Bears vs. Panthers

Noon on Sunday, like God intended.  We have an honest shot at this one if we can hurt/hassle Cam.

Bears vs. Ravens and Random Story

Well, the Bears travel to that hellhole called Baltimore and Mitch faces another pretty good defense.  Fortunately, the Ravens offense has been “Flaccoed” and can’t get out of their own way.  Right now the Bears are getting 6.5 from Vegas and I will come out and say we will cover.

On a side note, I was in Houston last week on business and as usual the talk turns eventually to football.  I always get mocked for my Bears leanings, however this time I had something different to say.  This time I was able to say that at least we have a slight, tiny ray of light to be excited about.  Unfortunately for me I had consumed a few cocktails and said it like this:

Well, we still suck but with tittiess on the team we at least have a ray of light coming through the eternal darkness.

The females who were involved in the conversation especially, and everyone else were pretty flummoxed until I showed them the 2nd best tweet of all time on my phone and they all laughed their asses off.   In fact, it brought the house down for a few minutes.

I really should start calling him something else in public, though.

Bears vs. Vikings

Well then!  The Mitchell Trubisky era begins tonight.

Bears vs. Green Bay Thursday Night

Tonight the Bears are on Thursday night football.  I think it also is streaming across Amazon too.  Dan is out of town and I am in Seahawk country but at least I will get this game on TV.

Wow that game last week was a doozy.  We got some good breaks on defense and special teams, despite that classic epic fail on the lost TD.  I definitely screamed at my TV for that.

I also heard from folks who went to the Bears vs. Steelers that the game was a sh*tshow on the side with the cheap seats and that they ran out of beer and water and the cash stations went dry.  Apparently planning for hot weather is beyond the capabilities of the Bears brain trust.  Oh well.  We don’t expect much up in the nosebleeds.

As for this game, what to hope for?  Our running back Howard seems pretty banged up, but keeps going out for more plays.  The secondary is better than last years’ but we have some injuries and we are facing Rogers so that’s always a bummer.

I am back to the core values of the Bears right now:

  • Smash our opponents. The Packers O line is pretty terrible right now and hopefully that lets us get a lot of hits on the QB.  Take em all and make em count
  • Try not to be a laughingstock.  I know we are playing Giraffe Neck Glennon just because we know this season is already lost but don’t ask him to do anything crazy like throw the ball to a wide receiver or anything.  Just run it or throw it to the running back or tight end and pray for no pick sixes

The seasons is already more promising than my miserable expectations.  We could have won game 1 and we won game 3.  Maybe we will be respectable tonight.  I’m hoping.

Bears vs. Steelers

Hmmm boy.  As of this writing the Bears are 7.5 point dogs at home.  If I were a betting man, I would take the Stillers.

Bears vs. Bucs

Well, today is the debut of one Tanner Gentry, and let the Tannerpalooza begin!

Bears vs. Falcons

Opening Day, and even though we have to suffer through watching the Bears, it is still football. Carl and I will be there at Soldier Field with 65k of our closest friends for today’s festivities.  God help us.
