    • Irish Sweetness

      Just got through binge-watching two seasons of The Strain. Apart from all the kissing, it was’t terrible.

  • StarkyLuv

    I agree. I felt that the historically bad defense has been the hinderance that past 3 seasons. Remember, three straight 4th & longs at the end of the ’13 season kept us out of the playoffs (should’ve been 12-4 that season). Then ’14 was a waste.

    Last season, defense was better coached but was SEVERELY lacking in talent. Pace/Fox/Fangio addressed that in free-agency and the draft. Ironically, now the Bears have question marks on the O-line and the D looks to be the strength of the team…again.

    • The defense was bound spoil, but man, none of us ever thought it would stink so fast.
      It was truly the perfect shit storm of new regime, awful DC, aging/inj vets…

      We’ve flushed out the Lovie/Tresty remnants and now are much better for it.

      However, to Lovie’s credit, that D was pretty stellar for many years. Just wasn’t enough to overcome his other fatal inadequacies .

      I’m pumped about this new crew.

      I think we’re gonna be explosive on both sides of the ball.

      • StarkyLuv

        The Bears ’14 season was doomed the second it was announced that Mel Tucker was returning. He was an AWFUL coach. That final game of the ’13 season is a fireable offense on any other team.

        Finally, Bears ownership brought in truly PROFESSIONAL management and coaching. They were so used to giving first-time coaches a shot (done my entire 43 years on earth) that they finally decided to give proven winners control of the team.

  • We’re going to the playoffs, bitches!

      Last time someone suckered me with a pitch that sounded too good to be true, I ended up in the desert carrying an M-16A1. One weekend a month, two weeks a year, my ass.

      (Actually, I signed up for active duty both hitches. But we always made fun of the reservists… except when they started flying into Dover.)

      My older brother had the cushy gig. 6 years after he mustered out of Marine reserves, he re-upped for the Air Force reserve. His two weeks a year were spent in Hawaii. And, because he had gotten his nursing degree between his time in the Marines and when he went into the Air Force, he was commissioned an officer and never had to do much in the way of PT or any weapons training from then on. When he was done in the Air Force, an overzealous Army recruiter sucked him into active duty with the promise of a promotion and an even sweeter gig. If my brother wasn’t such a moron about finances and marriage (he’s on his 4th wife now), he’d pretty much be set for life, outranking most of the docs he works with.

      • MB30SD

        Sounds amazing… sign me up!!

        • Captain Obvious

          If you have an RN, the military is a pretty cushy gig. I’ve been tempted, but when I looked into it, I’d basically have to get another Master’s, and I’d have a year of biology and anatomy I’d have to take first before I could start the MSN program.

          I’m too old to start a new career, and what I do now works pretty well–though if oil prices stay in the dumper, I’ll be unemployed before long.

          • MB30SD

            Fuck that yo. If I would have gone into the military I would have gone to buds.military ain’t my thing, closest I got was college football.

            Takes a special kind of crazy to be a SEAL.

            You know how there are a lot of dumb doctors? The thing that makes someone successful in med school isn’t their smarts, it’s how determined they are, how will they are to put up with shit.

            BUD/S is the same way. Those guys aren’t necessarily the best athletes, the best soldiers, the smartest or even the toughest. They’re just the ones who can turn off the switch in their brains that says, “QUIT NOW, THIS IS NOT WORTH IT.”

            In my experience, SEALS are damned good at what they do, but they aren’t the baddest badasses on the block. That title belongs to the small, specialized teams in SpecOps that the public knows next to nothing about. The guys who took Afghanistan, the guys who took strong points in Iraq, and who are currently in Syria. Those are the guys who can hide in your garbage disposal and kill you with a piece of paper, then walk out your front door wearing your skin and talking just like you. They’re scary good, Jason-Bourne level shit. Maybe they can’t swim like a SEAL, but that’s about all the SEALs have on them.

          • Doc Nitty

            Having gone through the 6 years of grad school in mathematics, I can attest to what you’re saying. I’m smart, but I’m not any smarter than many people I see every day, and I’d wager many of you on da blog would beat me on an IQ test. The only reason I managed to get my doctorate was just refusing to give up. 10 hours a day, 6 days a week for two years working on three problems. Only two of which did I manage to solve. To say nothing of the countless hours I spent studying for brutal tests.

            Smarts? Sure, some. Mental fortitude is what got me there.

          • Speaking of math, Plato argued the human topography was tripartite.

            Intelligence – philoking
            Spirit – soldier/businessmen
            Appetites – the rabble

            The philosopher kings def need to exercise intelligence in order to be successful. This would be called wisdom

            Soldiers need to carry out or protect their wise policies. This requires above all else, determination and will power.

            The rest of the masses need only “temper” their appetites. Live a simple life, don’t drink, snort, fight and fuck too much.

            However, each person no matter what rank has a bit of the three.

            When a person exercises proper logic, determination and temperance, then he is in harmony with himself.

            When a society is constructed of such citizens, then the civilization is harmony and it’s an ideal republic, or even utopia.

            Thing is, this “harmony” is not easily achieved in an individual, and as such, society.

          • Doc Nitty

            Yeah Plato was fixated on The ideal. I think “the ideal’ is what we should all strive for. The practical side of that is that one must acknowledge that the ideal can never be achieved, so that when we fall short, or others fall short, we excercise proper compassion and patience, so we don’t become consumed with defeatism.

            I think Western society believes in striving for career and intellectual ideals, but don’t spend enough time on pursuing ideal character, humility, and compassion. What we need is the right balance of western intellectual philosophies and Eastern Taoist philosophy’s.

            Well obviously not if you specifically mention Taoism as your preferred religion. But England which coupled the Rights of Englishmen with Christianity birthed the most impressive civilization in Earth’s recorded history. So while there is no evidence it is THE path. It is clearly A path.

            I think in our current civilization, we’re already instilled with martial values. It’s like the default. These “virtues” would be recognizable in ancient greece and rome.
            It’s my observation that a modern person can’t “succeed” in this society without being Aristotelian.

            Then most are ‘softened’ up (or as Nietzsche would contend “feminized”) by Christianity (Americans by most measures are charitable, etc).

            If you want to get softened up without the theology, eastern philosophies like Buddhism, Taoism and Hinduism can more or less fulfill the same function.

            Most ppl need some sorta metaphysical belief in order to cope with all the death and suffering.

            Just as long as that belief doesn’t make one a hypocritical tyrannical asshole, no sweat off my balls.

    Boys, so after last night, I think I’ve settled on my favorite body type.

    • Swing Tackle of Destiny

      do show

      • MB30SD

        so i used to like the thin, tiny ass, huge boobs (usually fake because skinny and huge boobs isn’t something mother nature can do… despite her grandeur).

        I’ve also dated (casually) on and off this girl who’s an aerobics instructor. She has abs, and veins in her abs… like, much better abs than me. She’s got fakies, but they’re small Cs (yes, she always tells me she wishes she’d have gone bigger). She’s got like 6% bodyfat and a great ass and legs and errathing (she’s 37 and has 3 kids btw!!)

        Aaaaanyway, so the last couple days I’ve been chatting with this cute Afrikaans girl after matching on tinder (not grinder HBP/yonny, TINDER). So I goes over to her place last night (turns out she lives like 400 yards from my uncles house!), and one thing leads to another and we’re in bed naked having our way with each other. She is voluptuous. Like big DDs with great nipples that get hard and dark. yum. anyway, she has thin legs a BIG bubble butt, not at all fat (yet… she’s 27) or dimpley, but just bubble. And she has a tummy… definitely a little bit of a gut and some love handles. MUCH more than I’m used to, but again, she’s not fat, she’s just bigger (also about 5’7″).

        Now, I have found that this formula stoked my evolutionary fire, but only in the last year. Girls with her body type just do something to me and I find them SUPER sexual and the sex was really good. She even just trimmer her bush, not shaved it… it was like a low cut 70s disco bush. Kinda loved it.

        Anyway, bigger girls with huge boobs and a little cushin fo tha pushin are what does it for me I guess. Thing is, they’re REALLY hard to find, usually if they’re like that, they’re fat. I’ve only found 4 over the last 3 years.

        No pics, was too busy. We’re supposed to go on a real date thursday… maybe then (but not for you scalawags)

      Climbers dying on Everest. A pet peeve.

      “You knew the job was dangerous when you took it”. -Henry Cabot Henhouse III, AKA, Super Chicken.

      Everest, like MOST of Mother Nature, can kill you by accident with a shrug.

      Climbing Everest?

      OK.

      Here’s a sudden zero visibility storm or a nice avalanche for you or, in this case, a lethal case of high altitude sickness.

      Whoops. You’re dead.

      More corpses decorating the way to the summit.

      Corpses which may or may NOT ever be brought down because rescue climbers can, and have, die/died while attempting such.

      Rich, bored, assholes looking for a thrill.

      Better and cheaper to just go play in traffic on Broadway, I-94 at rush hour or dodge your way across a NASCAR track.

      You’ll be just as DEAD, but nobody will have to risk THEIR lives trying to recover your bodies.

      My sympathy goes to loved ones left behind who have to deal with the totally unnecessary tragedy and grief.

      • CanadaBear

        I think that might be a tad harsh but I get it. Up here there has been a lot of talk about mountain climbers, ice climbers, back country skiers, etc, needing insurance to pay for the search/rescue/recovery. I’m totally on board with that. I have no issue with people doing this stuff. I totally understand trying to test/push yourself and don’t think it’s out of boredom. I also don’t want to pay for their rescue.

      Universal Sports isn’t carrying much bike racing this year. No Giro for me. FUCK! I’ve been watching the Tour of California. Peter Sagan is always fun to watch. I’ve been following the Giro. I’m pulling for Nibs. He’s an asshole but he’s always willing to animate a race to get the win.

  • George Hotchkiss

    Old Fart here, My gut reaction after a half century of watching the Bears prepare for, and then play their seasons, is this season looks a little better than Meh…? Don’t take that as a negative, considering two years ago, that is about 5 standard deviations of improvement. My bias is defense, defense, defense, but not only defense.. did I mention defense. Let me explain, if you look at the ’85 Bears, most folks remember the defense, and rightfully so, It was the base the team was built on. The offense fed off the defense, true symbiosis. By the end of the season, the offense was also pretty dangerous. It was opportunistic, not a steamroller, but it could score points, especially with the great field position it often received. I see some of those roots here.

    The defense is far from a finished product, it lacks speed and depth everywhere (except linebacker depth, that looks solid), there is no “Star” on the defense, there is no component to put the field out of balance. The 85 Bears had three defensive stars, the line, the linebackers, and the 46. The 2016 Bears, at this point have no stars. It looks like it could be a solid backstop, but not dynamic (note the lack of turnovers last year). It would work if the offense was much better than average, but our offense appears to be in a state of development, like a developing cocoon, it doesn’t look like it is ready to open just yet.Serious questions exist at running back (is anybody good enough), wide receiver (is White healed and can he play, can Jeffries stay on the field, will there be any tight ends), and the line (???). In addition, the new offensive coordinator, is completely unproven. I have high degree of confidence, in Cutler and Long, after that I really don’t know.

    So, that is what my ” a little better than Meh” opinion is based on. It looks like next year could be a good year.

    • Doc Nitty

      Solid first post for an old fart. Welcome to the Dark Side. What are your thoughts on Lori, The Fed, and titties?

    • madscout12

      When a poster types “Jeffries”…I don’t know anymore if it is supposed to be ironic or if people still don’t know that fucker’s name. Maybe if he could be on the field more, people would spell his damn name correctly. Alshon “Jeffries” Jeffery.

      • Captain Obvious

        There are only a few things that make me irrationally lose it these days.

      • George Hotchkiss

        I’m pretty sure I have never replied to someone with the words “Huge” & “Penis” in their name before, anyway your point is noted. The Bear linebacker looks like the obvious strength of the defense at this point. My gut tells me they could be a solid, competent linebacking core. Thanks for the comment. Have a great day.

    • That Guy

      This post is the reason Pace has let so many players go. If we still had Forte and sold the farm for Wilkerson, the post would not change one bit. So Pace is allowing the young guys to step up and be stars. Fuller, Amos, etc. all have been given clear starting roles. If they fail, they can blame nobody but themselves.

      I feel a bit more excited about the D only because the middle is starting to look really solid. If Ego and Goldman both step up their games. If Unrein and Bullard contribute like they should. If Freeman and Trevathan play up to expectations?

      A lot of ifs there, but that could be a very strong foundation to build a defense from. That gives the edge guys a lot more to work with. It gives the corners a lot more safety help. It gives all the DBs a break from tackling 225 pound running backs. Its how the Panthers built their Superbowl unit.

      On D, that’s what gets me excited.

      • George Hotchkiss

        Me too. Have a great day.

    So, I know it is the four letter network, and I know that it is a fantasy football discussion. But holy shit…these numbers are not good:

    http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=15628569

    2.9 YPC against base Defense
    1.1 YAC
    Caught 54% of Targets

    All of which, for Langford, are the worst of all RB last year.

    The first two may be BS stats…teams play in the Nickel a lot now and YAC(ontact) is pretty situational for him. But those drops have to go.

    Good thing we have a RB by committee. Here’s to hoping the committee is good.

    • willbest

      They are why the Bears felt it more important to give Langford competition than Leno. And while most around here have their Bear goggles on, we all seem to be of the opinion he passed the eye test even if he needs to spend time with the jugs machine. After all Carey didn’t pass the eye test last year and looked like a god damn ninja shooting the hole this year.

      • And Bears made a strong pitch for CJ Anderson.

        Obviously, POX was trying to get that extra back to compete.

        This shouldn’t alarm fans. In fact, it should do quite the opposite. It should reassure them that they value the running game, and that they’re going to try to bolster it up, or at the very least insure it.

        Agree that to me and many others Langford passed the eye-test. Or, that is to say, he earned the chance to be the guy, but I wouldn’t sleep on the rook HB. I think he’ll become a fan fav very quickly and push Langford.

        • SC Dave

          But they throw away Forte.

        • CanadaBear

          I hope Howard is the real deal. Langford had some great flashes last year and some not so flashy plays. Love his speed. Hope he takes the next step this year. Pretty sure the offense in the first part of the season will have some genuine growing pains.

          • SC Dave

            Yes… Jeffery and White will have to find each other too.

          • CanadaBear

            I think that will be the least of the O’s problems. Cutler is good with Alshon and I read where White and Cutler have been doing a lot of work together. Not to mention Royal in the slot should keep them guessing. The running game and lack of TE options past Miller are my biggest concerns. Unless the injuries start to pile up at one position again.

    Gotta ask da Blog the following…

    The wife is pregnant. We’re going the cloth diaper route. We’ve got a friend who’s a Packer fan. Is a an appropriate dis to ask for Packer cloth diapers? My reasoning for yes is that my boy is going to piss and shit on that Packer logo, treating it the way it deserves to be treated. But then my boy may have pictures of him wearing Packer gear leading to confusing conversations.

        All the trash the US will generate for the next 250 years wouldn’t fill Rhode Island. The problem with trash has always been a transportation issue.

        • Captain Obvious

          All the people in the world can fit on the island of Manhattan.

          See, I can make a meaningless comparison about how much stuff will fit in a given area, too.

          Rhode Island is 1200 square miles. Even if your numbers are right, 1200 square miles (buried how deep?) is a lot of trash. And you have to line the landfill, vent it, prevent groundwater contamination, etc.

          The problem with trash has not “always been a transportation issue.” It’s been properly creating landfills, wasting the resources you’re burying in the landfill, and once the landfill is filled, repurposing the landfill land and finding a new place to bury the trash. If you create less trash, you need to do less of all the above (including transport). Cloth diapers aren’t an environmental slam-dunk–you use lots of energy making them and washing them, but at least the human waste goes into the water treatment system, rather than being buried and taking up landfill space.

          I don’t preach about cloth diapers. I liked the convenience of disposables, and like I said, cloth is not an environmental slam-dunk. Cloth diapers do reduce the amount of material ending up decomposing over decades in landfills. So arguing that our production and disposal of solid waste isn’t a problem (except for the transportation of it) is just plain ridiculous.

          All the best.

      If YOU are going to shit on a logo, make it a Packer logo. But babies are cute enough to shit in Bear diapers.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Been a LONG time since we needed them but we did do cloth diapers,

      We thought they were better for the kid. Saw some nasty diaper rashes on “Disposables only” babies back then though I believe the disposables these days are much improved since the mid 1980s and our grandkid is 100% in disposables. Pampers.

      Had a diaper service for a while but they couldn’t keep up our kid’s output so we bought & laundered them ourselves.

      Yeah, I did my share of rinsing deposits out in the toidy bowl before putting them in the washer.

      Cloth was only at home.

      Any outings were still disposables NONE of which were ever tossed under the car in a parking lot after a changing, BTW.

      Bonus: Cloth diapers make great dust & cleaning cloths when they’re diaper days are over.

      We used the around the house for YEARS.

      FYI: REAL men change diapers.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Oh, and congratulations!

        No “Participation Trophies” please…

    • Captain Obvious

      We used the same cloth diapers for my son that we used for my daughter first. So my son wore a lot of pink diapers. No one gave a shit, even at day care–which was at a church with some conservative people who wouldn’t say NTTAWWT (i.e, we thought we might catch some grief from uptight Christians who would think that a pink diaper on a boy would make him gay, and that’s evil).

      So yeah, package any “embarassing” pictures as your kid taking a piss on the Packers logo.

      My advice on the diapering itself is to stick with the expensive Bum Genius. You pay for what you get. Especially early on, you’ll still want to use disposables at night–they hold more urine and keep it away from the kid’s skin, making for fewer diaper changes and screaming awake babies. Plus, even the best cloth diapers don’t hug the legs as tightly as disposables can, so your kid can end up leaking–especially girls.

      You’ll save money over the long haul with cloth, but you pay for that in labor, doing a lot of washing and folding and stuffing the inserts into the diapers. But especially while your kid is nursing, you’ll enjoy the cloth: your kid craps a tiny smear into a diaper you just put on him 2 minutes before, if it’s a cloth diaper you just shrug and say, “We’ll be doing wash soon,” and you change him. If it’s a disposable diaper, you curse at your kid costing you 25 cents just because he didn’t squeeze that 1/4 teaspoon of shit out 3 minutes earlier. In other words, you’ll waste a lot of disposables, and that can grind on you if money’s an issue or if you feel weird about your baby’s shitty diapers being fossilized in a landfill.

      Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to transition from diaper talk to something more manly, like Charlotte McKinney’s rack. It’s splendid, ain’t it?

    A friend of mine from work had an extra ticket so I got to go see Bill Burr last night. Funny fucking dude. He definitely errs on the side of pro-man/misogynist, which definitely hit the spot for me right now. I can’t believe he has flown under my radar all this time. Hilarious show. Though I have to say, never having gone to a stand up comedy live before, I think I would rather watch it on t.v. than pay $75 plus gas plus parking plus $10 beers.

    • CanadaBear

      He is hilarious. I’ve gone to comedy clubs where the headliners were less well known but the cover reflected it. Always had a great time. Other than the MC/opening act, all the rest of the performers were always funny.

      • willbest

        The problem with the low cover is its a crap shoot. You almost have to learn how to heckle just to get your money’s worth out of it.

    Math whiz people, I am pissed at my kid’s school. Given this statement:

    “Estimate the the square root to the nearest (a) integer and (b) tenth”

    What is negative sqrt of 220? How would you write answer (a) and (b)?

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      a. -15
      b. -14.8

    • Doc Nitty

      (a) -15
      (b) -14.8

      • Swing Tackle of Destiny

        Wrong. According to the school. They were looking for:

        (a) -14
        (b) 8

        • Doc Nitty

          WTF?

          • Swing Tackle of Destiny

            there’s no way to read that sentence that way, right?

          • Doc Nitty

            No. Not in any language. Idiots need to stop writing questions period.

          • Doc Nitty

            I guess I can see how they got (a). It’s wrong but I can see it (you’re taught to round up when the next digit is 5 or more, well, up from -14.8 would be -14).

            How they came by 8 is a complete mystery.

            Ah, I see it now. Some idiot saw -sqrt(220)=-14.83. They read (tenths) and grabbed hold of the 8 in the tenths spot.

            A case against teachers unions.

          • Huge Bear’s Penis

            true for (a) but they did not specify the rounding rules to utilize. i run into this a lot in programming accounting software some companies want rounding toward 0 others want away from 0 when dealing with negatives. as for (b) I am assuming they wanted to just know the value in the tenths position but again not clearly written.

          • Captain Obvious

            You’re gonna blame the union for curriculum?

            Overall, I think Common Core works. Except the math stuff. It’s ridiculous. They’re trying to teach ten different ways to arrive at the same answer, when kids tend to find a single method and stick with it.

            Part of the problem is that math education has been de-emphasized for years, and by and large, we are a nation whose young people suck at math. So now they’re trying to fix that with the current schoolkids. I say just go back to the way the children of the 70s and 80s were taught, before everyone had calculators.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Is it an accident though? Or do they just want a nation of people who can’t analyse how they’re being fucked over on a daily basis? Produce, consume, pay taxes, but don’t think.

          • Doc Nitty

            Mostly tongue in cheek, but no, I am blaming the union for allowing idiots to keep their jobs.

            And yes, 99% of the problem, I’m convinced is calculators. When students are not forced to do mental arithmetic, they do not have have the chance to develop number sense. You cannot excel in math if you don’t have basic number sense. adding, multiplying, etc.. are the fundamentals of mathematics. Not forcing a student to do those in their head, or at least on paper, is akin to trying to coach a team of young basketball players without dribbling drills, layup drills, etc… Without a proper attention to fundamentals, the level of play diminishes.

            I see this kind of nonsense in first grade when I check my kids homework.
            For example, “which shape has 4 equal sides”. The answer is of course a Rhombus. But it is a square and rectangle worksheet and they don’t even discuss angles so the answer they want is square even though its wrong.

            This “close enough we will fix it later” mentality infuriates me but then the assignment got worse.

            They have a guy made out of squares and rectangles. And they ask how many squares and how many rectangles.

            He was made out of 15 rectangles (including all the squares) but only 10 rectangles that weren’t squares. Of course 10 wasn’t the right answer either. See his body was made up of 3 adjacent rectangles all colored the same color. Which is 6 rectangles but apparently they forgot the 2, 2-block rectangles.

            You know the saying those that can’t do, teach. I am convinced the follow up is those that can’t teach, write workbooks.

        • willbest

          I don’t know if he is going to have any playing time, but they aren’t going to have fewer than 3 running backs on 53, might even have 4 if they opt not to go with a FB again. So while Howard and Langford are almost certain locks, that #3 spot is wide open. And he is again 1 injury away to a decent amount of touches.

          • But traditionally that 3rd HB plays specials.

            By most accounts, Carey doesn’t.

            Wolf played specials too, if I remember.

          • CanadaBear

            Carey played ST’s last year. Even made a couple of plays.

          • Carey was active for every game last year after Forte got hurt, though he rarely got carries once Forte was back.

            He earned his keep on ST, where he really surprised me. had some key blocks on big Deonte Thompson returns late in the year.

            ST will likely be his ticket to the roster this year if he’s going to stick.

          • Yeah, for some reason, I don’t remember him doing so, but u guys are right.

            He wasn’t a gunner or returner, so maybe that’s why I didn’t remember.

          • EnderWiggin

            I think he made a couple of tackles too.

    It was talked about on this blog in one of the ramblings a while back how the boys producing Star Trek Axanar got to punt the ball on Paramount by forcing them to clarify what specific copyrights were being infringed. Well JJ Abrams and later backed up by Paramount announced that CBS was dropping the lawsuit against the Axanar project.

    It seems that they have decided suing one of the most loyal fan bases in existence probably wasn’t the best approach. It appears that CBS/Paramount is now in discussions to set up a bunch of guidelines regarding these types of productions. Good for them, and I am sure it has nothing to do that they are releasing a new Star Trek series only on their CBS streaming services that they charge $7 per month for in about 6 months.

    • Irish Sweetness

      They’d be silly to sue, nobody watches fan made crap.

      The second trailer for Star Trek Beyond is the bomb. Didn’t look good after the first one.

        Dude raised nearly $700,000 to produce it and has some b-list star trek actors slated to be in it. If I recall, Star Trek Enterprise was produced around 1.1 million an episode. Given the 10 years advancement in CGI, and operating outside the bounds of the Hollywood guilds/unions I would imagine you could get yourself a solid 70-90 minutes movie. Particularly with your FX guys probably being fans willing to do it for just to have bragging rights of doing it.

    Some of you have probably seent it already, but this lady has me cracking up by the end of this video.

    This first part is lame, and some of you guys won’t think it’s funny at all but something about this lady and that mask had me literally in tears.
