Bears vs. Falcons Thread


No recap for this game. I may chime in through the comment section. But I just don’t have the energy to fully invest myself in the Bears this season. Instead, the floor is yours. Share your thoughts before, during or after the game.

    Well, it’s refreshing for once to have a quarterback in Chicago that people actually care about. Not much love did Trubisky and Cutler get, but that’s the way things are. As for the thread about whether Fields should just be rested for the rest of the season, I say absolutely not. Injuries are a constant in the NFL, but depriving this guy of the chance to play when he’s a second year quarterback who’s just right about now maybe starting to find his confidence, what does it say to him to pull the plug and put him on ice? Fields is nowhere near done developing. The rest of this season is the preseason for 2023. He will not have any better chance to gain free experience without the crushing pressure of lofty expectations on his back than right now. If the Bears were to bench him and they start stinking again offensively next season, this would undoubtedly be pointed to as the culprit. I understand NFL records don’t mean much to win-loss rations, but gee whiz, let the guy have his crown. Justin Fields is potentially on course to set the NFL record for most QB rushing yards in a season, and us Bears fans should be thrilled about that. It can’t be understated how hard it is to do something like that. For the last three years, we’ve been enviously eying Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert, and co. To actually have a young, dynamic QB of that lot on our dreaded Chicagoland, where QBs go to die, is amazing. If Justin Fields pans out, it may ironically be the best thing that the much-hated Ryan Pace ever did for us.

    The Bears win the toss and defer , WTF is wrong Eberflus , you have the worst defense in the league and you let the Falcons have the ball first !! This is just more of the same shit we’ve seen under the McCaskey cluster fuck clown show !!

    Going back to the discussion regarding playing vs. shutting down Fields: I must respectfully disagree. Justin Fields needs as many NFL regular season snaps as possible. Unless the Bears are getting blown out in the second half of games, he needs to learn how to perform. We may never see hm with a 300-yd throwing game, but he can throw for two TDs and run for one or two more…so be it. Also, the Bears need to develop an O-line. If Da Bears are giving up six sacks a game, then I’d shut down field while learning how to untuck the line.

  4. Fro Dog Says:

    Did the Falcons just find the blueprint to stopping Fields? Just rush five and jump as he throws. Or, force him to throw it directly into the back of the head of one of his linemen.

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    Did Fields just break his collarbone?

    For the third time in as many bloody weeks! I have never seen a Bears team be this competitive and always keep coming up short! I’m sick of this! It appears I owe Chucky an apology, because he was right about Justin Fields getting worn down. He clearly looked that way here, and it seems like the Bears can’t always rely on their run game all the time. (Sigh) It didn’t help either that we didn’t have Khalil Herbert. The Bears on a number of drives looked like the Bears offense of the past three years. Our defense, despite getting two takeaways, still was not enough for us to win this game, and it always seems like whenever the Bears play any defense, the other side ends up having a big day despite how many points the Bears put up because of just how many times they’re able to sack Justin Fields! I don’t even think the Bears had any sacks today! Well, at least this improves their draft positioning further. There’s an argument to be made that the Bears should draft a linebacker to replace Roquan in the first round, or an Alshon Jeffrey-like wide receiver. Fields needs more passing assets so that he doesn’t have to perpetually rely on his legs! That, and the O-line, as always, needs work. Well, fellas, I doubt they’re even going to be able to tie their win record from last season, despite being a more competitive team than they were last year. They are going to finish at the bottom of the NFC North, as even the Lions are now coming alive. Their defense is a shadow of what it once was. Every single close game they’re in, they lose. 0-6 this season on game-winning or game-tying drives! That’s what separates the good from the bad. I’m telling you, we have a ton of potential to be great next season, but if Luke Getsy gets hired away, we will be right back in the wilderness next year, no matter how good of any draft picks we might have, or how much Fields may have developed.

    Jets W next week. Zack Wilson will have an amazing game, about as good as what the Jets D will have. Then will come the Packers and they’ll get their free W.

    When you turn on Hamp and O’B and have to listen to the news and commercials and shit…

  8. chucky Says:

    Fields might have a separated shoulder, according to Hamp and OB. What have I been saying the past month? WHAT THE FUCK DID I SAY, GODDAMNIT!!!!!! If they keep running Fields that he was going to get his ass killed. Well, if he separated his fucking shoulder he’s done for the year. Now we get the unmitigated (dis)pleasure of Trevor MOTHERFUCKING Semen for the rest of the goddamned year. So, I guess the question of whether to bench him or play him has become academic. HE’S FUCKING INJURED NOW! FUCK YOU LUKE GETSY, FUCK YOU MATT EBER-LOSE, AND FUCK THE ENTIRE GODDAMNED MCCASKEY CRIME FAMILY FOR SUBJECTING US TO THIS FUCKING GODDAMNED BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!

    And I don’t think I’ve ever heard Hampton and O’Bradovich this pissed off. They’re actually enraged over this game. Atlanta is 32nd in pass defense, and Fields didn’t hit 200 yards again. OB is going to stroke out on-air, I’m afraid. He damn near said that he’s “goddamned” frustrated on-air. He nearly let it slip out. I’ve heard him angry on the radio before, too many times actually, but I don’t remember him nearly slipping up like that. This is really a bad situation we’re in right now.

    It’s excruciating just how close the Bears come! This game, had Cairo Santos just had a little more air on that kick, the Bears would have been up three more and maybe it’s the Falcons who don’t get points before halftime. Had Justin Fields just had a little less air on that deep ball for Darnell Mooney, he scores a touchdown and the Bears are up seven more.

    Then there’s all the other weeks. Against Washington, had that receiver just caught it a few more inches into the end zone. Against Minnesota, had Kindle Vildor not fumbled. Against the Giants, had he not fumbled again! Against Miami, had St. Brown just caught that ball or had the refs thrown the flag on that P.I. on Claypool. Against Detroit, had Cairo Santos just made that extra point, and/or had the refs not taken that Bears interception away on a baloney call (and it was a baloney call, according to UrinatingTree, and the refs screwed us again.)

    This Bears team is the most competitive an NFL team can get without actually winning those games. They lose games in the closest, most painful fashion. In fact, because they’re 0-6 in them, they are slated to be picking in the top five, maybe even as low as number two or number three. Yet, I think that they’re better than their record suggests, and you know what, losing all these close games might actually be the best thing for them. I know you guys hate everyone and their mother who runs the Bears, but this team might legitimately be a few good players away from becoming a deep-run playoff team. And considering just how much salary cap space and draft picks (all of which will be extremely high because of how deceptively bad they are) they’ll have, we might see a radically different team next year. (Presuming radical doesn’t end up being radically bad.)

    John, I understand and respect your optimism, but I must respectfully disagree with it. It won’t matter where they land in the draft, and it doesn’t matter how competitive they are now. Ryan Poles is going to draft like the moron that he is, and the coaching staff will undermine the players at every turn. Getsy is a fucking idiot who, for whatever reason, can’t seem to formulate a game plan. Eberflus seems like HE is being led by his staff, not the other way around. This is NOT the coaching staff this team needs right now. Our frendt Skip is quite correct when he points the blame on the McCaskey Family. They own the team, they make the decisions on who to hire as GM, and, as always, they fail miserably at picking the right man for the job. I lay this entire clusterfuck at their doorstep. They own this mess. I will have zero faith in this organization until it’s sold to someone who actually gives a damn about winning football games. It’s that simple.

  11. John Says:

    Honestly, I don’t know, Chucky, but you were right about Justin Fields and his potential for injury. The unfortunate thing is that, as good of a running team as we are, our best running back IS Justin Fields. I think he has even more rushing yards than Khalil Herbert. As good as him and David Montgomery are, they’re no Nick Chubb or Derrick Henry. We can’t rely on those two alone to win games. Justin Fields essentially has to be the leading rusher. And the bad O-line and the lack of easy dump off options to get the ball out of Fields’s hands quickly is a killer. He holds onto the ball for the longest in the entire NFL, which is good for running but is also why he takes so many sacks and hits.

  12. Skip Says:

    Chucky , Deja vu again with yet another Moron at Gm and head coach , that’s 5 TIMES under the McCaskey crime family and that will NEVER change under their ownership !!

  13. chucky Says:

    It sure is Deja Vu Skip, no doubt about it. And it flat out fucking sucks donkey ass. I’m goddamned sick and tired of it.

    John, you just described the big problem for the Bears offense. Fields HAS been their best rusher, and that doesn’t equate to a healthy quarterback. They need so many upgrades that it can’t be handled in just one draft, and even if it could, I don’t trust Ryan Poles to draft the right players. We’re in for a really long dry spell as far as wins are concerned. They may not win another game this year. Any other team would cut bait and dump these asshats, but we’re talking about the Bears. Nothing will happen to fix this until THE OLD BITCH wakes up from her coma and gets pissed off like she did at the end of the Marc Trestman disaster.

  14. chucky Says:

    It seems that dipshit Cam Ellis from 670 The Score has never heard of us before.

    This one line in particular stuck out to me. “I bet you $100 we all hear our first “time to shut him down!” argument sometime this week.” Hey fuckwad, where have been lately? Our number one fitness frendt, FroDog, already suggested that earlier this week. Try paying attention next time dipthong. It’s actually not that hard to do. And if this nimrod is passing out grades every Sunday, how in the fuck does he never grade the coaching staff. This guy is a fucking moron.

  15. John Says:

    Hey, Chucky, what do you think of DaWindyCity Productions? Have ever even heard of him, or do you hate him as much as Hub Arkush and Jeff Joniac XD? He’s pretty optimistic right now. Here’s a link to one of his videos that I watched. – Why the Bears may have the Brightest Future in the NFL

  16. chucky Says:

    Never heard of that guy John. But I did check him out from your link. My thoughts about him?

    Crack is a hell of a drug.
