Two Monday Night Tidbits

The Bears are preparing to protest the playing of Monday night's game outdoors at TCF Bank Stadium because they believe the surface of the ground might actually be frozen.  (This seems to me, in the concussion age, a valid argument.)  The Vikings don't want to play in Indianapolis because they believe it will become a Bears home game (it would) and other options that are circulating now include moving the game to Atlanta - where ESPN will need to be next week anyway for the game between the Saints and Falcons next Monday night.  

My summary of all this.  Maybe if you are going to build a stadium in an area that receives heavy snowfall, you might want to cover it with something stronger than a trash bag.  Or you could always grow a pair and get rid of the roof altogether.
____________________________________________________________
Tarvaris Jackson has now been officially placed on IR by the Vikings with a terrible case of turf toe.  (Seriously, you couldn't last two games?)  This means that Joe Webb is the expected starter with newly-signed Patrick Ramsey ready to come in should Webb not look up to professional standards.

    Awesome.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Good editing on the vid. I especially liked the cigarette butt hitting the asphalt. Maybe that's what the players heads will look like at TCF Bank stadium on Monday night.

  • Joe Webb is, of course, the grandson of Jack Webb.

  • "cover it with something stronger than a trashbag". Classic. Jeff you're like TBS, "Very Funny".

  • Seriously, if the the Bears lose this game the entire coaching staff needs to be overturned. Not wait and see what happens. This game is not an any given Sunday game,this is a terrible team that stands in the way of the playoffs. A loss would be incomprehensible.

  • In reply to jbenton:

    What worries me is if we had no pass rush against the Pats due to the surface, how does that suddenly appear versus the Vikes? So the question becomes can we beat them without a pass rush ...?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Our guys will use cleats instead of turff shoes this time... promise and cross my heart.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    "Have you got the wing?"
    Wuke?

  • If the Bears don't file an official protest today I will be sorely disappointed. Comment boards that I've read ridicule the Bears for this, but the Vikings are concerned too. Plus most people on the boards don't realize that Lambeau and Soldier Field have heating coils that keep the ground from being frozen solid. The college filed will probably ice up in spots and there will be potentially dangerous spills - not a slip here and there like on our crummy field - but you may see a player doing a Charlie Brown and landing on their head. I ocudl see the game getting ugly. I know they want the game in Minny, but their home field is not usable and the alternative is not safe.

    Another option being discussed by fans but not the media is playing in GB. Advantage for the Vikes in that its relativley close to Minny and the GB fans that woudl show up woould want the Bears to lose to help their playoff chances.

    Anyway, I suspect a decision must be made today.

  • In reply to BillW:

    Wilf doesn't care about the players, he doesn't care about the fans - Vikings or otherwise, and he sure doesn't care about the money.
    This is about his ego now.

  • In reply to BillW:

    The league seems to be digging in on the issue...

  • In reply to BillW:

    From what i've read, they haven't even got the snow off the field yet to see how frozen it is. Besides that, there is fear that the snow removal effort will damage the field.

    I'm surprised ESPN isn't weighing in on this - how fast can they get equipment set up in another city if the game is ultimately moved? Or can they simply rent the equipment used on the Sunday game in whatever stadium it is moved to? Unlikely, since the camera would likely have CBS or FOX logos on them.

  • In reply to BillW:

    I didn't realise they had degrees of frozen - either way it's bad news for our defense. If we give Ramsey a 100+ QB rating I will puke fire.

  • In reply to BillW:

    Oh yeah, and it's been announced it will be General Admission seating by level...and there will be no alcohol sales in the building (so lots and lots of it in the parking lot, in line, in cars on the way to the stadium).

    Yeah, how could that go wrong?

    (smacking my forehead really hard)

  • In reply to BillW:

    "Wait until you grow some Bear fans! Watching a Bear game with your equally passionate kids is like nothing else! Congratulations and good luck to you and your bride to be!"

    I wholeheartedly endorse this sentiment!! I was at the '85 championship game with my Dad and we hugged as Wilbur Marshall returned the fumble in the snow. I told my oldest boy that story and he never forgot it. Many years later, we're at Soldier Filed watching the Bears beating the Saints for a trip to the Super Bowl. Near the end of the game when it was assured we'd win, I turned to hug him and he had tears in his eyes. he never had to tell me - I knew he dreamed of that happening since I told him the story about my dad and me.

    On the downside - he called me up after one particularly horrible Cubs season and said "damn you Dad for making me a Cubs fan". So there's that....

  • In reply to BillW:

    Awesome story Bill - although I lived in Texas at that time (precursor to my later permanent move here in '94) - I was at that game too, in town for holidays - and then Dad scored 5 Super Bowl tickets and took all four kids to New Orleans - had the time of my life, Thursday through Monday - and Dad got to see the franchise's crowning achievement (at least in his adult life), he was only around for another 5 years.

  • In reply to BillW:

    tear... sigh. I cant wait till my boys get bigger. They already wear Urlacher jerseys every game day. As for the Cubs part, that sure is funny to hear.

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    My family did it to me too. I was a Cubs fan before I was a Bears fan, if you can believe it.

  • In reply to BillW:

    Glad you weren't there with your son when we got rear-ended by the Colts Bill. That's a whole other experience one does not want to share with one's family. *Massive* disappointment.

    Come to think of it, I only hugged my father in public once too. Packie Bonner saved Daniel Timomftei's penalty at Italia '90 to send us into the quarter finals against Italy. Then again, everyone was hugging everyone else too.

    Sometimes sport is all fathers and sons have. Even in the hard times when me and my old man mightn't have had too much to say, we could always go racing together and just talk horses.

  • In reply to BillW:

    So they're not even sure yet if the field is frozen? You'd think the first thing they'd have done was to clean off a patch and check. If there are any season or career ending injuries, look out. I wonder if the powers that be have consulted with their legal departments to see what the exposure might be as far as getting sued by an injured player...

  • In reply to BillW:

    Ticket policy:

    Two thoughts:
    Their upper level tickets are only $29??? WOW - they can't get more than that for an NFL team??

    It's strictly first come - first served. When it is filled to capacity, they will refuse admittance. Hope they have a strong police force handy.

    Oh - no alcohol will be served. But it's a Monday night game. So I guess people will have to "pre-drink" as my kids say.

    And if it turns out they have to move it anyway...

  • In reply to BillW:

    The folks that paid big dollars for their tickets on Stubhub must be pissed. Shell out hundreds for those 50 yard-line seats, and now you get to wait in line in the bitter cold in the hopes that you can get nearly the same seat.

    Am I the only one that finds it slightly amusing that the Vikings ticket office is on Chicago Avenue?

  • In reply to jrnymn17:

    Screw that - I didn't pay hundreds and I'm terrified of what that line will do when the gates open. It's going to be bonkers.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    General admission with the gates opening at 5pm? So people are going to have to SIT in that weather for 6 hours to watch the game. It's not just the players that could be in danger, it's the fans. More than a few people are going to get frostbite not moving around in those conditions. Everything about that article pissed me off. A bunch of idiots.

  • In reply to BillW:

    I think this whole stadium fiasco is plain foolish. I understand there's a local economy that needs this game to be played at home in Minnesota, but the risk to the players isn't worth it. Players' seasons and - not to be too dramatic - careers are on the line. Why is the NFL fucking with that? Pisses me off.

  • As a resident of Indianapolis, BRING THE GAME HERE!!!!!!!!!

  • Turns out there's an actual internal cutoff time for the Vikes to pull the plug on TCF (as per Frazier's comments today), but they won't say a word to anyone outside of the organization.
    This smells to high heaven.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    For the Vikings to win this game the internal decision will probably be 20 minutes before the game and then they'll decide it will be in Atlanta as the Bears are in the TCF locker room.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Are we all going to be invited to Dmband's funer... err.... wedding?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I don't want to have to be the only one around here to wear the Non-Cynic Hat but DMB, a great marriage is better than any great relationship you've ever had. 17 years and running for me, it's not perfect but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Be flexible! Respect each other. It can be hard to figure out at first but you're in it for the long haul, and after the kinks get worked out, if you're lucky like like me, it just gets better and better. Throw kids in and to me it's heaven on earth. Wait until you grow some Bear fans! Watching a Bear game with your equally passionate kids is like nothing else! Congratulations and good luck to you and your bride to be!

  • In reply to PhilfromSATX:

    very nice phil. Now I feel badly for poking fun.

    All in good fun!

  • In reply to PhilfromSATX:

    Hopefully he knows we were just yanking his chain... except for maybe GP, who I glean from some previous posts has had a not so nice divorce (I know, is there any other kind).

    Sorry GP. At least you're not my friend, who's going to be payin a couple grand a month in kid support for the next 16 years... for a three night stand. Ouch.

    "Yeah, I was with the same woman for about 16 years and one day, we was layin' in bed and she said, 'Dodger, don't you think it's 'bout time we got married?'. And I told her 'Yer probably right, darlin', but at this point, who'd have us?' "

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Tear the fucking roof down and make that shit an outside stadium. Maybe for once the Queens could start acting like real Vikings.

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    Thank you, Bud Grant.

  • In reply to PhilfromSATX:

    I will also retract my earlier comments, for the most part. Just passed the 16 year mark, and no, it's not like year 1, but we are happy and life is good. Wouldn't have it any other way.

    And: raising the next generation of Bears fans is a definite blast.

  • In reply to PhilfromSATX:

    why would the Vikings go to LA? am I missing something?

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    A new stadium, without a collapsable roof, would be part of that picture and the NFL is HELL-BENT on putting a team back into the L.A. market, despite the fact that it would be the 4th attempt (Rams, Chargers, Raiders all came and went).

    Oh, and as far aa Darth Davis in Oakland is concerned, L.A. is still HIS territory and he will sue if / when the NFL tries to put a franchise there.

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    I like the Green Bay idea, with Vikings fans getting first dibs. It makes a hell of a lot more sense than making people "guard" seats for 6 hours at UM stadium. Talk about screwing the fans. They have til Saturday to mail back their tickets, but still don't know where the game will be played. Huge PR mistake. If they want home field, they should move it to the Fargo Dome. It only holds 19,000 but it would be a home game, and people can drink.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Some interesting footage of the open-air restrooms at TCF:

  • First in this thread. Implied qualification.

  • Of course SD... of... uhh... course.

  • Superman that Hoe!

  • Just give him the rock.

  • NFC North would get the Rams in return I would imagine. No sense in leaving a ST. Louis team in the NFC West.

  • or how about...

    "Just like a Viking. Brings a knife to a GUNfight."

  • Have to figure The Rams and Queens would swap divisions. I would think St.Louis would love to ditch the 3 automatic trips to the Pacific time zone (unless they go to Phoenix in November or later, in which case it's only the Moutain time zone).

  • Rodgers will not practice and be assessed on Saturday.

    I think the Packers would be foolish to risk him.

  • Some good line in that movie, but I find it quite flawed.

    Ness to Mountie: "Well, you're NOT FROM CHICAGO."

  • I just visited the Gophers website and the turf is Field Turf, not natural grass. Will that make a difference, freeze-wise? Couldn't find any info on that. Here's a link:

  • Hey Viva... guess who's picking the Vikings +3...

    Chicago Bears (9-4) at Minnesota Vikings (5-8)
    Five below zero. Antarctica football. Fiftieth anniversary celebration of the franchise in the Twin Cities. First outdoor home game for the Vikings in 29 years. Ridiculous, silly ... but very satisfying. Adrian Peterson's the best man on the field, and whoever plays quarterback for the Vikings won't matter.

    So, I agonized over which kicker to start this week in FF.
    At the last minute, I tried to put 49er kicker, Jeff Reed into the lineup but it was after 6:20 MST and Yahoo wouldn't let me. Lucky me, he only scored 1 PAT tonight, right? (Cue lee Corso) "Not so fast, my friend". Guess who my other kicker is? That's right, Mason Crosby of the Packers! That 1 point by Reed may look good to me come Monday if only action Crosby sees Sunday is on the 1st or 2nd half kick-off.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    If anyone else has the ability to go, do it - there's lots of tickets available (Vikings fans are dumping their tickets left and right now because it's going to be cold and because of the GA policy).
    If anyone decides to show up, let me know and we can establish a Bears section. I'll bring the coffee.

    Nothing against Blake Edwards but the real news is Bob Feller passed away. Rapid Robert was 92. Loved that guy. We're both originally from Iowa and I met him once. Not very friendly but was always honest (some would say blunt). In Old Timers games the pitcher is supposed to serve up lollipops for the hitters. He would throw curve balls and strike everyone out. Also, my favorite quote when Michael Jordan took up baseball; "He'll never make it. He couldn't hit a curve ball with an ironing board." He will be greatly missed, esp. by the Cleveland fans. RIP.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Feller was the on the mound for the Indians in the opening game of the 1948 World Series. In the 8th inning of a 0-0 game, Feller had Phill Masi picked off. The Ump blew the call and Masi later scored the game's only run.

    Feller's another athlete who lost 3+ career years to WW II service and I don't me doing public relations. He enlisted 2 days after Pearl Harbor and was a Gun Captain on the USS Alabama, earning 8 battle Stars.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    There is some real bullshit going down here somewhere and I'm sorry if this is the 50th year celebration and the last home game for the Vikings and they want to honor the former players. Had they been on top of taking care of the Metrodome then we wouldn't be going through this shit right now.
    The Nfl is wrong to be doing this..but they are pushing forward because the NFL is paying for the snow removal from what I read, so we must save face on the decision to go ahead and not be embarrased.
    This also makes the concussion issue look like a complete farce. The real truth seems to be "it's all about the money" like usual. ESPN is broadcasting the game and apparently is would cost too much to have to set up elsewhere, and the broadcast right..etc...etc...
    What really is sad is that the Bears have absolutely no choice in the matter it seems. I cannot fathom Lovie and the management staff agreeing to this absurd decision and not having the safety of the players come first.
    One blog out of Minn called the Bears a bunch of pussies for not wanting to play under these conditions. This is real simple..if the NFL wants to have an outside game and not give the Bears the homefield advantage. Green Bay is the place to go. In my opinion the choice should have gone to the Bears first since they are the opposing team and the NFL should have kept the fucking nose out of it!

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I know I am only parrotting many fellow DBB denizens, but I HAVE to say it.

    Attention King Roger and your NFL Minions; Feel free to drop all pretense / lip service about your "concern" for player safety and/or the welfare of your fans. Not only are you are insisting this game be played in dangerous weather conditions on a questionable, at best, field, but it's also being played at night, as if to INSURE antarctic tempuratures. Why not just put up a sign saying "Welcome football fans and screw you very much"?

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Via Rotoworld...

    Coach Mike McCarthy hinted in a Friday morning radio interview that Matt Flynn would be his starting quarterback at New England Sunday.

    "He's had a good week of practice, and this is always a big hurdle for a quarterback when he gets his first start," said McCarthy. "This is something he'll really benefit from." McCarthy has yet to make it official, but it certainly sounds like he's accepted the reality that Aaron Rodgers (concussion) won't be available. Expect to hear confirmation on Flynn by Saturday at the latest. This won't be a game-time decision. The Boston Globe's Greg Bedard has been hearing "all week" that the Packers knew Rodgers wouldn't start. McCarthy wanted the Pats to prepare for both QBs.

    If this is true, the division is in the bag ladies and gents!!

  • In reply to Dmband:

    of course DM.

    Yeah, and it's totally the same risk level for both teams... it's not like either of us have a chance to win the north, go to the playoffs, and compete for a SB.

    So injuries are about on the same level for both teams. Fucken a.

    This is total bullshit.

  • In reply to Dmband:

    Here's another fun fact I heard:

    At the Minnesota lowa game at the end of the season they had a similar issue with the ground being frozen and there was a pulled hamstring and 2 concussions in that game.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I cannot believe the league is going to allow this shit show to take place at U of Minn. If it was natural grass that would be one thing, but frozen turf grass is just asking for multiple season ending injuries, especially at the tail end of the season. I've played on turf grass during the summer and it is hard as rocks on knees or whatever else you fall on. Swelled up a bunch of body parts playing with reckless abandon at the DE spot for my grad school team. Add unthawed and frozen conditions to the turf in and it's going to be like falling on concrete. This has recipe foooor diiiiissssaaaaastter written all over it. The NFL will be exposing themselves to multiple forms of liability, both from players and fans.

  • THAT is one of the most disgusting visions I've EVER heard SD. Thanks for that.

    Hurt locker snuggie anyone?

  • Now THAT is what you get when you have a real fucking #1 WR!

    Did you guys see that shit?

    Oh, and DM, might want to invest in one of these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5Vb9SLkq5k

  • Lovely, thanks.

  • Seeing V-Jack go up for that random jump ball over Nate Clements ... I don't even need to finish the sentence ....

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    It's official: I now hate the Vikings more than the Packers. Still not as much as the Eagles, but now The Queens are #2.

    This whole thing with the stadium really pisses me off. No lol.

  • Why did we get rid of Garay again?

  • That would make this whole bizarre episode worthwhile.
    But honestly, I think unless DH is wearing skates, there's no way he's taking one to the house.

  • Worst field he ever played on. Great.

  • I have a novel idea. If the Bears get pushed into this game, and the field is frozen but the NFL takes a stand on it. Make a statement: forfeit. Just refuse to show up.

    What can the NFL do? Vikes have nothing to lose and we have everything to lose. If Hester breaks a leg on that ice, how much did we just lose? We don't need the win that badly, we can finish up at Lambeau and secure the division that way.

    There is politics, and there is stupidity. I hope the Bears management throws down over this.

  • Doesn't anyone in Eden Prarie have a very large, snow, iced gravel driveway to play on?

  • Let the Vikings go to LA, which is going bankrupt, along with the rest of California and most city and county governments.
    We need to "support" our teams to make billionaires richer. Welfare to the rich really pisses me off.
    Miller Park in Milwaukee costs the average taxpayer in the five counties that support it about $300 a year to fund the stadium and the owners. My guess is over half those people could care less about the Brewers. It's the same way regarding almost all sports stadium deals. The idea that it "improves" the local economy is a farce. It's welfare for the rich.
    I'm not against people being rich, but I hate everyone else having to pay for it. That's what most NFL and other sports owners do. A good percentage of their wealth comes from taxpayers. It is disgusting.

  • The guy annoys me, but at least Jerry Jones paid for his own stadium. When a stadium is paid for through taxes, the tax never ends. The government just finds a new reason for the tax to continue.

    Let me tell you it is absolutely the right decision to marry the right girl. Just make sure its for the right reason. Because otherwise you'll be right screwed.

    Chicago tried the taxpayer funded nonsense when the olympics were in the conversation. To his credit, Daley put together a very comfortable cushion of private backers before the tax money would need to be used.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    It is a proven fact: None, repeat NONE of these tax financed stadiums has made a DIME for the taxpayers. Only the crooks who came up with the projections that claimed they would and the team owners made out. The taxpayers just get to pick up the multi-million dollar tab. They're still paying for the long-imploded KINGDOME and they'll be paying for a long time for the recently raized meadowlands. I can't stand Jerra Jones, but, yes, at least he financed his own palace in Dallas so I give him credit for that.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Tucson / Pima County taxpayers were fleeced to build the "TUCSON ELECTRIC PARK complex for the White Sox and the Diamondbacks to share for spring training. Whoops! The Sox and D'backs split town 2 springs ago followed quickly by the Rockies, who didn't want to be the only team in town for spring training, which, there no longer is any of in this town. BUT, the bill for the TEP complex is still on the books for several years to come even though it is now basically a White Elephant.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    But the name has a ring to it!

    God gave Michael Vick another chance, and he thinks everyone else should too.

    Did he honestly say "blowtorches" and "rock salt"??????

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    blowtorches and rock salt?

    sounds like a long night in a dungeon in Berlin.

    Da Skunk needs a new song to help him break the return record. The Superman has been played out, but this could get his mojo going to surpass Mitchell.

  • Already did my duty this year. Helped set free a tranny hooker with a mustache that got busted blowing Ron Turner. When all the makeup came off at the holding station, it ended up being Wanny.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Nice!

    Speaking of: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/McNabb-benched-for-Grossman-Redskins-players-fu?urn=nfl-297400

    Is he fucking serious? Jesus help them.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    That is just sick and wrong. Sick. And. Wrong.

    Why the hell did they trade for McNabb if they're going to bench him for Sex Cannon?
    There is no circumstance under which that should take place. Unless Donovan has been farting on Shanny's pillow, he should not be benched by the Redskins this year.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Not only did they trade for him, but they JUST paid him a $50M extension, like a month ago?!?!?

    Baffling.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yeah - not sure why you give a guy an extension and then bench him a couple of weeks later.
    I thought Shanny was supposed to bring "sanity" to the Washington operation.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    btw, for all queen trolls reading here and reporting back to your den-of-filth blog of choice... your own Ben Lieber has been as vocal about this bullshit decision than any of our guys.

    Your players are just as concerned with the conditions and their own safety... you turds just don't have anything to play for. You don

    Sheesh... need to chill out when I write. Effects my grammar.

    Blowtorches and Rocksalt is opening for the Stones this summer.

  • I listened to your band bro. I was most impressed with your skills at da bass only after 1 and a half yrs. I know I talked about starting up; just haven't gotten there yet. You guys have a nice mix of genres going on. Hard to pinpoint you guys, which I like. Very versatile and original. I would definitely come check you guys out at a bar. Keep going.

  • Requiescat in pace Blake Edwards and "Fireball"

    Bob Feller. Man, him Early Wynn and who were the other pitchers for the Indians then Al?

    Didn't Blake Edwards direct Peter Sellers when as Inspector Closeau said - "Beaump" and "Do you have a "rrrheaum?"

  • I knew I could rely on you Doc. Dude is belting it out. See above for comments on your music bro.

  • Excellent advice.
    DM, with all these goodies, you have no excuses now so don't screw it up...from yet another complete stranger.

  • Has anyone noticed how screwed up the DBB fantasy league is right now?
    ESPN must be having some real technical difficulties...which is nice considering it's the championship week for many leagues.

  • Doc, can you give me a link to your band?
