Seven Super Bowl Questions: Volume One

Seven Super Bowl Questions: Volume One

I can't get too pumped up about the hiring of a QB coach/passing coordinator. This offense is going to run the ball and then use play action to get Jay into space and let him fling the ball down the field. I also don't want to restart the "should we pay Forte" debate. Forte will be a Bear in 2012. He'll either be on a long-term contract or he'll be making more than $8 million. Either way, he'll be just fine.

The Super Bowl is coming and it should be paid the proper deference. Here is volume one of seven questions I have heading into Sunday as the NFL prepares to crown another champion that is not the Chicago Bears. (They are listed in declining order of importance.)

#7 Will either side make a play on special teams?

The Giants are only in Indianapolis because Niners backup kick returner Kyle Williams played one of the dumbest games a return man has ever played in a big spot. We often spend the two weeks leading up the The Big Game dissecting the x's and o's on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball but one muffed punt return or a well-timed onside kick or a return TD could dramatically alter the outcome. Neither of these teams has excellent specials so might one group surprise?

#6 Will short yardage failure/success make a big difference?

There are two teams playing Sunday. One has a running back bigger than most linebackers with a history of running over defensive backs on Sportscenter. The other has a quarterback who impregnated a super model and dumped her for another super model. Now if you had to guess which is the better team in short yardage, whom would you select? Brandon Jacobs has struggled so mightily in short yardage that Giants fans litter talk radio with calls for Ahmad Bradshaw in those situations. No quarterback in the history of football has been more effective as executing the quarterback sneak than Tom Brady. (Many note that it's Brady's ability to read how defenders line up that makes him so effective.) Their last Super Bowl meeting came down to a man avoiding a sack by half a foot and throwing a jump ball subsequently caught on the helmet of a teammate. Which inches will decide this encounter?

#5 When defenses go into nickel, who'll run the ball better?

Mike Francesa on WFAN in New York has done a nice job drawing the parallel between this matchup and the Giants matchup with the Buffalo Bills following the 1990 season. In that game NYG defensive coordinator Bill Belichick spent most the contest in a "big nickel" look and dared the high-flying Jim Kelly Bills to run the ball. They did, quite effectively, but the Giants were able to avoid the big play that defined the Bills that year and dictate the terms of play. The 2011 Giants are statistically the best big play offense in the game and it would be surprising if Belichick did not employ a similar tactic.

The Giants have no choice. When the opposing offense is prolific with minimal use of the wideout, a defense is forced to use linebackers and safeties to concentrate on slot receivers and tight ends. The G-men know they can get pressure with just their front four so they'll try and create confusing looks in the secondary for Brady. If the Pats go to the run, can they find success over the duration of four quarters?

The top four will arrive by Thursday morning...

  • first to say I couldn't give a smaller fuck if I was a midget... but I'll watch the game. Uh, go giants I guess?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    speaking of midgets, I watched Jackass 3.5 the other night. It's honestly pretty funny stuff, except for the gay dildo stuff... which I really don't get. Why do they find that stuff funny? I'm not being homophobic, just don't think it's funny.

    I saw it at the beer serving movie theater in Slowmaha and, a bit buzzed, it made me laugh.

    Went with the wife and a buddy and we were all cracking up... as soon as we get out, the buddy of mine was saying "that was terrible" - yet the fucker was cracking up harder than anyone.

    I think it's one of those movies that's tough to own up to enjoying. I'm proud of you, MB.

    thanks Willie, I have no shame. Just ask Shady, MBP and johnny.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Willie - i've seen MB run from a grenade and he actually screamed a little through his headpiece in sheer terror.

  • Agree MB, don't give a flying fuck about this game. Glad I will be on an airplane to Portlandia for business.

  • "Mike Brown just threw up in his mouth a little"

    Johnny, can you PLEASE call emory to explain to us what in thee fuck this team's fascination with white fucking safeties is? For fuck's sake people!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Chill out Buck ...twikitwikitwikitwiki ..... you need a ride on the Wilma train ....

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    it's like a fetish for the Bears. Ryan loves feet, Doc and Canada like bike porn and the Bears love above average white safeties that are special teams lifers....except for badass white safeties in the 80's, that was almost a team prerequisite....and you needed super gay hair or a mustache.

  • I'm sorry to go off-topic so soon in the thread but I just have to ask - Where in God's Name did the Chicago Tribune find Steve Rosenbloom and why do they continue to publish the drivel that asshat writes? God, what a consistent and total jerk....

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    His article today sucked a bag of donkey dicks. First day on the job and he already talks shit about the new GM. What an assclown!

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    So for Rosey today it was "Mission Accomplished". You read it. It pissed you off. That's what he's paid to do. Get a rise. Stir the pot. Poke the sleeping dogs. Rattle the cage. Just like the talk radio donkeys. Whatever moves the needle whether he actually believes it or not.

    I used to find him amusing but now,
    I just don't bother to read him.

    He's the smartest man...

    Nail on the head. I never read what that asshat (right on the mark too, Tobi!) writes.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I liked that one Al

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    I guess for the same reason that Bill O' Reilly and Hannity are employed - to annoy people so much that they generate their own publicity.

  • Funny you should mention those two. As I was posting my original comment, I was thinking besides Rosenbloom, if I passed O' Reilly and Hannity ( Jay Marriotti is another one) on the street, I'd probably just punch them in the face and keep walking. So I guess if their job is to get a rise out of me, they should get paid for doing their jobs. I understand Fox News stooping to that level of journalistic integrity but I always thought the Trib was above it. Guess not...

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Hate to break it to you tobi but there are no true journalist's left on mainstream news. Both sides employ whoever whistles the tune they want. If it makes you feel better to pick a couple of villain's to target then so be it but don't think for a minute you're not being spoon fed by any of them. They are all led by ideology and the truth is of minimal consequence. If there lips are moving, they're lying.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    Not sure there ever were many, Trac. Certainly Cronkite, Rather, Jennings, and all the ludicrously left-slanted people don't count.

    I guess one of the things that pisses so many people off so much about Hannity and O'Reilly (other than being smarmy little bastards that is) is that people are so conditioned to overwhelming liberal/statist bias in all mainstream news that anyone even a little on the right seems extreme to them.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    You don't have to be an extremist to be a schmuck. All talking heads are schmucks.

    But of course, you can't discuss the topic without throwing in your comments about "liberal/statists" and "ludicrously left-slanted". That speaks volumes about your own objectivity.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    It's also an interesting tactic that you have of denigrating the entire profession in order to excuse the total and complete lack of integrity that Fox News has displayed. No liberal or progressive that I know makes excuses for CBS News when they screw up but then again, they didn't engage in systemic wire-tapping/text interception of private citizens.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Whatever

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    If you think I'm inventing the whole wire-tapping and text messaging thing, I'm not. Or if you think that the FOX corporation somehow found ethics on the subject when they hit the American border, think again.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    hunti thinks the media
    is controled by
    K street lobby knockers
    they use
    "right wing" vs "left wing"
    socialist vs. capitalist
    liberal vs christian
    and bullshit of that ilk
    to keep your head
    out of focus
    corporate self interested
    egotestical whore mongeroars
    pay them no attention
    stop watching and listening
    it's easy
    it's just like not seeing bears
    as they hibernate till next season

  • In reply to The Void:

    Spot on Hunti. That's the smartest thing you've ever said on da blog.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    nothin
    absolutely NOTHING
    that comes
    from this mind
    should ever be considered
    smart
    just commentary

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    Lumping opinion-mouthpieces like Hannity, O'Reilly, Maddow, and Olbermann in with journalists is really missing the point, Trac.
    The fact that most people can't distinguish between the two is the crux of the problem. There are plenty of news sources available that reflect journalistic integrity; however, if you expect zero viewpoint from a writer then you should invent a "news computer" because everyone has a perspective. It's human. It's the blatant crap that gets shilled on TV ON NEWS CHANNELS when it's just televised talk-radio that I have an issue with.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    You echo my point but if you had stuck to just my comment rather than what you thing I was saying you could have saved space Brownie. We all have ideology whether we realize it or not. I try to base mine on fact on emotion but not always.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    Sort of - I just disagree with the premise that there are NO true journalists left on actual news programs. We just happen to be in the part of the cycle where news is vested in cooperation with the very institutes of power that it is supposed to protect us against. It waxes and wanes, I suppose.
    I'm sure there were probably people calling Edward Murrow a talking head pinko back in the day...quite a few of them were politicians though, which should speak volumes.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    humans just have
    an identity crisis
    they do not know
    who they are
    find out who you are
    and
    no more need for any language
    it is all just commentary
    on something that has
    happened already
    nothing current about it
    boring snoring sleeping
    it is all so dull and
    void of truth

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    News Computer should talk like Twiki

    Actually, there is a news computer. It's the server farm that runs Google News. All kinds of different perspectives there from all over the world.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Wasn't his name ...'Hawk'? He had a hot 'chick' too with Tarzan vocal abilities ... and a cool ride. The vampire episodes were the coolest.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I think we can agree on the for sure, Posse. When it is scarcely possible to distinguish between the news and the editorial page, it's time to seek other sources.

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    I'll never forget Hannity interrupting Ron Paul and telling him that he was going to 'school him'. Tell you what Hannity, if you score more than a 10 on the Wonderlic I'll cut my nuts off with a rusty blade. I'll spot you the zero.

  • Unless you love the NFL, this Superbowl will just be another one to you.

    The chance to see Brady pass his former hero and favorite player growing up is something that most of us dream. The chance to have revenge on a team who ruined your season a few years ago is something that most of us know.

    The chance to see Manning get another Superbowl ring to show others and to his brother that he is just as good and Hall of fame worthy is something most of us know.

    That is what makes this sport and this game the best there is. The story lines, the legends ,and the miracles. To see history be made and to tell my kids about it one day is the most amazing thing to me. No, our team didn't make it, but neither did Thirty others. Only two and there can only be one.

    How can you not care about the Superbowl? How can you forget the love of the game? I don't know. I seem to love this sport more than others. If you ever played football, you know what I am talking about. Each kid and adult watches the Superbowl for the same reason. For the love of the game.

  • +1 Artoo. I am a fan of the NFL as much or more than I am of the Chicago Bears.

  • Love it man, love it. Football doth indeed rock.

    But if Eli Manning gets in the HOF I'll cough up a nut .... how quickly people forget the 26 INTs he threw last year (or however many ...).

  • What category Irish? The most talented family gene pool ever?

  • If, and it is a big if, Eli manages to beat one of the best qb's of the past decade twice on the biggest game there is then he deserves a place.

  • I agree with you Artoo. Good post.

    This is a good NFL story. Brady is Joe Namath x1000. Namath, even when he was banging Ann Margaret, could only dream of a life like Brady has. Have you seen Brady's house?

    His house is, as far as I can tell, bigger than any non-Vegas hotel I have ever stayed in. Maybe the Chicago Palmer House and Drake have the square footage, but that thing looks like Buckingham Palace.

    His wife was Victoria Secret's prime coochie for years, he walked away from knocking up a Hollywood Star with no ill-effects (Moynahan's career subsequently tanked) and he enjoys a free ride from the press.

    If Eli guts out a win against Tom Terrific, that is the ultimate NFL blue collar vs. white collar story.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    did you guys see that acording to one media outlet, 54% of women would rather sleep with Eli than Tom?

    Jesus, what is this world coming to.... not the results, but that ridiculous fucking survey even saw the light of day.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    That's probably the lesbian 54% ....

  • I remember an interview with Archie years ago when he said Eli was better than Peyton. I was surprised by that. Should be a good game. Nice post above Artoo. Football rules.

  • Can't see it Artoo. When I think of great QBs, Eli doesn't get a look in. Just can't do it. No love for the guy.

  • Random thought at the PFF AGM today. No 1st and 3rd round tenders anymore. WR needy teams go after Mike Wallace? Cutler to Wallace?

    #Bears LB Lance Briggs & Giants DE Osi Umenyiora both want more money. Would a swap be a win-win for everyone?

    Two ideas that I want to see you guys tell me about. I actually watch Wallace a lot and he is a lot like D.Jackson but more mature. Problem? 6 foot.

    Osi..I do not know that much about him. Your thoughts?

  • IMHO Wallace is three times the receiver that MeSean Jackson is.

    Osi scares the hell out of me - Briggs may be a pain in the ass but he doesn't have the injury history that Osi does. Both of them are on the wrong side of 30 now and I don't think either one of them is as valuable to another team as they are to their existing schemes.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I rather draft for players than trade them away. If we can get a second or higher(which would never happen) for Briggs then do it.

    Otherwise, Briggs has not really over performed is contract. If he has it has been very subtle and not worth a raise.

  • "Briggs has not really over performed is contract"

    Erik, the guy might be an asshole, but he's a fucking superstar OLB when he wants to -common now.

    Give him a courtesy bump and he'll play lightsout next year. The guy is a gosh durned STUD on the FB field maings.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    He is a great OLB but we paid "and still are paying him" a good chunk of change. Unless he had a 8 sack ,3 int season, 100+ tackles then we can talk. Otherwise, sorry Briggs, you signed the deal.

    Since he a stud OLB why doesn't he sign a deal with under armour or nine? They pay a lot more.

  • Nike autocorrect, black pumas.

  • Black pumas had me crying at my desk when I first read it... Nice call.

  • I kiiinda get what you're saying Erik - we should stick to his contract cause he's been a complete ahole about it, but dude... duuuude:

    7× Pro Bowl (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011)
    3× All-Pro (2005, 2006, 2009)

    Career NFL statistics as of Week 17, 2011
    Tackles 969
    Sacks 10.5
    INTs 13

    7-fucking-time probowler 3-fucking-time all pro. Duuuuuuude. Give the guys some love to shut him up for the 2 seasons (3 MAX) he has left. When he's not throwing a contract hissy fit, he is straight up MO-NEY!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    He will make $3.75 million in 2012 and $6.25 million in 2013.

    We could extend his contract but I do not think he would like that.

    Thus, give him an extra two million this year and on the next?

    What the hell are you spending your money on Briggs? Get some endorsements jeez.

  • A man can't be expected to pay for replacing Lambos on a measly $6 milly a year, Artoo.

  • a players numbers
    are controlled by chances
    maybe he is so good
    teams play away from his domain

  • 6 foot receivers are like assholes.

    Osi sacked the QB six times in one game didn't he? He hit Cutler so hard that he tried to walk to other sideline. I'd take Osi any old day.

    But another six foot receiver .. ? As long as we get the gigantic type as well, no arguments .. .but the jump-ball dudes - we need a couple of 'em.

  • great pic...blogfader!!!! you see Democrats & Republican's can be on the same stage and be civil.

    as for the SB...who gives a flying fuck...and MB it will not be with a vertically challenge person...see how PC I am for 2012 The Mayan Death Year. ...btw that dwarf doesn't give a fuck about the SB either.

    Sunday plan for SB...hot wings, a nice rich stout, pray that cheatachek loses, then before game take a nap, wake up see a couple of SB commercial's...scratch my left testical for the first half then the right second half...hopefully some other funny SB commercials so I can shoot a couple of pretzel's out my nose and then that's it..fuck this SB...

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    This SB is as exciting as the lame ass Pro Bowl was..the only thing that I was wishing for after watching that pathetic game was having Cutty and Marshall back together in Navy Blue and Burnt Orange...yeah I know......won't happen$%#$%@!$%#!$%#!!@!!!!!!!@

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    Believe Lobo. It's our destiny. Cutty + Marshall + Burfict/Konz = NFCN champs

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    The Packers won't win it, that's all I was worried about this year once we screwed the pooch. I hope Tom gets his fourth and Eli gets broken up and spat out.

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    Here, together for the first time, Bush 1, Bush 2, Carter, Clinton xy, Clinton xx, Bono, and the Edge.

    I haven't heard anything from the Bears side that Briggs needs to go, and I would think Lack would want his wingman with him in what would be his last year (probably).

  • In reply to gpldan:

    It was planted.. By the Patriots.

  • I'm not emotionally invested in the SB but I'm pulling for the G-Men. I won't be all pissy if they lose (like when the beloved take the pipe) but I will definitely be interested. I watched about 15 minutes of the Pro Bowl and was emarrassed for Peppers. It was like watching an Old Timers Game in MLB.

    As far as the news on TV is concerned, once they had to start making money for the networks, everything went to hell.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    +1.

    I want G-Men to win, but mostly because I travel alot to Beantown and Patty fan is a smug prick.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    You should try living in WI gp. After Sunday, Jeff and the rest of us won't have to refer to the Packers as the Super Bowl Champion Packers. I love giving shit to certain friends because they are still feeling the sting of this year. Most of my friends were gracious about last year, but I still have a hit list of about 8 people I have to fuck with next time I see them. BTW, thanks for the Etta video.

  • Blogfather intones:

    The Giants are only in Indianapolis because Niners backup kick returner Kyle Williams played one of the dumbest games a return man has ever played in a big spot.

    It was one of the biggest chokes, the worst games by a kick returner that cost them the prize. But what was dumb about it?

    If anything, Harbaugh was dumb for keeping him back there.

  • For all the gloom of Rosendoom, we have beat guys writing good copy like Big Bird.

    I'll give some respect to Big Bird, he's writing good stories with lots of content and little editorializing.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    SITE THE FUCK DOWN BIG BIRD!!!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    jesus sit.... siiiiit!

  • I think it's funny that of the regulars, the bulk (myself included) are predicting a Giants win.
    A 9-7 team that just barely snuck into the playoffs beating the 13-3 Patriots in the Super Bowl...I'm sure that says a lot about the parity of the NFL and the perceived strength of the NFC right now.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Even the usual cast of over the hill insiders who just regurgitate the 'scoop' like mama bird does worms *cough cough Chris Mortensen* are piling on the Patties on the radio.

    The word is, the G-Men are a better D than the Broncos, and Tom struggled a bit with them. That's the pablum they are feeding.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    football players don't look like that any more. And it's not just plank, it's fencik also.

    But those times are gone. You have guys like megatron and vernon davis now.

    You need something more than a chris conte. Sorry guy, just still don't think he's the answer. Maybe like my desire for a A+ grade GM, I think we need an A+ grade FS too. Maybe it's my love for my handle-sake, but this team needs an Ed Reed back there to finally pull all the pieces together. Chris conte ain't ever gonna be ed reed.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

  • My quick take on emery.

    He’s a scout that’s got the big break bump. He’s a scout at heart and will do an infinitely better job of finding talent than JA.

    What’s yet to be seen is, can he help the team in the other critical areas like how do the bears finally figure out the player development issues we’ve had. Can he stop us from being the place where WRs (and other positions) ‘go to die’. Or the place that trades away the ‘bust’ only for them to bust… out once they get to their new team (see how I did that… hee hee). I don’t worry about contracts as long as stein is here, since he probably did all that for Jerry too.

    At the very, basic, fundamental lease… we have some interesting times ahead of us that hold hope for good things. If JA had stayed, we all knew we’d be in for more busted picks, unfilled gaps, and idiotic moves. Viva la change! (viva la bam.. high five!)

    Emery is here to develop a better scouting bench, and to have deep research on draft day.

    I wanted somebody to ask Emery if he was here last year, would he have grabbed Carmini with the 1, knowing about his knee problems as a Badger.

    He woulda dodged the question, but I bet the real answer is no.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    speaking of badgers... anyone up for the honey badger in the 1st if we can't get a lineman?

    I know he's small but the dude is money.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    ... you know... except for in that last game. He kinda sucked in that game.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    He isn't in the draft.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    emery has
    an intrigue about him
    his hair sort of has
    a super bowl trophy
    tint to it
    his background in life
    has prepared him for
    the now
    of our bear needs
    i like that he
    is big into
    conditioning
    ready from the get go
    and built for the long haul
    he is military
    which shows his
    penchant for war
    he is thorough and beyond
    the cards he's holding
    have the faces rubbed off
    and he still keeps them
    close to his vest
    keeps his mouth shut
    about stupid stuff
    that reporters want
    him to say
    i hope he puts
    rosenbloom's chair
    in the back of the room
    for all his pressers
    jewish reporters
    are very judgemental
    with little fact to back them up

  • proof the media has nothing better to do.

    If by shares a resemblence, they mean a 'white guy with brown hair' then yeah, totally. What a waste of fucking space.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    wtf...next thing they will do is check or ask to see his stool's to find out if he had cream corn with his steak the night before...sheesh!!!%^@!^%$@%!$!!!!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    He does kinda have the feminine aura that Tom displays.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    yeah, but in all fairness that is assuaged by the 4 SB rings (or however many)

  • Why?

  • I watched the very vanilla interview Joniak gave Emery on Da Site a few mins ago. The only thing I really came away with was how bare that trophy cabinet looked with the lone Lombardi sitting in it. For a second there, I thought I was looking at an extinct species at a museum. We really need a couple more trophy's in there gents. Nothing in the interview inspired me in that regard, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how the draft turns out before we can really begin to understand the change in the air at Halas Hall.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    It's pitiful, isn't it Trac. It's a joke. Maybe the biggest franchise in the league and we've only got one Lombardi. We have a right to be bitchy, impatient and angry. It just won't do. It's got to be next year. We need to push all-in here come Free Agency. Mario Williams. Brandon Marshall. We have the space for them and maybe one other good signing.

  • Here, here.
