THIS TEAM IS DRIVING ME FUCKING NUTS. Every time Jay Cutler goes down, I hold my breath. Every time the Bears don’t run the damn ball when they are suppose to, I want to punch Mike Tice in the fucking nuts. Every time I see Jay Cutler go down hard, I hold my breath. Every time the Bears suck ass on defense by allowing teams to drive willingly down the field late in games, I want to throw my remote across the room. The Bears should have been up at least 20 and instead, they are an onside kick recovery away from losing the game because let’s face it, the Lions would have won the game because the Bears, all of a sudden, went back to being chicken shit.
Offense: “DAT JAY CUTLER IZN’T TOUGH TO PLAY CHICAGO BEAR FOOTBALL MY FRENDT.” FUCKING MOTHERFUCKER. PROTECT THIS GUY DAMNIT. Because if the line cannot protect him, sooner or later, we’re going to witness more than just two or three plays from
Jason Campbell Todd Collins and he sucks. The Bears should seriously consider signing another quarterback. I don’t give a crap if it’s Josh McCown or (Here’s the meatball in me talking) Chandler Harnish to the roster. As soon as Cutler went down, I immediately thought it was a concussion or a broken collarbone. He was also sacked five times. On the first drive, the Bears score a touchdown. It looked like they were on their way to kicking to shit out of the Lions. They get two field goals but on that last one, the Bears had 1st and goal at the 4 and three straight passes were called; two of which were nearly picked off. RUN. THE. FUCKING. BALL. DAMNIT. The offense was missing most of this game. For crying out loud, can the false start/holding/unnecessary roughness penalties stop? Also, get Devin Hester away from the offense. He isn’t a wide receiver. He will never be a wide receiver.
Defense: The defense kicked ass in the first half. Props to Charles Tillman for making sure Calvin Johnson wasn’t a factor. While only getting three catches, he forced two fumbles and knocked the ball out of Johnson’s hands in the endzone which sustained the shutout to that point. As the Bears defense usually goes in all of these years, they seem to take their foot off of the gas in the second half and let teams back in games. We saw that in this game. Stafford drove the Lions down the field with ease only for some fluke fumbles and an interception with a desperate throw. Too bad Stafford didn’t give a shit about his face being in the grass after that interception because he got the ball back and promptly, scored on the Bears defense and gave his team a chance. The defense cannot rely on forcing turnovers every game. This shit will slide in these types of games but in the playoffs, if they get there, they will be fucked. I give credit where credit is due but the defense gave up 340 yards; most of them in the second half. I cannot understand why they can’t just stick to what has worked like in the last few games. Getting back to those fluke fumbles, if Joique Bell doesn’t fumble at the goal line, the Bears probably lose this game.
Special Teams: Robbie Gould nailed two field goals and another was blocked. The special teams did recover a fumble by Stefan Logan and it lead to one of those field goals. Two things pissed me off about the special teams. First, what’s with the illegal block in the back/holding penalties? Why do players do this while knowing it’s not allowed? It’s fucking annoying on every level. Lastly, Devin Hester should be back on every kickoff/punt. There were some punts where he wasn’t on the field. Is Lovie that stupid to think that someone else back there is better?
Ugh. The Panthers are in town Sunday. I don’t care about their 1-5 record. If anybody remembers last year’s game (I was there), Cam Newton had a field day but the Bears found a way outscore them.
