Bears Win! Bears Win! Rapid Fire.

Well, that was something!

  • What a performance by Jay Cutler. White whale captured. He was far and away the best player on the field last night.
  • Officiating debacle continues. The illegal contact on Tracy Porter gifted the Packers points. The tripping on Matt Slauson was one of the stupidest calls I’ve seen in years. Something has to be done. And soon. The experience of watching these games is being seriously hurt.
  • It can’t be understated what Fox & Fangio are achieving with this defense. Look at the talent level.
  • Jeremy Langford has to catch the ball. But he certainly looks far more explosive than Forte.
  • Tracy Porter is going to be on this team in 2016.

  • Pat O’Donnell is a huge disappointment.
  • Sacks by Lamarr Houston and Willie Young. This defense will be a force the rest of the season if this continues.
  • I was an advocate for trading Young at the deadline but he looked comfortable at outside linebacker last night. His work on the game’s first play – sticking on the flat route and then releasing to the QB – was textbook.
  • Hey Pernell McPhee. Wait for the snap.
  • But remember kids. The Packers won’t miss Jordy Nelson.
  • Marc Mariani had a nice day catching the ball.
  • Bears are a different team with Alshon Jeffery on the field.

Long day yesterday. Will be rewatching the game this afternoon so stay tuned to the Twitter feed for more thoughts. But what a Bears victory. Now they face San Francisco at home in 11 days to get to .500.

    Best way to end thanksgiving ever!

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    repost from last thread:

    in honor of this great win lets all remember how the packer fans are feeling right now

  • SC Dave

    Jeff, when you watch, give me a report on Prosinski. In my mind, he was player of the game, forcing a fumble and being instrumental in Porter’s late interception.

    While Cutler played probably his best game ever against the Packers, he *did* lose a fumble late in the game.

    Fortunately, the defense was up to the task and miraculously, Hochuli’s crew did not give them a phantom first down on a defensive holding or PI call right at the end. Must say I was expecting to get screwed by the zebras.

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      Quarterback Jim Miller also pointed out about 75 to 100 yds in dropped passes on perfectly thrown balls. Goddamn it Dave you could ruin a blowjob. He also didn’t “lose” a fumble so i don’t know what you’re talking about.

      • MB30SD

        I’ve come to realize that a REALLY good blowjob is either really difficult, or most chicks are just fucking dumb or lazy.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Just the head, sweetie. Anything else is just movies.

      • SC Dave

        Yes, that was stupid. He did not lose the fumble.

        As I said, Cutler played what was probably his best game against the Packers. But more important, the Bears won. With Jay. Trust me, I’m very happy about that.

    • beninnorcal

      He recovered the fumble, Dave.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Watched the game twice now.

    1. Nice to see Cutty make a statement with the whole nation watching. He was money dodging the rush last night.

    2. When Unrein is in there at FB, it’s a beautiful thing. He blew off 3 guys to let Langford in for the TD. More of him please, and not just on the goal-line.

    3. Callahan and Prosinski (who had a strip) look like keepers. Porter is playing All-Pro level. Amos is for real. All of a sudden we have a secondary who are getting the job done.

    4. Eddie Goldman is not getting the job done.

    5. Shea has to do a better job of calling that defense – we were getting gashed up the middle.

    • SC Dave

      1. The throw to Miller was all Cutler getting out of quick trouble and spotting Zach. A great play.
      2. Truth.
      3. Shocking, eh?
      4. We need depth in the center, but yeah, Goldman is not what we hoped.
      5. Related to 4, no doubt?

      We need more overall speed on the defense too.

  • The Yes Guy

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    it was nice to see thing have not changed much, as it seems Peppers decided to take the game off.

    • MB30SD

      Fuck peppers

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Holy shit has officiating gone off the deep end. I had to log off the blog because it’s not worth stressing over the result if the officials can have such an incredible impact on the game. I was able to sit and watch the game and just enjoy FOOTBALL even though I didn’t know what the result would be because of the officiating mistakes. I also glanced at the old thread and was happy to have avoided some of the worst trolling ever.

    Some of you guys (you know who you are) have such an obvious agenda when you watch a game that it’s borderline psychotic.

    I’m always amazed how people view the games even in victory.

    • MB30SD

      Hahaha… I did the same for about 10 minutes. Can’t stand those 3-4 trolls. They ruin the game threads for the regs.

      ‘Welp, that right there is classic loser bears. That just lost us the game, we’ll never beat the packers. We suck’.

      Assholes

      • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

        lol, some of the regs ruin it for the regs

        • MB30SD

          Meh, there was some nervous negative posts, but nothing like the 3-4 once in a while guys. Drove me crazy last night… obviously

        • Johnnywad

          Uncle Al’s got it right. Just minimize and move on but it’s just too difficult. I guess I’m not mature enough for that yet.

      • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

        i read some this morning. what a pussy.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Every scoreline should have an asterisk beside it: ‘Officiated by the NFL.’ A lot of games are decided by officials, not players.

  • Johnnywad

    My favorite part of the season is Rodgers’ “Awe Fuck” chasing down that bad snap. I must have watched that five times. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

      • Johnnywad

        LOL. I love that. My neighbor bleeds cheese. I’m going to find a way to make the audio from this his ring tone on my phone.

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          you sir are an evil genius. love it.

  • CanadaBear

    The fudgies really did the Bears a favor by scheduling Favre Night against them. Every player mentioned something about being the opponent for their “homecoming” game. Must have really struck a chord with the coaching staff and players. Whatever it takes to motivate!!!!!!!! I try not to bitch about the refs too much because it usually evens out. However, Hochuli and crew acted like they were on a mission. They screwed the Fudgies a couple of times with bogus calls but nailed the Beloved a half dozen times with phantom calls. Porter’s INT call, Slauson’s tripping call and time had run out on a Pack play and no call. Really? Fuck you, you fucking fuck. Al’s right, Hochuli is the worst.

    • SC Dave

      It was outright brutal. And I’m sure the cheese fans will rail about the play stoppages on the offside plays. Those were bizarre too.

      It’s like Johnny wrote, this shit is so off the edge that you cannot tell what’s going to happen on plays any more. Eeesh, it stinks.

  • StarkyLuv

    Yes, the Packers only TD was a gift from the refs. Yeah, bad calls were made in both directions (refs took a TD from them in the 4th by calling a play dead that should’ve been a free play) but the bad calls affected the Bears much more.

    That first TD drive should’ve ended with an INT for Porter. Who knows how that game turns from there? Oh well, Bears got the ‘W’, BEARDOWN!

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      both Porter and Amos stopped playing…..

      • SC Dave

        I don’t think it would have been a TD, but I imagine he would have completed that pass, unless the Packer dropped it. Which they have been doing charmingly frequency of late.

        • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

          he would have gotten a huge chunk of yardage no doubt but it looked worse because both guys heard the whistle and stopped running.

          • SC Dave

            Agreed.

          • MB30SD

            clearly showed porter looking at rodgers and stopping when they replayed it.

        • Irish Sweetness

          We had about 4 or 5 drops too, it was sad.

      • MB30SD

        this

    • The refs made many bad calls throughout the game last night that I don’t think were biased towards any one team.

      That particular play though, they got right. GB OL moved pre-snap in response to Chicago going offsides. Their G stood up and pointed. So then you have to blow it dead.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    i know several had mentioned it on the last thread, There should be no reason we are not in a jumbo package with Unrein in the backfield on the goalline.

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      it was sad to watch Gase miss that easy opportunity on 2nd and Goal from the 1 to simply put Unrein in the backfield in front of Langford run and unbalanced line and power it home. He wasted a huge opportunity and the play lost 3 yards so we didn’t even have 3rd and 1. I don’t know why coaches feel the need to avoid the obvious choice even if it’s virtually unstoppable since you only need about a foot and a half.

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        over the years we all have complained about predictability of play calls, mainly because they did not work. like you said this formation seems to be unstoppable, i would love to see us being very predictable on the goalline from now on.

        • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

          haha, virtually unstoppable i would imagine if you only need yard or less. The center getting blown up is the only thing that can ruin it so go off the guard and inside tackle. That guy Unrein is quick and fast and huge and looked like he’d been playing goal line fullback for years.

        • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

          alot of us were puzzled when they used to have success with that fullback we had blocking for Forte and just stop doing it….and then got rid of said fullback. Forte or Langford by themselves on a power run off Guard or Tackle is just not going to work unless there is some serious trickery going on around it that distracts the linebackers.

          • SC Dave

            Clutts?

          • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

            yes, loved that guy. Loved how he kept first line guys off of our running backs…and he was a longsnapper and a backup DE…and played quarterback in highschool and college.

          • CanadaBear

            But the Beloved got Sherrick McMannis for Tyler Clutts.

          • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

            yes, i love Sherrick when he is on SPECIAL TEAMS ONLY but miss my lovable Clutts.

          • CanadaBear

            I was being a smartass. Hopefully McMannis will never see the field again with the Bears other than ST’s. Clutts is probably the most popular, unknown Bear player (to casual fans) on this blog. For good reason. I’m sure Forte misses him.

          • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

            and he could catch out of the backfield… UGH.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Peanut’s in a pretty good place. Good for him.

          • SC Dave

            A lot of us do

        • Irish Sweetness

          They’re my favorite plays. The predictable ones that work like clockwork. No linebacker is blocking Unrein. Period.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    good to see Fox and our boys enjoying the win in the locker room.

  • Viva

    My comment to the TV after Slauson’s tripping call: “WHAT THE FUCK IS HE SUPPOSED TO DO WITH HIS LEGS….THEY HAVE TO GO SOMEWHERE?”

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      Collingsworth was in disbelief. I think he uttered an “oh boy”.

      • BearDown100393

        Favre sent Collingsworth a text before the interview.

        • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

          snapchat no doubt. learned his lesson.

          • MB30SD

            was that a… yes, I think it was… that was a small penis joke!

          • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

            jesss

          • SC Dave

            You are sick MB. In an adorable sort of way.

          • Jokey

            I had to educate my in-laws about the dick-pic and oxy addiction. Fuck that guy.

          • MB30SD

            Jokey!!!!!

    • burntorangenavyblue

      He’s supposed to bend his legs like the alien in Species when he falls foward, doy!

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Z. Miller coming into his own right in front of our eyes. Hope that kid stays healthy. He has good chemistry with the guys and has skills.

    • SC Dave

      He blocks better than Uni too. I think Martellus is gone.

      We can use his salary to pay Forte something reasonable 🙂

      • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

        in a perfect world i’d want to keep Martellus and Miller but something tells me he is not a locker room guy….at all. He seems like he truly believes he is an all pro being held back.

        • SC Dave

          I think you’re right on the locker room thing. Perhaps if he was goofy but still humble he’d fit better.

          But I’m never in that locker room, so I merely speculate.

  • BearDown100393

    Last night’s NFL officiating crew brought to you by FanDuel.

    • burntorangenavyblue

      Haha, yep. Did you know one of the NCAA bball tourney last week was named after Fan-Dual, at the Barclay Center? Odd, considering New York put a cease and desist order on their business. Sports is becoming more like WWE everday, sadly

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    I’m still shaking my head at Unrein as a blocker. That guy looked like a lifelong fullback. Quick, instinctual and delivered fucking punishment to Matthews. PUNISHMENT.

    • Irish Sweetness

      I’d leave him in there like Matt Suhey. Beastly.

  • White whale, indeed. I really don’t think you can overstate how important that game was for Jay.

    Without a performance like that, it’s always “yeah, but he sucks against/can’t beat GB.” A game like that in Lambeau legitimizes his breakthrough season.

    • SC Dave

      I agree. The loss opening day was miles from a blowout, and I think gave Jay and probably many others on the roster that they could beat G.B. *this year*.

      As so it is.

      Sweet.

  • burntorangenavyblue

    The biggest atrocity last night? They focused all night on Brett Favre. They were nut chugging so badly abouy ONE PERSON….on a night that should be about EVERYONE…..smh

    • SC Dave

      This biggest story, truly, was going in at 93-92-6.

      There is no rivalry in all of sports that can match a nearly 100 year history in a practical dead heat.

      But it looks slightly better this morning. 94-92-6.

      • burntorangenavyblue

        6 ties? Wonder if that’s the most among two teams?

    • Irish Sweetness

      I know. The game was going on and Favre is banging on about some fucking story none of us care about. STFU !! I’M WATCHING THE GAME!!!

      • BillW

        Mute was a wonderful invention.

  • WP4Life

    Victory Friday! Had a feeling with the evening being about #4. So Happy for Jay and Bears land.

    Hey Rodgers RELAX.

  • burntorangenavyblue

    Also, I was very nervous after the Rodgers interception. Bears playcalling way too ultra conservative considering Greenbay still had 3 timeouts left. When Rodgers gives you the ball, you better score because that is seriously like the coming of christ….it probably never happens in our lifetime pretty much!

    • they 100% should have gone for it on that 4th and 1. Go with Unrein at FB and Langford at HB. That lineup is literally 100% at getting 1 yard when needed this year.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Unrein, loving it.

  • The GP
  • willbest

    Porter was the best player on the field last night. Critical INT, should have had a second, and 4 passes defenses. Cutler was certainly the best offensive player though.
    Pat O’Donnell another wasted Emery draft pick.

    • RenoBear

      Gawwd yes… O’donnell has the SLOWEST wind up, and he just flat out sucks. Can’t pin em deep when needed, and when you need a 50-60 yard boot, he gets you 35-40. Fuckin hate that guy (and that’s real weird to say that about a PUNTER)… Is Tress Way still with Washington? Wish we had him

  • The GP

    Who has had made the bigger impact?

    Gase or Fangio?

    • MB30SD

      gase, hands down.

    • willbest

      If you go by unit improvement, that would be Fangio and it isn’t even close.

      • MB30SD

        but you don’t, you go by overall impact on the season. Getting cutler to play like the NFL has always wanted/expected him to is a massive achievement.

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          especially considering all the people that either wanted or were indifferent about a Cutty trade this offseason. and now a lot of those people(me included) would love to walk hand in hand with Cutty on a beach.

          • MB30SD

            that sounds lovely.

        • willbest

          They averaged 20 ppg last year and 21 ppg so far this year. The only difference is that Gase doesn’t put Cutler in a situation to fail, which Trestmen, Tice, and Turner did. Martz didn’t put him in a position to fail, but he did put him in a position to get killed.

          • MB30SD

            we’ll agree to disagree will. the eyeball test tells me this is a diff cutty altogether.

            the ppg don’t mean much when the entire type of QB he is has changed visibly.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Gase isn’t throwing the ball. That’s all on Cutty. Throwing it away,not throwing into traffic – that’s all Cutty kudos. Gase might be a part of the penny dropping, but Cutty always had the tools.

          • Viva

            That stat is skewed…Cutty didn’t play against the Seahawks and we got skunked…

          • willbest

            Cutty missed a game last year too, but that is because Trestmen is part weasel.

        • burntorangenavyblue

          I have said before season started on this blog as well as to my friends: Bears may not have a stacked and loaded team and may not be good on paper, but with Fox being their head coach, he will never treat his team as a 4-12 team….he will coach them up as if they are much much better than that.

          Now look at this team. We are on the up and up, and if the lightning in the bottle happens that gets the Bears a playoff spot, then that’s a hugely successful season.

          Owners and managers say all the time that rebuilding is important, but if the lightning in the bottle happens to them, they will never regret their team making the playoffs in a rebuilding year, EVER. BECAUSE $$$$$$

    • Fangio, by a mile.

      Look at where the defense has been the last 2 years and where it is now. Hasn’t really been a talent improvement.

      At least not yet. But it’s coming.

      • MB30SD

        while I agree with you and will (if considered in a vacuum), but if cutler isn’t playing like he is, the D doesn’t matter. one bit.

        You’re both statisticians aren’t you. And you’re still in a timeout!

      • CanadaBear

        Gotta agree. MB makes a good point about Gase getting Cutler to play less recklessly but the O actually has some talented players. The D has a few decent players but a bunch of them wouldn’t start for many other teams. Just glad the Bears have both of them (for now).

        • IMO what the Bears have now is a bunch of guys who can not suck (though their DL sucks, but part of that is that a couple of their best young players are on IR).

          Now comes the hard part… getting guys who can make plays. A dream offseason would involve getting a playmaker at DE, ILB, and S. Then those guys who don’t suck around that (plus McPhee) are a good unit.

          Looking at how FA and the draft appear to be shaking up, I would go for the DE in FA, ILB in round 1 (hope like hell Myles Jack is still there), and a S in round 2 (Jeremy Cash would be perfect, IMO).

          But however it happens, if you can land 2-3 impact defensive players this offseason (plus hope for some growth from within) I think this is a top 5-7 D next year.

          • willbest

            Need a left tackle and a right guard as well.

          • I’m ok with Leno at LT, not great with it, but ok.

            Especially with Long at RT. He’s getting better by the week and will be an absolute stud who doesn’t need help on that side by next year. So you can afford to have just an ok LT then.

            If they have a chance to upgrade on Leno, by all means do it, but it’s not a priority IMO.

            Agree about RG. I’d like to see them draft one in the middle rounds, plus sign a FA to compete with him.

          • CanadaBear

            I’m amazed that Prosinski, Anderson, and a couple of others UFA’s came in and contributed within a couple of starts. Either Pace is a genius or he’s good at his job and the coaches are taking care of the rest. Pretty sure it’s the latter. Makes me truly hopeful for the Beloved going forward. I haven’t felt that way for quite a while.

            Goldman seems a little over whelmed, same with Grasu, but I think next year they will take a step due to S&C and more coaching. White, who knows? Amos looks like a really good to great pick. Porter and McPhee were good signings. I still think Willie and Houston should stick around.

            Totally agree about the needs. Punter might be on the list but not on draft day. SMH.

      • Irish Sweetness

        I disagree on the talent thing. Our secondary was not good until Callahan, Porter and Prosinski were all part of it. Their presence has raised the bar. Either Fangio or McClellin is really messing up the run fits, and a healthy Rodgers would have sliced and diced us today. He lets the opposing QB just sit back there, choosing to rush only 4. Even on obvious passing 3rd downs, no blitz. Lovie’s bend don’t break philosophy. Never liked it. It doesn’t promote takeaways. Fumbles and strips and stops-for-loss and hastily thrown balls all come from attacking the ball. We’re not doing that. We’re just reacting.

        • CanadaBear

          No offense Irish but that’s a load of old boleros about a healthy Rodgers. He’s fucking healthy. Big deal, he hit his crazy bone on his left elbow. Rodgers had a ton of time on some plays but most passes there was plenty of pressure moving him off his spot. He wasn’t as accurate as usual and his WR’s dropped a few. Considering the conditions, that was to be expected. The Bear’s receivers dropped a few too. Langford dropped one with nothing but open real estate in front of him. I notice a few QB’s (Erin and Teddy B come to mind) that are totally about their stats, take almost no chances and when they fuck up, they almost always come up some mystery ailment.

          • Irish Sweetness

            So he sucks now? And he was the GOAT last month?

            He’s got the same receivers, and Adams was out early this year, I think.

          • CanadaBear

            Didn’t say he sucked. He isn’t playing as well as usual because he’s really missing Nelson (I pooh-poohed that early in the season but it seems to be a major issue), the other WR’s not only haven’t picked up the slack they have gotten worse and GB’s line isn’t all that right now. Erin is a different QB if you pressure him (they all are) and he becomes human instead of other-worldly.

            My point above, which I guess I did a poor job of getting across, was that Erin gets enough help from the refs, the media, you name it, he doesn’t need some weak ass excuse about hitting your crazy bone on your non-throwing hand. Cutler got knocked the fuck out against the G-Men and played the entire 2 quarter in la-la land. All he got for that was a ton of grief from the media and fans for playing shitty

      • BillW

        It helped gb insisted on trying to win via passing when they were running very well

        • Mike McCarthy is not a good playcaller, but somehow the guy they replaced him with is even worse.

          • willbest

            A packers fan thought McCarthy was still calling plays because they cut to McCarthy holding the playsheet up so much.

      • SC Dave

        Maybe the talent was never quite as low as so many seem to think.

    • Viva

      Fox. (He is the reason they are both here, and that is saying something. How many changes did Lovie get to hire an OC?)

  • So some dumbass fan this week said the Bears had no chance to win this game.

    What a fool. He deserves to be shamed.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      what kind of idiot would say something like that?

    • The GP
    • MB30SD

      what the hell is wrong with these fair-weather fans. It’s almost like they have vaginas where their penises should be!? For christonabike sake!

      …feel better yet?

      • I wouldn’t say fair weather fan. That’s when you only root for the team when they’re good.

        This is different. I expected them to lose, but never for a moment did I root for anything but a W.

        • MB30SD

          oh for fuck sake, you and will are killing me this morning. God damn you and your logic!

    • Irish Sweetness

      I didn’t back them straight up, took the spread along with Carolina, so I don’t know if anyone had total confidence.

      It’s just a great tipping point in Cutty’s career and a statement to those fans of other teams who had written the Bears off before the season started. That was fair enough, but most weren’t/aren’t willing to acknowledge his subsequent emergence as a mature, very talented quarterback, who just took a long time to realize his potential.

      He lost his #1 receiver before the season started … then he also lost his #1 draft pick. The line changes. AJ missing so much time, Eddie Royal. Forte going down. The situation has hardly been all roses for him this season, but he stepped up anyway.

      Lots of juicy wins next week, and Chicago is one of them.

      I said you were the only one who could doubt them without catching hell. I think we all had some doubt. Love being wrong!

    • Trac

      I’m pretty good with football instincts and I’ve had a good vibe about this team all year. Like I said before the season started, when teams play the Bears this year, they will know it come Tuesday after the game.

    Any word about Rodgers injury? I noticed in their last few drives he was having trouble connecting throws to the sidelines, some under-thrown or slow which would have helped Greenbay stop the clock more. He did fine with making throws down the middle, but that kept the clock running. I know they were against the wind, but that has never stopped Rodgers.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      it was on his non throwing arm. so i don’t think it should have affected him much

      • burntorangenavyblue

        Since it was wet, usually your other hand helps to push the ball into your throwing hand harder for a tighter grip while in the motions

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          true, but if he uses that as an excuse he’s a whiny little bitch.

          • MB30SD

            he is… a whiny little bitch.

          • burntorangenavyblue

            It was just a curiousity, haha

    • willbest

      He smacked the crap out of his funny bone. His arm went numb, and then you get the pain from low oxygen to the hand. It tends to work itself in a matter a of minutes

    • He said he lost feeling in his left hand for a big part of the 3rd/4th quarter after the game.

      He was still throwing dimes on the last drive. Don’t think it impacted him much.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Had no feeling in his left hand. That would suggest a nerve impingement. I had heard his shoulder was causing him problems in recent weeks. He’s completed half his passes over the last 4 weeks.

  • FourFeathers

    I don’t understand how Ed Hochuli and that ref crew can have jobs. Brutal calls for both teams. And this is a weekly pattern with this celebrity ass hat ref. Roger Goodell doesn’t have a grip on anything in this league.

    • burntorangenavyblue

      When Ed punches his hands before pointing the direction of the First Down, I just want him to take that fist up his ass. So annoying how showboating he is.

  • Bender McLugh

    So what’s the chances of this coaching staff actually staying together for another year?

    • burntorangenavyblue

      I’d say 1 or 2 more. Keep the vision and plan intact. Don’t think that the coordinators are “hot” enough yet to make other teams clamour for them for HC jobs

    • CanadaBear

      I read somewhere this week that Gase has turned down a head coaching job. If that’s true, he’s not willing to just take any offer. Who knows? I still think Fangio will stick around. Not sure why I feel that way.

      • Bender McLugh

        I hope they will

    • DaMurph

      If they are smart and look at the future they will choose to stay. If you win the big one in Chicago, your future is set!! You will be revered the rest of your life. Secondly when Fox calls it quits theres a good chance you get THE job! THE Chicago Bears job!!! There is a good culture and foundation being set. The future looks bright, why move into an inferior position?

      • Viva

        Fuck yes!!!

      • SC Dave

        I hope Gase and Fangio agree.

  • BillW

    Busy day yesterday and all weekend but I just wanted to say I’m incredibly impressed with this team. I feared gb was in their head but if so fox and company got them out. No way to overstate the significance of this win. Looking forward to catching up on the comments here hopefully tonight.

    Bear down!

  • Viva

    GP’s got a Jimmy Mac avatar going again. All is right in the world.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Where? GP? Show thy face … Jimmy !

  • BillW

    Serious question. Is it a penalty to have only 10 men on the field?

    • Irish Sweetness

      (complete blog silence as everyone realizes they don’t know)

      • BillW

        A packer fan was complaining that the Lions had 10 when gb missed the potential winning fg. Complained they should have gotten the flag, a walkoff, and another chance. I said that’s absolutely not a penalty

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          10 on defense is not a problem. 10 on Offense could possibly cause an illegal formation issue

          • BillW

            Right. That’s what I told him. Plus not sure 10 on offense is as long as 7 on the line. But that wasn’t his argument.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      nope

      • Irish Sweetness

        I’d love our running game to be so good that we could just send out 8 or 9 guys.

  • Viva

    Viva: “Can’t remember the last time I saw the Green Bay punter twice in a game let alone the first quarter.”
    Brother-in-Law: “and that’s after the Fat Bastard went for it on 4th down in their first possession.

    • Irish Sweetness

      And was flummoxed by Jonathon Anderson, in a possibly game-saving tackle.

  • Bender McLugh

    Prozinski, Porter & Callahan. Eh…..something witty

    • BillW

      Oh my?

    • sounds like a law firm.

      “We’re fighting for you to shut Rodgers down”

    • Irish Sweetness

      A Chicago Law Firm!

      Or a really, really expensive restaurant.

      • Bender McLugh

        Mmmmmmmmm prime rib

      a pollack, a bellhop and autoparts dealer walk into a bar…..

      • Viva

        The bellhop asks the autoparts dealer if he could buy him a drink.

        The Pollack says yes.

  • Ahhh. What a beautiful morning. The birds are singing, the skies are blue. Got good morning head hotel head while the curtains we’re open overlooking the water. Gonna get some cajun breakfast.

    Something diff about today, can’t quite put my finger on it, like somehow good triumphed over evil and the universe is at peace…

    • Viva

      Well done, lad.

  • Viva

    New thread…

    Butch – you should cut and paste below…

  • Jokey

    Why are we so bad at defending screen passes? Do our rushers lack that 6th sense to know that they’ve gone through the line too easily?

  • Joecashflow

    I have heard guys say they loved Lovie, except for blah blah, ……Well, I didnt. Gone anyway. What I love is the passion bacK on the sidelines. Foxy walking the sidelines, always animated, always patting people, giving the refs an ear full, just asking for some damn respect….and he gets it, from everybody. I haven’t seen that in a Bears HC in a long long time. Those cigar store Indian type head coaches did nothing for me. Chicago has passion on the sidelines again!
