Predictions for the 2022-23 season.

May 16, 2022

The schedule is out. I am late to the party posting. But I must say, most of us regulars here have been right in the past with these things. For me, I don’t see more than four wins on the schedule. The good news is that there are only three primetime games this year. Thankfully, the shitty football we watch is done and out of the way by late Sunday afternoon. Matt EberLOSE will have a fun year coaching this band of misfits.

The only wins I see are as follows: Texans, Giants, Lions (the first meeting) and, dare I say, the Packers. Yes. Those Packers in early December. Remember folks. There is one game every single season that the Bears have no business winning and end up doing so. I’m going all out with this prediction that the fourth and final victory of the season will be against the Packers.

Feel free to add your predictions in the comments. FIRE RYAN POLES!

Message to Ryan Poles: GO FUCK YOURSELF, YOU STUPID MOTHERFUCKER.

First, it’s Trevor Fucking Semen. Now it’s Nathan Peterman? Historically, one of the worst quarterbacks in NFL history was given a deal with the Bears. The Bears literally have two of the worst statistical quarterbacks in history (cue Yeti).

So the Bears didn’t bother to draft a quarterback that at least has some potential? Maybe even sign someone undrafted? Either is better than these two fucking dweebs.

Fuck Ryan Poles. Seriously, fuck this guy. He’s WORSE than Ryan Pace ever was and that dipshit signed Mike Glennon.

Have I mentioned that Ryan Poles can go fuck himself? Yeah, he can go fuck himself with a rusty fence post.

Chucky, you may need to get that wooden spoon ready. FUCK OUR TEAM!

Are any of these draft picks worth a damn?

May 6, 2022

After seeing Ryan Poles basically do what past Bear general managers have done by trading down for more picks, you would guess that history is repeating itself. But will it actually be different this time? My guess is no and I’ll give you one reason: He drafted a punter with one of the picks. They already have Pat O’Donnell. Why waste one of the picks on another one?

The Bears also drafted some players for the secondary. Are they actually bright enough to know how to cover a receiver? That seems to have been an issue for the last, I don’t know, 30 years. Fuck.

Discuss.

2 39 KYLER GORDON CB WASHINGTON
2 48 JAQUAN BRISKER S PENN STATE
3 71 VELUS JONES JR. WR TENNESSEE
5 168 BRAXTON JONES OT SOUTHERN UTAH
5 174 DOMINIQUE ROBINSON DE MIAMI (OH)
6 186 ZACHARY THOMAS OT SAN DIEGO STATE
6 203 TRESTAN EBNER RB BAYLOR
6 207 DOUG KRAMER C ILLINOIS
7 226 JA’TYRE CARTER OG SOUTHERN
7 254 ELIJAH HICKS FS CAL
7 255 TRENTON GILL P NC STATE

The Draft is upon us. How will Ryan Poles fuck this up?

April 22, 2022

Certainly, him signing Trevor Semen is already a sign that this disast-era isn’t going to go well. And here I was thinking Jerry Angelo was the worst. Sheesh.

Here are the picks for the Bears. Who should they draft? It doesn’t have a specific player. But maybe a certain position? From the six that they have, they should not trade down for anybody. Just play with the cards that are dealt. May I suggest in this order: Offensive line, wide receiver, offensive line, secondary, linebacker, secondary. And sign more undrafted secondary players because I’m certain the ones they draft will end up being shitty.

Round 2: No 39

Round 2: No. 48 (from LAC) 

Round 3: No. 71 

Round 5: No. 148 (from HOU) 

Round 5: No. 150 

Round 6: No. 186 

Thank you, Pat.

It’s a shitty ending to a great career. The Blackhawks have forced one of the few good things about this franchise out in Pat Foley. Last season, he made a comment that offended so many dumbasses and right after, it was announced that he was going to be retiring after this season. The comment was something about giving credit to all of the people behind the scenes that made the broadcast under difficult circumstances. He made a reference to not being able to handle it if he had to do it. Yes, it was in poor taste. But it wasn’t that major of an issue. Yet, everyone got pissed.

Then, this past season happened with shit that was way worse that he had nothing to do with. Yet, he was only doing a limited number of games. The only bright spot this year was him calling games and he didn’t do very many of them.

As a fan, it sucks. I’m all about bringing in someone who was a fan. But I guess nothing lasts forever. I’ll always remember Foley for calling National broadcasts on Fox back in the mid-90’s. And whenever the Blackhawks were playing those same games, even better.

The Blackhawks are in a very bad place now both on and off the ice. It’s been difficult just trying to pay attention to it. I’m praying better days happen soon. But it would have been nice if Pat Foley was still on the broadcasts.

Three weeks to go. As it is usually around this time of year, it’s pretty slow. I’ll leave this thread up for whatever you want to talk about.

Also, the Bulls really suck and don’t deserve my time to write about them. I will say this, though. At least the players from this team aren’t “hateable.” The same cannot be said for the teams of a decade ago with shitty players and a bum head coach.

Fire away.

Ryan Poles | One step forward, two steps back.

March 28, 2022

Trevor Fucking Simien. Really? A guy who has done absolutely nothing in the last five or six years in the NFL is now with the Bears. I don’t even care about the money (it’s $4 million). Was there nobody else better? This is deja vu of when Ryan Pace thought it was cute to sign Mike Fucking Glennon.

Why couldn’t the Bears take a quarterback in the later rounds to be a backup if or when Fields shows that he is a bust?

Trevor Fucking Semen isn’t the answer. Yeah, that’s his name. Trevor Fucking Semen. I can’t get pissed off at him. I suck at playing football too and if a team offered me $4 million to play, I’m not going to think twice.

Ryan Poles, fuck you, dumbass. Your name is going at the top of the header.

Damn it, Illini. Just, damn it.

March 21, 2022

Fuck. Just fuck. The Illini have let me down again. Another season of “we’re talking cutting down the nets at the end of the season” to “can’t even get out of the first weekend” of the tournament.

I’ve been an Illini fan my entire life. Never went there, but obviously born and raised in Illinois. Never left. Since I can remember, I’ve loved college basketball and Illinois became my team. But damn, this stings. For the second year after “high expectations,” they have bowed out in the second round. Last year still pisses me off more losing to fucking Loyola. Fuck Loyola.

This year, they barely pulled it out against Chattanooga. Yesterday, they come back to tie the game despite it still feeling like they were down 20. Then, the wheels fell off. I guess it really is called “March Madness” for a reason.

It still sucks. I was feeling shitty in 2001 after the Elite Eight loss. Then in 2005 with the loss in the National Championship. I was completely deflated and depressed after that. It was nothing but regression after. The last two years under Brad Underwood, it was back to “relevance.” Although it’s been really frustrating. Last year was a gut-punch and yesterday, just pure exhaustion.

It’s very hard to win a National Championship in Division I basketball. Even the all-time great schools only have one or two titles in nearly 85 years or whatever. But damn. Can I just have one for my team?

Ryan Poles *may* have the right idea with the re-build.

March 14, 2022

Khalil Mack has been traded for two picks. Tarik Cohen and Eddie Goldman have been cut. All of these guys cost the Bears a ton of money and it’s no longer a concern. With Mack, the Bears received a pick for this year and another next year.

It’s evident that Poles is making a conscious attempt to clean up the mess that Pace and Nagy left. It could be a while.

Do you think Ryan Poles is doing the right thing? I still feel it’s a bit too early for a definitive answer. I am treading with caution. The good news is that it appears he’s trying to replenish draft picks that were basically given away by his predecessor. Contending teams are built through the draft.

Apologies for not being here much as my life has been absolutely hectic. Obviously, we’re in a period where much isn’t going on with the Bears. Free agency will be in the middle of March with the Draft happening at the end of April.

Chucky mentioned a few weeks back that the Bears are raising ticket prices for the upcoming season. What else is new? The Bears can’t bother to put competent coaches in charge and haven’t been a serious contender since I was in college. Yet, they want to charge you more money?

Fire away.
