Just an idea…

November 29, 2009

With the Bears season being over for about three weeks now, does anybody see the point in continuing to play Jay Cutler? The guy clearly isn’t safe with this offensive line. He was once again running for his life just about every time he dropped back to pass. And to be honest, every game the rest of this season is meaningless. There is no point in playing him and risking injury with the possibillity of it having a long term affect.

So call me crazy, but the Bears should start Caleb Hanie or at least give him a good amount of playing time the rest of this season just to see how he can do. I am not expecting much but Cutler clearly isn’t doing the job. I am not writing him off because I know the offensive line sucks along with the receivers not knowing the plays. But still, there is nothing to lose with playing Hanie or any of the other backups in other positions.

And you never know. Maybe there are some players who haven’t seen the field yet that might be able to help this team win in the future.

Happy Thanksgiving.

In Chicago, there isn’t much to be thankful for in terms of the Bears or Bulls. Although the Blackhawks and Illini basketball are going to be keeping me busy this winter. We will see how those two teams pan out in the coming months.

So anyway, I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving to you and your families.

Fuck. This. Team.

Be careful what you wish for.

Fire Ron Turner petition.

November 15, 2009

The good guys over at Fire Ron Turner are starting a petition calling for the duties of Ron Turner to be relieved. Here I am just passing the word around. I already signed it. If you guys want to, just click here. I said in the previous post that Lovie isn’t getting fired anytime soon but good ol’ Ron could be sometime. Besides, there’s nothing to lose. Right?

Bears’ season over.

November 12, 2009

Well. That’s it. I told all of guys that I wanted to wait to see what happened with this game before making my decision. The Bears will not make the playoffs (not official but 99.9% doubtful). Well, at least the defense did something good albeit a crappy 49ers offense.

Thanks goes out to Jay Cutler for making me think of Rex Grossman.

Thanks goes out to the offensive line for not letting Matt Forte get any yards and for almost getting Jay Cutler killed on every play. Also, big props to the wide receivers for not knowing how to run a fucking route.

Special thanks to Ron Turner and his predictable plays such as the wide receiver screen to Devin Hester for two yards. Or Dan and Carl’s favorite predicatable play: The I-Formation of Death.

Finally, I want to give thanks to Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith. Thanks for taking the best kick/punt returner in football and transforming him into a mediocre 3rd receiver.

There is enough blame to go around and not solely on one or two people. From Cutler to the offensive line. To the secondary and the coaching.

I have bad news for you guys: Lovie Smith isn’t getting fired. Maybe next season sometime but not this season or during the offseason. As much as I want him gone now after I defended him numerous times the past couple years, he isn’t going anywhere. Deal with it.

Fuck these damn pricks.

One last thing, I must give credit to reader Captain Kirk for his prediction of this game about two weeks ago and the rest of you guys for telling me that I was wrong by defending Lovie and this team. I was wrong and the rest of you were right.

The Bears game Thursday night will be on channel 50 for those living in the Chicagoland area.

For you guys living outside Chicago and can’t get NFL Network, if you want to watch the game online for free, let me know. I will give you a couple websites where you can watch it.

Bears down 21-7 in the 2nd. Game over.

That’s right. The game is over. If they don’t win Thursday, their season will be over.

It doesn’t really matter.

Can someone protect this guy?

The Bears beat the Browns on Sunday 30-6. If you look at just the stats and score (Cue Irish Yeti), you would probably think the Bears totally dominated the game. Well, on defense, they did and it was expected. On offense, the running game got going and Cutler had a decent game. But damn. Can the offensive line protect this guy?

Along with the four sacks that he took, Cutler was sandwiched about five other times during the game. I think he has been sacked at least 10 or 15 times so far and only seven games have been played. He got hit in the mouth, had a bloody tongue after biting it and I don’t know how the hell he got back up after a couple of those hits by Shaun Rogers. One of those times, he got up real slowly and the first thing that went through my mind was “Please. Don’t be hurt”. It seems like everytime he steps back to pass, he is running for his life. Well, we still suck. I do not want to see Caleb Hanie out there at all unless the Bears are either up 30 or down 30.

Josh Beekman had the start on the left side of the line in place of Frank Omiyale and that should stay that way. On Sunday, the problems still were there. Kevin Shaeffer should maybe start either in place of Pace which is doubtful or for Chris Williams on the right side. More changes still need to be made. Maybe a lineman is available for the Bears to pick up to try to help this season. Right now, this team is not going far until the line gets fixed.

So in a nutshell, this win does not mean shit. The Bears failed to put more points on the board and especially in the red zone. Matt Forte had a good game which was nice to see. I will give credit to the defense for not allowing Cleveland to use the infamous “I-Pass” against the Bears. If the defense sucked on Sunday, then there are more problems than we may think.

A 4-3 record with Arizona coming to town next week isn’t what some of us expected but it could be worse. This is a must win game. As of right now, the Giants, Cowboys, Falcons and Packers all seem to be contenders for the Wild Card spots. The division race is already over with the Vikings pretty much in control. Is it me or are Vikings fans the worse in football? I digress.
