Done | Cowboys 14 Bears 0 (First quarter)


This recap is early because quite frankly, I have better things to do with my Sunday. The lawn needs to be mowed and I want to eat lunch.

The defense can’t stop a nosebleed. The “I-Pass” defense is reigning supreme. The offense is back to the same old shit.

I knew this game was over the second the ball was kicked off. The Bears were already done.

I’m out. You all can comment on the remainder of the game for your own recap of sorts.

    Me, a half hour ago: Bears down 21-7. Ugh.

    Me, 5 min. ago: Bears/Cowboys are nationally televised? Okay lemme take a look…

    Me, just now: Bears now down 28-7. Never mind, time to go shoe shopping…

    Hamp and O’B are gonna blow a fuse tonight…

    dvx….They were a little too optimistic this morning during the pre-game. I knew they shouldn’t have been. Sometimes I wonder where their heads are at.


    I have another issue I need to talk about. Granted, this was/still is a real shitty game, I couldn’t watch it. All I have is over the air broadcast TV. Cable and satellite TV are not worth the fucking fortune you need to shell out for the 9 million channels that you get that you never, ever use.


    So, all I was left was “Eye on Football”, which I generally listen to anyway since the broadcast teams mostly suck donkey dick. But I always have the game on in the background, and I pay pretty close attention to it. Fro, I know you don’t want any of us to get political on this forum, so allow me to apologize for this one time. I want to kick George W. Bush square in the goddamned nuts, small target that they are, for switching TV broadcasting signals from analog to digital after 9/11. My television viewing experience has sucked ass since that goddamned day, and I hold that stupid piece of shit son-of-a-fucking-BITCH responsible. Again Fro, I’m sorry to do this, and the ONLY reason I did it today is because FOX32 didn’t come in worth a flying fuck. It won’t happen again.

    Chucky– I always wonder about Chicago sports analysis. The Bears offense closed to 4 points todays and O’bradovich is bitching up a storm about how bad the offense is. Callers are telling him he is a genius. If you can’t stop the run just go home.

  5. Og Says:

    Hey Chucky, since this shit show has only won a single playoff game since the Bush administration, are you really missing anything?

  6. chucky Says:

    Hey Og, have they actually won that many?

  7. dvxprime Says:

    I hear you loud and clear, Chucky. My cable signal was a shitshow all last weekend. Surprisingly, it has been present for duty through English Premier League, college football, Bears-Cowboys and MLS Playoffs.

    Guess I didn’t miss that much from when I switched from the Bears game to the MLS playoffs. Monsters of the Midway? Not today.

    Lord I’m glad I didn’t watch this game

    It’s all good. When I was growing up, I remember all too well about the tower antenna in the back yard. We had a “Channel Master” which would turn the antenna in any given direction. Directly North would make the Madison channels come in perfectly. Turning it East would give me the Rockford channels and on some really hot days, I would pick up some Chicago ones. Good times.

    Yeah, the digital television is garbage. I think it’s even worse where you’re at in the Northwest suburbs. It’s so damn difficult getting a signal there. I am fortunate to be 60 miles directly West of the city and thus, my antenna picks up nearly all of the channels.

    Anyone notice the Washington WhateverTeam is now 4-4? How did that happen? Look no further than their win against the Bears. Now, they’ve won three straight. Remember how the Giants pulled off their run? Yep. Against the Bears as well.

    It’s evident that when teams need a boost, playing the Bears solve a lot of a problems. The Cowboys struggled the last couple games. Their team is now fixed for a run as well.

    Mid LB Roquan Smith to Ravens for 2nd and 5th round picks.

    Well, Dak’s fantasy points did end up going boom (or especially Tony Pollard’s). I’ll say this about the Bears, for being 3-5 they’ve been actually pretty fun to watch on offense, at least for the past couple of games. Their defense in this game was nonexistent, but for playing the Cowboys the offense was pretty good (that’s what happens when you’re #1 in the NFL in rushing whoo-hoo!). Justin Fields had himself another good game, despite playing in an environment that could have very well been disastrous for him. My Dad remarked that he’s a cool customer and that he never looks fazed, so give him credit when considering how much pressure he’s under. At this point he might be the best thus far of the 2021 draft class, what with Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, and Mac Jones (Pro Bowler last year) both struggling at this point and Trey Lance being nonexistent because of injury. This year really reminds me a lot of the 2017 Chicago Bears season, where they were competitive in half a dozen of their losses, got blown out several times, and lost pretty well in another couple. The 2021 season as well. But I think they’re playing better than they were in both of those years. They look much more disciplined, they can be clumsy, certainly, but in 2017 and 2021 I saw far worse, and they don’t beat themselves with penalties. This team, at least since the mini-bye, is better than its record depicts. Again, I’m not sure if Matt Eberflus is quite as bad as we depict he is.

    In 2017 it was at this point, at 3-5, that they ran into the Packers game in which they absolutely face-planted (remember, Aaron Rodgers wasn’t even playing because he was injured, yet the Bears still lost to the Packers backup QB – and don’t forget the John Fox challenge humiliation), and that killed absolutely any potential of the 2017 season being good. It was also at this point last year, also at 3-5, that they ran into the 49ers fiasco which essentially began the current rebuild. I would have to say, gentlemen of this dark corner of the Internet, that next week against the Dolphins at home will really determine whether this season is a 2017 & 2021, meaning they implode against them (they probably will – I made the mistake of underestimating the Packers and 49ers in the aforementioned years), or if they’re good enough to win and be something else. There’s a lot of potential for 2023, what with all of their draft capital and cap space. Remember, after 2017 the year next was 2018. That Patriots game changed my outlook entirely.

  13. John Says:

    Well, I suppose the Bears will implode against the Dolphins because they just traded Roquan Smith! Heh! Bye-bye defense! Who’s going to be your playmakers now? Now they have absolutely no leadership on defense! You think Trevis Gipson is going to be your anchor? How about Kindle Vildor, Jaquan Brisker, or Kyler Gordon?

    Two draft picks are nice, I suppose. Part of me is wondering whether this is just some calculated scheme by Ryan Poles to get two draft picks, then when the Ravens try to sign Roquan Smith long term after the season he uses the sheer amount of cap space we’re going to have to suitor him back to Chicago with an even bigger deal, so he essentially cons the Ravens out of two draft picks for half a season’s worth play and gets him back in the end, as was his plan all along! But I severely doubt that, though it would be hilarious if that did happen. I don’t know. If it works out, Ryan Poles will sure look great. We’ve now got nine draft picks upcoming for 2023.
