A win is a win, I suppose.

by

I am glad the Bears won just like any other fan. They beat a team they were suppose to beat and while it was a bit ugly on the offensive side, I saw some good things. The Bears guarantee themselves another week on top of the division. This game was all about turnovers and stupid penalties on both teams. By penalties, let’s just say that the Rams would do something stupid and the Bears tried to do them one better. We’ll get to that and much more below.

Offense: I thought the play-calling was a bit better by Tice this week. I still felt that they should have ran the ball some more in this game but they did just enough to score points. Michael Bush had a good game and was able to score a touchdown. Cutler made some terrible throws in this game. He was only sacked twice and he did have some plays where he had time to throw but damn. He was picked off once and was nearly picked off at least two more times. That being said, the receivers like Marshall and Jeffery dropped some easy passes. So about those penalties, some false start penalties hurt the Bears. The Rams had a roughing the kicker that lead to the Bears scoring first. Then, there was a roughing the passer penalty by the Rams that lead to the Bears first touchdown to make 10-0. Point being, thanks to the stupidity of the Rams, the Bears were able to cash in.

Defense: They played really well in this game. There was the last drive before halftime that pissed me off because that’s usually what they  do. It’s the garbage “prevent” defense that in reality, prevents the Bears from stopping the other team. I had a feeling that Bradford was going to figure things out in the second half but they decided to go for it on fourth down at the start of the half only to fail. What sucked is that the Bears should have been up much more in this game as it was only 10-6 heading to the last quarter. But the Bears front four forced a lot of pressure on Bradford resulting in six sacks. I must say that one guy who needs to be recognized for his play is Amobi Okoye. He had three tackles, a sack and could have had at least one or two more. Israel Idonije was awesome in this game as well. A shout out goes to Tim Jennings. He had another stellar game. Along with his interception was a deflection by him that turned into the Major Wright interception return for a touchdown. You see what happens when the secondary covers receivers?

Getting back to stupid penalties, Julius Peppers made one that could have fucked the Bears in the second half. The Bears made a stop on third down to get the ball back and Peppers pushed Stephen Jackson during a scuffle and gave the Rams a new set of downs. Luckily, the made the stop and got the ball back. Play a better team and you probably pay for that decision.

Special Teams: I thought Hester had a couple nice returns and was a broken tackle or two away from taking one all the way back. But just to tell you how he affects field position, the punter for the Rams kicked the ball out of bounds for most of his punts and with the others, he still tried to pin him into the corner. Eventually, Hester will be able to capitalize off of them. Robbie Gould nailed three field goals including one from 54 yards. Good work.

Next up are the Cowboys on Monday night. It’s a must-win.

    “It’s the garbage “prevent” defense that doesn’t prevent anything other than the other team scoring points.”

    This may be my favorite line in the history of you. Thanks, sir.

  2. Fro Dog Says:

    Let me fix that. I was a bit exhausted after the game.

  3. Fro Dog Says:

    Fixed. It could be worse. I could mess up in posts like Hockeenight does sometimes. Those guys suck.

  4. chucky Says:

    Fro…did you hear any of the numbnuts post game press conference. I’ll paraphrase:

    “Some games you have to score 41 points to win. Other you score 20.”

    It went something like that. My point in all this is that he seems to know this before the game is played. I got the impression that he felt the Bears needed to rack up 41 points against Indy, but against the Rams, 23 is enough. This is how we’ll gameplan it.

    Jesus fucking Christ I HATE THIS GUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so fucking sick of his conservative, close to the vest game planning I could scream. I would love nothing more than to see someone lock this cocksucker in a portable toilet, tip it over, then light the fucker on fire! Or just simply push him out of a helicopter screaming. Or disembowel him with a wooden cooking spoon. Any of those will work for me.

    Keep being you, Chucky. Keep being you

  6. genrebuster Says:

    I think odds are very good that Lovie will be gone at the end of the season…until then, carry on!

  7. chucky Says:

    Yeti….explain.

  8. genrebuster Says:

    Two possibilities come to mind:

    1. Yeti really likes you and/or your rants, chucky.
    2. Yeti is reaching for new heights of smugness.

    …did I miss something?

  9. Fro Dog Says:

    The replacement referees have just screwed the Packers out of a victory.

    Can the owners/union force Goodell to resign? Unbelievable.

  10. Jimmy D. Says:

    WOW!!! What an embarrassment that is. FUCK THESE PIECE OF SHIT REFEREES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. genrebuster Says:

    Door #1 – Goodell Door #2 – Selig Door #3 – ???

  12. Fro Dog Says:

    Scott,

    Door #3 belongs to Gary Bettman. Door #4 belongs to David Stern.

    I think that’s a fair statement.

  13. Pie In The Sky Says:

    I’m not even mad at the refs anymore. Roger Goodell, the owners, and whoever trained these refs can fuck off. These refs are obviously not prepared for these regular-season games (or even preseason games). How the hell are they this bad? They don’t even know the simple rules that us football fans know after watching football for maybe six weeks (e.g. BLOW THE PLAY DEAD ON A FALSE START).

    Fuck.

  14. genrebuster Says:

    Goodell is becoming the quintessential jerkoff, a real tool.

    The way to end this travesty sooner is for fans to boycott the games until the real ref’s come back…

    …it’s truly PATHETIC that so many sheeple are willing to pay big bucks for complete and utter BS…Example #1: The Chicago Cubs!!

    BAAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  15. chucky Says:

    Genre…..I’ll bet that those Cubs sheeple who will show up for the Houston series that will put an end to this nightmare season will be all happy and drunk as hell and singing “Go, Cubs, Go” as the Cubs win game # 63. Of course, win #63 will come on October 3rd, and those dumb fucks won’t notice, because they’ll be busy standing in line for World Series tickets.

  16. DVXPrime Says:

    genrebuster, I dig your idea of a boycott, but it’ll never happen…no matter how badly “the product” is fucked up, no matter how bad the economy, people will still shell out money for NFL football.

    I wonder how many people will damage their credit cards or waste good hard cash to see THE WORST TWO TEAMS IN BASEBALL? If there is any justice, there won’t be 5K people in the stands, just like the seventies. Let the Stuporstation WGN show that on live TV…that’ll make for a nice bargaining chip when they next get into a pissing match w/DirectV or Dish Network to show their shitty channel.

    Go Fire Go…daddy needs something to believe in…

  17. MadCityMac Says:

    I hate Roger Goodell and his lap dog Greg Aiello as much as I hate Crane Kenney, and that’s saying something. I won’t watch another NFL game until these cocksuckers pay the regular refs. I will boycott every single advertiser and sponsor of the NFL, and I’ll make sure they know WHY I’m boycotting them. THis fucking shit has to stop now. I’m sure it’s cheap pricks like that shitstain Jerry Jones and that pompous little piece of shit Dan Snyder who are just loving the fact they are paying next to nothing for these incompetent fuckups. Screw it, I can actually find something better to do

  18. Fro Dog Says:

    Mike,

    You are exactly right. Goodell, like every other commissioner in sports, gets paid by the owners. Snyder and Jones are probably the leaders of this fiasco with the referees. Until something happens to one of their teams because, they’ll start bitching.

    By the way, since the Packers don’t have an owner, who handles this situation with the other owners? Is it Mark Murphy or even their board of directors?

  19. MadCityMac Says:

    Fro, I’m sure it would be Mark Murphy. Looks like the lockout might be over after all, unfortunately after the Packers got one up the ass Monday!

  20. Fro Dog Says:

    No shit. Most of the insiders said “there is no end in sight” for this lockout and then, all of a sudden after Monday, they started renegotiating again. I wonder how that miracle happened.

  21. Pie In The Sky Says:

    I like how they tried to get people to buy their bullshit statement about how the call was correct. How stupid do they think fans are?

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
