NFC North Division Title Bout Game Day Thread

| December 29th, 2013

x

I have gone back and forth on the meaning of day’s division title contest for Jay Cutler. Part of me thinks it’s the game that will define his Bears tenure to this point and set the tone of his relationship with the fans moving forward. Part of me thinks while it’s an important game, it is only Cutler’s eleventh start in this new system and Cutler should not be expected to be Aaron Rodgers…yet. As the game has gotten closer I am leaning towards the former. I think the folks saying today is the biggest regular season of Jay Cutler’s career are dead right. I hope his play, his intensity, his decision making, reflect that.

Enjoy sixty minutes for the division crown.

    Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;

    Or close the wall up with our English dead.

    In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man

    As modest stillness and humility:

    But when the blast of war blows in our ears,

    Then imitate the action of the tiger;

    Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,

    Disguise fair nature with hard-favour’d rage;

    Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;

    Let pry through the portage of the head

    Like the brass cannon; let the brow o’erwhelm it

    As fearfully as doth a galled rock

    O’erhang and jutty his confounded base,

    Swill’d with the wild and wasteful ocean.

    Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,

    Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit

    To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.

    Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!

    Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,

    Have in these parts from morn till even fought

    And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:

    Dishonour not your mothers; now attest

    That those whom you call’d fathers did beget you.

    Be copy now to men of grosser blood,

    And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,

    Whose limbs were made in England, show us here

    The mettle of your pasture; let us swear

    That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;

    For there is none of you so mean and base,

    That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.

    I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,

    Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:

    Follow your spirit, and upon this charge

    Cry ‘God for Halas, Chicago … .GO BEARS!!!!!’

    • bearsfantillend

      Cry Havoc, and let slip the dogs of war!

  • Big Mike

    I hate the packers. Fuck them in their fucking faces

    • Big Bob

      The Packers Fucked The Bears in their faces….pulled out and came all over them

      • Big Bob

        Go Bears????….Not anymore this season….

  • Cormonster

    Bear Down! Making the trek from Milwaukee to Soldier Field right now, and I anticipate getting a victory and losing my voice. Seen my 88 year old frail Grandma yesterday for a few hours. Most of the conversation revolved around the Bears beating the Fucking Fudge. She’s a great woman.

    • Jokey

      I’ll be there too – you tailgating anywhere beforehand?

    • Doc Nitty

      Have fun, my mang.

      Go BEARS!

  • Maddbearfan

    Me thinks the weather is gonna be a factor as well with 40mph wind gusts and temps dropping like a rock.

  • Rodgers Dead

    my 2yr old, dressed in his BMarsh jersey, threw his sucker down on the ground, picked up a tiny football and dove onto the couch just now. He then growled like a Bear and then spiked it in victory.

  • Rodgers Dead

    I am excited for Marshall, Cutty and the boys today. A win vs your biggest rival gets you to the post season. Marshall has never been to the playoffs and Cutler needs this game to get the support he deserves here at home. A victory today at the lakefront would electrify the team and the city.
    I think Alshon and marshall each go for 100 today. Huge first downs with Forte on the flip 9 run and a well timed screen pass.
    bear down

  • DaMurph

    The wind has really picked up, the temp is steadily dropping. Can’t imagine what game time is gonna be like. I wish MB was here for this game, he would get a real taste of Chicago winter! BEAR DOWN!

  • BearFanInDE

    We cannot wait for Cutler’s 30th start in this system before he can deliver results. How come some other QBs are able to deliver in new offensive systems in year 1? Heck! Kyle Orton put up monster numbers in that year in a new system in Denver.

    • Rodgers Dead

      he already delivered results this year as did McCown. It’s not a fucking video game. The other teams get paid millions to stop the O remember?

      • Rodgers Dead

        also didn’t Orton go 8-8 in denver?

        • BearFanInDE

          If the franchise bears qb cannot beat the Packers at home to go to the playoffs with these weapons……

          • Rodgers Dead

            we know DE, that’s why it’s a huge game.

        • Rodgers Dead

          lol, yeah, lost 8 of his last 10 to go 8-8. Perspective.

      • Rodgers Dead

        befoire he got hurt he was top 7 or 8 in several categories as well. Why can’t people use a little perspective?

      • BearFanInDE

        It depends on your definition of results.

        I’d love to see him carry this team into the playoffs and beyond. But if tht doesn’t happen, lets not use the ‘new system’ crutch.

    • bearsfantillend

      No new system is good to go from the start of the season, yet they were putting up points, the offense was really starting to gel by week 6 when cutler went down, and Jay was on pace at that time to have a monster season yards wise.

      • BearFanInDE

        Very valid points. But this game is do or die. With this defense, he has to put the game on his shoulders and take us to the next level.

        • Rodgers Dead

          The Offense and Special teams have to ball out and the Defense needs a couple key third down stops and consistent hits on Rodgers.

  • Rodgers Dead

    As of 11:54 am CST I will not be responding to trollish comments that don’t refer to Rodgers dying or the Bears succeeding. Even Terry “elite because of his surrounding talent” Bradshaw has picked the Bears. If he can be positive then we all can god damnit.

    • BearFanInDE

      Terry picked the Bears?! Allright! No more negativity! Rodgers…..Dead!

    • gpldan

      Bradshaw and Burt Reynolds once tag teamed Sally Field.

      #truestory

      • Rodgers Dead

        damn.

      • bearsfantillend

        not a sight i wanted to picture.

        • Rodgers Dead

          gidget got spit roasted

        • gpldan

          Merry Christmas! Eastbound and Down!

          • Irish Sweetness

            “…..Loaded up and truckin, we’re gonna do sumthin they say can’t be done …. we got a loooooong way to go and a short time to get there ……”

      • Irish Sweetness

        Brad was inside Sally, Burt was inside Brad. Ew. NTTAWWT.

    • Doc Nitty

      Waffle is right. We need the entirety of the Chicago Bears fan base to do nothing but envisioning Cutler throwing 400+ to Marshall and company, The D reverting to monsters, and Hester taking the rock to the house in a record breaking performance of the ages. Pessimism can wait. Positive thoughts only. We cannot be defeated. We will not be defeated.

      Today, we stand triumphantly over our fallen rivals. Today, We win the North.

      Go Bears.!

    • johnnywad

      So did Hub Arkush. Called the Bears win his five star lock of the week.

  • gpldan

    I’m glad Jeff has come down on the side of this being the biggest game of Cutler’s career. It’s more than that, it’s the biggest game for the Bears organization in 20 years outside of, arguably, the 2006 Season Super Bowl.

    It defines if this new regime will step up, or be the Packers Bitch for another regime.

    This is Bears Groundhog Day. That is what it is. Don’t drive angry!

    It’s showtime Phil!

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      I’ve been mulling over your battle cry that this is the most important game in a looooooooooong time since you posted it a few days/threads back. Couldn’t decide.

      Yer right, it is. This is enormous. so +1 (x’s 7, Halas’ number, see Avatar)

  • Trac

    This game. This moment. Savor it boys. The pain and the glory of every snap has lead us here.

  • DSupreme

    Mutha FUCK the Pack! We’re winning the division today at home in ChiCity! BEAR DOWN!!!

  • Viva

    I BELIEVE IN JAY CUTLER.
    I BELIEVE IN MARK TRESTMAN.
    I BELIEVE IN OUR O.

    RODGERS FUCKING DEAD

    GET SOME

    • Rodgers Dead

      i approve of this message.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Yup, some of us have bashed him all week in trade-rumor-mongering, but that’s just dollars and cents. We stand behind him today. Cannot lose to the Fudge at Soldier Field again for a Division. Cannot.

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      I’m reigning in the negativity today, man. All in on yer entire post.

  • johnnywad

    Aside from Cutty and Co., I’ll be watching Kyle Long closely today. Something tells me that kid has the perfect mental makeup to see this game for what it is, and rise to it. We’ll see the first time he gets to the outside. Can’t wait

    • Rodgers Dead

      i’d love to see a fake dive left and flip to Forte out to the right with Kyle Long and Mills along with Marshall blocking the edges. The play to the left side works well too.

    • Irish Sweetness

      It’s been a long time since we were excited about a right guard. Did anyone ever mention Kurt Becker’s name in ’85/’6?

      • Rodgers Dead

        people would have been blowing Becker publicly if the GM had been previously selecting guys like Noname McSuckscock, J’Marcus Webb, Chris Spencer, Josh fucking Beekman, etc.

  • Still a Doug Plank Fan

    I’m going to be pulling hard for Wright & Conte today…I think they’ve had their heads handed to them (most of it deserved) all season long. I want this to be the one day they memorize Irish’s paraphrased poem, and bring hell.

  • bearsfantillend

    Off Football – but did anyone see Silva break his leg last night? pretty gruesome.

    • Rodgers Dead

      crazy. the risk of the leg kick.

    • Doc Nitty

      Good thing he’s got seven more.

  • RyanBear

    Go Bears!!!!

    • Big Bob

      And keep going…the off season is upon you

  • underway

    Anybody got a link or will have a link for the game. My damn directv dish just blew over… NO TV til tomorrow…

  • Shady

    That Carolina defense is fun to watch. Good work Chico.

    • Doc Nitty

      I got Ghosts for Xmas. We should game it up sometime

      mbearce

      • Shady

        You hear that MB, just get another PS3 on the cheap.

  • SC Dave

    Well boys, it’s time to don my #9 jersey (good for another four seasons now – yay!) and head off to the sports bar. Bear down, lads. Bear. Down.

    • SC Dave

      Oh… and fuck the Packers. Right. In. The. Face.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Nervous.

    • johnnywad

      Excited

  • Still a Doug Plank Fan

    Today. In mere minutes now, the biggest game of our past 3 seasons happens.

    WRIGHT.
    CONTE.
    CUTLER.
    HESTER.
    PEPPERS.

    NO WORRIES.

    Trestman vs. McCarthy. Matchup of the Season.

    • johnnywad

      Check Hester and Conte off. Are you psychic?

      • Still a Doug Plank Fan

        It’s their day…they will rise.

  • RyanBear

    Buck and fox already showing the packer lovefest. Go Bears!!!

  • johnnywad

    Like to see Devin juiced

  • tobijohn

    Shit calls begin – now….

    • tobijohn

      Told ya, the fix is in…

      • SC Dave

        So it would appear

  • SC Dave

    Time for a pick 6

  • DaMurph

    Leslie Frazier might be looking for a job as a defensive coordinator after the season

    • tobijohn

      Don’t know if any defensive coordinator could do much with this bunch

      • DaMurph

        Maybe not but he was REAL good when he had that job.

      • DaMurph

        I just have no faith in Tucker

  • RyanBear

    Of course Cutty is getting his usual 9min break on the sidelines.

  • DaMurph

    can we fucking tackle?

  • RyanBear

    Cutler will take exactly 45 seconds off the click next drive.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    MB….CONTE!!!

  • DaMurph

    MB’s man Conte!

  • tobijohn

    As the Chinese say, even a blind pig occasionally finds corn

    • DaMurph

      Broken clock is right twice a day

  • SC Dave

    There ya go, sadpf!!

  • Irish Sweetness

    Interception Mr. Rodgers. We own you. It’s OUR day today. OUR house.

  • tobijohn

    Good man Jay…

  • RyanBear

    What a throw and catch!

  • tobijohn

    No going for it on 4th

    • tobijohn

      Disregard..

  • DaMurph

    My stomach is knotted up already!

  • underway

    TD!!!!!!

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    YESSSS!!!
    Cutler is looking sharp. That was a patient progression and accurate throw.

    FORTE TD.

  • RyanBear

    Points off turnover. Thanks aaron!

    • tobijohn

      Well, sort of. They started at their own 20…

  • Viva

    If our OLINE continues to play this well we will crush them

    • SC Dave

      We need at least a couple more stops

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    I still can’t believe Conte made a play. That’s like a sign from Papa Bear.

  • SC Dave

    My biggest. Cheer so far was when cutler threw first down out of the back of the endzone. Live to make another play, in this case, td to matt

  • DaMurph

    Briggs looks slow and overweight

    • tobijohn

      Someone a few threads back coined the nickname Biggsy Briggsy…

      • DaMurph

        Drinkin, eatin, makin babies, thats how he rolls!

  • DaMurph

    OH MY

  • Irish Sweetness

    OUR house. OUR day. OUR division.

    • DaMurph

      We hope Irish, we hope

    • SC Dave

      THEIR qb

  • underway

    I guess to aikman discount double douche cannot make a bad pass

  • DaMurph

    Come on Jay, dont overlook Jeffery out there

    • tobijohn

      I think he could have run for the first down…

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    We can’t afford to squander offensive possessions with our D.

  • SC Dave

    Three andout after thebpick… LOOK AT SOMEONE BESIDE MARSHALL, JAY

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Frey is having a hell of a game. Most impressive D player so far.

  • DaMurph

    come on!!!!!!!!

    • tobijohn

      Said it before – fix is in

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    BS

  • DaMurph

    another freebie for the pack

  • DaMurph

    why didnt the ref just go blow AAron while hes at it

  • RenoBear

    Wtf refs… Oh yeah that’s right follow the league mandate of protect dickhead Rodgers st all costs… Fags

  • tobijohn

    The powers that be want the Pack to win. The bears are playing both the Pack and the refs

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Rodger’s looks rattled. Rare.

    • Irish Sweetness

      We should be zero blitzing him every second play. Either force him to make mistakes or hurt that bone.

  • Maddbearfan

    That was a total horeshit call..WTF..how you gonna stop in midair??????

    • SC Dave

      Tbat was as bad a call as ive seen in a long time. Id think the mob money was on gb

  • DaMurph

    Chicken D even put his hand down trying to keep his weight off Mrs Rodgers

  • Doc Nitty

    Worst call ever!

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    We need to put up a TD here and step on their adam’s apple.

  • DaMurph

    You cant fumble anymore Devin

    • underway

      He won’t in a bears uni anymore after this season

  • DaMurph

    comeon Martellus, we are paying you BIG bucks!

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    What’s going on with our O? WTF.

    • SC Dave

      Cutler is not the man, its that simple. A real franchise qb wpuld have us up by at leastb11 by now

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Got Podleshed again!

  • DaMurph

    Biggest game of the year and Podlesh punts like shit!

    • tobijohn

      he’s the anti-clutch punter

  • tobijohn

    Bears are playing against the Pack, the refs and Adam Podlesh…

  • RyanBear

    Offensive play calling is horrid. Cutler inconsistently sucks. Pod leash sucks Hopefully McCown is in soon

  • RenoBear

    Please cut podlesh after this game. He is a turd

  • Maddbearfan

    Unbelievable…well the Packers have the momentum..we’re fucked. 2nd and 12 and he runs it up the middle…….

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Can’t believe our D is outplaying our O.

    • johnnywad

      Its weird. The angles in the run game have been decentt.

  • SC Dave

    Cutler v g.b = we lose. And goddamn it, these assholes will defend him and blame the defense after all the FUCKING THREE AND OUTS

    • johnnywad

      Yeah. Its too bad Jay didn’t jump on that live ball just sitting there or tackle Boykin.

      • SC Dave

        Cutler = loser. The numbers speak for themselves.

  • bearsfantillend

    WTF!!!!

  • DaMurph

    you kiddin me?

  • underway

    Anderson… pick up the damn football…

  • DaMurph

    that is poor coaching if you dont stress playing through a play

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Ball was going forward!

  • underway

    This is stuff u learn in high school.

  • RyanBear

    These Bears defenders suck. All of them.

  • underway

    No whistle… keep fuckin playing! !!!!!!!!

  • tobijohn

    hate to say it but the Lovie D guys would have been on that..

  • DaMurph

    players dont know whether to hit, whether to not hit, all this calls and fines are fucking up this game in so many different ways

    • tobijohn

      The ball was laying there. A Bear should have picked it up

      • Still a Doug Plank Fan

        Bingo. You never stop until the whistle blows. And THAT defensive reaction was the ONLY thing that BLEW.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Boykin fumbled the ball, can he advance his own fumble?

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Nice vet move, Anderson.

  • RenoBear

    I fucking hate Green Bay. Even their duck ups turn to gold. Fuck them. And god damnit bears play to the whistle!

  • RyanBear

    Sick of Canadian football in Chicago

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    If Marinelli was still our D coach, 10 dudes would have jumped on that ball

    • tobijohn

      Said the same thing

  • underway

    Fudge are giving us this game and we won’t take it. 3 to’s and we are losing…

    • SC Dave

      Cutler = loser

  • Maddbearfan

    We’re fuckeed…we are fucked…we are fucked…we are fucked..the refs gonna give this game to GreenBay….Miight just as well go home now…

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      Stop it. Stop it right now. We are NOT fucked.

  • RenoBear

    Fuck ups not duck ups

  • DaMurph

    Bad decision Hester

    • SC Dave

      True, but assholes need to throw a block now and then

  • Still a Doug Plank Fan

    WE.
    WILL.
    WIN.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    how about hurrying the fuck up?

  • Maddbearfan

    Hey Trestman..just run it up the middle..it doesn’t work but what the fuck..run it all day cuz it doesn’t matter the refs gonna give it to Greenbay anyway so just run it up the middle!!!!

    • SC Dave

      Better than cutler fucking something up

  • underway

    R we just tryin to get into the lockeroom for half? How bout we throw the damn football trestman. Why are we going conservative….

    • SC Dave

      Hope you got what you wanted

      • underway

        Not quite

  • Viva

    This game is just getting started.

  • underway

    Fuck it.

  • SC Dave

    Ill save cheesy the trouble. The bears still suck

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Jesus. Our offense is killing us.

    • SC Dave

      Take cutler out

  • RyanBear

    Put a dagger in this clown Canadian season

    • SC Dave

      Ah, i see. You *are* an idiot

  • DaMurph

    Dammit this is THE game!!!

  • DaMurph

    SMH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • RyanBear

    Slow death fellow Bear fans. Don’t forget packers get the ball after the half

  • underway

    Somebody cover nelson.

  • johnnywad

    If the Bears D played any of the last five games this well, the Bears would be resting this week

    • SC Dave

      True, but Cutler does nothing with it

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Watch out for TE or back shoulder throw

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Our D is playing inspired. Our O is shitting the bed.

    • SC Dave

      On the fucking money. Play mccown

  • tobijohn

    This game is on the O not the D

  • John B.

    I hope everyone on the Bears defense can find another occupation. Playing football just hasn’t worked out for them.

    • SC Dave

      Are you stupid? The offense has completely shit the bed. This is 100% on the offense so far. The Jay Cutler led offense. Play McCown… whether its cutlers fault or not, he is a giant loser v rodgers. CHANGE SOMETHING and we might win. Or exhibit insanity

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      Ridiculous. Take your fingers outta yer eyes. The D is playing stand-up football.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    I wonder if we go for the onside in the 2nd half?

    • johnnywad

      No way. The Bears are brutal at the onside kick

    • John B.

      I wonder if the Bears aren’t so embarrassed they refuse to come out for the second half.

    • BearFanInDE

      No way. Better to let the D try and hold them and get the ball back!

      • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

        Never thought I’d say that this season, but might be safer route.

  • tobijohn

    It’s only 6 but it feels like the Packers are up by 20…

    • RyanBear

      They are

    • BearFanInDE

      They should be. The D is playing lights out today

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      Disagree. It feels close. Well within reach. We’re gonna do this thing, Tobi.

      • tobijohn

        I hope so or I’ll be crying like that Packer chick whose YouTube video went viral a couple years ago. Especially if the difference is that fumble/TD…

  • Maddbearfan

    This game is on Jay Cutler and Trestmam. No creativity in the play calling and Cutler is NOT a winner. I’ll be back when they get a good QB..fuck Cutler he had enuf chances.

    • boogers

      Agreed. The personal foul on McClellin, Alshon’s fumble, Podlesh, that’s all on Cutler.

      • SC Dave

        You dont see, grasshopper

  • RyanBear

    One good offensive drive, followed by bad play calling, no ball handling , and Bad throws by cutler

  • johnnywad

    A 30yd punt to put the Packers on the 40 after a bullshit call, a sack fumble that nobody picks up, is dead for 5 seconds before becoming a bullshit touchdown and an Alshon Jeffrey fumble that turns into another field goal and Cutler is the problem?

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      +1 for well-placed sarcasm.

    • BearFanInDE

      If we don’t win, there will be a lot of time to figure out who is responsible and by how much….But let’s go win this one today!

  • Still a Doug Plank Fan

    We’ve played 2 out of 4 quarters. Except for one mental error (which even the Pack was making), our D has shown up and stood up,

    This game is NOT done.

    WE.
    WILL.
    WIN.

    • RenoBear

      WE.
      WILL.
      WIN.

    • RenoBear

      I prefer the optimistic outlook too

    • BearFanInDE

      The O needs to take over 2nd half…

      • SC Dave

        yeah, right

  • bearsfantillend

    Mills not coming back into game

    • SC Dave

      Bummer

  • SC Dave

    Ok jay, are you EVER going to be someone? Now is the time. Now is the time.

  • johnnywad

    The drive prior to half time was shaping up nicely and already at midfield when Alshon fumbled. Nice mix of run and pass. I don’t think this game is over by a long shot.

  • underway

    Time to open the playbook… leave all the plays on the field. I need to see the offensive mind that is trestman. This is the most important half of football for him and his qb… Bear the fuck down

  • tobijohn

    A GB punt!

  • tobijohn

    Please no hold

  • bearsfantillend

    HESTER!!!

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Ran it down their throats.

  • RenoBear
  • johnnywad

    Jay sucks. He didn’t even throw a touchdown there. Stupid play calls. All runs.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Bushrod has been worth every penny esp after the Clusterfuck at LT for ages.

    Bushrod’s excellent at pulling.

  • tobijohn

    If the Bears can overcome that first half and pull out in the 2nd half, that’s guts

  • underway

    Just when I’m done with hester….

  • RenoBear

    Hell yeah there we go guys! Let’s do this

  • DSupreme

    Double deuces ghat dammit!!! Bear the fuck down!!!!!

  • bearsfantillend

    i have a feeling this 2nd half is going to be weirder than the 1st.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Now that Britton is in, we no longer have our ‘jumbo’ package, so Tresty running it with two TEs is interesting.

  • RyanBear

    Keep running it!!!!

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Pack usu don’t punt away from Hester. I wonder what they do now…

  • tobijohn

    Have to score on every drive. Can’t allow Podlesh to get his hands on the ball..

    • bearsfantillend

      accept when he is holding for extra points

      • tobijohn

        I before e except after c…

        • bearsfantillend

          my bad – not an english major

          • tobijohn

            No, I meant Podlesh holding is the exception to the rule…

          • bearsfantillend

            lol – i figured you meant me using accept instead of except

  • SC Dave

    Devin, Matt… thanks for hope

  • johnnywad

    Bears are better than the Pack tonight. Hope that bullshit TD doesn’t decide the game.

  • Maddbearfan

    Maybe if I start rooting for the Packers to win the Bears will beat them…Yeah reverse phsycosis or something like that!!!

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Steltz?

    • bearsfantillend

      Wright was shaken up on tackle of Lacy

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    That Starks run was on Anderson.

  • underway

    Bit by the Conte…

  • johnnywad

    Commence shootout

  • bearsfantillend

    i think thats a TD

  • johnnywad

    Fucking Jay. Making a throw McCown simply can’t make. What a jerk.

    • bearsfantillend

      I cant believe Jay would do something like that, the arrogant prick.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Alshon made sure to put two arms around the ball that time.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Unconventional, but savvy TO to make sure they’d have a challenge. Alshon’s shoulder might have been down before crossing the line.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    We need a fucking stop here. This is where you gotta dig deep as a football player and as a man.

  • johnnywad

    Whatever the stars are at the end of the night, Jay gets an additional touchdown.

  • Maddbearfan

    How was that not a touchdown…no part of him was down till after he crossed the goal line. Even the announcers are wondering what is going on?

  • Maddbearfan

    Ok, Cutler did good….

  • DaMurph

    this is just crazy

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    The Refs better uphold the call. They fucking owe us.

  • DaMurph

    There isnt enough to overturn it, It looks like the tip of the ball hit the turf which made it bounce so high

    • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

      Yup. But then again, we don’t suck cheese dick.

  • RenoBear

    They won’t. They’re doing everything they can to give this back to GB

  • DaMurph

    No ball is gonna bounce that high if it didnt hit the turf just from being between his forearms

  • DaMurph

    Got one right!

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Now we need the stop. 3rd and long has been the bain of our D all yr.

  • tobijohn

    Huge stop

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Anderson finally shows up

  • DaMurph

    actually covered Nelson

  • MichiganBearFan

    Hey we got one!

  • RenoBear

    Look at bitch Rodgers lookin for a call every ducking play

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Wilson has been out there for some odd reason.

    • tobijohn

      Earl still gone?

      • bearsfantillend

        Earl did not play today

      • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

        ahh. that would explain it. hell of a way to get playing time though. In-win against bitter rival

  • MichiganBearFan

    This is a huge game for Forte.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    See Cutler. Dump offs can work!

  • johnnywad

    Fucking Jay. Checking down like that. He sucks

    • tobijohn

      I know, what a pussy…

    • DaMurph

      hahahaha!!

  • RenoBear

    C’mon guys, shove it right down their throat, just like Aaron likes it.. http://socialnewsdaily.com/21941/aaron-rodgers-gay-ex-boyfriend-reportedly-planning-to-out-packers-qb/

  • underway

    Jay finally with the dump down… didn’t force it…Yes!!!!!!

  • DaMurph

    good thing I didnt eat earlier, I swaer I could puke, my stomach is churning like a muthafrigger!

    • tobijohn

      Tagamet!

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    We NEED a TD. We suck from 5 yards in.

    • johnnywad

      Not tonight Butch. This ones going in

  • MichiganBearFan

    Announcers feeling sorry for the Pack’s linebackers woes this season. Way to choke down another load…

  • DaMurph

    We HAVE to have a touchdown here, we can not squander this opportunity

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    WHAT A THROW. WHAT A CATCH!

  • bearsfantillend

    WHAT A FUCKING THROW!!!!!

  • DaMurph

    THAT IS what we pay him for!

  • johnnywad

    You guys see Jay check out of coaches perfect play and throw that shit ball in the end zone? God he sucks

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    What a catch. Man, anyone who has played WR knows how hard that shit is to do WITH A HELMET.

    That’s hard to do for a center-fielder without a helmet or someone hanging all over him.

  • Shady

    What a pitch and catch.

    • SC Dave

      Shit, one fucking throw in six games an everyone is excited?

  • RenoBear

    God damnit Cutler quit throwing to Marshall…. Geez

  • Still a Doug Plank Fan

    Thank God for Chris Conte on that play.

  • tobijohn

    Rats, back to lousy tackling

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Conte saved a TD, got an INT, and is cleaning up the back.
    WTH?

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      He’s having a great game.

    • DaMurph

      its because MB isnt here berating him! hahaha

    • SC Dave

      Read later, all the Cutler cocksuckers want to pin this loss on Conte.

  • DaMurph

    Are you kidding me?

  • DaMurph

    unreal

  • RenoBear

    Fat boy Lacy is a punk bitch

    • DaMurph

      He sho can run though!

      • RenoBear

        Unfortunately he can… Damn it

      • RenoBear

        Yes, yes he can…I do tend to let words get away from me a bit when I’m pissed

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Who ever turns it over loses.

  • tobijohn

    I was hoping for a stop and then another score so I could finally lean back in my chair and exhale. No such luck…

    • johnnywad

      That would be boring. This is much better

      • tobijohn

        I prefer boring

        • DaMurph

          me too tobi

  • Shady

    Peppers, Briggs and Wright all missed Jordy Nelson when Jennings was holding him upright. How does that happen?

  • bearsfantillend

    damn i love that toss play.

  • johnnywad

    The Alshon End Around is going to be wide open soon

  • bearsfantillend

    WOW!! Wilson can take a hit!

  • DaMurph

    MARQUIS!

  • underway

    Cutlers arm is fuckin unreal… lazerbeams…

    • DaMurph

      never been a question with that

    • SC Dave

      Too bad he cannot win a big game..ever

      • SC Dave

        Okay bitch that thumbed it down.. still glad you did?

  • DaMurph

    Nice try at a block Jay

    • SC Dave

      A franchise QB makes that block

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Man, converting this 3rd could milk more clock and hopefully put us up

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      Yeah, this is an enormous 3rd down right now.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    4 down territory?

    If so, we get about 12 yards on 3rd, and go for it on 4rth and 4-5.

    If not, expect a dump off, draw.

    Knowing Jay though lol

  • DaMurph

    OH MAN so close

    • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

      Alshon needed one of those highlight reel ones there. That would’ve killed the Pack I think.

  • DaMurph

    pick 6 pick 6 pick 6 pick 6

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    I keep getting the feeling that Cutler’s going to have to lead them on a last minute game winning drive.

    • underway

      That would be fitting…

      • SC Dave

        Yeah, right

  • DaMurph

    man thats close………..fuck you Aikman

  • DaMurph

    man that was delay

  • DaMurph

    friggin delay

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    This is it boys.

    3rd and 4. Gotta get a stop here.

    • DaMurph

      they will go on fourth

  • DaMurph

    are you fucking kidding me?

  • Maddbearfan

    Tense…very Tense!!

  • underway

    This 4th down is for it all… BEAR DOWN…

    Hella holding…..

    I’m am going to fuckin pass out….

  • bearsfantillend

    FUCK MAN!!!

  • DaMurph

    fuck me

  • RenoBear

    Lol fuck me running

  • underway

    How the fuck does that happen

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    4rth and 8. unreal. I like that they brought the blitz, but how the hell do you tell Conte to sit on the first down no matter what? That’s on Tucker.

    • underway

      He has got to be a smarter player to know if a guy runs up the field he has got to cover him. Fuck what coach says.

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      Yep. He was told to sit were the first words out of my mouth when it happened.

      I know Conte is no PB Safety, and has had his well-earned criticisms this season. I just wanted him to have a good game tonight, and overall? I thought he did.

      • SC Dave

        NO doubt MB and other bitches will put this on Conte and the D instead of where it clearly belongs – the offense. Why cant WE ever get a real QB like Rodgers?

        • MB30SD

          Sorry dave, you’re off base right now.

          It IS on conte and the D… squarely.

          Uhhhh, because rodgers, if he stays healthy and on par for a few more years, is probably going to be consider the best all-around QB the NFL has ever seen. That shit don’t grow on trees. Gotta give it up to ted thompson and McCarthy.

          Ashlon and/or bmarsh make those last two catches that were both right in their hands, and who would you be praising?

          • SC Dave

            I wont reply now… the FACTS are not on profootball reference as yet. But as I recall, the offense had the ball at least six times in the first half and put up seven points. Unacceptable and you fucking know it.

        • MikeBrownhadaPosse

          “And other bitches?” You’re on a fucking roll, Dave.

  • underway

    I need to see that play again. That should be the nail in the conte coffin…..

  • DaMurph

    how do you lose Rodgers on that

  • BearFanInDE

    It’s been a good season! On to 2014!

    • beninnorcal

      Who’s this douche-bag?

  • tobijohn

    I’m actually nauseous

    • DaMurph

      Ive been almost the whole game

  • DaMurph

    i am gonna puke

  • underway

    Conte is gone…period. receiver ran right by him

    • DaMurph

      waasnt his cover

      • IBNO

        FS is deepest on the field, period.

        • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

          Not if Tucker designed the play for Conte to cover that zone. That’s something that we’re going to find out post game.

          • MB30SD

            it was man… he needed to cover his man. I don’t care how bad you are at DC, you dont tell a guy not to give up the 1st, but hey, the game-winning td is cool.

    • SC Dave

      I fucking *KNEW* you douchebags would put it on Conte. Sorry, this one’s on Cutler.

      • MB30SD

        DAVE! put down the computer… and the crack dude.

        WTH is going on over there. someone call the po-leez and get dave some help!

        • SC Dave

          As I said above, I’ll put it out there when the facts are on line. You CANNOT possibly think that seven fucking points by the offense in the first half despite all the stops by the defense was something you expected? That the only Packers TD on some stupid ass fumble play? That despite all the times the mighty Jay Cutler led offense had the ball, SEVEN POINTS is all they could muster? Truly, you’re not serious?

          The Bears defense had not played as good a game for at least half a season.

          In the end, the difference is that the Green Bay Packers have a winner at QB, and the Chicago Bears have a loser.

          • MB30SD

            dude, he put us in a place to win that game. Ashlon and marshall HAVE to catch those throws that were in their hands. Not on jay maings. not at all. Conte covers his man on FOURTH AND EIGHT, makes a play in the ball and knocks it out of cobb’s hands and you are talking smack to ME about conte…. wait….

  • bearsfantillend

    Cutler to Jeffery, miracle catch for TD

  • DaMurph

    You drop that Brandon?

  • DaMurph

    FUCK THIS

  • IBNO

    Chris Conte should be cut. Now.

    Don’t even let him clean out his locker.

    • SC Dave

      Not until after they cut Cutler

      • MB30SD

        please stop dave… this is the innerness. When you apply for a new job, they’re going to look up this thread…… and not hire you.

        • SC Dave

          Culter v Packers 1-9
          Rodgers v Bears 9-2

          What else is there to say?

          • IBNO

            Yes, and Rodgers plays Cutler head-to-head, obviously.

            Anyway, It’s a “no shit, Sherlock” moment to say that Rodgers is better than Cutler. Duh. Rodgers is easily better than almost anyone in the league in the past 5 years (and arguably better than everyone). Is this loss on Cutler? No. Yeah, yeah, keep saying “Seven points in the first half is inexcusable,” and then look how many points Rodgers put up in the first half.

            The defense couldn’t stop Green Bay on any one of THREE 4th downs in the 4th quarter. THAT is why the Bears lost.

  • tobijohn

    And just like that. It’s over…

    • johnnywad

      Sticking around for the off season Tobi?

          • beninnorcal

            On the contrary, you’re faded.

          • SC Dave

            Cool. I will register that facts dont interest you

          • beninnorcal

            Fact is, Dave, that football is a team sport. I don’t care about Cutler’s record vs the Pack, that had nothing to do with today. It was the 11 on defense who not only gave up the late lead, but also gave up one of the dumbest TD’s I’ve ever witnessed. 4th and 8, Dave.

          • SC Dave

            Facts are the Bears have lost nine of ten with Cutler. And EVERY SINGLE TIME the Cutler apologists are out.

    • SC Dave

      I knoew it. Fire Conte before that piece of shit QB. Sooooo predictable

      • MB30SD

        dave, you’ve gone crazy. totally batshit crazy tonight.

        • SC Dave

          Cutler 1-9 vs Packers. Who is batshit crazy?

            smh

  • BearFanInDE

    10-6 to 8-8..

  • Shady

  • BearFanInDE

    Thanks Trestman, Emery

    • SC Dave

      Fuck off… this is on angelo, lovie, and most of all cutler

      • MB30SD

        Dave… huh??? This ia on your boy conte.

        • johnnywad

          Not enough for Dave. 148.3 rating prior to a desperate attempt in the end zone and minus the AJ touchdown that didn’t count. But the safeties? Hell, let’s sign them to extensions.

          • SC Dave

            Cutler games….Bears 1, packers 9.
            Eliminations Packers 2, Bears 0
            U
            How much more do you need to see?
            Seriously?

            How many MORE TIMES yo see Cutler lose to Rodgers before you FINALLY stop ignoring the elephant in the room?

            Seriously?

            Are you willing to watch the best running back since Walter Payton and the best receiver ever (Alshon) continue to achieve frustration with a LOSER as your QB?!?

      • beninnorcal

        Ok, Dave.

        • SC Dave

          Blame it on whatever you want, The bottom line is that whenever Jay Cutler is in the big game, WE LOSE.

          • beninnorcal

            4th and 8

          • SC Dave

            Non sequitur. Cutler and Bears big game = we lose.

          • beninnorcal

            Ok Dave, let’s go re-sign Rex than, shall we? Or should we politely ask Dallas to let us have Orton back? I’ve read and posted on this here blog for quite a few years now, I’ve generally agreed with most of your ideas in the past, but I think you’ve lost your shit, dude.

  • SC Dave

    Jay Cutler = Loser
    End of story, I hope. Wait…. Trac… I *pray* we’ re done with that loser

    • MB30SD

      No chris fucking conte is a fucking loser dave. Lost that game for us.

      • SC Dave

        Bullshit. Fuck you. Conte, even if that last TD was on him (which of course, you have NO FUCKING IDEA) stopped the first packers TD, and at least once stopped Lacy from a long TD run. Watch the film.

        • MB30SD

          I played the position in college Dave. I can assure you I have a much better idea than you have. Promise.

          And no need for personal attacks man… it’s all in fun.

        • IBNO

          One reason MB and I are so hard on Conte is we both played the position in college. It’s not rocket science.

          Wait… It isn’t an easy position, to be honest, but the shit that Conte is fucking up is Pop Warner level shit. That’s why it’s so goddamn frustrating.

          So let’s sum up your Cutler hate and Conte defense:
          Offense #2 in the league in scoring.
          Defense tied for second worst in the league in scoring–and a FG away from owning worst in league.
          How many records for shittiness did this defense break this year? Multiple 100-yard games allowed, most points given up by a Bears team, etc.

          Yeah, that’s not Cutler’s fault.

    • johnnywad

      That’s pretty stupid Dave. Even for you. He played a good game.

      • SC Dave

        You guys really just dont get it. Jay Cutlre has played far better, on the average, than Jim NcMahon. But McMahon WON GAMES. And Jay Cutler does not.

        • bearsfantillend

          McMahon, also had one of the best defenses every year he played, the greatest running back ever, a couple pretty good WR, a decent Offensive line, and OCs that weren’t mentally handicapped

        • beninnorcal

          Guess what, Dave? You and I are both stuck with him for another year or more, so what difference does it make?

    • Bounce

      How was that on cutler? Marshall dropped that pass

      • underway

        This game falls on anybody but cutler. The defense gave up 14 bullshit points. Not playing to the whistle and conte being on the field.

    • Trac

      Hey now just a minute. Take me out of this equation. The Bears have a non existent D. End of story, everything else is a side note.

      • SC Dave

        It was only about the *praying* part Trac. My apologies.

    • beninnorcal

      I call bullshit, Dave. Alshon corrals that last deep ball on 2nd to last drive, we win, Cutler is the hero. That’s not too mention 4th and 8.

      • SC Dave

        I see… Cutler throws a jump ball over the wrong shoulder and Alshon does not bail his ass out (yet again) and it is on the receiver?

        • beninnorcal

          4th and 8, I will say no more. Except that you’re drunk and your argument is weak and irrational.

        • beninnorcal

          And you mean that ball that hit Alshon on both hands without the db touching it?

          • SC Dave

            Cutler 1 win, 9 losses vs packers. Nothing more to say.

      • SC Dave

        Call whatever you like. Cutler vs. Green Bay… 1 win, 9 losses.
        Nothing more to say, other that it is INSANE (you know,doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?) to go with Cutler.

    • Viva

      I think you are wrong about this, Dave.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Ignorance is not an opinion.

    • SC Dave

      LOL You guys really, truly, dont get it, do you? Cutler is ONE and FUCKING NINE against the Packers. Does he have to go TWO and FUCKING EIGHTEEN before you stop defending his losing ass???!?!!!!??

      Cheesy must be SOOO laughing at you guys. Remember when Cheesy came on here and pled for us to play Cutler over McCown? He was so right.

      And it has nothing to do with whether or not Jay plays well. It has everything to do with the fact that we LOSE 90% OF THE TIME when Cutler plays v Green Bay.

  • BearFanInDE

    Lovie and Urlacher say ” hahahhahahabahaha”

    • Trac

      Dude, you sound like a punk. Back off.

    • johnnywad

      That team would have been 4-12 with Lovie given the Defensive injuries.

  • Bounce

    Conte needs to go. Let Cobb go by.

  • Trac

    8-8. Another year til we get to find out. The Bears didn’t have enough. The Bears will be picking somewhere between 14th-17th in the draft. What a bummer.

  • BearFanInDE

    At least I won’t be spammed with Spam about Bears NFC North Champs merchandise

  • Irish Sweetness

    This is like being kicked in the balls every five seconds for eternity

    • Trac

      It just wasn’t meant to be. I mean, they crawled to 8-7. T’was worth a try but none of us really thought the Bears would make noise in the playoffs did we?

  • Irish Sweetness

    Not Cutty’s fault today. Good game.

  • gpldan

    It’s unbelievable.

    Why does Tucker bring 6 on 4th and 8?

    Why would Conte being playing a short zone if they brought 6?

    Does Tucker mount the Chewbacca defense?

    This is awful. Groundhog saw it’s shadow, and it’s 5 more years of being closer to Cubs fan.

    • Trac

      Emery better wipe off the packer shit from his eyebrows and get us a defense.

  • BerwynBomber

    Rodgers played like shit but the MFer made one badass MVP play at the end and it killed us. Btw, not the biggest Jay fan but thought he played fine — definitely his best game ever against GB. Hell, I even thought our D-line and secondary played well, especially the latter. And Forte had a pro-bowl type game. A bitter, bitter loss.

    • SC Dave

      That’s what WINNERS do

  • CanadaBear

    What a pisser of a game to lose. Conte giveth too much and taketh away too little. Couple of bad calls, the punt at the 2 or three vs the 20 and the CD personal foul was hooey. A crazy play where almost everyone fell asleep. If nothing else you can’t blame Cutler for this one. He played well.

  • MichiganBearFan

    Keep Cutler, fire Tucker, hire Frazier, draft D line. Sounds easy to me.

    • MB30SD

      you forgot two new safeties.

  • underway

    4th and 8 will forever be burned in my brain. All we needed was one play. And we look like ass and give up a td. Lot of readjusting this off season…

  • BerwynBomber

    Btw, for all those calling for Conte’s head on the killer play. Even if he doesn’t sit on the first-down line, he probably would have been toasted. Randall Cobb one-on-one vs. an FS from the line of scrimmage on a busted play? Sorry, just thought that was more about Rodgers (and Kuhn) making a play than anything else, though I’m certainly no fan of Conte.

    • Bounce

      How do you let Cobb run by when jones is covered by bowman?

      • BerwynBomber

        I don’t disagree it was busted coverage. My only point was that I don’t think Conte could have stayed with Cobb for the entirety of that play even if his coverage had been correct.

        • MB30SD

          doesn’t matter… wouldn’t have been conte fucking his own team, fans, org. At least it wouldn’t have been the nth fucking mistake to cost us a game this year.

  • gpldan

    This city is in shock right now. This city deserves better than this.

    Tonight it drops to zero and tomorrow we get a foot of snow as if the heavens are going to kick our ribs in now that we are down.

    Man, this one – this one will resonate for years.

  • Trac

    But hey, I won my FF league. Whoopdy friggin doo.

  • Shady

    I feel bad for Marshall.

  • gpldan

    Bears time of possession – 24m
    Pack – 35m

    Gotta keep it away from them to win.

  • Trac

    Oh and by the way, since when did our D stop diving for loose balls? This has happened several times this year. Totally unacceptable.

  • gpldan

    Is there a bigger indictment of a DC than the dead play fumble?

    I get that it LOOKED like a forward pass, but a coached team plays to the whistle. Sad. Awful shit. Butkus must have freaked.

    • Trac

      Yes. Absolutely unacceptable.

    • Viva

      I was screaming at my television when the ball hit the floor and for a split second it looked like Anderson was going to recover it…..

      and then he shit the bed.

    • beninnorcal

      That was the game right there, lucky bullshit for GB. Also the refs were awful in the first half on the Podlesh punt to the 1 as well as the roughing on CD.

    • SC Dave

      Ture, but you *know* had the Bears run it the other way for a TD, the call would have been “incomplete”

  • Still a Doug Plank Fan

    I’m not a Conte apologist – I’m all for replacing him. But I thought overall he had a damned fine game (for him). That first pick of Rodgers in the end zone kept it a game. I don’t think he let the receiver run by because he’s an idiot, I think he had been told to sit right there.

    Cutler, overall, had a decent game.

    So many things we can dissect about this game – so many plays. End of the day, we lost. To Green Bay. In Chicago.

    But ya know, this was the first game in memory that even with only 38 seconds left, and down by 5, I actually still believed we would win. I never gave up until I saw Cutler step across the line of scrimmage and launch that ball. That’s when I knew we were done.

    This was Trestman’s 1st year, and thanks to injuries and age, he had no defense to work with. It would be stupid to call for his head, etc. Without a D, his entire game plan every week was to score 40+. No coach can sustain that over the course of a season.

    Let’s all take a breath, and see what Emery & Co. can do in the offseason. Personally, I think the QB position is the most complicated issue to solve, and the defense the one in need of complete overhaul (understatements are okay – I’m still in shock)…

    We played it until the last second tonight. Call it what we will, it was the most exciting football game I’ve watched in years.

    • tobijohn

      I think pretty much the entire offense could and should be brought back next season including Jay and Josh. I think you could count on one hand the number of defensive players that should be allowed to return. And it will take more than one year to fix it. But if they could just make it to the twentieth worse defense next year, this could be an extremely competitive team….

    • SC Dave

      I was disappointed how the offense threw away so much potential momentum in the first half. THis game was on the offense. Packers fans must have thought it a miracle that we only had seven at half.

  • Viva

    Matt Forte was awesome today. The stiff arm to whomever was motivating. Skunk had a great game as well.

    I love that Turner sent the kitchen sink on 4th and 8. Breakdown in the secondary is unfathomable, undisciplined….

    • Trac

      What happened to bend don’t break?

      • Viva

        The goal is to make Rodgers make a quick pass, or knock him on his ass. We can’t get there with 4, and giving Rodgers more time in the pocket is playing into his strength.

        • BerwynBomber

          I liked the call too, and as DP fan said below I can’t put it much on Conte. Rodgers made a play at the end. Sucks fucking ass but happens when facing dudes like him.

          • SC Dave

            And why is it never OUR guy?

    • BerwynBomber

      Yep, thought Forte was our O MVP today — though certainly Jay’s best game against GB. Oh, and Marshall’s fade catch was season highlight worthy.

    • MB30SD

      unfathomable Viva? seriously. We all should have fucking expected it. god damn it, I am so fucking pissed off. ridiculous. We had that game sew up for fuck sake.

      Shady, hope you’re glad vadgers came back. fuck.

      • Viva

        You are right. Should have expected a breakdown. Still think we needed to force AR into a quick decision…

        • MB30SD

          whether conte would have gotten smoked anyway is immaterial… the fact that his play sealed our fate this year is so fucking apros pro and painful. I guarantee you steltz would have been running with cobb into the endzone… he might have been 5 yards behind him due to lesser DNA, but he wouldn’t have pulled a total conte, like conte did.

          • SC Dave

            The apropos was that Cutler could not get us more than seven points in the first half.

  • Doc Nitty

    This hurts, boys. This really hurts. I feel childish to admit it. It’s a silly game between a bunch of people I’ve never met. It mean nothing in the grand scheme of life. It means very little in the NFL world either, since I believe neither team had much of a shot at any real playoff success. And yet it somehow means everything.

    So many weird things in this game; The strip sack by Pep that somehow turned into a walk in touchdown for the Packers. The Nelson catch that went through Contes hands, somehow, which kept the Packers second to last drive alive. The Multiple third and fourth down conversions on the Packers last drive. The pass they Jeffery couldn’t catch down the left sideline late, though it hit him in his hands.

    • Trac

      I’ve been spared soooo much grief with no tv this year. Listening to the game seems to dull the pain somewhat.

      • SC Dave

        Wish I had not watched

    • johnnywad

      I feel you. That game was there to be won. Don’t forget Podlesh. He has a knack for brutal punts in big situations.

  • BerwynBomber

    Trestman very classy in his presser. Btw, the Cheese are probably out next week anyway against SF. Not that it’s much consolation right now.

    • johnnywad

      It’s not. I’d rather be out next week than this one. Trestman is always classy as far as I’ve seen. I think he’s going to take enough away from this year, that next year will be markedly better.

    • MB30SD

      probably? they’re going to get fucking used.

    • SC Dave

      I hope they win the fucking Super Bowl. Just to remind us what winners look like.

      Savor the flavor, your season ends next week anyhow, will you come back to chat with us after that game?

  • underway

    I fucks with B. Marshall. He has grown TREMENDOUSLY as a person. No more attitude and off the field shenanigans. Very good postgame press conference. He/Alshon/Forte and Jay will be a force to recon with. More time together and under Trest can only lead to good things… “Jay will be back” -B. Marshall.

    • underway

      oh and the red velvet tux jacket was fly too….

  • Bworm

    We have traded defense for offense but still are at home for the playoffs! Maybe Rod will get fired with the rest of the Dallas staff and would reconsider the DC position with us.

    • Trac

      When you look at the Dallas defense, it’s obvious Lovie was the reason our boys stayed amped. Besides, our D was suspect the two years Nelli was our DC. Looking back, I think the biggest mistake in the off season was not finding a way to keep Urlacher on the club, I think he would have helped out tremendously with all the injuries.

      • MB30SD

        Trac, I know you’re a believer so I’m a little puzzled as to how you got, and then smoked that much crack.

        wth dude?!?!?! I hope you’re joking.

        Know what would have helped us win today and get into the post season? How about a real football player at free fucking safety. How about we start fucking there.

        MOTHER FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!!! I fucking HATE losing to those assholes. god fucking damn it!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • tobijohn

          Let them have their five or six days of elation and hope. Only to have it snuffed out by the 49ers….again

          • MB30SD

            I don’t give a fuck about the packers. they can win the fucking sb for all I care.

            We handed them the fucking game again… at home again. So sick of that shit.

            Next year emery better rebuild the D and we better stuff it down their fucking throats twice. I hope we get a chance to knock them out next year. cunts.

          • tobijohn

            We will…

        • SC Dave

          Then hope for a new qb

        • Trac

          There is no doubt in my mind that our defensive squad under Lovie played their hearts out for him. When he got canned, they lost that emotional edge that gave them the push to suck it up and dig deeper. When Urlacher was released, the batman and robin dual thing with Briggs vanished. How else can you explain the fact the Briggs came back fat and out of shape. This defenses only gasp of inspiration was fired last year so it’s no surprise that it withered on the vine this year. Injuries aside, they lost their way. We lost this season before it started on defense.

          Having said that, Emery had better fix this defense or we are doomed. You cannot win the North and be a contender every year with a sorry ass defense which is what we have now.

          • Doc Nitty

            That’s absurd, Trac. Briggs was having a dominant year before his injury.

  • CanadaBear

    Please don’t feed the trolls.

    • Rodgers Dead

      what about when the trolls are homegrown?

  • CanadaBear

    This is one of those, woulda, coulda, shoulda games that can eat you up. Or just come to grips with the fact that all this bad shit always happens to bad teams. I’m already over it for the most part. There’s no way we even belonged in the playoffs this year, all things considered. The off season is going to be crazy.

    • MB30SD

      agree with the second part, and part of the first.

      God damn it I’m angry. as fucking usual we beat ourselfs with our defense this year. Tucker is dogshit. zero improvement. 3 4th downs, 3 misses and a gw td. jesus.

      • CanadaBear

        I get it but let’s be honest injuries, father time, little depth, new coaching staff, etc. adds up to C-Ya.

        • MB30SD

          agree canada. we probably would have been worked over by a much more complete SF team next week, but damn it.

          If the game was a blow out it would have hurt much less, but we should have and could have won today. One more great catch by ashlon and we’re all handing out virtual bjs to each other tonight. fucken a man.

          • CanadaBear

            That’s the pisser part. But can you imagine what SF would do to our D? My biggest issue is the rivalry thang. It makes it even worse. Oh well.

          • MB30SD

            the only thing worse would have been if it was the lions today. I hate them a lot, but it’s because I don’t respect any of those shitbirds. I hate rodgers but you have to respect him… no matter how big of a fucking douche he is, and how much of a tool he sounds like on his radio show.

            Hurts to lose to that fucking guy damn it.

          • SC Dave

            Thats what a real QB looks like… look and cry until we finally get one. IF we ever do

    • tobijohn

      You’re right, of course. That “anything can happen in the playoffs” is overrated. It would have been nice to sweep the Pack, but that’s what next year is for. We’re only an hour into it but I’m actually getting a bit excited about the off season possibilities..

  • MB30SD

    guys, let me make something clear about conte losing the game for us.

    It was man right? Bowman has jones, someone else had the guy on the inside. he has cobb and is told to hold the first down line… unless YOUR FUCKING MAN blows past you streaking towards the endzone when you KNOW he’s your man and there’s no one behind you to pick that up.

    Who job was it? Who’s responsibility then?

    Dude, that play was ALL on conte, I don’t give a shit if you were told to hold the frist down line… in order to give up a game-winning TD?!? Really?

    Fuck me, he needs to be gone right now. like this second.

    • CanadaBear

      Tough way to lose. Not surprising but still a pisser.

    • Bounce

      Preach man. Preach. It wasn’t like he got beat…he just let Cobb run towards the end zone.

      • MB30SD

        I have been… since last season dude.

    • SC Dave

      Okay, so I’ll ignore the TD saving int and the tackle (or two) that prevented touchdown runs. All so you can chant the mantra and ignore that we have a QB than cannot win important games.

      Of course, I DO realize that the last bit is an inconvenient (for you) fact.. sorry.

      • MB30SD

        none of that shit matters. doesn’t count for dick my man. He let his man walk into the endzone for the winning td. period.

        If ashlon or marshall catch the balls that hit them in the hands we win, period. how’s that for fact.

        • SC Dave

          1-9. The only fact that actually counts.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            QB – the only position that actually counts (according to you).

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Yep, I’m done. Conte’s a joke.

  • MB30SD

    people saying this was on jay are crazy… or drunk (dave… I know which for you. Ha!).

    The drops IN THE HANDS by ashlon and marsh doomed us. Ashlon makes that catch and we’re winners right now. Hit him RIGHT in the hands.

    • tobijohn

      Despite the drops, the O did enough to win. As far as I’m concerned, the onus is on the D

      • MB30SD

        pretty easy story TJ.

        If we have even a decent middle of the road D that at the very simple least doesn’t blow huge plays… we win the north a long time ago.

        Injuries and tucker being total and utter dogshit of a DC doomed us. Who knew, he came from that great jags D. SMMFH.

        Hey emery, stop doing business with dogshit orgs and we’ll stop getting dogshit talent in our house. Pretty fucking simple actually. You want good coaches and players… how about picking up the phone and talking to pete fucking carroll or jim harbaugh or even horse face elway.

  • Bounce

    I just wanted bears to win to shut these packers fans up

  • Rodgers Dead

    Dave, I hate saying this because I don’t know you outside of what you post on this blog but based on your analysis of this game you’re a fucking clown. I’m sorry man but you are.
    It was a game decided by flukes , not playing to the whistle and 3 drops equalling something like 90+ yards.
    Jordy Nelson alone with 161 yards , 85% of which came after first contact????? What the fuck man, how are you even talking about the offense right now?
    Fucking Clownish.

    • MB30SD

      I believe he’s had to drown his sorrows. I don’t think that’s the normal dave. I’m sure tomorrow he’ll be back to his normal self. Hopefully he’s come around to agree with my hatred of chris fucking conte, the game losing player.

      • Rodgers Dead

        it’s tough to read that shit. I don’t know what the fuck is wrong with that guy but it’s tiresome. I could understand if it was in the moment, because then you’re just being a douche, but to then carry it 4 and 5 hours past the game like the 145 rating shit didn’t happen. Maybe he accidentally watched a replay of a Packers game from 09 or something and just doesn’t realize it yet.

        • MB30SD

          yeah it’s getting ridiculous. Especially when he tells me to fuck off and that i have no idea what I’m talking about.

          Common dave.

    • SC Dave

      You guys just dont get it. I can say is over and over but you wont understand.

      You confuse correlation with causation. I’m not arguing that Cutler’s play today against Green Bay is the problem (although overall, any look at the stats will show he sucks hind tit in that regard),

      It’s about winning.

      Tonight was a perfect example. Aaron Rodgers, as usual, played worse that his average against the league in today’s game. But, despite being out for seven weeks, comes in and when the game is on the line, makes the play.

      The Bears, in their immediately preceding possession, could have gone up by another touchdown and put the game out of reach, but Cutler did not make it happen.

      And so Rodgers beats Cutler. Again.

      • Rodgers Dead

        Your logic is absolutely brutal and I don’t know why you are behaving this way. You’ve been ranting the whole day about Cutler being a loser yet you won’t acknowledge the reasons why the TEAM lost.
        I’m going to need you to acknowledge the fumble returned by GB, Alshon’s fumble that resulted in a FG, The blown coverage on 4th and 8 to lose the game, the inability to stop a team on two 4th downs and a 3rd down on the last drive, A ridiculous missed INT that went right through our safety’s hands on the drive that Green bay scored to make is 28-27, etc.
        if you want you can then also explain how Cutler somehow convinced Alshon to not catch a ball that bounced off both of his hands. The young man is so talented but he dropped the fucking ball on that preceeding drive. That drive that you said Cutler didn’t make it happen on.
        For you to keep harping on Cutler’s record when you know ALL of those games prior to this year had Bears teams composed of shit Lines, Shit WR’s, Shit Schemes, etc. It’s simply not logical to keep bringing up those previous teams in your brutal rationale. Before that fucking Hail Mary INT Cutler had like a fucking 140 rating and no turnovers. You don’t lose a game with a 140 rating unless there is a complete breakdown on the defense, which is what happened tonight.

  • SC Dave

    Fuck jay Cutler. Fuck Losers. Oh, but I repeat myself.

    • MB30SD

      ?????

      15/24 226 2 TDs (not counting the bs hail mary int)

      If ashlon catches that last pass that hit him IN THE HANDS on the 10 or 15, game is ours. Never mind Bmarsh’s drop in the chest on the 20.

      Dave, what you been smoking today maings? You’re not making any sense whatsoever dude. Not like you.

      • Ufficio

        Really, 3 TDs, but for the one we didn’t challenge because the Zebras had already fucked us on the previous challenge.

        Cutler could hardly have played any better.

      • SC Dave

        Cutler plays QB. Bears lose to Packers. Rinse. Repeat.

        Who is crazy?

  • BerwynBomber

    Sorry, can’t root for neckbeard here. The ‘boys suck donkey. I don’t want them in the playoffs. NO at Philly would be a decent first round match-up next week. NO at Dallas? Meh …

    • Still a Doug Plank Fan

      Yeah the matchup of choice would definitely be NO/Philly, but I hope Kyle does well. He deserves a shot.

  • MB30SD

    I always liked orton.

    I’m rooting for him. Fuck the eagles.

    • bearsfantillend

      Orton is having a pretty decent game, maybe the ‘boys should cut Romo and go with him next year

    • BerwynBomber

      I’m glad Kelly seems to be succeeding. I get damn tired of the “college coaches can’t make it the NFL” truism. Beyond Foles, the real surprise of Philly is that their D looks half-decent. Just a couple of years ago — after Jim Johnson died — they looked as bad as us. Or as bad as the Cheese.

  • BerwynBomber

    Don’t know why teams rush to the line like that when they are in the RZ with ~1:40 to go. Plenty of time. Drain a little clock if you can.

  • tobijohn

    I’m cool with paying Cutler, hopefully we can get a deal done so we don’t have to cap $16M next year. Get McCown for a couple more years too. Project QB can wait for 2015. Try to get an extension done for #15. Get Slauson signed for a few more years as well. If Peppers wants to stick around for no more a couple mil, that’s OK too. But just about every other available resource needs to be dedicated to the defense. Other than Jennings and Wooton, the version that finished this season needs to be almost entirely gutted…

    • MB30SD

      Fuck that shit TJ!

      Cut cutty without taking anything for him. He’s a POS, let’s give conte the money that was earmarked for jay!

      Oh wait, sorry dave. That’s your line. Ha! Common maingses!

    • BerwynBomber

      I would be inclined to bring back Williams and Anderson if the price is right; what little I saw of each made me think of them as competent. For all the talk about Conte and Wright — and much of it deserved — the weakest part of our D the second half of the season was our LB corp. Just atrocious stuff with the two rookies in there. I’d rather not see Bostic or Greene starting unless they’re brilliant in camp and the pre-season.

      • tobijohn

        I’d like to see what Williams can do. Granted Anderson couldn’t do it all and with a slimmer Briggs and Williams back, the focus can go to the D line. Oh yeah, how about a little punting completion too…

      • MB30SD

        LBs can’t play when the DL isnt doing their jobs. Tough to make tackles when the olinemen blow past our dline and is in your face in 1 second.

        We need two bad ass new safeties. those two should never see another NFL field again.

        I liked both anderson and williams. Def should bring them back

        • SC Dave

          I see. LBs cannot do their jobs when the DL isnt, but safeties are supposed to when DL AND LBs are not?

          Since you know that I know nothing abut football, perhaps you can explain that apparent logical inconsistency so that I will be less ignorant?

          • MB30SD

            you have a man you are supposed to cover… cover him no matter where he goes.

            …or, you hear M/M and you think briggs said zone coverage. but you’re the only one on D playing zone while everyone else plays man.

            Either way you are dog shit and you need to be cut RIGHT NOW.

            Feel less ignorant now dave? Fuck, you certainly don’t sound like it.

    • MB30SD

      Pep needs to retire.

      FA:

      RD 3 – DE
      RD 4 – Corner
      RD 5 – TE or Safety or Dline… whichever is best at our pick
      RD 6 & 7 – Whatever’s left at BPA (yeah, I said it)

      • BerwynBomber

        I might draft an LB in there. In terms of the TE … nah. The only O player we should even consider is a QB in mid or later rounds. Even if you tag or re-sign Jay, I like the idea of a) letting Trestman get his hands on a kid to develop long-term, and b) carrying three QBs on the team. Carrying two designated ST players like Weems and Costanzo seems like a luxury. I would be willing to part with one if Trestman likes a QB in this draft.

        • MB30SD

          depending on how much jay and mccown cost us, assuming we keep both, it would be crazy to spend a pick and a mill on a project QB… unless of course trest and emery agree they’ve found the next brady in rd 5+.

          • BerwynBomber

            One lost D draft pick will not make or break next year’s D squad — especially in the mid- or late rounds. And yes, I assume both Trest and Emery would have to be sold on a young QB to draft him. But c’mon, we got a QB whisperer and we don’t want him molding a kid from scratch? Jay and McCown are fine for what they are, but fuck, let’s think big — like the next ten years at the most important position on the field.

          • MB30SD

            Oh, I totally get what you’re thinking… and I agree, but dude. Our D was our D this year.

            So, I am ALL in for using every single draft pick and FA dollar on totally rebuilding the D – save a center if there’s one available for the right $.

            Look, if we bring the O back wholesale… exactly as is, AND totally rebuild the D like we did the O this year so that at the very least they’re ranked right around 15th avg in everything… think about that. We’ll fucking destroy people next year.

            Let’s fix the D, then in the 2015 draft we pick up our next franchise QB.

          • Rodgers Dead

            why waste a pick on a college qb in the late rounds when you can always get a Jordan Palmer or Jordan Rodgers for a couple hundred thousand. Known entities that have experience in the pro game.

          • BerwynBomber

            Because Trestman might like some kid in the draft a ton more than Jordan Palmer?

          • Rodgers Dead

            yeah, uh, Brady wasn’t exactly chopped liver in college. It was lunacy and shitty coaching decisions by Michigan that fucked with his draft position.

          • MB30SD

    Faaair deals!

    • tobijohn

      You recovered quickly…

      • MB30SD

        naw, still pissed. Trying to trick myself into focusing on something else

  • Rodgers Dead

    They asked Bowman what the fuck happened on that last pass and he just couldn’t bring himself to answer it. He didn’t blame anyone by name but certainly didn’t blame himself so….uh….let’s be honest. It was Conte. Bowman said there was miscommunication in the D backfield and that it shouldn’t have happened.
    The other Conte killer for me was the ball that he dove for that somehow went through his body like he was a ghost and that was caught by Quarless on a previous scoring drive. Brutal.

    • MB30SD

      dude, those two plays were cutty’s fault maings. Cutty lost this game for us.

      (sorry dave, whatever psychosis has overtaken you tonight it’s too funny not to use)

      • SC Dave

        GO read about correlation versus correlation. Start with Freakonomics.

        Bottom line is simple. Big game. Cutler. Bears loss.

        • MB30SD

          read it about 5 years ago maings. it’s called conte blew his coverage and his man scored the game winning td. How’s that for the freakanomics of 1+1=2

    • tobijohn

      It’s going to break MB’s heart but Conte still has a year left on his contract and management is going to rationalize keeping him by saying the real problem was the front seven. He’ll be back…

      • MB30SD

        why would you do that to me tj?

        • tobijohn

          Kick ’em when he’s down!

    • tobijohn

      I think he was going for the pick instead of just knocking it down. Can’t recall if that was a third down play…

      • Rodgers Dead

        Conte laid there on the ground after he missed that INT because he knew that he just fucked up royally. He probably cried a little as he lay there.

        • tobijohn

          That’s why I could never be a professional athlete. After that and the last infamous play (we really need to come up with a name for it), they’d have to put me on a suicide watch…

          • MB30SD

            “The Conte”

            or… “The SC Dave”

            or… “It was all cutler’s fucking fault!”

            Hahahaha

          • SC Dave

            Cutler v Packers 1-9. The numbers speak for themselves.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            In the battle of causation vs. causation, who will win? Dave knows!

    • Ufficio

      From the reply it looked like it actually bounced off Conte’s shoulder and into Quartless’s hands.

      We had some shit luck today.

  • MB30SD

    have I even mentioned how much I hate having to listen to chris ‘turkey face’ collinsworth.

    My god man.

      I’ve got it on mute…

    • DSupreme

      FUCK Collinsworth, that dumb pussy!

  • DSupreme

    I’m pissed! I can’t help it but I live and die with my Chicago teams. It makes it worse that we lost to the fuck ass Pack and that douche Rodgers on a blown coverage! This season was so fucking up and down though. The defense was the worse I’ve seen in my lifetime (was born in 1980), but at least we had an offense this season which made things interesting. I hope Cutty comes back, there’s no one we can have play the position next season who is better IMO… I went off on Stephen A Smith on Twitter after the game for dick riding ARodge (what else is new) and clowning the Bears. All of a sudden, about 5 pussies came out of nowhere defending there fav TV personality and then the rest was history. Gotta love getting “I’ll come whoop your ass threats on Twitter from e-thugs! LOL… Anyway, I think the future is bright boys… Bring on next season already! #BearDown

  • johnnywad

    Next DBB road trip is to Dave’s house when they announce Cutler’s new deal. He’s bringing in booze, hookers, and even a bouncy house in the back yard to celebrate. Conte’s tending bar and Wright is parking cars. Its gonna be great.

    • SC Dave

      So long as none of them are wearing blue and orange, I’m good.

    • tobijohn

      Count me in. And fellas, don’t forget to tip the help…

    • MB30SD

      Oh oh oh… can we get the castle bouncey with the ball pit and water slide?!? Can we… pleeeeaaaase!!!

  • SC Dave

    Gawd, I keep seeing that picture at the top of the thread. And seeing the one QB on the right.

    • MB30SD

      you mean the best QB ever to have played the game… with the highest QB rating of all time?

      Yeah, that must be so awesome to have lucked out and picked him up in the draft in the early 1st round.

      Daaaaaave.

  • SC Dave

    Go Panthers!!

  • tobijohn

    It’s official: Bears get the 14th pick in 2014

    • MB30SD

      dude, that’s GOT to be our highest pick in a loooong time. WE’ve been picking 20-23 for as long as I remember.

      I’ve clicked into 2014 mode. fuck it.

      Which FS and/or DE can we get

      • Ufficio

        Can Emery draft defense?

        • tobijohn

          Guess we should look at the KC roster but I’m going to guess that he can. But then again, there was that first round DE and that third round DB…

          • MB30SD

            that was mari and lovie respectively

            Bank it. Right canada?

      • tobijohn

        That’s someone else’s department. Paging NBIT?

      damn man… feel badly for him. Wanted him to be the hero tonight. Oh well, guess it doesn’t matter which Dallas QB chokes in dec.

  • PapaBear has a Dick up his Ass

    You little fucking whiney bitches! Your team fucking sucks dick! Your organization fucking sucks dick!
    Your transvestite coach can’t help you. Walter Steroid Payton can’t help you. You blame the refs, they had nothing to do with the outcome of that game. Your team is STUPID! Green Bay beats your ass every fucking year, this year is especially funny when Rodgers is out for 8 weeks and we still win the division. AAHaaa Haaaaa. Once again we keep you out of the playoffs. That was the superbowl for me!

    • Bounce

      Wow!! Typical packers fan. Sore loser as well as a sore winner. Wtf?!? It was a good game could have gone either way. Missed calls, bad calls, dropped passes, etc. was not as if the packers were playing lights out.

      Eat a dick you troll ass pussy! The Niners are gonna go up there next Sunday and stomp you bitchez the fuck out!

      • MB30SD

        This guy sounds like he’s got the mental capacity of a 5 year old. It’s not worth it. just ignore them. That and they’re all UFC champions and they’ll kill you if they were ever to leave their mommy’s basement.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    “The confusion on the fateful 4th down play carried over into the locker room after the game.

    “It’s man coverage,” Bears head coach Trestman said, calling it a “zero blitz”.

    “It wasn’t man-to-man,” cornerback Tim Jennings said. “It was one of
    those check zone, fire zones. I think we blitzed everybody.”

    Well, that pretty much explains it. The replay shows Conte playing
    zone, letting Cobb go behind him. Bowman was running with the outside
    receiver and appears to realize that Conte wasn’t going to stay on Cobb,
    but by then it’s too late. Cobb, realizing he was going to be wide
    open, actually put his hand in the air about eight yards down field
    before he even passed Conte.
    “That’s us as a secondary. I’m not going throw nobody under the bus,” Bowman said”

    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2013/12/29/hoge-fitting-ending-to-dreadful-defensive-season/

    • MB30SD

      AKA, conte blew the coverage and was the reason the packers got the game-winning td, Period.

      Chris… buh bye.

    • Rodgers Dead

      reports that Mel Tucker just quietly gave Chris a hug and that Chris refused to talk to the media. It’s apparent what happened.
      With a middle of the road defense this year we maybe lose 3 or 4 games. They will upgrade the D.
      Marshall already took Alshon aside and told him they are doing the Florida thing again. Domination.

      • underway

        Hug that fucka good bye! While there was more, Conte has been a non healing sore all year. Piss poor tackling, horrible angles, blown coverages the list goes on and on. Its time to find a replacement at FS. That postion should be one of the best tacklers on your team, he often has to come up and make open field tackles. We all know that is not a Conte Strong point….

        • Rodgers Dead

          in this new NFL the FS has become pretty much the most important position on the field. We may have to use a 1st or 2nd round pick on one. There are very few badass FS in the league that weren’t picked in the first or second round.

          • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

            It’s going to depend what D we ride with.

            FS in Cover-2 just have to be serviceable. The pass rush is waaaay more important.

            No doubt in my mind that if we could actually get a pass rush with only 4, Tucker wouldn’t have had to blitz and put Conte covering Cobb (and what CB yet alone S can cover Cobb one on one?).

            at 14, we can definitely draft a top 1-2 S, no doubt about that, but if we stay with a 4-3 and we don’t get a pass rusher in FA, it won’t matter if Ronnie Lott were back there.

          • Rodgers Dead

            lol, well, it would matter a little.

          • MB30SD

            See that’s the fucking thing… until the chicago bears got ahold of his worthless ass chris conte had played football for most of his life… but not a single down of any of it at fs.

            He was a fucking corner his entire fb career. And in college on a shitty pac-12 squad. Dude IS a fucking corner!!!

            If emery continues the joke/project at fs I will write him a persoal letter. Holy fucking shit it’s mind boggling!!!!

            Btw, hardin was the same fucking thing… except he’d been injured and hadn’t played any fb for almost 2 years when lovie picked him in rd3!!

          • MB30SD

            Damn… I’m trying to think if there’s anyone on the blog who’s been saying this for the last two years. Hmmmmm…. I’m thinking.

            Look gents I’m not nostrafuckingdamus. It’s very fucking evident… what yonny said.

            Fire tucker and conte and dave…. and get us a real fucking fs.

            Signing kerry r to a 1 year deal after he’s finished his man mojito will do just fine… then trade up and get the best motherfucking bad ass fs on the board right off the bat. Just needs to be done once and for all. 10 years of turrible safeties be dammed.

      • Johnathan Wood

        take Marquess Wilson with them, please. He had one hell of a catch today.

        • Rodgers Dead

          they have him for 7th rd money so they will be putting 10lbs on him this offseason. They like that kid.

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    That’s a fucking heartbreaker. No other words for it.

  • BerwynBomber

    Wow, Steelers got ripped off by what happened out in SD. Refs handed that game to the Chargers via a couple off highly questionable calls/no-calls. Pretty embarrassing stuff.

  • underway

    “This is the NFL: You don’t do your job, they make changes,’’ defensive tackle Stephen Paea said. “It’s all business.’’ Change Please! Start at FS.

  • Rodgers Dead

    I also hope everything is ok with Earl and his family. I’m thinking that it’s not ok unfortunately.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Meanwhile, FA S Kerry Rhodes is sipping a mojito in the Caribbean…

    • Rodgers Dead

      is “mojito” slang for “penis of the employee from the jetski rental at the hotel”??

      • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

        That image is still preferable to Conte getting burned on that 4rth and 8.

        Sadly, Conte actually had a decent game until then. Oh well. From what I’ve read post-game, Conte does look like the culprit.

        The way he charged to the line of scrimmage and stayed around the first line marker, I thought that was his zone and that Tucker assumed the blitz would get to Rodgers before Cobb ran by him.

        Fuck.

        • Rodgers Dead

          the cheese converted 3 fucking 4th downs on that drive and a 3rd down. I think one cannot stress enough how badly the D screwed up. Who gives up 3 fourth down conversions on one drive. It was a fucking 90yd drive.

          • Johnathan Wood

            to be fair, the first 2 were both for under a yard, which is gonna have a high probability of conversion.

          • BerwynBomber

            Hate to say it, but it was a clutch as hell drive. Type of thing that cements careers. As if Mr. Discount Double Check needed it.

          • MB30SD

            Yeah. I never saw it coming either. Never. That’s why I was happy he came back just for this game. … just like shady.

            Shady… you fucking putz.

  • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

    Bear fans better be praying that the Browns also can DC Horton.

    No premiere DC is going to hit the market. Rex Ryan is re-signed. I’m not sold on Leslie Frazier as DC. Lovie aint coming here as a DC. Anyone know of any potential Tucker replacements?

    • BerwynBomber

      Good point. Most DCs won’t go anywhere unless their team sucks, their HC was fired or they’re being offered an HC position themselves. I’m still torn on Tucker. Not a fan but we had killer injuries, the D was getting old, and he inherited a system not his own.

    • 505Bears

      Sign me up. I play better schemes on madden than dumbshit tucker..

    • bearsfantillend

      really no use to be wishful for a new DC. Tucker is not going anywhere. He will not be fired. He will be here next year.

  • BerwynBomber

    Man, that game-winning TD is gonna live a long time in this rivalry. Still coming to grips with it. What a gut-punch.

    • Johnathan Wood

      reminds me of the one to Greg Jennings a few years back. Just a total busted coverage giving up an easy 50ish yard TD with the game on the line.

  • Green and Gold

    Hahaha Bwawawahahaha!!!! Fuck you losers. Bears still suck!!!! Go Pack Go!!!! Rodgers beat the shot out if you pussies.

    • 505Bears

      You troll, sheep shagging prick. Take that rodgers bullshit home. You probably got your first cheese tbag for xmas you bandwagon fuck!!

  • 505Bears

    Sheep shag gold is right. These bears suck. 2 chances and nothing. This defense was/is dogshit. Conte can go fuck himself. Anyone that is a “brightside” guy buys lotto tickets. What a joke. That bullshit beloved talk, fuck that. Let’s wake up boys. We never deserved this division and won’t until we get a defense. Bears are the new cubs…quit drinking the kool-aid

    • bearsfantillend

      on the brightside the kool-aid this year is purple flavored, and we only have about 5 players on defense under contract.

  • bearsfantillend

    I reviewed the game winning TD play more closely, multiple things went wrong.
    1. Conte just blew coverage for the TD. no doubt about it
    2. Bears were blitzing the middle, Peppers lost containment, and allowed Rodgers to move to the outside. If Pep doesn’t lose contain, not sure Rodgers has time to make the throw.Granted Pep appeared to have clear path to QB, but he was responsible for the outside containment.
    3. Major Wright would have been called for at least defensive holding if not pass interference for tackling the guy he was covering.
