    First half – Matt Stafford &

    • Tom

      Sack Stafford & Tame Lions

      (Sack from wedding crashers, Staff, Ford & Taye, M, Lions)

      • GPLDAN

        Well done

      • DaBearsBlog

        Well done! Thought this one was a bit tricky due to Sack being used.

        • Tom

          Thanks! That’s what google reverse image search is for, right?!

  • Big Mike

    BTFD Happy Thanksgiving.

  • Old broken romanian Jericho

    A shot of bourbon and turkey gravy for the men of the family at kickoff.
    A look of disdain shot at the men from the women of the family at kickoff.

    • SC Dave

      It’s going to be Fuller’s London Pride for me. Cheers to Jay and Johnny!
      Hopefully, I’ll be smart enough to not post during the game.

  • Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Hope you all have a great day celebrating with friends and family.

  • BillW

    Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

    I’m stickin’ to my prediction of Bears scoring 30 plus. Just a hunch based on. Trestman not having practices to blind him of what’s actually happening

    I hope my dad uncle and grandpa have a nice Thanksgiving up there with Papa Bear.

    BEAR DOWN!!!

    • NewBearInTown

      By the way, well done on satisfying the bet. You covered the nut, now for the vig.
      Make a menu for Thanksgiving explaining how consuming each dish is compared to what the Bears will do to the Lions. All the blog folks can help out. I will start.

      Drop 30 points on them faster than Jeff’s family gets through their first 30 pack!

      • Old broken romanian Jericho

        go big on the first play like how I go big on my first plate.

      • SC Dave

        Carve them like that well-basted turkey

      • DocNitty(BallsStillOrnamental)

        Mash them like those yummy potatoes.

      • NewBearInTown

        Make Stafford’s pocket more dangerous than Johnny’s turkey frier!

  • CanadaBear

    I’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving (Canadian Thanksgiving is the same day as Columbus Day in the States) but wish everyone a great day. If you are traveling please be careful so we can abuse you when you get back to the blog! Happy Turkey Day and bear the fuck down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Old broken romanian Jericho

    I’m outside with my brother in law prepping the deep fryer for the turkeys….which is code for hiding in the garage drinking whiskey next to the already set up deep fryer predicting how bad alshon is going to make the Detroit DBs look.
    please baby Jesus just quick count the first 3 plays to get a first down and take the crowd out of it so there is no false start to begin the game

    • BillW

      Careful with the deep frierJohnny. The only people I want burned are the Detroit secondary!

      • SC Dave

        I’m okay with continuous burning of the Detroit offensive line too.

  • beninnorcal

    Happy Turkay Day, to all my bears brethren and even Cheesy and Barb the paler. I’ve been brining my bird all night gonna slap it in the oven at halftime.

  • SC Dave

    My daughter works retail, which means a b.s. shit starting at midnight. Since she wanted to try to get some sleep first, our feasting on lasagna, salad, and pumpkin pie is done.

    Gives me a nice solid base to pour beer atop over the next several hours.

    Bear down, compadres.

    • NewBearInTown

      Sorry your daughter has to deal with the mobs. But for my money, those small family meals where everyone comes out of the fog of a crazy work-week for a few hours of good food and better company, those are what memories are made of.

  • DocNitty(BallsStillOrnamental)

    Happy Thanksgiving, my brothers!

    Remember, Thanksgiving is about Football, family, friends, feasting, and FUN. Nobody said anything about winning. Try to be happy and have fun no matter what happens.

    But still….BEAR THE FUCK DOWN!!!

  • BearDown100393

    Bears defense came to play!

  • Jack Lacan

    No bagels today…

  • BerwynBomber

    Well that was easy.

  • Jack Lacan

    Was that the Bears that I just watched????

  • Shady

    So much for getting shut out, eh Jefe?

  • BearDown100393

    That was a great opening drive. Lions defense looks overdosed on tryptophan.

  • Shady

    So the Bears hadn’t scored in the 1st quarter of the last 4 games. Not only do they score in today’s 1st quarter, they score a TD on the FIRST DRIVE!

    • DocNitty(BallsStillOrnamental)

      After a 3 and out which was after a great opening kickoff.

  • wreckinball

    Looks like a track meet

  • Jack Lacan

    Last team with ball wins???

  • DocNitty(BallsStillOrnamental)

    Man I wish we had Peanut to cover Megatron.

    • wreckinball

      Man Tate double Tron

  • wreckinball

    Ok shutout talk is over but good stop

  • Shady

    First run of the game stuffed on 3rd and 1. Fack.

  • Shady

    Conte concussion.

    • BearDown100393

      A young man with a disturbing medical situation that continues to re-occur.

      • Shady

        Disturbing indeed.

        • wreckinball

          Needs to retire

          • SC Dave

            Definitely starting to look that way. Hope he has a decent degree

  • Shady

    HE WENT TO JARED!

    • Shady

      SACK FUMBLE NOM NOM NOM!

  • Shady

    Better fucking punch it in here…

    • Shady

      ALSHON! 2 TDs

  • wreckinball

    Alright now

  • BearDown100393

    Alshon loves Motown.

  • wreckinball

    Have to double Tron

    • BearDown100393

      The dude is a beast.

  • wreckinball

    Late on the rotate

  • Jack Lacan

    Vereeeeeeen.. No Bannerman!!!!!

  • Jack Lacan

    Good to see Robotics, California Raisin, and other toys in garage selling Toyotas…

  • Jack Lacan

    Well it is pleasant to watch Bears ahead against a “respectable” team…and we made a third and one…

  • Jack Lacan

    Oh and I forgot — Happy Thanksgiving to all…here and there…and another first down…

    • wreckinball

      You too and another first down

  • wreckinball

    Come on Jay Unicorn

  • NewBearInTown

    Garza’s not coming back. The guy is done and we’ve got several talented guards on the roster as it is.

  • wreckinball

    That sucks need a stop

  • Jack Lacan

    Well, ok…no pic…Jay does throw well on the run — roll out???

    • wreckinball

      Agree seems like he could break contain easy and be able to run for 5 every time

  • SC Dave

    Marshall needs.to stop droppin the ball

  • Jack Lacan

    Someone just said – we need one of those guys that can catch with two or three fingers falling down…

  • Jack Lacan

    Another Bear (Washington) on the meat wagon…

  • Jack Lacan

    Going through secondary like buttah…

  • wreckinball

    Fucking zebras

  • wreckinball

    Thank you zebras

  • wreckinball

    Fuck!

  • Jack Lacan

    Nothing is over…

  • wreckinball

    Shows u how much respect they have for our D O has to go Jay this is what we pay you for

  • SC Dave

    We really cant cover amyone.

    Time to show up, offense

    • wreckinball

      Wow

  • wreckinball

    Ok WTF

  • wreckinball

    Give up

  • Old broken romanian Jericho

    Garza is playing very well against us today.

  • SC Dave

    Anotther fail on o… they never stop the other teams’ momenntum. Exasperating. ..

    • wreckinball

      To spread the blame the O sucks also

      • Cutty’sMom

        Cutler has completed 74% of his passes for 2 TDs with no INTs against the 3rd best defense in the league.

      • Cutty’sMom

        Blame Garza. Singlehandedly killed us.

        • wreckinball

          Not sure who to blame but O has to drive and get a TD to open 2nd half

  • wreckinball

    Tucker change something!

  • wreckinball

    I see Turkeys

  • SC Dave

    We so need a mlb

  • wreckinball

    WTF WE Cannot single cover Tron!

  • SC Dave

    Well, this game is now over.

    • wreckinball

      Embarassing

    • beninnorcal

      At least we already stuck a fork in them already this year.

  • wreckinball

    And give up

  • RenoBear

    We are the elixir for every teams struggling offense. Fuck I hate our team sometimes. We can NEVER sustain ANYTHING. Or stop a teams momentum. So damn frustrating so irritating. Even though the rational side of me expects them to be who they are (an undisciplined, poorly coached team), it still kills me when I see it… Smh

    • SC Dave

      We really needed to at least run out the half when it got to 17-14. But we never step up on o when we need it.

      • RenoBear

        Never ever never ever

    • #34

      I know how you feel. I am a Canadian and this has been my team for over 35 years. I have had it. Every year its something different. They just cant dver seem to get there shit together. Always something wrong. Its very frustrating.

      Ownership!!! Do something and field a winning team. Team meaning from top top to bottom!!

  • wreckinball

    Ok Phil is right our game plan sucks Hey here’s an idea copy success

    Megaton can’t be covered by short DBs um and we have two gigantic WRs

    NE put their #1 DB on Tate and doubled Tron Detroit scored 9 points

  • wreckinball

    OMG Trestman don’t single cover Tron it’s not fucking rocket science

  • RenoBear

    Ok so according to the announcers the Lions are Super Bowl contenders now… Smfh

  • SC Dave

    Marshall killing us

  • wreckinball

    Jeffery is our Tron keep doing it

  • wreckinball

    Ok that’s what I don’t like about Jay

    • BearDown100393

      Just that?

      • wreckinball

        He actually has not played bad today but Brady steps into that gets whacked completion first down just saying

    • Old broken romanian Jericho

      Are you serious? Even Phil Sims can point out the protection issues and lack of time to even get to the second read. Phil Sims dude

      • wreckinball

        See comment below Come on man

  • wreckinball

    Newsflash guess who they are going to throw to?

  • SC Dave

    Ok… lets have a pass rush

  • Old broken romanian Jericho

    The line is collapsing immediately. Feels like we are going back to pop passes or risk a sack. Line getting destroyed

    • SC Dave

      About half that drive there was plenty enough time. Jay is doing fine.

      Need a stop now, obviously

  • SC Dave

    Bostic occasionally loos good v run.

  • wreckinball

    Nice need a TD lets go

  • SC Dave

    THIS is when we need possession. Idiot sims taking about resting the d when it was just fucking halftime. Smh

  • BearDown100393

    That Old Spice commercial was beyond disturbing.

    • wreckinball

      Very strange yet they keep doing that shit

      • stats3599

        my wife belongs in that commercial.

  • wreckinball

    Here’s an idea Jay run 10 on that one

  • wreckinball

    That’s what kills us

    • BearDown100393

      Too many drops.

  • SC Dave

    How about a safety?

    • wreckinball

      We need some kind of crazy Lions mistake They are capable

      • GPLDAN

        Yep

  • GPLDAN

    Catch it Unicorn!

  • GPLDAN

    Fergie and Sutton need to hold

  • SC Dave

    Fuck… come on hurst

  • GPLDAN

    Hurst shifter

  • wreckinball

    Come on Hurst and then guess who

  • GPLDAN

    Megaton just sits in that center zone day.

    • wreckinball

      Double cover I mean?

  • GPLDAN

    Conte hurt big shock

  • RenoBear

    We are the cute for every teams passing game. Fuck

  • Old broken romanian Jericho

    95yd drive right now? Really?

  • RenoBear

    Fuck the lesbian

  • wreckinball

    And that’s why Stafford is better than Jay stepped into two big throws and made the play

  • SC Dave

    Do you suppose they will call the lions ever for holding?

    • RenoBear

      No. Never

  • GPLDAN

    Fuck Detroit

  • wreckinball

    By who?

  • wreckinball

    OMG stop

  • RenoBear

    Fucking joke

  • wreckinball

    Horrible fucking calls two of them

  • SC Dave

    Refs are killing us

  • GPLDAN

    95 mother fucking yards

    • SC Dave

      Aided at least twice by horrible cll

      And lions able to hold with impunity

  • SC Dave

    Refs will give them the td

  • wreckinball

    It’s inevitable just drink and eat until comatose

  • wreckinball

    When Mike Carey says its a bad call it’s really bad

  • wreckinball

    Sure give it to them

  • wreckinball

    Comical

  • GPLDAN

    Bostic smoked

  • wreckinball

    Bostic bench now

  • GPLDAN

    Game over

  • SC Dave

    Okay, time for the o to go out there and quit

  • GPLDAN

    Phil Simms all prick award

    • SC Dave

      Hes also retarded, i think

    • BearDown100393

      Jay was nominated.

  • wreckinball

    TD now plus a Lions fuckup only recipe

  • SC Dave

    GODDAMNIT, could cutler EVER pump fake?

  • Fixed4sure

    NFL games are decided by officials and not players these last couple of years. The anomalous stats against the spread prove it.

  • GPLDAN

    Pathetic

  • wreckinball

    Sorry Jay sucks

    • BerwynBomber

      He has played well today. But this dink and dunk stuff only goes so far.

      • wreckinball

        Zero point in that last pass and he hasn’t played as well as Stafford

    • Old broken romanian Jericho

      What about mills getting beat off the fucking snap you fucking joke

      • wreckinball

        You’re right it’s a team sucks ass effort

        • Old broken romanian Jericho

          I mean if you are alshon and the ball lands literally 1 fucking yard from you on a bomb what the fuck are we supposed to do? One fucking yard away? Fucking dive

          • SC Dave

            Rodgers would have droped the balls in his hamds. 39 times of 40

          • BerwynBomber

            You’re comparing Jay to Rodgers? C’mon. I’m no huge Cutler fan but seems a bit unfair. Rodgers does shit that 31 QBs in the league can’t do. Let’s keep the Cutty criticisms realistic.

          • Old broken romanian Jericho

            Dave he is going to the god damn hall of fame. And nelson or Cobb would kill themselves to make that catch

          • stats3599

            Ive seen Cutler up close many times, I just dont see the strong arm every one else talks about, I Don’t. There are many qb’s in the league with stronger arm than he has. I just dont see that same cannon arm folks talk of.

          • BearDown100393

            Go to Bourbonnais and watch a practice. Huge difference in arm strength versus the other qbs.

          • stats3599

            im talking other QB’s in the league not the bears qb’s.

          • BerwynBomber

            Yeah, Jay’s got a legit big arm. No denying that.

      • BerwynBomber

        I’d cut the O-line a little slack. This is the best D-line in the league. Jay hasn’t been hit as much as I thought he would be given we’ve only run the ball ten times the entire day.

    • SC Dave

      Tha t was awful by jay. Unfortunately, we’re stuck with him. No ability to lead. None.

      • wreckinball

        Yes he is so bad no one wants him

    • RenoBear

      Seriously dude get some new material. All gloom and bears suck cutler sucks coaches suck. These are all things that we know.. But we still pull for the TEAM and alwYs look for bright spots. You are a dredge on this blog. We all voice frustrations but your ‘I told you so’ commentary sucks man

      • wreckinball

        Dude seriously I pull for this team and call them like I see them I know criticizing Jay is a mortal sin but dude he sucks

        • RenoBear

          I know he does. I guess we all get sick of hearing it cuz we all know it unfortunately. He just has a major malfunction in the QB playing process. It fucking sucks cuz we are gonna have to deal with him for two more years.

      • wreckinball

        I know Reno I’m not part of the little club but remember pregame when everyone thought I was fucking nuts that Detroit would score some points Well be right every once in awhile Geez

        • RenoBear

          I agree… We cure any opposing teams offensive ailments

  • stats3599

    I wanted a Chicago win, but realistically, I never really thought they would go into Detroit on Thanksgiving and upset this years Lions team. The weaknesses truly do show up when you step up aginst better competition and forget about refs crap, calls go that way at home for every team, yes even at Soldier Field. Beating two mediocre teams the past two weaks and look poorly at that doesnt bode well moving forward. They played better but just not a very good team PERIOD! Happy Turkey Day to you all!

  • That offense just quit

  • BearDown100393

    Too much doom and gloom here. We are on the road. The game is nationally televised. And the defense has kept the opponent under 50 points so far…..

  • On 3rd and long down by two with struggling d…Jay dump off =quit

  • GPLDAN

    All this shake and bake makes me hungry

  • On thanksgiving I’m thankful we’re at least going to move up in the draft

    • SC Dave

      I’m thankful conte does not have another concussion

  • SC Dave

    Great… lets watch the o quit again

  • So ur telling me there’s a chance!

    • SC Dave

      Watch the o go fail pathetically… again.

    • stats3599

      Lloyd??? a bear fan?

  • We need cuttybadger, not his limp dicked evil twin who dumps it off instead of flinging it

  • BearDown100393

    The dude in the pilgrim outfit was a dead ringer for Chris Christie.

  • Old broken romanian Jericho

    Marshall can’t jump why even run that route, he simply fell down

    • SC Dave

      You fucking kill me. If thats the case, WHY THROW THE FUCKING BALL THERE?

      • BearDown100393

        Someone needs to take the hootch away from grandpa and point the wheelchair in the corner for a timeout before he starts up another Jay’s awesome tirade.

      • Old broken romanian Jericho

        Has to, surely you aren’t suggesting that cutler ignore Marshall if they keep putting him out there.

        • SC Dave

          That’s exactly what I expect him to do. If Marshall is not getting it done (what did he have, three drops going into that play?), why throw it into double coverage to him?

  • SC Dave

    Classic Jay. Season over.

    • stats3599

      Absolutely NOTHING classic about Jay!

  • GPLDAN

    I’m not happy we went to Jared

  • BearDown100393

    Bostic gives the Lions a hard fought first down.

  • Shady

    Time for some turkey…. Wild Turkey…

  • GPLDAN

    Wanted Megatron to score again

    • Shady

      Culpepper? Really?

      • GPLDAN

        Tee hee

        • Shady

          I just made you two trade offers.

    • Yeah gp? ! Lol
      I really don’t care cuz barring some miracle, I’m in the championship round, but others might be depending on u, like shady, sac, Frank….

  • wreckinball

    I need a Unicorn TD

  • stats3599

    The Battle of the Five Armies a must see!…id take that right now or even if they cut in for Heide!

  • wreckinball

    Getting beat by my son in FF but he has BM I have Unicorn

  • Old broken romanian Jericho

    Is that on cutler too????????????????????????? Holy shit

    • wreckinball

      So they sniffed out that screen go figure

      • Old broken romanian Jericho

        I’m talking about yet another whiffed block before that screen resulting in instantaneous pressure.

  • Old broken romanian Jericho

    Can’t even get to the last step of s 5 step drop guys

    • GPLDAN

      Line getting crushed true

      • BerwynBomber

        I actually thought they fared well until we get so far behind it became true pin the ears back time. Never trying to establish a running game either didn’t help.

        • BearDown100393

          What was the offense trying to establish here today?????

          • BerwynBomber

            A semi-productive version of John Shoop?

          • BearDown100393

            Shoop? Maybe. I thought an old playbook with Terry Shea’s name on it was found at Halas this week.

          • Shady

            More of a Shoop/Martz hybrid.

            Shartz.

          • BerwynBomber

            Was it Shoop or Shea who was in love with the WR screen? I thought it was Shoop.

        • SC Dave

          This. Protection was good most of the game.

  • wreckinball

    So they sniffed out that oh so tricky screen Go figure?

  • wreckinball

    Ok lay down

    • RenoBear

      Cutler doesn’t even care enough to try to fit a guy in the flat in stride… Not surprising

      • wreckinball

        Yea he definitely exudes don’t care

        • SC Dave

          And we’re stuck with him for at least another season. Probably two.

          • wreckinball

            Two years can’t trade because no one wants him with his ridiculous contract can’t cut because of the cap

  • wreckinball

    Unfortunately no lions on my ff team

  • Dump off =quit

  • Old broken romanian Jericho

    I’m sorry but you guys are blind, have a great day

  • GPLDAN

    Now they run it down the Bears throat

    • wreckinball

      Can they take a knee

  • wreckinball

    Are you a Jay fan or a Bear fan?

  • GPLDAN

    Shae will teach them a lesson

  • GPLDAN

    Bell in beast mode

  • GPLDAN

    When you come out in I formation without Megatron and everybody knows its run time and they do this, then your team is soft. Bears are soft on D

  • Shady

    14 pts in the 1st, 3 pts the rest of the game. smh

    • No consistency. That’s bad coaching. That’s why I was hoping to lose to lovie at home. Guarantee a new regime. But, here we are once more sucking vs good teams

      • SC Dave

        And it’s dropping passes. And getting caught for holding. And failing to lead your offense on the field. It’s all these things.

        • johnnywad

          The problem is systemic. I don’t see how they move on to next year with this staff intact.

          There isnt much to be done with the major players on O based on contracts and perceived talent which I’m really starting to question. The D will look quite a bit different. Special teams will be new minus Robbie and maybe P.O.D.

          Seriously, how do you fix this? I just can’t imagine trotting out Trestman and Tucker again next Summer.

          • SC Dave

            Damn well ought to be questioning the *perceived* talent. We have ONE consistently good skill player on offense. ONE.

            You know, the one that many on this blog didn’t want to pay a few seasons back,

    • SC Dave

      And 7 of those 14 because Allen gave the O the ball at the Lions’ 5.

      So really, the offense generated a mighty 10 points. Awful.

      The ’85 D would not win with this offense.

  • wreckinball

    Wow lions show some mercy

    • SC Dave

      No surprise. They have to play us again. Probably a game for seeding for them, and nothing at stake for us. So pissing us off would just be stupid.

  • BearDown100393

    Marshall with the quarterback slide. I guess that is acceptable.

  • BearDown100393

    “Bears defense cannot hold up against top quarterbacks” – Simms. Matt Stafford is a top quarterback? What does that make our quarterback?

    • GPLDAN

      Indifferent and rich

      • SC Dave

        I think the nail in Phil Emery’s coffin historically will become betting the franchise position on Cutler. We all hoped he was the right guy. We all (well, all but one) know he is not.

        • BearDown100393

          Franchise tag would have made too much sense.

    • wreckinball

      Stafford top QB ?everything is relative

  • BerwynBomber

    Jay and Tresty desperately trying to pad their O stats. Whatever.

    • SC Dave

      No shit. Maybe the both have Jay on their FF teams. smh.

    • BearDown100393

      #6 only padded his interception total.

    • Old broken romanian Jericho

      Should they fucking give up?

      • BerwynBomber

        Seventeen down? Less than two minutes to go? Yeah, I may run the ball or pull my starters. Hell, in the first Cheese game they pulled the plug with four or five minutes to go.

        Not a big deal either way but it is questionable.

  • SC Dave

    Hmmm… a little stat padding for Cutler in garbage time, I see.

    • Old broken romanian Jericho

      Every QB in the league pads their stats on us. How many for Stafford today? 449?

  • wreckinball

    Fitting finish

    • GPLDAN

      Jay padding his stats

      • Ball’s in ur court, Bortles

        • Old broken romanian Jericho

          Insane

        • SC Dave

          No Johnny, numbers. Facts.

      • Old broken romanian Jericho

        Adding an INT so we can continue the insane narrative that somehow the quarterback is the main issue on the team. Insane.

        • SC Dave

          Only on the offense.

  • BerwynBomber

    Well, Minny and TB results were a bit of mirage. Now we are truly playing out the thread. I actually didn’t think Cutty played as horribly as others — he certainly looked better today than he did in the last four games. But what now? Is Fales still on the practice squad? I don’t see much reason to give Clausen a look. Fales is tremendously long odds too but if he’s still around, I would suit him up and get him ready for a game or two. Might as well as see if you hit the lottery.

    • SC Dave

      I was hoping after seeing how well the Vikings did against GB that we might have something. But we don’t.

      The plus is I don’t have to waste any more time watching this team for the rest of the season. The minus is I probably will anyway => hopeless.

      • BerwynBomber

        Gotta stay with the team. Could still be interesting. But they’re playing for next year at this point.

        • SC Dave

          Yeah, BB, I know. I’m just as pathetic a Bears fan as you. Can’t help myself.

        • wreckinball

          Yea you’re right WTF else am I doing on Sunday

    • wreckinball

      Problem is he didn’t play that “bad”

      Agree He was also the 2nd best QB on the field

      D sucks we knew this This years debacle is on the O and the QB

      Old and broken will disagree

      • BerwynBomber

        Agreed. Story of the year is how disappointing the O has been.

        • SC Dave

          The ’85 D would have won no where close to 15 games with this offense. Maybe 9 or 10, tops.

          • wreckinball

            The 85 O was good The D was best ever overwhelming

            Walter Willie G Mac was pretty decent and a good O line

          • BearDown100393

            Walter Payton did some good things….

      • BearDown100393

        He can hang his hat on being better than McCown and Geno Smith this season.

        • SC Dave

          Nice. And especially with respect to the numbers on his paychecks.

      • madscout12

        He wasn’t the 2nd best QB on the field.

        One QB was throwing to WIDE OPEN WR every play. The other was not.

        You can’t compare a QB playing the NO 1 D and a QB playing the Bears D. If Cutler is playing against our D, he tears them a new one.

        • wreckinball

          Yea he was second best. Bears 2nd drive of the half he back foots a pass to an open Unicorn . Incomplete punt.

          Then Stafford steps into two throws under pressure and puts up a TD

          game over

  • GPLDAN

    Go Eagles

  • BerwynBomber

    49 PAs. 8 RAs. We served Martz his walking papers for smaller pass/run ratios.

    And did I fail to mention Matt Forte is the best player on the team?

    • wreckinball

      Absolutely Forte man what a waste of agreat year for him

  • Viva

    Mark Trestman violated rule number 1 on the objective today. He was a pussy at the point of attack and got his team beaten for it. Unfuck this Phil!!!

    Dave Toub for HC.

  • Viva

    Happy thanksgiving to all..

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    As Mark Barron would said it… that’s a passive fucking defense. I don’t give a shit about the offense… I’m hating the Defense. When you play all those youngsters the worst thing is playing soft. You could fuck their development, twist their heads. You should make them attack, a hunter mentality. Either way you give up tons of points. At least make them think big.

    As I said before the game.. I’d chose a loss played the right way to a win by pure chance. They lose playing the wrong way. This is not new and it’s the reason I don’t really give a fuck about the Bears season in a while.

    PS: On the Calvin J TD there’s no way it’s Fuller’s fault. He’s rather outstanding on that play. At the max it’s Brock Vereen who should support over the top. He starts rolling to his left and is in no position to get there.
    Now… in theory that’s a huge mistake. He should help Hurst, who’s playing zone against the best WR in the NFL. The reality is I bet Vereen did what Tucker asked. And even if he didn’t that’s almost a worst thing. The play is a basic one… any player, rookie or not should never make such a mistake. That’s your Chicago Bears coaching staff. Can’t teach shit, can’t scheme shit.

    • BerwynBomber

      The D basically accounted for 7 pts today. The O accounted for 10. And the big money is sunk in the latter. I’m not saying the D played well — they didn’t — but the story continues to be our ineffectual, high-paid, talented offense.

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        Bad O is the norm. Whatever they do this season has little meaning.

        The youngsters on the D side are the only thing I care about. They are vital to the process going forward.

      • SC Dave

        This. This. This.

    • Jack Lacan

      Vereen — MIA all day…

      • Big Mike

        Vereen rookie 4th round draft choice
        What did you expect

        • SC Dave

          What? You were one of the legions (who the fuck he wasn’t) bitching about Conte. You got what you wanted.

          • Big Mike

            My comment was more about him being a rookie. I don’t think I was that vocal about Conte. Thought we needed an upgrade at safety. I was on board with the Bears decision to try and upgrade the DL and draft a CB. Thought they had brought in enough bodies at safety to have a decent competition and get better.

    • Big Mike

      Can’t win scoring 17 garza penalty was a back breaker

      • SC Dave

        The fact that the offense never recovered for the rest of the game is the real back-breaker. They had plenty of opportunities early in the second half to get back in the game. And failed.

        • Big Mike

          Yeah, they should have been able to, but for some reason they aren’t the type of team that does. Just saying they had a nice 23 yard gain there and looked to be developing a rhythm. Didn’t think it was going to be the end of the whole offensive production, but in hindsight it was a back breaker.

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        I don’t care about wins. I want things done the right way.

    • wreckinball

      Fuller should have been man on Tate Double up Tron Duh

      It’s ok to copy the Pats

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        you can’t play man if you don’t prepare for it. you just don’t wake up one morning and say ‘lets play the other way around’. The plan all along was playing zone. From the start of the season.
        Number 1 proof… Tim Jennings at nickel, instead of Fuller.

  • Jack Lacan

    Dined at half and did not return…had some wine and more wine and then some more wine…
    I must say that in the first half that the Bears “looked” like a football team…
    I will not comment on the second half or the final score…
    Onward…

  • Big Mike

    Bah fuck it. We suck.

    • johnnywad

      This sucks. I’m tired of it.

  • CanadaBear

    Nothing to see here. I was really bummed they just rolled over on O. This game isn’t on Cutler but something isn’t right with him. He literally never hits a guy in stride (I’m guessing that’s why they gave up on all those crossing routes) and the long bombs are usually like a jump ball hail mary. He used to take off when there was an opening. Now it’s just super safe, check downs, screens and bubble screens.

    Lots of people have been bagging on Briggs and asking to see the youngsters. Careful what you wish for. The youngsters suck. I’ll keep watching but I don’t think we’ll break the 28 point barrier. FUCK!

  • madscout12

    I’m just tired of not seeing easy throws. Yeah, Cutler has his issues, but you watch the Eagles today and Sanchez looked like Tom Brady because he was throwing to WIDE OPEN GUYS. Over and over again. Stafford was too. I didn’t see a “wow” throw from him all day, just throws to CJ and wide open dudes.

    Last time I saw an easy throw and catch was the TD to Alshon in the 1st GB game. Newsflash, they’re sitting on the screens, Trestman, because they know you have nothing else to throw at them.

  • BerwynBomber

    Seahawks looking a little post-season-y thus far.

    • BearDown100393

      The pace of the offense must be dizziness inducing for Trestman.

  • BerwynBomber

    Major league play by Wilson. Dude’s savvy.

    • BearDown100393

      We just are not used to seeing that type of stuff unless against the Bears.

  • BearDown100393

    Peter Pan Live versus Thursday Night Football next week. Tough one there.

    • wreckinball

      I hate the spotlight now Wish they could flex us out of next Thursday

      • BerwynBomber

        Don’t sweat it. Thurs night games are now on the NFL network. There is a dimmer switch when games are televised there.

      • BearDown100393

        So does the NFL Network.

  • wreckinball

    Holy shit WTF was that

  • GPLDAN

    More I see of NFC, more I see Packers in Super Bowl.

    Let’s see how they fare against a rolling Pats team. This game is their post season bell weather game.

    • BerwynBomber

      I’m not convinced they would beat THIS Seattle tonight either. This Seattle D looks like Seattle last year. (Wilson/Beast look good too.) Then again, take away Kap’s running ability and he’s in the bottom half of the QB pile.

      • GPLDAN

        Kap’s much touted arm has shown nothing to me. To me, he can’t make the outside throws, he’s pure death to the sidelines.

        • BerwynBomber

          Agreed. His accuracy generally sucks.

          • AlbertInTucson

            And he’s not seeing wide open receivers. Think Harbaugh still thinks he’s “Great with a capital G”?

  • huntinbare

    Just got home from the holiday…did not see but a few plays…too much family to catch up with…sadly I just read we had 5 third downs of 18 yards or more…that seems like disarray…. My heart wants this team to find itself; but right now my hearts hurts for them like it would if I were told a loved one has cancer…right now it feels like we are in the death zone of the worlds tallest peak…I just bkew up the photo of Cutler on the ESPN Chicago sight…just too look into his eyes and he looks horrible. .like he went ten rounds with Ali before the rope a dope years…I am happy for all of you that today was a time for love and gratitude with family and friends…here is hoping that part of your day brought some great memories . but I am just bummed and sad about the “situation” of our beloved Bears..I am reminded of a chant we used to sing in the bleachers in ’69 during the epic collapse…Every time I go to town someone kicks my dog around; makes no difference he’s a hound, they still kick my dog around”…refuse to look away and keep your hearts positive… We need each other in the death zone

  • AlbertInTucson

    Before the game started I posted

    Hopes: High.

    Expectations: Low.

    Results.

    Expectations: Met.

    Hopes: Dashed.

    Irrelevant before December.

    Isn’t that special.

  • BillW

    My 30 plus point prediction looked good for a while.. Then the Lions adjusted. I don’t think Trestman can.

    “Jay can make all the throws” everyone says. . I don’t think he can hit guys in stride. . So maybe that’s not true.

    Yet again we hear Trestman say “it starts with me” . Is it just me or is anyone else sick of hearing that? . I don’t know about the NFL but in my line of work if I said that as often as him I’d be fired.

    How can anyone blame the offense when the defense gives up so many yards and points? Who cares if you lose in a shootout or like this?

    How can anyone blame the defense when the offense can’t score like they should? Who cares if you loses a shootout or like this?

    See where I’m going with this? We aren’t good at ANYTHING. Arguing about which is worse is poitless.

    Trestman won’t be fired I don’t think. . Not sure about tucker. But one thing I do believe. . The Bears won’t hire Rex Ryan as DC because they won’t want Trestman to feel like he has a possible replacement on his staff.

    Realistically I don’t see much to be optimistic about the next few yeards. I’ll still watch of course but it feels like the 70s to me. Happy when they win but no expectation of them competing

    • AlbertInTucson

      “It starts with me” .

      Ranking right up there with Abe Gibron’s “We had a good week of practice.”

    • Doc Hamstring

      “won’t hire Rex Ryan… because they won’t want Trestman to feel like he has a possible replacement on his staff.”

      I think that’s EXACTLY whey they WOULD hire Ryan.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Pete Carroll passes up a gimme FG that makes it a 3 possession game? I don’t get it.

    • BerwynBomber

      Made no sense but tonight their D was the ultimate insurance policy.

  • AlbertInTucson

    And now, a word from our sponsor…



    This season hasn’t been too much…



    …of things we want to remember.



    Except for failures in the clutch…



    …and irrelevance before December.



    Burma-Shave.

  • bloomie1937

    UnBEARable. Nothing can salvage the most storied franchise in the NFL short of new ownership. Trestman will not be fired.Virginia has never fired anyone she would have to continue to pay.We were stuck with Lovie for three extra years beyond when it became clear that he stunk. Now he’s assuring that the Bucs stink.I’ve been loyal since 1942. I’m done as long as the McCaskeys own this team.

    • CanadaBear

      C-Ya!

  • Gary

    The question should be: Will Jay Cutler be the Bears QB IN 2015?
