Training Camp: Right Around the Corner

Well with my World Cup postpartum soon to be relinquished by a trip to Red Bull Arena to see visiting Spurs on Thursday July 22nd, I can now move on to the American version of this game called football.  Move on to a little underachieving ballclub in the heart of the Midwest.  Move on to Saturday night hopes and dreams washed down with cool glasses of Sunday afternoon reality.  The Chicago Bears will return to training camp in seventeen days and officially launch the 2010 campaign.  And it's a campaign that will define not only the tenures of Ted Phillips, Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith but also set the stage for the next half-decade of football in America's greatest football city.  (Shut up, Pittsburgh.)

The position battles have been discussed ad nauseum and are currently being analyzed as in-depth as possible by Brad Biggs in the Trib.  The pressure on the staff and management has been hashed out in newspapers, blogs and on that most-trustworthy of four-letter cable networks.  The Chicago Bears, in seventeen days, exit the land of the hypotheticals and enter Bill Parcells' "psychology of results".  In seventeen days, performance is what matters.  Will Mark Anderson earn the starting end spot?  Will Matt Forte hold off Chester Taylor?  Will Jay Cutler adapt to Mike Martz' system?  Will the Bears have a pair of viable starting safeties on the roster?  And those are just the camp questions.  

Two months from now the Detroit Lions will enter Soldier Field to open the season, giving Da Bears their first must-win of 2010.  Yes, it is a must-win.  Teams that want to go to the postseason don't lose to the Detroit Lions at home.  Hell, teams that want to win a chamionship don't lose to the Detroit Lions in a schoolyard brawl.  Not yet, anyway.  And every loss - especially early in the season - will be met with stinging criticisms from local media, boos from desperate fans and speculation about Bill Cowher's real estate interests in the greater Chicagoland area.

And damn I'm glad.  I'm tired of the media posturing and coaching shifts.  I'm tired of hearing how good this roster is and how primed-for-a-title the Chicago Bears are.  I'm ready to sit on the third stool from the end at Josie Woods and look up at the television screen.  I'm ready to see what the Chicago Bears are against actual NFL competition.  I'm ready to watch Lovie Smith coach with his life on the line.  And more than any of that...

I'm ready to win a Super Bowl.

  • Damn.. it's almost here isn't it?

  • Love your blogg. I cant wait for the season to start.
    From the biggest Bears fan in Norway!

  • In reply to skjaeveland:

    The Bears used to have a Norwegian defensive back.

    His name was "Dirty" Charlie FIORD!

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I have only been following the NFL and the Chicago Bears the last four years. never heard of the Norwegian defensiv back befor. the only Norwegian NFL player I know about is Hall of Famer Jan Stenerud.

    NorBear, great to have you. Curios, why Bears and not the Queens? Ah hem, I mean Vikings.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    thanks, I love the community that you got here on the Da Bears Blog. I depend on sites like this to be able to follow my bears, since there are not many fans of the NFL here in Norway. and thank God for NFL network and their amazing game pass.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB, I really hope we're not throwing in our SuperBowl hopes towel by week 8. I can take a heartbreaking loss at the end of the season or in the playoffs but I'm soooo tired of the season being over before its over if you know what I mean.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    yeah Trac, unfortunately that's been the pattern lately huh?

    I'm pretty excited about this year whether we win or lose, but think with a lot of luck on the injury side we could be dangerous... just really worried about the gaps we didn't fill and our abject lack of depth. But you've all been hearing me whine about that for months now.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    By week 6 we might be wondering about it lol

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Welcome, Norwegian Bear! What city are you near? I actually even know where *a few* of them are... :-)

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    nearest city is Stavanger on the west coast

  • In reply to skjaeveland:

    Stavenger was one I know, along with Narvik, Bergen, Kristiansand, and or course Oslo. Although I need dots on the map to locate them precisely :-)

  • In reply to skjaeveland:

    Welcome to the board. Albert is pulling your leg about "Dirty" Charlie Fiord. He was actually Charlie Ford and he was the dirtiest Bears player I've seen in my lifetime (50+ years of watching the Bears).

    The Bears failed this test miserably and season is about to start.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Trac, luckily that is the most irrelevant article ever because if your QB goes down so do your chances of doing anything productive during the season. Don't sweat the backup Qb thing.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I don't know. Philly had Kolb & Vick to back up McNabb last year. They could have lost their top two and still played well ...

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Maybe Kolb is good. Vick sucks Moose Wang. We beat him in his prime. #54 shadowed him all game and nullified his running ability. His passing is way below NFL standards.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    You have something Johnny. Only Backup to win the Superbowl was
    Super Bowl XXV - Jeff Hostetler, New York Giants.

    However, if Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl, anyone can.

    Thanks for posting the link Trac. Great list. What a great history. You could easily add 10 more guys for a top 20. When you're leaving out HOF'ers off your top 10 that's impressive.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    The Bears rank #7 among "Best D-line" in the NFL. I sure as shit hope so.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I still think if our lineup stays intact this year the Bears will have a top 5 defense. Does anyone really think the Bears would have been as dominating in 85 if Dan Hampton or Singletary had of gone down?

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Agree, but trac... those guys were very different players and very different men right?

    Can you imagine any of those guys acting like Butter (or peppers for that matter)... on OR off the field? Quitting, taking plays/games off, punching people, whining and crying about injuries and/or mental stability??

    Different times, different cut of man Trac. Hence my worry.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Watch the damn America's game Superbowl 20.. The best part is where the defense starts talking about getting to the quarterback.. You can watch it on Hulu.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    This is the only reason I would hesitate to bring T.O. onto my team if I'm an NFL coach. After all these years, he still just doesn't get it.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    The first day Martz screamed at TO for missing an assignment or taking a play off, he would fold and start the media games.

    Nobody wants him, but the Ravens will end up picking him up.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I dunno, if TO offered to play for the Bears at the veteran minimum... I think the guy is worth the roster spot.

    But I do not think we should go after him. He would not take the minimum and would take up resources that should be spent elsewhere during contract negotiations.

    And by the way... WRs have done worse than TO. Don't forget about good ol' Plax.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Youtube. Facebook. I agree.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Give a dog a bad name. His behaviour was exemplary last year and he played on a team that couldn't throw the ball. No one would be asking T.O. to beat guys deep, we've got HEster/Knox for that. Cutler could kill teams throwing T.O. 7 yard hitches all day. He's a pro receiver, future HOFer, with no weaknesses to his game, and he can sure as hell block on running plays unlike Hester. But we're broke. That can be the only reason he's not on the team. Are Rashied Davis and Juaquin Iglesias that vital to the Bears ? We'll only get a year out of Owens, but he could be the difference between a shot at the super bowl or not ...

  • In reply to Joseph:

    What do you think would have happened if Ditka traded McMahon and Willie Gault a year apart and failed to make the playoffs two years in a row after doing so? See ya McTool.

    I can smell the distinct aroma of football in the air. About time to get this shindig off and running.

    Don't you just love the smell of freshly cut grass? We talked about this a couple strings ago... I love that smell, takes me right back to high school, and I still get that fraction of a second where my stomach tightens up in reflexive anticipation of 2-a-days slaving under the summer sun while all the other slackers are still lounging at the beach for another month.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Yeah he was the backup Trac. Trent Green was the starter. He was hurt in I believe the last pre season game, and they went into the season with an unproven backup,Kurt Warner. The rest is history.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    According to NFL stats, Warner was considered the season starting QB which disqualifies him from being a backup. Move along now, nothing to see here.

    just watched the rookie mini camp episodes on the site. Holy crap do i want the season to start right now. I'm giddy just thinking about that first kickoff. Will it be Hester, Knox or Manning? Will they take it all the way? Will Martz come in the first play of the season and just fucking bomb it to Hester, Knox or DA? When will Peppers get his first sack and how crazy will the stadium get the first forced fumble or pick that we get? Will the fans boo if Cutler throws a pick? Will they lose heart quickly like i think they will? Will Tim Shaw blow someone the fuck up on special teams and force a key fumble and change of possession? Will Freddie Barnes make the squad? Will he take Earl Bennett's place? Will Iglesias come out and blow our minds? Can Tommie Harris and Mark Anderson take advantage of Peppers being out there and make some plays? Will we stay healthy through the pre-season? All of these questions keep dancing in my mind. 15 days boys and it all begins.

    yea and i'm more inclined to side w/ the Scouts article (not b/c it's in favor of the Bears, but b/c it's based off empirical data).

    now i'm becoming more and more of a "fan" of Quentin Tarintino Jr, but game tape doesn't lie. Scouts Inc. breaks down game tape, numbers, and other shit that is not completely off a person's opinion. i sure hate it for the ppl that actually pay for these opinions smh.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    hells yes!

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Sounds like it was written by a guy who newver watched a Bear's game ...

    "Devin Hester and Johnny Knox are going to end up as the Bears' starters"

    - totally correct, because Lovie never picks his actual best team. Only Lovie could leave his best receiver off the starting 11.

    "But his skill set just doesn't mesh with what new offensive coordinator Mike Martz requires from this position. Hester and Knox have those skills."

    - Bullshit. Martz requires smart receivers who can quickly adjust on the fly. Devin Hester and Johnny Knox do NOT fit that bracket, and were lost in space last year. The playbook just got twice as big, everything is called something else now, and Cutler will be throwing the ball at empty spaces in the timing offense. Spells disaster for those two boys. They'll explode out of their breaks, but in the wrong direction, And Martz is big on blocking when you're number isn't called. Also definitely not in Hester's skill set. Hester and Knox's skills are running very fast and playing 'tag me'. Period.

    "Hester's and Knox's roles will overlap to some degree."

    - True. Especially when their routes overlap and they knock each other out.

    "I expect Hester to lead the Bears in receiving."

    - How? When just after that he says Knox will be the deep threat and Shabba will move the chains ... and then there's Cutler's eye-magnet, Ponyboy Olsen.

    "Without getting too much into the tight end position, Greg Olsen also should see a role as a detached receiver."

    Why? Isn't he a tight end? Why would we use Olsen instead of Kellen Davis anyway? Does Olsen catch the ball better ? No. Is Olsen a better blocker? No. Is Olsen taller? No. Can Olsen break tackles? No. As far as I can see, the only advantage to having Olsen on the roster is to provide depth if the other 3 guys in front of him go down. He doesn't do anything better than the others. Nothing. Not catching, not running, not blocking. Throwing charity events, maybe.

    "...but Olsen and Aromashodu are the only two prominent weapons with size to succeed in tight quarters"

    - Again, whoever wrote this isn't familiar with the roster. :"MY NAME IS KELLEN DAVIS - NUMBER 87 - THROW ME THE BALL!!"

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    thaaaat's myboy. +1

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    so my homeboy has Insider from the 4-letter network (*laugh track*). here's what Kiper said a/b the Bears in 1 article:

    Crucial influx: First of all, I realize the Bears were the team most would grade "incomplete" for the draft. If you get a good starter or two out of a draft where you have five total picks and none before No. 75 overall, you've done extremely well. But I think the Bears have a chance. Major Wright was a solid value pick at a position where they needed him -- he can compete to start early on in an admittedly thin secondary. The Bears did their damage in free agency, of course. Let me say this: There's been a knock on Julius Peppers about his consistency. The guy's been in the league eight years and has 10.5 sacks or more in six of them! Is he worth the money they threw at him? You know what they say about past results and guarantees, but no evaluator in the world would tell you he's anything less than one of the best defensive ends in the league when he's 100 percent. At worst, he's an upgrade; at best, he can change the opposition's game plan.

    The question mark: The wide receiving corps is considered thin by a lot of people, but I know for a fact the Bears' staff feels a lot better about this group than everyone else. A lot of it isn't just the personnel -- believe it or not, Johnny Knox, Devin Hester and Devin Aromashodu all have the potential to do well. I think the bigger issue is getting them on the same page with their quarterback and having Jay Cutler process Mike Martz's system. The real area of concern for me is the secondary. While the Bears might be much improved in the front seven, if they don't get pressure, that secondary is shaky as it stands now.

    Next April's pick, now: Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia
    Boykin doesn't have the unusual size of a guy like Patrick Peterson, but he's a competitive ball-hawking corner who can fly

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    and here's the Scouts, Inc. article in depth a/b the receiving corp:

    Devin Hester and Johnny Knox are going to end up as the Bears' starters. I am very confident in that. That's not intended to slight Devin Aromashodu, who was very impressive at the end of the 2009 season. But his skill set just doesn't mesh with what new offensive coordinator Mike Martz requires from this position. Hester and Knox have those skills. Think of the early-2000s St. Louis Rams' "Greatest Show on Turf," with small, quick wideouts who explode out of their breaks and are excellent after the catch. That is Hester and Knox, who not only possess those qualities, but also have blazing speed.

    I expect Hester to lead the Bears in receiving. He will be moved all over the formation and will be the recipient of more quick-hitting passes than Knox or Aromashodu, who still will receive plenty of playing time when Chicago often goes to its three-wide package. Hester's and Knox's roles will overlap to some degree. But I foresee Knox as the home run threat -- the guy who runs away from a corner and runs under Jay Cutler's tosses.

    Knox should be the split end in Martz's scheme, which was Torry Holt's role on one of the greatest offenses in NFL history. Knox's production dropped off noticeably as the season wore down, but that could have been the result of hitting a rookie wall. Aromashodu will move the chains and provide a more physical presence. He plays big and Cutler trusts him.

    Earl Bennett and Juaquin Iglesias will provide solid depth. Bennett did take a step forward from his rookie campaign. He is a move-the-chains player who is best out of the slot, but he lacks the dynamic traits that Martz insists his receivers have. Bennett is recovering from offseason knee surgery. When Chicago goes three-wide, Hester is a much better slot option than Bennett. Iglesias should take a step forward in his second season, but playing time will be tough to find.
    Hester, Knox and Aromashodu give Martz and Cutler an awful lot of options to work with. And the varying skill sets should complement one another quite well. And overall, this entire group of wideouts is still quite young.

    Without getting too much into the tight end position, Greg Olsen also should see a role as a detached receiver. I see this happening near the end zone. While Martz is notorious for neglecting his tight ends, Cutler often stared down Olsen in this area of the field. That too often resulted in end zone interceptions, but Olsen and Aromashodu are the only two prominent weapons with size to succeed in tight quarters. It should be noted, though, that Olsen could stand to play the game with more physicality.

    In the end, I think Chicago is set up well with pass-catchers for Cutler. And, as I have stated several times of late, Chicago could be primed to be that out-of-nowhere team in 2010.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    The scouts lowdown on Knox ...

    http://www.windycitygridiron.com/2010/7/13/1567209/chicago-bears-wide-receiver#storyjump

    Two projects as our starting receivers? Two guys with route running problems and no strength. Jump balls not a part of their repertoire. Not good.

    I'd feel way better going with Shabba and T.O. on the outside - let the Knox/Hester monster compete for the slot.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Agree with you Irish 1000% Shabba and T.O on the ends would be scary

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Unga Bunga can catch out of the backfield, that probably gave Martz his hard-on for the kid.

    Face it, the Kahlid Bell experiment is over. He has no wheels. It's Forte-Taylor-UngaBunga and Wolfe because he's a special teams gamer (he runs underneath all the people blocking him).

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Poor Will Taufoou, will he ever be given a chance by you guys.

    I mean, the dude scored a TD in his first NFL play ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsEo9-Z--dU

    I'll post this again... check out the two catches he makes, BOTH rough throws: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uEh8JoB7oQ&feature=related

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Will is 1 of 2 FB on the roster MB. I think he has a damn good chance to make the team unless they keep a 4th TE. I have given him praise in the past. I hope he makes it.

    Here is the roster breakdown of the current TE's and FB's on the team:

    FB's:

    Will Ta'ufo'ou 5-11 247

    Eddie Williams 6-1 249

    TE's:

    Greg Olsen 6-5 255

    Brandon Manumaleuna 6-2 295

    Desmond Clark 6-3 249

    Kellen Davis 6-7 262

    Richard Angulo 6-8 260...jebus this guy is a freak of nature also!

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Thanks Joe.

    I could have sworn that we've signed another at least 3-19 TEs this offseason, my bad.

    You also forgot to add Ubaduba to the list. So in summation, we have 3 FBs and 5 TEs, that's 8 dudes for 3 spots (MAX, usually 2 spots in most formations - yes that's 4 X the necessary dudes if my math is correct)...

    ...yet no real FS or blue-chip interior o linemen... was my point Joe.

    And I'm only high on Will T because WE ALREADY HAD HIM AND NEVER USED HIM!! We can debate whether Ungabunga was a great value or not, or the probability that a supdraft player will do anything for us based on NFL history... the bottom line is that we had a stud at FB that scored on his first NFL play, but we picked up his exact twin why?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Unga is competing for as a RB spot I thought? I could be wrong. Anyhoo..Unga is much more athletic than Will, not to take anything away from Will since his specialty is blocking, and a damn good one based on his college career.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    No sure where he'd play in our system Joe. My guess would be H-back or short yardage in the red zone... but again, Will did the same and was a much better blocker against big D1 powerhouses (as opposed to SDSU and airforce). Did you see the 2-3 catches out of the backfield that will made...

    Anyway, I'm getting caught up arguing about something I'm not arguing about. My basic argument is that we already have a guy very similar to Ungabunga and we didn't use him at all last year. Why get another one?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Willie T is true FB. UngaBunga is a Ron Daynesque short yardage back. I could see them lining up together in the Red Zone as a kind of Samoan sandwich in the offset I. Both can catch and run.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    The Samoan Sandwich! Nice!!

    Sounds like a fucking WWE tag team name.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Or two fat guys and an Asian chick ...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Like breasts, one is good, two is better. We just cut Eddie Williams and Minor/Wolfe. I don't see why we need Wolfe. A midget is a midget whatever way you color it. Samoan good, munchkin bad.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Lets face it, Bell and Wolfe are expendable and it's all about value. The other teams that could have drafted Unga before the Bears did where Detroit, Tampa, Seattle, St. Louis, Buffalo, Cleveland, Jacksonville, Miami, Oakland, Kansas City, and the Redskins all passed up on this guy. If this guy brings a 2nd to 4th round value which is what has been reported then why all the hate? I wonder why a team like the Redskins who could definitely use the help in the backfield stayed at home on Unga. Heck I'm also wondering why Al Davis didn't trade up in the supplemental draft for him. That last part was supposed to be tongue in cheek. Hope Algore doesn't hear that.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Not to get on you about your math but ... Most teams carry at least 4 TE's/FB's. It's not that unusual for a team to carry 5. Depends on ST's, the athletcism and who wants the roster spot the most. I get your points but we talking about the tail end of the roster.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Told you I'm not that good at the maths canada.

    And yeah, I get it...just for us we have other needs that I think should and should have come before adding yet another body where we're already strong and deep.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    An Olsen/Davis dual TE formation has got to cause problems for opposing D. Both can get into the corner of the endzone and jump ball, you have to assign either very athletic OLBs or safeties with serious vertical, and that leaves the wideout with a one on one matchup. If you make that WR ShabbaDabba, then it's all the all jump ball formation.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    And I think that's what Martz bring to the table, he will exploit the match-ups. Unlike that boob Ron Turner

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Gotta agree. I used to give RT the benefit of the doubt until we got Cutler. It took him 12 games to realize Cutler likes to roll out and he likes to pass to Aroma. Everyone on this board knew that in preseason. What a crappy OC.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Oh god, I forgot that. Turner didn't have ANY roll-out plays designed for Cutler. I remember the hate now ...

  • In reply to Joseph:

    "16. Will Julius Peppers elevate the Bears defense more than Jay Cutler did for the offense last year?

    For the second offseason in a row, the Bears went out and landed a franchise-type player whose acquisition created headlines and jacked up Chicago's playoff hopes, not to mention its payroll. But Bears fans have reason to be warier this time around about the difference-maker factor because Chicago with Cutler in 2009 actually fared two games worse (7-9) than it did without him in 2008 (9-7). You can look it up.

    Could Peppers use his fresh start in the Windy City to flash the kind of dominating, disruptive play he showed at times during his uneven eight-year career in Carolina? Absolutely. On paper, the Bears' defense is much improved with Peppers at one end, and his mere presence could have a welcome cumulative effect on the rest of Rod Marinelli's defensive line and pass rush. But didn't we say the same thing last year at this time about Albert Haynesworth making the rest of the Redskins' D-line that much better? And like Haynesworth, isn't Peppers a supremely talented player who has been accused of not always bringing the same level of motivation to his work each and every game? I rest my case."

    More juicy nuggets from the all-knowing Don Banks at SI. What a jackass! He has never posted anything positive about the Bears as far as I know. Why doesn't he just say Cutler's a loser and Peppers' is a loafer? I swear he pisses me off more than any other national sports writer.

    Fuck that guy

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    A couple of tid bits from RotoWorld:

    Bears OL coach Mike Tice confirmed that Johan Asiata is the favorite to open the year as Chicago's starting left guard.

    Asiata's primary competition is Josh Beekman, but the Bears have always preferred him in a swing-interior backup role. Listed at 6-foot-4, 300, Asiata was a proficient pass protector at UNLV, playing mostly right tackle. At left guard in Chicago, his primary responsibility will be keeping Jay Cutler upright.

    And a side note on Fanaca:

    Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. observes that new Cardinals LG Alan Faneca "is more or less washed up."

    "He is a declining player that cannot protect very well," Williamson said in an ESPN chat. Though Faneca's release from the Jets was blasted in some circles, the consensus among those who broke down his 2009 play was that the end is nearing for the 33-year-old. The good news for Arizona is that Faneca can still run block, and the Cards will be running more this year.

    They look like geniuses if they can hit on a guy changing positions. Otherwise, they have a built in excuse why the guy didn't pan out.

    Did you see Renshaw getting kicked out of the TDF? I didn't have a huge problem with the headbutting (even though it was way late), it was running Farrah up against the barriers that was beyond bad. I don't know if you remember a sprinter named Abdujaporov? He was good but ran a few guys into barriers. Really dangerous. At 70 kph there's no room for that crap.

    Nice FQ I like it.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    He refers to Shaeffer as a backup, so he's basically saying Omelette's the RT without actually using his name. This is confusing because he mentioned that Kreutz and Shaeffer graded out the highest linemen last season. With Omelette's nightmare play can anyone therefore explain how he gets to be starting RT over a guy who played better than everyone else apart from Kreutz? Garza should be a backup, he's not getting any faster or better at this stage of his career - blood the future linemen ASAP. IF someone goes down you want a guy to come in and pick it up straight away, not have them starting to learn theuir trade in the final weeks/playoffs.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I think the thing with Asiata last year was that he just hasn't played football for that long. He's supposed to be really smart and has all the tools, he just needed to get up to speed with life in the NFL. I'd rather throw him out there in the deep end rather than pay another old war veteran. We really screwed with Chris Williams last year, letting Old Man Pace play LT. We should have pulled the plug a lot sooner on Omelette last season - what had we got to lose throwing in Louis or Asiata for a look-see ? We had the makings of a good O-line last year but it was left on the bench, you don't learn much sitting on the bench. Signing Pace and persisting with Omelette set us back.

    Gotta agree. I didn't buy the other T-shirt because I didn't like the design. Nothing personal. Also, it's not like I'm the last word on design and fashion. I just thought the shirt looked like a callout to a bear for some fellatio. Since the little Mt town where we own a home has black and grizzly bears sightings (usually with cubs), I'd rather not taunt the juicy jaws of fate.

    The two funniest T-shirts I've seen in a while were, "I'm not a gynecolygist but sure I'll have a look" and "I may not go down in history but I might go down on your sister". Now that's what I'm talking about!! Crude, vulgar and in questionable taste. Hard to resist.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    I would be very surprised if the Bears didn't carry 5 TE's on the roster throughout the season. Everyone knows Desmond is at the end of his career and quite frankly I think the Bears paid him his roster bonus because even though nobody wanted to give up value for a 33 yr player, the Bears knew the guy is rock solid and will need his services in Martz's system.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    "a callout to a bear for some fellatio"

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    It did kinda look like "I've got a Bear in my pants. Grrr."

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    From Rotoworld.com:

    The Bears thought about releasing TE Desmond Clark before paying him his $475,000 roster bonus in early March, according to beat writer Brad Biggs.
    The Bears unsuccessfully shopped Clark before surprisingly paying him the bonus. At age 33 and with Brandon Manumaleuna essentially signed to replace him, Clark may not make it through training camp. The 33-year-old is likely nearing the end of the line.

    Irish.. I did some hw lol and I have some numbers for you,

    Aaron Rodgers
    Experience- 6 years
    Completions- 726
    Attempts- 1,136
    Yards- 8,801
    Touchdowns- 59
    Interceptions- 21
    Sacked- 93
    Passer Rating- 97.2

    Jay Cutler
    Experience- 5
    Completions- 1,098
    Attempts- 1,775
    Yards- 12,690
    Touchdowns- 81
    Interceptions- 63
    Sacked- 86
    Passer Rating- 83.8

    Side note.. Last year Aaron Rodgers got sacked 50 times.
    Last year Jay Cutler got sacked only 35 times.

    Bears-Packers games of 09

    Rodgers only had 180 passing yards in both games.
    Cutler only had 277 yards the first game and the next 209 yards.

    Now that the numbers are there. You decide.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    The number of times that Rodgers was sacked..made me happy about Julius Peppers. Rodgers likes to hold on to the ball right? Well, good luck to him because we got there before and now.. Lord have mercy..is it here yet?

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Cutty all day. Rodgers (and i called him being a damn good QB coming out of Cal) seems to be hitting his ceiling. Cutty? not even close.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    hmmm.....who won those games 85? It all seems so vague to me now, I just can't seem to recall.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Sadly.. Not us.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    I know this year is different though.. Packers can't block well and I don't care how long Aaron Rodgers holds on to the ball. We lost the first game because of receivers out of position and defense giving up when it mattered the most.

    That better fucking change this year or I will drive from Tn and personally give Lovie, Jerry, and Ted their fired slip and tell them to get the hell out.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    I'm not big on numbers Artoo - they had different teams around them. Rodgers holds onto the ball too long, Cutler tends to get rid of it. I guess I'd rather take the sack than the INT. How long will Rodgers last though ? His line hasn't gotten any better, that's why I think we can take them this year. The only place the Packers are definitely better than us is in the secondary, especially if you include TEs as being receivers. They have a bad OL, no depth at running back and are as inexperienced at QB depth as we are. I'll take our defensive front seven over theirs ... how can people get so high on a team with no OL ? That's where it all starts and ends. I just hope it's Tice picking that line and Lovie leaves him alone.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Funny thing about numbers.. they offer you bragging rights, information, and some help.

    I bet you like the sound of 19-0. Right?

    I bet you like 4,510 yards a 39 touchdowns. Right?

    Numbers don't lie. We should be able to sack Rodgers with ease this year.

    Cutler should throw about the same amount of Int's but he should have a lot of yards a touchdowns at the rate he is going.

    The O-line is a concern but has Mike Tice ever picked a bad O-line?

  • In reply to Joseph:

    And not all flowers and roses though. Knox needs to get stronger and run his routes properly. I'd rather see Shabba/Bennett start than Hester/Knox running into each other like headless Ewoks, with Cutler hitting linebackers squarely in the numbers because they weren't where they were supposed to be. That's the only way I see teams beating us this year, by us beating ourselves.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    That's the shit I'm talking about GPL. And why not swap Angulo for Olsen, at 3" taller ? If we play jump ball city, Cutler has the accuracy to put it where only the receiver can get it. Hopefully Martz is as good as they say he is, I'd love to see this stuff happen, and not just on Madden 2011.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Angulo is 6'8 !! Damn. I can see Dez getting cut. Purely because of age. Everyone else has upside except Olsen. He's young, but soft, and you can't teach hard.

    Speaking of hard, that's what I'd be in my pants if we had Angulo/Davis/Shabba and one of the smurfs on the field for most of the offensive snaps. Uncoverable Bear chaos. Defenses crapping their pants trying to cover our TEs and WRs, then Cutler fakes the hand-off to Taylor, and sprints wide on a naked bootleg. Jump balls to the TEs all day long. Swap Manu in and out for Angulo to keep them honest. How do you stop that ?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I love Tofu. He can run, block and catch. Thing is he'll sit on the bench most of the year after running amok in pre-season. Seeing as how we haven't got the greatest receivers in the world, I hope we see lots of 2-back, double TE (Manu/Davis) sets. We could kill those 3-4 fronts with that look. You could do a lot with Tofu/Taylor behind a big line without ever going downfield. Countrrs, traps, power dives, screens. As soon as they stack the box to deal with it ... it's Shabb-dabba - DO!!

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Might be right Johnny - play number one against Detroit is a sideline bomb to Johnny Knox. Touchdown. Or interception. Whatever. Start as you mean to go on.

    My $0.02 on Juaquin Iglesias - the guy never makes a meaningful start for the Chicago Bears, and falls through the cracks of the NFL into the sewers. When did Jerry Angelo ever draft a good receiver / name your position ?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    And I have a feeling that in 2011 people will be sayin 'Major Who ?' - he was the like the seventh rated safety in the draft and didn't have too many people in his corner. Why are fans excited about a reach pick that has Chris Harris ahead of him on the depth chart for FS ?

    I'm still scratching my head at the games we got MURDERED in:

    @ Bengals L 45-10

    Arizona L 41-21

    @ Vikings L 36-10

    @ Ravens L 31-7

    Outscored 153 to 48

    and we lost 4 in a row weeks 9-12

    If the Bears want to get to the Superbowl, they must string along 6 and 7 game win streaks at a minimum. Last year, they had a putrid 3 game win streak. This team needs to adapt a consistent game plan and stick with it. see the Colts or Patriots for reference.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'm not saying we'll run amok MB - I think injuries will make sure that doesn't happen ... I just have a feeling we turn the tables on GB and Minny, and that Detroit will be the ones giving us problems, and everyone else. All those receivers we have to face.

    I don't think GB can run the ball against us this season. Just can't see it with our front seven. With our pass rush and the length of time Rodgers holds onto the ball, I see them shitting the bed. The games I saw GB in last year showed me their O-line sucks, but with their receivers and TE, Rodgers can carve you up if you give him time. And there lies the key - if we get in his face the way we did with our less than impressive line in game one last year, there's not much they can do. We have their offense's number, it's their Defense I'm worried about. Cutler seems to pee his pants against the 3-4, hopefully Martz has a few answers for that.

    I'm loathe to say Minny won't be able to run it, it is AP after all, but their line ain't all that at run blocking. And Chester's not there. Favre likes to put that rock up there for grabs when you get in his face.

    I think the division will be a really closely fought thing, perhaps closer than it's ever been. All those Detroit picks have to kick in sometime, and who's going to block Mr. Suh?

My point..if those cheeseheads can have a 6-10 season one year and the next year go to the playoffs..Well, I am pretty sure the Bears can go 7-9 and then the next go to the superbowl.. Now drink some of that Kool-aid.

    '85, the pack is a good squad man. They have quietly been building a strong team with depth (admittedly I don't know much about them, but I do know McCarthy is a good coach).

    They have built a good squad but I don't think it was always there.

    You were right about us though.. this is it. You might get your wish at the end of season my friend.

    Can we keep our other coaches and just get rid of Lovie.. Babich, and Jerry and Ted?

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    GB have a better squad than us ? Let's stop believing media hype for a second ....

    * Are their Linebackers that much better ?

    * Their O-line is better than ours, really?

    * Their running backs are better than ours? Who's the legendary Ryan Grant's #2 again ? #3 ?

    Jermichael Finley, yeah, sweet. Their tight ends are better than ours, sincerely? What happens if he turns his ankle and Marcus Harrison falls on it?

    Their defensive line is better than ours?

    Their ST is better than ours, for real ?

    You could argue they've got better receivers and a better secondary than us. The receivers made Rodgers look better than he is - he's not in a different class to Cutler. and are they really that better coached than us ? We were one Nate Vasher stumble and a safety brain freeze away from beating them with a Pisa/Urlacher-less team in game one. They couldn't do shit to us in game one. Was it 140 yards in offense before the last second bomb? They were the most penalised team in the NFl at one point, Rodgers was the most sacked - sorry, but I'm not drinking GB's kool aid ... I say we sweep those pussies along with the Queens this year if we stay healthy.

    The vikings secondary sucks, and I'd like to see AP put up those fancy numbers everyone thinks he's going to put up behind that line (especially without the help of Chester Taylor who's playing somewhere else now I think). We beat them fair and square last season with the 'old bears' and Hattie Hillenemyer as the Mike.

    Can you say Suuuuuuuuuhhhh - WEEP !

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I like the way you think! I'm not sure I agree with you but I like it. Right now Rodgers and their WR's/TE's are better than ours. Cutler has the potential to be better but ... Their WR's are way better. Finley is way better than any TE we have. Their CB's and Safeties are better than ours. Not sure about OL's, I'd guess about even. DL, I'll take ours with Peppers. LB's, I'll take ours but theirs are damn good. ST's, I'll take ours hands down. Coaching, uh-oh. I say we split with them and the BiQueens, sweep the Lions. Hope you're right!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    I'm not saying there better but they have building a good team while we have lost pieces to a great team or put together old pieces that didn't work.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    We don't know much, true. What I know is we signed three free agents that are men. That means three more men in our starting lineup to replace Alex Brown, Greg Olsen and the dude we got from Detroit that stayed in sickbay. Peppers was akin to trading a Mack truck for a Bulldozer. Manu when compared to Olsen's blocking skills would be like replacing Gorgeous George with Andre the Giant, and Chester Taylor joining Matty in the backfield added some serious horse power that we've been missing since the Matt Suey, Walter Payton days. Say what you will but we are better in three categories and the season hasn't started yet. My money is on the Bears winning the division.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    NFC East looks to be very tight too. Those Skins might surprise people.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Scouts Inc. has a good description of the reciever set except pretend Hester isn't a reciever. Shaba and Knox can be the starters with Olsen/Manu and Forte/Taylor picking up the other three skills spots in various iterations and Bennett coming in for the three reciever sets. Hester can tandem with Knox for the occasional "smoke the tired secondary" play, but instead can shift back to being one of the most dynamic return men ever (not in the league now... ever). That sounds exciting to me.

    As for Igglesias, if the man can play, give him his shots and maybe he'll work his way into certain packages as well. Lord knows, if he's a better route runner than Knox is, there is room for him to get some starts.

    But the offense will live and die this year with our line. I still would love to see a solid guard prospect appear, but I think we'll have to take care of that early in the draft next year.

    The defense will live and die with the secondary. Peppers might create chaos, but it still falls to our shaky CBs to prevent the easy dump off. If Lach is healthy, we still need the strong safety to come up and pack the box against the big runs.

    FQB - If we're high enough in the draft, I like the CB idea. If we're coming off the playoffs... we're going to need to save our #1 for an elite guard or possibly even a center. But Round 2 is a great spot to go corner as well.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    We have our guards, I feel it in my bones, but we have to start them. I nearly got hard reading Lance Louis' scouting reports. We get him pulling wide and flattening people downfield with Manu beside him ? Damn. Asiata is a physical specimen who's smart, and apparently a right mauler. No way we should have Beekman playing guard, and Garza hasn't got the quick feet to pull wide. Install the youth movement sooner rather than later.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    How do Bronco fans have any idea what talent is? They got rid of Cutler, Marshall, and then they draft Time Webow. I swear, you ask him how he knows talent when he let his team get rid of his and pick one that isn't ready for the NFL..yet.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    If we stay injury free, no doubt Trac, no doubt. I think Psalms 91 Harris is the key to that D playing well this year. I know Urlacher will look outstanding once more - we played the whole of last year without a Mike ! If we can bench Beekman and Garza as guards and keep omelette on the bench too, the running game could explode. That's when the passing game would get scary, if we just had a damn receiver to put opposite Shabba. I just don't get the love for the Ewok nation on our roster. Put big manly receivers in there who make big manly jumps, catch the ball and then run over people, knocking them down like skittles. Where is the advantage of small guys who can't stretch the field?

    But if we can finally run the ball ... we'll just kill people on play-action and Cutler rolling out. God, I can't wait ...

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    It worked for Az-Hakim, Isaac Bruce, and Torry Holt Irish. I was a big advocate of Shabba early last year when he was riding pine because he was the only big bodied reciever. Let's see what Martz can do with these oompa-loopas with his scheme; its worked before. For some reason, I think our recievers will be a strong suit for us this year.

    I don't see any middle ground for the Bears this year. I feel this year will be an extreme year either way. We'll either be 4-12 or 12-4. Lovie and crew will fail drastically or Martz's system works like a well-oiled machine and the D steps up.

    Hope you're all well. Looking forward to reporting back from training camp in a couple weeks and getting back into football mentality now that NBA monopoly FA shit show is over. Bear down.

  • I like the Unga pick. From what I've been reading he was projected to be a 2nd-4th round pick. For a 7th rounder, that seems like a deal. Also, I'm guessing he would be fun to watch on ST's. Definitely a load going down to knock somebody on their ass. I really don't care who makes the roster as long as they improve the talent level. BTW, the above comment (Good One!!) was for Doc. I'm not quite that insecure that I need to give positive reviews to my own posts.

  • I like the pick for that same reason Canada. An early to mid round talent for a 7th round irrelevant pick. We can use him as trade bait for a team brutalized by injuries or we can get rid of Wolfe and Bell. I'm sorry, Kalil Bell sucks and only looked good becuase Forte's knee was fizzucked last year and his hammy was bad. Unga can replace both of those dudes.

    Johnny and Canada you make some decent points, although the part of the article I didn't include with the quote about why he got the shaft was the next sentence that stated he:

    2. He's seen as a guy with questionable work ethic and a lack of football focus. Like a peppers who has plenty of inherent talent, but that just isn't a team guy who loves to work hard and kick ass 100% of the time.

    Tried to post this yesterday but the site was fucked. I didn't want to have the curse of the double post on my head. He was BMOC at BYU. I'm guessing the thought of making the roster for $320K would be pretty good incentive to play ST's. Also, you never know how a person's work ethic is going to play out. Alex Brown was supposed to have a lot of baggage and lasted to the 4th round. I'm not sure I ever saw him take a play off. I never heard much about Marcus Harrison's work ethic and he showed up last year way overweight and out of shape. Who knows? It was a 7th rounder. Not much risk.

    Michael Lombardi describes the Bears as "Green-Chip" which for him means "middle of the pack." See the full rankings here: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d819234a7/article/nfc-road-might-once-again-run-through-new-orleans

    He completely fails to mention the O-line, but here are his thoughts...

    Chicago Bears: Mention the Bears to anyone and the first reaction you might get is that they need a wideout, or that quarterback Jay Cutler turns the ball over too much. Never does anyone mention that their defense is bad, their red-zone defense is really bad, and they can't tackle well (they ranked 25th last year in yards after the catch allowed). For coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jerry Angelo to keep their jobs in Chicago, they must get their defense to play better in every area -- coaching, players and scheme. The Bears had some embarrassing game tape last year on both sides of the ball, resulting in the offensive coaches losing their jobs -- but the defensive staff remained. My belief is offensive coordinator Mike Martz will improve their offense, but will the Bears be improved on defense, where the problems last year were more than just players? Until they get this fixed, I am not sold.
