Audibles From the Long Snapper: Mr. Ditka's Mustache & More

Audibles From the Long Snapper: Mr. Ditka's Mustache & More

Not a ton of relevant information out there about the first week of the Bears season but I scrounged together a few bits and bobs.

________________________________________

Ditka to Shave Mustache?

I assume because someone comically sign me up for it, I receive emails from an organization called the American Mustache Institute. This week's was, of course, Bears related. CLICK HERE to read the entirety of the piece.

There are many good jokes in this world. Whether it be clean jokes, dirty ones, knock-knock jokes, Paulie Shore’s career, why did the chicken cross the road, the music of Justin Bieber — it’s all very, very funny.

The prospect of Mike Ditka shaving his mustache, however, is  not funny in any way.

Apparently this specter of a bare-faced Ditka is a possibility, as in an interview with WGN’s Pat Tomasulo (below), the former Chicago Bears coach said if a large donation is made to his favorite charity, he will forcibly remove his lower nose forestry embankment.

“Clearly Mr. Ditka has forgotten his place in this world — that he is a shining beacon of freedom in representing the Mustached American community with his consistency of purpose allowing our people to flourish,” said Dr. Adam Paul Causgrove, chief executive officer of the American Mustache Institute, when told of Ditka’s gambit. “And biblically speaking, he must keep in mind that each time a mustache is shaved an angel in heaven dies and falls to earth, according to the Dead Sea Scrolls.”

While AMI has always stood for charitable intentions — and in fact, every endeavor undertaken by the organization has a charitable tie including our forthcoming ‘Stache Bash 2013 in Pittsburgh – this may go too far.

Sure.

Pro Football Focus Praises Cutler, Mills, Long

I disagree with some evaluations by the Focus guys but thought their work on Bears v. Bengals was pretty solid. To read the entire game report, CLICK HERE.

One rookie offensive lineman stepped onto the field Sunday and played like a Top 5 pick from the first snap to the last. That rookie was not Kyle Long (-1.7), rather it was fifth-rounder Jordan Mills (+3.4) out of Louisiana Tech. Mills allowed just that one pressure while Long allowed two and Mills was solid all day on the ground. All in all, it was a great showing for both considering that Long was matched up with the best defensive tackle in the NFL, Geno Atkins, for 25 snaps. Starting two rookies on the same side of the line is a dangerous proposition, but so far Mills and Long have made Marc Trestman look like a genius for it.

Jay Cutler’s (+6.1) play was a breath of fresh air for Bears fans. Poised in the pocket, under control, and accurate. It was the most comfortable he’s ever looked in a Bears uniform and his performance deserves this game ball.

All in all, the second half of Sunday's game proved the Bears offense can thrive under Trestman and the numbers seem to lean that way.

The Effect of an Offensive Line?

I was planning to do a comparison of the Bears current position in power rankings across the internet in an effort to show how arbitrary and downright silly they tend to be. Instead, after looking at the ESPN Power Ranking, I was shocked. They made a magnificent point.

Jay Cutler was 8-of-10 for 94 yards and a touchdown against at least five rushers Sunday against the Bengals. Cutler ranked 33rd with a 23.5 Total QBR last year against added pressure.

The idiocy of that QBR stat aside, this was an impossible achievement for Jay in 2012 because five rushers meant three making contact with his body. Most impressive is fact that Bengals defensive line is as good as any Bears face this year.

    Here's an article Breaking Bad fans might like.

  • In reply to Cormonster:

    pretty cool article. it's cool to see what's based in reality and what's not, but i'd be more interested in the science. like, the explosive meth that he made for the tuco confrontation. is that actually possible?

    one thing this article brings up that i don't understand, though, is why people are allowed to go around bragging about their past life as a drug dealer.

    let's say i kill a guy today. i don't say anything about it but then come out ten years and admit my crime. what happens? i get arrested.

    but if i sell crack, stop, then admit it years later i don't get in trouble. i get street cred and can become a rapper, a writer, a gas station attendant, etc.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    It would be pretty hard to prove without any evidence, like the actual drugs. The accused could just say they made it all up.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    I liked the Hydrofluorene bath scene. Very cool. Dissolves bodies completely, but needs to be stored in plastic. Awesome science. Like Prussic acid - this is good shit they won't do on TV.

    The CIA once replaced a tube of Castro's toothpaste with an identical tube containing an extra ingredient. Prussic acid. Stops the heart, completely undetectable. Top drawer weapon of murder, no competitors even close. But obviously you can't advertise that shit on TV ..... that's why kids have to get their learn-on in the books arena. But how many people read books that don't feature pictures of man-dog relationships?

    Science is awesome. If you have any relatives, youngsters who show no interest in science, try and get them a copy of Isaac Asimov's essay "Death in the laboratory" about the story of the discovery of fluorine - or rather the search for it. It's all there. The stupidity and brilliance of the human mind. Great story, great writer.

    Jefe, can we award Isaak Osimov a posthumous honorary blog membership please? He would most likely have been a Bears fan (for reasons not apparent or known to me). Probably.

  • so wait. how did castro escape death? does he not brush his teeth?

  • In reply to evantonio:

    Oh yeah, I forgot. A prostitute died when she used his toothpaste before he did.

  • The Score gets some senile mofos, some real mouth droolers over there as call in guests during Boers & Bernstein. I think they just like putting geriatric callers on because it makes them feel young. Man, that show is so insular.

    Anyhow, I was stuck listening because the city is fucking mobbed with people this week, I think we must have bussed in all the Syrian refugees and put them in the Loop to panhandle and just get in everyone's way.

    So I'm stuck waiting listening to 670 on the pod, and they have Hub on. Hub apparently now is grading OL for some paper, like the West Illinois Picayune and Crop Report or something. And he has Mills scored way ahead of Long. He also called out Peppers pretty hard and stated what we all thought we saw - he took the game off. This was always the rap on Julius, that he coasted at times - but Hub was definitive and stated he was unequivocally dogging it. The question is now - which Pep do we get against the Vikes? If he does it again, do you bench him?

    And as for the senile callers at the Score, I think it's perhaps instead the only callers they get over there anymore, as nobody rational would be allowed on because they would bash those fools.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Oh, and nice song Jeff. I learned something new today. All Bears have STDs. Nice.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Here's a conspiracy theory on Pepp.

    Emery straight up told him that unless he restructures his contract, he's not going to be a Bear next year.

    Pepp didn't like that, but agreed to restructure it a little (putting even MORE money next year - gone).

    Pepp passive-aggresively dogged it on.

    It's hard to imagine a captain dogging it. That's bad. I never understood why Peanut wasn't a Captain. Peanut was throwing up on the sidelines, yet still running around making plays, trying to get D TDs.

    STUD.

  • OR, it's much a-do about nothing and Pepp comes out against the Vikes and dominates.

    However, it's going to be hard for Pepp to get sacks on Ponder. The Vikes are going to run a lot, and if a 2nd stringer from the Bengals can handle Pepp, then a future Pro-bowler LT Kalil will definitely handle him.

    If I remember correctly, Kalil did a pretty good job on Pepp as a rookie. Maybe someone can refresh our memories on that match up.

  • I was disappointed and watching the game again, Pep is isolated 1-1 on that Bengals 2nd string tackle, and he stones Pep cold. Several times he stopped moving his feet. No swim, certainly no bull move, just looked over-matched.

  • Vikings radio announcer Paul Allen was ripping on Khalil on the radio the other day. He said he's really regressed this year.

    Gotta agree with Hub and PFF that Mills outplayed Long. It looks like the Bears may have gotten a steal in the 5th round. Way to call it regarding Kromer and later OL picks Butch.

  • In reply to Cormonster:

    karma owes us after all the rapings we took with our first round picks.

    i'd say we're still in the red, but a solid 5th round pick turned 8-year-starter at RT would be a nice start to recouping our losses.

  • Devil's advocate here. Maybe Pep was hurting a little? He's a football player. 42-10.

    We need to give Washington a spin - I'd like to see him running AP down and make up for the pre-season.

  • also from that PFF article:

    Jay was 3 for 3 on throws traveling 20+ yards in the air.

    that's got to be the protection. last few seasons he wouldn't be comfortable waiting the 2-3 seconds needed for his receivers to get that far down the field. funk you very much, jamarcus. and in case anyone was curious, Carimi graded out at -1.2 in the game agains the jets.

  • Christian is going to have to ponder his future after Orange Julius takes the Hub critique out on his arkish.

  • In reply to Viva:

    Very nice!

  • Gee boys and girls, aren't you going to miss Lovie's 4 game quarterly analysis? I predict the Bears go 4-0 through the 1st qtr of the season.

    By the way, if the Bears ever lose the 4th game in a qtr of a season, does that mean the quarter was a failure? Yeah, I never got that. Don't teams that lose the 4th quarter usually lose the game? Just sayin!

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    We're approaching halfway of the first quarter. We'll take it from there etc.....

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    except those times you go into the fourth up by ten and lose the quarter by 3. or 2. or 6. or 7. or, really, any number less than ten.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    The Bengals lost the 4th quarter last week. Capiche!

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    If there are four games in a quarter, then that means the quarters of each game are really sixteenths. But if we eliminate the Lovie quarter system in favor of each game simply being a sixteenth, then that means that the quarters are actually sixty-fourths. Or we can go with the new Canadian influence on the team and look at three one-third periods. In a sixteen game season, assume the final six games is a period and that gives you two sets of twentieths and one set of twenty-fourths...

    Okay... too much Chip Kelly.

  • Mills! That's my boy! I had him going to the Bears since Mel Kiper's pre-mock draft.

    I had it between him, and some other guy (gotta see what happened to him), though I did think that Mills would've got converted to OG since Kromer likes to convert OT into OGs.

    But Long held his own against the best 3-tech, so win/win (though Eifert is also going to be a stud).

  • Shit, I should have read down further. Just praised you above on that same point. A friend of mine who does his own mock drafts was also really high on Mills. He wanted the Cowboys to draft him.

  • http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nfl/news/20130912/nfl-picks-week-2-seattle-seahawks-green-bay-packers/?sct=hp_t2_a6&eref=sihp

    Bank's picks... of course it was all about how bad the vikes are and nothing about how good we looked.

  • Well, beating the Vikes on All-Pro in Madden 25 is a bitch. The AI just rips off 6 yards a crack unless you start run blitzing, because AP just bounces off Peanut and Jennings on outside runs or runs them over.

    Once you start run blitzing, the AI starts hitting the TE in the seams regularly. DJ Williams made 70% of all my tackles.

    I think this is close to how it will actually go. This is a game we will see what DJ has left.

  • "That’s why Peppers’ production in Sunday’s victory over the Bengals left people wondering if something’s wrong. Going up against a backup offensive tackle who had not started an NFL game since 2011, Peppers had one tackle. No sacks, tackles-for-loss, quarterback hurries or batted passes or forced fumbles in 52 snaps. The only other game with less impact statistically as a Bear was last year against the Tennessee Titans, when the Bears won 51-20 and Peppers played only 38 snaps and could have taken the day off. "

    http://www.suntimes.com/sports/22508107-419/julius-peppers-needs-to-step-up-against-vikings.html

    It's worth mentioning that Pepp didn't practice today due to "illness" - maybe same stomach flu Peanut had?

    To be continued...

  • Think it's his knees or ankles?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    His feet probably since Pepp's had issues with those. I don't buy that he was "loafing" willingly. There's definitely something rotten in Denmark.

    C'mon, feet, don't fail me now!

  • Oops.. and the link. http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcnorth/post/_/id/61209/adrian-peterson-looks-to-rebound-vs-bears

  • "They've got good D-tackles, but they're not Detroit up front," Peterson said. "Not to take anything away from those guys -- Julius Peppers and those guys are great players as well. We've got to go out, be physical and make our presence felt."

  • AP needs to shut his cock holster.

  • In reply to Viva:

    Cock holster.

    Hahahahahaha... I am so using that.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Bang Bang!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    see, it's funny because a holster is something you use to carry a gun or a firearm. by calling it a cock holster, viva is saying it's a case for carrying a cock. and then he goes one step further by saying he needs to shut his cock holster. so in this instance, he's equating "cock holster" with "mouth."

    by the law of syllogisms, adrian peterson puts penis in his mouth.

    Asked if he had a chance to join “J-Webb Nation”, the name Webb bestowed upon his social media followers, before Webb switched allegiances in the NFC North, Bears tight end Martellus Bennett had a revelation of a different kind.

    “No, but I did eat his apple fritters,” Bennett said. “He used to bring apple fritters and I ate them so I guess I was a part of J-Webb Nation. He kept him in his locker and like today, we would have J-Webb fritters. They were good too. They were hot and moist. I always asked where he got them from.”

  • PFF is obviously illegitimate in its ratings. Sorry, butch, Mannings 7 TDs FUCKING TOTALLY BLOW AWAY anything Cutler did last week.

    Or ever, for that matter.

    Games are won by scoring more points. It's really that simple.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Haha, I know, SC. I was just being factitious.

  • Doh!

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Dave, did you even watch the Broncos game? Manning threw a handful of those TD's on the goal line and one was a screen pass that Demaryius Thomas took like 70 yards to the house.

    It was an epic game but Cutler put the team on his shoulders and with his arm and his legs he caused the victory. He didn't pad his stats with 2 yard passes for TD's.

    Manning is one of the best of all time but let's take it easy with the "last week or ever for that matter" bullshit.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Manning is the type of QB that fans of other teams love to diss. I guess we just can't believe he's that good because of his post season record. Truth is that he doesn't get respect for losing all those playoff games. Sad to say it but the only SB he won was a gift from Da Bears and a stumbling bumbling Rex Grossman.

  • Ha ha! Peterson only averages 100 yards against the Bears? Funny. Yes, the guy is amazing. Erik was right to predict he would be their MVP last season. I got it totally wrong and thought he would be done after his surgery. The guy defies logic.

  • Ten brownie points Butch! A nitpicking and joshing minus one for referencing Interview with a Vampire - grandmother of Twilight and all romantic-vampire nonsense. A pox on Anne Rice and all female novelists who insist on painting such things as vampires with romantic bullshit.

Usually eating an organization from the inside out until it is just an empty shell that has to be completely rebuilt once the cancer has been excised.

    Nail on the head son.

  • Jeff, be honest, is Geno Smith the worst quarterback that I've ever seen?

    Shockingly bad quarterback play.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    I watched part of the second quarter, and his biggest problem at that point in the game was receivers that could not catch the ball.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    oh no my friend. It got epic after that. Both teams engaged in a frenzied contest of "how quickly can i piss away a chance to win a game and give it back to the other team"

  • Brady sucked but not to be outdone Geno Smith sucked like nothing I've ever seen.

    Well played Geno, well played.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    Someone on twitter typed "Geno Sanchez!"

    Didn't like Geno Smith coming out of the draft, like him less now. NO pocket awareness. No understanding of down/distance. Little accuracy. No internal clock. No feel of when to tuck it and run, and in fact, views himself as a "pocket" passer.

    He's going to be a bust IMO.

  • Rex trudging off the field with his head down thinking:

    a. how are my quarterbacks this bad?
    b. how are my fucking quarterbacks this bad?
    c. how are my fucking quarterbacks this fucking bad?
    d. holy shit, these quarterbacks are going to get me fired.

  • damn, rex ryan depressed at post game.

    Yawn. Boring...boring...boring. Yup, sorry Brian, no one cares that you can't move on. Great memories are just that, memories. As in past. Someone forgot to tell Brian to get off the bus.

  • Trac's Pick 4:

    Bears over Queens. The Bears will hoe slap the queens just like the punks that we all know they are.

    Chargers over the Eagles. Vick will come back down to earth after the Charges take the wind out of his sails.

    Redskins over the Fudge. 0-2? Yup, all the fudger's are going to be putting their cheese forks down after this one. Can't wait for this game.

    Chiefs over the Cowgirls. This is also going to be a good one to watch. I'm looking forward to seeing if Andy Reid has a good team in KC. I've never been a Reid fan but I've always like the Chiefs uni's and history. They remind me of when I moved to the states and played football for the first time on my 8th grade Chiefs team.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    yep agree with irish... the only one that I don't think will happen is chargers. They're just fucking turrible. They will continue to crumble.

    I think that their first half of their first game was their best football of the season. (how's that for the most theirs in one sentence)

  • I think you're solid on three of those Trac, Rivers may channel himself though. The Rams could finally de-wing the dirty birds. Cleveland could give the Ravens a few heart fibrilations there if Doug Martin has his mojo and their corners do their thing. The Giants have NO running backs, Denver will piss in their eye-sockets. Indy should do Mimi and Cincy should whop the Steelers. I wish the Titans would start Fitzy and start making them winners in handicaps. Can't begin to imagine what happens in the JAX-OAK game. And no one cares. Not even their fans.

  • who is this little treat on NFL AM? I like when attractive women talk about football in an intelligent manner.
