Bears/Broncos recap.


Hester The Molester

Before I get to the recap, did anyone else hear Cris Collinsworth mention a “three-some” with Jay Cutler, Greg Olsen and his wife before halftime? He mentioned it while talking about Cutler becoming good friends with Olsen and how he went out with him and his wife and he said something along the lines “They have became a three-some”. I found it fucking hilarious so if I find a video of it, I will post it here.

Now on to the game…

Jay Cutler getting booed was flat out stupid. I understand that he said that the Bears fans are more “passionate” than Broncos fans a few weeks back but Denver was pissed before that. If you feel like you are doing a great job at work and this new boss comes in, knowing fully how well you have done, but still wants to get rid of you? I think we all would be pissed off because that is what happened in this situation.

It is hard to get excited about this team right now, but I really like what I see. This team is much improved on both sides and players seem comfortable with their roles. Sunday night, the Bears played great on both sides and a few players have been getting noticed.

Offense: Cutler kicking ass. And a good sign is that he is getting everyone on offense involved. He found at least five different receivers in the half he played and each had at least two catches. These receivers aren’t the greatest but he is getting the best out of each one. 15/21, 144 yards, 1 TD.

Matt Forte is showing to be an important part to this offense. He scored two touchdowns (One running, one receiving). Not only that, he is a good blocker too. If you need him as a back, he can do it. If you need him to line up in a slot, he can do that too. He is a very good all-around offensive player. Good thing now that the Bears actually have a quarterback, he won’t be worked as much as he was last year when he lead the team in both rushing and receiving.

The receivers and tight ends are doing well. Greg Olsen may be the starting tight end but Desmond Clark is still needed. They both seem to be getting a fair share of passes thrown to. Earl Bennett is showing that he is comfortable in his role and he says he knows the playbook.

On defense: Kevin Payne in my opinion is the most surprising player on defense this preseason. He has played well in the last two games. Sunday night, he had five tackles and kept Denver from making big plays in the secondary. It would be nice if he keeps this up because the Bears cannot afford to have Craig Stetlz or Danieal Manning playing more. Brian Urlacher is showing that he is healthy and ready to go and Lance Briggs has a good game with four tackles and an assist.

The Bears have one more preseason game against the Browns this Thursday night. The starters are only expected to play a series or two. I am still looking forward to the game because I want to see how well some of the 2nd/3rd string and to also think about what this team has in case of an injury down the road.

Til next time.

    There is still some questionable defense in the secondary. They gave up several passes which led to very big gains for the Broncos. Now this could be because some players are still missing due to injuries, but it still worries me. But I think the offense can make this an 11 or more win team.

    Ha…the threesome quote caught my attention, too. That 2-minute drill at the end of the 1st half was fun to watch. Cutler looked like a real quarterback.

  3. Nemo Says:

    I’m a Bear fan-what’s a real quarterback?

  4. Sandberg23 Says:

    As much as Cutler is looking for Aromashadu they better keep this guy on the roster and probably a starter as well. It looks like they got some chemistry there with each other. I was pretty happy with the defense I thought they played a pretty good game, the offensive line did not play particularly great however. Williams and Pace having guys fly by them is kind of scary.

  5. genrebuster Says:

    good point Nemo…Sid Luckman? Before my time but I heard he was real good.

  6. Fro Dog Says:

    I did notice the offensive line being a little off early in the game. Good thing there is depth with that part of the team. Pace is old and Williams is playing like a usual Jerry Angelo #1 draft pick.

    They still have Josh Beekman and he played well last year. If not, the Bears did pick up two veterans in Kevin Shaffer and Frank Omiayle. I think the line will be fine.

    I have had insomnia the last few nites thinking about going to wrigley and counting sheep to see if I can fall asleep

  8. Nemo Says:

    Anybody see the pregame where they showed some Bronco fans entering the stadium dressed like big babies, with diapers and everything? Not that you could ever feel proud doing that, but they must have been particularly proud when Cutler burned them all half. I mean, seriously, dressed like that for a preseason game? I know there are better things to do in Denver.

    personal message for genrebuster I just became a fan of yours on facebook

    I saw that too. It seemed like the crowd was into like it was a regular season game.

    The Broncos have actually always been my second favorite team all these years. John Elway was one of my favorite players growing up.

    The fans are pissed over there. I can understand that. But they also have to understand that they should be booing management and the new coach rather than Cutler. If they hadn’t fired Shannahan, which is what they shouldn’t have done to begin with, this isn’t a discussion.

  13. Sandberg23 Says:

    Right on Fro. The Denver fans should be booing management and They’re wannabe Belichek head coach. Did anybody notice the cutoff sleeves on the hooded sweatshirt?? Gimme a break.

    I’m a Packer fan, and I believe the race for the Central comes down to the Bears and Packers, with the Lions third and the Vikings last.

    Brett Favre has already caused ripples in the locker room, now wait until a game where he throws five interceptions then blames the reporters for making a big deal out of it. If you think the last four weeks of the season were rough for the Jets, just wait Viking fans, you ain’t seen nothin yet.

  15. Fro Dog Says:


    I don’t think any of the readers here are Viking fans. So that is a good thing. I can have respect for Packer fans like you, Mike and JimmyD because most fans are just like you and not obnoxious.

    I’ve mentioned this a couple times before but I thought the Vikings would be fine with Rosenfels as the quarterback. I actually think Favre will make that team worse.
