Comments on: Did I just see what I just saw? Chicago Bears History Blog by Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:25:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: Higgins Mon, 13 Oct 2008 20:29:19 +0000 Did someone send out the picture of Jason Elam to every sports newspaper/website in the country and tell them to put it on the front page? It was on ESPN’s website, SI’s website, Fox Sports’ website, the Tribune’s front page, and then I go to the Bears’ homepage, there it is! I hate this Monday. Why did our defense look pathetic against the Falcons? I hate to say this, because we should have won with that final drive, but they beat our ass all game long. I have said it before, and will again. This is going to be a long season because our football team is set up for exactly this “Down to the wire” type of game.

Neither Thayer nor Joniak excpressed any surprise at distance of the last kick when it unfolded. At least as I heard it.

I really just don’t think he wants to play. That jaw needs to be covered up by a football helmet. It reminds me of slingblade. Some people call it a kaiserblade. Um hun.

By: Higgins Mon, 13 Oct 2008 14:01:58 +0000 Earlier this week I had said Charles Tillman had a good chance at the Pro Bowl this season. Scratch that. These are my thoughts about the Falcons game.
1) It seemed like Peanut made a hundred tackles yesterday, but only because the guy he was supposed to be covering kept catching the ball.
2) I wish Tommie Harris had been suspended two games.
3) Another game goes by and we don’t register a sack. Absolutely no pressure on the quarterback what-so-ever.
4) Squib kick? wtf?!
5) Who in the hell is Hamilton? When did he make the team?
6) I hope they don’t play like this next week when we play the Vikings with first place in the division on the line.

Anyone remember last year against Minnesota at home when Adrian Peterson already had over 200 yards rushing (and basically burned the Bears all day) yet Lovie STILL elected to kick to him during overtime and put them in position to win the game? I can’t believe that crap

By: Rob Mon, 13 Oct 2008 03:18:27 +0000 Keep in mind, the Bears are 3-3 and tied for the lead in their division, with a weak schedule.

This team should make the playoffs.

No time to be gloom and doom.

By: W.T.F.? Mon, 13 Oct 2008 01:46:16 +0000 Why so many 3rd & long conversions from a rookie QB? The Bears were lucky to even have the chance after the missed chip shot. Secondary is really missing in action.

Riduculous outcome and completely preventable. Like LJ points out, it really seems that it was Hamilton who was completely out of position on the last play. How can he not either jam the receiver off the line or cover deep to help the saftey? Instead, he bit; let the deep route past and covered the 10 yard out running back. What a Bozo!
The squib kick is just plain stupid.

By: LJ Mon, 13 Oct 2008 00:57:52 +0000 I have 3 things about that last play

1) Replaying that last play on my TiVo took longer then 6 seconds
2) Why didn’t one of the linebackers stay at the line and blitz, because the d-line had no sacks
3) The last no brain play goes to Hamilton not Brown who was playing the middle and had to bail out the light post Hamilton who watched Jenkins run by him

1.) The Cubs
2.) The Bears
3.) Obama!

By: George Sun, 12 Oct 2008 23:08:51 +0000 The answer here is quite clear. Football coaches and players fit the stereotype. They are dumb people who cannot manage a clock, can’t figure out how much time is run out after a kick off deep and can’t weigh odds to save their souls. Runners don’t run out of bounds to stop the clock, defensive backs can’t figure out to push someone in rather than out to keep a clock running. All brawn, no brains or even common sense.

I’d fire Lovie but you would just get some other moron who also can’t manage 11 seconds to an obvious victory.
