      Worst. First. Erra.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Well done to the Pumas … they’ll give Australia a game – great team, beautiful distribution. That’s their second semis I think. They were third one year.

      • Trac

        Poor showing for the land of the little people. Oh well, they weren’t getting past the Aussies anyhow.

  • The Yes Guy

    YES

  • T’Challa

    A zero win team is desperate. A desperate team scares me.

    • Big Mike

      Everything scares me about this years Bears’ team. Bagging a couple wins, has simply made me less afraid. At the beginning of the year I was afraid of 0-15 and getting blown out every week. Now I’m afraid that we’ll have more injuries and simply lose a close ball game. So that’s progress.

      • T’Challa

        By comparison this year’s team I feel a lot more confident about than last year’s team. I actually believe the coaching staff have a good enough plan to put us in a situation to win whereas last year, my thought was how bad are we going to look while lacking a good game plan and the lack of talented players to execute it.

        • Big Mike

          2014 team is not allowed for comparison purposes. That team was shit, because the HC was a sissy, who crapped his pants on game day.

          • T’Challa

            True!

          • CanadaBear

            He NEVER shit the bed in practice. Always a champ at practice!

          • Big Mike

            My blood pressure goes up a couple points thinking about that douche.

          • CanadaBear

            I wanted to believe his success in the CFL would translate to the NFL. Right after he was hired Tim Brown (the old Oakland WR) couldn’t believe he was hired to be a HC. He didn’t come right out and say it but you knew he meant that Nessman was a complete cream puff and not a leader of men. That always bothered me because you never hear that about a HC hire. With each odd move or quote from Nessman, Tim Brown’s words were louder and louder in my head. At some point, I knew Brown was right and was horrified Nessman was our HC.

          • Big Mike

            Enough I say. No more talk of this imposter from the strange land to the north ☺

  • Big Mike

    Yesterday we were having a discussion about Good/Great Head Coaches and it led to a discussion of a Coach’s role. This started with a discussion of Lovie Smith being a terrible HC. I defended Lovie vehemently. My points were he resurrected the franchise from the ashes of Wanstedt and Jauron, he created an identity for the team, his players busted their asses for him, and I was always proud that he was our HC. His biggest flaw was that he had no ability to identify/recruit a quality OC. Other’s questioned his clock management and challenge record. After watching College Football yesterday, using the logic the thread from yesterday, Jim Harbaugh is a bad coach, because he screwed the pooch at the end of the Michigan, Michigan State game. Point being game management vs program building. Which is it?

    • T’Challa

      I think a lot of people get confused in the difference between ggod and great. Lovie and Harbaugh are good H/C. Bellichek and Walsh were great H/C

      • Big Mike

        Bellicheat, is also a good GM. Walsh, I don’t know so much about. The debate started out about Ditka/Lovie

        • T’Challa

          I always thought Lovie was placed in bad situations when it came to finding a good OC.

          • MB30SD

            Smh

      • SC Dave

        I will never concede that a habitual cheater is a great coach.

    • MB30SD

      Harbaugh will have that team in the finals next year if not blow it all up outright. While his clock management might have been suspect, the punter doesn’t muffin that and games over. #18 beating #5. In the first year of a massive org rebuild. Come. On. Mike.

      No, lovie was/is a good dude, he’s a terrible head coach. He motivates men, and lucked out to get who he got from an even worse gm. Can you imagine what that roster would have done for a bellicheat… or even a fox? Lovie is cronyism personified, instead of the best he got his pals. Dude wasn’t a savior, he was a very lucky babysitter. .. and who do you think you owe our current wholesale rebuild to mike?

      …lovie smith and… I can’t bear to type his name.

      Beardown!!! Lions dead!

      • Big Mike

        I’m clearly on the side of the HC as a program builder. It wasn’t the punt, it was the clock management before the punt. He called timeout before punting.

        I won’t ever agree with you on Lovie. So we’ll just leave it at that. The talent on that team was good, not great. Never had WRs and QBs at the same time. Never had a decent offense period, during the years they had an above average line. Defense was very good personnel, but the list for Canton has 1 name on it. That’s it.

        The rebuild is due to the Bears not restocking the shelves and chasing a title with a team that got old. Still went 10 and 6 with an old ass team. Lovie did in fact rebuild the Bears. They were 11-21 the 2 years prior to Lovie getting to town. They were not as sorry as last year, but they were blown out with increasing regularity.

        Now, I think Fox is a cut or two above Lovie. But to say Lovie was terrible HC, is simply not accurate.

        • MB30SD

          Hmmmmm, so without all the talent you get what you have in tampa. Tell me more about that.

          And who is a terrible coach in your mind.

          • Big Mike

            Tampa was in much worse shape, but I have to admit his progress there is blowing up my argument. Here’s my perspective, I was where most of the younger guys on this blog were after the 2014 season, right before Lovie came in. He fixed that. So he gets hero points. I still believe he will turn Tampa around. He’s not a terrible coach, I would have loved to put it on the line for a man like that. With that said I thought it was time for him to go when he left.

            Fox on the other hand, if borderline great. If he pulls this off with Bears and gets a SB victory, he goes in the discussion with the top coaches. Maybe not the mutli superbowl guys but certainly near there, having constructed 3 rebuilds. That’s a coach.

            It’s all good. Probably reflecting my own values here. As a guy who’s coached 8th graders for the last ten years, wins and losses don’t go the top of the priority list. Building a solid program that competes, and gets more out of the talent it has, works hard and respects the game, those are things at the top of my list. W/L record follows. Eventually if it doesn’t you get the boot.

          • CanadaBear

            I agree with you about Lovie but he certainly never thought outside the box. He was very simple and straightforward. That’s one of the reasons his players were so loyal. If you took 2 teams with equal skill Lovie could beat everyone except the creative coaches. He was always about 2 tiers below those guys. Fox is somewhere between Lovie and those top guys.

          • Big Mike

            And it’s why he had to go. He didn’t get better as a coach. Good program builder, great for the young guys. too inflexible in his approach.

            I agree with you about Fox. If Fox brings it home (SB Win), he goes up in tier just below Belichick, Walsh etc. (you ever notice how the great coaches all have the top QBs of their day). Makes what Chuck Noll did, even more remarkable. Bradshaw was a good, not great QB. Might not even have been good had he landed in New Orleans (see Archie Manning)

          • MB30SD

            First, I think lovie will sink that program until he’s shitcanned sometime next year when they get another high-picks draft and still are bottom of the barrel.

            I think that’s awesome, Mike. good for you. But this isn’t HS ball, or even college ball… and practice… this sure ain’t practice! You get paid MILLIONS of dollars to WIN in the NFL. Period.

            Thanks for the backhanded ‘compliment’ about my morals. Just because I like boobies?! That hurt mike.

          • Big Mike

            Who doesn’t love a nice set. When men disagree and need to back up to find common ground, starting with boobs is the go to. 🙂

            I understand the NFL is only about wins. Lovie may have peaked with that SB appearance. Good for him. By now he the Bucanneers should be showing signs of progress. But again the offensive side is just not getting better.

            I don’t think we evaluate Lovie much differently, we just put a different weight on things. In the end the W/L record either gets better in TB or his legacy is sealed as a mid – tier coach who may or may not have been responsible for turning the Bears around.

        • AlbertInTucson

          He called timeout before punting after running the game clock down as far as possible. What’s wrong with that?

          • CanadaBear

            Picky, picky, picky!

          • Big Mike

            Nothing. My apologies, I was in a bar watching. My entire point was just destroyed. Go Bears. Lions Dead. 🙂

          • AlbertInTucson

            NP. Been there.

            I just watched it again.

            If the punter just FALLS on the ball, for that matter if ANYBODY just falls on the ball, it’s at the Michigan 40 or 41. That would have left MSU and their struggling-this-season kicker with a 58 or 59 yard FG attempt.

            INTO a significant breeze.

            Not Bloody likely, mate.

            So, ONE mistake wasn’t enough to lose that game. That first one had to be COMPOUNDED by popping the ball into the air so it could be plucked by a Spartan and run back.

            Similar to Garo Ypremian handing the Redskins their only points of SB VII when he tried to throw a pass after a botched FG attempt. If Garo just eats the ball, and takes the loss the Dolphins probably win that game 14-0. instead of 14-7.

            That did add SOME drama to the quest for the perfect season, but the Redskin offense was over-matched against the “No-name’ defense which was all over Larry Brown and in Billy Kilmer’s face all day.

          • Big Mike

            Big Mike last seen.slinking away while backing down from his point made loudly on a pedestal….. Bear the fuck down

      • AlbertInTucson

        The Michigan team was BAD last year. Harbaughhas made the relevant and he’s doing the bulk of it with his predecessor’s, Brady Hoke, personnel.

        • MB30SD

          exactly Al… I think he’s a Type-A freak like everyone else, but there’s no denying that he’s an amazing football coach… if you base your analysis on you know… wins.

    • BearDown100393

      The downward slide began after Rivera left.

    • Trac

      Lovie is a nowhere man, going nowhere. He’s sitting at a bus stop waiting on a bus that will never come.

      • Big Mike

        Aw man.. C’mon. I’m going to have to double down on my support for Lovie and Tampa now.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Alshon !!

        • Trac

          What’s a syllable? Can I eat them? He he.

      • willbest

        I want see more from Langford and Jeffery, Royal, and Bellamy, and that has nothing whatsoever to do with my opponent having Forte and Bennett

        • Big Mike

          They should pound the rock all day, Bennet, Royal, underneath and slant routes with Jeffery and Wilson stretching it out, but mostly running routes, until BAM 80 yard bomb from cutler. Jeffery draws a double team underneath and wilson streaks free.

        • Irish Sweetness

          I want to see anything from Jeffrey.

          Maybe a nice long opening 8 minute drive with a quick strike to AJ in the endzone.

  • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

    I’m not a huge college football fan. But damn there were some finishes yesterday. That Michigan ending was one for the ages. And that game earlier in the week when the guy catches the halfback pass behind his defenders back? Amazing.

    • AlbertInTucson

      That was a Stanford receiver vs. UCLA on Thursday.

      Crazy.

  • Big Mike

    Defensive end Jared Allen, slowed by a pinched nerve in his back, has also been ruled out and won’t make the trip.

    Shipped out, just in time. Acho way better suited and delivering in a way Allen would never have reached.

    • willbest

      Just in time would have been before we paid hem his 11 million roster bonus

      • Big Mike

        I don’t worry about the money. Got something back for him the wheels might be falling off of him. Good in season move. Doesn’t happen a lot.

  • Big Mike

    Last thought here until tomorrow (unless something spectacular happens)

        Lions are a team that if you can punch them in the nose, they will panic. It seems nonsensical to not throw the first punch. Also its not like we have more than 1 player on D that is pro bowl worthy.

  • willbest

    Nice of the Bears to let the Lions run the ball.

  • beninnorcal

  • McManis might just suck at nickle. That was a concern of mine heading into the game.

    • willbest

      He is going to make me regret benching him at the rate he is going

      • EnderWiggin

        It would have been hard to have him in the lineup this week.

      • NB is playing him.
        He might be conservative in life, but in FF, he’s a gambling man!

  • beninnorcal

    Is Alshon just winded? They’re easing him in? He was sidelined those last two plays

    • Yeah. It takes most football players like two games to get back into “game shape”. Same thing I saw with Foster and McCoy.

      Though he does look a lil round

    • EnderWiggin

      Probably the first time he has sprinted in 5 weeks or so.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Looks fat.

  • Irish Sweetness

    It was painful to see Europe the first time around, it’s just sad seeing them now in that G***o ad.

    THAT is the Lions we remember

    Also just noticed something. Does the Fox NFL Robot play for the Lions? He appears to be in their colors.

  • Bender McLugh

    No fumble to see here, move along

      Almost a heart attack was seen over here.

    Run it three times.

    • willbest

      Don’t need to. Go Langford

  • Irish Sweetness

    Ha! Who has Langford?

  • RenoBear

    Time for the Lions to become the Bears ‘boo boo kitty fuck’

    • EnderWiggin

      Babyface is under pressure now. He’s going to throw one right to Porter.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Now let’s kick the shit out of them.

  • Bender McLugh

    Was that a new formation?

    • willbest

      Hadn’t seen it before, but then I don’t watch and rewatch games.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Hot tub time machine formation. Back to 1984.

    • Sure was. Gase is the man.
      Can’t believe ppl were bitching about him earlier

      • willbest

        I didn’t like the idea of him as a HC because he spent his time with Peyton. But I liked him as OC precisely because he was around Peyton.

          Either way, DO SOMETHING

    Kyle Fuller believes the position of the football and what the QB is doing are irrelevant to his job. Arizona DBs all watch the QB.

    • EnderWiggin

      We need to get that boy some rearview mirrors.

    Two dops in the EZ for Bennett today.

    • Bender McLugh

      That last drop looked like a great play by the LB

  • Bender McLugh

    Tresticles call that goal line sequence?

  • WHY throw it to Bennett who can’t catch a cold in traffic?

  • Trac

    I almost ended up with Scottish egg on my face. Well played Scotland, you almost gave me a heart attack.

  • RenoBear

    So the only pass play from the 5 yard line is ‘force it through the tiniest window to Martellus’? He did that last time also, when marquess was wide open on the goal line

    • BillW

      Thinking the same. Low percentage plays down there. No confusion to spring someone open. There may be a Gase weakness showing. Hope not

      • SC Dave

        Jay has forced small windows all along. Nothing to see here.

  • beninnorcal

    Nice to at least see the Bear O look semi-competent on a scoring drive without Forte.

  • Bender McLugh

    No runs in that sequence, Forte getting rest.

    • SC Dave

      And we got three,so it could be worse!!

  • Pissed Off

    Need to run some tackling drills in practice

  • Acho needs to make that fucking tackle.

  • Cubsnlinux

    That should have been a sack. Brutal…Whiff after whiff.

    • Bender McLugh

      Lucky run by China Doll

  • Trac

    Bears are hanging in there. Looking forward to some 2nd half heroics by Cutty again. No worries mate.

  • Cubsnlinux

    Need to get a stop here 3rd and 5

    • Cubsnlinux

      Never mind. Calvin Johnson regaining his step against our secondary

  • Bender McLugh

    Single coverage on Calvin……oye

    • The GP

      He makes the lesbian stats happen

    • Cubsnlinux

      No issue. Let him beat us and not Stafford with read option.

  • RenoBear

    Caldwell has a TERRIBLE mustache

    • Cubsnlinux

      Goes well with the team he coaches

  • wreckinball

    I playing well D is making Stafford look good
    Cmon now

  • The GP

    We needed that Jones pic

  • Shady

    When you’re blitzing and still not getting to the QB the secondary is exposed and bad things happen. I know he doesn’t have jack to work with, but Fangio needs to figure something out.

    • Bender McLugh

      Second half should be better, Fangio magic

  • wreckinball

    Time for Stafford to do something stupid

  • Pissed Off

    So is the 2nd half when the lions start to suck?

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    YES!!!

  • Shady

    LOLOINS

  • wreckinball

    Nice just what we needed

  • EnderWiggin

    Welcome to the Bears, Anderson!

  • RenoBear

    That’s a pick fuckers!!!! Fuck you Tate

  • Shady

    Fuller making a play!

  • The GP

    Shae would have watched that fall to the ground

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      Shae?

      • The GP

        A chicken coop farm boy somebody thought could play football

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          he is not playing today.

          • Huge Bear’s Penis

            my bad i miss read your first post. read ‘should’ instead of ‘would’

  • EnderWiggin

    THAT is why we deferred.

  • Cubsnlinux

    Welcome to the 2015 season.. Kyle Fuller.

  • Bender McLugh

    What will they call on that shit? Didn’t get two steps down and ball came out. Gotta be a pick

  • BillW

    Could be a td. Hope not but I’d be pissed if that were taken from us

    • BillW

      Thought so.

  • Refs fucking owe us like 4 TDs this season

  • Bender McLugh

    MOTHER FUCK

  • Cubsnlinux

    Wow.. How is that a TD???

  • Shady

    FFS

  • RenoBear

    OMG WHAT THE FUCK????!!!?

  • EnderWiggin

    BULLFUCKINGSHIT!!

  • The GP

    OH SHUT UP

  • EnderWiggin

    Every fekkin week.

  • RenoBear

    I am fucking SICK

  • wreckinball

    Horseshit maintain control he didn’t

  • what the FUCK. Every week we’re playing against the refs

  • beninnorcal

    That call is garbage. These refs are garbage. The refs are gifting the Lions one for that Seattle game

  • Pissed Off

    Guess that was payback for the old Calvin td years ago

  • so they had enough evidence to OVERTURN the original call? BULLSHIT

  • Bender McLugh

    Well if this didn’t energize da beloved nothing will.

    DON’T CARE.

    BEAR DOWN!!!!!

  • SC Dave

    A little surprised they saw enough to overturn

    • willbest

      Vegas!

  • wreckinball

    Awful call

  • RenoBear

    He didn’t even get a second foot down before it came out!!! I’m fucking sick.

    • Pissed Off

      Doesn’t need it …..still a terrible call

      • Bender McLugh

        “A football move” is still in the language of the catch rule, two steps

        • Bender McLugh

          And he didn’t get two before ball was out

        • Pissed Off

          Don’t think he needs it when it’s for a td…..possession and the ball across the goalline

          • Bender McLugh

            Apparently not. B. S.

    • willbest

      If he has possession and breaks the plane, and isn’t going to the ground its a TD… So I guess the ruled he wasn’t going to the ground.

      • BillW

        That’s the point. Surprised pierra didn’t see it

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    53 seconds for Cutty to drive and score

  • Pissed Off

    Would be nice if the d wasn’t a saloon door all day also ……maybe we can actually play d in the 2nd half

  • The GP

    Just go jump ball to Alshon

    • Bender McLugh

      He tends to win those

  • Bender McLugh

    Lions showing some fine Barcelona FC skeelz

  • Viva

    FUCK ME

  • Cubsnlinux

    Why did they burn the clock?

    • EnderWiggin

      Trying to avoid another ref-fuckin’

  • The GP

    Fuck Detroit

    • Viva

      Thrice

  • RenoBear

    Fuck these fuckin lions, their terrible uniforms, their stupid fans. BEAR FOWN. Defense shows up 2nd half. I cannot believe the refs found enough ‘evidence ‘ to overturn that call

    • SC Dave

      Agree on the evidence, but no excuses. Kick ass!

  • BillW

    Gotta play angry on D second half

  • Cubsnlinux

    NFL refs are worse than home plate umpires calling balls and strikes and it’s not even close.

    • Bender McLugh

      Robots

      • Bender McLugh

        Was that racist? I meant AI of course

      • willbest

        Makes no sense that robots haven’t replaced umpires

        • Cubsnlinux

          Baseball is decades behind in technology. Replay was introduced only recently. Unless something drastic happens I don’t see robots calling balls and strikes for the next 5-10 years

  • Pissed Off

    Started drinking at half time last week and it worked so let’s give fireball a try

    • SC Dave

      Do it!!

      • Pissed Off

        Thought it was working there.

    • Scharfinator

      Must get higher proof.

      • Pissed Off

        It’s pretty weak but I love to sip it in the rocks…love that burn

  • Fuck these twats. I hope Gase and Cutty flip out their cocks and slap their fat lesbo faces.

    #nsfw

  • We need a pass rush. Can’t just leave that douche clean in the pocket.

    • Bender McLugh

      True story, I expect many sacks in this second half. MUST.

  • Carl LaFong

    Fuck NFL Officiating.
    Bear ball on the twenty. Eat some shit Roger.

  • RenoBear

    Guess it’s the Fat Lesbian show today according to all the ‘reporters ‘

  • Carl LaFong

    Dean Blandino is a fucking asshole and full of shit.
    Thanks for your horseshit “explantion” you jagoff.
    How about just saying we make up “explanations” as we go along asshole.

  • RenoBear

    Perfect throw. Catch it, Alshon

  • willbest

    Wilson looking like a #2 if they don’t want to pay Jeffery

  • willbest

  • The GP

    What a fucking ignorant throw

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      Bench him

      • EnderWiggin

        lol

  • RenoBear

    What the fuck?

  • Fuck.

  • SC Dave

    Ugly play

  • wreckinball

    I just thought cutlers playing a great game oops

  • EnderWiggin

    Terrible call. Terrible throw.

    • SC Dave

      At least the latter

  • Pissed Off

    And can we stop running up the gut already. Get forte going in the pass game if nothing else

    • willbest

      80 yard pass to Jeffery. Book it.

  • Gase should run draw plays with Langford in redzone. FUCK.

  • Carl LaFong

    Offensive pass interference … Fuck this shit… I’m going to the Tennis Channel — Novak (the hated Serb) kicked ass again in China…I will then masturbate to any WTA match that’s on…

    • willbest

      Even if its the Williams sisters?

      • Carl LaFong

        Sure — cyber pussy is pussy even at seventy-five years old…

    • SC Dave

      Have a nice day

      • Carl LaFong

        Amy Shumer
        Amy Shumer

        • willbest

          She is a bit meaty for my tastes

        • Carl LaFong

          She IS honest and gives us a notion of the “female mind”…Somewhat.

  • RenoBear

    Terrible throw. But seriously that’s your play calling at the goal line? Run up the middle and a fade to your #1?

  • Pissed Off

    1 for 4 in the red one?

  • RenoBear

    Fuuckkk wanted that fumble

  • EnderWiggin

    Don’t forget! Cutty plays better after a turnover.

    • willbest

      Is that our new thing?

      • EnderWiggin

        Yeah =(

  • RenoBear

    McPhee!!!! Nice pressure!!!

  • Irish Sweetness

    Alshon’s got to turn his head to the ball there though.

  • great stand by D. O gotta shake it off

    • SC Dave

      This!!

  • RenoBear

    Ok here it comes. The ass kicking shall commence

  • Loins running out of RBs

  • SC Dave

    Sittkng with three Lions fans. Itz kinda fun, because we’re all geezers and have seen plenty of bad teams and bad plays

  • Carl LaFong

    The Red Zone at least allows some Shadenfreude.
    Pain and suffering is so much easier when “shared”.

  • willbest

    Surprised at the Steelers D. Holding the Cards to 10 points so far.

  • Pissed Off

    We can move the ball just can’t finish

  • willbest

    Wow if we owe this game to special teams..

  • EnderWiggin

    Yeah!

  • SC Dave

    Jay! Arghh!!

    Forte may have had zone

    • Bender McLugh

      So over thrown

  • Bender McLugh

    Whi is 11?!+!?

  • Scharfinator

    Holy shit this is an ugly ass game.

    • SC Dave

      Too many holds

    • Bender McLugh

      Norris Division!

  • willbest

    LONG!!!!!?!?!?!?!

  • EnderWiggin

    I hate refs.

  • Pissed Off

    Stop with the penalties asswipes

  • RenoBear

    ‘Like ants to the picnic’ wonder how long he’s been waiting to use that one

  • Bender McLugh

    ZERO hold on that

  • willbest

    Jay looks like he is in fuck it mode

  • SC Dave

    Nice giving lankford a shot, but matt likely w o uld have scored on that. Heigbt matters.

    • EnderWiggin

      Height, hands, experience…

  • Scharfinator

    I think the Lions are going to let us hang around till the 4th quarter, Jay will wake up, we win.

  • Pissed Off

    Can we just Get a td already how many times down here with a fg or turnover….fuck

    • willbest

      Solution. 50+ yard bomb to Wilson.

  • Shady

    1/5 in the red zone now.

    • Bender McLugh

      How many runs? Something is up

  • Bender McLugh

    So Robbie has to be reclaiming at least 2nd best all time FG percentage

    • willbest

      He sucked pretty bad the past season and a half. Long row to hoe.

      • Bender McLugh

        Truet

  • Pissed Off

    Most frustrating game I’ve watched……..since last week

    • SC Dave

      Lol. Cutler just setting it up for jeff to gush all over the blog again

      • Bender McLugh

        Ron J?

  • RenoBear

    Why the fuck do we suck soooo bad in the fucking redzone?? Score fucking TD’s!!!!

  • Cubsnlinux

    These Chevvy ads are boring. They need to change their logo to get going. It sucks.

    • The GP

      Chevy – our ignitions dont kill you… anymore….

    • Irish Sweetness

      Seeing Peyton do the Nationwide ads …. Jesus.

  • EnderWiggin

    I seen 3 holds on that play. No flag.

  • wreckinball

    Back to the awful D toast!

  • beninnorcal

    Sorry, guys, this one is over. Lions gonna put us away here.

    • Bender McLugh

      Can’t believe that

      • beninnorcal

        I just never felt good about this game. Obviously things could be totally different, but I don’t like it.

        • Carl LaFong

          Dean Blandino and the NFL officiating office will give us this one with seconds left and a horrendous call. No problem.

    • Pissed Off

      We will just drive it down to the 10 and a penalty and a fg…..or turnover

  • Carl LaFong

    Did McManus order a pizza on that pass play…Nice hustle…

  • McManis needs to be benched.

    • Pissed Off

      He got picked he was held up on the replay

      • Carl LaFong

        The dreaded brush block…Wow…

  • BillW

    I have no idea what happened to the bears. Jeff wondered how good they are. Answer is not very good yet

    • Scharfinator

      All these back to back wins got us taking keg stands of koolaid. This is a come back to reality game. Hopefully we win it anyway!

  • willbest

    The Zebra giveth and the Zebra taketh away

  • EnderWiggin

    Still a one possession game.

  • wreckinball

    Have to score a TD period

    • Yup. Dreadfully ineffecient in the redzone against a team that was dreadfully inefficient defending redzone

      • Pissed Off

        Great combo

    • Pissed Off

      Might need 2 before it’s over

  • beninnorcal

    Alright, alright, they SHOULDA put us away there but we are very much alive. Now if we could just get into the fucking endzone.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Let’s go Cutty !!

  • BillW

    Not over

  • Pissed Off

    Who said Bennett doesn’t break tackles all day

    • willbest

      Irish!

      • Irish Sweetness

        He was awesome there on 3rd down …

        • Pissed Off

          Yeah great grab but If he would have caught it he would have broke some tackles

  • Pissed Off

    If the bears lose someone better grill gase on why he kept running up the gut wasting downs. Also get the fucking play off Jay.

  • RenoBear

    Fuck you Martellus

  • wreckinball

    Game over

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      Game back on?

    • Trac

      Put away the phone before you hurt yourself. Please!

  • beninnorcal

    Yeeeesssss!!!!

  • SC Dave

    We need a te that can catch

  • beninnorcal

    Hit someones leg

  • EnderWiggin

    Holy Specials!!

  • beninnorcal

    Lions keep Loining themselves

  • willbest

    Way to fucking take our TD away

    • beninnorcal

      Bullshit, thatwas indeed a TD, why’d they blow the whistle?!!

      • EnderWiggin

        Fuckin refs man…

        • beninnorcal

          Thats what I’m saying

  • wreckinball

    Wait for the zebras

  • EnderWiggin

    Why the whistle?

  • RenoBear

    Yelp touched Kyle fullers brother LOL

  • Pissed Off

    Destiny?

    • beninnorcal

      Where’s that yes guy to say- YES!!!?

  • Cubsnlinux

    I am sorry Bennett has butter fingers. He is having trouble making easy catches

  • Irish Sweetness

    Welcome Chris Prosinski.

  • beninnorcal

    These refs will be the end of these Bears

  • Cubsnlinux

    This is getting comical now. Why did the refs blow the whistle?

    • willbest

      Vegas!

    • EnderWiggin

      Fuckin refs man….

  • Pissed Off

    We r lucky the lions are the lions

  • EnderWiggin

    Royal took one in the nuts.

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Gase, what the fuck?

  • willbest

    So they take away the TD and then this shit?

  • beninnorcal

    So far the MVP’s for the Lions are wearing stripes

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Not impressed gase

    • beninnorcal

      How bout now?

  • beninnorcal

    There we go

  • willbest

    I weep as he sits on my bench

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Alshon apologized

  • Cubsnlinux

    Welcome back Alshon Jeffrey. Way to make up for that stupid penalty.

    • EnderWiggin

      plural

    • Bender McLugh

      Was NOT a penalty

      • Cubsnlinux

        I saw he tried to grab a defender running away from him?

        • Bender McLugh

          I saw him try, and whiff

  • Cubsnlinux

    Why not go for 2 there?

    • willbest

      That’s what the Fox says

    • EnderWiggin

      Fox is bringing his mentality to this team. Trust the Defense, we’ll get another shot.

  • Trac

    I guess our confidence is at an all time low on 2 put conversions.

    • We’d probably get another penalty.

    • willbest

      Considering we got boned by the Zebra’s last week and they seem to be playing at the wheel of fortune this week, I don’t blame them

  • Pissed Off

    I get there is lots of time but by the same token if we don’t get the 2 points there is still lots of time

  • Viva

    I would have gone for 2

  • Albino Lovie gonna trust the D. Or the Loins to implode. Which ever comes first

  • beninnorcal

    Ok, c’mon Lions with one more TO.

  • Scharfinator

    Plenty of time.

    • Bender McLugh

      Exactly

  • wreckinball

    Game back on but wtf go for two

  • Moon over my Hammy, Jefferies!

  • Scharfinator

    Time for 4th Quarter Jay. WOOWOO

    • Bender McLugh

      Waffle Jay

      • Scharfinator

        HAha yes, time for flesh cannon of doom.

  • beninnorcal

    Stafford fumble..

  • Bender McLugh

    Achooooooooo

  • beninnorcal

    Ok, we’ll take that

  • willbest

    Baller play Sam

  • Viva

    ACHO LIBRE!!!

  • willbest

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

  • EnderWiggin

    Yeah!

  • Cubsnlinux

    There is that stupid flip from Stafford

  • Irish Sweetness

    MY BOY !!!!!!!!!

  • Pissed Off

    Lets do the stomp on them thing now

  • Loins imploding came first!

  • EnderWiggin

    We need a long 9 minute drive with points.

    • Cubsnlinux

      2nd and goal. Can’t have a long drive from there.

    • Bender McLugh

      Haven’t run allot this game, now’s the time

  • Cubsnlinux

    Lions must want that #1 pick real bad. They are taking no chances

  • willbest

    If Jeffery gets this TD I will figuratively slit my wrists

  • The GP

    flag

    • EnderWiggin

      That ref is a flaggot.

  • willbest

    Wow that was a BS flag

  • Cubsnlinux

    Ha ha HOLDING on defense. Detroit is now in full self destruct mode

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    You have to be more creative thsn that. Run to the rdge

    • willbest

      That is what they did

  • Bender McLugh

    MAKE GOOD CHOICES!

  • The GP

    Wow. RUnning out of trips left and it WORKED

  • Viva

    That was a great play call to Forte

  • willbest

    Bengals are legit apparently

    • Bender McLugh

      Crumble crumble I the second half

  • Viva

    Cutty is a stud!

  • Scharfinator

    Lead us to victory Jay Jay!

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    That is creative. That throws the D off

    • willbest

      They are going to need to run the screen to the trips at some point because so far they keep running it

  • BillW

    Bears aren’t bad either. No quit. Helps Lions being the Lions

  • Viva

    Forte is a stud

  • Pissed Off

    Yes forte my favorite player…..and the dive for 2 more

  • Cubsnlinux

    Now we need a lockdown on D and a long drive burning the clock.

  • Pissed Off

    Forget what I said gase keep running up the middle

  • beninnorcal

    If it weren’t for that bullshit reversed call to end the 2nd qtr, we’d be about to put this away right now.

  • Bender McLugh

    Hello Mr. Fangio, we like you

    • beninnorcal

      Specials has come thru huge so far

      • Bender McLugh

        Right?! Who knew

        • Scharfinator

          I was posting about our ST coach being an established guy at least – hell of a lot better than Camel Ass.

          • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

            So you jinxed it

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    One more stop and score

    • beninnorcal

      That was a good start there

  • willbest

    /clap for Royal

    • EnderWiggin

      They had to extract a nut.

    • beninnorcal

      The injury Gods are on our side so far(knock on wood)

  • beninnorcal

    No R foot there= no first

  • beninnorcal

    Bullshit

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Can’t give up 3rd and 20….turning point

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Weird feeling about this drive. Need to force 4th down

    • Bender McLugh

      Done dodda

  • Bender McLugh

    Wait was that Ratliff

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    End it on O

  • willbest

  • SC Dave

    Wow

  • Irish Sweetness

    Saw that coming. Fuck.

  • Scharfinator

    Bum bumm bumm bummmmm Bears gonna win.

  • willbest

    Wouldn’t be a bears game without a Fuller PI

  • Bender McLugh

    I SAID. Hello mr Fangio………???!

  • Scharfinator

    Bears win bears win bears win its happening I feel it in me bones

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    If you are a professional coach don’t you assume they will fake in that situation? Why even have a returner???

  • Irish Sweetness

    Fake FG

  • beninnorcal

    Loins just submitted

  • Scharfinator

    Time to ice it. Jay will scramble on the last 3rd for the last Lions time out for first down. Kneel it out.

  • beninnorcal

    Who in the hell didn’t see the fake punt coming? Cuz I sure did

    • Pissed Off

      The bears

      • beninnorcal

        Good point, lemme re-phrase: How?!

      • Bender McLugh

        Boooooooooooooooo

  • Pissed Off

    Lots of time can’t let off the gas here with 3 non creative runs. Lets do the wildcat again

    • beninnorcal

      Agreed, need a couple firsts

    • Pissed Off

      Or do exactly that

  • Trac

    Really can’t believe the Lions didn’t go for it. They’ll never touch the ball again.

  • The GP

    THe FG was bad coaching

    • Bender McLugh

      Agree, but it does bake sense off your team is the Pats

  • beninnorcal

    I vote Bears stat agressive here

    • Scharfinator

      Throw a bomb to Bellamy.

      • EnderWiggin

        Special Teams hero today. He deserves it.

      • beninnorcal

        Where is Yes guy today, he should be all over posts like yours here

  • beninnorcal

    Oh god, just get a fucking 1st here

  • Scharfinator

    Roll out Jay, have him scramble. I’m telling you.

  • willbest

    Sometimes I hate fox

    • Bender McLugh

      Talent, not Fox

  • EnderWiggin

    Fake punt incoming?

    • beninnorcal

      YESSS!!

      • EnderWiggin

        LOL, No!

        • beninnorcal

          It was a bad joke

  • beninnorcal

    I don’t like it, guys. Tons of time left.

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Not even a quick pass to a slot wr or forte to get it outside the tackle box?

    • beninnorcal

      I don’t get it, I guess you force them to use the last timeout but I feel like we could pick it up

    • EnderWiggin

      Three up the gut. I don’t get it.

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Jesus gase

    • Scharfinator

    Bullllshit

  • Trac

    C’mon D, don’t fail me now!

    • Scharfinator

      We just need Stafford to give our boys a chance. He’s willing.

  • Pissed Off

    This is on the coaches right now

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    Pussy coaching boys.

    • Bender McLugh

      No push from the o line

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    You have to tackle a guy on a 7yd dumpoff

  • Cubsnlinux

    Are the Bears trying to give Lions their first win of the season? That was a bad bad offensive drive.

  • Pissed Off

    If we lose big picture this is baaaad

  • Trac

    They still have to get 6. Plenty of reason to hope.

    • Bender McLugh

      Yes please I’ll have another

  • beninnorcal

    Bears should already be using there THREE timeouts

    • Cubsnlinux

      Bad bad bad

  • Cubsnlinux

    Bears Lose. And they deserve the loss

  • Scharfinator

    We should be using our time outs.

    • Bobby Douglass

      We should throw the ball on 3rd and 4.

  • Big Mike

    Gase sucked a cock right there

  • Pissed Off

    Fucking timeout Fox u retard

    • Bender McLugh

      Injury yo

      • Pissed Off

        Way before that

  • beninnorcal

    Bears just waisted like 30 seconds of their remaing time to get a fg to tie

  • wreckinball

    Ok back to game over wtf first down was the game go for it you idiot

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    I’ll never understand those 3run calls

  • Pissed Off

    Timeouts should have been use after the catch to the 10 to give cutty time
    More horse shit coaching

  • Big Mike

    When did Lovie Smith show up to coach the Bears

  • beninnorcal

    Wow, what a meltdown by Fox and co. THREE timeouts with plenty of time and thet blow it

  • Irish Sweetness

    Did Fangio blitz Stafford today?

    • EnderWiggin

      Once or twice. And we got burnt.

  • SC Dave

    Fan duel rulez!

    • Shady

      Scam Duel ain’t bad, but Graft Kings is better.

  • EnderWiggin

    Do it! call grounding!

  • beninnorcal

    Brace yourself, everyone, imwe’re still screwed

  • Trac

    Remember, we are playing Detroit. Don’t go wobbly on me boys.

  • Shady

    So fucking bad.

  • willbest

    The shit

  • EnderWiggin

    I hate refs.

  • Irish Sweetness

    BULL. SHIT.

  • Scharfinator

    Stafford needs 8 tries.

  • beninnorcal

    Can’t even really blame the coaches in this one. Refs handed them the game MULTIPLE times

    • Scharfinator

      It’s all about that Vegas line.

  • Shady

    ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

  • willbest

    fart

  • beninnorcal

    2-4, gents. Off some bullshit

  • Pissed Off

    Where do i even start

  • Bobby Douglass

    ::sigh::

  • wreckinball

    Find a way to lose today

  • Irish Sweetness

    If the kick the XP we can win it.

  • beninnorcal

    At least these clowns won’t beat us at Soldier.

  • Scharfinator

    Despite the refs, if we aren’t so conservative with that last drive, we are fine.

  • beninnorcal

    Worst officiating ever.

    • EnderWiggin

      How does it get worse every week? How!?

  • willbest

    Bears will have 3 plays to go 55 yards

  • Bender McLugh

    This is all Cutlers fault

    • EnderWiggin

      We are going to have to watch the interception replay all fekkin week.

  • RenoBear

    FUCK THE REFS FUCK THIS COACHING DECISIONS….. AND FUCK THE FAT LESBIAN BITCH

    • BearDown100393

      Hillary hates football.

    Shouldn’t have come to this but glad this is happening

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    Cutty just bailed out stupid coaching decisions

    • beninnorcal

      Not too mention some terrible officiating

  • Bender McLugh

    Sherreeiiit

  • Trac

    These guys are gonna give me a heart attack.

    • beninnorcal

      Why does it have to be like this every week for like the last 5-10 years?

      • Trac

        I don’t know but it helps when we have the players.

  • Viva

    Cutty called heads…..and it was tails

    • Bobby Douglass

      You’re a 50/50 genius.

      • Viva

        Thanks.

  • Viva

    KILL KILL KILL

  • beninnorcal

    I’ll say it again: That reversed int at the ened of the 1st half was the difference in the game.

  • EnderWiggin

    No TD and we win.

  • wreckinball

    Win the toss please

    • EnderWiggin

      You take a bathroom break?

      • wreckinball

        Wtf are you talking about

  • willbest

    Pick 6 on the first play. Lets not make this stressful for the fans

      The only thing better than 4Q Cutty is OT Cutty.

  • Shady

    Exhale

  • RenoBear

    Sooo if you’re gonna run… Do something besides run between the tackles

    You know the refs are gonna fuck us.

    • SC Dave

    That is going to suck

    They need to go for it

  • beninnorcal

    Why is this being reviewed?

  • Scharfinator

    What is this pussy ass fucking approach.

  • Pissed Off

    We’re going to fucking tie.

    Or lose.

    Don’t worry, my predictions have been shit so far.

      Better than a loss

    No we’re not

  • Pissed Off

    Ok mcphee block time at will right

  • Bender McLugh

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Irish Sweetness

    An 0-5 team is better than us. That was sad.

    • Pissed Off

      Very sad indeed ….thanks a lot Obama….I mean gase

    • Pissed Off

      Yes we are nobettter than a 0 and 5 team how sad

    • Big Mike

      First remember last year Detroit was a playoff team/rising star. They were eliminated from the playoffs on a questionable call. Our 2 wins were by a total of 3 points.

      We had several terrible calls, most notably the phantom roughing the passer call.

      But on top of that starting with the last drive of the game the Bears ran 12 out of 15 plays.

      Adam Gase lost that ball game

      • Maddbearfan

        Yes he did..2:45 left in the game and you play it conservative buy running 3 run plays! WTF!!!! No you keep playing what has worked all game…not lay back and let the defense do it!!!

    • MB30SD

      Irish… speaking of better teams. WTF happened?!?! To argentina?!! aye laddie, tis a bit painful, no? smh.

  • Pissed Off

    71 total points

  • can’t go 12-4 without losing 4 times.

    • Bender McLugh

      Imeanright

  • Cubsnlinux

    Bears deserve to lose this game. I am not impressed by Fox’s game management. That game was there for the taking and they threw it away. Unreal.

    • Pissed Off

      100 percent agree. Maybe this is why Fox has never one a super bowl. Although i would pin more on gase

      • Bender McLugh

        Go away

        • Pissed Off

          Emotions are high right now

          • beninnorcal

            No, they’re actually really low.

          • Pissed Off

            Dictionary.com the word emotion

          • MB30SD

            Dictionary.com the word “won”?

          • Pissed Off

            I have no idea what you are getting at here

          • MB30SD

            hahaha, you spelled won, “one” in a post above. made me laugh

          • Pissed Off

            Hilarious

          • MB30SD

            agree

          • Pissed Off

            Almost as funny as Demarco Ryans…haha….made me lalz

          • MB30SD

            Nice! Glad to bring a little ray of sunlight into your life, seems like you could use as much as possible, huh?

            And some of these NFL players have some tricky names don’t they… maybe I’ll name my next born DeMarco Ryans. Has a nice ring to it.

          • Pissed Off

            Plenty of sunshine in my life just the occassional and equally annoying dark cloud….

          • MB30SD

            awwww… buck up camper! I’ll continue to try MY best to help keep the clouds away. ; )

        • Pissed Off

          Just dont read it If you don’t like it….I am never going away

  • Trac

    I can only handle a loss like that once every 2 or 3 years please.

  • RenoBear

    Oh man. I put this on some of the worst offensive play calling I’ve ever seen… I mean it’s like Gase went into turtle shell mode, retract the balls mode. I mean if you don’t have confidence in Cutler to make a play, what the fuck are you doing? Let the man make a play

    • Big Mike

      Unbelievable. It’s like his contract depended on running the ball X number of times

    • Agree. Cutler wasn’t airing it out and getting chunks at the end of regulation.
      In OT, Gase becomes flaccid.

    • Bender McLugh

      Seriously, but I personally chalk it up to personnel and Gase not trusting it

      • RenoBear

        I can see that, but continuous runs up the middle w forte? Run him off tackle or designed cutbacks, etc… Anything but that play call over and over

    • SC Dave

      More carping on play calling. … sigh. -execute*

      • RenoBear

        You know as well as I do that 3 runs up the middle NEVER works out well for us. Yes execute… But execute our worst play over and over? C’mon

        • SC Dave

          If they had passed and failed, you’d all be carpimg on that too. The main difference between idiotic and brilliant calls is execution.

          • EnderWiggin

            Did Halas say that? Or was that SC Dave?

          • BillW

            Have to agree with Reno. The old Lombardi thing about a play being unstoppable if you execute was always a fallacy. The Packer sweep would not have worked if they told the other team it was coming guaranteed. The other team would over stack that side

            Detroit was stuffing the middle. Once again I was screaming for play action on first down near the end zone especially

  • Bender McLugh

    Let’s over react! YEEEEEAAAAAH!!!

    • Pissed Off

      Yes i will until it stops hurting another few hours before I chill

      • Bender McLugh

        *hic*

        • Pissed Off

          At least I care

        • Pissed Off

          No idea what that means

  • EnderWiggin

    Dear Refs,
    What is defined as a catch?
    -Everyone.

    • Some of the worst reffing I have ever witnessed, and I witnessed plenty

      • RenoBear

        I don’t even have words for the ineptitude… That hold on lesbians bomb to Calvin was blatant… Among soooo many others. Fuuuuucccckkk

        • SC Dave

          Fan Duel Rulz!

      • RenoBear

        And it’s not even just calls against Bears… It’s just the whole flow of the game, just gross officiating throughout. And as a fan there’s no telling what the fuck they’ll call or their reasoning

      • CanadaBear

        Walt Coleman’s crews are notorious for being befuddled. It takes almost nothing to get any and all confused. Usually takes a couple minutes to sort out and they may or may not get it right. The Bears have already had this incompetent boob and Jeff Triplette. Ed Hochuli can’t be far behind. FUCK!

  • beninnorcal

    Hopefully we paid back Calvin Johnson’s TD drop call in full with this game.

  • beninnorcal

    I’m not even too mad, the Lions really didn’t deserve this one. We’ll beat them at home.

  • DaMurph

    I’m spent!!

    • Trac

      Hate losing games that we come from behind on, on the road in that fashion . What a ball buster.

  • wreckinball

    Shitty we grasped defeat from the jaws of victory
    OT play calling WTF
    Zebras hurt us maybe it will even out over time but today they hurt us

  • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

    🙁

  • Bender McLugh

    I will say again…..BOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • DaMurph

    The curse of Marc Trestman has hit the Ravens hard!

  • SC Dave

    Want to see shittyy refs? Watch them give the fudge another gamne.

  • Bender McLugh

    Don’t care

  • BillW

    Like Jeff said we still don’t know if the bears are good or not. I saw too much reliance on defense and not enough on offense

    • SC Dave

      Evidence points to “not”

      • BillW

        I think not as bad as we might think but not as good as we hoped

        Not one to blame refs but we did have several calls go against us that were debatable

        Then again Jeffery got away with opi probably

        • BerwynBomber

          We also caught a break with the illegal pick call on Megatron that took a DET TD off the board.

          It was a poorly officiated game … to say the least.

          • madscout12

            It got called on us too. When it hasn’t been called at all this year.

          • BillW

            And while it was heads up for sure by the bears, without TWO muffed punts we lose in regulation

            Though oddly without the grounding and 10 second runoff maybe we win in reglation

          • BerwynBomber

            DET had the TOTAL look of a poorly coached team.

          • BearDown100393

            And still won.

  • madscout12

    Reasons we lost this game:
    1. Defense: The lions came in rushing for UNDER 3 yards per carry. They rushed for 4.8 yards per carry this game. Stafford was an INT machine coming in. He threw 4 (3) TDs and 1 (2) INTs.

    2. Play calling: the bears ran for 2.9 yards per carry, but tried to rely on the run when they needed to win. And runs up the middle, not to the outside. After torching DET in the 4th, we go back to the run immediately to not lose the game.

    3. Refs: Gifted the Lions 10 points, at least. % of games that go the other way with a 10 point swing this year: 50% (not including ties). More for 17 point given with that Roughing the Passer call.

    4. Offensive Line: 2.9 yards per carry. Without their big free agent NT to plug holes. Inexcusable.

    • BerwynBomber

      1. Red Zone offense. We had four possessions in the red zone that resulted in three FGs and an INT. Nine points out of a potential 28. In a high scoring game that will usually bite you in the ass.

      The O-line’s pass protection was excellent, but yes, run blocking was poor.

      • madscout12

        I think that was more on playcalling than execution.

        Cutler’s pick was on execution. The rest were simply not setting guys up to succeed.

    • Irish Sweetness

      6 games in I am not on the Fangio train, regardless of personnel.

  • EnderWiggin

    I’m going to suffer all week for this loss – its still brewing in me.
    Man, that interception Jay threw took me by surprise. I couldn’t believe it! He makes the exact same throw to Forte last week after bobbling the ball and a DL hanging on to his ankles. Although, I still stand by my hypothesis: Jay plays better after a turnover.
    Run up the gut three times and punt in OT. Holy shit, are we in a 1980’s field position battle?
    The refs man… That late hit call was sickening.

    • madscout12

      And the INT to TD reversal.
      And the no call on holding to seal it.

      Gifted 10 points, absolutely gifted.

      But we couldn’t run the fucking ball and we couldn’t stop the run. You don’t usually win when that happens.

    • BerwynBomber

      The McPhee call was touchy as hell but that’s also the Brady rule. League won’t let you get near a QB’s knees. And they are probably going to get stricter on it given they missed a call on R-berger’s injury. Plus, Mariota was almost seriously injured today in the same fashion.

      That rule ain’t changing anytime soon.

    • Pissed Off

      It hurts bad you are not alone. This will sting for a while. Looking at the big picture this was ugly.

  • EnderWiggin

    Oh, I think Bennett will be OK. He is still fighting for every yard when he gets the ball. But since the Raiders game it seems that every time he is contested – he just can’t find the ball… Weird.

    • madscout12

      To be fair, his game is go up and get it. He hasn’t had too many go up and get it balls.

      He had two or three today that were reach out in front/behind and get it. And a few in the endzone where he was turned by the defender with no call.

      Our RZ offense sucks right now, and to cure it, we’ve got to use our size with Bennet and Jeffery. Throw the back shoulder and let these guys use their length.

      • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

        sorry man, he’s a tight end and shit is bouncing off of his hands, his bread basket, up high, down low, right to him, etc. It’s bad. He’s fucking tripping on turf too.

        • madscout12

          Truth. He has had his fair share of drops. Bad drops.

          He had one in the 4th of this game. Had 2 in the red zone.

          But they have not called plays for him to jump up in the back of the endzone and get the ball. Throws that he catches or go out the back of the endzone. Same with Jeffery (though, Jeffery had one today).

          • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

            once again, he’s a tight end and not a WR. When trestman tried to make him a WR it was a disaster. He is a tightend playing hurt and he’s fucking up. He is not a go up and get it guy.

          • madscout12

            He’s 6’6″ and taller than 95% or so guys in the league, and all DBs. Put the ball up for him and he can come down with it. TEs are used like this all the time.

          • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

            Madscout, Martellus Bennett doesn’t get the separation for that kind of play despite catching some of those passes over the years. Bennett is a great tight end compared to the guys we trotted out there for years. The closest thing we had to a pass catching tight end was Dezzy Clark. He ran the seam route to perfection because he didn’t give a fucking fuck about opening up the inside and getting pounded. There were very few interceptions that were intended for Clark.

            Bennett is definitely huge. In my opinion the plays he should be running involve him not running laterally like the fucking Trestman special….don’t require him to start moving upfield after catching the ball on a route that is not already vertical, the occasional backshoulder on the goalline and straight up power forward post up routes where the only way to the ball is through him. If he can’t catch it he has to go. BUT….you have to replace him with someone better or you should keep him until you do.

          • madscout12

            “you have to replace him with someone better or you should keep him until you do”

            On this much, we agree. Except for also this…

            “don’t require him to start moving upfield after catching the ball on a route that is not already vertical, the occasional backshoulder on the goalline and straight up power forward post up routes where the only way to the ball is through him”

            Like I was saying…MB should be thrown balls in the back of the EZ when we’re in the RZ where the ball is 7’5″+ in the air and either gets caught by him, or goes out the back of the EZ. He’s struggled on balls where he’s running laterally and often fails to run a clean route.

          • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

            i know, i want that to happen but if you can’t catch a game changing 5yd 3rd down conversion thrown at the middle of your chest, how do we then transition over to Julio Jones-esque routes?

    • SC Dave

      He finds it. He just does not catch it

  • AlbertInTucson

    SEA loses it fourth 4th quarter lead this year and CAR remains undefeated.

    SD and Philips outplaying GB and Rodgers in Lambeau but Cheese cling to a four point lead.

    • SC Dave

      Go Panthers!

      • Irish Sweetness

        Keuchly’s back.

  • John Doe

    Glad Bears did not pick another meaningless win and remain well-positioned for a top 5 pick. This team ain’t going anywhere…Especially with a coach as conservative as John Fox. No wonder that dude has not won super bowl despite making it there twice.

    • The GP

      John Doe = Pissed Off?

      • Trac

        You normally find him at the morgue.

  • BerwynBomber

    Personally never been a fan of the guy but Rivers might be the most intense competitor of any QB in the league, Brady included.

    • MB30SD

      Whiny little baby. And he has the ugliest throwing motion I’ve ever seen.

      I see tons of him here. He’s a little bitch.

  • SC Dave

    Rivers sucks. No vision at all. Could have trotted into the endzone untouched on second down.

    • willbest

      Yeah dude throws for 480 yards, 2 TDs no INTs, with a 67% completion. He is week old poop

      • The GP

        43/65 and 503 yards

      • SC Dave

        And loses

  • The GP


    Don’t think today is a negative for Bears. Many positives. Team needs 5-7 playmakers.

    2 wideouts, a new TE, a couple inside linebackers and two shutdown corners. That’s 7.

    I’m sure Pace will just snap that up in the offseason.

    • madscout12

      They need about 3.

      Speedy Return Man
      Shutdown Corner
      A difference maker on the D line

      That will turn a bunch of these Ls in to Ws. Add a Mauler on the interior O-Line or another Tackle worth his salt, and you’ll see something.

      • John Doe

        That is a pretty long list. At least 2 years from being a serious contender…

        • madscout12

          Is it?

          CB in the 1st or FA
          Return Man can be White or found in the later rounds
          D line can be found in the 2nd
          Guard can be found in the later rounds or FA.

          We probably want an interior LB as well, but a good offseason can happen.

    • 5-7 playmakers lol

      Maybe we can buy some nuclear power from the Libyans and go back to 1985.

      We need ONE stud Dline pass rusher.
      ONE CB who can hold his own vs #1WRs
      And maybe something on Offense. A stud OG wouldn’t hurt, but let’s see how the Forte situation unfolds.

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        i would take a stud ILB too.

        • I wanna see what this Anderson kid’s got, and Christian Jones for that matter.

          But yeah, if they look like Jags, then ILB vaunts over CB IMO

      • SC Dave

        How about a te that can catch? Still hating the Olsen trade as much as the first day.

    • SC Dave

      Uni has to go

      • BerwynBomber

        Why?

    • BerwynBomber

      I’m more with madscourt’s needs. Why do we need a new TE? If you wanna pick up one in a late round, fine, but Martellus is still top 10 in the league and the dude’s pretty damn durable.

      WRs? Depends on a) if we re-sign Alshon, and b) what White can provide next year. But if we pick another WR with a top ten pick that will be a tough sell.

  • BearDown100393

    Now that the Bears got their Trestman Tribute out of the way, can we return to sensible play calling and execution?

  • Trac

    So gents, how do you like this roller coaster ride? Gotta say that the Bears have been feisty so far but we’re back to where we were a couple of weeks ago, hoping for a high draft pick.

    I guess I will never get used to losing.

    • MB30SD

      Sigh. You’re better than this. Haha

  • MB30SD

    Wait… we talking about practice?!?!?!

  • WHAT IN DEE WORLD WAS THAT? lol

    Colt’s going with the onside run!

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      most fucked up thing i have seen

    • BerwynBomber

      Wonder if that is the single play that gets Chuck Strong canned.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Pagano must WANT to be canned.

        I’d have posted sooner but it took me a while to stop laughing.

      • I was thinking the same. I literally LOLed.

        In the future when tombstones are holographic playing the best and worst moments of our lives, that’ll run on a loop for Chuck

    • AlbertInTucson

      That is going to be one INTERESTING post game presser with Mr. Pagano.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Could that have been Pep Hamilton’s idea?

    • BerwynBomber

      Doubtful. He is the OC, isn’t he?

      Seems that play would fall on the ST coach and the HC.

      • AlbertInTucson

        He’s the OC but I can’t believe they could run anything CLOSE to the fire drill without the HC’s blessing.

        Maybe Pagano to the Patriots minus the points?

    • The sad part is. Chuch probably dreamt that up the second the Pats spanked them out of the playoffs last year. It came in a vision, in the middle of the night.

      Unfortunately, it was a tradewind induced vision.

  • This reminds me of the Utah Jazz playing the Jordan Bulls.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    that Ford Mustang commercial doesn’t make sense to me. They need a wall of speakers to hear how loud and powerful their car is??? Does it sound like a Prius without the speakers?

  • BerwynBomber

    The Pats are a machine.

    Colts would be smart to serve both Pagano and Grigson their walking papers before next season.

  • AlbertInTucson

    BUT, the Colts cover.

  • BerwynBomber

    The good news is we have a coaching staff that does their best to ensure that our team is prepared and not giving games away. Yes, we can all criticize Gase’s conservative play-calling in OT but this is a young OC who has managed to steer Jay Cutler through 4.5 games w/out a multiple pick game — no small thing. Also, Alshon look fantastic after being out so long.

    The bad news? We lost to a team that a) looked poorly coached, b) was missing three of their best D players, c) was down to their third or fourth string RB, and d) fumbled the ball threes times. Stating the obvious … a bit of an ugly loss.

    • Irish Sweetness

      What about Fangio? He let Stafford stand in there and pick us apart. Matthew Stafford, not some GOAT. What’s the point in doing that?
