, faster.

    * The whole left side of the line will be better. No Pace/OMG at LT/RT. Instead it will be Williams/Beekman or Williams/Louis.

    * Chester Taylor in the house. Solid blocker on pickups.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    DING DONG!!!!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Dude.. I cried when I chipped my front tooth and got a root canal because it hurts like a hell. I don't how that guy did that.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    '85, can we sign him? I don't give a shit what position he plays... safety? ST killman?

    He's a badass regardless. Tough as nails man.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Lmao I don't care hell I think he be great guard lol

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    "I'll take all my teeth as long as we can keep winning the playoffs," Keith said. "There's no better feeling than winning games in the playoffs."

    And there are few worse feelings than root canal. Good luck with that Keith.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Don't say it! Don't! The lord baby Jebus has listened to our prayers and has Tommie, Julius, lance and Baby Jay in his eternal protective care. Also our starting linemen, Chester Taylor, and starting cornerbacks. Amen.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    If the Bears can get T.O. for around a Mil, I say go for it.

  • In reply to RealityCheck:

    No worries gents.

    We signed Iwuh.

    Super Bowl here we come.

  • In reply to JohnGalt:

    We signed Don Imus?

  • In reply to JohnGalt:

    The Bears should give hulking Blackhawk forward, Dustin "I'm going to score the winning goal today in game 4" Byfuglien at look at offesive guard.

    The a HOCKEY NEWS writer had a fantastic desciption of this guy:

    "He's the only 260 pound forward in thre NHL who plays BIGGER than that!".

    "Playing Bigger".
    Feel free to pay close attention to THAT phrase, Bears.

    Oh, and if any one around here has "cahones" like Duncan Keith, you have all my respect!

  • In reply to JohnGalt:

    Of all the reasons that Bulger will not see a Bears uniform, only remember this one:

    If Cutler goes down, and Bulger comes in and outplays him, Jerry Angelo is on the next bus out of Chicago. And he KNOWS this. Martz is under the impression he's coaching to win. Angelo is angling to keep his job, Chicago style - which means greasing the skids for somebody else to take the blame. And that person is Lovie-Dovie and the Happy Talk Express train.

    Remember last year when the slide happened. How many times did Blogfather get sick of the "we're a good football team, we just need to do better at proving it" line.

    Yeah, get ready for more of that. An 0-4 start in October, and Lovie and Martz will still be out there telling us "this is the best 0-4 team in football." and "I'm just so excited to coach this much talent, I just KNOW we'll turn it around here soon." It's like Stuart fucking Smalley is the head coach. For Halloween, Lovie will crap rainbow colored skittles out his ass.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... skiiiiiittles.

    Oh and boooooys... come June 15th look what two naughty little rugrats will be open for a deal: http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/may/23/deadline-looms-for-four-rfas/

    Those of you who've been on since last season probably remember my hard-on for Malcom Floyd as our #1. Dude is a quiet machine and is a biiiig dude who's proven he can get way open and catch anything thrown his way. Not as much a monster as BM or AB, but could easily come in and be our #1 to Amoma

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    VJ would make an awesome Bear. I think he is too important too the Chargers' success in '10 to let go.

    Floyd on the other hand, that might be something worth talking about. You should see what Larry Mayer thinks about it...only to see him answer some fag bag question about when the last time the Bears won in overtime when the weather was below zero...

    I think Malcom has continued to develope every year he has played in the league and I would love to see him continue to do so in Chi. Do u really think they might still make a move for a WR? Sounds like Martz needs to change his chonies every time he talks about the group.

  • In reply to MatthewIsMyForte:

    exactly Matty.

    No there

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It's THE bust out or die trying year, though. Once the cap comes back, thanks to the Chicago Cap company American Stitch vs. NFL Supreme Court Case, then the Bears can go back into cheap hibernation. They got the money, go get Floyd (damn I can see him in #80 already) and then I may start believing in Unicorns and rainbows too.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Going to candy mountain GP?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Yep, nab Floyd and I seriously think we could be off to Candy mountain.

    Although technically, I think that means we'd lose a kidney ...

    Bank it, your new starting Chicago Bears center is Josh Beekman.

  • In reply to MatthewIsMyForte:

    T.O. is really trying to get into Chicago. I just wish we would listen.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    T.O, Shabba, Hester...dear lord that's a scary group. Oh and Knox as a 4th receiver AND Forte and Chester Cheeto on the field at the same time. How could you stop that?

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Make Hester the 4th wideout, and just return punts. We have Manning to return kicks.

    That would be something. Earl Bennett couldn't even break into that rotation.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Put Hester back returning full time and bring him on for a few route-ones. There's definitely an echo in here ...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I don't think Martz is too worried about protection given Tice's comments : "Tice: Bears have pieces to protect Cutler"
    http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/nfl/news/story?id=5213341

    Basically he talks about all the protections he likes to carry, and securing the 'A' gap. He mentions needing smart tackles, which might mean Asiata replaces Shaeffer at some point. Shaeffer is smelling more and more like a backup to me. Louis and Asiata look to be our guys going forward. Omelette needs to get fried and we need to have zero tolerance for any decline in Kreutz' play. Slot Beekman in there the first sign of 'Say it ain't so, Joe'

    As for Lovie's happy pills, I didn't hear any spin out of him. All valid points. As long as we don't let old guys on the O-line outstay their welcome then I think we've got some possible gems waiting in the wings. Jamarcus Webb is not one of them and I'm calling him a bust right now. Tice says he wants smart tackles and Jerry drafts a dumb, lazy project who is waaay too big to play guard at 6'8. But hey, Jerry's a GM. What do we know?

    Receiver is where we'll be let down. They weren't cutting the ,mustard last year and this year it's harder. Much harder. So did they get any smarter or taller in the off-season? I'm looking at Ig-lazyarse, Knox, Hester here. In fact just write off Lazyarse anyway, he's on the Bust-train with Webb and the rest of the crap that Angelo drafted last year. Shabba will start, so will Big Bucks Hester, that leaves one more dude with regular looks. I'd feel a lot happier with a vet who knows the time of day. The regular season isn't the time to train guys up on the field. Hopefully the running game comes together and it becomes less important trying to break the world record for pass attempts (although with Martz that's a possibility).

    Can't see Anderson staring over Izzy. If it comes out of an 'experts' mouth, then the safest bet is to expect the opposite. "I'm Vaughn McClure, you may remember me from articles such as 'Arse from my elbow - introduce us' and 'Shit and shinola - are they the same?'"

    They'll rotate them anyway, so who cares? Is anyone worried about our front seven? Actually, I am, his name is Pisa and he's injury-plagued. We will miss Jamar, guaranteed.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    If that is the case Irish.. we better get rid of Tommie Harris, Urlacher, and Lance Briggs.. because injuries do just happen.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Don't you think you're being a little harsh on Webb? It might be a bit premature to be calling a 7th round pick a bust. He has great size and a violent disposition, that's plenty of upside for me to be optimistic for the kid.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I posted this yesterday, and there were no comments... it was right before the new string, so I have to believe you guys didn't catch it.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I think our biggest problem isn't talent. It's the lack of leadership and maturity. From a pure talent standpoint, the Bears have improved greatly and should compete with just about anyone. They are seriously flawed from a leadership and maturity standpoint, though. The "face of the franchise" is a loud-mouth who thinks he has done far more than he has, and the coaches are stiffs who don't have brains to put the players in good positions or the balls to get in a player's face when he screws up. The Colts and Patriots are better because their leaders are mature professionals who know how to lead by example and by getting on guys. Until we have that, we're not going very far. I'm hoping Cutler will become a leader under Martz and Tommie will grow up and come to play every week, but I'll believe it when I see it.

  • In reply to bearsfanatic:

    you know what though? maybe Peppers can take that torch (depending on how BU does this season). he's getting older & they need another leader on defense (he seems like he speaks w/ his play rather than his mouth, which is something we DESPERATELY need now). only time will tell though....

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Right on, FD. Peppers' leadership will be the key for the defense this year. If he challenges Urlacher's leadership by being a real example, Brian will have a choice to make: pick his game back up to the level he can reach at his best, or lose out to Peppers.

    I like the scenario...

  • In reply to Joseph:

    and you can't exactly single cover T.O. dude can still produce; it's more of an "over the top" at WR type thing than a "necessity." add T.O. and how the hell do you gameplan for that offense? seriously...

  • In reply to Joseph:

    So far all sports analyst are saying Knox will be better than Hester and Bennet. So.. I'm ok with any of those receiver order's but it be nice to get T.O

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    So Knox will be better than a slow guy and a fast guy that doesn't/can't block and cuts his routes short. Hmmm. I guess a kick in the shins beats a kick in the nuts any time :o)

  • In reply to Joseph:

    You couldn't. Sign him.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Either that or he wants to play beside LeBron for the Bulls.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    C'mon man - Mark Bulger can't hold Cutty's jock strap. He'd just be insurance. Jimmy Mac was INT happy too, but he was smart,although a risk-taker. Cutler's smart, and he's a risk-taker. He'll come through it, and then he might be Mac with muscles. All Cutty had to do last year was throw the ball into the bleachers 4 times a game and we're not having this conversation.

    Love and Jerry say " but if we sign you and your gonna hurt our inexpericed receivers and you could cause trouble. Our jobs are on the line and we can't risk it."

    Artoo.. processing... T.O.. give him a chance.. Jerry and Lovie.. dectecting bullshit!

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Their jobs are on the line - precisely. So who's worried about project receivers or has-beens or never-weres that can't help us win now. Apart from maybe knox.

    Fact is we don't have a tall receiver other than Shabba, and he's not that tall. Owens gives us some height, experience and who doesn't need a future HOFer on their team? I don't think we need to worry about the feelings of Iglesias, Knox, Bennett, Davis etc. The team is bigger than their feelings or 'development'. There's only so much you can make out of a turd. T.O. has maybe a year left in him at most. Having him around wouldn't kill anyone's career. They'll do that all by themselves if they can't cut it. And if we can bring Terrell on when we need HOF skill and beastly size then so be it. The smurfs can cry me a bucket of blue tears. He makes us better instantly. A bunch of six foot nothing if's and buts isn't money in the bank, they're long shots. And Jerry Angelo made the bet.

    I turned around when I read those lineman reports. Our receivers will leave a few on the field, and Cutty will sling it to the opposition some, doesn't mean we can't kick some ass.

    Bears vs. Ravens.

    Bears win. Lovie rides a pink unicorn down State Street, and gores Ditka through the mouth with the Unicorn horn. Pandemonium ensues as SuperFans are torn in how to react. It rains down purple skittles on a grey day in February. Urlacher waves his ring at Sayers from the float and yells "kiss it" to him while wearing a #41 Brian Piccolo jersey. Daley dies on the crapper, and Angelo beats out Rahm Emannuael in a tightly contested mayoral race. Butter becomes a first ballot HOFer after the Butter & Pepper combo break the all time sack record by a defensive line.

    My take on the article MB is this. First of all it is a mistake to think that Islam is frozen in time. It clearly is not. Islam is very adept at using modern era democracies and freedom of speech laws to infiltrate Democratic societies. One can argue with success that the inner battle taking place within Islam in today's time is that the violent factions are starting to outlive their usefulness of the past and the non violent advancement of Islam is becoming so successful that a change of tactics starting to take place. The critical mistake this country is making is to think that the absence of terrorism makes Islam less of a threat, on the contrary, an enemy hiding behind our laws and constitution is much harder to defeat.

    Islam will keep growin until God takes them down MB, I'm not worried but I sure as heck won't back down from their bs. To think that Islam is a religion of peace one would have to be blind. Sure, once sharia law is in place it's relatively peaceful unless you want to be stoned or decappitated. Radical Islam is a part of Islam MB. The west has ashamedly pointed a finger at radical Islam because they dont have the gonads to confront Islam directly. Saudi Arabia, Mecca must fall.

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    Anyone know what exactly happens on June 1st? We can only trade for a RFA that hasn't signed right?

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    We'd have to give a draft pick up for a RFA, so forget that happening. The McCaskeys seem to have made some deep dark deal with Cower or somebody that insures that he gets all his picks next year.

    That means guys like VJack from the Chargers won't be options.

    Because the McCaskeys deployed "The Tool" Larry M to formally deny that Olsen and Cutler were recruiting TO, that means it is exactly what was happening. Of all the Bears that TO could have run into chasing trim, it just happened to be the QB and his best pal TE, guys who could sell the Martz playbook? I don't think so. TO is still on the list, despite what anybody wants to say in public. Because it sure as hell isn't Moose "7 second 40 yard dash" Muhammed or Marty "Ready to be your valet" Booker. Isaac Bruce is an outside possibility, but please - TO brings 10x what Bruce does in.

    We all have to keep in mind that the Duke of Earl Bennett had knee surgery, and has not run publically yet. He may be done, he never had much speed to begin with, and scrapper Sheed will go over the middle and take the hit, where Bennett always preferred not to. Problem with Sheed is that he won't hang onto the damn ball.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    My understanding was that a team could still chose to trade them at any time for whatever they wanted and that we can't lose draft picks after April 15th because that is the deadline for other teams to make offers that they would have to match. Is that right?

    At first I was offended, then I read what the guy wrote and I think he's pretty much spot on:

    "Chicago Bears -- My good buddy, former Bears QB Jim Miller, thinks the Bears will win 11 games this year. I'm not sure the team has that many wins in it, but I do think Jay Cutler will benefit greatly from offensive coordinator Mike Martz. Chicago is a classic Tier-4 team that could jump up and surprise people. Julius Peppers helps the defense and it's time for the current players to answer the criticism coming from retired Bears players taking shots at the team."

    Bears v Dolphins 49-42.
    Henne hits Brandon Marshall 6 times in the endzone. Cutler throws 6 TD passes to T.O. after each pass bounces off Greg Olsen's helmet because he was checking out the chicks in the expensive seats. On Miami's apparent game winning drive, Henne calls a sweep left, hands off to Ricky Williams .. who thought Henne said 'Spliff left' and then sits down and rolls a doobie behind the left tackle. Urlacher picks up the ball Williams and the spliff and runs 76 yards for the touchdown. Henry Melton kicks the P.A.T and Chicago wins its second Lombardi. Jerry Angelo and Lovie are awarded lifetime contracts and Mike McCaskey comes out of retirement. At a postgame party, a drunken Urlacher tells Pam Oliver that he'd like to wear her like a horse's feedbag, that Virginia McCaskey is a raisin-titted old witch, and that Miami women are all sluts.

    Cutty probably has more tools than any QB in the league. Peyton Manning wouldn't scramble for a yard if you doubled his salary. Brady's hardly Usain Bolt either. Opposing defenses will be so busy covering the backs, TEs and receivers that our boy can always run like Forrest.

    You're kidding me Lovie ! You're f****ng kidding me! Shabba isn't a starter on the Chicago Bears! What does the guy have to do? The only vet receiver we have over six feet, that can run routes properly and catches every ball thrown his way. Here we go AGAIN ...

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Shabba and TO as starters! Sheed can get his scrappy self on special teams, since Little Man Wolfe is on the next bus.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    My guess is rashied is gone this year. Hopefully after signing that new LB Iwuh(sp?) Davis will get launched.

    I like Jared Allen, minus that dumb thing he does after a sack.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Personally I hate the fucker. Especially after seeing him on youtube up a tree throwing spears at animals. I guess he lives kinda far away from a supermarket. Premier pass rusher ?

    I think Jared Allen is over rated.. I mean come one. .I could play d-end if I hate the sisters taking up all the blocks

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Hey, at least he's on the team. Shabba only got playing time because of injuries and he will have opportunities so I wouldn't worry about the politics of whats going on behind closed doors Irish.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I did read after that on CB.COM that Lovie said there's no first or second teams yet. That's something. Time for Louis or Asiata to get Shaeffer the frak out of LG. And somebody please flip the omelette from RT ...

    The Chicago Bears football practice was delayed nearly two hours today after a player reported finding an unknown white powdery substance on the practice field.

    Head coach Lovie Smith immediately suspended practice and called the police and federal investigators.

    After a complete analysis, FBI forensic experts determined that the white substance unknown to players was the GOAL LINE.

    Practice resumed after special agents decided the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again this season.

    Mama Bear and Papa Bear were in court getting a divorce and the

    judge offered Baby Bear a choice of which parent to live with. "Do

    you want to live with your mother?" the judge asks.

    "No! She beats me." answers the baby bear.

    "OK, then you can live with your father." says the judge.

    "No! He beats me too!" cries baby bear.

    "Okay, well you have to live with someone. Who do you want to live
    with?"

    The baby bear thinks about it for a while, and replies "I want to live with the Chicago Bears. They don't beat anybody!"

    Max, honestly, what the fuck is wrong with you? This is a forum for Bears fans to come together to talk about our team and you are somehow insulted when you come on, provide no value, are not a Bears fan and throw out useless antagonstic remarks? The reason you see UNSUBSCRIBE after your posts is because you are a distraction, like an annoying 3 year old, who is old enough to know better but has something slightly off in the wiring on his brain. Just go away and provide insights on the Packers on your own blogs. Holy shit i've never felt more sorry for you. I can't believe there are people out there that do this.

  • In reply to MadMaxRockatansky:

    Looking back at week 16.. I was watching Peppers vs Mn.. because seriously..that's who it was playing in that game Pepepers.. against MN. They had to double him every time and still couldn't stop him. Then I was thinking..I wonder if peppers choose the bears so he could break the most sacks in a game against MN lol!

    Two Green Bay Packer fans are hunting out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy takes out his phone and calls the emergency services.

    He gasps:

    "My friend is dead! What can I do?"

    The operator says:

    "Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead."

    There is a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says:

    "OK, now what?"
