By: larry Thu, 27 Jan 2011 16:38:35 +0000 Been coming to this blog after every game this year, always nice to have company in excitement. Well now I have company in misery too. The one good thing that came out of this is finding out that all my Packers fan friends are really good sports about winning. I feel good about 2011, naysayers be darned!

By: BrianL Tue, 25 Jan 2011 21:40:50 +0000 It makes sense Roy. I guess my biggest frustration now is all the crap about Jay “tapping out” He had a bad game, and he got hurt..Period. To question his “toughness” after a season in which he got hit over..and over..and over again, is insane. The offense will continue to improve, lets just hope they put some more pieces in place around him. Everybody moans about the recieving corps, I think the starting point has to be the O-line, and then find a WR in free agency. No matter what happens, I know just like this season, that next season, I will watch every game, cheer on the Bears, take the good with the bad, and hope for the best.

By: Roy Taylor Tue, 25 Jan 2011 21:06:56 +0000 Thanks everyone for chiming in. Time heals. It is what it is. And what it is, is, it wasn’t meant to be for the Bears. If that sentence made any sense at all.

By: gundy2 Tue, 25 Jan 2011 02:49:57 +0000 As a lifelong Packer fan I would like to say a few things. First, most knowledgeable Packers fans were not sure who was going to win that game yesterday. Whoever won the turnover battle had the best chance. I found a whole new level of respect for the Bears. I would give my left arm to have a Brian Urlacher on my team. Great, great player and a class act. Today, at work and ralking with relatives that are huge Bear fans, no gloeating or boasting. Just a healthy respect for the 2 best teams in the NFC. I think this rivalry will be intense for the next few years looking at these 2 teams. The way it should be. I’ll even let the Lions in the party. Congratulations on a great season. I certainly wouldn’t want some ignorant fan rubbing my nose in it if the tables had been turned. My hats off to the majority of Bear fans that show class. See you next year.

Todd Collins Should have been 3rd String
Chester Taylor Played Poorly in 2010
Brad Maynard Poor Punts in NFC Championship (Contract is up)
Rashied Davis Should not be on an NFL roster.
Pisa Tinoisamoa Injury Prone and Old
Desmond Clark Contract is up

I wonder if the Bears will re-sign the following:

Anthony Adams
Danieal Manning
Corey Graham
Nick Roach

Looking foward, I think the age of the defense could mean that last Sunday will be the last hurrah for the Urlacher era in Chicago.

By: Grizzly Bear 23 Mon, 24 Jan 2011 20:31:19 +0000 Why isn’t anybody questioning Chicago Bears offensive coordinator ” Mike Martz” decision making with regarding when to kick field goals and when to pull quarterback’s ? Martz denied the Bears 6 points (Golden Gould) in field goals as well as putting the entire team in total jeopardy by putting the 3rd string quarterback(Hanie) in the game with approximately 30 seconds left in the 3rd quarter making him the ONLY eligible quarterback left on the roster for the remainder of the game . Martz has been a head coach , and KNOWS that if he waited one more play, the 3rd quarter expires, and now he would have 3 quarterbacks left. What are his Non Championship incentives? I’d really like to see Martz man up and answer these questions.

I’d like to know who influenced Bears Coach Smith not to take a challenge on Packers 2nd touchdown when the runners knee looked to be down, on replay ,before passing into the end zone . With the ball on the goal line, anything could have happened penalties, fumbles , interception,forced to kick field goal instead. What was Coach Smith’s motivation not to challenge the touch down? or not to challenge offensive coordinator Martz decision ,TWICE, to not attempt a 47 yard field goal ? and a 52 yard field goal ? when the Bears have the Best kicker (GOOD AS GOLD) right here alone is a difference of a possible 13 point swing for the Bears and a dead even game. The interceptions would not have occurred because they were both thrown in desperation when Matt Forte and the Bears running game were working. TERRIBLE DECISION MAKING by MARTZ and SMITH LOST THIS GAME! Number 1 to blame MARTz Number 2 to blame Coach Smith Everyone that seriously watched or studied this game knew that the Bears Defense were LIGHTS OUT the second half. Hanie moved the ball well on the ground and given the opportunity to work the clock in what should have been a closer score and not being squeezed into playing desperately forcing interceptions, 4th down, deep in Chicago zone with time running down, the Bear’s could have won this game with competent coaching decisions . I say we can Blame the coaches not the team. Do U agree? Is Martz a traitor or
just stupid ? either way is unacceptable to this Bear Fan .


By: jdm Mon, 24 Jan 2011 16:00:03 +0000 And, can we stop the meathead comments about Cutler’s injury? I read in the Trib this morning it wasn’t even his call to come out. The coaches made the call. He looked hurt in the first half, and I pointed it out during the game. When he can’t step into his throws or roll out, he’s pretty much worthless. If anything, you should be questioning why Martz loves washed up old QBs instead of a decent young one. Had Hanie started the second half, there was plenty of time to put a decent plan in where they can be run heavy and be a threat to pass. By putting him in when they did, you were forced to pass on every down. Not exactly the best situation for a QB with zero NFL starts. Kudos to him for doing what he did.
