Fun facts


The Super Bowl is now set with the Denver Broncos going up against the Carolina Panthers. And with these two teams in the final game of the season, I will point out some ways it’s tied to decisions that the Bears have made over the course of the last decade.

Lovie Smith fires Ron Rivera for his friend, Bob Babich. Babich goes on to suck for the Bears and since, they have been in a realm of irrelevancy. Rivera, on the other hand, goes to Carolina, builds a team over the course of several years and is now, in the Super Bowl.

Lovie and offensive dumbass, Mike Martz, decide that Greg Olsen is no longer needed on their team. The Bears trade Olsen to the Panthers. Olsen now has a chance to win a Super Bowl.

And last, but not least, what do these two teams have in common?

Both have fired John Fox, who currently coaches the Chicago Bears. And both of his replacements are in this game.

I only pray that history is on our side as fans of the Bears.

    Whatcha think about Triple H winning the title? What I expected. Triple H would come out 30, win title, eventually setting up Reigns vs HHH at WM32. WWE doing everything they can to try and get Reigns over.

    I would have preferred something totally unexpected (as we all do at times). There is nothing wrong with something that’s predictable as along as it’s done right, if that makes sense. It was a bit surprising seeing Reigns get eliminated right before the final two, but oh well.

    You’re right, though. They’re doing everything they can to get Reigns over and it’s worked a bit more this year, but not completely. I don’t hate the guy. I want him to do well. It’s just not working for whatever reason. Them trying to make it look like Austin vs. McMahon all over again isn’t helping. That happened organically. This seems to be a bit more force-fed.

    Keep in mind that a ton of the guys are injured and won’t be in action at Wrestlemania. Talent is wearing thin and this is showing WWE’s lack of development for characters.

  3. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Reigns has three major issues (not all his fault):

    A – Mic skills. Most stars are loaded with character and charisma. He doesn’t have these things. He does have a “Look” and “It” factor about him though. So I can see why they like him.

    B – Booking. The writers are trying to be more careful with him than they were around this time last year. Fans were turning against him after Daniel Bryan’s ill-timed dismissal from last year’s Royal Rumble. But this is something that has plagued the entire roster. Too much 50-50 booking, finishes featuring DQs and no-finishes, and political correctness, among other things.

    C – No credible heels. Is there anyone fans overwhelmingly hate? People hated McMahon when we vs Austin. People hated Triple H when he vs The Rock. Their current heels are either part-timers (Brock Lesnar), injured (Seth Rollins, another guy who was horribly booked during his first run), or people don’t care about (Sheamus).

    I think all these things are correctable with better writing.

    I don’t disagree with on any of that. Keep in mind that 15 years ago, there may have been six or seven writers in the company along with Vince overseeing it. Now, there are about 30 of them. When there are that many people with all of those ideas, it leads to inconsistency, as we have witnessed over the last decade.

    The fan in me wanted to see something new but sadly, none of it would have made sense, especially since the match was for the title.

    Something I forgot to mention in regards to the Broncos/Patriots game:

    I am sure Roger Goodell was smiling yesterday during that game. Not just for the reason of Tom Brady losing, but the fact that his stupid rule change of the extra point was the difference in that game. Stephen Gostowski missed the 33-yard extra point early in the first quarter and that ultimately was the difference. The Patriots could not convert the two-point conversion.
