Sloppy | Bears 19 49ers 10

by

Raise your hand if you thought the Bears were going to win today. Maybe all but who are currently raising your hands are lying.

Let’s be honest: The Bears should have been down 21-0 at halftime. The 49ers were a victim of the weather and had some turnovers that prevented this game from being over early. BUT, the Bears found a way to make the 49ers pay for their bad decisions. I actually felt they were playing like the Bears were all these years by constantly shooting themselves in the foot. They had numerous chances to put the game away early and didn’t.

The first drive of the game, the Bears go three and out. It set the tone for the entire half. They couldn’t get anything going on offense. Then again, the second half arrives and they finally get going. Some defensive breakdowns by the 49ers along with their bad penalties got the team going.

Message to Eddie Jackson: So nice of you to show up after a two-year vacation.

Cairo Santos missed two extra points in the fourth quarter. I was surprised as anyone. At the same time, the field conditions were garbage from all the rain. So I guess he gets a pass for today. In addition, did anyone else know that it’s illegal to dry a spot in the field with a towel? I didn’t think Santos would have made that field goal anyway. But damn.

That’s it for today. I am pretty exhausted after a long weekend. The Packers are up next on Sunday Night Football in Lambeau Field.

    The field conditions were absolutely fucking horrendous. Any injuries that occurred in this game should be blamed on the city of Chicago. Soldier Field should be fucking bulldozed tomorrow. The stadium is a goddamned shithole dump. I actually don’t blame the Bears for looking for a stadium. They laid new sod a few days ago, and this is the end result? Fuck that shit, man. Two or three inches of rain shouldn’t turn that field into a goddamned swamp. That being said, the playing conditions were the same for both sides. San Francisco is badly overrated. Trey Lance sucks. At this point, I don’t see this team winning 10 games this year. They get Seattle next, and I’ll be interested in seeing how they play against. And next we get Green Bay up north, on Sunday night. I don’t see that game ending well for the Bears. Aaron Rodgers has been a fucking nightmare for them. It’s not going to change.

    Yaaaaayyyyy! A win at the hydrobowl for the Bears! Finally, for the first time since 2013 when they beat the Bengals, the Bears have won a home opener! Right up until that blown-coverage play when the 49ers essentially gifted the Bears a touchdown, it looked like the Bears weren’t going to even break the plane in the game. It’s funny. The way the 49ers played is typically how the Bears lose games. (They get a lead, but fail to put it away, and then when the weather hits they get their butts whipped in a humiliating loss. Then from that point on you know the Bears are going to have a trash season. That’s been true for every Bears season since 2013, save for maybe 2018.) The 49ers were really playing like the 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 Bears, and the Bears in the first half were playing like the 2019, 2020, 2021 Bears.

    Matt Eberflus has not yet become Matt Uberlose, and the team seemed serviceable, at least when compared to the 49ers. But I’m sure the prime time deboning they’ll get next week from the Pakcers will set the Bears straight back in their ways.

    I liked the hydroplaning at the end of the game. I remember the 49ers doing that in 2019 at the team formerly known as the ‘skins, which was the same week that the Bears got blasted by the Saints at home and pretty much slid the 2019 season off the rails.

    The Bears really got lucky concerning the weather. They scored their comeback and took the lead, and right when the 49ers got the ball back down came the rain. Maybe the 49ers should have started Jimmy Garroppolo.

    Also, the Bears have even-year magic against the 49ers. They have won every single even-year meeting with them going back to 2014. (They used to have AFC North magic, but that ended last season.)

  4. John Says:

    To be sure, the Bears will absolutely be eliminated from playoff contention by week 12. It is inevitable. It’s merely been slightly delayed. But I still love being optimistic and hoping.

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    I must say, they stuck to running the ball quite a bit despite the defense of the 49ers not giving them much. 37 runs to 17 passes. That’s actually what needs to be done in order to win. It chews up the clock and keeps the defense rested (as long as they get first downs).

    I still see maybe a 5 win season , you can’t fix what Pace did in 1 year !

    As a Packers fan, I must comment of the showing the Pack made in Minnesota today – VOMIT!! I’m ready to can both La Fleur and Rodgers for the second year in a row they didn’t show up. Hey, Matt, maybe next year, if you last that long, you might want to play the Varsity in some of those preseason games. Bears will beat the Packers next week. You get bet the house on it this team smells of rancid spoiled fried chicken.

  8. chucky Says:

    Ernie, I don’t the Bears are going to beat the Packers next week. I fact, while we’re on the subject of smells, by the end of this season, you’ll probably say that the Bears smell like carp that’s been dead for three days under your car seat after it’s been sitting on a 100-degree day.

    Meh. Green Bay is what happens when you have a generational QB talent for 15 years but never get him first round talent. They give him rookie late round WRs, outcasts, and these projects. It actually worked okay with Ted Thompson because he was great at scouting receivers (his defensive picks…not so much). Gutekunst seems better at drafting D but WRs…I guess we’ll see. That one drop though…wtf lol.

    Chuckster!

    Laurence Holmes echoed what you said about the team actually making second half adjustments. Seeing as the Bears haven’t made an adjustment in the last quarter-century to win a game, this is a big freaking deal!

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
