If there is football this Fall, how many games will the Bears lose? (A look at the schedule)

by

The season in order: Lions, Giants, Falcons, Colts, Buccaneers, Panthers, Rams, Saints, Titans, Vikings, Packers, Lions, Texans, Vikings, Jaguars and Packers.

If this was a team that had an actual head coach, you would think the Bears could actually get off to a great start of 3-1 or so. However, we’ve seen the Bears be 3-1 before (last year and 2014) and we all know that means nothing.

For now, here are my predictions as the Bears will go 5-11:

Wins: Lions, Buccaneers (the proverbial one game a year where no single soul expects the Bears to win), Panthers, Lions and Jaguars.

Losses: Giants, Falcons, Colts, Rams, Saints, Titans, Vikings, Packers, Texans (Watson shoves it up the Bears’ asses), Vikings and Packers.

Your predictions in the thread.

    Oh…this is rich. A bunch of entitled assholes who make millions of dollars each year playing a game are whining about the unfairness of decreasing their obscene salaries because their employers aren’t making nearly as much money. This is tone deafness on a grand scale.

    MLBPA won’t agree to league’s revenue plan, labels it a ‘salary cap’

    “A system that restricts player pay based on revenues is a salary cap, period,” MLBPA executive director Tony Clark told Rosenthal and Drellich. “This is not the first salary cap proposal our union has received. It probably won’t be the last.

    In my perfect baseball world, these guys would be kicked to the curb and the guys who are being paid the minimum (still a huge amount of money) would take over the league, and the holes would be filled by minor leaguers who would kill to get to the Bigs for even an abbreviated season and a smaller salary. – Ace of Spades

    I think Ace is on to something. I am getting way beyond fed up with these rich entitled players constantly complaining they aren’t treated fairly. Shut it all down!!

    I can already imagine in my mind where it all falls apart: Week 8 at home versus the Saints.

    Foles is injured two (three?) weeks ago because a beleaguered O-line missed one block too many. One wrong hit, one torn ACL…bye, bye Nicky.

    First quarter-plus. Bears’ D, playing the game of their lives, forces four turnovers and gives Mitch the ball in the red zone…four times.

    Filed goal.

    INT in the end zone.

    Blocked FG…returned for a TD.

    INT in the end zone.

    Brees finally gets his rhythm. The Bears’ defense is frustrated by the absence of the offense and tired as hell. Brees launches two bombs on the mismatched Chicago secondary.

    Trubisky throws a pick-six during the Two Minute drill.

    Saints 28, Bears 3 at the half.

    Trubisky is benched.

    Whomever the #3 QB is at this point does no better.

    Third quarter. The Bears trade two three and outs for two more ICBM strikes by Brees. The fans unleash the boo-birds as they head for the exits. The TV camera shows a shot of “Ma Fratelli” McCaskey, looking all dazed and confused at 95 years young.

    Ryan Pace? Nowhere to be seen (what else is new?).

    Final score: Saints 45, Bears 10. Da Bears are oh and eight at Halloween…three games back of the Lions.

    Oh…and after that debacle, the bears are 2:1 odds to finish 0-16.

    DVX,

    I am going to go back to this post after that game (if it’s played, anyway) and see how close you are. I’m praying it’s the exact opposite and the Bears kick ass. But, I’m not betting on it.

  5. dvxprime Says:

    Fro Dog,

    It’s just a worse case scenario. That being said, right now we have no guarantees on a QB who can find the end zone (or even stay on the field for more than three plays) and a well-above-average defense that may be on the field for longer than they’re physically able…I say ‘well-above[average” because of their uncanny ability to take quarters off (see the Green Bay games last year).

    In other new, Michael McCaskey has left the building.

    Michael McCaskey was the one who fired DITKA. But he’s also the one that called a press conference in 2000 to announce that Dave McGinnis was the new coach after Wannstedt was canned. The only problem was McGinnis didn’t agree to that and it caused a ruckus. Dick Jauron was hired instead later on.

    The joys of the Chicago Bears. And 20 years later, I’d rather have Jauron than the bald douche that’s there right now.

    I posted the video here years ago, but I’ll do it again now. You can see Ted Phillips in the background. Why is he still there again?

    Good ole’ Ted…

    In other news, guess who just scammed their way into this year’s NHL playoffs:

    “Certainly there were things Krause could have done differently. His feud with Jackson was foolish, as was his fawning over Iowa State coach Tim Floyd while Jackson was still on the bench. He did everything he could to sabotage the ’97-98 season, airing out his issues with Jackson and showing little interest in Jordan’s feelings on them. He let Jordan get away while still at the peak of his power, passing a chance to win another championship that Jordan is convinced they could have won.”

    …and this is exactly why Jerry Krause deserves as much blame as he gets for turning the Chicago Bulls from six-time NBA champs into perennial draft-lottery doormats. If he had any common sense, foresight, and or “vision,” he could have sat down with Reinsdorf the Elder, MJ and Phil before the ’97-98 season and laid all his cards on the table for everybody. He could have worked closer with Phil and MJ to draft and sign free agents that could have made the Bulls at least playoff contenders (a la San Antonio).

    But, no, he fucked up and thought he was bigger than MJ and Phil; he figured “I found y’all and I can get of rid of y’all.” So MJ gets another few more seasons with the Washington Wizards, Phil gets four more titles with the Lakers…and the Bulls are shit and Krause gets fired a few years later, forced to watch MJ and Phil (ESPECIALLY PHIL) move on without him.

    Also, outside of drafting the eventual champions, his draft picks were for shit. he got fired because he lost that “magic touch” he had back in the day. Again: maybe if he works something out with Phil he can work together to find Bulls worthy enough to step into MJ/Scottie/Worm’s collective Nikes when they eventually move on.

    Fuck Jerry Krause for being such a hard-assed, no vision having total bastard. And fuck SI for having the balls to try and stick up for his dumb ass.

    DVX,

    I’m getting very ANGRY with these posts about the Bears. It just fuels my disdain for the entire organization. With the exception of the 2006 season, I’ve had zero faith in this team. And with what has happened in all of these years, I can say I have good reason to believe that.

    And now, they are expecting Nick Foles to save the team? Fuck this. Andy Dalton was available and they didn’t bother to wait for his release? They gave up a draft pick for Foles.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
