Match-Up That Matters: Bears at Bucs

| November 10th, 2016

screen-shot-2016-11-09-at-11-20-01-am

The Bears travel to Tampa for a match-up of two pretty evenly-matched teams. What will tell the tale?

Bears Rushing Attack

vs.

Tampa’s Poor Rush Defense

Three thoughts:

  • The Bears ran the ball with toughness and determination against a terrific Vikings defense with backup guards. From all reports, Josh Sitton and Kyle Long will return to the lineup Sunday. Long and Sitton aren’t just their two best offensive linemen. They are two of the best players on the team and leaders on the field. Their return should be worth 25+ additional yards.
  • Bucs are allowing more than 117 yards per game on the ground at 4.1 yards per carry. If Bears stay committed to the run,  and we know they will, they should have tremendous success on the ground.
  • Only one back in the league has a better yards per carry than Jordan Howard. (That would be the revelation that is Jay Ajayi in Miami. Reason #31 you don’t break the bank for CJ Anderson.) Howard isn’t going to beat a healthy Ezekiel Elliot for Rookie of the Year but I expect him to make a formidable argument over the second half of the season. That starts in Tampa.

If the Bears run it well, they win. I think they will…and do.

      I don’t know the Raiders had problems with the Bucs, then again they committed 25 penalties or something.

      • SC Dave

        Isnt that about average for them?

        • willbest

          It in fact beat a long standing league record held by the Bears for most penalties in a single game.

  • 505Bears

    Just have to double up on Evans. Without him, they are done.

  • Irish Sweetness

    1. Spy Floyd on Winston (who is 9-15).

    2. Run the ball.

    3. Move to next week.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      screw spying on Winston, knock him on his butt. pressure the hell out of him.

      • F–K Weed Superman (GP)

        he’s thinking of that legendary Urlacher game where he spied Vick.

        • Huge Bears Penis

          Vick was a real threat to run, Winston does not run much.

          • Irish Sweetness

            It’ll be all they have. They have no running backs left. Total bums.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            Doug Martin was practicing this week.

        • Johnnywad

          Vick wanted no part of Urlacher or the cold that game. He only wanted his parka.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Floyd would be perfect on Winston. He’s even taller than Winston.

          • DaCoaches Mustache

            Just because Winston has a year round tan, doesn’t mean that he is a running qb.

        • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd JumpingDaShark (ButchDeadlift)

          That was awesome.

          For all this talke of Keuchly, Lach was faster AND bigger.

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd JumpingDaShark (ButchDeadlift)

      No need to spy Floyd, Irish.

      Winston has rushed 7 times for 25 yds since the bye.

      That’s like Cutler #s. He’ll scramble when the play breaks down, but won’t be running read-options.

      We have athletic rushers now that can track him down when he starts scrambling. Floyd and Washington are just as fast (or faster), and Mcphee and our ILBs aren’t slouches either.

      WInston is also coming off a minor inj, so their staff will be extra cautious with him.

    Real question. Say someone was going to be in Paris week from Sunday and wouldn’t mind watching Bears/Giants. How would that someone do it?

    NFL Sunday Ticket, Roku & VPN.

    Get a VPN subscription, Slashdot.org has several you can choose from:
    https://deals.slashdot.org/search?query=VPN+Unlimited

    And then setup a Roku device with that VPN service, connecting to a US hub. Launch the NFL Sunday Ticket et voila, il est facile.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      don’t need NFL Sunday Ticket, if the person has a cable subscription and Bears/Giants is the game being broadcast in their area, then they could use Fox Sports Go app. – Still would need the VPN

      • Bender McLugh

        good call, didn’t think of that

    • Irish Sweetness

      Ahem.

      Now feed 2 all

      No VPN. No money. No credit cards. Not HD either, but it’s free so ….

      You can get HD games on HeHeStreams, baseball, football, basketball … stream them anytime or live….that’s what I use. Y’all would have to pay for that, and it’s a weird donation system, there’s no fixed price. If you qualify as poor or live in a poor country, it’s free. It’s a one-woman show so it’s very personal. Good though. You can watch condensed or full show.

  • CanadaBear

    If Winston has time the Beloved will have their hands full. If they can pressure him, the Bears win.

        I can only imagine what a “cherry” Outlander would bring these days. If I was single or had a lot more money, I’d have a lot more than 5 bikes (at one time I had 8 bikes). Compared to a lot of hobbies cycling is cheap. The initial buy-in can be expensive (unless you’re OK with used) but after that maint is cheap and it’s free to ride most places.

        • Doc Nitty

          You still riding a lot in your retirement days? Good riding up there?

          • CanadaBear

            Got my left knee replaced at the end of Aug. Still riding indoors. Go to see the surgeon Mon and I hope he releases me to ride outdoors. Of course, I don’t esp like riding in the rain so it will mostly be indoors until the rains end. I’m a roadie and it’s not great unless you don’t mind riding on a busy highway sometimes. The off road riding is supposed to be great. Typical Island with a ridge of mts. Up and down quite a lot and some of it is quite steep. I’m scheduled to get my right knee replaced in March.

            Once I get the other knee replaced, I’m hoping to go back to riding longer distances. Before surgery I was riding every other day for about 20 miles. Takes about 2 hours. Lots of up and down.

    Nick Saban said he didn’t know it was Election Day. Nick Saban is the highest paid employee by state of Alabama. He also works in education.”

    And he’s a workaholic who only cares about this week’s game plan.

    Why do we care whether he voted or not?

    He’s fabulously wealthy. He’s going to BE fabulously wealthy regardless of who gets/got elected.

    • CanadaBear

      Not to mention that Saban is a known liar. Of course, he knew it was election day. That was his way of not answering who he voted for.

    “DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    Last political point of election season.

    Romney 2012: 59,142,004
    Trump 2016: 59,611,678

    Wasn’t about his movement. Was about HRC.”

    Not exactly a revelation.

    • willbest

      For all the talk about racist America
      The GOP candidate
      Bush 2 – 62 mil
      McCain – 59 mil
      Romney – 60 mil
      Trump – 60 mil

      The Dem candidate
      Kerry – 59
      Obama 1 – 69
      Obama 2 – 66
      Clinton – 61

      Obama was a uniquely liked President.

      Exit polls isn’t precinct analysis. But the early indication is that Trump didn’t do any better among Whites than Romney (although the type of whites he did better with changed hence the vitrol by the “good” whites against the “bad” whites). Where Trump made up ground was among minorities, where Clinton do terrible compared to Obama. In fact, it cost her PA because early indication is that African American vote in PA was down 20% from 2012.

      • That Guy

        That seems to be what happened. Hillary basically failed to mobilize voters in the swing states. Polls didn’t help her either. I’m sure a lot of apathetic voters that don’t care for Trump decided not to vote when she was polling so strong.

        • willbest

          Here is another metric. Don’t have the final weeks in yet but Hillary and outside groups spent $687 million on the election or roughly $11.26 spent per vote. Trump and outside groups spent roughly $308 million for roughly $5.1 per vote.

      • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd JumpingDaShark (ButchDeadlift)

        I don’t think it was the racism, though that and misogyny didn’t seem to bother uneducated whites enough to deter them.

        Hillary was simply an uninspiring candidate.

        She was like Gore but with a vag and FBI investigation.

        If the Dems had nominated Bernie, he would have won PA, Michigan, and maybe even Florida (Jewish conspiracy!)

        Bernie also would’ve energized the base and got more turn out.

        If Hill was his VP, the women vote would’ve still gone for him since that would still be historic.

        But, the Dems decided to rail-road Bernie, so IMO, they got what they deserved.

        #FeelTheBern

        • willbest

          Bernie was having serious issues with minorities, so I don’t know how well that works. Plus uneducated whites don’t give a fuck about free college. Its actually classist bullshit if you stop to think about it. Only about 20-25% of people need college degrees, why should 100% of people pay for that. You are basically taking from the uneducated to give to the children of the educated.

          He would have the benefit not being criminally investigated, but then Does Mark Cuban or Bloomberg run if its Trump v. Sanders? Does the NRO wing of the GOP pitch the same fit when its Dove Sanders rather than Hawk Hillary?

          If Clinton wasn’t inevitable, and Bernie had a shot does the GOP field clear faster or maybe push somebody else into a winning position?

          Does the Corporate controlled media go full in the tank for Bernie the way they did Hillary? You know the talent leans that way bet maybe the editors reign it in.

          Bernie would give Trump the ability to take more centrist positions in the general

          Lots of factors.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd JumpingDaShark (ButchDeadlift)

            Uneducated whites maybe don’t care about free education (though maybe they do if they have kids) but they didn’t really care about the wall or Isis either.

            The main issue they cared about and why they rejected Hillary was the economy, and on that, a lot of them actually liked Bernie’s position.

            Like a rep politician from the south said, Bernie contrary to popular belief is not all that alien to working class whites. Many still remembered FDR, and in a lot of parts, Bernie was seen as an FDR figure fighting for the little man.

            That’s essentially how Trump painted himself, and why he actually agreed that in some ways he and Bernie did have common ground.

            Might find out in 4 years if Bernie/Elizabeth Warren run against him.

          • willbest

            Warren will be 71. Bernie 79.

            The biggest crime committed by the Clintons against liberals (they have plenty of greater crimes to the country as a whole) was the utter destruction of the Democrat farm system as a means to pave the way for Hillary. You need to look west. My money for 2020 for the Dems is Kamala Harris or Tammy Duckworth. I doubt Duckworth has the chops. She is at best incompetent, but she has a great personal story and would do well with favorable press. She is going to need a lot of tutoring and political polishing though. Harris on the other hand seems the better politician, but I know a lot less about her.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd JumpingDaShark (ButchDeadlift)

            Hey, they’ll get the AARP vote, the biggest voting block out there!

            The touting for Harris already began that same night b4 Clinton even conceded, so I can see that.

            I’m curious about the Rep.

            My guess is Marco Rubio who in defeat looked more Rep than Trump in victory.

            Ryan is another possibility, but he might be more powerful now than even Trump lol

          • willbest

            Well we will see how the recession recovery is going to see who challenges Trump. Though if I am right about trump in that he just wanted to be a footnote in history and not a forgotten D-list billionaire and would rather spend his time doing ribbon cutting he might not even run.

  • Irish Sweetness

    I’m kind of surprised by all the blowback from the election. I mean, there were two bad candidates, and probably the one for change was the one that won. Like any Bears’ rook, I’ll give him three seasons before I call him a total bum. He said he’d repeal obamacare and replace it with a competitive model – no details, but that was both campaigns. He has to do that now. Corp tax to 15%. Has to do it now. Wall. Build it. Racial tension. Build it.

    Will he fight the Federal Reserve and face the real problem?

    Will. He. Fuck.

    • willbest

      The thing you need to understand about the US though is that minorities are just conscripts in the White vs. White war that is escalating. The “good” whites lost and the “bad” whites won. How Trump will govern is anybody’s guess. But building a wall and enforcing immigration, rolling back NAFTA and tariffs on imports are bad for college educated whites and neutral to positive for non-college educated whites. None of it has anything to do about minorities and everything to do about money and control.

      Ending the Fed would be good for everybody, eventually. Though it would be a right mess for everybody in the short to mid term. And that is the real problem. Humans aren’t good thinking 1 generation down the line. If they were, things would be a lot more sane. Americans are uniquely situated in the global economy to avoid economic pain from our ill conceived policies, and we will do it until the rest of the world decides its more trouble than its worth. At which point things will get messy.

      I’m also curious how light it is.

      Of all the stuff you posted, that’s prob the one I would want to ride most just out of curiosity.

      Still need to figure out the safety part. Like maybe if both feet leave the handles while doing +20MPH, the rider gets wrapped up in a foam bubble or something.
