Nearly giving it away: Bears 24 Seahawks 17


This game had mixed emotions. First, I am glad they won. Anything to see Pete Carroll lose is worth it. I was there in 2012 when Urlacher pulled his hamstring and little did I know at the time that it would be his final game. Seeing Carroll jump up and down the sidelines like the scumbag that he is made me really want to punch him right in the throat. Fuck him. On the bright side, Brian Urlacher was honored at halftime. Go figure that the last time he was in that building, it was his last game against the same team.

The Bears pulled this game out despite nearly pissing it away late. I don’t want to hear about “garbage time”. The defense was turning into the “I-Pass” in the second half with the Seahawks getting two touchdowns. If they recover that onside kick, I am certain I would be writing a recap on the Bears losing in overtime with shades of that December 2012 game in my head even more.

Matt Nagy – Fuck this guy. Some of this play-calling was horrible. This team should easily be 2-0. Instead, they were damn near 0-2 because of the bad calls. They are still trying to pass the ball in short-yardage situations with one of the best running backs in the league. To add insult, the defense became gassed (again) because of the countless three-and-outs.

Prince Amukamara – He gets called for an illegal contact on the first touchdown drive by the Seahawks. Then, he makes up for it by getting a Pick Six. Keep it going.

Kyle Fuller – This fucking guy. He plays nearly flawless all last year and of course he would. It was a contract year. Then, it’s back to the same shit. The first touchdown by the Seahawks could have all been prevented. How many times have I mentioned how defensive backs can never learn to TURN THE FUCK AROUND? Fuck. Just turn around and that ball is there for the taking. Instead, he looks the opposite way like he’s admiring the stars in thes sky. TURN. THE. FUCK. AROUND.

Mitchell Trubisky – Two interceptions. Damn near a third one. In the first half. I am sorry, but I am getting flashbacks of Cutler. Overthrowing wide open receivers and throwing passes he has no business throwing are both Cutler-esque. Poor guy. It’s not his fault Ryan Pace gave away two extra draft picks just to move up one spot to get him. I mean, it’s not like Patrick Mahomes is throwing for six touchdown passes a game or anything. Seriously.

Khalil Mack – Hey, he’s earning his money. Wilson was getting sacked all first half. Five tackles, a sack lunch and another forced fumble as well. He’s been outstanding so far. They showed him running out of breath right before the Amukamara Pick Six. Talk about busting ass. He’s doing it.

I’m fucking exhausted and off to bed. Next week, the Bears take on the 0-2 Cardinals on the road. Fire Matt Nagy.

    “Morning, Fro Dog. I think everybody is sleeping off their hangovers this morning (GO BEARS!!!), so here’s my stats-based $0.02:

    I’m seeing some butt-ugly parallels between DaBears and Fucking Illini football: TD + FG in the first quarter, another FG or two before halftime, and by the end of the third quarter, the offense can’t even find the 10-yard marker. MAYBE the defense forces a fumble return for a TD or a pick-six before they’re gassed. Gradually the other team’s offense kicks into high gear in the fourth quarter, and oh, look…it’s another loss for DaBears/Fuckin’ Illini.

    How Da Bears got a first-place schedule after a 3-13 campaign is beyond me, but they can’t keep doing this bullshit all season. 200 years passing and 2 picks. Hell, no. Nagy needs to unleash Trubs sooner or later. Da Bears need to start churning out some 80 year TD drives for all four quarters. They’re better than this…

    …aren’t they???

    In other news, good watching the Fire and Passion win on TV Sunday night. No playoffs (AGAIN), but good seeing them kick somebody’s ass. Good job by the Cubs last night as well.

    That Illini game pissed me off. I was driving into the city on Saturday while listening to the game. 19-7 and all was well. Then, they pull the same shit the Bears did against Green Bay by just falling apart in the last quarter. The announcers were saying how they could have been 3-0 for the first time since 2011 with a match-up with 3-0 Penn State. It was only appropriate that it was Lovie Smith being the coach and that game being blown in Soldier Field. You can’t make it up.

    As mentioned in the recap, the defense seemed gassed in the last quarter. That’s what happens when the offense gets constant three-and-outs. Run the damn ball and keep the defense rested.

    Meanwhile…Josh Hamels picks exactly the wrong night to shit the bed. Also: ONE GODDAMNED HIT???

    Fuckin’ Illini and the Goddamned Cubs…again!

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    Go figure. The Illini piss away last week’s game and it’s only fitting that it was in Soldier Field WITH Lovie Smith as the coach. Then last night, they shock everyone by coming back to take the lead in the third 24-21. I stopped watching after it was 35-24. Lovie had a chance to make a statement last week along with last night and it didn’t happen.

    “Coupled with the Brewers’ 3-0 loss at Pittsburgh, the Cubs lowered their magic number for clinching their third straight division title to six.”

    Never thought I’d see the day when we’d be talking about the cubs winning three straight division titles, never mind winning the World Series. Just wish they wouldn’t make it a bigger task than it needs to be though. Dropping 4 of 6 to the Brewers in September? NOT!!!

    Oh, yeah…funny how Lovie “made his bones” as a defensive specialist, and then the F’n Illini cough up 35 points in the fourth quarter…at home.

    They did score 24 points though, so…progress?

    Hey, Fro, at least the Bears actually play something called Defense! Something Mike McCarthy and the Packers haven’t played in over six years! Fire Mike McCarthy…please!

    As far as the Cubs, I’m not buying them as a contender. They will probably make the playoffs and be one and done. The Dodgers are killing people right now, while the Cubs are barely hanging on. These next seven games (4 against Pittsburgh and 3 against St.Louis) will give us a better sampling of what they will be like in the playoffs. I see the Dodgers winning the Pennant in the National, and the Astros winning in the American. A repeat of the 2017 World Series. Yeecchh! Fire Joe Maddon! Hire Joe Girardi!
