DBB Weekend Show – Week 14

| December 8th, 2016

On the Weekend Show:

  • Jeff discussed the importance for this coaching regime to put together a good division record down the stretch.
  • Dave Birkett on all things Lions, including whether this is a mediocre team winning a bad division or a good team ready to compete for a trip to the Super Bowl. (He also points out their specials as Detroit’s secret weapon.)
  • Ged Hourigan, Irish degenerate, tells a fake story as he steps in for the Reverend on the sermon.
  • The pick? Objective this could easily be a Lions blowout victory but two things stand in the way of that: a surging Bears defense and #barkleytime.
  • Music from Joni Mitchell and John Cale!

    Play tough, bang some heads.

    That is all.

    • MB30SD

      fall…. juuuuuuuuuuuust short?

      • SC Dave

        Jes. Then beat the living, and dead, shit out of the Packers.

        We already gave the Packers one game on the standings on the Lions.

        Fuck the Lions, butt fuck the Packers more.

        • MB30SD

          indeed. And I see what you did there.

        I’m hoping to avoid anything resembling a symbolic Lovie victory that includes 1 or 2 future hof career ending injuries as well.

        • MB30SD

          bingo!

          so lovie… MIKE!!!!

  • AlbertInTucson

    So, the Cowboys only got Dak Prescott because The Raiders moved up and took Conor Cook

  • Huge Bears Penis

    I really like Ged Hourigan, Irish degenerate.

    • CanadaBear

      Gotta give Jeff credit. You know that story is true and Jeff is OK with it making him look bad. Gotta love the Irish! Esp since my dad’s side is 100%.

  • MB30SD

    flash back to my childhood: http://uncrate.com/stuff/1984-honda-atc-70-three-wheeler/

    Kinda want one… even thought they were basically the diametric opposite of safe.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      damn thing was almost indestructible. I am surprised I did not break any bones on that thing when I was younger, especially since never wore a helmet.

      • MB30SD

        yeesh, broken bones were the least of the dangers. Talk about head trauma incarnate.

        • Huge Bears Penis

          pretty sure I got a couple concussions because of it but nothing serious. I am pretty sure my old honda is still sitting in a shed at my parents, bet I could get it running again in a weekend.

          • MB30SD

            Doooo eeeeettt

  • AlbertInTucson

    Man. Derek Johnson, nobody near him and WHAM! Done.

  • willbest

    That was bs they were both pushing

  • willbest

    Back to back int strip sack. When did we trade cutler to the chiefs?

    • Huge Bears Penis

      we didn’t, so don’t worry we will be having strip sacks for years to come.

      • willbest

        Whew. I was worried for a minute

        • Huge Bears Penis

          watching KC STs makes me long for years past

          • MB30SD

            Or their D. Beastly

          • willbest

            I don’t know why Toub isn’t a HC. He has been the best ST coordinator for a decade

          • MB30SD

            Because he’s been the best st coordinator for a decade. How does that give him the chops to be an hc?!?

            Like saying I’m great at playing tennis, I should be a pro racquetball player.

            …or yeah, something like that.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            its’ always been reported that ST coaches make great HC.

          • willbest

            Wasn’t John Harbaugh an ST?

          • Huge Bears Penis

            yep

          • MB30SD

            Nice so one makes the rule!

            Yay science!

          • Huge Bears Penis

            also Belichick, Vermeil, Cowher, Ditka and Levy

          • MB30SD

            They were all ONLY st coaches who jumped right to hc?

            Of the were at one point in the progression?

            Biiig diff

          • willbest

            But your out of hand dismissiveness seems nonsensical. Plenty of great DC and OC that can’t cut it as HC. Philips, gym shorts, Daniels, Bowles just to name some current ones

          • MB30SD

            I love toub man, and we’ve all asked why over the years. Has to be a reason right… And maybe that’s because toub doesn’t want to… Which make this all moot anyway

          • willbest

            I think the bears were the only ones to interview him for the position

          • MB30SD

            Yeah, kinda my point. Why??

            And like I said above, would be super interesting to see how it would turn out… And I’d def be rooting for him

          • CanadaBear

            Pretty sure he would like to sit in the big chair. I think guys like Toub and Fangio have an uphill battle to become HC’s. Both are rough around the edges and there’s a good chance they will tell you the truth if you ask. Most owners are scared to death to hand over the keys to the car to someone like that.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            some progression but Vermeil and Levy were strictly STers, Cowher was STer and then spent 1 year as DC before HC. Belichick was a jack of all trades in coaching

          • MB30SD

            Hmmmm… Not a ton of data points and things have changed so much since the days of vermeil and levy.

            Anyway, I’d root for the guy and I’d be interesting to see

          • Huge Bears Penis

            it would make sense that a ST coach make a good hire, mainly because they don’t have any proclivities towards either side of the ball, they tend to get the most out of the back half of the lineups since those are the players they deal with. Also have to work with both offensive and defensive players.

          • MB30SD

            Hmmmm…

            Certainly good points. Would have to see it to Belize it

          • Huge Bears Penis

            John Harbaugh.

          • MB30SD

            Show me

          • Huge Bears Penis

            show you what? you a want a picture of him?

          • SC Dave

            Ditka… meh.

          • willbest

            I didn’t say he would be a good HC, but its silly nobody has tried it. By your logic OC and DC should never get shots

          • MB30SD

            Can anyone name another besides John harbaugh, who comes from football royalty

          • DaMurph

            John Harbaugh was a ST coach before he go the Ravens gig.

  • willbest

    Was that designed or was the snap f’d up?

    • Huge Bears Penis

      snap f’d up

  • MB30SD

    Dude! Raiders punter looks like a young Wesley snipes!!

  • MB30SD

    Raiders better pull their heads out of their ass. They’re doing a fabulous job pissing this game away in the 2nd half.

    • willbest

      Defense was all: “Hey we are gonna give you this game”
      and the O was all: “Nah we are good being behind”

      • MB30SD

        Totally.

        Of course Carr does have a broken finger on his throwing hand… And it’s very very obvious. That cold must be a bitch for him

    • SC Dave

      the Chiefs dont suck

      • MB30SD

        No, but if Carr’s finger was right they would have gotten destroyed in the second half. Did you see most of his… Um…. “Throws”… tonight. Yeesh

  • Huge Bears Penis

    I really need to get some more points out of Cooper and Ware if I am going to advance in playoffs.

    • Johnnywad

      Its all good. Dungeons and Dragons season is just around the corner. 😐

      • MB30SD

        Yaaaaaay!

  • MB30SD

    Collinsworth incredulous that Carr is “so off” tonight.

    He has a BROKEN FUCKING PINKY on his THROWING HAND in 22 degree weather you fucking buffoon!!!

    • Huge Bears Penis

      it was only dislocated, tis but a flesh wound, Carr is a pussy.

      • MB30SD

        I thought broken… Ok, well, still

        • Huge Bears Penis

          he should be a real football player and just amputated it.

          • MB30SD

            Ronnie Lott style

  • MB30SD

    Why do I find myself rooting for the raiders. I feel dirty now

    • SC Dave

      You should, slut (NTTAWWT). Go Chiefs!

  • MB30SD

    Is it just me or does Derek Carr look like he always has eyeliner on

    • SC Dave

      Its Carr

    • Irish Sweetness

      Guy-liner. It’s a thing.

    • BearDown100393

      I thought the same thing.

    • CanadaBear

      A guy that used to run the bar in the small mining town also played guitar in a band that played there a lot (I wonder how they got the gig?), always wore eye liner. He was an OK guy and a super talented guitarist, married with a couple of kids. I never had the nerve to ask what was up with the eye liner. Pretty sure I was afraid of the answer!

  • SC Dave

    Gawd, I SURE hope so the shit about the QB becoming less valued in favor of the, like, RUNNING GAME, happens. Because we have Jordan Howard.

    Edit: That, and Ged Hourigan knows all there is to know about Jefe!!

  • Irish Sweetness

    Only 139 days left until the draft.

    • MB30SD

      sigh

      • Irish Sweetness

        We could count the days to the superbowl, ahem, but the draft will definitely happen with us in it.

        • MB30SD

          I meant, sigh… we’re talking about the draft in early December again

  • BillW

    I just read Jeff’s tweet about Barkley. I had no idea he was Polish. Not sure what that has to do with being a good QB, though I admit Ron Jaworski was above average.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Don’t think he was Bill. 53% completions and a 72 rating. He was very average.

  • CanadaBear

    Not sure what Jeff is getting at when he says “If the Bears can make the Loins O one-dimensional”. The Loins have been one-dimensional all season. They have no running game.

  • CanadaBear

    I loved that punt return last night. Really miss Toub! Really miss having a talented roster with some studs on ST’s. Oh well.

    • DaCoaches Mustache

      Tyreek Hill is fucking ridiculous. He reminds me of a certain other Dave Toub punt returner. Except he appears to know what he’s doing on offense. Kinda scary.

      • MB30SD

        maybe he has an IQ about that of a common turnip.

  • MB30SD

    “DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    There was talk this summer about whether Fuller would be ready for opener. What the hell is wrong in that knee?”

    cut bait.

    • CanadaBear

      I’m not sure the knee is still the problem. That doesn’t bode well for Fuller. Although, he’s about the only one back there that can intercept a pass.

    • Big Mike

      Derek Rose syndrome. Made of cotton candy. Or if you are conspiracy minded…top brass doesn’t want to risk winning.

    • Sactowns#1

      I’m always amazed when guys come back and play within 12 months of surgery etc. I have a dead guys ACL and I didn’t ski on that thing for 2 years! I was A) escared B) it still wasn’t that strong after a year. Knees, like love, take time.

      • MB30SD

        Indeed.

        you had a knee!!!!

  • willbest
  • CanadaBear

    Gotta laugh at this. The MMQB on SI’s site has 4 stories being featured. All 4 are about the Cheese. Fuck Me!

      • MB30SD

        guy is such a massive dildo

  • BearDown100393

    “What the hell is wrong in that knee?”

    Answer – He has a knee. It happened when the knee did something. A knee takes knee time to heal. Kyle has done everything we’ve asked to take care of the knee. When Fuller no longer has a knee and can use his knee without it feeling like a knee, he will be ready for the playoffs. Until then the team does not want to risk another knee with the knee.

  • BerwynBomber

    Hoping Barkley does well. Fear is he gets picked off a few times in his first true test/roadie. If he has a half-solid game and keeps his TOs below two it will be impressive.

    • SC Dave

      So long as it does not ruin his confidence and he learns from it, I’m okay. It will happen *sometime* for sure.

  • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd HOFerPick#6(Butch)

    Having fun reading pre-draft scouting reports of #barkleytime. Only ? people have is arm strength. Accuracy. Poise. Polish. Great leader. – Jeff

    His frame and bonehead decision making were also in question. And for some being a USC QB is a thing.

    I’m still a bit tepid on him since the rule of thumb is that the NFL needs about 4 games of real game tape to adapt.

    So, that’s just enough games for Barkley to impress, then for the Bears to throw 100M at him, and he flames out next season a la Oz !

    (just kidding…kinda?)

    #bearsQB

    • willbest

      He ends his season with 3 teams in that state. The Packers having actual game experience against him for a half.

    • SC Dave

      #barkley?

    • Irish Sweetness

      Yeah, it only took a few games to see Hoyer’s limitations, namely an unwillingness to go downtown and a limited arsenal of throws. We’ve only seen Barkley against two bad pass defenses in a row. We scored more points against Minny with Cutty than Elliott, Bryant, Witten and Prescott could manage. Looks like Ziggy has a bad ankle, so he might get another pass on Sunday.

      There’s always Shaw if Barkley shows cracks, and Fales, and the draft. It’s all good.

      • MB30SD

        FALES!!! BRING BACK FALES!!!

      • BerwynBomber

        And it only took Cutty another game (against TB) to remind us who he is.

  • BearDown100393

    Fox just issued the word “spoiler”?

      • CanadaBear

        I kinda doubt it. I spent last winter in Mesa and believe me, the trailer park was filled with senior bigots. And these seniors aren’t poor by any stretch of the imagination.

      • SC Dave

        Most likely, by at least a factor of ten, people paid by Soros to whip up Trump hatred.

        • MB30SD

          Hahah, right

  • CanadaBear

    I have no idea other than most of the racists learn that shit at home. I try to keep an open mind when I meet people but it usually doesn’t take long to figure out if they are racist or not. Lots of talk about “those people”.

    I was having a Halloween party and a couple that I’d been friends with for years were very concerned that my Mexican friend was upstairs in my house unsupervised. They were really worried. After I explained to them that he’s my best friend and I would trust him with my life, they just looked puzzled and walked away. SHEESH!

    • willbest

      They say you have to teach hate, but that is a lie. People are universally distrustful of others they don’t identify with. Even the “enlightened” liberals such as yourself have no problem slandering entire groups of people for nothing more than where they live.

      Anyway, such letters are not one directional and they are fired at anybody that stands out even for saintly reasons. Marshall took a knee during a national anthem and the media broadcasted it far and wide. Of course there are going to be several hundred people with 15 minutes, and a low enough inhibition to let him have it. I bet Jeffery got a few for his PEDs suspension from shall we say less composed fantasy football players,

      Electors are getting death threats because they are committed to voting for the winner of the popular vote in their state. None of its right, but when you have 320 million people that gives you 8 million certified crazies and another 40 million that have crazy proclivities.

      • SC Dave

        Presumably, electors that are voting for Trump.

      • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd HOFerPick#6(Butch)

        I think hate is mostly learned, though not necessarily “inherited.”
        It’s darwinian to a certain extent. If a ppl treat u like shit, you learn to dislike those ppl. Makes sense in the survival dept (turn the other cheek is counter nature).

        • Huge Bears Penis

          exactly – it is nature to have a certain amount of hesitation or skepticism when meeting new people especially if they do not look like you, however if that first experience is a good then your impressions are formed in a positive light.

          However all kinds of factors can play into those first impressions. With young people they often get cues, verbal and nonverbal, from their parents and elders, on how to feel and react. Even if the experience is a positive one that impression is altered by the people we have trust in.

          This goes for every encounter you have with anything. For instance, for the longest time I was hated/feared dogs. I never had a bad experience with a dog, yet I had fear and hatred. It wasn’t till I learned that my Mom had been attacked by several dogs that I realized where my fear/hatred came from. It was her fear/hatred that was instilled into me.

          • Irish Sweetness

            It’s totally learned though. Look at children of optimistic, good-hearted cheery people. They reach out to strangers and break the ice, assuming everyone is happy and cheery like them. That’s sweet. It’s like Bill Hicks said, you can choose to have eyes of fear, or eyes of love. Kids who grow up with parents who are bigoted and hateful, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

            And remember, Muslims are absolutely slated on this board and there is plenty of bigotry here too. I’ve seen it’s totally acceptable to do so.

      • Irish Sweetness

        It’s in the DNA. Fear other tribes. They’ll take your food, kill you, and rape your women. CAn’t really blame people for that – they have to be re-programmed. They have to realize and understand it’s just base code that needs to be rewritten.

    • MB30SD

      Hmmmm… Bigote

      It’s a funny play on words. Before in Spanish is mustache

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd HOFerPick#6(Butch)

      Happens a lot, every which way.

      My step bro who a while ago was made fun of cuz he had long hair and cowboy boots.

      He wasn’t even a cowboy – but a rock-n-roll musician, but some of the gangsters took umbrage to his ‘shitkickers’. But now he considers himself an angeleno and has an chinese chick and mexican best bud, and doesn’t really feel the racism as much, though he still admits he feels uncomfortable in elevator of black ppl.

      When I asked why, he just said, “it’s just tension. It’s there.”

      Would like to believe the younger generation isn’t as racist, but who knows?

      It’s not just gonna go away in 50 yrs.

  • willbest

    I would just like to thank Trump for nominating a Labor Secretary that has caused all the progs to dig up every sexy ad his company has ever run and collect them to express outrage over misogyny and bring my attention to them.

    I don’t think I have ever eaten in a Carl’s Jr. and its been well over a decade since I stepped foot in a Hardees, but I clearly am not doing my part to support this kind of artistic endeavor.

          I wasn’t impressed the twice I’ve tried. I prefer mcds. At least I know what I’m getting and their fries are seriously bad ass.

          The mcrib is also pretty insane.

          For the best straight fast food hamburger though… The king. Hands down

            nope you are wrong. McDs sucks, Carl’s Jr. is the greatest of all time. Future HOFer!

            Dude, the McRib is processed poo! It’s disgusting!

            Back in Ireland I would only order the Quarter pounder with no cheese. They make them with cheese and stack them up. Order no cheese and you get a freshly-made burger. Gherkins, ketchup, that’s it. I miss that shit. Don’t sell them in Asia.

            It totally is… Mouthwatering delicious extruded processed pink poo goo. Mmmmmmm

            I’ve always wondered, are gherkins different things, or the same thing as pickles just what the rest of the world calls them.

      I had a Carls Jr. last year. It was very good.
