Atlanta Falcons at Chicago Bears Game Preview

| September 7th, 2017

Why Do I Like the Chicago Bears This Week?

I always like the Chicago Bears. But let me tell you…

The Glennon Saga in 17 Steps

Let’s walk through how this entire Glennon thing happened, step-by-step. Some of this is common knowledge. Some of this is information I’ve acquired. The acquired information is asterisked.

Step 1. Bears decide to move on from Jay Cutler. I’d put this down as happening sometime around November 2016.

Step 2. Bears make Brian Hoyer an offer to return. That offer is low, far lower than Hoyer’s camp hoped, and the journeyman essential tells the Bears to go rub jalapenos in their eyes.*

Step 3. Bears have serious interest in Tyrod Taylor*, hoping the new Bills coaching staff would want to move on to their own guy. (Today the Bills know they miscalculated*. After dumping half their roster and punted on 2017, the know they should have listened to the Tyrod suitors floating around.)

Step 4. Who is left? Mike Glennon. Bears throw a ton of cash at Glennon in what is essentially a lucrative one-year deal that many in the national media scoff at. They are “pumped”. Rumors surface Pace pursued Glennon last offseason. Glennon is the guy.

Step 5. Bears ask Glennon to join fans for their first round draft party.

Step 6. Bears move up to get Mitch Trubisky in one of the most exciting moments in Bears draft history.

Step 7. Glennon ain’t pleased.

Step 8. Bears reiterate ad nauseum, and for no other than reason than to appease Glennon, that the formed Bucs backup is still the starting QB and they’ll bring Trubisky along slowly.

Step 9. Glennon is awful in the spring. This isn’t widely reported because nobody gives a shit what happens in the spring.

Step 10. Glennon is awful in the summer. This is more widely reported but seemingly ignored because Trubisky dropped a couple snaps. Many report that Mark Sanchez is actually the most consistent quarterback in Bourbonnais.


COMEDY BREAK!

COMEDY BREAK OVER!


Step 11. The first preseason game. Glennon is abysmal. Trubisky is great. The fan base gets excited. Trubisky is suddenly on the covers of newspapers. The 2017 Bears are a source of excitement in Chicago?

Step 12. Nothing changes at practice.

Step 13. The second preseason game. Glennon is abysmal. The Bears decide to use Trubisky less, keeping him off the field until he’s joined almost exclusively by third-stringers.

Step 14. The following Wednesday, the Bears ANNOUNCE Trubisky is practicing with the first team. This excites many of us, seeing it as a sign the team is recognizing what is taking place in front of them. What comes from it?

Step 15. The third preseason game. Glennon mounts one good drive. Trubisky struggles in his two drives with the first team, thrives when re-partnered with the guys he’s practiced with for months. John Fox insanely calls Glennon’s performance “superb” and anoints him starter.

Step 16. Trubisky is officially named the backup quarterback on September 6th. What does this mean? It means the Bears believe he’s ready to play pro football. It means the hourglass is flipped.

Step 17. The season starts.

There was never a competition. The Bears never wanted to embrace what they saw with their eyes and give the better player a chance. And now Mike Glennon faces Matt Ryan to open the season in one of the week’s most lopsided quarterbacking duels.

(I’ll have more on Glennon, from a positive standpoint, on tomorrow’s pod.)

Three Reasons the Bears Win

  • Teams that lose the Super Bowl don’t usually have stellar follow-up campaigns. That should be especially true when the team blows the game like the game gave it $30 under the Queenboro Bridge. If the Falcons come out stale and fall behind early, on the road, will they be able to recover?
  • The Bears rushing attack should be as dynamic as any in the league. They can now complement Jordan Howard’s tough downhill style with Tarik Cohen’s sneak-through-the-cracks shiftiness and speed. Atlanta allowed 4.5 yards per rush in 2016. If they allow the same Sunday, the Bears should be able to keep the ball out of Matt Ryan’s hands.
  • Turnovers. Glennon knows the one thing he can’t do if he wants to keep this gig is turn the ball over. With Fox’s defense/run game approach, turnovers will kill any chance of pulling off an upset. I think Glennon will be ultra conservative with the football  and throw the ball into the third row before he considers a difficult pass downfield. This will beg the question: can the Bears get points in the red zone with play-calling and the rushing attack?

Three Reasons They Don’t

  • Pass rush. Is Pernell McPhee actually healthy this week? If he’s not the Bears are hoping Leonard Floyd can blow up two solid, experienced tackles and disrupt one of the best passing attacks in the NFL. If the pass rush doesn’t get home the new look secondary will be dealing with one of the best crops of wideouts in the game. The only thing keeping Atlanta off the scoreboard Sunday is a sustained pass rush. Where is it coming from?
  • Pass rush. The interior of the Bears offensive line is terrific but the tackles have a tendency to start slow. With Glennon being a statue, any pass rush from Atlanta will more than likely either end up with (a) a sack or (b) a poor decision from Glennon.
  • How easy is it to game plan against the Bears offense? Put your defense in the box and dare Glennon and this collection of slot guys to beat you over the top. Chances of that happening: slim. If you believe – as I do – the Bears need to score in the 20s to win Sunday, you have to wonder how they get there.

My Favorite Thing About Atlanta

Song of the Week

How I feel heading into this opening week.

Cause of the Week

The Official Lady Friend of DBB, Ms. Sarah Scully, is running the New York City Marathon this year in support of the Noah’s Arc Foundation (Joakim Noah’s charity). Having done some work with the foundation myself, I will tell you this is a noble cause that will have a positive impact on the youth of Chicago.

You can donate to the cause – even giving just a few bucks – by CLICKING HERE.

About the foundation:

Through the discipline of sports, Noah’s Arc works to develop the confidence and foster the passion that exists within every child. Players become ambassadors for the Drop of Consciousness™ movement, bringing messages of peace, positive change and non-violence back to their neighborhoods.

Don’t Be Surprised If…

…the Bears have their worst home opener attendance in a generation. At of the time of this post, Thursday 6 AM ET, there are still tickets available for this game at Ticketmaster. Not secondary market. Straight-up face value. For those of you who don’t attend live Bears game, I can’t tell you how rare that is. (Full disclosure: I have paid 10x face value for tickets in December when the team had no chance of winning more games than they lost.)

People defending the decisions made by this organization simply don’t get it. The bulk of fans – those not on blogs, on Twitter, calling sports radio – have no interest in this Bears team under Mike Glennon. They are viewing the decision to start Glennon as an admittance that 2017 will be another developmental year. And they’re not going to waste their money on it. As I stated on Twitter a few days ago, the Bears would be looking at a packed, excited house and folks paying 5 x face (or way more) on the secondary market if Trubisky were the starter.

Don’t Gamble, But If You Do…

Under 49.5 points seems like a pretty decent bet for this game. Both teams have good defenses. Offenses are always behind defenses to start the NFL season. And the Bears, far more than the Falcons, will attempt to take the air out of the ball with the running game. If the game finishes 30-17, you win. I’ll put some scratch on the under.

Game Prediction

Scenario One (The Reality)

A close game, probably for the first half and change. Then a collection of three-and-outs from Glennon & Co. tires out the Bears defense and Atlanta pulls away in the fourth quarter.

Falcons 27, Bears 16.

Scenario Two (The Dream)

Bears find themselves tied 10-10 at the half, with Glennon struggling to make anything happen in the passing game. Second half starts and…wait…is that…is that Mitch Trubisky’s music?!?!?!?

Bears 27, Falcons 21

    “Step 6. Bears move up to get Mitch Trubisky in one of the most exciting moments in Bears draft history.” Jeff

    Exciting how? Like plucking out eye lashes exciting? Lol

    • DaBearsBlog

      Yea, it’s like plucking out eye lashes to make a bold move to get a man you identify as a franchise quarterback. This kind of comment is so demented and stupid to me. I bet you would have loved to have stayed at 3 and taken a safety. Because what’s really keeping the Bears from winning a title is improved safety play.

      • Corporal Clott

        Jeff, save your money…really. I’ve got nothing, I’m dead to you, never forget that mmkay?

      • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

        Do you know how many games we lost over the years because the Bears refused to address QB (prior to 2009), refused to surround the QB with talent they eventually did bring in, refused to address WR (until 2012/2013), refused to address OL effectively for a good 4yrs during the Cutler years and refused to truly and effectively address DB/S??

        Jeff, the answer would blow your fucking mind. Dozens of wins, wins that would have put us in the playoffs, kept us in the hunt, etc.

        The only thing that keeps me even partially interested in the Bears at this point is the fact that they can focus on bringing in the real pieces that keep a team competitive and poised for playoff success now that they have a QB they think they can build around. I mean, they didn’t fucking do it when we did have a quarterback from 2009 to 2016 but maybe we can bring those pieces in now.

        Or i guess Kapernick, Flacco, Wilson, Palmer and guys like that just play at such an elevated level that you barely need a competent team around them.

        Football is a team game.

        • Sahr Gborie

          Football is a team game and this team is not quite where it needs to be but it is almost there.
          Missing:O line(almost – tackle)/the defense (DB/S)/WR’s/Quality Depth
          Once we have these pieces then we will be able to compete.
          Asking Mitch to carry the team right now is crazy. You are basically asking for the same results that Cutler produced. At his stage of development Mitch would need the rest of the team to carry him and the team need a little bit more before they can do that. No harm comes from playing it safe this year and go balls out next year.

      • Sactowns#1

        No. I would have loved to have stayed at 3 and taken the better QB, Winston.

        • Corporal Clott

          Jeff mistook me for MB maybe? I have no idea why he thinks I was OK with standing pat and drafting a DB. I do take issue with trading up for Trubinsky but it really only had to do with my low confidence in the Bears getting it right. I’m definitely gonna be butt hurt if the kid is all blow and no show.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Winston? You mean Watson?

          • Johnnywad

            Hahahaha! That’s great.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Well, both may have been available. I’ll always be keeping an eye on Leonard’s career. I just can’t stop thinking about that backfield with Howard and Fournette.

  • Scharfinator

    I think we can win with Glennon at QB for this game. The unfortunate bit is that the rest of the team has to play as close to perfect as humanly possible to do that. D/ST/RB’s have got to crush it.

    • DaBearsBlog

      Bears should come out throwing the ball. Short stuff. Get the pass rushers off balance. They won’t. But they should.

      • Corporal Clott

        Don’t get all down on me Jeff, my humor is so black at this point that the dark lord himself has to light a match just to catch a glimpse of my shadow.

      • Sahr Gborie

        Lets hope short throws is Loggains game plan. If he can make Da Destroya and Barkley look good then he can work with a miracle with Giraffe Neck

        • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

          When did Barkley look good?

          • JRoenick

            Against Detroit and against SF last year. That’s about it.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Two of the worst teams in the NFL. I’d say he never looked good, and neither did Hoyer. You can’t look good if you can’t play football. SF stunned me. They signed the two wasters, then didn’t draft Trubisky or Watson. Incredible.

      • Like w the Titans?

    • chitownproud85

      We absolutely can win this game with Glennon at QB. We have zero clue what we have with Glennon because Glennon hasnt actually taken a meaningful snap for this team yet. Lets let them play a few games before we decide what this squad is/isnt. The dude certainly hasnt passed the eyeball test so far, but damn, I want him to BBQ those dirty birds.

      • Scharfinator

        That sounds fucking splendid to me.

    • Irish Sweetness

      1. Who’s got Julio Jones covered?

      2. Who’s stopping Freeman and Coleman up the middle?

  • BearDown100393

    This must be Jeff’s attempt at writing a Crying Jordan post.

    JFC Bear Down already.

  • chitownproud85

    Oi vey. Come for the comedy, stay for the comments. Bears are beating the birds this week. Let the super bowl hangover begin, and the tempered and downright shiiiiite expectations around this team elevate them. Bears 20, Falcons 17. Big ST/D play is the difference. BEAR DOWN !!!!!!!!!!

  • Bears-4-Ever

    Well I have to admit I’m a bit nervous today thinking about the Game tonight. Getting a big foil bin of Canes Chicken tonight…if you don’t know what Canes Chicken is Look it up…DAMN good shit. https://www.raisingcanes.com/

    Anyway, I am hopeful the Bears CAN win this game. I believe it can happen, only thing that worries me is of course Glennon behind center. Sure, the Falcons may be over confident thinking they can roll over the Bears and our Defense might rise up and smash’em in the teeth, BUT we have to score points…points..points..points…Defense can’t do this for us, We need Glennon to have the game of his career. PERIOD.

    BEAR DOWN!

  • leftcoastdave

    The arm-chair team management is rising to the level of almost being funny.

    Finally the recognition (implicit, not explicit) that Pace is building around the team’s strengths in a systematic manner. Unmentioned is the fact that the WR corp is not the focus of this team for good reason- the game plan is to go to proven strengths as augmented by Sims, Shaheen, Cohen and Kendall Wright out of the slot (3 targets on the 95 yard scoring drive). Safe own the time of possession game planning. Keep your D fresh, fast and aggressive. Keep the likes of Rogers and Ryan off the field. That is the team which has been systematically built.

    But still the meme lives on. Pace was brilliant in recognizing Mitchell’s talent and stepping up to draft him, but stoopid in not playing him game one.

    What record will it take this year for Pace to get credit for this rebuild?

    • King of DBB

      I’ve only said it 20 fucking times.

      8-8

      • Corporal Clott

        Wow, going out on a limb there. Lol

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        has it been 20? I can only remember 16.

    • DaBearsBlog

      Everybody is so eager to praise Pace for a rebuild that has yielded no results. When they win games, I’ll genuflect.

      • leftcoastdave

        Who is everybody?

        I have yet to see the yapping blog writers say one good thing about Pace other than criticize his handling of Mitchell. The vast majority of “pundits” proclaim the stoopidity (yes, I like to spell it that way for emphasis) of management for not starting Mitchell and predicting a sub 6 win season.

        Who exactly is so eager to praise Pace other than me and one or two others posting on this site?

        • Bender McLugh

          In Pace we trust. Solidarity, brother.

        • Johnnywad

          Pace is doing a really nice job.

          There is no way to turn the dumpster fire he inherited into a contender in two seasons. Who the hell doesn’t know that?

          This team will show much promise this year. One more draft, a couple of FA acquisitions, and we’re good to go. And he hasn’t even been able to pick his own coach yet.

          This blog is populated by some pretty smart dudes. It’s why I stay here instead of wandering into some others. I do not understand how the improvements made to the current roster aren’t met with at least a quiet golf clap. It’s crazy.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis
          • Irish Sweetness

            Because Johnny, some of us are “Let’s see it.”

            This is year 3. Ditka won a Super Bowl. We may struggle to beat .500. What then?
            Three years is what I give any manager, but that’s it.

          • Johnnywad

            Really? So context is of no consequence?

            Just demanding to “See it” is stupid when we all know they’re rebuilding. You’re asking to see the roof while Pace is building the walls. The previous decade of draft history makes a two season turn around impossible. A record number of players on IR makes a two season turn around impossible. Playing your third string quarterback makes a two season turn around impossible.

            If you don’t like the guy that’s given you an entirely new roster in just a couple years that includes Howard, Whitehair, Sitton, Floyd, Freeman, Hicks, Goldman, and a whole bunch of other young guys that appear to be really good like Cohen, Jackson, Robertson Harris, Bullard, and what appears to be a QB with true potential in Trubisky, then I’m at a loss.

            We have a front seven that appears to be legit and a completely retooled DB corps on the cheap.

            We have a run game that stands to be among the best in the league.

            The guy hired coordinators in Fangio and Gase that have done much with little. So much so that Gase is already gone.

            What do you want? The guy needs time.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Things Pace may have done right:

          1. Mitchell. (I am happy to be Michael Burton’s biggest fan TBH).

          Things which are not fine until proven otherwise:

          2. The LB corps.

          3. The DB corps. I do not believe in Demps. Jackson might be good. Hall is gone. Amos is …okay. Prince’s ankle? Who knows? Marcus Cooper? Who knows?

          4. Let’s see that OL with an injury or two. Let’s see how quickly the QB crumbles under that pressure and the rushing game goes day day. Let’s see them apples.

          5. WR corps. We have a bunch of guys on second chances. No true #1 or even close. Pulling ofr all of them, but let’s see. Can you ever remember a crew of WRs that had no names, but went on to do great things?

          I can see Mitchell being on the money, and balls-they-are-a-bouncin’ off receivers’ hands.

      • BearDown100393

        Wow all ready to pull the plug on Pacebot. Incredible. And exactly who within the Bears hierarchy is qualified to hire a new GM…….

        • ButtonShoes

          Who is qualified? No one. The only hope for this team is the McCaskeys selling it. And they need to be hit with an ongoing media barrage every day, non-stop, telling them that everyone within the city and the surrounding suburbs wants nothing less.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            it’s cute how you think the McCaskeys will sell due to public pressure.

          • Irish Sweetness

          • ButtonShoes

            Maybe it’s wishful thinking. In fact, no maybe about it: it’s definitely wishful thinking on my part. But what else can I hope for when that’s what I think will fix the team?

        • Irish Sweetness

          Not Ted Chode-guzzler Phillips, that’s fer damn sure.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Exactly. Mitchell hasn’t even worked out yet. He hasn’t thrown one pass. And if you have the QB but a team of dog-link around you ….

    You paid 10x in December when they were eliminated? I call shenanigans. Or maybe this was 20 years ago when that wouldn’t be a min of $800 for end zone nose bleeders.

    I would have to look at Ticketmaster but my guess is that those would be $350 club tickets in the end zone, which is outrageous at a Tim of year when the weather doesn’t make having a heated interior concession space really nice

  • I say 20-16 Falcons. Both teams struggle to move the ball, but the Falcons can finish 2 drives with TD, while the Bears keep settling for FG.

    • Corporal Clott

    Glennon will pleasantly suprise da blog and put together a couple td drives with the help of his line and backs. The D comes out looking like animals and are all over Ryan, 4 sacks and two turnovers.

        The 20 years of no corporate income tax they offer these employers tends to be highly enticing. I didn’t say Rahm would win but I expect his offer to be competitive.

        I really like Austin because it is tech and liberal, but Indy sits at a FedEx distribution hub, is affordable even without giving away massive breaks, which they will probably do anyway.

  • King of DBB

    Vegas PD write Rodger Dodger a letter regarding Michael Bennett:

    On behalf of the rank and file members of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, I request that you conduct an investigation, and take appropriate action, into Michael Bennett’s obvious false allegations against our officers. While the NFL may condone Bennett’s disrespect for our American Flag, and everything it symbolizes, we hope the League will not ignore Bennett’s false accusations against our police officers.

    As you may know, Michael Bennett posted a Twitter message regarding his interaction with our officers. Bennett wrote ‘Las Vegas police officers singled me out and pointed their guns at me for doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time.’ Bennett’s message included additional comments, which we believe are false and defamatory.

    We believe that a fair investigation will establish that our officers responded to one of the most dangerous calls a law enforcement officers can be assigned — an active shooter firing rounds in a crowded casino. As our uniformed officers entered the casino, they observed Bennett hiding behind a slot machine. Another individual in the casino indicated to officers they suspected Bennett was carrying a weapon. When officers turned towards Bennett, he refused to stop when asked to halt and instead bolted out of the casino, leaped over four (4) foot barrier wall while being commanded to halt, and instead actively hid from officers as he crouched close to the wall on the sidewalk.

    I am sure that your attorney will tell you, our officers had reasonable suspicion, which is the constitutional standard, to detain Bennett until they could determine whether he was involved in the shooting. Our officers, who are both minorities, had the legal right, and obligation, to detain Bennett based upon the nature of the call and Bennett’s unusual and suspicious actions. Our officers did not detain Bennett because he was ‘a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time.’

    Michael Bennett’s claim that our officers are racist is false and offensive to the men and women of law enforcement. We hope you will take appropriate action against Michael Bennett up to and including suspension. I am available to meet with you and will provide any other information you deem necessary.

    So I’m guessing the LVPD will not be settling any civil suit that gets filed.

    FF Question:

    I got both Lacy and AP on my team, and trying to figure out which I should play in my flex position. AP is no longer “the guy” and carries will be limited however New Orleans is playing Minnesota, so my guess is he will want some revenge. Lacy on the other hand is probably the starter for Seattle, but their run game has been awful since Lynch left, but they are playing against GB so he may have the same motivation as AP. Anyone want to give an opinion? FYI- Standard scoring league.

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        the feeling of satisfaction knowing you have helped me kick my best friends ass in fantasy this week.

        • Corporal Clott

          My advice is to do the opposite of whatever your gut tells you to do.

    • I think the Saints will give AP his shot at revenge if they’re near the goaline, so I feel like he’s good for a TD + maybe 50yds

      It’s a safer floor cuz we really don’t know what the SEA run game will be.

      But if you need more points, Fat Eddie is prolly the gamble, albeit, it’s bigger risk IMO.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Ingram gets those looks. They just drafted Kamara for the passing game. I don’t see how AP is a fantasy option.

        Fucker should be in prison anyway.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Honestly? Cut both. Neither is The Guy on their team, and stock up on guys like Wendall Smallwood or Latavius Murray, who might end up as the cow bell backs. Amendola can still be had.

  • That Guy

    Calvin Pryor is available. I can remember people talking him up for the Bears pick in 2014. Is he worth a flier?

    • BearDown100393

      Only if he trades shots with McPhee.

    • Corporal Clott

      Fack that guy! Hee hee

    • AlbertInTucson

      He was cut after a fight in practice.

      • Corporal Clott

        A bleeder eh?

  • BearDown100393

    If Brady works really hard, one day he might almost reach the talents of Mitch Trubisky.

  • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

    Brady just had 9 seconds to throw. That’s more than 7 individual drop backs added together for Cutler in 2010.

    • Corporal Clott

      Fack Brady! He’s such a pussy!

  • EnderWiggin

    Collinsworthless just said that one person can’t call for a fair catch while another person catches it. He doesn’t remember this shit ~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXxO6f5YSBk

    • AlbertInTucson

      If one guys signals fair catch, another guy cannot then catch the ball and run with it.

      The Knox return vs the Packers was called back on a (phantom) holding call.

  • willbest

    The way Smith plays, I feel like mahomes was a waste of resources. It’s one thing to BPA, but another to move up ten spots for him

    • It’s not about the reg season for the Chiefs.
      If Alex Smith returns to his checkdown ways in the playoffs, they’ll lose again.
      Then, it’s just about whether Mahomes is ready or not next yr

  • KC getting too cute on goaline. At the 1. RUN THE BALL.

    • willbest

      Especially considering, mccourty, chung, gilmore, and butler is one of the best DB cores in the league

      • And especially when I started Hunt in my flex!
        Though he got a TD already, so mission accomplished.

        • willbest

          Minus 2 for the fumble

    Eric Berry makes me sad the KC GM isn’t a moron

  • Aren’t Chiefs supposed to have a good D? I don’t understand 3 man rush giving Brady 10 seconds to kill em.

    Maybe they come out more aggressive in the 2nd half.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Fangio understands it. Somehow. Put the offense under absolutely no pressure … and sit back and let them have at you.

  • Some things in the NFL I will never get.

    Throwing it short of the 1st down marker is one of them.

  • Irish Sweetness

    “Trubisky struggles in his two drives with the first team.”

    And that, Senor Escobar, is the only relevant experience he’s had, hence the caution. The kid will be fine.

    Question for the blog: If we have the first pick in the 2018 draft …. what would you do? Let’s suppose Mitch works out. Do you still take Darnold .. or try and trade down?

  • And KC gave Walrus MORE power by running out the GM, right?

  • AlbertInTucson

    Speaking of no talent, here’s Miley Cyrus.

  • I was debating between drafting Hunt or Cooks.
    Hunt looks good, and naturally, Walrus will run all kinds of gimmicky shit to look smart instead of ride Hunt.

    Cooks should do ok, but fuck the Queens.

    Hunt will be better than Fournette this yr.

    How you like them apples, Irish

    • Irish Sweetness

      Cooks will get cucked by Latavius, both at the Goal-line and elsewhere. Mixon might be a better draft than Cooks.

  • AlbertInTucson

    You owe BIG, Kelce.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Tom Brady is better than Joe Montana, really?

        He’s normally check down Charlie

        • Irish Sweetness

          IKR! 4 TDs!! Against Bellifat!

  • And right on que, Hunt

  • AlbertInTucson

    A LOT of time for Mr. Smith on that toss.

  • I think Hunt is now the leading receiver of the game.

    • Irish Sweetness

      T. Hill. 124 yards

      • I was debating between T Hill or Garcon in the draft.

        Went with Garcon. Maybe not a good choice

        • Irish Sweetness

          Have Ty Hill and Ty Montgomery might have been a thing in PPR leagues.

  • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

    Beautiful pitch and catch by Smith and Hunt.

      That looked like the Bears trying to make fourth and short.

  • AlbertInTucson

    I don’t THINK so.

  • AlbertInTucson

    A”turnover on downs” should go down as a turnover.

  • No more penalties KC. Feed Hunt. Keep Brady on bench

    • Irish Sweetness

      That looks like ‘KFC’ … damn …

    • AlbertInTucson

      Zebras can still rescue NE.

      • Corporal Clott

        No doubt, don’t remind me Al. I was actually thinking KC could win this game until you said that.

    Edit: Fixed my shit grammar

    • That Guy

      Getting injured doesn’t mean he would have gotten injured the same way in game 1 as a Bear.

      Or do you believe his ankle had some congenital weakness missed by all sorts of team doctors, and it waited until the 7th year of his career to suddenly give way?

      • Scharfinator

        I agree, it doesn’t necessarily mean that.

        But it happened. People break down, especially in football. He’s fought back against cancer and recovered from chemo. His body has suffered more than most other players.

    Just watched episode 3 of Ozark. Top, top show. Breaking Bad-level. It ended with this rather ‘phat’ ditty , which in turn comes with a nice vid. DJ Shadow.

      yeah it’s really good, love the story

    New “fag cam” can tell if you are a libtard queer or a racist Trumpie from over 100 yards away.

    Waffle can do this w/o technology at 200 yards.

      Scientific proof that gayface exists. Please tell me they pointed it at Lindsey Graham.

    • Corporal Clott

      Hahaha.

    These pricks sold you down the river and then sold their options before there was accountability for it.

      They will get the Martha Stewart treatment.

      but they didn’t know, ya know? I mean, it’s all so very innocent

    Bullard’s butt bad, so sad.

    Biggest muscle in your body, that glute. If he is no go, that hurts against the run but we will see much more of RRH who has been getting into the backfield with regularity.

    Let me predict an RRH sack, the second of the day after Floyd gets the first, Goldman the third.

    • Bender McLugh

      that would be lovely

    Love it:

    Ryan Pace’s 2017 draft class was ridiculed and laughed at before the new players even arrived in Lake Forest.
    From talking heads on TV to anonymous executives and scouts in various reports, the criticism was ruthless.
    “[Pace] just got fired with this draft,” an unnamed executive from an unnamed team told Bleacher Report on April 30.

      His TE and his RB look like promising prospects. Mitch is coming along nicely too.

    Well Holee Crap! If KC can stomp New England in their own House…The BEARS CAN BEAT THE FALCONS. Perhaps the Football gods are shifting…BEAR DOWN!!!!

    P.S. PLAY DA KID!

    Bears = 27
    Falcons = 21

    • Corporal Clott

      Welcome back football. Welcome back.

  • AlbertInTucson

    KC won the toss.

    Chose to defer, even IN Foxboro.

    Patriots marched their opening drive for a TD.

    But, the KC got what they wanted. Last score of the 1st half and 1 one in the second half.

    Back to back possessions in the middle of the game trumps the getting the first possession.

      They are lucky that Hunt has a short memory

      • willbest

        Think about it, it was his first fumble since high school, and it happened in the first game of his NFL career. A game he wasn’t even supposed to be starting.

  • willbest

    Shockingly.

    Goodell replied: “One thing I do as a commissioner is, I don’t make
    those decisions. I’m not a football expert.” The commissioner added that
    he’s a huge fan of the game, but he’s not a “football person.”

      “he’s a huge fan of the game, but he’s not a “football person.”

      Sounds strikingly like Bears Ownership.

    • Tortured Bear fan

      it was Teddy personifying Goodell..

  • Irish Sweetness

    Kareem was 86th pick of the draft. Anyone keep Shaheen?
