  • In reply to FQD1911:

  • In reply to FQD1911:

  • In reply to mikemuadib:

    Certainly. Nice towels.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    FQ..............Interesting 37 yard return...has he even done that yac as the so-called #1 receiver?

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    lol good point

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    links?

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    why is Hester playing receiver??!?!?!?!?

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    His contract. And Lovie's and JA's pride and ego.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    That's why!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    I stand corrected. He should still be on both kick and punt returns unless he is winded.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    please give us this TD... our goaline record is not a good one....

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    soooooooo....who wants Kyle Orton? smh

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Now, do not allow the Vikings to walk down the field and get points before half time

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    The Bears have got to hire this Mike Ferrera (sp?) guy as their challenge manager. Pay him whatever it takes.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    +1

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Ever since the Giants game, my in-game emotions have been dead. There is absolutely nothing they can do do raise my blood pressure again this year.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    mine too. but it might have something to do with the xanax and/or coors. I've managed to reach a state of Lovie-like zen.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Now Doc on the other hand.....

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Ok, so which Viking does Cutler throw it too now. He could have run the goddamned thing in too. If no ones open take the slide and the 3 points.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Forte right up the middle again. I don't get it gents... why don't they see what we see?

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Scrappy Davis!!! There you go GP!

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    I think we've made more first downs today... than the first 8 games..

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    THAT IT IS BABY!!! That's what I'm fucking talking about baby!

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    great play action!!!!!!!! YESSSSSSSS

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    too easy. love the play call.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    BOOOM

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    should be at least 40-10.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    just trying to keep score.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Still want to see a couple more touchdowns, want to be sure!!!!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    WOW. SPECIAL TEAMS. LEGENDARY.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    BEAR DOWN BABY

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    holyfuckingshit! Can we please god embarrass these assholes. Harvin got bent back like a reed.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    this will be overturned...

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    agreed... but at least it looks like harvin won't be coming back this game

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    ALL AROUND GREAT PLAY BY OUR BEARS TODAY!

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    If Harvin goes down...really makes getting rid of Moss totally stupid now!!!

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    But who is complaining? Great move for the Vikes to get rid of Moss.

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    I have been tired of the turf at Soldier Field for years. Granted its the same for everyone, and our team should be used to it, but besides this most recent slip-up by Peterson, I feel the Bears fall down more than others on the grass. Why cant we change that?

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    Hurts the vikings way more than it does us ...

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    Nice challenge Brad

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    YESSSSS!!!!!!

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    why does matt forte insist on finding people to run into?

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    THAT is why I want chet to take ALL of those inside run calls. Not fucking rocket science.

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    wtf is up with all the runs... wasn't that 3rd down and long?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    gotta keep the clock running...

  • In reply to underway:

    and not score?????

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    take a chance on a cutler pick... Nope... Defense will hold the vikings from scoring twice... We dont need another point... Pin the vikes deep and let them burn the clock trying to score.

  • In reply to underway:

    sorry, can't get with that defeatist way of thinking under.

  • In reply to underway:

    can you fucking believe the Jacksonville game? 2-1 again...wow.

  • In reply to underway:

    game over. Beautiful

  • In reply to underway:

    Drank too many haiku.

    BEARS WIN!

  • In reply to underway:

    PLEASE, PLEASE, some how, some way, dont fire Childress.

  • In reply to reprisal:

    Favre can come back too.

  • In reply to reprisal:

    "31 on one carry"

    20 on one carry.........

  • In reply to reprisal:

    detroit just lost.... to buffalo.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I like Buffalo but their schedule from here on in is absolutely brutal. 1 and 15.

  • In reply to reprisal:

    great game. night yall.

  • In reply to underway:

    Now that team can win the Division.

  • In reply to underway:

    BIG ASS win.........Now THAT looked like a GOOD football team.......Held Favre to under 200 yards with 3 picks........Peterson had 51 yards - 31 on one carry, the O line was very very good, And special teams with Hester were just outstanding. This one feels real good. I was waiting for this team to show. Now let's build on this...........

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    booyah Harris!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    BEAR DOWN!!!!!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Favre has thrown almost as many INTs in this game as Cutler has thrown all season...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    YESSSSSS.... That will do it...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    that was damn nice run blocking btw. Hats off to the oline.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Ladies and Gentleman... Brett Farve's last game at Solider Field.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    I'll believe that when I see him in a commentator's box with his cock out!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    wow this game felt good.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Hahahahahaha... just after I post that, but left linemen just get blown up and put on the ground.

    btw, any of you guys know what possition Kenny Albert was when he played in the NFL?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    No matter. Great game all around from the O-line. They get the game ball.

  • In reply to underway:

    Pick-6 please!

  • In reply to underway:

    Why the fuck is the clock not running in between plays? It's not below the 2 minute warning!!! WTF

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    Thats the Maynard we know and love

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    Surprised Chilly managed to throw the flag.

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    BRIGGSY!!!!

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    THIS IS WHAT OUR FOOTBALL TEAM SHOULD LOOK LIKE. Thank you.

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    LANCE BRIGGS!!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    didnt look too good for Harvin

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    "Into the mud, scum queen!"
    Steve Martin

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Once again horseshit play calling, ok hush my mouth...duhhhh!

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    I really don't want to jinx anything, but it really looks like the O-line is starting to come together.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Fucking Maynard.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    is our secondary on crack today...WTF

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I hate the pass interference rules in the NFL.

  • In reply to reprisal:

    agreed. a 42 yard penalty? Just not right. There has to be a better way.

  • In reply to reprisal:

    yaaaaaaahooooooooooo!!!!!

  • In reply to reprisal:

    What a win.
    Izzy was a beast again. Pep played lights-out again. The smurfs, with the exception of TJ deciding not to cover Harvin on one play, looked good.
    Hell, even Pringles almost came up with a pick.
    Cutler, with the exception of one really dumb decision in the red zone, played with exceptional poise. He was extremely elusive in the pocket and juked Vikings linemen out of their cleats several times.
    And best of all, we stayed committed to the run game against an allegedly great run D. Maybe the Vikes trainers need to update their Starcaps prescription.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Totally agree MikeBrown (I heard you were on the sidelines!lol). I was screaming at the tv when Cutler threw that bonehead int. But like I said before, his turnovers almost always come from trying to do too much - he's like the qb version of AP.

    Our entire D played lights out accept for that one pass to Harvin, which seemed more like a miscommunication between Harris and TJ.

    And FINALLY, FINALLY, they move Hester to KR...as that old commercial used to sing, 'what a differenca a day makes'. Suddenly, we're begginning drives at the 40 - THEIR 40. what a coincedence, right? lol The Ghost of Hester is just as scary as Hester - it spooks the hell out of opposing coaches, and they either have to squib, like they did to Davis and we start at the 40, or they angle it and risk going out of bounds and we start at the 40, or god forbid, they actually kick it to Hester, and we start at least at the 30 or score...every scenario, we win.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    "except" and "beginning" sorry, still delirious from our victory!

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Yep, DH was ridiculous...I really thought he was going to set the record today.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    btw...TIED FOR FIRST IN THE NFC NORTH!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    Correction, Lobo.,Bears beat the Packers, ergo, Bears are in first place, period.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I beg for forgiveness...was listening to the pundits and should of listened to my blog brothers

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    Just sayin', but, Olsen Haters, SHADDAP!

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    I could've sworn we are half a game up on the Fudge since we beat them...maybe I'm wrong. Either way, we got the tie-breaker - for now...

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    I absolutely LOVE the "Bart Starr Call" on 3rd and 1 for the clincher.

    I think last time the Bears called that it was Brian Griese to Des Clark to beat the Packers.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Yep, DH was ridiculous...I really thought he was going to set the record today.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Yup, the skunk made Vikings SP teams stink. However, it looked like he hurt his shoulder a bit, but hopefully, it isn't too serious (it's a short week too). Even if he is injured, if I were the bears I wouldn't disclose it to anyone, and have him go out there on returners regardless. If Miami is smart, they'll kick it away from him anyways.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Our D is coming together. Adams and Toeina in the middle with Pep and Izzy, it's a pretty stout front 4. And man, does that make the difference. Child Support and Briggs ran free and caused problems. Briggs blitzed twice and was effective in pressure both times.

    DJ Moore is heads up baller.

    Our weak spot on D was really just Tim Jennings trying to hand off to Harris.

    Toub again brought the ST hammer and that set up a field Cutler could work with. He looked good when running.

    Farve looks like a man in trouble. He's just racking up the starts to make his record unassailable, nobody will ever touch it. That's all he's out there to do.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Ya, our front entire front 7 are MEN. Pep, Izzy, Lach, Briggs...and our secondary are opportunistic. The corners and safeties almost always seem to be in the right spot for a pick, which makes up for their smurf-ness.

    Our Oline is looking like an NFL oline for once. Not dominate, not good, just decent - and really, with our SPteams and top 3 Defense, (and apparently more poised Cutler), that's really all we need to be competitive in EVERY game.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    What game did you watch? Omiyale and Webb are human turnstiles and Kreutz had two really bad penalties. Cutler, poised? Same old Cutler - poor opponent ...

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Our Oline allowed 1 sack, allowed Forte/Taylor to rush for a modest 100 yards. Relatively speaking (Giant's flashback) I think that's decent.

    Kreutz made some idiotic penalities though, true. Cutler was pretty poised - except for that stupid int in the redzone. The other ints was Knoxs fault.

    I think ur more cynical than even I am Irish lol which opponent (that isn't "poor") do we have to beat in order for you to be a bit more optimistic? Pats, Jets, and Pack again prob...It's gonna be tough, no doubt, but I'm feeling much better than I was 2wks ago.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Don't get me wrong mang, a win is a win, and beating the vikes is always good, but if we're going to win the division we'll have to beat some good teams ...

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    sad gray penis fails
    calf roping few and far between
    Cavalarri fucked like vikings

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    the last one is 8 syllables lol

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    sadly, i couldn't fit my vision into just 7

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    the only team on the schedule that REALLY scares me is New England. Tom Brady is out of this fucking world & Bellichek may have something in store for Martz/Cutler. should be a good1 1 nonetheless

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Yeah. Was watching them give Pittsburgh a hard time and thinking the same thing. Maybe our "genius" can beat their cheater. But, like you said it's Brady that's scary.

  • In reply to mikev:

    Pats are scary but beatable. Pats of a couple years ago? yucky. Pats of 2010? yummy.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    they're looking pretty good right now Johnny.

    Doesn't help that the Steeler's WRs seem to be allergic to catching passes right now.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    the only thing scary about Brady is how much he resembles Justin Beiber and/or a woman

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Right. That and...

    "He has played in four Super Bowls, winning three of them (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX). He has also won two Super Bowl MVP awards (XXXVI and XXXVIII), has been selected to five Pro Bowls (and invited to six, although he declined the 2006 invitation), and holds the NFL record for most touchdown passes in a single regular season. Brady has the sixth-highest career passer rating of all time (93.5) among quarterbacks with at least 1,500 career passing attempts. He was named Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year in 2005. He also helped set the record for the longest consecutive win streak in NFL history with 21 straight wins over two seasons (2003

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I am aware of his many accolades. But he hasn't won a Super Bowl in six years. He peaked in the early 2000's and is on his way to has-been town. Favre will welcome him when he gets there.

    Also, he has a chip on his shoulder and a bastard child with the woman he ditched when he met Gisele.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Hmmm... I don't know if I buy into all that. Let me throw this one out for you... would you trade him for Cutler if you knew he would continue to play for another... say... 4-5 years?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    btw, his numbers in just over 3 Qs against the #1 rushing and #4 total defense in the NFL tonight are:

    26/32
    302
    2/0

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    nope. never would make that trade. He's too sissy-like to fit in with the Bears. Besides, with our O-line and receivers, I doubt his numbers would be that good.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Brady and Olsen's hair on the same team ? Nope.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Great win today. Best game I've seen all year, maybe in the last 3. O-line gets game ball today. On to a banged up Miami team.

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Is that Chuck Norris' fist?

  • In reply to Joseph:

    Dude. Seriously. The o-line? Webb and Omiyale were revolving doors. As the game wore on the Williams wall was consistently breaking through. Cutler was buying himself time all day. Gameball to a group would either be return team or linebackers.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Irish +1

    I think our line is getting better than what it has been a C from an F, but the schemes of Martzy and the wheels on JC are what is keeping us alive.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    From the Trib and Pompei:

    "He was jacked about returning kicks

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    More snaps for Scrappy! He's so motherfucking hungry!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    oh and one more tidbit:

    Former Bear Bernard Berrian was active for the game but tweaked his groin before kickoff and was in street clothes.

    hhhhhhheeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhheeeeee

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    with OUR oline and his immobility? That's suicide! I'd rather have the Pat's Oline lol ZERO sacks given up against the Steelers...Wow...that's impressive. And they weren't even close to sniffing Bieber's ass. Ok, I'll butt out now lol

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Here we go...I guess Child Support and Briggs are on your shit list too?

    Does 2007 qualify as the early 2000s?
    You know, that year when he set the passing TD record?
    Or 2009, when he passed for 5 touchdowns in one quarter?

    I hate the Patriots, but WTF are you smoking?

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    What A FUC#!@%$!#%$!%#ING DRAMA QUEEN:

    from PFT...
    After Sunday

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    I HAD to repeat this to honor that "poor me" link;:

    To Chicago came Narcissus.
    HIS game was mostly misses.
    3 picked and 1 fumbled,
    in his post-game he mumbled,
    about how disappointing it is.

    Narcissus' Philosophy:

    "An injured me is still better for the team than a healthy anybody else."

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Oh, BTW, Narcissus, if you're injured then SIT YOUR SELFISH ASS DOWN otherwise, SHADDAP, already!

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    This team is going places.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    Namely Detroit, Minnesota and Green Bay :o)

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    too bad the trade deadline has passed and the vikes can't trade Favre to Miami lol

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    I bet they'd rather have Thigpen.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Steelers embarrased at home on national TV.

    Yeah, I can go for that.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I didn't play the Steelers D in FF. I had a feeling the Pats were gaining momentum and going to roll.

    Bad news is, I played the Vikes D, figuring how many points sacks and INTs counted for.

    To the Bears credit, the Vikes D only scored 4 FF points on them.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Fresno -

    Either your a fucking genius or the luckiest man alive. I don't know which it is. Picking Mario Manningham off waivers and starting him, getting his best game of the season for 15FF. That's some shit right there.

    FQD still outscored you, though.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Let's not rehash Fresn's completely out-his-ass win. It is still painful.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    p.s. thank you Titans.

    Injured Henne, Pennington, and for good measure Jake Long. If we take Thigpen out, Ronnie Brown will be lining up behind center against our stud run d...or maybe Jamarcus Purple Drank Russell.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Oh and Fox TV, STOP billing your afternoon game as

    "America's Game of the Week".

    That's ridiculous.

    Especially when you consider THAT game isn't even shown in all markets AND on Sundays when you don't have a double-header some markets don't even GET an a Fox afternoon game.

    "America's Game of the Week" ????

    Ludicrous!

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Featuring "America's team" :o)

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Hey, one positive thing, GB play Atlanta in Atlanta. Matt Ryan and the Falcs are 18-1 at home under the boy wonder. Scratch that one down as a loss for the Pack at least ...

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    The Fudge play 3 tough games, and some easy ones.

    Tough Ones: At Falcons, At Pats, and home vs Giants

    Easy Ones (relatively): At Lions, At Vikings, home vs 9ers

    Then, there's us at Green bay, wherever the hell we fall.

    It's not totally inconceivable that the Pack will be 9-6 by the time they play us. If we beat the Fins, Lions and Queens again, and lose the rest, we'll also be 9-6, and then, it's on like Donkey Kong...

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    If we're both, say 10-5 going into that game, the Pack queer sludge that oozes in here will create a formidable stank that week.

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    I like the comment that this was Favre's "last meaningful game". How totally fitting that it comes as a loss to his long time arch rival at Soldiers Field. Now slink off into a dark corner and whimper you whiny pervert!

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    Well that has to be bullshit, he threw some lasers yesterday.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Cute - but that's asinine.
    Brady is a first ballot HOF'er, whether you like his hair or not. The guy has more rings than 20 NFL franchises.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Exactly MBP. Thank you. I was trying to be a bit more diplomatic this time around, but my thoughts exactly.

    I get trying to do the 'cute' shtick thing, but pretty silly.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I don't want to be a Brady defender, but as all the gossip rags have pointed out, Bridget Moynahan went off the pill on Brady without telling him.

    He's supporting his son from her, but if I were in his place, I would have done the same thing. Even Moynahan herself pretty much admitted she did that, although her reasons for not telling him seem to vary from interview to interview.

    I think his pretty hair is pretty stupid, but he's running with the Vidal Sassoon crowd now, so what Giselle wants, she gets. And it hasn't seemed to effect his play on the field, which a hell of a lot more than we can say of Broadway Joe after his Super Bowl win when he started banging Ann Margaret and wearing fur coats everywhere.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    And as MB pointed out, Brady pales next to Child Support, who seems to have a thing for leaving behind people pudding in known gold diggers.

    Clearly Lack hates Trojans, and not just because he played his college ball at New Mexico.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Hey now GP...we are "skin to win" here in the wild west..love going native!!!!

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I still can't get over the "he hasn't won a Super Bowl in six years" comment.
    And Ray Lewis sucks too. After all, he hasn't won a Super Bowl in almost ten years. He should retire.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    MBP..tell us how you really feel about RL.....

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    I can't put the sarcasm tag on comments due to Chicagonow comment code sucking...but I think Lewis is an obvious top-5 MLB. I think Lach is better in coverage and has better lateral speed, but Lewis is probably better against the run.
    I also think that Lewis would never have played again if Goodell had been Commissioner in 2000.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    hey would anybody else like the throwbacks with the dark pants.Now that I thought would really look BAD-ASS!

    I don't think we have ever gone all dark......Al?.... Have we?

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    The Bears HAVE worn "all navy", lobo and
    I think that look SUCKS.

    I also hate the orange tops with white Pants.

    I'd like to see the orange jeseys with the navy pants.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    O.K..... Al tell me how you really feel.......... Really the double darks look sucks? ...now the orange and navy pants that maybe cool.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB, both of those teams are a handful but the stars are aligning and it seems like the coaching staff are actually gameplanning instead of just sucking wang. We are adjusting and exploiting and i believe that we can do this. The best part is that i think the Bears are starting to believe it too.
    Miami-dead
    Thigpen-dead...wait, who the fuck is Thigpen?
    Brown-dead
    Marshall-huge #1 receiver....but dead nonetheless.
    Sparano-fat

    Handing to Pittsburgh like that in their own house is nothing short of very impressive.

    Lord - Is Heinz Ward auditioning for Dancing With The Stars tonight?
    Any more camera time and he should be given a cable channel.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Okay - Now I understand - NBC knows this game is as boring as a C-Span Congressional vote - so they have decided to show The Heinz Ward Concussion Rehab Show.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I'm calling in sick tomorrow. Maybe I'll be sick for several days.

    Lovie didn't actually mess anything up yesterday ....

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Three division games on the road is pretty scary. The Jets are pretty scary. We've managed to beat one good team and their 17 penalties helped us out somewhat. Mike Vick and DS Jackson can hurt us. The Pats are definitely scary, putting up nearly 40 on the NFL's best defense. They'll hammer us for sure.

    BC! I've been at bw3 all day taunting vikings and packers fans who wore their jerseys into a chicago bar.

    1. #1 in the division
    2. Hester producing fear boners in coaching staffs throughout the league
    3. Harvin leg swept like karate kid
    4. Defense was stifling and held AP in check
    5. Martz playcalling top notch
    6. Scrappy with a nice return after they squibbed a kick while they dragged a fear boner around on the kickoff. Bears get ball at 50yd line.

    Today is an example of how we should be using Cutler. Allow him to roll out, don't make him do 7 step drops and block *just* well enough for him that receivers have time to come open. Gotta admit that I didn't see this one coming, but Cutler looked good today. If not for that dumb pick in the end zone, he would have looked great.

    Also, I wonder if we could have won another game here or there if we'd had Hester at KR all year.

    Great win, going to enjoy this one until Thursday!

    MANY reguylars on this Blog had been PLEADING for Martz to make use of Cutler's mobility with rollouts and bootlegs for WEEKS before it finally started to happen.

    Hester had field position changing punt and K.O. returns PLUS that nice catch and run for a TD on a crossing pattern.

    Great win folks! Offense converted 3rd downs, ran successfully when they needed to, showed excellent playcalling... Defense shut down 3rd downs, came up big with TOs, stuffed AP hard... Special teams were simply electric!

    Hester, Cutler, Peppers, Forte, Idonije, Moore, CHarris, Briggs, Urlacher, Melton, Knox, Olsen, DA, the OL, KDavis, even RDavis all showed up with big plays. Hester and RDavis on both ST and offense even!

  • In reply to 750mL:

    Definitely not a perfect game (redzone pick, broken coverage for TD, etc...), but this was a good showing and hopefully a sign of what direction this team is going.

    Martz really looks like he made good use of the bye. We'll see how things continue -- we'll see if he can keep it up as opponents start adjusting again.

  • In reply to 750mL:

    How the fuck did we lose to the Redskins and the Seahawks? We really should be 8-1. Although we're not really a 8-1 team so I guess maybe those two losses could help us in the long run?

    I chalk up BOTH of those games to the incompetance of Mr. Smith.

  • In reply to BigT:

    No, 8-1 please. Anyone who has to go through Atlanta at home will get pantsed. If it's us I predict Chris Harris falling over a turd in the last seconds and Roddy White running 70 yards for the score.

  • In reply to 750mL:

    The O-line did a terrific job of getting the Vikings pass rushers so far upfield that when they did get in range of Cutler, he had room to step UP in the pocket to deliver the pass.
    And I agree with MB30 - without the penalties, the margin would have been in the 30's or 40's. Don't know what pissed off Olin, but he was deadset on blocking guys in the back all game.

  • In reply to 750mL:

    Dolphins stuck it to a tough Titans team. They are a tough team.

    Butter replaces Adams at NT on passing downs now. He no longer plays the 3 spot. I watched the fumble recovery on slow mo. Butter is playing on one leg. After he retires we may eventually find out the real story of what happened to the guy. He's trying to do everything with his upper body now.

    We are fortunate Toeina turned into a stud this year and Melton's motor just doesn't stop. They really shored up the D. Melton backs up Toeina at 3, and then backs Pep up on the outside. He's mister everything out there.

    Nobody will call this out, maybe Hub on AM radio would, but it's quite a step up having Pisa play the strong side. He cuts under blocks and pursues well, and he tackles solidly. Watching the game, I stopped focus on 55/54 combo and watched 59. He's hard to block because he sheds lead blockers really well.

    Nice to see Pringles in there to defend the deep ball and spell Harris. Harris is such a run safety and such a liability deep.

    With Pennington and Henne out for the fish, we have a nice shot to start to roll here and start playing some playoff football.

    Not to get my hopes up on this, or jynx it, but we're winning and staying healthy.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Looked like Thigpen might give the fish at least as good a chance to win as Pennington would have.

  • In reply to reprisal:

    I agree. it would be inadviseable to take Thigpen lighty. I find it hard to Believe he's not at least a #2 somewhere. Lord knows he would be the clear #1 for the Cardinals.

    I would have signed him in a second over TC.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Coodoze to all the Bears on the victory as the euphoria will be good until about midnight.

    Now let me see here - the Cowboys have put up 33 points (so far) against the vaunted, recovered Ji-ants with "new hire" Garrett. Does this mean that if we let Lovie loose (some alliteration there) that we can put up 66 against the Peckers?

    J. Garrett had that "mean and hungry look" "smile of a wolf" during Wade's Last Game (a recent direct to DVD release).

    Frazier has the same "mean and hungry look" and received some camera exposure today.

    Now it's getting to be time to beat up on the dauphins.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    That was a really fun game to watch. Having Hester back on KO returns is a wonderful thing and such a no brainer I can't imagine why not having him in there has gone on so long. I know that it's because it makes LDL and Angelo look like dumb asses so they want to avoid it, but everyone knows they are dumb asses anyway (and they know it)so whats the big deal? They should have done this a long time ago. If it's because someone on the Bears coaching staff is reading 'Da Blog, then thank you!

    I thought we could win this game but was very concerned that our Oline would be the disaster they have been all year or longer. They really seem to have a pretty decent game and held a strong defense in check all game. Can one of you guys with more football smarts break it down for me? Was this a real improvement in line play, or did the queens D phone this one in?

    My boss is from Minnesota and is a big queens fan. I talked him in to coming over to watch the game today and he showed up in his purple Randy Moss jersey. This made the game that much more fun today of course. It also won me a free lunch this week.

  • In reply to reprisal:

    And the O-line that stays together, blocks together.

    Miami is in a tenuous position; their QB situation has been iffy and with Pennington suffering another shoulder injury today, Henne will be playing without a safety net on Thursday.

    Henne was hurt as well. We may see Thigpen.

  • In reply to pizzatime7:

    seriously? Thigpen...man, that would be something. We need all the help we can get on a short week. Miami runs it a hell of a lot anyway, and play small ball, a 3yard pass here, a 4yrder there...it oughta be a good match-up for our D.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Yeah, I didn't catch the game; Thigpen is a nice 3rd string QB, but I imagine we'll see a ton of wildcat if Henne is out.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Thigpen is their best QB.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Not by a large margin - he was a scrub on a horrendous Chiefs team. He may be a better fit for the Wildcat than Henne, but they won't run it with him at QB while the other two guys are dinged up. If they lose him, Purple Drank will be taking snaps.
    He's a nice 3rd stringer with poor vision, poor accuracy, but above average mobility and strength.

    I love the short week because i get to watch the Bears that much sooner but that has to suck for the players that can barely get out of bed until tuesday afternoon because they are so sore.

    If we get this kind of performance on Thursday we win by 14. Also, that is a lot of pressure to be 1.5 games ahead of the Pack as they go into their game on sunday vs the vikings. Hopefully the vikes bring their A game and steal one from the Pack.

    Looking pretty poor on both sides of the ball so far.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    ...but lucky to only be down 3. Come on, offense.

  • You've really outdone yourself with the game thread photo.

  • I am pissing myself.

  • BEAR DOWN

  • Hahahahaaha yes that is awesome. Nice to have something lighthearted before a NFC NORTH game that's not for the faint of heart.

  • Excellent Jeff.

    Shady, where you been man? You missed Haiku day yesterday.

    Jeff, you too. Care to throw one out there man?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    With a name like Shady, do you really need to ask?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    btw, favorite pic above... bottom middle. Hee hee.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    My fave too. Love the collage. Well done Jeff. I read the other day that Loadholt and Shiancoe lead the Queens in false starts with 4 or 5 a piece. Sounds like a good spot for Pep. However, last year with Carolina Pep almost put McKinnie on the bench with 4 sacks. Hope he's on fire today. We'll need it.

    Btw, I was watching some nfl network show last night with collinsworth, Simms, and Sapp. Couple thoughts:

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yeah i saw the segment as well, but Im not quite sure what you're talking about. He made a comment about liking the referee, the Bills QB due for a pick, and getting out of Canada and back on US soil. I also remember him getting fired up after the INT. What did you see? Lack of interest maybe at times...

  • In reply to Shady:

    He just seemed really immature Shady. Chipping at one of the coaches for clapping, whining about them putting fitzgerald's pic on the jumbotron a lot... like he was jealous about it, sitting on his own with the other QBs; just being whiney about everything.

    He just doesn't strike me as a leader, firing up the other squads, telling everyone to get on it... I get it was just a few 10-second clips out of 3 hrs, but man... guy just doesn't strike me as a guy who

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yeah hard to tell with the biased media filters.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    So maybe the OL is capable of effective run blocking. Here's a play breakdown with a great combo block from CW, and an edge seal by Omi. It's just one play (Forte's 6 yard TD run vs Seattle) of course, but a good one:

    I'm not blind of course to the bad plays the OL has made too. Hopefully we see more of the good stuff today though!

    bbwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!! primo!!

    blogfader.....can we have that made into T-shirts!! we can sell that to the Viqueens fans and make some $$$ off those bitches!!!! +1

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    p.s. blogfader..I think I may have lost all bowel movement on that one!!!!!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB....hate to say it but a 20something...no maturity at all..this is were a Bulger who has been in the league sometime could of guided him...no he just has another big ego in Martzy....

    examples:
    Samuri-Rays Lewis
    Montana-Steve Young
    do I need to go on?

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    Guy makes ridiculous money Lobo. He was brought here to deliver us... being a 20 something isn't a good enough excuse for me.

    Grow up and lead this team dude.

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    Funny to think that Steve Young said he learned the game of football sitting on the bench at BYU watching Jimmy Mac ... high praise.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Well, I haven't seen enough to say one way or the other.

    However I will say I would not be surprised if NFL Network cherry-picked out the clips that were most childish sounding, so they could paint the picture of him they want.

    Here's a counter-example: in Hester's "mic'd up" segment, Cutler sounds commanding in the huddle (about 1:23 in)...

  • In reply to 750mL:

    Also, Trib reports Harvin is active, likely starting. If you missed it, Rice is still on PUP.

    For those into "X-and-O"s Matt Bowen (from NFP) details one of Smith's nickel zone blitzes here, that he thinks we'll see this game on 3rd down at some point. (BTW, DJ Moore's INT vs Redskins came on a disguised nickel blitz...)

    And NONE of the above photos has been re-touched!

    re-douched maybe

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Throwbacks? NICE.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I'd feel sorry for Favre if he didn't deserve it. What an embarrassment. My only regret is that this didn't happen while he was in Green Bay - maybe there weren't any hot "game hostesses" around. Oh wait now they're calling Sterger a sideline reporter to give her more legitimacy. Da Coach was asked about the sexting shit and he said, why wait 2 years? I think that's a legitimate question. Almost seems like she was flattered at first, kept collecting the texts/pics and thought they were amusing, then when Favre's stock was falling she thought now was the time to cash in. We'll see when all is said and done if there is any evidence she told him "stop your shit or I'm going to the league and the police".

    Enough Favre. Can anyone translate Haugh to English for me?

    "I maintain you don't have to be good to make the playoffs, especially this year, only good enough. But those of us who believe NFL teams need not apologize for where they are in the standings, regardless of how they look on the field, have run out of rhetorical wiggle room."

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Jeff, Greatest game pic thread ive seen. Super funny.

    I hoping for the best from our boys but Im expectin a stressful game. Im gonna have to take some valium before this one.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB, here you go. Not the NFL Network segment, but cb.com has the clips you're talking about and more...

  • In reply to 750mL:

    Thanks Michael. I get there's always the media bias, he just doesn't strike me as a brady or manning (uuuhhgggg)

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    at least he doesn't do any gaywad commercials

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    only bummer about a missed field goal is that Hester doesn't get a chance to return the kickoff :(

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    There is no bummer about a missed FG. Hester returning one would be an added bonus.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    OMG we converted on 3rd and 11. Haven't seen that in awhile...

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    beautiful play call. Fuck man, what the fuck... the refs are all over us!

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    awesome

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Love it. Take away my TD on a BS call? Fuck you, here's another.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    To come back and score after that penalty, I'm impressed....

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    what a fucking throw.

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    see what happens when you use him where he's supposed to be used. Greg Olsen as a WR is the only way to go. Pay to his strengths, not his weaknesses.

    We're going to win this game. Vikings are going down.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    say what you will about olsen! dude's got hands when he wants to use em.

  • In reply to pizzatime7:

    see above Pizza. he's a WR not a TE.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    couldnt be more correct MB

  • In reply to pizzatime7:

    Agree with all 3 of these posts

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    We have an OLINE!

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    No we don't.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Major Penis sighting!!!!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    nice d. let's see 7 more. lovin the third down conversions and the patience on offense right now.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    From what I can hear, the crowd seems into it. I know there were some comments last week about how meek they've been in past home games this year...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    yeah, holy oline batman!??!?! Is it that or is it just that the vikins dline went from frightening to nothing this year? Hope it's the former. They're looking excellent today.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    ...excellent for us.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    dude, maynard, wtf?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    fuck.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    damn.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    secondary let down...

  • In reply to underway:

    Yeah Harvin is the only decent WR out there. That was fucking embarassing.

  • In reply to underway:

    this is fucking ridiculous.

  • In reply to underway:

    he fuckin slipped.... no love at home from the refs

  • In reply to underway:

    Yeah Manu did not have the guy engaged up top. That is a bad call.

  • In reply to underway:

    uuuummmmmm.... play calling??? boo yah.

  • In reply to underway:

    hey, look, Cutler can run!

  • In reply to underway:

    This same douchebag ref called a chop block twice last week against the Lions OT. Both times there was only 1 OL engaged but the ref said they used a decoy to "lure" the DL into the chop block. Needless to say it was a bullshit call.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Decoy, lure? WTF. What a douche.

  • In reply to underway:

    cut you gotta make that throw

  • In reply to underway:

    beautiful

  • In reply to underway:

    YES!!!!!!

  • In reply to underway:

    Devin! fuck yes. this is gunna be reviewed.

  • In reply to underway:

    Holy Shit guys.... The offense looks like just that....

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    ugh

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    rashied davis. nasty.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    whjy is forte such a puss? Nice work scrappy.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    nice, gotta punish them if their gonna kick it short

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    hey old fucking geezer zebra... get off our fucking jock.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    line of the thread ...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    two weeks in a row with not knowing the fucking snap count or how to get set. protection looks decent but this is simple b asic shit.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Olsen lost the ball there

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    3rd and 6, 8 yard route! it only took 10 weeks...but maybe they are starting to get how this game works

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Olsen has a good block today! Good catch on the TD. Kruetz can be my body guard any day. Jay can shove anyone he wants, Olin has his back!

  • In reply to pizzatime7:

    Jay looks decent when you give him some time in the pocket. Good to see the O-line shape up.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    play

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Instead of bitching about Kreutz costing us a TD, I'll just say, Greg "Big Time" Olsen?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    BOOOOOOOYYYAAAAAAHHHH!! Take one TD away...Cutty goes right back and t back to olsen and does it again!! SWeet!!!

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    sweet

  • Very nice limerick Al!

    Ok, everyone ready for the return of the two bears chicks today? it is game day after all. The very very very best thread of the entire week! Yay!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'm sensing some sarcasm.

    From me Canada?!?!?!
