  • First to say - Jeffrey Thug?

    This transaction will appear on your statement as PayPal *JEFFREYTHUG.

    The wife will be concerned.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    I second that remark!

  • So, DBB League 2 drafts tomorrow morning... We still need 2 spots filled - or, league manager (Irish?), we can make it 10 teams...

    Please, no civilians!

    In related fantasy football news - JOIN THE DAMN AUCTION LEAGUE!

    PRETTY PLEASE! With Jay Cutler 5k yd passing season on top?

  • While I appreciate that NBC payed the Olympics 18 gazillion dollars to have exclusive rights to everything stateside, we live in the wonderifurous world of the interwebzzie and I want to watch it live at 3pm Chicago time.

    Anyone know how to make that happen? Is BBC showing it?

  • Now you just have 1.

  • Where the hell is Fres and Murph!?

    Fres locked himself out of the league last year, said he would avenge this year, then disappeared!

    And Murph is a self-admitted FF-acholic!

    1 more spot...Jesus, I'm gonna have to get up at 6am on a Sat. Brutal. If you guys are lucky, maybe I'll just keep drinking all night till I have till the draft and make Rex Grossman my #1 pick...

  • Jeff why don't you just order a whole bunch of extra shirts and sell them on an as needed basis? Your whole 2 batch thing makes it very obvious that you are a playwrite and not a businessman. Better yet, sell them to stores, sell them to the vendors outside of Soldier Field. These shirts are the titties, you could make some serious dough!

  • Gotta agree Coach. I'm positive Jeff could sell a ton of these around the stadium on game days. If the Beloved play as well as most of us expect, there's going to be a zillion bandwagon fans with money to spend. I'm actually kind of dreading the thought of those fans coming on here but that's a small price to pay for a great season. Not to mention it's good for Jeff.

  • I got a fascinating letter from Roger this week. I will copy it here. Perhaps some of DBB's lawyer types can tell me why he should bother to make a public deal of this. My own feeling is liability control. Set up a 'wellness' site for many of the reasons employers set them up: to scapegoat employees if a LT illness comes up. They can say, "well, you didn't follow our wellness program, so it's your fault you got cancer and we fired you."

    Here, it seems like the same thing. Push health issues back onto the players and give themselves some out when the lawsuits for CTE roll in. But I'm interested in what DBB's take is...

    --

    Dear NFL Fans:

    The letter below was distributed today to all current and former NFL players, as well as team and league personnel. We will continue to update you on important league initiatives.

    To All NFL Personnel:

    There is no higher priority for the National Football League than the health and wellness of our players. It is for this reason that we are launching NFL Total Wellness, a comprehensive new initiative for current and former NFL players, as well as league and team personnel. Its mission is to build on our programs and services that enhance the physical and mental health of our people.

    NFL Total Wellness will empower players to make positive health decisions; promote help-seeking behaviors in connection with behavioral and mental health issues; provide education on family safety; and enhance transition programs that help players adjust to new stages of life.

    Dr. David Satcher, former Surgeon General of the United States and current director of the Satcher Health Leadership Institute at the Morehouse School of Medicine, will advise NFL Total Wellness. Dr. Satcher has already conducted 14 mental health forums over the past two years for former NFL players and their families. He will expand his role to facilitate more wellness events across the country. He also will provide online webinars on www.nflplayerengagement.com and consult with the NFL on its health programs and services.

    Leading the NFL Total Wellness initiative will be NFL executives Robert Gulliver and Troy Vincent. Gulliver, the NFL’s Chief Human Resources Officer, joined the league in 2010, having previously held senior HR leadership roles at Wells Fargo & Company. Vincent, the vice president of NFL Player Engagement, is a five-time Pro Bowl cornerback and former president of the NFL Players Association (2004-2008).

    Members of our NFL family are not immune to the challenges that all individuals face.

    One new service, NFL Life Line, launches today as part of our support system. NFL Life Line is a free, independent and confidential phone consultation service and website available to all members of the NFL family, including current and former players, coaches, team and league staff, and their family members. This type of employee assistance service is considered a model for companies across all sectors.

    The NFL Life Line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. All calls will be strictly confidential and not shared with the league office, teams, or any related entity. To find out more, visit www.NFLLifeLine.org.

    As we enter what promises to be a very exciting 2012 season, we stand by our commitment to the total wellness of our players and former players.

    Sincerely,

    Roger Goodell

    I'm sure you're correct about liability issues but at least they are trying to do something. On paper it sounds like a good program. Who knows?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    We have a "Wellness" program with my company... As far as I know, I tell them a bunch of nonsense and I get cheaper insurance.

    So, lawyer types, did I screw myself over? What pitfalls/scams should I have been looking for?

    Is that wrong?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I did the same thing before I saw your comment! But I think what's wrong is then I heard Stevie Wonder in my head singing "Slap it up, flip it, rub it down OH NO!"

    *smh*

  • I don't mean to do the whole told you so broken record thing but for fuck sake are you fucking kidding me with those 'stats'

    "2. J’Marcus Webb vs. Chris Williams (Bears LT)

    Webb has been a complete wreck for two straight years now. He allowed 12 sacks and 30 QB hurries last season, which led Pro Football Focus to rate him the worst offensive tackle in the NFL. Amazingly, he scored even lower in 2010, when he gave up 11 sacks and 38 QB hurries. Williams was moved from guard to tackle during OTAs to help stabilize the position … but will his move thin Chicago out too much on the interior?

    Projected winner: Webb
    Importance: 9"

    Projected winner??? Not the fucking Bears and their fans for fuck sake. God what a pile of dogshit that dude is. And we could find no one better to replace him? I think my 3 yr old daughter could have done better the last two years. So all of a sudden this sack of crap is going to miraculously snap into great form an... know what, never mind. My blood preassure is already dangerously high.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB Calm down my man. Give training camp a couple of weeks at least. I read today that Tice said it takes 3 years for an OL to come into his own. If Tice is willing to risk his reputation (and job) on these 2 guys, you should be willing to give them a little time in training camp.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    My big issue, canada, is that there aren't any other good options. If he does suck, then what?

    Ohhhze NOOOOOZE!

    you'll like him. My buddy from NY thinks he will not only makes the Bears squad but will be a nice contributor.

    He is a huge DT.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    Brian Price will fight him for that final DT spot. Price should win out if the hammy's hold up.

  • Earl Bennett beats Kelvin Hayden for a long score in a one-on-one drill. #Bears

  • Spectacular Brandon Marshall leaping grab over Tim Jennings followed by deep ball to Earl Bennett. Good start for the passing game.

  • C'mon baby Zaidman...

  • Crowd going crazy every time a WR makes a nifty catch. Tim Jennings turns to fans and says, "We play for you too."

    oh jesus.

    First, ""which consisted of 16, 110-yard sprints with a 45 second rest period between intervals"

    Damn, that doesn't sound at all fun. 6fuckingteen!?

    Then there's this, "But after finishing only four sprints, Price heard and felt a sickening pop, which was extremely painful."

    Uhhhhh... how can that at all be good? Thank god it's conditional. Poor guy.

  • Hester appears to be okay. Doing some light jogging

  • Oh c'mon....since when does Wright hit anyone and THEY get hurt??

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Piecing together the tweets, it sounds like they were worried about a concussion...c'mon D - we know you can hit; save it for the season.

  • Hester said he tweaked ankle in collision with Major Wright. Played it offl. ``Just going for the ball. Just something that happened.'

  • Good thing Roy Williams is still available, just in case (Sarcasm font)...

  • Aaaaaaamd I was completely wrong.

  • maybe Skunk tripped over Majors endowment.???????......... I'm just saying

    .......... you never know what's rolling in the grass and then you have poor footing over it slip, tweak the ankle.....

    Which draft did that happen in? Are you sure it isn't one that got cancelled??

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    what? that sounds off.

    I was looking forward to playing your WakeyBakeys...

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Huntin don't take it personally. There is probably some type of tech glitch. I've never once read a bad word about you on here or read a snarky post directed at you. Not to mention it's fantasy football and has nothing to do with this site. Hope you read this and stick around.

  • @#$%! having families, I missed my own draft! Matt Stafford in the second round !! Cutler was avaialble !!!! @#$%! Meg Ryan is my backup @#$%!

  • http://memegenerator.net/instance/24093764

  • It won't happen...but if Phil Emery was to pull it off. I would consider him family.

    Right now the Steelers are pretty much done with Wallace and Wallace has made it clear he is not showing up to camp.

    That being said, the most that the league has said that the Steelers could get for Wallace is a 4th round pick because whoever signs him has to sign him to a new deal.

    Like I said, it's a dream. A very big dream but..Emery could pull it off. Don't ask me how. I still don't know how we got Marshall.

  • A 4rth, that's it? Wow.

    We'd go from having NO WRs to being set for the next 5 years with Wallace.

    Steelers would also like to get him out of the AFC too.

    However, Wallace supposedly wants Megatron/Fitz $, that's $100M.

    His stats actually are comparable, but he's purely a speed guy, so if his knee goes out or something, that's money down the drain.

    Huge risk/reward.

  • He wants Vincent Jackson type money. Not Megatron/Fitz money.

    I doubt we could pull it off but it would be a fantastic feat.

  • There's no way in hell our cap can squeeze a contract like that into the mix. Melton and #54 are up this year and Cutty next year. Plus a whole bunch of other guys. It's nice to dream but that just isn't going to happen.

  • Dang Emery"@BradBiggs: Before trade for DT Brian Price, #Bears considered deal for an offensive tackle. Tribune story http://trib.in/P1CkCs "

  • #Bears WR Brandon Marshall down on field, but walks off with trainer

  • Emery is a real GM, of course he looks at options other than the ones that make the headlines/deadlines. Getting Otah would be a huge mistake. Emery knew it and went for the better option.

    Packers dead.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    Maybe it's because Numb Nuts was such a boob but Emery constantly impresses me as a guy who is up to the task. Seems like he's always open for business.

  • If Marshall, Cutler, Urlacher, Peppers don't make it through camp i will find a sword and i will fall on said sword.

  • Marshall back and fine. This season is going to be legit...

    Imagine a real game..the stadium will be rocking"@ZachZaidman: Jay Cutler just hit Brandon Marshall on a bomb. Crowd of 10,000+ going crazy.

    Sean Jensen ‏@seankjensen
    Someone get a fire extinguisher. Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall are on fire. Several deep connects

  • Tight end Evan Rodriguez continues to look good catching the ball.

  • I guess everyone went out and got drunk tonight.

    I might seriously be worried about our safety's.

    If Marshall is tearing them up, and I am not taking anything from Marshall, then we might be in some serious doo-doo.

    Not too serious just yet but man.. IT could be a long game if we can't stop the deep pass or pressure the qb before he gets the deep pass off.

  • There are maybe three DBs in the entire NFL that can cover guys for a long period. Pressure is the key for every defense in modern professional football.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    while it is very early... please stop that dave. This is our secondary maing... can we all please stopthe bullshit.

    when you don't properly address an area for years, it comes back to bite you in the ass. period.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    There are 20 QBs in the league that can kill any defense if they have time to throw. Simple truth, period.

    While yes, it's early, there are many Bears fans completely enamored with the new possibilities that Marshall, Jeffrey, and the lack of Martz bring to the team. It the passing really really is "all that", just how good do you expect the Bears secondary to look against them in drills? Especially with the QB is being protected even more than in the regular season?

  • Artoo -

    Back from Double B.

    The safeties don't really get involved in these early camp days. And the corners are playing way, way soft - not trying to disrupt timing on new wideouts getting used to Jay.

    They will continue to play soft-ish for the Broncos. Conte wasn't ranging, he was sitting back there working his reads and talking to the DB coach after each snap to verify what he was seeing.

    Hayden got lit by Marshall, but anyone would. I wouldn't worry about it right now.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    All right. I guess we will see more come preseason time.

  • Nobody covers our boy - he'll make the safeties better if anything. I see James Brown et al are eating McLellin's lunch too ....

  • Needless to say.. the Chemistry is there for Cutler and Marshall. We will be scary if we give our quarterback time to throw.

  • http://www.chicagobears.com/multimedia/multimediapopup.asp?mm_file_id=3077&play_clip=Y

  • Since I was on this topic one post above... yes, unfortunately between angelo and the magic tice, that is a HUGE if.

    Just pray young man, pray.

  • GP's report from Bourbonnais

    I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon downstate, watching the Bears practice today. Photos included here:

    http://photobucket.com/BearsCamp2012 

    First things first, Biggsy - he doesn't like to be photoed. I tried to ask Hub's assistant for a photo, she said "sure" and then blew me off. DJ Moore stopped by our bleachers and shook hands and signed a football I brought, so now I have a lovely Bears football with #30's signature. I told him he's wearing a proud number, he just smiled.

    Once practice started, a few noteworthy items: Pringles has switched from #27 to #21. Johnathan Wilhite has #27 and plays corner, he looked quite good. Pringles looks to have been sent to 2nd team, the Bears played Conte and Steltz all practice at safety. Pringles actually didn't get much PT.

    Spencer appears to be gone from today's practice, he is on camp roster. Adrian Cole was injured and didn't play. Bears played 2nd year Cornhusker Ricky Henry at 2nd string center a lot. Guys who sat next to me were at last's night's timed 11 on 11, and said Marshall went deep and torched Kelvin (get it? torch? Kelvin? Little Chem class humor there) Hayden a few times. Marshall made some great deep grabs, dropped a few sideline routes in front of us he had to slide down and grab low. Sanzenknicker caught all the really hard low fastballs on sideline routes, but dropped a slant-in and had to drop and give 'em 50 after practice was over

    Chicken Dinner was manhandled. No other way to put that. He looks like a slightly smaller Lack out there, 99 is clearly not the guy's number I have no idea why he would accept it. Chris Williams made him look foolish, I have a picture up of McCellin getting tossed about. Izzy then stepped in and rolled over both Webb and Cookie.

    It appears Evan Rod will play offset I and then slide out to the SE position. He has serious speed for a guy his size and caught the deep ball twice to big applause. During the OL drills, Melton's motor was over-revved. He jumped offsides about 3 times in a row with Henry snapping, until the coaches yelled "Come on Man!" to him.

    The Thomas boys: #97 - JT Thomas looks finally ready to play backing up Briggs at Will. Looked quite good, fast and rangy - I was thinking of Jamar Williams all over again. Devin Thomas looks to be the 4th wideout on this team wearing Roy's old #11. When I saw #11 trot out on the field, I audibly said "oh no", and then saw it wasn't Roy.

    Toe simply plowed Chico Rachal over several times at LG. It appears LL has moved to RG, alongside Cookie. My vision was blocked for the far end wideout drills, but I could see that Jefferies made an endzone 1-handed grab up high that made everybody cheer. We have a lot of talent at wideout this year, it's very weird. Bennett caught EVERYTHING even near him. It's hard to understand just how hard it is until you were as close as I was watching these NFL balls come zipping in. It's like picking a projectile out of the air, like catching a civil war cannonball shot from a cannon with one's hands. Hester caught every punt and Podlesh boomed a couple deep.

    Knox walked past us. He walks with a limp. He looks small, I have a pic of him up. I feel really bad for him. A few people clapped and said "hey Johnny" but mostly we just stayed quiet. Quigley looks no match for Gould, Gould got big applause for hitting a 60 yarded with little effort. Or maybe he just makes look easy. THe only other play of note I saw was that #93, Thaddeus Gibson - had big rush from the RE spot. I'd play him or Chauncey Davis before I'd play the Dinner. He'll make the squad, of course, because he's Emery's first big pick and all, and also because Wooten showed no enthusiasm. Wooten stands around like he'd rather be doing anything else except playing football. So that's one less end trying to compete.

    That's all I got. Great weather and DJ was very cool to sign my ball. Bear down.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I meant Sunday afternoon.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Another correction - the OT that stonewalled Dinner was not Cookie. It was James Brown. Brown, #78, actually looked really good out there. He's very big and it was hard to tell practice jersey 73 - Webb - from 78, Brown. He's about the same size.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I saw Brown's combine, and he looks like he has really great feet (to mirror DEs). He also might not be 6'7, but his arms are long (again, good fro an OT to keep DEs from blowing past).

    The biggest worry I had about McClellin was his size/strength, and these initial reports of him being stone-walled only make me even more concerned.

    He has speed/burst/agility/motor/hands/instincts, but is he going to be one of those players that once engaged is swallowed up?

    Hope not.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Thanks for the report. Bennett catching everything - no surprises here. Gee, did I say that before?

    Bought my daughter a Bears jersey for this year at the sports bar. #80. Betting she'll be the envy of the place by season's end. Earl is the man, and that ain't no shit brothers. Was gonna say "and sisters" but we're without here. A pity.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Earl's the fucking MAN!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDOal4joYyI

    see!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    lol. I had that coming.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Excellent report, GP. I was wondering about Knox, sounds like a sad sight, would be nice if he got back into playing shape somehow and got back out there. Also,why no pic of you? I've been reading this blog for quite a few years and am interested in what all you folks look like in the real world. Great report!

  • In reply to ben in norcal:

    Sorry, I was more concerned with getting photos up that people would care about. I have a shot in there of Carmini. You can see how slim he is, he moves well on his knee and handled Izzy pretty well - but it was hard to tell because they really didn't have the motors running.

    You could see the unspoken rule in action: first string could dictate how hard they went: guys on the bubble had the motor running. DB coach yeled at Wilhite, "Jon calm down".

    Last notable: Lovie let the 3rd string off the leash at the end of practice: full tackling. Greg McCoy laid a pop on Brittan on a crossing route. Cornellius Brown put Armando Allen down pretty hard. In the OL drills, Rahal got chippy and shoved somebody on the DL, I think it was Pressley.

    I got into a discussion with some hardcore fans in the stands, guys who clearly live for Bear football. The stands and pretty much everyone there is not high on Chicken Dinner. Dinner is not getting any love. The theory seems to be, as whack as this sounds, is that Emery picked up him just to keep the Pack from having a guy who would upgrade Hawk and could play Matthews spot.

    Maybe that's full of shit, it's crazy to think you would essentially waste your pick as a chess move against your rival - but I think that's a sign on how people feel on this guy.

    I stand by my theory that this is all smoke, and he ends up a LB before this is through. Or bust.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    If Lovie gets fired then he will become a LB. Emery picked Shea as a decent player who can play in a 3-4 or 4-3.

    We were going to draft another DE before the Seahawks took him of the board. So... Time will tell.

  • Artoo, I agree completely. Bruce Irvin was going to be a Bear. People are talking shit about how small he is but he is a fucking beast at DE even at 240. I hate to say it but the Pack got a badass DE or OLB in Nick Perry from USC. That guy is going to be a solid player for the Pack.

    Bruce Irvin/Nick Perry/Chandler Jones were the guys that I wanted to see on the Bears in no particular order. We got McClellin. I hope he does well.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    I wanted Mercilus - and the initial reviews of him have been stellar.

  • This is something a friend sent me that a guy posted on facebook. I'm sure he got a lot of positive feedback from "Happy Valley", "Success with Honor" University. What the fuck is wrong with people?

    "To Rodney Erickson, and the rest of the Penn State Nation, I hope that this status goes viral so you will someday read it. I am a Wounded Warrior, wounded in combat by a gunshot wound through my pelvis. I have never asked, or tried to hide my scars or have them removed. Why? Because they are reminders of who I am and what I've done. All those things I've done may not have been good, but I am man enough to accept and face that. You should be man enough to face your past. We do not remove the Lincoln Memorial because he started the Civil War, rather we leave it as a reminder of the good he's done. To some, the statute may remind them of the Sandusky Child Molestations, and I understand that. However, how are you to move forward in this life if you do not know where you've been? We study history to remind us to not allow it to repeat itself. Some have said that no man, coach, or player is bigger than the school. I disagree, because all the administration has done is prove that Joe Paterno was Penn State. Joe Pa lived for the school, and had the backbone to stare adversity in the eyes, and was able to put blinders on to ignore what the media and speculators said, to do what was needed. Even until the day he passed away, Coach Paterno lived with gracious integrity and still to this day, has been the only staff member to admit he was wrong. And if this status goes viral, all I ask is that the school be punished through a conventional process, not the court of public opinion. I also ask that ESPN give a sincere and public apology for dragging the school, Joe Pa, the victims, and the fans, alumni, and families of Penn State through the dirt by giving an unfair and completely biased, opinionated report. Much like my scars will always make me who I am, Joe Paterno will forever be Penn State." on Penn State's timeline.

    he probably thinks Kate Upton is "alright, I guess".

  • In reply to Waffle:

    i judge everything and everyone on how they would respond to Kate Upton now. It's easier than explaining why that guy is a total piece.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    Good call. Hence forth, "not hot for Upton" is considered valid shorthand for "has head up own ass so far it violates classical physics".

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    excellent

  • 64,369 people on Facebook currently like the post I copied above. Gp might have been right about the "Death Penalty".

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    I think his post is full of false equivalencies. And since he's a wounded warrior, nobody is willing to call bullshit on him.

    When he speaks of all the things he's done, some of it might be bad, I wonder what he's talking about. Atrocities? Cause getting shot isn't really something to be ashamed of.

    And Lincoln didn't start the Civil War, either - so he's not much of a student of history. Paterno, however, deliberately decided the reputation of football was more important from stopping a coach from raping children. That puts a fairly large gap between himself and Lincoln's lapses in judgement.

  • good report and picks GP, thanks my man.

  • fucking ghost. Dude looks big.

    Where's clutts?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Clutts was there, sorry if I didn't get a pic of him up.

    Clutts isn't quite as big as Unga, but faster and smoother and catches very well. The scary thing is seeing Michael Bush. Jesus Christo he's as big as Clutts and twice as fast. I was having visions of the time I saw Herschel Walker in person.

  • Saw this comment on ESPN boards.

    "Who got the better DT this year? Bears or Packers...

    Senior Season

    Brian Price - 43 tackles (22.5 for loss) 7 sacks -2 FF - Cost- 7th round pick

    Jerel Worthy - 30 tackles (10.5 for loss), 3.5 sacks - Cost- 2nd round pick"

    Here's some highlights of Price and why he was regarded so highly coming out of the draft.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irQMYESMEaY&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PL3DB411D5D7935BCC

  • For a 7th round pick I like picking up price. He is a big question mark though. Personal problems and a nasty surgery that could make him Tommy Harris 2.0. He had 3 sacks last year even with bum wheels, so who knows, could be a monster bargain which I am hoping for.

  • In reply to JAB1:

    A 7th round pick is essentially free.

    If it was Glitchy, he of giving up a 2nd for Gaines Adams, the Bucs must have been laughing all the way to the bank on that one.

  • Price punching that rookie was stupid but I do like this article on him. Sheds some light on what the dude is going through in life @ the moment.

    Welcome to Chicago, Brian.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    I want things to go well for him so he can continue his career and so he can provide for his sisters kids.

  • In reply to OsosFan:

    No one has fixed their secondary issues in our division.

    Cutler is going to be destroying our rivals this year. I am telling you..watch.. MVP.

  • MVP, maybe. Pro Bowl: Most deff!!! Do yo think I should take him as the #1 QB in a draft???

  • In reply to OsosFan:

    Speaking of draft - Hop in LA LIGA DE AUCCION!

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    lmao. I'm a noob maing. I wouldn't know what to do. I did a yahoo one last year and got third place my first try which was pretty legit.

  • In reply to OsosFan:

    "That's the beauty of it! I pick a league, and I draft it.. and then I kick the shit out of it!" - sung to the tune of the father's dog-catcher bathroom rant, from the documentary Friday.

    It's free, and there's no better way to learn than with no cashish on the line. I got my feet wet in a $40 league last year, and absent a few deals, got kind of beat up.

    Try it - you might find that you love it.

    Email dylmar1@gmail.com and let him know you want in.. so far we have 5/10 teams filled. If nothing else, you're doing me a solid. It comes back in spades.

    so... are you a professional pimp, or did you just stay at a holiday inn last night?

    BOURBON AND BACON!
    BOURBON AND BACON!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Willie, there's an Irish Bar that's a fifteen minute walk from me in La Crosse that has free baskets of bacon during happy hour. The Bears bar across the street has $2 16oz beers on game day. If the Bears have a big victory, I'll stop at another bar for some Jameson shots, about 4oz each, for $3. Then I'll stumble home with a big smile on my face.

  • I am sooooo happy we had a bad season last year.. otherwise we would still have this guy..

    http://www.reddit.com/r/CHIBears/comments/xdj8q/anybody_miss_this_guy/

  • When the Broncos come to town next week, guess who will get the majority of PT? I'd be shocked to see Manning even complete the first drive.

    Then, you might think Osweiler will come in. He's the rook and heir apparent. But he's a rook, and likely to not play past the 1st half, esp. if he starts fucking up.

    The entire 2nd half will be Hanie. Maybe Weber gets in there, but I think we will get a heavy dose of Hanie.

    So, how do you greet him? The fucking loser did totally blow it in spectacular fashion, unable to win one game in four, like a Eunuch dry humping Kate Upton he had nothing to show for all his flopping around.

    OTOH, he's the reason that Jerry is gone. Strangely, we need to thank him.

    It's all so complicated.

    I was actually griping that Emery didn't draft that guy. Emery probably knew the guy was a sleepy head and what brand of corn flakes he prefers...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    That kind of shit blows me away. I would be so fucking pumped I probably wouldn't be able to get to sleep the entire night before my first NFL camp. Clown.

    That plus, personally I'm a morning person and never understood how people can sleep so late and piss away so much of the day. I guess there are just as many people saying the same thing about my nights when I have to get to sleep by 10:30 or I'm a zombie the next day.

    Mmmmmm... cornflakes. extruded artificial corn mulch goodness.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Damn MB... some of this shit scares me. So 100+% with you on the morning thing. When I used to cycle regularly (and now when the fugues occur to me to do so), I've got 3+ hours in by 10am. And so many people are still wiping their eyes and swilling coffee.

    Well, at least ol' Ben Franklin was in our camp!

    "A female shark usually starts with 50 pups in utero from two to seven different dads. The shark fetuses will then begin duking it out inside their mother, eating their potential siblings. In the end, the mother usually gives birth to two pups, one victor from each of her uteri. In this way, most sharks are literally natural-born killers."

    we are such pussies compared to sharks.

  • this is the only interesting/god nugget from 5 pages ofKing's garbage (which I didn't read):

    9. I think one of the mysteries of this NFL summer is the continuing unemployment of Plaxico Burress. The man's good enough to contribute to an NFL winner, and at the right price ($1.5 million a year plus a heavy incentive for eight touchdowns is what I'd offer). I believe strongly he'd win a game for a playoff contender this year.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Dude, we have Alshon. He's a young version of Plax. Last year I wanted Plax, but that's cuz we had midget madness at WRs

    This year, we have B-marsh, Alshon, and a 6'5 230 UFDA in Chris Summers...not to mention two 6'7 TEs...

    Never thought I'd ever say this, but we're good at WR.

    Mike Wallace is the only other WR possibly available that interest me...

  • dude, really... a proven vet, practically for a coke and a samich?!

    Yes please.
