Bears Beat Steelers Without The Use of A Quarterback: Rapid Fire

| September 25th, 2017

The Bears won a game they had no business winning without the use of a quarterback. Their defense and rushing attack were so good they could have beaten any team in the league yesterday. Their quarterback? Non-existent. More thoughts:

  • There’s never been a play in league history like Marcus Cooper’s failure to complete a return touchdown at the end of the half. He wasn’t showing off. He wasn’t celebrating. He just…stopped. Cooper claiming he thought he was in the end zone is insane. Just keep running. Why would a player EVER stop until he’s through the back of the end zone? This had the potential to join Marion Barber running out of bounds and staring at a Rodgers fumbled football as one of the worst modern Bears moments. But they won…
  • I can’t remember a game where the Bears ran the ball like they did yesterday. The Steelers knew the run was coming and the Bears didn’t care. Right down their throat over and over, including an overtime win without a pass thrown. That’s historic stuff. 6 yards a carry for Howard. 6.5 yards a carry for Cohen.
  • And if this ends up being a memorable Bears season, we should all remember Jordan Howard leaving everything on the field yesterday. With his shoulder deteriorating by the second, Howard refused to be sidelines. It was movie plot stuff.
  • Mike Glennon is a terrible football player. What’s most frustrating is that he occasionally shows he’s capable of throwing the ball down the field. He just refuses, unabashedly, to do so. Take that back. What’s most frustrating is his complete inability to process what’s happening on the football field.

  • Shame about the Grasu injury. He was exploding off the ball before he got hurt. But an injury to the right hand is a brutal one for a center.
  • Prince Amukamara and Kyle Fuller both making plays was nice to see.
  • The Bears looked like they were completely unable to cover the shallow cross from Pittsburgh and then Pittsburgh stopped going to it. Two or three times in the fourth quarterback Roethlisberger had the route wide open and chose to throw bombs over the top.
  • I still don’t think Tarik Cohen stepped out of bounds.
  • I still don’t think Marcus Cooper committed a hold in the end zone.
  • I still don’t think there’s any level of poor play that would lead to John Fox benching Mike Glennon.
  • Unsung play of the game? Bobby Massie jumping on the Tarik Cohen fumble in the fourth quarter.
  • Still can’t rationalize how Fox and Fangio are using Leonard Floyd in this defense. I get that the kid is versatile. But they are getting so little pass rush off the edge and their best edge rusher is out there covering wide receivers? I don’t know what the answer is but the answer can’t be what they’re doing.
  • Net positive for Pat O’Donnell, who is showing way more pop in the punt game.
  • I just don’t see how anybody is going to run the ball successfully on the Bears. Especially at Soldier Field.
  • Again. Overtime. Four plays. Four carries. 1 yard. 36 yards. 18 yards. 19 yards. Touchdown. That is big boy football.

Short week. And kids, the Bears are better than the Packers. Better on defense. Better at the offensive line. Infinitely better in the run game. However, they have one of the best quarterbacks in the league and the Bears refuse to bench the league’s worst starting quarterback. (By the way, that’s what Glennon is right now.)

But the Bears now have an opportunity to get through their tough first four at 2-2. And they have a chance for a season.

    First win of the season. WooHoo!!! Howards shoulder injury scares me. I would not be surprised if he is out a while.

    • Irish Sweetness

      This is why we need a replacement back for him – not a change-up, a replacement, a guy to do what he does. That’s a really nasty 1-2 we have for defenses. J-How wears them down, Cohen wears them out.

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    Players kneeling, a QB that can’t throw, a Defense shutting things down, a running game racking up yards, John Fox as a coach. This must be some Twilight Zone type alternate reality. We are the 2011 Tebow Broncos. Those players aren’t protesting they are Tebowing! It all makes sense now.

    • Sahr Gborie

      LoL…hard to argue with your assessment

      • ThompsonWay

        We would be better with Tebow….

        • Scharfinator

          Completely.

          EVEN MORE BETTERER WITH TRUBISKY

  • Cuck Cooper

    “Why would a player EVER stop until he’s through the back of the end zone?” Jeff

    You have said it. WWFL!

    • BearDown100393

      Not the first time. Won’t be the last. Welcome to the NFL.

    • willbest

      And now we know why the lambeau leap was invented

  • Johnnywad

    I think the Bears are better than the Packers WITH Glennon. I also think that game is his last stand. This next game closes the book on the Glennon era.

    Pace has done a nice job rebuilding the team. It’s not done by any stretch. They’re most definitely more talented, but still thin. Depth will come. That said, Trubisky will have had a month of real NFL life after this week. No way he plays this week, but I’ll be pretty damn surprised if he doesn’t the week after. They cannot continue to ignore the fact that the division is wide open, and the team has a chance to win it. They’ll beat the Packers on the ground, Glennon will get his 85 passing yards, and off we go.

    • Sahr Gborie

      I think you meant to say, “the Bears are better than the Packers IN SPITE OF Glennon”.

      • SC Dave

        No, he wrote what he meant.

    • BearDown100393

      The Packers minus the quarterback are a dumpster on fire.

    • SC Dave

      Not trying to defend Glennon, but Wheaton dropped two, Sims one, Miller one, and I don’t recall a single case where a receiver helped out by making a good catch all day.

      Maybe Miller’s catch, but a professional receiver should catch that ball every time.

      There were easily 85 yards in drops.

      But what is amazing is how *scared* Glennon is to throw the ball downfield. Too many seven yard throws on 3rd and 13.

      • BearDown100393

        Do the receivers get the quarterback they deserve or does the quarterback get the receivers he deserves? Drops & Giraffes. Mitch sits.

        • SC Dave

          We won’t know until Mitch plays – you’re definitely right on that. And I think johnny is probably right on Mitch starting week after next. BUT if the Bears win, and Glennon does not suck (I know, not terribly likely), then the long-necked one starts against Minnesota.

      • The broadcaster at the start of the game relayed that the Bears lead the league in drops.

        Pretty sure still do.

        So while Glennon is not exactly sterling, the receivers aren’t helping the cause either.

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          I think 49ers are leading. Jax is close also. either way we all suck.

          • willbest

            Jags are 2-1.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            at catching.

      • Irish Sweetness

        That messes with the narrative Dave. Those drops get caught and he’s up over 70% with an ass-kicking of the Steelers to his name.

        Sure would be nice to see that running game with Trubs off the back of it and an actual defense.

        You can keep the safeties though.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      If this is Glennon’s last stand, I am hoping he takes a knee.

  • SC Dave

    “And if this ends up being a memorable Bears season, we should all remember Jordan Howard leaving everything on the field yesterday. With his shoulder deteriorating by the second, Howard refused to be sidelines. It was movie plot stuff.”

    I wrote before that this kid wants to be Walter Payton. More evidence of that desire.

    • BearDown100393

      The kid does not have to be Walter Payton. He is damn good at being Jordan Howard.

      • SC Dave

        Agreed. But I think he’s set his bar pretty high.

        • BearDown100393

          Even better.

  • BearDown100393

    Dear George,

    Replace the jugs machines over at Halas.

    Apparently the ones you already have are defective.

    Regards,

    Beardown

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      maybe it’s not the jugs machine, maybe it is the current QB throws an awful ball that is hard to catch.

      • BearDown100393

        Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe a little of both?

        Either way, George can afford it.

      • Some of them are a lil off target. But that bomb to Wheaton and that throw to Sims where right on. Think there was another between the #s. Miller had an uncharacteristic easy one drop too.

        All throws are gonna be a smidgen off.

        As a receiver you’re always taught, “hits your hands, it should be catch”

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          somehow even though Glennon is right handed he throws the ball with a left handed spin.

  • chitownproud85

    Definitely agree withe the Lenny Floyd thing. Without a doubt he was drafted to be a difference making pass rusher. I’m lazy – anyone have the stats on how often he rushed vs dropped back yesterday? The season so far? Either hes invisible because hes not doing well or hes invisible because hes doing VERY well. I have no clue which it is.

    • I saw this yesterday. So far he’s dropping back ~14% of the time and rushing the other 86%. Last year those splits were 11/89.

      He had 37 rushes yesterday and the only pressure he recorded per PFF was the one where he came unblocked up the middle and ran right by Ben without touching him.

      I think part of the problem is he’s playing too much. He played all but 2 snaps yesterday and all but 4 snaps against ATL. He sat some against TB (played about 3/4 of the snaps), likely because of the blowout.

      I think the ideal amount for him to be playing is about 3/4 snaps (probably less when it’s 90° out like yesterday). That will make him more effective because he’ll have more energy.

      • Scharfinator

        He’s seemed to be a non-factor so far, so a change up to help him would be good.

        • SC Dave

          Exactly. When what you are doing ain’t working, try something else.

          • Is it not working though?

            Falcons and Steelers are both high powered Os that score 30+ regularly.

            Limiting both and giving this anemic O a chance to win is what we want, right?

            Against the bucs it was a jailbreak due to all the TOs.

          • Scharfinator

            Fair question. He may be doing the less glamorous work right now.

            My only counter is… playmakers make plays.

          • The thing is, look at our other options at covering.

            Timu/Amos

            It’s like when the Puke moved Matthews to ILB out of necessity.

            The Chiefs employed the same strategy of clogging up all the short to medium pass lanes vs Brady.

            In some ways it worked because it tempted Roth to go deep instead, and although he almost connected, he never did which put them in unfavorable 3rd downs.

            Perhaps not sexy, but effective.

        • Irish Sweetness

          As his asshole DC doesn’t get football, it makes sense we’re not seeing him.

          Might as well trade him. What’s the point of having a pass rusher you don’t rush?

      • chitownproud85

        Thank you!

      • I don’t think Fangio will because he won’t trust Timu or Amos in pass coverage. Bet he prefers Floyd’s length and speed to cover those RBs and TEs

        (so much so he even trusts him covering WRs).

        I think this is more a function of playing the high powered Falcons and Steelers.

        It seems like Fangio is content rushing 4 or even 3 and clogging those short-intermediate passing zones with Floyd and Co.

        • Irish Sweetness

          He is content, and he’s dead wrong.

  • SC Dave

    “What’s most frustrating is that he [Glennon] occasionally shows he’s capable of throwing the ball down the field. He just refuses, unabashedly, to do so. Take that back. What’s most frustrating is his complete inability to process what’s happening on the football field.”

    Sans the “take that back”, this is the fairest, and IMO most accurate assessment of Mike Glennon that Jeff has put out there. Glennon is just so scared.

    One would hope to see improvement in his understanding of relative motion and spacing of bodies on the field, but it does not appear to be happening. That, and the guy just seems a bit short on raw physical coordination to be playing in the NFL.

    • Bender McLugh

      it’s like he has to over-achieve just to make the basic decisions/throws.

      • SC Dave

        Interesting way of putting it. Cant say I disagree.

        Spmetimes, even getting to tje handoff point in time.

  • SC Dave

    “Again. Overtime. Four plays. Four carries. 1 yard. 36 yards. 18 yards. 19 yards. Touchdown. That is big boy football.”

    This. Whatever happened on the left side of the line, I want more. Howard had two GIANT openings at the line of scrimmage, and when that truck starts moving, it does not slow easily.

    • Bears found their best success running to left side last year, especially off tackle/end runs.

      • So far this year, that trend has continued (albeit small sample size alert). 15 runs off left end, 2nd in the NFL at 10.5 yards per carry. 10 runs off left tackle, 6th in NFL at 6 yards per carry.

        On the right side, they’re at 5.2 ypc off tackle (8th in NFL) and 2.4 ypc off right end (28th in NFL).

        How’s this for ugly? On 6 runs right up the middle, they’re last in the NFL averaging -0.17 yards per carry (so 6 carries for -1 yard in those situations).

        • SC Dave

          Could use a little improvement there for sure.

        • That Guy

          How much of that up the middle problem has to do with how the interior hasn’t had a consistent personnel grouping yet? Have the same 3 guys played LG-C-RG for more than 2 quarters in a row?

      • Irish Sweetness

        And that was the opposite side to Long.

    • I rewatched the game specifically paying attention to the Oline.

      Sowell sealed off the left side on big runs.

      On that OT Howard run, Sowell and Shaheen provided the big blocks initially, with Thompson at the 2nd level.

      On that Cohen run, It was Bellamy who drove his guy to the dirt as Cohen reversed and bounced it back outside.

      It wasn’t all good. On one play Sowell got bulled back to the QB and gave up a sack.

      Maybe Sowell is better at runblocking than passblocking but he looks big and physical.

      (Also, if anyone wants to change their FF name to Sowell Glow, feel free!)

  • SC Dave

    So, it is now Packer Week.

    Given that I have little confidence in the Bears’ medical/training staff and their ability to help Howard get ready by Thursday night, I’m thinking that Bennie Cunningham may end up being a very important player. We may end up with he and Tarik carrying the load.

    While I’d love Howard to be ready and I’m sure he’ll want to play, maybe light or no action before the 9 October Monday night game would be best for the season overall.

  • That Guy

    Can someone do a count of how many times Glennon threw the ball to a receiver short of the first down? I think I saw only one or maybe two attempts.

    Then compare Glennon’s % with the NFL average. I would bet Captain Checkdown is among the lowest in the past 20 years.

    • SC Dave

      It would not surprise me at all.

    • willbest

      It doesn’t help things that the two times a game that he bothers to go down field the WRs are so surprised that they drop the ball

  • leftcoastdave

    “Thunder and lightning.” Tarik on the one-two punch Howard.

    Pace deserves credit for the rebuild, done right.

    Build the front 7’s.

    Unrein is playing solid football and RRH still learning. The D front is top five.

    9-7.

    • Irish Sweetness

      ???
      He didn’t draft an O-lineman! Our safeties are shit. Cooper is a gombeen.

      He gets credit when the Lombardi is in the case.

  • leftcoastdave

    BTW- Tarik shouted out love to Bellamy’s block which sprung him loose on that TD called back.

    • SC Dave

      He also mentioned having Jordan beating up the linebackers and safeties all game and how the Steeler D was “gassed” in OT.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      he is not a very good team mate. Willing to stand apart from the rest of his team, seems very selfish to me.

      • willbest

        It would be selfish of his teammates to not let him stand for the flag considering he was an army ranger. The compromise was obviously that he participated from the tunnel rather than from the sidelines.

        • leftcoastdave

          He should have walked out to be the only player on the Steelers sidelines saluting the flag.

          I wonder how many lefties would have supported that move?

          • CanadaBear

            Enough with this lefty bullshit. Black men are protesting the treatment black people receive from the police. That’s not left or right. It’s racism.

          • leftcoastdave

            The depolicing post blm riot is doing wonders for black murder rates. More blacks were killed by other blacks last year as a result of BLM than were killed by police. But hey it makes you feel better knowing that at least it isn’t racist. Of course a number of these police forces have been lead by black men with lots of black cops doing the killing. What is that called? They must all be self hating.

            I mean it couldn’t be that black culture encourages escalating violence and a healthy disrespect for authority. Interesting that Hispanics don’t seem to have the same problems with the police.

            Oh and you don’t hear from the black moms that hate BLM and have to suffer the consequences of it.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            That is very short sighted observation concerning Hispanics.

            Thank you. Your article proves my point.

            112 hispanics killed out of 715 is 15% below their 18% of population. As for why they are stopped for traffic violations 23% of the time, which is not excessively more than their 18% of the population, it couldn’t be because you know their propensity to drink and drive?

            The upshot about traffic fatalities is that trees aren’t racist, that we know of anyway.

            So when you look at the data and you see that 1.6% of Whites, 1.8% of blacks but 4.7% of Hispanics die in motor vehicle accidents, you have a pretty good inclination as to why Hispanics might be getting pulled over more than other groups. In fact, the real question should be why aren’t Hispanics being pulled over more often.

            you can never generalize people. So that’s sort of the sentiment we have

    On the Floyd discussion of playing in coverage, anyone else see the Bears D get toasted to Floyd’s side on a screen yesterday? The one I remember was a third and very long which converted for a first down with Floyd completely out of the play and ready to dance with Ben.
    Perhaps that accounts for more drops back into coverage?

  • CanadaBear

    Big surprise. While looking at the national sports pages recapping the Sunday games, the only mention of the Bears is Cooper’s gaffe.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      I feel for Cooper’s wife, my guess is he is a little premature in other areas of his life too.

    • willbest

      But isn’t that the most interesting thing about the game if you are neither a bears or Steelers fan?

      • CanadaBear

        I would think 220 yds rushing might garner a mention.

            Pretty sure Cooper won’t do that again (probably will never have that chance again). He never really has explained why he slowed to a crawl. I guess there is no explanation that’s going to give him any cover.

          • willbest

            It doesn’t even make sense. It didn’t seem celebratory. He wasn’t high stepping or strutting, or turn to moonwalk in. He just let up. And it wasn’t like he was limping like he pulled a muscle. He might have honestly thought he was in the end zone. Does he have asthma or something? Did he forget to breathe the entire way down the field?

      Well if Jordan Howard carried the rock with TWO damaged arms, that might garner a wee more attention.

  • willbest

    I am not sold on this being a good team missing a QB. It is absolutely missing a QB. The ST and D had a good game at the same time. Once is chance and all that. Lets see it again. Glennon isn’t going to win you games. Whats worse is I was watching this game wondering how he was going to fuck it up. It doesn’t matter how bad Trubisky is, he isn’t going to be worse than that.

    So the Bears win, and we don’t even get 6 days to enjoy it. And this game is more than other Bears-GB games. Its the game for the lead of the all time record. The last time the Packer’s held the lead in this series was 1933.

    • Sahr Gborie

      Watching him get sacked yesterday was so painful because
      1. He just has no clue what’s going on around him
      2. He goes to the ground like a Cali red wood…no resistance
      3. His presence is the main reason MT is not playing right now

      Damn you Giraffe. I hope he doesn’t faak up cost and us the lead.

      We absolutely are a team just learning to be good is more like it. With competent…not good…but competent QB play we could sneak into the playoffs.

    • BearDown100393

          Ok, you win.

  • wreckinball

    Glennon is just bad. If they are going to be very run heavy anyways let Mitch play. If he catches consecutive shot gun snaps and throws two consecutive passes that are not nearly or actually intercepted we are already ahead.

      Fox is not changing quarterbacks after a win and a short week with Green Bay on deck.

      • willbest

        Well Fox isn’t a strategist, otherwise that is exactly what he would do.

        You open up with Trubisky against GB, they have no tape on him and the following week you have Minny with 10 days of prep. You could be 2-0 in your division, before other teams start to figure Trubisky out.

        Plus for the first 3 weeks of the season you could be installing the GB game plan in Trubisky, to give him a head start.

  • Malice Halice

    Slept thru our 1st win. I’ve come to da conclusion dat John Fox made a aggreement that if he benches Gomer Pile his job is inexplicably over. His career in Chicago should b extinguished regardless. The more I see Gomer the more I loathe for Kaep.

          • CanadaBear

            When I was young I used to joke that they paid me so well to ruin my social life. Once I got into my 40’s it changed to they paid me so well to ruin my health. It’s a fucker. I loved it when I was young and the money is great. Once I was in my 40’s it was a mofo and only got worse. Oh well, it was my choice and again, the money was good.

          • SC Dave

            The part about it being your choice says it all.

            And our generation seems to better understand that the consequences of those choices are ours to bear, instead of getting a lawyer to make everyone else pay for them.

            Does that just make us suckers?

          • CanadaBear

            What am I going to use for evidence? I retired at a decent age with a nice house and a much younger bride? I’ll give the young people credit. They are at least aware of the studies and the effects. Most of them don’t even consider it. Good on ’em.

            When I was young the hours didn’t physically bother me at all. All the old guys told me to get out when I was young but who listens. After you’ve made good money for a while you live up to it and get used to it. Going back financially wasn’t too appealing. It only gets worse as you get older.

    A win is a win. Enjoy it.

  • BerwynBomber

    Glennon processes and moves very slow, and the game (for him) move very fast. It is a crippling combination.

    Agree that we are an overall better team than the Cheese but the huge difference is Rodgers. Then again (and this statement is by no means meant as a defense of Glennon), that was often a huge difference even when we had a competent NFL starting QB for nearly a decade.

    Rodgers, btw, despite yesterday’s late game heroics, isn’t playing that well. (By Rodgers’ standards.) But that seems his M.O. in recent years — start slow, finish strong.

    Settting aside Glennon (no small thing), I’d like our chances if Howard can play.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      I would argue that Rodgers M.O. is more — start slow, play Bears and get on track, finish strong.

    • Sahr Gborie

      this team is better than what cutty had:
      1. cutty was a liability just like glennon is but for different reasons
      2. this team is better because it is not asking the qb to win the game. cutty was asked to win games. glennon just needs to not faak up
      3. lack and company are the only place cuttys teams are better than MT’s teams

      • willbest

        I would take a 2010 or 2011 Bears team (pre-Cutler injury) over this one. I might even take the 2012 Bears team over this one.

        • BerwynBomber

          ’13 might be better too. Yes, they were a sieve on D but they were a league best O.

    • Johnnywad

      He’s getting sacked at an alarming rate if you’re a Packers fan. And suddenly he’s throwing the ball to the other team.

      Our front seven should fair quite well against him. And the Pack will have no answer for the Bears’ ground game. I think they’ll be able to run all over them with Cohen and Cunningham if Howard can’t go. The Bears have a pretty fair shot at a win here, but I wouldn’t bet any money on it. That guy just owns the Bears.

      • The initial pass rush doesn’t worry me.

        I just hope they do it while keeping contain. Vadgers damages most when sprinting outside the pocket.

        I also hope the Bears are practicing hard counts all week.

        We’re going to have to play a very intense but patient and disciplined game, esp on D.

      • SC Dave

        He certainly owned us when cutler was in.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Will we sack him though? I’ll bet Vic Vagina dials it back for no good reason.

  • beninnorcal

    Did Cooper ever explain what in the actual fuck he was doing on that blocked fg return?
    Also, Glennon really wasn’t that bad, just kidding, he was actually terrible. The saddest play was when he attempted to scramble for a first, which was there for the taking, dude looks like he’s running in quicksand. Stopped short, sad.

    • He said he thought he already crossed the goal line, which was BS.

      It’s not as if he’s gonna admit he was showboating and that it should’ve cost them the game.

      • Bender McLugh

        I didn’t see him “show boat” though, it really did look like he was lost as to where he was on the field, and that to me is actually worse.

        • Marcus Cooper’s Last Coach

          This is not the first time Marcus has “forgotten” where the goal line was.

  • beninnorcal

    Also, missed the end of Pack-Bungles because of a flight. How did the Bungles blow it?

    • willbest

      Supposedly that was Aaron Rodgers first win in over time. He was previously 0-7. And that also completed Rodgers stamp collection. As in The Bengals were the only team other than the Packers he hadn’t ever beaten. So the game had a lot of meaning to him personally.

      • In those 7 games, he had attempted a total of 6 passes. Basically, most of the time they lost the coin toss and he never got to touch the ball because GB’s defense always sucks.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Except for the time the Cardinals strip-sacked him for the game winning TD.

        • willbest

          That is some unlucky coin flipping, but a small enough sample size to not be out of balance with the universe.

    • CanadaBear

      Left a guy named Geronimo Allison wide open way down the field. Next play they ran the ball to the center of the field and followed with a short FG.

      • BearDown100393

        It was a free play. Bengals were offside off the snap.

      Amos isn’t good in coverage, but he won’t have to do that as much now that he’s playing next to an actual coverage S for the first time in his career.

          Amos needs to target Rodgers then.

          • willbest

            I don’t know what you want. We picked up Eddie Jackson and so far the kid is holding his own against the 2nd round talent on the stat line.

            He has 11 tackles and 1 assist.

            The 2nd round safeties are:

            Des King has 7 tackles, 1 assist, 1 PD through 3 games. Also a couple returns.

            Budda Baker has 2 tackles though 2 games. Which isn’t very inspiring.

            Marcus Maye has 10 tackles, 4 assist for the Jets, 3 games

            Marcus Williams has 6 tackles, 5 assist, 1 PD, and an INT for the Saints

            Justin Evans was probably supposed to start for the Bucs before they signed Ward, but then he couldn’t beat out Conte.

            Obi not starting for the raiders

            Josh Jones not starting for the packers

    Charles Leno and Bobby Massie on Jordan Howard’s performance: “He’s a fucking soldier, man,” Massie said. “He was a Pro Bowler for a reason. Fucking loved it,” Leno said. “I loved it. It showed that he cared
    and wanted to be out there for us, and it made me go harder. I just told him that — it made me want to block for him extra hard. And when he does that and he shows that courageousness, man, comes out there and keeps battling back after we know he’s hurting, I’m going to give it everything I got for that guy.”

        • CanadaBear

          Are you in any way responsible for this curse Al? I remember seeing a lot of those games (every game unless I was working at the grocery store) and they were so bad. At least i wasn’t present for the game responsible for the Bears missing out on Bradshaw. Although if Bradshaw went to the Bears things would have been much different (not in a good way).

          • AlbertInTucson

            Thank you for laying that concept at MY door step.

            Of the 3 games I saw at Wrigley, it was the only win.

            You and I both know, Bradshaw is just another Bears first round bust of a QB if the Bears get they’re mitts on him.

            I am also the camp that thinks Terry’s only in the HOF because he was SURROUNDED by REAL HOFers on both sides of the ball and had a HOF coach..

            As Bear he’d have been the another Gary Huff or Bob Avellini.

          • CanadaBear

            Mostly agree. He did have that arm (of course, so did Bobby, Vince, Jay, etc.) but wasn’t exactly known as Einstein. Never saw the Bears anywhere but Soldier Field. The only win in about 10-12 games was the KC 28-27 where Walter had THAT run. All of the other games were losses and most of them were lopsided losses.

      • Sahr Gborie

        People arrested for DUI are NOT “thugs” but they are careless. DUI is a choice. You know when you go drinking there is a possibility you might get drunk. It’s not the first time anyone has heard of or seen the consequences of a DUI.

        • Sactowns#1

    Man, can you imagine what this team would look like if they had a QB ready for prime time? idk, someone who had been in the national spotlight and thrived. Someone who reached the highest levels in college before coming to the pros. If only there were someone out there like that in the last draft. Houston must have had a crystal ball, or a subscription to ANY newspaper.

  • Just watched the Canelo-Triple G fight.

    It wasn’t as much of an ass-kicking as I heard.

    The firs 3-4 rounds were mainly feeling out, and one could argue Canelo took those rds, albeit not by much.
    Triple G dominated the middle rds. Not so much punishing Canelo, but pressing the fight, keeping Canelo on the ropes, and walking through his punches.

    However, Canelo didn’t seem uncomfortable on ropes. It almost seemed like he was letting Triple G gas himself out, which in the later rds after 10 seemed to pay off as Canelo seemed to create flurries, but Triple G never was really phased by them, and kept pressing regardless.

    It was a classic puncher-v-counterpuncer fight that I think Triple G won, though it wasn’t exactly dominating.

    Canelo never panicked, slipedt in stiff punches, body blows, but could never really connect on combos, nor did he hurt Triple G .

    I don’t know if the rematch will be any different. Triple G seems just to be naturally bigger/stronger, and he may just come out swinging in the rematch not giving up those early rds.

    And on that note…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIV-QdPEx-Q

    • CanadaBear

      I would argue GGG won one of the first 3 rds and 4-9 were pretty much his. Again, I would argue he won one of the last 3 rds. No matter what, it was a good but not great fight. Both guys were very cautious until they were both fairly tired. I saw GGG stagger Canelo slightly and Canelo fought through it. GGG seemed to be a little surprised by that. No issue with a draw but 118-110 Canelo would have been ridiculed if this fight was in Canelo’s training camp. Rematch should be a dandy.

      • Yeah, that 118-110 card was ridicules even though it wouldn’t have mattered if it was closer anyways.

        def those early rounds were close. Canelo basically out boxed him, and Triple G was being overly cautious (which Kellerman observed was an Eastern European style). Once Trip G felt comfortable he switched to a more mexican style fighter and began hunting him down, cutting off the ring (though he didn’t really throw many body shots)

        Canelo was just trying not to get caught. Think he wanted to feel his power first before moving in.

        Agree with you. A good not great fight (no knockout or brutal exchanges). Very tactical on Canelo’s part.

        I just don’t see how Canelo can beat Triple G. He can’t hurt him. He’ll have to out box and out last Triple G again.

        Maybe he can put some tape on of Sugar Ray v Hagler.

        • CanadaBear

          Canelo has father time on his side. Each fight takes something out of a fighter and GGG is 35. He’s not the feared fighter he was even a 2 years ago. Hopefully they get it on again pretty soon.

            Other than that, I have no opinion on this matter.

        • EnderWiggin

          Haha, I get it man.

        • Johnnywad

          I feel like this moment in blog history requires a Burma Shave.

          • We used to have limmericks. Hmmm (dusting off feathered pen)

            Getting on all fours…

            NVM the limerick was more offensive than the act.

          • Johnnywad

            You can’t just leave me hanging here.

          • SC Dave

            In elder times of
            Da blog yore, we’d see haikus…
            Wit, culture, and more

          • AlbertInTucson

            Not sure ODB is worthy of such.

          • Johnnywad

            It’s not for him. It’s for you. Years upon years of posting and nary an “F bomb”. But here we are. We’ve found the threshold. It deserves commemoration.

            And I’m with you. I’m tired of his bullshit.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I have, upon occasion, gone profane.

            I especially try to throw it at other posters as my debate policy is

            ” First one to resort to profanity or insults has fun up the white flag.”

            Beckham is a mental train wreck waiting to happen.

            When his career ends, and being an NFL player it could end on any given Sunday, I think the lack of that stage to scream “Lookit me! Lookit me!” is really going mess with his psyche.

  • Random thought.

    Have two teams coming off OT games ever played the next week on TNF?

    (both winners, no less).

    • Johnnywad

      Somebody is going to look that up. Im going to pretend with confidence that I know, and just say “no”. I’ve already convinced myself.

  • Anthony Shifflett

    Yes, they should play the kid. Which is exactly why they won’t.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Congrats Anthony. We can see your face. Welcome.

  • BerwynBomber

    My thoughts on the three stars who drew notable penalties yesterday.

    Richard Sherman — should have been ejected and been given a healthy fine. Mariota was easily a couple of yards out of bounds when Sherman launched himself. The former is lucky he didn’t end up with a concussion. A dangerous play.

    OBJ — Unless you’re a fan of NYG, who cares? (And btw, John Randle did the same “urine” celebration about two decades ago after a sack.) But if you’re a fan of NYG, I wonder if you start thinking what is most important to OBJ.

    Von Miller — a joke of a call. Honestly, refs. Get the stick out of your ass. Hell, even Taylor laughed at it when it happened.

    • Moss mooned the crowd after a TD to the indignation of hair plug addict Joe Buck.

      He’s in the HOF. OBJ will be alright.

      WRs are primadonnas.

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    I just saw OBJ’s celebration. Laughed my ass off. It would have only been better if he went to the pylon or goal post and did it. OR if the defender was on the ground and he did it.

    • willbest

      If there was a defender it would be taunting, and probably worthy of ejection.

    • BerwynBomber

      I saw Randle do it back in the day so didn’t find it as amusing the second time. But yeah, I can’t see getting all Joe Buck/decay of moral values about it.

      Btw, the Von Miller thing was funnier, IMO. And offensive to no one. Well, except Tyrod Taylor and he laughed about it too. Ref should have kept his flag in his pocket.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Love the new Star Trek. Wasn’t expecting that. Great stuff. Even went a bit Blake’s 7 at the end! I was surprised, this is really good. Easily the best debut of any Star Trek … for me … except maybe for
    The Menagerie. Loved it.

    • SC Dave

      Groovy. Easy franchise… Just Do It Right

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    If Fitzgerald keeps it up he is going to end up with single game catch record.

    • Arians is attacking the cover 2 with Fitz slipping into those zones.

      Only thing is, his Oline can’t keep up long sustained drives without fucking up.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Beating Kyle Orton and Brandon Marshall?

      Kyle Orton, haters!

  • I’ve noticed a lot more teams only rushing 3 and dropping back 8 across the league.

    Used to be Ds blitzed, but perhaps this is to counter all that WCO pussyball shit.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Replacing pressure with coverage? Gay. As. Fuck. And there IS something wrong with that.

      • Been seeing it a lot.

        It started with the Chiefs @ Pats.

        Brady couldn’t hit those 3 step drop routes.

        Way to counter it is a strong run game, but the Pats didn’t have that, and neither do the Cards now.

        Seems to be effective for those statue QBs esp in 3rd and +5.

        We mixed some in against Steelers.

        • SC Dave

          And to pur credit, the Steelers usually have a run game.

          I know irish hates him, and it almost makes me like Fangio more.

          But it’s more that running against the Bears got difficult in three years.

          • SC Dave

            Come to think of it, running for us got FAR FAR better. And running against us got FAR FAR harder.

            Still want to fire Fox, blog bros?

          • As long as Goldman and Hicks are starting, running will be difficult for opponents.

            But last yr when Goldman was out, running got much easier.

            That’s probably part of the reason why Freeman got so many tackles.

          • CanadaBear

            Yes

          • AlbertInTucson

            One doesn’t have to exactly be a genius to know to pound the ball with Mssrs. Howard and Cohen.

      • SC Dave

        Adapt, Irish. 1985 was over 30 years ago

        TOUCH a pretty QB and give up 15 and a first down.

    • SC Dave

      And the fact if you TOUCH Brady, you give them a first down.

  • FF…

    Can Shady’s Fitz score 20 more points tonight to beat Ender?

    That would be a brutal loss for Ender. Both of them are 0-2 though likely will be the two highest scorest of the week after tonight.

  • AlbertInTucson

    “Greatest of all time…”

    • SC Dave

      Absolutely right. Brady would not have lasted ten seasons in the league in which Roman Gabriel played.

      • AlbertInTucson

        I saw Bear LB, Jim Purnell, get Gabriel, full speed, helmet first, right between the shoulder blades. No flag.

        He went down like hit been shot by a .357.

        Watch the highlights of the 1963 Championship game some time.

        The Bears absolutely brutalized Y.A. Tittle with hits they NEVER could have gotten away with in today’s game.

        Heck, watch the 85 NFC Championship game .

        The Giants got away with murder against McMahon, relative to the way the game is called today.

    • BearDown100393

      Great point. Different eras. Different rules. Different football. Honor’em all.

  • CRAZYBEARNORTH48

    Oh to have a receiver. .that can catch n take it to the house with determination. ..oh yeah need a qb aswell to throw it

    • SC Dave

      Yes, Glennon mostly sucks.

      But his stats are sooo bad because the WRs cant do anything with the chances they get. The *worst* WRs in the NFL.

      But the regs here will tell you getting rid of Alshon was the Right Idea.

      • BearDown100393

        The Curse of Sam Hurd

      • CRAZYBEARNORTH48

        Yeah I thought just pay him the money but maybe he just wanted out anyways

  • Great effort by Dez.
    That being said, I never understand why the refs don’t call the illegal pushes by offenses. Like Frederick pushing Dez from behind.

    The ‘Bush Push’ is still a penalty last time I checked.

    • AlbertInTucson

      It is my understanding that you can push the pile, but you can’t pull.

    • BearDown100393

      Dez Bryant. Heart.

    • SC Dave

      Because pussies hate defense

  • BearDown100393

    When in Arizona, I cannot help but think of Dennis Green’s rant.

    • I’m surprised Tomlin didn’t have a meltdown.

      • BearDown100393

        The Steelers were very flat. Strange. And our D rose to the occasion.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Not so strange, actually.

          Steelers are something like 5-13 on the road vs. losing teams under Tomlin.

        • SC Dave

          It makes me laugh that you posted about just enjoying the victory. And for dozens of subsequent posts, you’ve tried to find fault with “our” team just winning a game.

  • BearDown100393

    Larry Fitzgerald is one of my favorite people in pro football.

    • He’s so rare.
      Not a primadonna WR
      An excellent blocker
      Catches everything
      Durable
      Consistent even with awful QBs

      • BearDown100393

        IMO most deserving player to go out with a SB win.

        • SC Dave

          Not for me. I’ll go Marino. Or any number of players on the four time (in a row) AFC Champion Buffalo Bills.

          • BearDown100393

            Meant currently playing

          • SC Dave

            Oh… well shit. Ok then. Might put Forte in there, but that’s a personal thing as you know

          • Irish Sweetness

            Jim Kelly, way more than Marino. 4 times in a row. Great achievement.

      • SC Dave

        One giant fucking problem.

        He does not play for the Bears.

    • AlbertInTucson

      And sitting on my bench this week.

      I should know better.

      Larry always shines in prime time.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Dude, they have NO receivers healthy not named Larry.

    • Irish Sweetness

      More than Pam Oliver …. nekkid?

  • FF

    lol Oh noes. Ender is only up by 6 now. He’s got the Ariz D. Shady has Fitz.

    Not sure who wins, but yikes. I’d be sweating it.

  • PAR7

    The League’s Worst Starting Quarterback
    I AGREE 100%
    Glennon is the Shittiest QB I have seen start for the bears in the last 10 years. Bench him now and put Mitch in, then we will have more then a chance to beat the fudgepakers.

  • Zeke has a deceptive running style. He doesn’t pop off the screen with amazing acceleration, agility, or strength, but he seems to have a combo of them paired with vision, patience and instinct.

    Kinda reminds me of Forte but with more long speed.

  • BerwynBomber

    The stunning thing about Prescott is that he seems like a ten year veteran.

    • He has amazing poise for his age.

    • BearDown100393

      Getting a chance to play early as a rookie (even if under injury circumstances) sort of worked all out for d’em Cowboys huh?

    • AlbertInTucson

      Mobility factor.

      There was a TD pass you will never see from Mike Glennon.

      • BerwynBomber

        The TD passes I’ll never see from Glennon are infinite.

      • BearDown100393

        Giraffe should just shove the football in his mouth and gallop down the field. Nobody could reach for it.

      • SC Dave

        Glennon has obviously beaten all of you. You can’t watch a single football play without thinking of him.

      • AlbertInTucson

        It iwas also a TD pass Carson Palmer is never going to throw, anymore

  • What a catch!

  • BearDown100393

    Larry Fitzgerald is incredible. Regardless of the replay decision.

    • BerwynBomber

      HoFer …

      • BearDown100393

        No question

  • God. Watching Fitz makes me pine for a real WR.

    • BearDown100393

      Complete gamer.

    • madscout12

      Need a QB that can throw to him.

      • SC Dave

        Lame. Give it up

        • madscout12

          I don’t see Larry running 3 yard sticks and being the checkdown route. Our guy can do that.

          He’d probably get picked on the sticks though.

  • lol and with that catch, Shady overtakes Ender 171-169.

    Holy moly heart break hotel. How do you lose after Hyde, Gurley and Cook blowing up?

    Ender is left hoping the Ariz D gets a TO/TD.

    • EnderWiggin

      I’m guessing I have the most points through three weeks. 0-3. Only way to explain that is heart break.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Ew.

      • I think I was the leader, but after tonight, you might be the highest scorer overall. Yikes!
        MNF has NOT been kind to you.
        You’re likely the Glitter Heartbreak Award 3 weeks straight.

        Starting Cam and sitting Wilson killed you this week. This after Hyde and Gurley gave you 77 points on Thurs!

  • AlbertInTucson

    Fitz also has that key ability, DURAbility.

    • madscout12

      The best ability is AVAILAbility.

      • AlbertInTucson

        If you ain’t durable, you ain’t available.

        • BearDown100393

          Kevin White’s confused.

  • BearDown100393

    Gruden is jinxing Dak right now.

  • BearDown100393

    Honey Badger ain’t bright.

  • BearDown100393

    Flag Football. Another NFL Problem!
    – Next POTUS Tweet

    • willbest

      That might unify the fanbase though.

      • BearDown100393

        lol maybe

  • AlbertInTucson

    Yeah, keep running Dak like that.

    It’s really helped Cam Newton’s career.

    • BearDown100393

      Never recovered from that SB shellacking

    • BerwynBomber

      Newton has to run. He’s not much of a pocket passer. And not a guy who will have a long career. He is who he is.

      • willbest

        He is in his 7th year. In fact through 6 seasons he has only missed 3 games compared to Cutler’s 7 and Rodger’s 9 (from the time he started).

        Now I wouldn’t sign 32 year old Cam to a contract (that is when his current one expires), but I think he has a good 10 years in the league as a quality starter. That is short compared to talented pocket passers, but its still longer than most QBs.

        Tony Romo for example, only started the majority of the games for Cowboys during 8 seasons of his 12 year NFL career.

        • BearDown100393

          Romo was just a bridge quarterback between Bledsoe and Dak……..

        • BerwynBomber

          I’m talking a Brady, Peyton or Eli career. And Romo had a body busted up like Evel Knievel. So he’s not the best comp. Plus he was a lot smaller than Cam.

          I just think by his mid-thirties Newton will either be out of football or a back-up. He’s got a huge arm but he’s not accurate.

          And he’s definitely at his best running the run-option O. That stuff ain’t made for lengthy careers. But if you’re CAR you might as well take advantage of his skill set while you can instead of trying to turn him into something he is not.

          • Newton looks done THIS yr.

            He’s likely still recovering from previous shoulder inj

          • SC Dave

            It looks to me like he is. This throwing motion looks… odd.

  • BerwynBomber

    DAL is fucking loaded. So is ATL. Two best teams — by far — in the NFC (but it’s early of course).

    Weird thing? DET might be the third best.

    • BearDown100393

      IMO it change game by game simply by injuries. Dallas loses Dak, its over.

      • BerwynBomber

        Well, that’s most true of DET. But yes, generally any top team loses its starting QB, their prospect are snuffed.

        • BearDown100393

          #ROMO’d

          • BerwynBomber

            The exception.

            Ironically, so was Simms whom Romo replaced in the booth.

        • SC Dave

          Not us, though.

          • Irish Sweetness

            We get awesome!!!

    • AlbertInTucson

      I dunno.

      Arizona O-Line is a pretty stinky.

      • BearDown100393

        Gawd awful line.

        • AlbertInTucson

          2 starters out tonight but, even at full strength they aren’t so hot

    • SC Dave

      The Bears should have beaten Atlanta with Glennon playing. So where does that put us?

      • willbest

        Good teams close games, bad teams don’t.

        • SC Dave

          So we’re better than the Steelers by that logic.

          • willbest

            I presume so, since we beat them.

  • BearDown100393

    Palmer won’t survive the year behind that O line. No chance.

    • Cowboys are hitting him with 3 man rush.

      You’d figure they would double Lawrence at the very least.

      • AlbertInTucson

        And then there was Palmer rolling right, right into DeMarcus Lawrence.

    • BerwynBomber

      Wilson, Rodgers and Palmer could all be in for long years.

      SEA’s is arguably the worst O-line.

      • willbest

        I will hand it to Pace. He might not know how to pick up healthy LBs or WRs to save his life, but he has a plan and a contingency plan and a failsafe plan for that o-line.

        • SC Dave

          I’ll take it. The lines *are* football for just about all teams. Unless you have Rodgers.

    • Irish Sweetness

      He didn’t survive last year either.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Good night, Cardinals.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Card special teams continue to struggle under Arians,

    That missed FG looms large and Andy Lee’s best years punting are clearly in his rear view mirror.

    • SC Dave

      Arians is perhaps the most overrated coach I can remember

      • willbest

        Colts are worse under Pagano than they were under Arians. He seems to be having issues with not having the players to run the schemes he wants to any more. Its classic Martz syndrome. Really outside of Hoodie, what coaches are able to reliably take the talent they have and maximize the hell out of it?

        • That’s what I was thinking.

          Stubborn and aggressive like Martz.

        • SC Dave

          Perhaps, but no one around here advocated us getting Pagano. Unlike the legions that wanted Arians.

          But had we hired Arians, we’d might still have Emery.

          • willbest

            McCaskey would be looking to move on from Emery and Arians right about now. 2014-2016 probably wouldn’t have been as awful.

          • SC Dave

            Except the team would have much worse players, or so would be my guess.

  • BearDown100393

    Palmer almost got killed on that 3 man pass rush.

    • CanadaBear

      I’ve been hit harder in a touch game than the LT hit the DE.

  • C’mon, Palmer!

    He’s my 2nd QB. Already beat Artoo, but nice to pad points AND Cowgirls lose.

  • BearDown100393

    Bruce Arians is not a genius.

    • He’s overly aggressive.
      He should realize his Oline can’t give Palmer enough time for long bombs

    • SC Dave

      I said that here years ago.

      • Irish Sweetness

        He’s a shouter.

  • BearDown100393

    Good game.

    Dallas will be discussed quite a bit for the next 3 days until Chicago beats the crap out of Green Bay.

    • madscout12

      Boy would it be sweet to put up 250 on the ground on them. I can see it now. 4th quarter. Bears down 3 with the ball with 6 minutes left. Fucking 7 straight running plays for 65 yards and a TD leaving :03 on the clock. Vadgers tries in vain for the Hail, but he can’t heave it the 75 yards to the end zone. Ballgame.

    • SC Dave

      Irrelevant game. The Only Game That Matters was yesterday. And coming again on Thursday.

  • NFL week #3 reflections.

    – WTH are the Jags? Are they some defensive juggernaut, or some overbloated Bortled team?

    – Are the Seahawks actually bad?

    – Good Jay, bad Jay, except with a tan

    – is Det D the most over looked?

    – What in the world happened to the Raiders?

    – Cooper may lead the league in drops

    – Bills/Jets not tanking?

    – Is Kizer a thing?

    – Rams an O juggernaut?

    – Rivers the new Cutler?

    – Perennial “cucks” Alex Smith and Hoya vertical machines?

    – Hunt on pace to break Dickerson’s single season rushing record

    – The entire NFCE is crazy.

    – Simian a front runner?

    – Puke most over rated team (again)

    – Pats being Pats. Ho-hum

    • AlbertInTucson

      Seahawks that bad?

      Their O- Line sure is.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      I think Cooper lead the league in drops last year.

    • Irish Sweetness

      1. Kizer is a thing if the thing is being the lowest-rated QB in the NFL.

      2. Hoyer is a vertical machine if that involves having one of the lowest YPA in the NFL.

      Smith has impressed me more than any other QB in the NFL the way he’s improved though, and we have a better one on our bench!
