Ryan Poles is making it rain. Someone needs to tell him that a Super Bowl-winning team can’t be bought.

March 14, 2023

Tremaine Edmunds | Linebacker from the Bills

T.J. Edwards | Linebacker from the Eagles

DeMarcus Walker | Defensive end from the Titans

Nate Davis | Offensive lineman from the Titans

Again, teams who win the Super Bowl generally build their teams in the draft. This isn’t the NBA where teams can sign two or three stars and become instant contenders. And with Ryan Poles’ track record of drafting, this isn’t encouraging at all.


If it were any other general manager, I’d be more optimistic about this trade.

March 11, 2023

Facts are facts. And the facts are that Ryan Poles drafted all busts last year. Just take a look at those picks and see who stood out as a potential star. I’ll wait.

In the mean time, the Bears did get a pretty good wide receiver in D.J. Moore along with the three extra picks through 2025. But how is D.J. Moore going to get the ball when Trevor Semen is out there throwing the ball not even close to him because Justin Fields is out with an injury? Because that’s exactly what is going to happen.

The reality is, Ryan Poles will just draft more busts than he already will with this trade. Since the Bears haven’t had a competent general manager in the last 35 years, I don’t see this changing. It’s very unfortunate.

The Bears should have kept the first overall pick and went with Bryce Young. A two-quarterback system should be installed on the rare occasion that Fields is healthy. But WHEN he gets hurt, Young will be ready.

But now, that chance is gone. The Bears should still look for a quarterback whether it’s with the ninth pick or in later rounds. Having Trevor Semen out there gives the team no chance. Seriously. You can have the defense of the 2000 Ravens out there and if Trevor Semen is the quarterback, they have zero chance of doing anything worth a damn.

I’m afraid to say that this trade will be more frustrating since more busts will be brought in and thus, more players to get pissed off at.

Trevor Semen was given a two-year contract????????

March 8, 2023

All this time, I thought this useless fuckwad was only under a one-year deal. This idiot is getting about $2 million and the cap hit is just north of $2.5 million. What a waste of space. Ryan Poles is seriously the dumbest fucking general manager ever. And this is after we all witnessed Jerry Angelo bringing in dipshits like Todd Collins and Jason Campbell.

We’re still about seven weeks from the NFL Draft. It appears that Ryan Poles is going to trade the overall pick. Instead of just one bust, he will have multiple busts with this trade.

I still feel I am alone in the idea of the Bears keeping the pick to get Bryce Young. Another quarterback is necessary because Fields is one more bad hit away from basically being done for his career. And better yet, getting Bryce Young or any other quarterback in the draft reduces the chances of Trevor Semen playing.

I know. It sounds ridiculous. But these are the Bears we are talking about.

Fuck Trevor Semen.

I have nothing.

It’s been a long winter in Chicago. The Bears were awful. The Bulls are trash. The Blackhawks are tanking (yay?) and my Fighting Illini basketball team has been underwhelming. So of course, I Google “depressing Chicago sports” and this is one of the pictures that came up. This describes me to a tee.

Us fans are too damn loyal. We all still watch and some of us still go to games despite the horseshit that is witnessed.

Super Bowl Open Thread

February 10, 2023

It’s very unfortunate that I have to want the Chiefs to win. That bald fuck Matt Nagy could get a Super Bowl ring. What a PATHETIC excuse for a football coach.

And I’ve hated the Eagles since that playoff game in 2002 where Hugh Douglas knocked out Jim Miller. Fuck the Eagles.

The Bengals had a little “Bears” in them.

February 1, 2023

Fourth quarter | Second to the last drive for the Bengals

2nd and 3 – Pass play for an incomplete

3rd and 3 – Pass play for an interception

Yes, the Bengals got the ball back before going three and out. The Chiefs drove down and won the game after a stupid penalty by the Bengals.

The Bengals could have done the obvious and run two straight times to get those three yards. But did they? Absolutely not.

This screamed “Bears” in the most poetic of ways. It just goes to show that there are other stupid coaches out there. They lost their chance to get back to the Super Bowl because of terrible play-calling.

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.

Your thoughts in the thread.

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.
