Bears Win First Shootout of My Lifetime

I'm not sure if my headline is a real statement but I'm going to believe it.  Why?  Because I can't remember the last time the Bears were so outmatched defensively and ended up winning a football game.  The quarterback, oft-maligned and oft-neglected, willed them to victory.  After making one terrible mistake, Jay Cutler decided to show the entirety of the Bears organization and fanbase that he is capable of putting this team on his shoulders and leading them to victory.

Now we embark upon the journey of taking the Packers from the playoffs.  Is it that important?  No.  But with the two seed there, why not take our longest rivals to the woodshed?
Goodnight my friends.  Until tomorrow...

    I hear ya - do you have any Madden games? I just bought 10 (why pay $50 for 11 when you can get 10 for under $15?) and my beautiful blushing bride bought me COD Black Ops for christmas...shoot me your PS3 tag if you ever want to shoot em up.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    ALL games are $2 in Thailand. if you ever wondered why games are so expensive in the first world - that's why.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Thanks MBP, I will most certainly do so.. If that ever comes to fruition.

    I'll tell you that at some point after this baby let's me sleep a little I have plans to convert my home office to a gaming/football fucking mancave mecca. Ok, maybe not, but that

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Merry Xmas! what a roller coaster ride! i was both scared out of my mind and giddy with excitement as i realized that teams are screwed when they play us. If we have Hester back they kick it short, if we put Manning up short we will either get a TD, the ball at the 40 or the ball in the opponents territory. Do you think they can figure out some short kick return strategy to take advantage of this.
    Watching the Bears be unafraid as they took shots at the endzone felt great. we haven't had that in this town in a long time and with Cutler and Martz we take shots mang. Game manager my ass.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    it turns out that we had Manning, Knox and Davis in the wedge to catch the short kickoffs. oh man any team that kicks to us is in for a nasty surprise.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    taking shots downfield against great CB's was great. Ballsy

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    although my name for Knox didn't catch on as captain caveman he definetly should do a geico commercial.
    It would be Da shiznit to rub our shiznit in the faces of the fudge packers by sitting our starters next week if the Eagles lose, but on the other hand knocking them out of the playoffs would be better. I can't wait till next week I have a couple packer trolls around me down here in texas and knocking them out like Mike Tyson with a win would give me bragging rights so get some bears and don't roll over for these pussies!!

    Da Bears can be the Buster Douglas of our dreams next week.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I'll take him as a linebacker coach in a hot second. I loved Samurai as a player he just wasn't a very good HC.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I don't know if I would want Samurai as a LBs coach. Samurai is a motivator, but Lach and Briggs, and I'd say even Pisa, are self-motivated. I'm not sure what Singletary would add. Can u imagine him screaming at Lach on the sidelines? That would not be good, to say the least.

    Maybe he can be our official cheerleader since we don't have any, and he can handle the post-game interviews instead of Lovie for purely entertainment purposes lol

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Ray Lewis was cool with him, said he made him a better player. Samurai would be a guy that might knock toughness into Hattie Hillenmeyer and not let him get away with loafing. We'll need a HOFer to coach up Lac's 'replacement' - I don't believe Babich can do that.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Hattie is the name of the 14 year old girl in True Grit. Tee hee.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    OK. Most of you probably know I am a big fan of classic movies. My collection of features is 300+ and the bulk of them are "oldies". The most films of any single actor are John Wayne movies.
    So, you'll understand that my initial reaction to the new TRUE GRIT was

    "WHAT?! You're remaking a JOHN WAYNE CLASSIC!?"

    That said, my daughter was visiting and she wanted to see it so we went and saw it last Friday.

    Have to admit, it's a damn good movie.

    That young actress, Hattie Steinfeield (?) , is outstanding as Matty. Beau Bridges and Matt Damon are excellent as well.

    There are some subtle changes in the plotline but the Cohen brothers also show respect for the original material.

    USA TODAY gave it 3.5 (out of 4) stars in their review and, to my surprise, I think it may even be better than that.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Wow. Chris Harris had 10 tackles, 1 assist and the game-stopping interception yesterday. Good game Chris. As we'll likely have no pass rush next week either, we can't afford to sit back and let Rodgers pick us apart. We've been dropping a lot of INTs lately ...

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Yeah, CHarris had a hell of a game. He got a shout-out from Briggs after the game too.

  • In reply to A7Xthebest:

    Thanks for that link. It was a little bittersweet to be reminded of the old Tommie Harris and the 2nd Booker era in Chicago. Also it reminds me of how different the 2010 team is than any of Lovie Smith's tenure. The Bears have won a lot of games by special teams and D before this year. I hope they don't break up the Cutler/Martz lovefest in the offseason. I'm eager to see what they do with a little more time in the system with all the young and emerging talent they have (and maybe a couple young studs on O-Line).

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    In the NE-BUF game, Buffalo had 7 turnovers. The Pats have had only 9 all season. Just, wow.

    And Forte was only the second 100 yard rusher allowed by Fattie's Jets. Can't wait til we have Tofu and UngaBunga back next season.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Tofu?

  • In reply to luftwaffle:

    We won't have either of them on the team next year Irish.

  • In reply to luftwaffle:

    Cutler/Forte dropped 46 (Get it? 46?) points into MBHP's lap for the "biggest game of the year".

    It all comes down to the Dog Killa.

  • In reply to luftwaffle:

    Irish -

    In Thailand, do they have PS3 games for $2 being sold by street urchins? I was to understand that the Blu-Ray technology made pirating the disks for Sony very hard, if not impossible. Xbox and Wii can be cracked, but not PS3.

    They were out on a tailgate in their daddy's car.
    They hadn't driven very far. (Green Bay is small)
    There in the lot, straight ahead.
    a car was rolled, the stereo was dead.

    They couldn't stop, they pounded bratwurst on sight.
    I'll never forget the sound that night.
    the screamin cries, the giant lard ass.
    the painful scream that I heard Last.

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    Yeah maybe even send Corey A. Wootton in for the kill at the same time. Id love another picture of a rival quaterback splatterd on the ground.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Forte was the first - Mendenhall had 99 once the League office realized the whole 9 yard first down thing last week.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    The Bears can definitely end up 12-4 and most of you know what a bye in the playoffs would mean to our teams post season hopes. Before the season started, 12-4 was not out of reach for the Bears as far as I was concerned and I am not surprised with where our record now stands. What surprises me is how we got to where we are at this point in time. I had thought the Bears would either be very good or very bad this year, and I had not envisioned a 12-4 team being blown out by the Giants and Pats. Having said that, in the back of my mind, this last match up against the Pack could go either way. I can see a close hard fought victory next Sunday afternoon or a lopsided loss heading into the playoffs. To me, the key to a victory on Sunday afternoon is going to come down to whether or not our Defense will be able to shut down Aaron Rodgers. Nice thread Jeff but I get very uncomfortable picturingthe Bears winning an offensive slag fest against the Fudgers.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    This season has ended up pretty much as I thought too. Completely unpredictable. I told many people before the season that I wouldn't be surprised at either 6-10 or 10-6. 12-4 is a little beyond my expectations though. Ecstatic? Yes Expected? No

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Our team has purpose. We are a goal oriented team. Focused on the prize. We have met every goal this year and we will continue to achive our next goal which is securing the bye. Its beautiful, because we get to beat our rival and claim the bye. Our entire team will need to play its best football. Every game we will fight the good fight and be triumphant in victory. We wont give up, we wont waver until we conqure every foe in our quest for greatness. And at the end of our jouney we will hold the precious lombardi trophy in our hands. We are a championship team that will continue press on torward greatness. We will step up meet evey challenge. We will capitlize on every oportunity. We will continue to play as a complete team and not rely on 1 phase but on all 3 to get the job done. All 8 cylinders baby and nothing less! GO BEARS!!!

  • In reply to BEARSFAN78:

    I have to say that I'm not so eager to face the Pats again in the Super Bowl. No one else in either conference scares me though.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Cheese trolls anyone? Sounds like a great snack!

  • In reply to Jlehr:

    Would that be with sharp cheddar or blue cheese?

    Whoa, Nelly! Let's not get carried away here.

    "Bears Win First Shootout of My lifetime." ???

    Look, I'm as charged up about jay Cutler as our QB as anybody. Yesterday I hypothesized that had he gotten the kind of protection all season that he got Sunday, he's probably closing in on 40 TD passes. I should have added that under those conditions, the Bears are probably AT LEAST 14-1, as well.

    But that headline just doesn't pass muster, Blogfather.

    Everyone thinks the '85 Bears won every game 24-6, 17-0 or some such but even THAT legendary defense had some less than stellar moments beyond the infamous Monday Night Debacle in Miami.

    What qualifies as a shootoutout? 50 points between the teams? 60?

    For my rebuttal, I'm setting the threshold at 50+ combined points, but I include 5 that were 60+ points which was what yesterday's threshold was.

    The Bears opened the '85 season with a 38-28 win over Tampa, a game they trailed 28-17 at the half.

    They beat the Browns 41-31 to open the '86 season in a game that was 34-31 until a 4th quarter Matt Suhey TD.

    Further evidence:

    Nov.1st, 1987: Bears 31, Chiefs 28. A game that was 28-17 Chiefs in the 4th quarter.

    Sept.6th, 1992: Bears 27, Lions 24. 31 points scored in the 4th quarter and it was Harbaugh to Waddle AS TIME EXPIRED to win it!

    Oct. 8, 1995: Bears 31, Panthers 27. Teams scored 14 EACH in the 4th quarter. Bears got the last 7.

    Oct. 15th, 1995: Bears 30, Jags 27. Teams combined for 27 4th quater points.

    Oct 22, 1995: Bears 35, Oilers (who?) 32.

    Oct 27th, 1997: Bears 36, Dolphins 33 in Overtime. A combined 29 4th quarter points including Kramer to Engram for a 2-pointer to force overtime.

    Oct. 4th, 1998: Bears 31, Lions 27. 27-10, Lions to start the the 4th.

    Oct. 28th, 2001: Bears 37, 49ers 31. The birthplace of "Mike Brown, Legendary Safety" as well as famous 1st round bust, David Terrell's, one brief shining moment (2 TDs in the 4th) as a Bear.
    Bears trailed 31-16 in the 4th quarter.

    Additionally, 1995 was Erik Kramer's record setting year when we all thought "HALLELUJAH! We FINALLY have a viable NFL QUARTERBACK!"

    Based on my research, I'm afraid I'm going to have to throw a FLAG on the Blogfather for...

    "Illegal procedure: Overstatement".

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    10 Hail Lovies and a loss of frown.

  • In reply to Jlehr:

    oh, and very quietly we've won the last 7 of 8... already 2 or the last 3.

    There's not much else to say but that we need this win to complete this season. Everything else will take care of itself after that.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Our linebackers are terrible at blitzing. That is what Singletary would add. He would ridicule them every time they get stood up by a pesky running back. Singletary ate running backs for breakfast on his was to the brunch that was the quarterback.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    +1. The Peter Principle.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I BELIEVE yesterday's win leaves the Ryans (Buddy, Rex and Rob) WINLESS as Bear coaching opponents.

    BHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    If we do not beat the Packers next week, we will play them the week later. It is the worst case scenario for us.

    We need the 2 seed. We need the Saints on our turf. Not the Packers at home followed by Eagles in Philly.

    Trust me, the biggest game of our season is next week. The Packers are dangerous, and you do not let dangerous opponents off the hook. They can be beaten, and M&M know how to accomplish same. But don't fucking lose that game. (The fortitude to overcome a loss to Green Bay and have to face them 6 days later is more, I fear, then we can overcome.)

    We need to beat them up in Lambeau and welcome the Saints with open arms two weeks later.

    Believe it.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    That depends - the Vikings could, in this infinitely varied and complex universe, beat Philly in two days and make the game at Lambeau meaningless.
    It would also tremendously help my chances of winning the DBB fantasy football championship.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    It would only be truly meaningless if both the Falcons and Vikings win... then they'll be locked into the #2 seed. If the Saints beat the Falcons tomorrow, then the #1 seed will still be alive.

    Though hrmm... both CAR @ ATL and TB @ NO are early games next week, so they may know before kickoff whether the #1 seed is still in play or not.

  • In reply to 750mL:

    I don't see Atlanta (assuming the Saints beat them tonight) losing to Carolina under any scenario next weekend. Even with the huge advantage Carolina has this week, 10 days to prep for Atlanta, who has only 6 days, they do not have the means to make that game close.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    The Vikings are not going to beat Philly, Posse.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    But it sure would be sweet if they did.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    I have had two dreams the past few days.... the first was us playing the eagles again and winning. Second was us playing the chiefs. I don't know how we are going to be playing them unless its the superbowl. So I hope my dreams are right.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Were you holding a green glowing crystal when you had them?

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    If we beat the Pack, we knock them out of the playoffs.

    If we don't, they probably get in as the wildcard, and we could end up playing them twice, although the winner of the wildcard will likely draw the Falcons at home, and that will be that.

    The Giants have come unraveled, the Vick New Meadowlands game has destroyed that team completely.

    The NY Press can barely keep their diarrhea inside their depends today, damn. All about how the Jets and their vaunted 5th ranked Defense got exposed, blah fucking blah.

    Cutler's arm does that to people. I could line up EVERY SINGLE Qb in the NFL, and have them try that throw to Knox on the flier TD. 4 or 5 could make the throw with that distance and accuracy. Brady, P Manning, and the list gets shaky from there besides Cutler. I don't think Matt Ryan or that Bradford kid can make that throw, not outdoors in the swirling wind, not on a dime like that. Vick could put the distance in, but not the touch to drop it in like that.

    But all you hear is blah blah, Jets must get it together, blah blah. Well, the front four suck and Jason Taylor may as well hang it up, that's for sure.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Wow that's weird. I had a dream last night that it was a Chiefs vs. Bears Super Bowl too. One side of my family is from KC and they are rabid Chiefs fans, so the outcome of the dream was total carnage for my family. The dream never included the conclusion of the Super Bowl though...my aunt and grandma were too busy gouging my eyes out as I awoke screaming.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    I wouldnt count on the lowly vikes to win but maybe they can do us another favor before they die.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    The Vikings have as much chance to beat Philly as they did to beat the Bears. Then they get the Cowboys
    in what is very likely the current Dallas coaching staff's farewell appearance. The Bears need to view Sunday as this season's first playoff game.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I love how each week brings a new batch of trolls and alas on Monday they are no where to be found. Winning is fun.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I agree we cannot let up..winning out will keep the momentum going, as well as secure the 2 seed. I wouldn't count on the Vikes to help us out any, don't think they stand much of a chance even if Farve was 100%.
    I also agree with BearsFan78 on this not being the 85 team or the "Monsters of the Midway" they were 25 years ago, that was then this is now. We need a new slogan for this group, but not till after they win the Super Bowl, business first! Maybe we could hold a contest for the best slogan to give them, and to try and make it stick when they win the SB. We have the most brilliant minds (and some real slimers too) on this blog, c'mon lets put a few beers..I mean heads.. together and give these guys their own identity.

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    Thanks... I look at this team and they are all around my age or younger and I identify myself with them and I see a cool team, a team with style, a team with pride but not arrogance. A team that has its own identity that we have never seen before in the history of the game. I feel apart of this great team and I am so happy to be apart of it. Its amazing, and there is so much more in store for us to clebrate. We haven't peaked yet our best is yet to come.

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    I think we should go with the Magnificient 7 theme on a t-shirt and have Pep, Lach, Briggs, Izzy, C.Harris, Cutty and Forte on there with cowboy hats on and street howitzers slung over their shoulders. Cavalarri could be dressed like a hooker with a heart of gold and draped on Cutty's shoulder.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Fuck Me! take out Harris and put in HESTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    Exactly viva. Remember the cowboys and philly last year? This next game IS the season AND the playoffs for us. Win it, and movie can claim total victory this year with the promise (no matter how real) of continued improvement next year.

    We HAVE to win this game. We simply have to.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Give Mr. Smith credit. He has Marinelli and Tice to play "enforcer". And I bet Martz doesn't mince words with the offense, either. Ergo, Lovie can be "Good Cop".

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    This was always going to be the biggest game of the season ever since the schedule came out. We need to get off grass and into domes where our defense can be effective - and funnily enough losing to Green Bay would the best way of achieving that. Unfortunately we can't let that happen. Do Green Bay have the number one defense now?

    They dismantled a team that dismantled us. This will be tough, no doubt.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I think Woodson called GB the #1 defense, but as far as I can see, they're 5th best in passing D but not in the top 5 rushing D or Total D. What gives?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Packers have allowed the fewest points in the NFC and are #2 overall.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    That dismantling came at a very different time in the Bears season. The O-line has come a very, very long way since then. The game against the Jets finally proved that. I doubt if the Bears met the Giants again (on any field) that they would lose again, but the game would take place in Chicago if they met again anyway.

  • In reply to buckbear:

    Exactly my thoughts Buck. I was going to mention this earlier as guys compare teams at different times of the season. The Pats today are a different team than they were in the first half. It just takes a hot streak, or a cool down and a meeting outcome can be very different.

  • In reply to buckbear:

    Where was the pressure from the Giants' line in the Green Bay game? My one concern about the Packers game is that we are able to get pressure on Rodgers with our front four. We didn't do that against the Jets--and, granted, I think the Jets have either the #1 or #2 OL in the NFL. If we can get to Rodgers, we win. If we can't, then I don't like our chances in a shoot-out up in Pack country. We need to crush his skull softly into the tundra.

  • In reply to buckbear:

    I'm not ready to annoint the O-line yet, despite yesterday's nice performance. The Jets' ability to rush the passer has been bad all season.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    The packers game is a must win in my book. Not only are they our arch rivals but they are a very good team with an outstanding QB. If we can beat them in their own house in a game they MUST win then we can go all the way gang. This game IS the SuperBowl for the Bears. They need to believe that and start tasting blood right now. We have to get to Rogers, stuff the run and Jay has to have a game like Sunday. We can do this and if we do LOOK OUT NFL, because if the Bears beat the pack next week they will be sooooo stoked it will be near impossible to put out the fire.

    BEAR DOWN!

    we went in gate c.. cousins got there early as well and saved us seats in the stadium. I think we were in section 239... 40-yd line about 15 rows up under the suites. Where were your seats? How'd you like the experience?!?!

    Where are the fairweather dickheads that were posting after the NE game? When I said it was an anomaly? When I got super pissed and said I was done with this blog? Where are you fairweather fuckheads?
    BEARS!!!!!

  • In reply to bearsinwi:

    Yeah lets focus on winning out, playing good BEAR football..

    With a win over the packers we will be the first NFC North team to sweep the division since the NFL realigned in 2002...

  • In reply to BEARSFAN78:

    Yeah, I'm still kind of sore that that didn't happen in 2006 when they had the #1 seed locked up going into the finale vs GB.... It's time to make amends 4 years later!

    Corey Graham was a ST highlight unto himself today - good for him. I love seeing guys who have started busting their asses and making a difference on ST. Davis is another one.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Corey - as always - was particularly outstanding today.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Corey U Rock! Keep up the good work!

  • In reply to bearsinwi:

    I'll take sucking AND being division champs.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Thassright.

    "Ignorance is bliss."

    The Nazi's were still thinking they that were the "Master Race" even after Jesse Owens and Ralph Metcalf were kicking their asses in the sprint events in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

  • Man, and I can't believe some Bears fan wanted Samurai instead of Lovie. I can't even imagine hims as LBs coach.

    Sparano might be next. 1-7 at home...how does that happen?!

    Coughlin too now might be canned as well. Funny, all three coaches that were on the hot-seat lost in bad way, and The Jaw is chomping at the bits.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    I remember that too. And some of us quoting Buddy Ryan on Singletary. No thanks - not as a linebacker coach, scout, or anything else.

    Let's just leave his affiliation with us alone. Being part of the awesome Bears Hall of Fame MLB pedigree is good enough, right?

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Buddy Ryan has NO business judging folks as Head Coaches. He is the POSTER CHILD for NFL's Peter Principle Head Coaches.

  • And ditto on the not working for the 49ers. I hated them more than any team back in the 80s and 90s. I appreciate Joe Cool and JR now, but man did hate I those guys back in the day.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    And don't forget "The Genius", Bill Walsh. I lived in the Bay Area in the late 80s and through the 90s. I came to truly hate the 49ers. Listening to Walsh babble on in victory or whine on in defeat became too much to handle. Their fans are the most obnoxious assholes to opposing fans who risk life and limb to attend games at "The Stick". We had to leave one game because my wife could not take any more of the truly nasty/vulgar verbal abuse and was sure I was going to be arrested for attempted murder of a whiner fan, which I probably would have.

    All that is to say that while Mike Singletary was at the 49ers, something was wrong in the world. The universe has regained its equilibrium.

    I went to the last game with my kids and some friends, when they played the bears at the stick. Those motherfuckers were throwing ketchup and mustard at us. I too almost went to jail, but for my kids sake I kept my cool.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Ya, I have a 9er fan, and he always talks/texts shit. I've been saving all my rage up, and after we beat the FUDGE, I will unleash a season's worth of vulgarity about the 9ers that would even make George Carlin blush...fuck the 9ers

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    I got one also, who is so ignorant and swears his team is still the greatest.
