Holy shit. What a night. I actually was comfortable up until the fourth quarter when the warmers inside my shoes stopped working. Those extra layers and warmers I had in other places did wonders. For the meatball in me, it was complete. We were lucky enough to see Ditka at halftime and right before closing time, the neck beard (by Cracky) himself, Kyle Orton made a cameo. More importantly, however, I don’t think I have ever seen an offensive performance like this from the Bears to my memory. The Bears scored on every single drive (kneel down at the end being the exception). Seeing how bad the Bears have been on offense since I can even remember, this is unbelievable. To me, it’s really rare for any NFL team to go an entire game and score on every possession because of the law of averages. The Bears beat the Cowboys and now, are tied for first once again.

Offense: You would think that the defense of the Bears is the worst in the NFL and no other team can match that. Rethink that thought. The Cowboys were just as horrible. Like I mentioned above, I find it rare for a team to score on every possession in a game, but it did. But holy shit. Josh McCown. I know it was against the Cowboys, but it’s still an NFL team and he shredded them apart. Alshon Jeffery is fucking awesome. What a touchdown catch he had. The Bears played flawless for the entire game on offense. They ran the ball well with Matt Forte (I love this guy). Oh, hey, even Michael Bush (by Cracky) actually gained some yards. In fact, I think he had more yards on Monday night than he had all year. The Bears had nearly 500 yards of total offense. You ever seen that by them in your lifetime? I didn’t think so. (Cue Yeti) This is why Trestman was brought in. It doesn’t make up for the horrible decisions in the last few games, but as we all know, if the previous regime is still in tact, the Bears only have three or four wins at the most.

With Josh McCown, I get it. He’s been playing like Peyton Manning latley. But please, let’s all keep the idea that Cutler is still, better than McCown. Because he is. I made this point when Cutler was hurt (again) against the Lions: A healthy Jay Cutler is better than Josh McCown. He must be 100% healthy to get back out there. The Bears are doing fine with McCown. However, when it comes down to it, if there is a fourth quarter and the Bears need a game-winning drive, I am going with Cutler a hundred times out of a hundred.

Defense: You would think that the Cowboys would just play like a small, high school style offense and run the ball all night. Wrong. The first drive or two, the Cowboys would run it and run it well. Even at halftime with the Bears up 24-14, they could have just stuck with the game plan. Instead, Tony Romo is throwing passes on second and third down which are resulting in punts. The defense of the Bears couldn’t stop a nose bleed. His receivers were either dropping passes or they were overthrown to. By the time Orton came in, they started running again and it worked. DeMarco Murray had only 18 carries for 146 yards. For you stat geeks out there, that’s just over eight yards a carry.

Special Teams: Hey, Robbie Gould nailed all three field goals. Wow, it’s so hard kicking chip-shot, 24-yard field goals. He’s really good. In fact, he’s the most accurate kicker in NFL history! When you kick all of those chip-shots over the years, you know, because your teams sucked so bad in the red zone, they couldn’t get touchdowns, your overall percentage rises tremendously? Yeah. That’s Robbie Gould. Want him to kick a 47-yard field goal in a dome? NO. CHANCE. IN. HELL.


The Bears will take on Jason Campbell, Caleb Hanie and the rest of the Cleveland Browns this coming Sunday.

    A thing or two to add my post:

    1. First, did ESPN show any shirtless idiots at the game? They showed at least two on the big screen.

    2. With the offense, the key to success is driving down the field and chewing up seven or eight minutes for a touchdown. That’s the only way the Bears can win. Keep the offense on the field and limit the defense’s time. We saw that on Monday and you never know, they may actually force a punt or two.

    I didn’t see any of the meatballs Fro. They did show some people tailgating in the parking lot, BBQing and tossing a football around. Those people were bundled up pretty well.

    Did you get a bit nervous on that opening drive by Dallas to start the game. I did. I was seriously thinking that this wasn’t going to end well for hte Bears. The run defense needs serious attention, whether it comes from the draft or free agency. This shit cannot continue.

    And I’m curious about something regarding Ditkas jersey retirement. Just when was this ceromony scheduled. Did they just decide to do it a few weeks ago, or did they decide before the season started. If it was before the season started, the idiot who made that decision should be fucking shot. I mean c’mon, they couldn’t have done it in September or even October? No, they do it in the middle of December, at night, on a night with the temps hovering around 5 above, and a wind chill of -10. Fucking, goddamned moron.

  3. chucky Says:

    And now I just heard the Bears/Eagles game on December 22 has been moved to primetime on NBC. WHY?!!!?!!!!!?!!



  4. Cubs Suck Says:

    Because LeSean McCoy could put up 300 yrds rushing on that shitty defense and everyone wants to see it lol

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    Absolutely, I was nervous after the first drive of the game. The Cowboys drove down the field at will. You almost thought that they were going to stick with that game plan. Instead, Romo is out firing the ball. If the offense scores on every drive they have, no team can beat them!

    The Ditka ceremony was planned before tickets went on sale in the summer. He played for both the Cowboys and Bears so they wanted it during that game.

    Why so ANGRY at the schedule change? Is it because you prefer the noon starts so you can get to bed? I have to say, I prefer all noon games as well. At the same time, I am a very busy person and I don’t have to worry about my job on a Sunday night rather than a Sunday morning. I can get other stuff done around my house or work in the daytime instead of staying on my couch for three and a half hours watching the Bears. It’s a nice change of pace.

  6. Fro Dog Says:

    Well, I guess like Caleb Hanie will not be on the sidelines for the Browns on Sunday as he was released today.

  7. chucky Says:

    Fro….maybe he’ll land in Houston with his old coach? Wouldn’t surprise me at all.

  8. genrebuster Says:

    My frendts….couldn’t believe I was watching DA BEARS. Big Fun (for a change). Save the doooooooooooooooooooooooom for now.

  9. Fro Dog Says:

    Genre, isn’t it great seeing the Bears having receivers (three of them to be exact!) that actually can jump up and catch a ball? It sure beats the times of Roy Williams and Kellen Davis!

  10. chucky Says:

    Hey Fro, you forgot something. Kellen Davis can do anything that any tight end in the National Football League can do.

    Flashbacks aren’t just caused by LSD!

  11. Cubs Suck Says:

    In a previous post I referred to Mrs. Jay Cutler as a skank and had to be reminded of my ignorance… My apologies go out to skanks everywhere for putting her in the same breath as you.
