Good riddance, 2017.

December 29, 2017

2017 really sucked in terms of sports for me. The Bulls are re-building (although it doesn’t seem like it the last three weeks). The Blackhawks have not been the Blackhawks (more on this when I have more time). And then there’s the Bears. For the fourth straight season, it’s ten or more losses. The theme seems to be: One step forward, three steps back. Not good.

I will assume there will be a posting on New Year’s Day or the following day with news on the Bears. I am confident that John Fox will get fired Monday morning. But I wouldn’t put it past the Bears to let him keep his job. They’re that dumb.

As always, your thoughts in the thread.

Battle Of The Bad: Bears 20 Browns 3

The story isn’t what happened on the field. It’s what is going on in management. And we all have every reason to believe the report that no other than Ted Phillips, is on the search for the next head coach. So, they hire Ryan Pace to be the general manager. That’s the person who hires the coach and drafts the players. Instead, a life-long accountant is making decisions for a football team. Makes sense I suppose. The link is below. Your thoughts in the thread.

I want to wish everyone a great Christmas weekend. You folks are the best.

And one more week until John Fox is fired!

Virginia shows up: Lions 20 Bears 10

I was pretty disinterested with this game from start to finish. Trubisky was very “Bears” with his three interceptions (all in the second half). This just sucked.

I am not fooled: Bears 33 Bengals 7

You shouldn’t either. This coaching staff should all be fired now.

Great game by both the offense and defense. They won in spite of the coaching.

When the Giants and Browns are making changes in management, the Bears are accepting mediocrity.

We shouldn’t be surprised at this. But, it just furthers the argument that ownership and management of the Bears have no idea what to do. I do not doubt that George McCaskey wants to win. He even is willing to shell out the cash. The problem is that Ryan Pace has no idea what he’s doing. How stupid do you have to be to hire a coach that has been fired two different times before? How stupid do you have to be to trade away two extra draft picks just to move up ONE spot?

And don’t get me wrong, he’s drafted some pretty good players too. However, the entire body of work isn’t very good.

Four games are left in the season. I wasn’t surprised, but was still pissed off that John Fox was doing his usual press conferences this week. He should have been fired and shouldn’t ever be seen near Halas Hall again. This franchise has made themselves into the laughingstock of the NFL. Even the 49ers, Giants and Browns have more of a chance to contend before the Bears do.


Go figure: 49ers 15 Bears 14

Steve Rosenbloom called it right here.

John Fox must be fired by tomorrow. It is a must.

And Nemo, as DVX said, your lady friend was damn near spot-on.

Have at it, Bears’ fans. Your thoughts in the thread.
