According to the stats (cue Yeti), if the Bears don’t win this Sunday, the season is likely over.

by

As it has been discussed here many times over the years, we generally don’t give a shit about stats other than wins and losses. If you look at this past Sunday, the Bears did very well in terms of yards and time of possession. Did it translate into a victory? No. We always say “As long as the Bears win, that’s all that matters.” And that’s true to a point.

However, something was thrown my way yesterday that I could not ignore. Since 1990, teams that have started off 0-2, have managed a way to get to the playoffs 12% of the time. In football terms (or any other way), that is not a very good probability. Some may argue the point of “Well, the Packers, Patriots and Saints all lost too this past Sunday.” You are right. But let’s put it this way: The three quarterbacks on those teams all have Super Bowl rings. The three coaches on those teams, have rings. All three of those teams, have a track record of being in it every single year. The Bears, are in playoff hunts every year, but never make it unlike the teams I just mentioned.

That’s the difference. That’s why this game coming up against the 49ers is big. The Lions and Vikings won their openers. And looking at the Packers schedule, they may not lose another game until the middle of October. It’s time for the Bears to nut up and quit making stupid fucking decisions and that goes for both the coaches and the players. When it’s 3rd and less than a yard, Trestman shouldn’t be over his head by trying to run a rollout with Cutler only for them to throw it a defensive lineman for the 372nd time. When Brandon Marshall catches the ball, he should tuck the damn thing away rather than hold it out for the whole world to see. When the media rightfully criticizes them, they should stop blaming them for being “negative”.

The entire football world is going to be watching this game between the Bears and 49ers this Sunday. Will the Bears finally shut everyone up about their deficiencies or will they prove, once again, that they just aren’t good enough yet?

    I’ll go record right now……the season is over…….now, today. September 10th, 2014. It’s only week two, AND THE MOTHERFUCKING SEASON IS OVER! And it’s entirely on this goddamned coaching staff. Face it, and I don’t give a goddamn who disagrees with me, the Bears were not ready to play last Sunday. They had an entire off season to rest up, knew in April who they’d be playing in week 1, four preseason games, training camp, OTA’s, and they goddamned weren’t fucking ready! I don’t need stats to tell me that. I saw the fucking game, and they completely shit the motherfucking bed.

    Now the reason I say it’s on the coaching staff is because it’s their job to get their players ready for when the games do count for something. Clearly, they didn’t do this. It may be all a part of the pussification of the NFL these days. Seriously, give me a good reason why they played total scrubs against Cleveland. And don’t tell me to rest up players and not risk getting them injured. That’s bullshit. How well has that worked out? I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the last time the Bears actually worked up a fucking sweat during training camp, was that during the Ditka regime? I honestly don’t remember how tough Wannstedt’s camps were, Dick Jauron was a fucking push over and didn’t work people hard, and Lovie FUCKING Smith took that to a new level by trying to be everybody’s fucking friend. Now we have Marc FUCKING Trestman trying to “build the man”, with his “toolbox of concepts”. None of that shit fucking works, goddamnit. Now Garza and Slauson will miss time, the defense still blows chode, and the defensive schemes do too. It’s going to be a looooooooooong season.

    New prediction for the season. Record: 4-12, last in the division, and Doug Buffone has either a heart attack or a massive stroke on the post game show. It won’t be good, that much is certain. I said in my posts last Sunday that I may have had a knee-jerk reaction to the game. I take it back. They flat ass sucked, and it showed.

    FOR THE FUCKING LOVE OF GOD, IT WAS THE GODDAMNED BUFFALO FUCKING BILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW IN THE GODDAMNED HELL DO YOU LOSE TO THEM? AND NOT JUST LOSE, GET YOUR FUCKING ASS HANDED TO YOU LIKE THAT?

    The season is over….right now, at week two. We may as well just get ready for basketball and hockey.

    As long as Dickface Cutler is the QB, every Bears season is a bust. The fuckface does whatever he wants and doesnt give a single fuck. We got a glimpse of what a different QB could do last season in Trestmans system and saw positive results. Fuck You Cutler!

  3. chucky Says:

    It looks like the REAL fuckstick of the NFL, Roger “I never saw anything” Goodell may have signed his own death warrant with that interview last night with Norah O’Donnell. The AP reported that they sent a copy of the video of Ray Rice using his girlfriend as a punching bag……………..IN APRIL!!!!!!!! Pack your bags Roger. You’re fucking done, you lying sack of fucking dog shit!

    CBSS…..I understand your hatred of Cutler, but seriously, this team has far more serious problems aside from Cutler. The defense still sucks. Mel Tucker is a moron. That 3rd a 1 pass play that was picked off, from my understanding, was called by Trestman, or at the very least, Aaron Kromer. And even before all of that, training camp was a complete farce. The entire team wasn’t ready to play. That falls squarely on the shoulders of one Marc Trestman. Period. Again, I know you hate Cutler, but let’s put the blame for this loss where it belongs. The coaching staff. Cutler didn’t win that game, but he also didn’t single-handedly lose that game either.

  4. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    Your right chucky, it’s only been 1 week, give him time.

    Interesting stat…. In 2 career games against San Francisco Dickface has 1 passing touchdown, 6 interceptions,1 fumble and been sacked 3 times.

    0-2?

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    The National Organization For Women are calling for the resignation of that greedy scumbag, Roger Goodell. As long as that group keeps the pedal to the metal, it will put enough pressure on him to leave. I don’t think there is a way around this. Had he suspended Rice for say, six or seven games at the beginning, I don’t think this is as big of an issue. Now, he dug himself a hole that he may not get out of.

  6. chucky Says:

    Fro…..the fact that he lied through his fucking teeth to Norah O’Donnell in front of the entire country will be the final nail in that scumbags coffin. That AP report shattered every single word he said yesterday. Credibility is completely shot in his case.

    CBSS……don’t be too surprised if the Bears shit the bed in San Francisco. The Bears have been doing that since the Reagan administration. And they’ve averaged around 5 points a game in that span. Expect the Bears to get their asses handed to them Sunday night.

  7. Pie in the Sky Says:

    You know, I could understand Goodell trying to cover this up if this were a Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, or a legitimate star.

    But a fringe top-10 RB like Ray Rice? No forgiveness for Robert Mathis or Josh Gordon… Rice does something much worse and gets two games. Dude is an idiot.

    Let’s hope he’s out before October. I’ve got a feeling that PR-tober…I mean, Pinktober…will be out in full effect next month. Got to appease those female fans.

  8. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    I agree with Mr. Pink and LeSean McCoy.

  9. Nemo Says:

    Past performance does not predict future performance-unless we are talking about the Bears at the 49ers Since the Frig was put in the backfield in ’85 to retaliate for Bill Walsh’s dick move in the NFC Title game the year before, the 49ers have hosted the Bears 8 times. The Bears have lost all of them. Only one game was even close (and it was one of the worst Thursday night games in history). The scores:

    41-0
    26-0
    52-14
    44-15
    17-0
    49-7
    10-6
    32-7

    That’s 271-49 gentlemen. or about 34-6 average-since 1987!
    No reason to think this will change tonight. I say the Bears lose by more than 30-again.
