Audibles From the Long Snapper: A Completely Non-Bears Version (Kinda)

| February 26th, 2018


Alshon Jeffery: American Hero

Jeffery played 2017 with a torn rotator cuff. Just a few weeks after he and the Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl 52, it was announced that Jeffery underwent surgery for the injury that has all-but guaranteed he’ll miss the entirety of Philly’s off-season program and has put the start of the 2018 regular season in jeopardy.

A few questions:

  • Did the team know? If they did, how can this not get publicly reported all season? Was Jeffery never even PROBABLE with a rotator cuff tear? He was just 100%, good-to-go? If you have a torn rotator cuff, that injury is not one that can’t be hampered more severely in-game.
  • Why did Jeffery play? Cash. The league made it very clear to Jeffery’s team they did not believe he could either (a) stay healthy or (b) play through pain? This season he proved he (a) can’t stay healthy and (b) can play through pain. But what will the long-term ramifications be of his playing hurt to get a lucrative extension? We’ll know more in September and beyond.
  • There’s been a lot of talk about Jeffery leaving Chicago because the Bears would not pay him. That talk is incorrect. I urge people to go back and read some actual reporting in this space that detailed what Jeffery was offered and how things turned out.

NFL Loves High School Coaches Now

Here’s an idea for Roger Goodell. FIX THE DAMN LEAGUE! STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE DAMN DRAFT AND FIX THE SPORT WHICH YOU COMMISSION.


Doug Pederson MIC’D UP!

Pederson caught a lot of shit this year, primarily from Mike “Can’t Hold Down a Job For Any Employer But Bills Belichick & Simmons” Lombardi. But he’s proven to be a damn good coach and this was a fun look back one of the finest Super Bowl coaching displays in league history.


Personnel Men on the Rookie QBs

I’m not bothering to explain who my friends are. They are these guys. Here’s what they told me on the incoming quarterbacks.

AFC Personnel Man: “There’s not a star in the bunch.”

NFC Personnel Man: “The best QB in this class will be the fifth or sixth guy taken. Watch.” (I followed up on this text and got an “LOL”. So fuck him.)

  • Not sure there’s been a weirder story than Jonathan Martin vaguely-threatening bully revenge on social media with photos of guns & ammo…a week after a school shooting. Richie Incognito took the brunt of the media’s force but many believed Martin was the unstable one in the Dolphins locker room. He’s starting to prove it.
  • Did kneeling for the national anthem play a role in the Chiefs dealing Marcus Peters? For the sake their fans, I hope not.
  • A CBS piece from October worth revisiting: “As the NFL and its players pledge to work together in turning protests into community service, one team has announced a donation of $500,000 toward the banning of bump stocks and other features of automatic weapons.” Read the entirety of the piece HERE.
  • Charles Tillman is an FBI agent now.
  • From The Big Lead, on what Fox airing the draft on network TV means for the NFL’s relationship with ESPN: Monday Night Football has been a major component of why ESPN has been able to command affiliate fees from cable operators leaps and bounds ahead of anyone else. But, MNF is not the platform it once was. It is undeniable that this package gets worse games from the NFL than the broadcast nets Fox, CBS, and NBC do. Yes, the Draft is comparatively on the periphery in relation to the games, but airing it on Fox certainly has the byproduct of even further atrophying ESPN’s relationship with the League as they will lose market share on a spectacle that they essentially created from thin air in the 1980’s.”

A Good Piece of Classical Musical

From Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet. Saw this at New York City Ballet a few back and it was sensational. This piece of music has stayed with me. And now I’m giving it to you, despite the fact that 99% of you don’t want it.

Tagged: , , , , ,

  • SC Dave

    I’ve always sort of liked Prokofiev’s stuff, although I’m not sure I’d call it “classical” music. Perhaps one could just use the term “orchestral”?

    • BenderMcLugh

      what are you on about? classical vs. orchestral? you know it’s Monday right?

      • Scharfinator

        There’s a lot of difference… classical, baroque, romantic, etc.

        • BenderMcLugh

          which is all orchestral to me. I don’t really differentiate them outside of operatic & non-operatic.

          • Scharfinator

            Sure, most of us don’t worry about differentiating. I don’t typically myself. That doesn’t make what Dave said crazy.

            EDIT: Despite his track record at times 😛

          • BenderMcLugh

            haha true, I didn’t think I was saying he was crazy, not for that at least

          • CanadaBear

            Do you like Opera music? I appreciate the talent but not a big fan. I’m sure live with an orchestra it’s completely different.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Apocalypse Now made good use of RIDE OF THE VALKERIES.

            Woody Woodpecker and Bugs Bunny rendered BARBER OF SEVILLE nicely.

            Bugs also in WHAT’S OPERA, DOC? and LONG HAIRED HARE.

            http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2fdnv1

          • leftcoastdave

            Bugs also did Brunhilda with Elmer Fudd singing an ascending “kill da wabbit, kill da wabbit” to the Ride of the Valkeries melody.
            Great stuff.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Yes. That’s all in WHAT’S OPERA, DOC?.

            Directed by Chuck Jones.

          • BenderMcLugh

            Not really into opera but appreciate the talent it takes

          • Irish Sweetness

            Love those lungs. Sumi Jo?

            Here she is singing Ave Maria, after choosing to play a date even though her father had passed two days before.

        • leftcoastdave

          All lumped under the larger classification “classical music.”

          BTW: Symphonie Fantastic by Hector Berlioz is considered the “transition” to the romantic period if I recall my music lit education. It is killer and you should check it out if you have not. It works some great theme and variation out of the tottentanze aka dies iras. Our elderly professor failed to mention that Berlioz was into opium.

          • SC Dave

            Opinions vary, I’m sure. There are elements of Schubert’s music that certain harken the Romantic Period.

          • leftcoastdave

            Many hinted. Berlioz kicked the door down. That’s how my music lit teacher characterized it in any event. Even Beethoven hinted at romanticism.

    • leftcoastdave

      The genre be the genre:

      “Of the established forms and genres in which he worked, he created – excluding juvenilia – seven completed operas, seven symphonies, eight ballets, five piano concertos, two violin concertos, a cello concerto, a symphony-concerto for cello and orchestra, and nine completed piano sonatas.”
      Here’s a link to “greatest hits.”

      • Irish Sweetness

        I corrected my exams to Debussy yesterday. It was wonderful. Joni Mitchell’s favorite composer, and she’s mine, so …

    • NBIT (Not That Other Guy)

      I believe you’d want to say Orchestral and Chamber music to get the whole genre. Chamber music referring to smaller ensembles such as solo piano or string quartet.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Aha! NBIT! We have an Oswald stoolie using your old handle …

  • That Guy

    Richie Incognito is still a piece of shit. He threatened Martin and his family and pretty much fit the textbook of bullying.

    That said, Martin is a head case. Which is probably why he was picked on so much by Incognito.

    While I’m critiquing guys involved in that whole business, let me just say the Pouncey brothers are pieces of shit, too. They were huge supporters of Hernandez–not like “we want him to get the help he needs” type of supporters, but more “he’s innocent and being railroaded” type of supporters. They turned a blind eye to his instability, excused his behavior, and denied there was any danger in his actions. In many ways, they’re worse pieces of shit than Incognito.

    /puts soapbox away

  • BenderMcLugh

    Prokofiev, excellent stuff. But The Leftovers criticism is just you being too drunk while watching. Sober up a bit and re-watch the last few episodes. (swigs my whiskey at 8:20am) *hiccup*

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      Isn’t Jeff on a break from drinking again?

      • BenderMcLugh

        damn, there goes my theory.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Is it a good watch Bender?

      • BenderMcLugh

        I think so, it takes a bit for the story to get going but I’ve enjoyed it

  • BenderMcLugh

    So I got to catch the shoot out of the USA women’s gold medal match on replay last night. Man that was an awesome series, both sides have their studs that made the goalie look ridiculous. Here here to the US womens team!

  • BearDown100393

    Alshon is an Eagle and in the rear view mirror from a Bears perspective.

    Our receiving corps is putrid. Let’s focus on fixing that instead of worrying about an Eagles issue.

    • If White hadnt busted (literally) and if Wheaton, Wright and Cam made up the production, i don’t think many would care.
      But WR is arguably the #1 because of Pace.
      That’s why fans are miffed.
      If Pace signs a good WR in FA for about the same contract, then Pace will somewhat get a pass again

      • Irish Sweetness

        All we need is height. We can draft that. The slots we got.

        • leftcoastdave

          Our slot is coming from KC.

  • leftcoastdave

    Must watch video. Last clip with Doug Pederson giving Foles the love who says to Peterson “I’m so blessed, man, so blessed.” To which Peterson says “so blessed, we’re so blessed.”

    That team was together as brothers and proclaimed it at the end of the game, giving the glory to God in the first thing Pederson said on the stage post game. Wentz has been preaching for years but has stayed away from the Tebow spotlight. Or perhaps people are just giving him more respect?

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      woohoo! “God” loved them more than the losers.

      • leftcoastdave

        Didn’t say that. Just said what Pederson said first thing on the stage after winning. He gave all the glory and thanks to God.

        • SC Dave

          Whatever.

        • Irish Sweetness

          We can’t do shit alone.

    • BearDown100393

      Which God?

      • The one that smote Warner vs Steelers. Guess god preferred a fat rapist that day…the ways of god are strange…

  • CanadaBear

    Lots of people like that piece. It’s not my favorite but it doesn’t make me want to run out of the room. I follow Anastasia Hupperman on FB. Drop dead gorgeous Russian pianist. If you like classical piano music check her out. Not saying she’s the best or anything but if you’re going to watch a classical pianist why not watch a gorgeous one!

    Here’s Dave Edmunds killing Sabre Dance on guitar. Totally bombastic and totally fun!

    • leftcoastdave

      Nice.

      For a different genre of guitar magic, check out Pat Donohue finger picking the Maple Leaf Rag.

      • CanadaBear

        Since I play piano I prefer a piano version but he’s really good. Really clean. I love Larry Fine on his tie!

        • BenderMcLugh

          didn’t know you played piano CB, nice. My high school friend is now the keyboardist for Night Ranger, and he’s really damn good. Eric Levy, he was also in Garaj Mahal with Fareed Haque. Eric the one in da bears shirt:
          http://www.progarchives.com/progressive_rock_discography_band/4769.jpg

          I used to go to his parents place in high school to watch a bears game, his dad would leave the windows and front door wide open to let in the winter air so he could feel like he was at the stadium. Fun times!

          • CanadaBear

            Too cool! Not really familiar with their music although I know they are really successful. I love his dad! That must have been a hoot when you were a kid!

            I’m not really any good on piano but I can play. Never played in a band.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Sigh.

            Played drums in grade school and high school.

            Took organ lessons too.

            That said, I was a most PEDESTRIAN musician.

            Could never get my left hand to work very independently of my right hand.

            Still, being in the Symphonic/Marching Band was in high school was a good experience for me.

            Also learned to appreciate some classical music along the way.

            A little musical knowledge comes in handy in my video editing work, too.

          • CanadaBear

            That’s definitely the tricky part about piano, both hands are doing completely different things. I have to play a song a lot to get my left hand on auto.

        • leftcoastdave

          Oh, yea. I know that genre well. Pat taught me some fingerpicking with the first piece I learned being Spike Drivers Blues by Mississippi John Hurt. Got a ’47 Martin 0018 as my first guitar for $325 when I was 20. It sings. Pat played it in a front set for John Prine at the Guthrie.

          • CanadaBear

            Not sure how old you are but $325 at 20 is a lot. Nice investment! Do you still play?

          • leftcoastdave

            Oh, yea. Music is good for the head. And my kid plays piano and drums and can do a pretty good version of the Maple Leaf Rag himself. I would not even begin to try to do it the way Pat does, however.

  • leftcoastdave

    The longest month of the year is almost over!

    Somebody else touting Robert Quinn for da Bears:

  • leftcoastdave

    Butch will love this one. More “excuses” for Pace and FA:

    https://sportsmockery.com/2018/02/ryan-pace-wasnt-reason-bears-2017-free-agent-class-bombed/

    • CanadaBear

      I give Pace a little bit of a pass because of injuries but he signed a pile of stiffs to be sure.

    • The very first execuse, ‘FAs didnt want to join Bears due to HC’ and whose fault is that?
      I wanted Fox fired in 2016, but Pace, and many on here, were using the INJ defense to keep Fox.
      Essentially wasted a yr, not to mention miss out on good HCs. Oh well.
      As the bard says, alls well that ends well…so if Nagy and Trub turn this around, then we can look at Pace’s first 3 seasons as growing pains and not as foreshadowing of fuckery

      • leftcoastdave

        Bingo.

        And cutting Pace and Simms means they have better targets in FA.

        • BearDown100393

          Yeah cut Pace now!

  • Bear Instincts
    • AlbertInTucson

      Well THAT”S a relief! (Sacasm).

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      Even more proof! I am betting my life savings.

    • That means he’ll end up on the Eagles somehow and theyll repeat

      • leftcoastdave

        Hey, if they gave value (a first ?) why not and use it for a need while we get more of a dual threat?

        Yea, I know, enough holes to plug already.

        Sheesh.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Second contract!

    • BearDown100393

      Let him run the team. The attitude is good.

    • KentuckyBearsFan

      Ryan Pace guarantees the Bears are going to the playoffs (some day).

      • BearDown100393

        George McCaskey gives Ryan Pace a vote of confidence.

  • FresnoBear88

    Who
    Gives a shit about jefferrys. The fact that we still ponder and wish he was a bear is pathetic.

    • AlbertInTucson

      “Gives a shit about jefferrys”?

      Nobody, as there is no play by that name in the league.

      • BearDown100393

        Ever?

        • AlbertInTucson

          I remember Haywood Jeffires.

          He had some nice receiving seasons as an Oiler, late ’80s, early ’90s.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Good reach, Al! Was he on the same team as Ernest Givens?

          • AlbertInTucson

            I had to look Givens up but, yes, he was.

            The hey day of the run & shoot with Warren Moon in his prime.

    • ButtonShoes

      We ponder and wish he was still a Bear because our WR corp is a trash fire. I doubt there would be much pining for Jeffery if Pace had done his job and found adequate replacements for his production.

  • AlbertInTucson

    “Did kneeling for the national anthem play a role in the Chiefs dealing Marcus Peters? For the sake their fans, I hope not.”

    That’s really cherry-picking on Peters’ behalf.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      He did say ‘a role’ as in only part of the reason for the trade. I don’t know anything about the Chiefs ownership, maybe they were extremely offended.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Peters comes with a lot of baggage, dating back to college.

        But he has that “Wide Receiver Diva” type personality that, despite obvious talent, wears thin on teams after a couple of season dealing with it.

  • AlbertInTucson
    • BearDown100393

      Goosed.
      – Very Bad Things

  • BuddhaJoe

    Demps and McPhee cut, why are they waiting on Glennon?

    • BearDown100393

      PETA’s approval

    • Still need him as a smokescreen for Mayfield

      • BearDown100393

        Well played.

  • BerwynBomber

    Wish Jeff would cultivate some professional DBB relationships that offered more variety of opinion.

    It used to be they were all in lock-step in supporting Cutler as unfairly maligned/underappreciated. Now it seems the requirement is that Bisky was the best QB taken in the last few drafts.

    Among all the Jahns, Hoges, Andrews and J-Woods couldn’t we have a single skeptic? I get wanting to be positive/optimistic but when I see the NFC/AFC Personnel guy quotes I skim (because I can predict, at worst, the suggestion).

    Can we not have a single guy who disagrees about some of the Bears most recent signal-callers? From what I recall these guys all tossed shade on McCown and Hoyer too.

    I was a day 1 Cutty skeptic but I get the optimism regarding Bisky. He has skill and his campaign as a rookie was solid. Still the narrative of Bisky as definitely the best QB prospect in the last two drafts has gotten old. And not to say it will prove incorrect, but for now it is damn predictable.

    • BearDown100393

      Jeff is biased by his Bears fandom and a blogger at heart.

      He is not a journalist.

      • Yeah, but we`re not here for a cold dispassionate anaylsis of the Bears.
        We all know what Jeff is. A writer ar the bar who loves the Bears.
        I’m more than ok w that.

        What Jeff really needs is an X and O type writer who can talk about all the nuansainces like technique, system, responsibilities, hot routes, foot work, release, etc

        Esp now w a WCO guru as HC.

        • BearDown100393

          For a bale of hay, Jeff could hire Giraffe.

        • EnderWiggin

          Remember Lorin Cox? He’d be perfect for that roll. Or you.. You’d be that with some entertainment.

          • Yeah, Cox was pretty good w that. Isnt he writing for some big wig site now?
            I keep getting tempted to submit an article to Jeff that isn’t a blow job piece, but now that Data, Andy and the chick rotate ( forgot her name), prolly no room for Butchery lol

            I would totally do an FF piece, but

            A. Jeff hates it ( now u know how we all feel when u talk about Golf jeff!)
            B. I dont want to reveal my magic to u suckers! (Insert Patton scene Rommel you magnifecent bastard, I read ur book!”

            Maybe before FA kicks in I’ll write something about the targets Pace should aim for…

          • EnderWiggin

            Emily.

            A. You submitting a fantasy piece could be a good idea. Blogfather hates it, but 50+ percent of his readers are involved. Probably get another way to get his twitter followers over here too.

            B. I know your strategy! Button-hook the poor bastard (me) into believing the trade is a win/win, while you reap all of the benefits! (that is sort of a joke, I started winning after we did the Julio swap.)

        • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

          Matt Bowen would be perfect.

          • Yeah, that’s who i was thinking about. Or a Chucky knock -ff on the O side (w out the annoying part)

    • leftcoastdave

      Wait a minute, that is what we are for! This is where he gets his best ideas.

    • “Modestly” Huge Bears Penis

      Plenty of other sites have those views.

      • KentuckyBearsFan

        Well, any honest analysis would just say “it’s too early to tell.” But damn we’re not all gonna wait another 3 years to form an opinion based on watching him play. Nothing to indicate he’s a bust OR a Pro Bowler at this point.

        Hell, RG3 looked like he was destined for Canton most of his rookie year. Didn’t pan out.

        From NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and Pro Bowler to released by the Cleveland Browns. And from married to his college sweetheart…to divorced from his college sweetheart. Jesus Christ.

        Trubisky could turn evil. From a model citizen to painkiller addict texting pornography.

        He could turn into Brett Favre.

        It’s too early to tell.

        • Irish Sweetness

          It’s not to early to tell that he overpaid for MT. We can say that now.

          A 2nd 3rd and 4th?!!

          • KentuckyBearsFan

            I kept thinking that Pace traded away only one third round pick to move up only one spot….but yeah it was more than that. It was 2 thirds and a 4th (but not a second).

            Could have just gotten Watson or Mahomes (who I kinda wanted for no reason) if Trubisky was gone. But could have probably gotten Trubisky anyway. Not smart for a team full of holes.

            Pace made a “splash” to make himself seem smart?

            http://www.espn.com/blog/chicago-bears/post/_/id/4707165/trading-spaces-who-won-draft-day-trade-that-netted-bears-mitchell-trubisky
            “To acquire the No. 2 pick, the Bears sent the Niners the third overall choice in the first round and pick Nos. 67 and 111 in the 2017 draft as well as Chicago’s third-round pick in 2018.”

          • leftcoastdave

            As we used to say in high school when someone at the poker table wanted to see the next card in the deck after the hand was won, “no sense looking up a dead horses arse.”

      • BerwynBomber

        Bears sites? And what “views”?

    • Irish Sweetness

      I don’t listen to any of the interviews. Why? I don’t want to hear people agreeing with each other.

      Backslapping and bias confirmation.

      Get a guy on who thinks we got taken on a ride, talk to him. That’s a convo.

      • BerwynBomber

        Exactly. I haven’t listened to one of those things in a couple of years. Absolutely no interest.

        Then again, I never found Jeff Dickerson that objectionable so I’m sure the DBB island on which I reside is largely unpopulated.

        Ah well ….

        • Dis Guy Trublinsky (Johnnywad)

          You’d be surprised who you might see walking the beaches.

        • ButtonShoes

          Jeff Dickerson’s a welcome splash of cold water to all the pie-in-the-sky fantasy that surrounds the Bears’ prospects these days.

    • CaponeBot 1.0

      I know a union plumber at my kid’s school who has a really loud voice and is good at cheering. He looks pretty intense and dangerous as he is limping around the school. Should I call him?

      • BearDown100393

        Tag him immediately.

      • Kenny Dennis

        One knee McPhee
        hopping around all gimp
        like the fucker gotta pee
        another free agent mess it was
        just another plain to see

      • Irish Sweetness

        Has he got heart?

    • Sactowns#1

      McPhee showed some flashes of greatness at times. Wish he could play that way consistently.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Well, he played mostly on 1 leg as a Bear.

      • The Ravens had the right idea. Keep him on a snap count of 600.
        That’s why I’m always a lil dubious of part timers going full.

        Pace likes gambling on the INJ prone( Prince, Jaye Howard) , part timers (Wheaton, Sims, McPhee) or ‘upside` guys (Glennon,, Cooper, Demps).

        I dont mind it in spots , but when a GM only relies on such risks, well, here we are.

        If Mcphee is available after the draft, maybe could resign him for cheap and keep him as purely a rotation guy. Though at this stage I might prefer gambling on Houston over him

          What makes you say “Pace likes gambling on the INJ prone . . . ” or that he chooses to “rel(y) on such risks?”
          I do not think it is a matter of “like” or “choice,” but rather what he could sign to play in Chicago.
          With a new coach and a more respected D, that is hoped to be changed this year.

          Let the jury be out for six weeks or so and then see what has been done.

            I think Butch is in a Ryan Pace Death Spiral for some reason lately. I don’t think anything’s gonna change his outlook except W’s next fall.

          • I no longer look get excited over a Pace FA, that’s for sure.
            I look forward more to his drafts, but by that time it’s one step back , one step forward.

        • ButtonShoes

          Ryan Pace is allergic to sure things. To use a metaphor: he’s always trying to aim for a grand slam when some consistent, reliable hitting would be better.

      Post above meant to be a reply here.

      No FA, draft. Tremaine Edmunds. The Black Lac.

      Or sign the two Eagles!

      • leftcoastdave

        One each, FA and draft.

    I posted this today before the cut:

    “leftcoastdave • 8 hours ago

    Somebody else touting Robert Quinn for da Bears:”

    Spotted his paycheck with the Rams over the weekend but did not see the second piece on how KC wanted him plus a pick in the Marcus Peters trade:

    Marcus Peters cost them a 2nd and a 4th …

    • leftcoastdave

      With the chatter of possibly cutting Robert Quinn, I say we jump all over that if he is cut loose. Clearly the Rams are shopping him but his price tag may be too heavy at $12m. But hey, if they throw in a pick, even a 5th or 6th da Bears could afford to bite the bullet. The dude is your kind of player at 6’5″, 265 and 27 years old of grown man. A trade saves the Rams $1m it cap over a cut.

      • Irish Sweetness

        We have to make a play on him, we’re looking VERY light at LB now.

  • Malice Halice

    Pace ain’t got too much cake batter to fill in the muffin pans. We can’t afford to lose picks again this year by all means. The way I look at it, if he’s not one of the first to make a move within the FIRST 6hrs of FA all hope will be lost. Pace needs to DOMINATE FA n then let the draft be the seasoning.

    • Totally agree.
      No more shrug your shoulder -cross your finger FAs.

      He’s gotta sign ballers on day 1 that get us pumped.

      If they flame out, so be it.

      Tired of seeing everyone get BMXs for Xmas, and we get socks.

    • ButtonShoes

      He definitely needs to do this. But given his track record so far, I have little faith he will.

  • ButtonShoes

    So Sitton, Freeman, Demps, and McPhee are gone. Wonder what’s taking so long to cut Glennon, Cooper, Wheaton and Young.
