    viva. common now.

  • Not much time left on the Big Bang clock to vote for Jeff

  • Here you go Coach (Crown these would have been for you a few months back): http://www.sportspickle.com/article/7946/your-official-2011-nfl-pickup-lines/page:1

    The brady one is hilarious.

    btw, I didn't see the game, or anything else requiring electricity last night for that matter, but I have this to say. Who cares, the saints will end up shitty again this year and this will just be seen as their first step. The pack did give up 34 right… and almost more?

    Not worried about the fudge, they will implode at some point. That said, don't go to si.com and even look at the football page's slobbery blowjob given by don banks. My god, it's literally disgusting. What a pathetic little sycophant.

    Speaking of which, what the hell happened with that power outage, 30? I saw some stuff on twitter about it last night...

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    2M people without power... some for 11 hrs MBP.

    Freaking crazy. I was ready for the zombie revolution... or sharks with land-based water breathing apparatus... in any case, I'm going to get more weapons today.

    The shark zombie apocalypse is nigh gents!

    He'll pay the 15k fine and Reebok will give him 150K for the publicity. Oh Lance.

    Viva :

    a:) do you get your extended family to constantly refresh DBB and issue them all with login details so that you can get first?

    b) do you DVR project runway or does your little brother just have a wicked sense of humor ?

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    a. No. Coincidental timing.
    b. I do like PR. Amazingly talented and creative people on that show.

  • In reply to Viva:

    what is project runway?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    A show that my wife watches to keep me out of the living room.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Sorry, that's incorrect MBP, you didn't phrase the question correctly...

    ..."WHAT IS..." Ok, back to you Irish....

    'I'll take Italian actors and their wives with huge tits for 600 please Alex'

  • In reply to Viva:

    Viva - I have to ask b/c I didn't leave the room...how did the guy win the challenge with the hair-shirt, dogbed and hamster stuffing skirt?

  • Make your picks boys. And vote!

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    thoughts on the game last night Jeff?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    That was a BS call on Hawk in the endzone. Followed by an asnine decision to put the ball in the hands of a rookie for the ballgame. I had the Pack -4, so I was thrilled, but S. Peyton did not help his club...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I hated it. I know people will say it was fun and all that but I hated it. Nobody could tackle anyone. We know Brees and Rodgers are terrific but it's helpful if the receivers they're throwing to are covered by defensive players.

  • Bears +3
    Pittsburgh +1.5
    New England -7

  • Bears, Giants, and Jets

  • Randall Cobb will be the next dynamic NFC north player.

    Saints D was a let down. Thought they would be better. Poor coverage and tackling all night.
    They're corners were playing way too off the ball.

    That shoulder injury to Tramon Williams looked serious.

    I actually liked the call to Ingram at the end, although I would have gone play action to Graham. The saints just lost the battle of the trenches.

    The Packers are a good team.

  • In reply to Crown:

    Percy Harvin minus the migraines...

  • In reply to Crown:

    And losing Tramond Williams for an extended period of time would spell serious trouble for the Packers.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    even worse, they could lose Tramon Williams for an extended period of time.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    is tramond his twin?

  • In reply to Crown:

    fuck randall cobb and fuck the packers Crown... fuck them right in the face.

  • BEARS
    Lions
    Jets

  • New England -7
    Chicago+3
    Carolina +7

  • Forte is going to get a deal done by week 4.

    About the same time Rex Grossman will be benched for John Beck if he lasts that long.

  • Bears
    New England
    Arizona

  • Philly
    Seattle
    NYG

  • Why can't I just choose who will win? I don't like the points add or subtracted to game total.

    I felt weird.. watching this game because I don't understand why there was no Defense.

    Randal Cobb is already being hyped up. First off, ran the wrong route ,second off, wasn't suppose to bring it out of the endzone, and third, no kick returner will return it against the Packers, unless the wind is furiously against them.

    I get forced to watch Project Runway and be "involving" when watching it.

    Last but not least, for those of you that are on my facebook or friends with me, do not tell me the score sunday or ask what I think of the game.

    September 11 is my fiance bday. I have to honor it. Thus, I will have the game recorded and then watch after I make her "happy". Please understand good luck guys!

  • In reply to Artoo:

    holy shit Erik. What a ratfcuk of a birthday (was that insensitive?). Bummer mang. My wife's sister got married that day... wasn't the best wedding ever to say the least.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    R2, anybody can pick 3 winners. Take the 3 biggest favorites every week and you'll get all 3 almost 50% of the time (this week it's 46% for NE + SD + ARI all winning). There's no skill involved there.

    The point of the setting a point spread is to make as close to a 50-50 bet as possible. So you handicap the favorite and say he has to win by at least that many points. It's not any more complicated than that.

    By contrast, winning 3 50-50 bets only happens 12.5% of the time by pure luck, and it takes real skill to beat it.

  • In reply to Michael L:

    Interesting point there Michael. If i get my four up this week (NE, GB, CHI, ARI) then I might just roll up 50% of the winings on the three biggest favourite each week. The site I bet on has no spreads, and it's my first year betting on the NFL. Beating the spreads on DBB last year I found kinda tricky - I got 3 teams up twice during the whole season - and because I am a fantasy nut I was pretty clued in to injuries etc. Spreads do indeed kill you. From what I can gather, the following teams should win straight out, but beating the spreads just makes it a clusterfuck and not worthwhile.(already made my DBB picks)

    ARI, NYG, SD, CLE, PHI, NE, KC, HOU

    ATL and NYJ are less certain, unless you're a fan, obviously.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    Phweeep! Multiple flags on the play!

    Illegal motion before the snap.
    "I get forced to watch Project Runway ...."
    No Erik my mang, daddy cat gets to watch whatever daddy cat wants to watch because he's the tiger not the pussy .....

    Neutral zone infraction, the defense is offsides.
    "September 11 is my fiance bday. I have to honor it."
    It's the NFL week one. Bears Falcons. Football season man. No woman in her right mind seriously expects her man to bend over on this issue, she's just testing the water my young Padawan. The old Jedi mind trick where with a wave of her hand she says "You will ignore your natural and God-given birthright to watch football on a Sunday ..." - it's a test, to see exactly how much of a pussy you are for future reference when that ring is offically on there and it's a done deal and your balls are in her purse. No, my mang, no. She has to honor the football before she cherishes and obeys. Give her an inch now, and you're one of those comedic whipped husbands in the movies, afraid of their lives standing up to their wives like the emasculated be-atches we have that pass for men now.

    Draw your line in the sand and send a clear message Erik.
    Crystal. Fucking. Clear.

    This is NFL Sunday, and we didn't sweat all off-seson praying that there would be football, Bear football, taking place this season. There are 24 hours in a day, and if she can't respect that you want/need/must have three of those for yourself then she is not the kind of woman that you want to spend the rest of your life with, trust me on that one. Give and take mang, and it goes both ways. She can have you for 21 hours, but 24 on a Sunday. Do not give her an inch on this or you will be trussed up like a Christmas turkey for the rest of your life.

    Draw your line in the sand and send a clear message Erik.
    Crystal. Fucking. Clear.

    Read that again and think carefully .....

    Either that or tell it it's the tenth anniversary of 9/11 and you don't think it would be right to celebrate on such a day, your heart wouldn't be in it. Sit at home and casually turn on the TV. "Oh, hey, the Bears are on ..."

    Fail to see this game live, at home or in a Bar - (would it kill her to be in a bar for three hours on her birthday?!) ... and don't let the door hit your vagina on the way out ...

    With all due respect to your fiance Artoo ...

    Draw the line man, draw the line .....NOW ...or forever regret it.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    tell 'her' not 'it' that was a typo, I think ....

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    It's not over man. It wasn't over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor and it's not over now ... but I can hear the Messerschmitts ...

  • In reply to Artoo:

    Irish is right, Erik. But I'll stop short of calling you a pussy. Now if your sacrifice doesn't get you laid, you're definitely a pussy. If it does (as it should), then I'll call you shrewd. Very shrewd. Tevo that shit, dip that wick, turn on the game and have a smoke. I expect detailed notes and I expect to hear that you wore your superman suit under your classy date-night garb.

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    I hope you didn't miss the game Artoo, it's awesome (although the 4th qtr is still to play out ...)

  • The fat lady hasn't sung, but she's opening up her lungs.

    - Ditka

  • I don't see anywhere on the site to change my profile/settings. Specifically, where to put a URL for an avatar. lil' help?
    So ya'll know, I have read every post this long brutal offseason, way to keep it real and somewhat entertaining. But the season is starting and I am ready to talk some serious trash!

  • Meriweather is surpassing even the most outlandish of my fantasies:

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Oh dear baby jebus, thanks for landing this guy for the Bears.
    What the f-ck was that?!?!

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Godfather theme. Awesome.

  • Philly -5
    NE -7
    Seahawks +6

  • Damn, that song is worth my last vote!

    I'm going for the perfectly zero score!

    Denver
    Washington
    Dallas

  • Listened to this
    http://www.chicagobears.com/multimedia/multimediapopup.asp?mm_file_id=2515&play_clip=Y&rn=1

    and it made me think that Dane is one of those guys that's in the league instead of people more talented because of brainpower.

  • Oh, and watching the latest Thayer thing, I like seeing ex-lineman that have not turned into lard balls.

  • That Saints match-up just got easier.

    Colston is out with a broken collarbone (ouch).

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    four weeks per Jay Glazer.

  • colston broken collar bone. out against bears

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    I just drafted the sod. Again. I'll take the victory though.

  • tennessee +3
    indy +9
    philly -4.5

  • WTF happened to the blog? It was gone for a few hours -- like literally missing off the CN site.

    Anyway here's a Trib article on C.Williams from a couple weeks back that I found interesting...

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/bears/ct-spt-0826-chris-williams-bears-chic20110826,0,2971831.story

  • In reply to Michael L:

    Makes me pull for him that much more. Sounds like he is putting the work in. Hopefully he gets the results this season.

  • In reply to Michael L:

    Jimmy's Gnomes must've been humping the server rack. I noticed it too. Broken link to the most popular blog on the site?
    WTH Greenfield?

  • In reply to Michael L:

    Oh yeah, speaking of the Trib... I was shocked, SHOCKED, to actually see a positive, insightful comment on there for once:

    ----- Quote of a non-shithead -----
    > chibears85 at 3:49 PM September 08, 2011
    Can someone be objective in this, please? Instead of finding bullet points that identify potential concerns to unravelour season, can we at least identify what we are good at first?

    Go to FootballOutsiders if you want to confirm these stats:

    1. Bears Defense were solid last year - they are predicted to be the #3 defense this year.
    2. Bears Special Teams were solid lastyear - they are predicted to be the #2 ST unit this year.

    Wow - right off the bat, it looks like we could be dominant in 2 of 3 phases. For those of you who say that five yards on a kickoff will now make us a terrible team, please stop. This rule affects everyone, and touchbacks have only increased from 17% last year to 31% this year. Punts and FGs will be unchanged. And a great special teams coach will find ways to take advantage of the new rule first.

    Last year, our offense was a big letdown. But what was bad? The line, no question. But QB, RB, WR? According to FO, the Bears offense in 4+ WR sets was #2 in the NFL last year (including Forte & Olsen split wide) Did we doenough to improve our short yardage game? Who knows - but if adding Carimi + Spencer + blocking TEs + Marion Barber can help us get to an "average"offense, we could be an excellent team this year.

    We actually have a real game this weekend, so our questions will be answered pretty soon. Just stop complaining about everything!
    ----- End quote -----

    Amazing huh? Anyway I looked up the Football Outsiders data and found it interesting. I'll follow up on that in a later post.

  • Yessss the Sat show is BACK baby. I LOL'd so hard at the Roy Williams rant from Rev.

    Bears (I always pick the Bears)
    Broncos
    Redskins

    Yes I picked Cutler, Orton and Rexy.

  • In reply to Shady:

  • went to the Back to Football Rally today at the Daley Center...
    it was alil' deserted compared to last year....
    maybe it was the weather...
    got to talk to Mongo and Otis Wilson
    they both let me look at their SBXX rings...
    Mongo wouldn't let me try it on...lol
    he said he isn't as fast as he used to be...lol
    I want to go out to Duke of Earl's Charity Event downtown tonight
    but it doesn't look like it's gna happen...
    JKnox, DHest, BMerriweather and a couple more Bears are supposed to be out there too...

    I NEED EM!!!

    btw....IS IT SUNDA\Y YET???????
    BEAR DOWN!!!!!!!!

  • In reply to SoILBearsFan:

    Fricking Awesome!!!

  • If u aren't following Jeff on Twitter yet u should be...great exchange w thee hitman himself at the moment.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    as much "down to earth" Chris Harris seems because he talks to fans via twitter, he often comes off a prick....
    idk might jus be me....
    I got him to follow me on twitter for awhile, then he unfollowed me...
    Double A is def my fav. "twitter bear"
    I've talked to him quite a few times...good dude!

    That hit Early Cambell put on the defender was awesome.

  • San Diego

    Cleveland

    Arizona

  • My Opinion:

    The Weekend Show's "Rant" championing Olin Kruetz was misguided. Did he not watch the Saints last night?

  • chris williams may be out ahead of some of the other players when it comes to stamina late into the game.
    when i read that story about his sweat box called "the refuge", michael l, i had visions of burgess merideth leaning over that sled and spittin all over him while he screamed his head off about "guts"..

    i say for the first three games that running his way late in the game could pay dividends just because he got himself into incredible shape
    plus he is a man of character. hanging out and being real with the kids at camp speaks volumes toward his committment to humanity; and this has got to help in forming a cohesive unit for cutler to work behind in the years to come

    once again i have to wonder if all the williams on the offensive will be attending "camp refuge" together next summer

  • Bears
    Arizona
    Giants

    Crimminy, it's crawling to Sunday, and I don't think I'll sleep until Sunday night...

    I think we can hash and rehash Kruetz all season long, but I'm betting he has a subpar year because he's like a fish out of water. He made his statement, but now, he has to live with it, and I don't believe for a second that's a happy man bending over for Drew Brees. This will be his last year.

    If I hear the term "Matty Ice" one more time, I'm going to go outside and blow the first bird that even looks like a falcon out of the clear blue sky and feed him to my dogs.

    MIchael Irvin was practically touching himself on the NFL net while he talked about the Falcons new WR. After Pringles cans his ass, I want him wandering the field wishing he was Roddy McDowell.

    Good show, Jeff. Loved the rant and the spot on Drunk Driving, though I won't look for MADD to adopt it as their 2012 slogan......

    The champs got introduced to pump up the jam last night like it was the early 90s. You need a new DJ up there man.

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    That was hilarious. Good recall.

    Whoomp There It Is must not be available yet.

  • In reply to BearDown1982:

    Actually, they got introduced to "Get Ready For This" aka 'y'all ready for this'.

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    That is not less hilarious.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I dunno, I think it's a little less hilarious. Pump up the jam? That would be kinda weird...

    How's this for an intro?

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    woooooooow... sam whatsisface. WOW!

    Sheeeit mang, that will almost be as memorable and still talked about in 25 years as the "Super Bowl Shuffle". Groundbreaking media. Just awesome and timeless. Timeless!

    ...naaaw, just kiding. It was just about as overproduced, contrived, and terrible as the gay belt thing.

    Oh well. Guess everyone gets their 15 minutes. right?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Actually, conference champions get a full 3 and 1/2 hours.....

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    Looks like 1 out of 3 which is bad. Freeman is in big trouble tomorrow. Ryan is in trouble, and so is your defense when we we get a hold of 'em.

  • Packers can suck my mothafuckin DIIIIIICCCCCCCCCKKK!

    Their D is clearly not the samer and Our Bears will exploit that.
    Thier offense wont score 42 on us.
    and Rodgers is a bitch. ENUFF SAID!

  • don't know if it counted but, i got in another vote early this morning.....early and often as they say.....maybe we win something useful that can be consumed at the blog party

    but, i have never been satisfied by voting so i am not too optomistic about our chances in a "chicago election"

    i am excited for our football jonesing mindset and
    this may help those "beat" writers who can't include jay cutler in the same conversations with the "other elite quaterbacks"

    www.suntimes.com/sports/football/4720524-419/amazi

    i have freinds who have been shuttling in and out of haiti since the earthquake; and everyone of them who has never seen 3rd world living conditions have come back "changed"

    i believe it has helped our leader also
    jay has been gifted with unnatural ability...this summer he obviously changed his core strength, improved his mechanics, and did something special that helped his head.
    i will sum up my hopes for the 2011 football season
    in the words of mr. dylan

    "i know that fortune is waiting to be kind
    so give me your hand and say you'll be mine"

    Cool article. I get more impressed with Cutler as a person the more I read about him.

  • Well boys, Bell is getting a shot on Sunday. Some of us have been begging for a look see. I hope our confidence is warranted and he brings it.

    Jeff, I have an Uncle Larry question for you.

    Has a Bear player ever blogged on to this site?

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    Unga or his mom did?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    MBP - i think that was a joke. the guy said he was his dad. Also, what the fuck happened to him. They wanted him to make the team so badly and he had to miss almost 3 weeks of camp???

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    still haven't solved that mystery.

  • My 15month old alarm clock has me up for the day so i figured i would get a quick post in:

    To all of the beer enthusiasts on the site please take a moment to chuckle a bit at one of the more satisfying articles out there:

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44460121/ns/business-us_business/?gt1=43001

  • hee hee

    Tribune article:
    The Bears have plenty of confidence they're not going to be rolled like the Saints and Packers were (giving up so much yardage,pts and first downs). Not against any of their first three opponents, starting with the Falcons.

    "We don't play defense like that," linebacker Lance Briggs said.

  • I hope to god that his knee is completely healed if/when he decides to come back. You don't want to see 3 or 4 knee surgeries on the same knee. If he is healthy he immediately turns our linebacking corps into one of the best once again. PISA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't want your knee to be SWOOOOLLLLLLLLLE! Please come back to us to fucking destroy the Packers! Your helmet in Grant's fucking facemask is all i ask!

  • Hey GP and Shady, I've come "THIS close" to ordering Sunday Ticket on my PS3 but have backed off when asked to enter my CC info.

    I know now that's it's been hacked it's probably safe as gitup... I'm just a little gun-shy to enter the CC numbers. thoughts? (keep in mind I only have mere hrs to go here)

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    You will save more money than if you are going to bars every Sunday. The question is, can you live with the frustration and effort involved with the pirating?

  • In reply to Z Bearz:

    no Z... that's why the money is worth it... I can't take missing games when the thing cuts out or just doesn't connect.

    And they split the cost over 3 months, so it's only $85 a month for 3 months... doesn't feel as bad as tree fitty all at once.

    I just want to know that the PS3 network is safer from hacking now.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB - It's like 9/11 and the anniversary terrorists we just caught, and will probably roast on a spit down at Guantanamo. We aren't getting caught with our pants down again, the sleeping giant has awoken.

    If Sony gets a takedown from dick lick amateurs like Lulzsec again, there will be no PS4 and the stock may dive and never come back. Fortunes will be lost.

    They shut the site for 3 months, and had some serious firms come in and give the place a once over. Think of it like a local savings and loan that got tipped over once, not long ago. The security guard is no longer an old man.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Safer? Yes. Safe? No.

    that's not going to help with our matty negotiations.

    Peterson's legs are going to fall off in 3. Earl Campbell style.

  • interesting, no...

    "2.The Saints' offense put up some gaudy numbers: 477 total yards, 32 pass completions 27 first downs, among others. Their 79-yard march over the final 1 minute, 8 seconds nearly gave them an opportunity to force overtime"

  • Damn it! WHEN will it be game time?

  • IT'S OWWWWNNN!!!

    Sunday ticket through my PS3 baby... check!

    Can't wait. Thanks for the word GP... that's what I figured, but wanted to actually hear it from someone.

    Willie... i'll let you know how it goes tomorrow.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'd love to hear how that turns out, MB. The only reason I have Direct TV is for the Sunday Ticky, I'd drop it in a second for next season if you think the stream quality is decent. My ps3 mostly collects dust cuz most of my online gaming is on xbox 360.

  • Patriots
    Chargers
    Cheifs

  • Denard Robinson is simply ridiculous.

  • Jeff... college football stinks? Really??

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    yes. its a dreadful version of a great sport. watch what happens to denard robinson once the finest athletes are compiled for the next level.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    favorite sports to watch in order:

    1. Pro Football (Bears)
    2. Playoff Hockey
    3. MMA
    4. World Cup Soccer
    5. Bulls playoff basketball
    6. College Football (known teams)
    7. College Gymnastics (Womens - hee hee)
    8. College Baseball World Series
    9. Grade school football
    10.Olympic Waterpolo

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    this shit is good, mb? nd going the whole field in 30 seconds with no one covered?

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    You just have to resign yourself to the fact that it's a different game, and that it's fun to watch BECAUSE a team can do what nd just did. And while I agree 100% that Denard will be another square peg in the NFL (or the second coming of dave meggett) he's amazing to watch now.

    The thing about college ball is that it's not a business yet, these kids LOVE their team and their school... and they would literally still die for the guys in their huddle still... it's not just about lambos and hoes yet. Just sit back and watch the fun that still oozes.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Well said MB.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It is a business. The NCAA and super conferences and name schools just don't want you to feel like it is.

    Well maybe to the kids themselves they don't view it like a business, so in that respect your point stands.

  • In reply to Michael L:

    Appreciate that mike... mighty nice indeed.

  • Jets/Cardinals/Tampa Bay

  • Titans
    Bills
    Lions

    I am least confident in my Bills pick, but they should have a decent offense this year so I figure they beat the spread. I would have taken the Bears if the spread was +4.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    I love Fitzy and SJ. Fantasy gold.

  • In response to Jeff's comment above. I didn't think much of Thursday night's game either. That game is a great example of what Roger Goodell is trying to turn the NFL into - big passing yards, high scoring, basically a quarterback shootout. The only exciting defensive play was the forced fumble - which was a great play, but that's one play in 60 minutes.

  • I hate college football.

    It is unfair and a horrible copy of football.

    Mb, how is it that ND only has to win Nine games to get in a bowl game?

    And why in the hell do they play shitty teams half the damn time?

    Never will I like college football. Sorry.

  • In reply to Artoo:

    Understand erik... it's different when you've played I guess.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I love the sport, if you offered me a chance to play right now on any college team, I would play.

    Please tell me that college football is fair and I will pick a team.

  • Whats up everyone, I've been watching from the sideline as per usual. Hope our boys pull out the big guns tomorrow and smoke those falcons.

    My picks are: Pats, Titans, and Kyle's Broncos. Have a good one everybody. Glad to have real FB back, still doesn't seem real.

  • Also, Jeff, in the future weeks can you post you and your brothers picks like you did last year? I love the show but don't remember all of you guys's picks and had to go back to check.

    Cheers.

  • Tampa Bay

    Jets

    Arizona

  • Oakland
    Detroit
    ANNND BEARS.
