Still looking on the outside…

by

About damn time you do something productive.

So the Bears beat another bad team but unfortunately, the Lions could not pull one out against the Vikings so the Bears are still behind a game with three left. From what I understand, the Vikings also hold all tie-breakers just in case they end up being tied with the Bears at the end of the regular season.

Kyle Orton did a nice job throwing the ball although for the second week in a row, receivers have problems catching whatever is thrown to them. Orton seems to be healthy. It is up to the players around him to start producing other than Matt Forte.

The defense did enough to stop Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew. The secondary and corner backs still need to learn how to defend and stay on their guy. Danieal Manning was productive for a change as he intercepted a pass on the first drive of the game and provided good field position on special teams.

The Bears play the Saints on Thursday on the NFL Network. In Chicagoland, the game will be on channel 50. Personally, I hate Thursday night games. It doesn’t give players a chance to rest a full week and not everyone gets the channel.

An old friend of mine told me about a website that you can watch live sports for free as long as you have a decent computer with high speed internet. I heard about it last year but recently, I have been using it and I must say, it is the best. You can watch any sports game at your computer live. If anybody does not get NFL Network or does not live in Chicagoland and wants it, just let me know and I will email the link with instructions on how to set it up. It is very easy to do.

– Also, I am attending my first Blackhawks game next Sunday. That should be awesome.

    Helluva catch by Olsen for the TD. What a boring second half. I want to know how a 6-6 team fighting for its playoff life is content with a 20-3 lead at halftime? Accomplish something-then be content.

    My prediction is bears will have a chance to make the playoffs on the last weekend with some crazy scenarios like 4 other teams having to lose, one team having to win by 21 but less than 30, and another team must score exactly 4 points (win or lose). Most of these improbables will happen (including the team scoring 4 points) giving bears fans hope, but then the last improbable will not happen and Bears fans will be crushed again.

    More stuff about Peavy going to the Cubs. But we possibly lose Derosa to Phillies. NOOOO! I like Derosa, he was a catalyst to our offense last season. Send DP DLee there instead. I would totally be happy with losing Michael Weurtz though.

    As far as the Bears go, we should have kicked the shit out of the Jags, instead of getting content and playing relaxed. Defense got the job done but is still totally overrated and can’t stop a good quarterback from passing long.

    Matt Forte is still amazing!

    Sorry to be “off topic”…but I love it when ASSHOLES get in trouble…HA HA HA HA HA HA

    “Hold up that (expletive) Cubs (expletive),” she (the guv’nor’s wife) says as her husband is talking on the telephone. “(Expletive) them.”

    Why are comments being moderated now?

    I agree: keep DeRosa, trade DP Lee. As for Weurtz: BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARF. I was hoping he’d follow Howry out of town.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
