I won’t go too much into this game (it’s the preseason after all), but I was reminded in many ways last night of the past few years as a Bears fan. The Bears might have won, but I felt blood coming out of my eyes and ears. Here’s why.
Being as excited as I was for football to start, I just had to watch the pregame show. Dan Hampton is doing pregames for Fox 32 and he’s actually not as meatball-y as others. As the pregame goes on, I get more excited when then, they cut the camera to the Soldier Field sidelines for Lou Canellis. And who does Lou interview?
Ted fucking Phillips? You’re kidding me, right? Oh, and if you missed it, here’s one sentence that summed up the stupidity of him and I quote: “I see a sense of comradery around the organization and the team.” – Yeah. Sure. And if there is, it’s certainly not because of you, Ted. This guy probably didn’t even know what a football was before the Bears hired him 30 years ago.
Well, now to the game. Let’s see, the Bears committed about 14 penalties in the game. I think half were false starts or offsides. It’s good to see the Bears in mid-season form with that. Oh, the first team defense gave up a touchdown on the first drive. The Dolphins went 14 plays and took up half of the quarter doing so.
Jimmy Clausen looked good. So did backup running back Jacquizz Rodgers. That was nice to see. Clausen actually looked fairly calm. That’s encouraging. A few guys some of us never even heard of until last night played pretty well too. And go figure, I already forgot the names of these guys.
Dickface overthrew Eddie Royal when he was wide open. It probably would have been an easy touchdown. The very next play, Dickface missed Martellus Bennett on the sideline.
I fucking hate Roger Goodell. I wish someone would punch him in his fucking face. Those 33-yard extra points are PATHETIC. Every year, he tries to water down the league by instituting new rules that are supposedly making the game better but in reality, it’s the exact opposite. Go to hell, Roger Goodell. And take Ted Phillips with you.
Alright. That’s enough from me. For those who watched any part of it, feel free to weigh in.
