Chicago Bears at Tim's House of Worship Game Preview

Chicago Bears at Tim's House of Worship Game Preview

Full disclosure: I don't love the Chicago Bears this week. No one who sat in Soldier Field Sunday afternoon and watched the Bears "offense" fail to score a touchdown while starting every drive from their own forty can possibly think Caleb Hanie is going on the road, in altitude, against a better defense and beating a team quarterbacked by Y-H-W-H. If you do believe the Bears will win, which I do, it is not based on anything you've SEEN from Hanie. So...

WHY DO I LIKE THE CHICAGO BEARS THIS WEEK?

  • I always like the Chicago Bears.
  • I will say about Tebus of Nazareth what I say about all running quarterbacks; read option or not. The Bears have arguably the best, most athletic linebacking corps in the league and I believe they'll be able to keep Tebow and Willis McGahee from controlling this game on the ground. If they do it'll force the Broncos and Tebow to do the thing they least want to do: throw.
  • When Tebow has success in the air it is usually hitting wide open receivers down field in man coverage. But his delivery is too slow and deliberate to beat Charles Tillman or Tim Jennings, especially if either is given help over the top. I have little-to-no respect for Tebus' ability to beat a team with his arm and if he does so against the Bears at least we can stop all that playoff talk.
  • I like the Martz verbal approach this week, per Brad Biggs in the Trib. The Bears seemed committed last week to rushing the ball on first and second down, no matter what.  They struggled against nine-man fronts and set up difficult conversions for a shaky quarterback. This week the Bears must trust Caleb Hanie to throw on early downs or else they'll find Von Miller burying him into the turf on every third down.
  • Hanie has to protect the damn football. Tebow can't throw a ball far enough to beat the defense with a first half Hail Mary (though you'd think that would be the only play he'd want called) so if Hanie does not throw the ball to the Broncos the Bears will have a very good chance to win this game. This is a larcenous defense that has been allowing their offense to win games with minimal offensive production.
  • Here's what I would do against the Broncos: take shots. I counted three separate times Sunday when Johnny Knox had a step or two on a corner in man coverage and all Caleb Hanie needed to do was release the football downfield. (And on all three Caleb had plenty of time to throw it.) The Bears have the speed on the outside to wreck havoc against the aging backend of the Broncos secondary. Put Hanie in shotgun and let Knox, Hester fly.
  • I'd also love to see Tebus take that college garbage directly at Julius Peppers. If he does he won't be finishing the season at QB for the Broncos. Peppers executed that clothesline right in front of me Sunday and it was violent. Tebus is due to take a shot and Pep has been delivering them weekly.

The season has changed. The goals have changed. But if the Bears make the postseason now, it will be a feather in the cap of every player on the defensive side of the ball and every coach on the sidelines. It starts Sunday. If they win this game, I think they make the playoffs.Chicago Bears 16, Denver Broncos 13

  • Assuming he has more than a second to set up in the silly seven-step deep pocket, that is.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Nail on head.

    7-step drops were borderline braindead with Cutler behind center, and are full-on insane with Hanie.

  • If Hanie throws a lot on first down, we could be okay. So long as its to our guys.

  • Is this the third time the gnome code has done the swap-aroo at the beginning or is it just a redisplay issue on my browser?

  • So it would seem... lol.

    Let our Bears go forth to victory and keep the Broncos from further profit on the prophet.

  • Today's Final Jeopardy answer in the category "Numbers" is:

    "40.8"

    The Final Jeopardy Question is:

    A) What tempurature, fahrenheit, do Tucsonans consider too cold
    venture outdoors?

    B) What is Tim Tebow's Quarterback Rating?

    C) What was Ndamakong Suh's S.A.T. score?

    D) What is Caleb Haney's Quarterback Rating?

    E) On a scale of 1 to 10, how costly was Roy Williams' drop on

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    A) As a former Tucsonan, 40 degrees means "I'm not going to class".

    Then again, it was either "too cold", "too hot", or "too nice" to go to class.

    Interestingly, 40 degrees is also the temperature for which Nebraskans wear shorts.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    I was like those Nebraskans when I first moved out here (Eons ago) but after about 2 years the "Chicago Boy" Blood" acclimates and you hate when it's below the air tempurature is below 70 or the water in the pool is below 85! DAMP cold is particularly debilitating.

    "We act outraged at universities that get carried away treating football as religion yet it makes many people more uneasy to hear an NFL quarterback openly put religion ahead of football."

    Spot on, David.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    I have no problem with Tebus. I have a problem with the fans in Denver going apeshit and screaming at ownership to put in a QB that has limited skills over a player that could help them win. But it's a hard argument to make, if all they do is win with Tebus. Honestly, good for him. He could advocate the holy trinity all day, hand out scripture in the aisle at halftime, I could give a damn. Because pro football and organized religion are both unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

    Football at universities, however, marginalize other aspects of higher learning. And scholarship and academic environments conducive to advancing man's knowledge is the only thing that will ultimately save civilization, so yeah - when the knuckle dragger gets the coin over the violin major, because more people want to see the Gladiator combat than hit the symphony, it's a problem.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Exactly.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I didn't have any opinion on Tebow when he came in to the league, though I was surprised at how high he was drafted. I never saw him play in college. He got a lot of stick for being religious but I don't casre what a guy believes in. All I know is I've seen him win a few games that most ordinary mortals would have given up on. All I know is he's thrown ten TDs and only one pick with a rating of 88. He's a winner.

    I don't know about Caleb, he's only started two games so it's not fair to judge a guy on that. But I don't hold out any hope if we're going to be turning over the ball a lot.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    While I agree on pro football, it is a patently indefensible position to claim that organized religion is unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

    To cite perhaps the *least* important aspect of organized religion, the Christian church (in all its forms) has likely been the greatest patron of the Arts in Western history, and one could also present a strong case that adoration of the divine has inspired more composition than any other subject save love itself.

    As far as the influence of religion on culture, conflict, and bigotry, it is perhaps best to not open those particular cans of worms.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    He's putting religion ahead of football... how? By blending them together? By displaying his piety before 80,000 adoring football fans?

    If Tebow puts religion ahead of football, it's by an extra-point at best.

  • In reply to M Onan Batterload:

    Seem's a little hard to quantify to me, Buttsteak.

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    Literalists. You're not one of those who think the Universe was created in 6 days, are you?

    Well, I won't nitpick the final score. It's religion by a nose, or football in a squeaker, or something like that. The point is, Tebow seems to put religion and football together. He reminds me of a football mom at a high school football game, praising the lord for every touchdown her son's team scores, as if God gives a shit.

    And no, unlike Haugh, I don't claim to know what's in Tebow's heart. I'm only commenting on his public displays.

  • In reply to M Onan Batterload:

    I see how you did that.

    nitpick.

    Very nice, Buttsteak.

    I missed the advent of that nickname, though. Somebody will have to enlighten me.

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    yeah, I'm very curious about Buttsteak nickname too.

    Or maybe not...

    if you don't know where

    any road will take you there
    earnest desire

    on any path one chooses
    this magnified desire
    is what wills god's presence
    in his human experience
    and this determined desire
    is what wills his team to victory
    eventually he will have to
    throw away his religion
    and his victories
    and go back the way he came
    before he was concieved
    when he gets to that point
    his journey will end
    and desire will cease
    to plague his experience

    It's a murky road, hb. So far I've had a number of wrong turns.

    gotta love his passion

    on and off the field
    I believe his parents
    have alot to do with his
    successes

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    I was not making any accusations against the bloggers here, or about Tebow. My observations have been that many more people are more willing to give universities a pass on treating young men as athletic department animal sacrifices than are willing to give Tebow a pass for thanking his version of god on a football field.

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Broncos linebacker Von Miller practiced Wednesday with a cast covering the injured right thumb that sidelined him a week ago.

    Miller, who leads NFL rookies with 10½ sacks, needed surgery to repair ligaments he tore in his right thumb during a game at San Diego on Nov. 27. He missed last week's win over Minnesota, but said he hopes to return Sunday, when the Broncos host Chicago.

    I am reposting the link abvoe that Mike left on the last thread. I just got around to reading it and it's really interesting (good find Mike). You should all read it if you haven't already. It's about why the Texans are 2-0 with their THIRD string QB, and we're 0-2 with our back up.

    This is the line I zeroed in on: "Martz has tried, but his system is just not built for small ball, and he has a hard time finding the middle ground between his Greatest Show passing game and grinding high school tactics."

    hasn't that been the issue all along with martz, even with Jay? He only knows the greatest show on turf, when we don't have the personnel capable of running that style of O. Instead, we invariably lose 2-3 games a year simply because Martz can't change his ways. I totally get the continuity argument, but I think we HAVE to move on from Martz this year. Find a bright young aggressive OC who runs a balanced attack that takes into consideration our strengths and weaknesses and exploits them to win… not to lose.

    I am officially on the can Martz bandwagon.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB...can I carry the reigns?

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    No but you can walk behind the wagon with a bucket lobo. Hee hee.

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    I'll bring a quart of wd40, so the axles are lubed, so the bandwagon can pick up steam much much faster.

    Hanie is lousy, but he's also in a system calling plays that don't work with any of things he does do well.

    Having said ALL THAT - the little shit's accuracy and touch suck.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Follow me.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB, the problem with firing Martz is exactly like you pointed out - lack of continuity.

    IF our core players were younger, I'd say go for it.

    IF we could get Norv Turner as OC, I'd say go for it.

    The first isn't true, and the latter unlikely.

    In the 5 game win streak B4 Cutler got injured, we were averaging 30 points a game. I'd say that's pretty successful.

    I don't like Martz either, but our team isn't getting any younger. Sticking with him is like sticking to your wife in a bad marriage for the sake of the kids. It sucks balls, but you just bought a new house together, enrolled the children in new schools, and the kids are at the age where a divorce will mind fuck their brains for life, so stick it out for a year or two more, then get the divorce.

    We must remember also that Hanie was never Martz's guy. That's why he benched him this preseason, that's why he drafted LeFevour last year, than put in Collins, than drafted Enderle this season.

    Hanie is a Lovie/Angelo prospect through and through, and we all know how that usually pans out.

    Oh, and for anyone still pondering bringing in another QB off the streets, take a glance at this Martz playbook, then tell me it's a good idea.

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    Huh, interesting main point $.

    Here’s me:

    • Younger? Our O is wicked young maing. The only old guy on there is Garza, and he was a cernter rookie this year. I gots to believe we can pick up a nice shiny new actual center in the draft

    • Another fucking turner at OC? No fucking thanks. I don’t care how much better he’s supposed to be than his POS brother, NO MORE TURNERS!!!

    • Yes, the 5 game 30 point games were nice, but we had to lose the usual 3 games this year while martz refused to budge. He KNOWS we’re always successful with a balanced call, but he just can’t. We learned this lesson last year again losing 3-4 games, but martz just refused to head those lessons. I firmly believe that he’ll do the exact same thing again next year too.

    • My point exactly about Mart re: hanie/endelay… he refuses to do what’s right to make the players we have successful. Instead he sticks to his old ways and ‘his’ guys and ass fucks us for 3 losses a year.

    • He’s brutal and he’s NOT a genius. He’s a fucking stubborn fat ass who won’t bend his ways.

    I don’t know man. Mike’s question will invariably (and rightly) come up… we have to keep him unless we can find an actual replacement who we KNOW is great and who we can keep for a long long time to come. Is anyone out there available this year? I guess time will tell, but if there is… we need to dump martz and jump at that opty.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Letting Martz go will be like admitting the dreaded R word: Rebuilding.

    It's common knowledge that a new offense takes at least 1-2 years to really become effective. The first year is just getting down all the terminology, looks, check downs, etc - the second year is where it works out all the kinks and small stuff that tend to decide games.

    In two years, how old will Lach, Briggs, Peppers, Peanut, be?

    Those are our core D guys who are nearly irreplaceable (as if I have faith that Angelo could draft the next Lach, Briggs, Pepp and Peanut in the following 2 drafts).

    I think our Offense is relatively young, but Knox and Hester can't be fast forever, and Cutty will be about 30 two years from now and maybe not as spry, or finally inj prone after all that punishment he's been taking.

    Our "window" is this year, next year, (maybe even the year after that) then it's blow-up time and a new era for the Bears.

    Only guys I know of that could make the transition from Martz relatively easy is Turner, who may not want to be on a team that fired his bro and who is good friends with Martz, or Tice, who has never been an offensive coordinator before, not to mention we would lose a hell of an Oline coach.

    We gotta go down with the Martz ship, I think. Cutler said as much...

    "We're building something here," Cutler said. "If you look at the offenses around the league that are really good -- Green Bay, the Patriots, the Saints -- there is consistency there. They've been in the same system. They've had the same offensive coordinator. They've had the same receivers, tight ends, guys around them that have grown up in the system.

    "If you want to be an elite offense in this league, that's what you have to do. You can't keep shipping guys in and out. You can't keep doing different offensive coordinators left and right. It's hard on quarterbacks and it's hard on everyone to learn that kind of stuff."

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    I get it maing. My not be our choice anyway... he may fuck off all by himself.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I don't like it either MB...like I said, it's like sticking it out for a while longer in a bad marriage for the sake of the kids, or in this instance, the team.

    The problem all along was choosing Martz as an O-co. I mean, talk about a bad fit. It's like the Madonna-Rodman hook up - who didn't see that ending badly?

    But at that time, Lovie was walking the plank, and no self respecting O-Co wanted to walk it with him.

    Martz just happened to be desperate enough to take a chance, and my feeling has always been that he was just using the Bears as an auditioning tape for other teams.

    But lately, Martz has seemed to changed tunes, and maybe the 30 points a game got his jollies all warm and fuzzy, who knows?

    And I must refrain, Hanie was NEVER Martz guy, so to judge him based on his performance is a little unfair. Martz was asked to polish that turd by Lovie and Angelo, and when he whined, "Stinks too much" Lovie/Angelo responded, "He's our guy."

    Only problem with him making bail is that he would no longer be on suicide watch. He can take the bitch way out.

    I personally want him to be on trial to show the world just how depraved man can get.

    It would be a cautionary tale on many levels.

    Also, death is too good for Sandusky. He needs to be put into prison for the rest of his life, living in fear of death and rape every single time he steps out of his cell.

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    I want him to stay alive so the spotlight gets shown on all the mucky mucks that kept a lid on this to protect the PSU football program over the years.

    Once that's done, he can get carved up by some tat-freak-nazi in prison. That'd do just fine.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Unfortunately, he's got plenty of cash. The guy's gonna be sent to club fed, play golf all day, watch tv, and in general live just as good of a life behind bars as he would on the outside, maybe better. Effing system! That's the way it works though.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    The Grand Jury keeps finding victims and so there will be more reasons to put him away.

  • Wow, according the espy playoff machine, if the Bears, Lions, Falcons all win this weekend, the Bears drop behind the Falcons and will be looking in from the outside. I didn't know that.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    Kind of like me in FF2 league.

    (puts head down in shame)

  • In reply to gpldan:

    That was BRUTAL GP.

    You got beat in the final game by ONE point, Irish won his matchup, and he got into the play-offs by half a game due to a tie.

    Damn.

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    I had two games that I lost just out of stupidity. I mean, I left 30+ points on the bench.

    I let DeMarco Murray go after nabbing him early, and the day after I let him go, Felix Jones breaks his leg and I'm low on waiver priority.

    I lost AP and Bradshaw in the last two weeks, the backbone of my points.

    It was - in short - a BRUTAL fucking FF season.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Oh and I lost by that one DAMN point, when the Giants tied the game for no fucking reason and the Packers just came out and threw, and there was that one extra Rodgers point he needed before the FG.

    It was like a straight razor over the skin. Just nasty.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Don't feel too badly.

    I drafted Hillis. DOH.

    I drafted Best. Double DOH.

    Hightower. Triple DOH.

    Oh yeah, and Vick was my #1 pick.

    I let go of Lynch and R. Bush, and now they're monster (still I don't trust 'em), and like a bozo, I let go of Granowski cuz Gates came back.

    I picked up Murray and M. Bush though, and of course Tebow! Tebow! lol

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    I should clarify for the record that I am NOT starting Tebow THIS week.

    Now I return you to your regular scheduled program...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Yeah, that sucked.

    hee.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Sorry GP. You've now been officially Tebowed.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Yep it kind reminded me of when the Browns finished 10-6 and missed the playoffs a year before Romeo got fired. Not that you resemble the Browns organization in any way GP.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    yep, but we can still lose IFF atlanta loses as well… which would keep us in the 6 spot, while allowing the lions to take atlanta's 5th spot and boot Atlanta to the curb.

    So realistically, we need to root for Cam superman to beat matty ice more than the vikes to beat the lions (which is a bigger longshot).

    Realistically, we might be fucked even if we pull off the win.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    we really needed that win vs the Chiefs...

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    The Kansas City Chiefs. Tyler fkn Palko. FML.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    So we get knocked out because... A Detroit victory over Minnesota would put them at 3 & 2 in the division, while Chicago would remain 2 & 2?

  • In reply to M Onan Batterload:

    See how close this thing is. One gnat fart away from being ousted from the playoffs.

  • Cutty come back....brilliant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Zi0xiIiUBw

  • yes, agreed on the Cutty Come Back youtube link,also on the Trib. It helps with the pain of watching Hynie .... It just figures that Knox is lucky #13.

  • In reply to GuinnessPlease:

    Hynie! Mwah!

  • I think we win this game.... if Nathan Enderle comes in before the 4th quarter. I'd love to see what he can do, he's Martz's handpicked guy. Martz has a good track record finding obscure qb's, and Enderle was a better prospect coming out of college than Hanie. And he has a much better arm...

  • In reply to ALinWI:

    If Enderle comes in before the 4rth quarter - season over.

    He did NOT look good in pre-season, granted, it was a shortened preseason and he was fresh out of college.

    Hopefully, Martz changes his 'starters get all reps' philosophy and gives Enderle some reps with the first team, just in case, but Martz's too stubborn to actually adapt.

    Although, If we're inept in this game, I do expect a change at qb.

  • In reply to 4ever85:

    Yeah, Enderle isn't coming in unless we're completely toast. And losing to the Broncos would be the nail in the coffin.
    Ugh.

  • In reply to ALinWI:

    Al, where in the hell have you been?

  • In reply to ALinWI:

    Why not give him a shot? Go for it Nate. Give him the second half, we have nothing to lose by taking Hanie out.

  • Fuck Tebow.

    that is all.

  • I had to laugh at the Lance Briggs article on PFT. Quote, "Tebow is no Cam Newton but Hanie is no Tim Tebow". Ruh roh!

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    To clarify, Lance didn't say that. The author of the article said that. Not that it's false, but if Briggs had said that, then ruh roh.

  • In reply to Doc Nitty 34:

    ruh roh.

  • What is this "Scooby" code talk here or what? ruh roh?

  • Cutty come back!

  • In reply to Waffle 2.0:

    Nice! And it does the raise the question - "Cutty, can you throw left-handed?"

  • Aha. Back into familiar territory. Practically all the pickers have the Bears getting Tebowed this weekend.
