THE GAME POEM

“Turkey: A large bird whose flesh, when eaten on certain religious anniversaries has the peculiar property of attesting piety and gratitude.”

-Ambrose Bierce

THOUGHTS ON GREEN BAY PACKERS

  • Green Bay’s defense hasn’t been great this season but they are actually ranked 8th in the league in points allowed per game. They are not in the top 20 of total yards, rushing yards or passing yards surrendered so what’s the reason for this anomaly? Turnovers. Packers are +8 on the season.
  • A defense’s touchdown-to-interception ratio is a stat I’ve begun paying attention to in recent weeks and the numbers really are quite telling. The two best ratios in the league are 8-10 (Denver) and 12-15 (Carolina). The worst ratio is New Orleans’ 28-4. Packers are 13-11, right near the top of the sport. (Bears among the worst at 19-5)
  • An interesting statistical tidbit from The Guardian (of all places):

By nearly every other quarterback’s standards Rodgers is having a brilliant season but he is not quite clicking with some of his receivers and his completion rate for the last three games stands at 52.1%, 57.4% and, on Sunday, 47.1%. Over that same same spell he has still thrown eight touchdowns and just one pick – he is Aaron Rodgers after all – but the fact that the chemistry between quarterback and receivers isn’t quite there (he has the lowest completion rate of his career in 2015) may cause trouble come the playoffs.

 WATCH OUT FOR EDDIE LACY

He was nowhere and many thought a healthy scratch a few weeks back. Then he went to Minnesota.

The Bears can’t stop the run. But they haven’t let their inability to do so knock them out of games. Lacy will be hitting the holes with a head of steam.

IRISH VIDEO OF THE WEEK

THREE BEARS OF INTRIGUE

  • The hourglass has flipped on the Bears’ career of Christian Jones. While the coaching staff is clearly enamored with Shea McClellin’s progress/potential in the middle of the defense, Jones has been invisible. Is he ever around the football? Expect Fox and Fangio to be looking to replace him this off-season unless he begins to show up in a big way on the tape.
  • Jay Cutler has to beat the Packers. They are his white whale. Cutler has been everything the Bears organization could have hoped through his eight and a half games but fans still want to see their quarterback go toe-to-toe with the quarterback in yellow and come out on top. What better place than in front of the country on Thanksgiving night?
  • You want to know who will be under the most pressure Thursday night? Whoever Covers James Jones. Aaron Rodgers beat the Bears with Jones in Week One and looks most comfortable of late when throwing to his old buddy down the field. If it’s Kyle Fuller or Tracy Porte or Bryce Callahan or Big Tom Callahan, the Bears can’t let Jones beat them.

AS I WROTE FOR COVERS.COM…

Why the Bears Will Cover (+8.5):

“Everything with the Chicago Bears this season has been injury-dependent and we probably won’t know the statuses of Alshon Jeffery, Matt Forte, Antrel Rolle and Pernell McPhee until 90 minutes before kickoff. (No big deal, it’s only 3 of their 5 best players.) But the Bears have two essential elements when it comes to covering a big number: (a) arguably the best late-game quarterback in the league this season and (b) a suddenly serviceable defense that limits the point damage even on long drives. The point differentials of games which Jay Cutler started and finished this year? -8, +2, +1, -3, -3, +3, +24, -2. Cutler and the Bears have been a tough, determined bunch. Why would anyone be surprised if they kept another game within one possession?”

GAME PREDICTION

Bears create the season’s definitive memory and upset the Packers with a Robbie Gould field goal at the death.

Chicago Bears 27, Green Bay Packers 24

    +1 for the references. first a Moby Dick reference then sneaking in a Tommy Boy reference.

  • chitownproud85

    A game prediction I can get behind. All the bullshit over the years, all the hope, all the disappointment – this week needs to be the week for Cutty. Get it done against the Green and Mold. End the drought, and put the stamp on this season – the Bears are coming. LETS GO!

  • Viva

    Bears 34
    Pack 4

    FUCK THE PACK

    • Irish Sweetness

      Dude, you’re having the Ducasse-less line giving up two safeties, and possible injury for Goldenballs ?

      34-0 would be appropriate on multiple levels.

      • Viva

        Favre will be in the house

        • MB30SD

          I hope we sign a one night deal to send ol’ pez-neck into the stands to knock the fuck outta that clown.

        • Johnnywad

          The Packers current roster knows Favre is a giant fucking douche. They don’t like him either. It’s the fans that’ll be the problem.

          • CanadaBear

            Not that I disagree but why do you say the current roster knows Favre is a douche?

          • Johnnywad

            Pure conjecture on my part. He’s been gone long enough the roster is nearly all different. Add that to the fact that he IS a douche, and it just makes good sense.

    • MB30SD

      Fuck the pack indeed!

  • Scharfinator

    “Jay Cutler has to beat the Packers. They are his white whale.” An obvious metaphor I never thought of. It sums it up perfectly.

    • Trac

      Racist! Why does it have to always be a white whale? Are you happy now MB?

      • MB30SD

        MMMMMMMJes! ; )

  • Trac

    “Statuses”?

  • The GP

    Jeffery is the wildcard. He can change the game for the Bears.

    What is wrong with McPhee that he can’t get off the snap?

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      Knee injury

  • Irish Sweetness

    As I posted on the last thread, Carolina are +13(?) in turnovers, Dallas are -9. Carolina look good tomorrow.

    Detroit aren’t good at much of anything and are a banana skin.

    The Bears +9 is probably the safest bet I’ve seen in a while.

    • What’s Dallas’ TO ratio when Romo is playing? Have to filter those stats.

      • Irish Sweetness

        This is true. The opening line had a funny feel to it. But here’s the thing – Carolina’s plus points are there for all to see. Romo’s team isn’t as good, and that clavicle is going to take a shot or two.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Matty doesn’t make the Bears of intrigue? Langford was only getting 3 yards and a bit per carry, so witchng them up might be the thing to do, keep both fresh and ready to go.

    I’m keeping my Kevin White boner in check, but it’s forming in a teenager kind of way.

    • Forte had been below 4 ypc in 4 of his last 5 games too. OL just hasn’t opened holes this year. Rushing O has been abysmal outside of week 1.

      • Irish Sweetness

        With Grasu and Slauson back in place, Ducasse gone, I think we’ll open up some holes Woodsy. A 1-2 attack with Forte/Langers might cause people problems.

        • CanadaBear

          Not sure Grasu is very good in the run game but at least Ducasse is on the bench.

          • Grasu isn’t exactly a mauler

          • willbest

            Doesn’t it take a couple years of S&C for linemen to get up to speed in the NFL

    • CanadaBear

      From what I remember about my teenage “boner” years was there was no forming. it was either a blue veiner or a diamond cutter. Usually the latter.

  • I can’t shake the feeling that tomorrow night is the first 2 possession Bears loss (w/ Cutler) of the year.

    GB is gonna be psyched for Favre night. Remember the Bears on Ditka night? Chicago’s running into that type of buzzsaw.

    • DaBearsBlog

      I was at the Ditka night game. It was -30000 degrees and they played a team from Dallas.

      • valid point. I remember how cold that was. Went to your fundraiser thing the night before and almost got into 5 accidents driving there and back.

        I remember almost feeling sorry for the guy who won the Ditka contest because he had to go freeze his balls off the next night (though I totally would have with free tickets too).

        • DaBearsBlog

          We had 50 no shows at that event! 50! That weekend was the coldest I’ve ever experienced.

          • I almost didn’t go, but it was because of the snow, not cold. Not exactly ideal driving conditions.

        • MB30SD

          Don’t know how you guys do that shit year in year out.

          It was 60 and rainy here last night and everyone’s screaming and crying. AHHHHH…. El Nino has arrived! Run! Hide!

          We’re such pussies.

          • Trac

            No better weather than Cape Town. Aah the memories. Durban was awesome too.

          • MB30SD

            durbs is dirty.

            Once my kids are in college, it’s 6 months here, 6 in cape town. Ah, the endless summer. Can’t wait!

          • Trac

            I choose to remember Durban as it was when I left. It was almost a lifetime ago.

          • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

            you have sharks though.

          • MB30SD

            fair point

          • Johnnywad

            Giant hairy nuts.

          • MB30SD

            shave em baby.

          • Johnnywad

            Well sure……Memorial Day to Labor Day. Just like white pants.

          • MB30SD

            white balls (that was for trac)

    • BearDown100393

      Rodgers will be upstaged by Favre at Lambeau. A lot of hurt of ego before the game. Could go either way for the Bears there.

  • Kyle Fuller was owned by James Jones in week 1. Time for the youngster to show just how much he’s grown in the last 10 games.

    • CanadaBear

      Or not. Hope he has but not really counting on it.

    • Bender McLugh

      I thought he would turn it (AND his effing head) around last game……..the little action I saw it seemed he didn’t. I can’t believe he’s a lost cause though

  • Bears-4-Ever

    All I want is the Bears to step up and make it a game. No prime-time embarrassment getting owned and blown out. Make it a game and smash them in then mouth. If the Bears end up winning even better, but this is the game the Bears need to show just how much heart they have.

    Bear Down.

  • Trac
  • CanadaBear

    Concerning the rioting/police shooting in the last thread; I think it was Wil was talking about how difficult it is for cops in stressful situations where guns are involved. I totally agree but they are trained for the situation and signed up for it. With that in mind, how does arming teachers in schools make sense? I’m not anti gun at all and at this point trying to limit guns in the US is pointless (there are literally billions of guns in the US and ain’t nobody turning their’s in). What a mess.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Arming teachers is not necessarily a bad idea. In the south of Thailand teachers have been murdered in their classrooms in front of their students, monks have had their heads cut off by IS extremists. The first priority of any teacher is the safety of their students. We are their parents in loco parentis. In places or situations where these things can occur teachers should almost be obliged to carry a weapon in order to fulfil their obligations as a teacher. Armed security is not within most budgets.

      • CanadaBear

        If cops have trouble in those situations how are teachers equipped to handle it?

        • Irish Sweetness

          There;s nothing to handle at that point other than pulling the trigger until it goes click. You storm into a school with evil intent, and I for one will not think twice about bringing that life to an end, armed or otherwise. I would expect the same from anyone minding my children.

          • CanadaBear

            I hunted and fished the entire time I lived in the US (45+ years). It’s one thing to shoot pheasants and another shooting people. My point is teachers aren’t trained to shoot weapons and be cool under fire. It takes a certain mindset to operate under those conditions and I don’t think most teachers possess that mindset. Suppose the teacher screws up and kills a couple of students? Have fun living with that.

          • Irish Sweetness

            All of it true. Sad these things have to be thought about.

          • CanadaBear

            Couldn’t agree more my friend.

      • Bears-4-Ever

        Arming Teachers is not the answer, let’s look at Sandy Hook for example. The kid shot his way through the front door with an assault rifle, which had electronic security BTW, but that shit only slows down a nut-job like that. Now, IF that school had a full time Trained Security Officer, perhaps former Police or Military, and had access to a equivalent weapons, that kid would have never made it past the lobby.

        Arm teachers? No, the last thing you want is some half-ass trained person adding bullets to the air. No, but a Trained Professional in Security and Fire-arms? YES.

        You can never stop the lone criminal or nut case who wants to do harm for the sake of doing it. The best you can hope for is to stop them with as much force as possible before or shortly after the carnage begins.

      • antityco

        It’s a horrible idea.

      • MB30SD

        I tend to agree with this general thought process.

    • “how difficult it is for cops in stressful situations where guns are involved.”

      stressful, yes, and that can lead to squeezing the trigger a couple times when maybe another approach was appropriate. but to unload the clip, reload, and squeeze again? that’s way more than just reflexes leading you astray.

      • BillW

        Nobody is excusing this guy. He’s a cold blooded murderer.

        But behind every action are reasons. If we ignore those reasons things can’t improve.

        As a life long Chicagoan (though in the ‘burbs for most of my adult life) I get a bad feeling of what has happened. Yonny keeps pointing out correctly that there are several cold blooded murders that happen every week and the communities where they occur turn their backs or shrug their shoulders. Or maybe have candlelight vigils for the victim but do NOTHING to stop it.

        The cops have a dangerous job made worse by the community’s refusal to help. Way too many see the cops as the enemies and not the gangs. The gangs are family!

        So it should not surprise anyone that some cops feel it’s hopeless. Analogies like “jungle” and “animals” are used and again that’s is not beyond understanding. In their minds the cops profile and prejudge and lump everyone into some category of people not worth the risk.

        It’s very un-PC to say any of this, but I’ve gotten tot he point where all I see are community leaders walking arm in arm but never trying to actually stop the crime. And as a result I have no sympathy left.

        • i’m not saying chicago is a shangri-la of kumbaya. i’m saying unloading the clip, re-loading, and shooting again. that’s beyond reflex.

          • BillW

            Absolutely. And I’m saying there is a lot more going on here than one murdering cop.

          • CanadaBear

            it’s truly complicated. I don’t believe the majority of the people in the hood are OK with the gangbangers. They are terrified by them. The problem is the same people don’t trust the cops because of past behavior. If the regular cops would stop protecting the horrible cops, it would go a long way towards changing the way the people see the cops. It’s not unlike unions. If the unions would stop protecting the totally worthless workers, things would change for the better. Most union workers would be thrilled to see the worthless bastards fired.

        • Sactowns#1

          This is what happens when capitalism doesn’t work for everyone, or even the majority in a community. And we can see the criminal justice system isn’t working for this community either. (incarceration rates, sentencing, prisons for profit) These people feel disenfranchised, abandoned by society so they are turning their back on said society and its systems.

          • willbest

            What about the present system is capitalism?

          • Sactowns#1

            Good point.

          • DaMurph

            Sac, its way deeper than that. Some of this is cultural thats been passed on for generations. I grew up in this city and experienced the gamut of racial shit.Your theory on this problem isnt the main issue.

      • DaMurph

        he didnt reload, another cop stopped him, it was like he was in the twilight zone

        • You’re correct. He didn’t reload. I had bad information. But he did unload his entire 16-bullet-clip:

          “Van Dyke, who was denied bond on Tuesday, was the only officer of the several who were on the scene to open fire. Alvarez said the officer emptied his 9 mm pistol of all 16 rounds and that he was on the scene for just 30 seconds before he started shooting. She said he opened fire just six seconds after getting out of his vehicle and kept firing even though McDonald dropped to the ground after the initial shots.”

          • DaMurph

            and he dropped it and was going to reload and was stopped by the other coppers. I dont know if it was cold blooded murder or if something snapped in the guy. I definitely feel there was no need to shoot in the first place because of the distance of the threat. I dont know what the call was and what the victim had done that precipitated the call and had the coppers so edgy. I have heard some stories but dont know the truth so I wont even put it out here.

    • willbest

      To be fair the NRA wasn’t going to force sidearms on teachers. Just make it permissible with training. The whole point of that though was to stop creating soft targets. Some psycho with a gun isn’t going to respect a gun free zone, and in fact it will empower him. The hope then is that these crazies pick other places to go after and nobody needs to fire anything.

      • CanadaBear

        The NRA can’t force firearms on anyone.

    • KentuckyBearsFan

      I’ve had teachers too incompetent to know how to use an overhead projector. I’m not sure I would trust most of them to know how to use even a Super Soaker.

  • CanadaBear

    Not sure if any of you guys have seen Dickerson’s latest screed against Cutler on ESPN Chicago? The headline (I didn’t read it) is Cutler’s 5 worst games against GB. Since Cutler is playing up to his salary this year Dickerson has to go all historical to rip on Cutler. That’s the kind of shit you would expect coming out of Fudgeland. Dickerson is worthless.

    • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

      He hates him Canada. It goes back to 2010 and 2011 when Cutler snubbed a bunch of them. Dickerson got so bent out of shape for so long that it became a running joke on the Waddle and Silvy show on espn1000 here in chicago

      • CanadaBear

        You would think that ESPN could find someone better. Michael Wright wasn’t exactly great but he was light years better than Dickerson. I get that Dickerson is butt hurt over Cutler, what I don’t understand is why he is still employed by ESPN. When employees of the same company publicly make fun of another employee, you’d think either they would get reprimanded or the other guy would get canned. Oh well.

        • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

          The ESPN crews stick together and are all douchebages. Carmen DeFalco has turned into an incredible dbag over the last 2 years. John Jurkovich lets him get away with it and he was an NFL player which shows you how much of a clown he’s become as well. They never call their callers out for insane comments because they need higher ratings compared to the Score at the same time slot.

          Silvy is now a clown as well. He’s as butthurt as Dickerson after Cutler got sick of sitting down with that little troll after games and enduring his troll voice and troll questions and insane views on the team.

          • CanadaBear

            The only ESPN TV I ever see are the live NFL games. I never listen to the radio. I used to like the Waddle and Jurko vids for each game. It’s amazing that ESPN’s empire is so filled with crap. Why anyone would willingly watch Smith and Bayless is beyond me. I’ve seen maybe 5 minutes of their shit in my entire life and it was the worst sports crap I’ve ever seen.

          • Bender McLugh

            Spot on about Smith & Bayless. For those who miss their sports topics & debates chock full of Jerry Springer inspiration.

          • CanadaBear

            I have to admit I truly hate watching people yell at each other but those two idiots take it to a whole new level.

          • AlbertInTucson

            The yelling is BAD on TV and completely un-listenable on radio. Always a cue for me to move along.

            Anything from the mouths of Mssrs. Smith and Bayless comes to me 2nd or 3rd had.

            Latest ESPN radio gas bag that immediately activates a channel changel: Bomani Jones.

          • CanadaBear

            Never heard of the last guy. Pretty sure that’s a break for me.

          • willbest

            A few years back I didn’t like Jurko and thought Carmen was okay. Carmen drives me nuts now. And Silvy used to be solid, but is now on the rag so much that I can’t stand the whining.

    • willbest

      Dickerson isn’t a real beat reporter anymore. The last 2 years he has been the fill in guy whenever the normal talent is sick on vacation and is taking the late shift pretty regularly. He isn’t talented enough to separate his two roles.
      I do love the excessive Cutler hate out of him, whenever Cutler is doing well he sounds like a schizophrenic

    • TBC

      “Dickerson: Cutler is a better quarterback, Rob. He really is. He likes the concepts offensive coordinator Adam Gase brought over from Denver. Cutler is also really tight with quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains, who had the unenviable task of working with Johnny Manziel last year in Cleveland. Cutler bonding with coaches … sounds crazy, right? But Cutler has been poised all year. Some of that is coaching. Some of that is personal growth at 32 years old. And keep in mind, Cutler has played much of the year without top weapons Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal and Matt Forte. The turnovers (nine) are still an issue, but Cutler works hard to overcome his mistakes. He has led the Bears to three come-from-behind wins in 2015. ”

      Jeff Dickerson has been positive about Jay Cutler all year long. Since training camp. You can’t fault a reporter for bringing up Cutler’s struggles against Green Bay because it’s one of the most incredible stretches of fail in the NFL today. You’re negligent if you don’t bring it up in the buildup to the game. It’s obligatory.

      • CanadaBear

        Not that I really care but I could post at least 2 dozen articles from this year of Dickerson taking shots at Cutler in games the Bears have won. It’s what he does.

        • TBC

          I sincerely find that hard to believe. But if you say so……

          • CanadaBear

            I’m way too lazy to prove it but almost every article JD writes there is some sort of shot about Cutler’s past misdeeds. Not saying Cutler doesn’t deserve some shit for his past performances and his dismissive attitude towards the media, but if you have the time look through some of his articles. There are always shots, veiled references and damning with faint praise. It’s like Cutler banged his wife.

          • TBC

            Maybe Cutler did. Maybe that was the cause for Cutler’s temporarily broken engagement. I mean, we can’t rule that out……

          • CanadaBear

            I grudgingly had to give you a thumbs up for that one. No offense, of course.

  • The GP

      How the North was won!

      • BillW

        Have the Packers beaten any good teams yet this year?

        • They’ll get bounced in the playoffs again

          • BillW

            I say that because of the Packer fan dilemma that I love. They can never admit to the Bears or Vikings or Lions for that matter ever being a good team. And most of their wins come from them. How can you say you’re a good team unless you beat a good team? Hence constant playoff exits.

            And the only time they didn’t exit the playoffs in the Rodgers era they beat the Bears to do it. But the Bears suck, right? So again they needed to beat a bad team (in the Packer fan estimation) in order to get there.

            Heck – they got in the playoffs by beating a bad team – by their estimation again.

            I think it’s funny that by saying the Bears suck the Packer fans actually put their own team down.

          • TBC

            Oh man, they are not gonna win the Super Bowl. They suck! They’ve only been champions 13 times! They haven’t won in 5 years! How pathetic!

          • Johnnywad

            Boy that losing streak sure splayed your labia now didn’t it………

          • TBC

            The lions loss did everything imaginable to my labia. The other two were disappointing but whatevs.

          • and I quote.

          • MB30SD

            that’s a forgone conclusion.

    • MB30SD

      Amazing. Bonham was intense.

      another of my favorites:

  • The GP

    Phuc Dat Bich was a hoax.

    Can’t believe anything on the interwebz no more

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-34918491

  • The GP

    I’d like to see them give Jones a shot at Sam Acho’s spot. That’s where he played at FSU and I think he could bring the blitz better, as well as cover the wide flat which is why Acho is there.

    Jones has the toughness and physicality to play LB in the NFL, but his spot is the same as AJ Hawk, who Packers fans lamented for vanishing as well. It’s not an impact spot, and he often is called tp pick up the TE because Shae is so bad at it.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Timu deserves a few snaps.

  • BillW

    The Bears have progressed very well this year. But this game has the feel of a potential road bump.

    Having a Cutler led Bears team lose to a Rodgers led Packers team yet again could make it seem like the progress was an illusion. I hope not, but it’s possible. The Packers are the “bottom line” in improving.

    Probably too soon for that to happen, and so with a loss the best thing we can hope for is for it to piss them off more than ever. Like the Bulls always losing to Detroit before they finally turned the corner. Of how the Bears felt in the 84 NFCC.

    Then again, if they pull together the game of their lives – we can say this was the corner that they turned.
    I’m hopeful, but anxious.

    • Can’t go 10-6 without stepping on Rodgers’ throat in front of a national audience.

      Bear down.

      • TBC

        They wen’t 10-6 without doing that in 2012.

        • willbest

            Only for the willfully dense or those on the spectrum.

          • TBC

            I know that “willfully dense” is an expression and you didn’t just come up with it, but part of me feels like the term itself is incongruent. Can you actually try to be dense? Or can you just pretend to be dense?

          • every time I take a dump I become “willfully dense”

          • MB30SD

            don’t you mean, ‘unbecome’.

        • ain’t no denying that, my corpulent companion!

          apologies you missed the implied …in 2015

          • TBC

            Now why would you use such big words when you know I’m willfully dense?

          • i know “apologies” is 4 syllables, but i had faith you’d heard it once or twice before.

    • Irish Sweetness

      According to the bookies, we don’t have a prayer. We were the same price to beat KC and we did, so … we’re expected to lose this one. We are as good as/bad as the Pack if everyone shows up healthy.

    Love and Mercy – John Cusack’s Brian Wilson biopic – is very good.
    Wilson’s song plays over the end credits. Seemed relevant for Chicago tonight.

    • CanadaBear

      I liked the movie and I really dislike the Beach Boys music.

      • DaMurph

        At your age, how can you dislike the boys?

        • CanadaBear

          Never liked them. Not sure exactly why but I was always more into rock n roll, surf music like Dick Dale and The Ventures, then the British Invasion. Around the age of 13 I got into the Blues and that led me down the path of Stax, Motown, R&B, Soul, etc. Like a casual friend said to me after looking at my music collection, do you have any music by white people? I think he was mostly frustrated because out of a fairly decent sized music collection he couldn’t find anything familiar.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Yeah, I was never fan. Never really knew the deal with them.

        Just watching a documentary now on Pet Sounds.

  • Like i said in a previous thread. Man, single-high safety shading over to Fuller. In the redzone under no circumstance have neckbrace cover Jones.
    Other safety in the box use to stuff fat Eddie or blitz and hit the shit out of Rodgers. Take good angles to Vadgers so he won’t extend the play.
    And for the love of God, don’t go offsides and gift him a free play.

      Fox News is weird. They’ll have badass hot fucking chicks that were Prosecutors, DA’s, Defense Attorneys and others that actually have brains, valid arguments from time to time and are so fucking hot and then on the other hand they’ll trot out guys like Hannity and chicks like Hasselbeck who are fucking clowns and blow it all out of the water.

      • Then, there’s stuff like this. Classic.

        https://youtu.be/2eB3OaN_izI

        • MB30SD

          HAHAHAHAHAHAHA… that was hilarious.

          • I thought so too. That’s a brave man. Imagine he’s on a date and a smoking hot woman asks him what he does?

            Also, many “feminists” don’t realize it’s not monolithic.

            There IS such a thing as “conservative” feminists who believe woman staying at home is indeed the best option for women. They tend to be from fundamental christian/jewish/muslim backgrounds, and often cite holy scriptures or even biology, then point to the unravelling of the family structure, and how that increases crime and all social ills.

            Thus. women should stay at home and raise good kids which in turn will produce a much more benign civilization.

            Naturally, bra burning feminists sneer at them and actually deny they’re feminists at all.

            But even the “liberal” feminists have schicsms. For example, some of the more “radical” actually advocate not being with men all together. If men are oppressors, why willingly subjugate yourself to a a tyrant? This remind me of the ancient gk logic, “If women are inferior, why be with a woman? Just be with a male.” (NTTAWWT)

            Other feminists, 3rd world feminists, believe that all these feminists in the U.S., UK, Australia, etc never TRULY understand the plight of true oppression on women. While 1st world feminists are sipping their lattes and worrying about a 10%raise, women in Africa are getting their boobs hacked off, women in china are forced to abort their children by the government, women in Asia are made sex slaves at 12, etc…what do these bra burners do to help THEM out? And indeed, 1st world “feminists” might actually contribute to the global terrorism on women by unwittingly buying into the capitalist power structure that creates 3rd world countries….

            In other words.

            BOOBS.

          • MB30SD

          • MB30SD

            well yeah, but boobs are nicer to look at most times.

          • Johnnywad

            I respectfully disagree good sir. Nothing finer than a a fresh and ready, ever so slightly parted vajajay flanked by a pair of lace topped thigh highs. That’s the top of the mountain for old JW.

          • MB30SD

            uhhhhggg… i get it, I’m just saying they’re not all like that. And boobs are more prodigious.

            And were we separated at birth?!? Thigh-highs are my thang. One of the girls I’m dating wore black fuzzy topped wintery ones on our last date, she never took them off once the whole night.

            I’m voting for bernie from weekend with bernie.

            He’d be about as good as any president we’ve had since tricky bill

          • I have a somewhat funny story about that.

            I was walking around in Hollywood around halloween one year, and naturally, everyone is dressed up.

            So me and this girl strike up a convo with this guy walking. I asked, “Are you dressed up?” cuz he looked vaguely familiar.

            He said, “I’m Bernie, from weekend with bernie.”

            I stopped and looked at him. Sure enough, dead ringer.

            The funny part? All he really did was put on glasses and a Hawaiian shirt or something. So in reality, he just resembled Bernie in real life, and all he has to do every halloween is put on shades and a Hawaiian shirt.

            The other part I wonder about…was he really the actor who played him? We were in Hollywood afterall, and he looked JUST like him.

            So, I’d like to think I partied with Bernie for one night.

          • Trac

            and thank you for being so on top of things (so to speak)

    • I bet she likes it rough. I have radar for that.

      • MB30SD

        I’d like to give it to her… when I became single, I was shocked to find out how many girls like to be lightly choked.

        It’s not my style, but I’m ok with VERY lightly… more just having a hand there. Not into squeezing or hurting anyone. But man, a LOT of girls basically ask for that. I found it really weird and creepy at first

        • I think it’s a modern trend, MB. I’ve been banging girls while you were married, and many of them liked a little roughness, but not like now.

          It seems girls now like it more rough then before, and perhaps it’s due to porn, instagram, sexting, etc?

          I’ve never been an S&M guy, but these girls now don’t just like it rough, but they like being borderline degraded. For instance, this girl I’m banging loves being choked, and not just a lil choked, but almost no breathing choked. She likes being slapped, spanked, and spanked hard, hand print hard. I go with it, but I wonder where my line is. Probably if it involves pissing.

          But she’s not alone. This other girl also liked being spanked hard and gagged. She didn’t mind a lil bruising on her ass. Other gilrs will drop and give me a BJ in public places.

          Women now are more adventures then in the 2000s.

          And god bless everyone one of them.

          I’ll give thanks to that over the turkey dinner.

            if we could only turn that clock back Canada!

          • CanadaBear

            I gotta be honest, the rough stuff actually turns me off. I don’t mind turning a bedroom upside down fooling around but slapping and choking, not so much.

          • It’s funny, Canada, I was never into it either in my 20s. From time to time, a lil, but not like now when I’m in my 30s, and I think it’s more the women than me.

            I just go with the flow, but it’s been my empirical observations that women have definitely become edgier.

            I used to think Butch regular was enough (cuz like any red blooded american, I got ego), but now I wonder if I was actually being boring in my 20s, and am now evolving my “palette”, or if women have just gotten kinkier.

            I think it’s the latter, and I hypothesize it’s because women have been sexualized by Internet and cells at a much earlier age, and exposed to kinkier stuff than ever before…and they like it.

          • CanadaBear

            I’m sure you’re right. I was always hoping for a return engagement so I tried not to do anything that would screw that up!

          • willbest

            Women yearn to be submissive, but society tells them they are equal in all things. So some of them turn to the kinky stuff because sexual derangement is encouraged these days.

          • CanadaBear

            Apparently you’ve never met any women that I know. None of them yearn to be submissive.

          • willbest

            Are they happy?

          • CanadaBear

            My sisters are.

          • willbest

            Lucky them. Nearly every woman I know that doesn’t let their husband lead is on antidepressants and/or divorced.

          • CanadaBear

            Divorced doesn’t really mean they are unhappy. A lot of times that’s why they are happy. The antidepressants are another story for sure. Holy crap, doctors dispense those like candy. One last thing about the pills. I read a few years ago the county that Salt Lake City is in, leads the nation per capita in women on antidepressants so that runs almost counter to what you’re saying. Although I think it says more about the AMA than anything.

          • Irish Sweetness

            That’s why it’s so hypocritical when thee middle classes go on about the drug problem. They are the drug problem. The only difference between a GP and a street dealer is the license and image.

          • It’s been my experience that most women like men being men, esp in bed.

            Except the ball-busting women, but the only men who get with ball-busting women are the ones with mommy issues.

          • MB30SD

            Big diff between maintaining gender roles and being submissive.

            One’s healthy, the other is a holdover from feudal japan… or any trailer park in texas (where the girl is tired of being hit)

          • willbest

            Or you know all the major religions.

          • Irish Sweetness

            I think the ones that want to be choked were abused. Freaked me out a bit when I was asked to do that, so I didn’t.

            And a lot of girls DO NOT like to be spanked. You can spot them easily, they’re the ones that don’t ask you to spank them.

      • CanadaBear

        I like the guy but he hasn’t been a factor all year.

        • willbest

          No, he did have a couple good games for us.

          • CanadaBear

            I guess I didn’t see those games or don’t remember properly. It seems like the games I see he isn’t exactly killing himself to make any catches. Who knows? As beat up as TE’s usually are, it’s amazing any of them make it through a season.

          • He’s had a few big catches, but it’s hard relying on a guy who balls out one play, then loafs the next. How can you trust a guy like that across the middle or in tight coverage?

            Like I said, it’s the anti-thesis of a “security blanket” (an anxiety pillow).

          • MB30SD

            fuck him. we need to drop his lazy ass ASAP. hate guys like that… total drain.

          • Completely agree.

          • MB30SD

            Exactly.

            I’ll take davis for our clown straight up. Any takers?

          • After that game, Davis changed. He just needed a boot up his ass.

            I would’ve absolutely given a 6th for Davis and trade away Bennett.

            If Miller were not so inj prone, he actually might be better (and faster!) than Davis at this stage.

          • MB30SD
          • AlbertInTucson

            He certainly wasn’t getting his share of “5-50” balls.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Disagree. Bears can’t afford to keep losing guys who defenses must worry about.

        • I seriously doubt the defenses were worried about Bennet, but you’re right.
          It does at least handicap us in that double TE set.

  • willbest

    Oh goodie Jeffery or Watkins for my #2 WR this week.

    • If Jeffery starts, gotta roll with that. He’ll be Jay’s target all day, esp in the redzone. Now how gimpy he is, who knows? Depends if you need a high ceiling guy or not this week vs your opponent.

      Watkins is in a run heavy O with an erratic QB (who may have a bum shoulder) and a rock solid D that keeps games close (thus, no shootouts).

      Rex has been saying they need to target Watkins more, but that might not translate to much, esp if they get up ahead.

  • haha, that singletary tirade made me google the top 10. Always funny. Take a wild guess which #1 is.

    Watching that Pats Hawks Super Bowl what stands out is that Pats drive in the 3rd that finishes with an Amendola TD

    Yet had they rode the Beast it was still there for them

    • willbest

      Of course now Lynch is exhibit #1 on why the Bears shouldn’t pay Forte

  • Gonna make a bold prediction right now.

    I think the Bears coaching staff will remain intact in 2016. Fox. Gase. Fangio.- Jeff.

    I agree. Historically, OC/DCs who are in the playoffs get first dibs to HC jobs the following off-season.

    I doubt we lose either Gase or Fangio until those units perform at a high level and make a deep playoff run.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Our defense is in no danger of performing at a high level under Fangio. Not until he gets the players he thinks he’s playing with.

  • willbest

    Brock Osweiler is the AFC player of the week for his performance against the Bears defense.

    • CanadaBear

      Not sure it was that good of a performance but you gotta give it up to him, his one mission was to not fuck it up and he didn’t.

      • willbest

        I looked through the stat lines. It was a pretty poor week for the AFC. But it clearly should have gone to DeAndre Hopkins and his 5 catches for 118 yards and 2 TDs on 12 targets against Revis.
        KC also had an RB roll the Chargers for 92 on 11 carries and 2 TDs but then it is the Chargers.
        Realistically the only thing that kept the Broncos in that game was Alshon Jeffery being out.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Although he tried hard to fuck it up with that delay of game call. That was rookie stuff.

    • That’s BS. You switch QBs and and Osweiler has 3 INTs and 175 yds

    • Irish Sweetness

      That’s a joke.

  • AlbertInTucson

    “Green Bay’s defense hasn’t been great this season but…”

      Saw the GB meme of the greatest QBs in packers history Starr, Favre, Rodgers, and Cutler and they are all going to be there for thanksgiving. Do people not realize the kind of kick in the nuts that is to Rodgers since apparently he isn’t capable of winning the games on his own.

      • TBC

        As the Great Johnny Waffle is quick to remind folks, football is a team game. Cutler can’t win games for Green Bay all by himself, Rodgers helps out too!

        • Cutty of Olivet Nazarene

          Thanksgiving has gotten off to a quick start in the Waffle family. Uncles are in from Oshkosh, Milwaukee, West Allis and Green Bay proper. I’m making them stay at a hotel because they should have enough money saved by living in their pre-fab houses or trailers or whatever the fuck they live in up there.

          Shots and beers flowed freely and honest questions about football were fired back and forth. I asked which coach is fired after the Pack :
          a. doesn’t make the playoffs at all
          b. is bounced out in the first round

          Laughter and shifty glances. The majority settled on the OC and one lone vote for both McCarthy and Capers. Money was then placed on the game. Fucking pussies.
