Season on the Line: Bears at Packers Thread

| November 9th, 2014

wallenda

Three final thoughts heading into tonight’s game:

  • Martellus Bennett not playing tonight would be a huge blow to the Bears. Packers had no answer for Bennett during their first meeting and to expect his level of production from Rosario or Annen would be misguided. If only the Bears had two big, talented wide receivers to cover that production…
  • Someone needs a great game in the pass rush. Anyone, really.
  • Barring this game getting away from the Bears early, I’d be shocked if they run the ball less than 25-30 times with Forte and Carey. Packers are the worst run defense in the sport and Cutler is most dynamic in the play action attack. Defense can’t let Rodgers score on every possession if this is to be their approach.

Bear down.

    Let’s turn the page tonight Bears. Give me a second half of the season to be interested in.

    The Rat. He’s going to be the difference on D.

    Martellus plays and kicks ass.

    Marc remembers that Jay is good at stuff. Stuff they having been doing much of.

    Marc remembers that Matt Forte can carry the ball 15 times on a drive, eat up 8 minutes per drive and the Packers can not stop him.

    Mel Tucker remembers Jordy Nelson is good and does something different.

    Bears win.

  • Big John from Tucson

    BEAR DOWN!!!
    Beat The Cheese!

  • Trac

    Net net? No matter what happens, just win baby!

  • Trac

    It’s war tonight. Can we at least knock Rogers out for the rest of the season? Remember Martin’s hit on Jimmy Mac? It’s payback time.

  • CanadaBear

    The only way we win is if we beat up Rodgers all game. Having Briggs and Bostic back has to help the D. Hopefully it will embolden Tucker to bring the house early and often. What’s the difference if they score on 1 play vs 8 plays? If we rattle Rodgers we have a chance. Slim chance, but a chance.

    • johnnywad

      Hard to imagine Briggs giving enough of a shit to play well given his recent remarks

      • CanadaBear

        I know I’m in the minority here but I think people are reading too much into it. Other than last year when he came back way out of shape, Briggs has always brought it on game day. I don’t understand Bears fans. For some reason they like to diss their greatest stars at the end of their time with the Bears. See #54, Devin and now Lance. These guys brought it when they were on the field but said some stupid stuff towards the end. Didn’t change what great players they were with the Bears.

        • johnnywad

          I hope you’re right. The Bears sure need him to play well

  • Viva

    Punts
    Bears 3
    Pack 4

    Score
    Bears 31
    Pack 30

    Bottom Line:
    FUCK THE PACK

    • Robban_HH

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA………55 BURGER DOWN THAT

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    “If Adrian Peterson is reinstated to play next week it means he will have received a ZERO game suspension. Think about that.”

    Nonsense. He sat out eight games. You think he sat voluntarily?

    • johnnywad

      You seem to be in the camp of “The system has spoken. He is free to go. He should be free to go back to work.” And while I tend to agree that, legally, he may resume carrying the football for the Vikings, there is no way in hell, I would let that animal back on the field, were it my team. There is nothing worse on this earth, than a child abuser. If you don’t think what he did was child abuse, you’re wrong. Fuck AP, and any other asshole that beats a four year old with a stick til he bleeds. I don’t want to see that piece of shit ever again.

      • CanadaBear

        I get your disgust and anger. I lost a ton of respect for AP. However, his case is settled and he should be allowed to go back to work. Other than the fans of the team he is playing on, AP is going to hear it long and loud from the opponents fans. This will carry on until he retires. He will no longer get any endorsement money and make any paid appearances. I know that is hardly justice but you have to remember that according to a survey about AP’s discipline, greater than 50% of those polled in the South saw nothing wrong with it. I know this makes you sick (me too) but that’s life in a different part of the country.

        • johnnywad

          I get all that. I still just can’t believe people can look at the guy and think “hey, he served his time, did his penance, etc., etc., etc.”. He took a stick, and hit a 40lb kid in the balls. He hit him in his back and his legs so hard that it cut him with a round stick. And the mother fucker has been paid millions of dollars to sit at home as his “punishment”. I will never comprehend how anyone can feel that this piece of shit deserves to go on with his luxuriant life, with the worst of it being he “hears it” from opposing fans. Its wrong.

      • i think he’s in the camp of, “what do you mean he received a zero game suspension? he has missed the first 8 games of the season. doesn’t that count as a suspension?”

        he said nothing about the actual act or his being free to play football again. he was just questioning the whole idea of the zero game suspension when he’s sat half the season.

        • johnnywad

          That’s not quite the whole story E. BB has posted on the topic before. I’m sure he’ll correct me, if I’ve got his stance wrong.

          Further, AP has been paid for the first half of the season. So no, he hasn’t been suspended. He’s been on paid vacation.

          • BerwynBomber

            I suspect the league will fine him a sum that will equal the eight games he missed.

          • like a $4-8M fine?
            That might be unconstitutional lol

          • ah. if there’ve been other posts i haven’t been on top of those. apologies, my good man.

      • BerwynBomber

        Oh please. These are football players, many of whom are flawed individuals who have done horrible off-field things. Hell, they are our modern-day gladiators. Let the law deal with them. Let’s not try to play God ourselves. That’s what got Goodell in trouble in the first place.

        Btw, how do you feel about Brandon Marshall?

        • johnnywad

          What did Marshall do exactly?

          • BerwynBomber

            Really?

            So you want to play selective armchair moralist?

          • johnnywad

            No. I know he’s not a good guy. I don’t know exactly what happened with his ex girlfriend because there seem to be two very different conflicting versions of what happened. I’m sure it wasn’t pretty. I’m also sure he’s doing everything he can to make amends on a public level. Further, I know he didn’t beat a child. If he did, then fuck him too.

            You don’t see a distinct difference between the pride AP shows in the “whooping” he gave his kid, and the very concerted effort Marshall is making by publically discussing his problem?

            I’m trying to play God. I didn’t condemn him to hell. I don’t want him in the NFL.

          • BerwynBomber

            AP hasn’t spoken yet. For all I know he will show more contrition than Marshall and become a spokesman for child protective services. Reformation is possible for many people. Not just our Chicago Bears.

            My thing is the law has dealt with him. Let him return to work. I honestly find your “he can never work again in his chosen profession” stance rather chilling. He’s a free man.

            Btw, Marshall’s rap sheet is as long as your arm. Just punch his name on Wikipedia and scroll down to “Legal Troubles”.

          • johnnywad

            I don’t give a shit what most people do. I really don’t. There isn’t much that bothers me. In nearly every imaginable scenario, I would be in lockstep with you. I just have no tolerance for people that hurt kids. Its even worse that its his own kid. If you beat the shit out of a kid, you shouldn’t get to go right back to being rich and famous and comfortable once your lawyers have sorted shit out. This fucker should be doing time. He should be getting his balls hit with a switch. He should be sad, hungry and destitute. Zero tolerance from me. But then, I’m not in charge.

          • Cormonster

            I would be surprised if AP plays for the Vikings again. The typical Vikings fan was disgusted with his actions. If the Vikings put him back on the roster this year, it will be a PR nightmare for them.

          • I don’t know…reading comments around the interwebs, a lot of Vike fans are calling to “Free AP”. Maybe they’re just trolls, but it’s def going to test the NFL.

  • Watching around the league, it’s painfully obvious that we lack heart and physicality .
    Even teams like the Bucs and Jets are showing fight.
    Hope the Bears show up with some pride.
    That Bills/Chiefs game is like shadaw-boxing.

    • Cormonster

      More than anything tonight I just want to see the Bears play hard, physical football. Side note: Borland had 18 tackles today and 2 passes defensed. Like Woody said, he’s probably best suited for a 3-4 defense, but the Bears could sure use a player like him. When Borland and Watt were playing together at Wisconsin they just destroyed opposing offenses.

      • The two late rd LBs I had my eye on during the draft was Borland and Christian Jones.
        I’m glad we at least got Jones, but Borland is looking beastly.
        For some reason, white LBs with a shit load of tackles, years as a starter, and captain material always get short-changed in the draft, coined as “two-down linebackers.”
        I never understood that. What’s wrong with taking the best FB player?
        Like I said before – sometimes scouts just prefer the athlete instead of the player.

      • Donnnnn’t Caaaaarrrrrre!

        I liked what i saw from Borland today.

  • Trac

    Steelers are playing like the Bears today.

  • Trac

    Orton and bills driving for win.

  • SC Dave

    Wonder if the Jets will figure out how to lose this game. Unreal.

    Vick is as stupid as ever

  • Trac

    Well well well. Browns in first place all by themselves.

  • Raiders putting up a fight.
    Might be underdog Sunday today

  • DocNitty(BallsStillOrnamental)

    Bear the fuck down, boys.

  • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

    what a game Rams vs. Arizona,, I hope Cutler looks Palmer´s presence

  • Donnnnn’t Caaaaarrrrrre!

    and that ladies and gentlemen is why the “fumble argument” is so infuriating.

  • Donnnnn’t Caaaaarrrrrre!

    Seattle proving my point. Winning by 2 TD’s despite 2INT’s and a brutal fumble by Wilson that somehow didn’t get recovered by the Giants as it laid right in the guys hands and no one recovered it for 10 seconds.

    • Cormonster

      Wilson has like 8 fumbles this year, and the Seahawks have recovered every one of them.

      • Donnnnn’t Caaaaarrrrrre!

        football is way too complex to try to break down to simple stats. Rodgers is fucking dead is the only stat that i care about right now.

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        Wilson is a different kind of human. He has reptile blood running through his veins.

  • wreckinball

    Time to Bear down WTF any given Sunday

  • wreckinball

    Holy shit Hawks up 3 0 maybe it’s karma

  • Jay Cutler…depressed Jason Priestly.
    That was pretty funny.

  • Donnnnn’t Caaaaarrrrrre!

    Time to fucking shock the world.

  • I was about to write, “On the plus side, all the pressure is on GB”, then I realized, that’s not the case.
    If the Pack lose, they’re still in the WC hunt.
    If the Bears lose, they may be in the HC hunt.

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    LB Jamaro Lattimore isn’t playing for the packers. That’s positive because he’s their best cover LB.

  • huntinbare

    HOLY SNIKEEEES….I head up to the high country to get away from the crowd for 4 weeks; come out of the woods and the bus is teetering on the edge of the abyss. It was so peaceful doing time in the yurt not knowing the fate of the Bears; but when the phone service finally kicked in and i pulled up the bad news; the shock and stress of unfulfilled dreams hit me like a frieght train. I read some on the sight and gained some understanding as to the hows and whys. Now it is Packer time.
    The temple incense is filling the room and the pregame ritual is in full swing. Tonight I am petitioning the laws of the universe to even the score on our karmic ledger with the pack. May the balls and breaks be in our favor for 4 qtrs…. may our tackles be filled with the sting of the bee..may the Bears prevail by 10.
    Luck be a lady tonight….as we count coup on the green cheese tribe tonight.

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    The most depressing thing about tonight’s game is that I wouldn’t be surprised at all if they beat the packers.
    That’s fucked up.
    When I think at personnel, Xs and Os, logic… all this tells me the Bears win, but I have little confidence in all of them, so I’m like ‘whatever’.

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    Philosophical question: if the Bears play zones and bring the same naive blitzes in obvious manner do I continue to watch the game or go to the hawks game ?

    I’m 10 times more interested in the Defensive game planing than the Offense, to tell you the truth.

  • wreckinball

    Jets beat Steelers who d a thunk it it can happen

  • GPLDAN

    Zac Bowman on the Giants, comes up to tackle Beast Mode… and…

    just does a Giant Size pussy stance and let’s him run in for the TD.

    Zac Bowman – today’s giant pussy.

  • Scott W.

    Is it possible for NBC’s Football Night in America to be more annoying?

  • It’s time for the Bears to make me change my handle.
    I hate having it this season, but if the stink fits…

  • I wish Harrison would’ve called The Bears “soft” again.
    Give them some bulletin material.

  • Shady

    Lance Briggs has an interesting haircut. Not sure if I’ve ever seen the back strap before.

  • Shady

    Apparently the Bears did not discuss kickoff returns during the bye. Why?

  • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

    here we go, first penalty ST

  • Hey, Diabetus Cutler!

  • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

    first catch of morgan in a while!!!

  • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

    I have a bad feeling with Mill´s foot…

  • That punt was so bad it was good.

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    first snap of the game = first proof coaching is optional for da Bears.

    • Scott W.

      Who hired the coach, Barb? I forget…

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        Well the one before was the same, so dig deeper.

        • Scott W.

          I don’t have to dig another 1/2 inch.

  • RenoBear

    Sigh…wr screen on 3rd and 16

    • bend-over play calling.
      Maybe throw an 80 yard bomb. If it gets INT, it’s like a punt

      • underway

        trest is gonna coach to NOT LOSE this game, instead of call it to win… we know how that has the potential to end.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Sigh. How many plays ’til the Bears trail?

  • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

    it seems nobody wants to miss cobb´s catch.

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    How the shit was that NOT a hold????

  • They’re going to attack the LBs over the middle.
    I would.
    Don’t know how D.J. is still starting over Sharpton.

    • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

      it´s supposed that he is injured

      • Well, then I guess I could understand.
        God knows I don’t want Bostic back there trying to defend Rodger passes.

        • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

          the problem has been no rush, till now it still is

  • Shady

    Fack.

  • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

    wrong Bostic…

  • underway

    I HATE HOW DISRESPECTFUL THEY R TOWARDS US, FUCK U GB

    • BearDown100393

      Respect is earned.

      • underway

        agreed. they make the shit so obvious. Normal team, they kick and get 3.

        • BearDown100393

          Agreed.

        • Scott W.

          We’d do the same if we could, and we’d love it. Would be more disrespectful to play us soft.

    • Robban_HH

      Are you proud of your team??? You dont respect yourself, why should anyone else….55 BURGER

  • FantuzPhysics

    Chicken Dinner…dammit

  • AlbertInTucson

    12 plays. More than I thought it would take.

  • Bears sleep walking again.

  • No pass rush. No aggressive blitzes. No exotic zones.
    = more of the same.

    • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

      = long night..

  • wreckinball

    GB is so fucking arrogant fuck them

    • Robban_HH

      In what way? The same way Quitler and Tears are to you?

  • wreckinball

    Ok Jay move the fucking ball GB D sucks

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    The Bears are pathetic. They opened up in base, playing zone and without blitzing not even once.

    My head hurts. These fuckers are for real ? They think they’re going to con their way into another year of coaching the Bears with lame shit like this ?

    PS: The fuckers are going to simplify things, heard that !!! Hahhahahhahahah.

  • RenoBear

    I hate that smug douche Rodgers. And gosh damn we get zero respect from the Pack lol

    • BearDown100393

      Still preferable over indifference and comatose.

    • Robban_HH

      You earn respect. Do you respect your team, i wouldnt after shit games like this. Blowing a cover 2 we learn in High School…Mundi whatever his name is blew that assignment twice…..that is for having 6 days off in the bye week and not practising coming from the, then worst loss in the history of your team and now last night even worse.

      • RenoBear

        Oh I know. If I were the Packers I’d have been playing/acting/coaching the same way. They have the Bears number (well every team does these days) and they know it… Oh well. The Beloved is a complete train wreck right now… I’m not too worried about it. Kinda funny that you packer fans have to troll along Bears blogs…seriously sad.

        • Robban_HH

          Dont want to Troll, I am pissed of at you Bear fans. If this ever happened to my team we would be blocking the training facility until change was made. What do you do? I am robbed of good rivalry..trolling so be it

          • RenoBear

            Ha!! I like that.. Unfortunately we have the least proactive management and ownership in the NFL. It’s tough being a Bears fan. Yet another season down the tubes… With no change in sight… Smh

  • Donnnnn’t Caaaaarrrrrre!

    why don’t we jam their Wr’s and TE’s? It was the 2yd line. Shea simply has to get in the guys way for a second, can’t even do that.

  • Shady

    smh

  • FantuzPhysics

    Jay. No. Not another one

  • In ten meetings with Packers DC Dom Capers’ defense since
    becoming a Bear, Jay Cutler has combined to complete 164-of-295 throws
    (55.6 percent) for 2,000 yards (6.78 YPA) with 12 touchdowns and 20
    interceptions.

    Although the numbers have improved slightly since Marc
    Trestman took over as Bears coach, it’s an alarming trend in such a big
    sample size, and particularly worrisome as Cutler heads to Lambeau for a
    road game with weather concerns. Bears-Packers has a lofty 53.5-point
    over-under — so perhaps a shootout is in store

  • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

    I´m about to change to a movie…

  • underway

    run the ball. run the ball. run the ball. HEY run the ball.. save Jay from himself… DAMNIT.

        good joke. trestman doesn´t play QB

      It was tipped.

      • wreckinball

          Peppers tipped it, and took the steam off of it, wreckin. They even showed it in the 2 replays.

    • Scott W.

      Yep. We could still win this.

  • BearDown100393

    If a loss is inevitable tonight, is it better long term for the franchise to be completely blown out?

    • Shazbat

      Best outcome is Jay breaks a leg.

  • wreckinball

    Ok Jay get your head together drive down and get 7

    • Jay tends to throw INTs in bunches.
      But I don’t see us running Forte, and now we’re behind, so I doubt that happens now.
      If we get blown out on national tv against our rivals, that might be enough for the McCaskey’s to do something.

        after the season maybe

      • Scott W.

        Ya never know. Maybe they will trade Allen for Peppers….

    I think Trestman needs to go now

    • Yup. I’m not a fan of mid-season firings, but it needs to happen. Tucker and DeCamillias can go too.

  • FantuzPhysics

    How many draft picks do we have?

  • GPLDAN

    Worst Bears team in my lifetime? I think so.

    Worse than those 70s Pardee teams? Collinsworth compared Trestman to those teams.

    • W. A. Delong

      I started following the Bears in the mid-1950’s. I’m an old guy. Never, ever have I seen a worse Bears team. The quarterback Cutler is just plain awful. The front offensive line is a very bad joke. The defense couldn’t stop most high school teams from scoring. Play calling is stale and predictable. The defense is unimaginative and clumsy — and lazy!!! All number of guys standing around looking at the play unfold and doing nothing.

      Whatever brought this nightmare to pass was the responsibility of whoever is at the very top and all the morons he had working on past drafts and quarterback contracts.

      • Scott W.

        1965 here. Yer right.

    • Scott W.

      Our defense was bruising back then.

  • wreckinball

    Mike singeltary is not employed really why isn’t he our DC

  • BearDown100393

    Rich Kotite loves Marc Trestman.

  • underway

    SO now because the game is out of hand already, we are going to be subjected to the we love AR video compilation…

    It’s official. We R a JOKE!!!!!

    I think it will be Matt Flynn time if we re lucky

    Uh… pride? Anyone?

    Ok Jay now surely against one of the worst Ds in the league you lol do something right LOL

  • GPLDAN

    This is what we got after a bye week, guys.

    • Trac

      But Green Bay has a demi-god playing QB. I mean GP, you ask too much.

  • shaznat

    I am going to force myself to watch this entire game. Am hoping Jay Cutler is run out of town. Defense sucks yes, but Cutler is the disease.

    • Disgusted

      Wait…. Cutler gave up 5 first half touchdowns?

  • guys. it’s cool. we can’t go 13-6 without losing 6 games.

  • Scott W.

    Chris Williams returns are our best offense tonight. Awesome!

    • Scott W.

      Technically, he’s gained over 10 yards every time he touched the ball, right?

  • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

    can´t belive it, in one month we don´t have a team, that game in SF seems a science fiction

  • AlbertInTucson

    The Bears prepared 2 weeks for THIS?

    • Scott W.

      Yes. Lots of grief counseling, etc.

  • AlbertInTucson

    A message needs to be sent. Mel Tucker should be fired. At halftime.

    • The Ghost of Super Bowl XX

      50% discount tickets at soldier field

    • Scott W.

      That’s a scapegoat move…not that I want to keep him. Better move would be to forfeit at halftime.

      • Cormonster

        Might as well. They quit with 5 minutes left the last game.

  • Jack Lacan

    Fourteen days of endless bullshit … Await the postgame “phases of the moon” tonight…

  • wreckinball

    What an awful coach

  • wreckinball

    To think we could have had Browns or chargers coach

    • NewBearInTown

      We could have had Arians, the Cardinals coach who has turned less talent into the #1 team in the NFC.

      • That is a kick in the Nads.
        Emery went outside the box. Sometimes the box is there for a reason.
        He rolled it, and it came out snake eyes.
        Time to fire Trestman and move on.

      • Scott W.

        I lost a bet to you last Spring. Is it too late to pay up, NBIT?

      • wreckinball

        Didn’t want cutler smart man

      • SC Dave

        You have no idea whether we could have had Arians or not. None.

  • Scott W.

    Nothing surprises us now. That’s good, right?

  • FantuzPhysics

        You’re right…

  • shaznat

    Jay can’t even complete a pass to the Packers.

  • Jack Lacan

    Jay Cutler should rake leaves in Lake Forest for free the rest of the season…

    • wreckinball

      He SUCKS

  • Scott W.

    Honestly, in all seriousness, I cannot remember, in 49 years, seeing a team this all-around incompetent. From Admin to the entire 53, nothing ever this bad. Ever.

    • tobijohn

      And our hopes before the season were as high as I can remember them being in ages…

      • Scott W.

        Yes. Exactly right you are. This is a free fall like nothing I’ve seen. And the shock is the expectations can’t fall fast enough to keep up.

        • tobijohn

          If this were a commodity futures contrct, I’d say the Bears are going to be locked limit down for a while…

          • Scott W.

            LMAO

  • I’m not sure if I ever actually seen a team quit like this. ANY team.
    I would argue even the Raiders would beat us. At least they were competitive vs the Broncos for a quarter and a half.

    • RenoBear

      I concur. We are even more frustrating than the raiders and jax because we have supposed ‘talent’ on offense and a couple big names on defense… And we have ZERO coaching and we lack heart. So fucking disappointing.

  • underway

    might as well dial up a blitz no?

  • wreckinball

    First bear home game 1967 worst ever

  • Jack Lacan

    Hawks win…

    • wreckinball

      Alright

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      Bickel came in big with a rare goal. Sweeet.

      Then Versteeg and Monin start 2 separate fights. I’m like “what a fuck is happening tonight?” All kinds of strange things.

  • FantuzPhysics

  • BearDown100393

    Northwestern could defeat this Bears team.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Even during the Gibron years I don’t remember the Bears being absolutely HUMILIATED like this in consecutive games.

    • GPLDAN

      thank you Al for some historical perspective

      • AlbertInTucson

        Well, this is an historically bad night.

  • wreckinball

    Trestman done tomorrow

  • AlbertInTucson

    In case you haven’t noticed, Bears, they are laughing at you.

  • RenoBear

    Wait I said we are lacking some heart…. I was wrong. We have NO heart at all. Fuck this team in its current configuration. What an absolute fucking joke.

  • Jack Lacan

    Any eleven girls from Queen of Peace – the Carmelite nuns – any eleven could beat this Bears team…

    There are eleven jamokes in your local park than can beat these guys…

    This is beyond coaching, These players don’t have enough self-respect to not shit the bed?

    Though I am mystified at why Tucker isn’t calling any blitzes.

  • underway

    i cannot stop laughing… “That one looked like AR” collinworths has a mouth full of AR swimmers…

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    I loved an image tonight in the 10 minutes of Bears I watched. Trestman with a huuuge play calling sheet and Tucker with like a little piece of white paper.

    They’re losing 62-o or something like that.

    I thought that was funny.

  • shaznat

    Best comment ever by Collinswort: “we going to flex out of the 2nd half?”

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      Collinswort is a the best I’ve ever heard in all sports I’ve watched.

      • Disgusted

        Collins worth is atrocious. He is the Mel Tucker of color guys. Every once in a while he makes you think he is competent, but he is really, truly bad.

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        i hope you are being sarcastic else you really need to watch more sports.

        • Barb UMihai Mar

  • johnnywad

    No coach survives this. No way. He may not be fired this week. But there is no fucking way he’s coaching next year.

    • RenoBear

      He HAS to go… I’ve supported him for as long as I could…. He has truly turned this team into pussies with zero heart and direction

      • johnnywad

        Clean the whole fucking thing out. All the coaches. Trade whomever you like. Start over.

        • W. A. Delong

          Either Phil Emery or make him play middle linebacker until he expires of shame. Green Bay players along the bench are LAUGHING at the Bears!

    • Scott W.

      If he had an ounce of pride, he’d resign in the morning, and Phil Emery would hand the keys to his office to Kevin Costner, who can at least PRETEND to be a GM.

  • RenoBear

    Here’s a shocker Trestman, the end around barely ever works once in an NFL game. You can’t do it twice in the same fucking quarter. Asshole. The ENTIRE packer team is laughing at us… Oh my fucking gosh…. Fuck this

  • wreckinball

    42 0 at half guaranteed

    • GPLDAN

      Rodgers has 42 FF points already.

  • tobijohn

    Both teams need to play their backup QBs in the second half..

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    People ask why they don’t blitz on D and why they don’t run the ball.

    Because they don’t know how that’s why.

  • wreckinball

    Cutler is horrible

  • Jack Lacan

    Switch jerseys at half….
    We get Rodgers second half…
    Packers must use all morons with foam cheese hats second half and Rodgers uses other arm…

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    People asking for Trestman’s head… are you insane ?

    This meltdown actually works well for the Bears. High position in next year’s draft. Maybe draft a young QB.

    • johnnywad

      Yeah. That should do it

  • underway

    Tim Jennings is lookin horrible.

    OMG. Cutler should not be allowed to play the game ever again. Clearly is permanently concussed.

  • Trac

    Just as I suspected. Green Bay doesn’t have a heart. This is brutal.

  • Fuller’s getting into it with everyone.
    When you’re rookie CB cares more than everyone else, there’s a problem.

  • Trac

    And how was Ron turner worse that trestman?

  • RenoBear

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…. Omg let’s make it a 84-7 loss tonight. It’ll shake things up at least. Emery will have no choice

    • Scott W.

      Fuck Phil Emery.

  • tobijohn

    Seriously, both teams have no business risking injury to their top players in the second half of the game (not that the Bears have anyone playing like a top player)…

    • underway

      EVERY starter would play every snap of the 2nd half…. For us.

    • Trac

      Never thought I’d see the day the Bears became quitters. Smh

      • Scott W.

        Did they ever start?

  • Shouldn’t Cutler be studying photos, or talking with Trestman or something – instead, of you know, sitting there biting his nails?

    • Jack Lacan

      Not a bad time for a manicure….

    • Scott W.

      Laughing like hell here. ..oh the imagery.

  • RenoBear

    Oh and fuck the whole Packers are so ‘home grown’ dialogue.. Eat a dick Collinsworth and Michaels… Oh wait you already are eating a dick.. It’s attached to Rodgers

    • They’re going to get home-growned booted from the playoffs again (if they even make it).
      Their team is bad. It just so happens that we’re worse.

      • CanadaBear

        Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse.

      • RenoBear

        Bingo. They have a terrible professional team. Ours just happens to not even be a professional level team

        • stats3599

          Terrible???…is that your hate for them that allows you to make such a ridiculous statement?….6-3 and moving forward and 3-6 and laying down, and they Have a terrible Professional team??…keep drinking you delusional drunk….its comical to read your crap every week…..yeah the team up North is terrible because they have an elite QB and what do fans down here in Chicago have?? Their D was way beter tonight and the score shows that and they are terrible??? Too bad the Bears arent that Terrible!

          • RenoBear

            Who the Hell are you? “keep drinking you delusional drunk….its comical to read your crap every week…..” no need for personal attacks there buddy. Yeah I’m frustrated watching a supposed “talented” team lay down every week, especially against our rivals. But guess what captain? The Packers ARE an average team with an outstanding QB who completely owns us. The Packers did play well last night… But it wouldn’t surprise me to see a SEC team beat us right now. If the Packers make the playoffs they will not go far AT ALL. They are a very flawed team, but at least they have a great QB and an actual direction that they want to go as a team. The Bears just don’t…and it sucks badly. So if you are so annoyed by my comical, drunken comments as you troll along on Sunday nights, please move along

          • stats3599

            Make up your mind, is it Terrible or Average?? Troll huh, how many times you seen me comment on here? im here every game and how many times have you ever noticed a comment from me? I understand your frustration. I do. I have seen and covered more NFL games than you have commented on this Blog. I sat in the Press Box Sunday night and not one positive word came from any writer up there about this mediocre bears team. It was so bad, a Milwaukee writer joked how we could at least write about the Bears winning the second half 14-13. It was laughable. the point I was making wasnt a personal attack, it was to say get real, the Bears just got their asses kicked and that team that did the ass kicking was terrible? saw you wrote “As I cry into my beer. Not a violent anger or sadness, just a general resignation of another wasted season…..” later, so delusional drunk was the only reasonable excuse for your comment…GB has a great offense, when you do, in no way can that be considered in todays game Terrible! PERIOD!

          • RenoBear

            And you did see the rest of the post right? That I was being facetious? I love football, I love the bears, but they do not affect my being. It is pretty sad how this team has spiraled out of control. And yes, the packers are on cruise control on offense, and it is irritating as all get out. It’s like the Bears are run by people who are afraid to make change and are fine with the ‘status quo’ . Oh well, I still look forward to seeing how this plays out the rest of the seadon

          • stats3599

            Organizational wise, the Packers are way ahead of the Bears and its not even close From Owners ( Packers Community) to GM to Coach and in some cases but not all, talent. You can’t and won’t compete in a so call “Rivalry”if you’re constantly inferior on many levels. This is just my opinion but an observed one at that. The North will come down to GB and Det. and both may get in. Right now both would be. How they fair from there is anyones guess but just a guess. On Any given Sunday!

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    It this shit doesn’t spark Emery’s reaction nothing will. Not against Trestman or whatever, but against his style of managing the club.

    He has to become the bad guy. He should have cut/traded Briggs last week as a starting point.

    He has to move shit around with force and precision. His friendly, trusting vision isn’t working and it never will. I believe the ‘stick and the carrot method’ is the oldest in the book and that’s because it works. Emery can’t truly believe he can invent stuff and disregard proven methods.

  • Jack Lacan

    This thread belongs on SNL…

  • RenoBear

    Man id love to have Arians.. Saw his post game presser and I think he’s great. Guess Emery and the mccaskeys didn’t like it tjoigh

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      You can’t fire Lovie and hire Arians. That’s blatantly racist.

  • johnnywad

    When the Bears hire their next coach, I want them to call me. I want to help them. They need to look for a guy that can walk into a casino and leave with house money. He needs to be able to think, adjust, scheme. He needs to know how to street fight. He needs to understand his opponent in game, the way Bears opponents seem to know what they’re about to do. Trestman is just too academic. I thought it last year, but was hoping I was wrong.

  • Have paper-bags over face ever been spotted at Soldier Field?

  • Wonder what Bmarsh is writing in his journal?

  • wreckinball

    We are the aints

  • Jack Lacan

    Trestman gave Michele Tafoya some absolutely brilliant comments…

  • tomburg

    Since this owner’s group is not one to make hasty decisions, Ill root for more than garden variety losses the rest of the way. This shit has to change.

    The satellite intelligentsia of the Bears – all the so called beat bloggers and journalists – have to call into account this season’s effort.

    Jeff, you pick the Bears every week. Stop it.

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      Stop watching the games, don’t go to the games.

    Why play Cutler this half? At least let Clausen play and see what he can do.

    • tobijohn

      That’s what I say…

    • underway

      The only name at QB that should be associated with this crap is Cutler.

      fuck him. He’s getting paid, he should pay. At least keep the packer fans entertained.

  • huntinbare

    I set up the floodlights at halftime…should i use a 7 or 8 inch reveal on the cedar shingles when re-roofing the shed?

    • tobijohn

      seven…

      • huntinbare

        Thanks for your expertise… I will go with the 7…speaking of 7 will we get 7 tonight or should we go for 2 and take the 8

    • johnnywad

      If they’re 16″ shingles, its a 7″ reveal. Blind nailed or stapled an inch above the waterline

    • Scott W.

      I’d go with the 7 inch. The cedar is a subtle beauty.

      • johnnywad

        With white trim.

    • Jack Lacan

      Cedar is pricey…

      • Jack Lacan

        LOLOLOL

      • huntinbare

  • Scott W.

    Even Forte has lost interest. He just texted me from the cell he keeps under his shoulder pads. He says the 7″ reveal is definitely the way to go.

  • This night will be worth it if we can hurt Rodger’s vag.

    • johnnywad

      The fact that he’s still in the game, allows for a catastrophic injury. If it happens, that’s a fireable offense

  • Trac

    In all seriousness, how can this coaching staff possibly gain credibility again this decade?

    • Jack Lacan

      decade???

    • johnnywad

      They can’t. This experiment is over Trac. Marc will be calling his Realtor tomorrow. He’ll be all settled back in Canada by Valentines day.

  • wreckinball

    I wonder if that concept has sunk in yet.

      • johnnywad

      Make them walk..it is obvious that there is no need to hurry back… Why practice it does not seem to make a difference if we do or don’t

  • underway

    Now they are talkin about Lombardi time…. geezus. I guess they gotta fill the void left by the lack of
    competitive football…

      Revisionist time … Green Bay is known for existential philosophy….

  • You know, the Packers actually did us a favor.
    This is the final straw to the Trestman era. It’s better to find out now, rip it off like a band-aid.

      No way he survives this. He has to know right now.

    Yay!!!!

  • Well, Marshall has some pride.

    Boys, I think the momentum might finally be changing…

    Yeah, baby…Momentum has switched…

  • wreckinball

    Yeah

  • Jack Lacan

    Someone should take roll of this thread at games end…

  • I think all of us on this thread deserve a “We watched the entire Bears@Pack ’14” T-shirt. I feel like Jeff should commemorate the debacle, and reward us for sticking it out.

      With matching socks.

    • Jack Lacan

      FOR SURE….

      Do I get credit for watching this long? I’m off to bed in a few minutes…

        DO NOT QUIT NOW…

      • johnnywad

        Partial credit, yes. You get a belly shirt.

    • Scott W.

      Man, it’s all part of the hell, WP. Wish Kornheiser and Ray Lewis would join ’em.

  • Jack Lacan

    Have another donut McCarthy…

  • johnnywad

    Trestman is a fucking asshole for continuing to leave Matt Forte in this game.

    • Scott W.

      He probably doesn’t know he’s playing.

  • johnnywad

    Pat O’Donnell. Weapon.

  • DaMurph

    They don’t need an answer for Martellus, he just keeps dropping very catchable balls.

  • shaznat

    Would the packers please hurt jay cutler already?

  • johnnywad

    Marshall is playing very hard. Noticeably harder than of late.

    • I never questioned his desire. Even when he was on those shitty MIA teams with Hene and other bums throwing to him, he was still good for 90 catches, 1,000 yds.
      This year he might hit his lowest stats ever.
      He was inj early, but still, very disappointing year for him and Alshon.

  • Jack Lacan

    What a fucking joke Fire everyone

  • NewBearInTown

    1) I prefer the 8″ reveal on the ceder. I personally find more lighting is usually better if you’re unsure. I also think talking about flood lights at the moment reminds me of the mound scene in Bull Durham.

    2) Is Bill W still a Doug Plank fan? Then yes, I definitely want you to pay up on that bet.

    3) I have not shaved or trimmed my beard in over 10 years. I do trim my mustache about once a month though to allow a cleaner eating experience.

    Also the Bears are terrible.

    • johnnywad

      You must have a fantastic beard.

      • NewBearInTown

        I believe someone who came to the draft party a few years back called it “biblical.” Can’t remember what year it was off hand, but we drafted Shea.

        • MikeBrownhadaPosse

          Yes, and I may have been inebriated.

          • Cormonster

            That story is great. Wish I was there. How is Illinois basketball looking this year? Wisconsin looks good, but it’s really hard to make the Final Four in back to back years. I will be interested to see if Bo Ryan will make Traevon Jackson a sixth man as a senior and start the best talent on the team. He seems to be too loyal to upper classmen instead of playing more minutes with his best players. He’s a great coach, but at times I think he is too stubborn and loyal to veterans.

            At least I still have college football and basketball to look forward to. Bears are done.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            Illinois will be total mystery this year with Tracy Abrams out for the season. Even more than last year, they will be what the transfers make them. It’s always fun though, particularly after this bears season.

    • Scott W.

      I’ll cough it up NB. Thanks for the slack. What’s the vig?

    Brandon Marshall injured in garbage time. Unacceptable.

  • Great. Now Bmarsh is down.
    Good job, Trestman. Must own him in FF.

  • johnnywad

    Marshall isn’t walking that one off

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    Great, Marshall gets his ankle rolled. Sit him until next year. Dave the mileage.

    • johnnywad

      That looked bad. He might not have a chance to come back this year.

  • BearDown100393

    “Brandon has an ankle. I am disappointed for him.” – Marc Trestman in about 15 minutes.

    • GPLDAN

      “I feel like we haven’t played our best football.”

        Yes – Mark – where did it all go “off the rails”?

      • MikeBrownhadaPosse

        “We will look at the tape and find things we need to work on. Mel Tucker has a brain. I feel bad for Mel Tuckers brain. We will talk to the trainers and medical staff and see how he’s feeling tomorrow. “

          Goddamit this stuff gets funnier and funnier…thanks so much for making this a pleasant weekend after all…

    • “We had a pretty good run there in the 3rd quarter”

      • Jack Lacan

        Well said and very funny indeed…

      • GPLDAN

        “There are a lot of things to build on.”

        • “Marshall had a fantastic game, really. He’s just the superest.”

          • Jack Lacan

            Well we definitely did perform all six hundred phases of the game tonight…

  • NewBearInTown

    This is the kind of season where I focus on the league at large more than the Bears specifically. I don’t know what Emery is a believer in mid-season coach firings. I’m not sure I am either frankly. If we’re terrible, let us be terrible for the whole season.

    We’ll have an easier schedule next year and better draft position. Unless, of course, keeping this group together longer will cement a certain bad attitude in the locker room – in that case I do think there is merit to benching someone important and firing Trestman.

    Those young linebackers showed a lot of promise. Sit the starters down and give those guys some reps.

    And we have a ton of guys who would like to be given a chance to catch passes on offense. I don’t think any of them is any good. But they can’t prove me wrong till they see the field.

    Someone does need to sit Cutler down though. Marshall shouldn’t be yelling at the locker room after the game – Cutler should beat him to it.

    • “Unless, of course, keeping this group together longer will cement a certain bad attitude in the locker room” – this might be the case, esp with Briggs.
      We can stink without Trestman for draft position.
      We’ve been calling them to start other LBs. They simply refuse to modify their roster.
      Cutler SHOULD be the leader, but he’s not. And I don’t care what anyone says, or “different type of leaders” crap. He’s not a leader. If he WERE a leader, no one would be questioning the Bears about leadership.

  • RenoBear

    And there goes BMarsh…. Fuck man

  • johnnywad

    Matt Forte should not be playing. That said, the season is effectively over, so I guess, who cares?

  • Shady

    For fucks sake.

      Because why not.

      • RenoBear

        Yes

        • MikeBrownhadaPosse

          I figure, head tip almost as good as butt fumble.

  • RenoBear

    Son of a bitch

  • Jack Lacan

    Still plenty of time for a blocked field goal and a safety…

    • johnnywad

      And a return. Holy shit

  • wreckinball

    No way Trestman should be coach tomorrow

  • Shady

    Bwahahahaha

  • FantuzPhysics

    Good for you Chris Williams

    • underway

      the odds were in his favor… run back 7 u are bound to take one to the house….

    • johnnywad

      He’s the fastest, smallest, ex Bears Tackle then Guard, turned return man EVER!!!!

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    Most pointless kick off return for a TD in league history. Go us!

    • RenoBear

      Yep never seen any kick return so non-momentum changing in my 39 years. Ah well law of averages has to balance out… Kinda the same way I would hope Cutler’s record against GB averages by at least a few games in the next two years… Cuz that’s his max time left I’m thinking. Unless the unthinkable hsppens

  • RenoBear

    BAHAHAHAHAHA …. Seriously?

  • Maybe this will finally make teams kick it out of the endzone and save us future grief.

  • Jack Lacan

    NOW the momentum has definitely shifted to us…

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Or shitted on.

    • Jack Lacan

      Yes, I think “shitted to us” or “shat upon us” is quite apropos…

  • I think that run back barely pulled the Bears’ D/Sp from negative in FF.
    And I reward 12 points for run backs.

  • shaznat

    Can mcCasky fire the entire team? Maybe keep trestman and hire some Canadian players.

  • Things I never thought I would hear tonight:
    “That was almost Hester-esque”.

    • Jack Lacan

      My god someone did say that…didn’t they?

      • johnnywad

        “Shades of Devin Hester” he said.

        • MikeBrownhadaPosse

          What a der dee dur dee dur comment. Must’ve been Collinsworth.

          • johnnywad

            I don’t even remember. Chris Williams couldn’t even shampoo Devin’s balls.

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Hahahaha, was it ironic? I turned my listening ears off.

    • RenoBear

      Better than Collinsworth saying cutler has a little Rodgers in him on three different occasions… Talk about a backhanded compliment hahaha…. It’s like Cutler’s a schoolkid

  • There’s still 8 MINS left! ?
    Holy shite.

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Amazing what scoring on every third pass will do to extend the game. Yawn.

  • Shady

    I’m tapping out.

    • johnnywad

      Tell MB I says “Sup?”

    • Dude. C’mon. It’s like witnessing the Titanic.
      In 40 years in your hover-rocker chair, you can say, “I watched that game, sonny, so don’t complain to me about your space diarrhea”

  • johnnywad

    That last shot of Trestman looked like a grown man dressed as a Bears coach for Halloween

  • Jack Lacan

    Will Cutler take a stick and draw a play in the turf?

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    Hey, it’s like watching the fourth pre-season game all over again. Thanks, Trestman!

  • Jack Lacan

    Once again – let me thank all of you for much laughter tonight…

    • I can’t even be mad. They’re clown shoes.
      I knew it since the first GB beat down. I re-signed myself then, so I’m not getting my blood pressure up for these chumps.

    • Scott W.

      Tip o the hat Jack.

  • Jack Lacan

    Is it possible to have six minutes of knees???

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Please?

  • johnnywad

    Two months of meaningless football, followed by two months of a coaching search, followed by months of analyzing every little bullshit thing until September of next year before we get another meaningful game

    • I don’t even want to think about that.
      On the bright side, it’ll be fun seeing what new HC we could get. Hopefully, a good crop pops up.

      • johnnywad

        Well, you look at what Arians and Caldwell are doing, and you wonder, what are the odds? How many coaching hires work out right away? Not many.

        • BerwynBomber

          I’m surprised by Caldwell but take it as much an indictment on how poor Shorts was as a testament to Caldwell’s abilities. Probably a 50/50 split.

          • johnnywad

            They’re winning close games they’ve always lost even predating Schwartz. Culture change and leadership. And apparently better football acumen.

          • BerwynBomber

            Yep, they have an adult in charge compared to Shorts. Big difference in that alone.

          • NewBearInTown

            A lot of talent on that roster. A lot of talent on this one too. Almost gives one hope…

          • CanadaBear

            They are having the miracle season like we did when we went 13-3 under Jauron.

  • NewBearInTown

    Wow. Sacked on 4th and 4. We can’t even score in garbage time.

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Not fair! We TOTALLY scored one td in garbage time.

      • NewBearInTown

        The offense didn’t…

        • MikeBrownhadaPosse

          It’s been garbage time for three quarters. That Marshall one counts!

      • Jack Lacan

        Hasn’t this entire evening been garbage time?

  • I WANT GB to score 60.
    I want as much insurance as possible that someone needs to get fired.

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    Why are they giving free back rubs to Briggs? We KNOW he doesn’t give a shit.

  • You know you’re in trouble when the broadcasters are waxing nostalgic about your predecessors.
    And after this night, I might even miss Lovie too.

  • WP4Life

    I wasn’t a Lovie fan but at least we played tough football. This is just embarrassing.

  • NewBearInTown

    Packers wussed out. If they kept going, they could have easily broken the record for highest score in a game in history. 66 points only gets you 3rd place.

    • Rodgers could have easily had the 8 TD single game record too after 6 in the 1st half.

  • Scott W.

    Just posting to make sure I get my t-shirt….and my socks.

    • NewBearInTown

      You never answered me. Are you still a doug plank fan?

      • Scott W.

        Thanks for outting me….what will I tell my parents?

        • NewBearInTown

          Parents. I figured you disappeared. Actually, at your age I figured you were either dead or too old to remember how to use the computer ;p

          • Scott W.

            I had a cardiac kind of Summer. But I’m better now. Thanks for thinking I was dead though!

            What was the bet in the first place? Something written if I recall correctly?

            Just kidding you about the whole premature death thing by the way. Hope the you’ve “bypassed” all your future cardiac woes.

  • Jack Lacan

    Me too…

  • shaznat

    When would we learn if any heads have rolled?

    • NewBearInTown

      Tomorrow I suspect. Its an away game. Emery would likely fire Trestman tomorrow morning first thing. Less common is to fire him on the flight back to town.
      If he’s staying, we’ll know by noon tomorrow. I suspect we’d see coordinator firings by later in the day Monday.

      • I HOPE Trestman, Tucker and DeCamillas are all gone.
        Make Kromer interim HC. Promote whomever on D and Specials, who is a hard-ass.
        Like I said, we don’t need Trestman, Tucker or DeCamel to stink for high draft position.

        If this game doesn’t get anyone fired, I don’t know what will.

        • Scott W.

          Yes.

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse
    • Scott W.

  • Viva

    We are the new Lions. Great on paper: shit on the field.

    • I concluded that after the 1st Packer game.
      Just find ways to lose with talent.

      • SC Dave

        Clearly, far less talent than everyone seems to believe.

    • Scott W.

      I think that might be more accurate than my contention that we were Andy Reid’s star-studded Eagles from a couple seasons back. In theory, loaded to win, in reality, just a lot of well paid egos, unsure of how to put together a game plan that works. And that’s Andy Reid we’re talking about.

    Pack:

    32 carries / 132 yards

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      I bet we crushed them in net punt yardage though.

    • Viva

      I got two words for you: we suck.

  • Viva

    Is this rock bottom?

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      If you can still ask, it’s probably not.

      • Viva

        Damn it.

  • Viva

    Fuck it.

    DAVE TOUB FOR HC.

  • That was the single worst coaching performance I have ever seen. Start to finish. I can’t even… what?

    • let’s see… first 4 drives were over 75% passing against a top 10 pass D and worst run D in NFL.
      -Defense did same shit that hasn’t worked all year. Soft coverages, no creative blitzes, no adjustments when can’t get pressure on QB with front 4, no trying to play aggressive man coverage, leaving best WR uncovered deep not once but twice.
      -then here’s the clincher: the 2nd half. game over, but somehow Forte stays in until last 8 minutes. Your promising rookie backup doesn’t touch the ball until there are less than 8 minutes left in the game. DJ Williams is in the fucking game on the last drive for some unconscionable fucking stupid reason. Martellus Bennett, who has a rib injury and probably shouldn’t have played, was still in the game with 6 minutes left. Brandon Marshall hurt his ankle with under 9 minutes left, down 41.

      WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE GODDAMN IDIOT COACHES?

      Got anything else to add to the list?

      • oh yeah, continuing to take kickoff after kickoff out of the end zone only to be tackled short of the 20 every goddamn fucking time.

        Having Chris Williams, who was a stud punt returner but shitty kickoff returner in the CFL, return kickoffs but not punts.

        Somehow failing to fix your punt protection on the right side after 9 goddamn weeks when it’s been a problem since week 2.

      • I think I’m numb by now. It’s all a green-vomit blur.
        At the bottom of it all, they coaches obviously fail to motivate the players.
        They came out like zombies, and midway through the 1st, they quit.
        It seemed like at the start they were trying to get cute and hit someone other than Alshon, Bmarsh and Bennett, but those are small details.
        Those players quit.
        Not to mention all the penalties. I mean, that delay of game? Seriously? Christ.
        Leaving Cutler in for that long is horrible too. I mean, it’s not as if he’s been the bastion of durability.
        Then again, Rodgers was left for much longer than he should have, and Matthews too for that matter.

        • when Rodgers came out for 2nd half, I started hoping he would get a Shea-type injury just for being a dick.

          Then I remembered that would require him actually getting touched, and that wasn’t going to happen.

        • SC Dave

          Do you REALLY think that the coaches are responsible for motivating players? These guys are *supposed* to be professionals.

      • Viva

        Why punt the ball to a team who scores every time they get the ball regardless of where they start? Why not go four and out instead of 3 and out? The field position argument doesn’t fly when you haven’t seen the opposing teams punter in over 6 FUCKING QUARTERS of football.

        • MikeBrownhadaPosse

          Exactly. This. 1000000 times this.

  • BerwynBomber

    The good news is we don’t have to face Rodgers for another year.

    • Viva

      My in-laws are all Packer fans. Fuck me.

      • That’s the one good thing about living in L.A. I’ll see a few Packer fans here and there, but nothing too intolerable, and most of them adopted those douchbags.

    • not sure, but I think it does.

      No point until after the season.

      For now I’d fire Trestman and Tucker, the de facto OC and DC.

      Promote Pasqualoni to DC and Kromer to OC. Either one HC, doesn’t really matter at this point.

      Tell them to play young guys wherever possible and play aggressive on both sides of the ball.

        I’m intrigued by the Lions defensive coordinator. Before this year he was a D coordinator for only one year in his career at Florida. Other than that he was always a DB coach. Whatever he’s doing in Detroit, it’s working. That D has a swagger, and they play tough late in games. The D-line and Levy are setting the example for the rest of the D by laying the wood.

        Detroit’s one weakness is the run game, but at least they try it every game. If Calvin Johnson is healthy now, along with Golden Tate, they are a tough team to beat.

        Hence the need to fire everyone.

    So I’ve got a bit of insomnia. Here are a few points:

    1) I’m in the minority. Everyone thinks Trestman is a good OC, bad HC. I disagree. Trestman is a good HC, bad OC. This offense is playing way below potential, the play calling is very weak, the execution is very weak. The OC is failing. Meanwhile, Trestman, a guy who knows how to coach a dynasty in the CFL, can’t get his players to care. Why? Because they know he’s not up to the challenge of being an OC in this league. Chip Kelly hit adversity, he adjusted, he’s still got a great offense. Trestman hit adversity and has not been able to adjust. I think Trestman struggles to find an OC job in the league. I think his ideal role is probably more like QB coach/ assistant HC.

    2) Cutler will start in 2015. To cut him this year leaves us with $38M in dead money. To cut him next year leaves $19M. Both of those numbers are unacceptable. Jay will have next season to prove himself or he will leave a ton of money on the table and the Bears will have almost no residual cap hit.

    3) I favor the following immediate moves. Fire Marc Trestman and Joe D. Make Paul Pasquolani your head coach (he’s a fiery character) and tell him give a lot of the young guys some reps on D. Jared Allen will not be back next year, so don’t be afraid to bench him. But focus on guys like DJ Williams, Shea and Bostic in giving reps to the young guys.
    4) Reduce Brigg’s reps to maybe 40 a game. He starts, but he gets out of the way so we can find a replacement for next year. On offense we keep the line as is, we keep Jay, but we preserve Forte’s body and Marshall’s health by cutting down on their reps. Alshon and Bennett still get reps as they are the leaders for our younger players. We try to find a diamond in the bottom half of the roster. Santonio Holmes provides more veteran leadership and finally shows whether he’s worth keeping for next year.
    5) We go offensive minded HC again next year. If the Paul P. shows something, he maybe stays on as DC.

    if we don’t fire some coaches, can we at least have them checked for CTE or other brain damage? there has to be a medical reason for there ineptitude.

    “Chicago was shut out in the first 30 minutes, as the team’s eight offensive drives in the first half ended with three punts, two turnovers and two turnovers on downs, along with a kneel-down going into the break.”

      Only those that watched in entirety deserve a medal Dave.
