  • First, the birdhouse link is broken.
    Second, I like the panoramic photos. Cool

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I did find the color scheme and the rather prominent fleur de lis on the birdhouse website a little disconcerting.

    Is this some kind of conspiracy?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    hee hee

  • Fixed the Birdhouse link.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    This had to be on your list of:

    100 things I cant envision ever saying on my blog

  • In reply to Dmband:


    How does it work anyway? You put some bling and a PS3 in the birdhouse and the Bears receivers fly into the little hole or what?

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    thanks for the link.....I spend many mornings and evenings watching birds eat from the backyard feeders.....this is a place my wife will use.....she will enjoy upgrading the birds living quarters.....we just watched 3 night crowned herons hatch and grow up in one of our trees on the canal......

  • Damn it: http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/bears/ct-spt-0916-bits-bears-chicago--20110916,0,1880781.story

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Anybody watch "Turning Point" last night on Versus? Looks like it will be a quality weekly show...since it's an NFL Films production, you get some great shots and quite a bit of mic'd up conversation that you don't get on Sundays. I liked it.
    Will be watching the Hoodie doc over lunch today...looking forward to it, for sure.

    Yeah, saw that about Barber. Sunday will be a good time for Bell to show us what he has in the RZ when it counts.
    It also looks like we could see a whole lot more of Pimphat, with Pringles sliding over to SS (which seems like it should be his natural position anyway).

    There was alot of good discussion on the last thread.

    I think what is going to be the deciding factor is that New Orleans played abysmally in the red zone last week. But I'll be damn surprised if they do anything other than spread it out and throw it inside the 20.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Thanks for the heads up on the new show Brownie. I just added the show to my DVR list, I'll check it out later.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Can this guy ever be healthy? Jeez..

  • In reply to Artoo:

    I hope so erik... he's an animal and I love what he adds to our offense. I was really hoping to have him back for this game, but as long as he's back next week I'll be fine.

    I honestly want one of our guys... maybe clutts if not barber to run woodson over in a big way. What a cheap punk ass bitch. I totally respect him for his skills, but the guy is just a cheap pos of a football player.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I want Barber to knock the steroids out of Matthew.

  • In reply to Artoo:


  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:


  • In reply to MB30SD:


  • In reply to Artoo:

    I'm with you Erik. I'd like to see that too. Maybe Barber can carry some scissors in his sock and after he smashes roid’s facemask, he takes out the scissors from his sock and cuts a HUGE chunk out of 52's gay locks (sorry johnny, I know that visual hurts you)... holds it up to the crowd and then throws it on the ground and stomps on it.


    (I was trying to find the scene where the chick with her air caught in the door gets the chop, but this is much much funnier... although not related to our discussion one bit)

  • In reply to MB30SD:


    Although it would explain quite a bit.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    he came to a new team and maybe he would have handled himself differently if he was still back in dallas; or it was his second year with us......

    do you think maybe he just wanted to showhis new team and us the fans that he was happy to be here and gave a bit too much before his body was ready for that level of intensity.

    bell needs to feel this type of intensity so it may pay off later with him knowing more of what he has to do to be up to the challenge.....

    he may not see much action when marion returns

  • Bears

  • birdhouse link not working for me

  • Film room might be gone but click on Wednesday's edition for a great piece. Interesting stuff from Roy.


  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Does he not do videos anymore?

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Or fast forward to 57:00 (yes, fifty seven minutes...) for the Saints preview/scouting report. Damn, he makes beer look tasty ....

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    You are correct.

  • Hey Doc, I think our Defense is built that way.

    We let them dink and dunk because if they hold on to the ball any longer they will get harassed. If they do dink and dunk, they are taught to strip it away and we are a very good team at that.

    When we beat the Packers.. who caused that fumble again?

    Last week...who made Turner fumble?

    Atlanta got Julio for one reason only, to open up the passing lanes deep and our defense takes that away because of the pressure of our front four.

    Now, I know Melton is not that good but he shows some promise and so does Wooten. There are two people who make this defense work.

    Urlacher and Peppers. If either of them go down or out, this defense will not work. Example? Look at when we have both of them and when we didn't. 08,09, and some of those years where Urlacher was our in the early years.

    Other defenses have more than two players that make a defense even more scary but ours is just two players.

    Same thing on offense. Two players, Cutler and Forte. Take them out and how does the offense work?

    So I guess that is where we get the lucky part...we kinda rely on two players to win us games on both sides of the balls and when others step up we play even better.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    Obviously I know that, Artoo. Our defense IS built that way. That's my point. My question is, do you think this is the reason the bears are so often slighted? Because of people's inability or refusal to understand the philosophy of the cover 2.

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    People do not believe in it since no runs it

  • Irish... you gotta stop posting on dead threads mang, it makes it that much harder to follow. Jesus. Besides, I owe you one now for the handbag comment.

    How in thee fuck did you end up in pattayayaya anyway?

    And Erik, it's because you're young and special. (sorry, it was hard to keep a straight face during that last part)

    It's impossible to know tone through the interweb lad, otherwise you'd instantly know when I was just messing with you. Just assume it's most of the time.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Lmao I know but had to say something back after you said Just you, Erik.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    I agree with Mb.

    Irish some of the funniest things you say are on the old threads but no one sees them unless we go back.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    It ain't dead til' I've finished pinching a loaf off on it, Artoo ....

    Listening to Roy here, I think I'll back the Bears again. That'll be twice today.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:


  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    your loafs mat be a little dried up even by the time i get to em.....bet inside that sticky steamy smell of funny still reaks from them

    thats one of the reasons i kept coming to this sight over the time it has existed

    I never knew what kind of shit i would step in

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Ironically, MBHAP called me king of the dead threads, but it got good, eh?

    Erik, Roy got threatened by YT for using film clips without permission. He jsut does a talking head spot on his website, but it's great - watching it right now, it's about two hours long !

    He's talking here about Zach Straiff who was apparently so bad at RT they had to bring in an extra tackle AND a tight end to help out.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    You ARE king of the dead threads. I don't know if it's because you're across the International Date Line or what, but holy crap.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    And Straiff is going to get strafed by Pep. I expect this to be Peppers break-out sack game.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I see how you did that..

    and you mean last game wasn't?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Nah, that was Melton's - I expect Pep to go nuts this game. I think last game gave the Saints alot more to worry about on the interior AND we get Woot-woot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n79jSzKA0L8)
    back this game.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Irish...because of you I am a "Dead Thread Head"

  • Bears

    I'm tempted to pick Atlanta since they are at home against a still shaky Eagles offense, but I just think Matty Ice is going to have another tough week against that all star secondary playing man coverage. The Falcons proved last week they don't have a solid short game, and that will mean the game. Plus, if they can't contain Cutler, they aren't going to contain Vick either.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    Seattle was even attractive with a two TD start. Don't Seattle have a good/great run defense? Pittsburgh just got tore a new one, and now they're missing Willie Colon? 1/12 no spread - really?

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    The Steelers aren't going to suck two weeks in a row, and have a nasty streak that might let them run up the score. Seattle is Seattle (and their QB is Tavaris Jackson). Plus its on the road.

    I just think there's two big of a risk that the Steelers make an example of the Hawks this week.

  • Hey MBP, here you go: http://www.nfl.com/videos/new-england-patriots and http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-network-total-access/09000d5d82246a0a/A-Football-Life-Belichick-s-preparation

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'm not going to dog on LDL...HOWEVER, it is hard to picture him giving that kind of speech.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Hilarious hearing Brady's voice crack when he's getting the "just step into it" talk...

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Hahahaha... I didn't want to be the one (agaaaaain) to do it. I thought the exact same thing. Just worlds apart.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Really liked this show last night. Trying to fill the void caused by no Hard Knocks this year.

  • In reply to Dmband:

    can you imagine a bears hard knocks... it would just be like watching a documentary about a football team. No drama, no real reality TV value, no ridiculous shit going on all the time.

    We would all love it, but everyone else would be bored out of their minds. I'm picturing an interview with lovie and people falling asleep.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Which is why, I think some people on this blog have stated before, the national media hates on them as hard as they do...no real drama allowed in LDL's clubhouse.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Plus that would violate Lovie's philosphy on keeping everything, including his cereal of choice, a secret.

  • In reply to Dmband:

    My guess is lucky charms.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    That sounds like quite the walk on the wild side for Lovie. I was thinking more like something involving lots of fiber...what are those wheat biscuit things?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    As far as im concerned there is only one cereal in the world.

    Cinnamon. Toast. Crunch.

    And no, Im not 10.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I love the scenes (last night and hard knocks) regarding personell decisions. I always find it interesting to see the dynamic between the owner and the coach. Belichick looked like an annoyed teenager whos Mom finds a joint in one of those interactions with Kraft.

    This is also why the scenes in Moneyball regarding the trade deadline are some of the best of the movie.

  • In reply to Dmband:

    Yeah, saw the Belichick piece - loved it.

    I liked a lot of things about him, more than I thought I would.

    1) I love that he curses, like when he tells a shit talking Ravens player, "Are you fucking kidding me? look at the score board, then talk to me..."

    2) He tears up a bit when talking about his time with Coughlin, Romeo, and Parcells. BTW, how great is that coaching staff (hopefully ours will be as legendary)

    3) The interaction with Brady is very intriguing.

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    #1 on your list was my favorite part.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    bore em all the to the crown

  • Baltimore
    Green Bay

  • Well the Experts/Pundits are calling this a "bad spot' for the Bears and picking New Orleans..

    Renown Cutler/Bear-Hater Mark Schlereth picks the Saints "big".

    That's all good as far as I'm concerned.

    Caveat Emptor, though: Yes, The Saints are 0 for their last 3 vs. The Bears but A) Those games were all in Soldier Field and B) Up until last week the Bears had never sacked Matty Ryan.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    we must be doing something right scheming for them

    maybe we haven't had this level of talent going against the saints
    this has got to change the nature of time we hold the ball
    brees will have to be efficient with his chances; we should keep him on the sidelines longer this game

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Well Meg Ryan did get sacked and Lovie's never lost to the Saints - don't see why that should stop not that we've got a bitchin offense and defense and ST.

  • Urlacher's image as team leader, and team Superman, is not a media creation.

  • I found this a pretty interesting read and topic: http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/6972913/how-do-nfl-linemen-drop-weight

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Good find...interesting peek behind the curtain of retirement for those guys.

  • Cowboys

  • Bears

  • haven't heard much talk from Olin this week. This would be a great time to have a good audio mike on the game so we could hear the smack talk during the game. I always thought they should have adult network NFL games so we can hear all the F-bombs and smack talk, and with no stupid TV game play-by-play analysts -- lame asses in suits -- to hear.
    WTF with the Barbarian, c'mon man and join the party we need you big time. So far the 3 amigos from cow-town have been hurt a lot.

  • In reply to GuinnessPlease:

    that's what happens when you start getting old guinny... trust me on that.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    You ain't lyin MB!

  • In reply to GuinnessPlease:

    +1 on the "Adult NFL Network"

    I've thought the same damn thing for years. Would love to hear Ray Lewis talk shit to the Ravens, or Pepp. He seems quiet, but I heard him in the huddle once say, 'You guys do what you're going to do, I'm just going to go own this guy' something or other. Dang, trying to find the vid.

    But more of this please


  • In reply to 4ever85:

    Oh, here's Pepp mic'd


    Correction. Pepp in the Seahawk's game "You guys do what you're going to do, I'm getting ready to eat this fool".

    What say you, some Peanut?


  • In reply to 4ever85:

    fucking awesome, great find. Like you said 85, I want a whole game like that. and and and... Madden-style... you can use your remote to pick which miced guy you want to listen to... ok, I'm getting a head of myself.

    That shit gets me pumped though. damn.

    (still can't believe lach let that little bitch rodgers trip him on that INT. Should have stood on his fucking head... or throwing hand)

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'd settle for alot more of the full field view that they only occasionally show on long passes. It is damn near impossible to pick up all the things that are really going on during a single snap when you're either getting a tight sideline view of the play or the behind the QB shot...

  • In reply to GuinnessPlease:

    it would be great to get a feel for how things are down there on both sides of the ball; while they are setting assignments....this one especially with olin "the Mole" playin for the enemy

    and after the play:
    I want the trash ....the whole trash....and nothin but the trash talk

  • If you guys didn't see this, it is quite funny...


  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    doc... are you a closet chickens fan????

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Uh, hell no. I'm a public NFL/running back fan. Love those kind of backs and those kinds of runs. Plus, Marshawn Lynch is funny.

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    funny like a clown?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Nope. Funny like yo mama!

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:


  • In reply to Artoo:

    ...oh, and yours too Erik.

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    oh wow. Common doc... that was uncalled for, especially because of what happened this week. So let's just get off moms...

    ...cause I just got off yours biatch!

  • Raves, Seachickens, Bears.

    DBB Auction league got me my third win for last weekend making me 3-0 in my leagues. Hopefully the good luck continues. Call me a homer for benching Brees and starting Cutler but I have a feeling it will work out just fine! Espescially since Brees wont last the whole game.

  • Bears, Bengals, Browns.... The killer B's pick.

  • This is why the players love them some Lovie. He may not be the best play caller but he seems genuinely concerned for his players.


  • +1. I've had my gripes with Lovie, but I love to see this kind of familial environment. Nice job, Lovie.

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    yeah you do... you have like 10 fucking kids


  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I think you should permanently change your handle to, BASTARD.

  • Bears

  • HAHAHAHAHAHA. Check this out. Lazy Saints fans:


  • In reply to Dmband:


    How fucking hilarious would it be if the sign showed up in the stands at the game and the dudes who stole it got on TV and were all fired up about it... until the cops show up. I wouldn't be shocked to be honest, people are dumb asses.

    btw, I wouldn't worry about it teach... that sign will only serve as a sore reminder of your team's stomping by said bears by Sunday night anyway.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Someone's going to have a hilarious story to tell. I want answers.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Also, did you catch this line: "Maloney spent her lunch break Friday driving around the neighborhood in hopes of spotting the banner that is likely too large to hang inside any room."

    First of all, I do feel bad for the kids. Second of all, im concerned about the quality of education. Did you see the pic. It could fit in basically any room. And it also folds up for easy transport/storage.

  • In reply to Dmband:

    noooo, it can't fit through any door fully unfurled and stretched out.

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    Ouch Murph,


  • "Every opportunity I get, I treasure," said defensive end Nick Reed, who spent last season out of football wondering what he might be doing with the rest of his life. "I watch all the film I can. I work my ass off every rep I get. Every day is a like a game day to me.

    and that is why you made the Chicago Bears. Keep it up Nick and keep that fucking motor going. Now that woots is back you do your shit on specials and make every play.

    bear down.

    brees dead.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    love that kid. zero attitude. zero expectations. all ass kicking.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Reed is def my rook fav of the 2011, edging Bear Jew and Sanzensausage.

    I'm a sucker for the under-dog - that's why I own all the Rockys

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    technically he was only the underdog in pt.1 and 2. Then he was the champ and defended his title multiple times.

    Part 2 makes me cry every single time i watch it. Stallone played that character in pt 1 and 2 to perfection.


    Brees fucking dead

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    I think technically you're right, but we all know Apollo Creed, Clubber Lang, and Drago were all faster, stronger, meaner and more skilled than Rocky, but Rocky had more guts! (and later, Rocky was just older than every opponent).

    Insert Bear analogy here.

    More man-teary - Mickey dying or Spoc dying?

    Tough call.

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    The scene that always gets me teary eyed is when Momma allows the Waterboy to go play dat foosball.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    All Adam Sandler movies make me cry.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Sorry, but Rocky was definitely an underdog in the rematch with Lang, the fight with Drago, the street fight with Gunn, and the fight in Rocky VI against the reigning champ. Love me some Rocky.

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    my favorite scene is when he is poundin the meat
    when i was a yout I did the same thing

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    We all pounded the meat 'bare ... I remember when I first got my hands on a dentists surgical glove and I'd just seen Logan's run. I went upstairs, got all comfy ..... oh wait ....mkay ...oh right. See the Bears' game last night?

    you may end up on the IR with Roy

    No i didn,t see the game...There is alot of shit going down at the P.O. this week that has me in the biggest funk of my whole carreer. I hope things get better this sunday 'cause these creeps in Washington have me in a system of a down
    I am ready to drop out of this cruel F_D up society
    I am from the 60's and I wasn't raised to believe in this phony shit being passed off as life

    sorry for angry sentiment I gotta get a grip

    I don't like going into gameday feeling like everything is fallin off the shelves

    shit I gotta go out and work for these a___holes who want to downgrade my experience....it is hard leaving the house right now

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Shit man. Just keep on keepin' on. It's all you can do.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    that article was encouraging......these new bears are hungry...and they have a great work ethic

    when I heard about clunk workin out before the game and then running through the wistle hittin anyhting in site....thats the kind of spirit that lights up the joint

  • bears

  • BradBiggs #Bears will be without SS Chris Harris, RG Lance Louis and RB Marion Barber Sunday at #Saints

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Shite, LL and Barber are luxuries, but the Hit Man is nigh close to being a necessity, esp against Breesus. He may be slow, but he's always where he's supposed to be; he not only makes tackles, but destroys ppl properly, and makes wrs think twice about sitting in that zone; imagine, waiting for that ball to come, and hearing footsteps nearing fast behind you that are either Major Penis or the Hitman. Scary.

    However, the rumor mill has it that POY (Pimp of the Year) came in to replace, not Major, but Harris, so this line-up of Major at SS and Pimpster at FS may be a sneak preview into 2012 lineup.

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    Harris was out of position a shit load last season.

    Speak on it.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Ain't that the thing. Harris is lost in coverage, but tackles well. Pringles can be good on coverage, but can't tackle.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    They'll have ringside seats for the murder. I'm so pumped. Love all the love for the Browns too. Would be nicer to have Harris out there actually making tackles unlike Pringles, and having a specimen like Barber in the backfield, but we'll need them for the Fudgers.

  • Hmmm...does this mean we might see shooter at safety?

  • Texans

  • Really don't like Harris being out. Hopefully it doesn't matter cause we rip off Brees' disgusting face mole in the first quarter.

    Turns out he's only probable...so nonstory. Anyway we also are playing a backup rg so I don't think that's much of an excuse.

    Despite not playing this Sunday, RW thinks Great Dane should carry his pads.

    Wonder how much he was fined by goodell

  • Schlereth thinks they'll put 31 on our D??!?!

    Hate that douche.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Yes, but who is a bigger douche?

    A. Schlereth
    B. Dilfer
    C. Mariotti
    D. John Edward


  • In reply to 4ever85:


    I'm gonna still go with Mariotti. Beating your girlfriend up puts you in that special class.

    Edwards goes in the same pile as Newt Gingrich, guys who fuck their mistress because the wife has cancer. Newt is somewhat worse because he divorces his wife on her deathbed.

    Dilfer, he's an idiot with a head that looks like a penis.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Be fair to Mariotti. He never hit anyone. He's a shit writer and a jerk but that case had very little to do with him. He got run by an LA based druggie broad.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    GP, while out working today, I listened to a one hour interview with Mariotti on the radio. I guess he has a new book out. The whole interview was ripping on the Tribune Company, the Sun Times, Reinsdorff, and how his girlfriend was a drunk who beat him up all the time. He was the victim. She was basically a drunk whore who was after his money, and the whole escapade cost him $500,000 dollars from ESPN. His daughters love him, therefore he is a good person. According to him, people don't like him because he tells the truth the way he sees it. Throughout the interview he keeps mentioning that sports is all about business now, and how he's "forced" to talk about stupid, irrelevant shit. He's an imbecile and delusional. He thinks the sports reporter is more important than the sports he covers. First time I heard him talk in about 5 years, and my opinion of him has not changed.

    Nah, you're both wrong. My personal fave is Al Gorleoni. Has anybody seen his latest video. Jeez, this guy has really lost his mind.

    It's still a tough call. Can we get Warren Moon in there? Wrapping a phone cord around your wife's neck has a certain cachet ...

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    Different roles, but I guess douchebaggery transcends.

    I don't get much exposure to c and d, so it's a dog fight between the first two idiots. Has to be b... not only is he a total buffoon, but as you noted... he looks like a penis.

    Does anyone out there keep track of all these 'expert' predictions? Would anyone who is consistently wrong even get fired? Why do GMs and sports writers get free passes?

  • As a football fan, the Belichick doc really is excellent stuff.
    I don't have to like the Pats, but I grudgingly like Belichick quite a bit after that.

  • First, I want to say there were a lot of great, insightful posts on the last thread. Thanks to all for the insight.
    One of my favorite parts of the Falcons game was the start of the third quarter. They had some big plays and moved 87 yards on their first drive of the second half. Jennnings stopped a TD run, which was clutch. They moved right down the field, and could have made it a 6 point game. On first and goal, the Bears D stuffs Turner for a loss on 1st and goal, Peanut makes a great play to break up a slant, and the newbie Reed reads a play perfectly just like he did later in the game. That drive could have been a huge momentum changer and made it a one score game., but the Bears come back with a 92 yard touchdown drive. A 92 yard TD drive! The Bears came out with 3 straight runs to Forte for a 1st down. 2 plays later, Forte has a big run to bring it out close to midfield, and then Hester almost takes it to the house. Bears go up 23-6. Then the Urlacher return for a TD on the next drive. That was some great football. Let's bring on the Saints.
    Side notes - I think Forte led all backs in total yards last week. That's impressive.
    Atlanta's OC pulled a Martz last week by not running the ball enough.
    Most of us were hating on Lovie before the start of the season last year, including myself. He's done a great job since then with 3 former head coaches on his staff. That is not an easy job. Players are now held accountable, and that's a good thing.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    absolutely, on that goal line stand......that had to be hard takin a seat on the bench after that
    it removes a bit o their heart

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    and it forced them to veer from the run

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Mario Addison played a part in that Okoye sack. I just watched a replay in slow motion, and he took out the guard. Marinelli has some crazy shit going on regarding the D-line.

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Plus we know they won't get any hard yards off us!

  • Bears, Ravens, Raiders

  • Saints.... DEAD!

    wish I had stolen that sign from those poor saints fan orphans, and had it hanging across every one of my mancave walls right now.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB, saw that young linebacker you posted on the other thread, Vinny Buttfuck or whatever. Yeah, I like his animosity and anger, harness that and he could carry the spirit of Butkus in him. Did he throw his shoe at somebody?

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Yeah man... hes an angry beast. L.blount style.

    And no, that was the dude he smacked down's shoe (wow, rough sentence)

    and Redskins

  • Bucs



    Geaux Saints!

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    still trying to figure out why you come here man. It's just strange.

  • Let's win one for my Grandma, who's been a Bears fan for 65 years! I guarantee she will be nervous as hell on Sunday. At some point during the game she will have 3 cigarettes lit at the same time. She absolutely hates the Packers. I love her.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    You mean before the game?

    I am pretty sure you can't smoke at the game.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    technology Erik... I think grandma's got a flatscreen at home.

  • Is there any doubt that the Bears are going to the Big Dance if the Bears go 3-0? See it, see the ball, be the ball.

  • Belly Cheat documentary - 'A football life'


  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    I do need it explained to me however why Jon Bon Jovi, Mr. New Jersey himself, is in part 1 at a Pats practice ... and also why his music is being played in the background - not of the video - but actually being played at the practice over a PA system.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Bon Jovi is not Mr. New Jersey. Bruce Springsteen is. He's actually more a Philly guy and he's a Belichick buddy.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Gah! Only five parts posted on the dude's site, sorry. He's from Uzbekistan, so he did his best. Looked like a good documentary, but can't say I'm dying to saee more of Bellycheat. Classless, just not a nice man, or one who carries himself as a legendary coach. A prrening prick in fact.

    Hold the front page. Total Access - Packers v Panthers preview. Joe Theisshole has just called A-Rodge the greatest passer ever. At throwing the ball, he's the greatest ever. Hello? See the Saints game last week Joe? What a schmo. Go Panthers.

    Did you actually watch the doc, Irish?

    No. He's never watched me.

    Billick/Sharpe actually pick the Bears this week. Harper and Rogers get called out. I actually hope they start.

    Joe Eyebrows picking the Saints means I'll back them twice.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    thanks for posting that.. I missed it because I playing call of duty black ops.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    I thought Black Ops sucked slightly? MW2 was excellent though.

  • Have you guys seen this?

    Go to the selection "ESPN Fantasy Draft"

    Watching Schlereth get choked is strangely schadenfreude.

    watched that asshole last night AGAIN say the saints are going to crush the bears and will win by at LEAST 14.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Awesome channel!

  • Bears +6.5
    Bills -4
    Redskins -4

  • Sorry I missed last week. Give me the Bears, Broncos and Texans

    butkus number is ......
    i am thinking brian will be lights out

  • Madden 2012 on All-Pro with the latest rosters, I played alot of DT as Toe or AA or Melton, and tried to push Brees and collapse the pocket.

    I had a hell of a time on O, I had to rely heavily on the run, I couldn't get a deep ball completed. I ended up losing in 10m quarters, 14-12, all I could score was FG. All-Pro level is tough, the LBs have magic speed and cutting up zones is hard hard hard.

    Cutler threw 4 pics, or rather I threw them.

    Hope the real team does better than I did tomorrow.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I did bitch slap Kreutz several times and sacked Brees 5 times.

  • you know I am reading about our loss to the saints tomorrow and all the xperts say something about a blitzing defense as a key to their win

    would our 2 tight ends be a factor against this type of d strategy; because they are bigger.?

    by this I mean blocking....
    that score by spaeth....was it on a blitz?

    i think some dinkin and dunken to them and make them turn back up field to run em down.....

    use it like a run from a 1 or 2 step drop....

  • just answered my question ...found matt bowen's column on beating the blitz on a saints thread

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Hope they do blitz 'Bare, I trust Cutty to find Forte, Spaeth or Davis when they do. Lots of big holes to exploit.

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Here's Roy's :


    If you've got an hour and 45 to spare (!) or you can stick him on in the background (no visuals other than him drinkin' beer and showingDrunkntailgater's walk to the game,I reccomend listening to /watching his great one man show (wednesday edition). I don't know how he does it for that long a time, just talks and talks and keeps talking in an interesting and insightful way about the Bears.

  • Bears
    Panthers (that's right)

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    Ten points head start is a lot to give anyone in the NFL. The Seahawks have like 12 on the Steelers? Didn't their QB just throw an NFL rookie record number of yards on opening day? Doesn't their run defense rock? Didn't the Steelers stink ? Betting the spreads, a Bears/Panthers/Seahawks triplet would give you a great run for your money .....

  • The Trib's 'experts' all seem to respect the Saint's defense and ability to create pressure, but not the Bears' ability to do the same, when we've actually demonstrated such ability already this year and the Saints have not. Only McLure and Ready to name and shame ......

    Brad Biggs 1-0
    The Saints face a difficult task minus wide receiver Marques Colston, but they probably will be patient with their rushing attack, and the defense presents a formidable challenge.

    Saints 28, Bears 23.

    Matt Bowen 1-0
    The Saints' pressure defense will get to quarterback Jay Cutler and the Bears offense with turnovers being the difference inside the dome down in New Orleans.

    Saints 24, Bears 20.

    David Haugh 0-1
    The Bears will match the Saints emotionally, but that won't be enough. The Saints are banged up but at home and gave Packers all they could handle. Who dat? John Kasay with winning FG.

    Saints 31, Bears 30.

    Madden '12 0-1
    In a simulated game run by EA Sports for the Tribune, Drew Brees passed for 345 yards and two touchdowns. Jay Cutler threw one TD pass (a 4-yarder to Devin Hester) and two interceptions.

    Saints 28, Bears 20.

    Vaughn McClure 1-0
    Don't be surprised to see the same possessed Brian Urlacher we saw in that Arizona game five years ago. His mother's death will be a rallying point for the team as a whole.

    Bears 31, Saints 24.

    Dan McNeil 1-0
    Without Marques Colston and Will Smith, New Orleans can't run away and hide. The Bears match up well enough to hang around, but I can't see the Saints falling to 0-2.

    Saints 27, Bears 23.

    Fred Mitchell 0-1
    The difference could come in the Bears' inspired defense. Saints QB Drew Brees is great on quick-release passes so Bears linebackers will be on high alert.

    Bears 27, Saints 20.

    Mike Mulligan 1-0
    This is a tough spot — on the road, in a dome, against a blitzing opponent with extra time to prepare. Can the Bears score enough to keep up?

    Saints 27, Bears 19.

    Dan Pompei 0-1
    If the Bears play as well as last Sunday, they will win. But it's tough to do that against an explosive offense and an aggressive defense in a hostile environment.

    Saints 30, Bears 27.
