Audibles From the Long Snapper: Bears Schedule, Cutler Thought, Around the League & More!

| November 3rd, 2015

AUDIBLESNEW

NEXT FOUR BEARS GAMES…

…are absolutely brutal. But they also allow this front office and coaching to evaluate young players in valuable positions.

  • The Chargers are not good but they love to throw the ball and will throw for a zillion yards against this secondary.
  • The Rams & Broncos defenses will be the best defenses the Bears face all season.
  • The Packers are the Packers.

The Bears can play well for the next month and find themselves 2-9.

ONE THOUGHT ON JAY CUTLER

Interestingly his leadership is never questioned when he plays well. The reason? It was always bullshit. Jay’s problem is not personality. It is interceptions.

AROUND THE LEAGUE!

(1) Who have the Packers beaten this season that impresses you? The best team they’ve beaten is St. Louis and on that day Nick Foles kept throwing the ball to them. The NFC does not have a great team.

(2) Why don’t the Lions have 8-8 in them? Since 2001, here are the Lions win totals: 2, 3, 5, 6, 5, 3, 7, 0, 2, 6, 10, 4, 7, 11 and currently 1. While the whole league tends to spend most of their time in the 7-9 win range the Lions have only been in there twice in 14 years. They either make the playoffs or they’re awful. No middle ground.

(3) Todd Gurley is averaging more than 6 yards per carry. No other back in the top in the league in rushing averages over 5.

(4) Great late Monday night Tweet from Sam Farmer: “@LATimesfarmer: Luck is like a radio signal that keeps going in and out. We’ve got Luck. We’ve got Luck. Nope, we lost him again. Now, he’s back.” Colts owner Jim Irsay better act quickly or he will lose his star QB.

(5) Backup quarterbacks in the NFC are now 0-7 in games they’ve started. And people wonder why the starters get the money they get?

(6) This might be Peyton Manning’s best team.

(7) Jets defense is great and were obliterated by the Raiders offense. Bears defense is awful and completely shut them down. I don’t get the NFL sometimes most times.

(8) Tom Brady is on pace to complete nearly 69% of his passes for 5,508 yards, 45 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. I mean…Jesus.

(9) The Vikings next six games are home to the Rams, at the Raiders, home to the Packers, at the Falcons, home to the Seahawks and at the Cardinals. Let’s not put them in the postseason just yet.

(10) If the season ended today…!

NFC BYE: Panthers, Packers

WILD CARD WEEKEND: Falcons at Giants, Vikings at Cardinals

AFC BYE: Patriots/Broncos/Bengals

WILD CARD WEEKEND: Raiders at Colts, Jets at Patriots/Broncos/Bengals

Side Note: If the Broncos beat the Colts Sunday the Texans would be in the postseason.

SCOTTSDALE ASSISTANCE NEEDED!

Yours truly will be in Scottsdale, AZ this weekend, including for the Monday night game against the Chargers. If you have any recommendations on good locations to watch the game with fellow Bears fans please email me – jeff@dabearsblog.com. Here’s what I found on the web:

El Hefe

Both the Tempe and Scottsdale locations of this Mexican restaurant have a huge Bears following this year.

Details: 640 S Mill Ave #110, Tempe. 480-257-2797. 4425 N Saddlebag Trail, Scottsdale. 480-945-6200. elhefe.com.

Boondocks

A Meetup group of fans of “Da Bears” sets up shop at Boondocks, with a keg and outdoor grilling for tailgating.

Details: 4341 N. 75th Street., Scottsdale. 480-949-8454, boondocksaz.com.

And with so many Midwestern transplants in the Phoenix area, it’s no surprise that many sports bars lean heavily Chicago. Here are a few to choose from.

Bruno’s Sports Bar & Grill

Details: 16737 E. Parkview Ave., Fountain Hills. 480-836-0770.

Half Moon Windy City Sports Grill

Details: 2121 E. Highland, Ave., Phoenix. 602-977-2700, halfmoonsportsgrill.com.

Hob Nob Sports Grill

Details: 7200 W. Chandler Blvd., Suite 14, Chandler. 480-940-4745, hobnobsports.com.

Some of it sounds okay.

    Yes Guy is on fire today.

    Anyone got any insight on the following?

    DEN -4 (@ IND)
    MIA +3 (@BUF)
    ATL -5.5 (@SF)

    • BillW

      I turn to the Yes Guy for inspiration every day.

      I need to do something about that.

      • Sactowns#1

        NO.

        • BillW

          Thanks. I needed that.

    • willbest

      I know vegas loves their home dogs, but I am taking Denver and Atlanta. Indy is a poor man’s packers, who the broncos just eviscerated Plus that is Manning’s house. San Fran is a pile of garbage that lost its RB, WR, TE and is benching its QB.

      My first thought is to pass on the Oakland game because there is too much going on there. But if you put a gun to my head I would take Oakland and the points.

      • BillW

        The atl/sf line may well move based on the latest evidence of 49er disarray.

      • BerwynBomber

        That’s right. I forgot about the Blaine Gabbert element. That could get ugly quickly.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Any chance he’s accurate and gets their shit together? I can’t say I’ve seen him.

      • Irish Sweetness

        I can’t believe Denver’s defense either, surely Luck is under fire there, and he might sling it where Rogers threw it away. If Ben is back in business next week, he has some receiving stars there, DeAngelo can still do it on the ground. 4.5 point is a lot.

    • Sactowns#1

      Raiders are riding high after that Jets victory but I don’t think theyre due for a letdown game. They have played well on the road this year and the Rapist is still looking shaky. SO I like the Raiders. Depending on the O/U I would take the over too because the raiders love to let teams score garbage time points.
      I would probably stay away from the Colts game. They played a very good defensive team last night and took it to OT.
      If you can still get the Falcons at -5.5 JUMP ON IT! Kap has been benched and that will be one low scoring affair so take the under as well.
      I like Washington if you can get them at more than 14 and the Rams have been great and will continue that streak this week. I’m seeing them at -2.5 which is a smoking deal.

      • Irish Sweetness

        n1 Sac.

    • BerwynBomber

      I’d be leery of the OAK game. Yes, PIT’s championship dreams are over with the loss of Bell but I would not be surprised if Big Ben has a bounce back game after their CIN loss.

      Other two lines look favorable but the road favorites thing takes some intestinal fortitude.

  • Trac

    I regre to inform you Jeff that your “If the playoffs were to begin today” section was a waste of space.

  • Trac

    From the crying over spilled milk section:

    When Lovie ran Chico out of town in favor of Babitch, I knew with every football fiber in my body that the wrong man got railroaded. Chico has had more than a solid career as a head coach since then and all we’ve experienced after he left is atrophy. Lovie was a slow death for the Bears imo.

    At least things are looking up for next year. Other than that, I’ve got nuttin.

    • BillW

      The famous “trust me” speech that planted concern regarding what I felt was a team being built to contend for years

    • MB30SD

      And there it is in a nutshell trac. Lovie is slow, painful, lingering death for an org… unless you’re tampa, where it was instant and brutal. hahah I’m glad you’ve finally come around.

      On a tangential note, when I talk to bears fans who are casual fans and know nothing about then and now. they just watch ESPN to see the score but that’s about as deep as their ‘fandom’ goes… these people always say they wished we had lovie back and that we’d be a better team is we’d never let him walk.

      I just shake my head and change the subject and/or walk away if I can. ignorant cunts. haha

      • Irish Sweetness

        Lovie might have been coach of the year if anyone other than Rex Grossman was under center. Kyle was too young, Griese was too old.

        • BillW

          The dumpster fire that was Emery/Trestman made people yearn for less miserable days. The day will come I truly believe when we will “thank” those two for making the Bears so laughable that the McCaskey’s were forced to go a very different route. I’ve said it before – I do believe the McCaskey’s biggest desire is to have the Bears in the national conversation by the 2020 centennial.

  • BillW

    To beninnorcal (regarding the comments about Olsen and Martz from the previous thread)

    It’s tough to catch meaning in short statements and mine was poorly written. I was not disagreeing with you saying Olsen was traded due to Martz. As you said that is well known. My comment was from frustration of lovie and Jerry letting the oc make that decision. Rhetorically asking “since when do oc’s make personell decisions?” meant the gm and hc should not have let a top player go.

  • MB30SD

    Ridiculous tweet:

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    One of the best players in the sport. Should still be in Chicago.

    Dude got shitcanned like 3 regimes ago… and about 10 OCs ago. Oh, and btw, he got canned because he’d show up for a game then disappear for 3. yeah, I’m sure he’d be a beast in our current offense, but no one has a crystal ball. SMH

    Been saying this for years. Within a year of jimmy showing up to ANY org, no matter how shitty, that program is instantly successful and a contender in their league. The guy is straight up monaaaaay and is probably one of the best HCs in the sport. Yeah, he’s a control freak and probably a total ahole type a weirdo, but who cares. If you want success for your football team, hire Jim Harbaugh. period.

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    So it turns out Jim Harbaugh’s success at every single place he’s coached was not fluky.

      I went as Bubbles (https://snippetstudios.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/tpb-bubs.jpg) from Trailer Park Boys. Two of my friends did Ricky and Julian.

      • CanadaBear

        Jim Lahey and Randy came to the little mt town where we used to live. Show was hilarious if you like TPB. At one point in the show, Mr Lahey is showing his invention, a portable hot box. It was a garbage bag with a clear plastic window at eye level. Mr Lahey asked if anyone had a joint (almost everyone did). He takes the joint and fires it up in the plastic bag. Unfortunately Mr Lahey is pretty much the same in person or in character. He was pounding Dum and Coke like it was his last day on earth. After the joint, he was a wreck for the rest of the show.

    • Trac

      Yup, just checked that tweet, Jeff WAS talking about Olsen. I was so hoping it was someone else.

      For the last time Jeff, our offense sucked when it was the Cutty/Olsen Show, hence the Bears fired Turner and hired Martz. Martz only used blocking TE’s.

      C’mon Jeff, get informed and stop hanging out with Gruden. Hee hee.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Tillman is the one that got away. 2M a year for one year.

    Best money spent ever. So so so helpful to have in my bag when asshole lawyer sits down in my car on train and ignores quiet car rules.

    I like to wait until the conversation gets to a key point

  • TheBigCheesy

    “(1) Who have the Packers beaten this season that impresses you? The best team they’ve beaten is St. Louis and on that day Nick Foles kept throwing the ball to them. The NFC does not have a great team”

    – There are a handful of teams in the NFC (packers, panthers, cardinals) that currently have a better resume right now than all four of 2014 conference championship participants did after week 8 last year. Sooo…. I don’t really know how you can make that proclamation. It’s too early.

    • BillW

      Plus the obvious – you can only play (and beat) the teams on your schedule. You can’t petition the league saying “the schedule is too soft; please make it harder so no one doubts us.

      Hey – don’t worry fellow Bear fans. I want to see the Pack lose more games like Sunday night. I enjoyed it thoroughly. But despite how Cheesy felt it still is but one loss. More to come most likely but you never know. Got to wait for it rather than effectively declare it based on who they played so far.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Arizona overcame 5 takeaways on Sunday, they’re about the best.

  • Bears-4-Ever

    To be honest So far from what I’ve seen, I can’t see ANY of the NFC teams beating Brady and the Pats the way they are playing right now. I had hopes that the Pack could do it but after the loss in Denver, I have serious doubts. All I’m hoping for now is someone gets lucky and eliminates the Pats in the Playoffs or in SB50. They were undefeated the season the Giants beat them in the SB.

    • Irish Sweetness

      That Broncos defense will cause Brady problems. Rogers had nowhere to go, and probably should have used his feet a lot more than he did, like on every passing down. The cards have an offense and a defense that could make a game of it in the superbowl. The Panthers barely beat the Colts, so they’re probably nothing special.

      • BillW

        One narrative says the Broncos (Manning I guess) will have trouble in cold weather. Don’t know how valid that is, but certainly a Pats/Broncos AFCC in Foxboro could make the difference. So the Bronco/Pats game in Denver on 11/29 will be crucial.

        And Denver gets a nice tuneup the week before.

      • BerwynBomber

        But Brady and the Pats are a whole different level than Rodgers and the Cheese. Half of Rodgers TDs are sandlot plays/shit he ad-libs after doing a 360 in the pocket. Looks amazing — the magician or wizard as MB calls him — but it’s really not sustainable against the very best Ds in the league.

        Brady and NE? Their passing game is as precise as a Swiss watch. It is usually no more than three progressions and the ball is out and their WRs get open quick. That is what they did to SEA in last year’s SB — mostly quick, nickel and dime stuff underneath. Credit SEA for intercepting him twice (I think they almost had a third as well) but Brady was still productive against them. The NE defense moved and wore on SEA by the fourth Q.

        Not saying that will happen against DEN’s ferocious looking D but if any team or QB can make it look mortal it will be Brady and the Pats.

    • BerwynBomber

      If P. Manning can play competently (no given), I also don’t see any NFC team beating DEN either. That DEN D has the look of SEA 2013 season.

      Heck, I don’t even know if any NFC team could beat CIN.

    • willbest

      This year’s real Super Bowl is being held 2 weeks before in Foxborough against the Broncos or Bengals.

      • NewBearInTown

        I’ve heard that before. Wouldn’t it be a shame if Arizona came in and trounced a flat, unprepared AFC champion two weeks later in the SB. Denver got destroyed a couple of years ago by the Seahawks in a similar kind of situation.

        • willbest

          Except Seattle really was good 2 years ago, and nobody in the NFC is passing the eye test except the Cardinals who still look mortal.

        • BerwynBomber

          Riding the Anyone But the Pats train (and yes, including even the Cheese), I would be fine with ARI pulling off such an upset.

          • Scharfinator

            Arizona is a good 2nd choice to win the SB over the Beloved. Do they have one?

  • BerwynBomber

    Despite their record, ARI is the best team in the NFC up to this point. If you look at their point differential, it is miles better than any other NFC team. Plus, they seem the most well-rounded NFC team. Arguably they have best O in the conference and a D that could be closer to CAR than the Cheese’s.

    Still, this looks the AFC’s year. Arguably, the three best teams in the league play in that conference: NE, DEN and CIN.

    • Trac

      Who’s their coach again? Uh huh, Emery you prick.

  • BerwynBomber

    (7) Jets defense is great and were obliterated by the Raiders offense. Bears defense is awful and completely shut them down. I don’t get the NFL sometimes most times.

    Maybe a young QB on the road vs. a young QB at home thing … aka … the growing pains of D. Carr.

    Plus, is the Bears D that awful in comparison to the rest of the league? Seems like it is middle of the pack .. maybe a tick or two below average but not much worse than that. Credit Fangio given the personnel.

    • BillW

      I want to believe in the 3-4 and I guess we just don’t have the pass rushers to really see what it can do. Never had it here so I never paid attention to it much.

      Put it this way, it’s a lot better than what we saw the last two years. (Damning with faint praise though.)

    • willbest

      I just think its a young team learning to play together. We played them in week 4, its week 8 now.

      • BerwynBomber

        Yeah, could be that too. Del Rio was my preseason prediction for HC of the Year so I’m still in the running there. My MVP prediction of Andrew Luck? Not so much.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Home advantage seems to be a lot bigger than it should be.

  • Sactowns#1

    Interesting line of the week- Even though GB got completely destroyed in Denver they are 2.5 point favorites going into Carolina this weekend. (essentially the same line they got last week in Den) Does Vegas really think that’s the right line or are they just trying to dissuade the huge numbers of Packers bandwagon fans?

    • MB30SD

      The latter. I hope they get their assessment handed to them.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Can Carolina mess with Vadgers the way the Broncos did though? That shit was clinical shutdown of Fudge infection.

    Also, on a sidenote, i usually watch bears games in my mancave alone , but this time a girl crashed out from the night before and whilst watching the game, she decided to give me a sloppy bj (and now u know why i was mia)
    Now, I’m not about to complain; however, i must relay how surreal an experience it is. To get a good bj while simultaneously shouting obscenities and lines like, ‘ god damn it neckbrace, turn ur head!’ Which I’m sure must’ve startled the poor gal.
    It is also a lil dangerous, esp if ur the jumping up a d down type.
    Next time I’ll just follow the wise crown and wait till halftime.

            Women are freaked out by that shit. They go to strangely unnecessary lengths so that other women won’t hear them pee.

        I saw a piece of paper taped to a bathroom door in a gas station recently, that said “One adult in the bathroom at a time.”

    I often make the mistake of expecting even a small amount of logic to go into decisions. I realize as much as anyone what a sham power rankings are. And I usually read them more for opinions on the top teams than on the Bears the last few years.

    But again – just a SMALL amount of logic is too much to ask?? Yep.

    ProFootballTalk:
    Vikings rise from 9 to 7
    Bears fall from 24 to 27

    The Bears lost to a team ranked well ahead of them by 3 points. By the ranking you’d think that exceeded expectations.

    The Vikings barely beat a team ranked well below them. Again, you’d think that that failed expectations.

    How do you reward a team that barely beat someone now ranked 20 positions lower???

    And re Jeff’s retweet:

    “There have been 30 PATs missed this season. PATs missed in previous 4 years combined: 36”

    The concept the way I understood it was to entice teams to go for 2 in situations other than end of game. I doubt it’s worked out that way.

    But the league will make the point that 2 point tries are up. Which I’m sure they are, but only because of missed PATs – not due to strategy.

    Now one could make the case that that alone makes the game more interesting. As in last night’s game when a missed PAT put the Colts in position to tie with a late FG.

    I hope at the end of the season someone does a real review including situations and not just say “less PATs and more 2 point attempts”.

    And by the way, if either the Pats or Pack lose a playoff game from this rule change, I’m good with it.

      I don’t like it. What it has done is actually INCREASE the importance of the kicker.

    I met a guy via work named Zolar Anis. Pronounced “Solar Anus.”

    I asked him if he liked to chew Orbit gum.

    • That sounds like both a porn and a villain name

    Alas, the fuck you money it would take to buy that for him would basically mean I need to become tony stark in a hurry.

    Jeff, I grew up in Scottsdale. My favorite sports bar to watch the game was called Goldies bar and grill, packed on Sundays and has the best chicken wings I’ve ever tasted.
    There’s only one location of Goldies and if you can’t make it there don’t worry because they(Goldies ownership) openned a chain called Zipp’s. Zipp’s are all over the valley, all have the Sunday Ticket, and serve the same delicious wings as Goldies. I live in San Francisco now and have no access to such fine wings. I literally find myself having dreams of those wings regularly.
    Goldies/Zipps also setve 32oz draft beers, which I also love.
