Pittsburgh Steelers at Chicago Bears Game Preview

| September 21st, 2017

Why Do I Like the Chicago Bears This Week?

I always like the Chicago Bears. But that hourglass has been flipped.

When Trubisky?

There are three possibilities, as I see it, for the Mitch Trubisky era to begin in Chicago.

Possibility #1: Monday night, October 9th – Vikings at home

Under this scenario, Mike Glennon eats the hardest four-game stretch of the Bears schedule (and subsequent 0-4 record). The Bears would then have 11 days to prepare Trubisky for the Vikings and they’d be able to create an event atmosphere at Soldier Field that night.

Possibility #2: Sunday, November 12th – Packers at home

Under this scenario, Mike Glennon gets the entire first half of the Bears schedule. This would certainly require him playing better than he has through two games. Then Trubisky gets the bye week to prepare for a debut against the team’s oldest rival at Soldier Field. Would the fans get pumped up enough by his first start to fill the building? I think they might.

Possibility #3: Mid-game

I texted both of my league connections, both high-ranking personnel guys with other franchises, and asked how they felt about bringing in a rookie quarterback in the middle of the game. The two responses were “wouldn’t do it” and “fine with it”.

Here’s what I’ll say about the idea. I would not bring Trubisky into a blowout. You don’t want him on the field down three scores, having to drop back every play. But if the Bears are down 13-10 Sunday to Pittsburgh at the half and Glennon has looked like Glennon, I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to bring Trubisky into the game.

Notes on the Pittsburgh Steelers

  • QBs faced through three weeks of the season: DeShone Kizer, Case Keenum, Mike Glennon. By comparison the Bears will have faced Matt Ryan, Jameis Winston, Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers will more than likely start one of the most hollow 3-0’s in NFL history.
  • A player I knew nothing about who absolutely jumps off the screen is LB Anthony Chickillo. The former Hurricane is in his third season and has been all over the field through two games. How do the Steelers always manage to produce these f’n linebackers? Chickillo is also a terrific pass rusher and the Bears better be wary of his location at all times Sunday.
  • T.J. Watt has been something of revelation but exited the Vikings game with a groin injury the organization doesn’t believe to be serious. If Watt doesn’t play, it’s a huge bonus for the Bears. But will that mean James Harrison can actually get on the field for the Steelers this season?

Pittsburgh. Ditka.

Three Reasons the Bears Will Win

  • The knock on the Steelers coming into 2017 was their defense just isn’t very talented. Pittsburgh faced a backup quarterback last week and still allowed the Vikings to rush for 5.3 yards a carry. The Bears will get their yards on the ground but they’ll have to be creative to get them.
  • I just get the feeling this secondary is close to a big game. Kyle Fuller, Bryce Callahan and Eddie Jackson are giving Bears fans real hope that this unit is growing and developing at a level we haven’t seen in years. Interceptions are coming and might come this weekend.
  • There’s something about desperation and every guy on the active roster Sunday will know the 2017 season is on the line. If the Bears lose, 2017 is a nothing. When does Trubisky play? Does Fox make it through the season? Is there a coordinator change? If the Bears win, they travel to their rivals on Thursday night with a chance to even their record at 2-2 and turn 2017 into a something. You might argue this is an optimistic viewpoint, and admittedly it is, but it’s going to be the essential messaging at Halas Hall this week.

Three Reasons They Won’t

  • Mike Glennon.
  • Bears are relying on Christian Jones and Jonathan Anderson to pick up the slack from the Torn Pec Twins (Freeman and Kwik). There are two sides to this coin: stuffing the run and defending the middle of the field. They’ll get help with the former from a terrific defensive front. But there’s a good chance Steelers tight end Jesse James is the breakout star of Week 3.
  • The Bears have four sacks through two games but they only have one from the edge – a shoestring number by Willie Young last week. The Bears are always going to get a push from the trenches, as long as Hicks and Goldman are in those trenches. But it’s up to the guys on the outside to finish the play. They haven’t. Part of this has to do with the misguided decision to constantly drop their best pass rusher (Floyd) into coverage simple because he’s capable of doing so. But if they give Roethlisberger a clean pocket, the ball is going deep down the field to one of his supremely-talented wide receivers.

My Favorite Thing About Pittsburgh

Don’t Be Surprised If…

…this game is close.

I tend to believe the Bears are much closer – as a team – to what we saw against the Falcons than what we saw in Tampa on Sunday. Not the quarterback, the team.

Don’t Gamble, But If You Do… (2-0)

Two unders. Two wins. And neither number was threatened. Why would you go anywhere else? Take the under for the third straight week and pay that mortgage.

Game Prediction

Bears will limit the Steelers in the big play department and keep this game close. But when they need a big play from their quarterback, they’re not going to get it.

    Ditka was a hard mofo to tackle. Hopefully Shaheen changes the way TE play the same way Iron Mike did. Is that asking too much?

    • SC Dave

      Adam did say he quit basketball because he missed “hitting people”. So maybe there’s hope.

      Oh, and Jeff, where can I get a “snappy serape”!?

    • Irish Sweetness

      Yup.

      That pick will end up exactly where it looked to end up when anyone outside the organization and not on crack would have made. It looks and smells like a bad move to make in the second round when you don’t fucking need a tight end, but you do need ‘backers and an OT/OG.

      Ditka is a legend. Nobody knows who Adam Shaheen is and probably nobody ever will. In fact he’s in line for a broken tibia right about now.

      • CanadaBear

        He was on a ton of top 50 lists before the draft. Try to keep up.

        • SC Dave

          It’s easier to just make shit up, CB.

          Amidst Oscar Wilde’s “The Birthday of the Infanta” is this passage, which I always liked:

          “They did not understand a single word of what he was saying, but that made no matter, for they put their heads on one side, and looked wise, which is quite as good as understanding a thing, and very much easier.”

      • leftcoastdave

        Adam is being coached up with blocking assignments and was missed by Glennon wide open in the flat when the pick six was thrown. True to form, he is being brought along slowly but when the wraps come off, TK will produce.

      • We def had bigger needs, but I’m not gonna judge the pick until he actually plays.

        Like I said from the start, TEs are notoriously slow to develop, and I’d be surprised if Shaheen hit more than the 500Yds 5TD mark this season esp if Miller and Sims remain in the mix.

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          with Mike Ghastly, wait I mean Glennon, at QB, I don’t think he would come even close to those marks.

  • Bender McLugh

    “Kyle Fuller, Bryce Callahan and Eddie Jackson are giving Bears fans real hope that this unit is growing and developing at a level we haven’t seen in years.”

    Agreed wholeheartedly, but some on the blog vehemently do not.

    • BerwynBomber

      Hell, I even like LeBlanc in a limited sense, considering he was scrap heap guy.

      • Bender McLugh

        I liked LeBlanc last year in moments and I want to like him more but he’s just lacking something. Agreed though, he’s better than a scrap heap guy.

    • The close but no cigar brigade.

  • I’m going PIT 23, CHI 10, with 7 of that coming on a garbage-time TD in the 4th quarter.

    The last 6 quarters have shown the blueprint for how to shut this offense down. I expect PIT to execute it to perfection (which isn’t hard). Defense does well, but wears down.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Tarik Cohen scores?

      I’ll have another dollar on Deonte. He’s good for about one a week with looks.

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    I have a feeling this is going to be an ugly game. 54-7

    • Sahr Gborie

      I don’t think a word exist to describe how “ugly” this game is going to be. Glennon play is so inept the defense will be on the field most of the day. and by the second half the defense will be completely out of gas.

      • DaBearsBlog

        I truly disagree. I think Bears fans are overreacting to Week 2. Now, again, Glennon could make this 40-6. But I think it’s more likely he does nothing and the defense keeps it close.

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          I foresee couple pick 6s and a strip sack.

          • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

            i disagree because Glennon will not want to throw a pick so he will go into a turtle shell. You can’t be afraid to throw picks as a QB or else you’ll never trust your instincts on when a route is open when even slightly contested. You can’t be afraid and i think Glennon is going to play with fear.

            I could be wrong and I hope that i am.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            how much further into that turtle shell can he go?

          • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

            i think we’re about to find out. One of his rough picks was on the edge of the redzone after a bunch of positive plays in a row. It’s not like there was a penalty on the kickoff and they started on the 9 on the road in a dome. Confidence killer.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis
      • willbest

        Bears TOP against Falcon 29.5
        Bears TOP against Bucs 27 min

        Our D isn’t gassed, it just sucks.

        And if the D actually doesn’t want to be on the field perhaps it should stop opening allowing Bears opponents 7 minute drives and scoring points.

        • SC Dave

          Again, it’s easier to just make shit up than know the facts, will. Lot of that going on around here lately. I agree with Jeff that there has been a big overreaction to the Bucs game.

  • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

    You can thank me for the Bears victory on Sunday. I just put the whole bankroll on the Steelers straight up to win. 30% rate of return. The easiest money you could ever hope for…..and that is why the Bears will win.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      We appreciate your sacrifice.

      • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

        I’m here for you guys.

    • Scharfinator

      Hey, betting against the Bears is a legit strategy. Either you pay for a win, or you get paid when they lose.

      • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

        that is correct.

  • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

    Glennon will take NO chances this week as a result of last week’s rough first half. A “chance” for Glennon is a crossing pattern. Without taking any risk even in the slightest amount the box will be stacked and the run game will average 3yds per carry.

    • chitownproud85

      This is my fear. We wont even come out swinging – no pride, no “best shot” to climb off the mat. Just a hope that if we piddle long enough, they will play to our level and we’ll get “lucky” at some point. for gods sakes.

  • Irish Sweetness

    1. Great quote from Coach, Jefe. Absofuckinlutely ko-rekt.

    2. I’ll bet a dollar that Messrs. Anderson and Jones surprise a few people stuffing that run up the middle.
    One dollar.

    3. But surely BB and that defense is too much for our defense and Gummo.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      Wasn’t that Ditka quote given during a reunion of the 85 team?

    • SC Dave

      1. Is that why you hate Fangio, because his team does not look like the Buddy Ryan team OF THE PAST – you know, where losers hang out?

      • Irish Sweetness

        Nope, because he’s anti-pressure.

  • chitownproud85

    Bears win 20-17. Hope is a major ingredient of cruelty and a win against Pitt at home this week would raise a ton of it with the Packers looming and looking kind of weird. Bears win so that we can be properly crushed – a loss just leaves us in the shoulder shrugging category and that just aint bad enough. Bears win this week so that we can hear those soul crushing “Bears still suck! Bears still suck!” chants on live television while our dreams are dashed by our oldest rivals on a public stage yet again. My fiance was right – this is an abusive relationship with no hope of relief.

  • leftcoastdave

    Da Bears have to come out throwing. That is the only can opener available to empty the box. Play action zone block run right pass to Wheaton deep or crossing or TE on a slant. If it’s three into the line and a cloud of dust it could be a long day.

    • chitownproud85

      I actually agree with this sentiment. I think for the Bears to have a chance, they should come out chucking it. I mean Glennon can either get a win or he cant. I realize the current sentiment is that he cant, and maybe thats true. Certainly appears to be. But if the season was to mean anything anyway, he’d have to, and every team we play is just going to sit all 11 in the box because why not. Turn it loose. Chuck it. If it fails miserably…we are probably just moving more quickly to Trubs anyway.

      • Scharfinator

        And this way we fail trying something ELSE, rather than continuing checkdown city.

        • chitownproud85

          Logic Approved

      • Yeah, teams will most likely play man 1-1 with the WR with one high S over the top, which theoretically means that the big shot downfield should be open.

        That depends on the WR beating the CB, the Oline holding up, and Glennon actually willing and able to hit those deeper routes.

        None of which has happened on any consistent basis.

    • 7 of 11 plays on the 1st drive were passes last week. 5 of 9 on the 2nd drive. It only works if your QB can avoid throwing dumbass interceptions.

      • leftcoastdave

        Last week was anomalous. Tarkik tries to be a super hero and it’s 10 zip and behind the 8 ball. Glennon throws into coverage instead of the wide open Shaheen in the flats and its game over. The swamp did the rest to the D line and game over.

        We need targets out of the box regularly during the first possession. Only then will the running game open up.

  • Scharfinator
    • CanadaBear

      He’ll punch the guns out of their hands!

  • BerwynBomber

    I lean toward the first MIN game … regarding when we will see Trubisky.

    In some ways I’m more pissed that Fox isn’t giving Sanchize a chance while the kid bides his time. I watched a lot of Sanchize over the years. Yes, he can look as bad as Glennon. But he can also look notably better. Like (at times) competent NFL starter better. At least what I remember of the guy. Fuck, at least throw us that.

    Pitt 24 Bears 13

    • willbest

      Sanchez, when paired with a monster D, a solid O-line, and decent run game looked like Alex Smith. Which is to say good enough to make a SB run, but not good enough to go through 3 other teams doing it.

      We don’t have any of that at the moment. I remain skeptical that it would amount to anything, but it is most certainly in the couldn’t make things worse category.

      • BerwynBomber

        Agreed. But from eye test alone, I have absolutely NO (zip, nada, nyet, zero, …etc.) indication that what “good” Sanchez did in NYJ or even his year or two in PHI, Glennon can ever do in the NFL.
        But of course, our line is banged up and our receivers are shit, so nearly every QB would struggle to a degree with the Bears. I’m just not as convinced that Sanchize would struggle as much as Glennon. And even if he did … I don’t know if it would matter much and/or might even accelerate the starting of the rookie.

      • At least Sanchize is a bit more mobile, doesn’t stare down WRs, and takes more shots downfield.

        But he’s not even taking reps with 2nd team, so doubt he even sniffs the field.

  • willbest

    Did something knock the planet out of alignment. It was 60 in August and its 90 in September.

    • leftcoastdave

      It’s Gorbal warming.

      • willbest

        Only in September. In August it was random local variation that you can’t take any meaning from.

        • leftcoastdave

          Like I said, “Gorbal” warming, ie., irrational and myopic.

    • BerwynBomber

      Yeah, late September at that. I wonder if we are getting some sort of Hurricane aftermath system that has settled over this part of the country.

  • willbest

    I find it fastening that the reason somebody leaves their children alone, and the gender of the parent leaving the kid alone alters people’s perception of both the morality of the event, and the danger associated with it.

    • Sahr Gborie

      thanks for the article. very interesting.

      “When you decide to park your car in a parking lot you don’t look up at the roof to see if a sniper could hit you,”

      its very fascinating to see how we see other human beings as more of a threat to our well being than the natural world we live. we have set up social structures that are supposed to guide us and we are supposed to adhere to. but as society evolves so do our structures and norms. what we are seeing is a change in the norms and how we are responding to said changes. human nature and is a funny thing.

    • SC Dave

      “That is, people overestimate the actual danger to children who are left alone by their parents, in order to better support or justify their moral condemnation of parents who do so.”

      The “do-gooder” problem at a glance. It’s all about being able to position oneself as a another’s moral superior.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Fastening?

      • willbest

        fascinating. They haven’t made a phone that understands me yet.

  • DaCoaches Mustache

    It’s going to be a blood bath. Thankfully I’ll be on the golf course while this is happening. I can’t watch Glennon play. 2 weeks was enough. He is fucking maddening to watch. I’ll circle back when they start playing the kid, but for now I’m fine filling my Sunday’s with something else.

    • King of DBB

      tell ’em coach!

  • hdogg48

    The Steelers offense has been playing OK for the last
    2 games, while their defense has been playing great.
    If that continues this week expect the Steelers to win again.

    If their offense plays great and their defense plays OK they will win.

    If both their offense and defense plays only OK…the Bears
    at home got a shot to win a close one.

    • BerwynBomber

      R-berger has been showing his age recently. To a degree it is preview of how Newton will age, as both guys are very similar in the pocket, discounting Cam’s superior ability to take off.

      • hdogg48

        He still has a cannon of an arm, a top 5 OLIne,
        and elite weapons like Brown, Bell, and Bryant that most other teams
        could only dream about.

        Couple that with the fact that he’s been there before…many
        times. Other than Brady and Manning…who else can say that?

        • BerwynBomber

          Oh, I still think he is a helluva QB, I just think he has slipped more notably at a younger age than say Brady, Peyton, Brees, etc.

          But yeah R-berger has always been the goods. A solid top 10 guy, and at times, top five.

          • hdogg48

            He has always been at his worst when he tries to
            force things too much.

            Now with the above mentioned OLIne and weapons
            he doesn’t force things as much, and so far
            his stats have dwindled this year.

            If you try to load up and stop Bell, and Antonio
            Brown you better watch out for Bryant..who is
            big, fast and dangerous on the deep ball.

            He toasted the Vikings and was essentially the
            Steelers offensive star, last week.

        • Irish Sweetness

          He’s a stud. He’s been an elite QB since day one.

      • willbest

        I get that feeling from Eli and Brees as well.

        • BerwynBomber

          But Brees is nearly as old as Brady correct? So if he were to fall off now it wouldn’t be surprising. Historically, he and Brady are ancient.

          I believe R-berger is about Cutty’s age. Old but not quite ancient.

          As mentioned below, R-berger (and Cam) take a lot of hits as big guys who are hard as hell to take down and try to extend plays by strength alone. My assumption is that style ages a guy a bit more quickly via accumulated injuries.

          • CanadaBear

            Not to mention, if you are a man-mountain back there and your name isn’t Brady, Manning, Brees, Rodgers, etc. the refs will let the D pummel the QB.

          • BerwynBomber

            It’s the Shaq/LeBron thing. Because both guys are so strong they take a lot of fouls which are never called.

            Whereas a gust of wind blows on Steph Curry when he drives and the whistle is blown.

            Quite honestly, D-Rose use to get a fair share of the guy-barely-brushed him calls.

            Brees (definitely) and Rodgers (to a degree) are smaller guys. Brady and Peyton are every bit as tall as R-berger and Cam but they never did much of the man-mountain stuff. They aren’t/weren’t that type of athlete.

          • hdogg48

            True dat….I remember a game where Ben’s nose
            was bloodied and he had a broken nose and nothing
            was called.

            Meanwhile if your hand happens to brush across
            Brady or Brees’ helmet and it’s 15 yards…every time!

          • Irish Sweetness

            Ben stood in there over the years like a Weeble, that all adds up.

            Not that I would ever feel sorry for a multi-millionaire for taking a few hits.

      • Newton has taken more vicious hits IMO.

        A lot of that is due to him running more, but I’ve seen some obvious kill shots that if done at Brady or Vadgers, the players would’ve been banned from the NFl, while they don’t even throw the flag for Newton.

        Cutty never really got the same Brady treatment either.

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          R-berger used to take vicious hits his first couple years. missed at least a game a year due to injuries.

    • willbest

      Jeff, correctly, has pointed out that you need to grade the Steeler’s D on a curve.

      • hdogg48

        Good point…also they are young,fast, athletic, and
        deep as he pointed out with the emergence
        of Chickillo.

    • Joecashflow

      This will be the 3rd wk in a row that the Steelers play a shit QB. Wish I had paid more attention when drafting a fantasy D !

  • Joecashflow

    Just watched the Miami OC Wednesday presser. The whole 15 minutes is light hearted, no edge to it, unlike Bears pressers. Only 1 game, but they love Jay. Very open discussion about what he does, that they didn’t have last year. Ok, if we knew what we know now about the draft, maybe one more year with Jay would have given us a real chance for decent transition. I’ll be watching the Fins all year and hoping the best for Jay and Gase. Glad Jay gets the opportunity to end on his own terms. Who knows !

    • CanadaBear

      Year 9 of the Cutler regime was a non-starter.

      • Joecashflow

        That non-starter is a hell of a lot more interesting to watch than the crap we’re putting on the field.

        • BerwynBomber

          Of course. But there is also a good chance Cutler would have been good enough to hold off Trubisky for a couple of years. And then you are back to the whole damned if you do/damned if you don’t aspect of Cutler’s entire career.

          Say what you will about Glennon, but he certainly makes handing the O over to Trubisky a no-brainer. Well, for everyone but Fox.

          • Joecashflow

            I’m interested in winning games. That’s more a priority than mentor /handover. One season at a time. The hell with next year and Cutler.

          • BerwynBomber

            Not necessarily. You can argue that the development of Trubisky is more important than winning games this year … as much as we don’t want to hear that as fans. At least in the long-term it is more important.

          • Bender McLugh

            and this is what the team believes even though they won’t say it outright.

          • Joecashflow

            And just whom is developing Tru this year? Fox is not known for developing players. In this scheme, it’s gunna be baptism by fire or Fox will,be ridden out on a rail. It’s pretty clear that Gannon will not last the year.

          • BerwynBomber

            I assume Loggains/Sanchize/and our QB coach are developing Trubisky.

            Anyway, let me put the choice in more stark terms.

            You are given the choice between a 6-10/7-9 season with Cutler (while Trubiksy rides pine all year). Or a 3-13 in season in which Glennon shits the bed early and often and Trubisky sees a ton of meaning playing time the second half of the season. I think in the long run the second option might pay bigger dividends for the franchise.

            Now … IF Glennon continues to shit the bed (and there is no reason to believe he won’t) but maintains his starting position all year … then I am right there with you, which is basically why the fuck did we get rid of Cutler. Unless it was some tank job to get high in draft again.

          • Joecashflow

            What happens, happens at this point. Fox is taking orders. With Gannon playing like Gannon, looking at the schedule, my once prediction of 3 wins is now overly optimistic.

          • BearDown100393

            Giraffe

          • Irish Sweetness

            This is another reason NOT to start Mitchell. He’ll win games. We have to decide if we’re in the Darnold Derby or not.

          • Johnnywad

            Here we go with “developing a quarterback” again.

            Isn’t being the backup, practicing without pressure, and adjusting to the NFL “development”?

            So many accuse Fox of being incapable of developing a QB. Then, the minute he gets what looks to be a talented one, takes his time with him, refuses to put him in bad situations, and lets the kid practice, he’s an idiot for not going “Trial by fire”.

            Further, we have no choice. He’s the coach, for now at least. In lieu of that, who would you have hired, post-draft, once we knew we had MT, that’s available, has a track record of the requisite skills necessary to “develop a QB” and would want to come to the Bears.

            I just don’t see it. It’s chicken and egg.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            Play the kid.

          • Johnnywad

            Fine by me. I’m ok with whatever they do going forward.

            We just can’t simultaneously bitch because Fox presumably can’t develop a QB (which is a completely mythical process IMHO) and that he won’t just start him because that’s what we want. You can’t have it both ways.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            also Fox has really never had to develop a QB, so we really don’t know if he can or not.

          • SC Dave

            You make too much sense for this blog

          • Irish Sweetness

            What John Fox’ domain is … is defense …so I want to know why he endures Fangio’s hair-less empty ballsack?

          • Irish Sweetness

            I’ll buy that … so why is everyone so antsy Gummo is starting?

          • Irish Sweetness

            Nah, he was in his last year ….. he sees the kid along … and nature takes its course.

      • BerwynBomber

        I’m not sure Cutler ever wanted to be a mentor. A lot of dudes who have been starting as long as he is don’t want to make that transition in their careers. That is basically when they retire or look elsewhere.

      • Here’s the issue with keeping Cutler: then EVERYBODY knows they’re taking a QB high. The Glennon move with massive overpay convinced other teams he was Chicago’s guy, which was why they were able to land Trubisky.

        CLE had the draft ammo to outbid Chicago for the #2 spot and get Trubisky. By all accounts, they wanted to, but they thought they could get him at #3 from Chicago for cheaper.

        • Joecashflow

          Makes sense. I’m now content to watch Cutty win with the Fins and Fox cut his own throat with Gannon.

        • Exactly. Pace’s biggest fear was the Browns.

          He even admitted as much.

          Meatballs think a 3rd rder is somehow mortgaging the future.

          If Cutler had stayed, and the Browns began a bidding war for Trub at #2, good lord.

          We wouldn’t have a #1 next yr, and maybe no 2nd and other conditional picks.

          And quite possibly, no Trub

          • SC Dave

            Unless, of course, we went D

          • Then we’d be stuck with Cutler/Fox for another year and neither Thomas nor Adams nor the entire 85 D could’ve saved the season.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Can’t buy that either. The Browns? They had the first pick!

        • BerwynBomber

          There were 5-10 good reasons for jettisoning Cutler (and there were 5-10 good reasons for keeping him).
          Cutler was the ultimate damned if you do/damned if you don’t QB. He was a talented, flawed, frustratingly competent/average starter. He would never play well enough to carry a team to a winning record but he certainly could have played well enough the leave a rookie rotting on the bench.
          Plus, he would have created fives times the QB controversy that Glennon does. The Cutlerites would have hung onto hope until the bitter end.
          Pace, I suspect, knew these things and just wanted a clean slate.

          • Irish Sweetness

            So we would rather have Glennon, a bad QB, and pay him MORE money than we paid Cutty….?

    • We didn’t have Gase. What’s the point?

      If the Bears had done like I originally wanted, fire Fox and promote Gase, then maybe last year Cutler doesn’t flame out of the NFL (that’s right NO OTHER TEAM wanted him, even as a backup, until Tannehill’s knee exploded)

      But we saw Cutler w/out Gase (see Vikings/Bucs back to back).

      No thanks.

      Cutler landed in the ideal situation. With the OC that got the most out of him, dangerous WRs, a robust rungame, and a solid D which can keep games close so Cutler doesn’t have to be unleashed.

      All that being said, he’s always got a 4INT, 1F game ticking inside him week to week.

      Rather take my chances with our new Franchise.

      We all expected to lose the first 4 games anyways. Doesn’t matter if it was Hoyer, Glennon or Cutler.

      • BerwynBomber

        “NO OTHER TEAM wanted him, even as a backup, until Tannehill’s knee exploded”
        Not sure about that. It could have been that Cutler let the market know that he had no interest in being a back-up.
        Otherwise, agree with your post. Especially about Gase and MIA.
        The funny thing about MIA is you could honestly argue that Cutler is in a better situation there than two HoF QBs — Brees and Rodgers — are with their teams.

          Get real, both those guys have been in the same system for the VAST majority of their careers; an advantage that is immeasurable.

        • Irish Sweetness

          If no other team wanted Jay, I don’t see how that affects us keeping him for another year. Mitch would have had a definite period to learn, because Jay wouldn’t be this flaccid.

      • Joecashflow

        I like the way you think, Butch. Promoting the OC certainly was the right move for the Bucs, wasn’t it? And they handed us their jewel in Gannon. Thanks for that. Add that Bears coaching blunder to the heaping smoldering pile which includes passing on Arrands. I’ll take Gase any day.

        • I honestly thought maybe that was the plan all along. Get Fox in for a lil while. Let him right the ship mentally. Attract some FAs.

          Then promote the hot new OC Gase who squeezed the most out of Cutler and let Fox go fishing.

          Should’ve known better

      • Irish Sweetness

        So Jay wasn’t injured, and what we saw was a regression from 2015’s turnaround-Jay?

        I don’t buy it.

        Pace fucked up at the position. All over the place.

      I don’t know which is more unbelievable, that the current champ is 0-2 or that Waffle after spending $26 on Cutler is 2-0.

            haha, I think paying 26.00 for Cutler is the opposite of moneyball. With that being said, he’s going to the playoffs and possibly the AFC Championship.

      No. Jay is smart and knew how low the bar was.

  • willbest

    I have decided, that it will be a positive step if Sanchez is active for this game.

    • lol I remember on draft day I said all Glennon has to do is not go Full-Keenum lest the natives go restless.

      Well folks, Full-Keenum. Natives restless.

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        But Glennon was Ok in that one drive on that one game.

        • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

          lol

      • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

        I’m convinced that Glennon is going to go full Capt. Checkdown on us. Tom Waddle on ESPN mentioned how quickly Glennon is moving to his short checkdown route instead of pushing to see if the deep or even middle routes open up. He said that is a symptom of a QB with little confidence.

        • SC Dave

          And if he does, and we win, then what?

          • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

            Then we continue to clamor for real talent to play the position like other teams have.

      • SC Dave

        Keenum doe one fucking game.

        Patience, grasshopper.

  • Malice Halice

    We finna expose the Steelers bold play calling. I’m expecting 3ints, 5 sacks and a blocked field goal. Glennon will again throw for 300 yrds n 3TD and our dynamic duo will combine for 300 all-purpose yrds n 2 scores. Sunday our team will produce 40PTS! I can’t even remember the last time we scored 40 points.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      And I thought the shit I smoke was good, little did I know. You need to share whatever you are have.

      and the last time we scored 40 was Dec. 9, 2013

      • Malice Halice

        Yea it’s pretty good! So it’s been 4 years since! That’s just horrible man. We’re well PAST DUE for 40.

      • BerwynBomber

        A McCown game?

  • Hmmmmm…more evidence for my suspicion that lots of folks are walking around brain damaged….

    A study of deceased ex-Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez’s brain revealed a case of Stage 3 CTE.

    Stage 3 CTE is associated with “cognitive impairment and trouble with executive functions like planning and organizing.” Hernandez was one of the youngest ex-players to be diagnosed with the brain disorder, which is the result of repeated head trauma. Serving a life sentence for murder, Hernandez committed suicide in April. – Roto

    • SC Dave

      Fuck that horseshit.

      I’ll attribute the suicide to not wanting to be butt fucked.

      Hernandez was fucking garbage.

      • You mean that he was found to have stage 3 CTE?

        • SC Dave

          Don’t care. No excuse.

          And plenty cite “a study”. Once that’s said, there is never a question on the veracity of that “study”. The accusation is made, and the court of 3 second attention spans renders its verdict.

          In this case, perhaps, in favor of a piece of human refuse they attempt to rehabilitate as a fucking victim.

  • As Austin Powers says – come again? You can comeback from a torn pec?

    According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Bears ILB Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) may miss “just a few weeks.”

    Kwiatkoski’s torn pectoral was expected to be a season-ending injury but coach John Fox said the team has yet to make a final determination. Rapsheet conceded Kwiatkoski will “definitely miss
    time,” though there’s growing optimism he’ll only be sidelined for a handful of games. – Roto

      • BerwynBomber

        Tough to see Goodell and the owners as “victims” because of a lawsuit filed by the attorney of a dead guy who had advanced CTE.

        • Fact. The NFL tried to hide CTE for fear of losing profit which no doubt damaged numerous brains and lives unnecessarily. (See, Seau, Deurson, etc)

          Fact. Hernandez’ lawyers are $ grubbing vermin.

    Boys, I’m 2 weeks in on my NFL gambling odyssey and I’m already 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
    In theory I should be able to garner a 30% rate of return every week from week 2 through about week 14 before the schedule gets wonky with end of the year shenanigans. I will end up with 3500.00 or thereabouts.
    The true test of the size of my ball sack is next year when I start the year with the amount I end with this year. will I have the stones to place a 3500.00 bet on week 2 in order to grow to 4550.00? Or will I puss out and pay some tuition or renovate a bathroom?

    Or will I blow it all on the AFC Championship game with Cutty over the Pats?

        • EnderWiggin

          Maybe McVay can coach too. They seem a bit more creative that Fischer.

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    I would check Hoyers arm for cybernetic implants. No way can he throw the ball that far.

  • Hoya slinging it.

    • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

      Haha, worst coverage

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      HGH or steroids could be involved.

      • willbest

        He can get the “random” drug test that kickers get when they kick from 57+ yards.

      • baldness, side effect

    • EnderWiggin

      Had to have some balls to throw that too…

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        the Japanese are building some pretty convincing robots… they should probably check to make sure he is actually human

  • AlbertInTucson

    C’mon, 49ers. Keep it a ball game.

    • willbest

      They want their option of Cousins or Darnold. They aren’t going to do something crazy.

  • Ballsy throw. Hoya knew he was getting destroyed.

  • Wow. Taylor could’ve just stretched out.
    looked like he got knocked out

  • AlbertInTucson

    Run and Hyde, again, 9ers”

    • EnderWiggin

      hell yeah, three downs in a row.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      haha!

  • “9ers crowd getting into it.”

    All 20 of them

  • BerwynBomber

    For all the criticism TNF usually receives so far these have been entertaining scrums.

    KC vs. NE
    HOU vs. CIN
    LAR vs. SF

  • #daDestroya

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      robotically enhanced, with a new software upgrade from Silicon Valley.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Robbie makes his presence felt.

  • Malice Halice

    Gould as usual!

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      unless he is kicking to win a game for us.

  • EnderWiggin

    Is that the Celek that played with the Jets?

    • Irish Sweetness

      Brent was an Eagle, no?

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        thats what i thought too.

  • Good as swap meet gold!

    • EnderWiggin

      Lose by one is a Goulden destiny now.

      • Could you imagine. Clawing your way back in the game and losing cuz you have to convert a 2 point conversion cuz ur K missed a PAT? lol

        Oh, 9ers

  • BearDown100393

    Ugliest uniforms since Any Given Sunday.

    • EnderWiggin

      Crazy, we both brought up the uniforms at the same time.

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        awe, the beginning of a Bromance…

      • BearDown100393

        Fugly. The yellow is going to burn a hole in the television.

  • EnderWiggin

    70s style Rams helmet are my favorite NFL helmets ever, btw.

  • If 9ers lose, it’s likely cuz of that D.

    holy shit. They can’t stop the Rams.

    Rams an offensive juggernaut?

  • BearDown100393

    Amazing how a team can immediately improve when ridding itself from an incompetent coaching staff.

    • Malice Halice

      Ain’t that da truth

    • Gives me hope. In 18.

      • EnderWiggin

        Surely we can’t get shit staff three times in a row can we? (Hell, six in a row if you consider Lovie was shit)

        • Isn’t that what we said about INJs? Surely we can’t get ravaged by INJs three yrs in a row…
          Bears find a way to defy statistical probabilities.

  • AlbertInTucson

    9th inning. 2 out. 2 Strikes. Baez singles home the tying run for the Cubs.

    On a pitch that was almost in the dirt.

  • BearDown100393

    Roger Goodell must be on a mission to rescue bees.

  • Predicted Ender would beat Shady, but wow. Beating him like Drago beat Apollo.

    • EnderWiggin

      “If he dies, he dies.” ~Drago

      • BearDown100393

        – Jeff’s attitude toward starting Mitch against the Steelers

  • BearDown100393

    Dropping footballs is a west coast thing for Hoyer also.

  • Can’t drop balls in dink and dunk WCO. 9ers miss Taylor and Rice

  • Pulling for 9ers. Not just cuz of Hoya underdog, but cuz we’re gonna be battling them for draft position.

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    seriously… blood tests, x-rays, the whole works. Hoyer can’t throw the ball that far.

    • Malice Halice

      Ain’t see not of weebit of dat in Chicago!

      • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

        maybe it’s nanobots..

        • Malice Halice

          I’m sure blow is much better in SF than Chicago. That could b it

  • Let it rain!

    Destroya

  • BearDown100393

    Hoyer is on the anti-tank mission. Double Agent still working for the Bears.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Nice hands but, nicer gloves, too.

  • Destroya!

  • AlbertInTucson

    Chalk up another for tiny, white receivers!,

  • EnderWiggin

    Its like both teams are playing with our defense.

  • BearDown100393

    Send Bellamy that tape.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Whoops.

  • This is exactly what I envisioned the 9er being under Hoya.

    Took 3 games, but looking good.

    Man, wanted Garcon in FA too.

    Saw him play in WASH. He was always under rated.

  • BearDown100393

    I hope Cohen is taking notes.

  • Malice Halice

    Ok we got us a effin game fellas!

  • Destroya effect!

  • BearDown100393

    Jared Goff’s disinterest on the bench shows he doesn’t caaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeee

    • EnderWiggin

      Good things coming for the Rams.

      • BearDown100393

        Firing Fischer began the turnaround

  • AlbertInTucson

    Looks good to me.

    • BearDown100393

      If this call isn’t reversed, somebody in the stands is getting stabbed.

  • What a throw under pressure.

    • BearDown100393

      Makes Giraffe dizzy

  • AlbertInTucson

    That overhead shot seems conclusive that it is catch.

  • AlbertInTucson

    The 3rd challenge bonus!

    • BearDown100393

      Did Lovie ever get the 3rd challenge?

      • EnderWiggin

        He was in the NCAA by the time they made that rule.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Wow.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Dr. Jekyll falls down.

    Mr Hyde gets up.

  • BearDown100393

    49ers Turf
    – Proudly imported by the Chicago Park District

    • AlbertInTucson

      Their turf has sucked since they built that place.

      • BearDown100393

        That entire facility is an open air prison dump

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          built on a indian burial ground.

          • BearDown100393

            Pissed on by Jed York.

  • EnderWiggin

    Hoyer is pissing me off. Or maybe I’m pissed at Loggins. Hoyer has shown more balls tonight than he did all 7 games last season.

    • BearDown100393

      Bird Caged.

    • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

      He had 99 yds last week.

      • EnderWiggin

        I feel a little better now, thanks.

      • AlbertInTucson

        I heard the 9er broadcast on Sirius on the way home and they were lamenting how bad Hoyer had looked the first 2 weeks.

        • Irish Sweetness

          When did he ever look good?

          • EnderWiggin

            Tonight!

          • AlbertInTucson

            They were crying about him turning the ball over.

          • AlbertInTucson

            They were whining about the urnovers so far this season as opposed to his O into last year.

      • BerwynBomber

        He played at SEA last week.
        #context

        • willbest

          He was also garbage in week 1. He looked good against a bad team

  • BearDown100393

    Collinsworth just accused the entire NFL of loafing the 1st 4 games of its season.

    • AlbertInTucson

      But Tirico was doing the “NFL P.R. TAP DANCE”.

  • AlbertInTucson

    YES!

  • Malice Halice

    N THATS DA WAY DA COOKIE CRUMBLE!

  • Malice Halice

    Holy shit!

  • EnderWiggin

    This game may come back to Gould..

  • Are you KIDDING ME!

    A Gould onside KO recovery? lol

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      get him tested too.

  • BearDown100393

    Need more onside kicks.

  • AlbertInTucson

    In any case, I HAVE been entertained.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      yeah but you are old, you are used to being entertained by things like tiddlywinks. JK.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Sorry you weren’t entertained.

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          oh i am i just wanted to joke about your age.

          • Malice Halice

            Ta ta boom!

          • AlbertInTucson

            “Low-hanging fruit”.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            YES, lol – i want to make an old man balls joke but it’s too easy.

  • Ugh. Hoya got them into FG range.

    Penalty.

  • BearDown100393

    Hoyered

  • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

    Damn entertaining game.

    • AlbertInTucson

      ESPECIALLY on a Thursday.

  • Wow. WTF don’t you double Aaron Donald? dumb.

    4rth 20. meh

  • AlbertInTucson

    Meanwhile, players continue to drop like flies.

  • Suns Out, Buns out, Ciggy In

    That may have been the best onside kick I’ve ever seen. Necessary because of the very same man.

  • 9ers played with some pride at least.

    Trap game for Steelers?

    http://a.abcnews.com/images/Business/REX_weekend_at_bernies_kab_140129_16x9_992.jpg

  • After seeing Hoya chuck it deep numerous times, it begs the question.

    Is Birdcage turning cocks into cucks?

    https://i.pinimg.com/originals/09/f2/78/09f2789dfa4166af0bbc5ea35c582c5c.jpg

  • BerwynBomber

    I predicted in the preseason that LAR’s O and Goff would surprise and that Cousins would regress. Call it the Sean McVay Effect.

    If McVay can turn Cousins into a top 10 guy he can sure the hell make Goff look semi-competent.
