Questions Following the Third Meaningless Game

Questions Following the Third Meaningless Game

Friday night's Bears v. Raiders was rendered particularly meaningless by the ineptitude of the the Oakland roster. I don't value the events of preseason much at all but is that really the extent of the Raiders team? I was set to pick the Jets as the winner of the Clowney sweepstakes but I am flip-flopping.

Pertinent questions from last night:

  1. Is Marquess Wilson going to make the 53-man roster? You rarely see a seventh-round selection given first team reps in the preseason unless the coaching staff intends to carry him on the roster. Was this simply to compensate for the absence of Earl Bennett or is this going to be the surprise development of camp?
  2. Has Michael Ford done enough to usurp Armando Allen on the depth chart?
  3. Do the Bears survey the cuts landscape for a viable backup quarterback option or are they committed to this Josh McCown stuff? McCown is not a viable NFL quarterback.
  4. Fendi Onobun can't catch. Can the Bears really keep a tight end who can't catch on the roster?
  5. If Jonathan Scott finds his health in the next week or two is there a spot on this roster for J'Marcus Webb? Webb has been relatively unimpressive in his work with the 2's over the last few preseason games. (I never thought Webb wouldn't make the team. Now I'm not so sure. Word out of Bears camp is they want Scott on this team.)
  6. When will my love affair with Kyle Long - which began prior to draft night - end? I love the way this kid plays football. Bears haven't had an interior lineman this ferocious since the late 80s.
  7. I assume the Joe Anderson stuff is over?

Monday comes my 50 ruminations and predictions column. It's ridiculously long.

  • First to say.
    1. yes on Wilson
    2. Ford is on the roster
    3. McCown Sucks
    4. Why not we did not have a TE that could catch last year
    5.Webb should be gone
    6. Long is my new Man Crush
    7.Anderson is gone

  • The black unicorn looked like he actually had hooves as well.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    he's evil.... or fast? I don't get it?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Can't catch the ball without opposable thumbs.

  • Enough with the "Meaningless" thread titles already.

    What is truly meaningless are the titles themselves are.

    Yes, the Raiders stink. Chargers too.

    But do you thnk the Bears would have done what they were supposed to and dominate if this were a year ago?

    Too many drops. 5 or 6 in that lst half?

    Nice to see you, Alshon. Stay healthy, son.

    Spreading the ball around looked it had a negative effect on BM and gave him a case of the drops.
    Like Delilah cutting Samson's hair.
    Probably
    "Meh, pre-season #3 and I'm not interested tonight."

    Jon Bostic knows he HAS to be better against the pass. WAY better.

    It won't be this easy on Sept. 8th, even in Soldier Field.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Bostic needs film room time, and lots of it. His snap read is usually wrong, note how his first step is nearly always retracted. He doesn't know what Urlacher knows.

    I don't know that Briggs and Anderson have the speed to shut down running QBs. They will have to rely on smarts, knowing where the play is going. Luckily, we don't face a running QB in Dalton Week 1.

    I watched to see how many pancakes or clearing blocks Onabus made, because the guy has to be getting this many looks for a reason. Alas, I just don't see it.

    BM dropped three easy passes. Don't know why, he just looked out of sorts. Maybe we might see bad BM this year, I hope not.

    Wilson is a long ball hitter. He can drag safeties back, allowing Alshon and BM some big YAC. Since Hester is off the O, and since we have a solid slot guy in Weems, I just don't see how Earl makes his way back after this concussion. I like Earl, but he can't stay healthy and WIlson has 4.4 speed in a 6'3" frame and can make the deep ball catch.

    Joe Anderson is still getting it done on specials.

    JT Thomas is playing the wedge buster this year, and I like his speed - but I would put K. Greene out there at Sam long before I would even consider having JT play any ACTUAL defense. Because he's not very good at it.

    Trestman has told Dinner he's got to hold contain and tie up his tackle and the lead blocker when the run comes to his side. You can see him in there, all 250 pounds of him (with pads) fighting under the pads of LTs that swallow him up, fighting to break arm holds and get to the fullback to the LB can square up in the clear. He's just too small.

    The kid has heart, but he's not a DE in the NFL. Before long, we will see him in Jumbo packages, where they swap him with somebody like Washington, and let him stand in the sugar slot as a 5th lineman who can drop out and cover the TE or come on the blitz. Wait and see. The idea was to make the kid into Clay Matthews and make LTs have to open their stance up quickly and slide out, and that works with NASCAR package - it lets Wooten swim the guard with no backup for the guard - I get the tactic, but if they call run or draw and the tackle gets ahold of Dinner - it is OVER for the kid.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    How does JT make the roster? Costanzo goes?

    DJ must start at Mike. Bostic had some nice exposure PS, but that's all for now. It would be nice to see him come in on running downs and Wright coming off.

    Spell Anderson for Greene when we've run the score up on somebody.

    Maybe Chicken D gets traded to a 3-4 team? If not, then move him to the LB room.

    At 6'4 265, we need to get Washington's hand on the ground and spell him with Wooten and Peppers.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Chicken Dinner is a situational pass rusher, period. Emery knows this. Trestman should too. I don't think you'll see CD lined up at DE on anything shorter than 3rd and 5.

  • Ford is an usurper.

  • Nobody talking about Isaiah Frey's pick?

    That was a nice man-2-man pick. He didn't slide under another zone and surprise the QB - he bumped and ran and just muscled his man off his hip and made the catch.

    Also, no penalties until the false start.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    He's been doing it all camp. Wasn't he a 7th rounder?

  • 6th rounder. The 7th rounder was cb Greg McCoy, who is on the Vikings roster last I seen.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Yeah, but it was also one of several REALLY crappy throws by Flynn that will likely elevate Terrelle Prior to #1

  • So, did I miss anything?

    I went on a date and watched "Elysium" - movie is a dramatic version of "Idiocracy" with some rather shallow political-philosophical undertones, but it was either that or watching Marky Mark and Denzel.

    I caught a little of it late night on reruns, but by then it was already like 26-0, and it wasn't even halftime. I couldn't believe it, then I remembered it was the Raiders.

  • Yeah, Elysium was a nice idea, kind of ho-hum though. It's the second movie from the director of District "I focking hate prawns" 9.

    I was psyched by what is supposedly vanilla offense we're seeing. The line opened holes for Bush and he walked in from 10 yards. There were 5 drops in the first half(didn't see the second) and Cutty could have done anything he liked otherwise. Jeffrey looked good. IS Slauson sharing the 68 jersey ? There was some dude wearing 68 throwing flying blocks around. We rattled a bad line with our D-line, but we dealt pretty well with the blitzing when Cutty was in (the Raiders D-line isn't very good though). Cincinatti's D-line will be the test.

    Watching Theismann here describing the Sex Cannon, "Rex Grossman knows exactly where he wants to go with the ball."
    Maybe Joe, he just can't get it there though.

    Now Jefe ....

    1. I say nay nay and thrice nay to Wilson if it means Tolliver isn't suited. He's a skinny rookie who cannot help us win a Lombardi this year. Lombardis. That is all.

    2. Ford is probably our best running back and probably our best return man at this point.

    3. We need two new quarterbacks. One Randall Cunningham type, one white-boy pocket passer.

    4. We've been doing it for years.

    5. I can't believe he survived his rookie year.. Keep him until his contract runs out as a desperate measure or for goal-line situations.

    6. Long is an animal. Can you imagine we had a htird round pick this year and Schwenke was in there with him throwing fuckers around? Damn.

    7. If it's Anderson or Double-T ....

  • Not more idiocy on Ford being better than Forte... certifiably nuts.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    yes, i think we've already established this as of late... that said, we still loves us some irish

    I cain't quit you irish.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Ditto. If healthy, Forte may be a fringe player in the MVP discussion by mid season. C'mon Irish. You crazy.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Early days, but we'll see. Exhibit A. 2:13 in where Ford does a double spin move and then scores. Ever seen Forte do that? Matt wouldn't ever have the idea to do that.

    http://www.chicagobears.com/multimedia/videos/Highlights-Bears-Raiders/185956d5-8683-40c0-8311-6b22a5eccc50

  • I've seen Matt Forte score...what, 35 all-purpose TDs in regular season games.

    I like Ford, but dude, you've got to be kidding. One move out of Madden against practice squad guys from the freaking Raiders doesn't necessarily project to a HOF career. And it definitely doesn't make him a better back than one of the top 5 guys at the position right now.

  • Holy Schnikies, Grossman is as terrible as ever.

  • Listening to some of the game on the radio, it sounded as if he wasn't doing too bad. I'd rather have him as our backup than the scrubs we have now. Rex is our backup! Has a nice ring to it don't you think. Don't forget he's a Super Bowl starting QB. Yuk yuk.

  • He had a +95 qb rating today.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    He threw one of the most horrible passes you've ever seen. A Grossman-underthrow special. Free agency beckons, and no thank you.

  • Geeez Irish, the guy threw for 171 yards 1TD and 0 int, and played 1 quarter and 1 minute into the second. I dont know what your definition of terrible is, but that looks like some good Rex to me.

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    Awesome. I'm happy for him.

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    I wrote that after his woeful pass ... he wasn't that bad afterwards in fairness, but he still throws those terrible passes. Like Marino said, you can't teach accuracy. However they showed RGIII's ratings in various situations e.g. play-action and in four categories he was either at the top or near the top of the NFL with 120-130 ratings.

  • Huh? What game were you watching?

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    This one :

    http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2013082400/2013/PRE3/bills@redskins#menu=highlights&tab=recap

    47 seconds in. Off his back foot and everything. Tell me he's learned anything in his career.

  • Looks like Cutler, Forte, and Garza will be the only offensive starters left since Emery took over. Me likey.

    The Bears could possibly have 8 rookies on the team this year. All 6 draft choices plus Ford and CJ Wilson. If Hardin and Anderson stick, there might be 14 players on the team from the padt two draft classes. Emery is not messing around rebuilding much of this team.

    Irish, Tolliver caught 1 pass in the last two games. Give it up.

  • In reply to Cormonster:

    It's an amazing prospect isn't it?

    While Emery cocked up a bit last year (E-Rod a waster, Hardin made of glass, CDinner being the size of a small child), there's a good chance that he's hit it out the park this year. It's been so long since we've had a decent draft.

    Ford better make this team. I had to watch far too much of Khalil Bell getting to stick around for doing far less than this kid has done. Great moves on his TD last night.

    I agree with you on Tolliver as well. He has done fuck all. Irish, you're cray cray. Still love ya though.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    Granted I've not watched too many of the pre-season plays, but it's too early to bury CD.

    Maybe, though, he is my DA. Oh wait, never mind. McClellin has yet to fail to stick with a team for the first time. DA's a few ahead there.

  • In reply to Cormonster:

    Wilson caught one pass against the Raiders. What's the logic? Cutler ignored everybody except Marshall in the first game. Then he spread it around a bit, but there were a lot of dropped passes - guys with hands should make the team. that's too many drops for one game.

  • check THIS shit out

    whoa.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Wow... no shit. Not sure I want to read all that - might get me thinking the wrong way.

    On the other hand, must steal a quote from one of those pages, as it's a good reminder to we single guys :-)

    “I spent half my money on gambling, alcohol and wild women. The other half I wasted.” -- W.C. Fields

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    exactly dave.

  • I was at the game last night. Here are some photos https://twitter.com/ErikGrogan/status/371366133003067392

  • Jeff really like this photo enough to RT it.

  • Nice pics, Eric. I wish I coulda go e but didn't on account of not getting out of work plus it was just preseason. Looking back now, I wish I'd gone.

  • In reply to ben in norcal:

    I have more on the page now.

    I really hated being at that stadium and I hated most of the fans.

    I felt bad for the kids. Depressing as fuck.

  • Nice.

  • Packers released Harrell. He looked turrible last night.

  • In reply to Shady:

    And for the record Vince Young is turrible too.

  • In reply to Shady:

    That Packers game was an abomination to watch. It was hilarious watching Lacy recieve a hand off before the entire Seahawks D put his fat arse on the ground before he could gain a yard.

    Rodgers will probably die behind that line this year.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    For some reason I'm not worried about the pack at all this year. It's the sleeping dog Lions that I think are going to give us a run for our money.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    dude... fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck the lions.

    You might worry about the vikes, not the fucking lions.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I dunno, MB, the Lions absolutely manhandled Belicheat's boys the other night and put up a 40 spot with Megatron as a spectator.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    seems something like that always happens a couple times a pre-season al.

    If they do that to a good time in Q1, then I'll sit up and listen. No doubt they have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball, just don't trust they'll ever really pull it all together. I think 2 (or was it 3) years ago was as close as they'll get for a while.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    team not time.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    They've got three TEs they can hit us in the seam with. Bush still has it. They looked okay, and that D-line .... ouch.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Hey, nowhere did I say I respect the Lions. I don't. Their coach and organization are both pretty pathetic. On paper, they provide more problems for the Bears than most teams and discounting them is a mistake.

    Don't fall asleep in the foxhole pal!

  • Watching the Arizona Cardinals stink the joint out, at home, against those Mighty San Diego Chargers.

    The Cards just gave up a "Sure-To-Make--The-Next-Edition-Of-Football-Follies" Touchdown.

    Under :30 to go in the half, Chargers fumble inside Arizona's 10. Cardinals recover, try to lateral and bust a big return.
    Instead. said lateral is fumbled, pops into the air where a Charger recovers on the fly and runs it into the endzone for the TD.

    No laugh track required.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I saw that. Whoever that dude that lateraled was, I'll bet he's not there next week. Idiot.

  • Al, you think that's bad.

    Did any of you see/read this: http://nfl.si.com/2013/08/24/the-big-orlovsky-geno-smith-throws-three-picks-runs-out-of-own-end-zone-in-first-nfl-start/?sct=hp_t11_a2&eref=sihp

  • Just a random observation:

    Haven't seen many cheesy-smelling trolls 'round these parts lately. Wonder what that means.

  • In reply to ben in norcal:

    I've been thinking the same thing
    Ben. I've decided there just isn't that much to laugh at in Chicago anymore. Emery and Trestman at least, appear to be all business at this early stage of the game. No circus to check and and poke fun at from time to time.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    I'm gonna agree with ya, kinda what I was thinking as well. Only time will tell, but I've had a hunch that Phil was the man ever since he showed up.

    'Championships'
    -Phil

    Guess we'll see.

  • I'm gonna guesstimate the Bears roster.

    Cutler and McCown.

    Forte, Bush, and Ford.

    Fiamatta

    Bennett, Maneri, Onabun

    Marshall, Jeffrey, Bennett, Wilson, Weems, Anderson.

    Bushrod, Slauson, Garza, Long, Mills, Scott, Britton, Brown.

    Gould, PODLESH, Mannelly, Hester.

    Peppers, Melton, Paea, Wooton, McClellin, Collins, Washington, Minter.

    Briggs, Williams, Anderson, Bostic, Greene, Costanza, Thomas.

    Tillman, Jennings, Conte, Wright, Steltz, Hardin, Frey, CJ Wilson, Bowman, McMannis, Walters.

    I think the Bears or any other team would be stupid to keep less than 8 o-lineman.

    My two biggest ? are Onabun and Minter.

  • In reply to Cormonster:

    All those scouts are at Bears game for Minter, Irvin, Cheta, Washington, Ford, Anderson, Wilson, CJ Wilson, and Maybe Thomas and Webb (Olines are depleted around the league).

    They're lurking like that douchey friend who wants you to break up with a girl to move in.

    No way Ona-bum makes this squad.

    Pope will likely take that spot, maybe Kyle Adams.

    Bennett goes on the 6wk pup, and Wilson makes the squad. He was playing with the first team. Usually when teams want to sneak guys into the squad, they "hide" them by not playing them, but they didn't do that with Wilson which makes me conclude he's on the squad.

    I'm not sure Walters makes the cut.

    Corvey Irvin or Cheta might take that spot IMO.

    I also expect us to scoop up a QB. The Raiders have like 4 of them which would make a decent 3rd for us.

  • And by squad, I mean Wilson makes the 53, not the PS.

  • yYeah, we'll probably keep another dl. I still think they may keep thebum. He does everything but catch the ball. He just needs a mental coach. Emery wants playmakers, and this guy could be a stud.

  • In reply to Cormonster:

    You might remember a former tight end of ours that also couldn't catch the ball....

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    thank you for not actually saying his name dy.

  • In reply to Cormonster:

    Our DT depth in specific might need some insurance.

    Izzy's versatility was a luxury for us.

    I seriously think we might keep an extra DT just in case.

  • Good lord, that Charger-Cards game was brutal.

    All our PS games have actually been relatively exciting this preseason.

    Just glad none of our starters went out for the season (knock on wood).

    The Pack oline is alarming many in cheeseville.

    They are beginning to remind me of the late Manning lead Colts.

    If Rodgers isn't careful, he'll end up with a fused neck too.

  • Cooper broke his leg.

    Ouch.

  • That is a killer. That Oline is already rancid and now they've lost him. They'll be propping up the division this year.

  • 1. Wilson making the team. The string bean was actually out there on kick coverage getting an assist on a tackle. That's all they wanted to see.
    2. Ford made the team with those nice runs, stepping up on specials and being a backup kick returner. Weems is also making this team though so this could get tight.
    3. McCown playing with Forte, Bennett, Jeffrey and Marshall will be just fine, they'll just adjust the routes and put Marshall in the slot more. His only purpose is to be a stop gap for a game or two until Cutler recovers from the concussion. Any more than a couple of games and it doesn't matter who the QB is, we're done.
    4.The Fendi Onobun experiment is officially over. Holy shit he is bad.
    5. I think they put Scott on the PUP list.
    6. Kyle Long is a fucking monster and like a sponge, sucks up know how and experience with every rep, growing stronger and stronger. Dangerous.
    7. Joe Anderson is making the team, why would this "stuff" be over?

  • In reply to Johnny:

    1-3: Strongly agree;

    4: If he's eligible for the PS, I think that's where he'll go. The problem is apparently between his ears. A little therapy and/or hypnotism plus some sessions with Tim Jennings on how to catch a football and he'll be good;

    5: If so, that means Webb will be here for a while;

    6-7: Strongly agree;

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Not sure how I ended up duping your post but another crazy sad story. Kids seem to have a harder and harder time of differentiating between fiction/fantasy and reality....

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    i feel no remorse. start killing them on the spot (when there's no question about guilt). it's enough already.

  • I think Earl is going to be the odd man out. When JA extended him he was the best WR on the roster. He is now the 5th option in our offense (Forte, Beast, Beast Jr., Marcellius, the Pearl). I like Earl, but the dollars he is earning don't add up. Hope I'm wrong.)

    Cutler is a flat out stud.

    I love the way Turner was dialing up blitzes. Pre Season or not, I like a d that is in attack mode.

    Slauson was wrecking people the entire game. I can't wait to see him lined up against Suh (flags will not be the only thing flying).

    Catch the fucking ball.

  • In reply to Viva:

    That's good news because Slauson is getting reps at C.

    Maybe he's our future C.

    Brown can then slide in at OG, or we get another one somewhere.

  • In reply to Viva:

    I can't wait to see how our OL plays against the Kitties. It doesn't take much to get inside the heads of Suh and Fairly. The Leos are already in midseason form for personal fouls. I think they've had 8-10 in the first three fake games. I've never seen a team in 50+ years of watching football that act like them. Trying to act macho and strut around on the field is not going to intimidate anyone in the NFL.

  • In reply to Viva:

    It would be a shame if Earl can't play, and like you I hope you're wrong about him not being on the roster. Someone (Shady? Butch? GP?) suggested putting him on the 6-week injured list, and that's an option.

    Regarding being the "5th option", we're being a bit premature on Uni and Alshon methinks.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Maybe 5th is a bit premature, but his durability is an issue. We can hope for 6 week PUP, but really, how many seasons has he played entirely?

    Is that a WR you want on the roster? Don't think about it as a fan, think about it as running the beloved as a business.... though that kind of detachment isn't necessarily easy for werabid fans.

  • In reply to Scharfinator:

    Ahem, we rabid fans.

  • In reply to Scharfinator:

    were-rabid?

    Let us not forget one of those seasons was because of that fellating Saints bounty hunter.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    The rest of our players seemed to come out of it fine.

    I love Earl, when he's healthy. He's the 3rd down, reliable and willing to put it out there kinda guy. The trouble is, whatever the reason, he can't seem to stay that way.

  • In reply to Viva:

    So I wasn't imagining things? I saw 68 throw himself at some guy and blocked the shit out of him - it was a superman leap followed by a crash.

  • The Turk has made his first visit:

    Wide receiver Devin Aromashodu, running back Curtis Brinkley, defensive tackle Eric Foster, tackle A.J. Lindeman, center P.J.

    I never understood the DA love. Apparently Trestman, et al, don't either.

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    FML!

    A return to the smurf kingdom awaits ......

  • Chicago is down to 76 players and must make one more roster move ahead of Tuesday's deadline.

  • In Captain Obvious news.

    "Fifth-round pick Jordan Mills has won the Bears' starting right tackle job.
    Mills started the second and third preseason games, and Jay Cutler "clearly" feels comfortable with a rookie right side of Mills and RG Kyle Long. The Bears' O-Line is coming together. If the season began today, it would involve LT Jermon Bushrod, LG Matt Slauson, C Roberto Garza, RG Long, and RT Mills. It's still a bottom-five unit on paper, but has played well together in August."

    -Rotoworld

  • Really don't agree the OL is bottom 5 on paper. After playing against zone blocking teams for years and hating them, it's nice to see the Beloved embrace the system. Tice always wanted the OL to blow people off the ball. It's rare in this day and age a team has that kind of talent. With zone blocking, you can take avg talent that works together and make it work. I always thought zone blocking was often times dirty and borderline illegal. Glad to see we're on the other side of it now.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Was it under Martz or tice that the OL had to engage the enemy at 45% all the time? That was insane.

  • To my eyes, the best things I've seen all preseason are Long/Mills and the downfield blocking by the WRs. If the latter keeps up, every fantasy player that does not own Matt Forte will be wearing some frowns about the RB position.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Agrreeeeddd.

    ponder is our starting QB.

    Yikes!

    Our QB issues aren't even a thing maing. sheeeeeit.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    That's rough for Kolb.

    What do you guys think about Colt McCoy? Granted, he hasn't been great, but he is familiar with a West Coast system. I can't imagine he'd be any worse than McCown.

    San Fran is trying to trade him, but I say we let his ass hit FA then kick his wheels then. The 9er's are hoping for a *lot* to trade him.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Sexy Rexy... Colt the Swolt? A bit of a stretch there...

  • In reply to Scharfinator:

    he's actually not that bad... shame he's going to die in this game from all the scrambling.

    another question... does colin kapernik wear eyeliner?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    oh and... McCoy the boytoy?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    +1 Well played, sir, well played.

  • In reply to Scharfinator:

    Seneca Wallace just hit the market. Luke McCown is the #2 behind Brees now.

    Eh ..wait ... I thought he was our backup .....

  • did you see that rook TE McDonald just catch the ball, hurdle OVER a dude, then fucking crush the next guy?

    Damn... just like cinibun huh? smfh.

    You go boy!

  • Got this from Bleacher Report as well. I love this comparison between Webb and the Prettiest girl in Green Bay. Ha ha! Hilarious.

    "There's little argument that the Bears' offensive line needed better play from every position, Webb graded out as their best offensive lineman on Pro Football Focus (subscription required) in 2012. That might be like being the prettiest girl in Green Bay, it's a clear indication that he wasn't their biggest issue on the line."

  • I love that we have a coach like Trestman. When he's reviewing the tape with Cutler he'll have the balls to show him when he made mistakes and also all of the good things he did.

    He'll most certainly point out that Jay was on pace for a 275-300yd game and if the drops on CORRECT decision made by him are actually caught his numbers would have been gaudy and the Bears offense would have moved the ball more than efficiently.

    That is classic West Coast. SuperBowl.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    But will Cutler misinterpret this comment and then show Trestman his balls?

    Gay thought for the day (because it's okay to be gay) :

    If we signed Tebow we'd have a really hot QB roster capable of running a read-option offense.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    People were throwing out Grossman stats the other day. They were almost identical to Cutler's (Sex threw for 40 more yards) ... which goes to show that stats rarely tell the story. One of those guys is a stud, the other is a bum. Numbers schmumbers.

  • and now for something completely different.

    She's probably not even high. She wants to be what Madonna was but without any trace of talent whatsoever (just like Madonna).
    The personification of the dangers of positively reinforcing your child.

    My hero Bill hicks did call for the hunting and killing of Billy Ray Cyrus ....
