Bears are Undefeated: Rapid Fire Reactions

Bears are Undefeated: Rapid Fire Reactions

NOTE: I hear your complaints on the game thread and comments section in general. I'm working to remedy the awfulness. Unfortunately re-launching the site rogue is a time-consuming endeavor. We've begun that process but in the meantime I am working to make the experience below better.

There are many blossoming themes from Sunday's thrilling Bears victory but I'll be using this space to discuss the particulars of the game. I almost went to the notebook during a game for the first time in my life because there was literally something interesting happening every play.

Here are many of them.

  • My favorite moment of the game was one of its final moments. As Rey Maualuga was committing an idiotic personal foul on Jordan Mills, Jay Cutler burst in and made sure the rookie right tackle did not retaliate once the flag was in the air. It was the most visible on-field leadership he's shown as a Chicago Bear.
  • Tim Jennings played poorly almost all afternoon but his forced fumble/recovery on Mohamed Sanu was the most important play of the game. Weren't we all told the Bears wouldn't be able to force turnovers anymore because Lovie Smith left town?
  • Whatever the "game plan" was to defend A.J. Green, it should be thrown in the trash. There are a handful of receivers in this game that require double teams and Green is one of them. Tillman and Jennings are fine corners but there isn't a corner in the game capable of winning a one-on-one battle with this kid.
  • Now that he's done it in a real game, I'm preparing to take my Kyle Long bow. Long and Jordan Mills both held their own admirably against one of the best defensive fronts in the sport.
  • I am all for Cutler spreading the ball around but the Bears offense is at its best when the central figure is Brandon Marshall.
  • Magnificent catch by Martellus Bennett on the touchdown...
  • ...but too many penalties and a bad drop by the tight end tainted his afternoon.
  • James Anderson might have been the best Bears defender yesterday. He was excellent in coverage - especially early in the game.
  • Adam Podlesh was the Bears best player in the first half and you could make an argument his punting kept the team close. Nobody has been more critical of Podlesh than myself and he proved me wrong yesterday.
  • Where did all this Robbie Gould leg come from?
  • In my pre-game analysis, I thought Devin Hester would make a difference. Instead Mike Nugent sent every kickoff into the third row. The NFL got what they wanted: the end of one of the most potentially exciting plays in sports.
  • Outside of one play, a Shea McClellin sack, there were no signs of a pass rush for the Bears yesterday. I thought Andrew Whitworth's injury was going to be significant, Jeff? I was dead wrong and the Bears edge was DOA.
  • I thought Lance Briggs played nervous. Bad angles, arm tackles...etc.
  • Another big play that gets lost in the splashy finish is Matt Forte's eight-yard, bounce it outside gain on fourth-and-one. Not a great debut for Forte in the Trestman offense but he got the yards when he needed them.
  • What was that Cutler interception? I have to assume the contact led to the poor throw otherwise he saw a phantom receiver.
  • It's only the first week but I expect Forte to be more involved in the passing game moving forward. Yesterday he seemed entrenched in the check down spot in front of the linebackers.

Overall it was a tale of two distinct halves and the Bears coaching staff should be praised for whatever adjustments they made in the locker room. One thing became very clear. As Cutler gets comfortable in this offense, the Bears are going to have a chance to score a ton of points.

  • Bush came out of his break to the wrong side after he passed the LOS. That was a timing throw and Cutler blew it.

    That's Jay's weakness, is aborting his mechanics once he's made up his mind what he's going to do based on what he sees. He threw almost as muscle memory from countless practice reps except Bush wasn't there.

    Pep is old. Old and slow, looking like Agunleye now, or Phillip Rivers at the end. No motor, no push. Shot knees. We're going to need a lot of blitzes.

    Jacksonville had the worst pash rush in the NFL last year. Coincidence?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Boooo!!!

    Interesting about JAX. Everyone just assumed it was horrible talent over there, but god I hope it wasn't also BAD D coaching.

    Pepp's plantar's not going to improve as season wears. Then again, Akins - a stud in his prime - did squat. Hopefully, it's just a one game aberration.

  • First! Hell of a win last night.

  • False start Phil!

  • I have to agree with you about the adjustments, Jeff. It was very refreshing to not have to give up after a slow first half.

  • Pros: The o-line wasn't terrible.
    We still have Bostic on the bench.
    The defense still looks like it can help us out.
    We have a professional; coaching staff

    Cons: Hello pass rush?
    Major Wright isn't the answer.
    Forte and Earl were hearing footsteps again ....
    LDL on the timeouts, albeit the credo of 'no wasted plays' ,,,,

  • Earl was targeted once the entire game, and it was a 6 yard catch on second and four in the third quarter.

    Pass blocking was better it has been in a long, long time.

  • The Bengals had planned much like the Bears to get the ball out quickly. I didn't see Dalton holding the ball. Both offenses did well to scheme against the other team's strength - the front four. It was refreshing to see a Bear's coach put this into effect and Cutler carry it out. I can't remember a game where I wasn't frustrated by Cutler holding the ball so long or refusing to throw it out of bounds (he never really had to).
    Major Wright had an alright game especially some key tackles against the run.
    Seems like Gould's kick has been the forgotten story or key to the game. It would've been different without that record boot on the soldier field grass.....it would've been good from 68 was the most amazing thing.

  • Every team the Bears play that has a kicker capable of kicking it through the end zone will do so. Why is this surprising? This is exactly the reason I'm against keeping Devin Hester on the roster. His job is to return punts and the rare kickoff that doesn't go through the end zone and is also returnable. Weems, Ford and probably Joe Anderson would be serviceable to good at the position so why use a roster spot? If he shows hes still got "it" somewhere and it just didn't show yesterday, great. If he looks like he did yesterday, we need to make room for Scot or someone comparable at swing tackle.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Huber, 53 yard punt. Hester 3 yard return (+15 for the face mask)
    Huber, 44 yard punt out of bounds.
    Huber, 46 yard punt out of bounds.
    Huber, 50 yard punt. Hester -2 yard return

    So yes, not very effective. But a 45 yard punt out of bounds is a result I'll take every time as the kicking team.

    The second return was a pretty good play by Dre Kirkpatrick.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Until he shits the bed in a game, I'm gonna believe Hester has more value than the 4th-best OT on the squad.

  • A fair point. But what happens to the offense if one or two of the current starting linemen gets hurt? It just doesn't seem prudent to be as thin at tackle as the Bears are while we hope against hope that Devin may still produce. Even if he does, the rule changes fucked him. Nobody has to kick out of bounds on kick offs anymore to avoid him thereby giving the Bears the ball at the 40. They can just send it through the end zone. Even if he returns one or two, I'd rather have a serviceable backup tackle. Field position is going to be far less critical under Trestman than it was with Lovie. I know I'm in the minority here. Just my .02.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    I'm 1000% with you on this johnny. Can't get behind a guy who admitted to his teammates that he quit

  • fb_avatar
    In reply to Johnnywad:

    they're screwed that's what happens.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Again, he should have been fired on the spot when he came out with all that stuff. Fired on principle.

  • All in all, I thought it was a fairly impressive win. Black Unicorn needs to quit with the penalties, but having a TE that can a) catch the ball, and b) do something after the catch is such an improvement over the last two years that I was almost speechless.
    Cutty looked much sharper in the 2nd half then the first, but that interception was a WTF.
    Neither D-line looked particularly impressive in passing downs, but I'll take that as a compliment to our personnel moves. Long is proving me completely dead wrong. And I'm happy about it.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    i'm going to assume it was a miscommunication between him and bush. if you look at the play, cutler throws it to where bush would have been had he made his cut left instead of right (or right instead of left, depending on which side you're watching from.)

    it was definitely a WTF. i just don't know if it was WTF Jay, or WTF Bush.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    Agreed - Cutty didn't appear to lose his shit though, and that's a very good sign.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    amazing how much more positive a man can be when he makes it through a game without having his spleen driven through his anus by a 300 pound lineman.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    I'm his biggest supporter on the blog next to Waffle, and even I can admit he needed to reign in some of the bitch face stuff, as absolutely deserved as it usually was.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    look at eli after the carr pick 6: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxZvCS0Ndh8

    eye rolls. looking up to the heavens. throwing his hands up in exasperation. throwing his fists down towards the turf in anger.

    now, clearly it's deserved as that's as shitty a pick six as you can throw as a quarterback, but how come no one came out today ripping eli for being such a bitch about it?

    media ain't fair sometimes, mike. media ain't fair.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    Oh, I know - I saw that reaction and laughed my ass off last night.
    The problem for Jay has been that the storyline is written for him, so every time he did that, it just fed the beast.
    Gotta starve that bitch...and by having an o-line that can protect him and a coordinator/coach that doesn't screw him by letting defenses tee off on him play after play after play (yo, Martz, where you at, jackball?)

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I've liked his attitude this whole off-season. It's a new house. Still can't believe he ddidn't get sacked agaisnt the Bengals. People bemoaned the fact that Forte didn't rack up big numbers, but I dare say we run all ove the Vikings next week. We beat a really good team with a dangerous receiver. I'll take that.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    Jay confirmed that he was going for Bennett who was wide open but his shoulder front shoulder got hit on the throw.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    that makes sense if you take a look at the freeze frame here: http://bit.ly/1aYJIPf

    another yard towards the sideline and it makes it to bennett. also, this shows that bush made the proper cut. highlight doubt he'd run a route right in front of bennett like that.

    - D-line, D-Line.. Hello? Please don't let Peppers be done.
    - Long, Mills, your table is waiting. Thank you.
    - Slauson, Bushrod, unsung heroes.
    - Garza - hanging on, but looks better with better G's on both sides.
    - Peanut, please hydrate yourself properly
    - Get off of Hester's back already.
    - Clean it up Martellus. Great TD catch, but a drop and 2 holding calls, no thanks.
    - Michael Bush thank you.
    - Alshon, thank you
    - Earl Bennet glad to see you on the field.

  • In reply to Big Mike:

    Gotta agree with every one of those, Mike. Think a pat on the back is in order for Gould and Podlesh.

    Overall, specials were only fair though - the return game was not effective and it was only a really lucky block in the back vs. Weems (who was faked out of his shoes by the returner) prevented a coverage unit embarrassment by negating a 50 yard return by Jones.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    At one point they were starting on the 17 yard line (on average) we were starting on the 36. With Podlesh's coffin corners and the 58 yarder out of Gould, I'd say we're happy.

    Most impressed with Trestman's decision to go for it on 4th and 1 though. We're in good hands.

  • In reply to Big Mike:

    - Get off of Hester's back already.

    jesus some of you guys are like post menopausal fucking women about hester. Enough with all the fucking sentimental pussiness (yes, I just made up a word), this is a what have you done for me lately business, and guess what devin has done for us in the last 2 years.

    The fucking guy admitted he was done. now he's just collecting a paycheck and taking up space.

    Pull out the tampon people... time to move on. They aren't kicking away from him any more. rules have changed, years have gone by, he's lost it... buh bye.

    Now please prove me wrong devin... you have two more games to do... anything.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Well he did help us bring "pussiness" into being. So there's that.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    there is that

  • fb_avatar
    In reply to MB30SD:

    I didn't say he doesn't need to prove it. But to prove it, he needs the ball. His cap hit is pretty small, between injuries and IR, he's not keeping anyone off the field we need.

    I don't have any sentimental attachments to Hester. I just don't get thee level of hate that spews out at him.

  • In reply to Big Mike:

    I was mostly just seeing if I could get a rise outta ya mike. Well done for taking the high road.. especially after the tampon joke.

    Look, the hate comes from him SAYING he quit.

  • In reply to Big Mike:

    Pepp wasn't effective, but how about Paea, Woot, Shea who are not "Old and broken down"? I'm not sure what's going on there. I know Marinelli got them going, but I'm hoping it's not that. Didn't we keep Phair, a holdover for Dline?

    Maybe it had more to do with Bengals quick passes. Kind of hard to get sacks in three steps.

    Bengals also did a nice job of mixing in some double moves to get our aggressive CBs to bite.

    Those were the moments when our Dline could have stepped up. I'm concerned though because not only didn't we get a sack until late, but little pressure on Dalton.

    Against meh QBs, we can survive. But if Rodgers or Stafford have that time, they're going to bomb us like we're Syria.

  • oh, and Melton. Almost forgot he was on the Bears since he did jack shit.

  • did hold them to 3 yards a rush. so at least the line was there for that aspect of the game.

    but you're right. pressure will need to come from somewhere, and we're our best when it's coming from the front 4.

  • fb_avatar

    No, the dline was ineffective against the pass. There were a 1/2 dozen to a dozen drop back passes where they were non-existent. It was a poor showing.

    Peppers was invisible. re-watched the condensed game on NFL rewind, he didn't have it yesterday. He was doubled about 1/2 the time. Someone else needed to step up. Melton was invisible against the pass. Wooton/McClellin, were not a factor even when they were 1 on 1. Again, this is against the pass. They stopped the run stone cold.

    Stopping the run next week, is the whole game.

  • In reply to Big Mike:

    Amen on that last sentence, Mike.

  • fb_avatar
    In reply to Big Mike:

    yeah maybe we can pull it together I am convinced Peppers still has something left; I think our defensive coordinator is not that good.

  • Next week: Ponder's last game as a NFL starter.

    3 INTs this week. He's bad. Bad, you know.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    saw highlights (lowlights?) GP. he is NOT a starting NFL qb. turrible.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    That's why I got them finishing 3rd in division.

    If Meows didn't have doucheyne coach, would be 4rth.

  • Maybe Gould had some weird muscle thing happen when he rehabbed-like in that one baseball movie where the little kid ends up pitching for the Cubs-and now he's automatic from 50+ yards.

  • Or maybe its HGH. Though you'd think it'd help his hair grow back....

  • FUNKY BUTTLOVIN?

  • The Trestman dividend:

    1. How many times in the Lovie era did his teams take a knee to end a half while losing? That always pissed me off. Not yesterday. When you are losing, giving away time is bad.

    2. Trestman's decision to go for it on 4th and 1, while down by 4 points (7 1/2 minutes left in the game) , told me that Trestman is a realist. His d was getting gouged, and the only way for his team to take the lead was to convert that first down (Bengals 26 yard line). I loved the decision. Do you want to win or do you want to be down down by 1 (and still need your D to hold, O to establish another drive, and Robbie to hit another FG)?

    3. How long until Bostic is starting? Purple Jebus is coming.

  • In reply to Viva:

    I don't think Trestman looked at the jumbotron or up at the clouds even once.

  • Was I the only one shaking my head at the Forte lined up wide...twice. And both times Jay took one step and threw it right to him. Please take that out of the playbook!

    Update on Sunday ticket through Madden: Wasnt able to launch it first thing in the AM and didnt want to miss the game so we went to the local watering hole and watched it. Came home for the 1pm games and it launched just fine. Looks good on the bigscreen too.

  • Just watch. That play will be scouted and the next time we'll run it, Forte will fake the bubble screen and go deep for six. Don't take that play out of the playbook.

  • Time of Possession in the 4th quarter...
    12:21 - 2:39

    That's pretty damn impressive.

  • The Cutler interception show that a Bengals defender managed to reach around and grab Cutlers shoulder pads as he made that throw...I don't fault him for that. Also, zero sacks allowed against the Bengals? A sign of great things to come

  • Our resident Packer Troll is strangely quiet so far.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    if the refs hadn't blown that call on roid rage's blatant OOB cheapshot, they would have easily won the game GP. Common.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yeah, that's a sick catch. I'm surprised QB's don't do more sideline throws like that. Really no risk of a pick.

  • In reply to Scharfinator:

    I was going to write earlier that is was a nearly perfectly thrown ball. I'm a big believer in putting the ball where ONLY your guy has a chance when you're going to a guy that's covered.

    These guys are paid a lot of money to catch a ball. Let them do it.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Pack plays Washington this week. It would be nice if they started 0-2

  • In reply to Waffle:

    Wouldn't count on that on, Johnny. But yeah, it *would* be nice.

  • http://nfl.si.com/2013/09/08/ndamukong-suh-illegal-block-detroit-lions/?sct=hp_t2_a3&eref=sihp

    When are they going to stop slapping this POS's wrist and fucking send a message that it's not ok to try and end guys careers? Jesus NFL... you're willing to fine a guy $20k for the wrong fucking socks, but an open, obvious, blatant cheapshot artist who tries to hurt guys keeps getting nothing?!?!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yeah, he's out of control. It's fucking ridiculous. Some thugs don't deserve to play.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It really does defy comprehension, MB.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It's mind boggling - even the Husker fans I know have quit making excuses for this idiot now. And they worshiped him the first few years he was in the league.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Didn't Earl get fined like $20k for wearing orange shoes?

    Yeah, obviously, that's just as bad as ending some dude's season and possibly career.

  • Actually it's worse 85. Anytime the league's authority is challenged multiple times, they have no option to swing the hammer. If I remember correctly, they gave him a pass with a warning the first time but he did it again the next week. Guess what, after the fine he stopped doing it. Seems silly but actually I do think the league has to do something when those kind of things happen. Earl can afford it, no big deal.

  • A few thoughts of my own to add:

    1 - Cutler and the offense had a good second half. I'm happy with the win, but we still haven't proven we can win a shootout. We'll need that ability to beat New Orleans, Atlanta, Denver, New England or the Pack. I'm hoping to see more growth from Trestman.
    2 - With that said, the Bengals and Bears both have top 10 defenses (possibly both top 5). Neither team had much of a pass rush, but the offensive troubles on both sides are at least partly due to just playing good competition. We'll play some softer defenses in the next few weeks; let's see what develops.
    3 - We're up one game on the Pack, but the Pack's loss was to the 49rs. Last year we were up two games before we hit a rough spot and the Pack had a lighter schedule. If the Bengals can get some wins agains the Pack and the Vikings, that's the advantage I want to see.
    4 - With that said, a win is a win and the Bengals are one of the tougher teams on our schedule. The Steelers and Lions don't look especially dangerous, so we just won the toughest of our first 3 games.
    5 - Tillman v. Green was one of the best matchups of the year. Green got 160 yards, Tillman got two picks, that's hall of fame stuff right there.

    If I'm Trestman, here are my priorities for the week:
    - Tackling. The linebackers did not get enough tackles. The d-line did not get enough tackles. Way too many missed opportunities. We have to get better.
    - Scheme. I put this on Trestman - our receivers need to get open more. This improved in the second half, but there's room to grow. Trestman has to do a better job creating opportunities on paper that the players can take advantage of on the field.
    - Mental errors on offense. We called two early timeouts because the offense wasn't ready to go quickly enough. Marty had a penalty and I believe there was another penalty as well on someone else. First week jitters are fine - now fix it.
    - Pass rush. This is why the Bengals drove 90 and 80 yards to get those scores. We've got great coverage, but it won't last forever. Gotta get consistent pressure on that QB. That isn't just sacks. We need sacks, hits and hurries plus we need an obvious change in the opposing play calls to avoid the pressure. That's not happening.

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    I agree, but our next two games are Vikes and Steelers theennnn the Lions.

    Either way, I don't see any of those being too difficult to win. I think a healthy expectation is 2-1 of the next 3.

  • In reply to Scharfinator:

    Being 3-1 or 4-0 going into New Orleans would be great. That's really the next major test for us - can our offense be as productive as we know the Saints will be?

  • In reply to NewBearInTown:

    With you on the receivers NBIT. If Marshall goes down, we don't look very good. I cannot for the life of me understand Wilson's presence - what could he possibly do on a football field surrounded by manly men?

  • Trestman confirmed exactly what I thought they were doing in the first half. They were being conservative to confirm that the new kids could or could not handle the Bengal Defensive Front.

    Yes, it was annoying to not air it out to Marshall, Bennett and Jeffrey when everyone knew they couldn't be stopped but Mark had a plan and he stuck with it.

    They employed the more aggressive offense in the 2nd half and fucking dominated time of possession and drove the ball up and down the field.

    You can be sure that what you saw in the 2nd half will be exactly how the Bears attack the Vikings in the first half of next weeks game. They will keep sack totals near 0 by getting rid of the ball quickly and into the hands of the weapons. The Vikings defense will not be able to handle this quick passing attack. As long they neutralize the rush and blitz by making sure the ball is gone they will score and move the ball consistently.

    There is no way on this earth that the Vikings D line and Linebackers can bring it like the Bengals and there is no way that the Vikings D backs can handle the absolute monsters that are out WR's and TE.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    I heard that in his presser today. Makes sense to protect the franchise QB.

    I was surprisingly calm yesterday, even when the score was 21-10. I had confidence the Bears would fight back. A Packer friend watched the game with me and must have been bewildered when I didn't get discouraged.

    Then the Bears put up two 80+ yard scoring drives to win the game. Very impressive. I can't remember the last time that happened against a good team.

    I also can't remember the last time we beat a good team by out coaching them. The future is looking bright.

  • Vikings defensive end Jared Allen also disapproved of Suh's low block.

    "[Suh] is a good dude, but that's uncalled for," Allen said. "This is a fraternity. In the NFL, you try to take care of guys. Things happen, and guys are going to make hits. But you can't take a dude's legs out from behind on an interception return down the field.

    "He plays hard. I like his style of play. But if you end a guy's career like that, it's just uncalled for."

    Allen, you rat faced hillbilly - Lance Louis is on the phone. He would like to speak with you about things that are uncalled for.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    now now now. give jared a break. suh's hit was dirty. he went low - clearly aiming at or around the knees.

    allen's was up high in one of the few areas still "deemed safe for contact." he was clearly a gentleman. except he did it against a defenseless player who wasn't able to get ready for the hit.

    so actually, you don't have to give allen a break. he's a dick.

  • haha, my Cutler is bette than Peyton Manning piece is up! Take a read, punks!

  • Nice read, Butch.

  • Bears sign Jon Scott at Tackle and waive Kyle Adams.

    Now we get to pay Scott like a day laborer instead of like a vested veteran. Cold Blooooooodeeeeddd!!!!!

  • In reply to Waffle:

    vicious tackle from adams on burfict on the cutler INT. i'm surprised he wasn't flagged the way he launched at his legs like that.

    oh well. so long, terrible tight end holdover from the jerry days!

  • In reply to evantonio:

    I guess I need to see a replay, because I thought Adams hit him in the thigh. He got lower than that, I guess?

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    hard to tell exactly where contact is made. http://www.nfl.com/videos/chicago-bears/0ap2000000241204/Bengals-defense-INT
    maybe it's a little higher than the knee. but it's awful close. they even threw a flag and picked it back up.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    Looking at it again, he *definitely did not* hit him at the knee or below. The announcer, correctly for a change, points out that Adams hit him in the thigh and speculates he got some whiplash on his knee.

    The replay also shows clearly that when Adams hit Burfict, that leg was already off the ground. The only possible problem is leading with his head, which could have been flagged it seems.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    if they would have called that a penalty i would have stopped watching football and i'm dead serious. He tackled his legs.

    I know, its hard to imagine old Traco made a funny. This too shall pass. He he.

  • Packer Troll -

    So, what do you think of Jimmy H calling Matthews a little prison bitch? He practically used the c-word to describe him.

    Tough talk from a team that beat you (again).

    I'm sorry, but the correct answer is "Ring-ding-ding-dingeringeding"

    "Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow" and "Joff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff" would have also been acceptable.

  • I have just watched the first 2 drives by the Philly Eagles vs the Skins. That was the most entertaining offense i've ever seen.

    If Vick was any good they'd be dangerous. Luckily for Washington he missed 3 consecutive wide open 25 yard passes because he sucks.

    Chip Kelly offense is circus like.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    wow, going to back watching regular football is going to be boring after this.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    Seriously, this Chip Kelly offense is crazy.

    Splitting the OTs out wide, leaving 3 in to block 4 and still being able to run the ball? Jebus. This is football on crack, and it's not by accident.

    I'm not sure if Washington is that bad on defense, or if Kelly's offense is this legit. Either way, it should give GMs even more reason to look to college as the breeding grounds for more creative, innovative, and efficient offenses and philosophys.

    I know Lovie will land on his feet next year, but I'm not sure where. Oakland? Dallas? New York? Tennesse? He's the kind of coach who can turn a 2 win team into a 10 win team, but I'm not sure he'd ever be able to keep up with the scoring to be able to win a Super Bowl.

    If I'm a GM, I'm looking for an offensive minded coach who hates FGs and whose desire is to put up at least 100 points per game.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    I came in to work to find out that rolling up my winnings on WAS+HOU was not in fact Fort Knox. WTF happened to the Eagles?

  • Eagles look good, but I can't see Vick staying healthy in this offense. Griffin looks bad tonight. The whole Redskins team looks turrible. I have no clue what to expect when the Bears play those NFC East teams this year.

  • In reply to Cormonster:

    I've already told you Cor. 19-0 Baby!

  • Anyone on here use NFLrewind? I'm seriously thinking to get it this year, but I don't trust the NFL to put out a quality product. Is it as good as advertised?

    OC out too. got the ultimatum. Uh, no.

    Yeah, let's make it happen. Want to look for tix again?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    yup!

  • Man, the Chargers still suck!

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Rivers is the biggest Dbag in the league. The fact that this point is not brought up every day of the year is baffling to me.

    Nothing makes me happier than when he loses. Jim Harbaugh is now in the running for biggest dbag in the league though. It's neck and neck.

  • Looks like the Bears cracked the top 10 on ESPN's Power Rankings list... not that that thing really means anything.
