Who do you have winning the Super Bowl?

It would be nice to see the 49ers get there and win. I can’t stand the Eagles. I’d be okay if the Bengals won as well.

Fire away.

As expected, Kevin Warren is only the president for a new stadium.

January 17, 2023

A president of a professional football team should be the one to oversee the general manager and coach. Unless the team is the Bears, then no.

Below is the press conference from earlier today. It’s another one of those “he’s such a great guy” things. So Ryan Poles and Matt Eber-LOSE will roam freely fucking up the team as George McCaskey tells everyone that he has all the faith in them. Meanwhile, Kevin Warren will be figuring out more ways to fuck taxpayers on not one, but two stadiums.

Newsflash: New stadiums don’t all of a sudden, make a team win. But I guess anyone who thinks like that is an idiot.

God help us.

Our 36-year nightmare is over with Ted Phillips. Now, another one begins with Kevin Warren.

January 12, 2023

I always said I would believe it when I see it. And it has happened. Ted Phillips is gone.

Now, we are stuck with Kevin Warren. The former Big Ten Commissioner. And the pessimism will continue. Why?

First, this idiot is responsible for the Big Ten to have 16 teams total by next year. Don’t call a conference “Big Ten” when it has more than ten teams. It’s stupid. Pedophile State joined the conference in 1990 to make it 11. Fine. But the fact that Nebraska, Maryland and Rutgers joined is absurd and with USC and UCLA set to join, it’s become overkill.

This guy has proven to be all about making money and not making the product better. The quality is diminishing at a fast pace. He’s all about money and building stadiums. Nothing else.

And here is Kevin Warren to help the Bears build a new stadium. To make matters worst, the stadium will be put it in a place where traffic on a random Tuesday afternoon is absolute garbage. The Arlington Heights’ area sucks and getting there is even worse. There is no easy way to get there nor get out. Imagine when 90,000 people in cars flock on a very short expressway for a game.

Just over 20 years ago, the Bears remodeled Soldier Field. They couldn’t have simply put a dome on it back then? I swear, this franchise believes they can truly save time by wiping their asses before they take a shit. And here’s a shocker. The Bears are still on the hook for around $640 million for the renovations. Over 20 years later and they still owe that much? Of course, I’m sure taxpayers are responsible for paying that back. A new stadium will cost at a minimum, double that. And guess who will be paying for that?

Yep. Residents like some of us here in Illinois.

A number one pick and all the cap space in the world isn’t worth a damn when someone incompetent is making the moves.

January 10, 2023

I owe no apology for the headline of this post. I have experienced shitty Bears football for over 30 years. Some others here have dealt with the bullshit even longer.

I have zero optimism that Ryan Poles knows what he’s doing. Same for Matt Eberflus. What should have been a turning point after they shocked the world by beating the Patriots on Monday Night Football resulted in losing every game after.

Sure, trades of Robert Quinn and Roquan Smith hurt the defense. But let’s be real here: There were at least five games after those trades that the Bears still should have won. Everyone is to blame. The players for fucking up in key situations and the coaches for the shitty play-calling. Both were at fault for those losses.

So the Bears have all this cap space. Great. But this isn’t basketball where three superstar free agents can be signed and instantly, they are contenders. It doesn’t work that way in the NFL. Drafting players who are actually good are the ones that matter.

Last year, Poles drafted all busts. And don’t tell me Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker are good. They are rotten. Velus Jones can go fuck himself. Go ahead and check the rest of that class and let me know who stood out to you. I’ll be here waiting.

The fact that the Bears couldn’t even find ONE outstanding player in the draft last year is reason for the panic button to be pressed. 11 players drafted and one of those was punter Trenton Gill. Other than him, who from that class will be on the team in two years? And for the record, I think at least three of those players aren’t even on the roster anymore. That’s not a good sign.

Want more of a reason to know that him being in charge isn’t a good sign? Look no further than the amazing signings of the backup quarterbacks. Trevor Semen and Nathan PeterStroker. The statistically worst quarterbacks in NFL history were signed. Maybe they should have used one of those picks on a quarterback?

Ryan Poles failed this team. And this April, it can be the same thing all over again.

Bears vs. Vikings Thread

January 8, 2023

We’ve finally reached the end. One of the worst seasons in the 103-year old franchise will be over around 3:00 today.

It’s a simple scenario. The Bears lose and they guaranteed at least the second spot in the draft. They win and risk being as high as the fourth overall pick.

The sooner they draft, the less time we all have to wait on who the next bust will be for this team.

Nathan PeterWhacker is starting this Sunday.

January 4, 2023

Good! Why play Fields? I mean, the guy sucks anyway. Whether it’s him, the offensive line or the shitty coaches (or maybe all three) is another discussion. There isn’t a need to risk him getting killed in a very meaningless game.

Nathan PeterWhacker is statistically the worst quarterback in NFL history. And we all know how shitty that is. We’ve lived through the eras like Jonathan Quinn and Todd Collins. And PeterWhacker has worst numbers than those two fuckwads.

Fuck. Now I’m getting flashbacks.

The Bears need to lose along with the Texans winning on Sunday. That could happen. If so, should the Bears at least consider taking a new quarterback with that first pick? Some may think I’m insane. But I listened to some sports radio and others are suggesting the same thing.

Fields could end up sucking ass. Or getting hurt. The Bears should definitely look into an insurance policy at the position.

Your thoughts in the thread.

One of the worst seasons in franchise history and no one will be held accountable.

How PATHETIC is it when history tells you that Ryan Pace and Phil Emery were better general managers than Ryan Poles?

How PATHETIC is it when history tells you that Matt Fucking Nagy was a better head coach than Matt EberLOSE?

How PATHETIC is it when history tells you the Bears broke a franchise record for consecutive losses (nine)?

And yet, everyone will be brought back next year. We all know what will happen in the end-of-season press conference because it happens every single year. George and Ted will get up to the podium and tell everyone that they aren’t happy with the results, but that the team is “making progress.” It’s repetitive. It’s the same thing every year.

But I know how the Bears can make that “progress” that they say they are making. Instead of trying to build a stadium in a suburb that is an absolute pain in the ass to get to on a random Tuesday afternoon, George should announce that he is selling the team to an actual fan of the team. Someone who knows how to build a winning team and actually wants to. I already know someone is reading this and thinking I’m stupid for suggesting a fan actually buys the team. How much worse can it get?

This team has hit rock bottom.

But it won’t happen. So I am just dreaming.
