Three Final Thoughts on Bears v. Eagles

| September 19th, 2016

Thought One

Jay Cutler isn’t a game manager. He’s a slinger. Let him sling it tonight.

Thought Two

Better run game wins. I think Jeremy Langford is about to have a breakout performance on the national stage.

Thought Three

Wildcard of the night: Darren Sproles. He still has the burst in the return game and the Bears can’t afford to give Wentz short fields or, worst case, points from specials.

    Todays the day Bro!

    Unleash the Kraken!

    Show no mercy!

    How do you like dem apples?

  • Irish Sweetness

    Lots of injuries around the league. Lots. Especially running backs. Waiver wire time for Fozzy Whittaker, Christine Michael, Charles Sims, Matt Asiata.

    Fair play to Sam Bradford. Good job with that line in his first game.

    How much would it have cost us to line the bottom of our roster with an Anquan Boldin or a Torrey Smith?
    Not a lot.

    Be safe, Jay.

    • Bears didn’t want an Anquan Boldin. They have their top 3 WRs already. And they’re trying to go young, so they don’t want anybody taking snaps from Kevin White (as they shouldn’t. He needs to be given a chance to develop).

      • Irish Sweetness

        Point being you can have one of those guys for next to nothing – or could have had. A vet pro who knows the game….. as a roster filler. Who’s teaching up Kevin White? Alshon Jeffrey? Where’s his mentor?

    • willbest

      Christine Michael should have been on a roster already.

    GAME DAY GO BEARS! Let’s make Wentz wince… or something like that.

  • BerwynBomber

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog “Just finished watching Packers v. Vikings. I don’t think either team is great. Division could be wide open.”

    MIN’s D, if not great, is top-notch. Questions marks for them will be keeping Bradford on the field and determining how much they will miss the usual AP production.

    Cheese were never great. They are perennially overvalued because of Rodgers, whose slide from immortality continues from last season. McCarthy doesn’t help either. He’s too cute a play-caller against a smashmouth team like Zimmer’s. Trust a Fox-coached team more in a game like that.

    The division is, indeed, wide open but it will be a dog fight. My guess is MIN, again, will be the team to beat.

    • Scharfinator

      I think so too. That Minn defense is for real – the only thing stopping them is QB and how long AP is out.

      • BerwynBomber

        Bradford played extremely well last night. He’s a bit like Jay in that, if he is on, a good team can certainly win with him. But yeah, questions will remain about his durability, which isn’t helped by his lack of mobility. Even last night he took some big shots.

    • Big Mike

      Fuck the Packers

    • DaBearsBlog

      With those offensive tackles, I give Bradford three games.

  • Freddy G.P. Soft

    Linval Joseph was unblockable. He destroyed the interior lineman by himself. Huge reason the Vikes are so stout because the secondary has weaknesses

  • BerwynBomber

    At this stage of his career Sproles is arguably less worrisome as a return man than he is as a third down back.

  • SC Dave

    I’d like to see some Howard tonight.

    • Freddy G.P. Soft

      #BirdCaged

  • BearDown100393

  • CanadaBear

    That’s really a shame the Fudgies sucked Moose Wang last night. Not feeling all that bad for AP either. Not to mention the Loins. Never feel bad for those bastards. If the Beloved win tonight, it will make things interesting in the division (at least for now).

  • Freddy G.P. Soft

    Ap only out two weeks. Knee flexed back, not torn.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      AP is a cyborg, I can’t believe he is out 2 weeks. Is the replacement part for his knee on back order?

    • BerwynBomber

      Looks like Garrappolo’s wasn’t as serious as first presumed either, but doubtful he will be available before Brady returns.

  • Freddy G.P. Soft

    Jay Cutler isn’t a game manager. He’s a slinger. Let him sling it tonight.

  • Freddy G.P. Soft
  • CanadaBear
    • SC Dave

      But of course.

  • J. C.

    Thought 4, if the Eagle disrespect this country and the game it should be turned off. Boycott the sponsors and cut the purse strings.

    • BillW

      A bit extreme, but I agree with the thought. I get the concern over police profiling and overreacting (undoubtedly due to stress), but what does that have to do with America as a country?

      “I hate America because there are problems to be solved.” That makes no sense at all.

      • Sactowns#1

        A: “Hey everyone. There’s serious problem that needs to be addressed”
        B: “Shut up! Now lets plan ways we can stop hearing about this problem”

        • WP34

          B.

          • BillW

            My problem is disrespect for America as a country because of this issue. Disrespect for the coverup and protection of officers who are clearly out of line is appropriate. But for America as a whole? That’s misplaced and weakens the issue in my mind.

          • Sactowns#1

            What exactly do people need to do to prove to you they “respect America? ” Stand for the anthem? Put their hand over their heart? Wear a lapel flag pin? Say some magic incantation? Do you feel Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t properly “respect America”? I’m curious.

          • wreckinball

            You can protest
            Just not at work
            Fans paid to see a game not a protest

          • Sactowns#1

            Did they not see a game? I go to games to see Football, not paid government propaganda. So which is worse? And individual exercising their constitutional right or paid govt propaganda? I would say govt propaganda. http://www.sbnation.com/2015/11/4/9670302/nfl-paid-patriotism-troops-mcain-flake-report-million

          • wreckinball

            Geez it has nothing to do with the constitution. He’s not getting arrested but he’s working on getting fired
            Protest ok
            Just do it on your own time
            P-ing off the customers is not good for business

          • BillW

            A couple issues – first, protest is OK. But his protest in my mind is directed at the country – or maybe the federal government? Actually – just who IS this being directed to? If a team chose to honor the local police force and players chose to turn theirs backs, THAT would make sense. But protesting the United States of America as a whole is misplaced in my mind.

            And could be applied to anything. Kneeling because unemployment or underemployment is to high. Kneeling because immigration needs to be controlled better. Kneeling because of gender pay gap. Who chooses what issue – however serious – is important enough to show disresepct for the anthem?

            Second – maybe he is bringing attention more to himself than the issue. If a league star did it, I’d maybe have a somewhat different feeling. But a benched QB whose career seems to be on the downslide does unfortunately raises that issue too.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Apparently Kap is black, I didn’t realise that until all of this came out. Apparently if you’re half-black then you’re ‘black’. You just cancel out the white half. With this new information it would appear he’s protesting the treatment of blacks in America since before ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ was on. The Before Time.

          • BillW

            Let’s not be naive. It’s not like the Olympian who happened to not put her hand over heart like the other gymnasts did. He is obviously making a point by kneeling.

          • WP34

            Sac – chill out. I am here for Football. IT’s Friggin game day!

            You seem interesting in debating this here, I not debating this on this board, especially with your tone accusing people of not listening with comprehension, as if you are the only smart guy in the room.

            I could care less that Kap wants to wear pig socks or whatever to practice.

            I have not researched this is as I would if I were debating this with Kaps agent. I am a statistician.

            This isn’t high school anymore.

            IT’s Friggin game day!

          • Irish Sweetness

            How do you ‘respect’ a country, anyway? Isn’t it only people that get respect?

        • BillW

          ??? Who said they should shut up? Not me. Read with comprehension please.

          • Sactowns#1

            Read above. WP, J.C. etc. Also Kaepernik has said repeatedly he loves this country and has family who are in law enforcement, he merely wants to bring attention to the problem and see some concrete policies enacted. Try listening with some comprehension. I also haven’t heard a single player say they hate America. Do you have some source for this?

          • BillW

            OK – I was too strong in trying to make a point. I give you that and accept the correction.

            I do feel the chosen form of protest is disrespectful to the country. No matter what his intentions or feelings are. We play the anthem as a sign of respect for the country these competitions are staged in. Some people claim that’s corny or whatever. I happen to think it makes sense. So to choose to not honor America as a form of protest to one issue – however serious – is misplaced in my opinion.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Honestly, Bill? One dude in a stadium, at a game you’re not at, is kneeling during the national pop song … and it really bothers you? The nation being ripped off for a hundred years by the bankers, crack/murder/hate-filled/alcohol-fuelled streets compounded by poverty … all controlled by the educational system and societal-access avenues that are all streamed to keep out you the undesirable ?

            Kap is just a spoilt nappy-headed millionaire miscreant who’s been living in a bubble his formative years. And football is just a game.

          • BillW

            Doesn’t bother me as much as I’m making it sound. I simply disagree with that form of protest for this particular issue. America is NOT the problem. America for all its fault is the (potential) solution. By America I mean the people, the Constitution, and the the democratic republic system of government. For all its faults, our political system is set up to give us the kind of government we ask for.

          • Jokey

            I haven’t been reading every word in this thread, but I just can’t get too worked up either way. I can see both sides. I think I heard someone (maybe a New Orleans player?) was getting community groups and local police together to have a dialogue and that seems a lot more constructive imo.

          • willbest

            Then he wore police pig socks. They also have zero policy ideas. They are just angry that they are being policed. And quite frankly, its like worrying about the cat while your kids are still in the burning building.

            The solution is pretty obvious. More fathers. And its not just the police carting them off to jail on possession and petty dealing charges unless criminals are creating the majority of black babies. 80% of blacks are born out of wedlock. That is a recipe for disaster. Why don’t black men want to raise their kids? And why do black women open their legs for men that don’t want to raise their kids? And how do you fix that dynamic. And how do you convince people to give it 25 years in order to work.

            If a problem takes you a couple generations to create its going to take you a couple generations to solve. People are looking around for a fucking 2 hours seminar in law enforcement practices that can be implemented tomorrow.

          • Irish Sweetness

            A little … SEXual …HEALin’ baybeeee ….

            …but correction dear friend, good fathers … or at least present fathers.

          • willbest

            well that is what I meant. Even imperfect present fathers is better than no fathers.

        • wreckinball

          What’s the problem?

        • beninnorcal

          Actually, a good question is what is the end game with BLM? What do they want?

          • Sactowns#1

            What does that have to do with Kaepernick. A good question would be “what is Kaepernicks end game?” He has already said in multiple interviews.

          • beninnorcal

            What does that have to do with Kap? That’s why he’s protesting. His gf is all about BLM, apparently. What, you think he thought of it all himself?

          • BillW

            I can look that up, but must confess ignorance. What is his end game?

          • wreckinball

            There is no end game
            Analogous to occupy

          • BillW

            I think Chicago belated is taking positive steps. Mandatory de-escalation training, and trying to break the code of silence.

            I think a large number of seemingly unjustified shootings are stress related. The LaQuan McDonald shooting may well have been an officer who was simply fed up with (in his mind) punks who refuse to respect police authority. And he snapped – and was protected by his fellow officers because “there but for the grace of God…”

          • willbest

            Amusingly, the more likely it was a police murder, the less likely for their to be a large scale BLM riot. I don’t really understand that dynamic.

      • Irish Sweetness

        There’s only one. Take your currency back off The Fed. Problem solved.

    • WP34

      Let those players – protest in the locker room.

      • wreckinball

        Easiest thing to is play the anthem and then bring players out

        • WP34

          Good idea.
          For me, if I had the additional privilege to play in the league, I would want to proudly pay my respects to the flag.

          • wreckinball

            I agree and I think the vast majority of the players do also
            But if the few insist on disrespecting the flag and pi$$ing off the customers then there is not much choice

          • Sactowns#1

            Bye Felicia.

          • wreckinball

            No idea WTF you are talking about but You are being the troll dude

      • Johnnywad

        Not really a protest if A.) you “let them” by dictating where they do it. Or B.) it’s done in private quarters.

        Prolly not happening.

        • willbest

          The Tea Party got permits for their protests.

          • Johnnywad

            Sweet.

    • Sactowns#1

      Oh sweet Jeebus. The trolls are back.

      • wreckinball

        Yea you are

      • BerwynBomber

        Don’t waste your breath, Sac. We’re far outnumbered on this blog. We’re a rare breed: liberals who like football. (Hell, I even support the death penalty, which really puts me on an island.)

        Anyway, I’m all for their right to protest even if I reserve the right to think of Kaep as an idiot.

        • wreckinball

          And the fans have the right to protest
          No matter your thoughts on Kaps issue whatever that is this is a money loser for the NFL
          There is no upside
          Thus I’m surprised it wasn’t already squashed

          • Sactowns#1

            Probably hasn’t been squashed because making everyone salute a flag and say some words is a North Korea thing, not an American one.

          • beninnorcal

            No one is forcing anyone else to salute our flag. I, personslly don’t give a shit what Kap does. But no one is forcing him to play a game for millions of dollars that flies said flag at the beginning of each contest.

          • CanadaBear

            My take on this is, are all the people that are bitching about it standing up at home when the song is performed? Of all the things that are fucked up these days, standing up for a song of conquest that’s almost impossible to sing, is so far off my radar I can’t see it.

          • BillW

            I call unfair. You guys actually have a pleasant sounding anthem. We got stuck with a drinking song.

          • Sactowns#1

            A drinking song would be better because they’re fun and easy to sing. “Here’s to brother Bill, brother bill brother bill….” etc

          • CanadaBear

            No doubt it’s easier to sing. Because of that, Canadians sing the hell out of it at sporting events.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Anthems are funny things. How connected people are to them changes.

            Most Irish people cannot sing the Irish anthem because it’s in Irish. They don’t give a fuck. They’re so far removed from taking up arms to remove the British it’s unreal. Irish catholics were penned up in barbed-wire internment camps in Northern Ireland when I was a baby. We had seen these images before, after the end of world war two. People thought we were going to war with Britain in the early 70s. The new generations? They know how to swipe left and order shit online.

          • BerwynBomber

            I have to admit that I liked his protest better when he sat. Seemed more ballsy. The kneel thing seems like partial respect/protest. Plus, it seems like some fashionable thing we will soon see from Kayne, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, etc.

            The raised fist is cool but it’s borrowed.

          • CanadaBear

            I’m just not offended by the protest. Like you, I think Kaep is a tool but I also think he’s sincere If it gets people talking about the issues, it’s a good thing.

          • BerwynBomber

            Agreed. I’m fine with it. I was just nitpicking.

          • willbest

            My neighbor who is not right wing nutcase (Kasich supporter) does.

          • Johnnywad

            That’s pretty weighty coming from you Canada. If memory serves, you lost a brother in the service. I have heard more folks, in person at least, thinking like you that have actually served or lost loved ones in the line of duty than the other way around.

          • CanadaBear

            I just don’t think people are trying to be offensive, they are trying to make a point.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Mad octave range. As a dude, even if I could sing well, I’d need to suck in 5 helium balloons to get through that.

          • wreckinball

            I was thinking more like an NBA rule about standing and showing respect.
            Maybe a little less than a North Korea thing

          • BerwynBomber

            Agreed with all, though I do wonder if it is costing the league money. I assume it costs Kaepernick money, not that I care.

          • wreckinball

            Ratings for week 1 were way down. We’ll see if it was a blip.
            That will cost money.
            We’ll see. It seems that Kap and the dozen or so buddies are in the vast minority and now are being ignored by the media. My guess it will fade away just like occupy.

        • BillW

          One thing this proves – Kaep DID get everyone’s attention.

          • BerwynBomber

            He did but once you hear him speak … whoa Nellie … doesn’t seem the most informed …

          • BillW

            I make it a point to not listen to professional football players – except members of the beloved. And even some of them are/were a bit painful.

          • BerwynBomber

            I know what you mean. Even when talking their own sport athletes can be a tough listen. Though most QBs in the league come off as pretty thoughtful. Oddly enough, the one who is a complete snooze is Brady. I believe Montana was like that too.

          • BillW

            SNL made fun of that when Montana was on (I think the same episode Sweetness was)

          • Sactowns#1

            Sounds pretty cogent to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ka0446tibig

          • BerwynBomber

            No, he sounds like a moron there. If you truly believe HRC should be in jail you are either that or a blind partisan conservative. Or to put it another way, if you truly believe HRC should be in jail for the email thing, then you better believe Gen. Patreus should have faced a firing squad.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            did I miss something? what are you talking about?

          • willbest

            Hillary’s crime was worse than Scooter Libby and he went to jail.

          • Captain Obvious

            I thought a lawyer would be more careful lobbing the word “crime” when several law enforcement types made explicit that there was no proof of any crime, and certainly not enough evidence to bring a case to trial.

            Ergo, no crime.

            While Scooter Libby deliberately and knowingly disseminated classified information, and admitted to such in his plea bargain. Ergo, crime.

            The two situations are not equivalent, and insisting they are somehow is a political belief not based on facts in evidence.

          • willbest

            As a lawyer, I know how to match a fact pattern to a criminal charge. A crime was committed, it would be an easy case to win based on the fact pattern. He declined to do it because he didn’t want to decide the election himself.

        • Huge Bears Penis

          there’s an idea, the NFL should institute the policy that any player that does not stand for the anthem will be sentenced to death and executed at the 50 yard line.

          • Sactowns#1

            lol. Don’t tempt the rubes. They’ll take you up on it.

          • BillW

            Cage match at the 50 instead of a kickoff. Solves several NFL issues at once.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Death penalty.

          Yes.

          I also support a woman’s right to choose.

          Really could care less about Kaep’s protest. He has the right to look like an idiot and also then prove that he doesn’t just LOOK like an idiot.

          As usual, ESPN, is turning it into a cottage industry.

        • Captain Obvious

          The best measure of your commitment to free speech is if you’re for it even when you don’t like the speech.

          Forgot who said it, but to paraphrase: it ain’t free speech if you’re allowing people to say stuff you agree with. It’s truly free speech if you’re letting people say stuff you disagree with.

          More power to you. Like you, I defy categories. I’m a yellow dog combat veteran. I was THE social liberal in a unit full of southern boys. It was fun watching enlisted guys get educated to reality by their black noncoms.

          • willbest

            I am glad you think the people that interrupt Trump’s rallies in order to stifle his free speech are despicable and worthy of scorn and condemnation. Trump has not once tried stop them from renting a venue and speaking and yet there they are doing it to him.

        • Irish Sweetness

          One wrong conviction, Ber, that’s all it takes for it to e …

          {IRISH! NOOOO!}

          Sorry.

          • Irish Sweetness

            An eye for an eye eaves the whole world blind … except for the last guy .. who would obviously be well-equipped to evade his previous victim.

            With years of appeals it costs more in lawyers fees dealing with death row inmates than it does to keep them in prison for the rest of their naturals, thinking about what they did, all day, every day.

            {IRISH!}

            Sorry.

          • Sauron’s right eyeball

            Eye take great offense to the insinuation. What’s wrong with only having 1 eye?

    • willbest

      I just plan on skipping the first 5 minutes of the game. I have let ESPN and the NFL know that if they can’t keep their color commentary free of politics after that point, I will be resolved to let their advertisers know that I consider the NFL’s politics their politics since they pay for the product.

      I do appreciate the Eagles giving me the opportunity ahead of time.

      • Captain Obvious

        Just curious: is it OK if ESPN and the NFL keep their politics to something you agree with?

        In other words, do you want ALL politics out of football broadcasts, or just the stuff you disagree with?

        • willbest

          Well if its something you support, you tend not to even notice it. But I would be amendable to a blanket ban. It does create the “what is political” though. So I will talk about the two big ones.

          The first is the bringing various veterans out to honor their service. I suppose you could argue that is political but they generally aren’t bringing out officers involved in policy making decisions that could be construed as political. Just acknowledging certain people that are broadly recognized as loving the US through demonstrated acts. They could just as easily bring out a black pastor or inner city youth counsel, or police officer, and sometimes they do do those things, and I don’t consider those political either.

          The other obvious one, I am in favor of breast cancer awareness and research. I am very much against the game being pink for an entire month. I think the way the NFL handled the Domestic Violence thing was reasonably good in terms of packaging a political message in their product. They paid for #NoMore campaign which while getting some commentary time in game, was primarily done through paid advertising. Advertising is the cost of not paying for the football game (or paying less for it than you otherwise would), and so that is just what you accept in order to get the product at a “discount”. Now it would be in the NFL and Networks interest to show you products you might be inclined to buy or products you already buy as a means of brand reinforcement, but that is their decision.

          I also don’t mind the pre-game human interest stories where the players sometimes talk about their politics in addition to charity work they do. Its the interweaving of the political message into the product that is particularly off putting.

          Now you could argue that art regularly operates as an allegory for life and sports are art, but then most political art like say District 9 and Elysium, are in the show not tell category.

          LOL. You know, I wish Kap hadn’t started this, and I feel like it’s a misguided tangent taking focus off the root cause of the problem. But that said, I’ll be damned if I wouldn’t stand up for his right to do so.

          What good is forcing somebody to fake salute something they don’t respect anyway? My bottom line, as always, Fuck’em. Just don’t come crying to me when the North Koreans attack your house Red Dawn style Kap. You’re on your own.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Capn was right. The media invented it. If they focused their camera on someone picking their nose during the anthem, they could vilify that person. There were what 70, 80 thousand people in that stadium? Ignore him, it goes away.

            It’s like these school mass murders. Don’t report who did it, media – that’s on you. That’s why they do it, I think. For celebrity, for somebody to remember their name or pin their picture on their wall. Champions of losers. The media make them legends, when they should be redacted..

            That only work if you control the narrative. ISIS is out there telling the Muslim world that these guys setting off homemade pressure cooker bombs are holy men and will get their 72 virgins. If you are already predisposed to that sort of thing it won’t matter that the US media is downplaying the attack.

          • Irish Sweetness

            What the US media is downplaying is that America has had its finger in every pie on the planet since WWII and invading Afghanistan and Iraq poured fuel on the whole thing. The CIA are responsible for the Taliban directly, indirectly, they created ISIS by the perceived attack strategies on Islamic states.

Many people have terminated their Sunday football pass and the ratings were down both Sunday and Monday. It’s time for the league to take a firm stance. If I pulled a stunt like that at work I would get fired and I run the Dealership. They need to do their job and stand on a soap box after work.

    • willbest

      I would like to comment that as far as the NFL is concerned the people that are upset with the protests are far more tolerant than the people who think the protests are appropriate. And here is why. The players are on the job. The NFL gets to set the terms of that employment. The NFL has decided (to this date) that allowing the player protests is less harmful to its bottom line then telling them to cut that shit out.

      Further CBS, NBC, Fox, ESPN can either choose to feature the protests as they have been doing or ignore them completely. Their news wings might be inclined to report on it as being newsworthy, but production staff need not acknowledge it when they create the product. They too have come to the decision that giving attention to the protests is better for their bottom line.

      Now obviously they can all be wrong about about the business implications, but if you don’t think the decision by the NFL to allow the protests is about money then you are left arguing that a for
      profit organization, run by a bunch of greedy billionaires that have no problem coercing cities to publicly finance their stadiums have at least by majority decided this is the issue worth taking a stand on, economics be damned.

      • wreckinball

        It’s a racial thing. They are worried about a work stoppage if they crack down.

        They may be right

      • Captain Obvious

        I agree with you one one thing: the media is responsible for the protests. Didn’t Kap kneel in the first game and no one noticed? Media focuses on it, and suddenly it’s a big deal and more players start doing it. How much did we pay attention to what the players were doing during the national anthem before?

        To a degree, Kap has been successful with his protest, getting people’s attention. But the media drove the narrative.

        Being a guy who wore the uniform in combat, I seriously don’t give a flying fuck what people do during the national anthem. I didn’t fight to defend the song, or even the flag. I volunteered & fought for 300+ million people and the principles we all share in common — which includes the right to protest.

        In the end, the NFL is laughing up its sleeve about the protests. All that free publicity, and good vibes from the freedom-of-speech types who think that the NFL is a bully pulpit for Kap and others, and good vibes from the ‘Murica types who appreciate the giant flag fluttering before every game, the combat aircraft flyovers, and being able to point and laugh at the backup QB kneeling during the anthem. It’s all good publicity to the NFL.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Aren’t they in some way supposed to share the same ideals? Isn’t that what life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is about? If that’s true then it’s hypocritical of any American to say Kap should get this or that punishment. Freedom of Speech. He’s guaranteed it. Not really, bring up the power elite and you’ll get short shrift, but y’know what I mean.

          Viewership was down 8% over 2015 and 2014 in week 1. So I doubt they are laughing their ass off. That doesn’t mean the protests were responsible, but it does mean the NFL has to consider them seriously as the cause.

      What about free speech, J.C? Players aren’t employed by the NFL. Any problem a team owner has with someone exercising their right to free speech on their dime … different story .. .but isn’t that right kind of what the soldiers are supposedly fighting for?

      And Welcome.

      • willbest

        Don’t be so obtuse. The NFL players get flagged and fined for excessive celebration, they get fined for being overly critical of the refs and owners. Hell they get fined if they don’t talk to the press enough. There are all kinds of restrictions on their freedom of speech and expression. You can’t just say oh well this one is okay. And freedom of speech is only a protection from the government, not your employer. As has been made perfectly clear by many liberals.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Like Brandon can’t wear a certain color shoe? He gets fined for that. Pays his fine.

          Kap should therefore I guess, get fined, yes. Then he’ll pay those fines. He’s got a lot of money.

  • BillW

    Can’t find the stats, but the inability to count on Rodgers mounting a 4Q comeback is definitely a thing.

    No mistake – if the Pack cut him like they did Sitton (how’s that working out) I’d want the Bears to pick him up. But he seems like a prima donna that can’t fathom being behind. Instead of putting the team on his back and getting that last score.

    • Jokey

      Don’t forget his Hail Mary comebacks from last year. But last night he was hurried all game – pressure makes all those elite QBs look bad.

      • BillW

        No doubt he is the best Hail Mary QB in NFL history. Sounds sarcastic, but I do mean that as a compliment.

        Here are the stats that I found – can’t verify their accuracy but they are from Sporting News. (EDIT – before the 2016 regular season started).

        7-27 when trailing entering 4Q in the regular season. 1-4 in playoffs.

        However they say he has 10 4Q comebacks, so something is off.

        They defend him by saying he is 70-9 regular season when entering 4Q with a lead and 6-2 playoffs. And he is 80-39 regular and 7-6 playoffs. Presumably in the regular season they are 3-3 when tied at the end of 3. (Maybe they call those 3 wins a 4Q comeback?)

        The article goes on the try to point out that 4Q comebacks is a meaningless statistic. I’d not mind that argument except for how so many people fell all over Favre for being so great at it. Either it’s a big deal or not – can’t be selective about it.

        I agree it can be overrated and misleading – but there is nothing misleading about losing 75% of the time when tied or losing entering the 4Q.

        Still a first ballot HOFer, but it’s an obvious weakness.

        • willbest

          I suspect it would be 4Q comebacks that you then lose in overtime. Didn’t he get jobbed by that in the playoffs when Seatle marched down the field and got a TD and he didn’t get a chance to take the field?

          • BillW

            I think they count a tie entering the 4Q as a comeback opportunity. Anyway, the numbers add up if that’s the case.

            The remarkable stat is that the Packers had a lead entering the 4Q in two-thirds of the games Rodgers plays. So if anything, the team as a whole is not conditioned to playing from behind. Or maybe it’s McCarthy and not Rodgers.

            Enough of a sample size to suggest that you can’t afford to fall behind the Packers – but no need to fear a “Rodgers mystique” if you have a lead.

          • willbest

            I don’t know, it always seems like you can count on needing to stop Rodgers 6 times from inside the 10 when there is less than 5 minutes in the forth quarter.

    • Sactowns#1

      My #1 tip for any sporting event, bring a flask! I have a glass flask from the 40’s but you can get plastic ones from most the major liquor chains now. #2- bring in your own snacks. The NFL allows food to be brought in in bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12″x6″x12″
      or one-gallon re-sealable 10″x10″x2″ clear freezer bag. #3- Ignore the drunks. inevitably there will be some loud obnoxious drunk just looking to pick a fight. ignore him. He may chide you or provoke you. ignore him. #4- Have a great time and be positive force out there! #5 Take pictures to share here on DaBlog.

      Really anything you can leave in your car do so. They search bags and pat you down. I would reccomend getting a proper buzz beforehand and just using the beer in the stadium to maintain it, as it ridiculous expensive.

      The big pro shop is on the south side of the stadium. If you have never been down to SF before, walk around the perimeter. You can also get outside to be near the columns (at least you can on the club side which requires a club ticket, I don’t know about the west side). After the game, you should be able to just walk down to the bottom of the 100 level to get right near the field, before the game the attendants usually stop you and ask to see your tickets.

          When I used to get buzzed up before games, I would eat a lot of salty foods before going in and peanuts during the game. That way I normally wouldn’t need to take a bathroom break during the game. If you’re in the north end zone, there is a good chance you’ll miss part of the 3rd quarter to take a bathroom break during halftime because there is not enough bathrooms and the lines can be ridiculously long. I’ve missed up to six minutes of the 3rd just to take a leak during half time.

          For some reason I can’t explain, I enjoy beer at a football game enough to way overspend. Not unusual to have about 5 or 6 at the game. The “record” is 10 at the Bears/Saints championship game. Found memory with my older son.

      Number 1 tip – ENJOY! Especially enjoy the fans. If the Bears do well, you will have a dozen or more new best friends all around you. You’ll be high fiving like you’ve known them all your life.

      I only go to one or two games a year now. I’m 64 years old and by the second half I feel and act like a 33 year old. (Do the math – I was 33 in 1985!).

      I even do the junk yard dog thing if the mood strikes me. And I sing the fight song as loud as anyone.

    I am having a hard time trying to pick my score for this game. I am thinking 24-17 Bears, but I am having difficulty assessing Houston’s skill. The chiefs were supposed to be good, we were supposed to be bad. But we appear to have played them just as tough. Meanwhile the Browns are bad, which doesn’t make the Eagles better than expected just better than them. Wentz wasn’t particularly efficient but he didn’t make any mistakes. Its too early to say for sure, but he doesn’t look any worse than Oz who has beaten us twice (with good defenses in support). You have Cutler who is money on MNF, but the Bears need to get their losing at SF monkey that has plagued them the last two seasons off their shoulder.

      I think we win by two scores easily. And I like the possibility of the Wentz/Pederson marriage working out for Philly, I just think it is way too early for them to be winning roadies against formidable opponents.

      • SC Dave

        We’ll have to see on formidable. Have not been that at home since Lovie left.

  • Captain Obvious

    How is Philly’s secondary? Any chance White actually runs some go routes and burns them long?

    I really want to see him light it up. Basically, I’m hoping for validation for Pace’s first draft. I guess I’m needy.

    • willbest

      Only if he has recovered enough from his Hamstring.

    • BillW

      Agree – week 2 may still be too early to see things start coming together but being on the national stage I’d sure like to see us take control in at least one aspect of the game somewhere. With some consistency rather than a strong opening and zilch after the opponent adjusts.

    • PaceBot 2000

      good safeties and suspect corners. Should be a great game for the WR corps.

    Conor Barth’s place-kicking debut in Soldier Field.

    • PaceBot 2000

      gulp

    • Huge Bears Penis

      cut him!

    • BillW

      Will not be shocked if he doesn’t last the year.

      I forget who replaced Butler, but he didn’t last long. One miss in particular at Soldier Field had the crowd chanting Butt-HEAD! Butt-HEAD!! I think D Coach didn’t want any more of that.

      EDIT – the immortal Carlos Huerta. Replaced after 3 games by Jeff Jaeger(meister).

      • AlbertInTucson

        Jaeger had two plus decent seasons with the Bears. Made 80%.

        • BillW

          Yes – including a game winner against his former team, which I remember well. I was knocking Huerta. People though Butler was let go too soon, and then Huerta did poorly. Luckily Jaeger was available.

          I don’t think anyone picked up Butler either, so it wasn’t a bad decision. Just like cutting Robbie may not have been. But fair or not, Barth has very little margin of error with the fans. Especially a MNF crowd that will have had a several hour head start in getting into game mode.

          Best case scenario fro him is he has no misses and hits a game winner.

          Best case for me is it never comes down to anything like that because we have a 17 point lead in the 4th and the D is clicking against the rook.

          Worst case – he misses an extra point that costs the game, or they pass on another 50 yarder and lose by less than 3.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I remember watching Jaeger stick it to Da Raidas. Fun moment.

            “Butt Head” played parts of 2 seasons with the Cardinals.

            His son, Drew, is the Cards’ punter.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Ah yes, I remember enjoying watching Jaeger stick it to Da Raidas, who had cut him. A LONG one in Soldier field, If I recall correctly…?

            After his Bear’s run, “Butt Head” spent parts of 2 seasons with the Cardinals before hanging it up.

            His son, Drew, is the Cards’ punter.

  • PaceBot 2000

    I have full confidence that Birdcage will have watched the film and taken furiously scribbled notes on everything he did wrong.
    Birdcage, here is a plea from the fans. Don’t be afraid of the Kevin White WR screen, the Royal underneath or in the flat routes, the Alshon on 1st or 2nd downs for 6 to 10yds, an early backshoulder bomb to get a PI call to move those chains fast. Don’t be afraid to use your fullback or Unrein or fake using them to hit Miller or a WR for an easy completion. Don’t be afraid to move the pocket or let Jay bootleg and fucking go deep. In short Birdcage, we say to you, “do your fucking job”. Please.

    Sincerely,
    Common Sense

    • Freddy G.P. Soft

      • PaceBot 2000

        haha, I love that someone went out of their way to make a youtube video of Nathan Lane screaming throughout Bird Cage.

        • Freddy G.P. Soft

          In my head, every time the Bears do something bad offensively, I imagine Loggains screaming like that on the sideline.

          • PaceBot 2000

            or when an opposing player gets tackled to close to the sidelines. Or an assistant coach up in the booth spills a little glass of water and it touches his arm.

          • CanadaBear

            I have a feeling this is going to be a running joke for me all season. It will help ease the anxiety about Mr Lane.

    • BearDown100393

      #BirdCage – Throw away the Tice book. Now.

  • BerwynBomber

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog “I sense from traffic patterns, comments, Twitter, conversations…there’s a lot of expectation for Bears tonight. Fans want big performance.”

    For good reason. Rookie QB and rookie HC at home. If we lose this one, the Fox regime is on the clock.

    • That Guy

      Nobody is expecting the Bears to win the big one this year. This is not a make or break game for the season, for Fox, Pace or anyone. Yes, there are some players that need to show improvement from last week (Kevin White in particular). If we lose this week, a good showing next week against the Cowboys and all will be forgiven.

      • BerwynBomber

        I’m expecting them to compete for a playoff spot this year. Could they do it if they lose to Iggles? I suppose. But the 0-2 hole is historically deeper than you might think.

  • TBC

    Aaron Rodgers is broken!!!

    • BerwynBomber

      Zimmer certainly flusters him. W1 proved that Rodgers is still capable of brilliant plays but overall his game has slipped the past year. Could be aging. Happens, especially to QBs who rely on their athleticism the way he does.

    • Sauron’s right eyeball

      It’s ok, I’ve heard he’s moving anyway.

    • Freddy G.P. Soft

      Man, is Jordy Nelson done or what? Stick a fork in the guy. Now he’s slower than Ed McCaffery.

    • BearDown100393

      Well, TBC, let’s put it this way. Now, three years ago Vadgers was
      supernatural. He was hard and he was nasty and he had this cast-iron
      jaw but then the worst thing happened to him, that could happen to any quarterback. He got civilized. But don’t worry kid. You know, presidents
      retire, horses retire, Man-o-war retired. They put him out to stud.
      That’s what Vadgers should’ve done, retired.

    • beninnorcal

      Brave of you to come ’round here today. You earned a bit more respect from me.
      As for Erin: R-E-L-A-X

      • BillW

        I base this on nothing, but perhaps it’s more McCarthy? His surprisingly bad record when behind going into the 4th can’t all be his (Rodgers’) fault. It may not be ANY of his fault.

  • Irish Sweetness

    On thought two : I hope it’s Howard that has the breakout game, Jefe. I don’t see any rabbits in Langford’s hat, y’know what I mean?

    http://putlocker.is/watch-de-palma-online-free-putlocker.html

    Brian De Palma fans, you’re welcome. It was great to hear him say that when he watched ‘Carlito’s Way’ in Berlin after its so-so opening in America, he said to himself “I can’t do better than that.”

    • BerwynBomber

      Much as I defended Porter last week I would not mind seeing a little bit more of Hall. I sense he will be the Bears steal of the ’16 Draft.

      Did you ever see “Blow Out”? Still one of my fave DePalma flicks.

    • willbest

      I would but the U/O on Howard carries at 1 assuming a healthy Langford and Carey.

    • CanadaBear

      I think I read the Beloved have never gone to the playoffs after starting 0-2.

      • MB30SD

        not many do. thus, we DO need to win this game… if for nothing else by my own selfish fucking needs not to have to stomach another fucking loss.

        • SC Dave

          This. It’s all about you and me, MB

  • BearDown100393

    15-1

  • PaceBot 2000

    The Bears will win this game unless that is not the plan of the coaching staff and upper management. It’s just that simple.
    I was thinking 24-20 Bears but with an opposing rookie QB and a week of corrections to the last shitty gameplan there is no fucking way we don’t go out and put up 28pts if not 31.

  • PaceBot 2000

    well herrrrrooo! GP, it looks like we head into tonights game with me behind by 3 points you having the Eagles D and me having Alshon and Kevin White ready to hand down an intense double team on you.
    If I had running backs I’d be unstoppable.

      Draft a quarterback and cut Bradford. Tailspin the franchise for at least a decade.

    • Bender McLugh

      Same as this year; lose with an awesome D

      • EnderWiggin

        With Teddy or Sammy? That’s where I was going with this.

        • Bender McLugh

          Both of them I think. Is there a viable young one they drafted already?

      Dear AbbeyJack,

      How does Ditka not equate with narcissism?

      • Jack Lacan

        Perhaps his sense of the “past” as relevant to now…to the idea that once was…is perhaps influential to now. The difficulty is that he is very egotistical, solipsistic and arrogant.
        I’m thinking of him, perhaps, in a more theoretical way. Apologies.
