  • First to say - kill this snake.

  • SECOND that, Viva!

  • Don't think I'm going to be able to stand the Wangler love fest today. I've only been watching about 20mins and have had enough.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    between..Brett Girl..and Fuckdodgers.......

    I've thrown up in my mouth multiple times and the games have not even started yet..eeeeeeeeggggggggggghhhhhhhhh

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    Yep. Watched about 10 minutes or so of Queens-Lions and the announcers did nothing but fellate Favre.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Beat the Cheese.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    trac....AMEN.......... preach it!!!!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Happy New Year in High Definition

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Finally finished reading Doc Nitty's epic The 2010 Super Bowl Shuffle. While Doc has written a saga (epic) to rival the Bagahvad Gita and The Odyssey perhaps it might be changed to terza rima - similar to Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy.

  • In reply to kenbill:

    I had to write the same number of verses as the original.

    Where is everybody today?

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Hey Doc, the new Superbowl Shuffle is excellent!

  • In reply to mikev:

    Thanks, mang!

  • In reply to mikev:

    packers are fired up

  • In reply to mikev:

    Well its official gents. We cannot clinch the #1 spot, but we can eliminate the Pack with a win. Is it worth playing starters to get Tampa Bay over Green Bay?

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Sweeping the Fudgers and kicking them out of the playoffs? Absolutely.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    DJ's like bacon... I want MOORE!

  • In reply to kenbill:

    Well, If Lovie sits our starters from the get go I'll be VERY disappointed. We'll see what happens. I hope we start our starters from the beginning and pull them later. I really wanted a Bear victory today and if the Bears don't even try it will be a very sad day in our house for sure.

    BEAR DOWN and here is to hoping for the best!

  • In reply to kenbill:

    Damn Jack, I told ya quit making us all go to google, especially on game day. Man you put some crazy shit on this blog. The Dante dude? Does he have a pizza joint in the city?

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    You never heard of Dante's Inferno? That's the inspriation for pretty much every artist's impression of hell since.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Side note - in fact, if you read Paradise Lost... there hell is actually portrayed as cold.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Come on New, next time I'll write tongue firmly planted in cheek. If you had read the earlier posts about pizza places in Chicago you'd have gotten the gist of the post.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    I HATE the empty backfield with JC under center. All it amounts to is a backpeddling quick throw with no accuracy. Go shotgun there.

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    Why doesn't Martz like the shotgun?

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    Yahoo- interception!!!!!!!!! BEARS!

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    KRAKOOOOOOOM! - The ruling on the field stands.

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    interception stands!! Yeah baby!

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    Hey, btw... has anyone seen cheese dick and phrazondouche?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    what a tool

  • In reply to mottystone:

    I love Scrappy's game today, but he can't be our go-to guy. I want to see something from Knox, Olsen, Hester, or ever Chester on the next drive.

    Let's Go D!

  • In reply to mottystone:

    this better not be a momentum changer

  • In reply to mottystone:

    see that shot of that fat liyttle packer fuck eating some cheese or some shit

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I'm watching the Carolina game and there ain't no way the Panthers will even come close to winning their game.

  • It's looking more and more like Lovie will pull starters. Which really sucks because I really want them to sweep the Cheese, knock 'em out of the playoffs, go 6-0 in the division, and go into the playoffs on a hot streak. C'mon Lovie. Prove me wrong.

  • To the team we shall call

  • Q: How do you save a drowning Packer fan?
    A: Take your foot off his head.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Perhaps the question should be, Why would you save a drowning Packer fan?

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    To collect your winnings.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Good stuff.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Sometimes I'm not sure if I read this blog for the football or the humor. Good one SJ.

  • In reply to mikev:

    These early games are SO BORING. I thought we could use some good old Peckers humour....

  • In reply to mikev:

    +1000

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Come on Fres, I know your out there.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    No way we won't hear from him today. Give it about 2 hours...

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Fres will be back. Timing is everything. After we roll the Pack, he'll find his way back to the light.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Everyone on FOX pregame picked the Packers. First good sign.

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    DITKA picked the Pack. Very disappointed.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    He's drunk.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Bears will defeat the Packers just like the Patriots are crushing the Dolphins.

    Brady does not sit and so Culter will not sit.

    Green Bay is just a town in Wisconsin where every front yard is a used car and appliance lot.

  • In reply to bajeezes:

    Why does shit happen everytime I'm gone. Did doc do it again lol damn its great to be home

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    I'm thinkin Doc took Fres out New Years eve. Gave him some of those "shrooms" left over from the night hike. Fres added a considerable amount of Tequila and SHABAMMM.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    I don't know - that sounded more like a whiskey rant....

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    If we're up 24-0 at the half like NE was, I'm OK with the starters being pulled (although Danny Woodhead is out with a head injury but he looked OK on the sideline)...

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    I've had the Lions overrated coming out of the past couple training camps. Not next year. They are a good football team.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    Now watch them pick up a top ranked corner or safety in the draft to fix that secondary. Next year will be a three horse race for the playoffs if the Bears stay healthy. I almost want the Packers to make the playoffs so they slide a few more draft spots.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    Let's all thank the Lions for making sure Queens season and Favre's career ends with a loss.

  • In reply to mikev:

    Warms the cockles of my heart.

  • In reply to mikev:

    Here we finally go!!!!!!

    Bears 27
    Peckers Less

  • In reply to mikev:

    I think it's safe to say that at least 1 10-6 team will be watching the playoffs from their living rooms this year. Glad it's not gonna be the Bears. Beat the cheese. Ooooohraaaaaah.

  • In reply to mikev:

    Jesus, who's thayt Dump #45 for green bay?

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    Happy New Year everyone.

    Viva, can't wait to read your tome. Well done soldier.

    Hey Fres, FUCK YOU... FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK. Ok, I feel better... how about you? Here try this my man:

    * Tang
    * Large everything Pizza
    * BJ

    That should fix you up lad.

    FUCK Green Bay! Here's what needs to happen today:

    1. We need to fucking crush GB

    2. Giants need to lose

    3. Tampa already beat NO, so they get in instead of GB OR NY

    Boom.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    Are you saying the Queens will be the new lions?

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I don't think so. They still have some weapons and will get good again. Its just going to take them a year or two to rebuild.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Saw it Doc. Sweet. Well done man. Well done.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    HATE a slow starting offense.

    HATE a slow starting offense.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    How was that not a hold on Woot Woot!?

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Concussion please!

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    HAHA, Rodgers, what a pussy.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Did you see the spot on that punt? What are the refs suspending the rules of physics for this fucking game?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Laws... was pissed.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Nice double blockng effort Olsen!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Awesome. Fuck Green Bay. Please let's keep everyone in and beat the fuck out of these assholes.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    And there's our O-line. Most sacked QB in the league. 6-3 scoreline anyone?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Jesus, why not keep giving it to Forte on that drive?

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Preferably not up the middle ... any danger of some screen passes or wheel routes today?

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    scrappy DOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    fucking beautiful! oh my god.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    What's all the Santa Claus chatter about? It's January.

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    AIKMAN: I was in Santa Claus once ...
    JOE BUCK: And ?
    AIKMAN: Blah blah boring blah ... my friend has a farm there.
    JOE BUCK: Sounds like a lot of fun.

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    If we go up 10 - 0 heading into half time, what would you think if our scrubs started the 2nd half?

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    FUCK NO

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Echo

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Meanwhile, Rex Grossman trying desperately not to lay an egg in Washington. I guess I want the Skins to win, but it would have been a lot nicer to see almost anyone else beat the Giants.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I heart Tim Jennings.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Damn all this Maynard punting. I want some points.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I'd want Lovie fired right there in Wisconsin. If his mission statement is to beat the Packers then he'd better fulfil at least that, the low-expectation-havin mother finger.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I alsao want him fired if he lets the clock run out on the half without attempting to score.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    uh oh

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    run lovie, ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuun

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It's like game time near the end of the half doesn't exist for Lovie. I htought he talked about playing for sixty minutes - he actually means 56. See the Bucs today? Faked the kneel-down and scored a TD, that's winning football.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Has Knox got his 1000 years yet? I say keep the starters in until all of the respective milestones are sorted out, then evaluate the situation.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    I heart Pam Oliver. C'mon baby - WE CAN MAKE IT !!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I missed it- what did she have to say?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Scrappy DOOOOOO!

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Starters out to start 2nd half, good call Lovie.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    No, he doesn't even have a catch. But milestones shouldn't be a factor in this decision.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Bennett goes down and Scrappy becomes our number one.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    I wasn't crazy about not punting there...

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    How about now? Who dares wins baby!

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    How bout THAT play by Peanut!?!

    You wanna tell me these guys don't want this one?

    Hell Yes Baby!

    Defensive Play of the year right there! And it WAS a catch!

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    yep. agreed. Never touched the ground? How can that not be a legit INT? How?

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Dumb.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Don't blame him for going for it.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Peanut!!!!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Chills Tillman! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    +1

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Of course. He wants to win. If we lose, who cares. Might as well go be aggressive.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    On a side note, my internet feed of the game has commercials in Swedish btw, in case you were wondering, a Whopper is still a Whopper in Swedish)...

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    1/4 pounder?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Vincent Vega: 1/4 pounder? They wouldn't know what the fuck a 1/4 pounder was - they call it a Royale with cheese.
    Jules: What do they call a Whopper?
    VV: I didn't go into Burger King.

    Classic.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Dear Cutler: THROW TO SOMEONE BESIDES DAVIS!

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    If we had some receivers it would help.

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    GOD FUCKING DAMN IT!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Don't bite your finger nails MB, walk it off big fella.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    motherfucker man.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Why have the Bears abandoned the running game all of a sudden?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    There goes momentum.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Can anyone tell me why the Bears keep calling the 2 yard short again play on 3rd and long for the umpteenth time.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Hester + Knox + Olsen = no fucking receptions??

    Sorry, boys and girls, this is a one and done team in the playoffs unless Hester is going to run back six punts and Peanut runs back about six interceptions. I'll stick with a 6-3 scoreline though.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Irish. Dude. Can't we just lose in the playoffs before you concede. Jesus.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    FUCK YEAH BABY! Tommie Harris sighting.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    I'm tired of hearing about how good our receivers and Olsen are Doc.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Agree with both of you.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    If you can't appreciate this game, you don't like football.
    This is great.
    The smurfs are playing pretty damn well, the D-line is playing great and embarrassing that rookie RT again, and Forte has looked good.
    This is fun. Let's get the damn playoffs started!

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    +1, the NFL is trying to get rid of these kinds of games. But gotta love a great defensive effort.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    So we take away defensive play-calling from Lovie and leave him with the red flag and stuff like timeouts. He still manages to kill us. And what the hell was calling a timeout for? It was a three man front, where's the fire?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Maybe he doesn't want to play the G-Men again?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Nice to see both the O and D reverting to early season form. Well, at least the latter.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Martz is calling those 7 step drops again. He's gotta mix it up more to keep that play action credible.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Garza looked like a 1st class idiot on that last play...

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Mike Martz is being a real idiot by not running the ball at all.

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    We can't run it up the middle. We'd be too one dimensional running outside all day. This just goes back to our roster and Angelo. I'll be real eager to hear from any WR/Angelo defenders after we allow the Packers into the playoffs ...

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Nobody's saying that. I haven't heard it. Don't forget too, the Packers have a pretty good secondary, and defense in general.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Yep, and we don't want to see that defense again.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Butter don't melt in the cold!

    Nice play, Harris!

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Tommie Harris sighting

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    I love that, oh god I LOVE IT!

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Great stop D !!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Ok Martz, unleash the Krakken. No more pussy footing around.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    At least get Shabba out there, Scrappy is th eonly one playing ball.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Yes Danny!!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Fucking Forest Manning. Nice.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    God I love our returners. This has been a fun game to watch. I feared it would not be.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    For the love of God, send out some receivers Mike!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    WHY ARE THEY NOT RUNNING THE BALL!!!??????!!!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    What the....

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    WHO THE HELL CALLED A TIMEOUT?

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Well done Lovie - cool timeout!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Lovie Smith is a dumb ass!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    run the ball

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    This is how you lose a game that is very winnable.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    If we lose this 7-3 I will puke rocks.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Well, you don't have to worry about that possibility unless the league office takes away their field goal.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I get it, they're just trying not to show the good plays we have in the book...right...if not we ain't ready for the playoffs!

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    Plays? Our receivers SUCK.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Once again, opposing teams completing passes in our secondaries sweet spot all day long.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    well gents the Pack will be in the playoffs... the d can only hold Rodgers for so long... the offense has not done anything but look like FOOLS...

  • In reply to underway:

    We're letting one of the only teams that can stop us getting to the superbowl. Maybe that's a good thing. Losing superbowls sucks, and with an offense like ours that's exactly what would happen.

  • In reply to underway:

    This game may just come down the timeout our fearless leader called by mistake. Cause that's what it was, a friggin huge mistake.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Rookies shouldn't make that 'mistake'...

  • In reply to underway:

    Rogers is going for the knockout punch

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    He swung and missed Murph. That call cost them that series. Nice stop by Jennings there.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Sure glad I was wrong.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Forte up the middle. Someone explain to that to me.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Regardless of the outcome of this game, Aaron Rodgers has looked more Cutlerish than Cutler for the majority of this game

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Then how come they are winning?

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    because he got 20% of his Aaron Rodgers mojo back during the end of the third quarter

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Too bad we didn't get that 2nd field goal in that first half. I hate to see a game like this going into overtime. If we score, I say go for 2.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    thats what I said....great minds

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Seriously embarrassed.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    embarrassing folks...

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    F F F F F F. Our defense should be proud. Our offense should be shamed.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    valiant effort against a team with their backs to the wall

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Losing this game will come back to haunt us. Mark my words...

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    I fear you are right. I hope you are not.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    cutler was throwing lousy all day!!!! Threw behind everyone...WTF

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    The main culprit was play-calling. It's fixable.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    No. A crappy o-line, a QB that can't read defenses and sub-par receivers are not fixable.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Well, either Martz didn't want to show anything or we played like dog fuck!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Well, on the bright side, our defense looked very good. And you know the Packer fans had unsettled bowels up until that pick. Trolls should be here soon...

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I think this was a great game for the Bears (well... as great as a loss can be). The Packers are a dangerous playoff team and we played with them all four quarters.

    Cutler and the rest of the offense need to play better, and this game will provide that motivation. The O-line will be watching this tape for 2 weeks and will come back stronger. The D will be pumped - and that was important after the last few efforts.

    I'm hoping this bye week will be just like our regular season bye. We'll come back pumped and ready to play.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Cutler seemed off-target all day.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Yeah, but he took responsibility for that in the press conference. He'll improve... both in the short term and over the next few seasons.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    No time. We need to win it this year or the next, the defense will be retired. The only good players on the o-line will be retired. We'll need a new roster- and look who we have picking our roster ...

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    The only solace I can find is that I would rather face the pack again instead of that monster front four of NY.

  • In reply to underway:

    Rex threw for 336 and 2 td's The front four hasnt been monstrous lately.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Just after the Packers took them to the woodshed.

  • In reply to underway:

    We scored three points against them man.

    Gotta give the Cheese props. They wanted it worse that our WR's wanted it. Lovie, I really wish you hadn't of meddled and called that time out. Nobody got hurt, we didn't give the cheese an easy victory and we head into the playoffs with plenty of work to do. If the cheese come to Chicago in about a month, our offense better have their act together.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Well at least I must tip my hat to Lovie for keeping the starters in the whole game. The Bears tried to win and fell short. The defense did great!!! Our offensive play calling was questionable and our overall offensive play stunk.

  • In reply to Reichwolff:

    You may retract the doff of the hat to Lovie, he probably cost us the game with that incredible timeout. That's a minimum of two games he's cost us on two single brain-cramps. he really is a mong, and sadly, making the playoffs keeps him in a job when we're one and done. Urlacher can play TE right? Manning and Jennings at WR. Briggs at QB, we could win it all ...

    I think that the Chiefs may have issues, as Charlie Weis is leaving as OC there and going to UF-Gainesville, because he can't stand that his former lackey is now the HC and they can't get along.

    Weis may pitch a fucktard set of play calls into the mix just to fuck with the Chiefs organization on his way out the door. If anybody was capable of that, it's Weis.

    Rogers is definitely a better QB than Cutty. Both D's played a great game. They won the special teams battle. Pretty simple why we lost. The Cheese gave us limburger field position most of the day.

    Looks like the Saint will have to play Seattle in Seattle. My money will still be on the Saints.

    We could have and should have won today with a few minor adjustments, but still I felt good about our Defense. Bad day for the offense but we still made it close. If we stayed with the run I think we would have scored at least twice more, even if they were FGs.

    No matter. BEAR DOWN!

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Oh yeah, thank you, Tim Tebow.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I actually picked Tebow on one of my teams that was desperate for a QB for a championship - I figured if Lloyd gets a couple then somebody has to be throwing it to him. I'd love to get Orton back on the roster but I guess there's no way that can happen. Any advances on Josh McDaniels for worst HC ever?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    See Irish, I've been telling everyone here for months, Tebow is a gamer. The Bears should seriously consider working out a deal to trade Cutty for him and Orton.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    For those of you having a hard time finding a sense of humor today, the post above was a poor attempt at humor.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Too bad Josh McDaniels took you seriously.
    He's actually way outperforming what I thought he was capable of, statistically. I haven't had a chance to watch him play live yet.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Enough with the 3rd and not enough pass completions already. I counted at least 4 3rd down completions where Cutty dumped the ball off to a receiver a couple of yards shy of the 1st down marker and our smurfs were unable to push through a lone tackler for the first down. It's obvious we need a big strong receiver. Heck, look at Jennings and Driver. Both those guys took 2 or 3 defenders to bring them down when they came across the middle for the quick slants.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Forte takes some of those responsibilities. So does Bennett. But that's not the identity of our recieving corpse, which is built for speed. Its also not what we're looking for in a top reciever. Most folks on here are looking for a jump ball specialist, not a bruiser.

    Then that makes Driver and Jenning's bruisers. I'll take just one of the above thank you.

    GP...I really think you have something w/diabetes and the snickers...Cutty just plays like shit on nights..damn he has to grow up and figure it out.

    Martzy...sounds like he stuck his head in the sand in the third...WTF? Why do we even have Double Deuce with not running rock...

    D as usual keeps us in the game...piss on you O for not getting your business done.. again is that not your job? three points really?

    Wow are we back with Bob Avellini? at least he handed to WP and let him take it on his shoulders.

    Was our ST that bad? going to have to look back on the game, but read someone felt the Fudgers ST was better OUCH!

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    Roboto - Cutler made some great plays with his feet and avoided a couple of sacks and made plays out of them. The main reasons we lost are that Martz shit the bed for 5 series in a row and had the run to pass ratio was 20:40 instead of balanced. We started a drive on the Packers 14 and got neither a field goal nor a touchdown out of it. We started another drive at the 50 and got negative 20 yards before punting. D was great but a couple of key drops by WR's and Olsen coupled with some truly shitty playcalling and an ill advised time out and voila!, 10-3 loss. Hard fought game and relatively healthy coming out of the game injury wise.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    and their punter played lights out. Dropped 2 within the 5 and a couple within the 20.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    +1
    He nailed every punt. He killed us on punts.

    Okay. Calming down now, and just watching Roy break down the Jets game This GB game was like the Anti-Jets-game. Defense giving it all up. The offense in-sync. But Cutler had all day to throw it against the Jets becasue there was zero pass rush. So who has a pass rush other than the Packers that's in the playoffs. Glad the Giants are gone. We creamed the Eagles. we have a chance against teams with no pass rush - so anyone seen much of the Saints or Falcons recently? What's their rush like? One would *hope* we have the advantage over the Fudgers in Soldier field.

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    The play clock was down to 1 and Lovehammer took a time out. The play went on and we got a first down, but it was ruled that the wistle blew before the snap, voiding the first down play. Lovie thought we were going to get a delay of game, but the snap came out just in time. I can't fault Lovie for this. He was trying to avoid a delay of game penalty.

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    thanks coach

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    In Pre-season and early regular, we had several screen plays drawn up for Taylor. He seems to have faded in favor of off tackle sweeps/traps to Forte.

    As we saw on Lovie's brain fart timeout, Taylor can be a decent release valve, swingback.

    Knox is too small/weak to handle strong shutdown corners, who bump him off his slants and who he can't get past. He's a true slot guy playing the #1, because we don't have a Jennings class wide out. We were smart to let Berrian hit the road, but we need a great 1 guy. Brady can get by without one, but we don't have Brady. We have Cutler, capable of holding the ball way too long and getting all of his slant throws knocked down at the LOS.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Happy Birthday MB! I'm with you and Doc. This game shocked me by how hard they played. BTW I believe everyone needs to get off of LDL - JUST THIS TIME ONLY - they showed repeatedly on TV how it was Martz calling the TO and Lovie is hearing it in his headset and calls it - it was Martz, LDL was just the messenger (as it should be on ALL DECISIONS, sorry Lovie).

    Defense was incredible but for a couple of busted plays, I disagree that the ST was so bad, but the MVP of the game was the Packers punter. He was amazing. And apparently well recognized as such.

    Disagree with anyone who thinks Cutty wasn't to blame for much of this loss - he sucked yesterday. Had the Bad Cutty Post-Concussion look on his face, especially later. That one INT he threw in the end zone, you just knew that was a INT the second it left his hand - it was like his brain had already left the building on that throw. The only offensive player worse than Cutty was Knox, who had I believe his worst game this year. He couldn't do ANYTHING, couldn't get open, couldn't catch the ball, NOTHING. It did look like the loss of Bennett made a huge difference, maybe to Cutler's psyche, even as Sheed was having the come-back game of a lifetime. Kudos to the Pack's all-pro secondary, they took the #1 and #2 receivers completely out of the game. Just don't know why Martz didn't respond to that fact.

    The good news is D and ST are ready, Bennett will be back, and post-bye Cutler hasn't yet had two bad games in a row. I thought the Oline was decent yesterday, it was Cutty missing throws, making blind throws in his attempts to look off the D, and holding the ball too long.

    But overall it was a great effort and we truly had nothing to play for. Let's watch the other WEAKER teams beat the crap out of each other next weekend, while we rest, game plan, and practice.

    BEARS NFC NORTH CHAMPIONS! Wearing the hat to prove it (thanks brother!)! STILL CHAMPIONS AFTER YESTERDAY!!!!!

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Woodson, Rod, Said that at 7-9 they deserved to be in the playoffs because they 'won' their division. Hmmm.

    If you put a blind badger dying of emphysema into the olympic 100 metres men's final, and then shot all of the men in the legs, and then by some chance the badger traveled along its lane without going outside the lane boundaries and won the race, does it deserve the gold medal?

    We'll preface that by saying there would be a loophole allowing sick badgers compete in the 100 metre men's final for some unspecified reason.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Two weeks is plenty of time to gameplan for the Saints. If we can rattle Brees and force him to make mistakes, we can beat them. Brees has more INT's than Cutler if i'm not mistaken.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Can Earl Bennett really mean that much to our offense?

    The Pack's 3-4 all-Woodson blitzes all the time really fucked us over. The Pack got some shit calls, like the roughing the passer on Pep, but Baluga whale seemed determined to keep the Pack ahead in penalties with his piss poor RT play against Izzy.

    I dunno, all I am hoping for is that we didn't want to show some cards we are holding in the post-season, but I don't think so. We have to step it way way way up on O, or we are one and done.

    If we go one and done - I can't help but wonder how Lovie's deal get structured for next year.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Yeah, Baluga is awful. He was awful the first game this year, and now Izzy abused him, just like Peppers did to him in week 1.
    I hope they move him to LT next year as planned.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    I really think the bears played this very much like a pre-season game, not to lose it but not really caring if they won. Let me give the reasons.
    Mike Martz was down on the field. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe he is almost always in the box upstairs to get a better view of the defense. It tells me he was just trying out plays.
    Also i noticed they stopped running the ball when they were moderetely successful at it early on. That tells me they wanted to work on the passing game (since that is their weak spot on offense) before the playoffs begin.
    Don't get me wrong I think they showed up and played but i don't think they really schemed against this team. I thought it would be a far worse loss for the Bears than that just because their was nothing to lose in this game. After that game the Packers do not scare me, especially at home would be the next time we would see them. I personally fear playing Philly again far more. This game actually gave me more confidence in this team than I've had in awhile.

    (Shrug). Frankly, it was more competitve than I expected.

    I was most disappointed in Cutler's decision making today. The Redzone pick was just "Bad Jay" and on at least a couple of those sacks he held the ball too long.

    Other other hand, the defense played very well and the Packers were reminded that they have no running game.

    We would seem to have escaped any major injuries. Any momemntum created by this game, positive OR negative will be moot in 2 weeks.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I concur for the most part.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Couldn't agree more Al. Cutler was disappointing but the defense was far better than I expected. They'll run the ball more in the playoffs. Run blocking looked impressive but pass blocking again showed it's ugly head. I do know that needs to be looked at again these next couple of weeks.

    Solid defensive effort. Martz fucked it up by becoming old Martz in the 3rd quarter and abandoning Forte. Hester must fair catch a fucking ball. Feels pretty shitty to allow the Pack to get into the playoffs but we have a bye and we are in the playoffs so i'm mildly pissed. Solid effort.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Eagles or saints... Just read.

    Want the eagles.

    Could be Eagles, Saints, Seattle or St. Louis at this point.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Rams/Seahawks, Saints, Eagles

    If Saints win, we will play them, if they lose, we will play the lowest highest seed, with the lowest going to Atlanta. Impossible for us to play Green Bay in the Divisional Round.

    We will be preparing for the Saints.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    If the Eagles win, we play them no matter what. The only way for us to get the Saints is if they and Green Bay both win.

    No shit!

    Is that a Saturday or Sunday?

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    100% right on Martz. My son and I were watching the game and trying to were both trying to figure out why Martz decided to stop running.

    So far as 'sheed goes, I agree big time as my earlier post indicates. It may have been better still had Earl been filling that slot )I saw what I did there) as usual.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I agree next game run Forte more but why would they run him ragged in a game that doesn't matter. I know people say the Bears/Packers rivalry is No.1 priority but I care far more about a run to the Super Bowl and not beating the crap out of Forte would be a disgrace. I wish they would have taken him out a little more and run Chester the second half. Martz will run the shit out of the ball first playoff game. This was a tune-up for the pass offense.

  • In reply to jbenton:

    He only rushed 16 times.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I know but they still left him in to go out for passes and such. I want him healthy because as much as I thought Chester would be equal with Forte as far as yardage/talent, it's not even close watching the two run. Forte has regained his strength/speed.

  • In reply to jbenton:

    Yeah, Forte >> Chester

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Rams / Seahawks looks like a bunch of guys playing in a park off Lake Shore Drive - but with uniforms.

  • In reply to jbenton:

    Good point about working on the passing, though. It seems like the only explanation. The Packers really had no answer for Forte (over 6 yards per carry).

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Yeah, I know Martz can be stubborn but when you're running at 6 YPC you don't stop running unless the game just doesn't matter to you. Just very much seemed like a tune-up. My opinion anyways and I could be completely wrong but I've seen this team take monumental strides since the bye and i have trouble believing they would revert to old form when it matters.

  • In reply to jbenton:

    TRAC'S 5 REASONS WE LOST:

    1. Our WR's couldn't get open or failed to make the catches the needed to.
    2. Lovie's timeout more than likely killed a nice drive that probably would have ended in points.
    3. We didn't have as much riding on the game as the Cheese.
    4. I got into a stupid argument with my wife and lost my game day mojo.
    5. Green Bays special teams were better today.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I think #4 was the big one. When the wife kills your Mojo, its hard to come back.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    It's all YOUR FAULT, Trac! Murph confirms!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Seriously, #2 and #5.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    #2 was a big issue.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    IRISH'S RANTS THAT HAVEN'T CHANGED SINCE LAST YEAR:

    1. Our O-line is *not* improving, it's just ever so slightly less lethal to Cutler than it was before. Only 6 sacks today versus nine against the Giants. Yeah, I guess we are improving.

    2. Our receivers suck. This no longer debatable. Good receivers get open. Period. Knox killed us on drops today, after catching a few pop-ups last week. Send him long or send him home.

    3. Greg Olsen does not produce first round draft pick numbers. He caught a couple in the dying minutes.

    4. Lovie is a Mongo and has cost us at least two games with his mongo-ness. That's home field #1 seed stupidity.

    5. As always. This all comes back to Angelo. Our offensive roster is pure muck. Cutler might be something one day if he ever learns to read defenses (Orton rocked at that) and stop making dumb throws. Funnily enough, I think Orton wins us that game today. He would have dealt with #21.

    * Our great and holy defense has gotten Lovie and Angelo's heads off the chopping blocks. And for what? A one and done playoff trip?

    * Maranelli may be our only good coach. Martz had a negative impact on that game. Can't really blame Tice for not making diamonds out of coal.

    * And on your #3 Trac. Play to win. Or stay at home. On #4, have you apologised yet? Don't go to sleep on that ....

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Loud and clear Irish, loud and clear on all points.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    #1. AT LEAST three sacks were 100% Cutler's fault. Also, Jay stares down receivers WAAAAAY too much.

    #2. As I have been saying since last year, Bennett is our guy. He did not play today, and it showed. Despite the fact that Rasheed was hands-down the best receiver on the Bears today.

    #3. Perhaps, but Olsen's block was the key factor on Forte's longest run of the day. Perhaps Martz could have stuck with what was working?

    #4. The biggest play of the game was Lovie killing the offense (likely on Martz' request) with that time-out. But none of you REALLY think that time out would have been called had it been a Packers pick-6 on the play, do you?

    #5. 100% agree. In fact told my son exactly the same thing about the beginning of the 4th quarter. Orton would have won today. But last week? Not.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Cutler seems to be ignoring Shabba. Whenever he does go to him it's a close call. I don't get that. I'd love to see Bennett, scrappy and Shabba out there, flexing in Hester. Let Knox ride the pine and see that there are consequences. Dez was made invisible after the drop in the endzone (Lions?). Also, Cutler seems to afraid to get rid of it now, fearing an interception - somebody should tell him that Row J is an acceptable place to put it.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Brett Favre has announced he's retired {sound of one man coughing amongst a silent audience in a large auditorium}.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Woot Woot!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Your first point makes your football retarded Irish...How can you not see the improvement in the O-line? Half of the sacks Cutler took were his own fault for hanging onto the ball all day. The run game is on fire.

    They say life begins at 40 ... but I'm guessing it was a 40 year old that came up with that ....

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Did anyone hear your favorite pundit and mine (Dilfer) on Jim Rome today? He says the Bears and Falcons are 'posers' and won't make it past their first playoff games.

    I was so pissed I didn't hear anything after that.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    I definitely think he's spot on with the Falcons and when the Bears flub the dub on O, we fit in that category as well. Don't know about you guys but I was pretty certain that Cutler would end that game with a pick based on how our O had been firing duds most of the day. That performance reminded me of how the Bears O performed in the first Lions game. I didn't see a whole bunch of improvement from the 1st game of the season when compared to yesterday's output. Even the run game yielded spotty results and we never seemed to be in sync. That pick by Tillman should have resulted in a touchdown. Game, set, match was decided right then.

  • In reply to jbenton:

    Just a quick reminder that the Bears knocked out Favre and gave him a concussion on the last play of his career. That still feels good. This was a great game and I agree with a few posts above that the Bears didn't do a lot of crazy stuff on offense. The defense played a hell of a game and looks like they are in playoff form.

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    Today, you saw a Super Bowl defense from the Bears. Against the Jets, you saw a Super Bowl offense.

    May we get them both at the same time for three games. Just three.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Could be much, much, much worse guys. The G-Strings and the Bucs both finished 10-6 and missed the playoffs. That would have really sucked.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    I also think the stupid Diabetes thing is back. Cold + Dark = Bad Cutty.

    No amount of Snickers seems to be able to cure it. I hope we ask to play the Saints in a noon game. I honestly believe it makes a big, big difference in Cutler.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. He gets that 'stoned' look and nothing turns out right.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Lovie looked totally stoned when he called that timeout.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Peanut deserves an award.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    For what? Finally getting a pick? I was glad to see him not slip and fall trying to cover Jennings today. I hope he can continue the success he had today into the playoffs.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    That's the killer. As long as we can avoid teams with a pass rush. We need to work out the 3-4 defense thing, and that comes dopwn to talent on the o-line. It's just not there. You can have the best teacher in the world teaching trigonometry to a room full of short-bus riders ....

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    Watching Woo-woo-Wooten bury Farve's head into the hard ice bowl turf made the whole 2010 campaign worth watching. Just that one play made the season for me.

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    I agree that it almost would seem that in the 3rd and 4th qtrs they were using the pass plays to see if they could be successful at it...not ready for primetime yet. So it goes.

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    No and I think we know if the Bears are going to win they're going to do it running the ball. i don't even think Martz would disagree with that. One thing we've learned this year is this offense is not the Greatest Show on Turf, not even close but when they run the ball they are successful.

  • In reply to brandonpurcell:

    Nothing feels good today. Nothing. I'm pissed off bigtime. Can you feel it?

  • In reply to jbenton:

    * Martz is never in the box - not this season.

    * We were not successful running the ball. Everything inside got stuffed. Like every week. Forte only gets yards when he's running outside and away from our offensive line.

    * The first and last sentences are quite frankly incredible. If we played the game not really caring if we won, then Lovie should be fired and the spot. And if that game gave you more confidence in the team when we looked like the worst offense int he world, then ... I don't know what to say to that that's polite.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Yeah, 110 yards on 20 carries is wildly unsuccessful.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Up the middle we are worse than useless. If we can't make the hard yards then we're screwed. No FB doesn't help. Those DL boys for GB are really big, granted. When do we get someone like that to bring on?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Irish, are you Jason McKee?

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Hve not read a single post here since well before the game started, but I have to say that despite the outcome, that was one hell of a good football game. Definitely deserving of sports' greatest rivalry.

    I put it down to two plays. The timeout that took away the Bears' conversion on 3rd and 15 (which you *know* would have not been seen had it been a pick-6 the other way) and the 41 yard punt return by the Packers.

    Kudos to my Bears for PLAYING THE FUCKING GAME!!

    And, for all you calling for resting the starters, no one got hurt.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Roach and Wright got hurt. Not starters, I guess, but we definitely ran the risk of losing more valuable pieces. Thankfully it didn't happen.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Against that D - with Woodson blitzing all the time, the response is to keep Manu and Forte into block, and get a 1-on-1 on a edge fly route and put it out there. The only player we seem to have capable of going up and getting it is Shabba, and he is a shell of last year's Shabba.

    Manu sucks. REally not much more to say, other than we paid that prick to block and he sucks at it.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    The players who fell down the most for the Bears were Knox and Cutler. Jay had plaenty of plays where he had all day and could not do anything with the ball.

    On the plus side, Forte and 'sheed were pretty damn strong and the O-line showed yet another week of improvement. Yeah, the Pack had some pressure, but ya'll need to remember that their defense is the second best in the NFC.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Of course, you;re right on the Manu thing. He better not be on the roster next year (assuming we HAVE football, that is)

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    I hope the Pack dispatch the Saints in the wildcard and then go on to take out the Falcons. That would be an epic run and result in one for the ages.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Don't the Packers play Philly next week?

  • In reply to jbenton:

    Yes, they do. Saints go to Seattle.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Playoff predictions:
    Saints beat the West Representative
    Packers beat the Eagles (who are not looking good right now)

    Jets over Chiefs
    Ravens over Colts
    (both of those are close calls)

    Then...
    Bears beat the Saints
    Packers take the Falcons

    Pats over Jets
    Steelers over Ravens
    (those are two exciting games)

    Then...
    Bears take the Saints
    Steelers take the Pats

    And the Bears play Pittsburgh in a smash mouth Superbowl.
    Bears 23
    Steelers 20

  • In reply to mottystone:

    You have the Bears beating the Saints twice. I mean, I know the Big Easy is down this year, but that seems cruel and unusual.

    (we know what you meant - no way do the Pack beat the Falcons in the ATL)

  • In reply to gpldan:

    New Bear better stick to the literature. LOL

  • In reply to gpldan:

    And if they do, no way the Bears beat the Packers in the NFC title game.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    I disagree. The Bears at home against the Packers, I say the Bears win by at least 7. Bears defense shut them down without having to send anybody but the fromt four and still dominated. The offense is going to run the ball much more in the playoffs.

  • In reply to jbenton:

    Well we sure as shit can't pass it.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I think the Pack have shown that they can beat anybody. (And Detroit beating the Pack just showed how much better the Lions have gotten).

    But I have to admit, I'd rather play the Saints twice than the Pack in the NFC Championship. I hope that's the epic "season finale" that this week was supposed to be. Not that this week was bad.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    I'm with you. That was what makes this rivalry way bigger than any of we fans. Down to the last play of the game.

  • In reply to phrozentundra:

    Happy Birthday, MB, in case I forget tomorrow. You got me by two years.

    I am reminded of a good one liner I heard on Last Comic Standing last season. "I knew I was getting old when I teabagged the toilet water".

    On a positive note MB. Jenny Garp in The World According to Garp, reminds one of her little cock-knocker grandchildren (Walt I think) that getting old isn't all that bad. All those memories to look back on. Presuming of course you have some nice memories.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    (best in the game) Jim Beam can't spell fer shit.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Pretty conservative offensive game-plan and you guys are shocked...
    Really.

    This was a good tune-up for the playoffs and no, Irish, our receivers don't suck and Olsen doesn't suck. Olsen made several big first down catches, blocked the shit out of GB linebackers on several long Forte runs and generally played well. Knox had a bad game...against one of the best secondaries we have faced all year.
    Manu whiffing on Woodson was ugly but Woodson is the defending DPOTY. Guess what, he's good. Real good.
    Can we at least play a round in the playoffs before you guys jump off a fucking cliff?
    Good grief. You know we won the division, not the Packers, right?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Im on the cliff, I'm not jumping off. I say we win our first playoff game! Guarenteeeed

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I'm very interested to find out what happened to Wright and Roach. I don't think Pisa would've played if Roach didn't ding up his shoulder...and we had to see Bullocks play. Yech.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Our receivers DO suck and Olsen only got involved when the game was over. Scrappy got open a lot, why couldn't Knox? Because Knox can't get open. He can run really fast and that's it. How many balls did he drop today? Anyone?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    When was the game over??? It was a one score game with the Bears running a methodical short game drive.
    Knox DID have a shit game. So? He also has scored three TDs in the two weeks prior. You want to fucking cut him or what?
    Jumpin' Jiminy Cricket, Irish.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Some things didn't look crisp today, to say the least. You guys have already pointed out the bad and the good. And I'm pissed we lost. But I'll tell you what. I'm proud of our team today. With nothing really to play for, we put 4 quarters of a hard fought effort together. The players weren't satisfied with their season. They had to try to beat the Packers first. They weren't looking at two weeks down the road. All they had in their sights was the Green Bay Packers. They played a helluva game and some things didn't go right, but credit needs to go Green Bay as well. They have a very good defense. They have a great offense, even if it is somewhat one dimensional. They had everything to play for. And we had ourselves a winnable ball game in the end. We came up short. That'll happen sometimes. We all know we're not the GREATEST team to ever play, but every team in the playoffs has a weakness. Even New England. We have some too. In the playoffs, anything is possible and make no mistake about it. Our team IS dangerous. Two weeks can't go by fast enough.

    Continue Bearing Down.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Well said Doc. I completely agree.

  • In reply to mikev:

    Me too. Aside from the final score, it was a great and fun game.

  • In reply to mikev:

    Just have to say that IrishSweetness nails it in his analysis of the OL and receiving core. When you only give up 10 points to the Packers AT Lambeau you need to win the game.

    I also am bemused by those who think that, once the playoffs start, we'll be running consistently and getting the ball more to Forte. It's clear to me that, whatever Martz says to the contrary, he views Forte's success at running the ball as largely instrumental for the purposes of the passing game. Once Forte was having some success, Martz started going to him *less*, as if he were thinking, "Well, we've established the run, now we can pass, pass, pass." He should have gotten at least 10 more touches in that game.

    Finally, I'm still not a fan of the seven-step drop for Cutler (even though it worked out a few times against the Jets). The offensive formula that works is a heavy dose of the run with quick play actions and three and five-step drops hitting crossing routes, with an occasional deeper ball to the seam.

    I don't think that Martz thinks this is true. And since he knows a fuck more about football than I do I suppose I should give him the benefit of the doubt. Still, it makes me less than optimistic about our playoff chances.

  • In reply to jj320:

    With our recievers and Jay's arm, those 7 step drops probably look absolutely amazing in practice. The problem is that our O-line is inconsistent (especially on the edges) on the long ball. With Jay taking a 7 step, he puts the most pressure on the edge possible and needs the most time. Especially in a day like yesterday with such good coverage from GB, the pass rush is just getting too much time. Martz is right in theory, but the players aren't able to execute in practice.

  • In reply to jj320:

    Glad I bemuse you.

  • In reply to mikev:

    I am bummed but surviving this morning. I think that really strange time out was the killer yesterday. A real momentum killer.

    I am glad we have a bye week next week.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Many of you have mentioned the diabetes/plays poorly at night thing as perhaps the reason Jay was off today. I hope that is not the case. Today's game started at 3:15 Central time. The Super Bowl starts at 5:30 Central.

  • In reply to mikev:

    That superbowl seems an awfully long way away after managing three points today.

  • In reply to mikev:

    Just gotta win 2 games to get there Irish. I'm not willing to call it a season yet.

    At this time last year we were all sitting around trying to find some reason to be interested in the playoffs. This is better.

  • In reply to mikev:

    It's indoors and Texas stadium is lit up like a television set.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    +1. The Pack showed up to play and their defense doesn't get nearly enough credit.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Yeah, Irish is in one of his moods. It will pass. I hope.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Offensively, the writing was on the wall for offense early in the game. We needed a pick six or a KR to win that one. I wouldn't cut Knox, but I would bench him to let him know that you can't drop that many balls and you need to learn separation.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Yes, lets bench our best receiver for the playoffs. Maybe we should start your practice squad guy too...

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    Asiata at wide-out would be a sight to see, with his man boobs flapping in the breeze...

  • In reply to BearsChick:

    Can we fire Manu before the end of the game? I'm done.

    Receivers. O-line. Lovie. Olsen. Suck.

    This is who we are. Great defense. Crappy offensive roster. Fire Angelo.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I suscribe that 100%!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Its the O-line that's not getting it done today. Nothing we didn't know before. Mannu hasn't earned his money and we need to draft help up front.

    But we're still in it. Some good calls by Martz and Cutler and we can win this thing.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    we are going to get the ball back with plenty of time. There's no excuse for us not to tie this game. Absolutely no excuse.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Is their punter going to the pro bowl?

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Their punter wins the game for them. Really impressed! Wow!

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    come on Knox, make a play

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Knox is off today. Dang.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Running out of time here...

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Well, the D looks ready for the playoffs. The O, not so much.

    We don't move the ball here, both the D & O starters should get a rest.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    When we can't get field position, we are done. Tough to watch.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    every time he throws to Olsen I cringe.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Well, if we go to OT, do we play the starters? And careful if you say no, Irish might kill you where you stand.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Take a shot Martz.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    If we score on this drive, go for 2 fuck it.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Totally agree.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    I actually like the clock management. We can finish the game on this drive, or force into OT. Either way, 2 timeouts and 60 yards to go at the 40 is a pretty good place to be.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    PLEASE TAKE A SHOT MARTZ....NOW!!! ITS OPEN, SHIT!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Certainly havent stretched the field today, thats for sure. Feels like the 2001 bears.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Well, I'm going to go ahead and defend the Bears here, since no one else seems to wan to. The D has been amazing, against a desperate team that was projected to but up at least 20, and with the O incapable of staying on the field. Forte has run wild, but Martz got away from him. We've shot ourselves in the foot a few times, and had some bad calls go against us, and we're still in this game.

    I don't think all is doom and gloom for the playoffs. Remember what the Packers did to the Giants last week?

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    I'm with you on that.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    No one's slagging off the D man. Carrying the offense as the McCaskeys seem to like.

    If we pull this off I will be amazed. Please don't get injured, Cutty.

    run, run, pass, punt. you heard it here.

    Now Cutler. You think you're John Elway? Prove it. This is when the greats are great. Length of the field, son. Methinks interception.

    Our real O are back! C'mon mister Jay "INT Sack Me" Cutler! C'mon!!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Love and jay caused this

  • In reply to Wisbearfan:

    Receivers are to blame, not Jay. No one's getting open.

  • In reply to Wisbearfan:

    Things are starting to look vaguely familiar.

  • In reply to Wisbearfan:

    Cutler so late on his reads

  • In reply to Wisbearfan:

    This is not the crisp Bears I was hoping to see... this is reminiscent of the pre bye week Bears...

  • In reply to Wisbearfan:

    12 minutes left in the 4th, you just gave up 7 and NOW they run on 1st down?

  • In reply to Wisbearfan:

    Johnny Knox gettin mugged out there on a regular basis.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Playoff Football... he betta get used to it and fight back...

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Every week Murph. Every week.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    How is there nobody on Lee - was there anyone on this board that did not see playaction TD coming?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Pino didnt see it.. he bit hard...

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Damn.

    Damn Damn Damn.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    The Bears don't deserve to win with the offensive play calling in the 2nd half. Pathetic Mr. Martz.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    EFFING FIRE LOVIE!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Why doesn't he just get rid of the ball? Why?

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I cant stand watching the backpeddling from under center on 3rd and 15! Come on give Jay a shot.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    That's on you Lovie you f%$#

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Lovie - for real?

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    JEEBUS.... 2 turnovers and nothing... we dont want to knock the packers out of the playoffs.. Dfense is doing what is required to win this game...

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Why is Julius Peppers chasing Greg Jennings?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    This is not a good job by Martz today!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    We had 3 and he threw it away........Aaron can't win close game we needed that 3

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Why ya make that throw Jay?

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    That kind of beat yourself football better not show it's head in the playoffs. Come on Bears, play smart.

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Anyone think we need a big jump-ball receiver now? Sit smurf Knox for Shabba NOW.

    Joe buck: Let's go back to that hold on Garza ...
    [Camera switches to a picture of Garza with some dude in a headlock. Classic]

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    I love that Jay Cutler is our QB, but sometimes he just pisses me off.

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    looks like that concussion is still in effect.

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Time for Hester to do his thing.

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Well, you take the peanut catch, the Cutler pick, and this stop, and we basically got a bit of field position for the punt.

    Except the bad bounce just puts it on the 20. So the whole thing is a wash.

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    3 and OUT!

    I LOVE that we're actually playing for the win!

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    As we should Doc.

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Wash or not.

    I LOVE ME SOME PEANUT. In fact, I'm wearing his jersey now.

    GO BEARS!!!!

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    someone tell me why we stopped running?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    PEEAAAAAAANUUUUTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    PEANUT!!!

  • In reply to mikev:

    SHit, my feed went down. Wha happen?

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    I'll take it as a make up call for Peppers.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Good trade!

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Damn

  • In reply to mottystone:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • In reply to mottystone:

    I knew he floated that one the second it left his hands. Damn.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Bad throw.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    Peanut taketh and Cutty giveth away...

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Well, there's the "bullshit" call the Packer fans will claim cost them the game. Who cares though, right? Fuck Yes!

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Peanut made a diving fingertip interception and then ran it back like Peyton Manning. It was sweet.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Thanks Troy - take another concussion pill.

  • In reply to mikev:

    That's my Bears. Lets do this!!!!!!!!!!

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    They're important to the players. Sometimes there's contract money on the line - sometimes a lot of contract money. So you need to respect that as a coach.

    Plus, you have to keep the competitive culture in the locker room. Milestones are part of that too.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    If the refs give the Pack the ball back then Pro wrestling is legit....

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    +1

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Pretty uninspiring, but a lead at halftime, no matter how small, beats the alternative.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Great half by Forte, Davis, Cutty, and the D (especially Briggs).

    Our Starters: 3

    Their Starters: 0

    I'd love to see the effort continue, but I don't see it happening with our starters.

    BENCH DOWN!

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Yeah, we already lost Roach and Wright's return is questionable with injuries. Time to shut the starters down, I think. Let's go subs!

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Jimmy Johnson calling for the starters to sit for the Bears.

    Eli Manning is dreadful. I'd love to face that offense, but not their D-line. Nothing can sway from me from pantsing the Packers in their own house though - I just want to see their fans faces.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    No way Bears should bench starters, beat the Packers and knock them out of the playoffs. You don't roll over for the Packers, I don't care what anybody says. No matter what the Bears do in the post-season, sweeping the Divisiona and knocking out the Packers automatically makes it a great one.

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    +100

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I can't stress enough, that if it was any other team I wouldn't care. BUT NOT THE PACKERS!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'll be happy when the game ends and the score is Bears 21 Packers 0

    Then I'll be happy.

    WIN THIS GAME!!!

    nuff said.

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    Absolutely. The Packers are probably the best team in it (other than us) if we let them in. Death. Murder. Concussion at least.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    It's not that the Packers are great, it's just the rivalry. I have more respect for the rivalry than almost anything else in the NFL. Beat the Packers, number 1 goal.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Shithouse for you Olsen.

    Aikman: 7 games this season he's been held to one catch or less, he's not as good as I've been hearin'....

    Fucking tell me about it Troy. And you can throw in Hester and Knox on that too. Scrappy is keeping us in this game all on his own with Forte.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    How tall does Cutler think Davis is, including vertical leap?

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    How bout THAT play by Tillman?!

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    We don't have any other receivers that can get open apart from Davis. At least we have the same old ammo for the off-season.

    1. O-line.
    2. Olsen.
    3. Wide receivers

    All Suck.

    GO PEANUT !!! FUCKING D! YES!!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Tillman is a better receiver than any of our receivers - what a catch!

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    Let the subs beat them.

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    OK OK it can't be 21...bad math...how about 24.

    BEAT THE PACK and SEND THEM HOME...DONE!

    BEAR DOWN!!!

  • In reply to Reichwolff:

    I'll take 3-0

  • In reply to Reichwolff:

    Are you fucking kidding me Olsen? Reslly?

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    looks like the starters are still in... for now.

  • In reply to EVILteddie:

    Offensive starters!

    You're my boy, Lovie!

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Are we happy???

    I am happy. Go BEARS!!!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Wow, Maranelli let them have it right there - see Izzy? Have at them, Yoda!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    Sweet. Officials trying to hand this game to the Packers, and Bears still winning.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    I want the Bears to win just to hear Fres go after Jeff.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    ha. +1

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Don't let us down Fres. I'll be here all week anyways.

  • In reply to mottystone:

    common boys, don't leave these points on the table. And how about that no call? Awesome.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    If by "awesome" you mean "complete and utter horseshit", you're absolutely right.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    jingle bells at 5A. Nice irish.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I was giving the better half a nice peaceful sleep upstairs in the master (she's got a cough) while I was on baby watch downstairs. But she got kicked back downstairs at 4.15 a.m. Packers game baby, move.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    honestly, when are the refs going to be in our camp? It's getting fucking ridiculous.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Even the announcers quit sucking up to say it was a poor call.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Dezzy sighting.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    IZZY!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    this thing on?

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Congrats to Matty Forte, as he joins Sweetness as the Bears only 1000/500 men.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    And to Pep, first DE to make the pro bowl since Mr. Dent.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Irish, what time is it there? 10 hrs ahead?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells baby!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Watching Jingle bells at 5.10 in the morning baby!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    common

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Why the hell doesn't Cutler get it?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Where's this improved o-line I've been hearing all about? Dammit.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    So far I'm pretty bummed about the following:
    1) Bears can't tackle the receivers without being dragged for 4 or 5 yards.
    2) Someone needs to tell Cutler the object is to throw to a receiver that is in first down territory on 3rd downs. Jeez.
    3) Our pass rush is not so good today.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    there you go trac

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Concussion please!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Agreed- they don't actually 'stop' people right away.

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    DJ SMURF !! And we know what happens when we win the turnover game!

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    Dude, Doc. It's

    DJ Moooooooore!!!!

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    I would love to see a 250yd rushing performance by Mr. Forte & Co. today. Wouldn't that be something?

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    They're certainly trying to get Forte over 1000 as quick as possible.

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    The Defense is hitting hard.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Question: Which Bear is best?
    Answer: Chicago Bear

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    Indy?

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Yes, I moved back to Fishers, IN and got married in November :) Freezing but happy with the hubby.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    I'll need a game feed to watch it live. Stupid Indianapolis game will be showing here. Bleh.

  • In reply to CrispieQueen:

    Fresno has been struck by Atrocitus and his Red Lantern --- Larfleez told me he will return as soon as the Bears score this afternoon.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    That is hilarious!

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Glad this doesn't hit home with any of our Bears brethren.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    sjvl...........at the Parents house today going to watch the game on Internet!!!.............had to show dad the Blog...
    Pop laughed so hard about your top #21 damn near gagged himself to death laughing so hard!!! I think we may have a knew blogger.

    THAT WAS FUNNY SHIT!!!!

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Funny to watch the "proving ground" image on the front page of NFL.com 3 out of 4 of those coaches are getting absolutely mauled, and the fourth hasn't taken the field.

    New England and Pittsburgh are sending a message, that's going to be a fun AFC championship. I'd love to see Indianapolis do the same, but they just don't have the juice this year.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    I shouldn't speak too soon. The Jets aren't taking it too easy either.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    That is hysterical. I just copied it out and sent it to a fanatical Packer friend of mine...

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Packers' prize for a win today is a trip to Philly next week.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Then we most certainly need the win today. I hate rooting for the Peckers.
