Bears vs. Broncos tonight (Preseason FIRE AND PASSION edition)


If anybody is watching the game, feel free to add thoughts in this thread. I will be doing my best to watch from start to finish to see what some of the new guys can do. As always, the first preseason game only has the starters playing a series or two, but it will just be nice to see some football.

    Well, I thought these offensive lineman that the Bears drafted and signed this year were supposed to protect Cutler. He’s been sacked twice on the first two drives.

    Welcome to the NFL Preseason, where the NFL takes a shit in a Dixie Bowl and tells you it’s chocolate gelato served in fine china. Most of the starters are gone by halftime, but the NFL charges full regular season price because ITS FOOTBALL.

    And yes it’s a preseason game…against the reigning Super Bowl champs…but allowing SEVEN SACKS by the end of the third quarter?

    Fro: 7 sacks for a loss of 64 yards! Yikes! What happened to the Bear offensive line? My condolences. But, it is still only exhibition.

    But, DVX, the hot dogs are cheaper.

    I had completely lost interest by halftime. It was that bad and I barely watched the second half.

    With Hroniss Grasu (their projected starting center) out for the season with a torn ACL, I was still trying to be optimistic. They signed a ton of linemen through free agency. It was like they had another entire offensive line waiting on the bench. The problem is, none of those guys don’t have center as their natural position. Now, it seems like a tire fire. Cody Whitehair (By Cracky) started at center. Cutler gets sacked two or three times on just ten plays or whatever it was. DVX said it perfectly: No wonder he’s an asshole.

    Yes, I know. It’s only exhibition. There have been years where the Bears go undefeated and they win as many regular season games as they did in the preseason. But damn, at least protect the only quarterback you have.

    Brian Hoyer sucks ass. I don’t understand why the Bears brought him in. And Mark Sanchez? This guy goes 10-13 for 99 yards against the first string defense. That’s PATHETIC.

    DVX. Homerun.

    Something that I’m getting tired of hearing is how these preseason game “don’t mean anything”. If that was true, and it isn’t, then why the fuck play them? Why risk your 1st team guys on a meaningless game? Cutler could have had his season end last night. Jeffrey too. This is bullshit. Apparently, these games do mean something. And if last nights game is any indicator, we’re in for a looooooooooong season.

    This team is a trainwreck. Just watch.

  8. genrebuster Says:

    Here’s an idea…extend the real season 2 games…ELIMINATE pre-season GAMES entirely. Make your roster decisions during training camp.

    Then if somebody is injured and misses an entire season (lr worse), at least it happened in a real game.

    Also, Roger Goodell sucks. Thanks in part to his bs and the collective greed, I find myself caring less and less about the NFL…

    You would think with all of the times the Bears have had to punt over the last couple of years, that they would learn to stop letting the other teams block punts. It happened again last night.

    Poor Pat O’Donnell. He’s going to be the most recognized face on the Bears again this year by always being out there to punt.

  10. genrebuster Says:

    I only saw a few minutes near the end…but I just read this assessment:

  11. Fro Dog Says:

    Yes, they are too busy fighting each other. The Bears had their “Family Fest” at Soldier Field the previous weekend where the team practices in front of the fans. A fight broke out with new offensive lineman Ted Larsen instigating the fight. And not only that, he instigated at least two more before that in training camp.

    I understand it’s training camp and players on other teams fight, but it seems as if the Bears have more fights than those others (at least ones that I am aware of). Maybe if they gave a shit on the field like they do in camp, they may win a few more games.

    Steve Rosenbloom will be lapsing into profanity by mid-season this year.
