DBB Weekend Show Featuring Sun-Times Beat Adam Jahns [AUDIO]

| September 8th, 2017

On this episode of the Weekend Show:

  • Jeff continues his obsession with the Glennon/Trubisky saga (with help from Eric Carmen).
  • Sun-Times beat Adam Jahns discusses the Bears plan for Adam Shaheen, the emergence of the rookie class, when Trubisky will be on the field and why he’s still concerned about the secondary.
  • The Reverend spends way more time on Newcastle than he should. Bear down!

    I will bring this forward

    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.”

    Jeff on Podcast:

    “I have been the only person on the blog who has been 100% consistent regarding Trubisky.”

    Uh…..

    • Corporal Clott

      Give that man a rrrrubba bisquit!

    • Hmmmm. I seem to remember calling Mitch the best QB of this class head-and-shoulders b4 we drafted him, and predicted either the 9ers or us were going to draft him.

      And that if drafted, Trub should sit.

      However, if Glennon goes full-Kenum, then Trub needs to warm up his jock strap.

      So no Jeff, others have been rather consistent too.

      • Johnnywad

        Maybe he means about starting him.

      • Corporal Clott

        Here, let me help you pat you on the back….you missed a spot. Hee hee

        • I’m trying my best to sound as insufferable as Jeff. But from the west coast

          • CanadaBear

            Misson accomplished! I couldn’t listen to more than about 30 seconds of the opening. Had to skip to AJ. Once the rev started up I was out.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Consistently saying “start the kid” is probably correct. But the kid needs to sit for a bit for many reasons we have rehashed and turned over. Jeff’s just riding the horse he rode into town on, and he can’t/won’t get off.

  • King of DBB

    Jahns on Bears critical flaw that gets them beat this week: Secondary

    Fuller is out of the doghouse.
    Prince won’t play
    4 new starters are gonna get p0wn3d against the Blackbirds

    • Yeah, look what the Chiefs did to the Pats and they have real players.

      Falcons gonna cut through our secondary like hot knife through butter.

      Only the Dline wrecking Matty can save them.

      Is Callahan still hurt? We need him in the nickle.

      • injury report lists 4 guys:

        McPhee, Long, Wheaton questionable

        Amukamara doubtful

        Everybody else is currently healthy and playing. Fox also said McPhee will play, but be on a pitch count.

        • Trevathan actually gonna start? That’s a minor miracle. Wow.
          Look at Cruz who suffered the same inj. Still not the same player 2 yrs later.

          I think Callahan makes a big difference once he’s in. If Fuller and Cooper do not get embarrassed, might have a chance.

          I’m more worried about Fangio’s gameplan.

          Maybe it’s more conservative than usual since Jackson is a rook. Then again, he started Amos his rook yr.

          It’ll come down to pass rush, pure and simple.

          And if the O can remain TOP to keep the D off the field.

          • Malice Halice

            4sho. I really do believe our front 7 is gonna shutdown the run game and also induce fear upon Matt Ryan. The 7 is gonna help our secondary tremendously. We just need Glennon to manage the ball that’s it. That 7 is severely underrated

          • That’s what has to happen.

            Or lines are our strength, and both units better bring it for the Bears to even have a chance.

          • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

            Trevathan starting and Trevathan meaningfully contributing or finishing the game are way different things. How does his body make it through this game? How does he just jump into game mode?

          • Yeah, goes for Long too if he ends up suiting up.
            Then again, isn’t an 80% Tre still preferable to 100% Kwiat?

            Everyone’s worried about Falcon’s passing attack, but they have the most potent 1-2 HB duo that are very explosive and pawn LBs.

            I expect the Falcons to test our run-d like body blows, then go over the top for the kill shots.

            Hicks, Bullard, Goldman, Floyd are gonna have to bring their A-game.

          • Johnnywad

            Depends. What if another month gives you 100% Tre and you just roll with Kwiat for now. I’d take that over rushing him back staring at Murderer’s Row this first month.

          • Irish Sweetness

            If Kwiat ever sees the field we’re fucked. Right there. Attack him all day. Can’t do it. Cannot.

          • Johnnywad

            His kneecap will be found laying in the turf somewhere by half time.

            I think he and McPhee must have a bet or something.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            they used that shard of metal found in the turf at soldier field years ago to fix Whites leg.

          • Johnnywad

            Upcycling

          • Irish Sweetness

            I feel the odds are high of neither Trevathan or McPhee being available for week two.

          • Johnnywad

            I don’t see it either. And probably never the same players they were again.

        • Irish Sweetness

          I have not heard a single squeak about Marcus Cooper since we got him. Not one.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Julio. Sanu. Gabriel.

        Their TE, Hooper, is no slouch.

        Freeman & Coleman out the backfield.

        That’s a LOT of bullets to Dodge.

        • Irish Sweetness

          You forgot Meg. Yeah, personally I think we get ripped new asshole by their offense, but as always, Hope Springs Eternal.

  • King of DBB

    The Reverend travels to African dark continent nations to spread God’s word, and then he drops more f-bombs/sec than a 15 year old doing his Twitch video of CS:GO.

    • “Thou shalt not fucking covet”

      Think the commandments need updating.

    • DaBearsBlog

      Wow. This comment goes in the hall of fame of having no idea what the fuck you’re talking about.

    • CanadaBear

      I think the Rev is a rev like I’m a rev. As in, uh, no. I think he’s involved in some do-gooder projects over there

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        pretty sure he is ordained and able to perform weddings and such.

        • CanadaBear

          Pretty sure that’s a mail order Rev! Good for a tax dodge.

    We need to come up with a facial recognition program to find out if Jeff likes Trub more than the Bears.

    • King of DBB

      You’ve heard of QR Code.
      What is your Dyke R Code?

      • Belts. And I’m not talking about those frilly belts, but belt buckles that can be used in gang brawls.

  • King of DBB

    Hey, it’s a video game designed to offend EVERYONE. A Mortal Kombat arcade fighter to boot:

    https://youtu.be/gZcQkbbCw1Q?t=14

    Round 2: Jesus gives a beat down to the Prophet Muhammad.
    For the right to square off against Yahweh at the Auschwitz arena.

    • willbest

      Putting Muhammad in a video game of this nature would be a rather courageous invocation of free speech. My guess is they pussed out.

      Game is factually incorrect though. Everybody knows Jesus’s preferred weapon is a whip.

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        Nothing can match the awesomeness of Jesus. So the reason for no whip is that they had to handicap him somehow.

      • Maybe the game developers can put like one of those FBI-pixilated boxes over Muhammed

        Be cool if Moses breaks the commandments over their heads WWF style.

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          then takes a shard of the tablet that says “Thou shalt not kill” and stabs the opponent through the heart.

          • The thing is, wouldn’t Jesus just resurrect?

            He could pull the arms off Lepers and club him to death. Finish him!

          • Corporal Clott

            Nah, he’s gotta wait until December 25th every year.

          • willbest

            Stop trolling

          • Corporal Clott

            Or is it the 23rd of December? I forget.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            but it takes him like 3 days to resurrect. what a pussy!

          • Corporal Clott

            Evidently, it’s not an easy thing to do.

          • willbest

            Its about 36 hours. Its due to the F’d up way Jews count days that resulted in “the third day” wording.

        • willbest

          These are the 15 commandments…

          err…

          These are the 10 commandments

    • Corporal Clott

      No wonder the younger generation is facked.

      • As a famous atheists said, monotheists kill off gods all the time, atheist just kill off one more.

          Most famous atheists die a horrible death. I think it’s a fair trade. Hee hee

            Didn’t he also have like 80lbs of shit in his colon when he died?

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            I always thought he was full of shit and a bit over rated.

          • Johnnywad

            The remake was a rare example of a classic being usurped.

          • Corporal Clott

            Could you please be a little less cryptic?

          • Johnnywad

            Me likey new version cowboy picture show.

          • Lol this is right ul there w Jeff, ” get over Cutler” even brought out Cheesy from retirement

  • Corporal Clott

    Yo MB, it’s time to get your boychick on… you’ve proven your point, now get yo ass back here. Sigh… I should have joined da league…

    • He won’t come back because he can’t admit that a decent QB is worth 5 AP defenders.

      • Corporal Clott

        A crisp 65. Absolutely marvelous baby.

            They call that a bath tub in Michigan.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I’ll still get in, albeit briefly, until mine gets below 70. That’s usually sometime in early December here.

            The wife thinks anything under about 86 is a cold plunge.

          • leftcoastdave

            Mine’s the same now. Not at all like the Boundary Waters back in June. No longer worried about it looking like a frightened turtle.

    Good thing Goodell locked in his extension this summer. I hope his lawyers made it ironclad. Unhappy billionaires are dangerous enemies.

  • willbest

    Zeke got an injunction against the NFL prohibiting it from suspending him pending his case against them in court. Standard court case times are measured in months to years, not weeks. He will likely not miss the season as his attorneys will not be in any particular rush to do a speedy discovery.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Per Steve Czaban, ESPN 980 in D.C…

      the NFL’s own initial investigator, a woman, told them the accuser was not credible and recommended no suspension.

      So, the league then brings in a second investigator, also female, who, apparently, gave them a report they liked / liked wanted whereupon they happily excluded the first investigator’s findings and barred her from the mediation process.

      Pretty sure in the real court system, that constitutes withholding evidence.

      Add in the fact that the 2nd investigator is also an unabashed Giants fan and season ticket holder.

      A clear conflict of interest.

      Czaban also disputes weather the entire process WAS in fact, “collectively bargained” or simply imposed by the league.

      Disclosures:

      ESPN 980 is the home of the Redskins Local Broadcasts.

      Czaban grew up in McLean, VA. and is a life long Redskins fan.

      You wouldn’t think he would be rooting for the Cowboys to prevail in this.

      Czaban DESPISES the Giants and the Mara family and thinks they are the real power behind the NFL throne.

      He also thinks Goodell is a complete buffoon.

    This game will be decided by our front seven.

    If Bullard is back, their rushing yardage will embarrass them and Ryan will be . . . nervous, at best.

    Do it MONSTERS OF THE MIDWAY!!!

  • BuddhaJoe

    So all of you should keep an eye on your shit. The last two days I’ve gotten calls from the “IRS” saying they’re going to come arrest me unless I call some rando number and pay them some insane amount. Thought nothing of it at the time. Then I checked my bank account this morning and there was a charge from some place I’ve never heard of in Hawaii. It was only 37 cents but that’s always just the beginning. I cancelled my card and had to leave work early and go to my bank branch since I had just moved and they wouldn’t send me a new one unless I showed up in person. Pain in the ass, but I caught it before they did any real damage. Pretty sure it was because of the Experian breach so all of you should be on the lookout.

    • leftcoastdave

      Dude. This is no BS. I got a call from my bank yesterday wanting my personal information before talking to me “to confirm my identity”.

      I told them to f off.

      Be careful, be very careful.

      • BuddhaJoe

        When I worked at a bank we were trained never to ask for that shit over the phone unless they called us. They’re either scam artists or idiots.

        These guys that called me were hilarious. They called from some 769 number and out of curiosity I called them back. The lady that answered was clearly from either India or Indonesia and answered “IRS” like a fucking amateur, and started asking for info. Can’t believe people fall for that shit.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Always say “Sure, hold on …. yep … I’m me!” and hang up

    • Johnnywad

      The IRS will never call first. They will send you a letter in the mail before any other communication takes place.

      • BuddhaJoe

        Right? People fall for it though. Then again, I’m broke so if they want to steal my identity, best of luck to them.

        • Johnnywad

          Hahaha. Bout ten minutes later they roll back in with it. “We made a mistake. You can have this back Joe. Our bad.”

          • BuddhaJoe

            Sorry Vinishri, you still owe $600 to Kink.com for those Ultimate Surrender videos. You pay now.

          • CanadaBear

            Whenever I receive one of those calls I start ordering Indian Food. it really pisses them off!

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      That SUCKS! Keep an eye on everything. 2 years ago, someone used my info to open 8 phone accounts through AT&T to get new iPhones. Opened 2 different store credit cards for Victoria Secret and Express. all told it was close to $20K that they ran up between the cards and the phones in 2 days.

      Contact one of the credit reporting companies, I would not recommend Experian right now. Put a fraud alert and/or a credit freeze on your account. If you do it for one I am pretty sure they will contact the others.

      Keep an eye on daily/weekly on a site like Credit Karma. At least you will know if new cards are being opened.

      make sure you open all mail, some of the store credit cards billing look like junk mail and easily just thrown away. It took me a month, before i even noticed all this was done. Now I keep an eye on everything, atleast once a month I check credit karma.

      Link to gov’t site concerning ID Theft. I highly recommend reviewing almost every article. Especially on Fraud Alerts and Credit Freezes.
      https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/topics/identity-theft

      DO NOT SIGN UP FOR ANY PAY FOR IDENTITY THEFT PROGRAMS THROUGH EXPERIAN. Through their terms of agreement they are no longer liable for their fuck up of losing your data. So you can’t join a class action suit in the future.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Try this one. Ask them where it says in the law you have to pay an income tax.

  • dmckendree@post.com

    These Bears look a lot like the 1984 Bears. If they play Trubisky and he stays healthy they will make the playoffs.

  • BuddhaJoe

    On a football note, after watching the Chiefs destroy the goddam cheating bastards, I have hope that the Falcons were a fluke and the Bears can take them out.

    Hell, I watched Michigan dominate Florida despite Speight throwing two pick 6s on consecutive possessions so I’m feeling cocky.

  • dmckendree@post.com

    I was and still am a bigger Pat Mahomes fan but I think Trubisky is going to be a great QB. Sadly he will be the second best QB in football in a few years while Mahomes will be the best. Being a long time sufferer of Bear QB play, I am happy to soon have the second best QB in the NFL.

    • Mahomes!? I’m gonna take a wild guess and assume u still wanted Cutler and think Favre is better than Brady

    • Irish Sweetness

      Mitchell already looks like a great QB IMO. Whether it was significantly magnified by his opposites remains to be seen. If glennon puts in a stinker for 3 quarters against atlanta … Fox might send in the kid.

  • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

    SarahGJohnson, you hacked Equifax didn’t you? The senior VP of Equifax was enthralled with the idea of working on his computer for just a few hours and making such incredible money just like your best friend’s mother. I mean, she had been fucking out of work for 6 months! Now she’s on pace to purchase a LandRover and is the most financially rewarding she’s ever had.

    • Johnnywad

      It’s really something she’s able to make that kind of money on the computer.

  • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

    One day away boys and I’m feeling a little concerned. We’re rolling into this game with a backup QB, a handful of slot receivers, a rookie safety and an old average looking vet in demps, an inside linebacker trying to come back from a usually career damaging injury, suspect corners, 1 legit pass rusher, a DT with a ripped ass, no pro bowl Guard, a roller skate retrofitted center, a nose tackle playing at 80% and no cheerleaders.

    Is it over? Hell naw, is it going to be a rough ride? uh, prolly.

    • Johnnywad

      Sitton is a 4x Pro Bowler and and All Pro. Whitehair will be soon.
      Bullard is our #3
      RRH bout to break out
      Most/some teams don’t have a pass rusher with Floyd’s upside
      We finally got a rookie safety that looks like he can ball
      Our receivers are suspect for sure but the offense will be fine with Howard and Cohen carrying the rock and our TEs catching passes until Miller’s leg falls off
      Our suspect corners sadly are upgrades

      Half full Waffle. Half full.

      I don’t think they win tomorrow. But I’m optimistic about the season.

      • CanadaBear

        Totally agree except for the last sentence. I do think The Beloved are on the right path but between no decent backups and their injury history, things unravel in the second half of the season when it looked like they would be on the upswing. Hope I’m wrong.

        • Johnnywad

          By optimistic I mean a shot at a playoff game. I think the NFC North will be a three team dog fight.

          • CanadaBear

            Which team is not included in the dog fight?

          • Johnnywad

            I got the Lions Lioning this year.

          • CanadaBear

            Hope you’re correct. I’ve still got The Beloved in the basement.

      • Larry Mayer runner up award

        • CanadaBear

          That made me laugh (even though I agree with JWad).

          Where am I wrong?

            But our depth is for shit.

          • Johnnywad

            Meh. Hardly makes the Bears unique.

    • Football, like life, is all about grit. If the Bears come in and slap that silver spoon out of their mouths, then anything is possible.
      Bears have nothing to lose. If they play that way, they’ll have a dirty punchers chance.
      Throw some beer in their eye and kick em in the nuts.

    • Johnnywad

      This will be handy when Glennon carves up the Broncos in the Super Bowl.

      • willbest

        Really you like the Broncos to win the AFC? I don’t even like them to win that division and that is with the injury to Berry. You still got Carr.

        • It is the toughest div. Chiefs just went into NE and cockslapped them

        • Johnnywad

          No. See that was a joke based on the Giraffe fucking a donkey which is close to a Bronco.

          • CanadaBear

            You fuck one donkey and you’re labelled for life.

          • Johnnywad

            LOL

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            I understand Will not getting the joke, however I was surprised Butch didn’t get it.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Rickrolled.

  • CanadaBear

    Other than the Adam Jahns part, the rest was unlistenable for me. Jeff and the MT obsession is beyond old and I’ve never liked The Rant.

    • Insufferable.
      Esp when he was blowing Cutler for 20 yrs.
      Didn’t even wipe off the crust before kneeling for Trub

      • CanadaBear

        I don’t care about the almost decade long BJ for Cutler, it’s just the constant bleating about MT and patting himself on the back about it. I only lasted about 45 seconds before I FF’d to AJ. I never listen to the rev. If I want to listen to people swear non-stop I can go to any bar in town.

        • Well, only got 20 more years of this in the wings , Canada!

          • CanadaBear

            Honestly, other than AJ’s phone calls and Jeff’s calls with the radio station in Des Moines, I rarely listen to the podcasts. If it’s Jeff solo, it’s always horn-tooting time and The Rev wore me out the first time I heard one of his rants.

          • I like the rev. Then again, I’m a drunk !
            But jes, be prepared.
            Luckily vsome regs are fact checkers, so may prevent Jeff from going off deep Kruetz end. Then again, i think Jeff just claimed Trub is already better than Prescott, so …dramatic theatre pause…

          • CanadaBear

            Nothing against Jeff or The Rev, it just isn’t my cup of tea. Not sure why Jeff feels the need to go over the top about Bears QB’s but I’m not writing a blog for money either. I’ve never understood self-congratulatory hooey. If you’re correct people realize it, no need to remind everyone. Esp while you’re beating your chest and screaming it to the rooftops.

          • Esp when his biggest bet was Cutler. That’s like saying u were all in on the Challenger crash, but relax, trust me on the rest of the missions

      • Bender McLugh

        Haha ouch, brutal!

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      I like Jeff’s Podcasts, usually. But this one seems to be a very twitter driven rant. Need to wait till MT gets on the field to before patting yourself on the back. And that is coming from someone that agrees with him on the Glennon/MT crap. BTW, I love the Rev’s Rant, probably because he reminds me of a friend of mine that died a few years back.

      • CanadaBear

        I have no problem with other people liking it or Jeff using it. It’s just not for me. I really like Adam Jahn’s stuff so there’s that.

    • AlbertInTucson

      The Rant.

      The continuing exercise in seeing how many times one can spit out a worn out profanity was old the first time I heard it.

      It continues to sound like a kid who just discovered the word “Fuck”.

      If that rant were QB play, it would have been benched before halftime.

  • I just listened to Jeff’s opening monologue again and actually sympathized w the Romans nailing the last romantic jew

    #racist

  • BearDown100393

    I’d rather listening to screaming weasels drowning in Miami-Dade.

  • Corporal Clott

    “24 hours from kickoff and nobody has given me a single reason Mike Glennon is starting for the Chicago Bears. Seriously. Why?” Surly Jeff

    If the Bears win with Glennon will that count? Just sayin…

    • Did Jeff delete his tweets from when Glennon played the Titans?

      • willbest

        Our schedule is brutal but I would be curious how many wins in a row Glennon would need to string together to make a believer out of Jeff. You think 3-0 with the win in Lambeau would do it, or does Glennon also need to pick off the vikings going 2-0 in the division as well?

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          Glennon sucks – he is not going to win 2 in a row much less 3.

          • willbest

            And Alex Smith had no business launching 60 yard TD bombs in Foxboro either. Gotta play the games.

            Plus if they are going to win the first 3 games its not because Glennon matches TDs with Matty, Ben or Aaron. The D will have to do something. Which makes it harder to come around on Glennon.

          • I hate when I agree with you, but logic is logic

          • Corporal Clott

            So if the Bears win, it’ll have absolutely nothing to do with Glennon? Am I right?

            No worries Jeff, I got your back. hee hee.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Have to give props to Smith. He went from being a terrible QB with the Niners to the finished product, they were some beautiful rainbows he threw. Right on the money, nobody having to break stride. Beautiful.

    Quick free movie review:

    • willbest

      12 mil a year seems excessive

      • EnderWiggin

        Let’s reevaluate that in a couple days. Seems spot on to me.

        • willbest

          Is he a top 5 3-4 DE, because that is how we are paying him? And 30 mil Guarantee, only Wilkerson has gotten more

      • 7th among DEs in yearly salary, 5th in guaranteed. That means they’re treating him like roughly the 10th best DE in the NFL (always a few studs on rookie deals). Being paid pretty fairly for how he played last year, IMO.

        • willbest

          Don’t lump the 3-4 and 4-3 DEs together

          • I know, but Spotrac doesn’t split them. They really should.

          • Looking at guys who are top 3-4 DL:

            Jerrell Casey: 4 years, $60M, $24M guaranteed
            JJ Watt: 6 years, $100M, $31M guaranteed
            Fletcher Cox: 6 years, $102M, $46M guaranteed (4-3 now, but earned this when playing 3-4)
            Marcell Dareus: 6 years, $96M, $43M guaranteed
            Calais Campbell: 4 years, $60M, $30M guaranteed
            Malik Jackson: 6 years, $86M, $32M guaranteed (earned for play as 3-4 DE)
            Brandon Williams: 5 years, $53M, $25M guaranteed
            Cam Heyward: 6 years, $60M, $15M guaranteed

            I thought Hicks would come in more around the $10M a year mark, but I’m not upset about this deal. Shorter length helps. I’m hoping they’re able to structure so a lot of the cap hit falls in 2017-18, when they have more $$ to spend.

          • So this would make Hicks 7th among 3-4 DL in money per year, 5th in guarantees.

          • willbest

            Well it’s a 4 year extension. He was going to make 5 this year. Now it’s 53 mil over 5 years. At 10.6 that is more reasonable assuming it’s not 30 million in New guarantees

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            Are we having that tired debate on if someone is worth the money?
            1st things first, WHEN did those players sign those contracts?
            Each year the Cap has risen 10-15 mill. and players and agents are going to push for more of that money each year. So we have to take that into consideration.

          • willbest

            Oh I understand time in relations to contracts. I was huge on arguing Cutler’s deal wasn’t excessive, save for the guarantees. Which you routinely pointed out. And that is where we appear to be here. That was a lot of guarantees to give a DE

            Wilkerson 2016
            Watt 2014 (though considering injury history I don’t know how much higher it would be these days)
            Casey 3 months ago

            **** Where Hicks deal puts him

            Heyward 2015
            Liuget 2015
            Daniels 2015
            Wolfe 2016
            Garrett 5 months ago (rookie contract)

            And while you are correct that the NFL cap keeps going up its important to note that 2016 was the first time in a long time their ratings were down, ad sales for this upcoming season over the summer were also historically weak, and just yesterday they got horrible news with respects to the season opener. This I would suspect would cause owners who are historically rather conservative to tell their GM’s to be mindful of long term deals

          • willbest

            Since I am accused of not being direct with my responses.

            You can take this as my admission that my initial 12 million/season line was an overreaction based on emotion and not rational thought. Though I think the guarantees are excessive assuming they are new guarantees and not inclusive of the 5 we owe him this year. If its the latter then I would classify the contract as generous. Which I suppose we have to be given our last 3 years.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            ratings being down in an election year is nothing new, especially when they are close races. Preseason ratings were up. As far as the season opener game, I would not base the ratings for the season on that. 2 major events could have easily contributed to the ratings decline for 1 game.
            1. recovering from Harvey.
            2. bracing for Irma.

            Overthecap does, they have their own errors in their cap numbers though

        • Elect A Clown. Expect A Circus

          Hicks makes it easy for Leonard Floyd to get those sacks. Floyd is left one on one because Hicks forces OCs to put two on him.

      • Nah. He’s a BALLER.
        Which means, his knee will explode tmrw

        • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

          I got alot of dirty looks today from opposing parents. I coached my kids team today as a substitute. It’s definitely clump ball but i had had kids going on runs down each sideline and had the one kid who could kick the farthest feed them the balls while they sprinted like animals down the sidelines. It was a true asskicking. 12-1 and every kid on the team scored except for my sacrificial passer. He was sad while we were passing out juice boxes until another player pointed out that he had 12 assists which was probably a world record. He was very happy after that.

          #sacrificingfortheteam….in2ndgrade

          i’m also the dad that makes the last kid that scores in basketball pass the ball until someone else scores before they can shoot again. We have some ball hogs and bitchy parents that need to be put in their place and learn the game.

          • Johnnywad

            You haven’t learned yet that all of their kids are going pro and you’re standing in the way of their development.

        I’ve found that the best way to get employment is to not have your partner tell the entire world that your new employer is basically just a slave owner and that the most famous member of the company is a house nigger traitor.

    as we approach the opener tomorrow I can only say one thing…

    RYAN DEAD.

    • Corporal Clott

      I hope the Bears win. Oh how sweet would that be?

      • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

        i don’t care if we win as long as we ruin someone else’s season in the process.

        I want another fan base to feel the level of frustration that i do.

          Meh, at the end of the day it’s all about glory baby.

            Regardless, the season is here and let’s light this candle.
