    Hopefully the Beloved will smoke the BiQueens today. If they can bottle up Gurley they can corral AP. Keep him at 100 or less and smack Teddy a few times. Unless ST’s fall on their face again, this game is winnable.

    • willbest

      Against the Rams we shut down Gurley by leaving receivers wide open, and Foles was just horrible. Bridgewater might not be much better than Matt Casell, but he is going to make those throws.

      • CanadaBear

        I’d rather shut down AP and take my chances with Teddy. If the Bears don’t key on AP it’s going to be a long game.

  • TBC

    Go Bears!!!!

  • Big Mike

    This game feels like something between a pre-season game and a regular game. More interested in matchups and individual performances than I am the outcome. Bears win would of course be exceptional.

    Go Bears1

    • willbest

      pffft. Bears going to the playoffs yo.

  • Big Mike

    What’s the injury list look like. Who’s on the IR Bennet, White, Wilson, ?

  • CanadaBear

    If the Bears can rise to the occasion it will totally fuck up the BiQueens post season hopes. Sounds like a good thing to do!

    • willbest

      Vikings realistically only need 1 more win. We are probably the easiest team on their schedule, but the Giants are hardly a model of consistent play.

      • CanadaBear

        If they lose to the Bears their last two will be butt pucker time for them. Hope the Bears smoke ’em.

    Here’s to a hard fought loss and top 5 pick!

    • Blackhawks63

      Amen. I want to see the Bears lose out and put Pace/Fox in the best position possible for the 2016 draft. Nothing gained from winning another game this season. Vikings should beat us pretty good I imagine. They need the win badly.

  • Doc Nitty

    Alright, now remember guys, we’re Bears fans, we should probably go ahead and root for the beloved to win the game. We can fantasize about the almighty draft pick the other six days a week.

    Tis Gameday.

    Bear Down.

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd 4ever85! (AKA, ButchDeadLift)

      I understand, but we were one loss away from having both Aaron donald and Leonard Williams and for token wins . Lose the battle. Win the war

      • CanadaBear

        That’s Bears luck. If they were one slot higher both players would have gone off the board one slot higher. If there are 3 great, can’t miss players in the draft, the Bears will be drafting 4th. At least Pace seems competent and there are a lot of holes to fill.

        • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd 4ever85! (AKA, ButchDeadLift)

          Time to make Bear Luck a positive, Canada, but i hear ya

          • CanadaBear

            Kinda like Bear weather.

  • Cormonster

    I’m gonna go watch the game with some friends today. I don’t know much about this team other than seeing 3 or 4 games and occasionally reading the blog. What I’ve gathered is 1) Lord loves a working man. 2) Don’t trust whitey.

    Anything else I should look for today while watching the Bears stomp the Vikings?

    • CanadaBear

      Hopefully Alshon is healthy enough to have a good game. If he is, I think Eddie Royal gets about a half dozen catches. Would love to see Forte shifting to WR with Langford at RB. Pretty sure that would stress their defense. If McPhee plays effectively, the D will step up a little bit. He’s the heart and soul of the D. He’s the one that gets everybody jacked up.

    • MB30SD

      nope, that about sums it all up.

  • BearDown100393

    I don’t know what to expect from this Bears team. “Effort” is subjective and at this stage of the season, the inexperienced should be paying off some form of performance dividend for the coaching staff. Auditions have officially begun and everyone should be on notice. The NFC North is a parity driven mediocre division without a clear cut dominant team.

        Might be. Timu is in , right? He should be. Again, would show POX won’t abide awfulness

        • CanadaBear

          That’s my take on it. Nothing against Jones (I thought he would be good), but I love the thought process of POX. For the first time in forever, the best guy plays. Of course, the real test will be when some of their high draft picks suck moose wang.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd 4ever85! (AKA, ButchDeadLift)

            Yeah, for the first time in a long time when i ask in disbelief” why is that guy playing?” POX benches them soon thereafter, or out right cuts luke w Vereen.

    Cutler has been off on his deep ball all season

  • SC Dave

    Peanut for the strip, then Olsen for the TD

  • Jack Lacan

    Broadcast team are relatives of Queens players…

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd 4ever85! (AKA, ButchDeadLift)

      We can carry them over to the second half, right?

  • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd 4ever85! (AKA, ButchDeadLift)

    Top 5, here we come! And hurting AP and Bridegwater and Xavier Rhodes is gravy

  • BearDown100393

    Dump play with a tick left.

  • willbest

    So a timeout would have left them with 2 timeouts and 50 seconds left instead of 3 and 22

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog “I don’t understand the play calling. It’s counter productive.”
    Play-calling has been fine. Issues have been decision-making, execution and the Vikings.

    • BearDown100393

      Okay, so what should the play calling be, Mr. Twitter?

  • madscout12

    Just saw the Ravens Unis. They aren’t that bad. They just look like the Steelers from the waist down.

  • madscout12

    Shut up, Collin. Get off my TV.

  • BearDown100393

    Kevin Burkhardt overly worrying for the welfare of a child beater.

  • madscout12

    No shit.

  • BearDown100393

    Robbie was actually trying to kick it out of the end zone. But hey, we’ll take it.

    • SC Dave

      Troll

      • BearDown100393

        Jay just coughed it up.

  • SC Dave

    Wow!! And not even a penalty!!

  • SC Dave

    No pocket sense there

    • madscout12

      The RT got beat like a drum.

  • madscout12

    Mother fuckin’ Long.

  • Jack Lacan

    We’re a “fumblrooski” away from NFL dominance!!!

  • Cubsnlinux

    Kyle long has been brutal

  • Pissed Off

    Waste

  • Scharfinator

    Long is dog shit at RT. He’s a great guard, put him back.

  • BearDown100393

    Pam Oliver is apparently too busy to do her job.

    • Cubsnlinux

      What’s up with her hair

  • Cubsnlinux

    I am not sure if Kyle long can survive at tackle

    • BearDown100393

      Jay Cutler cannot survive if Kyle Long can’t do his job.

      • Cubsnlinux

        Yep. Long is getting Cutler killed out there.

    • SC Dave

      It was stupid to move him there to begin with, despite the consensus on this blog

      • Scharfinator

        ALA Devin Hester going to WR.

      • Cubsnlinux

        It was a desperation move when they got caught with their pants down. Well it certainly helps push the tank train.

  • willbest

    Either Long is hurt, or he is regressing. Tackle is rapidly shooting up the draft priority list.

    • Cubsnlinux

      I don’t think he is hurt. He has been athletic but with very poor technique.

  • Pissed Off

    Ap has a dip in I hope he swllows it

  • madscout12

    Guys, on a pass rush, you are trying to avoid blockers, not run into them.

  • RenoBear

    Boy these announcers gobble some Viking dong. Good lord

    • BearDown100393

      Playoff broadcast hype.

  • BearDown100393

    Tackling?

  • Pissed Off

    Tom Brady strikes again

  • willbest

    Somebody apparently forgot to tell our ST unit the season is over, because they are on track to put out there first positive performance of the season

    • Pissed Off

      We should at least get everyone on the same page

  • madscout12

    I hate this team. Holy fucking shit, how are we letting them out power us?

  • SC Dave

    What an awful performance. Fortunately, there is a real team on the adjacent tv that i can watch whup up on jefe’s bff team

  • Pissed Off

    At least my fantasy team is crushing….oh wait

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      go figure you hate your fantasy team too.

  • BearDown100393

    The Bears are the perfect opposing team for opposing mediocre quarterbacks to practice throwing with God like confidence. Don’t be pissed off by the comment. Be mad because it is the motherf*cking truth.

    • willbest

      I don’t understand why its been so consistent beyond coaching and GM changes. Its like its coming from McCaskey or something.

      • Cubsnlinux

        You mean George is calling plays for defense from the owner’s suite? #thanksobama.

        • BearDown100393

          Its second half. George is napping.

      • madscout12

        We just don’t have a lot of talent.

        Who was confident in our secondary to start the season?

        Who thinks we have anyone who scares you up front? Maybe 1-2 players, but not whole damn line.

        What hard hitting LBs do we have?

        We need more.

        We need a beast up front.
        We need a beast behind the line.
        We need a beast in the secondary.

        Then the rest will play better.

    • Jack Lacan

      You mean like Brock Osweiler???? That dick.

  • Cubsnlinux

    Vikings are bitch slapping the Bears secondary all day.

    • BearDown100393

      And the defensive line, linebackers etc.

      • Cubsnlinux

        I think the line backers are taking a day off today?

        • MB30SD

          No, they just aren’t good

  • BillW

    The give up in this team is troubling. But we are getting clarity. Dinner – gone. Long-rg.

    • Cubsnlinux

      Hopefully Long gone at RT

  • beninnorcal

    I think Long is a guard after all.

    • BillW

      Consensus has been reached. I’m sure kyle feels like shit. He’s a good man

      • BearDown100393

        This is on the coaching staff.

        • SC Dave

          I dont know why you take a pro bowler and move him to a new position. Makes so little sense.

          • BearDown100393

            Neither do I. But this cannot continue.

  • BearDown100393

    I like Kyle Long a lot has a player and leader of the team. But he is clearly out of position and putting the starting quarterback at injury risk in a “pride” game. Either move Long back to his position or put in David Fales. Because this storyline won’t end pretty if allowed to extend much longer.

    • willbest

      If the Bears can’t get within 2 scores, you will see him in the 4th

  • willbest

    Dammit forte… MN should challenge that

    • madscout12

      I’ll take it.

  • Cubsnlinux

    Long is getting beat 8 out of 10 plays. He is not even close.

    • Big Mike

      Pay attention he’s been beat twice

  • RenoBear

    Announcers are downright bored when the Bears are on offense

  • willbest

    So anybody back in August talking about how Leno would be the Bears best tackle this season?

  • Cubsnlinux

    Announcers are running an informercial for Gase.

    • BearDown100393

      Keeps television sets dialed in by the Chicago market.

  • willbest

    Good lord Royal…

  • Cubsnlinux

    Go for it.

    Hell, yeah.

      Alshon has like 6″ on his wingspan

    Our receivers are S-L-O-W

  • SC Dave

    Catchable ball there

  • Pissed Off

    Not a fg right

  • BearDown100393

    Josh Bellamy meet the sideline.

  • willbest

    The Defense can pull your jersey over your helmet?

    • madscout12

      Apparently. And you get called for holding.

    • BearDown100393

      Just not ours.

  • Pissed Off

    What!

  • Cubsnlinux

    Good as Gould. Feels good to say it again.

  • willbest

    So ST is putting on a show.

  • Pissed Off

    Gotta rewind the dvr here …..he made it?

    • Cubsnlinux

      Yeah he apparently only shanks the game deciders.

  • Trac

    Turnover time boys.

    • willbest

      The way the offense is playing it needs to be a pick-6

  • Jack Lacan

    And…wait for it….Nothing is over…

    • willbest

      Well its not over yet. MN is perfectly capable of blowing it.

  • BearDown100393

      So much for that plan. 🙁

  • madscout12

    Jebus, line

    Well at least we will get to see Fales.

  • Cubsnlinux

    This offensive line is a dumpster fire

  • Pissed Off

    Amateurs

  • willbest

    Of course there is a hold

  • Pissed Off

    Take a knee

  • SC Dave

    No fucking discipline

  • Cubsnlinux

    Can we just go ahead and punt on 3rd down before Cutler is killed and/or before we lose 10 more yards?

    • willbest

      The way the ST is playing we should just punt it on first down and hope to recover a muffed punt

      • Cubsnlinux

        This works too. Let’s go crazy all the way.

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    note to refs: an attempted hold is not a hold.

  • Cubsnlinux

    The force is not with Da Bears

  • willbest

    If Vikings get a TD here, I want to see Fales

  • Pissed Off

    Leave it to us to make teddy look like a good nfl qb

    • Cubsnlinux

      Good? He looks great

    • BearDown100393

      Hall of Famer

  • BearDown100393

    AP on one leg still breaks through tackles.

  • DaMurph

    Shea gettin pulled down and no fucking flag……………come on!!!

  • Cubsnlinux

    Fales time

  • willbest

    Way to go Shea, keep the receiver up until he can fall forward over the first down line

  • Pissed Off

    Team has mailed it in. They know they aren’t going anywhere after losses to the shitty niners and skins

    • Cubsnlinux

      I think there is is so much crap all over that coaching cannot hide it anymore.

  • wreckinball

    Boo

  • willbest

    Going to have to wait until the next Bears possession to see Fales

  • Cubsnlinux

    With the #5 pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Chicago Bears select…

      Doesn’t matter the person you will pine for is whoever is drafted #4 and #6

    35-7 panthers. It was as laughable the Giants would beat them as the Falcons. As i said.

    • Pissed Off

      Sounds like the vikes bears score

    Oh wow. That sucked.

  • Pissed Off

    Not even 3 and out

  • Cubsnlinux

    Cutler can’t take this no more .. Ha ha

  • SC Dave

    Cutler… smh

  • BearDown100393

    Go ahead. Defend that.

    • SC Dave

      They will, trust me.

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      cut him

      • SC Dave

        Lalz… this.

    • madscout12

      It can’t be.
      But there are plenty of plays left on the field by guys other than Cutler.

    • Cubsnlinux

      Yes.. If not for that interception…. Oh wait…

  • willbest

    That can’t be right, I have been assured that the reason Cutler is playing bad is line and receiver play

    • wreckinball

      It’s right
      He’s mediocre
      This site thinks otherwise though

      • willbest

        No he is above average, which means a 15 year NFL career because every year 10 QBs demonstrate they have no business in the NFL, and Cutler has not had that season yet.

        • wreckinball

          Disagree
          He’s average this year
          What’s scary isQB is not the priority

      • Irish Sweetness

        And when you think one thing and everyone else thinks the other thing ….?

  • wreckinball

    Turning into last year

    • willbest

      The OC has leaked stuff to the media? And Cutler is going to get benched next week for the good of the team?

      • wreckinball

        Performance

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      do it, unleash it, unleash the hate. Make that the reason for the loss.

        You watching?

        • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

          unleash it.

          • wreckinball

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        yes join the Dark side!

    • BearDown100393

      Completely untrue. The Vikings would have 50 by now.

    • Cubsnlinux

      Yes and what did I miss? Cutler playing RT? or Cutler playing offensive line by himself. Selfish..he is.

  • Pissed Off

    Cutler looking good today. Not holding the ball…accurate throws

  • BearDown100393

    Yeah Twitter Guy, I’m sure Adam Gase dialed that one downstairs.

  • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

    on that note i think we can definitely pinpoint the reason for the loss. Cutler of course.

    • BearDown100393

      Well no. But seriously what the hell was that play?

      • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

        an incredibly terrible throw and long disengaging

    • Pissed Off

      Cutler has no faults duh

      • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

        teach your children well

      • madscout12

        Totally what was said. Totally.

    Pretty sure Cutler has figured out how to beat the NFL’s concussion protocol.

    • EnderWiggin

      Lots of practice.

  • madscout12

    Fuck this.

  • BearDown100393

    Teddy! brings down the defense. Breaks the tackles. Makes the leap. Gets the touchdown. Bust being sculpted in Canton as I type.

  • Pissed Off

    I hope the vikes fans know teddy is not good he did this against the bears

  • SC Dave

    Still dont understand the bridgewater hate. Sure outplaying cutler fromwhat ive seen, tho i missd most of the first half

    • BearDown100393

      So did Cousins.

    • Pissed Off

      Have you watched him before today….looked at stats

    • willbest

      And Blaine. And Brock.

  • BearDown100393

    “Maybe the best game Teddy Bridgewater has ever played…..” – Just uttered on the air.

    I wanted a competitive loss, not a mailing it in a loss.
    Fales time

    • Big Mike

      Yeah. Takes the steam out of what we are building on

  • Cubsnlinux

    We are well set for 2016 folks. The force is with the tank train.

  • Cubsnlinux

    Thompson has been impressive.

  • wreckinball

    Oh well it is what it is

  • RenoBear

    Oh my gosh these announcers are gross. Bridgewater is the best QB in football according to them it seems. The excitement in their voice for all things Vikings is nauseating

    • BearDown100393

      Jersey orders are spiking.

  • willbest

    Da fuck where is Fales?

    • BearDown100393

      Hiding.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      on the bench where he belongs

      • willbest

        Not down 3 scores with 8 minutes to play

        • BearDown100393

          Still have a chance….

    • Cubsnlinux

      Took one look at this offensive line and locked himself up in an unlisted toilet.

  • SC Dave

    Odell beckham is a fetid cunt. That he hasn’t been ejected is corrupt.

  • SC Dave

    More garbage time stats for Jay?

    • BearDown100393

      And Forte.

    • madscout12

      He’s due.

    • Big Mike

      Should they just quit?

      • willbest

        Would like to see Fales to know if you have somebody that looks like a backup QB or need to go fishing.

        • Big Mike

          You don’t. He’s a 6th round draft choice.

          • willbest

            Fitzmagic and Cassel were 7th rounders

          • Big Mike

            They were drafted by professional talent evaluators. Fales was drafted by Emery who has produced 2 players out of 3 drafts

  • Pissed Off

    C’mon guys onside kick here or a quick stop another quick score then an onside kick and another quick score and then another onside kick and a 50 yard gould fg and we win

  • DaMurph

    Hall of Fame stats…..cast the Teddy bust!

    • willbest

      In fairness to the announcers, they have to generate interest in a game that is one-sided. They wouldn’t have to talk about Teddy if anybody on the Bears was doing something they could talk about.

      • DaMurph

        No Im serious, 16/19 3 TDs……..some awesome stats

  • willbest

    Now we take a timeout?

  • willbest

    Bears didn’t do much on Defense? We had 8 new starters

    • Big Mike

      Was it 8? Really. Wow.

  • Cubsnlinux

    Why the heck is Mcclelin running along with the ball carrier?

    • BearDown100393

      To block?

      • Cubsnlinux

        Apparently he hasn’t been very successful at doing that.

    • Blackhawks63

      Hopefully his career in Chicago ends in two weeks.

      • BearDown100393

        And a new one begins in Tampa.

        • EnderWiggin

          I think he’d end up competing for playing time opposite Matthews…

    • Big Mike

      Playing himself out of the league

  • Pissed Off

    Bears sucked to start the year. Were pretty damn good weeks 4 thru 12 showing improvements and now shitting the bed to end the year…not sure what to think

    • willbest

      We played 3 playoff teams to start the season, 1.5 of them without Cutler

    • BearDown100393

      Will always have (and cherish) the Favre game.

    • Cubsnlinux

      That they will be darn good to at least start the next season? #cyclical

    • Blackhawks63

      It’s called lack of talent. And hence why we need to be patient as Ryan Pace and John Fox rebuild. We have so many needs, especially on defense and the offensive line.

      yeah we can. his crappy play cost us 2 games therefore dragging down the moral of the team, to put up a shit performance this week. Cut him!

    Okay you can send Jay back out there if it is to make him kneel out the game

  • BearDown100393

    5 TDs for Teddy Bridgewater.

    “Oh well, it was just the Bears, they are being outclassed today”

  • Pissed Off

    This defensive performance would not have happened under Mel Tucker. Fangio should be embarrased

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      that is one of the dumbest things you have ever written.

      • EnderWiggin

        That was a bold statement…

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          that’s why I said it was one of the dumbest, he’s made a lot of dumb statements

      • BearDown100393

        Will be really hard to top this one.

    • BearDown100393

      Uh say what? It would 60+ with Tucker.

    • madscout12

      It happened several times under Tucker.

    • Big Mike

      It happened every week. What are you last year. What are you talking about

  • willbest

    What is Fox doing with this?

    • BearDown100393

      Changing to the Panthers game ASAP

    Shouldn’t it be intentional grounding? He isn’t throwing it at an eligible receiver and it didn’t go past the line

    • SC Dave

      I was wondering the exact sme thing. I dunno the rule, so it may not count since he bounced it off the defender

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      Nope, the pass hit a defender. Just like a batted pass in that case.

      He’s the kind of guy you change your offense to suit him. Don’t give him away for a ham sammich. He could have been the WR experiment instead of Hester.

  • SC Dave

    Cam. MVP?

    • DaMurph

      Whens the last time they did a drop test on Cam? hahaha

    • BearDown100393

      Yes.

    • Anonymous

      All but locked up. Brady second. Palmer takes the bronze. And Wilson as first alternate for the podium.

  • Big Mike

    This loss makes me think we are a lot farther away than ithought

    • SC Dave

      Must agree. Not remotely competitive with the Vikings, who are not good.

    • BillW

      I wrote 9 7 next year. Now I think 7 9 would be progress. Very long way to go. And I do hope Gase gets a hc job. I’ve seen enough

    • MB30SD

      oh stahp that shit.

      Not coming from a guy like you… a COACH like you. You know how emotional a game this is, and it’s all about motivation and ‘the moment’.

      If we were playing for a spot in the show this game and the last 2 would have been very different.

      I expect more from you mike.

      • Big Mike

        Not based on score. Based on play calling, Long’s regression, my acknowledgement that Shea McLellin does not belong in the NFL, Kyle Fuller getting punked week after week, Slauson and Leno getting beat on the simplest stunt like they were middle school kids, Grasu getting worse every week, Goldman not showing up. And on and on.

        • BearDown100393

          Shovel pass interceptions.

        • MB30SD

          Sure, I agree with all that, but this is still the team that’s been 3 to 7 points and a few seconds away from 5 more wins. One excellent offseason and some luck and emotion and who knows

  • SC Dave

    kick it straight and true.

  • willbest

    Oh wait, I called this.

  • Viva

    Dave Toub for HC.

    • SC Dave

      Um, no. That train left last season, if not before.

      Specials played excellent today.

    • MB30SD

      There he is!!

      Fuck toub. Unless he wants to come back as our specials coach. then I love him.

  • SC Dave

    100 yards rushing for cam today. On 8 carries

    • BillW

      And Chico was on the watch list a couple years ago

    • Anonymous

      Cam’s a monster. Long-term he will have to turn into a version of R-berger or he won’t last. But right now he seems unstoppable.

    • Scharfinator

      Maybe he can help Peanut get a ring. He had a FF, btw.

      PEANUT PUNCH

  • BillW

    Very disappointed in the team and the coaches. No explanation for the mid season surge only to be so horribly flat now for three weeks

    Something is wrong besides talent. This is essentially the same team that went 5 and 3 including a big gb win

    • BearDown100393

      They quit today. Unacceptable.

  • wreckinball

    Back to reality

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog “Someone will one day explain to me what Adam Gase does that’s so impressive. Cutler’s INTs are down but so are his touchdowns.”

    The answer is in the first part of your second sentence.

    • wreckinball

      Gase is fine the problem is the players

    • BearDown100393

      Let me know what play Adam Gase can dial up for tomato can wideouts not named Alshon.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Anything regarded as “Deep”, anyway.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Jeffrey out, yet again. No credible deep threat. Mike Zimmer PROBABLY noticed.

  • reason1984

    Cutler is awesome!

    • wreckinball

      You are in the right place sarc I think

    • Jack Lacan

      He did as well as he could considering today’s defense performance.

      • reason1984

        D wasn’t on the field for the sacks and the turnovers.

        • Jack Lacan

          Yeah, I know but what the hell he can’t beat anyone alone – ala Cam Newton…or the hated Tom Brady.

          • BearDown100393

            That shovel pass pic. Damn….

  • CanadaBear

    Another dud! I might not even watch the last two unless it’s the local broadcast. Can’t see spending the money in a sports bar. Damn.

      And miss the second Lovie Bowl? Or the Jim Caldwell farewell?

    So do we hand Fales the car keys the next two weeks?

    • BearDown100393

      More likely a hand crank.

  • wreckinball

    Hey they are just not a good team. They are not the worst in the NFL which I and Vegas definitely thought they were at the beginning of the year.
    They need an overhaul

  • Bender McLugh

    Not as fun when the boys don’t spoil the day.

    GO RAIDERS

  • Jack Lacan

    The seasons worst bullshit ref call – see pass interference against Denver – the Pitt receiver face masks the defender and subsequently – the Denver defender is given an interference call…
    Next play the Feelers score.

    • BillW

      It’s why I stopped watching the NFL except for the Bears. No interest in seeing arbitrarily enforced rules that are too complicated to begin with

    Osweiller looks mortal versus the Steelers

    And now, a word from our sponsor…



    Defeating the Packers gave the faithful hope….



    ..but today left them feeling distressed.



    The fact with which we now must cope…



    …is that Da Bears have clearly regressed.

    • Anonymous

      Except special teams. They were outstanding today.

    • Scharfinator

      Regressed? Compared to Thanksgiving – maybe so.

      Compared to last year, I disagree.

      • BillW

        I think we’re past the time where we measure success compared to last year.

  • wreckinball

    Holy crap is Osweillet awful

    NFC is shaping up to be thoroughly uninteresting in week 17. AFC WC is looking interesting though.

    • Anonymous

      AFC WC has some intrigue left too.

      • BillW

        So does the AFC WC

    Miss universe contest MB.

        The end of that contest had more drama than any of the games today.

    Anyone listen to the Panther’s post game? Rivera sounds fucking pissed. There’s going to be hell to pay during practice this week.

  • Jack Lacan

    Albert in Tucson — You know — Jean Rodgers – Buster Crabbe — why won’t anyone listen?

    • AlbertInTucson

      Flash Gordon and Dale Arden.

      She was only in the first 2 serials “Flash Gordon” and Flash Gordon’s Trip To Mars”.

      Had a MAJOR crush on thelovely miss Rogers.

      Was mightily disappointed when Carol Hughes took over the Dale Ardenrole in “Flash Gordon Conquers The Universe”.

      And yes, all 3 serials reside in my DVD library.

  • Jack Lacan

    Golly gosh the Giants lost — what will ESPN and the media do for a story…???

  • MB30SD

    Damn, that choked me up

  • Anonymous

    Wilson has had an amazing five weeks: 19 TDs and 0 INTs.

    SEA clinched a playoff berth today. Was just a month ago when it looked like they wouldn’t be in the post-season.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Doug Baldwin. 10 TDs in his last games.

      They sure miss Jimmy Graham (He said, facetiously).

    NYG loss today was very indicative of their season. At times they could play to the wire with the elite of the NFL but in the end could not get it done.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Beckham was out of control all first half. Should have been flagged if not ejected. WHAT were those zebras looking at? Odell will likely be hearing from the League this week.

      • MB30SD

        Wasn’t all on odb Al, normal did plenty of his share

        • AlbertInTucson

          True enough, but the intentional shot to the helmet was worthy of a DQ.

          • MB30SD

            Agree 100%

      • BillW

        Saw on pft that the league office said he should have been ejected

        Apart from their probably being right, I wonder why the league is publicly disagreeing with their officials so often? Had the Giants won and Odell was the reason…

        NFL jumped the shark for me this year. They are going to put new procedures in place for the playoffs but I also read they won’t do that for regular season next year. So it’s OK to screw up in the regular season? Even if that costs a team a playoff spot?

        The lack of credibility and accountability is too much for me. I simply don’t enjoy the game itself anymore.

  • Irish Sweetness

    For the first time this season I’m getting the Bears score the next morning. Sleep was a good call.
    Is there any point in downloading the game? I might do just for a peek at Timu.

    A cursory look at the stats.

    1. Jay sacked 5 times, Teddy once.
    2. Vikings 66% on 3rd down conversions! Bears 44%.
    3. Bears rushed for 4.7 YPP, Vikes 3.6 yards.
    4. Vikes ran 75% more running plays than the Bears.
    5. Redzone efficiency was 100% for both teams.
    6. Timu led tacklers both sides with 8-1.

    Ho-hum.

    • Anonymous

      First two sacks were squarely on Cutty. He had forever and a day to get rid of the ball. Third sack the protection collapsed. Missed the last two.

      Bridgewater was looking like a Pro Bowler. Minny has some talent on that team. They will surpass GB the next couple of years. Question is: where will we be?

    • BillW

      To answer your question – not worth downloading in my opinion

    • beninnorcal

      Don’t dl, Irish. Shit is depressing. Rebuilding year tho.

    Surprisingly quiet after the loss. A lot of comments on other games and players and teams.

    Sort of like the Bears played themselves out of relevancy even here.

    • Trac

      Let’s face it, we’ve had a bunker mentality about the Bears since 2010/2011. We keep on hoping, it’s getting tiresome.

    • BearDown100393

      The Bears didn’t care about today’s game. Why should anyone else?

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd 4ever85! (AKA, ButchDeadLift)

      Losing to Gabbert and Draughns killed whatever hope anyone harbored.
      This was just the knock out blow. The Vikings are NOT that good.

      Lack of talent finally caught up to us. The amazing part isn’t how good the Vikes looked, it’s that the Bears didn’t lose like this more often this year.

      I mean, we performed better vs SEA, ARIZ and GB, and 2/3s of those were essentially without Cutty.
      We also took the Donkeys to the wire and beat the Chiefs.

      This is how most of the fans in PS expected the Bears to lose in 2015. Still, it sucks when they get taken to the shed like that. This is the first game where they looked like quitters.

  • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd 4ever85! (AKA, ButchDeadLift)

    On the bright side. We’re now #11 in the draft.

    It’s amazing that we’re not higher with our record, but apparently lots of teams suck.

    http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2015/12/20/10631624/2016-nfl-draft-order-chargers-titans-browns

    We control our own destiny. Two more losses and a top 5 pick! [cross fingers]

    Any buyers?

    WKBW Buffalo’s Joe Buscaglia believes Bills LE Mario Williams will not be back with the team next season.

    Buffalo can save $12.9 million against the 2016 cap by cutting Williams, who is not a great fit in Rex Ryan’s defense. It is a no-brainer move Williams will likely welcome. Williams will be 31 in January, but he is also just a season removed from a 14.5-sack campaign.He would find plenty of suitors on the open market. – Roto
