    Dave Toub for STC.

    • willbest

      He probably signed a 3-4 year contract with the Chiefs. that won’t happen this year.

      • Viva

        Why do you want to piss in my Cheerios this early in the morning, will? I’m just getting over my absolutely could care less state of mind since the Fox hiring.

        • Big Mike

          Fox is good for our Bears. Toub would be a nice hire, the only way that happens is if the Bears promise to groom him to be a DC.

          • willbest

            The only way that happens is if KC lets him walk, which they would be insane too.

    • Scott W.

      Seconded for second option.

  • Irish Sweetness

    bastard. Secondness.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Further to Big Ben’s non-existence on the list of elite QBs, I see he was 4 times passer of the week on NFL.COM, one more than Vadgers. Kirk Cousins made that list, as did Fitzy. I would love to see Fitzy as a Bear with Brandon and Alshon to throw to. Smartest QB in the league. Yay or nay?

    • Anonymous Yahoo Poster

      c’mon man

    • BerwynBomber

      Ftizpatrick is not a UFA far as I know. Top UFA QBs for 2015 run IMO as follows:

      1) Mark Sanchez
      2) Austin Davis
      3) Colt McCoy
      4) Matt Moore
      5) Brian Hoyer

      Having said that, the hiring of Fox signals to me status quo on the offense side of the ball in regard to personnel, which includes Cutty.

      • CanadaBear

        That’s a really depressing list of choices. Hopefully we take a page out of the Cowgirls playbook next year. The ground and pound really seemed to help Romo. Not saying Cutler is as good as Romo (he clearly isn’t) but they do share certain characteristics.

        • BerwynBomber

          I would argue that Sanchez isn’t much inferior to Cutler (he outperformed Cutler this past year). Plus, he is CONSIDERABLY cheaper. Also, Austin Davis showed flashes this year for the Rams and he is only 25.

          Regardless, my bet is the Bears stand pat with Cutty. But they could sign one of the lesser UFAs as back-up if they part ways with Clausen.

          • willbest

            I would also argue that Sanchez had a much better play caller, a speed guy at WR to stretch the field, and an offense that didn’t love to commit false start penalties.

          • BerwynBomber

            And one could also argue that Cutler had much better receivers.

            Sorry, the Cutler Excuse campaign that has been going on for six years. Gets a bit old.

          • Scott W.

            I was pondering Cutler’s history the other day.
            I realized, surprisingly, that I actually have no idea how good or bad he is. None.
            I hear arguments for both great and disappointing, above average and bottom tier.
            So what’s the real answer, from an objective point of view? With stats, passer ratings, W/L records, player sentiments all weighed in (to H-E-Double-Toothpicks with Dilfer and all other talking heads), is Jay Cutler a good QB?
            I really have no idea, which is why I’ve vacillated between wanting to trade him to the CFL for a day with Canada touring his woods to wanting to keep him as our starter.
            Anyone?

          • Irish Sweetness

            I think the following is fairr comment after watching him for six years.

            1. He’s not accurate. This is not based on stats – which don’t tell you how accurately a QB throws the ball anyway.

          • Irish Sweetness

            If Cutty had the Hogs, Bo Jackson, Earl Campbell, Randy Moss, Cris Carter, Jerry Rice and Kellen Winslow, he’d still find a way to fuck it up.

          • Scott W.

            I think Sanchez is screwed in the head. His biggest problem is neuronal. And, I think it’s incurable.

          • BerwynBomber

            Yeah, I wouldn’t argue that about Sanchize. Austin Davis might be the best bet, especially if you have any hope of a long-term answer. But I imagine Rams will be bidding to keep him.

        • willbest

          That won’t happen unless they use #7 on an OT. Long and Slausen are solid guards, but they really need to get a beastly OT if they want Forte to have Murray’s level of success.

          • Irish Sweetness

            … and a RT and a center.

        • Scott W.

          Can we ground and pound with just Forte?

    • Scott W.

      Definitely the smartest. He’s one I always wondered how he would do on the right team with the right coaches.

    • Scott W.

      Straight honest question. David Carr. Did Houston’s then porous o-line ruin any chance he had of being above average?
      I always suspected, without proof, that that is exactly what made him less than mediocre.

      • AlbertInTucson

        He took a brutal beating there.

  • CanadaBear

    That tweet Jeff did about Trent Richardson is spot on. I’m shocked how little grief the Colts GM has taken for that horrible trade. That trade is in the Mirer category.

    • Big Mike

      The discussion that Jeff and I had revolved around whether or not the Colts GM had earned some goodwill by being in the playoffs consistently. I argued that he had. He argued that the only reason the Colts are any good is because of Andrew Luck being an exceptional QB. He believes that is a 5 win team with an average QB.

      Jeff trumped what I thought I knew, based on the fact that he’s watched every single Colts came. I have only watched a bit. So without further research, I stand humbled before the blog father.

      • CanadaBear

        If the Colts were my team (shudder) I’d love having Luck but wouldn’t give the GM any credit for that pick. I guess he did mastermind the “Suck for Luck” campaign but everyone would have taken Luck with the first pick. Since I don’t watch college ball I have no idea what happened to Richardson. Was it like Cedrunk? He never got hit until he was at the second level? I still can’t believe Cleveland unloaded him for a nice haul.

        • BerwynBomber

          Cleveland unloaded him for a single first round draft pick, which they used on Johnny Football.

          • CanadaBear

            You don’t consider a first rd pick for a a mediocre RB a haul? Just because they wasted the pick on Manziel doesn’t mean the trade wasn’t highway robbery.

          • Big Mike

            It is a haul, but I think the implication is a Herschel Walker sized haul

          • CanadaBear

            I guess but that certainly isn’t what I posted.

          • Big Mike

            You are right. But the word haul and draft choices, tends to make people think like that. But a first rd draft pick for a running back should get you run out of town, but hard to do that when you’re in the conference finals.

          • CanadaBear

            Totally agree. I could have used a better word to describe the heist.

          • CanadaBear

            I just looked up his stats. In 298 carries with Cleveland he had 2 runs over 20 yds with an avg of 3.5 yds/carry. YIKES!

          • Big Mike

            Leave it to Cleveland to be given a bonus first round draft choice for a guy who turns out to be a bust, to trade it in for another 1st round bust.

        • Big Mike

          It’s all about a happy fan base. But what a terrible trade for Indy.

          Here’s a question, what’s worse, the initial trade that Indy made, or Cleveland wasting it on Manziel.

          • CanadaBear

            I’d say the trade Indy made. Richardson was already exposed as a mediocre RB when they traded him. Manziel might turn into an OK QB. I doubt it but his story hasn’t been told yet. Richardson has been a healthy scratch a few times (and again today). Either way, I’m glad neither one is on our roster.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Yeah, only the top 1 or two RBs go in the first round, so why would you take Richardson when you can have your pick of the crop in the draft?

          • AlbertInTucson

            …and death is not an option.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Looking at them getting their asses kicked by the Pats I can believe that assessment.

        • Big Mike

          Wow, that was an ass whooping. Patriots are methodically excellent.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Rick Mirer. (Shudder).

    • Trac

      I remember how many people were commenting on how brilliant the Colts were for trading for him. That move can’t be compared to giving Cutty who everybody knew wasn’t elite an elite QB contract. Huge difference.

    • Been saying it this whole time. All GMs make a Shea level whiff.

    Was walking through the south forty several days ago and said to the bamboo….”The sun doesn’t filter through this stand like it did in the past. I have let you grow up on your own; and things have gooten extremely dense. I am going to have to cur out the dead wood…but you will feel better for it, and the sun will warm your roots again; I promise….”
    So while the Gm was out securing a coach I was deep in the bamboo forest; unaware of the series of fortunate events that brought Fox to the Bears.I have read a bunch of the past few threads and feel comforted by the general consensus. He was the chosen one and I marvel at the way the season unfolded only to drop Fox at our doorstep. The favorite quote I read about our new fearless leader is summed up thusly…
    After walking into an emptied out Carolina Panther office building to hold his 1st meeting with the players The Fox steps to the head of the room and unloads this….
    “You were 1-15 and they got rid of the rest of the coaches. None of these coaches dressed. None of these coaches played on gameday.

    • Scott W.

          4 to 5 foot long pieces, at least 2″ in diameter. Bigger IS better, indeed.
          Quantity would depend on your price per lineal foot.

          Rather have Fuller. HaHa has been pretty inconsistent this year.

          • Shady

            Not upset with the Fuller pick at this point either, but it’s been Fuller who has regressed and Clinton-Dix who has improved.

          • willbest

            Well Fuller was playing with a cast on his hand for half the season. He turned it back on in the last couple weeks.

            Plus the WR#1 in the second half of the season are a lot better than the WR#2/3s he was covering in the first half.

    • GPLDAN

      Howza bout Matthews on that blind side to Wilson?

          Yes, but Wilson has no business A) Throwing that POS pass and B) Mixing it up out there with the big boys and BEGGING to take a shot like that.

          He might as well have been wearing a big sign that said “HIT ME”.

      • BearDown100393

    #Bears have reached an agreement with Josh Lucas to become the team’s director of player personnel.

    • Shady

      I’m assuming he’s following Pace from New Orleans?

      • John Doe

        Indeed.

        Lucas spent 10 seasons in the Saints’ player personnel department, starting as a scouting assistant before moving up to an area scout (Southwest) and eventually a southern regional scout.

        Prior to joining the Saints, Lucas spent three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Lucas played safetyat Harvard for two seasons.

        • willbest

          Good for him. Get his own guys in there quickly so they can influence this years draft as much as possible.

        • Shady

          Wonder if he was Pace’s first choice…

          “Lucas’ move to Chicago could indicate that the Saints’ top two executives in the personnel department won’t be joining Pace. Rick Reiprish is director of college scouting and Terry Fontenot is director of pro scouting.”

      I don’t like the new design, but yes, it needs to come home.

      • Thisguy_justsaid

        It needs to be a trophy of a Bear. That’s what Halas would of wanted. Make it legit!

  • Thisguy_justsaid

    Russel Wilson has to be the whitest black guy I’ve seen. Just hearing his voice I expect to turn around an see a honky.

    Birthday boy Julius Peppers may have played his last NFL game. The 35 year old has a $12M cap number/$9.5M salary in 2015.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Piss on him. Played his last season out of shape in Chicago, THEN lost 30 pounds.

      • Johnnywad

        Seconded.

  • AlbertInTucson

    And now, a word from our sponsor…



    Green Bay thought it was in the bag…



    …their sideline laughed and joked.



    And then, the Packers started to gag…



    …and their defense completely choked.

      Hope that loss SLAPPED those too often “smirks and giggles” right off their faces….

        it starts out just like a lot of horror movies. driving along and make a wrong turn, next thing you know you are on a backwoods road and you end up in the creepy little town decked out in green and gold that looks like christmas and st. pattys day had a bastard offspring child. unfortunately all the women in town make Lena Dunham look like a super model. Its always a mistake for everyone that ever shows up there.

  • SC Dave

    What a shit result. Debating on whether I want the Colts to win. I want them to, but if they don’t, at least I don’t have to waste any time watching the Super Bowl.

    • Johnnywad

      I disagree. Nothing better than a painful Packer loss. Hard to get more painful than that. The Hawks did all they could to lose and the Packers just refused to win.

      • SC Dave

        No, the more painful loss is the Super Bowl.

        • Johnnywad

          True. but I was referring to the specific nature of how they lost this one. Plus its not worth the risk of them winning it all.

          • SC Dave

            Well, that last point I’ll concede. But, if the Patriots win too, it just proves cheaters DO prosper. And I hate that.

            But maybe I’m just too old fashioned.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Yes, Green Bay Nation, we fully realize that if Aaron Rodgers wasn’t playing on one leg, the Packers would have put at least 30 on the board and Russell Wilson would be wearing goat horns.

    That said, we also don’t relly care about that.

  • Big Mike

    Colts dropping all sorts of balls

    • Luck looks ready. The rest, not so much

        That is pretty much how to define Indy the last 3 years, except that when you play 6 games against the AFCS, a ready Luck is all you need to make the playoffs.

    • Big Mike

      Cheesy doesn’t talk smack. He’s a well behaved guest.

      • AlbertInTucson

        His long term history here is full of posts that scream “Packer Troll”.

        • BearDown100393

          His manners are better to most than a Romanian.

          • damning with faint praise.

            I’m rooting against he Pat purely out of spite. The Romanian won’t show up until the Pats win, sometime at dawn Pacific.

        • Big Mike

          By definition he’s not a troll. He announces himself as a Packer fan, doesn’t taunt when he clearly could. My opinion is he prevents a decent perspective.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Guess we’ll just have to have different opinions on this one, Big Mike.

          • Big Mike

            I have to admit I don’t really pay attention to him. But my bar is probably pretty high (low?) to call someone a troll. I found this blg after spending time on a bunch of sites that had guys doing nothing but saying things to provoke an argument.

            We can agree that he’s a diseases human for being a Packer fan 🙂

      • Johnnywad

        He does like to check in with the occasional “Bears still suck.”. The bastard.

        • Big Mike

          Yeah but that’s ok.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I disagree. That’s being a Troll.

  • BearDown100393

    Well done Hans and Franz. Well done.

  • God, I can’t stand SEA, but Packer’s losing, esp Pepp, gives me a unique jolly.

    • SC Dave

      Why Peppers? I just don’t get it. The Bears fired him – what does he own Chicago or its fans? Nothing. Nothing at all.

      • Doc Hamstring

        He owes Chicago fans for how poorly he played the last year he was in Chicago, versus how well he’s played this year.

        • Trac

          His balls are for business and his heart is for his family. He doesn’t owe Chicago jack. He never got the bookend he was promised and when Lovie got canned his heart wasn’t in it. Can you blame him? Nobody played for Tucker.

      • AlbertInTucson

        I repeat my earlier post: “Piss on him. Played his last season out of shape in Chicago, THEN lost 30 pounds.” I don’t care who he’s playing WITh or being coached BY, he certainly still owes the paying customers an honest effort and being fat and out of shape is NOT an honest effort.

        • BillW

          If I recall that was the knock and complaint when he came to Chicago. Carolina fans were upset that he went downhill for them and rejuvenated here

  • I can almost guarantee Blount will fumble it before the game finishes.

    • BearDown100393

      He looked pretty good on that touchdown.

  • SC Dave

    I don’t understand all the glee over the Packers losing. I mean *were it the Bears* that beat them. …….

    • Doc Hamstring

      Packers pain = our pleasure

      • huntinbare

        That is how we calculate

    • Trac

      Screw the Packers. They are not that good. They’ve been winning the division because the other teams in it have sucked for years.

      • Big Mike

        They are pretty good because they have the best QB in football and a GM who consistently gets them enough good players and their coaching staffs adapts to what they have.

        • Trac

          They lose in the post season every year. The cheese suck. Screw the puke and piss yellow chokers. Hahahaha

    • Johnnywad

      What else do we have?

      • Big Mike

        and now the Blackhawks are in a funk.

    Aaron Rodgers: “We were the better team today” http://bit.ly/1uh8M9T

    • WP4Life

      Doesn’t matter. Last season on the never g.b. dead ball touchdown we were the better team that day. Who says that after a loss. A professional says…hats off to the victors, we gave it our best, we didn’t get the bounces today and they won, congratulations, to them. We will hopefully be vixtorious next year. . I personally find When Rodgers does his belt jesture, it’s an insult to the game.

      • huntinbare

        This year they get a refund on the double- check

        • Scott W.

          Or, one could go whole corn, suggest the double check bounced.

      • AlbertInTucson

        He should have done the “Discount Double Choke” move.

  • Thisguy_justsaid

    Tom Brady wins the super bowl this year is a clear point on why he is the best qb for the past two decades.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Yup. While Andrew Luck continues to channel his inner Peyton. look great during the season, then shit the bed in the playoffs.

  • Thisguy_justsaid

    Dave Toub question. Does anyone even know what side his leans to more offense or defense?

    • huntinbare

      He played offensive line in college for UTEP…coached in college at Missouri…conditioning, some offensive line and some defensive line; before coming into NFL at Special Teams…

      • Thisguy_justsaid

        Ok and so what side does he prefer?

        • huntinbare

          I would have to ask that of him…just pointing out his balance

    • BearDown100393

      Dave Toub leans to winning.

  • BerwynBomber

    Wonder if the championship window has closed on Rodgers and McCarthy. Just a brutal collapse from which it could take years for a franchise to recover. Couple it with last year’s exit — when Micah Hyde failed to catch a straight-in-your hands-game-sealing INT in the last two minutes from Kaepernick — and this team could be the equivalent of Tony Romo heading into any post-season. Basically, a team with a cloud of doubt hanging over them, which can be devastating in terms of an athletic mentality.

    Btw, go SEA. Tired of the Tom Brady coronations. They’ve run their course.

    • Thisguy_justsaid

      Two words.
      Tom
      Brady

      • John Doe

        Seahawks defense will give Brady fits.

        I am hoping Pete Carroll gets his revenge on Rober Kraft and denies Patriots yet another Super Bowl.

        • BerwynBomber

          I don’t know. SEA may have lost Sherman until next year. That will be a huge hole. Plus, if there is one HC I would trust to figure out SEA’s D it would be Belichick.

          • John Doe

            Sherman says he is playing. They will get him ready somehow.

            Pats played Seattle last year or the year before that and got spanked by that defense.

        • Thisguy_justsaid

          Tom Brady and the pats role onto another SB

          • John Doe

            They are going to lose again.

          • Irish Sweetness

            ‘Sup Barb ?

        • Irish Sweetness

          Tom wins another ring methinks. The Hawks wouldn’t come back against the Pats like that.

    • John Doe

      McCarthy has underachieved and wasted having Rodgers as QB. Just look at their record. They should have won multiple Super Bowls by now..

      2007–OT loss at home by INT.
      2008–missed playoffs
      2009–OT loss by fumble. One and done.
      2010–Fluke SB win aided by Bears.
      2011–routed at home as 1st seed. One and done.
      2012–routed by Kaep at SF
      2013–Beaten at home Kaep.
      2014–OT loss in historic choke.

      • BerwynBomber

        Yeah, I’m not sold on McCarthy. I think he is a solid HC but not much more. Though I don’t know if I can hang today’s loss on him. That just came down to ST and D execution.

        • John Doe

          Of course, today’s loss is on McCarthy. He played conservative and lost.

          the two field goals in first quarter cost them the game. They should have put the game away.

        • AlbertInTucson

          It was like with 5 minutes to play, the Packers suddenly forgot Russell Wilson was mobile.

        • Irish Sweetness

          If he didn’t have Rodgers he would be one of the NFL’s many no-name coaches.

      • Big Mike

        Sucks for them. HAHA

        Maybe consistent success and winning the Superbowl has something to do with more than one guy you immense fuckwad?

    Falcons are hiring Kyle Shanahan as their OC, per league source. Shanahan and Dan Quinn planned to be package deal.

    • Shady

      Damn.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Makes sense with Quinn the defensive whiz and if you’re Little Shanny and your choice is Jay Cutler or Matt Ryan..?

  • BillW

    Despite his almost historically bad performance Wilson outplayed Rodgers in the clutch

    I always asked if McCarthy was riding Rodgers or actually a good coach. Still don’t know

    Good game plan by capers to make Wilson beat you with his arm

    You know, until he did

    Obviously the players have to make the plays but play calling not great. Didn’t Rodgers throw incomplete late in the fourth on third down stopping the clock? Though if they ran there maybe gb loses in regulation

    Look for calls for ot rules to change now that the “best qb ever” was “denied” a chance in ot

    It’s been a good couple weeks for bears fans

    Btw. Cheesy is a good participant here in my book too. . It’s gotta be tough. Rodgers will quite possibly finish with the same number of super bowl wins as Jim McMahon

    Even with maybe the best ever it is still really hard to get there

    And elway had no use for John Fox?

    • Irish Sweetness

      How many people here think Rodgers is the best ever?

      • BillW

        Before today I’d say he was in the conversation. Today he was clearly hurt.

        • Irish Sweetness

          That’s one !

      • Johnnywad

        He’s in the team photo

        • Irish Sweetness

          That could be as third even fourth string.

      • Cormonster

        I don’t think so, because a lot of other QB’s have been better in the clutch. Hard to compare different eras with the rule changes.

        • Irish Sweetness

          And then you have to consider guys like Otto. Ten year career – in the ‘superbowl’ every year .. wins seven of them.

    • CanadaBear

      McMahon has 2 rings (one with the Fudgies).

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      I hate to say this but cheesy has been the least annoying troll on this site over the last six months.

  • Shady

    Any early guesses as to what the Super Bowl line will be? I’m guessing the Pats will be 3 point favorites and an O/U of 47.5

    • Irish Sweetness

      Then they’d probably be +3.5 favorites, because the bookies are clever bastards. And at that price maybe you have to go with the Hawks. It’ll be a close one.

      • Shady

        WITFHUB?

      • MikeBrownhadaPosse

        Getting action going.

    • BillW

      If I had easy access to legal sports betting it would have been tempting to take the pack and points today. They were getting anywhere from 7 to 8.5

    • AlbertInTucson

      It’s Seattle, -2.5.

  • BillW

    So I just read in pft that Rodgers said the better team lost today.

    I have some advice, Aaron –
    R-E-L-A-X

    and enjoy your time off.

    • BearDown100393

      Perfect.

      • BillW

        I lost a lot of respect for him. Very classless. Understandable but shows no respect for an opponent who deserved to win because they made the plays

        And it was first disgusting then satisfying to see Mathews all giddy on the sidelines with 5 to go and then walking with his head down when the game was actually over

        • WP4Life

          when rodgers does the championship belt jesture i find it disrespetful to the heritage of the game.

          • AlbertInTucson

            That crap is for rookies who don’t know any better. Bart Starr would be embarrassed for him.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I place any and all sack celebrations, “first down’ signals by receivers and any endzone celbraztion beyond one spike in the same class.

          • willbest

            I am willing to cut the non elite players a lot of slack, because how many TDs/INTs/FFs/sacks/whatever are they going to have in their entire NFL career. But if you are one of the clutch guys who is going to have 50+ TDs then yeah, act like its thursday and not the day you closed an account that is going to net you a commission worth 20% of your base pay.

        • AlbertInTucson

          “The Better Team” would cashed in those 5 turnovers and put the game away. What the Packers got out of all those turnovers was, well, BEAR-like.

          • Cormonster

            Six points off 5 turnovers, and both times Green Bay was already in FG range.

    • Johnnywad

      Classic. Aaron’s a tool. He’s Captain America while things are going well. He’s a whiner when things get tough. Canada calls him “Erin”. Its perfect.

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      He’s just so damn classy. Vomit.

  • BillW

    Read some of Milwaukee journal stories and reader comments

    Last play Wilson audibled since gb stacked against run

    Guy who could have had onside claimed it wasn’t his play to make since he was there to block

    Fans seem to blame. MM for being too conservative and also not calling quick outs to Sherman man and see if he could tackle one handed
    (but why didn’t Aaron think of that? Rep takes a hit there imo)

    Many seem to hate capers and MM (he just signed an extension) and are lamenting that like fsvre Rodgers may only get one ring

    My feeling would be similar. In a qb league they had two of the best ever and only one ring each. .

    Great organization but then again still not good enough

    The gap may not be as great as I feared

    • AlbertInTucson

      “Guy who could have had onside claimed it wasn’t his play to make since he was there to block.”

      The guy’s as tight end, no? Surely in there to be a part of “The Hands Team”. In any case, he sure got an EARFUL from the ST coach on the sidelines after that play.

      • Cormonster

        He was at the line to block and allow Nelson to catch it.

        • AlbertInTucson

          So he screwed up by going after it. He should just own. “I should have caught it.” Guess he R-E-L-A-X-ed, too soon. Like the the Packer defense.

          • Cormonster

            The Packers run D got exposed in the second half. Lynch only had 37 yards in the 1st half. Kudos to Seattle for sticking with the run.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            Exactly.

          • AlbertInTucson

            If you keep pounding, it usually, eventually pays dividends.

          • Cormonster

            There were several Seattle games I watched or followed this year where they only had 30-50 rushing yards in the first half and finished the game with 175-200 yards. I was talking to a Lions fan buddy before the game about this exact thing.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            Don’t tell Tresticle.

          • Cormonster

            I can’t believe teams are interviewing him for OC after his shit play calling this year. I can’t remember one game where he tried to establish the run, unless you count the 2nd half of the first GB game when he gave up with 5 minutes left and ran out the clock, or the 2nd half of the Patriots game when we were already down by 4 or more scores.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            Yup but let’s trade matt.

          • willbest

            Its easy to stick to the run when Russell Wilson averaged 6.5 yards per touch (and 4 turnovers), and Lynch averaged 6.3 yards per carry with no turnovers.

  • Scott W.

    I’ve just watched my last NFL games of the 2014 season. A Pats/Seahawks SB is less interesting to me than Jr. High golf.
    I couldn’t possibly care less about this one.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Really? The two best teams matching up? Then again I never watch the superbowl and rarely watch playoff games.

  • John Doe

    Bears need a big, bad, bruising running back so bad.

    Bears have to make a play for Marshawn Lynch (if Seattle lets him go) or Blount. So tired of weak sauce from Forte who can’t break one tackle and produces if only given clear running lanes.

    • Johnnywad

      That’s about the dumbest assessment of Forte I’ve ever read.

      • John Doe

        there is a reason Forte gets no respect in the league.

        Look at this season. Forte put up numbers but nothing like Lynch, Leveon Bell, Eddie Lacy, or Blount. I would have either of those guys any day over Forte.

        • BillW

          It might have helped if they ran more. Lots of reasons why they didn’t (like being down 50 or whatever at halftime)

          • John Doe

            That is not the point. Forte is not a power runner. He is just not. He gets tackled by a CB with one hand on his ankle. so easy to bring him down.

          • BillW

            You said his numbers were nothing like Lynch etc

          • Johnnywad

            Their rushing numbers are nearly identical. Forte well outpaces Lynch through the air. This is a silly argument. They have two different running styles for sure, but they’re netting the same production on the ground.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            Seriously.

        • Irish Sweetness

          He doesn’t up numbers, running wise. Unimpressive, statistically and on the eye.

          http://www.nfl.com/player/mattforte/234/careerstats

          He’s a great dual purpose player, but not a great running back.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Jamaal Charles gets no love? Averages 5.56 yards per carry. Never averaged less than 5 in his career thus far.

        • Johnnywad

          Everything you posted her is wrong.
          Forte gets plenty of respect.
          Over seven seasons Forte has averaged 4.2 yards per carry. Over eight seasons Lynch has averaged 4.3. Pretty similar. Now let’s add receptions. Despite Lynch being in the league for a full season longer than Forte, he’s still a thousand yards short of Forte in yards from scrimmage. If you want to discuss “putting up numbers”, Forte is outpacing Lynch handily.

    • Shady

      Started out OK but you veered off the trac there.

      • John Doe

        Sorry, I don’t get the forte love from bears fans. Forte is weak.

        • Shady

          Irish?

          • Irish Sweetness

            I concur with JD – wouldn’t call him weak, but the eyeball-test and numbers on the ground don’t add up to much. Talking running here, not pass-catching.

          • Johnnywad

            Marshawn Lynch 4.3 yards per carry. Matt Forte 4.2 yards for carry. Career averages.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Marshawn is the better running back though. hands down. It’s 4th and 2, your season is on the line. Same offensive line, who would you rather hand it to?

            They are quiet close in stats though, and there’s no way I’d make a move for Blount or Lynch at this stage of their careers. Draft em, don’t pay old guys.

            When they go, the go fast. Shaun Alexander is a prime example. Cowboys HAVE to be very wary of what to pay DeMarco Murray (Especially since they now have to pay Dez Bryant, too). The history of guys in years following a season near 400 carries is not promising.

          • Johnnywad

            Gotta leave the table with house money. Find the next guy. Look at the backs the Patriots have used just this year. Its a tough deal for RB’s.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            They have to let Murray walk. Would be idiotic not to with their cap problems

          • AlbertInTucson

            Forced to choose, I’m paying Dez.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            Exactly. The Boys fans I know are saying the same thing. Murray is an injury magnet anyway.

          • AlbertInTucson

            That said, while Murray has a very sketchy injury history, Dez is widely rumored to be an “Off-the-field-disaster-waiting-to-happen.”

          • CanadaBear

            This year had to take a productive year or two out of his career. I can’t remember the stats but after a year with that many carries the RB usually falls off a cliff.

          • AlbertInTucson

            He was also clearly less effective in the 2nd half of the season.

          • Johnnywad

            I don’t know. I’d be comfortable with either. They have the same success running the ball through fifteen combined seasons. Marshawn is better at running a defender over. Matt is better at finding lanes and making dudes miss. It really is a toss up. Plus you can always throw Matt the ball in the corner of the end zone. Play action baby.

    • burntorangenavyblue

      This statement is about as asinine as Cubs ownership removing 5,000 bleacher seat during the opening month of the season for renovations.

      We get it….Bears need a bruiser, but a real fan wouldn’t undervalue Forte’s accomplishments to this team…could you do 60 percent or more of your company’s entire output production on a regular basis year after year?

      • Irish Sweetness

        In fairness, his value has nothing to do with the statement ” who can’t break one tackle and produces if only given clear running lanes”. True dat.

        We DO need a bruiser. Forte gives us the outside stuff and the receptions, sure, but he’s no bulldozer.

      • Johnnywad

        How about “Bears could use a big, bruising running back/full back hybrid to compliment Forte.”?
        Its true and not stupid. I don’t get the ” Forte is soft garbage.” The guy is near tops in the league in yards from scrimmage and he’s proven exceptionally durable. He’s reliable, rarely fumbles, and he doesn’t beat his wife.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Let’s not cloud the issue with facts, please.

          • burntorangenavyblue

            Too logical, I know…

        • Cormonster

          Oh yeah, and he leads the league in yards from scrimmage over the last two years.

        • Bear Down in Tampa

          Forte is a nice player, but in 2014 on 3rd (or 4th) and 2 or less he rushed 22 times for 50 yards and 2 TD’s. That’s 2.3 YPC and while it does get skewed some for goal line work, Marshawn Lynch averages 3.5 YPC (with 3 TD’s) in the same scenario with almost as many carries (20).

          • CanadaBear

            If you’re going to quote 2014 stats you might want to look at the entire O a little closer. We couldn’t have sucked more if we tried.

          • Johnnywad

            I know. I, as everyone here, can clearly see there is a difference in running style between the two. But this far into Matt Forte’s career, his body of work stands out amongst all active running backs. It also stacks up well in the list of the best ever. He’s not the best to ever play by any stretch. But this sentence…. “So tired of weak sauce from Forte who can’t break one tackle and produces if only given clear running lanes.” is just completely ridiculous. You Tube “Matt Forte highlights” a second and see if you can come away from it thinking that. Also, let’s not forget he played through some pretty lean years on the offensive line while compiling his numbers.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Will Best wakes up Monday. Sits down at the laptop with his coffee and a fuzzy tequila head and opens up DBB.

    Oh Lordy ! I said what?

    “yep… Would rather have Jay Cutler than Russell Wilson”

    Uh-huh.

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Would rather have Pete Caroll then Marc trestman. Sound better?

    • willbest

      Russell Wilson’s last 4 minute heroics aside, he still completed less than 50% while throwing 4 picks. Jay Cutler had a bit of a reputation for winning games like that a few years ago behind some exceptional D and ST play.

      Russell Wilson is not a guy like Rodgers or even your man crush, Big Ben, who makes the rest of the offense look good. He does however have a good football IQ and is very good at protecting the ball. But if he can’t reliably do that mean it matters why exactly is he better than Cutler?

      • AlbertInTucson

        Well, he normally takes WAY better care of the football. 4 INTs is an anomaly for him.

        • willbest

          If I had to guess he got panicked, and was in a “I need to make a play” mode for the better part of the game. If this was his first rodeo then you would call that playoff jitters, but it wasn’t, so where did it come from?

          • AlbertInTucson

            If I knew the answer to THAT one, I’d bottle it, sell it and retire in a month.

          • Irish Sweetness

            How many nightmares has Jay had? This is only Wilson’s third season remember. Elway put up ten stinkers before respectability.

      • Irish Sweetness

        1. A superbowl ring is on his finger already – second superbowl coming up perhaps – and he’s only been in the league three seasons.

        2. His QB ratings for those seasons are 95, 101, 100. Cutler’s avg is 84.

        3. He is an accurate passer, even on the run.

        4. He looks after the football and has a much lower INT %.

        5. he can run once the play breaks down. Cutler rarely does. Wilson has more yards than a lot of RBs.

        6. He’s smart.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Opening line for SB 49 is Seattle -2.5.

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    As far as super bowls go, I’m actually excited for this one. It’s scheme vs talent. O VS D.
    Spaz vs hoodie.
    And those f-cking cheese heads choked themselves out. And I have to love that.

    • AlbertInTucson

      On the face of it, it would appear to be classic matchup.

    • willbest

      Depends on how hurt Thomas and Sherman are. Plus if the Seattle D-line plays like today Hoodie is going to tear them up.

      And if Wilson tries those floater passes to Baldwin against the pats, Revis is going to end up with SB record in INTs.

      • AlbertInTucson

        2 weeks to heal up.

        • willbest

          And that just goes to show the difference between my pansy ass and those guys, because I can’t even heal from a stubbed toe in two weeks.

          • AlbertInTucson

            In fairness, “turf toe” takes a LOT of NFL players of the field for multiple games.

            I separated my right should sdiving into 3rd ina softball bak when I was still coordinated enough to engage in such activites.

            At first. Nothing. Fished the game. Had a couple with team after wards and went home.

            Round about about midnight I thought the armwas coming detatch at the socket.

            Saw the doc who told be it was a “slight separation”. He didn’t even have the courtesy to give it a degree of separation like to usually hear.

            Gave me an RX for the painand said it would heal on it’s own.

            I suppose I should be thankful he didn’t just say “You big baby. My 8 year old comes home with worse from youth soccer. Get out of my sight, you big weenie.”

          • Johnnywad

            I cracked a toenail putting my boot on yesterday. I’m thinking about taking this week off.

  • CanadaBear

    Man that was a choke job for the ages. The only way that could have been more painful for Fudgie Nation is if it was in 2 weeks. Erin showed her true colors. Someone else posted it but when he ran out of bounds he forgot to limp until the end. Then he went all in for the sympathy. What a douche. Someone is getting fired for this one. I’m guessing it’s either Capers or their ST’s coach. Why they didn’t test
    Sherman after he got dinged up is beyond me. At the very least run a pick play at him and pick off the other DB. There’s no way in hell he was tackling anyone.

    • AlbertInTucson

      The Sherman situation IS mystifying. Surely, the receiver lined up across from him would have said SOMETHING about it, let alone somebody in the coaches booth. They were working on him on the sideline so it wasn’t like Sherman was faking it to TRY and get the ball thrown his way.

      • AlbertInTucson

        I know, I know. “Don’t call me Shirley.”

      • CanadaBear

        I was hoping they had a play where they could have isolated him on a sweep with Lacy. That would have been endlessly entertaining. Sherman would have had to bring him down with his big mouth.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Their talking about a possible “nerve impingement” in his left elbow. I bet that arm was numb for the last part of that game.

      • CanadaBear

        As much as I dislike Sherman I was sure he wasn’t just fishing for sympathy like Erin. I couldn’t tell if it was his elbow, tricep or shoulder. At first I thought it was a stinger but it was way more than that.

        • willbest

          I was beginning to think he broke his wrist.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I thought he had separated the shoulder.

          • AlbertInTucson

            As always, I am NOT a doctor. I just pretend to be one on this blog.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Same goes for “Football Genius”.

        • AlbertInTucson

          How can you dislike Richard Sherman? His just SOOO endearing. (He said, sarcastically).

        • Irish Sweetness

          Hyper-extended elbow it looked like.

  • AlbertInTucson

    By the way Mr.”We were the better team”. The “Better Team” QB DID throw two INTs including one in the endzone that, considering how well Mason Crosby was kicking, probably cost “The Better Team” 3 points. 3 points that would have looked pretty good at the end of that game.

  • AlbertInTucson

    John Elway welcomes his old backup home. Gary Kubiak returns to Denver as HC.

    • DaMurph

      So he was just full of shit when he said he wanted to stay in Baltimore

  • AlbertInTucson

    So, apparently, that defense and running game Indy showed last week were just a mirage.

  • AlbertInTucson

    “I’d rather be lucky than good”. Packer fans will see that 2 point conversion in nightmares for YEARS.

    • willbest

      Haha Clinton Dix gave his best Brock Vereen impersonation.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Talk about a “whiff”

      • AlbertInTucson

        He looked more like BEN Vereen dancing around that ball.

      • Big Mike

        Kid had two picks yesterday. Nice ball game.

    • Big Mike

      Packers have killed us over the years with gimmick plays.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

      lol

  • Irish Sweetness

    I owe Matt Forte an apology, and here’s why.

    Timmy Smith.

    Remember him? If you’re a youngster like Barb, maybe not, and no reason why you would unless you saw the one game he was great in … or was he? The Redskins line he ran behind would have made Kadeem Carey get 215 yards in that Superbowl (or whatever it was). Texan-sized holes they were. Canyons to run through for whomsoever the Skins chose to carry the rock that day. Was it George Rogers he replaced? Anyway, he never did anything before or afterwards – his name is only known and remembered because of that line.

    I don’t believe Matt has ever had a line in front of him worth talking about, and only Barry Sanders or maybe Walter didn’t need one of those. So you’ve done the best you could do, Matty, I’m sorry.

    Still trade you in a heartbeat for a nice second round pick though. Jus’ bidniz !

    Well, at least I won’t have to waste my evening watching the Super Bowl now. Off to mountains for me!
