The current shirt from 26Shirts is my concept and design and you can see it over on the right rail (or down below on mobile). Proceeds going to great cause. You can read all about that, and place your order, by CLICKING HERE. It ain’t just tee shirts, either. The hoodies, light and sweatshirt-style, are both very cool.
I always like the Chicago Bears, despite this Allen Robinson situation.
Would I like to see Robinson in Chicago long-term? Of course. Would I be rushing to give him $20 million a year without knowing who my quarterback is in 2021? Nope. No I would not.
Nevertheless, Robinson’s case is only supported by positive play and that’s what I would expect moving forward.
Travel day for me. (Buffalo rocks.) So here are some quick thoughts on a tedious, boring win over the Giants.
“The roni cup, also known as “cup and char” pepperoni, has long been a hallmark of pizza in Buffalo…”
by J. Hughes
While you’re watching Chicago play offense (I think),
I’ll be in Buffalo, at the Old Pink.
While the quarterbacks (plural) are doing their thing
I’ll be in Buffalo, having a wing.
You’ll get to see defense, Chicago does that,
But I’ll be in Buffalo, drinkin’ Labatt.
Maybe you’ll watch from your fav-o-rite bar?
I’ll be in Buffalo, for the cup and the char.
What happens from here, not sure anyone cares.
The title won’t be ours, it will always be theirs.
I’ll still be in Buffalo,
Yes even in Buffalo,
I’ll be in Buffalo, watching the Bears.
I always like the Chicago Bears…
…and if they don’t win this game Sunday, they could lose the remaining games on their schedule. They won’t be a bigger favorite the rest of the season. (And the line was set at 6.5 without a quarterback announcement. This means Vegas – who are quite good at this – see no difference between Trubisky and Daniel.)
The most important games of the week for the Chicago Bears will be played tonight (Bears v Rams) and tomorrow night (Vikings v Seahawks). But there’s still much to keep an eye on before we hit the primetime slate.
Who should the Bears fan root for?
Another Panthers loss would basically clear them from the wildcard fray.
There’s an argument to be made for rooting against Dallas. But that’s a seeding argument. Seeding schmeeding. Fans should just want the Bears playing in January.
This is the least important because Mark Sanchez ain’t making a run.
The Bears had the Giants in a third-and-23. Even a 20-yard run means New York is punting and the Bears are either going to block it, return it or sit on it and go into halftime with a touchdown lead. Matt Nagy called timeout. It was the kind of aggressive decision we’ve longed for Bears coaches to make.
It didn’t work. Because Nagy learned something we all learned: this defense can’t be trusted.
The vaunted unit folded on the next two plays and then continuously throughout the second half. If it felt like we were watching a re-run it’s because we were. This is the third time the defense — which is supposed to carry the team — absolutely crumbled.
At their best, the Bears defense is legitimately great. But they still might be underachieving. Performances like Sunday (and Miami, and Green Bay) just can’t happen if the Bears are going to be truly relevant this year.
The Bears had a top ten defensive unit last year before adding a top ten draft pick and one of the three best defensive players in the history of the universe. They’ve made a jump, but there are these weird games that are just indefensible and one has to wonder what will happen when the Bears go up against one of the league’s great offenses.
Make no mistake, the Bears can stop the Rams, Saints or Chiefs. They absolutely have the talent to get the job done. But that doesn’t mean they will. And it’s hard to pinpoint what the exact problem is.
