The Bears played a hell of a game on Sunday. We came up short, as teams who are not as talented typically do, but a few notes.
We never gave up. Fox has clearly instilled an attitude of never giving up and every guy is playing like their ass is on fire. I really like that. Once this team gets some talent, we will be good. Very good.
Our old friend James “Pickles” Clausen got waived. I think this has something to do with a dark overlord of the past.
It has pleased me to no end to see Trestman flailing in Baltimore and watching the Ravens suck is always great in general. I still have angst over the Ravens beating the 49ers in the Super Bowl and costing me $$$ but I digress as usual.
However, with Flacco getting his ACL exploded (there is a god) in the last game, I think Trestman was sniffing around Fales due to his past experiences. Fales was on the practice squad. Teams can cherry pick your practice squad at any time. So the Bears just cut Pickles and promoted Fales to be the backup, which is smart. See ya Jimmy.
Good job to Fox and Pace for protecting Fales. Fales isn’t the next Brady, but he can’t be worse than Clausen. Hopefully.
