Week 15: Bears at Lions Game Preview

| December 14th, 2017

Why Do I Like the Chicago Bears This Week?

I always like the Chicago Bears. And yes, they may have fooled me last week. Again.


Poem

once more unto the breach, dear friends, he wrote

and so i do commit myself to battle

many know not to trust these capricious lads

many, like i, are merely cattle

so unto the breach i go, once more

believing, yes always believing

and surely you know, come saturday night

i shall, once again, be grieving


Five Thoughts on The Actual Game

  • Don’t look now but Jordan Howard is only 73 yards behind Le’Veon Bell in the race for the NFL rushing title. In their first meeting this season, Howard put 125 yards on the board and the Lions defense has actually gotten worse at stopping the run since. Just last week they allowed the Bucs, one of the league’s worst running teams, to average nearly 5 yards a carry. Could be a big Saturday afternoon for the unheralded Bears superstar.

  • Staying on the run game, don’t be surprised if the Lions don’t even bother with it this week. They are, by every conceivable metric, the league’s worst rush unit. And they’ve pretty much been that since Barry Sanders walked away from the game.
  • That would mean Matthew Stafford, the NFC’s most prolific passer, is going to drop back and sling it forty-plus times. The Bears will need to get far more pressure on Stafford than they got on Andy Dalton last weekend and I’m just not sure how they’re going to do that with their current collection of pass rushers.
  • This will be the first team Trubisky sees for the second time and – by definition – the first team to see Trubisky a second time. That’s a fascinating dynamic. What did he learn from attacking them the first time around? What did they learn about how to approach the rookie? Saturday’s performance will tell us a lot about far Trubisky and his offensive coaches have progressed.
  • The only way John Fox has any chance of returning in 2018 is to win out. (And it’s still a long shot at that point.) Jim Caldwell is rumored to be gone in Detroit if the team doesn’t make the playoffs. So here we are, one game, loser goes to the unemployment line. Can’t have higher stakes on the sidelines.

Tweet of the Week

The single most electrifying football player of my lifetime and it will be a disgrace when the selection committee keeps him out of the Hall of Fame.Β (Early next week, Data will have a deep dive into the statistics that quantify Hester’s greatness.)

Game Prediction

Shootout. Old school. And this time Trubisky doesn’t leave it up to a kicker at the death.

Chicago Bears 38

Detroit Lions 34

    I love Skunk, but the GOAT argument for HoF would mean that the previous GOAT (Brian Mitchell) s/would have been inducted as well… We need to overcome that argument.

    I view Peanut the same way. The dude created more takeaways (not just INT’s) for a DB with a skill he mastered (not to mention the fact that he owned Calvin Johnson).

    I want both enshrined!

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      Mitchell – 1070 total returns both kick and punt total TDs 14
      Hester – 610 total returns both kick and punt total TDs 20

      interesting thing Mitchell had 300-400 more attempts than the other top 5 returners(based on total TDs). Hester, Dante Hall, Josh Cribbs, Eric Metcalf.

      • SC Dave

        As I wrote in the other thread, Brian Mitchell is #2 all time in “All Purpose Yards” with only Jerry Rice ahead, and that is the number that I think should have caused serious consideration for his inclusion in Canton.

    • CanadaBear

      I think Devin gets in. I like SCDave’s analysis of Mitchell. I don’t think Peanut gets in. I’d love to see both Devin and Peanut in.

      • Dis Guy Trublinsky

        If they could somehow factor player character in for a fringe guy like Tillman, he’d be a shoe in.

        • SC Dave

          I wonder if they do. It may well matter.

          • CanadaBear

            I think it matters more if someone is a real turd.

          • SC Dave

            Legit, that.

  • SC Dave

    I was surprised how articulate that Hester letter is. Makes me wonder whether he wrote it or not. It’s possible I suppose – some people are far better at crafting words when writing than speaking. Most people I suppose.

    But I was struck by it.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      I thought the same thing. I figured his agent helped.

      • CanadaBear

        Of course he did. That’s one of the reasons you pay them.

  • SC Dave

    Interesting final point, Jeff. I suppose if we lose Saturday we’ll never know whether Fox would have made it by winning out. Of course, if he stays *despite* losing to the Lions…

  • Big Mike

    Ready to have my Bears hopes and dreams crushed again this week. For the last 5-6 years, every time the team is in position to take a step up to the next level, they crap their pants. This Detroit game has so much more meaning than it should for a 4-9 team. Bear the Fuck Down.

    • leftcoastdave

      BTFD. Yea, I like that. BTFD.

  • chitownproud85

    *read, scroll, read, scroll, read Jeff predicting Bears put up 38 this week, die*

    We are back on the sauce here at Da Bears Blog folks, prepare for a brutal hangover.

    That being said…Bears 24, “Loins” 23 because fuck the Loins and the Bears force field goals instead of giving up TDs. LETS GO BOYS

  • Bobby Douglass

    Hester was just electrifying. Mitchell was workmanlike. Both deserve recognition. Why doesn’t anyone talk about my 1972 season?

    • SC Dave

      Because your passing was terrible, the team was 4-9-1, and Abe Gibron was the coach.

      • Bobby Douglass

        Your words hurt. πŸ˜‰

        • SC Dave

          Eight rushing TDs tho… SOLID!

          • Bobby Douglass

            968 rushing yards! It doesn’t list how many WRs hands I broke as I had no touch,

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            It does list the 9 fumbles you had.

          • CanadaBear

            Could you imagine if the refs treated him like QB’s these days? A few of those DB’s would let up so they wouldn’t get a penalty and Bobby would have fucking flattened them. Tough bastard for sure!

    Our father who art in Chicago,
    Halas be thy name,

    Thy play will be run,
    At home as it is away,
    Give us this day our Sunday win,
    And forgive us our turnovers,
    Thought we pounce on those who turnover against us,
    And lead us not not into fourth & long,
    In the name of Staley, Payton & DA Holy Coach,
    As it was win 1985,
    so shall it be in 2018 without end,
    For ever and ever

      We play Saturday

      • Bear Instincts

        dvr and watch it again on sunday

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          genius!

    • chitownproud85

      so this is getting saved. +10

    • Irish Sweetness

      HALLELUJAH!

  • DaCoaches Mustache

    This team has a habit of giving the fans a glimmer of hope one week, and then shooting molten hot streams of liquid shit at us the next. Hopefully they can manage to tighen the ole sphincter up this week.

    • Scharfinator

      Excellent metaphor.

  • Sactowns#1

    I think the Bears D will have a spark this week that was missing in the first game vs the lions. That spark is named Danny T.

    • BearDown100393

      If he is healthy

  • CanadaBear

    I’ve got to agree with Da Coach and Big Mike, whenever you expect the Bears to take the next step they stumble. Maybe this will be The Step! Who knows? The injury report from yesterday was good so let’s hope Eddie is back and Stafford is on his back.

    • BearDown100393

      Saturday will indicate which way the wind blows

  • CanadaBear
    • Sactowns#1

      Surprised to see so many Washington Racists on the list. Sitton and no Long eh? Interesting.

      • BerwynBomber

        The Foreskins area a talented team. You watch them for a game or two and wonder why they are a 5-8 club.

        MIA is a little bit like that on the AFC side.

  • Tortured Bear fan

    “Saturday’s performance will tell us a lot about far Trubisky and his offensive coaches have progressed”… Really!!?? Do you think Fox and the current couching staff still have a chance to back next year? really!!?? (in Mora’s tone)

  • TomC

    I have been watching the Bears for 30+ years and was an excitable teenager during the ’85 season. And yet, the moment that brought me the most insane immediate joy during those 30+ years was that opening KO return in SB 41. I was jumping up and down and howling like a banshee and hugging everyone I could find in the bar. Thank you, Devin, for that and every other electrifying moment.

    Edit: Jesus Christ, I’m a professional scientist and I can’t do simple arithmetic. FORTY-plus years, not 30.

    • SC Dave

      In one of the last lucid momemts I shared with the Mrs., she asked me if the Bears had won the Super Bowl.

      I couldn’t lie to her, so I said “its next week, baby”. She died on Wednesday.

      So Sunday comes around, and I’m hoping the Bears will shine some light into my gloom.

      Hester. Miracle.

      In the end, the defense could not adjust to Manning passes to RBs, and the offense chose to omit Thomas Jones in the second half.

      So the best case was not to be.

      But that return… well, it was pretty special to me too, Tom. I still like to think Laurie influenced a block in there somewhere.

      • Dis Guy Trublinsky

        Ugh. Painful memories in there I’m sure.

      • evantonio

    • Irish Sweetness

      Ah yes, Tom! Devin was involved in two special moments for me – the SB return, and the Arizona miracle. I signed myself out of hospital to see the Superbowl (after a motorcycle crash), signed back in the next day. It was worth it just to see the kickoff.

  • BerwynBomber

    “Staying on the run game, don’t be surprised if the Lions don’t even bother with it this week. They are, by every conceivable metric, the league’s worst rush unit. And they’ve pretty much been that since Barry Sanders walked away from the game.”

    Technically, they were a good run team in ’14. They had a nice three-headed rushing attack in Joique Bell (basher), Reggie Bush (outside threat) and Theo Riddick (3rd down receiver). And yes, once upon a time Joique Bell was productive for a year or two in the league.

    But yes their current run game is anemic. Both Abdullah and Washington suck (thought Riddick and Zenner are good 3rd down guys). DET would be smart to draft an RB in the first three rounds in May. Would be a huge help to Pie Face and Cooter.

    • SC Dave

      Well, the Bears have added 1.1 YPC to Ty Montgomery’s career numbers, so there’s that.

      • BerwynBomber

        And lest you forget we also played a significant role in Brett Hundley being 3-4 as a starter. The same Brett Hundley with the 1:1 TD/INT ratio, 78 passer rating and average team around him.

      • SC Dave

        There is no spin. Just crony capitalism at work.

        And sac, the fact that I recognize reality does not make me a fan.

        Your only defense is to recognize the winners and buy their stock.

    • Russian Hacked Pacebot 3.0

      What’s net neutrality?

      • evantonio

        think of it as neutrality of the net.

      • BearDown100393

        Sort of like expecting both teams getting equal calls in a NFL game. But now it is like Bears vs Any Opponent. The Bears get all the penalties and “Any Opponent” gets no flags. So “Any Opponent” wins.

        Poor people wanting to use the Internet are the Bears.

      • Cormonster

        Net neutrality is passing a bunch of regulations and hiring a bunch of bureaucrats to make the internet work better. That’s how innovation and progress works.

        • evantonio

          Just so I’m reading clearly, you don’t think its repeal will have any adverse affect on the 83% of the general population who wanted those pesky “you can’t charge for access” regulations to stay in place?

          • Cormonster

            I think giving the FCC powers over the internet will inevitably lead to more harm than good, and it certainly won’t lead to “neutrality”, whatever that term means. The feds always end up picking winners and losers and fucking shit up. It’s what they do. I say let the FTC handle any issues that arise on a case by case basis like the olden days of 2 years ago.

    • All these ppl complain about their suck ass cable and not having options because of the ‘unofficial’ cable monopolies.

      Just wait till that model gets applied to their internet.

    • Sactowns#1

      None. It will be eliminated and replaced with the CBS Sports/ ESPN/ Disney blog network.

    • SC Dave

      You didn’t really expect different other than the big money winning?

      • evantonio

        Not with this group in charge, no.

        • SC Dave

          LOL… Oh please… what group in your lifetime would have done differently?

          • evantonio

            the previous group that put the rules in place saying that Breitbart had to be treated the same as the NY Times?

    Saturday will damn near be a full day of NFL TV viewing. Bears/DET as the early game followed by what should be a cracker between SD/KC.

    • BearDown100393

      SD?

      • BerwynBomber

        Chargers, sorry …

        The LA thing comes naturally to me with the Rams. Not so much the Chargers.

          • SC Dave

            It would suck to have the team you’ve had for a lifetime just move away.

            Imagine all the 30+ year Colts fans when they left Baltimore.

            At least they made the Browns change their name to Ravens.

        • BearDown100393

          Oh right…. the Chargers.

          The powder blue belong in San Diego.

          Terrible relocate.

          I can see the Chargers relocating again in a few years to somewhere where someone might actually give a damn…or at least have ownership weasel their way to another new stadium nearby.

          • Having the Chargers here is weird.

            It would be like the Colts relocating to Chicago

            It’s geographically close but just feels wrong.

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    HAHAHAHA!!!!

    New Browns GM, stated that the old GM did not get ‘real players’. I bet that does not make the current roster feel very good.

    • BearDown100393

      Is he wrong?

    • CanadaBear

      Kinda like Fangio saying Emery’s picks didn’t fit a 3-4 or a 4-3.

      • BearDown100393

        Emery rebuilt the Bears into his vision of Apollo 13 as a football roster.

        • CanadaBear

          Still too soon.

      • SC Dave

        I believe it was
        “this team wasn’t built for anything”

    • CanadaBear

      If Dorsey is on point the next two years Cle could actually turn the corner and be halfway decent. Man, he’s got a boatload of picks!

  • CanadaBear
    • SC Dave

      Agreed. I’ve been happy with Adam’s progress overall.

      Actually, the 8 more catches with another TD by end of season should be exceeded. And that would make him the 5th rookie TE in 10 years to get 20 catches and 4 TD.

      I have only casually watched his blocking, but my impression is that bad plays are slowly ramping down and good plays are slowly ramping up.

      For what it’s worth, the staff seems pleased.

    • BearDown100393

      Showing potential. Needs more throws.

    • I think I predicted he’d have a Maxx Williams type rookie campaign roughly 32 receptions, 300 yds and 2 Tds.

      Maxx Williams was also a 2nd RDer and was 3rd in depth chart

      So far, Saheen is on par 12 recs 127yds 3 TDs.

      He got less targets because I didn’t expect the O to be so scared of passing, but Miller went down, so now he has more reps, so balances out more or less.

  • Viva Dave Toub

    FireFox

    • CanadaBear

      If he ever gets the opportunity I will be really surprised if he isn’t a successful HC. Football is all about coaching and relationships.

      I was just thinking what a marquee matchup this is.

      • Scharfinator

        Lol

  • BerwynBomber

    So the Sky-Cam Game, eh?

    NOT a huge fan. Works okay on kickoffs, FGs and PATs and occasionally different replay angles, but that is about it.

    Don’t get too cute NFL and network partners.

    That traditional horizontal LoS angle is in no small measure why the NFL has become a TV ratings giant the last forty or fifty years.

  • Mingo ate ur baby is the bust ppl feared Floyd would become (and Dion Jordan)

    So far, Floyd has avoided that fate.

    • Scharfinator

      Health has been a minor question mark, but he’s certainly played well enough when he is out there.

  • Surprised McManis has struggled so. He’s normally a solid K.

    Yips.

  • Scharfinator

    I wonder if the reports about Luck’s shoulder are really true. You know the reports, the worst case scenario, where he never plays again.

    How badly would you hate Chuck Pagano as a Colt’s fan? Ruin a team AND a young man’s career? Fuuuuck

  • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

    Dear NFL and Broadcasting partners,
    Please get rid of the Skycam camera angle for live action. It is fine for replays but for live action please don’t.

    • BerwynBomber

      Yup. Said the same below.

      It seems “halfway” okay for kickoffs, FGs and PATs. But for LoS stuff it sucks compared to the traditional angle.

      I think the NBA tried this same thing a few years ago. Didn’t take. Hopefully won’t in the NFL either.

  • BuddhaJoe

    When did Bostic end up on the Colts? I had no idea. Only watching on and off because my friend is a Broncos fan and I want to give them shit if they lose.

    • I think he’s been their starter all yr.

      • SC Dave

        I think so too. And we thought WE had problems!

        • lol that was my EXACT thought when I saw him out there tonight.

          • EnderWiggin

            It is weird. Bostic not only calls the plays in Indy, he is also the leader on defense that everyone looks up to, and the guy the coaches point to as an example. Weird stuff.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            He spent time with Darth Hoodie last year or the year before. Turning to the Dark side has brought him strength.

    • BerwynBomber

      Is it his fourth team? NE? DET?

  • Dis Guy Trublinsky

    And down goes Russell Simmons.

    I am not at all surprised that rape, sexual harassment and other such lewd conduct is part of the music, tv and movie industries. But I gotta say I’m shocked at the depth and breadth of it.

    It’ll be interesting to hear how all of this is intertwined and fueling itself one day. Accusations have made their way to the front before, but this is a different animal altogether.

    • BerwynBomber

      It’s reaching into sports now too.

      Both NFL network and ESPN have suspended some ex-players. And the four letter also had one of their anchors and fantasy football experts named in a lawsuit today.

    • I think EVERY somewhat porkable girl has a story.

      Unfortunately I know too many women with such stories. One girl got discharged for essentially not giving it up to her bosses in the navy. They took her through the ringer cuz they were trying to cover their own asses.

      I know TWO girls who were in the punk scene who essentially got raped.

      We all know the church stories.

      No field or institution is really insulated from harassment.

        And fat girls, Butch. Most of them are probably fat because of over-eating because of abuse. Think about it. What makes a person eat so much that they literally blow up? It takes serious effort and calories to get fat.

        All those Emo chicks? The piercings? The Miley Cyrus type sex rebels? Fingered by daddy. Fucked by Uncle Ray. People are open books

      I am not in the slightest surprised. Entertainers live in a fantasy world, and always have.

      Music, tv and movies? Isn’t it just … men? Men are scumbags. Just ask any woman. We like to put ourselves up on pedestals and point to moon landings and such like …. but we have wars, and rape, and Pol Pot.

      • The sword that saves the man, slays the man.

        I don’t think our reptilian brain has evolved fast enough to conform to our modern moral code.

        “We are born with sin”

        maybe that simply means we are born with a biologic predisposition for violence, avarice, sloth, lust, greed…

        And we must struggle individually with these impulses, and it doesn’g go in a straight line like in the movies.

        Not all of us were born with silver spoons, dressed in yellow onsies, and raised by feminist moms and hippie dads…

          So basically you are saying we are just like almost every other animal, with tribal instincts?

          • we might be worse because we tend to use logic, passion and imagination, qualities animals lack. to amplify and execute our “baser” instincts.

            I can just imagine the first caveman who discovered fire.

            “Oonga boonga. Fire!”

            then used it to impress a chick to get laid, or to set his enemy on fire.

            (or both)

          • Irish Sweetness

            We are worse. You don’t see otters developing nuclear weapons to blow up badgers with.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Absolutely we are, would anyone here disagree with that?

            How many thousands of years ago were we living up trees? And that version of us crawled out of the sea once upon a time. How sophisticated can you get in the blink of an eye?

            What happened was Victorian society, which was adopted in North America from your British conquereors, and still prevails to this day at the higher levels of society. We, as men, are designed and programmed to fuck anything that moves, impregnate it, render it useless to anyone else, and move on. Butch or MB on a Friday night basically.

            Dawkins calls us a bag of water surrounding a DNA-replication machine. Our DNA – he argues – runs our ‘machine’, not the brain/soul/consciousness/whatever. We live to replicate our DNA and for no other reason. Sitting around smoking Gitanes and discussing Dostoyevsky is all brain-illusion, it’s not why we’re here. We’re here to fuck.

            How that all relates to wanking into flowerpots I don’t know yet.

          • Cormonster

            Funny last line. I tend to agree for the most part. It’s why I have a problem with most socialist / utopian political philosophies, because they never take into account human nature.

    FF:
    Butch – why are you Tightendless? I also can;t figure out why you two are so close in points, yet 4ever is predicted to win by so much. We’ll watch that game closely this week (I think the winner of that match will win it all).

    • Ugh. Ertz was scratched last minute. I had the Cards TE, but that game started already, so I was basically fucked at TE, which was made worse by other Eagle TEs scoring THREE TDs.

      Two of those would def have gone to Ertz. Oh well.

      Also, I’m prejected to blow Artoo out of the water for 2 reasons.

      1. Gore (who scored like 30 last week) only got 10 points and Thomas got 8 points for Artoo tonight.

      That’s not horrible, but it’s on the low side, especially when you consider I have Michael Thomas and Howard going against them this week. Both are in good matchups and projected to have good weeks.

      2. I have great matchups across the board.

      Artoo had great matchups last week, which is why he’s even still alive (and I freaking left like 40 points on the bench), but this week my guys have more favorable matchups.

      Never know. Howard had a great match up vs 9ers, and didn’t do squat, but I’m guessing the consensus is I would win 8/10 times this week.

      Also, don’t sleep on Bears 505.

      Of everyone this season, he’s thought most like me, so it might be like shadow boxing.
