You can’t make this shit up.

Just like the Bears, the Bulls need to pull the plug on everybody and start over. Sadly, in the NBA, it takes longer to get back to the promised land. They might as well start now.

Recap of Bears/Seahawks

September 27, 2015

Punt – Punt – Punt – Punt – Punt – Punt – Punt – Punt – Punt – Punt

And now, time for my opinions.

  • Vladamir Ducasse kicks kittens in his free time.
  • Jimmy Clausen doesn’t have any friends.
  • Ted Phillips wipes his ass before he takes a shit. – Actually, this is a fact. My bad.
  • David Fales slept with John Fox’s wife and that’s why he won’t ever play.

The Raiders are up next at home. I smell 0-4.

ANGER

It’s time to pull the plug on this thing: Cardinals 48 Bears 23

September 21, 2015

I am late with this recap, but I have a lot to bitch about. The Bears were embarrassed, once again on Sunday. I didn’t even make it to my seat by the start of the game. As I walking to my seat, the Cardinals already took the kickoff back for a touchdown. This game, it was former head coaching candidate Bruce Arians, who stuck it to the Bears. I left the game early in the 4th quarter, but from what I heard on the radio, he was trying to run up the score late. The Cardinals also had blitz packages late with them up 25. I love it. Hey, when an organization insults a candidate for their head coaching job, then he should show them what they missed out on. It puzzled me why the Bears didn’t hire him. Then, reports came out that they made him do a mock press conference.

There were a lot of things that pissed me off. Let’s start off with the punching bag known as Vladamir Ducasse. This offensive lineman isn’t a football player. He proved that to me last week by getting three penalties. He had another three penalties yesterday (two false starts and one holding). Remember, this “smart” coaching staff cut Jordan Mills, who at least had SOME success in the NFL. Vladamir Ducasse hasn’t done a damn thing in his three or four years in the league. And what’s worse is that he can’t even block anybody either. He’s a fucking turnstile out there. We already witnessed Frank Omiyale as fans. We don’t need to see it anymore. Fuck this guy.

The cornerbacks: If Vic Fangio is such a “defensive genius”, then can he please explain why the cornerbacks can’t TURN THE FUCK AROUND to see where the ball is going on deep passes? This happened two or three times last week where pass interference was called because they were facing the receivers. I am not an expert, but I think pass interference won’t be called if Kyle Fuller actually turned around and went for the ball rather than flail his arms at the receiver.

Seriously, I am getting sick and tired of this shit. How can Fox and Fangio not work this out? Kyle Fuller and Alan Ball are fucking awful as it it, but at least get beat by facing the ball rather than the receiver. Pass interference will get called every time. All of these years, it was the secondary not being able to cover receivers. Now, they are actually covering them but facing the other way.

Penalties: The Bears set a franchise record for most penalty yards in a game (170). I don’t think many teams are going to win with that many penalties. And don’t forget, the reincarnation of Frank Omiyale is the starting right guard of the Bears. This offensive line (as well as the rest of this team) is in shambles.

Offense: Cutler is hurt again. This was after he was 8/8 and then, a pick six. And what’s with these interceptions that are being intended for Martellus Bennett? I know all of these Cutler interceptions were going on before Bennett was signed but this is weird. There is always confusion. Bennett could be running the wrong routes, too. This is great. In comes in Clausen. I think Jimmy Clausen clearly proved that he is not an NFL quarterback. He isn’t Todd Collins bad, but he’s pretty fucking terrible.

Call me a meatball, but the Bears owe it to us to start David Fales. They released undrafted rookie Shane Carden, so Fales is all they have left after Clausen. This season is lost. Maybe Fales sucks too, but at least we as fans, can witness the suck for ourselves.

It’s a lost season, folks. I am sick of this shit. I get that this season is what the outcome is of bad drafts and shitty free agent signings over the years are. But through two games, this is becoming unwatchable. And next week, it’s a battle of 0-2 teams when they play the Seahawks. I have seen this crap my entire life. And I feel like many of these games, the announcers and other major media outlets call the Chicago Bears a “a proud and historic franchise”. I, for one, am not proud of this franchise. I mean, the last time they won a Super Bowl was three months before I was born. And historic? If by historic, you mean incompetent, then I agree.

The Chicago Bears are an embarrassment and incompetent organization. I don’t see things getting any better until the fucking McCaskey’s sell this team or find someone who has a half-working brain run this team. Your thoughts in the thread.

‘Vigilante’ Cards

“I never read this book the Cardinals wrote way back in the day regarding how to play baseball,” Maddon said after the game. “You can take that book and read it yourself because I don’t give a crap about that book. I want everyone there to understand we don’t start stuff, but we stop stuff.”

Do the Bears win on Sunday? Regardless, I would think Bruce Arians will do an actual press conference after the game.

Meet the new Bears; same as the old ones – Virginia and Roger enjoy the game together

Well, it wasn’t a blowout. But let’s be honest, the defense of the Bears still sucks. They couldn’t stop a nosebleed today. The defense had only forced two punts. Everytime it went to 3rd down, you knew the Packers were going to convert. It doesn’t matter if the Bears have a “great” coordinator. If the players aren’t there, it doesn’t matter.

There is just so much shit to talk about. From penalties to horrible play-calling, it’s there. First, Kyle Fuller late in the game decided to not turn around and that ultimately, decided the game. Before that, the Bears decide to pass four straight times at the goal line. Matt Forte nearly had 150 yards rushing and as soon as they get to the goal line, they pass four straight? One was nearly intercepted and the Bears turned it over on down.

Speaking of being intercepted, Dickface met his quota of at least one interception per game against the Packers. And why did he even attempt that? There were three other receivers open. I’ll never know but I am sick of it. And even with all of that, the defense, once again, couldn’t stop the Packers. The offense was doing all of the right things by eating up the clock and keep Rodgers off the field, but when was on there, it was a nightmare.

I think the problem I have is I am more pissed off when the Bears lose a close game. I fucking hate that they do this shit all the time when they are expected to lose by 30 and instead, they actually put up a fight.

0-1 and the Cardinals are up next at home. Yours truly will be there to witness the PATHETIC in person.

Well, folks, the NFL season is here. Feel free to add your thoughts on the Bears. I am expecting a lot of ANGER after Sunday’s opener against Packers. A majority of the country will be watching this game as Fox’s #1 announcers in Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will be calling it. After that, we will be stuck with kiss of death to Chicago Sport’s announcers, Dick Stockton and Kenny Albert to call games for the Bears on Fox. Fuck those guys.

Maddon

Ernie, I just saw your comment on the Cubs game tonite referencing Pedro Strop’s performance. Fro hasn’t commented on the Cubs in a very long time, so I’m going to use your comment in this post and invite longtime contributors – as well as newer contributors or those who merely “observer” – to weigh in on what is currently happening with the Cubs.

Great to hear from you, ernie…don’t be a stranger!

erniesarmy Says:

Sorry, Fro, gotta vent: How in the world is Maddon continuing to bring in Strop when he blows, or nearly blows, every game he is in? Oh, well, I guess he would say to me, “Whatta want me to do?” He would be right you know, other than Rondon – who’s no Mariano Rivera either – he has no one to call on in a game like today’s who can shut the door.

I think even Chucky would agree that Lester deserved better. Pitched his butt off for seven innings, and then Pedro – Richard – Francisco give it all up. No playoff series wins this year, not until that bullpen is fixed.

The Bears need help on the offensive line and yet, they cut Jordan Mills.

September 8, 2015

It’s been a while since I went into a football season as pissed off as I am now. Over the last few years, I have been more optimistic that the Bears would be competitive. Instead, it’s been horse shit.

With the Bears desperately in need of offensive line, they decided to cut Jordan Mills in favor of keeping Vladamir Ducasse. Let me say that I don’t think it’s going to matter at the end of the day if Mills makes a difference. However, he played really well two years ago and injuries messed things up last year. This preseason, he was healthy and played well in the final game against the Browns. I know that doesn’t mean much, but after hearing about Ducasse’s past on the radio, I came to the conclusion that this was a stupid decision.

This is from Ducasse’s Wikipedia page:

Performing well in training camp, Ducasse earned the starting job at left guard during the 2013 NFL Season. However, due to penalties and struggles, Ducasse was benched in favor for rookie Brian Winters. Ducasse played in all 16 games with 4 starts for the 2013 season. He became a free agent for the first time in his career after the season ended.

That’s just fantastic. So, a third-year guy in Jordan Mills, who played very well next to Kyle Long in 2013, became injured last year and now, is healthy, ends up getting cut for the reincarnation of Frank Omiyale?

I have a bad feeling this is going to be the 2009 Bears all over again with the offensive line. Dickface is going to get pummeled into the ground many times because the line will be like turnstiles.

Is Jerry Angelo secretly making moves up there?
