GameDay Thread: Bears vs. Saints

January 10, 2021 by

It’s the kind of day we don’t see often in our lives: The Bears having a playoff game.

Playoff football is back in Chicago.

January 6, 2021 by

For how long is yet to be determined. Certainly, none of us are optimistic. The Bears take on the Saints this Sunday. As we all have witnessed, the Bears haven’t really done well against them over the years. Sure, there was the playoff game in 2007 when the Bears beat them to get to the Super Bowl. Since? I think the Bears have only won one game and that was a regular season matchup the very next season. As you can see, no one is expecting the Bears to win this game.

Well, anything is possible. It’s football. “Any given Sunday.” Is that correct? The Bears could shock the entire football world and beat the Saints. Or, the status quo of being humiliated for everyone to see is also a possibility. I want the Bears to win. We all should. Four wins from being Super Bowl Champions. Easier said than done. I’ve waited about 30 years for this. I’m getting tired of waiting.

What do the Bears need to do? We all know what they can do to have a chance. But the bald-headed dipshit has refused to do it. That’s running the ball on 4th-and-1 instead of passing it. He didn’t do it this past Sunday and it cost the Bears a chance to win the game. And Chuck Pagano? He’s just as much of a fraud as the bald-headed dipshit. Has anyone in the media asked Pagano why he doesn’t tell the secondary to cover their receivers instead of wandering around? If they have asked that, I definitely didn’t hear about it. I’d ask him everyday if the cornerbacks and safeties can cover wide receivers instead of letting them run down the field with nobody else in sight.

Basically what I’m saying is, the Bears win more games if they stop putting the players in positions to fail. The bald-headed dipshit needs to actually run the ball more and stop doing pass plays on 4th-and-inches. Chuck Pagano needs to actually tell these cornerbacks and safeties to cover their receivers. If they are simply failing to do so, then bench those idiots for someone else who will. That’s why having backups are important. And if they don’t have any backups, sign some.

It’s just frustrating. We’ve seen these issues every year without any kind of resolution. It would be really nice if, for once, this team was actually great start-to-finish. Stop blowing leads. Stop giving up 95 yard drives late in games that end up being losses after leading by double digits. Stop letting linebackers chase after speedy wide receivers down the field (that end up being touchdowns). Why is this so difficult? It’s not often we see the Bears in the playoffs. Can they actually take advantage of this opportunity?

For once in my lifetime, please do all of this while winning the Super Bowl.

Sink or swim: Packers 35 Bears 16

January 3, 2021 by

What a bunch of fucking hacks the Bears are. While I’m glad they’re in the playoffs, it doesn’t discredit this PATHETIC performance today. The defense was horseshit. And if it wasn’t for a dropped touchdown pass by Marques Valdez-Scantling to begin the third, the Bears probably lose by 30 instead of 19. This defense has just been garbage all season.

With the Bears up 7-0, Duke Shelley thought it would be okay to hold a receiver (Davonte Adams?). It was fourth down and the pass by Rodgers was ten yards over the head to begin with. THE BALL WAS TEN YARDS OVER THE RECEIVER’S HEAD TO BEGIN WITH. Fuck. Why isn’t Chuck Pagano being held accountable for this tire fire? FUCK EVERYONE ON DEFENSE. All of them are responsible for being worthless against actual teams.

And this offense? Well, it was going okay, at best. That was until the glorious 4th-and-1 play in the fourth. The smart idea would be to give the ball to David Montgomery up the middle to extend the drive. Instead? Bill Lazor or even the bald-headed dipshit calls a pass play? And the Packers were all over it. Turnover on downs and the Packers promptly drive down the field with ease for a touchdown. And to add salt to the wound, Trubisky fulfilled his obligation of throwing one interception a game. The Packers again, drove down the field with ease for a touchdown.

Thanks to the Rams, the Bears are in the playoffs. This clown show goes on the road to play the Saints. Did I mention Chuck Pagano is a fucking idiot?

We all know what needs to be done today. Let’s see if the Bears (or Rams) can do it.

Darvish and Caratini have been traded …who’s next?

December 29, 2020 by

I’ve been mostly distracted since the gig economy was disrupted 9 months ago. To be honest, it was hard (for me) to take this past season seriously.

Darvish was great this year in a 60-game season. Caratini was more than solid, and there are rumors that Contreras may be traded (?).

Salary dump? Tanking 2021 to build the farm and bounce back in 2022?

My frendts…what do you think?

A tale of two halves: Bears 41 Jaguars 17

December 27, 2020 by

Let’s be honest, the Bears barely escaped the first half of this game. Mike Glennon seemed to have been on his way to a career game because the defense was again, playing like shit. Trubisky fulfilled his weekly obligation of throwing an interception in the end zone. But then Mike Glennon reminded himself he was Mike Glennon and threw an interception right after that set up a field goal. The second half arrived and the Bears finally woke up. It wasn’t easy early on, but they did their job.

The offense played decent and the defense locked it down in the second half with big plays. If they played any other team, we’re probably discussing a disaster.

The Packers are up next week. The scenario to the playoffs is simple: They can win and get in or pray the Cardinals lose to the Rams.

Yesterday, the Bears received a gift from the 49ers when they beat the Cardinals. And go figure, Robbie Gould did everything he could to fuck it up for the Bears by missing an extra point and two field goals. Regardless, the 49ers pulled it out and it gives the Bears more life to get into the playoffs. We’ll see what happens.

Sweating it out: Bears 33 Vikings 27

December 20, 2020 by

Why does this have to be so difficult? When the offense sucks, the defense plays adequately. When the offense finally finds life, the defense turns to shit. Fuck Chuck Pagano. Thankfully, the Vikings ran out of time and the Bears held on to win.

Mitch threw one really awful pass and it was probably the only one of the game. Late in the game, instead of throwing it away due to no one being open in the end zone, he tried to throw it to J.P Holtz. Unfortunately, it was both a yard short and a yard too low for Holtz to get it. But the rest of the game? Fucking money. It’s just a shame he was put in a position to fail throughout these four years by incompetent coaches. Finally, the offense put together a full game where they scored on nearly every position. THIS IS WHAT AN OFFENSE IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE.

The defense was fucking awful as mentioned above. On nearly every series they were on, they gave up points. It was BAD. There were a couple of stupid penalties that could have ended drives. Yes, they made stops on the last two drives to win the game. But it should have never reached that point to begin with.

As I type this recap, the Cardinals are currently playing. The Bears will either be tied for that last spot or remain a game out. Two games left. The Jaguars are up next and we all know that won’t be easy.

The same thing goes this week as it was last week. Win to stay in the race or lose and it’s over.

Too late: Bears 36 Texans 7

December 13, 2020 by

Wow. If only the Bears had won last week, they would have been tied for the last playoff spot. But since they didn’t, getting to the playoffs is going to be much more difficult.

This game shocked all of us. None of us expected the Bears to win this game. The Bears sacked Watson six times and the offense scored four touchdowns in the first half. Trubisky was amazing in the first half. Of course, the bald-headed dipshit was trying to get cute in the second half by putting him in a position to fail (like he has since he arrived in Chicago three years ago).

The second half was awful for the offense. There was a series where it was 2nd and 3 and what does the bald-headed dipshit do? Two straight pass plays resulting in a punt. Instead of just killing the clock by running the ball to close out the final quarter and change, pass plays galore. Even when they kick ass in total, they still try everything they can to fuck it up. There I was thinking to myself “they could still blow this.” That’s the Bears for you. If I am the players, I revolt in the huddle and run the ball instead in those situations. Show that bald-headed dipshit that he isn’t going to ruin their future careers by running plays they know don’t work.

The Bears are one game out of the last playoff spot with three remaining. Even though the Vikings lost today, they still hold the tie-breaker as we speak. Since we know the Bears aren’t beating the Packers the last game of the season, they must win the next two games against the Vikings and Jaguars respectively to still have a chance. I still feel, however, that we are probably going to look at the game the Bears blew against the Lions as the difference between making the playoffs and staying home when the season finishes up.
