  • Irish Sweetness

    Hi J’Marcus.

    I’m your biggest fan. I’m playing in the NFL just like you and I want you to know that you’re my biggest inspiration. Just like you I’m talentless and cant block for shit. I don’t know how long I can get away with it, but I sure am grateful for all this money, when I should be flipping burgers at Wendys.

    Yours,

    Vladimir Ducasse.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      they both should have met already… both drafted in 2010, Webb in round 7 and Ducasse in round 2. I am pretty sure there is a support group in the off season for crappy O-linemen. I thought i heard that the group took a Carnival Cruise together this past off season.

      • Big Mike

        Ducasse is going to do ok. Jmarcus is a piece of work. Way to mellow. But god bless him for having a 5 year career after being a 7th round pick. He’s doing something right. Glad he’s doing it somewhere else.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Why will he do ok?

          • Big Mike

            Well OK isn’t really an endorsement, but as Long settles in at RT, gets the club of his hand, Ducasse will be between a solid veteran and a rising star. Ducasse is better at guard than Tackle. So, as I said, he’ll be ok. He’s a rental player anyhow. 1 year contract. Will struggle to make team next year. With Long at RT, the Bears will go into the off season looking for a guard, rather than a right tackle

          • Irish Sweetness

            Yeah, a left tackle and a guard. First order of business.

          • Big Mike

            Unless Long continues to ascend and they put him at LT in the off season. I’m not sure how he projects on the left side.

            You would think that teams would get the fact that if you build an offensive line with 5 studs, all the rest of your picks, free agents and guys on your roster are all BETTER. A great o-line can make an average QB, near elite. Which makes receivers better, RB’s better etc.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Same the other side, just build the foundation in the trenches and everything else follows. Instead, they’re all cutting each other’s throats looking for the skill positions,

    • MB30SD

      Ps, Wendy’s sux

      (They have square burgers. .. fucking square! Smh)

      • Trac

        They used to have the best burger when I moved to the states in 77. Now they do indeed suck.

        • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

          Yep

    • BearDown100393

      Same guy. Ducasse is just an alias Twitter handle.

  • willbest

    Oh new thread. 14 hours of football, lets do this.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Got the Jets game now .. .then Ireland v Italy in the rugby .. .then the Bears game … then three hours of sleep … then work.

  • Big Mike

    1:00 outside of the national spotlight. That’s where we belong this year. Helps to not be playing one of the top 5 teams in the league for a change. VERY frustrated with Alshon. He could have grown a damn leg by now. Been out since July with boo boos.

    Full strength 2015 Bears. When will we see them? Before or after the bye week?

    Big Mike out.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    FYI for all Fantasy Football Players, London games start this week. so check your lineups before 9:30 AM CST.

    • Irish Sweetness

      And remove any Dolphins players from your lineup.

      Added a straight-up 4 team accumulator to go with ATL -6.5, SEA -9.5.

      CIN / GB / ATL / ARI.

      Come on boys, whatcha got goin’?

      • MB30SD

        Did you watch the boks dismantle your neighbors. .. laddie?

        • Irish Sweetness

          No, but I did watch Australia kick England out of the tournament in their own back yard!

          • Trac

            No worries mate.

          • MB30SD

            yep, saw that. My CEO is a fucking Wombat. I just wish they’re get killed. would make my day and shut him up. He’s still taking me to task over the japan game. cunt.

        • Trac

          All my teams are doing lekkerrrrr!!

          • MB30SD

            All my teams. SMH

          • Trac

            hahaha

    • a little late now, but 9:30 am EST, 8:30am CST

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        my bad

    • Yeah. totally forgot about that.
      Well, East Coasters get 1 wk to see how it feels to watch early games on the West Coast.

      I had a rule: no drinking before noon.

      But the Bears were only shown at bars usually at 10am.

      So I went a few times, but I always got carried away (and seeing the Bears always drives a person to drink), and I would be there from like 9:30 am to 9:30 PM.

      That’s like a full day at work.

      I no longer do that.

  • AlbertInTucson

    No Jeffrey, again.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Brandon 90 yards already in the 1st Qtr ….

    And check this out for false reporting:

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000548369/article/matt-forte-among-players-bears-would-consider-trading

    Or is it?

    • Big Mike

      blah

    • BillW

      Definitely not a fire sale. More like a garage sale. Here’s some stuff we don’t need but someone else might want if we offer it on the cheap.

      • willbest

        Given that they released Vereen, I can imagine Pace just posted to the GM forums (cutting Allen, Bostic, and Vereen) anybody want to trade for them before they hit waivers PM me.

      • Not a very good garage sale at that.

  • Irish Sweetness

    That was the only way the Fins were going to score, go the length of the field on two penalties.

  • Irish Sweetness

    So do we have to wait until gametime to see if Cutty’s playing?

    Don’t think it’ll be long before Beast is falling out with Fitzy ….

  • The GP

    Charleston SC is a mess

  • BerwynBomber

    Would not be surprised if Philbin were the first HC canned this year.

    • Like I said. The Bears might be down, but we’re like a recovering alcoholic who knows they fucked up and are putting shit back together.

      Other teams are still in a drunken stupor, having yet to hit rock bottom yet. The Fins, Lions and Saints to name a few.

      • BerwynBomber

        Agreed but I would say Saints are a matter of bad front office moves whereas a team like the Fish seems mostly about coaching.

  • Shady

    The Glaze reporting Cutty starting today (<100%)

    • Irish Sweetness

      KNEW IT !! YES!!

      And Vegas knew too.

      • Yeah, the Raiders were only favored by 2.5. That’s too low with Clausen.

        • willbest

          Its still a home game and as far as the raiders are concerned its being played at 10am

    • That’ll be funny if he rides an exercise bike out of the tunnel.

  • Viva

    I heart Cutty!!!

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000548534/article/bears-qb-jay-cutler-expected-to-start-sunday

    Take those bags off your heads boys. Golden boy under center for your Chicago Bears.

    GAME ON!

    • BillW

      What time is it out in your part of the world Irish? That is what time will it be at kickoff?

      • Irish Sweetness

        Midnight. Then when the clocks change over your side, they’re one in the morning.

        • BillW

          God and Halas love you.
          Edit. God, Halas, and Sweetness love you and get you through your work day tomorrow. Easier with a win I’m sure.

          • Irish Sweetness

            May they be with us today !!! I want to walk into the office tired but whistling.

  • willbest

    That seemed more flagrant of a PI than the stuff called against the Jets? Is the fix in for some the back door cover? Then again, he is entitled to his space and the ball was under thrown so I suppose it could have been deemed unmatchable by the reciever

  • Irish Sweetness

    Fuggit. Went in on the Bears at 7/5. The OAK secondary is in rags.

    GO CUTTY !!

  • willbest

    1. Leno might have better left side skills than right side. But I cringe at Cutty being out there with limited mobility.
    2. Just because somebody is a serviceable right tackle after being a pro-bowl guard doesn’t mean he can play on the left side.
    3. If Cutler plays today it is for one reason. Cutler plays football if the doctors let him.
    4. Truth
    5. Him and Cutler aren’t off to a good start this season.

  • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

    Bear Down.

    Cutty playing! Today we get off the shnide!

  • BillW

    Demand for tickets went up this morning possibly on cutty news. My son couldn’t go last minute and put tix on NFL exchange. Got face value this morning

    Go Bears! 1 and 0 starting today!

  • haha Glazer reporting all the other GMs called up Bears for firesale. Kinda like everyone rushing to get soup from the Soup Nazis before he fled to Argentina.

    Bears responded, “Wow there, sailors. No firesale…but let’s if the price is right…”

  • Irish Sweetness

    After we let the opening kickoff come back for 7, we should be good ….

    Dear Lord,

    I’ve been a good boy recently, so obviously I have some demands.

    1. You weren’t exactly generous to Leno and Ducasse when you were handing out talent, so how about a little extra diesel in their tanks today.

    2. No more kickoff returns for TDs, mmkay?

    3. Look after our boy.

    4. I know you’re supposedly not into violence, but let our defense make a bloody mess and a mockery out of their O.

    5. I mean REALLY bloody.

    Thanks big guy !

  • 2. Bushrod concussion should have opened door for Bears to move Kyle
    Long to LT for rest of career. Indecision about Long’s position is odd. – Jeff

    Point taken, but 3 small issues.

    1. This ain’t Madden. You can’t just take an OG and make him a RT then LT seamlessly. Heck, even in Madden the ratings go down when you move an OG to LT. Needs some reps.

    2. Moving from one side to another side harder than switching position.

    3. Maybe Bears should resign Long to an OG/RT deal THEN move him to LT slowly but surely.

    Would def like to see Long start at least two games at LT by the end of the season though.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Agreed. Maybe Tayo sees LT action before long unless Leno perks up.

      T minus 27 minutes.

      GO BEARS !!!!!

  • So much for Jeff’s Tawain fear-boner.

    Raiders declared RB Taiwan Jones, DT C.J. Wilson, CB

    Kevin McGill, DE Benson Mayowa, LB Ben Heeney, OL Jon Feliciano and OL Matt McCants inactive for Week 4 against the Bears.Jones (foot) missed Wednesday and Thursday before getting in a limited practice on Friday. He could be ready next week. Wilson (calf), McGill (foot) and Mayowa (knee) did not practice at all this week. – Roto

    • Bears inactives

      Bears declared Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) inactive for Week 4 against the Raiders.

      Jeffery was all but ruled out on Friday. The Bears are reportedly optimistic Jeffery will be able to play Week 5 against KansasCity. Chicago also declared T Jermon Bushrod, P Pat O’Donnell, QB David
      Fales, RB Ka’Deem Carey, C Hroniss Grasu and DL Jeremiah Ratliff inactive for Week 4. – Roto

    • Irish Sweetness

      Are they all starters?

      7/5 brother. Money for old rope.

  • Irish Sweetness

    And Revis picks off Tannehill in the endzone. Game over.

    EDIT:

    Aaaaand then Chris Ivory fumbles it away again.

    Aaaaand then it gets overturned. Game over.

    GO BEARS!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH !!!!!!!

    • Revis just ended Philbin’s career.
      Might have done MIA a solid.

    • willbest

      Finally. Jets have be 1/4 second away from 7 sacks which I would have preferred they get.

  • Big John from Tucson

    Bear Down!!!

    • Irish Sweetness

      Bear down Big John!! Drink responsibly, don’t drink and drive, enjoy the victory today!

      WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHH !!!!!

  • T’Challa

    Hoping for a good game from the Bears today.

    Bear Down!

  • willbest

    CBS is going to cut away from this game if it isn’t over right?

    • Johnnywad

      God I hope so.

  • Cutty in means a HEAVY dose of the run game to protect him. FF Forte owners smile everywhere.

    • willbest

      heh. Pickles meant a heavy dose of the run game.

    • Irish Sweetness

      I hope not, OAK are tough against the run but crappy against the pass.

  • Forte for sale, but would you pay 80% of the original price for a 10 yr old Mercedz?

    According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, the Bears are open to trading Matt Forte.

    While La Canfora’s source said the price for
    Forte would be high and not just a salary dump, that could change as the October 28 trade deadline nears. Forte is in a contract year and unlikely to be part of the Bears’ rebuilding movement. At this point, La
    Canfora said it would take at least a second or third-round pick to move Forte. That’s a steep price for a running back who turns 30 in December.- Roto

    • willbest

      Suppose it depends on how good Forte is and if say some playoff contending team loses their RB

  • willbest

    Send in the rookie

    • Shady

      Inactive.

      • willbest

        Well that sucks

      • Irish Sweetness

        You are fkn shitting me ….

  • Irish Sweetness

    Uh oh ….

  • Shady

    Fucking Leno are you kidding me?

  • BearDown100393

    Leno may have just ended our center’s season.

  • Shady

    Slauce the new center.

    • willbest

      Get Cutty out of there.

  • SC Dave

    Lets hope will is ok

  • SC Dave

    There is that calmer cutler. Love that version of jay

    • Irish Sweetness

      Man, if he could run …

      • willbest

        Yeah he would have cut back and run it in himself

  • Shady

    ROYALE WITH CHEEEEEESE!

  • willbest

    Oh Fing pinktober.

  • BearDown100393

    Cutler willed that drive. He’s playing on a bad wheel with a highly compromised offensive line.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Oh Robbie.

  • SC Dave

    Tell you what, compadres… its a bit wet here..

    • Irish Sweetness

      You at the game, Dave?

        No… I’m in South Carolina

  • RenoBear

    WTF Robbie Gould???? Duuuuuuuuude

  • Bender McLugh

    Aw, Jamarcus looks so cute in silver

    • SC Dave

      But his blocks look just as ugly

  • Bender McLugh

    CD running with the TE like knows what day it is

  • BearDown100393

    Anything mentioned about the field? It was tarped over night. Looks decent so far.

  • BearDown100393

    Cooper appears to have the short spikes on today. Good.

  • Bender McLugh

    Porter on Cooper all day? If so, that should prove interesting

    • Irish Sweetness

      So far so good!

      • Bender McLugh

        Right?

  • Shady

    Jamarcus Webb has a look on his face like, “Someone is actually paying me to play pro football?? Alright!”

  • Irish Sweetness

    Um, Marc, aren’t you supposed to be in front of the ball?

  • SC Dave

    That was a three and out. Wonder of wonders!

  • SC Dave

    You cant *really* want us to trade that guy?

  • BearDown100393

    If the line doesn’t find a way to protect, the Raiders are going to kill Cutler.

  • SC Dave

    Wooot!!! THATS what a slot guy looks like!

  • Irish Sweetness

    Eddie gotz the skills, see?

  • SC Dave

    Wow… uni got fucking labelled

  • BearDown100393

    Smart play by Lee. Not just for recovering the football but staying down. Take the loss and move on to the next play.

    • willbest

      Worth the 6th rounder?

      • Irish Sweetness

        We cut Brandon Dunn too.

      • BearDown100393

        Lol, during games I only care about the immediate results. In between or during the off season is when I get to second guess the long term ramifications.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Wasn’t expecting much anyway considering on where that drive started.

  • BearDown100393

    That was a perfect punt with great hang time.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Gould was kicking that PAT wide BTW. We need to be going for two today.

  • SC Dave

    D looking competent

    • Bender McLugh

      I like your good mood my man

    • SC Dave

      Wel, and a little lucky too

  • BearDown100393

    Tracy Porter is due to intercept Carr.

    • Johnnywad

      Hes worrying me undercutting so much. Gotta keep Cooper in front of him. So far so good though

      • Irish Sweetness

        Yeah, but he’ll take one back for 6, I hope.

  • Pissed Off

    Tracy porter looks spry

  • SC Dave

    Um… nice recovery, Jay?

    • willbest

      Line is going to get Jay killed

    • SC Dave

      Kind of a miracle.play. looked like rodgers

  • BearDown100393

    Justin Tuck purposefully went for Cutler’s legs on the tackle. The line simply cannot let #6 take the hits.

    • willbest

      Not a whole lot they would do there

  • BearDown100393

    One less receiver for the Bears defense to have to worry about now.

    • Bender McLugh

      Missed that, who went down

      • BearDown100393

        Crabtree. Ankle.

      • Bender McLugh

        Crabtree

  • Irish Sweetness

    Crabtree in agony? Oh no. Get well soon, son.

  • I don’t think the Oline is doing too horrible considering that Leno is LT, Slauson is C and Ducasse is LG.
    Like I said at the start of the season, it’s rare for an Oline to remain in tact the whole season. Gotta respond.

    • And naturally, Grassu is so studly, he’s inactive today.

      • Bender McLugh

        I don’t understand why he’s inactive

        • Irish Sweetness

          It’s bewildering – he could back up your center and play guard.

    • Bender McLugh

      Agreed, much better than expected

    • BearDown100393

      The combination of a mobile limited Jay Cutler and a patchwork offensive line on Park District turf….. woof.

  • The GP

    Fill Shae fill

  • The GP

    That was a TD by cooper

  • BearDown100393

    Challenge. I think it was a TD. Dead camera dude in the endzone after getting crushed.

  • Irish Sweetness

    We need to be putting Carr to the crunch, they’ll kill us on the deep stuff with Cooper and that rookie.

    • The GP

      Sherris lost him

  • Irish Sweetness

    Did he have that under control?

    • willbest

      Vegas says he did

    • Bender McLugh

      Not so sure, but it don’t matta

  • Irish Sweetness

    I hope Gould doesn’t cost us this game, yes it was blocked, but it was going wide anyway.

    • Bender McLugh

      lol……..I can’t remember the last time Robbie last a game for us

      • willbest

        He was pretty bad last year and then went to IR. And that was after he lost us the MN game in 2013 and a playoff bid. For which he was rewarded with a fat contract

        • Bender McLugh

          Never happened I SAID never happened!!!

    • willbest

      I am not convinced he is a Bear next year

  • BearDown100393

    Head contact on Cutler and the Bears are flagged for holding. I hope Ed Norton has a huge pay day off this one.

    • willbest

      It was established 2 weeks ago that Cutler doesn’t get helmet to Hemet contact. Or facemasks

    • SC Dave

      Draft Kings rulez!!

  • Irish Sweetness

    BS – penalties should have offset.

    • BearDown100393

      Holding offsets roughing the passer?

      • Bender McLugh

        Yes it would

        • BearDown100393

  • BillW

    Why do we run on first all the time? Cmon gase.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Better make up for this with a TD Zack.

  • been catching some Texans-Falcons.

    Texans on O are clown shoes. Delay of game. Then followed by another delay of game right after. Then.time out.
    Then, Foster’s own Olinemen hits it out of his arm. Then, the wr fumbles it.
    Whoever started Falcons D is laughing

  • Irish Sweetness

    Go for it on 4th too, Gould might miss the FG.

    • Bender McLugh

      Come I now, had he missed this year yet? I didn’t think so

      • Irish Sweetness

        He missed the PAT – it was going wide when it was blocked

        • Bender McLugh

          He got curve skills

      • willbest

        You mean other than the PAT he just missed?

  • Shady

    Gad John Fox is chomping da shit outta dat gum.

  • DaMurph

    Why does every coach think Forte can run between the tackles inside the 5?

    • Johnnywad

      I would have preferred a Langford carry there.

      • DaMurph

        Anything except Forte, his track record in this situation speaks for itself.

        • can’t really blame a RB when there are 2 guys hitting him behind the LOS.

          • DaMurph

            Not blaming him, just sayin his track record down there isnt good.

    • Pissed Off

      If we can’t score with forte from the 1 we don’t deserve the td

  • BillW

    Needed to get something from int.

    • Johnnywad

      They did

    • Irish Sweetness

      But if you don’t make it in, they have the ball on the 1.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Okay Nanny, another interception please.

  • Bender McLugh

    Oh snap, Goldman

  • Shady

    Goldhaus.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Aaaand they’re on the 1 anyway.

    • EnderWiggin

      lol

  • DaMurph

    Goldman loses his cherry, nice play Eddie!

  • Irish Sweetness

    Hail mary

  • Irish Sweetness

    That was pathetic right there.

    • Bender McLugh

      Yeah, go into the half with the lead combined with the o line on that first play, Fox saw enough it seems

  • BerwynBomber

    OAK is an improving but still piss poor team. Feels like we should be up by two scores.

    Don’t know WTH Fox was thinking not calling TO after the Goldman sack. A guy with Fox’s experience should know better.

    • SC Dave

      It was a surprise. W a s it the last one available?

  • Pissed Off

    Let’s keep our foot on thier throat here

  • BerwynBomber

    Damn, I had a hunch about the G-men today too.

  • willbest

    Rolle hurt. Send out Vereen. Oh wait.

  • willbest

    Wow Bears D is looking like a not horrible play this week

  • EnderWiggin

    Jenkins sack dance reminds me of the Waterboy’s mama.

  • Johnnywad

    Hats off to Pace for the Jarvis Jenkins pickup. Nice player

  • Jenkins 3 sacks in last two games. I liked him since PS.
    Maybe he needs to cool it on the dance though (see, Houston)

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    well fuck

  • willbest

    Offense is letting the D down.

  • BillW

    Wow. A run on first down. Who would have guessed except everyone.

    • willbest

      Rewind 1 year. “Why won’t they fing run it on first down?”

      • BillW

        Balance daniel san

  • SC Dave

    Trade forte!

    • willbest

      Only going to get a 6th now

      • SC Dave

        Trade our best player anyway!

        • SC Dave

          Ok, I’m done now

  • Irish Sweetness

    Is that 6 TDs for Devonta Freeman in 2 weeks?

    • willbest

      Dude decided he is going to beast

  • SC Dave

    C’mon D!!

  • willbest

    WTF Cooper has been in the league for 4 weeks. Why is he getting special treatment

  • Irish Sweetness

    BULLSHIT CALL!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bender McLugh

    Out of bounds, no td

  • The GP

    He was a Shae too short for that ball

  • Bender McLugh

    Shae GET ON UP man, work on your hops

  • Irish Sweetness

    They should have been punting. BULLSHIT.

    • SC Dave

      Draft Kings rulez!!

      • Irish Sweetness

        Apparently you can win 2 million dollars by investing 35. I googled that guy to see if it was real. Can’t find him.

        • Scharfinator

          “Investing”

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    surprise there was not a flag for hitting a defenseless player

  • willbest

    Still in my doghouse Fuller

  • Irish Sweetness

    Jameis Winston 3 INTS.

    • Johnnywad

      Good

  • EnderWiggin

    Once a week Ducasse.

    • Irish Sweetness

      We wish it was only once a week.

  • Irish Sweetness

    That could have been a pick 6 if Ducasse hadn’t fouled.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Gase trying hard not to get a first down.

  • The GP

    Can’t we go deep to Royal?

    • EnderWiggin

      yeah, two yards deep on first.

    • willbest

      Isn’t Bellamy the speed guy

  • EnderWiggin

    Cutty giving new meaning to the term “shotgun”

    • Bender McLugh

      Abandoning the run so early, makes me think Gase doesnt trust this oline combo

  • The GP

    Come on Meredith

  • willbest

    So Vegas has the Bear’s covering with the under

  • Pissed Off

    Nice throws on first and 2nd there jay

    • Johnnywad

      Man you are biased.

      • Pissed Off

        Now way dude I like him he just frustrates me

        • Irish Sweetness

          Not Ducasse?

          • Pissed Off

            No cutty

        • Johnnywad

          Everybody but Aaron Rodgers misses a few. Cutler is playing very well.

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        well you know Cutty is evil and sucks so much he is causing the drought in California.

    • Irish Sweetness

      8 in a row before that … and he hit Meredith clean. But yeah …

      • Pissed Off

        I know right should have kept the drive going but he wiffed on first and second to wide open guys

  • Irish Sweetness

    Can we cut Ducasse in the middle of a game?

    • Johnnywad

      I hope so. Hard to imagine he gets to keep starting. Injuries notwithstanding

  • Bender McLugh

    CD following everyone for that jump over the pile. So much potential, that mofo

    • Johnnywad

      Shea could well be a long term starter for the Bears. But he’s Hunter Hillenmeyer. He needs two more linebackers next to him that are better than he is.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Timu with time will work his way in there.

  • Irish Sweetness

    BLITZ PLEASE !!

  • Irish Sweetness

    Jefe not loving the D? Murray has 47 yards against supposedly a terrible run defense.

    • Bender McLugh

      Improvement improvement improvement

  • Irish Sweetness

    Somebody tell Adam Jahns we’re missing our center and the refs have fucked us.

  • Bender McLugh

    Wilson’s next step……force PI. Check.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Gould is casting a long shadow over this game.

    • willbest

      Since it is probably going to come down to him lets hope he doesn’t muff it

  • Bender McLugh

    Stay healthy Wilson, liking what you bring to a full game

    • Johnnywad

      Looking like an actual #3 today

      • Bender McLugh

        What he was drafted to become, keep it going you’d dude

    • Irish Sweetness

      I’m liking touchdowns. Let’s have it!

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    WTF!!!!

    • Johnnywad

      Seriously. WTF?

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        Refs should be fined for bad calls.

  • Bender McLugh

    Forte yelling at Vlad.

    • Johnnywad

      So was I.

      • Irish Sweetness

        And me!

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          me too.

  • The GP

    This game is just sitting there for the taking but Gase needs to show en something

  • Irish Sweetness

    WTF kind of call was that on 3rd and 18 ?

  • Irish Sweetness

    Okay Robbie, you needed to make that.

  • Bender McLugh

    Yeah get rid of Robbie…..riiiiight.

    BEAR DOWN MOFOS

    • Irish Sweetness

      Well, it should be 20-17. We’ll return to that later.

      • Bender McLugh

        Cuuuurrrrve

        • Irish Sweetness

          :o)

    • Trac

      Jay Gould is killing us?

  • Pissed Off

    If douchekasse makes the right block forte runs for a while there . team looks unified and happy on the sidelines

    • Bender McLugh

      Hope for Vlad maybe

  • Bender McLugh

    Gase seems to be calling plays he knows/thinks this oline combo can handle. And they can’t handle much

  • The GP

    I love the way Shae fell on top of that pile

  • Bender McLugh

    Amos playing well

  • The GP

    Nacho Libre!

  • Irish Sweetness

    NACHOOOOOO !!! YES!!!!!!

  • The GP

    We could use Jeffery. But I get it, the hot tub feels good

    • Bender McLugh

      I mean doesn’t it?

  • Pissed Off

    Cutler’d

  • Shady

    It was inevitable, wasn’t it?

    • Bender McLugh

      With woodson always

      • Same old Cutler.

        • Irish Sweetness

          3rd and fucking one it shouldn’t even have been a throw. You secure the first down and then take shots.

          • The design was good. Aggressive. He was OPEN.
            Jay just doing what he does.

          • Bender McLugh

            Insert Waffle response here

    • The GP

      Woodson loves Jay

  • The GP

    Oh Jay

  • Irish Sweetness

    I fuking knew they’d throw it. Gase you fuck.

    • Bender McLugh

      LANGFORD. where

  • Pissed Off

    We can have that in the 1st. Three quarters not halfway thru the 4th in a tight game

  • beninnorcal

    If Cutler put’s that in front of Bennett that’s a huge play. Bad throw by Cutty.

    • Irish Sweetness

      And a TERRIBLE play call on 3rd and 1.

      • Bender McLugh

        LANGFORD…where?

  • DaMurph

    Crabtree is killin us

    • Shady

      Carr can sling it. Need McPhee to come up big.

  • beninnorcal

    I can’t defend Cutty’s pass but if we lose, that’s what everyone remembers, not the other two TO’s.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Nope. Robbie missing an extra point

      • Irish Sweetness

        And that bullshit call on porter let the Raiders score instead of punt.

  • Irish Sweetness

    BLITZ JESUS CHRIST BLITZ !!!

    • Bender McLugh

      There we go

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      wow they listened to you

      • Bender McLugh

        Proof that ALL CAPS works

  • DaMurph

    Can someone cover that motherfucker Crabtree

  • The GP

    It’d be nice if Charles thanked Jay during his Canton induction speech

    • Bender McLugh

      Fuck that fudge packet

  • Irish Sweetness

    Interception right here.

  • Bender McLugh

    Shae blitzing =

    • Bender McLugh

      I didn’t leave anything out of that equation

    • The GP

      It’s cute. Like a cat chasing a laser pointer

  • Bender McLugh

    McPheeeeee

  • The GP

    sea bass hat

  • Irish Sweetness

    Game saving tackle Nanny.

  • Irish Sweetness

    BLOCK.

  • Bender McLugh

    Alrighty Jay, got em right where we want em

  • Irish Sweetness

    Route one to Wilson. Fuck this. Robbie needs redemption.

  • EnderWiggin

    Our O line in a two minute drill… nervous.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Believe.

  • Johnnywad

    Please no first down run off the guard

  • It’s on Jay now. Let’s see what’s he made of. Carr drove his team down.

  • Johnnywad

    Gase is becoming predictable. I’m trying not to overreact

    • BillW

      I’ve been there since the 1st

    • Irish Sweetness

      Throwing downfield when the game was over if we got a yard was not too predictable.

  • BillW

    Did he say 2 minutes to play at Wrigley?

    • Cubsnlinux

      Yeah, that’s exactly what he said. For old times sake 😉

  • BearDown100393

    No flag huh.

  • DaMurph

    Come on Robbie

  • beninnorcal

    wtf?! why don’t the ly clock it there anfmd get another few short plays?!!

  • Trac

    Its going to feel good to see the bears finally win a game.

    • beninnorcal

      I dont feel good here, Trac

    • beninnorcal

      Good call Trac. I love you

      • Trac

        Gotta believe ben.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Robbie. Please son. Please.

    • Bender McLugh

      TRADE

  • DaMurph

    Take that my Irish brotha!! BOOM

    • Irish Sweetness

      I believed! Robbie is great at the FGs.

  • beninnorcal

    Yeeeeaahhhhhhh!!!!!!

  • Bender McLugh

    1-3

    DONT CARE

    BEAR DOWN!!

  • Irish Sweetness

    What a fucking game. Jay Cutler is money. Robbie gets redemption. Kudos to Spencer Lanning also.

    MONEYYYYY !!!!!!!

  • The GP

    What is Waffle doing in the stands right now?

    • EnderWiggin

      Shivin’ the Black Hole dude.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Fighting a Raider fan.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Oh shit … KO return. Squib.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    god damn i almost shit my pants on that return

  • BearDown100393

    Every game should end this way.

  • Irish Sweetness

    NACHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

  • willbest

    I think I had a mini heart attack there at the end

    • beninnorcal

      Thats exactly what I just told my Buddy

    • Irish Sweetness

      Can you imagine they’d scored ?

  • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

    GOOOOUUUUUUUULLLLLLLDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!

    • beninnorcal

      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • EnderWiggin

    The Cutty/Tice hug at the end gave me the heebie jeebies.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      hug of consolation from Cutty. Hey Tice, i am sorry you still have to coach Webb.

    • BearDown100393

      Jay’s jubilation is a sight to behold.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Mike Tice hugs Cutty. Loser.

    MONEYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!

    3 for 3 today with GB, ARI and SEA to come.

    Thank you Jay. What a game.

  • EnderWiggin

    Bring on Captain Kool Aid!

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      its a start, 13-3 here we come

  • Irish Sweetness

    I’m so fkn happy I can’t go asleep now. Where can I get post-game talk?

    • The GP

      670 Score radio.com site

      • Irish Sweetness

        Listening now, thanks. Have a tradewind on me, GP.

  • Johnnywad

    This defense is not terrible

    • Bender McLugh

      Against non-SB teams

      • Johnnywad

        Correct. I’ll add, the defense would have looked far better the prior game and a half with Cutler running the offense. Gase and Fox know they can control the clock with Cutler

        • Bender McLugh

          Absolutely. New coaches & scheme, and they respond. Love it.

          • Huge Bear’s Penis

            New coaches that the players RESPECT!

  • Irish Sweetness

    I checked the scoreboard on NFL.COM. It’s all grayed out and it says we won by 2 point and the game is over. We won. We definitely beat the raiders.

    YAY! YAY JAY !

    • Cubsnlinux

      Wilbon and Kap were licking their chops when Jay threw that INT. Disgusting.

  • Bender McLugh

    Fuck yeah gettin my drink on

    • Irish Sweetness

      Enjoy. I think I’ll rub one out in the shower … the champagne of victory !

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        Too Much!!!!

      • Viva

        Don’t get any love gunk on you.

      • beninnorcal

        Do it Irish. YOLO

    • Bender on a bender like Bender Rodriquez

      • Bender McLugh

        Might be

    • SC Dave

      I’d join you, but there’s a curfew in S.C. starting at 6pm. Parts of this state are a fucking mess. Kartrina-type mess. Except we won’t blame the president. I hope.

      • MB30SD

        wtf???

        • SC Dave

          Weather. It’s been badass. Talking a “1000 year” sort of rainfall in parts of the state (presumably based on the geographic record, although it could just be histrionics). Not here in Columbia, but a bit north of here and all the way to the coast. Glad I’m not in Charleston or Myrtle Beach.

          That damn hurricane better not change it’s mind. The jetstream, high pressure system, and stalled low off the Georgia coast has been quite the combination.

        • SC Dave

          That, and it will be a couple days at least until the rivers crest. We have a fuckload of water coming our way from the upstate and western North Carolina.

          • MB30SD

            Oh right. forgot. stay safe maings.

          • SC Dave

            Plan to. Thanks compadre.

  • BerwynBomber

    We have a pass rush. Saw hints of it even in the GB and AZ games and the last two weeks it has been more than hint. Also, Robbie is still Robbie.

  • Irish Sweetness

    And we did that with Slauson at Center, Leno Jr (pretty good I thought), Omameh, Vladimir Ducasse … Rolle taken out, no AJ, no Kevin White …..

    …YO … MESSILE !!! … check out our shitty roster … where you at son ???

    • RenoBear

      Yeah I wonder where that fucker went? Not missing him. Comes on here one day and spouts negative shit and the Score radio show mentality, irritates a bunch of people and bails thankfully. Good riddance

      • SC Dave

        This. All. This.

  • BerwynBomber

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog “Charles Woodson sees ball. Goes and gets it. Martellus Bennett sees ball. Watches Woodson go and get it.”

    That was just a HOFer making a play. No reason to bash Uni for it. Woodson’s INT was similar to Matthews’ except with Woodson it was 1-on-1.

    • It’s never Cutty’s fault with Jeff glasses.

      • BerwynBomber

        Woodson just made a helluva play but yeah I know what you mean. Obviously.

        • Irish Sweetness

          The refs really tried to kill us. A couple of bullshit imaginary penalties

          • SC Dave

            But we have Robbie, so all good.

    • beninnorcal

      Cutty was off the mark on that one, had he set his feet and led Uni, it’ve been a chunk and the game would’ve ended sooner.

  • chitownproud85

    1-3. Next stop, 13-3! BEAR DOWN GODDAMNIT! WHILE THERE ARE STILL…BEARS…TO BE DOWNED? No. Bear down. BEAR DOWN! NOT BEAR DOWN! We won. I’m drunk. Go fuck yourself.

    I give my left nut to know how ripped Waffle is right now.

    • beninnorcal

      The Trade Winds are blowing like he’ll be blowin chunks in a few hours.

    • I have a feeling we’ll find out in T-minus 4 hours lol

  • BerwynBomber

    Btw, thought the O-line did a decent job, all things considered. Kept Jay relatively clean and gave him some large, clean pockets. Run game was somewhat bottled but that seemed the one thing OAK was resolved not to give us.

    • Viva

      I’d like to see Grasu next week…

      • Irish Sweetness

        Nice o know we have him. Slauson’s tone suggested it doesn’t look good for Will.

      • That’ll most likely depend if Bushrod is ready to roll.
        Plus, as iffy as Slauson was at C, I imagine that after a week of reps, he might improve.
        Ducasse might be better at LG where he can work with Slauson at C.

        I’m not sold on Grasu, tbh. Looks to weak at the point of attack. Probably why he’s not even active.. But we’ll see.

        • Viva

          He did look like he needed to add some man weight…

        • Irish Sweetness

          Nah, surely Grasu plays. Slauson said he’d had six snaps all year. Can’t have those shitty snaps, need Slauson back at guard. Leno looked okay, maybe Omameh replaces Ducasse?

  • Best part about winning. No trolls.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Check out the comments on NFL.COM. Raider fans saying that the play-calling robbed them of a victory over the worst team in football.

      • beninnorcal

        Raidahs fans are idiots.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Uni had 11 grabs for 83 and a TD.

    Slauson (on the score) said that Nanny gave a team speech where everyone locked arms and they became a TEAM.

  • Cheesedicks already getting calls. Big surprise
    Meanwhile, the refs raped us on tv

    • SC Dave

      Zebras have no shame.

  • The GP

    Niners coach looks like a Soprano crew member

  • MB30SD

    Yonny… you shall now attend erra home game.

    – Us

    • SC Dave

      I will, by proxy, thumbs up this post for everyone on da blog.

      • MB30SD

        thank you sir

  • Guy I’m most impressed with. CB Porter. Out side of one broken play where Cooper made a great catch, he essentially shut down a very good WR.

    Jenkins and McPhee are rolling. Once they get Rat in back, that might be a wrecking crew.

    I’m a lil worried about Rolle. Just our luck, he never misses a game, second he joins Bears, he gets hurt.

    Did McMannis take over for him?

    • Irish Sweetness

      Plus, they called a bullshit P.I. on him that let them score …..

      {WE KNOW, IRISH!!}

      Well … they did …

      • MB30SD

        Hey Irish, two dates this week with sisters maing. both 28, 5’10”, hot. You would be proud.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Whoa, back up .. they are sisters … TO EACH OTHER?

          Same night, or different dates ???

          • MB30SD

            Hahaha… no, they are black girls. (or were you being factious…can’t tell)

            One tonight, one tues night.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Nubians???? Damn. Sistahs, gotcha.

            Post that shit man, You’ve got photos, I know.

          • MB30SD

            Hahahahaha… they’re both really cute.

            I don’t get the big deal. They look the same (basically), taste the same, feel the same, smell the same… it’s all just pussy maings. They fall on the same 1-10 scale as all the others… white, yellow, brown, black, pink, it don’t matter.

            I have one you’d love. I never post anything these lovey girls send me. It’s a private bond between their titties and pink parts and my spankbank. Sorry maings

          • No wonder he went to Nigeria.

    • Irish Sweetness

      And how about Nacho, eh? Awesome. Don’t know who replaced Rolle …

  • MB30SD

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    Do the “Bears should tank” people really not feel great right now? If you don’t I feel sorry for you. Joy is fun.

    …so is drunk.

    • Irish Sweetness

      See the game man?

      • MB30SD

        Nope. Had the little ones. We did the trampoline park, then shoe shopping (my 6 yr old daughter picked out the gold sequined sneakers… of course.), then lunch then home to naptime. Was refreshing on nfl.com… that mobile site SUUUUUUCKS.

        BTW, left a little something for you below.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Ah, the daddy …. download that game, well worth the watch.

          • MB30SD

            Nice. I left you a note last string. How are the girls. They’re almost 4 this year right?

          • Irish Sweetness

            Turned 5 in August. Churning out lots of drawings for granny, watching lots of crap on youtube … and thankfully are fast asleep during games.

          • MB30SD

            damn. Mine’s 5 next month. Couldn’t remember if they were older or younger than my little guy.

            Awesome. I turned all that shit off. A movie once in a while, animal planet, or maybe one a thems teaching cartoons while I take a dump… other than that, go play damn it. They’d play on the ipad all day if I let em.

            Doing my best Dave. The ex is pretty good, but she’s much more liberal with the ipad. I hate that zombie box. thing is a fucking digital lobotomy. I used to give them 15 minutes each a day. When they wouldn’t answer me because they were so absorbed, I cut it out completely. Done.

            Now they play, paint, sculpt, I bought them a 2000 piece arts and crafts box. They tear my fucking house UP, but it’s well worth it.

        • MB30SD

          yeah, it was… bad. hahaha

          On the field, 3rd play of the only game we got to play that year. I was the SS over the TE, he pulled across the formation, I went with him, they hiked the ball, at a full speed run, the DE gets blasted and falls right onto my left plant leg.

          ** SNAP! ***

          Sounded like you broke a 3″ branch in half and the bottom part of my leg ‘wiggled’ on the way down. Thankfully I had tights on cause the tib came out of the skin about 1.5″

          Brutal.

          • SC Dave

            Eeeesh… my condolences. The worst I had was an ACL toasting. Made a nice popping sound but didn’t look like much, Turned out I split the top of my tibia (iirc it is called the “margin”) when the ligament snapped; seems my femur slammed hard enough into the top of my tibia to cause the split.

            But I’m sure yours looked cooler. Or, uglier, as you will.

          • MB30SD

            Thanks.

            yikes! That doesn’t sound like much fun either.

            Also broke my tib-fib during a training exercise in Djibouti, didn’t break the skin but wish it did. Ended up with a compartment syndrome and permanent foot drop due to nerves that were choked up due to the pressure caused by the swelling in the affected area. It’s why I had to leave the Marine Corps.

        • MB30SD

          Exactly. Are you serious trac?!

          It was the perfect lovie move! It WAS lovie smith. It was almost poetry in motion.

  • BearDown100393

    All that is left to do in San Francisco is the post game fan brawling. Dangerous times.

  • BerwynBomber

    So pretty much a quarter of the way through the season, any thoughts on the new PAT rules? Can’t say I’m a fan. Seems like fabricated drama by the league, which I suppose is exactly what it is.

    • willbest

      I don’t really care so much as it takes the fake PAT out of the equation. I always liked to see the Punter pick it up and run for the endzone

      • BerwynBomber

        Did fans really miss the days of botched extra points? The two-point option added some years back seemed enough of a wrinkle.

    • BillW

      I guess the idea was making going for 2 more appealing. At the end of the season we can see how many times coaches went for 2 outside of needing it to tie/lead in the fourth. And outside of needing it because they missed the now more challenging pat

    • AlbertInTucson

      I don’t mind taking the “almost automatic’ feeling out of it.

  • BerwynBomber

    We could win next week too. KC’s a reeling team.

    • AlbertInTucson

      I fear that KC’s D-Line will devour the Bear’s patchwork front.

      • Johnnywad

        Dunno Al. They just tool on Aldon Smith, Justin Tuck and Khalil Mack and held their own. Seems like Gase might have a handle on scheming away from weakness

        • BerwynBomber

          Thought the lines on both sides of the ball were the true stars of the game.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Disappointed that even after a 3 week “vacation”, Ratliff couldn’t answer the bell today.

    • Johnnywad

      Chiefs, Lions, Vikings, Chargers. Next four. Bears could well be .500 by mid season with a few patsies left down the home stretch. This team is not horrible so long as Jay stays healthy.

      • Pissed Off

        Lovin that kool aid. We eeked out a w against the raiders.

        • Johnnywad

          The Raiders are better than the next four teams the Bears play. And they did it with Jay on a bum leg, three turnovers and a patchwork line. Piss and moan all you want, seems to be your thing. The Bears are better than you think.

          • MB30SD

            thiiiiiis!

          • Pissed Off

            They look spry and have some unity. Both the Vikings and chargers are probably better than the raiders. You’re just saying dumb shit now, seems to be your thing. Under what power rankings or theory are you assuming the Raiders are better than the next 4 teams we play? The only one you can say for sure is Detroit, I can argue for KC and SD and they are certainly not better than the Vikings at this point. You keep chugging that Kool aid. I prefer to drink it in moderation. I love this team as much as anyone but I’ll call out a blind homer when I see one saying irrational shit. We beat the raiders at home and suddenly we’re 1-3 and on our way. And while I love the dude don’t forget we still have Cutler who at any moment could throw the game which he almost did. If we didn’t hold them to a fg and march down and kick one to win it at the end of the game would your tune still be the same? Doubtful. Your comment comes from a couple minutes of good play at the end of a game against the raiders.

          • Johnnywad

            Yeah. Dumb shit seems to be my thing. I said they could possibly be .500 after 8 games and that they aren’t horrible when Cutler is their quarterback and that the Lions, Chargers, Chiefs and Vikings aren’t very good at football, which they aren’t. So you accuse me of being irrational. Ok.

            And yet, when Cutler loses a snap from Slauson, we got “Cutlered” according to you. And I’m the one that refuses to be objective. Guess we’ll see. Hope you can enjoy the wins as they come despite not fitting into your vision of the season that’s yet to occur.

          • Pissed Off

            LOL……still not seeing clearly I see. It’s OK dude lets just agree to disagree. You don’t like/understand me and my takes and vise versa. Why dont we just let this one lie.

          • Johnnywad

            Deal. Time will probably show that reality is somewhere between anyway

      • AlbertInTucson

        Easy there. There’s no such thing as a “Patsy” for the Bears.

        • BerwynBomber

          Yeah, I would rather not get too chesty about squeaking one out against OAK at home. Actually thought Del Rio did us favor by turtling a bit for their last FG.

          Still, a W’s a W and we are no longer among the winless.

          • Johnnywad

            Come on Bomber. Chesty? I said “Could well be .500.” And “This team’s not horrible so long as…..”. Hardly chesty.

            I am pleased with what appears to be progress though. Fox actually makes changes for the better. He actually went to a different kicking strategy today, and it worked. They cut and trade dead weight. And I feel the players are buying in.

          • BerwynBomber

            I hear ya. Heck, I was the one that posted we could beat the Chiefs next week so I am not pure pessimism.

        • Johnnywad

          Bucs?

          • AlbertInTucson

            Yeah, even the Bucs.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Yay.

  • The GP

    Charles Woodson sees ball. Goes and gets it. Martellus Bennett sees ball. Watches Woodson go and get it.

    Incorrect.

    Cutler puts that ball off his back leg despite having the space and time to step into the throw. He has another 6-7 yards to the sideline, and he doesn’t lead Bennett – at ALL. He also lets the ball loft on him, when a rocket was needed if he wanted to throw it to that point.

    So he could have either:

    1. Led Bennett more, as Bennett was expecting, allowing a clean sideline catch.
    2. Fastballed it to where he threw it.

    He did neither. That was a shit throw.

    He did it again on the 1st down to Royal, and again with Woodson bearing down. This time, again off the back foot, he puts the zip so Eddie can get it near the ground.

    Cutler must drive Gase nuts.

    • AlbertInTucson

      I have tough time laying that one on the receiver. But Cutler came right back from it and got the win and that’s all that really matters.

      • BillW

        Jeff seems to blame Bennett for not making a great play on a bad throw.

        • The GP

          That’s because Cheddar Bob couldn’t even make the bad throw that Jay did.

          Jay has so much arm, it’s difficult to criticize him for a bad throw that other QBs can’t even make.

          But we’re not comparing him to Pickle or anybody else on the Bears, we’re comparing him to other top QBs. And by that measure, that was a bad throw.

          • BillW

            By the way I missed where the Cheddar Bob thing comes from.

          • Blues lovers said the same thing about rock.

          • AlbertInTucson

            True enough. Doesn’t sway my opinion.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      i could be wrong but i think Jeff was implying sometimes our receivers don’t seem to have enough fight, meaning if it is a bad pass they need to do more to make sure the other team does not get an easy pick. I watched the Rams/Cards game and receivers on both sides of the ball were battling any DB for a bad ball not just to catch but preventing the interception.

      some passes are just that bad and receivers don’t have a chance while others a little fight would prevent a pick.

    • Pissed Off

      He drives all of us nuts….can’t imagine being his o coord

    • Irish Sweetness

      Or … we could have run the fkn ball on 3rd and 1 kick the FG … game over. Gase drove ME nuts.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Detroit could be all alone in the NFC Cellar by tomorrow night.

    Lions fans didn’t THAT comin’.

      I think the Bears have a legitimate shot of heading into the bye 3-3.

  • AlbertInTucson

    “Johnathan Wood @Johnathan_Wood1
    Today seemed like a breakthrough game for Marquess Wilson. Could be big for his confidence. Takes more supplementary role w/ Alshon back.”

    In the past, I have compared Wilson to the play, “Waiting For Godot”.

    Here’s hoping “Godot” finally showed up?

    Unfortunately who KNOWS when ( then for how long) they Alshon back.

    • BillW

      Alshon is no more than a great complementary receiver until he proves to be a real number 1.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Another grade “D” job from the Zebras today. The “Hands to the Face” call on Porter was especially outrageous as was the holding call on Leno.

    • BillW

      Don’t forget. “spiking” the ball. Seriously what was that? The booth said it was really for spinning the ball toward the ref. What next?

      • AlbertInTucson

        Oh yeah, I KNEW there was another one.

        THAT was ridiculous. That zebra should get next Sunday off to remind
        these guys need to stop finding excuses to throw flags.

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          i agree, before going into this week i pretty sure i read that this was the most accepted penalties accepted ever in the 1st 3 weeks of a season. A lot of the penalties should not be called. Its also sad to see anytime a receiver does not catch a pass they immediately throw up their hands and look at the refs. It is starting to look like soccer. Quit being whiny bitches and play the damn game.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I’m sure Londoners really enjoyed watching the 17 flags thrown against the Bill alone this morning.

          • BerwynBomber

            Lots of yellow in this NO/DAL scrum as well. At one point DAL had twelve first downs and six of them were via a flag.

            Bills/Giants was played in BUF. Jets/Dolphins was London.

          • AlbertInTucson

            My bad. I’m SURE Bills fans enjoyed that flag festival.

          • willbest

            They should throw a flag for false flagging. The penalty would be the player sits out the drive.

        • Trac

          Wait till more and more broads become refs. You wanna see ticky tack? You ain’t seen nuttin yet!

          Can you blame him?

    Does Joe Philbin survive the Dolphins Bye week?

  • AlbertInTucson

    Pretty funny. The Saints don’t bother to center the ball for theirROOKIE kicker on thatat 2nd down on that 2nd down run so he ends up have to kick, right-footed from the left hash and “DING!” off the left upright and on to O.T.

    Stupid.
