    What? Me pissed off? Don’t be silly.

    Fro….did you see the so-called expert picks on the Bears game this week? About half actually think the Bears will beat Green Bay. I guess it’s just proof we’ve lost the war on drugs. And now they’re saying Cutler has a low grade MCL sprain, but should be good to go.

    Excuse me now while my head explodes.

    Well, these “experts” are in the “On any given Sunday” mode, but there is a difference between that and the Chicago Bears. I remember earlier in the year when a few of the idiots that disagreed with us, said that this team was good because they were 5-1, 6-1, etc. Then, I kept mentioning that if it wasn’t for a certain play here or there along with the Bears defense still giving up massive amounts of yards, that eventually, they would start losing those games.

    I am not an expert myself as you know. I just sit there and watch each game like everyone else. The only difference is, my TV isn’t deceiving. Of course the Bears can’t win every game. We know that. But they can at least show up and make us think they have a chance to win rather than knowing that they are going to get their asses kicked.

    It doesn’t matter if Lovie shows “fire and passion” or not. I don’t give a crap if he is sitting there speechless or screaming at people. That doesn’t mean anything. But at the very least, he can put the best players on the field rather than being a delusional dumbass and thinking that Devin Hester is a wide receiver and that Eric Weems is a returner.

    Well said. I never liked the philosophy of being so dependent on the defense to do everything, including scoring points. Sooner or later, that philosophy will come back and bite you on the ass. As old as some of the guys are, it happened about 8 games into the season. It’s good to be able to do it from time to time, but you can’t depend on that happening every week. What is needed here is a head coach that exploit teams vulnerable to that type of defense when they play, and then being able to formulate some new and maybe creative for other teams. Look what Harbaugh has done in San Francisco. Anybody see that coming? I didn’t. In other words, the Bears need a head coach capable of thinking outside the box, and capable of game planning for each week. And that guy is not Lovie Smith.

    Despite what fucking idiots like Greg think.

    Chucky and Fro, My guess is the Packers will win this game, but I also wouldn’t bet my life on it. They’re winning but not looking so good doing it. They may have found a running game and a right tackle so I’m feeling a little better about them than I did a couple weeks ago. That said, the Bears will probably play as well as they are capable of given THEIR injuries. With the Packers, at least Matthews seems to be on the mend, but they are going to be missing Jordy Nelson and I don’t think Greg Jennings is completely healthy yet. Then there’s Mr. Stonehands, Jermichael Finley, who I have absolutely no confidence in at all. Hell, with all the injuries on both teams, it’s going to look like a damn M*A*S*H unit out there. I guess the Packers’ advantages are Rodgers over Cutler, the Packers still have a couple of good receivers healthy in James Jones and Randall Cobb, and as we all know, Mike McCarthy puts Lovie to shame. Kicking should be about even since Gould got hurt; I don’t know what Olindo Mare has left in the tank, and Mason Crosby has flat-out sucked this year, though he seems to be coming around a little bit. And I’m babbling! Hope you guys have a good weekend!
