Quick reminder: Matt Nagy is a fraud.

August 15, 2019

As we approach the second preseason game for the Bears, I just wanted to remind all of you that Matt Nagy blew at least three of the five losses last year for the Bears.

I’m afraid to say that this year will be the same. It will be big leads that are blown because Nagy doesn’t understand that teams have running backs for a reason and that it isn’t necessary to pass the ball on 2nd and inches. In fact, it’s stupid if it happens.

This past January, we were all kicked in the nuts from Cody Parkey. Trubisky did everything he could to give the Bears a chance to win that game on the final drive. Sure, the defense should have made the stop. But at the end of the day, they wouldn’t even have been in that game if it wasn’t for the defense playing as well as it did despite Matt Nagy’s stupidity.

The chance to win a Super Bowl has never been greater than it is right now. It’s unfortunate that an impostor of a head coach is in charge.

Oh, let’s not forget about Ryan Pace. This guy still can’t figure out how to find a kicker. For crying out loud, this guy trades draft picks just to move up two spots or whatever. He outbids himself to draft players.

I’ll have some final thoughts on the Bears before the season mercifully begins in three weeks. I’ll be at the game against the Packers. I’m already anxious with the feeling that the Bears will have a 20-point lead again only to blow it in typical fashion. Then, Matt Nagy will tell everyone in the press conference that “this was a tough loss” and “we’ll grow from this and correct our mistakes.”

Fuck.

11 years.

August 1, 2019

I know I haven’t posted much at all the last few months. I’ve had the excuses of being bored and just being pissed off at Chicago sports. All of that is true. This past summer, I’ve also been very busy and dealing with a lot from work.

But as I signed in this morning, I was given the notification that it was the anniversary of this website. It started on the first of August 11 years ago. Wow.

Again, a lot of this has been repeated. But damn. This website, albeit with a very small crowd these days, is still around. I can remember having 20 or more on an active discussion when it was started. We’ve seen people come and go. From Irish Yeti’s stats all the way down to Jimmy D.’s love for red heads, it’s been here. We can’t forget about Chucky’s rants about wanting to saw someone’s arms off either.

If I tried naming a bunch of you to thank, I am sure I will forget some. But I have I thank Genrebuster for posting when he can. He’s a good man.

I know the Bears started training camp last week. I’ve been wanting to post something about that and maybe I’ll get to it eventually. But for now, feel free to post anything you would like in this thread. It can be about things from the past that was discussed on here or anything now.

Even if you are someone who just comes by to laugh at what any of us say, thanks for reading.  For the ones who still post on here, I thank all of you for the support. You guys are all great people that I can call friends. I still wish we all can get together sometime soon. For crying out loud, we’ve been trying to do this for the last decade. Let’s try to get on this. God bless you all.

Ernie…this one’s for you!

First off….I apologize for being AWOL for so long. Life, work, music…they all got in the way. I won’t bore you with the sordid details….but I apologize for dropping the “fucking ball” (thx, Giselle!).

Now, let’s get down to business….I just saw this: https://www.nj.com/sports/2019/07/mlb-rumors-cubs-theo-epstein-laying-groundwork-to-fire-manager-joe-maddon-hire-joe-girardi.html

Ernie, I think I know where you stand (bwah hahahaha) …but I am interested to hear from ALL that want to weigh in….and don’t don’t hold back, or I’ll summon the “Ghost of Leo Durocher”.

I havn’t given up on the Cubs yet….given the injuries, etc. U dig. Regardless, Darvish SUCKS. But there’s still a lot of baseball to be played.

Fro. I’ll be in town 7/13-15…I’m on a short leash but let me know if you might have time for a burger, etc. Sorry for short notice.

Open thread.

It’s been a while.

Yeah. I know. I am sort of in this whole “no man’s land” when it comes to sports. The Bears drafted some players that Nagy will probably misuse. Or they will just suck because Ryan Pace is Nagy’s little puppet.

The Bulls ended up getting the seventh pick in the Draft for the third year in a row. But hey, at least I am not a Knicks’ fan. Fuck the Knicks.

The Blackhawks will be choosing third in their respective Draft.

The Fire (and Passion) are terrible this year in the world of soccer. I can’t even watch any of their games because ESPN is a bunch of scum by putting most or all of their games are on their paid service (ESPN+).

Again, apologies for being absent. Lousy sports results in lack of desire to post anything. Work has also consumed my life much more lately.

And they’re off…with a PATHETIC whimper!

Where the fuck is the pitching?

I know the season has just begun and there is much baseball to be played…but I don’t see the Cubs competing with ANYBODY if they don’t right the ship immediately.

What are the odds that Darvish becomes the biggest Cubs bust ever?

PATHETIC.

Matt Nagy = Lovie Smith: Jordan Howard traded to the Eagles.

March 29, 2019

This smells just like Lovie Smith. It’s getting rid of players because they are simply not “his guys.” And of course, Ryan Pace is the puppet while the fraud, Matt Nagy, pulls the strings. We saw it with Thomas Jones after the Super Bowl loss in 2007. We saw it with Greg Olsen after the Packers beat them in the NFC Championship in 2011. It’s happening again.

Jordan Howard is gone. Matt Nagy feels he isn’t “his guy” and wants different players to fit his system.

So, what he’s what he’s letting everyone know is that he doesn’t want to practice common sense while coaching his team. He wants to be stupid and pass the ball when it’s 2nd and inches. He wants to keep passing the ball if the team is up two touchdowns just like the game against the Dolphins this past season. He wants to keep calling pass plays so the team blows the game.

This is a tire fire in progress. Fuck Matt Nagy. This guy is a scam artist and it’s going to be even more exposed this coming season. I never wanted him to begin with because of his inept failures with the Chiefs as the offensive coordinator. And nothing has changed since.

Remember, if a team is going to get rid of a player, they better replace them with someone as equal or better. I doubt it’s going to happen here because everyone in charge is a fucking moron. The Bears won 12 games despite Matt Nagy.

Watch and see. The fraud of a head coach is going to get a five-year extension sometime soon just because Michael McCaskey thinks the arrow is pointing up. If “pointing up” refers to “pointing up someone’s ass,” then sure.

Another open thread for you folks

March 22, 2019

Greetings to all. I am sorry for not posting much lately. Work has consumed me and I also had a shitty cold that lasted a couple of weeks.

Now, onto sports. The NCAA Tournament is underway. As of the conclusion of the first day, I already have three losses in my bracket.

The Blackhawks lost yet, another tough game. They are four points out with nine games left. Needless to say, time is running out. It’s not going to get any easier.

The Bears signed some players. But it doesn’t matter because Matt Nagy is the head coach and all he wants to do is dumb shit that costs the team games.

The Bulls, well, they are bad at sucking. Even when they are supposed to lose, they win. That decreases their chances of a better draft pick. Sheesh.

Feel free to discuss amongst yourselves. Or I should say, disgust amongst yourselves. Whatever.
