John Fox Will Return, or Bears at Vikings Game Thread

| January 1st, 2017

From Rap at NFL Network:

The second-year turnaround did not happen for John Fox. The Bears coach, who twice in his career has turned in triumphant rebuilds in his second season, will try to win just his fourth game today against the Vikings.

But, according to those who know him well, Fox will have the opportunity to make his mark in the third season. In addition, much of his staff is slated to return, as well.

The losses have collected for Chicago, a frustrating two seasons. The result is not what anyone has wanted. But in making the decision to stay the course, the Bears appear to be looking at more than box scores.

The Bears have hung tough with teams in playoff contention, such as the GiantsLions, and Packers. They’ve done so with their fourth quarterback of the year, Matt Barkley who likely would be out of the league if the Bears hadn’t put him on their practice squad to start the season.

They have a whopping 19 players on Injured Reserve, including many, many starters.

In addition, their 2016 draft class will be the foundation of the rebuild, a class that has drawn praise from opposing executives.

All of which makes for an interesting evaluation of Fox, his staff, and the year: They’ve been forced to play young players and watch them develop. The culture, despite the losses, is a positive one. And they believe the future is bright. Could they follow in the footsteps of the Raiders … or Cubs?

It’s not perfect, of course. There could be some position coach changes, and they need a quarterback. But it will likely be Fox at the helm when it happens.

Completely unsurprising. And fair. But Fox will have to win games in 2017.

    Watch because I am always a Bears fan and don’t want the worst record ever

    • SC Dave

      Worst record ever was Jim Dooley’s glorious 1969 team, led by the estimable Jack Concannon and Bobby Douglas. 1-13, with the only win against the 1-13 Steelers.

      • Joecashflow

        We did accomplish worst Bears record in 16 game season

  • Joecashflow

    But mostly because we got ham sandwiches to,make it worthwhile.

  • Sauron’s right eyeball

    In all seriousness Jeff, please translate?

    “Watson is a GREAT college quarterback”
    or
    “I don’t see Watson as a pro quarterback Just don’t see it”

    • willbest

      He is RG3 is what Jeff is saying.

      • Sauron’s right eyeball

        Hmm….lost in translation. Guiness style?

    • Huge Bears Penis

      There is a long list of great college QBs that never made an impact in the NFL. For example, Tim Tebow was considered a great College QB.

    • DaBearsBlog

      Great college QBs: Crouch, Tebow, RG3…

      Watson is built for the modern college game. But can he be a pro pocket passer? I don’t see it.

      • Sauron’s right eyeball

        Gottit!

      • AlbertInTucson

        How about the Houston Cougar Twin Flops: Andre Ware and David Klingler.

  • Sauron’s right eyeball

    Sigh….In a rebuild phase, coaches get more time which almost always makes the fan base uncomfortable. Add the injuries, Yep…Fox is sure to be a lock for 1 more season.

    • willbest

      I get consistency. But this Fox’s 3rd rodeo. He should be able to grade out faster than if we had gone with Toub or Gase or Quinn or Bowles

      • DaBearsBlog

        Grade out with what? He had no team all year and played 6 games with his third string QB. His defense is top 12 with the worst secondary talent in the sport.

        • Irish Sweetness

          This is it. Anyone who’s pissed at Fox … it needs to be from previous years. 19 players on IR gives anyone a pass. He’s taken two teams to the dance, and one of them was 1-15 the season before. Hopefully we go 3-13 and go to the dance next year.

          • willbest

            They didn’t start the season in IR.

          • Irish Sweetness

            First three weeks we were beaten by three good teams (at the time anyway) Texans, Eagles and Dallas, then we beat the Lions, who are now 9-6.

            We lost two close ones in weeks 14 and 15 to the Pack and Queens, but we were well injured by then. I just can’t put this season on Fox. It’s a combination of no Cutty and lots of injuries and a rebuilding team. I don’t like either the OL or the DL.

            Hard to blame that on Fox. I don’t see why there should be blame sought. Rebuilding and injuries together won’t bode well for any team, regardless of who the coach is.

        • willbest

          I presume you are using some other metric than points against. Which has the Bear’s ranked 20th. We are ranked a respectable 12th in yards per play against, however that is due to the fact that we are generally run on more than most teams. The biggest problem is we are ranked dead last in takeaways.

          It also doesn’t change the fact that Fox has made a lot of horrible in game calls this season (and last) that have nothing to do with the players he has to work with.

          • Irish Sweetness

            I’ve seen some horrible play from the defense and the QB position, that have nothing to do with Fox. The players do the playing.

          • willbest

            And? They had 14 people on IR last year. 11 in 2014. 5 in 2013, 8 in 2012, and 10 in 2011.

            So in 2 years of fox the team is more injured now than it has been in recent years?

          • Irish Sweetness

            And that’s his fault? Not the strength and conditioning coach’s fault?

            It sounds like he’s being blamed for having a ball-less DC (IMO), a hit and miss OC, and possibly a … well you’d have to look at what kind of injuries we’ve had .. I’m not prepared to slate the strength coach based on no information.

            Thing is, Fox has been there. Twice. He’s only had two years with us, and I think most fair people would give a regime three years before the hatchet comes out.
            Hopefully we have a healthy team next season with another draft and round of FA.
            I’ll stick by him for another season, he deserves that.

            What does Pace give him to work with at QB though? That’s the kicker.
            I can’t see a playoff push without Cutty at least being on the roster at the start, and if they’re serious about doing that, carrying Shaw AND Barkley … as well as Cutty.

            We have to prepare for injury at the money position,

          • willbest

            Fox’s MO has always been a shitty game day coach that is good at evaluating coaching talent. So if you are telling me that he has surrounded himself with shitty coaches then he needs to be fired ASAP.

          • Johnnywad

            Mmmm. I don’t know. Outside of Belicheat, every coach makes shitty in game decisions. I think the bar is set far too high there and is fueled by non stop criticism from “journalists” looking for clicks. Coaching a game has got to be a damn daunting task. I’ve coached enough youth sports to know that I sure as hell couldnt do it. We all have the comfort of our living rooms from which to second guess every decision.

            The guy has been to the Super Bowl twice. He isn’t a shitty coach. History proves he’s a good coach. My only question is whether or not he’s still functioning at that level. If he in fact returns next season, while it would be so damn easy to walk away right now, that tells me he still wants it. And I hope so. I’m just not sure he’ll be the Bears’ coach when they have enough talent to be more than a force within the division. When you look at what it truly takes to play like the Patriots, or this year’s Cowboys, or Seattle over the last few seasons, I just don’t see the Bears playing like that. Not yet anyway. Seems like it’s a long way off at the moment.

          • willbest

            He was a good coach. You can lose your mojo. In fact, he was fired for it. Now Elway is a dick, but he knows what he is doing.

            And one doesn’t need to compare Fox to Belichick. Which SB appearing coaches is he in the same ballpark with in terms of in game decisions? certainly not the Harbaughs or Carrol or Coughlin. He isn’t even a Kubiak or Rivera. He is down there with Grimace

          • Johnnywad

            Can’t argue with your list.

            I’ll tell you what’s got me thinking. I woke up this morning, got a cup of coffee, and grabbed my phone. Finally made my way to Facebook to find my feed clogged with Michigan fans bitching about Harbaugh. They apparently aren’t satisfied with the job he’s doing which is utterly ridiculous. One of my favorite posts, was something to the effect of, “If he’s such a great coach, why doesn’t he use some of his $9M this year to find a great quarterback.”

            So circling back to Fox. He isn’t Belicheat or Carroll, but he’s still a good coach, or at least has the tools to be. From my perspective, If a guy is giving you pretty steady B+ to A- work, (impossible to say this year with 1/3 of the roster on IR), I believe it’s foolish to fire him and start over. He hasn’t lost the team, (See Minnesota). He’s getting production, albeit limited, out of players that won’t be in the league next year. And the players seem to respect him.

            I’d give him another season and hope for better health.

          • Irish Sweetness

            I’m not entirely on Elway’s side there. His judgement as a player was pretty suspect.
            As a GM ?

            1. He tried to make Osweiler his QB.

            2. He made Siemian his QB.

          • willbest

            He didn’t have a lot of other options available to him. Its not like he didn’t spend on drafting a QB.

          • Irish Sweetness

            This.

            He only needs to not-fuck-up a hopefully decent roster next season.

            The closer we get to the off-season though, the more uneasy I would feel if Cutty weren’t on the ship next season. Any dude you draft isn’t getting you to the Show next season. You go with Barkley and Shaw and one of them gets injured, you’re done. You sign Hoyer back, you’re not winning games.

          • Johnnywad

            I’ve been a Cutty guy pretty steadfastly for the most part. But he lost me at Tampa this year. It was a terrible game for him which followed a solid performance against Minnesota. But that was when I still believed Minny was a good team. They’re not and weren’t. He’s also pretty damn beat up at this point. He can’t be expected to play through a season any more.

            I won’t be upset if he’s back. But I’m ready for change and crossing my fingers it’s for the better.

          • Johnnywad

            He was smart enough to hire Gase a year ago.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Did somebody say you were Trac?

      I’m watching the Watson one ….

      • MB30SD

        That’s about right.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Brad Kayaa.

      Pace and Arians are interested in him? Is that because of his expected draft position? (2nd/3rd round). His brain?

      Irish’s Eyeball test: mechanics are shitty – and then sometimes solid, he’s on the skinny side, deep ball ain’t his thing .. but he might have the brain to adapt to the pros.

      • Johnnywad

        Fuck that. We can already have Hoyer without burning a pick if we want a game manager.

        • Irish Sweetness

          You guys watch the games, but I wouldn’t draft him or Watson on the little I’ve seen alone.

          • Johnnywad

            I really don’t. I based my entire opinion of him on your post.

        • willbest

          Kaaya can make throws down field, and he can use his eyes to move defenders, and seems to have a good sense of where players are on the field without looking at them. He does not have a particularly strong arm though and he is not mobile but he does a good job working the pocket.

          • Johnnywad

            You should see me work the pocket.

          • Irish Sweetness

            The otter’s pocket.

          • SC Dave

            Or not.

          • Johnnywad

            Hahahahaha. Ok yeah, maybe not.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Mitch Trubisky.

      I-Ball test :

      Well, the arm is there for sure. Shows some wheels. Good pocket presence. Can throw on the run. Can bomb it, zip it, but has touch when he needs it. Marino-ish release time.
      First year starter? If you draft him at #3 or #4 I don’t know if he should start for your NFL franchise day one.

      Draft him and you need Cutty on your roster methinks.

      • CanadaBear

        I watched the bowl game the other day. If you have Trubisky on the roster you don’t need Cutler. They are the same QB.

        • willbest

          With the hope that Trubisky develops.

        • Sauron’s right eyeball

          There’s only 1 Jay Cutler.

          • CanadaBear

            That seems to be enough!

    • Irish Sweetness

      DeShone Kizer

      The I-Ball test:

      Holds the ball down there like Cutty, not as bad as Tebow. Accurate enough though. CAn throw on the run. Has the zip, has the touch. Will he just take off on 3rd down instead of stand in there and go thru his reads? He’s 20?? I don’t know what his decision-making is like, but if he was our starting QB next season, the potential for shitting the bed is high.

      Anyone watch these other guys Pat Mahomes or Luke Falk?

  • carlito

    Fox, can’t coach or manage his coaches, he should have stepped in and told Loggains to run that football and Howard 20+ times or take over the play calling the time this team won was when he did that, he needs to fired Loggains get another OC,
    Plus he not lose, he coaches scared, he does not coaching to win, he wears his defense out then tries to use them at the end when there tired from Loggains, I’d send Fox home to he can’t coach anymore young team or qb and we need to draft Jonathan Allen, we missed on Aarons Donald and the guy the Jets got, so now it’s our turn, the Pats qb costs too much, Bucs qb is about the best, if they draft a qb, don’t do in the first round this teams needs a Garret or Allen to help this rebuild, solid picks required!!!!’

    • Sauron’s right eyeball

      Happy New Jear!

    • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

      Jose Fox es asustado.

      Got it.

    • Irish Sweetness

      On this we can agree, and more so on the defensive side when Fangio was happy to rush three at Rodgers. On the goal-line pass to Cam, Barkley threw the ball behind him, so had he been on the money, we probably win that game. That was just poor execution. Allowing A-Rod to stand in there and allow a deep route to develop is on the DC.

      • MB30SD

        Please don’t call him arod… Ever again

        • Irish Sweetness

          Accepted. Edited.

    Fox, coaches not to lose but not to win, so how is a young team gonna learn to win games from him, Elway fired him cause he can’t coach!!!!

          • Irish Sweetness

            Okay, Heat and Donnie Brasco were after 1993 .. but I think I’d have to consider Carlito’s for my all time top ten flicks. Certainly top 20. The way De Palma builds suspense in that movie, I can’t think of another film since then that’s done that.

          • MB30SD

            Love heat. Fucking ridiculous cast. Fucking spawned one of the most brash and notorious shootouts in history… And just a downright badmotherfuckingass movie.

    So my lady of 10 years who left the house (we sold it) and moved downtown while I picked up a lease on a townhome in the burbs, she called and wanted to spend NYE together. We saw a show and then went to a bar and toasted in the NY. Kissed at the bell.

    Since I don’t know what happened with hedge fund guy I brought her home at 3am but we didn’t tussle. No interest in going there if it’s been tainted.

    I am a bit of sucker. It was an ok night out. I think she may regret what happened but it does not matter anymore. She just looks so so good, like Carol Alt in her prime with that auburn that just slays me.

      There are women out there that are beautiful and kind. Life is too short to spend with one you don’t or can’t trust.

      For what it’s worth, my brother has gone through the EXACT same thing in the last five years. It was a mess. He now has a girlfriend of about a year and a half and she’s great. Smart, pretty, kind, grounded. But he had a hell of a time shaking the old and embracing the new. Once he got there, everything clicked. He’s a different guy without all the baggage. Very nice to see.

      I’m sure the same is there for you.

    3 Bets are in:

    1. New England and Seattle parlay
    2. GB on the money line
    3. New England / Steelers / Colts / Seattle parlay on the money line

    I could easily win all 3 and then we go right to the QBL with a quick 2 game parlay. Yes, that is the Qatar Basketball League.

      • Make RedZone Conv% Great Again

        any parlay over 2 games is a lottery ticket. Except when it’s New England and Seattle and their heartless coaching staff and players that are playing for their jobs every game. then it’s strategy.

        • Irish Sweetness

          I’m not betting this year (although I tried to get on Nunes, f**k you Totesport), but looking back over my spreadsheets of recent years, restricting it to single wagers and large stakes is really the only way to go. Even doubles are an un-necessary risk. You like two teams. Back both separately. The green-eyed monster only pisses money away.

          • Make RedZone Conv% Great Again

            I agree with that backing both separately strategy. I shouldn’t parlay but in certain situations I feel that it’s ok. Anything more than 2 well thought out parlays is gambling.
            I just made up for it with some hedging so today will be profitable no matter what. I’m building up my bankroll so i can use ultra conservative methods moving forward and still grind the profit upwards.

    Ok canada… here’s my sad sack story.

    Go out last night, get pretty drunk, which is pretty rare for me. I’m not really a big drinker, but it’s new years and I ubered. Why not.

    Aaaaaanyway. We go to a hotel party that’s across from our favorite little bar/club.

    Tons of chicks, most not that cute or too old for me (at the hotel party)… most of the younger cute girls seem to be with bfs or in big groups with lots of dudes, which make it hard to make a connection.

    Among the shuffle I run into the former playmate I dated for a hot minute a few years back. 9 face and 10 bod. She sucked though, she’d just blown out her knee when we met and she was a miserable negative person… I actually bailed her she was so miserable… even with the combined 9.5.

    So we hug (god she has amazing boobs) and talk for about 10 seconds she was with a friend who I talked to off one of the dating apps, but we never ended up hooking up cause she was obviously batshit crazy after about 5 texts.

    so the playmate and I have texted a few times and she asked that we stay friends even though she had a serious bf. Older guy with lots of money (shocking right).

    Anyway, end of the night about 1:00 I’m like, ok fuck this have had enough. Was drunk and hadn’t found an interesting connection so I uber home.

    1:30 I get a text from the playmate, I’m at XZY bar (the one I just left… for fuck sake) come here. come dance with me… pleeeeaaaase!! But she doesn’t spell come “come” she spells it “cum”.

    I’m fucked up so my dumb ass jumps right back in an uber back down to the bar that I know will be shutting down and turning the lights on.

    I fucking get there, lights on, kicking people out… and I’m thinking, shit, this is going to be easy. Pick her up, jump back into an uber home and ring in 2017 WELL!!

    Nope, get there give her a hug and she’s immediately swept up by her friends and the pack of dudes around them (older fat dudes… with money) as she apologizes and says she has to go with her friends.

    Anyway, I was like… what the fuck just happened. Sigh. Oh well.

    • Sauron’s right eyeball
      • MB30SD

        jes

        :_ (

    • CanadaBear

      Holy shit, that does suck. I was hoping it was going to be much more salacious with a fucked up ending. I’m actually a little shocked you got hammered. I didn’t think you went there. Sure don’t miss those hangovers. Hopefully miss 9.5 makes it up to you sometime but I’m guessing not. She sounds unbelievably selfish. Oh well.

      • MB30SD

        hahaha, yeah. Brutal. Drunk and my cock was thinking for me. smfh.

        Yeah, I do once in a while, but not really my thing. I have a really fast metabolism, so feeling better already. But yeah, when I woke up at 7 I felt like puking and my head was pounding.

        Pissed me off, because it would have been a really good start to 2017.

        Agree, was thinking exactly that this morning… she better text, apologize and take me to dinner to make up for that weak ass shit… but I seriously doubt it. I’ll prolly not hear from her again. It’s ok, in the end, I couldn’t put up with her for long anyway.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Eating with alcohol is the key. Apparently.

          • CanadaBear

            I’m pretty sure you and I could sit down and write a drunk’s self help book. Good advice with a large dash of humor.

            Trust me, our drinking styles were similar.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Dude … THAT’S IT?? You mean you didn’t wake up at a friend’s house .. and they sit you down .. and slowly say “do you remember what you did last night?” like you’d murdered Santa?

      That’s a shrug and a five-knuckle shuffle ending. At least you can remember getting home. That’s a victory in itself.

      • MB30SD

        yeah, I know. Her text totally came out of the blue cause I thought she was in a serious relationship. My dumb drunk ass fell for that stoopid shit.

        I’m not that guy. I’m the guy that sounds reasonably sober even when I’m pretty fucked up. I like control… and there’s no addiction of any kind in my blood (thankfully)… well, maybe strange now.

        But yeah, was a super high high and a bummer low all in about a 30 minute span. I’m an idiot.

        • Make RedZone Conv% Great Again

          you gave her dopamine levels a bump by showing up. She texted and got validation from your penis. Then shunned your penis. You must punish asada and hit the surf and realign like Bodhi.

            yep, fucking bingo! nail on the head.

            I am going to our other fav bar who has the most famous taco tuesday in san diego. I plan on having a surf and turf (carne+shrimps) and carnitas (best in the place) and maybe a grilled mahi… although they’re a little bland for me.

            As for surfing, it’s been pissing for 3 days… need to give it 72 hours for mother ocean to heal up sadly. And I don’t have the kids, so it’s football all day yo.

    So, no McPhee, no Floyd so, no pressure today.

    Normally I would have predicted a breakout game for Laquon Treadwell but he’s in street clothes too.

    Sheldon Diggs is also a spectator.

    So, that means big days for the Viking white guys, Rudolph and Thielsen.

    • CanadaBear

      At least Treadwell will keep his 15.0 yds/catch avg for this season. Sounds good until you find out it was 1 reception all year.

      • Irish Sweetness

        I guess a breakout game for him would be 3 receptions and one of them is a first down.

        • CanadaBear

          I would think Queens fans are even more down on that pick than we are about White. At least White has the injury excuse.

    I just checked the score before turning it on. No point in watching. I’ve seen this before and have better things to do. Hope I’m wrong but looks like they’ve pretty much lost a lot of fight. All the injuries and subsequent losing can probably do that to the best of them. Whole season was pretty much 16 exhibition games.

        great, met up with her at the bar a little before midnight, evidently her friends convinced her to get a little dolled up for the night, almost did not recognise her when I first saw her. The guys I was partying with were giving me shit for hooking up with her the night before and did not believe me when I told them she had a sneaky hot body. They all shut up after seeing her last night. She came right up to me told me she was dying to get out of her clothes. Does not take a genius to figure that one out so we head to my place shortly after midnight. She woke up before me and made me breakfast.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            well not quite yet, she could have done the dishes and cleaned up the kitchen after the mess she made making breakfast. LOL. Not going to hold that against her.

            Lazy biatch!

          • Huge Bears Penis

            I forgave her – earlier tonight she surprised me by showing up on her break at work just to blow me. Walked in said ‘I got 5 mins i want to suck you off’ swallowed and left. Really starting to think she is a keeper.

    Gotta wonder if Barkley’s last two games increase Cutty’s chances of returning. Gonna be a hugely interesting off-season. I suspect Fox will clean house with a few fall guys in the next day or two.

    • Sauron’s right eyeball

      When Cutty gets inducted, I hope it’s as a Chicago Bear.

    Cutler really will be on this team next year

    • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

      Ugh turrible throw

    • BerwynBomber

      Could be. I’d also be fine with a Foles(Glennon)/Hoyer/draft pick mix.

      • Irish Sweetness

        That’s 5 QBs …. which 2?

        Cutty/Shaw for me.

        • BerwynBomber

          Depends on how high the draft pick. If he’s high you have the two journeymen fight to make the roster. If he’s low, you have a three way competition and the odd guy out gets cut or stashed on the PS.

          • Irish Sweetness

            The tough thing about drafting a guy …. you really have to keep Cutty in that scenario.

          • BerwynBomber

            Not at all. In fact, if it’s a high pick, more likely Cutty’s gone and Bears keep Hoyer.

          • CanadaBear

            Gotta keep in mind that Cutler might not be Cutler after the labrum surgery. He might lose his fastball. Either way, don’t care.

    Yep, Matt Fucking slauson. Damn it

    • Huge Bears Penis

      was the rest of them injured?

    • Irish Sweetness

      Slauson and Marshall were BAD moves by Pace. Gained nothing by subtraction.

      • Big Mike

        Marshall wasn’t. He’s about to get chased out of NY. Martellus Bennet was a bad move

        • madscout12

          Marty Bennet wanted out of chicago

      • MB30SD

        Slauson turned out to be… Ask the Jets about Marshall. That was an easy one… And the right one

  • EnderWiggin

    I really like Freeman, but I’d be happy if he never blitzed again.

  • RenoBear

    Hall must be in the doghouse… why aren’t they letting him play over Porter?

    • Irish Sweetness

      He’s got to be injured.

      • RenoBear

        I hope that’s the case

        • Irish Sweetness

          But I thought Porter was injured, or is he just that slow?

          • RenoBear

            The announcer was just how porter is gutting out injuries… I’m thinking ‘fuck that’ get him off the field

    Matt Berkeley is awful. The DB who one hopped the under thrown ball he sucks, the guy who muffed the punt, he sucks, Logan Paulson he too sucks.

    As I type this Barkley fumbled and he sucks again.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Paulsen is DEFINITELY a guy that needs to be elsewhere.

      I’m feeling that Pace needs to do nothing at QB. Cutler and Shaw are very reasonably priced and talented QBS .. who are already under contract. Sweet.

          • Big Mike

            Berwyn, my comment was directed at the guys who were saying Barkley was or might be the answer.

          • beninnorcal

            You’re right, ButtonHole, random posters on a Bears blog are the reason the Bears blow, cuz they make all of the personnel decisions. Wait a minute..

          • Huge Bears Penis

            i think he found out my secret. I am actually the bastard son of George McCaskey, just a product of an affair with a stripper. However Dad has taken my advise on many personnel moves within the Bears organization. He has also tasked me to come on this site and make rational arguments on why we can’t win with a bunch of UDFAs and waiver wire moves, while playing our 4 and 5 QBs.

          • ButtonShoes

            It boggles my mind the level of support John Fox still has. Despite many, many years worth of evidence that he’s a boob, people still want him.

        • Big Mike

          Obviously you are a football genius

          • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

            Elway is and he shit canned Fox and his half ass ways.

          • ButtonShoes

            Fox owns the worst home record in Bears history, the worst road record in Bears history, and the worst two-season start for a coach in Bears history. Not to mention, everyone’s been saying that the players are playing hard for Fox. Do the past few games look like everyone’s been playing hard? They got their clocks cleaned. They gave up. And yet, even then, people are still defending Fox.

          • BerwynBomber

            I can see both sides of the argument but why people are calling you an idiot I cannot. Nothing of these first two years tells me Fox’s continued employment should not even be questioned.

        No rushing attack. Poor pass protection. And their all-world defense became inconsistent after the first six games of the year.

      • Make RedZone Conv% Great Again

        Stats lie. They had a brutal stretch of Hoyeristics. That is the practice of statistically looking like you should be better but you cannt convert or score when needed.

            At this point SEA might feel they have to win regardless. Their late season slide has been pretty ugly.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Losing to an “out of it” Cardinal team at home last week, when they had a chance to sew up a bye, had to sting.

  • BuddhaJoe

    Wow so Howard was the only one showed up to play. Barkley played his way out of Chicago. Fox made me regret my earlier statement about letting him stay another year. The Defense either gave up, wasn’t trying, or blew dogs. And Cutler was given a second wind without even being on the field. Interesting day.

    But fuck it, I paid my bar tab with poker winnings by finally getting quad Aces at our cash game for the first time. Winning!

    • BerwynBomber

      The D was the most discouraging thing the last two weeks. Then again, tons of injuries at the end.

      Barkley was a slight letdown as I think most people, at best, were cautiously intrigued/optimistic. Emphasis on cautiously.

      See now I gotta root for the Lions since technically their my home state, and fuck the Packers.

      • Johnnywad

        I’m hoping Oprah shows up at the game and just starts handing out ACL’s like they’re cars.

      NFL probably isn’t all that happy with the Giants. I am going to have I hard time mustering up the care to kick the kids off the TV.

      Quite frankly I would rather lose this game and go play Seattle than host the Giants. I guess you have to go to Dallas, instead of Atlanta. But you are going to have to go there the following week anyway

      • Johnnywad

        They’re both fucked either way

        • willbest

          Seattle blows, and giants are plenty beatable. It’s Dallas and everybody else in the NFC and Pats and everybody else in the AFC. Though chiefs are movin. I will grant them that

          • Johnnywad

            I don’t see the Lions or the Packers winning a road Playoff game.

          • BerwynBomber

            I don’t even know if I see them winning at home. Let’s be honest, short of TB, the worst teams left in the post-season race were GB, WAS and DET.

            DAL and ATL are the two best teams, and most people would have SEA as the third best.

  • AlbertInTucson

    So, tonight’s loser goes to Seattle?

    • willbest

      Aye, seems better than hosting the giants

      • BerwynBomber

        Not a good choice either way.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Why? Just because the Redskins didn’t show up, at home for a second consecutive division game that could have put them in the playoffs?

        • willbest

          Seattle D is beatable. Wilson is having an off year. Giants D is tough and Eli likes to play in January

          • BearDown100393

            Wilson hasn’t been the same since popping his cherry.

    Well, Cousins became a bit more affordable today.

      I’d take him. Bears could win with him with the running game and the defense Pace better damn well be building.

    • willbest

      Cousins is what happens when Andy Dalton and Brian Hoyer have a love child.

    • BuddhaJoe

      Him and Howard might be something but I think they’d have to pay him too much. Since the draft class sucks, I think it’s the last act of the Cutty Show.

      • willbest

        It blows my mind that Jay Cutler was the biggest winner the last 2 weeks. I wonder if he was watching today thinking”Gdammit I am going to have to play in this city next year”

        • BuddhaJoe

          Well whether or not Cutler’s good enough, it was a reminder of what a shitty QB actually looks like.

        • BerwynBomber

          Could have been Hoyer too. TBD by POX.

    • willbest

      Still think he is going to get 19-20 mil a year and 50 mil

          • Big Mike

            That too.  Emery and  Trestman  wrecked the Bears.  2 years wouldnt have been enough time.  Bears have made progress.  They are a better team than they were 2 years ago, or even last year.  Record doesn’t show it,  but being as objective as I can be, I see a much better team.  This club was a 7 to 9 win team if it had a ‘typical’ level of injuries.   Had that happened I think most of us here on the blog would have figured Bears were on the right track.   They also would have been drafting around 14. You could argue that the injuries we had this year are going to speed up the rebuild.

      Right where they want ’em.

  • SC Dave

    Lol… Barkley TD reception.

    And you guys hate Loggains…

    • madscout12

      That should have been called 3 weeks earlier against GB at the end of the game. But yeah. Nice playcall.

      To bad most of the others suck.

      • SC Dave

        Well, fumbling the fucking punt at the end of the half doesnt help

        • madscout12

          Fucking amateurs…

    • AlbertInTucson

      Great throw from Meredith.

  • madscout12

    Love how Rodgers escapes two guys who just got pushed in the back and fell behind him. Every play, a Packer O-Line grabs an arm as a DL goes by, or pushes a dude in the back.

  • madscout12

    Fuck you, Lions. Fucking do something, you pieces of crap.

  • AlbertInTucson

    This game is slippin’ away, Loins.

  • Joecashflow

    Ok, we’ll that was fun. Many records accomplished. Most Pop Warner look-a-like moments in a game and in a season for maybe. Most Bears losses in a q6 game season and stats may show, most red zone INTs in a regular season my Bears or maybe NFL record. Congrats to Howard on his record rookie season and to Cam Meredith for never dropping a pass that I recall. He was held on that INT, never had a chance. That said, I have buried Trestman failures to the dark recesses of my small cranium, so please dont bring any of those back. I thinknow by kiss their sister, Jags may have gifted #3 draft spot to me. Some paid Chicago sportswriter recently said Meredith may never be better than a 2-3 WR. That guy has his head up his ass. The guy has more potential than Jeffrey, considering durability. No accident he threw a TD pass (to a QB that catches better than he passes), since he was a damn good college QB and athlete. Ok, last ramble of the season. Always a Bears fan. Bear down Bears.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Always, man. Looking forward to next season already. It really can’t get worse …and just maybe … MAYBE … the football Gods reckon we got a rough deal this season and let us off the next.
      Love my Bears.

      Next year … as always ….. The Season of Destiny.

      • Joecashflow

        We Expats deal with some strange stuff, like seeing the Jags game at 17-17 on my fantasy site and it says “final”, lol. Oh well. Still think we are 3 in draft and will start looking forward. SF made smart move getting rid of Kelly and moving forward. Fox is a coin toss that I defer to people in the know and I think GM Pace has done a good job and he should know, As BB says changing coaches all the time is not a formula for success. He also said, if you look at alot of the HC’s out there, there is not a lot of smarts. Paraphrased, because the Bears lost again and beer helps. Peace to all loyal Bears fans out there ! Packers SUCK !

  • madscout12

    GB is out of CBs. If Stafford can’t drive on these tools he is every bit the loser as Cutler. Possibly more.

    • BerwynBomber

      Stafford has led his teams to the post-season three times in eight years. We could only dream that Cutler was that type of loser.

      • madscout12

        Cutty has at least won a playoff game.

        • BearDown100393

          It was sweet beating that 7-9 team.

          • madscout12

            Twas. And we were good enough to host a playoff game. Cause Cutty made it happen.

          • madscout12

            Or WR falling down on slant routes.

      • Make RedZone Conv% Great Again

        Team game as you know. 2012 they were 10-6
        Lost in last 38seconds to packers in 13

        That’s two more legit chances right there.

  • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

    Rodgers camped out on that TD

    • AlbertInTucson

  • AlbertInTucson

    I say they go deep.

    • madscout12

      You gotta unleash the dragon.

  • madscout12

    The only good thing about the Pack winning this game is that they have to play the Giants. They always fold against the Giants.

      Thanks, Loins.

  • Make RedZone Conv% Great Again

    Greatest day of gambling (investing) of all time in terms of win%:

    Won :
    2 – individual game bets
    3 – two game parlays
    2 – three game parlays
    1 – four game parlay

    That’s 8 out of 9 bets. That is the universe apologizing for taking Cutty’s thumb and labrum from me this year.

      He can’t even guarantee that he’ll be here next year. And that if he is that he’ll play 9 games, let alone more than 16.

  • BerwynBomber

    So we pick third. CLE has two picks in the top 12. TEN two in the top 18.

    • Irish Sweetness

      We were a Niners FG away from the second pick.

      • Joecashflow

        I am hoping that is splitting hairs, doesn’t matter, and we pick BPA, Defense. If we think about last year, rd5 we got Howard, consider the possibilities. This GM may be the draft guru. Meredith wasn’t too bad either !

    Where is this Malik McDowell projected to go? A DT that looks like he could be a great DE. Beats his double-teams. Peppers-sized. Fuggit, if we could get him in the second I’d have him AND Allen.

    Here be your Wild Card playoffs, biggunz

    Oakland smokes Houston in Oakland. Connor Cook’s shining moment in the wet fart bowl. Seriously, somebody should liquid shit in a pair of oakland silver football pants and run them up the flag pole for this game, as it will be one of those games that make you think “in Trump’s America, are we getting USFL quality football now?” His old New Jersey Generals would have stomped either of these teams. Oakland’s play was so bad against Denver it was a joke. Maybe Addison can show up in #45 to run a Wildcat snap for them. Nevertheless, Houston is worse.

    Pitt over Miami: The day will be bitter cold in Pitt and Miami will fold as Suh waits to get back to Miami to sit on the beach and collect his money. Suh playing the best ball of his life? Won’t be enough. Moore against Rapey Ben? No.

    Detroit at Seattle: God help us. This will be unwatchable football. Detroit got their balls kicked in last night. I can’t see them rallying, not in Seattle. Seattle.

    Giants at Green Bay: Predicted field temp for this game: 4 degrees. God has blessed us with global warming and a slowing jet stream that pushes these pockets of artic air down to Chicago regularly now, and so we will sit at home and watch our hated no-longer-rivals because the Bears haven’t been credible in years foe take on the Football Giants and the best secondary there is. Right now Vadgers is so cocky he’s telling stories about Olivia to the press. He’s so confident that some intrepid reporter won’t find his VHS copy of “Christopher Street Sweat” under his car seat he’s talking it up. Remember when people were blaming Rodgers slide on his estrangement from his family? The jackals in the press had that narrative on the back burner for years. It stays on the back burner for a day when his skills do actually wane. This game is not that time: Packers by 8.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Damn, PIT are 1/5 … SEA are 2/7 ….

      …. but MIA +10 and DET +7.5 ? Feel any of that?

      • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

        Pitt is nasty at home. Detroit might cover.

    • BerwynBomber

      I’m actually looking forward to SEA/DET. I give the Lions a fighting chance. They weren’t awful last night. They just ran into a HoFer playing at an insane level. Plus, SEA has kinda limped into the post-season. I see SEA winning but also could see DET making a game of it.

      • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

        Curious as to why you think that will be a good football game…

      • Irish Sweetness

        7.5 points is a lot. Playoffs will be close. SEA just about managed to beat the 31st team in the NFL on Sunday.

    Something’s gotta change boys. No more garbage on this team. Here’s my cut list:
    * W@Bs
    * Alshon if he won’t take a reasonable deal with heavy playtime incentives
    * McPhee if his knee isn’t 400% (there you go will)
    * Cutler (duh)
    * Miller (great when on the field, but a waste of a roster spot)
    * Half the Fucking secondary if we can find replacements

    Who’d I miss?

    • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

      MB –

      You can’t start with a cut list.

      You start with a retain list. It’s MUCH less work.

      QB; Barkley
      RB: Howard
      WR: Meredith

      and so on..

      • MB30SD

        Do it!

    • CanadaBear

      We already know that W@B is coming back. No way Alshon takes an incentive-laden deal unless he gets no offers in FA (not likely), McPhee will probably never be 100% again, Barkley shit the bed so bad I’m afraid Cutler is coming back, Miller-meh, the secondary is double meh.

      With all the $ that Pace has this off season, if this roster isn’t dramatically improved, he should be shit canned along with Fox next off season.

      • MB30SD

        I’m in!

        Right, so net net unless pace hits on most of his offseason moves 8-8 will be a miracle.

        Yep, looks like I’ll be divesting myself heavily next year if the status quo shit continues

        • MB30SD

          I’m done giving so much of a shit about the browns north.

    • BearDown100393

      Alshon made the call. We just have to roll with it.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      I think you missed the other half of the fucking secondary.

      • MB30SD

        hahahaha, we need SOME depth right?

        • Huge Bears Penis

          they mainly came off the street, so cut them all and try again with street players. sign Hill and Berry, a Couple FA dbs and move on.

          • MB30SD

            If we sign hill and berry, I don’ give a fuck if we keep all these jags for just in case. Sign both those guys and pace can shit the bed on errathing else and I’ll still be sucking his dick for years to come

  • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

    What did Jeffery show at Detroit? To me, he showed he’s a #2. He has a couple routes he’s nasty at, and is a fly route with jump ball threat at all times, FORCING the opposing team to lock up the zone on his side and never allow isolation on a corner.

    And that’s ALL he is. He can’t break loose on speed, his first step is a bit slow, he lumbers and shows a stark aversion to crossing. All of which ODB can do.

    So, who do we keep:

    QB: Barkley and Shaw and Hoyer. I would look to FA, things that won’t cost draft choices.
    RB: Howard. That’s IT. We should have kept Jock Jizz over Carey like I said, the fuck is now an every down back for the Falcons. That means Langford and Carey outta the building.
    TE: Paulsen and Brown. So sick of Zach Miller. So sick. But I would let him come into camp. Harvard Braunecker is not NFL. Buh bye. Pruitt gone.
    WR: I would tag Jeffery again. Meredith. Thompson.

    I would let Wilson and Royal go and call it a day on White who won’t come back again. Braverman gone.

    RT: I’d cut Massie and hit the market. Massie was a mess this year.
    RG: Long. Probably let Larsen go.
    C: Whitehair.
    LG: Sitton. Becton, Adams all thos banged up guys – gone.
    LT: Leno.

    D

    DL: CornWash, Hicks, Bullard, Unrein. Goldman. Let Sutton and GoodDogFergie go.
    OLB: Floyd and Young. McPhee is gone. Acho is gone.
    ILB: Trevathan and Freeman but I would closely examine Trevathans contract. I think he’s going downhill fast. Kwik stays, Anderson and Jones – may give Jones a ST flyer, that’s it.
    DB: Callahan, LeBlanc, Hall all come to camp at corner. Hurst gone. McMannis can stay on ST, he played strong against the Vikes.
    S: Just Amos and Bush. Quartay gone, Carson gone, Prosinski gone. We can do better.
    IR DBs: I would trade Fuller if possible. Anything. Let Boykin go.

    Other IR Cuts: Grassu, Houston, Cutler

    • willbest

      There are not 15 WRs better than Jeffery. He can’t be covered solo by anyone except a top 5 CB. He is a #1 NFL WR. Stop using fucking fantasy football as your guide.

      Jizz is a JAG and Carey is cheaper.

      Sick of Zach Miller? You are mental. He I a top 10 talent when healthy, but we are only paying him for 4 games a year anyway.

      Your QB list screams drafting Kizer or Watson at #3 or just not giving a shit about next season.

      RT: Massie stays. There are worse options and FA won’t have better.

      • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

        Fuck you, it does not.

        I said we tag Jeffery, do you not read? And I can put together a list of 20 wideouts better than Jeffery.

        See, when you watch this: https://youtu.be/SnPORF6ooa8?t=67

        You see a #1 talent.

        Hoyer has a broken forearm, otherwise his arm is fine. He can run a competent offense. Barkley showed he could be coached up. Carey sucks, he’s a dive and grind guy who has zero vision.

        Watch a fucking Falcons game. And go watch all the times Massie just shut down out there.

        • willbest

          16 ppg is not a competent offense.

          • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

            Bears could always pick Fournette from LSU who is slated at #6 to put Forte on the bench, to beef up the running game. Howard showed the holes are there, we just need a guy who can hit them. Two top backs would bolster a lot of series.

          • willbest

            You are trolling right? You have a top 10 RB for chump change, on a roster full of holes, and your thought is perhaps to pay top 10 RB money to a guy who might be Zeke or might be Gurley. It would make more sense to draft a WR.

            Build the trenches, best DB or QB.

          • MB30SD

            This I agree with except the QB thing. Pointless. Build everything else this year, roll with the camp/preseason winner of HOYER/Shaw/Barkley and then get our chise in ’18… since we’re probably going 8-8 with Bernie next year anyway.

          • willbest

            Going 8-8 and getting the 14th pick is going to make trading up to #1 or 2 very expensive.

          • MB30SD

            Nah, we need to find a dak maings. don’t need a high first any more. Just ask the rams or broncos

          • Irish Sweetness

            A team NEEDS two backs. I’m with GP on this. LeVeon Bell went down, they had DeAngelo. Pittsburgh are on the playoffs. Tennessee have Demarco and Derrick.
            We have .. .Jordan Howard. And if he goes down we have NO running game. We go from 6 YPC to 3. Fact.

            What’s wrong with Gurley? Have you seen his line?

            If we trade down from the third spot, then we CAN draft a RB, S, OL, DB … all within 2 rounds.

          • MB30SD

            we’ve got much bigger problems man. We have 3 guys who can do what they’re asked. You don’t need a freeman/coleman man… not with our current roster issues

          • Irish Sweetness

            I should amend that, it’s NICE to have two backs. Obviously. If Jordan goes down next season in week one … bupkiss. They’re back to peeling back their ears, eating our tackles lunches ..and killing Jay Christopher.

          • MB30SD

            agree… and I’d be fucking NICE if I could head off the the bahamas for 6 months today.

          • Irish Sweetness

            We need two backs. Should have drafted Henry AND Howard. We didn’t need to draft Whitehair.

          • willbest

            Whitehair, after the first game, was probably the best thing to happen to our O-line. I base this on, I hear the least about him which is generally a good thing for Oline

          • MB30SD

            dude, statements like this make me wonder what your’e watching on your fuzzy pirated feeds?!?

            Dafuq maings?!?

          • CanadaBear

            Just when I think you’re making sense …

          • Irish Sweetness

            Ok, Slauson, I forgot.

            I’d still take Henry over Whitehair though. He looked every inch the #1 back for any team whenever they turned him loose this season.

            Grasu comes back healthy, what then? I’d rather see Whitehair at G, especially given Sitton and Long’s likelihood to be absent. It makes sense to have your best players on the field.

          • willbest

            Garsu is your backup Center next year. That is what then. Not all draft picks pan out.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Given that we played sub-par tackles – our starting tackles mind, a rookie guard (who played tackle in college) as our backup Center, played half a season without our starting guards … went down to our 5th QB …

          • willbest

            Is Howard better than Zeke? Because that is what you are saying when you dog our o-line like this. Dallas is considered a top 5 oline and is probably the best in the league and Howard (5.2 YPC) beat Zeke (5.1 YPC).

          • Irish Sweetness

            Jordan makes a lot of his own yards, his YAC is crazy. I wanted to draft Zeke, I like him. It’s a moot point.

          • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

            You mean Yards after Contact or Catch?

            He doesn’t catch that many balls. And his gift is his run read. He keeps his head UP and watches the opposing LBs and follows his blocks SO much better than Langford it’s scary.

            The holes were always there. It’s just that Langford runs into the back of his lineman and then falls down. Carey doesn’t even bother looking up.

          • Irish Sweetness

            contact. Jordan ain’t no Matty in the air, fo’sure.

            Jordan dropped 16% of his targets. Carey led the league with 23%. That was by week 14 or so.

        • Irish Sweetness

          I’d be okay with paying AJ 17M this year .. for ONE year. 2018 … we’ll see what happens next season.

          • MB30SD

            what does $17M work out for 5-8 games?

            Fuck that. Moose (or whoever it was) was right, Chicago is where WR go to die. Fuckt that shit. Dude’s a #2 at best… when healthy.

          • willbest

            Please create a list of 32 WRs that are better than him.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            he is not even the best on our team. BRAVERMAN!!!

          • Irish Sweetness

            On the injury thing, I get you … softness … PEDS .. I hear ya. But every team needs the jump ball guy – not that Cam is bad at that … but we need another, and the cap space is there.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            Patriots don’t need a jump ball guy.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Gronk/Bennett … how tall is Mitchell …. Floyd?

          • Huge Bears Penis

            watch the games. they are not jump ball guys. Brady and that offense does not need to throw jump balls.

          • willbest

            I am convinced Brady could close his eyes after the snap and hit his targets in stride.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            BTW the Pats picking up Floyd was a brilliant move. CHEAP and last year of his deal. If he helps out in post season great, if they don’t sign him in the offseason the will get a compensatory pick.

        • willbest

          Brian Hoyer, Jay Cutler, and Matt Barkley are not Matt Ryan. They aren’t even Eli Manning. DeAndre Hopkins was dogshit most of the year, and even Antonio Brown sees falloff when Landry Jones is in.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Jay doesn’t have Julio Jones or that OL.

            Hoyer isn’t even an NFL QB in ability .. and Barkley can be nothing more than a backup. GP said Hoyer can run a competent offense. True. But he won’t win you any games, because he can’t make the throws, and doesn’t even TRY to make them.

          • CanadaBear

            Wouldn’t make a bit of difference. If you don’t know who Cutler is by now, you’re not paying attention. He will be coming off shoulder surgery, no guarantees his arm will ever be the same, his thumb seems to be a chronic problem and putting all that aside, he sucks moose wang.

        • MB30SD

          agree 100% with this

      • Irish Sweetness

        There are 11 or 12 WRs better than AJ. I’m not saying ditch him. AJ + Cam + an improved Kevin (question mark there) is not a bad trio. We should definitely add a Vet though.

        I wouldn’t draft Kizer or Watson, and I certainly wouldn’t trade Cutty if I did in that scenario. Neither of those guys is winning for the Bears next season. Trubisky seems to be the only guy worthy of a top pick. Can you go into a season with Trubisky and Shaw though? Risky.

        Massie does stay, yes. I don’t like him though, and we can do better than Leno, who should also be on the roster, yes.

        • willbest

          And all of them will make more money than AJ when they get their next deal. Its his turn to make a deal though. And for some reason people around here think when the cap space goes up by $10 million, and teams around the league are flush with cap space that won’t drive the market up. Its like that stupid NES classic that Nintendo made 1,000 of and sold for $60. The secondary market this Christmas was over $200. That is how NFL works when talent is more scarce than money.

          And lets say you could even find 20 WR’s better than Jeffery. What is your point

          Quite frankly, if Cutler didn’t tear a ligament in his finger in week 1, he should be gone. If he did then you can sort of justify keeping him, but accident followed by playing injured most of the season. But his body hasn’t been the most durable (even if he is personally very tough), and its only going to get worse.

          In any case, you can’t trust him to stay healthy, and even if he is, he still is going to aggravate you some games. Hoyer isn’t building toward a future. I would rather suffer under Barkley/Shaw than Hoyer. If Hoyer is on the roster he is QB#2 and that better mean QB#1 is our #3 pick.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Now we’re into it. Let us speak the truth ….

      WR:
      I’ve been saying it forever. AJ isn’t a #1. Not a top #1. He’s a jump ball guy. That’s who he is. He’s a nice 1-2 bang with Cam … and Kevin will come good for a #3 with upside. DT has 4.3 speed.

      QB:
      I don’t think Cutty is going anywhere. He’s the best QB of any mentioned. He’s under contract. Barkley blows. Hoyer isn’t a pro football QB, and anyone who thinks he is hasn’t been watching. Shaw looks good. So Cutty and Shaw are already under contract and the best two QBs out of the lot hands down. QB is the easiest thing to address, it’s already been addressed. Neither Barkley nor Hoyer have contracts now, so good bye and thanks for playing. You sucked.

      OL:
      I’ve never liked Leno or Massie, they’re backups. What do we do with Grasu? I’d like to see him back at C, and use Whitehair/Long/Sitton as the guards. Two new tackles .. draft one and sign one?

      RB:
      Cutting Perry was a bad move, he and Jocksqueeze were our best backs after J-How. Carey can’t catch the ball (led the NFL in drops .. J-How not far behind). We could have drafted Henry for the dream 1-2 …. we should draft a RB.

      • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

        Barkley does not blow. He has serious problems pulling the trigger. He’s also being gamed on film because he has more tells than a rookie at the World Series of Poker.

        He can be coached up.

        • Irish Sweetness

          10 interceptions in 3 games speaks for itself. That’s not a one-game anomaly. For 15M or whatever it would cost to sign him as a UFA, he blows. If he’s a PS guy ….

          • Internet Smug Prick #9 (GP)

            He had a run where he felt a lot of pressure to make things happen, made a lot of bad throws with mediocre protection and had Jeffery out there dogging it.

            I watched many of those picks.

            A guy who is looking to force the ball instead of taking the check down can be corrected. He’s a rookie for all intensive purposes. He showed touch and range and guts. I think he can be molded into a solid backup.

          • MB30SD

            agree… he’s never going to be our chise… but a solid backup when needed, definitely. And we need a decent QB coach.

          • willbest

            Barkley is a $2 mil backup guy. He was headed to glory and then defenses figured him out. Unlike Hoyer however he can throw the ball.

          • Irish Sweetness

            He can throw the ball, usually to the opposing defense … but we’re not signing Barkley for 2M … actually … maybe we could now … but as our #3 … not as a #2. Shaw is the #2. We had a fine 1-2 going into the season. Barkley as #3? Fine.

            I appear to be alone in thinking professional football teams should carry 3 QBs.
            The popular argument is that if you need to rely on your #3, then it’s all over. It certainly is all over if that’s your thinking. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. This season .. what happened? We went down to the 5th QB.

          • MB30SD

            your views on shaw and hoyer preclude you from commenting on our QB situation. I’m sorry. You’re mostly ok on the rest… save the crazy talk about my boy Free

          • Huge Bears Penis

            his views on Hoyer are not wrong. Hoyer sucks. but his faith in Shaw is just crazy

          • Irish Sweetness

            Shaw could be anything, but his college highlights, and the little he played for us, combined with the fact that he was our #2 entering the season, and therefore was designated as pretty decent by the office …. well, he’s already under contract anyway.

            If you think Hoyer should start in the NFL, MB, then that precludes you from talking seriously about Quarterbacks IMO. He just can’t make the throws necessary to do so. If you’re looking solely at numbers, that doesn’t do it. He hit Jordan Howard in the backfield on half of them, and handed off the rest. But the man can’t hit an out pattern, or get the ball downfield to save his life, certainly not to win games.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            Shaw is always injured. Even in college he was always injured. No thank you!

          • Irish Sweetness

            This I did not know, thank you, Penis! If he’s got the injury curse …

            Okay .. fuck it .. Cutty / Hoyer … compromise?

            No, Cutty / Glennon. With Shaw on the PS. Done?

          • BerwynBomber

            What you say about Shaw is kinda what you said about Fales, right? (Whom you dropped in a matter of minutes yesterday.)

            Hoyer is what he is: the prototypical “game manager” guy. If we draft a kid high, you can live with him in the role of bridge/mentor.

            Cutler is “win now”. The problems are: a) history says he really doesn’t win that much, b) Hoyer gets you to about the same place Cutty does albeit in a very different fashion (and for ALOT less money), and c) he’s 34 and “potentially” coming off major shoulder surgery.

            I see the argument for bringing him back. Wouldn’t be shocked if the Bears did. But it will be installment 9 of a series that should have only lasted five or six seasons.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            Hoyer is not even a prototypical “game manager” he only see the right side of the field unless it is a screen pass designed to go left.

          • BerwynBomber

            I’m all for bringing in a Foles or Glennon over Hoyer. Not tied to the latter. Only saying that productivity and wins-wise he basically gives you what Cutty does. But for a lot less coin.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Fales had five passes as a Bear officially … when the opposing D knew he had to pass it. He’s not on the team next season. I supported the guy as a Bear, that’s it. He’s probably on the PS though.

            Hoyer with a Trubisky draft ? Yeah, I could live with that. Guarantees us another high draft pick next season though. Plus it implies a Cutler trade which gives us an extra pick or two. I wouldn’t cut my wrists in that scenario.

            But why couldn’t we draft Trubisky and keep Jay? He’s better than Hoyer, and he can drive you down the field in two minutes and win you a game.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            Fales will not be on a PS. He is going to put that communications degree to work by selling insurance.

          • MB30SD

            irish, you CAN’T evaluate guys with their college, preseason and fucking HS tape man. you CAN NOT!!! Period.

            Here’s hoyer’s NFL resume (for us): 4 X 300/2/0

            We have a better D and real WRs and those are 4 wins man. He’s proven he can score TDs (although not enough) and NOT turn the ball over.

            We know NOTHING about shaw man. Dude hasb’t played in a real NFL game so he’s out of the convo automatically. Don’t even bring him up till he’s played at least 3-4 real NFL games.

            Hoyer may not be brady, but we don’t have that luxury anyway. I’ll take him any day as a bridge while we build the rest of the huge gaps in roster. Please man, you have to be logical.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Okay, look on Shaw, I’m not buying shares in the guy. I didn’t sign him. But he’s not .. Todd Collins or Caleb Hanie. Those of us who watched the game where he broke his leg – can I assume you missed it? – he looked okay. He did. Can I get a witness?
            I’ll admit, it got me interested, and I looked at his college tape. He’s accurate. I don’t care what level you play at, you can’t teach accuracy.

            I’ll give you this on Hoyer – maybe I’ve been too hard on him – he doesn’t turn it over, no. Part of the reason for that is he never puts the ball in danger, to the point of over-compensating where he seems reluctant to put it where it needs to go. First downs didn’t get made because he wouldn’t put it down the middle between defenders – that’s just guts. Anyone can rifle it down the center, but he won’t.
            If it’s a 5 and out, 7 and out, maybe he can make those. But a 10 and out, he doesn’t have the arm. Bombs? No accuracy, forget about it.

            Game manager? Safe? Sure. But h won’t win you games. He won’t march the ball downfield for you at the end of a game, when you know Cutty CAN. Hoyer as a backup .. perhaps ..but not as a starter, no way. Can’t win with him.

            Can we agree on that?

          • Huge Bears Penis

            Quit cherry picking Hoyer stats, he is also 1-4 for us.

          • willbest

            Hoyer’s resume is 15-16, averaging 220 yd. a game, 1.8 TDs, and 0.9 INT or whatever it is. Plus you know he can’t throw it more than 12 yards

        • SC Dave

          I sure hope so, because we’ll never win anything big with Cutler in there.

      • MB30SD

        This is insane talk dude, “Freeman is okay. We can definitely upgrade the ILB position, maybe a FA there. We have no dominant inside LB.”

        He doesn’t get popped for peds and he’s easily in the probowl on a shit D. Dude is at or around the ball erra single play. He’s the best IMLB we’ve had since Lach hands down… now, that’s not saying much (eh dave?), but dude is a straight baller and one of the steals of last year’s FA.

        You craaaaaaazy maings!!

        That said, I wouldn’t hate your last scenario if we got a king’s ransom for our #3 that includes a first round pick in, say the top… 15?

        • willbest

          If Alshon doesn’t get popped for PEDs he ranks top 10 in receiving yards with Cutler/Hoyer/Barkley under center instead of Luck, Brady, Brees, Rodgers, Ryan, Eli, Carr, Big Ben

        • SC Dave

          Yeah, I love Freeman. Early this season I started raving a out him… he’s WAY better than Trevathan.

    • MB30SD

      Ahhhhh, there it is!!

      i knew I could count on you! Well done! I can’t disagree with any of those except maybe keep larsen for depth.

        Yeah, fuck, we can’t cut Larsen if we’re keeping our other guard at Center, and Long/Sitton are playing musical beds.
