DaBearsBlog Officially Leaves ChicagoNow November 1st

DaBearsBlog Officially Leaves ChicagoNow November 1st

After a substantial delay due to (mostly positive) circumstances, DaBearsBlog is leaving the confines of the Chicago Tribune and the ChicagoNow network effective November 1st 2013. Starting November 1st (and perhaps sooner), THE ONLY PLACE DABEARSBLOG WILL BE AVAILABLE IS DABEARSBLOG.COM. (Change your bookmarks or whatever people use now.)

This change finally happened because of you. I have heard every complaint you've raised about the experience at CN and all that prevented me from acting was time. As this season began I could no longer use time as an excuse. I made the time to make your experience better. I believe I do good work here. I believe I do unique work here. But I believe my efforts are meaningless if the experience of those who've stood by me for years is not an enjoyable one. I apologize for not making this move when I promised - 10 months ago.

We thank Jimmy Greenfield and the CN folks once again for their support over these last few years.

Above you will see our new logo. It is modeled after my favorite storefront in all of Chicago - the Green Mill Lounge. An image of the original is here.

For the next thirty days we'll remain here at ChicagoNow. Then we're off.

  • Nice choice on the Green Mill. A not-so-hidden gem of Chicago's north side near the Aragon Ballroom.

    If I hadn't said so yet, welcome back.

    The level of analysis over at Bearsgoggleson is not good. Disquss boards tend to de-volve into a series of flip comments, kind of like Youtube comments (which is the textbook definition of how-to-ruin-a-community spirit). I tried going over there, but it's what I would classify as the level of fan best suited for the Tribune comments board. It was boring, like shouting in a big room full of stupid people.

    So I do hope that if Jeff is choosing his own, home grown Wordpress site, he carefully considers the key aspect of this group vs. other groups - better, more educated football analysis. The response length should be allowed to be longer. Allow embedded videos and animated GIFs. Yes, we will get some vile GIFs, but overall it would be better. Allow those long term bloggers who have shown interest to guest blog, not personally interested in posting, but some guests would mix it up w/o losing the tenor of the place.

    Jeff needs to make ends meet, so by all means, run banner ads. Precurse the audio with ads, there are ways to do that. Make money by hook or by crook, even have pass-thru one-click shopping offers. Just don't make the style sheet like this one, where the grey area is a joke how far over it's formatted.

    I'd love to see Jeff get more tech going. A semi-produced "radio" show with Skype call-in callers on Wednesdays or something that can be done with tech now, just using headsets and voip software. I'm sure Jeff could produce with just a Mac a better show than Les Grobstein or the Doomer. Schedule guest call ins with Bears celebs. There is a market for listening to something besides Doug Buffone go apeshit nuts on people, although his post game rant on the caller who suggested the Bears sign Tebow was priceless.

    So I wish him luck. If I had any advice for him, it would be to do the stuff he says he's going to do. If we're still here November 15th, I can see some blowback now that he's drawn the line in the sand.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I'll bet it's like the Blue Oyster inside.

  • Seeing Washington in there at rotational DE was a big, big development - as was seeing Dinner play linebacker.

    I haven't seen Haugh or Biggsy talk about this. Callers were too busy bashing Jay to mention it, but all things considered - this should turn into a big mid-week storyline.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Edelweiss was playing LB? Warshington at DE? How did I miss this? When did this happen? How did it look?

  • In reply to Shady:

    In goal line situations, Bears brought in a big package. In the middle of the field, it was all Anderson, but inside the 20 they experimented with this jumbo set.

    I saw Paea, Peeps, Woot and Collins get up and then saw Dinner get up from the pile and I was like Ted in Excellent Adventure whoa, then the replay and there he was - playing what anybody would have to call LB.

    So, you know, Chandler Jones is a 3-down DE playing some awesome ball for the Pats, but we have a jumbo situation Sam linebacker. So there's that.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Like ...Chicken was a linebacker ...?

    Totally.

    Duuuuuuuuuuuude.

  • In reply to Shady:

    LB where he should have been after we drafted him, certainly not putting his hand in the dirt with grown men.

  • we should not have drafted him at all. BUST.

    we should have c jones kicking ass and taking names.

    Fucking marinelli (you're welcome canada)

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    There is that.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    but marinelli didn't call them D-linemen. He called the RUSH MEN. how could you not believe in his ability to turn shea into a beast when he turned him into a RUSH MAN.

    plus, again, i can't stress this enough, we kept him away from green bay.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    see, I see my explanation for last year's draft being so lucid and logical.

    It was the diametric opposite to this year's, emery was told when he took the job lovie was the boss, lovie even got to interview emery.

    I'd love to hear from those who don't agree... ahem... what the logical explanation is for one draft to be almost full of busts (save ashlon) and the next to be almost full of guys who are or will play this year? How can you explain that without the above?

    Yes, I'll wait here.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    2012 wasn't full of busts. it was full of ceiling players who just haven't reached their ceiling yet - mostly because of negative energy on this blog. listen:

    brandon hardin was going to be mike brown 2.0. unfortunately, that's exactly what he proved himself to be. minus, ya know, the years of awesome play before injuries ruined him. also, he's white. and DBB peeps hate white safeties.

    e-rod was a victim of circumstance. he would be tearing it up for us this year, but trestman doesn't trust hispanics. that's why he cut garza, too.

    frey is on the team. he's like our revis.

    and i didn't even know we drafted greg mccoy, so i can't anything there.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    perfect.

  • Also, Jeff's interviewee Maneri was a no-show or injured, and the Bears used Eben Britton as blocking TE.

    I know that Maneri is no threat but I'm not sure that you can just walk away from the idea that the guy MIGHT go downfield. Lining up with 6 OL is just giving options away.

    4. His wife and SMALL CHILD WERE IN THE CAR !!!

  • DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    Having rewatched Bears game, nothing of note jumped out. Bears turned it over & couldn't stop the run. Impossible to do that & win on road.

    Not to mention the Bears couldnt convert a damn 3rd down to save their lives.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Shady!! Stafford threw a touchdown pass ... TO HIMSELF!!

    Don't see that everyday.

    What's that worth in fantasy?

  • They were in third and longs, something they've avoided early in the season.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    Penalties finally reared their ugly head and it negated 3 huge first downs I believe.

    Also, Trestman has to take a page out of GB's playbook and on 3rd and 5 just run a damn unstoppable 6yd route and make the defense make a sick play on one of our beasts.

    Jay had some disgusting, headshaking throws that seemed wide open but also had some beautiful ones that were negated or were dropped, etc. The playcalling and decision making was spot on but the execution was lacking. It does feel good to see the top 4 WR's on the team catching balls and TD's.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    Marshall had 3 or 4 huge drops , Martellus dropped a back of the end zone beauty and Alshon had a fade that he had a chance to haul in that maybe could have been a couple inches higher and it was a TD.

    I've never seen this kind of firepower on the field for the Bears.....ever.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    1995. conway and graham both top 1000 yards receiving.

    i wouldn't mind seeing that sort of thing again around here.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    Earl has been dropping balls and nobody ever mentions it cause he's revered as a demi-god on this blog.

    The leading receivers in the NFL normally top the dropped balls list at the same time. More targets = more dropped balls. Just a thought.

    What would Cutty do with Willie Gault, Dennis McKinnon and Dennis Gentry?

    (looks around)

    Hunh .... bitches .... huh ?

    Can you ever imagine Cutty handing it off to Forte and then Forte hits Cutty in the endzone with a diving catch?

    {IRISH! STOPPIT!!!}

    Nope.

    (inspects own fingernails in a ladylike fashion)

  • dennis gentry. tecmo bowl's greatest return man.

  • In reply to evantonio:

    For 81 trivia points, what was Gentry's number?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    29.

    that was from my brain. not the google.

    so many hours playing tecmo bowl. that game is the reason i'm a bears fan.

  • God damnit Irish, what fucking drops by Earl are you talking about? What game are you watching man?

    You're talking about Gault, McKinnon and fucking Dennis Gentry??? ARRGHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Gault is Johnny fucking Knox,
    McKinnon is Roy Williams
    Gentry is Devin Hester

    You're going to make my motherfucking head explode man.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    That's the general idea Waffle.

    But I see what you did there. You thought I wouldn't notice your two deliberate mistakes ..... because as everybody knows .....

    (paradiddle)

    .... unlike Johnny Knox and Devin Hester ......

    (does Steve-Martin-pleased-with-himself-face circa The Jerk)

    .... Gault and Gentry were NFL wide receivers !

    (BADA BING! KA-TISH!)

    Thank you thank you ... yes I'm here all week .... tickets available in the foyer ... thank you, no you're too kind

    (taps microphone)

    Is this thing on?

  • In reply to Waffle:

    Johnny, don't get bent on Irish stuff. Much of it is not worth a reply.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Or a read apparently, since I've been after Bostic to start.

  • fb_avatar

    What would Cutler do with Covert, Bortz, Hilgenberg, Thayer and Van Horne in front of him?

  • In reply to Big Mike:

    what would cutler do with joe montana's football iq?

  • In reply to evantonio:

    Wear shape-ups?

  • Awesome. Nearly shit my pants laughing.

  • yeah. what he said. =]

  • In reply to Big Mike:

    He'd force it in places it doesn't belong. He'd stand around holding the ball down around his ankles. He'd still be trying to get rid of the ball as he's being sacked. The usual. He thinks he knows better than everyone.
    He'd be exactly the same guy.

    He acts smart, but he's not.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    I think we ranked only 2nd behind Peyton on converting 3rd and longs going into the game. Not sure if that's still the case, but relying on converting 3rd and longs AND turnovers is not a sustainable winning philosophy.

  • Dude. 35%. Nothing to see here.

  • The Giants are allowing 50% 3rd down conversions. Basically if you ATTEMPT a third down play, you've got a good chance of getting a first down.

    Of course, that's not the fault of THE ELITE Eli Manning.

  • Repost.

    These types of weeks happen to QBs. Obviously, Cutler was off. It's sort of like basketball. A player hits 80% on free throw, then every blue moon, he just can't hit a free throw.

    Last year an elite QB threw 5 int to his arch-rival.

    That arch-rival? The Falcons. The QB? None other than Brees.

    That's right, just last year Brees chucked 5 Int in Hotlanta.

    http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=321129001

    He's also had other 4 Ints game, but that more aptly parallels Cutler's game this past Sun.

    I'm not giving him a pass since I'm an infamous Cutler agnostic and these types of game are why, but I also don't have tunnel vision. I realize that good qbs have bad games.

    I'm actually a lot more worried about our D and Specials because when those play poorly, it puts an absurd amount of pressure on the QB and O to be perfect. That's what happened last year with Brees. His D and Specials were crap, and he felt like he had to push.

    I think that's what took place in that Lion's game, and if it continues, more performances like these might pop-up. Either way, we won't really find out who the "real" Jay is until the end of the season. We need to make the playoffs to find that out.

  • You know the funny thing was?For the 2nd week in a row Jay and the offense started on fire. He looked to be unstoppable. Then, again, shit breaks down and he falls apart in the 2nd and 3rd quarters.

    I don't know if it's because the play are scripted or what, but the offense needs to find a modicum of consistency. I don't know how it's possible to go from looking unstoppable to looking incapable so quickly.

  • In reply to Shady:

    We have to remember that this is a whole new offensive system in place. Lots of moving parts. Consistency will be the hardest achievement for us (or any team). Other teams are struggling with that too. Look at Seattle. They looked like utter dog crap and should have lost. I'm not sure the Chiefs score more than 14 points a game on O. Even the Pats are struggling and they've had the same coach/qb/system for over a decade.

    The only team right now that is kicking ass on a consistent basis is the Broncos.

    I'm pretty sure we all agreed in PS that the first half of the season would be rocky and that we would just have to scrape by, and that's exactly what we're doing. If we beat the Aints, all this will be forgotten and the Lion's game will just be viewed as, "Well, division game at their place." If we lose to them, then it's time to make some changes (naturally, not at QB).

  • How about that Matty Schaub?

    My fantasy defense thanks you Matty Schaub. However, the downside is that people in Texas want you dead.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Worst case scenario: Bears trade Cutler to Texans for a 1st and JJ Watt.

    Bang Bang.

  • Jay Cutler will be a free agent in the offseason. I think the only time they could trade him is between now and this year's trade deadline, which is around Halloween.

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    you're dumb.

  • That would be an awesome trade. You're very bold sir - but I salute you for the size of your cojones, You opened u[ the can of worms Butch.

    See that? It was Butch. You all saw that.

    It was Butch.

  • That's my chiefs boyeeeeeee !!! Don't sass my Chiefs !!
    (does chopping motion)

    Alex Montana threw three TD passes - in the same game !!
    I think that's a record.

    And check out Dexter McCluster's return bitches and bitchettes. Then come back with all your Hester-lovin' comments. You know who can't move like that? Devin Hester.

    {But Irish .. he's the GOAT ... uh ...the Bears' blocking is ...}

    STFU!!

    (see? Can't do that on WCG either .. .why ? Because ...}

    Dane Noble is a cock.

  • I'm still on the hester and conte bandwagon (as in bandwagon the fuck out of town)... game 4 and still haven't seen sheite from either that makes me want to keep them.

    Hester... hegone!

    Conte... converted corner who is an ok safety, unless we don't have any dline push, then he sucks and misses tackles.

    sigh. when will you start listening to me.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    In fairness to the corn-rowed believer .. he did set the franchise return yardage record 2 weeks ago .. .cos .. y'know .. we were letting people score so many TDs.

  • yes. on a rain soaked worst field in the nfl... where the other team's fucking rookie scored a TD on the opening kickoff. right?

    is that what your were talking about Irish?

    SMFH.

  • 1 good game in the last 20 Homeslice. I reluctantly crept back onto the fence for Devin after the Minny game. Its looking more and more flukish with each return opportunity. I'm packing my shit and getting back on MB's wagon.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    you've always been walking alongside johnny. welcome aboard.

    Oh, and while we're talking about my bandwagons.... this...

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    . @Aaron_Leming Awful safety play against the run was the most glaring negative outside Cutler's turnovers.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Whoa. I wanted Hester traded while he was worth something, still do. I'm not a fan of a guy who disrespected my team for two or more years - I just paid props to McCluster, who has moves. Devin's are gone.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I know you hate the white guys, but how can people not be pointing out how shitty DJ Williams is playing?

    9 tackles through 4 games. NINE. Are you fucking kidding me? Three more quarters of that and our MLB finishes the season with 36 tackles?
    Huh?

    You'd think Bostic would play, but he'd go broke from fines because he has no clue how to stop from hitting people late. He will pay a fine for that brain-damaged move on the onside kick yesterday.

    Damnit we should have traded up for Kuechly

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    I don't hate white guys... since I iz one.

    I hate shitty free safeties. Since we can't seem to bring in anything but... exactly that. And for the record major penis is black and hate that he's one of our safeties too.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    You know the irony is that Mike Brown actually tweeted he LIKES how Conte plays.

    Also, stop hating white guys!

    It's like that one episode of The League when Ruxin and Kevin won't eat the Squish because the chef is white. HATE.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Suishi, not squish (wtf would squish taste like? don't wanna know)

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    yeah, I saw that.

    He was just trying to be supportive. What do you think he thought about conte's play so far this year?

    We should ask Cam Worrell.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I know you don't hate white guys, MB. Just yanking your chain.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Are we worried about Bostic's bank balance? Start him. Nothing to lose.

  • In reply to Shady:

  • Loved the second one - even though he contradicted himself twice ... and the Beatles "were not just a band" .... you're right, the first one is a no-talent wanker on a casio.

  • Ha. I just find it funny that someone did a lounge version of Rage Against the Machine. It would be like a lounge version of "Closer".

    True, he does contradict himself, but I'm pretty sure he was being ironic. I mean, he's setting down all these commandments, then commands, "Always think for yourself."

    This seems like one of those Wittgenstein-ian linguistic paradoxes like "I'm always wrong." Wait, what?

  • Congrats Jeff. Can't wait.

  • Irish. Earl catches the fuck out of the ball. All that dude does is make first downs. He once lacerated his liver on a catch. If you can hang onto the ball while having your liver torn, you can catch.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Irish does not remember much. He sees Earl drop a ball yesterday (the first I remember in a long time), in a situation where it was better to go incomplete then get tackled outside the end zone.

    Then of course, Earl get the TD on the next play. That one Irish won't remember. Just like the long catch over the middle when the Bears were down by 14 negated on what looked to be a phantom holding call (though maybe Mills did hold on that play, as the only replay I saw was Long owning Suh on that one).

    We all have our hero things though. I like Hester too much.

    Others like Mike Brown too much - a guy who could not stay on the field, and when he did benefited hugely from having the best pass coverage linebacker in the history of the NFL handling half his coverage responsibilities. You know, that guy called Urlacher.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    I miss 2006 Urlacher. This defense is not very good. Do we miss over the hill Latch and Izzy that much? What else is it? Marinelli? I would think these guys still know how to rush the passer and own their gaps. Don't get it. Were gonna need 45next week

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    An URlacher sixed guy is what we'd need agaisnt Graham. Bostic is identical (6'1 245) with DJ - but he's likely got more speed and hunger.

  • Urlacher-sized, even ...

  • Bostic is not faster and "hungrier" than DJ. What does that even mean?

    DJ Williams is one of the fastest linebackers in the league and has been regarded as such for his entire career. You do know that he played in the NFL before the Bears right?

    The Bears will be in nickel regardless and Jon Bostic, the rookie linebacker who has trouble in pass coverage, will not be covering the next Tony Fucking Gonzalez. IRISH GODDAMNIT.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    http://www.memesay.com/m/MTQzMw==

    yeah, these numbers totally suck:

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/2170/mike-brown

    Dave, conte couldn't get these numbers playing fucking madden 25 dude.

    Mike brown was a real safety. yes, he got injured 3 out of 10 years. 6 16 game years and one 15 game year.

    Just COMMON MAN! SMFH.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I didn't say Conte could get those numbers. I said Mike Brown benefited hugely from having Urlacher on the field.

    One thing I will say, is Conte would look much better with the 2001-2006 Urlacher playing in front of him. As would any safety.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Okay okay Earl's not an issue - just breaking balls there - but let's not pretend the O revolves around him. Beast is the work-horse, even Alshon ahead of Earl. Earl had what, 6 passes before the Detroit game?

    Earl did make a great catch for a score, there's no issue with Earl. But Beast is entitled to drop a few. I remember Roddy White leading the NFL in receptions and drops. It's part of the game.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Why doesn't Jay throw it to him more then? It's like he's only interested in getting big gains instead of just moving the chains. I dunno.

  • Congrats on the move Jeff. Looking forward to it.

    The whole team looked lackluster yesterday. Hopefully it was just a hiccup. The DL and special teams concern me. The big coaching mistakes were activating Ford over Joe Anderson and having Paea and Collins switch spots.

  • 3-0 in FF this week, biatches.

    Finally got a win in one league to take the undefeated alien Irish down.

  • Yeah, congrats. Hard to believe it was the Bears D and Julius Thomas that let me down. How can the Broncos score 52 points, but JT gets a measly 4 ....smh

  • Trap game, we were riding high and lost, I didn't feel good about this game last week. Cutler was bad but not alone in that category, just happens to be qb.

    First Bear game I've missed in years on account of being in Cabo working on a sunburn.

    My thoughts in preseason were that we'd sweep the Vikes and split with the rest of the division, I'm sticking with that.

    Another tough game coming up but it's at Soldier and those Saints are ridin' high, right into our little TRAP(game). Bear down, fellas.

  • The latest IPCC report from the UN for policymakers came out. They've been grossly wrong, but give them credit for doubling down.

    So now they are 95% sure that humans are causing warming, up from 90% from their 2007 assessment. The last 15 years don't count, because it's just a "blip". But 30 and 50 year data is "relevant". Now these hand picked "experts" are almost positive that over half the warming since 1951 is man made. No explanation what caused the rest of the warming.

    The average computer model used by the IPCC has exaggerated warming by over 400%!!!! 400%!!!!

    These asshats have also made a claim that the Earth is at it's warmest in 1400 years. Over 80% of the Earth is uninhabited, and that's a generous estimate. It defies logic to know what the average temperature of the Earth was 50 years ago.

    The Earth has been warming since the end of the Wisconsonian ice age 10,000 plus years ago. There were glaciers in Kansas at the time.

    Is warming a bad thing? Food production has dramatically increased since the Green Revolution in the 1970's, with dramatically less land used for food production.

    I'm against global government policies to reduce greenhouse gases because it's a giant waste of resources. The money would be more wisely spent on clean water and other conservation efforts.

    The "Precautionary Principle" is illogical.

    Got any relevant links/citations, Cormonster? I'd love to show that to some people...

    Here's a good overview of the IPCC report for policymakers. Lots of links in the article. There are also links to lots of articles in orange on the left down the page towards the end of the article.

    The amount of carbon dioxide we produce compared to nature has got to be tiny. Once I heard about 'carbon taxes' and that cock-juggler Al Gore started getting all 'green' red flags went up. Just a way to squeeze more cash out of the sheep. If we didn't have global warming, we'd still be in the middle of an ice age. I like and snow and everything, but .....

  • Just follow the money, as the old cliche goes.

    I'm against the idea that CO2 is the driving force in global warming. It's a trace gas; most can't even define what a part per million is. A majority of the population has no idea that all of the planet's green stuff live off that 0.00039 percent. Ignorance is bliss; and most people are perfectly happy telling other people what to do.

    That last clause is what its been about all along. And profiteering swapping fictions called "offsets".

  • I think the reason Lovie spent 20% of any given game looking at the sky was that he was repairing the ozone hole - with his brain.

  • The Sour Carimi's are UNDEFEATED in Shady's Gloryhole League, peoplez.

  • Speaking of glory hole, the League season 5 - Jebus Cristo Tonto!

    Come on, they went and got the tasteless car and drove it through the 3rd wall. AIDS cocktail? RU serious?

    I had to stop during the Cutlet episode. Could. not. watch. Jay trying to be funny.

    Good idea for a show, just terrible writing. As soon as BB finished I got straight back into season 1. That's writing. TIGHT, TIGHT, TIGHT!

  • The spreads for next week :

    We're 1 point favorites over the Saints?

    Are Green Bay 7 points better than Detroit?

    Denver only have to beat Dallas by 7.

    Atlanta -9 at home over the Jets actually looks like a good bet.

    Looks like a tough week though.

    Seattle (away) have to beat Indy by a FG - has anybody watched Indy games?

    KC need to beat a Fitzy-led Titans by more than a FG in Tennessee.
