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.

Open thread

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.

Zac Taylor turned into Lovie Smith, Marc Trestman, John Fox and Matt Nagy during the final drive in the Super Bowl.

Feel free to add Dan Quinn and Sean Payton in that group as well. I have realized in the last several years that there are idiotic head coaches all over the place. They do the same thing to their teams that the coaches do to the Bears.

2nd and 1 on the final drive for the Bengals and Burrow throws it? Same for 4th and 1. It’s like, you have three chances to get one yard. Do it, spike the ball and give yourself three more downs. The game just needed to be tied. All of the coaches I have named in this post have shown their acts of stupidity when it mattered the most. Sheesh.

I was cheering for the Bengals just because they have never won a Super Bowl in their franchise history. In addition, I never really cared for the Rams. So there’s that.

What do you think?

How did I not know that Lovie Lee Smith was an assistant for the Texans last year and now, the head coach?

February 8, 2022

It appears that other teams are just as stupid as the Bears. What’s next? Matt Nagy coaches the Lions?

Don’t say I told you so.

I listened to some of the press conference today. And…

February 1, 2022

I was pretty discouraged. Poles and Eberflus talked with “FIRE AND PASSION” and not in the good way.

I’m someone who is annoyed by people using a script to make speeches. Having bullet points on paper is fine. But reading off a script in these situations don’t seem genuine. And what made it worst was seeing Ted Phillips sit there. How is this guy even allowed into the building?

Then again, maybe this is optimism. The previous regimes didn’t seem to talk like this. So maybe I’ll be proven wrong?

The press conference in it’s entirety is posted below. Check it out if you want.

Matt Eberflus has been hired as head coach.

January 27, 2022

At least it wasn’t any the candidates that were proven to be abject failures (some that were interviewed by the way).

Will he actually make sense in the introductory press conference? Will he actually tell us that it’s unacceptable for defenses to not cover receivers? Will he be smart enough to call a run play on 2nd and inches rather than a pass play for an interception?

For the love of God, please let this guy drink the water at Halas Hall.

Ryan Poles is the new general manager of the Chicago Bears. Stupidity ensues if any of the following scenarios come true.

January 25, 2022

George loved this guy so much, that he actually went to O’Hare to pick him up. He even went to baggage claim to get his suitcase. What a lovely fellow!

The “experts” are claiming the Bears got the best option out there. That remains to be seen. And yet, the Bears are taking two steps back by bringing in shitty candidates to interview for head coach. Below are four candidates that have no business working for the Bears and if hired, Ryan Poles’ name will go up at the top of the page.

  1. Leslie Frazier – Read below this post for a diatribe on this guy. I don’t care if he wants to coach for free. He can go suck somewhere else.
  2. Dan Quinn – 28-3. Should I say more? Fine. I will. Yes, Tom Brady is the greatest. No doubt about it. However, when you basically give the game to him, you should never be allowed to coach again. He makes Matt Ryan throw with the team ready to put the game away. Instead of running the ball to do just that, he gave the Lombardi Trophy to the Patriots with no questions asked.
  3. Sean Payton – You see how Dan Quinn blew a lead in the Super Bowl when it was easily won? In 2019, the Saints had the NFC Championship in the bag against the Rams. All they had to do is run the ball the rest of the way to win. What happened instead? Pass! Yes, there was a no-call on the pass interference. But did it really have to get there? How stupid is this guy?
  4. Jim Caldwell – This guy has just sucked about everywhere he’s went. Enough.

How stupid are these coaches? Why isn’t common sense available? Why do these candidates continue to get interviews when there are others who haven’t even been considered that have a chance at actually being qualified? Why are other teams even bothering with these guys who have proven to be failures?

Can the Bears please do something creative? Can they please find someone who actually knows that when it’s 2nd and inches, to actually run a sneak? All I want is a coach with common sense?

After yesterday’s debacle, I’m certain Leslie Frazier is more than qualified to become the next head coach of the Bears.

In less than two minutes, the Bills gave up a 75-yard touchdown drive with ease along with letting the Chiefs drive 50 yards in 13 seconds to tie the game and force overtime. But it got worse from there. The Chiefs again marched down with ease in overtime for the game-winning touchdown on the first drive.

All of this came under the helm of Leslie Frazer.

“BUT HE’S AN ’85 BEAR, MY FRENDT!”

I could care less. Because of that, I’m certain the Bears are going to want him even more. It was only appropriate how the dots are being connected. Four years ago, Matt Nagy pissed all over the Chiefs in his last game as offensive coordinator. He caused that loss. The Bears hired him a week later. Now, Frazier fucks it up for the Bills against those same Chiefs. The Chiefs have at least made it the AFC Championship every year since Nagy left.

In those three scoring drives for the Chiefs, it screamed “Chicago Bears” by the secondary not defending receivers and leaving everyone wide open. I get it. Mahomes is God. He’s very fucking good. But they made it easy for even Rick Fucking Mirer to play quarterback in that situation. The receivers were WIDE FUCKING OPEN. That is all on the defensive coordinator.

Now, we await the impending press conference of Leslie Frazier becoming the head coach and telling everyone that he will “grow from this.” Fuck. Can we please bring in someone who doesn’t suck at their job?
