Cut Mario Edwards Jr. NOW: Bears 20 Raiders 9


This is going to be short as I have things to do. I’ll chime in with comments later on tonight or tomorrow when I calm down.

It didn’t have to be this difficult. All the Bears had to do was score another touchdown at some point during the third quarter. But as it goes with them, a full 60 minutes never happens. And when it looks like they are about to pull away, a dipshit like Mario Edwards Jr. decides to make it interesting. Fuck this asshole. Thankfully, the offense did just enough getting two field goals late in the game to put it away.

Offense: Hey, Damien Williams and Khalil Herbert provided a nice one-two punch. The Bears actually ran the ball with consistency again. What a crazy concept. Run the ball and eat up the clock to keep the defense rested. Genius, I tell you! Fields made a couple of passes that nearly made me shit myself. But, he did just enough.

Defense: After that one drive seeing the Raiders march down only to get a field goal, I thought that was going to be the peak for them today. But they held down the fort. And here’s a shocker: they didn’t allow late points before halftime or the end of the game. Progress? Don’t bet on it.

Special Teams: Cairo Santos. What else can you say? He’s one of the few guys on this team that is actually doing their job. He hit two BIG field goals of 46 and 45 late in the game to seal it.

Next up are the Packers at home. Unfortunately, they tried giving the game away to the Bengals and they replied with “no, thanks.” This game next week is for first place in the division.

Wrap your head around that. Also, fuck Mario Edwards Jr.

    Before last Sunday, I had been thinking of this game as sure to be a Raiders blowout. You know, it’s one of those games where the Bears go and play a mediocre team and get blasted, as I remember keenly from their past seasons. But, when I heard that Fields was going to be the starter, I had been feeling a bit more optimistic and thought of this more as a winnable game.

    And sure enough! Go Bears!

    I don’t think there’s a need to be so negative about the game, Fro Dog. The grades that they get on CBS Sports are pretty accurate, and they got a a B- there today, which I agree with.

    Yeah, that play by Mario Edwards Jr. was pretty stupid, but if it’s not him him, it’s usually someone else (Javon Wims infamously). It’s common in the NFL. The Giants’ Kardarius Toney got ejected today for punching a Cowboy.

    The Packers are up next week and I’m all OOHHH NOOOOO! The way they beat the Bengals today, that’s essentially how the Bears typically lose to them. (2016 at Soldier Field, for instance) But I’m hopeful that with Justin Fields . . . well, we might just have a chance. But I’m prepared to be disappointed.

    We’ll just have to hope that Kenny Albert isn’t casting it, eh, Fro Dog? He’s actually how I found this blog. You’re referenced on his Wikipedia page, if you didn’t know that.

    I appreciate the good words. Welcome to the darkest corner of the internet. You are more than welcome to come by and join us. Just watch out for Chucky. He’s the most pissed off Bears’ fan here and someone I’ve called a great friend for over a decade.

    Ha! Thanks Fro, but Paul is giving me a great run for my money. Welcome to the darkness John. Great post. Please come back soon!

    It wasn’t a perfect game, but it’s pretty fucking amazing how another play caller makes this look like a different team entirely. It still doesn’t excuse Nagy and his shitty decision making. And Ryan Pace should be run out of town on a rail for the way he’s wrecked this goddamn team.

    Sox are done, Cardinals are done. Thank the fucking lord!!

  5. chucky Says:

    Nemo, the only problem I have with the Sox being done is that Dustfuck continues on. Just me, I’d rather the Sox went on. There is no downside the Cardinals being done.

  6. Nemo Says:

    Well, Chucky, I hear you, but man, if the Sox kept winning, we’d hear about that from Sox fans for a LONG time whereas, Dusty Baker fans aren’t exactly going to be taunting Cub fans who didn’t like him as a manager. It’s particularly satisfying to see the Sox go down so fast after all the World Series talk early in the year-a disappointing season for them.

  7. chucky Says:

    I hear you too, Nemo. So now we just have to hope that Boston can beat the shit out of Dustbin Baker and the Houston Assholes. I’m beginning to actually hate them more than the Cardinals. And I never thought anything like that could happen.
