Week 8: Bears at Saints Game Preview

| October 26th, 2017

Why Do I Like the Chicago Bears This Week?

I always like the Chicago Bears. And they’re going for three straight and .500 at the bye! What’s not to like?


Hey Bears, Play Offense on Sunday

John Fox and Dowell Loggains need to walk into the Superdome Sunday assuming the Saints are going to score in the 20s. Why? Because the Saints always score in the 20s. We’re talking about a team, playing at home, that is:

  • 4th in points and yards per game.
  • 10th in rushing yards per game.
  • 3rd in passing yards per game.
  • Least sacked team in the entire NFL, allowing only 5, and they’ve played the Minnesota (ranked 4th), Carolina (ranked 3rd) and Miami (ranked 10th) defenses this season.

If Fox/Loggains operate the same offensive mathematical equation…

(Run for 2 + Run for 1) x [3rd-and-7 Throw Under Obvious Pressure] = Success?

…they’ll find themselves chasing the game. And the Bears are NOT built to chase any game.


Tweet of the Week


Three Reasons the Bears Win

  • Saints have one of the most balanced offenses in the league but the Bears can render an opponent one-dimensional with their suffocating run defense. There isn’t a pair of interior defensive linemen in the league playing to the standard of Hicks and Goldman and Sunday the Bears held Carolina backs to 21 carries, 58 yards – a staggering 2.76 yards per. If Bears can force Brees to drop back every down, they’ll get to him.
  • On the flip side, the Bears should be able to line up and run the ball on a New Orleans defense allowing 4.9 yards per carry. Green Bay QB Brett Hundley couldn’t play Sunday – it was obvious to anyone watching – and Dennis Allen’s Saints defense still allowed Aaron Jones to go 17-131-1. This kept the game competitive into the fourth quarter. So just because they know you wanna run it doesn’t mean they can stop you.

  • Tarik Cohen on turf. Dowell Loggains clearly spends more time designing plays for Cohen than any other player on the roster. Technically, I can’t prove the Bears have spent any time designing offensive plays for any other player, including their quarterback. Mitch Trubisky seems most confident throwing it up to Wee ‘Rik and allowing him to make a play on the ball. On turf, isolated against these linebackers, Cohen should have a chance for a big afternoon.


Three Reasons They Don’t

  • If John Fox waits to start throwing the football until he HAS to – down two scores late in the fourth quarter – it will be too late. And we have no reason, no historical data, that proves Fox will acknowledge the Saints are going to score points and open things up early.
  • Saints operate the most dynamic screen game in the sport and in rookie Alvin Kamara have found the perfect back for Sean Payton’s system. He’s averaging 6.3 yards a carry and 7.5 yards a reception. Bears pass rush has been excellent but their edge guys tend to be a bit undisciplined. Expect the Saints to exploit that lack of discipline.
  • Four teams in the league have five or less turnovers on the season. New England and New Orleans have 5, Buffalo 3 and Kansas City 1. Those teams are a combined 20-8. (Football! It ain’t that complicated, folks!) The Bears are on a two-game winning streak for one reason and one reason only: turnovers. If the Saints stick to their script, the Bears aren’t getting any.

My Favorite Thing About NOLA

Chicago is my favorite city in America. But New Orleans is where I’d spend the last twenty-four hours before being turning myself in to the sheriff. It is impossible to pick a favorite thing about this remarkable city – the music on Frenchmen, the fried shrimp po’ boy at Verdi Marte, the balcony of the Chateau Hotel, everything about the Napoleon House, Algiers – but I’ll run Willie Mae’s fried chicken against any meal on the planet.


Bet You Didn’t Know

Mitch Trubisky’s 70-yard pass play to Tarik Cohen is longer – by a significant margin – than any Drew Brees completion this season.


Don’t Be Surprised If…

…the Saints score a touchdown on their first possession. The Bears defense is flying high and reading scores of positive headlines all across Chicagoland. (The national media was far more interested in Trubisky throwing seven passes than the dominant defensive effort.) For the first time in a long time the “Monsters of the Midway” have a reason to have the right to use the label. Would it really surprise you if they come out over-confident and Brees dices them up on an opening drive? Not me.


Video of the Week

I believe Norm MacDonald Live is the funniest talk show in the history of man. And this season has been the best so far. Here’s a recent episode with the loopy Jim Carrey.


Saints-Related Links!

  • From Joel A. Erickson of the New Orleans Advocate: “The great pass rushers all have a signature move, an attack so distinctive and so devastating that offensive linemen know it’s coming and remain powerless to stop it…Cameron Jordan has California Cool.” This is a fun piece on the club’s leading rusher.
  • Sean Payton promised a gift to all of his players if they secured their fourth win of the season in Green Bay: pedicures. (Men getting pedicures will always befuddle me.)
  • Saints will be without starting right guard Larry Warford for an extended period of time after suffering an abdominal injury. You don’t want to lose your best guard with Hicks & Goldman coming to town.
  • This NFL.com column on Saints WR Michael Thomas was written last week but this sentence should tell you how important he is to their offense: “Thomas is 13th among NFL receivers in targets and owns a 23.8 percent target market share in the Saints offense which a pass-heavy team with Drew Brees averaging 36 pass attempts per game.”

Game Prediction

Saints will score. They’re arguably the conference’s best offense and they’re at home. The Bears defense can play WELL and still allow 24 points. Can the Bears score more? Yes.

Chicago Bears 27

New Orleans 24

    1. The dust settles on a fine acquisition by young master Pace.

    Last week’s game and the subsequent worries about the offense seem so far away now.

    Perhaps the Deonte thing is now more understandable. He’s not as young as McBride/Gentry, and we have nothing but six-footers. Pace likely had been doing his due diligence on Inman for some time (but why not airlock Wheaton then?). He’s just making the WR roster younger where possible – I’d still have like him around though. Will doesn’t seem to think we’ll have an NFL-Caliber WR roster next year, but I think we’d be fine even standing pat. I’ve seen SB rosters not as strong as thatm(when we’re all healthy). Mitch will raise everyone’s floor anyway.

    I like the idea of not having a true #1. Cam could get it. Dontrelle .. .Cohen! How has OBJ done this year? How much is he helping his team from the sideline? Julio Jones? Putting all your eggs in one basket isn’t smart. Injuries happen. If we have a bunch of guys who are good enough, then we’re covered for the injury bug. Cam is very good. Inman is obviously very good. Kendall is a nice slot. And Kevin was obviously good in college and hasn’t really had a go of it. Bellamy is a WR 4/5. Let Gentry and McBride show if they have anything. Shaheen is developing. Cohen is a lethal target. I’m pumped!

    Well done Ryan. You have passed probation. Upgrade the OL in the draft now … and go get that Lombardi.

    2. The mystery of not throwing screens to Tarik may be solved.

    Watching NFL Network. Ray Lewis dropping logic bombs. They’re discussing the defensive jamboree this week in the NFL. Esiason is throwing pencils saying it’s all just a talking point from a producer … look at the scores in the other games .. yada yada. Lewis goes into a thing about how he used to snuff out screens, and that with all the ipads and tablets on the sidelines now, offenses can’t come out and show the same stuff twice. Technology has caught up with offenses. This gives credence to the idea that Fox wasn’t showing anyone anything offensively once we went up two scores.

    OCs need to be more inventive they say? No. Why can’t you show one formation, then say run left off that. Then show the identical formation again, but run play-action right? OCs need to be scientific and distribute plays and runs off the SAME formations. That requires logic, not invention. Cover the statistics.

    Are you telling me if you have some form of an I-formation, run the ball .. .that the defense knows what’s coming next time you go into that formation? WHY?? Just pass it the next time. Run different kinds of plays using the same formation. Football, as we all know, is not rocket science. If you’re calling the same kind of play from the same formation all the time, you deserve to get stuffed.

    But this is the time of defenses. Technology.

    (Ray Lewis is a LARGE individual)

    • DaCoaches Mustache

      So, in conclusion the receivers are fine, but the o line needs work? Send me some of your crack Irish. I’ve never smoked Irish crack….

      • Irish Sweetness

        I do seem to be on my own there. I’ve never bought into Leno as a LT, and Massie is a backup. Pace will fix the line. I trust him now. And if he can bag Martavis before the deadline ….ho hooooo.

        • leftcoastdave

          Leno and Massie are both amazingly adequate and getting better each week. I also expect Pace to draft a potential LT stud to bring along, depending upon the value he sees out there in the draft. Would not be surprised for him to find gold in the fourth or fifth, again.

  • Irish Sweetness

    If Fox/Loggains operate the same offensive mathematical equation…
    (Run for 2 + Run for 1) x [3rd-and-7 Throw Under Obvious Pressure] = Success?
    …they’ll find themselves chasing the game. And the Bears are NOT built to chase any game.

    So this. And as you say, if the Saints go ahead early and we shit the bed a bit, we’ll see the offense open up.

    Stat-O-Matic:

    Do we have a top run defense though? Bit of a mirage there.

    Total rushing per game? We allow 105 YPG (11th) …. Eagles lead with 67 YPG allowed.

    Average rush allowed? We’re mid-table on 4.0 (16th). Cleveland lead the league at only allowing 3.0 YPC along with Denver.

    Worst rush defense in the league? Sacksonville! By some way at 5.2 YPC. So we’re not exactly an iron wall when it comes to stopping the run. At all.

    Passing D? Respectable joint-5th with Denver – 6.4 YPP (JAX and PIT lead with 5.6 allowed)

    Sacks? Not bad. Joint 6th on 21, JAX have 33!

    Passes defensed? Joint 18th (33) … JAX and BUF have 50.

    Interceptions? Not so good. Joint-21st on 4 (JAX and BAL on 10)

    Forced Fumbles? Not so good. We are also joint-21st on 4 … HOU/DAL/JAX/NO all have 9

    So we’re not a top run defense. We don’t allow a lot of yards through the air, but we don’t take it away either.

  • RedBulls83

    Ideally you like to see a 50/50 pass/run offense at some point this season, which would be a huge step from a 80/20 run/pass.

    • Irish Sweetness

      I wouldn’t mind 55 or 60, just as long as we’re not emailing our calls to the league.
      All that rushing is affecting our PPG. We’re 26th in the league with 17 points a game.
      A run-heavy offense that works is probably 55% run.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Early morning stateside RedBull – where are you?

      • RedBulls83

        I’m in Chicago. I just have weird sleeping patterns sometimes, so I ended up waking up at 5 today.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Cool! The mothership! I’m going to bed about 5 am these days, but back to work on Monday. The game is at midnight and I’ll be up for work about 5.30 so Monday will be rough ….

          • go to bed early on Sunday (like 5-6 pm), wake up at midnight to start your day.

            It’s not ideal, but I’ve done that before when I have to start my day super early like that.

          • CanadaBear

            Unless you have a sleep aid, I’m guessing you’re not falling asleep right away at 5-6 PM. After 35 years of rotating shifts, I vowed to never stay up all night again. So far, so good.

          • Irish Sweetness

            I did rotating shifts for 3 months in Germany C-Bear, nearly killed me.

          • CanadaBear

            I loved it when I was young. After 40 it was a bitch. By 60, I had a great paying job, nice co-workers, a good company and I hated everything about it. I had to retire at 62. I couldn’t handle it anymore and I was hating life.

          • Irish Sweetness

            It’ll have to be something like that Woodsy. I had a nice job at a uni where I didn’t have to do much for a couple of years, so I could go to work on not much sleep.

            Boys school now, so I have to be at least semi-conscious. Cannot miss this game.

          • RedBulls83

            You’re a true fan! I always have respect for the diehards that live outside the country and still watch their teams at odd hours. I always wonder if I’d be able to do that if I had to.

          • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

            I feel for your neighbors. I am picturing Irish wearing a Payton Jersey screaming at the game till the early hours of the morning. “WTH BLITZ, BLITZ, BLITZ, BLITZ!!! FANGIO YOU F’N IDIOT!!!!” “WE SHOULD HAVE DRAFTED 3 MORE RBS!!!” “WE HAVE GREAT WR WHY AREN’T YOU THROWING IT!!!” “MCMAHON WOULD HAVE CHANGED THE PLAY!!!” etc…

          • Irish Sweetness

            Watch them on my own, so not so much. But when we beat Arizona in the miracle game I was listening to the radio broadcast. I actually did jump around the house screaming – I’m sure the neighbors were wondering WTF was going on in the foreigner’s house then. And that was about ten in the morning. They hated me anyway, it was party central back then.

  • Chicago’s offense has yet to top 17 points in regulation this year. (They got 23 against PIT, but last 6 in OT, and the 27 against BAL featured 7 by ST and 7 by the D, plus 3 in OT).

    I don’t think Bears get into the 20s here, and I don’t think they can keep NO below 20. Like Jeff outlined above, I don’t think the D will be able to score in this one, so I’m gonna say NO wins 27-17.

    One big thing that worries me here is pre-snap penalties. The dome in NO gets super loud, and I think the OL picks up a few too many false starts to consistently put the Bears behind the chains.

    • chitownproud85

      Hate it, but yes, this. Not sure Biscuit and the offense just “get it” in the dome and start putting up points. This is a tough one after two wins, on the road, with the bye looming. Feels like a built in reality check by the football gods right before the bye week. However, nothing is a lock, thats why they play the games. BEAR DOWN! .500 is within reach! #BearVoodoo #WereGoingToWinAnyway

      • One thing I’m looking forward to is that it seems very likely they’re going to have to let Trubisky throw regularly at some point in this game. That should give us a better evaluation of where he’s at.

        • Bear Instincts

          What have you seen to make you believe throwing regularly will be part of the game plan that Fox comes up with?

          • Irish Sweetness

            CHI 0-14 NO

            Then we’ll see.

          • leftcoastdave

            Fox will break out the plays he believes he needs to win. Throwing will be necessary to keep the Aints honest. Fox is no idiot, he plays to WIN. If that means pulling back into a shell to protect the ball and keep your hand hidden for then next game, so be it. Let the armchair coaches fuss and fume all they want. Fox is about winning not just one game, but for the rest of the season all the way into the playoffs.

          • it won’t be. But it will be necessary when NO inevitably gets a decent-sized lead late in the game. NO is scoring in the 20s even if CHI D plays really well, and they’re also not handing CHI D 14 points.

        • Scharfinator

          How much of a factor will Inman play? I wonder if he will have enough time to learn the plays.

          • Bender McLugh

            I would not expect much

          • Yeah. One week w new playbook likely going silent count.
            They should at least try one bomb w him though.

    • Bear Instincts

      A team like NO has always been my concern with depending on the defense to win games. If MT10 and the offense had been getting game time rep to move the ball down the field and score then it might not be so bad if we lose to NO.

      We cant depend on the defense to win every game. Being a one dimensional team wont get it done. A team balanced on both sides of the ball will kick our ass no matter how dominant our defense is.

      A loss in this game will bring the Kool Aide drinkers back to earth but I hope we kick NO’s ass.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Disagree with the last sentence, Bear. I EXPECT to lose this game … and go to the playoffs .The Eagles will beat us too.

        • Bear Instincts

          Its not about losing. Its about the reason we might lose. If we lose it will be because the offense did not do its part. The defense will bring its a game.

          • Irish Sweetness

            I suppose they start Dontrelle?

    • Tortured Bear fan

      pre-snap penalties is one, of many issues, that has hampered offense. IDK why it happens specially when they have a long gain the previous down.

    • willbest

      That is a trend that goes back to last season incidentally. The offense has been awful since Gase left.

  • That Guy

    That Guy’s Two Things:

    1) Expect NO to run around the end opposite Floyd. They’re going to make Lenny chase every frickin’ running play to tire out his pass rush. Plus, who’s on the other side? They’ll double Floyd in pass pro, because what other edge rusher can the Bearfs rely on?

    2) New Orleans is a pit. A below-sea-level, mosquito-infested pit of offal. The food? If you don’t like shrimp or… crawdads, it’s all pedestrian fare. The drinking? Buncha tourists getting drunk and puking in streets laid out 200+ years ago (think: bad sewerage). The debauchery? Please, I’m not 18. New Orleans is the most overrated city in the country. We should’ve left it depopulated after Katrina and just turned the French Quarter into Adult Disneyland, complete with shots for every visitor.

    • SC Dave

      The one time I went to New Orleans was during Mardi Gras. So I probably saw it at its worst, but I likewise left unimpressed. Although it seems my experience was not quite as bad as yours. Maybe because I was in my late 20s then…

    • CanadaBear

      Greatest musical city in the country. Other than that, one of the most dangerous.

      • Willie

        I was in New Orleans 2 weeks ago for a conference (the day after Nate “arrived”). I’d been once before when I was 15, but this was my first (and third) time on Bourbon Street.

        Bourbon Street one night is more than enough. Three nights is three too many. It was 90 degrees in October, which is fine in Tucson, but a terrible scenario for walking and drinking and walking and drinking and going back to pick your balls off the sidewalk and tuck them back in your shorts and walking some more. My sack still hasn’t returned to it’s original dimensions, and my long ball having ass wears briefs for this reason alone. Swamp city.

        Go for the beignets and turn right the fuck around. New Orleans is no place to spend more than a night. Plus, I’ve walked around pre-gentrified Brooklyn by myself after midnight and felt less in danger than a 11pm stroll on Bourbon Street with a group of 4 dudes.

        And if you ever do make the mistake of showing up – you got your shoes on your feet, you spell your last name “y-o-u-r-l-a-s-t-n-a-m-e”, and your grand daddy didn’t have any kids, your grandma had ’em all. If they spray some shit on your shoes just keep fucking walking. They don’t take $2 donations lightly. Fuck you to every Dan the Shoe Shine Man out there.

        • CanadaBear

          Totally get it. It’s still the best musical city in the US. It was crazy dangerous before Katrina, I’m sure it’s worse now. The Jazz and Heritage Festival is incredible if you like the music (what’s not to like?).

            I’ve walked everywhere in that city and have had zero problems.

            Somebody is getting murdered at Detroit level rates. Its not all black on black and cop on black.

          • CanadaBear

            Good on ya! I walked from the French Quarter up to Louis Armstrong Park about 9 AM. I stopped into a bar after that and chatted up the waitress and she said whatever you do don’t go to Louis Armstrong Park. I was a little more careful after that.

        • Sactowns#1

          Youre insane. I LOVE NOLA!!!! The food alone is worth the trip. But the people, music and art are all AMAZING!

    • Irish Sweetness

      Thanks for the perspective, NBIT. I only ever hear good stuff about NO.

      If you guys only had a week or two, which part of America would you do it in? I don’t drink or party.
      I don’t think I’d like NY. Somewhere in California maybe?

      • CanadaBear

        Depends what you’re looking to do. If you want to see natural wonders I’d recommend Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah and Arizona. For music New Orleans. For women, no idea! For art and culture, NYC.

        • Irish Sweetness

          California seems like it has many different things going on within that area.

          Sounds like two months and a camper van would be the thing.

          • CanadaBear

            If I was going to do a 2-monther I’d take in everything from the Rockies West in both the US and Canada. Stunningly beautiful places and once you do even a modest amount of hiking you don’t see that many people in the US. In Canada there just aren’t that many people in general other than the large population bases.

      • Sactowns#1

        California is definitely where you would want to go. Berkeley/Oakland?SF, Napa, Sacramento, Tahoe, down to Yosemite, over to Santa Barbara and down to San Diego.

      • willbest

        With kids and don’t mind having your wallet raped: Orlando

        With kids and looking for value: Branson MO or Gatlinburg TN. There is good hiking and landscape near both. Ozarks for the former, and Smokey Mountains for the latter.

        No kids, and don’t mind having your wallet raped: New York City

        If you are the outdoors type: Utah (lots of good options but I think they have the best landscape there)

        If you like trendy hippie shit: San Fran or Seattle

        If you like food: Chicago (its as good as new york but 40% cheaper)

        If you like foliage & sea food: Maine in the fall

        If you are a history buff: Philly/DC

        If you are a gambler: Vegas

        I know Sac is pimping CA, and its nice. But keep in mind that its massive. Boston to DC takes less time than San Diego to San Fran

      • That Guy

        Will speaks wisdom here.

        Utah, Utah, Utah. It’s fucking gorgeous. And I think you can find Thai hookers there, too.

        Maine in the fall. Acadia National Park is to die for.

        Grand Tetons and Yellowstone live up to the hype any time of year. Winter, though, is unbelievable–though you need to be outfitted & experienced in that sort of weather.

        San Antonio is really nice, too.

        Problem with my choices is that none of them are full-week destinations (OK, Utah and Tetons/Yellowstone are), and they’re all far away from each other.

        You could make a beautiful week out of Boulder-Denver-CO Springs.

        Seattle is a pretty cool city, too. Lots to do and see.

        But in the end, Chicago has it all. Food, entertainment, museums, great places to see. You could kill a week in Chicago and not do it all. Hell, visit the first weekend in October and you can see the whole city in one 26-mile run!

    That probably isn’t Jeff’s tweet of the week let alone THE tweet of the week

    • CanadaBear

      I thought the same thing. Apparently there is only one person voting.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Enjoying Carrey on Norm, Jeff. Thanks.

    Don’t know what that comedy store dude is sitting there with them though ….

  • SC Dave

    Looks like our line will have its hands full with Cam Jordan. Maybe we should run right at him – let Burton hammer on him a bit early.

  • leftcoastdave

    My biggest concern going into this game is the injuries to Unrein and RRH. Our monsters in the middle will brick wall the run game early, but we need to get control of the clock and time of possession or they will be gassed at crunch time.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      what happened to Unrein?

      • leftcoastdave

        A quad, missed practice yesterday. Don’t know if a bruise or strain.

    • Corn Pop Janitor

      How bad is RRH?

      • leftcoastdave

        It’s a hammy and apparently he practiced so I have heard nothing more since Tuesday.

        • CanadaBear

          He did not practice according to the injury report.

          • leftcoastdave

            So there you have it. Two of our monster five being hobbled is concerning and I am sure Fox will be opening things up with Mitchell in the quest for long drives and time of possession.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Unrein??

  • leftcoastdave

    Good article breaking down the sacks last week. Notice the great contain not giving Mitchell anywhere to escape.

    • SC Dave

      Hopefully, MT will get better pocket awareness soon. On sack #16, if he steps to his right instead of running right into the rushers, he probably buys almost a second.

    • Scharfinator

            He’s dead, isn’t he?

            JFK is a tough one. Could have been the Military Industrial Complex because of Vietnam, or simply his taking on the Fed with the silver dollars. Dunno.

  • BerwynBomber

    Yanks shitcan Girardi. Pale Hose should dialing his agent.

    • CanadaBear

      Although when RR was with the Cubs I thought he did really well considering what he was working with at the time.

      • BerwynBomber

        RR is pro. I don’t mind him. (After Ventura, practically anyone would seem like Connie Mack.) And if the WSox are doing this correctly, they would probably keep RR another year or two before upgrading. But the Girardi types aren’t always available. Might be smart to snatch him even if it’s early in their rebuild.

        • CanadaBear

          I was shocked they shit canned him. Granted I don’t follow the Yankees but he got them to the ALCS and that lineup wasn’t exactly a murderer’s row. Same with the pitching. You know he won’t be unemployed long.

          • BerwynBomber

            Seems a dumb move to me too. But I guess you have to give the Yanks the benefit given how they’ve turned that franchise around from a money dump on veterans to a farm system built focusing on young talent.

          • CanadaBear

            They must have someone in mind to just let Girardi walk. No doubt this wasn’t a last-minute decision since they let his contract run out.

          • AlbertInTucson

        • AlbertInTucson

          I was not keen on the Renteria hire but, considering the way the White Sox shed veterans all season, I thought he did a nice job working in the younger guys.

          Figured they were a lock for 100 losses but they were competitive down the stretch and acquisitions like Moncada and Giolito look like the real deal.

  • BerwynBomber

    Sounds like Rodgers had some major surgery on his throwing shoulder.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/10/26/aaron-rodgers-has-13-screws-in-his-collarbone/

    Goes back to what I have been saying for a few years. Rodgers’s game and body aren’t built to last a’la Brady and the Mannings. His style is too reckless/dangerous for longevity. And at 6’2″ 215 he is rather slight by league standards.

    Wouldn’t be shocked if he ends up a bit like Romo.

    • we’re seeing the same thing with Big Ben. His style leads to him taking a ton of hits, so he’s not lasting as long at a high level.

      • BerwynBomber

        Right. Too different styles of play — Rodgers plays on the perimeter/outside the pocket too much, R-berger fights off too many hits within the pocket — but both styles don’t seem the most sustainable.

        Cam, I think, may even have a shorter career. Despite his size and Adonis-like build.

        • Bear Instincts

          Hopefully all these injuries will teach these kids to learn to become pocket passers. Not saying you cant run but let that be a last resort

          • BerwynBomber

            Yeah, I think the lesson is that extending plays does not result in long careers. Whether you do it like Rodgers or Big Ben.

        • We’re already seeing some of that with Cam, and he’s not even 30 yet.

    • CanadaBear

      That sounds like a nasty break. Would be interesting to know how long that plate is considering all the screws. When I broke mine I lost a little range of motion but that’s all. I didn’t have any PT on it where I’m sure Erin will have a ton of it.

    What would you do with Jim Carrey’s money? Looking at that Norm McDonald show, and generally, he really doesn’t give a fuck. He has a serious position of Fuck-you money. He likes to play up the we-don’t-really-exist image, but I don’t see him giving it away (not that he doesn’t).

    I’m not so sure I wouldn’t wave goodbye to the world, buy myself an island, have a rotating bevy of thai hookers flown in, and just enjoy music, books, and weed on the beach until my last day.

    What would you do?

    • willbest

      Hasn’t he had to pay out a lot of ex-wives/mistresses etc?

      If I had real FU money I would buy 20-40 acres somewhere in the southern hemisphere, close enough to civilization to have a sense of community and not just some sort of mountain man. Chile, New Zealand, Australia.

      I will probably have FU lite money sometime around 50, and will be looking for someplace like Colorado Springs to do that in the US.

      Plans change though. Your kids get lives and they aren’t going to visit you on the regular, so if you want to see them (and the grand kids) you got to put in that effort. Which basically means settling up wherever they do.

      • Irish Sweetness

        I thought about the kids. That’s somewhat of a moral dilemma. They can be flown in I guess, or they’d just have to accept that Daddy was Ken Stabler and live on the island. They’d fly the coop though.

        Australia – too much shit that can kill you, and there’s no way I’m getting in the ocean.

        Colorado Springs, eh?

        • willbest

          Not necessarily there. But some place like it. Its out of the way, but close to Denver which has pretty much everything. And its big enough that it has its own things going on as well, particularly if you like skiing and hiking. Plus Colorado has a pretty big libertarian streak. Maybe its because I am still young, but I find cold winters far more tolerable than hot summers.

          Snooty and expensive. Certainly beautiful there. It’s #2 on the snooty list in Colorado behind Aspen. I’ve done more than a dozen week-long bicycle rides in the mts of Colorado. I used to think Salida might be the best location in CO. Much milder climate and not super expensive. Telluride is probably the most beautiful and plenty expensive with a waterfall in a box canyon at the end of town. It’s a bitch getting in and out of there. NTM it’s at 9200 ft.

          I actually don’t really want a large house. I would be fine with like a 3 bedroom ranch, that has basically an all open basement except for a utility/storage area, that could fit a pool table, poker/gaming table, and bar like area with a couple screens.

      3) Set up trust funds with enough money for my 3 nieces and 1 nephew to pay for college and get started after that (ie down payment for a condo/house after graduating). Do something similar for my brother, who’s doing awesome home missionary work at Miami public schools but has to raise all his own financial support.
      4) Take $10M and put it in a safe investment account. Lower yield, but zero risk.
      5) There’s a boat-load of philanthropic stuff I would do too, but you said not to mention that.
      6) I used to say quit my job and write about the Bears full-time, since I don’t need to be paid for what I do. And I’d be tempted to do that still, but I love my current job. Honestly, I might keep doing it, only not for money. It would really help my school out, and I care a ton about this school (3rd generation faculty member, my parents both went here, I went here).

      Like I said, I’m boring. I generally love my life the way it is right now, though I wish I had a bit more money to work with (I’ll get there, though not FU money, just have to work my way up the pay scale).

        As nice as Jumpball Jeffey is I would not miss him as much if we got Allen Robinson (Jacksonville) and Jarvis Landry (Miami) or Davante Adams (Green Bay). I would miss him because of the opportunity to make MT10 look good.

        • willbest

          Davante Adams is a mid level receiver being elevated by a HoF QB. I would take Jeffery over him, every time. I put Robinson and Landry around his talent level, and could understand going with them over Jeffery if you are concerned about Jeffery’s drive.

          • willbest

            ed. by his talent level, I mean Jeffery.

          • Bear Instincts

            I’m not worried about Jmpball’s drive. He seems to thrive when he has some as good as him or better than him on the team sorta like when he had Marshall. He is not a #1 and should not be treated as such. We need to draft or trade for a true #1 and then possibly consider bringing Jumpball back.

          • SC Dave

            I agree with both of you here. Alshon is that #2 most teams in the league would love to have.

        • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

          I wonder how a jump ball guy can retard the growth of a QB. These great WRs sometimes make QBs lazy. Look at Fat Lezbo with Calvin Johnson. When CJ retired it forced Stafford to become a better QB, no more just throwing jump balls. Guys like Rodgers or Brady never had a jump ball guy, they had WRs that ran great routes. Not saying that a jump ball type receiver is not a great asset, but sometimes they can be used as a crutch and hinder the proper development of a QB.

  • It’s all part of the plan

    I’m saddened by all of these reports of decades of unpunished sexual deviancy against all sorts of women but for some of these you have to laugh:

    Selma Blair on James Toback:
    The actress says she told Toback she refused to have sex with him, to which the director said, “You have to do this for me. You cannot leave until I have release.” Toback proceeded to hump her leg until he masturbated.
    How did these choadbags get away with this for so long with none of these women going to the authorities?

    • Corn Pop Janitor

      I think certain deviants have always existed and been this way – but now they are more educated on how to conceal their deeds. The corporate NDA has been this gigantic boon to malfeasance everywhere. Signing over the right to free speech, patents, all future inventions. Ugly things these NDAs and corporate severance agreements.

      • It’s all part of the plan

        Weinstein’s NDA and settlement with Rose McGowan = 100,000.00

    • willbest

      Because most actresses are prostitutes (and probably half the actors at this point).

      But for a more “benign” explanation its supply and demand. If you are an accountant, the unemployment rate is like 5.6%. If you are a day laborer its like 15-20%. But if you are an actor(ess) its about 90%. And there are only a couple thousand people that make all the hiring decisions. And they all know eachother. This makes each one of these guys (or women) immensely powerful. So you end up with a situation where “if you shoot at the king, you better not miss”

      What is worse. Such jobs attract people that desire this type of benefit.

      Uhm, LBJ

      And in a nod to what’s his name

      LBJ is not just a spanish blow job

      • Malice Halice

        I’m sorry but who is LBJ?

        • Malice Halice

          Never mind. But he does have the WORSE before n after pic of presidency tho. Toss up wit him n Abe

          • Abe had a civil war to win.

            LBJ was just a PRICK!

          • leftcoastdave

            LBJ got rich choosing the route of many freeways after buying up sections of land on the off ramps to be built.

          • leftcoastdave

            Southland Corp. look it up.

          • Oh, I don’t doubt it.
            Many on here think I’m a democrat or something, but I’m far from that. If I had a party I would call it “anti-douche”

            And LBJ was def a douche.

            He also murdered some of his rivals when he was snaking his way up Texas.

            So, assassination was nothing new to him.

          • leftcoastdave

            JFK got us into Vietnam with the assassination of Diem.

          • I have very mixed feelings about JFK.

            He said he was going to silver standard, right?
            He WAS a war hero, unlike Trumf draft dodging pussy

            I think he wanted to end the Vietnam war, and supposedly, wanted to do a lot of other shit (maybe disclosure?) which only Bobby really knew about and wanted to continue

            BUT, he also did almost cause the nuclear holocaust for political maneuvering.

            But maybe like Regan, he knew that the only way to confront the Russians was to go full-Martin Riggs up on them?

            Russians in the end might be more rational than yahoo Americans.

            Let that sink in.

            But I think we can all agree, on all sides, LBJ and Nixon were horrible alternatives.

          • leftcoastdave

            AuH2O.

          • willbest

            I never see you add Clinton draft dodging pussy. I wish you would be consistent. That is all I ask.

            JFK would be the heart and soul of the neo-con GOP today though. Bill Kristol would be slobbing his knob.

            I don’t know whats with the Nixon hate, he was legitimately the first modern democrat elected president. He created the EPA and all whole host of liberal stables. And Clinton and the DNC creating the Russian Dossier and colluding with FBI to get a FISA warrant so they could spy on Trump would be something that would really impress Nixon.

          • leftcoastdave

            First supply side tax cuts ever enacted which both brought in more revenue and stimulated economic growth.

          • Clinton was never brought up before, but yes, another draft dodging pussy.

            But is this the ends-greater-than-means argument?

            Like, would the US have been better if FDR had gone to WW1?

            I admit, Nixon did some solide policy, perhaps his biggest was opening up dialogue with China (which ONLY a REP could’ve got away with)

            But you can’t ignore, as an AMERICAN, him trying some bangladesh coup shit.

            THAT will not stand. Spits on the grave of every american who died to over throw tyrants.

            Getting blowjobs under tables is not even close to lying to congress about Cambodian bombings or tapping political opponents.

            We’re supposed to be better than that.

            A lot of simple folk have died so that we can be better than that.

            And I’ve been consistent. I always said that if shit was found on Ms. Clinton, she should be in prison.

            But Trump pussied out. Surprise surprise.

          • leftcoastdave

            Get ready to call for the imprisonment of both Hill and Barry O for wiretapping President Trump and being bribed to sell 20% of our uranium supplies to the Rooskies.

          • Fine with me.

            As long as Trumpf goes to ass-pounding prison with them.

          • willbest

            What did he do?

          • Beside COLLUDE with the Russians?
            Aside from that?

          • willbest

            There isn’t any evidence of that though. I mean they are looking into Manafort, but that is because he was carrying water for Podesta.

            Pretty fucking stupid of the Clinton campaign if you ask me. Assume that just because they were colluding with Russia through manafort that Trump must have too.

          • There isn’t any evidence of Hillary either, or she would be in prison, is that the logic?

          • willbest

            All I know is that every time somebody shoots at trump they end up hitting themselves. So he is either completely innocent, under the protection of super-natural powers, or people are going to be saying Trump in the same breath as Machiavelli a hundred years from now.

          • I gave my-Evangelical step bro a book on how Hitler avoided about …hmmmm 100 assassination attempts…

            I think this is it.

            https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/94004.Killing_Hitler

            Just so he could stop telling me about “providence”

            Should read it. Probably keep Kleenix near.

          • willbest

            I didn’t say God was necessarily the supernatural power protecting him. Could be Satan, Aliens, or Kate Beckinsale

          • BerwynBomber

            Wasn’t Clinton a conscientious objector?

            GWB and Cheney were draft dodgers. And later war mongers. Surprise.

          • Irish Sweetness

            JFK wanted the best for Americans and people all over the world. He was the last great leader. He was a good man then, and there are no men left that are like him.

            ALL politicians today are evil cocksuckers continuing the theft of America’s money and the enslavement of the American people. Yet most are ignorant of the coup d’etat, or what he tried to do for the American people. His vision put man on the moon and tried to free the country from prejudice and financial slavery, and his death should be mourned by all as the end of the free world.

          • BerwynBomber

            I’m much higher on JFK if only because the majority of Johnson’s Great Society was JFK”s vision.

          • Irish Sweetness

            The Federal Reserve wanted him dead for sure. JFK understood the Fed’s Ponzi scheme – still in operation today and milking Americans of their wealth since 1933. He wanted currency that wasn’t debt-laden for the American people, and to free them from eternal slavery to the Rothschilds et al. So they might have shot him.

            I think it was a bit like the death of Caesar. They all had a part. There’s only a few people in that room. And then they had to shoot his brother because he wanted the same thing.

            America died in 1968.

          • BerwynBomber

            Actually Eisenhower got us into Vietnam. But Johnson and Nixon massively escalated our presence.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Nope. He wanted them OUT, and that was a good reason for shooting him.

          • Dis Guy Trublinsky

            And was missing a bit of his skull. That’ll fuck up any pic

          • Irish Sweetness

            Brian Cranston did a good job in the movie

        • AlbertInTucson

          Are you kidding?

          Lyndon Baines Johnson.

          Kennedy’s VP.

      • leftcoastdave

        And then there’s JEdgar as FBI Director. Mandatory retirement waived for him until he was carried out of his flat, feet first with all private files sealed. He had the dirt on every one of them dirty politicians, starting with St. Hubie who regularly collected envelopes of cash as Mayor of Minneapolis. Dirty at the FBI did not start with Comey.

        • And the Mafia had Edgar pics in drag, which is why the FBI didn’t even acknowledge there was a mafia till it was a joke and everyone knew.

          They don’t teach you that in U.S. History 101

          Truth is, the U.S. is just as corrupt as other countries, we just cover it up better, something we learned well from the Brits.

    One thing for sure. Gase ain’t all dat. I thought he was an offensive guru from all da media hype. As I said b4. You CANNOT credit a manager for the work his crew is doing. Even trestman would look great if He had Peyton throwin to Thomas n Samuel n dat decent TE.

      2015 Chicago Bears – 20.9 ppg
      2016 Chicago Bears – 17.4 ppg
      2017 Chicago Bears – 17.4 ppg

      He might not be a genuis, but he is 20% better than what we have.

      • Malice Halice

        True. That’ll change quickly tho

        • willbest

          What evidence on record has you believing that?

          • Malice Halice

            Inman

          • willbest

            Not having seen him create separation from a #1 CB in a Birdcage scheme and taking a pass from Trubisky, I would consider that more wishful thinking.

            I mean I hope if you get him and Wright on the field at the same time it gives DBs something to take seriously, but I am not going to hold my breath.

    • willbest

      Oh and just on the PPG bit, you know what team is leading the league right now. Rams with 30.9.

      Would never have put money on that one.

      So far he is showing he knows how to win games. No small thing. Even if they lose tonight Gase’s HC record w/ MIA will be 14-9. And that is with the QB firm of Tannenhill, Cutler and Moore.

    • Irish Sweetness

      I never got the Gase love. Could never see what it was based on … and how he was qualified to be a HC off it … a mystery.

  • Cormonster

    Agree with Jeff – Norm MacDonald Live is the funniest talk show ever. I’ve only seen 8-10 episodes, but all of them were entertaining and had some LOL moments. I guess it should be funny, since most of the guests are comedians.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Did you think Carrey shit all over the Comedy Store guy who inexplicably sits there with them.

      • Cormonster

        Haven’t watched this one yet, but a few other comedians have gave that guy some shit, so maybe it’s part of the schtick. Off the top of my head, some of the ones I enjoyed were Dana Carvey, Seinfeld, Letterman, Tim Allen, and Super Dave.

  • Corn Pop Janitor

    So I went through all the JFK files released this afternoon by the archive.

    Turns out… it was Alf! fucking Alf.

      I KNEW IT!!!!

      Were the Tanners implicated?

  • AlbertInTucson

    Bears beat the, at the time, the offensively challenged, Ravens.

    Last week, the can’t run the ball and can’t pass protect, Panthers.

    The Saints fit neither of those descriptions and the are where they most like to play.

    Inside.

  • Irish Sweetness

    So when GPL mentioned the JFK files, I thought he was joking. They weren’t due to be released until 2038. I’ve been following this since I was a kid.

    So now they’re going to paint the picture of what DIDN’T happen. They’re sick of all the speculation about a coup d’etat, so they’re now going to spin a line of bullshit and show you that it really was Oswald, even though the laws of physics completely trash that possibility. And people will buy it.

    All over again.

    People get the governments they deserve.

    • It’s all part of the plan

      Ugh
