Pulling one out of their asses: Bears 17 Packers 13


Anybody see that one coming? I know. Me either.

I am too worked up after giving myself a headache by screaming at the TV the last three hours. I’ll post some thoughts in the thread when I calm down.

In the meantime, add your opinions.

    My opinion: I’m happy they won. I think the coaching staff is doing a very good job given the circumstances, and I think there is enough evidence at this point to support the premise that Jay Cutler’s ineffectiveness up to this point was not entirely his fault.

    Agree with genrebuster. Six years of a revolving door of OCs, OLs, and wideouts, all whom he has had to resist the temptation to publicly throttle.

    When you have incompetence at every corner of the compass, is it a wonder why QBs can be such dicks?

  3. dvxprime Says:

    I know the Bears were supposed to be an absolute non-contending tire fire this season, but think about it: the losses to Detroit, Minnesota and Denver were all winnable games. If not for so much bonehead bullshit, the Bears are only eight points away from being 7-3 and in the hunt for a division title and a playoff spot. I “predicted” that the Bears would be 2-8 (2-10) after November, but now they’re able to grind out some wins. They’re not doing bad now, but damn! What might have been!

  4. genrebuster Says:

    dvx, your prediction (2-10) was definitely reasonable, given the circumstances. The Bears have exceeded my expectations. When was the last time they won at Lambeau?

    Trestman was a big setback, even after Lovie…I’m hoping Cutler can continue to develop because I’m not sure there is a better option in the short term (?). The defense is performing better, too.

    I think the Bears have been underdogs in every game this season…so the “experts” have been wrong 5x.

    In other news, rumor has it that Trestman had a seat at Dusty the toothpick chomping idiot’s Thanksgiving table. Lovie Baker was there, too. No horses were invited (or served).

    They won at Lambeau two years ago on a Monday Night. That was “The Shea McClellin Game” where he sacked Rodgers and broke his collarbone. Rodgers got the last laugh, as we all know, in the last game of the season.

    I can see why you probably forgot the last time they won. It’s because the Bears have been a laughingstock for about the last 25 years and their history against the Packers has been atrocious.

    Hi, Fro

    I don’t work there anymore. I opened up my own place on the other side of town. But I had to delete the picture. Are you up here for the State Football Championships?

    Alright guys, here is my weekly playoff picture update for the Bears. Every team that was in front of the Bears in the race for the last Wild Card spot lost except, for those fucking Seahawks. The Seahawks own the tiebreaker, so the Bears are still technically, two games out with five to go. And the worst part is that they have teams in front of them with identical 5-6 records.

    I think I mentioned this on here or even at Fire Ron Turner, but those two blown games against the Lions and Vikings really hurt them. They would be fighting for the division instead. This season is looking a bit like the 2008 season where they should have been 6-0 and instead, were 3-3 with all three losses being late collapses.

    I am still not sold on Fox and Gase coaching this team. There have been some awful calls in many of these games. Only one was really a convincing win and that was against the Rams two weeks ago. The Bears still, have to win out just to have a legitimate chance of securing a playoff spot. As we all have known lately, 10-6 doesn’t guarantee a playoff spot to begin with.

  9. dvxprime Says:

    Three of the Bears’ six losses (two to fucking division rivals) by a combined eight points. If the Bears didn’t have their heads up their asses, they’d be leading this division.

    Rest of the way?

    vs 49ers: They’re an even bigger tire fire than the Bears are. W

    vs Redskins: Leading the NFC East, but they suck on the road. W

    at Vikings: They’re for real, AP is getting his grove back. Cue “Twilight of the Thunder God” by Amon Amarth. L

    at Bucs: The Bears seem to field a practice squad secondary against junior QBs over the last few years (see Broncos game last week)…why? L

    vs.Lions: They’ll be counting down the minutes to the end of the season at this point. W

    Three home wins to maybe win back some of the fan base, plus two road losses to teams who are fighting for division titles (albeit one n a shitty division, the AFC South). 8-8 and laying the groundwork for next year.

    I saw a bit of the game with the Vikings and Falcons. Peterson has been running with a vengeance all season. It appears that someone gave advice to Adrian Peterson on how to be a better football player. Apparently, this person told him to pretend that one of his 21 children is in the stands. Said child, who is still too young to know right from wrong, decided to run away and ended up in the end zone. Peterson then proceeds to imagine this child in the end zone and will punish them for them behaving rudely. I don’t know if there are tree switches available in this imaginary world, but I would put money on it.

    But hey, whatever makes him succeed, right?

    .Regarding Peterson….I think you’re onto something, Fro.
