Apologies for not being here much as my life has been absolutely hectic. Obviously, we’re in a period where much isn’t going on with the Bears. Free agency will be in the middle of March with the Draft happening at the end of April.

Chucky mentioned a few weeks back that the Bears are raising ticket prices for the upcoming season. What else is new? The Bears can’t bother to put competent coaches in charge and haven’t been a serious contender since I was in college. Yet, they want to charge you more money?

Fire away.

Zac Taylor turned into Lovie Smith, Marc Trestman, John Fox and Matt Nagy during the final drive in the Super Bowl.

Feel free to add Dan Quinn and Sean Payton in that group as well. I have realized in the last several years that there are idiotic head coaches all over the place. They do the same thing to their teams that the coaches do to the Bears.

2nd and 1 on the final drive for the Bengals and Burrow throws it? Same for 4th and 1. It’s like, you have three chances to get one yard. Do it, spike the ball and give yourself three more downs. The game just needed to be tied. All of the coaches I have named in this post have shown their acts of stupidity when it mattered the most. Sheesh.

I was cheering for the Bengals just because they have never won a Super Bowl in their franchise history. In addition, I never really cared for the Rams. So there’s that.

What do you think?

How did I not know that Lovie Lee Smith was an assistant for the Texans last year and now, the head coach?

It appears that other teams are just as stupid as the Bears. What’s next? Matt Nagy coaches the Lions?

Don’t say I told you so.

I listened to some of the press conference today. And…

I was pretty discouraged. Poles and Eberflus talked with “FIRE AND PASSION” and not in the good way.

I’m someone who is annoyed by people using a script to make speeches. Having bullet points on paper is fine. But reading off a script in these situations don’t seem genuine. And what made it worst was seeing Ted Phillips sit there. How is this guy even allowed into the building?

Then again, maybe this is optimism. The previous regimes didn’t seem to talk like this. So maybe I’ll be proven wrong?

The press conference in it’s entirety is posted below. Check it out if you want.
