Bears win but let’s not put too much stock into this.

by

The Bears barely won against the now 0-8 Bills in Toronto by the score of 22-19 Sunday afternoon. The Bears had a balanced offense (About damn time.) and they did just enough to win. The offensive line probably played their best game of the season. This was in large part to Roberto Garza coming back. He did a nice job along with J’Marcus Webb on the right side. The defense was just good enough to hang on.

Offense: The offense wasn’t dominating but once again, good enough to win. Cutler was lucky not have a couple of those passes intercepted as he continued to try to throw in double and sometimes triple coverage throughout the game. That has to stop. Sometimes, the best thing to do is to either throw it out of bounds or just take the damn sack. The offensive line as I mentioned earlier played much better. Cutler was able to have some time to throw the ball and even run it.

The rushing game was OK at best. The stats (Cue the idiots) weren’t impressive, but it shows that if you can run the ball anywhere between 20-30 times a game, you have a chance to win. Forte had 14 carries for 49 yards and Taylor had 10 carries for only 13 yards but he did get a touchdown. The receivers had a good game. Earl Bennett scored the game winning touchdown and had four catches. Olsen, Forte and Knox each had three receptions. Balance was the key to winning this game. If three to four players each get a few catches a piece, your chances of winning are better.

Defense: The Bears were playing well on defense until the last drive in the first half. I know they forced three turnovers but the reality remains that the Bills aren’t the greatest team out there and that’s why they attained the win. In my opinion, I think NFL teams now know the recipe on how to score easily on the Bears defense. Simply put, all teams have to do is run a hurry up offense. This is where the Bears look like total shit. The secondary like usual looks clueless but even more in a hurry up situation.

Late in the first half, Charles Tillman (Fuck you) had a late hit which lead to the Bills tying the game. By the way, everytime I say Charles Tillman’s name, I will put in parentheses (Fuck you). Moving on. Tillman (Fuck you) also let Steve Johnson (Who the hell is he?) to have  a Jerry Rice type game with 11 catches and 145 yards. There were also instances in which Tillman (Fuck you) allowed the likes of Roscoe Parrish, Fred Jackson and Lee Evans to get big first downs. There isn’t anything we can do about it though. A cornerback who cannot play cornerback is who he is. I can’t wait for the idiots like Irish Yeti or some other douche to reply “But Tillman had seven tackles and two assisted tackles!” What these douches don’t understand is that he had seven tackles and two assisted tackles because the receivers he was suppose to cover were open all damn day.

The defensive line is playing really well though along with the linebackers. Urlacher and Briggs are playing at a high level. They virtually gave the Bills no running game but this also led to Ryan Fitzpatrick to go “I-Pass” on the secondary. Tommie Harris actually did something productive and was one of the players who caused Fred Jackson to fumble the ball. Julius Peppers seemed to have been hurt towards the end of the game but said he just had the wind knocked out of him so that’s good news.

So here are the Bears at 5-3. I still stand by my word that this season is over. The Vikings are in town next week after a huge come from behind win against the Cardinals. If the Bears can somehow pull this one off, their season MAY be shortly revived. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though.

    Fro….The rushing game gets an F from me. Here’s why. And pay attention all you stats geeks.

    The Bears rushed 31 times for 105 yards. 3.4 yards per carry.

    Jay Cutler: 5 rushes for 39 yards. 7.8 yards per carry.

    The rest of the “team”: 26 rushes for 66 yards. 2.5 yards per carry.

    No amount of analysis is going to change this. Those are the game stats. It happened. Once again, Jay Cutler has to prop up an offense that couldn’t find it’s ass with both hands and a road map. And remember this also; Buffalo is ranked dead last in the league in defending the run. The Bears may have won the game, but they sure as hell looked like they didn’t want to. And tomorrow we get to watch Lovie Baker puff out his chest and act like a goddamn genius.

    And somebody needs to tell Brian Urlacher to shut the fuck up. His quote after the game? “We found a way to get it done.” Hey dipshit, you “find a way to get it done” with a 0-7 team. You beat the living shit out them. Fucking idiot.

    Chucky,

    I know the running game didn’t do that well and I know what you mean. The thing is, since they still attempted to run it half the time, this prevented Cutler from throwing the ball even more which would have let to more interceptions. A couple of his incomplete passes should have been interceptions but if he threw the ball 10 more times instead of running it, no doubt a couple of those are picks.

    The way I see it, they need to balance the offense every game. Even if they only gain 40 yards on 30 attempts. The offense won’t look so obvious like it was in the other games.

  3. chucky Says:

    You’re right about balancing the offense. But here is what I really was getting at. Was Cutler rushing because that was what Martz wanted him to do, or was Cutler running for his life because he had no open receivers? I admit, I missed most of the game, because I was doing stuff outside. But if he has to run the ball for that many yards I’m thinking his receivers weren’t open. I don’t know the individual rushing yardage per play. But I bet that those 5 rushes were supposed to be pass plays.

    But don’t listen to me, Fro. Remember, all the experts think I don’t know anything.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By the way, that makes the offensive play calling a little more unbalanced.

    Errrrrr….I think.

  5. genrebuster Says:

    Wade Phillips fired but Lovie gets to keep his job…

    Wrecks Grossman replacing Donovan McNabb…

    Jim Hendry still Cubs GM (oops, wrong thread)

    What is the world coming to?

    Bears vs. Cowboys, that would be the Game of the Century!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

  6. chucky Says:

    The world is about to end Genre……

  7. genrebuster Says:

    ..in that case, Cubs win, Cubs win, Cubs win! (oops, wrong thread again…pass the tea please)

  8. chucky Says:

    Genre…tea? Don’t you mean Kool-aid?

  9. erniesarmy Says:

    Wassup guys?

    Who cares about the Cubs, leave em to their misery. What’s another 100 years to Ricketts?

    I still pick the Bears to win the Central. I’m a Packer fan who still thinks the Packers are doing it with mirrors. The chariot will turn into a pumpkin soon watch and see.

  10. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Dear Mr. Ricketts,

    It has been 3 years since I last entered Wrigley Stadium. My wife wants me to take her and our 4 year old daughter next summer when I return home. If I do indeed return there, will I still have to pee into the sinks or will you have brand new stalls?

    Do you believe that if your team is actually competitive that you will make more money? Or is the money that you are making now good enough for you?

    One last question: Will Jim Hendry will be replaced by then? If so, will the next GM actually have a brain? Will he make smart baseball decisions? Will you let him sign players to outrageous contracts even if they aren’t good at playing baseball?

    Yeah, I thought the Bears were going to lose (before the game started). Very glad they didn’t, obviously.
    Cutler did get some more or less impressive runs in, which I think is good. I’m hoping it shows that he’s less willing to throw the stupid balls he has been good at, but it’s too early to tell.

    I would LOVE a win against the Vikings. But like you said, that win Sunday was insane. I hate him but Favre can still be an NFL quarterback, even at the age of ancient. (Okay, only ancient for football and not real life, but I can’t help it.)

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
