I have seen all I need of the Chicago Bears this season. I know it’s only the preseason but judging from last year’s preseason, the average fan indeed can tell how their team will do just by watching the third game of the preseason. Now before I get to anything else, I want to point something out before fuck tards like Irish Yeti come here (The worse site on the internet) to point out certain stats. One stat that I think he will point is the 1985 Bears team that was winless in their preseason yet went to win the Super Bowl that year.
The response I have to say to that is those two teams are totally different. The 1985 team had a better team. This 2010 team could be the worse we have seen since the 2002 team that went 4-12 in my opinion. Even last year, myself along with the guys over at Fire Ron Turner (Now Fire Mike Martz) were saying that this team just doesn’t look like a contender even with Jay Cutler at quarterback. We were worried about the offensive line which turned out to be shitty. We worried about the secondary. That turned out to be a disaster. And we worried about the defense as a whole which once again turned into a shit fest. Yes. Brian Urlacher was a factor in that shitty defense. But even with him, they probably win one or two more games which puts them at the bubble of the playoffs.
Just like last year, the same questions are there for this 2010 Chicago Bears team:
1. If Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith knew the offensive line sucked the last couple years, why haven’t they tried to make it better? Yes. They draft Chris Williams though they knew he had back problems. That was a bust. They signed Frank Omiyale and that hasn’t done much. So I can’t say they aren’t trying but unfortunately, they haven’t signed the right players. Due to the lack of a decent offensive line, we will not know how well Jay Cutler can be on this team.
2. Will Charles Tillman ever learn how to actually play cornerback? This guy has won some games for the Bears. No doubt about it. He can cause fumbles and get the occasional interception. However as I stated in the past, if you ask him to actually cover a receiver, you are basically fucked as a team. Football is a simple game to figure out. It’s 11 on 11. A player should be able to pick someone on the other team and play defense.
3. The defense as a whole. Is Brian Urlacher finished? It sure looks like it. Even before his injury last year, he looked slow on reading the offense. How about the rest of the linebackers? Lance Briggs always seems to bring it but will guys like Hillenmeyer and Tinoisomoa help out? Julius Peppers gets signed to big money does that mean he will do well when no one else on the defensive line is great?
4. Special teams. Let me continue to beat the dead horse on this issue. Devin Hester will be good being a third wide receiver. Forget him winning two or three games alone taking back kicks and punts. Lovie Smith and Jerry Angelo think he’s the next Jerry Rice. This is for a lack of a better term, pathetic. The ineptitude and lack of football knowledge by Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith will prove to be costly once again this season.
So buckle up Bears fans. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. I would love to be totally wrong on all of this but I don’t see it. I want the Bears to win and win a lot. I just don’t see it with this team. Too many questions and no answers to go with any of them. I would like 11 or 12 wins but I think at best, 8-8 sounds just about right.
