Bears win NFC North Cellar Dweller Championship: Lions 24 Bears 20

What a game. Dick face throws three interceptions. The defense can’t stop anybody. And the difference between last year’s team and this year’s? One more win. That’s all that matters, right? A win is a win and a loss is a loss in the NFL. The Bears were one game better than last year.

This post will be dedicated to one of the few Chicago Bear players that has actually been likable over the course of the last decade: Matt Forte.

Drafted in 2008, he was an instant fan favorite. Frequent dumbass, Cedric Benson kept getting arrested. The Bears mercifully released him in Spring of that year, which lead to Forte getting drafted and becoming the starter.

This guy never bitched. And he had many opportunities to do so because of the franchise he was playing for. No matter what, he worked hard and was the best player on this team every time he put the uniform on. There wasn’t a bad thing to say about him.

Watching him play for the Bears has been one of the few good things to see over these years. With Jeremy Langford and Ka’Deem Carey doing very well in his absence earlier in the year, it appears that the Forte will be out the door, barring a miracle. I will understand why he may not be back. It’s a young man’s league and at Forte’s age, the salary cap is a factor and with two running backs who are much younger on the roster, it makes sense.

We should all thank Matt Forte for the memories if he is indeed, gone.

    All I can say is I’m glad this season is over. This time last year when they fired that goof ball dork Trestman and hired what I think we all thought was a competent head coach in John Fox, I was happy. Then he started talking, during the summer, and into training camp. Goddamn if Fox didn’t sound like every fucking moron coach the Bears have had since Mike Ditka. I wondered what the fuck was going on. I had thought this guy had some brains. Then it dawned on me. Chicago Bear head coaches aren’t allowed to speak for themselves. The coaches are actually similar to WWE announcers. They have Vince McMahon in their head phones, Bears head coaches have either the McCaskey’s, or Ted Phillips telling them what to say. They just sound so much like each other that it can’t be ignored. It also means that regardless of what anybody says, and that includes the illustrious Dan Bernstein, the McCaskey’s are still very much trying to control every word that anybody says. And as long as THAT OLD FUCKING BITCH still owns this team, the Bears are fucking doomed to suck. It doesn’t matter what talent they acquire, either through the draft or free agency. Football teams should not be dictated to by a 700 year old dinosaur.

    It’s just that simple.

    I posted some thoughts over at Fire Ron Turner and that was just a small sample size on my thoughts. I really don’t have the energy at this moment to break down everything. All I know is that the Bears are fucked as long as John Fox is coaching. Some may disagree and that’s fine. I just see all of the close games that they lost and felt that if they had called the plays that I wanted them to at certain times, that those could have easily been wins. It also didn’t help that Robbie Gould forgot to feed his family during some of those games, too. Had he done that, maybe they would have had two more wins at the very least.

    Hey Fro…..I’m afraid I need to disappear again, just for a few days, hopefully. I’m scheduled for more back surgery tomorrow morning. They have to pull the rod and six screw I have back there, and replace them with steel hardware. They also have to fuse the vertebrae directly above the old fusion. Last time they opened my back up I was in the hospital for four days.

    Keep a good thought for me guys, and I’ll be back ASAP. In the meantime, hold the fort for me, and pass the Demerol!

  4. Fro Dog Says:

    Get well, Chuckster. Don’t carry the chainsaw around either for these next few days.

    chucky. My thoughts are with you. If you can block all thoughts of the Bears from your mind, you will heel in half the time! Seriously, All the Best to you and yours, my frendt.

  6. genrebuster Says:

    I sincerely thank Matt Forte for the memories, his efforts and for NOT being a douche-bag (like so many others before him).

    This is why people like Genre are needed at this website. No matter how shitty things are with the Bears, he finds a way to make some laughter out of it unlike myself, who wants to throw the TV out the door after every game.

    Matt, Cutler, and Gould are the last three players left from the 2010 NFC Championship game debacle versus the Packers. He’s the only one able to shoulder the load since then.

    Cutler’s been through about three head coaches and more than a few OCs since then. Gould has gone on a slide since his “feed my family”comments.

    That’s really what’s been stopping the Bears these last five or six years: coaches and players being absolute meatheads at then worst possible times.

    Fro, so I kept the television…but I recently threw my cable tv subscription out the window, felt great! My experience is that Time Warner Cable is a horrible company to do business with….looking forward to Google fiber roughing them up.

  10. Fro Dog Says:

    I understand Time Warner sucks because I had a friend who lived in Milwaukee for a couple of years had it. We’re stuck with Comcast in Chicagoland and while shitty, I’d still take it over satellite. I don’t see myself ever ditching cable because I am too hooked on my DVR. I know there are all of those sites that have the shows and sports I can get in HD, but I just am stuck in my ways.

    As always, if you need some newer websites for news and sports for free, let me know and I’ll email them to you.

    Please send me that list…and Thank You, sir.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
