    That’s nice Jeff. Speaking of giving things away, I wonder how many yards the Bears will give away to AP?

    • ha. i see what you did there.

      • Trac

        If the bears can plug our opponents run game, I may just have to do the jitterbug.

  • Doc Nitty

    Just read your last post, blogfather. Couldn’t agree more. You play. to win. the games. Gotsta go down swinging.

    • DaBearsBlog

      Of course. You think Marc Trestman doesn’t want to win every single game in his first year as a head coach?

      • Trac

        aha! So you admit it, Trestmans philosophy may change on the matter over the years.

      Hey Doc, how the heck are ya? I wish you and the family a fantabulous Thanksgiving and Holiday weekend.

      • Doc Nitty

        Thanks for asking Trac. Been sick as a dog this fall. Just one sickness after another. The one we have now features a terrific sore throat and a blasphemous cough among other things. And when it hits you , it stays for days. Other than that, doing just dandy, good sir. Back atcha!

  • MB30SD

    speaking of Herm Edwards… I kinda love him.

      Only four minutes into it but what an excellent presentation…

      • MB30SD

        Watch all 3 parts tobi… he’s an amazing orator.

    • SC Dave

      Watched it all. Good stuff for sure – lessons for every one of us most likely.

      Thanks MB.

  • DaBearsBlog

    So are any of the regulars down here coming to the Otis Wilson event? VIP treatment will be afforded you.

    • Ghost of Waffle

      you’d treat us to VIP’s? Russian strippers, reasonable drink prices and a lost and found for your coat…..that you know you’ll leave there.

      • CanadaBear

        Not everyone loses their coat Johnny. If you forget your coat in the winter here in Canada, you just might end up a Darwin Award Winner. If I could make the party I’d volunteer to keep track of your coat. Of course, I’m easily distracted …

        • Ghost of Waffle

          I’ll have you know I haven’t lost a coat since the 2nd green bay game of last year when the refs decided to call more offensive PI on Jeffrey in one game than on the entire NFC North for the whole year.
          Damn refs.

          • Viva

            Please refrain from reliving brutal memories.
            I may have to remind you that Dave Wanny traded away the 4th pick in the draft to Seattle for Rick Meirer (who had already been declared a bust, because every time he threw the ball it looked like it was into the wind.) GP please provide photo…

    Packers guard John Sitton calls out Gym Shorts and his players…They go after quarterbacks, their entire defense takes cheap shots all the time. That’s what they do, that’s who they are,” Sitton said. “They’re a bunch of dirtbags or scumbags. That’s just how they play. That’s how they’re coached. That starts with their frickin’ coach. That starts with their head coach, Schwartz. He’s a dick, too,” Sitton said. “I wouldn’t want to play for him. It starts with him and their D-coordinator and their D-line coach. They’re all just scumbags and so are the D-line.”

      • BearFanInDE

        According to the experts, everybody knows that..but by calling them out, he is putting his teammates in jeapordy by upsetting the Lions before the game..To his credit Stephen A said it was Lon overdue…

        • CanadaBear

          I don’t think calling them out will make a difference in the Kitties play. After Suh stomped on that guys arm, this rivalry was always going to be heated. The Kitties have been called out by at least a half dozen different players. Maybe the NFL might want to look into their style of play instead of fining players for borderline (at best) hits. Every time I see the Kitties play there are always late hits, head shots, diving at knees, piling on, hitting out of bounds, etc.

    • Doc Nitty

      While I love seeing somebody finally say publicly what we all know, I’m reminded of the Raiders and Steelers of the 70’s. Sometimes when you good and err on the rough side (Butkus) people are going to call you dirty. Which is to say, I guess, that if the Lions do end up winning multiple championships (ha ha ha ha ha ha) …sorry….I can’t even finish…..crying…..and laughing…..out loud…..

      • SC Dave

        I remember Butkus being asked about whether he’d get kick out of the league today, and his response was really close, if not exactly, “I’d adapt”.

        One of a kind, that man.

  • Viva

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Viva

      Fuck Gym Shorts.
      BACK THE PACK (one day only)!!!

      • MB30SD

        Fuck ’em both, but I’ll take the pack to win.

      • bearsfantillend

        can we root for a tie? will that help out playoff picture?

        • MikeBrownhadaPosse

          It sure wouldn’t hurt!

    • SC Dave

      Back at ya, Viva!

  • Sactowns#1

    Ok my lady wants this but I really have no idea what he 47 is reffering to. The bears finished 7th in 1947 and if it’s for Conti I’m def not buying it.

    • AlbertInTucson

      I can’t come up with a Bears connection for that. Most outstanding #47 for the Bears I can recall was receiver, Johnny Morris.

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    If I’m not around this weekend, Happy Thanksgiving to all you jive turkeys.
    Love you guys.

    • Sactowns#1

      Wait… did you just call me a JT?

    • SC Dave

      Back at you, bro.

    • MB30SD

      likewise my brother.

      When I finally find someone to take my money and give me the plastic and silicon box, we will hook it back up.

      …and it’s Jive Ass Turkey to you!

  • MB30SD

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving y’alls!

    this is an awesome thanksgiving day game history-graphic… with us front and center… actually, both of ‘us’

    Last Bears game on Turkey Day I can recall, I think we had Craig Krenzel at QB. He went down and Jonathan Quinn came into the game, with a little urine stain on his pants.

    It was against the Cowboys and we faced Drew Henson. Henson got pulled in favor of Vinnie Testaverde.

    Yes, that’s right, Vinnie was a Cowboy. You wanted to block the memory out of your animus, Assassin’s Creed style, but no – it is still there.

    • MB30SD

    • CanadaBear

      I remember hearing all these great things about Quinn’s athleticism, the big arm, etc. Unfortunately when someone was putting even the slightest pressure on, he’d fold up like a wet taco. Fuck Me!

      • BerwynBomber

        I’ll raise your Quinn memories some Krenzel memories who, IRRC, was so worried about protecting the ball that he took every sack imaginable and would have needed, on average, five or ten seconds of spotless pass protection to work through his progressions.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Does the name Chad Hutchinson ring a bell?

      • AlbertInTucson

        Those were some VERY DARK quarterback days for the Bears. Which is saying a LOT for a franchise RIFE with dark QB days.

        • gpldan

          Do you remember how Drew Henson was the White Bo Jackson? A supposed dual threat in baseball and football. I guess it takes real skill to be a bust in TWO sports.

    • Cormonster

      I was in Antigua for that game. Watched a few drives in the 2nd half and decided to go back to the pool bar.

      The best turkey day game ever was when Doug Williams (22) returned the OT kickoff for a TD.

      • gpldan

        Vince Evans finest moment as an athlete. His poise, to pull that ball down and run it in with no time left on the clock – that was great stuff. That video still gets me to say “come ON Man!” as if it’s happening live.

      • AlbertInTucson

        That would be “Dave” Williams.

        • Cormonster

          I knew that. Not sure why I wrote “Doug”. Thanks for the correction.

          • AlbertInTucson

            No sweat. I do that SAME thing all the time here, Cor.

            Brain says “80’s Bears Running Back”.
            Fingers type “80s Bucs/Redskins QB.”

      • AlbertInTucson

        I was at my soon-to-be-Mother-in-Law’s house.

        Since they came back from 14 down in the 4th to set up that O.T., that has to be a “Top 5 Five Ever” Bears’ finish. Comparable to the Mike Bown 49ers game.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Best Bears game on Thanksgiving has to be before many of you were born.

      1980.

      Here it is with Bear announcer , Joe McConnel, I believe, on the call

    The Packers are officially in “Backup QB Hell”.

    Unfamilar territory for them with the durable Narcissus and Mr. Rodgers at the helm since the 1990s, but a neighboorhod Bear fans know all too well.

    The Lions turned it over THREE times today and STILL rang up 550+ yards of offense.

    Just to refresh everybody’s memory, Forte had 20 carries for 88 yards and 10 catches for 73 yards rushing in the Bears 31-30 win over the Vikings in week 2 Chicago.

    The Lions turned it over THREE times today and STILL rang up 550+ yards of offense.

    3 times in the FIRST HALF and they still led by 7 at the break.

  • AlbertInTucson

    The heat’s on, Bears (Cue Glen Frey music),

    Sunday is another “must win” situation.
    You can NOT afford another division / conference loss at this point.

    Plus, let’s face it: 6-6 is just a holding pattern for a hard landing at “Irrelevance Field”.
