Up and down. Back and forth.


No matter how shitty the Bears have been this year, one thing is for certain: Marc Trestman and the boys don’t ever quit. There were many instances in this game where you thought the Bears were finished and things turned around quickly. For a while there, it seemed that myself along with the other Jay Cutler supporters were looking pretty stupid. The fourth quarter arrived and so did Jay Cutler. Don’t get me wrong, it took a lot of luck to win this but the fact of that matter is that it happened.

Offense: I am a Jay Cutler fan. I really am. However, if there ever was a Jay Cutler roller coaster, I don’t want to get on it. It looked like he was hurt again on a couple of hits he took. I have said this before and I will say it again: If Jay Cutler is not healthy, he should not be playing. He was overthrowing receivers and making some other bad throws. In the fourth quarter, he throws a prayer in double coverage only to have Alshon Jeffery catch it out of nowhere. I nearly jumped off my couch. That turned the game right there because earlier, Martellus Bennett fumbled the ball which lead to a recover and touchdown by the Browns. The drive that tied the game in fourth was led by two big penalties on the Browns. I’ll take that. Also, I love Alshon Jeffery.

Matt Forte probably had his best game of the year in this one. He had over 125 yards rushing which included some key first downs. We cannot talk about the receivers and running backs without giving credit to the offensive line. It’s amazing what these guys have done. There were a few key plays in which Jermon Bushrod (by Cracky) and Matt Slauson had some big blocks that led to Forte getting some big gains. The line has certainly been the best and most consistent part of this team all year.

Defense: The player of the game goes to Zack Bowman and I was one to give this guy a lot of shit all year. He isn’t suppose to be playing but he has to. He had two interceptions with the last one going for a touchdown. The defense gave up 17 points which is a blessing compared to the rest of the games this year. Jason Campbell is a terrible quarterback. He had a nice drive or two. I think there was a mirror on the sidelines and to my guess, Jason Campbell went over to this mirror after those drives, looked into it and said, “I’m Jason Campbell”. He then, promptly began to suck again like only Jason Campbell does. I could sit here and bitch about the last drive in which, a shitty quarterback drove his team 80 yards in 1:18 but that’s what the defense of the Bears does regardless.

Special Teams: Devin Hester had a nice return that setup a touchdown if my memory serves correct. Robbie Gould also had a field goal and would have had another one if it wasn’t for a terrible holding call by Corey Wooten.

Next up: The Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

    Dan Bernstein made a comment last Friday about just how crazy Monday will be with the people calling in the station about todays game. I submit that the craziness has already begun. Goddamn, do any of these dumb bastards even think through their thoughts before calling? Some of these arguments for dumping Cutler are fucking lame! Just come out and admit that you hate the fucking guy and want him off the team. At least our friend Cubs Suck is able to put up a good argument for his opinion. These assholes calling in don’t have the sense of god gave a sack of shit. Terry Boers may actually commit suicide on the air tomorrow, and Bernstein is almost guaranteed to blow an artery. Goddamn, these people are embarrassing me as a Bears fan. What a bunch of fucking retards. And one other thing, LEARN HOW TO FUCKING PRONOUNCE McCOWNS FUCKING NAME BEFORE YOU CALL A RADIO STATION AND MAKE A JACKASS OUT OF YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!

    I hear you on that. I heard it the last two weeks. There were idiots who couldn’t pronounce McCown’s name correctly. These are the same people who called up years ago wanting Lovie fired and that they should replace him with Ditka. There were also calls wanting Dan Hampton to be the defensive coordinator. Yeah, right.

    I get it. McCown has been the hot hand. Through three quarters, it was looking bleak. Cutler pulled through though. He’s better than McCown when healthy. The Bears have a luxury and not a controversy. Not many teams have two quarterbacks that can play well but the Bears do. We should be happy that they won this game. That’s all that matters right now.

    One of B&B’s pet peeves- people who can’t pronounce McCown; yeah, their show should be a hoot and a half with the meatballs and other assorted asshats calling in Monday. I can just imagine Doug and OB were beside themselves today.

  4. genrebuster Says:

    Wait a minute, my frendts!!!!!

    Who the hell is Josh McCown? I thought it was Cade McNown? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    I am sure some callers were actually saying “McNown” these past few weeks.

    Damn you Genrebuster. Stop bringing up past quarterbacks of the Bears. You are making my eyes bleed!

    Haha. Detroit.

    Looks like this division may come down to Week 17 Bears vs Packers, just like it was meant too before both teams fielded skeleton teams because of all these injuries.

  7. Fro Dog Says:

    Reports have Lance Briggs coming back. I am not sure if it’s going to be a big difference considering the defense sucked before he was hurt but oh well. He’s better than Khaseem Greene.

    I could be wrong on this (someone get Yeti right now!), the Bears could win the division with a win and losses by the Lions and Packers.

  8. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Bears 8-6
    Packers 7-6-1
    Lions 7-7

    So yeah, a Bears win with Packers/Lions loss would clinch the division…and the No. 3 seed…for the Bears.

    Packers and Lions losses*
