Moving on.

by

It’s the only thing we can do as Bears fans. I am still bitter about the game Sunday as I am sure others here are too. Our good friends at Fire Mike Martz have already said what they think of people calling Cutler a pussy. I would like to echo what they said: If anybody thinks that Cutler quit, fuck off. The guy was sacked nearly 60 times and was probably knocked down another 60. He even had a concussion and still played against the Giants. If I was sacked like he was once, I wouldn’t be able to move for a week.

So as we are moving on with the show, I am not going to talk about firing Smith or Angelo. As much as we want them gone, they are not going anywhere so there is no reason to complain about it. What we can talk about is what the Bears should realistically do in the offseason to make this team better. As we noticed all season, the Bears were lucky all over the place and eventually, it ran out. From the offensive line to the secondary, the Bears need a lot of help.

On offense: While J’Marcus Webb and Chris Williams played much better when they were in their new positions, I am still not sold on either of them. Since the Bears will have at least six picks in the draft this year (barring any dumb Jerry Angelo move), they should draft a lineman and find another one that goes undrafted. Sometimes, the best ones are found in later rounds. Next on offense is a wide receiver or two. I like Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett and Devin Aromashodu, but we need receivers who can actually jump and get the ball rather than wait for the ball to come to them. If they can’t get one through the draft, Braylon Edwards, Vincent Jackson and Plaxico Burress when he gets out of jail later in the summer are available. While Edwards and Jackson may demand a lot of money, Burress will be really cheap. Maybe like Michael Vick, Burress may help a lot more than people expected. I would take a flier on him.

On defense: Tommie Harris is probably going to be gone next year so the Bears will probably need to draft a defensive tackle regardless. A couple names would be Corey Liguet from Illinois (If he enters the draft) or Drake Nevis from LSU. The Bears pick is 29th so it is doubtful they will get a better tackle than these two. While Briggs and Urlacher had great years, they are still getting older. While we all love Urlacher, he has lost a step. The Bears need to to find a linebacker in the draft to play the outside and be able to fill in at the middle slot should Urlacher have problems.

The Bears secondary needs a lot of help. As we saw in the last game of the season, the wonderful “I-Pass” defense returned. In the first half, Aaron Rodgers had his way to with the secondary. I don’t want to hear anything about the “Cover two (who?)” defense or “prevent” garbage that people have discussed all year. Do those schemes mean giving receivers 20 yards to do whatever they want? If you said yes to that question, you should not be allowed to watch football. Charles Tillman (Fuck you) was awful that game. Tim Jennings mimicked him in that game and I couldn’t stand Danieal Manning since he has been in the NFL. If the Bears want to get better as they claim they do, two cornerbacks and at least a safety in the draft or free agency are a must. I want cornerbacks who actually know how to cover a receiver. I want a safety who actually knows that if they are playing that crappy “Cover Who”, that they wouldn’t wander off letting a receiver go down the field for an easy touchdown (Danieal Manning). If the secondary was just decent in the first half against the Packers, the Bears are probably playing in the Super Bowl this year.

As we said, complaining about Angelo and Smith isn’t going to do much because they are both staying put. I only wish the Bears were half ran like the Steelers or Packers. Look at the Steelers who have had only three coaches in their entire franchise are in their seventh Super Bowl. The Packers who are in their fifth Super Bowl appearance, are an organization owned by fans and have management that doesn’t tolerate bullshit (Brett Favre). The Bears on the other hand are owned by a crazy old bitch and her delusional son. Adding on to that is a president who doesn’t know the difference between a football and a basketball. God help us all.

    Not bad, Fro…the final paragraph in particular.

    If the “I-Pass” or “Cover Who” defense is jargon for “only allows 14 points to Green Bay,” I hope the Bears run that scheme for the rest of eternity.

    Fro, could you please tell your friend CT to not ban me on HJE? You also cannot keep banning me because all I have to do is unplug my router so do not even think about it. You can see from all the banning you have done, my IP address is different every time. You are warned.

    JUst please tell your friend to unban me. I wasn’t being mean to him. Please do this other favor for me and apologize to Gil Gunderson. There is an imposter and he thinks it’s you.

    DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

  4. Fro Dog Says:

    Guest,

    Please fuck off. I have no idea what the hell you are talking about. Please do what everyone else who comes here and acts like a jackass: Drive your car onto the Dan Ryan, put it in park, walk out in the middle of the lanes and wait until something happens to you.

    Jim Nantz Underpants,

    The Packers scored on I believe the first two drives. Then like usual, the Bears all of a sudden play defense. But along with that came two more drives where the Packers should have scored with ease. Only a fluke deflection into Briggs’ arms and a miraculous play by Superman (Urlacher) prevented it from being 28-0 so the defense looked much worse than the scored indicated. And regardless of the reports, Rodgers probably suffered another concussion when Peppers knocked him with a vicious hit so that was probably the reason why he wasn’t so great in the second half.

    It’s people like you that do not understand that the Bears secondary would be much better if they just learn how to…play defense. You know, cover receivers, don’t give them 20 yards to run around freely, etc. Even in the “Cover Two”, no receivers should be given 20 yards to do whatever they want. The Bears lack a good secondary and what I have been bitching about all year came back to haunt this team and that’s why they are watching the Super Bowl at home. Don’t forget the “I-Pass” defense that you love so much costs the Bears in the Super Bowl in 2007 when Tillman (Fuck you) and Manning decided that Reggie Wayne was fine running down the field all alone.

    Fro…are you able to delete comments? If so, that would be even better than banning childish jackasses…and the like.

  6. Fro Dog Says:

    Scott,

    I can delete comments but I like to show everyone else here how stupid some of these clowns can be. I find it humorous that they think they are experts and we are the idiots. I have said this a hundred times but we aren’t pessimists, we are realists. And it turns out, we are right most of the time. I don’t know what the exact stats (Cue Irish Yeti?) are, but oh well.

    By the way, how’s NC treating you? Any bad weather down there? We are going to get roughly two feet here in the suburbs and Chicago itself could get two and a half from the lake effect snow. The worst blizzard in Chicago since 1967. My mom said the one in 1979 was pretty shitty too.

  7. Jim Nantz Underpants Says:

    Arguing that the Bears defense would have been terrible if they hadn’t forced turnovers and hadn’t pressured Rodgers… I don’t know how to respond, other than to point out I’m describing what actually happened and you’re describing what didn’t.

    Jay Cutler almost completed two deep passes to Hester in the first quarter that would likely have gone for touchdowns. Therefore, the offense was blowing the Packers away in the first quarter.

  8. jimmyd Says:

    Jim Nantz Underpants,

    I don’t normally like to chime in on these pointless, verbal exchanges…. but I can’t resist with this one.

    Sorry, but if you’re going to call someone out on how retarded their argument is by saying something like “I’m describing what actually happened and you’re describing what didn’t” then you should probably stick with that line of reasoning to solidify your point; especially IF you think you have one. I’ll leave out the drama laced intro of “I don’t know how to respond, other than to point out” (oopps, I guess I didn’t leave it out if I’m bringing it up…oh, well).

    Coming back in the next paragraph and bringing up the “what-ifs” of “Jay Cutler ALMOST completed two deep passes to Hester….that would LIKELY have gone for touchdowns” (and then you had to add “therefore, the offense was BLOWING the Packers away in the first quarter) only drives home the point that you, sir, are a moron. That line of argument is the exact problem facing our country today….people want the rules to apply to everyone else….except themselves. Now, please shut the fuck up so you don’t make yourself look dumber than you have already proven yourself to be.

    According to your line of reasoning, you’d be secure in pointing out that “if your Aunt had nuts, she’d be your Uncle”. Wow!!! That’s some, dee and profound thinking you’re summoning….Jethro.

    GO PACK GO!!!

  9. jimmyd Says:

    Sorry. The last line of the final paragraph should read deep, not dee.

  10. robert Says:

    jimmy I liked your post except the last line should have read here we go steelers here we go

  11. genrebuster Says:

    jimmyd. Most enjoyable reading material, Thank you sir.

    Fro. Some people get offended when informed that they are actually being pissed on (and NOT rained on). Whatever, to each their own.

    My mom and stepdad live a few blocks from the lake (and Wrigley), I hear it’s pretty harsh at the moment!

    As for NC, it has been an interesting winter so far (nothing like the NE or Chicago, of course); several snow/ice events as well as mostly sub-normal temperatures. This is following the hottest summer on record (it was miserable).

    That said the high today will be 72 (!)…but 35 tonite; high tomorrow will be 43. Darkness will set in, clearing up in the morning with scattered light. Go figure.

    Has Jim Hendry been fired yet?

    baaaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  12. chucky Says:

    What I would do see 72 degrees around here right now.

    BITE ME GENRE!!!!

    Just joking buddy. Wish I was there with ya! Hell 43 around here would feel tropical at this point. I’m jealous!

  13. chucky Says:

    Oh, by the genre, it’s supposed to get down to -10 tonight, with wind chills at -30 to -40.

    BITE ME GENRE!!!!!! (Still joking on ya!)

    Is this Bear weather?

  14. Jim Nantz Underpants Says:

    Hi there JimmyD —

    You mean the argument I made at the end of my comment exhibits exactly the same flaw I pointed out in the original post? Wow, what a coincidence! It’s almost like I did that on purpose or something!

    But you’re right, it’s probably more that I have a catastrophic lack of self-awareness. Can you blame me, though? I’m just trying to fit in around here.

  15. genrebuster Says:

    JNU, can’t you do better than that?

    If you truly want to “fit in around here”, please try harder!

    PATHETIC.

  16. genrebuster Says:

    chucky. no offense taken, I dig.

    I was in Chicago the weekend that the Bears played the Colts in the Superbowl…it was bright and sunny…but the HIGH was 1 above zero….wind chills were 24 below (I think Minneapolis registered 42 below). Brutal…and I don’t think there was much-if any-snow/ice on the ground (?). I think it was the coldest temperatures since 1999…

  17. jimmyd Says:

    Jim Nantz Underpants,

    I’m gonna have to side with genrebuster on this one. Keep in mind that I don’t know him any better than I know you; so it’s not like I’m taking sides. I just think that he’s looking at your latest post and is thinking, “Wow! There’s some back pedal work going on there.”

    I’ll be the first to admit when I’m wrong or if I misunderstood something, etc. According to your latest post you’re implying that you intended sarcasm with the following: “Jay Cutler almost completed two deep passes to Hester in the first quarter that would likely have gone for touchdowns. Therefore, the offense was blowing the Packers away in the first quarter”.

    I didn’t understand your post to carry that message at all. I read it as you were making an argument for the Bears offense and that they were only a poor pass or two away from crushing the Packers. I’m certainly not a literary genius, so I’m not going to critique your writing style; I’m just saying that if you truly were being sarcastic….I think there’d have been a better way to write it out.

    If I totally misunderstood your intent and you were trying to make a funny….then, I apologize.

    Later,
    Jimmy D.

  18. genrebuster Says:

    What really stinks — if you were pulling for the Bears, that is — is that they played so poorly in the first half (very little energy, no offense to speak of)…yet, in spite of it still had a real opportunity to tie/beat Green Bay in the final minutes with a 3rd string quarterback at the helm. Unreal.

    I still believe that Lovie Smith is a liability as a head coach.

    That said, FIRE JIM HENDRY is at the top of my wish list.

  19. genrebuster Says:

    To be clear, that the Bears failed to capitalize on the opportunity is what burns me….it’s tough to make it to the NFC title game…

  20. chucky Says:

    genre….The thing that bothers me the most is Lovies ststement that he likes and is comfortable with their QB evaluation process.WHAT. THE. FUCK??? You think it was a good idea to have Todd fucking Collins as fucking backup to Cutler??? That statement alone warrents his immediate dismissal.

    And fucking Angelo first priority? Extending that cocksuckers contract. They’ll get this close to the Super Bowl again. DOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
