Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions MNF Game Thread

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions MNF Game Thread

It has been a long time since the Bears have been underdogs to the Detroit Lions.  It's been a long time since members of the media, the popular football media of PFT, have predicted the Lions to beat the Bears by 30 points.  Is this a new era for the NFC North?

We shall see what these Lovie Smith Bears are all about tonight.  We'll learn about their toughness as they wrestle with not only a good football team but an intense atmosphere.  We'll know, I think somewhat definitively, what to expect from this group for the remainder of the campaign.

    good luck
    bears are not expected to show up
    bear down

  • Time for Cutler to sac up and make it happen, assuming the coaches can get the play call in in a timely fashion.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Say WHAT?! Are you on DRUGS?! Cutler "Sacs Up" EVERY TIME HE DROPS BACK behind that lame excuse for an offensive line! FLAG on that post!

  • First to say Trent Dilfer can suck a bag of Donkey Dicks

  • we need this win to stay alive in the NFCN playoff hunt mangs. Loose this and it will be uphill from here.

    Btw, been thinking about the Eagles. They are going to be a force next year. Takes time for a bunch of strangers to come together as a cohesive unit. Just sayin.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    win this and it is still be almost perfect
    to catch the "pack" we have to stay on their heels

    barry sanders
    man they are bringin' in the angels
    it is deafening
    this is what the D needs to work on
    shut them up
    and take them out of the game
    with punishnent and tackling

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    You are the reason 99.9% of women should stay away from football. False bravado is bad enough accompanied by testosterone. It's brutal in the presence of estrogen.

  • Trac... check this out:

    Jesusween! awesome!

  • This is for MB

  • In reply to MB30SD:

  • WHO is supposed to win by 30 points?!


  • By the way, did that guy ever get fined for the spear on Earl?

  • first and foremost....BEAR THE FUCK DOWN BOYS!!!!!!

    let's piss on these fuckin' pussies' pipe dream that they are legit and can beat us....



    but I got a question for my fellow bloggers.
    I just moved back to the city (Des Plaines to be specific) this weekend after living in Southern Illinois for 12 yrs. and tonight will be my first Bears game as a resident of the Northwest Chicagoland area and my question is....can anyone recommend a great restaurant/bar to watch games at? A place where there's compotent fans like us, cuz there is NOTHING I hate more than watching/talking football with people who dont know what the fuck they're talking about!
    So, if any of you fine gentleman have a suggestion on where I should watch the game tonight (preferably somewhere in the northwest 'burbs) I would greatly appreciate it!

  • In reply to SoILBearsFan:

    i will have a solid Bears bar for you next week. not some douche bar that plays bears games but a real Bears bar where even the whorish waitresses have ditka mustaches.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Let us all know where that place is. I'll take the whorish waitress without the mustache!

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    It's always good to have a razor handy.

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    just bring the razooo and shavin' cream

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    lol, why next week? I'm tryna be on SWOLLLLLEEEEE tonight!!!!!

  • In reply to SoILBearsFan:

    Probably better off watching it at home. No matter where you go theres gonna be a bunch of muthas that have no idea what they are talking about. Or bring a knowledgeable friend and it can be entertaining as all fuck listening to the ass holes make fools out of themselves.

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    that's very true....

  • Stafford Dead right fucking now.

  • Why does jay always look so fucking ornery? Jump around and smile or something. Stafford dead?

  • As I may have stated once or twice, my hometown is Detroit. I sympathize more than a bunch of the bandwagon twits as to the problems that area has.
    But tonight: the Lions must lose.
    Because my team is the Chicago Bears. The most hallowed franchise in NFL history.
    And tonight, they play the villains. But it's ok to be disliked. It's ok to knock out the opponents quarterback.
    Because tonight, it's just win, baby. Just win.



  • i'm wearing my lucky bears hat. we will win. my wife reminded me i didn't wear it for GB and NO.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Kindly tell the wifey to remind you how to properly dress for all games. :)

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Is there an O-line hiding in the lining of said hat? If not, don't bother with it.

  • With all the Lion hype, any close calls are gonna go to them. Just watch...

  • Yeah, Nate Burleson has great hands. SMH.

  • Where was Chris Harris going???

  • Hitman looks rusty.

  • Bear down gents. I'm ready to tarnish Detroit like it's use to.

  • I think we've established that delayed handoff DOESNT WORK.

  • This is ridiculous.

  • 3 fucking false starts, are you kidding me?! What the fuck do these guys practice all weak?!

  • In reply to Shady:

    Not the silent count, that's for sure.

  • Wow quick screen to Hester, DIDNT SEE THAT COMING. Fuck I cant watch this shit.

  • In reply to Shady:

    OK just one series Shady, calm down. Breathe.

  • we look bad




  • i hope someone is fixin this sh-t

  • 3 and 16 sounds like something a high school team would produce...

  • Pep is going to get there...real soon.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Well, I called the sack - I'll take it.

  • Adams has no rush.

  • Defense came to play. Peanut clearly shadowng Megatron tron.

  • Meriweather looked like he had wings!!!!!!!!

  • That's cause his pocketbook is going to be real light in a couple of days!

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Does 20K really matter to these guys?

  • If you gotta pay a legal team like VIP does, yeah, it does.

  • D is pickin up speed

  • I've got a great rule change idea. How bout the clock only stops at change of possession. Power Ball.

  • Show some balls, O.

    push hard me hearties

  • cutler kept that in a safe spot

  • So instead of calling an audible, Jay is allowed to call a timeout when shit looks bad. Thanks Fartz.

  • Gee only had to watch 15 minutes before seeing the disgusted, out of sync with his coach Cutler.

  • Fucking timeout?!?!?!?

    GET TO FUCK!!!!

  • Getting almost tired as Cutler is of the terrible tempo on playcalls. What is going on that takes so damn long? Is it Martz verbiage? Or are they sending them in by semaphore? Seriously, Michael L? GPL? Theories?

  • This crowd is gonna get bored. Most of those fans haven't gone to an NFL game until this year.

    It ain't a sack when you take the guy down by his grill.

  • Why doesn't Jay just RUN OUT OF THE POCKET when shit goes bad? RUN! YOU NEED 1 YARD!

  • Thank GOODNESS for that face mask call...

  • Unbelievable.
    THREE on Kellen Davis.

  • Fuck KD you're killing the O!

  • cutler is livin' in a body that begs for abuse
    Iove the man's heart

  • davis needs to work this shit out now

  • 4 False starts and a get well card to the Bear Jew.

  • Kellen Davis is killing us with the false starts.

  • HAHAHAHAHAH Shitzengiggles getting the PI call. Nice!

  • Fuck that was tipped. Damn it.

  • Detroits Defense is putting up better numbers for us than our offense so far......

  • Please explain to me why the ball being a duck has anything to do with a PI. It was clearly catchable. I don't get why one has anything to do with the other.

  • So far I'm not impressed. Very crappy performance.

  • (Spluttering coffee) Frank Omiyale? FRANK OMIYALE?? WTF is that spoon doing on the field?

    Looks like Kellen is worse at blocking than Olsen. Pass him the ball maybe?

  • This is agonizing to watch so far. The offense is regressing.

  • Since when can you challenge PI?

  • Horseshit. No photographic evidence, they inferred the ball was tipped.
    Fuck that FUCKING shit.

  • Oh fer fuck sake - this is starting to remind me of the Packers-ears game a few years ago. WHAT?????

    Now they stop the clock without even throwing a flag?
    These refs are burning out their circuit boards.

  • hard to get any flow
    this is a slog

  • Jesus - more penalties than actual plays run.

  • This game is horseshit

  • In reply to gpldan:

    44 total yards. 45 penalty yards

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    make that 50 penalty yards

  • In reply to thebigcheese:


  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    Reminds me of a particular MNF game.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Ravens @ Packers 2009 or Packers @ Bears 2010?

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    Packers@Bears 2010.

  • Why is Jay throwing the ball lefty? LEFTY!

  • This is a joke right? This game isn't for real... right?

  • Neither team will do shit this year if they don't learn some freaking discipline. Lions front four seems to take pride in getting called for RTP.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Penalty bowl.

  • these lions came to kick our as'

  • Now THAT was a run for dear life.

  • Good scramble...

  • Cutler forgot his snickers. Hanie time.


  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Neutral zone infraction and take a cheap shot at the QB while they are at it???
    And no PF? Horseshit - then let Peppers run free a couple of times a game until Stafford goes down. It's worth the penalty.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    They come through the line and headslap Cutler? Come on!

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Yeah, I'd take a couple of fifteen yarders to let Stafford know he's not safe. Jog his memory a little.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    I think Pep takes one clean shot at him and he's done. For the season.

  • Jay- fall on your butt not your throwing arm.


  • 4 and an inch... and... timeout b4 delay of game. Awesome.

  • what a long, strange drive this has been

  • Yo Martz! Long time fan first time caller. See what happens when you run it up the middle? Your buddy Angela hasn't bothered drafting any linemen over the years so let's get this show in the air and quit the pretense.

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Maybe more Hester screens. I can't get enough of those.

  • I swear Ron Turner is still calling plays.

  • I can't believe this.

    Hopefully Omlette makes his fat ass useful and plants it right onto Vanden Boschs ankle, dirty fuck.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    That may be about all that fat egg-based dish is good for.

  • Maybe the Lions could play 10 on D, just to make it fair.

  • Might as well give up our last time out. Why isn't Barber the one with the ball on 4th and 1?

  • Lovie should be fired. Now.

  • Fucking pathetic play call and execution.

  • Christ. I give up.

  • Wow everyone on that O-line needs to be cut. Unbelievable. And Lovie is wasting the last time-out on an obviously pointless challenge.

  • Oy vey.

  • Someone needs to discover time travel so Lovie can be fired before this game started.

    Multiple false starts, stupid decisions, then challenging what was obviously a short 4th down attempt?

    Fire him by actually setting him on fire.

  • No idea why they went single back. Either go empty and spread them out or go with Barber in the I.
    That was f-cking stupid - like a rewind of every bad goal line run we've had for years.

  • It's just a horrible lack of concentration and discipline all around.

  • Nice call Lovie, I mean who needs three points in a game like this, right?

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Its because our offense can score at will.... wait

  • Out of time outs. Now we'll have 4-10 more false starts or delay of game.

  • fire the fucking coaches right fuckign now. that is all is have to say. motherfucking coaches. take the points and stop them on D. un fucking believable.

  • Same old fucking shit from this offense. Same old shit from Lovie. No excuses for that fuck up, WHO IS IN THE BOOTH TELLING HIM TO CHALLENGE THESE PLAYS?! He is literally the worse in game coach in the NFL.

  • Lovie you Fuck!

  • Fucking Pathetic!

  • Cutler has less than .2 seconds on every passing play. Nobody could survive that.

  • oh oh pep

  • Great peppers down! Fuck My Life!

  • And of course a receiver gets behind everyone. This team sucks, I haven't joined the "fire everyone" crowd so far but Angelo needs to go.

  • And if things couldn't get worse, Peppers limping off the field and no pressure and Tron shows up. Fucking terrible safety play.


  • Jesus. H. Christ.

  • So Chris Harris is back, and he's still lost in coverage ....

    How long have we been crying out for safeties, receivers and o-linemen for?

  • Still think the Lions suck? Take off those glasses boys, it's gonna be a night to remember.

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    Our coaching worries me A LOT more than the Lions do.

  • Wow. THAT was a helluva first quarter. I mean, when I saw the bears offense march down to the 35 I told my wife, "We're one defensive penalty away from field goal range!".

    Not predictable at all. I told my wife, "Lovie will challenge that spot, lose the challenge, and cost us our last time out." Boy was I wrong. Man, WHAT. A. GAME!

    What's next? A Calvin Johnson TD?

  • Fire Lovie again.

    Peppers goes out on a 3rd down, obvious passing situation.

    Can you guess what the play will be?


  • harris looked like he is still hurt

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Yeah, that hammy doesn't look right.

  • No receivers, no O-line, bad secondary play and now no Peppers. I say the Bears move to the NFC West.

  • Clean release off the line, no jam, REALY!?!?!?!

  • that is what happens when you don't kick the field goal.. i literally called it 2 plays before it happened. and peppers is hurt. fucking lovie and martz and angelo.

  • No pressure at the line, clean release from the corner to the safety. Harris gets burned because he is not up to speed. Peppers down and the Lion are one cheap shot at getting Cutler out of the game. Not looking good.

  • But let's not put it ALL on Lovie.

    Chris Harris and Meriweather both flunk safety school:


  • They need to keep up with the quick passes and runs and slow down the rush. Good calls in this series.

  • Ok, I'm out before more taunting from Packer trolls.

    Turns out, this is Detroit's coming out party. Couldn't happen to a more deserving city.

  • Suzy Kolber is an idiot.

    There is no "meniscus area" on the interior of a knee.

    The meniscus is cartilage, you idiot.

  • The knee area of the knee...on the leg...somewhere. Aw hell, guys, I'm just a pretty blonde! Is there a drunk HOFer around that wants a grope?

  • Peppers. Knee. Fuck.

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    Calling the season if he is out. Offense looks good at the moment

  • And that is how we use Kellen Davis.

  • hey what the hel' was that
    wow a one step drop

  • We are not a very good team. We seem unprepared and poorly coached.

  • Garza got stood up on that Forte run.

  • Cutty has to play the game of his life - our D is going to have it's work cut out for it without Pep. Hope his knee gets right.

  • Yes, Martz. PLEASE keep calling runs up the gut with a single-back set against one of the best defensive lines in football, with one of the worst offensive lines in football.

  • nice get outside the pocket

  • What do you know, outside of the pocket completion.

  • Thank god Angelo chose Sanzensausage. Oh wait. He chose us.

  • Hester is NOT a WR. Sorry Angelo. YOU LOSE!

  • In reply to Shady:

    And I like Devin, he's a true play maker. But you can't fit a fucking square peg into a round hole damn it. If he's going to line up at WR line him up in the fucking slot. Fuck!

  • He alligator armed that ball. What the fuck.

  • Hester, hands on the ball = CATCH THE DAMN BALL

  • hester needs to carry the ball 24 hours a day next week

  • The experiment has ended. Hester is no WR.

  • Shame on Hester.

  • what, not going for it on 4th and short in FG range again? Whatsamatter Lovie, change your mornic mind?

  • Oh Devin.

    Dear Santa.



  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Tooth Fairy, Cookie Monster, Mary Poppins... whoever can bring them, I'm not picky.

  • I can't take many more Hester drops.

  • Should be 7-6 though. Martz seems to have opened up the short passing game section at least.

  • should be 9-6
    going for the extra pt.

  • So why didn't the kick the FG the first time?? sometimes Lovie just makes these totally random decisions.... grrrrr.

  • In reply to christianh:

    Not random. Dumb.

  • In reply to christianh:

    Actually, it might be all that Nyquil he's chugging.

    I can just imagine the director on-set:

    "No, Lovie... you don't actually need to drink it for the commercial... oh crap. Someone call 911!"

  • Ha ha yes that'd explain it....

  • And yes, we need receivers. The top two on all the good teams are worlds better than anything we run out there.

  • Brandon "on swole" Meriweather really has that missed tackle thing down.

  • Robbie Gould MVB of the game so far.

  • it's hard to watch Cutler throw a solid pass under pressure and have Hester piss it away instead of catching it for 1st and goal from the 4. He seems to drop alot of 3rd downs and balls where he actually beats his guy.

    If we just don't give up 70 yard plays we win the game. this game is so winnable so why is Lovie and Martz trying to fuck it up?

    You get a lucky drive fueled by cheap shot penalties and you call some bullshit call on 3rd and 4th and 1? Take the points, any competent grade shchool coach knows that.

  • we just aren't makin; plays

  • Peanut tackles better from his backside than most of the rest of our secondary does standing up.

  • ....annnnnnnnnnnnnnd now comes the poor tackling, like icing on the cake.

    It's like the Bears know all the things that make my blood pressure skyrocket.

  • Bears D line getting absolutely NO pressure. Recipe for disaster.

  • Our corners are getting burned bad.

  • In reply to Vicp71:

    Umm, no they're not.

    They're actually playing a very solid game.

    Remember that in the defense the Bears play, the corners are rarely responsible for deep coverage, and not often are matched up man-to-man downfield.

  • I can't believe the Bears might come out of this disaster of a half only down 4...

  • You know Mike Tice gets a lot of credit for polishing turds, but how do defenders constantly run RIGHT AROUND our lineman? If these fuckers would just move their damn feet Jay might actually have a chance to survive this season.

  • In reply to Shady:

    No discipline either.

  • frankie

  • Another false start?!?

  • Someone needs to punch Vanden Bosch in the fucking face. That was ridiculous.

  • In reply to NY Bears Fan:

    Someone needs to punch the fucking ref in the face. The hell was that?

    And Matty? PAY THE MAN.

  • Number 6...

  • that was a play
    we need more of that every drive

  • Thank god for Matt Forte

  • Keep running the ball! Jesus Martz can't help himself.

  • Angelo needs to quit dicking around and PAY MATT FORTE.

  • pay that man

  • Where the hell is Kellen Davis tonight. Three false starts and Cutler has to tell him what to do when going in motion.

  • In reply to NY Bears Fan:

    Too bad Kreutz isn't still around to punch him in the dick.

  • If Angelo lets Forte walk it proves he's a Packer's mole. Seriously.

  • If Forte does not get paid, and fucking jerry tries to cheap out of paying him and then #22 gets hurt, I will stop following this team until that tool JA is hung drawn and quartered on MNF.

  • Screw me SILLY !!!


  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    That scramble and throw to Hester was why we traded the world for him.
    C'mon, Jay. Win this one for you.

  • Ok Cutler is playing a great game so far.

  • Bears have no business winning this game right now. Thank you Jay.

  • FINALLY!! Something.


    KD,you silly stupid bastard! You can't do much else but you are a BEAST catching the ball.

  • Hester and Davis both redeemed themselves on that drive. Great catch going up and getting the ball early in the drive.

  • hey we didn't drop an important pass
    that is the kind of focus he needs to apply at the snap
    he should be gettin better as the season rolls on

  • This is a wacky game.

  • That is the only situation that KD should be used.

  • Wait, I thought Cutler's diabetes was supposed to act up in the evening.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Cutler's career passer rating is actually significantly higher on monday night than on sunday and thursday

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Cavs blew the excess insulin out of him. Rejuvenation therapy.l

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:


  • One very important point to take away from the first half is the offense was on the field twice as long as the defense. That will be very important late in this game.

  • Jay is clearly a better passer on the move/ out of the pocket. Why does something so obvious to fans seem to escape these coaches?

  • In reply to Shady:

    I don't know he's better out of the pocket because he's always running for his life. If he had protection and receivers things might change.

  • In reply to Shady:

    You mean like a QB sneak on third/fourth and inches?

    Call them Captain Anti-obvious and his crew.

  • In reply to Shady:

    I was thinking the same thing. He has thrown some great passes on the move.

  • In reply to Shady:

    NyQuil, Shady. NyQuil.

  • Nice drive and Nice TD...finally.

    STILL we have NO Pass RUSH even before when Peppers was in there only rushing our front 4 is NOT enough Dammit...Luvie you whore BLITZ A Fucking LB!!!

  • Johnson is a fucking monster. 6'5" and a 45 inch vertical jump. Thats ridiculous.

  • Swole out, Mage in.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Check that, swole back in - late hit.

  • Come on Briggs why lose us 15 yards there? No discipline. Still that crowd is awfully quiet now...

  • In reply to christianh:

    Wasn't it Meriweather?

  • In reply to Vicp71:

    No - that was a legit hit. Briggs came in late.

  • In reply to Vicp71:

    briggs was 2-3 seconds later
    the boys do not want to be taken lightly

  • In reply to christianh:

    On the other hand, if you're going to give those cheap-shot fucks a taste of their own medicine, that was the time to do it.

  • Merriweather cracks me up. He came across and blasted the receiver.

  • DJ Moore you smurf mutherfucker! Nice INT

  • Jay not gonna let the coaches fuck this up.

  • D.J. Moooooooooore!

  • now the lions have been down by much more; and come back
    but we finished strong
    and we are standing up to these motor city tuffs

  • DJ Moore - all he does is make BIG BIG plays.

  • $20 the ESPN braintrust will only talk about how Detroit is giving this game away with all their "mistakes"

  • Bears ball out of the half. Would like to see them continue to run the ball effectively with Forte/Barber to set up the play action. I just don't trust these coaches.

  • Likes: Cutler, Forte, and most of Martz's play calling; also defensive play.

    Hate: Lovie's brain-cramps, lack of discipline, O-line play.

  • Eagles are going to fire their DC mid-season? Ha ha.

  • If Martz calls that pass play where Kellen Davis has to block Jay's blindside against a defensive end i will fucking kill his whole family.

    In the Falcons game he called it, KD whiffed and John Abraham fucking killed Cutler in the endzone.

    In the New Orleans game he called it, KD whiffed, and Turk McBride sack fumbled Cutler which was the turning point in the game.

    In this game he called it, KD whiffed, and Cutler somehow sensed it, stepped up in the pocket and avoided a Vandenbosch death stroke.

    STOP FUCKING CALLING THAT PLAY AND CALL MORE PASS PLAYS TO HIM. we got rid of a supposedly bad blocking tightend only to replace him with the guy that is a worse blocking tightend.

    When the crowd is loud just run the play and don't fuck around with shifts and motion which is a guaranteed false start by Cookie , Webb or Omiyale. Guaranteed. Just don't do it.

    Take the points when you have them you fucking cocksucking coaches. You take the points and megatron doesn't get that pass.

    If you are going to run a 3rd and 1 at least run something that has a chance of working. if you are then going to run a 4th and 1 at least have some balls and run a bootleg or some shit that would catch everyone off guard. Don't make Tyler Clutts block Suh or Fairley. holy shit it's not rocket science.

    This game is so fucking winnable. i've got my bears hat on god damn it. not even martz can fuck up that shit.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    LOL'd at the hat comment.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Martz is calling a good game so far. And can we not threaten people's families even in jest, it's a pretty awful thing to do.

  • Hope they can keep this going. I like when Jay throws on the run. But I'm quite certain Gastapo Martz will put a stop to that.

  • In reply to MaddBearfan:

    Nein Nein Nein!!!!

  • Just re-read the posts. We are cracking me up gents. This is hilarious.

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    Oh you mean stuff like this?




  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    Just be a sport cheese.

  • How in thee hell did we have so much time of possession in the first half? Almost 21 minutes.

  • and keep running the ball. we have won 10 straight when runnign more than 20 times. it's not hard.

  • When Peppers limped off, the rest of the Bears ‘ season flashed before my eyes and, believe me, it wasn’t pretty. As it is, THAT was one UGLY half of football.

    I doubt the Lions are concerned about being down by 3 at the half since they’re usually down by 20.

    Lovie: Challenging a spot where Forte was CLEARLY short. Ridiculous!

    Referee Clete Blakeman: Listen up, Moron. Don’t whistle the play dead because of “Unabated to the quarterback.” and then stand there and watch Kyle Vanden Bosch knock Cutler down! Ridiclulous!

  • Wonder what is up with Peppers, it didn't look good when he limped off. He still doesn't look to be playing at 100%

  • I swear watching a Bears game takes years off your life.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Saves you health insurance costs later. Win-win ;)

  • In reply to Shady:

    +101 on that...

  • upfield hester

  • Flippin Hester and his ego

  • Hester still thinks receiving is basically returning. Sigh.

  • Same bubble screen that never fucking works. WTF!

  • Just go down Cutler

  • In reply to Vicp71:


  • Podlesh is kicking the shit out of the ball.

  • In reply to NY Bears Fan:

    aPod - the Bear jew pt. 2

  • Good grief. I thought the bubble screen died with Shoop, but there it is in Zombie version, with only one blocker.

  • 3 and out. Great.

  • Forward Hester....FORWARD!!!!!

  • Hester needs to be running when he catches the ball.

    That means screens in front of the line of scrimmage, crossing routes, quick hitters, go routes....

    It's not hard.

  • If videogamers can start curing AIDS, certainly this group of people can solve our play-calling woes.

  • In reply to tomburg:

    What the?

  • In reply to BigDaddy:

    just making the observation that this message board seems to be pretty good at crowdsourced play-calling. read the article, it'll make sense.

  • A 80% Peppers is better than a 100% Reed

  • So the Lions cannot run the ball at all that should help the pass defense. If they can ever get to Stafford.

  • Fucking 3rd and long conversions.

  • I'm sorry, but it's stupid to show blitz with Urlacher and then send Briggs one gap outside--the WR hot read is straight to Urlacher's zone, and then Stafford throws it a couple steps early when Johnson's in Briggs' zone instead.

  • bullshit fucking call ref. stop influencing the game with shit calls. fucking ridiculous rules.

  • So if the receiver puts his head down you're not allowed to hit him? These refs are a joke.

  • I so fucking hate the officiating this year.

    Ridiculously inconsistent.

  • Well that's an idiot call that gave them the lead. Stupid.

  • harris is a liability with one leg. get him the fuck out of there.

  • Solid halftime adjustments I see.

  • And of COURSE the Lions take advantage of the Bears being on their heels after the long completion & bullshit penalty.

    A well-coached team wouldn't be so flat-footed on that play--they'd recover, or the coach would call a timeout to get their heads in the present, rather than being pissed off about the prior play.

  • Some bad calls this game, both ways.

  • No idea how there wasn't an illegal hands to the face when Izzy got tossed by his facemask within a foot of Stafford.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I saw the same thing

  • In reply to NY Bears Fan:


  • that touchdown was the equivalent of a wind aided 100yd sprint.

  • Oh goddammit!

  • Fucking hell, #23--let that one go out of bounds!

  • fucking brilliant move, let it go and we get it at the 35. instead????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
    the fucking 6

  • And that line is absurdly bad.

  • Devin. Devin. Devin.

  • Like I said, this is gonna be a game to remember. Comic relief is starting to set in.

  • Bobby Carpenter looking very tough tonight.

  • Matty is such a stud. That play has sprung him several times for big games.

  • OK, their D-line is being over-aggressive and losing discipline by rushing too far upfield.


  • that last Cutler reception to Hurd should quiet all the naysayers.

  • Jay is playing his balls off.

  • Cutler is playing brilliant street football...

  • Jay Cutler highlight reel tonight.

  • cutler at his best

  • They need to continue to dial up plays that take advantage of the d-line over pursuit.

  • Kellen Davis doesn't know where to line up, and Omiyale is saved from yet another false start.

    Do the Bears actually have a coach?

  • Thats the third time Cutler has had to tell Davis where to go.

  • Catch that ball!

  • In reply to christianh:

    Forte is not going to drop many of those. Sigh.

  • MAKE THE CATCH FORTE! Damn, terrible 3rd down drops.

  • Aw man, we have had way too many dropped passes. Jay is putting it on the money.

  • turnover now

  • Oh, Matty, you gotta make that catch. Gorgeous throw.

  • FUCK. Forte should've caught that. Brilliant play by Cutler.

  • you couldn't throw it any better. come on matty, that is a drive killer. you catch that and we score points.

  • What are the odds Detroit tries to run the ball now?

  • Peppers out

  • Worst possible outcome? Fuck.

  • Are you fucking kidding me?

  • If this turns into a L it is not on Cutler. He is playin his ass off!

  • Oh, holy fuck.


    Meriweather, you fail as a safety. That angle was atrocious.

    What part of "playing with a lead, wanting to kill the clock" was unclear? I FUCKING CALLED IT AND I'M NOT A PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL COACH.

  • what is up with these big plays
    the D owes us 2 scores

  • Would like to see a quick toss to Matty to counteract them crashing down on the interior gaps.
    He gets one on one on those linebackers and it's going to be a big gain.
    Cmon D.

  • Briggs fucked up badly but where the fuck is Harris????? that was embarassing.

  • Don't have words for that one.
    Wow. WTF.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Terrible. Terrible. Terrible safety play.

  • Harris out of position.

  • AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH this is painful... even my Colts fan husband is saying this game is a mess.

  • it's tough to watch a game that should have completely different outcome. like the twilight zone.

  • DaBears is a concept,
    By which we can measure,
    Our pain,
    I'll say it again,

  • this is embarassing

  • Offense better make a big play here or this game is over. Cannot let Detroit T off on Cutler like this.

  • Urlacher and Harris both shot the same gap.

  • In reply to NY Bears Fan:

    no wonder Lach was up Briggs ass on the sideline.

  • really? it had to be the 2nd longest run in the history of the Lions? it had to be that ? it had to be against us?

  • Omiyale, how the fuck on a sweep do you stop running, letting your RB swing around you and get tackled?

  • If the offense can't keep moving this ball this could get ugly. They have to be patient and keep running the ball with short passes.

  • And good night. That was a PI.

  • That's the first not-good throw Cutler has made tonight.

  • fucking intereference. bullshit non call. you can't hold a jersey to stop a guy from going to catch the ball when's he's beat you on a route. it's called a penalty

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Not when you're the feel-good story of the year, evidently.

  • Ugh.

  • fucking EMBARRASSING........
    that is all......

  • Now this is when Lovie should challenge.

  • Guess it's OK for Detroit to hold on defense.

    And what the fuck? If a Bear touched the ball in-bounds, and then recovered it out-of-bounds, how is it Detroit ball? No one had possession, and last legal touch was Chicago.

    Isn't it by rule Chicago ball?

  • nail in coffin was not taking the points and then giving up a 70yd catch and then forte missing a guaranteed field goal then a 90 yd run.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    That was brain-dead. No idea why they didn't take the points.

  • OK, slobber on Johnson's knob... and then don't note that Peanut covered him as tight as you can ask?

  • we look slow

  • This is not looking good. Need a turnover and get something going. Here's wishing.

  • Awful. I guess one good quarter is all we can get.

  • game over.

  • How can they get 4 yards when everyone knows it's a run? Pathetic.

  • Not so sure you don't decline this one....

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    This is makeable at Ford Field.

  • Peanut robbed that ball out of the receiver's hands.

    The guy is plain dangerous around the ball. Underrated.

  • The Lions don't even look that good, the bears just look like absolute crap.

  • In reply to Shady:


  • Five games into the season and we're probably playing for a wild card spot. And at this rate, we'll be lucky to get one of those....

  • In reply to tobijohn:


  • how come we don't got no 86 yard plays

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Knox is somewhere else?

  • Net 10 yards...Peanut is trying his damnedest to win this game.

  • Peanut is awesome.

  • 13-21 would feel alot different.

  • Horseshit, horseshit, horseshit.

  • This is where Cutler has trouble--when the game is put on his shoulders to win, he has come through with some ugly INTs.

    Let's hope he's learned.

  • Please kill me now. Absolutely horrible. And that was an obvious neutral zone infraction.

  • Where the fuck has he been all night???

  • I would not blame Cutler if he pulled out a knife and shanked his whole O-line.

  • Another blown call by the officials. Obviously neutral zone violation, not false start.

  • but how can they fuck it up? there are two line judges????

  • Someone thought they were at a hockey game.

  • And if the fans throw stuff on the field Lions should forfeit. Easy as that.

  • how was that not an offsides call??? what the fuck is going on here?

  • Fuck. When your 5 linemen can't stop their 4 linemen TWO PLAYS IN A ROW, it might be time to fold up and call quits.

  • I sense major changes in the offseason, we look ugly man.

  • In reply to Vicp71:

    Not 6-10 ugly, but about 7-9 to 9-7 just good enough to save Lovie and Jerry's ass yet again.

  • FML

  • What's the record for false starts in a game?

    Shady, you and I are thinking the same thing.

  • Just put Hanie in and save Cutler the trouble. These tackles are a fucking joke Angelo.

  • Hold.

  • The Bears O-line is getting owned.

  • In reply to NY Bears Fan:

    Can't hear and neutral zone infractions only getting called on Detroit.

    Damn, I wish Carimi was back already.
    Stupid patellas.

  • Guys don'y blame Angelo for the O-line, remember he said noone did more than the bears? Fuck you in your anus Angelo!

  • lovie is going to have a lot of explaining to do
    and he is a man of few words

    do we have a no huddle offense
    were runnin out of time

  • This was a fucking embarassing joke. Talent or not. Blow this mother up. I'm done. Nice second half. I blame nothing on Cutler. Lovie dead.

  • i want to fucking know how that was not an offsides call? someone fucking tell me please? someone tell me how Urlachers hit with his shoulder is a 15yd personal foul. please someone tell me that.


  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    You Bear fans all sound like that cry baby Vick blaming the officials when the team is getting schooled by the opposition. Make some plays, stop some plays and then complain. The Bears suck this year. Live with it and put accountability where it belongs...Phillips, Angelo, Smith, Martz, pussy O-linemen, Briggs going into seclusion, the McMoron family, etc.

  • That O-line is a searing indictment of Angelo's tenure.

  • The way the refs are calling the game, I'm surprised Briggs didn't get called for helmet-to-helmet on that tackle.

  • i want to know why these helmet hits aren't reviewable? would that make too much sense????

  • why is the clock running when we tackle the ball carrier out of bounds??????

    nice fuckign rule you goodell you fucking cocksuckers

    ruined the game. i'm done

  • Holding.

  • What the fuck happened to Henry Melton Marinelli? What the fuck happened man?

  • Hey ref... no need to flag the guy holding Idonije around the neck, eh?

  • Is it the f-ing refs every week for you people??? God, you're all such exhausting cry babies.

  • This crew sucks.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is the difference - but they suck.
    Both teams playing undisciplined football, but just terrible
    Don't fucking do it, Roy.
    Thank you.

  • Lotta piss and vinegar in here tonight. I want to punch a baby in the face soo bad!

  • one of tonights keys was to own the line ply
    we have not

    we better fight till the last play though
    maybe overime is our best hope

  • Holy shit.

    Williams gets the 1st and doesn't make the dippy gesture. Is he growing up?

  • if he would have only said
    "eating omlette alive"

  • Wouldn't it be nice to be down only one score? Fuck Lovie.

  • omiyale is reallly bad. why is angelo the gm. it's not hard to bring in semi decent OL to replace bad OL. he had been pulled from the fucking game he is so bad.


  • webb is so bad. two plays in a row, beat like a bitch

  • Would love to hear an explanation as to where Knox has been all game.
    He get bumped down the depth chart for some reason?

  • Didn't I hear something about how Bears had the hardest schedule to start off the season and now were in our 'easy' games? (Twirling my hair into knots)....

  • Why is the clock running??? Knox got out of bounds??

  • Jay is just tough as nails.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Tough as fucking nails.

  • Holy fucking shit, our offensive line looks like a joke. Martz has to give them some help, even a chip block to slow them down.

  • webb fucking beat again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • webb false fucking start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Also Cutler looks like he'll quit after the game and tell Angelo to play QB himself.

  • In reply to christianh:

    he looks like he is going to punch angelo. he won't quit.

  • In reply to christianh:

    Now THAT I would pay to see!

  • I'm not sure what's tougher on Cutler: his shoulders (carrying the team tonight) or his balls (for hanging in the pocket under this pressure) or his temper (for not going APESHIT on his craptacular O-line).

  • You go for it here.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    No, if you had been smart enough to take the 3 points early you would... now you can't.

  • Too many dropped passes.
    Too many stupid penalties.
    Too many retarded coaches.
    Too many years of getting screwed by the refs.

    Fuck the Bears.

    Until tomorrow morning, goddamn it.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Another ref conspiracy theory by a frustrated cry baby Bear fan. Wow!

  • Gould = gold. The D has to step up now.

  • Fake the FG.

    Now you're down by 8 with 4 minutes left. Chances are good this will be a loss, but the end score won't look like the Bears shit the bed as badly as they really did.

    Instead, Lovie should've tried to WIN by going for the TD.

  • so we have a Quarterback
    we have a running back

  • Pick 6?

  • JC... I feel for you.

    Robbie... You're a good boy.

    Angelo... Go fuck yourself. Fuck your fucking fuck face you fucking fuck.

    Sorry, Jay.

    Defense, turnover maybe? Onside kick scares me.

  • Indictment of Angelo.

    Webb has 5 false starts and has given up at leats 8 qb hurries and gets beat every play.

    Omiyale did so bad he got pulled IN THE MIDDLE OF A SERIES.

  • That 3 points from earlier is looking more important now. We should have kicked the field goal.

  • Lions run the ball 3x.

    Bears stop them, there's hope.

    Chances are, they'll give up the 1st down, game over.

  • Jeebus Tittyfucking Crisp.

    Do I have a crystal ball?

    Game over.

  • With all that bad O-line play this L is on (a) the defense and (b) Lovie for not taking the 3 points. It's just so depressing to lose a game like this.

  • What are the odds we all of a sudden stop the Lions, drive the distance of the field, score a TD and convert the 2 point conversion?

  • Chris Harris having the worst game of his life.

  • Game, Set, Match.....FUCK!!!!!


  • Unreal. You KNOW they are gonna run the ball.
    You KNOW they are gonna run the ball. And you do that bullshit?
    Fuck this D.

  • and that's a bullshit penalty. He barely grabbed the pads and DIDN'T bring him down backward OR land on his legs.

    So only 1 of the 3 elements of a "horse collar," and that was barely there.

  • Do you ever give up with your keening and crying. Christ almighty, you are a child.

  • Harris is so fucking bad

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    His hammy must be toast. He's gambling.
    And VIP can't tackle for shit.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    what was bizzare about that last big run
    we knew they were going to run out the clock


  • Yeah there was also obvious holding not called.

  • Jahvid Best 2 runs have ended it. unbelievable.

  • All of those long runs are the fault of Chris Harris. He was buried behind a teammate.

  • Detroit will not throw the ball again. Run, run, run. FG. Game over.

  • What happened to "bend but don't break"?

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    You have safeties that can tackle.

  • Briggs and Urlacher had shit games, Peppers is hurt (mcl or meniscus), Harris is terrible on one leg

  • It'll be interesting to see Lovie explain this fucking debacle of a shitshow.

    You know he's going to get super defensive about his decisions and snap at some reporter for asking legitimate questions.

  • Briggs and Harris fucking screwed up agian on the same fucking run . the same fucking run.

  • Can't believe we lost to these schmucks this way.

  • Dropping like flies

  • Jahvid Best ran the same exact play 3 times for almost 160 yards. This is on Briggs Urlacher and Harris. Each one fucked up exactly the same way on the same fucking play each time the Lions ran it.

  • I have some really bad news.....our defense is looking old. The Lions are really freakin young across the board at the important positions. Unless we get some youth on the Defensive side this is going to continue for a while to come.

  • In reply to NY Bears Fan:

    Thats what happens when we make 0 moves whatsoever in the biggest free agency feeding frenzy in the history of the NFL. I can just see Angelo and Lovie talking about how we are set for another year. Why do we always have to play catchup to other franchises. We do well then regress instead of imroving.

  • WTF, lovie. There is NO CHANCE of winning this game. AT BEST Bears get the ball back with 2 minutes left and down by 11. And no timeouts.

    It's not gonna happen.

    Give up, and don't get your MVP killed.

  • You think if you're going to go through the trouble of making a sign that says "The Bears are Toast" you'd put the Bears logo on the bread and not the Lions you fucking idiot.

  • Harris should not be in there. It is embarassing watching him fuck up the same way every single run play to Best.

    Gruden is in disbelief that he fucks it up every time.

  • Painful loss.
    This one hurts.
    No reason to lose this game except for being completely undisciplined on both sides of the ball and shitty shitty coaching calls.
    Had every opportunity to salt this one away in the second half and couldn't stop a mediocre running attack when it mattered.
    Couldn't put points on the board when it was 0-0.

    It's one thing for CJ to go off and kill you. But Jahvid Best? The guy is a scrub.

  • The Defense barely showed up and the offense barely blocked.

    Sad to say that I can't believe we did not win. Jay played pretty damn good. Good night guys.

  • sadly our athletes are not that high caliber
    we have to
    admit that coaching is not going to get this group better
    we need alot of help now that t\matt toe is down with a knee peppers is out with a knee
    wooten is going to get tested
    and matbe we can buy some scrubbs to patch this season together
    and at least finish the schedule

  • It's one thing to lose a game that you actually show up in, and it's another to lose a game where almost the entire team plays like shit. It's going to get reaaaaaally ugly at Halas Hall this week with Lovie and Co. answering obvious questions.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Shady you know LDL's .....m.o.



  • how come cutler isn't in the shotgun

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    because our coaching staff our MORONS!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yay garbage time.

  • Hey Blogfader....I think the next thread should be called

    "We are all set" I am a FUCKING idiot by LDL & Glitchy...nice O-line...nice Safeties do I need to go on!? really? FUCK YOU !!!!!!

    and the seniors who have been on this blog for sometime will recognize this from me, and it proves true...WE MUST IMPLODE TO GET RID OF THIS MANAGEMENT!!!!!!!!! NOW!!!!!

  • Kneel.

    End it.

    Don't kill Cutler, in some vain hope of making this a single-digit loss.

  • Still a chance Tirico? Go fuck yourself.

  • Nice attempted spear, Vanden Bosch.


  • Does this not set some kind of record for penalties?
    Kind of wondering if this crew will be caling another primetime game this year.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    They shouldn't call a HIGH SCHOOL game.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    The penalties were on the players for the most part, not the refs.

  • In reply to Shady:

    That wasn't my point, Shady.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    The way you guys were bitching about the officiating I thought that was just another excuse. Please enlighten me to what your point was MPHAP.

  • In reply to Shady:

    My point was that the league doesn't want a crew that's going to call a record number of penalties calling a primetime game.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Pretty sure I said several times both teams were playing really undisciplined football. So enlighten me, Shady, as to what I said that was wrong?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    You said the league doesn't want a crew that calls that many penalties, so obviously you're inferring it was on the refs. As you mentioned, it was the terrible play on the field that was the reason for the flags, not the refs. I'm not going round and round on this again.

  • In reply to Shady:

    I didn't infer anything. I'm saying the league would rather have a crew that didn't call anything in a dirty game than a crew that calls everything in a dirty game.
    Full. Stop.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I said above, repeatedly, this loss is on us playing undisciplined ball and horrendous head coaching calls. The statement that the NFL doesn't want a ticky tack crew calling a primetime game is a statement about the NFL head office, not a belief we would have won this game if not for this call or that call. If I meant that, I would have fucking said it.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Dirty game or ugly game? Which one is it? Pretty sure you have to throw a flag when guys jump early or run unabated to the QB. IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE REFS!

  • In reply to Shady:

    Finally, someone with a modicum of sense. Why don't you idiot Bear fans focus on lack of competent coaching, lack of competent players (receivers, O-line, aging defense, embarassing safeties) and how Jerry Angelo has taken this franchise down with "Bushian" incompetence. At least it's just football and not a country or the world. So JA is at least less dangerous than Geo W.

  • They'd be driving for the tie here if Lovie had taken the three points. This drives me crazy. They play this bad and could still win the game if it wasn't for these completely screwed-up coaching decisions.

  • Jay played a tremendous game. And this team let him down in every phase.

  • Would not want to be a defensive player in that locker room.
    Lach is going to fuck some guys up; he was going at Briggs.

  • The shit we will hear in about 15 minutes:

  • At this point if not the Bears the go Lions. Beat the Packers.

  • So much I could say, but most importantly, I saw all that "Super Jay Shit" I've been yelling for. Our D does seem old/slow.

    Our O-line? I'm just too disgusted to think about all the missed opportunities we had to make it better the last 2 years.

    Fuck you, J.A. Fuck you. Unbelievable.

    But again, hat's off to you, Jay Cutler. We're sorry we brought you here to beat the hell out of you, but thanks for standing up and taking every shot.

  • The only good thing I can say about this game is that Cutler played tough as nails, played smart, and did more than any other Bear to win this game.

    Forte came second, and was a drop away from being co-MVB.

    On defense, everyone not named Charles Tillman or DJ Moore, start running laps.

    On offense, anyone not a WR or back, forget the laps and just go drown yourself in the hot tub.

  • At last, a cohesive comment that dealt with what really happened and didn't mention the officials once. Way to go.

  • you can't feel bad about cutler and forte's effort
    but we just are not a top tier team and we seem to be getting worse
    it has been a bitch of a first 5 games
    and we have to face these teams for the next
    8 years at this level
    we need some players
    who is responsible for this to get better
    oh hockey oh hockey i am so glad I love you cause i will need a win fix from you for the next 2 years
    we are on the decline

  • Packers fans should enjoy this b/c Lions are not threat to win the division. Bears D just looked concussed and our head coach is a simpleton.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    +1 Packers are going to destroy these guys. They are anything BUT for real.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    How are the Lions not a threat to win the division? Schedule doesn't favor the Packers, so it'll come down to head-to-head... and honestly, heads-up I think the Lions will cause problems for the Packers--that D-line will shred the Packers O-line if they're still banged-up.

    I think it'll come down to head-to-head games to decide who wins the division, and those will hinge on injuries and who's hotter.

  • That D-line didn't shred ours; our o-line shredded itself.
    The Packers in spread offense should eat their linebackers up for lunch and shit out the division.

  • I'm a big Packer fan and I'd have trouble disagreeing with your analysis. It all comes down to which O-line blocks and which D-line applies pressure on the passing game. Given the same amount of time, Rodgers will clearly outshine Stafford. Interesting times.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I'd say they are, providing Suh et al. dish out the same dirty late hits to Rodgers that they do to Cutler.

    In all honesty, I would probably take GB over DET, I hate how fucking smug the lions fans are. Kudos to GB, they have built over time with a wide array of picks. The Lions have had roughly 10000000 top 10 picks and after years of crap, think they are gods when 3 of said 10000000 picks work out.

  • not taking the points resulted in a 10 pt swing.

    Urlachers phantom penalty results in a TD instead of maybe a field goal.

    Angelo being our GM results in us not winning a superbowl in a decade even though we had a superbowl caliber D and ST for multiple years.

    Rules committee fucking up the league.

    Harris fucking done. Peppers hurt. Briggs played fucking terribly, no D line play. Urlacher didn't make any plays. Jahvid Best 150yds on the same fucking play????


    For gods sake it got so bad that Edwin Williams was in there.

    I want change now.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    but GM...Hey as LDL has said with his fucking ass-clown GM Glitchy..."WE ARE ALL SET" remember....yep. we all set to see the FudgePeckers and the Lions go into the playoffs

  • Jay Cutler is pure guts. Pure guts. Kristen needs to rub him down with some of that horse analgesic rub, because he's gonna hurt tomorrow.

    The Trib is going to torch Lovie and Jerry and Tice.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Tice is just playing the good soldier GP. It is similar to when they ask Jay if they need better blocking or players. you can't say yes even though that is what needs to be said.

    Angelo has to fucking go. This game was so fucking winnable. there is no reason to lose to the Lions.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Thanks Cutty for trying to carry this O on your's to bad you couldn't have thrown to yourself with your own passes...GP and as for the torching......fuck that I say hang the FUCKERS FROM THE RAFTERS at OHARE!!

  • I don't think ANYONE could who watched that game tonight and still think Jay is not tough. The guy did all he could to make things happen and move the ball without much of a line in front of him and a defense that played way to conservative.

    Hats off to you Jay...I feel bad...because I see the shadow of Marc Bulger on your face. Another talented quarter back ruined by an in affective O-line and shitty coaching. I don't see any other outcome at this point. We're going to ruin Jay if this shit keeps up.

  • I'm done with this.

    This is 4 weeks of inept coaching, inept safety play, inept run defence, and no offensive line.

    Next week, the opponents D-line should have to start 15 yards back from the line of scrimmage, you know, just to give Omelette enough time to waddle that 2 yards to the right where he should be.

    No shot downfield? I know Jay would get flattened, but if we are just gonna dink and dunk we might as well trade back for Neckbeard.

    Fuck Lovie and his fucking timeouts.
    Fuck Martz and his 7 step drops.
    Fuck Jerry and all the fucking rejects he has signed over the years.

    Jeff, I know you said that we have to give Webb a year, but there's no point in a good LT if the guy he's protecting is in a full body cast

  • In reply to DYLbear23:


    Couldn't say it better, except I'm not so down on Webb.

  • The majority of the pens were on him and throughout the second half (it seemed like) a lion was tearing round him each and every play. He got away with a few holds as well, which might have been caught with better officiating staff.

  • please watch the game again on TiVo and tell me you're not down on Webb. Please do that for me. I just ran through it and could tell you the results but i want you to SEE the results for yourself so you can experience it firsthand.

  • Cutler looked completely alone on the field tonight.

    That touchdown drive in the second quarter was stuff legends are made of.

    Then the reality of our offensive line and Bears receivers who can't catch crashed back into the game.

  • Harris' coverage on the Megatron bomb was so fucking bad it was pathetic to watch. Harris had an enormous hand in losing us this game.

  • In reply to Gucci Mang:

    Who really didn't have a hand at losing this one??? Jay was about the only guy I could say did all he could without any mistakes. How many false starts did we have? I think it might have been an NFL record. Pathetic..truly.

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    Harris was directly at fault for 2 touchdowns and posibly Best's second bigrun (cant remember exactly). He let Megatron get behind him on the first and took god awful angles on runs. Directly involved in 14 lions points. I think he got rushed backed too early tbh, but could Major Wrong have done any better?

  • Schwartz can shove his smug look up his ass.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    jim schwartz is a c-word

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Really? Who'd you rather have as your coach. "Show show enthusiasm" Schwartz or "Comatose" Smith?

  • In reply to Albertintucson:


    Jim Harbaugh.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    A choice between smug asshole and comatose asshole?
    I should get a couple of more selections than that, Al.

  • It is Detroit - something should be on fire shortly.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Lmao. I was making all sorts of horrible Detroit jokes with my brother the entire game.

  • In reply to A7Xthebest:

    I would feel bad about it but my parents had the good sense to move. The band wagon fans will jump off when they string together two or three losses. Most of the fans at Ford were sitting on their hands in the second and third quarters. The old school Lions fans can't afford tickets.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    best comment on this entire thread

  • Fucking Lovie, I can't stand his Loviespeak. How did no one ask him about that terrible decision to challenge?

  • That game broke the record for combined penalties.

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    How many were in the Ravens/Pack game a few seasons back?
    The worst part for this game is that there should have been at least a half dozen more.

  • To watch tonight


    There is no doubt,


    Truly was a pain



    If you're feeling dizzy


    I suspect it's because



    We're circling the drain.

  • Sadly, this marks the end of the season. If that sounds like hyperbole, take a look at the standings. The insult to our injury was we had every chance to win this game, if only we had the team to do it. The window is closing fast on this defense, and by the time we have an offensive line and a receiver, Briggs, Urlacher and Peppers will be shells of their former selves(if they aren't already). This whole shit show falls squarely on the shoulders of Jerry Angelo. For all the crap that Lovie Smith seems to take in this town, he was the one who got lemonade out of these lemons. Sure he's awful on a challenge, but he created 3 division titles, two NFC championship appearances and made it to one Super Bowl - I'll take that over every coach outside of Halas and Ditka. Had Jerry Angelo been able to draft......ANYONE, we'd have something to build on. and Frank Omyylord better get into the witness protection program because he is so damn awful he deserves to be punished for it. But then again, if we had drafted better, he wouldn't be starting would he? I'll still watch my Bears, as i always do, but the facts are clear: this season is already out of reach.


  • Sorry gents, I'm writing this squads obituary. This era is over. Rebuilding mode is back. The Bears will be shitty for the next two or three years while we restock through the draft. The Lions and Packers are young good teams with much more talent and way better coaching than the Bears. The next few years will be spent marveling when we beat a good team here and there as we persevere until a new team is built.

  • From our illustrious leader ....

    But there is no news on a potential contract for the running back. General manager Jerry Angelo said before the season that negotiations would be suspended until after the season. Angelo has remained in contact with Forte's agent, Adisa Bakari, but that doesn't mean there has been actual negotiating.

    "There really is nothing new," Angelo said Monday night at Ford Field. "We did what I consider our very best. I know that they tried as well. We weren't able to get it accomplished. He was our No. 1 priority. We spent a lot of time during the preseason trying to get it done and right now our focus is on the season.

    "I've been through a few of these and when you take these things into the season, it's not good for anybody. So I'm not saying we can't get it done ... but right now our focus is on the season."

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Irish...simple...Glitchy's best is "There really is nothing new" just another way of saying " We are all set"...Glitchy....... U FUK!!!!!

  • In reply to IrishSweetness:

    Really, Jerry??? Seriously??? On a squad with very, very few impact players on either side of the ball, that's your comment on one of two truly great offensive players on your team. If I were a Bear fan, I'd hunt you down in your sleep and kill you like the animal you are. Notice I didn't say "dog," because I f-ing love dogs. You don't deserve minimum wage, much less the 7 figures you blew Phillips into bestowing upon you,. And you're an embarassment to all your fellow Italian-Americans and our proud sports traditions. What a complete douche nozzle.

  • Insanity, Defined:

    Continuing to call plays with an empty backfield when BOTH of your offensive tackles have been reduced to turnstyles.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:


  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    reduced to Al? they started as turnstiles... they left as record-setting penalized turnstiles.

  • fire jerry angelo... tomorrow.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Fire Angelo, Fire Martz

    Have Cutler play every position. Dude is a fucking hero.

  • Well I'm gonna let this sink in. I stayed up to watch this garbage and I'm in from 9-5 today. It's 5.20am right now. Tuesday will be a fun day.

  • Here's to hoping the NBA can get there shit together. My fandom needs some Derrick Rose right about now...

    However, speaking of inept front offices...

    Fucking Chicago.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    fuck basketball willie.

    Oh, I did see Drose in a really weird bullfighting commercial though. Isn't he going to be playing in Croatia this year?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It's all I have to fill my void of optimism... That or "maybe next decade"...

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    +1 on the Drose front, but it ain't looking good.

  • btw, harris should NOT have been back. I told you guys I saw a lie in his eyes when he told that reporter he was ready. dude got an injection and a foot in the ass to get out there.

    Pep injured. Briggs wants a new lambo and wants out. our safeties are terrible.

    I won't even talk about the oline... go back and read my comments about that over the last two years and tell me I'm still whining. Fuck me man.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    What's better, Harris at 75-80% or Mage at 100%?

  • Has anyone mentioned our coaches incredible ability to adjust at halftime btw?

  • Ah, and now the reply bug rears its head. Your QA team sucks, Jimmy.

    Individual plays aside, Shady, the refs called a ticky tack game and there were numerous, numerous inconsistent calls. How many picked up flags did they have in the first quarter alone? Three?
    My point was the NFL doesn't want to see that in a primetime game.
    My point was, again ad nauseum, not that it cost us the game. The terrible play by our safeties, the god-awful game by KD and Omiyale in particular, and LDL being braindead again...those cost us the game. The officiating being terrible just dragged down the level of the game into near-unwatchable territory. They blew some calls versus the Lions and some versus us. There were enough legitimate flags to make it a shit game.

    Do you officiate at some level? I am legitimately curious. You seem to hate it more than most when anyone complains about a call. Maybe you have some observations to share on them that would help elevate the level of the discourse.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Nobody wants to see that many flags in ANY game, but it was more on the players not the refs. You see an obvious call you have to throw the flag. If the NFL wants to limit laundry games like this shit show they'd be better off keeping the Bears away from primetme, not the refs. I'm sure they were just as tired as we were at the amount of penalties. And yes it is a pet peeve of mine when people blame the refs when it's clearly on the players and coaches. And no I don't officiate.

  • In reply to Shady:

    You didn't have any complaints about the officiating?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Any complaints I might have had about the officiating are about #178 on the list of things wrong with this game.

  • In reply to Shady:


  • Nice of Steve Young to pile on with his criticism of Cutler and his footwork. Footwork?!?!
    Wtf, Steve - you out of anybody should respect a QB that was running for his freaking life and still making plays. Concussion much?

  • Also, i'm disappointed that Okoye, Toe, AA, Melton, Izzy, Pep have been so ineffective this year. China barely got hit.

    Man that was an ugly game but we fucking pissed it away to a team we should have beat.

  • I told you guys with just the font 4 we'd never get to Staffuck. I think I saw us blitz the LBs once. Once for sure from what I saw. The balls of our agressive D wee cut off when Rivera was forced to resign because Lovie is a fucking pussy.

  • font=front
    Sorry for the misspells...I'm so fucking pissed I'm seeing double.
