I'll be updating with thoughts using the Twitter widget. Don't be surprised if my updates start to seem a bit messy by the fourth quarter.
Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Twitter
First to say I am actually happy to be watching a football game one more time this season, but hopefully not this year.
Is there a game today?
My disdain for the Steeler QB literally has me rooting for the one team I can't fathom rooting for. I guess that's why God invented money. To make rooting for these assholes easier.
ha ha. I still can't root for the Fudge. Some are magnanimous, I am not. I'm actually having a really hard time thinking of in/famous historical figures who would be on the Steelers and Fudge that would make me root for The Pack.
If Hitler were the qb for the Steelers and IF Lincoln were the qb for the Pack, then maybe, maybe, I would root for them to win.
Well, hello - this is the "soonest" I've ever signed in.
Car stuck in snow?
Get a Dom Capers Rug to get traction on those wheeels.
The ratings for "Toddlers and Tiaras" will be way down in Green Bay.
Is it possible for both teams to loose? Please?
Aghhhhhhhhhhr I made one of my most hated typos, "loose" =/= "lose"
Driver, MCL sprain, guaranteed.
So far, (M)Ad Men of Madison Ave. have shown mostly self-referential, parodies of their previous "work" - all rubbish.
Gotta like the VW ad with the little Darth Vader kid.
Loved that one.
That facemask penalty on the Cheese was 100% pure BS. It's becoming obvious the NFL doesn't want a run away game. We're pawns I tell you, just lousy pawns.
One of the worst Super Bowl calls of all time. How can you blow that call.
That penalty on trumont Williams was ripe. What an idiot. Do these guys not realize they are playing in the SB?
That holding call to open the second half was not a gem either.
Yo, any of you clowns still out there?
I can't live through a year of shit talking from Packers fans. Fuck the Packers! Go Steelers.
You're gonna hear it even if they lose. I'm old school. Like to see the North well represented in the SB.
Can you say momentum shift!
I started the game impartial but I couldn't help it I was drawn to root against the Packers. I just can't bring myself to root for them.
I just think it would be such an injustice to see Big Ben raise the Lombardi trophy.
Thats why this Super Bowl game seems so wrong I can't get behind either team. Although I could get behind Fergie.
Rothlesberger looks like shit in this game. He has made about 4-5 really bad throws.
If his career gets ended tonight then I guess I wouldn't mind it if the Steelers won.
Yeah, I wish the Packer receivers had of played that bad against us.
Laughing my ass off, that band sucks. ha, ha, ha.
Jerrah is a bonehead. They figured this out ON GAMEDAY???
... And 95% of Americans did not even notice...
What's that say Shady? Most American don't even notice. How do you screw up THE NATIONAL ANTHEM in the Super Bowl.
Most Americans don't realize we have an asshat in the ................ Oh,never mind.
These announcers kill me.
Aikman and Buck - absolute paragons of sports broadcasting!
Aaron Rogers. My hero. At least we almost beat the Super Bowl Champs with our third string qb
Just Kidding sj. I saw this all the way after the Pack systematically beat the 1,2 and 3 seeds to get to the big dance. Jeff wanted our backups on the field wearing tu tu's in week 17. I knew how dangerous the Cheese were and knew we blew our chance to knock them out of the playoffs.
Did that really just fucking happen?????? I don't know what I feel more right now, embarrassed or ashamed. We have to hear this shit for a whole year now. Damnit.........Damnit!!!!!!!!!
thousands of women are safe in Wisconsin tonight. At least for a couple of months.
I'm ready for next year right now. When does camp start? When is the draft?
When will they settle the CBA?
probably within about 2 months
Should have been the Bears
i love Donald Drivers heart and i'm happy for him but why are the Packer fans such fucking cocksucking douchebags. Like the kid you just needed to punch growing up. You just fucking needed to. I can't wait for these fags to show up here. Instead of reveling with friends or other pack fans, they will be here being their usual gay selves.
How fucking sad is that? It would never occur to me to do some shit like that, win or lose.
An absolutely abhorrent end to a pretty great season. I am ill.
Can't say any more tonight.
Credit where credit is due.
Packer defense won this game and the NFC Championship.
As it almost always does, it came down to the winners taking care of the ball and the losers coughing it up.
I was entertained.
Sorry, Mike Wallace, there was no P.I. on that last 4th and 5.
You know, Albert? If it weren't for those classless packer trolls we had to endure this season, I would be nothing but congratulatory, if not also a little bit regretful. We could've won against THIS Steeler team. Oh, what could've been...
Congratulations to classy Packer fans everywhere.
I don't mind the Packers having success. Guys like Driver deserve it. It's the cuntbag douche trolls that make EVERYONE hate the Packers. It has nothing to do with the Packers, there are people in this world that just deserve to get fucked up. The beauty of the internet though is that these pussies have an outlet to finally be heard or at least to say something whenever they want without repercussion. The peeps here on this blog come here to talk Bears football because it is fun and is a nice little place to come and relax/talk shop/laugh but then people have to come ruin it and make it a Yahoo Message war.
spot on johnny. didn't even care about the game to be honest, stopped watching after the half and had to see the outcome on CNN.
Meh, who cares.
I heard the Black Eyed Peas were really boring. I didn't see them. They couldn't have been as bad as The Who last year. Could they?
Have to agree with with other posters. I used to always speak well of Packer fans until the childish jackasses showed up here. After their non-stop douchebaggery I was hoping they would get smoked. Oh well.
I liked almost everything about the show that didn't involve the Pea's music. If they had done an Usher halftime show, or a Slash halftime show, or even a Glee halftime show, I would have enjoyed it more. The Peas just don't do a good job live.
I think the Packers coach is a class act - he sure handled the Fav-Re mess well. I think Rodgers is a very good QB, and he seems to be a pretty good guy too.
I'm not happy they won though. I think it's the douche trolls present and future that make me feel this way.
I know one classy Packers fan, Doc. I sent him congrats earlier. That's about as far as I can go.
That post will fall on deaf ears, Doc. "Classy" fans don't frequent other team's blogs.
The football dieties graced the Wisonsinites last night for having to live in such a redneck and uncivilized area of the country. When your favorite player and wife have the same nickname around town ("the Freezer"), it's only fair to throw them a bone. Today all of them have to go back to their cows, back to the shed to huff glade, back putting babies in their sister's tummies. I sort of understand why they caught this break in the land of karma.
What was the tiebreaker Q and who won the contest?
Don't know because I don't know what Irish answered.
Who will lead the game in tackles? I went with the stats and said Lawrence Timmons.
What will be the total number of points? I said 48, and immediately regretted guessing that low.
What will be the total number of turnovers? I answered 6 - which seemed high at the time.
If Irish answered Charlie Peprah, I'll hand him my checkbook so he can make all my sports bets going forward.
It's too bad the wrong Pep got to hoist the Lombardi.
What a horrible, stupid-ass penalty on that KR by #57...that was a killer.
You are getting ready to start the Superbowl winning drive and you get a personal fucking foul?
And he's CAPTAIN of their special teams.
I'm already looking forward to next year. The packers are pretty stacked so the fucking pressure is on for Angelo to fill in some holes and we will continue to battle for years to come.
My wife summed it up perfectly:
"this one was tough, on one hand you don't want a rapist to win another superbowl and be completely absolved of his multiple rapes and on the other hand the thought of douche bag Green Bay Packer fans being happy is disappointing as well."
No win situation....
She's a keeper!! And absolutely correct.
All is quiet here in Pennsylvania this morning.
The season is a wrap gents. Bears fans should hold thier heads high. We lost to a fine football team that won the SB. 2011 Battle cry, "Beat the Cheese".
I agree...and the NFC North is gonna be awesome next year.
The Bears had a chance to do it this year, we had the defense and special teams..but the offense and some coaching decisions let us down...Lovie and Martz to be exact. Oh well, still a good year!
In my opinion, Jay just picked a bad time to have an off day. He was too excited and overthrowing early, and then after his knee was sprained he underthrew. I'm not blaming Jay tho - had Hanie been #2 we probably win the NFC Championship.
Whether Hanie would have been able to beat the Steelers is another question entirely. Although I will say that Rodgers could have made the Steelers look MUCH worse had his receivers not had so many drops.
Some of my best friends are Packer fans. I watched the game with them and just couldn't bring myself to openly root against them. I realized that it was the idiotic Packer trolls that made me hate the Packers more than I did before. I hope they don't come back because if they do I might just have to go silent.
Or you could just ignore them.
My wife and my in-laws are Packer fans. I grew up watching Forest Gregg and all of his thugs, so I've had a healthy hatred for many many years. Since we have two kids who are young, we ended up watching the game together. I still hate the Pack - but they did everything you need to do. Winning playoff games on the road, battling injuries,etc. I'm just glad the day is over to be honest. Bring on the draft.......
Thing is, the Packers don't really have much on us. No reason for us not to beat them.
agreed, as evidenced by 2 wins by 14 points.
Cangrats to the Packers for a well played game.
Why God WHY??????
Because they are a damn talented team undie. Next year we will have our work cut out for us that's for dang sure.
More good news I just thought of.......This means that Favre is in fact now just a memory. He's dead and buried, because his backup just went Steve Young on his ass. Also, why in the fuck can't we have a Mike Tomlin as our coach? That guy is nothing but hard work, class and super intensity. Love him, hard to root against him.
Because "God" does not, and should not, give a damn about a football game.
I turned off the post game as soon as Jennings went religious.
Gag me with a spoon.
Al, would you like me to use a rather large wooden or stainless Steel one?
Now, now, what would Jebus say?
I guess the only silver lining here(and that is a pretty thinly stretched silver line) is that Kevin Greene now has a ring.
Hey Jeff, did you see how terrible the Packers were in a close game tonight? Blaaaaaaaaaaaah.
I dunno, Trac. Other than Jennings, who I of course knew was going to have a huge game (ugh), the Packers receivers looked like warmed up dog shit.
The Steelers had plenty of time, down by 6pts and the Packers stopped them. Just pointed out how blind Jeff's statement was a few threads back. I really am amazed how so many intelligent Bears fans don't want to see the truth. I think it's one of my responsibilities to sprinkle truth here from time to time. Just keepin it fresh Brownie.
I was impressed that they managed to get any stops after losing Collins, Woodson, and Shields.
Unfortunately, I think that's the only reason they had to hang in there in a close game. Keep those three on the field and Roethlisberger doesn't throw two TDs tonight.
The personal foul on that kick return certainly didn't hurt the Packers chances either.
The only thing I told people between the NFC Championship and last night's game was to not underrate the Packers defense.
Yes I hate them. But they are good.
That is a complete pass.
excuses are being lined up as we speak. if Green Bay loses you know you can expect the usual suspects to bitch, moan, complain, rationalize and in general, act like pussies. woodson...he gone
Wow, Donald Driver quit on his team. Charles Woodson quit on the team. I can't believe those guys cant play through some pain in the biggest game of their life. Ronnie Lott woulda had that leg amputated and half time.
Hate to say it Murph but I totally lost any ounce of respect I had for Ronnie Lott when I read about his rant defending Haley.
I did not read his thing on Haley. I think he was one fine football player though. Maybe he should have just not said anything.
Now this is sad. The Fridge isn't doing so well:
All the comments to that one are sad but true. He's been offerred a lot of help it sounds like... I really hope he takes advantage of it and gets healthy.
Just goes to show you that the players need to do more to take care of themselves. I would love to see a rule that says something "One half of all post-tax income above $1 million per year plus $100,000 shall be held in trust until one year from the date the player retires from the NFL." Nobody can touch it, not agents, not the players, not the NFL... hire someone like Goldman Sachs to handle the NFL Players Retirement Trust and you'll see players in much better shape.
And if that isn't enough... distribute the money over a period of 5 years or the number of years the player played. And the NFL and NFLPA should publish a list of approved financial planners to help avoid fraud, and players should be required to consult with one for at least 1 hour for every $100K in the trust.
He always seemed like a good guy. It makes me sad to see him self destruct like that. I'm not sure money is the answer for him.
The only part of that I don't think is going to laughed out of court is: "NFLPA should publish a list of approved financial planners to help avoid fraud, and players should be required to consult with one for at least 1 hour".
A tip of the cap. Thats all I can muster to Packer fans here in my office, and anywhere I see them. I happen to live and work 5 minutes from the WI/IL border so there are lactose tolerant people everywhere. One brought in a tub of fried CHEESE CURDS to work today as a sign of victory. I will always acknowledge a superbowl champion. This year they simply get a tip of the cap. I digress...
Man!!! It so annoying seeing these dorky packers fan doing the Aaron Rodgers belt move. I live in wi and am avoiding the local news channels for a few weeks.
Aikman and Buck given orders not to discuss Jerry Jones seatgate fiasco (which still didn't buy him the record) nor mention Brett Farve's name during the telecast.
Aikman's announcing was tolerable... except when he started naming Rodger's family members in the first quarter. I'm pretty sure I heard Rodger's sister's name before some of his teammates. Joe Buck was a total waste of space.
I desperately miss John Madden.
Last night is the fucking reason why we should of beating them in Week 17! Some of you who were all for resting players and shit, fuck that. If We did beat them in week 17, it could be us holding the crown. They beat us to get into the playoffs and beat us again to get into the superbowl, which they won. FUCKING EMBARRASSING!
Troy Aikmen was fucking horrible yesterday. All he did was blabber and make a fucking short story for every fucking play almost.
That was a great game. Matthews the "Gaymaker" showed why he should have been the defensive POY instead of Polomalo who got worked by Jennings on that 2nd tuddy.
The Black eyed please, arguably the biggest sell out in the music industry (although I never liked an inkling of their music ever), were attrocious. That was the biggest piece of facsist garbage I have ever witnessed in my life. I felt I was being brain washed into putting on cloths with Christmas tree lights on them and doing the robot or wearing a fake computer hat on my dome.
But, it seems the recipe for success in the biz is to pick 1 white girl, 1 black dude, 1 molotto and 1 half asian half mexican w/o any musical talent and throw them into electrically charged cloths and let them poorly sing songs about getting retarded.
Usher can dance though and Slash has proven him self to rip.
The packers look to have a young nucleus for years to come and I would take Rodgers over all Q's in the league. The niners picking Smith at 1 must be killing them even more today. Hopefully, this will cause the bling squirrel to get off the beach and get to work starting now.
'brainwashed into putting on clothes with Christmas tree lights on them'....... CLASSIC. What was up with the plastic thing on the guy's head?
Next year, if there is one, has to end better than this.
Jerry Angelo with diamonds and Cristal. Yes.
And a grill that says "Lucky." Nice MBP! I meant blind, but bling will do
There's your t-shirt.
Who gives a shit about the halftime show, the commercials, Christina Aguilara, Joe Buck, the Cutler injury comparison, etc. Seriously, who gives a flying fuck about all the bullshit, we have serious fucking problems to address this offseason. You can argue that every position on this team is in shambles. FUCK YOU JERRY ANGELO!
Preach on preacher. Taylor is getting older, but still has fresh legs after hardly being used this year and being a back-up to AP. You already paid big-time the man and will take a huge hit for just releasing him. We saw he can get in at the goal line (with a shitty o-line) even though he hardly got the chance. Martz seemed to forget about the RB screen this year which could have been one of our greatest strength.
That fat slow sack Manofmoohlah should be the one to go. He got paid more than Chester I believe.
So, Martz was responsible for bringing him in and going with Collins. Great job.
Manu came back from knee surgery and proved to be a solid run blocker in the latter half of the season...the same time Forte was killing it. Manu and Olsen stepped up their blocking and it showed. Give the kid another year and see what happens. It will only get better. I would have loved to see Taylor get used properly this year but oh well. Maybe Unga will step up...if we still have him on the roster.
I thought Taylor came on a bit, late in the season.
For sure, he was missed on 3rd downs in the Viking offense.
Wow. I didn't see anyone else miss more blocks than Manofmoohlah and that was the only reason we brought him in. Olsen was 10 times the blocker 86 was. Based on salary, I don't think there was a bigger under-performer on the roster.
So, where are all the "Tweets" challenging Donald Driver and Charles Woodson's manhood?
What? Ohhhhh, I see. They were REALLY hurt because Fox cameras caught Woodson wincing in a sling and Driver in a walking boot.
Fox didn't see Cutler's knee buckle just trying to execute a hand-off so it didn't really happen.
Woodson has a broken clavicle Al. Brees, with the same tear Cutler supposedly had played with it for a full year. The recomendations for recovery immediately after a type 2 mcl tear is to at least brace the knee and rest it. Many docs have confirmed this. Why did Cutler decide to go clubbing and walking around in LA w/o a brace in a mister rodger's sweater and jorts no less instead of following protocol?
Give me SOME credit, Crown.
I KNOW Woodson was injured. As soon as they said "collarbone" and not "shoulder" I just assumed "fracture".
Likewise I don't ACTUALLY disparage Driver and anybody else who got dinged.
I did / do fully disparage the legion TWEETERS and
talking head idiots, led by the likes of Neon Deion and Mo-jo.
That you, apparently, agree with the Tweeters, really disappoints me.
You watched halftime, Crown?
I haven't for years. I didn't even hear about the infamous WARDROBE MALFUNCTION 'til AFTER that game.
I was outside flipping burgers for the main course.
On the OTHER hand, I DID see the National Anthem.
Yo! Christina Aguilera.
A couple of points:
1) Practice, Practice, Practice, little girl.
2) That song you butchered, not only by not knowing the lyrics but your "I'm gonna put my fingerprints all over this" musical (?) interpretation, isn't some bluesy riff you can fake your way thru. It's the National Anthem!
Did you not see how it SHOULD be preformed in the last 2 games from Chicago.?
Your preparation, interpretation and presentation were not only poor, but disrespectful.
Stay in the recording studio, woman, where the audio technicians and engineers who make you what you are can clean up your "work" before it goes on the air.
On the other hand, little lady, you HAVE secured you place in Super Bowl Lore.
The Bears to cut Chester Taylor this offseason?!! Actually that doesn't suprise me.
Source? Big mistake.
The Bears will cut Chester Taylor this offseason, a source tells CSNChicago.com.
Taylor is heading into the second season of a four-year, $12.5 million contract. The Bears already wasted over $6 million in bonuses on Taylor, but he averaged 2.4 yards per carry in 2010. Severely lacking in explosiveness going on age 32, Taylor is an easily-replaced player. The Bears could look to the draft for his replacement behind Matt Forte. Feb. 7 - 8:28 am et
Why a big mistake Crown? He sucks. We signed an aging #2 running back who's played in a dome for the majority of his career, and Jerry threw the fucking kitchen sink at him. We need a bruiser RB behind Forte. I think all of us were just under Jerry's spell at the time because he signed the Peppers, Manu, and Chester at the time. Save the money and move on.
An excellent assessment, Crown. Pop music in general is overwhelmed by people with little to no talent - all the warbling and synthetic distortion of voices is a transparent response to the fact that these "musicians" cannot just hit the pitch when singing.
I predicted exactly this when the root cause of all this garbage started - MTV. The immediate subjugation of how a musical performance SOUNDS to how it LOOKS.
Madden picked the Packers to win it all last September
That makes 7 of the last 8 Super Bowl winners that Madden simulation has gotten right, an insane statistic any way you cut it. Perhaps next year we should have a Madden vs. Viva weekly prediction contest.
I would like to take a quick opportunity to piss on the Steelers.
According to Aikfool and Joe Fuck, the Steelers and Troy P. in particular had drilled and re-drilled the Jennings down the slot play again and again. So much so that Pomagranite-head bit on teh slot move when Jennings ran the out for an easy TD late.
So on 3rd and 10, with the fucking game on the line, the Steelers let jennings take that play up the slot for 30. Game. Over.
Well, that and the personal foul by #57 at the end, biting off 15 for the game ending drive, ensuring that it would fail...
If you were here, GP, I think you would just have to get in line. Methinks their uniforms are more gold today.
I saw that and it was definitely true. Neither team really did anything spectacular. The Packers won with 9 true rushing plays. The Steelers D produced 0 turnovers. Both teams were getting 7+ yard runs pretty frequently, yet neither tried pounding the ball. Stupid special teams play (remember that left hook field goal?). Even Rodgers had a mediocre day by his standards.
The Pack got the job done and good for them and the NFC North, but the game wasn't nearly as exciting as a lot of the playoffs and regular season.
i know, why can't they just saw off woodsons shoulder and tape it up? i hate pussies that can't play through an injury...acting like they are all human-like and shit.
Also, i vote Green Bay as having the absolute gayest hair in the league. Hawk, Chillar, Swain, Matthews, holy shit mang. Our new Canadian had pretty gay hair too until he chopped it.
again..I will repeat myself..."Where does Joe Bucks nose end and Aikfuck's Ass begin"? are they Siamese twins? or what?
I think its called a pushmepullyou lobo.
Green Bay's strategy has been rather simple since Woodson got hurt. Out duel the Steelers. Seems to be working.
That's AT halftime
The Green Bay D without Woodson is a shell of it's former self. I can only equate it to us loosing Urlacher as we did last year. It's that much of an influence not only on what they do but on having a quarterback out there on D that has done and seen it all and can me the right reads and calls. It's beause of that that the Steelers will win this game in spite of their quarterback, Chester the Molester. I'm rooting for a roof collapse at this point. What, too soon???
They are dropping like flies.
I'm getting sooo tired of all the Big Ben love by the pundits. Gag me. I just heard him being interviewed on Sirius and the guy poses the question, "I know how hard you strive at being a role model for these kids, is it hard being a role model?". That's it, I now officially give my blessing for the Cheese to give the Steelers and old fashioned can of woop ass.
Go Super Bowl....I guess.
Doin' the Packer Dance!
Will any of the finalists score any fantasy points at this rate?
