(Heart attack)

by

Frustration. That’s how I felt this entire game. The Bears, who some people thought would just roll over the Vikings, were in a fight to the end. They had numerous opportunities to take the life out of the Vikings early, but poor calls and turnovers messed those up. In addition, the feed kept going in and out and we ended up missing a touchdown by the Vikings at the end of the first half. The Bears didn’t deserve to win (How many times have I said that before?) but regardless, they pulled one of out of their asses to stun the Vikings. Before one of my arteries burst in ANGER, let’s go over this quickly.

Offense: When there is first and goal on the 1, what is the smart thing to do? RUN THE FUCKING BALL. I thought Lovie and his turds for offensive coordinators were fired for a reason? Instead, a bad call by Trestman. I am not off the Trestman bandwagon by any means, but come on, that was a horrible call. If it’s third down, I could understand it. Instead, Cutler throws in a crowd of defenders and it ends up being picked off. Before that, Cutler fumbles the ball while the Bears are mercifully driving down the field and it turns into a touchdown for the Vikings. Cutler was completely off today. He, alone had three turnovers (fumble, two interceptions). He finally put on his big boy pants in the final drive and threw the game-winning touchdown to Martellus Bennett with seconds remaining. Holy shit. A tight end who catches passes and gets touchdowns? We haven’t seen that shit since Ryan Wetnight or even DITKA. MY FRENDTS. Forte ran the ball well but fumbled it in the 4th quarter and that could have sealed the deal had the Vikings scored a touchdown on the following drive. Phew.

Defense: Tim Jennings had an interception for a touchdown. Great. The Bears defense still wasn’t all that great. This is a concern. Adrian Peterson only had 100 yards rushing so they contained him for the most part. However, the drive before halftime was terrible so I am glad we didn’t get to see the touchdown pass that Ponder threw to Kyle Rudolph. At least the Bears held the Vikings to two field goals in the second half. They could have put the game away with a touchdown in their last possession. The defense needs to get better in a hurry. One of these games, the breaks aren’t going to go their way if this doesn’t change.

Special teams: Hester is awesome. He nearly took back two or three all the way. The conditions might have had something to do with it but he gave the Bears great field position throughout the game. And before I forget, Cordarrelle Patterson took one back on the opening kickoff for the Vikings. Bad coverage by the Bears there.

The Bears don’t get style points but it’s a win. 2-0 and a meeting with the Steelers in Pittsburgh next Sunday Night.

    Fro….I agree with you to some extent that Trestman made some bad calls, and that maybe the the Bears didn’t deserve to win this game. But don’t forget this: They would not have won this game had the previous idiot regime hadn’t been shwon the door. Instead, we would be listening to Smith telling us how much he likes his team, and making bullshit excuses for JaMarcus Webb.

    One good thing about the rain this afternoon. The White Sox game has been delayed to this point, and Doug and OB are doing their show now instead of that moron Chris Rongey. I’ve emailed the Score several times to try to just get a response from them about my complaints of their stupid Sox coverage. No answer. Of course, it may have something to do with my being extremely critical of their programming decisions, along with my rather coarse language. Personally though, I think it’s more cowardice on their part. Corporate figureheads HATE being told that they made
    a mistake.

    By the way, they just fielded a call from some chump stating that how Emery ran Smith out of town “was a joke”. Some people will never learn. Your thoughts?

    “hadn’t been shwon the door”?

    Let’s make that “shown” the door. Yikes, that was bad!

    I cannot believe some of the meatballs are still defending that idiot. He’s long gone and while we make comparisons, no one in their right mind should ever defend him. I agree that once again, that if Lovie is in charge, they don’t win this game either. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take it but things the play-calling needs to get better.

    Yes. I love it when Buffone and O.B. are on but I am trying to take it easy with listening to them this year. I try to avoid them as much as possible now because listening to some of those idiots call could make me even more insane than I am now.

    Chucky, don’t be so ANGRY!

  4. chucky Says:

    Nah, I’m not angry….not now. Fro, if you want to hear idiots call into a radio show, you need to check the dumb bastards that call Rongey about the Sox. I usually end up with serious blood loss from all the bleeding from both ears. God DAMN, those are some stupid fuckin bastards! Calling them meatballs is far too kind. I’m surprised that they can remember to breathe. And it’s only one reason why I have emailed the station and blasted the hell out them for subjecting normal people to this shit.

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    Chucky, I have a stat (cue Yeti) for you. I just heard this on The Score.

    Martellus Bennett caught the game-winning pass for a touchdown yesterday. That gave him three touchdowns on the year. That’s as many touchdowns as all of the tight ends for the Bears had last year.

    What a difference an offseason makes. I am going to do cartwheels right now.

  6. chucky Says:

    Don’t hurt yourself Fro. Here’s another stat, unrelated to the Bears game, but relevant to yesterdays festivities.

    The Kansas City Chiefs equalled the win total of the 2012 season. By the way, it’s week 2.

    Where is everybody? Fro and I can’t be the only ones willing to comment. The Bears are 2-0 so far.

  7. Cubs Suck Says:

    I think the 2-0 could just as easily be 0-2, would be nice to see a convincing win. Off the subject, anyone watch the Seahawks 49’rs game “The Whistle”? I swear I kept hearing whistles from the stands beginning plays during the first Bears game. Nice to see retards bringing their own ref whistles to games to fuck shit up, Hope they get those whistles crammed up their asses and banned from all future games. Blackhawks vs. Redwings tomorrow! Here we go!

    Hey, chucky, I’m here! No TV, so I haven’t seen a game, only going off what’s being passed on the blogs and stuff. I am off work next week, so I’m going to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the Sunday night game. If not for the long after-midnight drive home, I might go to Hooters up north for the game.

  9. Fro Dog Says:

    DVX,

    I might have mentioned this to you before but I’ll say again: I have some sites you can watch the games online for free (unless you don’t have internet at home which is fine). But since the game is on NBC, you can watch it on their site for free I believe. Check it out. If you want me to email you some sites, let me know. Once again, apologies up front if I mentioned it but I don’t want you or anyone else outside of the area missing out.

  10. Yeti Says:

    I got a TV I can give you, DVX

  11. Fro Dog Says:

    Yeti is correct. He doesn’t watch TV or at least sports anyway. He just reads the box scores. But we all knew that, right?

  12. chucky Says:

    DVX….I’m glad you’re still around. I have always enjoyed your comments. Keep em coming.

    What happened to your TV?

  13. genrebuster Says:

    Fro, please email me the sites…(watch football)

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
