Seven Thoughts for Seven Games (Thoughts 3-4)

| October 23rd, 2016

screen-shot-2016-10-22-at-8-04-04-am

Thought 3. On the Run Defense

The Colts ran it for 98 yards. The Jaguars ran it for 54 yards. The Packers had one 30-yard run and otherwise quit on that element of the game altogether.  Even without their best run stuffer on the line (Eddie Goldman) out the Bears are building a run defense that is going to be formidable moving forward.

Why is this important? Because teams only have so many resources.

If the 2017 Bears are able to defend the run stoutly it will keeps downs and distances manageable on that side of the ball. And this will allow them to do in Chicago what Fangio did in San Francisco: save money at the cornerback spot. You saw how consistent and precise Aaron Rodgers had to be to move the ball against the Bears secondary and that secondary was LeBlanc, Bausby and Glenn. That’s what happens when an offense is faced with third-and-eight as opposed to third-and-two. Put three professional corners on the field and a few of those drives are ending far earlier.

Stop the run. Rush the passer. If you do those two things as a defense, you’ll be at the top of the league every season. The Bears seem to have a beat on the former. As for the latter…

Thought 4. On Leonard Floyd

In Richard Dent’s rookie season, he started only three games. He recorded only three sacks. He turned out pretty good, recording double-digit sack totals the next five seasons and seven of the next eight. Over his next ten seasons as a Bear, Dent averaged over 12 sacks per year.

Leonard Floyd is being asked to do far more than Dent was ever asked. He’s battling through nagging injuries. And through seven games, he has 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a touchdown.

There’s star potential in this kid. He’s going to get bigger. He’s going to get smarter on the field. But his performance at Lambeau was this season’s biggest eye opener for me. If he stays healthy, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him approaching ten sacks by the end of the season.

    Gambling on your own professional sport despite being warned such action results in banishment is even dumber. And then get caught lying about it.

  • MB30SD

    Jeff, the nfl is practically a different sport at this point, that equation doesn’t add up.

    One game. Let’s make a call at the end of the season shall we

    • Big Mike

      This team is impossible to evaluate. But when Aaron Fucking Rogers throws the ball 60x against a set of JB defensive backs, wtf do you expect. Bears need to quit drafting MFers that can’t dress on Sunday. I know it’s the luck of the draw with injuries, but enough.

      • CanadaBear

        All of these first rd picks that will be HOF’ers once some flaw is addressed, make me insane. Stop trying to project production down the rd. What did they do in College? Fuck. It can’t be that hard when you’re in the top 10 of the draft.

        • Big Mike

          Look back at the the top 5 from the last few years, there are some misses.
          2012 Andrew Luck, RGIII – bust Trent Richardson – bust, Matt Kalil – started great currently rated below Leno and Massie by PFF , Justin Blackmon – bust

          2013 Eric Fisher, Luke Joekel, Dion Jordan, Lane Johnson, Ezekiel Ansah – all just players, nobody killing it.

          It’s always a crap shoot.

          • BerwynBomber

            Technically, Ansah is more than a JAG. At least he was his first two years.

  • Big Mike

    BTW, serious Cubs hangover, glad Bears aren’t playing this weekend to ruin my vibe..

    • willbest

      If we were lucky the Cubs will win the World Series before the Bears play again.

      • Big Mike

        🙂 Then the Blackhawks will have to step it up, to keep us from wallowing in the misery of the 2016 Bears.

  • willbest

    Yeah I am not going to jump on the Floyd bandwagon until he strings a few of those together. Kyle Fuller had an amazing game his rookie year too. Long was a beast the whole season.

    • MB30SD

      exactly.

      one. fucking. game.?!?!

      • Didn’t you buy a Brock Forsey jersey after his first start?

        • MB30SD

          3 of them in home, away, special bus

  • BerwynBomber

    I hope Fox Chicago gives us MIN/PHI but I’m betting it will be WAS/DET.

    • willbest

      Chicago area broadcast has
      2.1 CBS – Colts v. Titans
      32.1 FOX – Vikings v. Eagles

      for the noon game. Also, I have no idea what is going on but on 3.1 (also a CBS station) it lists Raiders v. Jags. I don’t even know if I get that channel, but I don’t think I have ever seen it have a game listed before.

      The late game is on CBS and is Pats v. Steelers for some unknown reason. One would think Chargers @ Falcons would be far more interesting. The Chargers aren’t as bad as their record, and it won’t be a bloodbath like the Pats/Steelers game and won’t be crappy like the Bucs/9ers game. Its also a game CBS should have the rights to anyway since the visiting team is an AFC team.

      • BerwynBomber

        Thanks. I’m betting the PIT/NE game was set before R-berger went down. Otherwise, would have had a game of the year type feel.

        Yeah, don’t know that other channel either.

        • willbest

          No doubt it would have been a great game but they knew this was coming, and it shouldn’t be all that difficult to reassign your A team crew, and I would bet that if there were some issue that locked in thePat/Steeler game, the NFL would be more than accommodating (due to the 12% ratings drop).

          I guess this is just a sign that, nationally, people would rather see the Pats beat up on a backup QB than watch two potent offenses, one of which lead by the MVP front runner, go at it.

      • AlbertInTucson

        We get Raiders-Jags instead of Colts- Titans.

        VIkes-Eagles and NE at Pitt.

  • Irish Sweetness

    That return by Landon Collins is the best return for a defensive TD I’ve ever seen.

  • willbest

    So far Gould has kicked a 29 yard FG and made a PAT.

    • MB30SD

      HOF!!!!

      smfh

      • SC Dave

        Its hard for kickers.

        • MB30SD

          Pssshhhhh, that literally ALL thise mofos do all day erra fucking day. We used to hate the kickers. Fucking cake walk compared to tue rwst of is. They do one thing, and get paid a shitload to do it… when they suck it’s a fucking joke

  • Sauron’s right eyeball

    One good thing about being a Browns fan is they always get a high 1st round draft position. Hey at least they’re good at something right? Should the Bears go for the gold and draft Deshone Kizer?

    http://www.scout.com/nfl/browns/story/1710067-deshone-kizer-scouting-potential-qb-target

    • MB30SD

      no, that’s the thing… they waste their high draft picks more than we do, and that’s really saying something. I mean, johnny fucking manziel…. seriously browns. smfh

      • Sauron’s right eyeball

        Eye mean’t…..the Browns are good at wasting 1st round draft picks. You’ve got to admit that the Bears are getting better at this as well.

        • MB30SD

          Ahhh, yes on both accounts

    • AlbertInTucson

      Kizer looked LESS than impressive against a not great Stanford last week.

      • Sauron’s right eyeball

        I’d never heard of the dude before I read that. Lol

      • MB30SD

        What about the Washington kid

        • AlbertInTucson

          Prior to this season the rap on him HAD been that he was making a living on weak opponents but he seems to have shed that label this season.

          • MB30SD

            Yes, the one game this uear i saw against Stanford i think he kicked the shit out of them. Looked solid

    • Irish Sweetness

      We should find out if the Browns want Kizer, and if they do, draft someone else.

      • Sauron’s right eyeball

        Funny…I WAS thinking the exact same thing. Haha

  • CanadaBear

    Loved the game last night. Still in shock. I truly thought it would never happen in my lifetime. Now get 4 more wins, you fuckers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Irish Sweetness

    That was rough on Keenum. Blitz is on, he throws the hot route .. .and the receiver is back around the LOS. The hot route was a TD if he was on it. That Rams OL is terrible. Half of Gurley’s tackles this season have come from behind the LOS. Giants won that on D. If Eli can’t move the ball with Shephard, OBJ and Cruz …

  • willbest

    In the not anointing anybody yet department, Wentz’s INT there was very Cutleresque. He has come back down to Earth a bit after his hot start. Not going to pronounce him another Bortles either.

    • BerwynBomber

      True but it is MIN. Oddly enough, the MIN D has not turned Jay over much in the last few years. Go figure.

      Bortles looks like a young Cutty to me. Cutty’s PER #s are a bit better but he also played for better HCs and franchises. But they’re both talented/upside guys who are prone to mistakes.

      If I have seen one bad habit of Wentz — and they’re haven’t been a ton — he will toss the ball into double/triple coverage down the middle occasionally. He did it one play against us too but threaded the needle. Wasn’t as accurate vs. MIN.

      • CanadaBear

        His last INT was into quadruple coverage. Literally.

      • Johnnywad

        It seems at times it’s a bit like young pitchers. They hit the bigs and do well for a bit. Then the rest of the league gets to study the film and figure out their tendencies. Suddenly they look like rookies.

        • BerwynBomber

          I think Wentz will be special but will go thru some growing pains. Bortles, for now, looks like Cutty Jr. Nothing wrong with that big picture, but like Cutty, might never be a steady top 10 guy.

          • Bortles much like Cutty, $10M arm, 10cent brain, 1 peso mechanics.

            He winds up like a pitcher.

            That’s why CBs jump his routes and why defenders strip it from him so regularly.

          • Johnnywad

            Agreed. If Bortles turns out to be a middle of the pack starter for a dozen years, I guess that’s worth an early first rounder at the position given the scarcity.

  • Sauron’s right eyeball

    Looks like GP’s handing me a big FU in fantasy this week. Smh. I dropped Cobb after sucking early in the season and GP used him to beat me over the head on thurs. I sat Austin because he was pitiful and he turns in 16 pts. Go figure, smh.

    • Goin to Hell with Pernell (GP)

      And I forgot to start Seabass!!!

  • Irish Sweetness

    Loving this Minny-Eagles defensive bonanza. Lost count of the strips and recoveries and returns. 2 kicks returned I think, the first this year. Great D/ST viewing. Meeting of division champs?

    • CanadaBear

      The Bears would but the BiQueens already paid a ransom for Bradford. They aren’t going down that road again this year.

    • Bradford looked horrible.

      Just totally staring down receivers and missing dump offs

  • Irish Sweetness

    Minny getting smoked. Eagles D is awesome.

    • willbest

      As I have the Eagles D, I approve this message.

  • Irish Sweetness
  • Irish Sweetness
    • willbest

      Heisman trophy winning QB’s does not appear to be a great list to be on in terms of transitioning to the NFL.

      Do they run something that at times resembles and NFL offense?

    • DaMurph

      hes 6’3 and 205 little lean but i dont think his size is a problem.

      • 205, for a QB IS too frail.

        Cutty weights like 220, and sometimes he looks like a ragdoll out there.

        • DaMurph

          Hes a sophmore in college, his weight will go up with training.

        • DaMurph

          Drew Brees 6’0 209, Russel Wilson 5’11 206

  • Malice Halice

    Oh it’s SOOOOOO MUTHAFUCKIN QUIET in Mn! Vikes getting dat ass tagged

  • BerwynBomber

    Gotta hand it to Stafford. Impressive stuff.

    • willbest

      Somebody, might have been you, said he has been the best QB in the NFCN going back to last year.

      • BerwynBomber

        I think he has been. Jay and Bridgewater played reasonably well last year but Stafford played a better than each. Rodgers, of course, turned into a mortal.

  • BerwynBomber

    Brady’s a goddamn machine.

    • Yes, he’s very Hoyerish!

      RIP, destroya.

      Looks like Pats focusing on RBs and Edlemen in this game.

      Always curious how they come out and attack.

      Sometimes it’s TE heavy, other times it’s a Blount game, other times it’s Eldemen.

      Hard to gameplan against them

  • Sauron’s right eyeball

    So far, only Cleveland stands in our way of the #1 pick.

    #playtowinbaby

    • and they’re down ANOTHER QB.
      Went with some dude named Hogan today.

      • Sauron’s right eyeball

        The deserve everything they get for drafting Johnny Shittbird. I hope thier GM got canned over that.

      • CanadaBear

        That’s the guy out of Stanford I think. Smart, accurate, rag arm.

        • He could run, that’s for sure!

        • BerwynBomber

          Was he accurate? I don’t remember that part. He was smart and good-sized, though.

  • 3. Colts are trotting out old man Gore, and their Oline still stucks.
    Jags have Ivory who came off some unkown disease, and Yeldon who looks like a bust.
    GB was lining up WRs in the backfield, and occasionally, Davis who has like 3YPC avg.

    The Vikes and Lions don’t exactly have formidable run games either.

    I’ll still wait and see on whether or not we have a good run D.

    • BerwynBomber

      Exactly. I’m sure it is improved because of Freeman and Travaithan but that wasn’t as murder’s row of rushing attacks.

    • Johnnywad

      Being down Houston and Goldman doesn’t help. Houston wasn’t the stud I’d hoped for, but he was decent against the run.

  • How in the heck are the Lions 4-3?
    That’s gotta be the worst 4 win team in the league.

    • BerwynBomber

      Stafford. Who sucked against us.

      • willbest

        Played with a concussion. Truthiness

  • Bell is sooo good.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      yes he is but that was bogus late hit call on NE. whistle hadn’t blown yet.

  • Is it me, or are kickers sucking more than usual this year?

    • Huge Bears Penis

      No they all suck.

  • Huge Bears Penis

    Boswell sucks CUT HIM!

  • willbest

    This Steelers game is better than I would have thought.

    • MB30SD

      I think that’s just the strange empty joy of jot just having watched us get our asses beat

    • Steeler’s D giving Brady all those crossing routes.

      Only big plays are to Gronk.

      • willbest

        Blount and the eagles D are going to carry me to victory this week

        • I should’ve started the Eagle’s D, but figured the Donkey’s might want revenge against Oz mon night.

          • willbest

            Revenge for not stealing $40 million from them, leaving them with a better QB options and hosing a conference rival?

          • Revenge for Oz essentially giving that team the finger.

            Plus, downward projectory.

    • willbest

      Of course as I say that they decided to not cover gronk for the second time

  • willbest

    Long snaper making plays. Nioce.

    • SC Dave

      Audibles, perchance?

  • Should’ve gone for it.
    Steeler’s D not showing they can stop Brady.

    Got a backup QB, and no AB. Gotta be aggressive.

  • Huge Bears Penis

    Gould should be happy, they say impersonation is the greatest form of flattery. And Pitt’s kicker is doing the best impression of him i have seen all year.

  • AlbertInTucson

    So, Jacquizz Rodgers had more carries and more yards in each of the last two games than he had in his entire stay with the Bears.

    Lovely.

    • MB30SD

      Wanna see my shocked face al?

      • AlbertInTucson

        Well, he DID spend most of his time in Chi in the training room.

        • MB30SD

          Again… shocked face?

          • AlbertInTucson

            Like Captain Reneault (Claude Rains) was “Shocked! SHOCKED to find GAMBLING going on in here.” In CASABLANCA.

  • BerwynBomber

    Fitzpatrick is whining about management and coaching after the Jets game?

    • AlbertInTucson

      This from Mr. 9 INTs in 2 games.

      • MB30SD

        Yeesh

    • beninnorcal

      He’s been hanging around Bmarsh a bit too long.

      • Huge Bears Penis

        is mental instability contagious?

        • Johnnywad

          Yes. Ever date a crazy bitch?

  • BerwynBomber

    “DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog Am I the only one hoping the Bears end up in London next year? Not because I wanna go but because I like watching football at that hour.”

    Not a fan of the London games. In fact, dislike them even more than THNF.

    • AlbertInTucson

      London games?

      No.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Didnt expect a 3-0 score at this point in the evening.

    • willbest

      Was expecting to see cardinals legit murdered, but it’s starting to look like nobody is going to run away with the NFC, and in the AFC it’s the pats then everybody else.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Even NE had more trouble with Pittsburgh than I expected.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Nice clock management there, Cards.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      true but i am not sure i like how the league handles that situation. fumble pile takes forever to get to the bottom i think they should stop the clock in those situations, but then again don’t fumble and you are not in that situation.

    • Carson just looking terrible.

      That pass chart was illuminating.

      Zero passes beyond 10 yds.

      • Huge Bears Penis

        I think they need a new aging gunslinger under center.

        • Been saying it since game 2!

          I don’t know what happend to Palmer after his thumb inj last season, but he looks more like the Raider Palmer since.

          And the Cards are def in win now mode.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Not gonna happen at this point in time, especially with Cutler’ health now an unknown quantity.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Brees’ jersey commercial?

    Not good.

    • BerwynBomber

      I like it. But I’m partial to Breezy.

    • BearDown100393

      The kid seemed embarrassed having to wear it.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Yeah. The dead silence. What was the point?

  • AlbertInTucson

    Atlanta’s coach sent a message to his team today:

    “I don’t trust our defense.”

  • I’m more surprised at how impotent the SEA O has looked.

    This team was on fire the latter half of last season.

    Now they can’t even score a measly FG b4 the half.

    • BerwynBomber

      In semi-fairness, Wilson has been playing thru an MCL sprain for a few weeks. Doesn’t look like he has his usual shiftiness.

      • Huge Bears Penis

        but he drinks his miracle healing water, so that is no excuse.

        • AlbertInTucson

          He writes inspirational notes, too.

          • BearDown100393

            He’s quite proud of getting laid occasionally also.

          • willbest

            Single mom pussy.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Wilson is playing hurt.

      Not scrambling for first downs to keep drives alive like they are so used to.

      Peterson has taken Baldwin out of the game so far.

      Their O-line is shakey, too.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Today Show promo:

    “Winning at all cost generation”?

    I thought his was the “Everybody gets a trophy generation”.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Completely dominated in the first half but only down 3.

    I would be concerned if I were a Cards fan.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Calais Campbell.

    What a beast.

  • AlbertInTucson

    On the other hand,

    More of the same from Seattle to start the 2nd half.

    Seahawk fans aren’t smiling, either.

  • BearDown100393
  • Man, I really like Gresham’s attitude.

    Just seems like a bad dude.

  • I’m enjoying this defensive game.
    80s throwback.

  • BearDown100393

    Best Buy sucks.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Beacause…?

      • BearDown100393

        Christmas advertising before Halloween. Consumerism at its most glutton.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Oh.

          No argument.

          I grew up loving Thanksgiving because the next day started the Christmas season.

  • AlbertInTucson

    McCauley looked like an idiot signaling first down when the linesman is clearly marking it short.

  • Live by the sword, die with the sword, eh Arians?

    In a game where points are scarce, gotta kick it there.

    D won’t shut out SEA forever.

    • AlbertInTucson

      3 looks bigger & bigger as the game gets later.

  • AlbertInTucson

    HERE’S one I have never heard before:

    NHL game delayed due to “Sun Glare”.

  • AlbertInTucson

    ALMOST, Carson.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Verizon spot: Muy Stupido.

    Can’t reach the ball over after you are down, folks.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Wilson looks very ordinary without his fabled escapability.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Wilson rush yards stat is a telling one.

  • AlbertInTucson

    That last Seattle series was so reminiscent of too many we have witnessed from the Bears.

    • Wilson threw a nice lob to Baldwin, but he just dropped it.

      And in spite of total Cards dominance, still only 3-0

      • AlbertInTucson

        Cards are playing with live ordinance at this point.

  • BearDown100393

    Connor could outrun Russell.
    Right now.

    • AlbertInTucson

      I dunno, that looked like a pretty horrific leg fracture.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Just noticed. “Butt Head’s” kid not punting for AZ.

  • Wasn’t that a hit to the chinstrap on Fitz? Isn’t that illegal?

    Fitz seemed like he was calling for it, and he rarely pesters the Refs.

    Oh well.

    Time for Russel to go 3 and out.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Nice call.

  • AlbertInTucson

    WHOOP da baby!

  • Could’ve had Jones

    SMH

    • AlbertInTucson

      “Could have had”.

      Another sad Bear fan legacy.

  • Joe Thomas on the trade block for a 2nd, SEA

    • AlbertInTucson

      After seeing how needy they are, I wouldn’t settle for anything less than a first.

      • I’m not even sure if SEA would have the cap.

        Some buzz about the queens too, but they too are strapped for cash.

  • BerwynBomber

    Dungy’s horrible. Wasn’t he supposed to be running a ministry or something.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Besides looking like an extra from THE HOBBIT.

  • BearDown100393

    Aside from Cheese players, I always hate seeing these players on the back end of that cart.

  • AlbertInTucson

    And there it is.

  • BearDown100393

    Brutal tattoos.

  • SEA can’t fuck this up, but man, I don’t want this game to go to OT

  • holding holding holding holding

  • AlbertInTucson

    In case we forgot that Seattle’ offensive line sucks…

  • AlbertInTucson

    Better throw had that.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Nyet!

  • AlbertInTucson

    Those are what they pay you to catch, Doug.

  • wow.
    Larry Fitz time!

  • AlbertInTucson

    So much for “going for it”, Bruce.

    • exactly.

      • AlbertInTucson

        How come WE all knew that would be huge and Arians didn’t?

        • Hubris.

          And if they somehow pull it off, it’ll only encourage him, when in fact, they didn’t have to put themselves in this hole to begin with.

  • BerwynBomber

    I believe McEvoy was a QB at Wisconsin. Pats and SEA have a habit of doing that. Ex-SEA FB Michael Robinson played QB at PSU.

    • Cormonster

      He played QB, but he was a better safety his last year.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Special teams cost the Cards one game already this year.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Palmer’s pocket awareness is no better than Cutty’s.

  • BerwynBomber

    Horrible forward progress spot. Sorry. You go for extra yards, Larry, should be where you were brought down.

  • AlbertInTucson

    For your consideration:

    1) Will the Cards get into FG range?

    2) Does Catanzaro make it?

    • willbest

      Y and Y

      • willbest

        Doh

        • AlbertInTucson

          Bold prediction, though.

        • AlbertInTucson

          I was leaning to “Yes” and “No”.

  • willbest

    Facemask there

  • willbest

    I feel like the clock shouldn’t stop if you can’t get out on your feet

  • AlbertInTucson

    UH-oh, Cardinals..

  • AlbertInTucson

    Hold?

  • willbest

    Love it when flags determine games.

    • AlbertInTucson

      The holds are pretty blatant. Can’t blame the zebras because Seattle’s offensive line is a sieve.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Is JaMarcus Webb in there somewhere?

    • willbest

      I think he is a guard

    • And he’s not even their worst linemen.
      Let that sink in

      • willbest

        He wasn’t ours either

      • AlbertInTucson

        Talk about scary.

  • So Arians has balls, then he doesn’t have balls.

    Good job, coach.

  • willbest

    Overtime sounds alright. Seattle doesn’t look like it’s going to get a TD

    • AlbertInTucson

      Smart coach, me. Played Baldwin AND Graham this week.

  • willbest

    STFU. Kickoff in OT

  • BerwynBomber

    Not a well-coached game by Arians.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Cards need Johnson to break one.

  • AlbertInTucson

    That throw was late.

  • AlbertInTucson

    If it was on time, Nelson could have run away from that defender.

  • willbest

    Wow

  • AlbertInTucson

    Setting up a TD or a FG miss?

  • Why take a TO?

    Cards got that D on the rope finally, and they basically give them a chance to rest and regroup

    • willbest

      Probably saw something he didn’t like

    • BerwynBomber

      SEA called TO.

      Ignore: I’m on nbcsports.com. Delayed feed.

  • willbest

    What? That was PI. Hand was on the helmet, the ball wasn’t there, defender didn’t look

    • AlbertInTucson

      Nelson should have made a move back to the ball to draw a flag.

      I wouldnt have called that one, either.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Ugly drop, Floyd.

    • I wouldn’t want him on my team, that’s for sure.
      Him and Demaryious Thomas are my least fav WRs.

      Soft chokers.

  • Nice call. Pass it to a choker when you have the all time leading WR with hands of glue and proven clutch stud on the other side.

    • willbest

      It worked to get them in FG range two plays earlier

      • AlbertInTucson

        Floyd giveth.

        Floyd taketh away.

      • Yes, but that’s what happens when you keep throwing it to an inconsistent WR.

        It’s like throwing to Johhny Knox in clutch situations. Not usu a good idea.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Right down broadway.

    Nice job, kid.

  • willbest

    Seattle was saving their offense for OT

  • Something tells me big balls pete will go for a TD

    • willbest

      Well at least until 4th down

  • AlbertInTucson

    No excuse for the Cards D to be gassed.

  • AlbertInTucson

    That was pretty lame, Graham.

    • I too have no clue what route he was running.

      Looked like he thought it was not going his way, and he just stopped.

    • willbest

      he is soft. Seattle D says so

  • AlbertInTucson

    Play on, boys.

  • AlbertInTucson

    I smell a turnover coming….

  • First tie of the season?

    • willbest

      Sounds about right

    • AlbertInTucson

      That would be like a WIN tonight for Seattle.

      • willbest

        I don’t know, it doesn’t feel like cards deserve a win

        • AlbertInTucson

          Seattle sure doesn’t.

  • AlbertInTucson

    My oh my, Momah!

  • willbest

    Next week is the week to play Seattle I would imagine

  • Will Sherman PI again to win game!?

    • willbest

      Nah humiliation to lose the game

  • Maybe someone should yell in Sherman’s face like he blew up last week.

  • AlbertInTucson

    86 plays for the Seattle D.

    Eventually, something has to give.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Sherman getting beat is worth the wait.

  • willbest

    What’s the spread?

  • BerwynBomber

    Gutty effort by SEA.

    ARI has loads of talent but not sure I buy them.

  • willbest

    Commentators are pussy

  • willbest

    Now you kick it

    • AlbertInTucson

      Or not.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Arians, let NY take look at that, you dolt!

  • You have GOT to be kidding me

  • If Wagner got contact, that’s a penalty. WTF?

    • willbest

      NFL will apologize on wednesday

  • willbest

    If Arians fires his sound kicker before the Bears get rid of Barth I am going to be mad

    • Huge Bears Penis

      why. then we can cut Barth and pick him up.

  • AlbertInTucson

    The leap was illegal.

    • Yeah, he was CLEARLY contacted.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Thought that was another “Point of Emphasis” for the zebras?

    • AlbertInTucson

      Again.

    • willbest

      More evidence for the nfl is just a better WWE conspiracy

  • Give it to a rook in a critical situation?

    No thanks.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Another missed FG would be a fitting end to this game.

  • lol Cards DESERVE to lose like this

    • AlbertInTucson

      Arians has EARNED it.

  • willbest

    Wow… This game makes me feel better about being a Bears fan

  • willbest

    Smod

  • whaaaatttt!!!!??

  • Huge Bears Penis

    OMG WTF is with the football gods tonight!

  • MB30SD

    hahahahhahahahahahah

  • AlbertInTucson

    Ah HAH!

  • willbest

    Pete caroll

    • AlbertInTucson

      With his face hanging out.

      • AlbertInTucson

        THAT look on HIS face was also worth the wait.

  • I’m american, i hate ties, but god damn, both these teams shouldn’t win tonight!

  • 90 yd bomb to FItz!

    • Huge Bears Penis

      that would help my fantasy team!

      • MB30SD

        Ffkrf

  • MB30SD

    Like kissing your sister

    • MB30SD

      And i mean me kissing your sister butch

      • She’s evangelical.

        Pretty sure she thinks all Jews are devils!

        • willbest

          Nah they just foolishly try to adhere to the old contract

        • MB30SD

          Hate fuck?

          • MB30SD

            Her not me

  • Huge Bears Penis

    our backup QBs could not throw it a 1/3 of what Palmer just did.

    • willbest

      Connor shaw could

      • MB30SD

        He’s got a leg

      • Huge Bears Penis

        not on one leg

        • willbest

          Well hoyer has an arm, cutler a thumb, and Barkley a … The whole package

          • Huge Bears Penis

            Cutty has been working on throwing left handed.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Do we have any?

  • AlbertInTucson

    Catanzaro’s kick sneaks thru if the Cards dont take that delay of game penalty.

  • They should’ve gave the game balls to the kickers!

  • BerwynBomber

    That game will probably get criticized by some media folks as being “what’s wrong with the NFL?”, but that was an enjoyable slugfest.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Hmm, a mix of defensive excellence, special teams ineptitude and coaching hubris.

    • willbest

      Easily in the top 5 I have seen this season

      • Huge Bears Penis

        which is sad.

    • I liked the defensive struggle.
      But the shoddy specials AND flags kinda dragged it down.

    • AlbertInTucson

      I doubt anybody tuned out.

  • MB30SD

    Bobby wager is a fucking stud. And Michelle tafoya fucking sucks so fucking hard. Smfh
