Preseason Meatball Thoughts: Titans 19 Bears 15

August 30, 2019

Eddy Pineiro missed big time on an extra point; but he did redeem himself with some field goals after. Yay for him.

The sixth stringers on defense blew the game on the final drive. Go figure. Matt Nagy teams have a history of finding a way to fuck it up.

Tyler Bray looked good. Should he replace Chase Daniel as the backup? Or is this Caleb Hanie 2.0?

Bears vs. Packers next week at Soldier Field. Yours truly will be there. Will the Bears get a big lead and blow it like last year’s season opener? Or will the football spirits allow the Bears to do something they rarely do and that’s actually hold onto a victory?

If it’s the former, at least I don’t have to drive three and a half hours back home. It will be an hour instead.

Discuss!

Preseason Meatball Thoughts: Cut/Trade Chase Daniel? Andrew Luck retires. Bears 27 Colts 17

August 25, 2019

I admit, I was paying half-attention to this game being at work and later, at home cooking dinner and doing laundry. I did, however, catch the first part of the game where Chase Daniel was out throwing incomplete passes and getting sacked. Later on, the defense kicked ass by scoring more touchdowns than the offense did. Then, Tyler Bray came in and lead the Bears to a touchdown.

I try not to make too much out of the preseason. Of course Daniel sucked in this game. All I can think about is how awesome Caleb Hanie was in the preseason back in 2009 and 2010. We all know that went when he started games in 2011 after Cutler broke his thumb. That was a really shitty time.

Want something great? Eddy Pineiro nailed a 56-yard field goal!

Want something stupid? Matt Nagy is a dumbass and didn’t let Pineiro attempt another field goal later on from 58 yards. So, what is supposed to be a time for this guy to get all the kicks in as possible, Nagy decides to be a dumbass and let the offense try to convert a 4th and a mile.

Okay, now on to the serious stuff. It was reported during the game that Andrew Luck was retiring. I saw his first career game in 2012 at Soldier Field. This is such a sad story. The guy has been snake bit with countless injuries in the last four or five years. He couldn’t catch a break and it broke him mentally. Shame on the fans in Indianapolis for booing him off the field after this game. The fans calling him “weak” or whatever else don’t have the balls to put pads on and play one of the most dangerous games in sports. If someone doesn’t have the desire to do something they once cared about, they shouldn’t be doing it. Fans taking off their jerseys and booing him are ridiculous.

The Bears finish the preseason this Thursday against the Titans. Also, Matt Nagy is a fraud.

….go Cubs go?

My frendts: the Cubs are making my head hurt.

So, what are the issues with this 2019 Chicago Cubs team? And, why can’t they win on the road?

Quick reminder: Matt Nagy is a fraud.

August 15, 2019

As we approach the second preseason game for the Bears, I just wanted to remind all of you that Matt Nagy blew at least three of the five losses last year for the Bears.

I’m afraid to say that this year will be the same. It will be big leads that are blown because Nagy doesn’t understand that teams have running backs for a reason and that it isn’t necessary to pass the ball on 2nd and inches. In fact, it’s stupid if it happens.

This past January, we were all kicked in the nuts from Cody Parkey. Trubisky did everything he could to give the Bears a chance to win that game on the final drive. Sure, the defense should have made the stop. But at the end of the day, they wouldn’t even have been in that game if it wasn’t for the defense playing as well as it did despite Matt Nagy’s stupidity.

The chance to win a Super Bowl has never been greater than it is right now. It’s unfortunate that an impostor of a head coach is in charge.

Oh, let’s not forget about Ryan Pace. This guy still can’t figure out how to find a kicker. For crying out loud, this guy trades draft picks just to move up two spots or whatever. He outbids himself to draft players.

I’ll have some final thoughts on the Bears before the season mercifully begins in three weeks. I’ll be at the game against the Packers. I’m already anxious with the feeling that the Bears will have a 20-point lead again only to blow it in typical fashion. Then, Matt Nagy will tell everyone in the press conference that “this was a tough loss” and “we’ll grow from this and correct our mistakes.”

Fuck.

11 years.

I know I haven’t posted much at all the last few months. I’ve had the excuses of being bored and just being pissed off at Chicago sports. All of that is true. This past summer, I’ve also been very busy and dealing with a lot from work.

But as I signed in this morning, I was given the notification that it was the anniversary of this website. It started on the first of August 11 years ago. Wow.

Again, a lot of this has been repeated. But damn. This website, albeit with a very small crowd these days, is still around. I can remember having 20 or more on an active discussion when it was started. We’ve seen people come and go. From Irish Yeti’s stats all the way down to Jimmy D.’s love for red heads, it’s been here. We can’t forget about Chucky’s rants about wanting to saw someone’s arms off either.

If I tried naming a bunch of you to thank, I am sure I will forget some. But I have I thank Genrebuster for posting when he can. He’s a good man.

I know the Bears started training camp last week. I’ve been wanting to post something about that and maybe I’ll get to it eventually. But for now, feel free to post anything you would like in this thread. It can be about things from the past that was discussed on here or anything now.

Even if you are someone who just comes by to laugh at what any of us say, thanks for reading.  For the ones who still post on here, I thank all of you for the support. You guys are all great people that I can call friends. I still wish we all can get together sometime soon. For crying out loud, we’ve been trying to do this for the last decade. Let’s try to get on this. God bless you all.
