What's Your Ideal Lions Game Outcome?

So here's the schedule.  Tomorrow we'll do the season opener thread.  Friday will be my first Bears game pick column of the season and rumor has it I'll be taking the Chicago Bears (Why DO I like the Chicago Bears this week?  Tune it and find out!)  Saturday comes the launch of DaBlog Saturday Show - a weekly picks phone/radio show that will have a cool fan component with an interesting, year-end giveaway prize.  And I'm pleased to announce that the new t-shirts are in development and will hopefully be available before the Week Two kickoff in Dallas.

____________________________________________________________
But here's my question for Bears fans in the lead-up to our first game of the season.  And I want serious answers.  What result - and be specific as possible - would please you on Sunday at Soldier Field?  
Here's my answer: a win.  I'd love to see Jay Cutler not throw a pick or spend any time on his back and for the defense to suffocate the Lions on third down.  But more than anything else, I'd like to see the Bears leave the field on Sunday having scored more points than the Lions.  It's Week One and not starting 0-1, specifically against the Lions, is the priority.

    Woooo hooo!!

    What I want from the Bears:
    1) The offensive line to not scare me every play
    2) The defensive backfield to not scare me on every play
    3) No serious injuries
    4) Just win, baby!

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Seriously? Hmmm. I hate to say it but I would like to just be able to sit down and watch the game without my temper flaring because the '09 Bears showed up again. That to me would be the worst possible outcome, win or lose. I'm really tired of seeing the same crummy product out on the field year in and year out. The Best possible outcome would be able to witness first hand, a "new" team with offensive and defensive schemes that work. Quite honestly a 10-6 finish with a weak playoff performance will net the same result we've had for the last 25 years. No Lombardi trophy in Halas Hall. No, a last second win after 59 minutes of shitty football and execution will only confirm what I've been long suspecting this upcoming season may produce. I need to see a solid win that will show me we have solid team with potential. The Lions suck and will suck for most of the year, I don't want to a team that nearly sucks as bad as the Lions for 16 games.

    Out.

    to watch a team

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    What I want to see is total domination in all 3 phases.

    It would make me happy if our OL looks pretty good, the running game gets around 125-150 yds, the passing game gets 250-300 yds and we score at least 3-4 TD's. On D I would be happy if the DL holds them under 100 yds on the ground and under 250 in the air with a couple of turnovers. On ST's I want to see us score one and keep them under wraps. I expect good kicking and punting. Hopefully no injuries and Lovie comes to his senses and puts the Rook in at FS (Chris Harris blows big baby chunks).

    I would settle for a fucking win no matter how we get it!!!!!!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    What you have just described Canada is a Playoff caliber team. Sometimes it takes several weeks for all of those things to come together and I'm willing to wait should that be the direction this team goes. I just won't sit by and ra ra if the 09 Bears show up again.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Agree. That's why the post was 3 levels. Would love to see, would be happy to see and what I would settle for.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    I just read that Da Bears drafted only one lineman in the first five rounds between 2003-07. IMO this is the 2nd most important position group after the QB position that it is pretty universally acknowledged is best to build through the draft. Lovie may be playing checkers but I can't even think of an appropriate comparison to what JA is doing. But he would fit in great here.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRBkgshj8Cw&p=FDADD852049C8903&playnext=1&index=31

    This represents how JA drafts and often trades for us. The one on the right would be the Patriots or Steelers or another non-idiot GM.

    5-11, 11-5, I truly have no idea what to expect out of this team. Yes we improved in some individual areas. Will it result in an improved record? If the O-line can't get it done and the D can't get off the field on 3rd downs, I don't see how our record improves. Ok no more whining for me. I'll let the results of the real games shape my opinion from here on out. Come on Bears. Crush the Lions.

    Bear Down!!!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    An injury free win will make me happy. No one on the O-line or Secondary having an awful game will renew my hope.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    I think trac said it pretty well. We seem to be in the same camp.

    Just no more shit, peewee league football from one of the greatest football franchises in history. We need the W, but getting it by luck or circumstance just won't do any more. I just want to see us play fundamental bears football.

    On O... Block your man for the whole play in order to allow us to throw, catch, and run the football. Be smart with the football

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    God I hate Don Banks. And although he's 100% right about everything he said, and 5-11 is entirely possible if things don't come together in a big way, quickly... I still fucking hate that hack: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/don_banks/09/07/predictions/1.html

    Oh, yeah... and he's pretty high on us overall too: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/don_banks/09/08/week.1.3/index.html

    Asshat.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Don't kill the messenger. He IS correct IF things "don't come together qucikly".

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Major Wright cleared today to practice without restrictions.

    And Two key members of the Lions defense sat out practice because of injuries that have hampered them for a good part of the summer. Linebacker DeAndre Levy and safety Louis Delmas both are dealing with strained groin muscles, and neither appears to be a sure thing for Sunday's game at the Chicago Bears.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Ahh. I LOVE how you posed the question today, Blogather.

    Your IDEAL outcome, men. Not PREDICTED outcome.
    Hell of a difference.
    A 'wish list", as opposed to a "prediction".

    That means I can pretend I'm an OPTIMIST for a few minutes!

    OK, so here's my "Delerious Dozen":

    1) Jay Cutler's uniform does not require post-game laundering.

    2) No Bears require the dreaded "cart" ride off the field or anything approaching same.

    3) Rather than being named "NFL Defensive Rookie of the Week", Ndamakong Suh is absolutely TAKEN TO SCHOOL on the difference between PRE-season and the REAL NFL and is NOT AT ALL HAPPY with what he learns.

    4) Ditto for Jahvid Best.

    5) 30+ points for us.

    6) Single digits for Los Leones

    7) No INTs for Jay.

    8) Our Special teams actually look SPECIAL once again.

    9) The defensive line DOMINATES and raises the the defensive backfield from "Weak" to "Adequate".

    10) Lions fans go home dazed and confused saying "...but we looked SO GOOD in preseason and they looked so BAD!"

    11) Crow dinners on SPORTCENTER for all the so-called "Experts".

    12) OBVIOUS signs that Mike Martz has told Lovie "Just stand there, look stoic and stay the hell out of my way, Doofus."

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Love #12 Al.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    to crush your enemies, to see them fall at your feet -- to take their horses and goods and hear the lamentation of their women. That is best.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    By the way, the experts at the Daily News have the Bears going 3-13 because they lost Nathan Vasher, their best corner last season.

    ...they actually wrote that.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    That means the Chargers are also screwed. Bummer for them.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    I want to see some points. Lots of points. I think a good defensive performance will be a side effect of that. Shut all the national yucks up about the Cutler/Martz marriage...at least temporarily. We need a win week 1. BEAR DOWN.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    Happiness, Level 1: Seeing players (and coaches) who look like they give a shit.

    Happiness, Level 2: Seeing Cutty look like an asset, and not a liability.

    Happiness, Level 3: Seeing flashes of a once-dominant defense returning to form, making the other team's offense look inept for once.

    Happiness, Level 4: Seeing the Bears physically dominate and beat up the Lions in every phase.

    Happiness, Bonus Level: Seeing 23 take a punt to the house for the first time in three years.

  • In reply to czheng:

    Yup, seeing 23 return a PR for a TD would be the money shot.

    I want to see Olin Kruetz bitch smack Suh if he gets out of line.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Suh v. Kreutz shouold be entertaining. Or possibly horrifying. Not sure.

    Ginny on her walker toddles into Mealymouth Mike's office. She has a picture wrapped up in her hand, all nicely framed and shit.

    She takes down Mike's Ivy League diploma from the wall. Hangs this on the nail. Toddles out of his office.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcnorth/post/_/id/15898/have-at-it-clash-of-ineptitude

    Let me take another stab at answering the question Jeffie posed. If our team ranks somewhere in the top half of the league in both offensive and defensive statistics I will be satisfied with our first weeks performance even though it would be against the Lions. On the other hand, if we end up in the bottom third in the League stat columns, I will be extremely disappointed specially because it was against the Lions.

  • In reply to czheng:

    Ho-ly-sheite muslim... did you see our O's preseason stats?!?!? We were second to last in almost everything! My goodness gracious.

    The great Mr. Halas is fucking spinning in his grave jerry you fucktard. You're going to pay for everything you've wrought unto this once great team. I hope the ghost's ghost haunts you till the day you die motherfucker. (too strong?)

    Very cheeky article MB. None of these guys are giving us any love at all. Hmmm.

  • In reply to czheng:

    Final score: Bears 31-Lions 17

    Cutler: 22/35, 245 yds, 2 TDs
    Forte: 105 yds, TD
    Taylor: 45 yds, TD
    Defense: 210 yds pass, 70 yds rush, 2 TD, 2 turnovers

    That would be a good springboard.

  • In reply to TheGhostofHalas:

    Unless the Lions pass for 400 yds and rush for 200.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    You see, everything is relative.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Every time I get apprehensive thinking of our O-line on every snap and our Secondary on 3rd and long, I remember that Ron Turner is not our Offensive Coordinator anymore. Go ahead, say it slow and savor every word.

    Ron...Turner...is...NOT...our...Offensive...Coordinator.

    That has to be worth something. It will be an exciting year and each game I believe we will at least go down swinging. That alone is improvement.

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    No shit, my man. I will chant the mantra!

    Ron Turner is NOT our offensive coordinator.
    Ron Turner is NOT our offensive coordinator.
    Ron Turner is NOT our offensive coordinator.
    Ron Turner is NOT our offensive coordinator.
    Ron Turner is NOT our offensive coordinator.
    ...

  • In reply to czheng:

    As a current resident of Omaha, super saturated with Husker bullshit - my first wish will be that our Bad News Bears invoking offensive line can make Suh look like a bust.

    As a believer in listening to what my quarter back has to say - my second wish is that DA, starting or not starting, catches for over 150 yards and 3 tiddies.

    As a non-believer in Manumaleuna - my third wish is for Forte and Taylor to put up 200 combined yards, and Cutler to remain "calm, collected... German" thanks to that rich bastard.

    As a huge fan of Pisa - wish #4: I want him to personally pass off the injury bug to at least three (3) Lions players.

    As a die hard Bear fan who will be attending my first regular season game on opening (muffukkin') night on my (muffukkin') berfday - wish #5: Please jah/jehova/baby jebus/(insert preferred deity here), I beg of you... Do NOT make me swan dive off the grandstands. Which means:

    1) 3rd and long must be something another team AVOIDS - not prefers.
    2) Jay stays on his feet... Not his back.
    3) No Ron Turner throwbacks - Wolfe up the middle, shitty Hester screen passes, etc...
    4) Please do not make some bullshit practice squad deserver look like a (muffukkin') HOF'er

    As well, my buddy from AZ is coming along for the trip. He's a damn Lions fan. Wish #5 is he buys a Cutler jersey and comes over to the navy-side.

    Bears, I beg of you, don't (muffukkin') fuck this up for me.

    Hey, opening day is my birthday as well! And the only b-day present I'm hoping for is a W and some signs of progress on offense and defense. If they stop taking steps backwards (which seems an apt description of 2009 and the preseason as well) I will be satisfied even.

    I did google S.K. I think you're shooting a little low but I agree with Ron white. Once you've seen one woman nekkid, you pretty much want to see all of them nekkid. He's the only one of those redneck comedians that is funny. He missed the roast of Larry the Cable Guy (really not funny) because he got arrested for less than a gram of weed in Atlanta. He asked the audience, "Do you know what having less than a gram of weed means? It means you're out. I got arrested in Atlanta for being out of pot!"

    This team has enough bullets firing at them, all I am saying is what are they saying we don't already know?

    I do understand that these two individuals do not need to be mentioned in the same breath but I just do not like Mushin Muhammad. Gale, I can relate to but Mushin? Come on, he should just shut up.

    Seriously, what more can fire up your team?

    Your coach is leaving if you don't get to the playoffs, Your hall of fame players from your own team think you are shit, your own people don't think you can win 5 games this year, and not one team, even the Detroit Lions, take you serious anymore.

    This team better play like they are pissed because I don't see how they can't be.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    There is a difference between supporting your 7 yr old during a pee wee football game and expecting to see professionals wearing the Chicago Bear uniform. If fans don't hold the organization accountable then this is what we get. Perennial sloppy football. I spend good money on the NFL Sunday ticket every year which the Bears get a cut of and I will not go quietly into the night like a Detroit fan anymore. Wake up Lovie, win some football games.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:
  • In reply to MB30SD:

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/don_banks/09/08/week.1.3/index.html

    I'd like to discuss the several ways in which Don Banks is a douchebag. He ranked us fucking 29th. Behind Cleveland and Detroit. Fuck him, fuck him right in his face.

    I hope this Bears team is sick of the disrespect and goes out on to that field sunday and beats the everloving shit out of the cowardly lions. I'll be at the game, hopefully witnessing the last game of Mathew Staffords injury plauged career. I see Cutler tearing the Lions weak secondary and linebackers a 2nd, more luxerous asshole.

    is it sunday yet?

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    That article would be taped to every player's locker if I was the head coach and shit like that would be all over the place. I want you to know that your being disrespected out there. I want you to hit and tackle like there is a huge chip on your shoulder. Like you have a grudge and the only place to take it out on is the opposing players. Shit, I might even make some stuff up that I heard the Lions saying about your momma and your sister.

    Show some pride Bears. Lay it all out there. Show for 60 minutes that winning is the only thing in the world that matters to you during that time. Leave it all on the field like gladiators fighting until the last second tics off the clock.

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    Go Saints!! Let's start Favre's retirement party tonight.

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    Seriously, how can the Bear's take this much shit and not make a statement about it?

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    That shit is funny. I wouldn't have guaranteed a Bear victory before I saw that, but if there's anyone in the organisation with any nouse whatosever then that article got photocopied and is currently smeared all over Halas Hall.

    Not only has he got us pegged all wrong, Detroit and Cleveland will be a lot higher too. Don Banks. Ducheyne.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    The ideal outcome of this game is a win. More so I think they need to make sure the Lions know who they played. Back in the very lean years, the other team may have won, but damn they paid a price. It was smart money to bet against a team that played the Bears the previous week. Win or lose I want them to play proud, and play like they give a shit. Play hard every down! Play like a Chicago Bear!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Sacks and Picks....Sacks and Picks

    the defense needs to get to the QB at least 3 times, with at least 1 pick.

    The offense needs to give up less than 3 sacks and no more than 1 pick.

    Thats really my expectation for this game.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    The lions have won 2 games in two years. hahahahaha.

    Good lord. The fact that we are even debating who is going to win this game is troubling.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Hey guys, I have been following Da Bears Blog for about a year now and i love this site. In my opinion we need to put a whoopin on the lions. If the Bears thing they are a playoff calibour team, then they should run up a nice score on Detriot. So i do not wanna see the Bears just win on sunday I want them to win big!
    Bear Down Chicago Bears Bear Down!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Follwing up yesterday's attorney bashing, Canada. Are your relatives attorney's in Canada?

    I will wager that Canada, like England, SEVERELY regulates the bringing of lawsuits compared to our "I have the right to bring suit for ANYTHING I CAN POSSIBLY CONCIEVE system down here in the states.

    Heck, I know they are a necessity. My main issue with Lawyers is that the good ones don't do a better job of weeding out the bad ones who clog our courts with mindless, often ridiculous, lawsuits.
    Oh, and I hate the ads: "If there's no recovery, there's no fee!". But there's ALWAYS expenses, children.

    Same goes for Doctors who also do a piss-poor job of "weeding their garden".

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    They're attorneys in Illinois. One is in corp law and the other is an adoption lawyer. No doubt the US is more litigious than Canada but there are plenty of frivolous lawsuits up here. If both countries would make one small adjustment it would make a ton of that crap go away. Just make it loser pays all legal costs for both parties. If all these stupid ambulance-chasing people had to pay all legal fees if they lost most of those douchebags would stop the nonsense. Oh well.

    One last lawyer joke. It's pretty nasty but we are dealing with a criminal element. There's a lawyer, a priest and a rabbi on a plane filled with children. The plane is going down and parachutes are in short supply. The rabbi and the priest are content to let the children have their parachutes but not the lawyer. The rabbi goes to the lawyer and explains how the children have long lives in front of them and their lives are close to the end. The lawyer responds, "I've waited my whole life to retire and live the good life. I'm not giving it up."

    The rabbi goes back to his seat and the priest says maybe he's catholic and he can talk some sense into him. The priest goes back and tries the same line of reasoning but with more of a religious element. The lawyer responds, "No way I'm giving up this parachute." The priest says, "Think of the children." To which the lawyer responds, "Fuck those kids." The priest says, "Do you think we have time!"

    Comments are interesting, Lions fans uppity

  • In reply to gpldan:

    The NFC North blog on ESPN has all the Lions fans going wacky. They're all predicting a win for the Lions and dissing the Bears. There's one Bears fan on there trying to defend their honor but that's about it. Reading the Bears fan's posts, I doubt he would be held in high regard by the regulars here. Lots of homerific hooey without much in depth analysis. I hope we pound the Lions. If we do, I'll be sure to read the comments next Monday. If we get pounded, I'll probably avoid any fan comments except here. We are a 1 TD favorite.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    First, I want a win. Second, I don't want to see Cutler sacked more than two/three times - it's gonna happen, I just hope it doesn't happen a half a dozen times. Third, I want to see our secondary shut down what I think could be one of the big surprises of the season - the Stafford and Johnson show. If we limit their action, I'll be happy. Throw in a Peppers sack or two and I'll be really happy.

    I'm not looking for offensive, or defensive, fireworks. Just consistency that results in a solid win, so we can head into the Cowboys game confident and ready to kick some ass.

    Losing to the Lions will only further deflate an already deflated season.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    I don't need to see a dominating run game, or the second coming of Air Coryell or the 85 Bears Defense. I am not expecting greatness.

    I just want a team that is solid and puts down the Lions 34-10 or so, a handy victory with balanced play and few mistakes. Good special teams.

    What I will get? Who knows.

  • All my wishes are pretty much used up Sd, very glad you still have some.

  • I just hope the Saints put a cat 5 hurt locker on the queens tomorrow. Maybe Alex Brown can do us a favor and step on the Brett girls bad ankle by mistake.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Yes, please. I have Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush in my fantasy lineup.

  • I would like to see a convincing win.
    On offense, a balanced attack where we actually run the ball effectively. No more than one turnover, and not in the red zone! If they can't run the ball, I think Cutler will be scrambling a lot and making mistakes.
    On defense, I want to see a good pass rush, especially up the middle. I want to see guys actually tackle properly and not hug players to the ground. Hopefully they can turn that switch. And last, I don't want to see the safeties get caught out of position more than a few plays.
    Bears 27, Lions 17 sounds like a great score to me. Oh, and no big injuries opening day. It seems like it happens every year because they never have real practices.
    I heard this song on Mully and Hanley this morning and it's been in my head all day.

  • Yeah, lot of big life changes recently keeping me with no time but the season's starting and things are settling down. Hard enough most days just to keep up reading all the good stuff on here.
