We’re a good football team. We will get these problems corrected although I have been saying that for the last four weeks. Also, I really appreciate Virginia McCaskey for signing her name very neatly on my last paycheck.
Maybe the McCaskeys will go to jail for selling Bear playoff tickets for the fans who are whistling dixie. Anyone know in the FBI who can arrange a little entrapment against the scummy fuck wad brigade?
Even with Cutler and Forte NOT NOT NOT a playoff team. Too many other weaknesses.
Thanks to our friend, Jerry Angelo. And awful Lovie. And Martz and his ancient offense.
Watching the awful sportswriting/casting in this town now, I can say I am sick of them. Virtually to a man.
Can’t watch PGL on Comcast because I can’t STAND Jim Miller. He’s like one of those guys who played but makes a lousy coach.
And the worst is that hyberbolic, sycophantic gnome on Ch. 32, Lou “I’m totally talentless” Canellis.
This guy has the charisma of a pile of dogshit. He has never said an original thought in his life. He’s a “yes man” of the WORST order. Brian Urlacher has a look on his face every week that says “Why do I have to work with this idiot?”
Fox probably bought him for a cup of coffee and a CTA bus pass. He’s probably on a weekly contract with them. They’ve got him on EVERY FUCKING SHOW. He belongs back on 190 North with Janet Davies.
Murdoch has millions. At least he can afford a competent sportscaster in a major US market.
Damn Joe, For the first time in my life I am glad I live in New jersey. I hear no Chicago sports talk.
I can’t remember many non Bear fans picking the Bears to beat the Eagles when everyone was playing. I don’t remember too many people picking the Bears to beat the Bills last year after the bye week. The team is just fundamentally flawed because Angelo is a jack off and worse yet, didn’t Lovie Smith claim that this years team was the best he ever coached? NO ONE thought the healthy ’11 Bears would win on Christmas. WTF Lovie?
They’re not a playoff team with Cutler and Forte? What are you smoking? They were 7-3 when Jay got hurt (7-3 with the hardest schedule of any 7-3 at the time as they were last in the waiver line of the other 7-3 teams in the NFL). Since then, theyve barely lost 3 games, and got blown out in a fourth that spiraled. In one of those.close games, they had Forte. I have to believe that the Bears are at least 7-10 points better with Jay (and Matt for the two he missed) in those close games. They would have won those. I suspect the Bears would have won yesterday as with an actual NFL QB in there, they would have probably had a decent halftime lead, and still had an offense that could score.
Regardless, to say they’re not a playoff team with Jay and Matt is ridiculous. In many ways, they were the same team with those two as they were last year, you know, the year they made the playoffs. Right now, with them, they’d have ay least 10 wins (likely 11) and probably clinched a playoff berth
Lovie Smith enjoys himself more when he lies to the media and fans. It is correct what is posted above about Lovie Smith saying that he has a good football team. He actually said that numerous times. He has also said during this free fall that the team will get their mistakes corrected. Well, if it hasn’t been corrected in four weeks, I don’t think it will be anytime soon.
Hub Arkush on 670 The Score said that there were some players who told him that they want to see Nathan Enderle start on Christmas Day. I would have to agree with them as well that this dis-organization owes it to the team and us, the fans, to start Enderle. Josh McCown who was out of football for a reason, is fucking horrible. I am not saying Enderle is any better but we already know McCown and Hanie for that matter, are not NFL quarterbacks.
I am sick and tired of this fucking franchise bullshitting us year in and year out. It’s not just one person in particular. There is enough blame to going around from McCaskey to Phillips, to Angelo and the bullshitter himself, Lovie.
Rest assure, despite what some people might rebuttal here, I honestly believe an actual football coach would do the right thing and say “We aren’t playing that well because we aren’t good enough. We’ve had injuries but those aren’t an excuse. Our backup players are not capable of helping us win”. Who gives a fuck if someone is thrown under the bus. This is a business and a real coach shouldn’t give a damn about whom he is offending.
Lovie has actually thrown a couple of people under the bus. But he did it in a real sneaky, shitty way. He was so cryptic about it you could barely tell he did it. I am so fucking sick of this asshole I can’t stand it. I’ve never liked him from day one.
Bears were a playoff caliber team this year but no one felt they’d be a Super Bowl contender. No one on here thought they’d beat the Packers on the road this year and they beat only two good teams, the rest are .500 or a lot worse like the Bucs or Vikings.
Their flaws are too fucking deep. What good is making the playoffs if Cutler has one receiver he has faith in, one average (or less?) tight end to work with, and a patchwork offensive line due to come apart at the seams at any moment? You might luck your way past a few teams but that is not a WINNING team.
I am only dreaming here but on my wish list of coaches, I have the following two:
1. Bill Cowher
2. Brian Billick
Both coaches have proved they can win a Super Bowl and both can actually get their defenses to…play defense! While Lovie Smith on the other hand, has assholes like Tim Jennings, Charles Tillman and Zack fucking Bowman wander 10 yards away from whom they are covering and letting those receivers catch easy passes. I fucking hate seeing that shit. We need a coach who can come in and make sure that shit doesn’t happen again.
Everyone always wants the same coaches. Who do you think the Bears will pick for a new GM and head coach? Phillips would pick Matt Millen for GM because he’ll come cheap and I imagine they’d try Rob Ryan, Eric Mangini or Herm Edwards for another 5 to 8 long years.
Sorry, Yeti, but you got you got too much hair in your eyes.
Pickett is right.
By playoff team, I don’t mean a team that can MAKE the playoffs and then you cross your fingers….I mean a team that you KNOW has a chance to beat ANYONE…..cuz that’s the only type of team that counts.
Beat the Packers? Forget it. They are the team to beat, as much as we hate to admit it.
Bears couldn’t even beat the Lions on Mon Night when they were on their winning streak. Cutler looked like a man running away from Grim Death, because he was–but he was STILL completing passes with that magic arm. Jon Gruden was running out of superlatives.
And we’re not giving him the BEST O-line and receivers we can find??!?
This fucking organization does NOT support its quarterbacks….
I’m talking about how we felt about the ’85 Bears. Playing the games was a fucking formality. You KNEW.
The ’85 Bears played two playoff games before the Super Bowl.
No one scored a fucking point on them. Not a field goal.
THAT’S what I’m talking about. THAT’S a playoff team.
Fro….it would be easier and less painful to just hold a lighter up to the $25000. I’ll bet he doesn’t sell one car with that deal. And even if he does, I’d bet Green Bay would score within 7 minutes after kickoff.
Payton…..shouldn’t that title be “The dick behind the asshole”? With co-stars…..the fans!
I have a question for all bears fans….how is cutler out with a broken thumb when ben has a broken thumb….sprained ankle already clinched a plaoff birth getting ready to play st louis and he wants to play
Robert….From what I heard it’s where Cutler broke his thumb. Cutler broke it much lower down his thumb than Ben did. I think Bens break was above the first joint, almost under the nail. It wouldn’t affect his play the Cutlers break would. Ben didn’t need surgery to put in any screws or pins. Cutler did. I’m not 100% sure of all the details, but I think it’s close.
The ankle I can’t answer you. Maybe they just shot it up with some real good stuff.
Hey fro the first incident was proven false….you call him rapistberger thats ok remember you guys havehadtank johnson and sam i left dallas cause they sell pepsi cause i want to work for coke hurd….his two superbowl rings and 3 superbowl appearances and 4 afc title game appearances is ok
Robert, you questioning these two injuries is venturing into “JAY CUTLER IS A PUSSY” area, which these guys have not bought into, which I am very happy to see, because fuck that crowd.
Anyway, yea, Fro is right. You have to remember, Robert, that each injury is different. You can’t just assume each broken bone is the same.
And as far as Ben playing, there’s something to be said about a desire to play. There’s also something to be said, at the same time, about a QB who plays when they shouldn’t, and has their worst game since the first game of the year. One should only play through pain if they’re not going to make their team worse.

Dead on with that Yeti. Reminds me of what Favre did to the Jets a few years ago. He was injured, needed surgery (which he got after the team was eliminated) but he stayed on the field and led the Jets down the drain.
