Thank You, Joe Maddon!

October 3, 2019

Well…….I, for one am disappointed that Joe won’t return in 2020. He was the perfect manager for the Cubs when hired, and the 2016 World Series Championship proves it. I suspect that he was ready to move on, and wish him the best moving forward.

I’ll write more later….in the meantime, I know my frendt Ernie is happy that Maddon is gone…what about the rest of youse?

…waiting to see who the next Cubs manager will be….tick tock.

 

Leaving points off the board: Bears 16 Vikings 6

September 29, 2019

Boring? Maybe? Frustrating? Yes. Annoying? Indeed. That’s how I felt during this game. The Bears were given every chance to stomp all over the Vikings and yet, it was no more than a two-possession game. How did the Bears not score at least ten more points? I am not going to be confident about this team until they play four full quarters of a game without any stupid decision-making.

Mitch Trubisky – Awful injury. As soon as I saw the replay, it looked like a broken collarbone. That’s at least six weeks off. At least. Chase Daniel stepped in and did a really great job. He’s going to need to step up.

Matt Nagy – How stupid is this guy? How many fucking times do I have to watch Cordarelle Patterson take a snap and run for one or no yards? It’s 3rd and 2. GIVE IT TO A RUNNING BACK YOU STUPID FUCK. Yeah, I’ll blame Nagy for leaving points off the field. Like last week, this game should have been a blowout.

Running game – Non-existent. The PATHETIC excuse of a head coach is to blame for that.

Defense –¬†Two turnovers and a ton of sacks. Great. Again, too bad the offense made that go to waste for most of the game. But what still frustrates me is the way they give up a ton of yards and points when another team is in a hurry-up offense. We saw that late in this game. It needs to stop.

Eddie Jackson – Okay, the Bears got the ball back on this drive I’m going to talk about. But they could have had much better field position after the Vikings were stopped deep in their own territory. Jackson pushes a player in the end zone after a dust up with other players and instead of a 4th and long, it’s a fresh set of downs for the Vikings. Undisciplined. Stupid.

The Bears are now tied for first place with the Packers (Packers hold the tiebreaker as of now) with a record of 3-1. The Raiders are up next in London.

I’m so glad Matt Nagy told Ryan Pace to trade Jordan Howard. That bum only scored three touchdowns Thursday Night!

September 26, 2019

Stat time (cue Yeti): 15 carries – 87 yards – two rushing touchdowns; three catches for 28 yards and a receiving touchdown

I thought he was on his way to a fourth late in the game as well.

The more success Jordan Howard has with the Eagles, the more Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy show that they are the biggest frauds in football.

Fuck both of these guys.

A whole bunch of PATHETIC: Bears 31 Redskins 15

September 23, 2019

How does this defense get five turnovers and yet, still nearly blow it? How does the offense basically get spotted a 28-0 lead and blow it? How does Matt Nagy on first and goal call for a pass play that appropriately gets intercepted at the goal line?

We’ve seen this before. Shades of last year against the Dolphins? Why pass when the ball can be easily ran?

It’s because Matt Nagy is a sad excuse for a professional football coach. We’ve seen this before. Shades of last year against the Packers in Green Bay? 28-0 lead and before you know it, the Redskins are marching down to get within one score. Thankfully, Case Keenum tried to jump for the first down only to have the ball knocked out of his hands.

Penalties. Bad play-calling. We saw it all.

The defense? Again, great for five turnovers. But fuck. What’s with giving up big plays on drives late in halves for points? We saw it in Green Bay last year and in the playoffs. We even saw it last week when they blew a ten-point lead in the second half. Only a miracle in the final seconds saved that. And we saw it tonight before halftime.

It’s time for Matt Nagy and his playbook of trickery to take a hike. It’s time to bring in someone who actually knows how to give the ball to a running back instead of CORDARELLE FUCKING PATTERSON. HE’S NOT A FUCKING RUNNING BACK.

What else am I missing? I don’t know fucking know. Sure, if someone told me the Bears were going to win this game 31-15 without even watching it, I’d be happy. But damn. This is really painful to watch and will be all season. This is a very bad offense and the defense is very bad when the game is on the line. The offense is to blame for most of it.

The Bears play the Vikings next Sunday at home. The injuries are piling up. I need to go buy some Pepto Bismol.

Shades of Kevin fucking Gregg!

September 21, 2019

Whose idea was it to sign Kimbrell? He’s a one man wrecking crew…PATHETIC.

Color me DISGUSTED.

tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…

Exhausted: Bears 16 Broncos 14

September 15, 2019

13-3 Bears with one quarter left. Bears intercept the Broncos near the goal line. No problem, right?

Wrong.

Matt Nagy did it again. He was out there calling timeouts to “stall” the Broncos and instead, it gives them more time to get a play and convert on fourth downs to continue drives. Before we know it, the game is about to be tied.

Then, the Bears were given a gift of a delay of game. The Broncos are about to try an extra pont.

Then, Buster Skrine jumps offside with the Broncos MISSING the extra point.

It was divine intervention that the Bears were going to lose this game after the Broncos converted the two-point conversion.

On a fourth-and-ten, Trubisky threw a huge pass to Allen Robinson and in the nick of time, fell to the ground and called a timeout. ONE. SECOND. LEFT.

Eddy Pineiro nails a 52-yard field goal to win the game. HOLY SHIT.

After all of that, the Bears finally win a game that they blew. And Matt Nagy should be fired before the press conference. Fuck him.

The Bears can’t clinch a playoff spot in September, but they can certainly lose one.

September 11, 2019

It’s a fact. Teams that start 0-2 aren’t likely to make the playoffs. The stats (cue Yeti) show that only a tenth of teams to start that way still get a playoff spot.

I would say that this Sunday against the Broncos is a must-win in every sense.

The season opener pissed us off. As I look at other games around the league, the Bears weren’t the only team to look awful.

I still feel this is an easy fix. Sadly, it won’t happen because Pace and Nagy are married to this for years to come. Matt Nagy is a fraud who thinks he’s an offensive wizard. In reality, he’s an offense to legit coaches. Again, a 2nd and 1 and he calls a passing play? Then, last week, a “trick” play to Cordarelle Patterson? GIVE IT TO A RUNNING BACK OR DO A QUARTERBACK SNEAK.

I feel this is it for the Bears. Win this or Sunday or be eliminated from playoff contention.

1st and 40: Packers 10 Bears 3

September 6, 2019

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 1st and 40 in a football game before. Same goes for 2nd/3rd and 40 as well. Maybe I saw it on television, but never in person.

It’s late. Here’s your recap:

Matt Nagy is a fraud. This game furthers that evidence. Just keep passing on 2nd and inches. That will show them!

The defense couldn’t stop Rodgers when it mattered the most. The stars don’t look that great, but he made great plays when they were needed the most.

Next week, the Bears go to Denver. Yay?

Preseason Meatball Thoughts: Titans 19 Bears 15

August 30, 2019

Eddy Pineiro missed big time on an extra point; but he did redeem himself with some field goals after. Yay for him.

The sixth stringers on defense blew the game on the final drive. Go figure. Matt Nagy teams have a history of finding a way to fuck it up.

Tyler Bray looked good. Should he replace Chase Daniel as the backup? Or is this Caleb Hanie 2.0?

Bears vs. Packers next week at Soldier Field. Yours truly will be there. Will the Bears get a big lead and blow it like last year’s season opener? Or will the football spirits allow the Bears to do something they rarely do and that’s actually hold onto a victory?

If it’s the former, at least I don’t have to drive three and a half hours back home. It will be an hour instead.

Discuss!

Preseason Meatball Thoughts: Cut/Trade Chase Daniel? Andrew Luck retires. Bears 27 Colts 17

August 25, 2019

I admit, I was paying half-attention to this game being at work and later, at home cooking dinner and doing laundry. I did, however, catch the first part of the game where Chase Daniel was out throwing incomplete passes and getting sacked. Later on, the defense kicked ass by scoring more touchdowns than the offense did. Then, Tyler Bray came in and lead the Bears to a touchdown.

I try not to make too much out of the preseason. Of course Daniel sucked in this game. All I can think about is how awesome Caleb Hanie was in the preseason back in 2009 and 2010. We all know that went when he started games in 2011 after Cutler broke his thumb. That was a really shitty time.

Want something great? Eddy Pineiro nailed a 56-yard field goal!

Want something stupid? Matt Nagy is a dumbass and didn’t let Pineiro attempt another field goal later on from 58 yards. So, what is supposed to be a time for this guy to get all the kicks in as possible, Nagy decides to be a dumbass and let the offense try to convert a 4th and a mile.

Okay, now on to the serious stuff. It was reported during the game that Andrew Luck was retiring. I saw his first career game in 2012 at Soldier Field. This is such a sad story. The guy has been snake bit with countless injuries in the last four or five years. He couldn’t catch a break and it broke him mentally. Shame on the fans in Indianapolis for booing him off the field after this game. The fans calling him “weak” or whatever else don’t have the balls to put pads on and play one of the most dangerous games in sports. If someone doesn’t have the desire to do something they once cared about, they shouldn’t be doing it. Fans taking off their jerseys and booing him are ridiculous.

The Bears finish the preseason this Thursday against the Titans. Also, Matt Nagy is a fraud.
