I'd like to clarify, I did not call him a nice guy. I called him a ******.

why are you so mad when i support your team?
i just pointed out what they needed to improve in in order to beat the saints, and you then call me out on mistyping, i dont get it.
It's cool dude. You really don't bother me with what you say, none of it is incorrect, it just takes me 15 minutes to figure out what you're actually trying to say outside of your mangled language and incoherant phrases.

ladies and gents... can we stop with the *********** fights? There is a HUGE game this Sunday...Sunday's too far away. I've got two finals in between now and then. Something I think has to be said is the Bears must have a sense of urgency, if they lose on Sunday the whole season is for naught. They need to want it more than the Saints, nothing less than Superbowl appearance will make an impact for this city or team. It would be two steps backwards and we'd be at last year again. The Bears must want it more, it's Superbowl or bust. The Saints should be happy to have gotten this far, but the Bears need this win for the state of their franchise.

I think I am going to call a replacement for tennis league on sunday, that way I can watch all the game 8)

And I agree, to me, its SuperBowl or nothing. I mean its nice to have your team in the playoffs, but if you dont even get to the big stage the good season is for nothing and I wouldnt mind the higher pick in that case.

Alright guys you gotta win sunday, represent the NFC North.

I actually don't think you'll have much of a problem with the Saints, their offense struggles mightily against teams with athletic linebackers, and defenses which force turnovers. See the Baltimore game (where they got annihilated 35-7 before the Ravens showed mercy)

If the Redskins with the last ranked Defense in the nfc can hold the Saints offense to 10 points in the Superdome imagine what the Bears can do? Even though the Bears Defense gave up 24 pts vs Seattle,the Seahawks were 0 for 7 on plays that were 3rd and 3 or less. The Bears D makes all the stops when it counts.

Also Rex Grossman will tear up the New Orleans secondary, Josh Bullocks and Fred Thomas are horrible and always give up huge plays.

Bears will roll in this one.

You guys crack me up. I've been away from the board for a shorter time, but I come back and there's 4+ pages of comedy gould--as well as good football insight--that I have to go through, chuckling and nodding the whole way. So many topics have been brought up, addressed (and sometimes answered), that I don't have anything dramatic to say, so I'll just share a few thoughts.

1) Gould doesn't have a "big" leg. So what? Butt-head had a somewhat "big" leg, but what made him one of the greatest Bears kickers of all time was his overall performance and reliability--and as the Bears have not asked Gould to kick 50+ yard field goals this year, all we can say is that he is performing very well overall, and is very reliable. Arguing anything else is counterfactual (which is stupid when you're talking about 'historical' events) and just plain sour grapes homerism. While there are kickers I'd rather have than Gould, he's a frickin' second-year kicker!!!! He's going to get stronger, and better, as time goes on. And that's very comforting, considering how good he's been this year.

2) Mark Anderson is going to be a huge asset to the team for a while... not just because his sack totals and his (usually) very good pursuit angles, but because he's getting paid 2nd-day pick salary. The Bears can afford to keep someone like Wale or Brown even if Anderson's play makes him the starter, simply because Anderson is small paycheck for the next couple years.

3) Briggs... I think what happens with Lance ultimately will depend on how the Bears do for the rest of the year. A good performance will leave a good taste in everyone's mouth, and will make the contract talks less acrimonious. I think regardless of what numbers get thrown around, Briggs gets the franchise tag. No, he won't like it. But if this season ends well, he might be willing to take the money for a chance to ride with a winner again. Otherwise, he'll be traded, likely for a pick.

4) Graham won't be there for the Bears to take. Even if Farve doesn't come back, the Cheez-its want/need a veteran TE upgrade over Bubba. Gonzales would have been a savior for them; Graham will do.

5) TJ... I think it's becoming more and more evident that Cedric is able to perform at a very high level in games. Maybe he isn't at this moment as good a pass blocker as TJ. I think the Bears are willing to take that risk. And has anyone noticed that the more Benson is integrated into the game plan, the less noise he makes? Compare Cedric's attitude during camp when he was anointed the starter, to his attitude after his injury, to his attitude/performance lately. Yeah, he's young and selfish and not the team guy/warrior that TJ is. But neither was Marshall Faulk when he was at Indy, and neither was TJ when he was in AZ or even Tampa. Cedric has a lot of upside, and that will make TJ an easy decision. Almost too easy, as whoever gets him is going to get a great deal.

6) Chris Harris hits like a ton of bricks. But like bricks, he does not wrap up. That must change for me to take him out of my dog house.

7) Reggie Bush didn't do a whole lot last week after he got demolished early in the game (by a DB!). RMJ, Harris, and even Peanut can and will light up Bush if given the chance, though honestly, I think it's going to be Brown or Anderson who is going to put the hurt on Bush early, if NO tries to run an outlet or a side screen to Bush. Bush is not who worries me about NO... it's Brees and McCalister who worry me about NO.

8) I think the Bears DBs match up very well against NO receivers. I think the interior line and our glorious MLB got exposed a bit by the spread formations Seattle ran out of, and if NO does the same thing, we might be in for a long day. Brees is a very accurate passer, so we can't count on any Matt "We're going to take the ball... and win!" Hasselbeck-like bad throws... Brees has to be pressured and/or his receivers have to be blanketed. I'm not confident about the former, but the latter is a good bet.

That said, I see a lot of yards piled up against the Bears, with some critical stops and phenomenal turnovers going the Bears' way.

*whew* that was a lot of typing. I'm spent.

Prediction tomorrow. I have to crunch some numbers (otherwise known as drink a beer and fart) before I can make a definitive call.

By the way, let me add two truisms that I have said before and I will continue to say:

1) Devin Hester is a loaded gun, safety off. Often he's going to go off and blow a team away... but sometimes he's going to blow up in our faces.

2) Hillenmyer is a liability in coverage; (most of the time) he cannot cover tight ends. His good play against Jerramy (I have two Rs in my name just in case I drop one) Stevens notwithstanding, he does not impress me, and looks much better because of the play of Urlacher, Briggs, and whichever DE is lined up in front of him.

Hurricane Ditka
01-18-2007, 08:13 PM
Hillenmeyer is better than he gets credit for. He's been a solid contributor on the defense during his tenure in Chicago. Although he's great for a two-down player, which is why it's important to draft a replacement for Briggs.

also... what do you guys think about Scott's second round pick? Jeff Samardzija... that would be interesting... I'd personally love to see him on the Bears, and i think he would be a great compliment to Berrian and Bradley, and could possibly take over for Moose once he's put out to pasture.. I really only like the pick because then he could play for my two favorite pro teams though.

I'm not sure too many people give Hillenmeyer any credit, to be honest. He's an OK player--I'm not saying he isn't--but in coverage, he does not have the physical tools to prevent TEs from catching the ball.

I don't think he qualifies as "great" by any stretch of the imagination. Colvin was a much better SAM and I would hesitate to call him "great."

I think the point of locking Hillenmeyer up was not his 'stellar' play, but because he's a versatile back-up and a known, relatively dependable quantity in a very solid LB corps. But of the 11 guys who started game 4 (or whenever it was that Manning took over FS), Hillenmeyer was by far the weakest link. Come to think of it, I'd say that he still is the weakest link, though if Chris Harris can't improve his tackling, he would get that designation.

If the weather is anything like how it was at Giants stadium when the Saints clobbered us, your chances are very good. Brees couldn't handle the windy environment and had a horrible game. They won because they ran all over our face, but thats a different topic of discussion.

Whats the forecast for the game? Do the winds swirl at Soldier field or is it more of a linear wind? Im sure Payton wants to spread you guys out, but if he can't do that, it makes the Saints chances worse.

also the one ESPN pick that went to the Bears was their computer "Accuscore" that program or w/e the hell it is is surprisingly accurate o nthe season it had a correction percentage of 75% against the spread.Clayton picked the Bears too.

Game in less than 2 days. Good luck guys, it should be a good one.

Oh so you're trying to suck up to us now huh. :roll: :lol:

Thanks diabsoule, good luck to you guys as well. Not good luck in a winning sense, but good luck on staying healthy and stuff like that. :D

You're right, I am trying to suck up! :P

My only concern for you guys on Sunday is if your team is going to sleep since it's winter and Bears hibernate in winter.

Don't worry, the Bears is just a nickname, they're not real Bears... except maybe Staley, he is one crazy **********ker.

Now looking at this:

I know its a highlight video, and he has struggled this year. But to me that video shows just what he can be, with good coaching, and could probably get better.

A few more stats that favor the Bears.

The Saints are 0-4 against teams with top 10 Defenses.

The Saints have a problem with following up emotional victories with letdown games, after their emotional monday night victory over the Falcons they lost to Carolina, after beating, after beating the Eagles in the regular season they got dominated by Baltimore, after a sunday night win over thw Cowboys they lost to the Redskins at home.

My prediction for the game is Bears 34 - Saints 20

Pretty optimistic don't you think? I don't think either team will win by more than 10, and more likely a touchdown.

I don't see the Bears scoring 34 points.

I don't think it's too out of the ordinary the Saints have a pretty big weakness in the secondary, Fred Thomas and Mike McKenzie lack foot speed, and Thomas in particular has a tendency to give up huge pass plays.

their safeties aren't too great as well.

If Turner let's Rex chuck the deep ball like he did back in Weeks 1-4 to Berrian, Davis. I could see them putting up a lot of points, if they get good protection.

Isn't that something, especially when both Manning and Brady have played bad in the playoffs so far. But no one seems to talk about that.

Also, Brees has been known to have bad games this year, so it's not a guarantee that he'll be lights out against us. I'm pretty confident that he'll have a good game but anything can happen in the Windy City!

"Bear weather" is more wishful thinking than reality.

That said, snow and cold favro the Bears more than they favor the Saints, especially with the problems the Bears have been having on defense lately (in short, a slippery field surface means that NO won't be hitting the edges much, allowing the Bears to concentrate on the middle, where they've been soft lately).

Or that might be my wishful thinking.

Still, I'm going to take the Bears, 27-21.

Brees has just as bit of a shot to screw up as Rex does. Also, if I was a Saints fan, I'd be worried about Jones/Benson just as much as we worry about McAllister/Bush. Oh and they might want to worry about Hester as well.

Good luck fellas. It seems like you're the underdog in this game, so go out and prove everyone wrong. You've got not only a whole city behind you, but also a crowd of 65,000 people who'll try and help guide you to victory.

So go out and win this game. And hopefully we can start booking our tickets to Miami in 2 weeks. It's been 20 years for us, and never for the Saints. So let's make their drought last another year.

We're already proud of what you've done this season; but don't be satisfied by a division title and a 2nd round victory. The Super Bowl is the ultimate goal, so take care of business this afternoon.

Love,

Wow.

That is the way the Bears need to play. Aside from that 8 minutes or so from the last minute of the first half through midway through the 3rd quarter, I could not have asked for anything more.

I was saying all week that the play calling should look like Benson-Benson-Jones-Benson-Benson-Benson-Jones-Jones-Berrian-Benson-Benson-Jones-Benson-Jones-Clark,
and that's pretty much what it was. 196 yards rushing? Zero sacks? Defense stifled McAllister?? That's all I could ever ask for.

Rinse and repeat in XLI and the Bears will win, no matter who the opponent is. The Bears were clearly the better team in the early game, and the way they stepped things up this week, I think that they'll be VERY tough in Miami.

Though to the oddsmakers and prognosticators, I ask you to please call the Bears the underdogs. They're eating that up, and it makes me look good when I pick them to win on the Chicagosports.com pool (I lost my #1 ranking last week and dropped to #5, 2 points off the lead... but I should be back in first now... and that $200 gift certificate will buy me the Walter Payton jersey I've been wanting).

bearsfan_51
01-21-2007, 06:10 PM
I'm guessing the Bears will be at least 4-5 point underdogs. I don't think there is any question of that. If it was San Diego I could see it as high as 10-12 but New England isn't exactely dominating.

Awesome performance..

Truly a team win..

Maynard 4 of his 7 punts inside the 20?? HUGE.

Special teams coverage were awesome unlike last week.. Gould was money again.

This game was clearly won in the trenches.. Our DLine finally showed up.. And the OL was dominant.

Mark Anderson was ridiculously good today.. He has been making pro bowl Tackles look bad all year.. Jamal Brown was the victim of his abuse today.

Anyone hear Lovie in his press conference?

That loser Gene Wojciechowski who bashed the Bears all week asked a question about the Bears not getting picked to win this game.. And Lovie interupts him mid question and says " Gene, you picked the Saints to win too. " Then Gene pauses for a few seconds after realizing he looks like an idiot and finishes out the question.. :lol: :lol:

Rivera definitely opened up the defensive playbook today, tons of new blitzing packages..

It's really a shame Mike Brown and Tommie won't be able to play in the Superbowl.. Both really deserve to be apart of the SB expierence.

Alright, after today's effort, I think Jones is gonna stick around for a while. I don't think he'll start next year, but splitting the carries 60-40 Benson, and our rushing attack can generate 2,000+ yards. We should have stuck to the run like this all season.

I disagree, but that's mostly because I think the Colts are a much more talented team than the Pats. I'm not sure we have the horses (no pun intended) to hang with the Colts. The Pats I think we match up pretty even with.

Tillman-Vasher on Wayne-Harrison gives me chills.

I agree, while Benson hasnt shown the big run ability as much as Jones has at points, he is more consistant IMO on getting yards. He is a beast! And it takes more than 1 guy to take him down, while Jones most of the time goes down on contact. Benson will be great

I hope some superbowl jewlery will add incentive for Briggs and Jones to stay, and even if we don't win, then hopefully comming so close adds more hunger and they want to stay to have one more crack at it.

Alright as I do so often, I'm officially changing my tune on the issue of Thomas Jones. I think he'll stick with this team next year and beyond. How ever I still maintain that Benson will be named the starter come training camp, as we saw today when both get 15+ carries good things will happen. Benson's ypc isn't as high, but the bulk of his carries came when we had nothing going offensively and couldn't block the Saint's D-Line to save their lives. We should have been using Jones and Benson like this earlier. Defensive line isn't a concern anymore if you ask me. Scott can be resigned, and our 5 deep rotation of Harris, Tank, Scott, Idonije, and Double D Dusty is pretty damn good. Our biggest focus in the draft should be the offensive line. I'd like to see Justin Blalock in the first, and Doug Free in the third. With a linebacker like Justin Durant, Earl Everrett, Jon Beason, or Justin Durant in the second, unless Briggs decides to sticks around to play for a winner, in that case the safety from Arizona, Mike Johnson, or another safety in the second.

This is going to be a real chess match between two great coaches that know each other like the back of their hands. I don't think you say either team has an advantage in this game.

We are the Bears Shufflin' Crew
Shufflin' on down, doin' it for you.
We're so bad we know we're good.
Blowin' your mind like we knew we would.
You know we're just struttin' for fun
Struttin' our stuff for everyone.
We're not here to start no trouble.
We're just here to do the Super Bowl Shuffle.
Walter Payton
Well, they call me Sweetness,
And I like to dance.
Runnin' the ball is like makin' romance.
We've had the goal since training camp
To give Chicago a Super Bowl chance.
And we're not doin' this
Because we're greedy.
The Bears are doin' it to feed the needy.
We didn't come here to look for trouble,
We just came here to do
The Super Bowl Shuffle.
Willie Gault
This is Speedy Willie, and I'm world class.
I like runnin' but i love to get the pass.
I practice all day and dance all night,
I got to get ready for the Sunday fight.
Now I'm as smooth as a chocolate swirl,
I dance a little funky, so watch me girl.
There's not one here that does it like me,
My Super Bowl Shuffle will set you free.
Mike Singletary
I'm Samurai Mike I stop'em cold.
Part of the defense, big and bold,
I've been jammin' for quite a while,
Doin' what's right and settin' the style,
Give me a chance, I'll rock you good,
Nobody messin' in my neighborhood.
I didn't come here lookin' for trouble,
I just came to do The Super Bowl Shuffle

Jim McMahon
I'm the punky QB, known as McMahon.
When I hit the turf, I've got no plan.
I just throw my body all over the field.
I can't dance, but I can throw the pill.
I motivate the cats, I like to tease.
I play so cool, I aim to please.
That's why you all got here on the double
To catch me doin' the Super Bowl Shuffle.
Otis Wilson
I'm mama's boy Otis, one of a kind.
The ladies all love me
For my body and my mind.
I'm slick on the floor as I can be
But ain't no sucker gonna get past me.
Some guys are jealous
Of my style and class,
That's why some end up on their -,
I didn't come here lookin' for trouble,
I just get down to The Super Bowl Shuffle.
Steve Fuller
They say Jimbo is our man.
If Jimmy can't do it, I sure can.
This is Steve, and it's no wonder
I run like lightnin', pass like thunder.
So bring on Atlanta, bring on Dallas,
This is for Mike and Papa Bear Halas.
I'm not here to feather his ruffle,
I just came here to do
The Super Bowl Shuffle.
Mike Richardson
I'm L.A. Mike, and I play it cool.
They don't sneak by me 'cause I'm no fool.
I fly on the field and get on down.
Everybody knows I don't mess around.
I can break'em, shake'em,
Any time of day.
I like to steal it and make 'em pay,
So please don't cry to beat my hustle
'Cause I'm just here to do
The Super Bowl Shuffle.

Richard Dent
The sackman's comin', I'm your man Dent.
if the quarterback's slow,
He's gonna get bent.
We stop the run, we stop the pass,
I like to dump guys on their -.
We love to play for the world's best fans,
You better start makin'
Your Super Bowl plans.
But don't get ready or go to any trouble
Unless you practice
The Super Bowl Shuffle.
Gary Fencik
It's Gary here, and I'm Mr.Clean.
They call me "hit man,"
Don't know what they mean.
They throw it long and watch me run,
I'm on my man, one-on-one.
Buddy's guys cover it down to the bone,
That's why they call us the 46 zone.
Come on everybody let's scream and yell,
We're goin' to do the Shuffle,
Then ring your bell.
William Perry
You're lookin' at the Fridge,
I'm the rookie.
I may be large, but I'm no dumb cookie.
You've seen me hit, you've seen me run,
When I get the pass, we'll have more fun.
I can dance, you will see
The others, they all learn from me.
I don't come here lookin' for trouble,
I just came here to do
The Super Bowl Shuffle.

I don't see how the game can be closer than the Pats Superbowl's. Unless it goes to overtime, which would be insane.

Anyway, I do truely think the Colts have the advantage. They're such an incredibly talented team and with their run defense playing well it becomes an incredibly staggering feat. Not to say the Bears don't have the ability, but they are the underdog and they definately should be.

I can't wait to see this SB. This is gonna be a good one that I can enjoy. Its nice to see the Bears in the SB, its been a long time.

I don't know though, I hate going with popular opinion, but I don't know if they can stop Peyton. Peyton knows the Cover 2 like the back of his hand, he practices against it every day. And if I had to bet between Peyton and Grossman, I choose Peyton.

The defense is really gonna have to do some magic in this game. The pass rush will determine if the Bears can win it. I think if they can get pressure on Peyton, this game is very winnable. But if not, Peyton is gonna put up another 30+ pt performance.

I think Lovie should dial up a lot of blitzes for this game. Roll the dice.

bearsfan_51
01-22-2007, 08:07 AM
It's fine. I'm highly skeptical if we can win this game either. Two weeks to prepare against a defense that he already knows really well is more than enough time for Manning. If the Colts pull out early, I wonder if Grossman has the ability to keep up. We're going to have to set the tempo real early and slow the game down, if not it could get out of hand.

On the plus side, I think we can shut their run down easily so long as we don't have to pull our defense back too much. Their sideline to sideline speed doesn't have anything on ours and as the Saints learned, if you don't run the ball, you don't win.

Top 3

Strengths:
1.) Defense playing proactively again, instead of reactive
2.) Run offense
3.) O-line

Weaknesses:
1.) Safeties (Bush's td was all Harris' and Daniel Manning's fault--horrible angles)
2.) WR's--Moose was nonexistent
3.) Daniel Manning again--just playing very poor ball recently.

I'm starting to really not like Danieal Manning. Harris is what he is, with his limited physical skills he'll never be great, but I expect more from Manning. He hasn't had a good game since the start of the season.

By the way, I repeat, Moose was open, watch the tape. The fact that Grossman threw a couple of terrible balls in his direction is not his fault. And I don't remember him dropping one catchable ball, let alone multiple ones, but I could be wrong.

He dropped a couple, and yes Rex did make some poor throws.

Two thoughts about Rex: 1.) He played within himself. He didn't have a great game, but he didn't try to create when he knew it wasn't there. So I give him props for that. 2.) I'm ready to ditch this guy after his contract expires. He's not reliable by any stretch of imagination.


What are the odds Tank Johnson has the following comment: "I mean it's not like the Ice Bar. It's just South Beach. I'll be fine." 95%? 120%? This could be great.

:lol:

You're joking right? Moose got seperation on numerous occasions. Too bad our QB has the accuracy of a gorilla on acid.

Moose dropped from what I saw one ball, but still, we need more from him. Sure Rex didn't throw it his way, but when he does he needs to catch it when it's in his hands.

I'm harder on him than I should be but after last weeks drop that caused an INT, every drop from here on out pisses me off more and more. :lol:

And about the sign, there are always some bad apples amongst each fan base, and sadly this is one of them; but compared to Philly and Oakland, we aren't ****. I was tired of the entire Katrina thing this week too, but that's out of line.

If we run the ball well and stop the run, I think we win. If we don't, we lose. It's that simple IMO. Well ok, not "that simple" but you get the picture. Here are my keys.

1) Run the ball EFFECTIVELY for 4 quarters

2) Ditto for stopping the run

3) Limit TO's (I have to expect we'll have some in this game, it's just how the game is) and force turnovers

4) Limit our dumb penalties (ie false starts and stuff like that)

5) Maynard needs another game like he had against the Saints

6) Rex needs to play not only smart, but effective. If he has a game like he did against Seattle (minus the fumble), I think we're in good shape

7) No big plays

8) Get pressure on Peyton with our pass rush

I know it's a lot of keys, but I also think Indy has a lot of keys as well to them beating us.

Also, we're going to hear about Tank tomorrow, and from what I've heard, it could go either way. I hope he gets to play because we could really use him. No Tommie and no Tank could spell bad news in 2 weeks.

Despite a Monday Chicago Tribune report to the contrary, Bears DT Tank Johnson may not be allowed to travel to the Super Bowl for violating his probation.
Johnson was recently arrested after the police raided at his home turned up six guns and more than 500 rounds of ammunition. Johnson will learn his fate Tuesday as to whether he can leave the state. It's the second time Johnson has violated his probation from a previous arrest.


Thats what.

My 2 cents on it: They said its a judge that decides, I have no idea why, it should be the probation officer, when I was on probation, my PO was a *****, I wasn't allowed to leave the county and she granted me no excuses, I had to miss 2 big soccer games my senior year of high school. While another one of my friends who was on probation was allowed to go to Mexico for vacation. It all depends on the officer.

There was never much of a debate in my mind. Going into the playoffs I had them ranked.

1)Chicago
2A)Seattle
2B)Dallas
3)New Orleans
4)Philly
5)Who cares?

Judging by the near loss to Seattle and the thumping of New Orleans I think I was correct. All the talk about the Superbowl representative coming out of the New Orleans-Philly game was just media hype, Sean Salisbury idiocy, and a general lack of football knowledge. Football is not complicated. You run the ball, you stop the run, you don't cause turnovers, you create turnovers, you win on special teams. If you can't do at least 4 of those 5 things, you aren't a very good football team.

Guess what? The Saints aren't that good of a football team. I hate to say it like that becaue their fans have been nothing but classy since the loss, but it did not suprise me in the least bit. Gimmicky offense will get figured out eventually.

And Skip Bayless compared Sean Payton to Bill Walsh. I was on the Payton bandwagon since week 1, but that almost made me throw up in my mouth.

I completely agree. With another good offseason or two, the Saints can be a very good team. But they were overhyped mainly because of katrina. People forgot that they were a 10-6 team and just got a boner for their "sexy O."

Hey, was the pick play with Reggie Bush that got them a touchdown legal? I thought it was an illegal play in the NFL? And if it was, what would the flag be?

Colston never touched Harris, so I think that's a legal play. Either way though, Manning cannot let Bush get by on that. Just corner him to the sidelines, ugh that was very bad.

Why Reggie Bush didn't get a flag for taunting is beyond me, but if he doesn't get fined, I'll be really disappointed.

And I think the problem with Danieal Manning is that he doesn't have Mike Brown back there with him making him play better. Which is why I think Safety is a day-one draft priority regardless of what happens with Briggs. We need someone who can be a good replacement for Brown and push Manning to play smarter.

Bush is not going to get fined.

The play wasn't illegal.

It was almost a pick, but wasn't.

Chris Harris just took a ridiculous bad angle on the play and made it look like it was more of a pick than it really was.

The play was designed very well and Bush did the rest with his freakish abilities.

I'm starting to really not like Danieal Manning. Harris is what he is, with his limited physical skills he'll never be great, but I expect more from Manning. He hasn't had a good game since the start of the season.

By the way, I repeat, Moose was open, watch the tape. The fact that Grossman threw a couple of terrible balls in his direction is not his fault. And I don't remember him dropping one catchable ball, let alone multiple ones, but I could be wrong.

Manning has over persued so many plays its not even funny. When is he going to learn how to take angles? Also he's dropped a number of easy int's as well. I know its his rookie season but geez...lets get it together.

I will say even though our defense has looked well and Brown will be back next year I don't see it out of the ordinary for us to get a top end Safety in this upcoming draft. I'm hoping Michael Griffin, Reggie Nelson, or Merriweather in the 2nd rnd. I was hoping for Robert Meachem but something tells me he'll be long gone before this pick.

BrYan Johnson is done. He's currently suing the team for wrongful termination. If he's still on the roster it's only because of league technicalities.

And to answer your question, no, it won't happen. McKie just signed a longterm extension, he's the fullback of the future and J.D Runnels is the young backup.

bigbluedefense
01-23-2007, 09:16 AM
I was thinking about it, and this defense has a better chance aganist Indy than I initially thought.

That quick cover 2 shell is fast enough to handle the stretch ability of Indy's 3 WR set, and theyre a pass first team so that plays right into the Bear's hands.

Also, they have small RBs and theyre best run play is the stretch play. Chicago will have that on lock.

You also have the speed to cover the TE and RB out of the backfield, and the pass rush to get at Peyton.

Personnell wise, you guys have a very good chance.

The only problem is Peyton never seems to have a hard time against the 4-3, so who knows. But maybe the Bears can really do this. Im starting to think that they can. A turnover early, establish the run game, the Bears can establish momentum in this game and maybe take it.

Well we'd blown out 4 of the 5 teams we'd faced up to that game, so I can see why the media hyped us up like they did.

It was the flavor of the month in the NFC this season, yet we just stood our ground and kept on winning games. And I just hope that we can knock off the Colts and prove all the people wrong who called us overrated, who called us a flawed 13-3 team, who said we weren't going anywhere, etc...Well, we're in the SB after drubbing the media cinderellas at home on Sunday.

Actually we were hyped all the way to the Miami game. Until then, a lot of 'experts' were saying that 16-0 was 'possible if not likely'. After that game though, we went from the team that could go 16-0 to completely invisible to the media.

Any thoughts about Lovie's contract situation.

Rumors are flying that Jerry Jones wants Lovie at the tune of $5-7 million. I would hate to see Lovie go but if the front office tries to short change him I would rather see him get the money he deserves. I would also consider boycotting this team in protest...for a couple of days.

I'd ship Lovie off for a first round pick in a heartbeat. I think the difference between him and Rivera is negligible.

That being said, I think this is all jargon. They will and have the money to pay Lovie, they've already said they're waiting till the playoffs are done to work out a deal.

This is just a media creation because they are fascinated with the Cowboys and think it's the best job in the world. Clearly Lovie has ties to Texas, but he's under contract with the Bears, owns a home in Illinois, and has children in school.

I think Ron Rivera will end up a better head coach than Lovie. Plus if Lovie really wants to play hardball and go back to Texas (which I do not believe he does, this is all purely hypothetical) I would gladly take a chance at an elite prospect.

I personally think coaches are overated anyway. Jerry Angelo is the one that got all the talent we have on defense, Lovie's scheme is really no more complicated (and in many ways less so) than what any other cover 2 team does.

THANK YOU

I was waiting for someone else to notice this.

Why Reggie Bush didn't get a flag for taunting is beyond me, but if he doesn't get fined, I'll be really disappointed.

He wasn't talking about the taunting IBNO. :lol:

I know. I was making three different points in one rant. #1, instant replay showed the outside man obstructing the defender before the ball was thrown--that's not an offensive pass interference call, but it does qualify as an "illegal procedure/pick pattern" penalty, which is rarely called in the NFL. Personally, I think it's a stupid rule and should be taken off the books, but as it's in there, I'd like to see refs actually call it, because it happens quite often.

#2, I don't understand why a flag wasn't thrown on Bush for taunting/unsportsmanlike conduct prior to his getting into the end zone. Lest I be labelled a "homer," I think Hester should've drawn a penalty when he did it, too. I don't think such penalties should negate the score (as they should, if the flag is thrown during the play), but I think there have to be consequences. Bush apologizing to his coach isn't enough--he should apologize to the guys he was taunting.

#3 I haven't heard anything about a fine, but that's the NFL for you. In a day/age when a defensive back gets fined for a hard hit on a receiver, or a player gets fined for wearing the wrong color shoes (think Peyton Manning when he wanted to wear black shoes as a tribute to Johnny Unitas), I think that the self-centered display Bush put on deserves some sort of official sanction.

IBleedNavyandOrange
01-24-2007, 07:56 AM
Catching up on the thread.

The Lovie to Dallas talk is just hot air. First off, by league rules, JJ can't talk to Lovie until after the Superbowl, and because of post-Superbowl hoopla (if the Bears win) it probably will be closer to 15 days from today before JJ could talk to Lovie to sound him out. I think the Cowboys don't want to wait that long to get a coach, especially with how fast positions are getting filled.

Second, as 54 has pointed out, Dallas is not so much a dream job as people say. Sure, Lovie is from Texas and probably grew up a Cowboys fan. But he's the head coach for a Superbowl iteration of the most storied franchise in the league, and he enjoys support from the vast majority of the fan base. His opportunities in Chicago only go up from here, if he wants them to. Though the McCaskey ownership is pretty sucky, it can't be as bad as JJ constantly sticking his ugly botoxed face into everything.

Third, Mike Singletary is available (to be snatched away from SF). So that gives the Cowboys a good option, and if by some weird quirk Lovie did leave Chicago, there would be two excellent choices among ex-Superbowl XX Bears. Not a bad situation.

In the end, I think Lovie stays put, and gets a much bigger contract than he would have had he negotiated an extension before (or during) the season. Now, whether that was by accident or design, who knows? But Lovie will be doing his Mona Lisa smile all the way to the bank.

Well at the time, we didnt realize we were going to draft a pro bowl defensive end in the 5th round so I was ok with it even if he didnt see the field. Wouldnt be a bad idea to trade him in a package deal for some picks now that we have Anderson.

I'd ship Lovie off for a first round pick in a heartbeat. I think the difference between him and Rivera is negligible.

That being said, I think this is all jargon. They will and have the money to pay Lovie, they've already said they're waiting till the playoffs are done to work out a deal.

This is just a media creation because they are fascinated with the Cowboys and think it's the best job in the world. Clearly Lovie has ties to Texas, but he's under contract with the Bears, owns a home in Illinois, and has children in school.Are you serious? You've gone off you're rocker.
I think Ron Rivera will end up a better head coach than Lovie. Plus if Lovie really wants to play hardball and go back to Texas (which I do not believe he does, this is all purely hypothetical) I would gladly take a chance at an elite prospect.

I personally think coaches are overated anyway. Jerry Angelo is the one that got all the talent we have on defense, Lovie's scheme is really no more complicated (and in many ways less so) than what any other cover 2 team does.

You're right. Coaches are overrated. Tell that to NO. Tell that to Notre Dame. Tell that to Jim Haslett.

I don't understand.

New Orleans got precipitously better for tons of reasons beyond Sean Payton. Drew Brees? Reggie Bush? Marques Colston? A healthy Duece? The fact that they didn't have to play on the road every week? Haslett had none of those things the year prior.

And Notre Dame sucks. They are maybe a top 25 team. Maybe. I'd personally take TCU in a game over Notre Dame.

THANK YOU

I was waiting for someone else to notice this.

Why Reggie Bush didn't get a flag for taunting is beyond me, but if he doesn't get fined, I'll be really disappointed.

He wasn't talking about the taunting IBNO. :lol:

I know. I was making three different points in one rant. #1, instant replay showed the outside man obstructing the defender before the ball was thrown--that's not an offensive pass interference call, but it does qualify as an "illegal procedure/pick pattern" penalty, which is rarely called in the NFL. Personally, I think it's a stupid rule and should be taken off the books, but as it's in there, I'd like to see refs actually call it, because it happens quite often.

#2, I don't understand why a flag wasn't thrown on Bush for taunting/unsportsmanlike conduct prior to his getting into the end zone. Lest I be labelled a "homer," I think Hester should've drawn a penalty when he did it, too. I don't think such penalties should negate the score (as they should, if the flag is thrown during the play), but I think there have to be consequences. Bush apologizing to his coach isn't enough--he should apologize to the guys he was taunting.

#3 I haven't heard anything about a fine, but that's the NFL for you. In a day/age when a defensive back gets fined for a hard hit on a receiver, or a player gets fined for wearing the wrong color shoes (think Peyton Manning when he wanted to wear black shoes as a tribute to Johnny Unitas), I think that the self-centered display Bush put on deserves some sort of official sanction.

Hey, was the pick play with Reggie Bush that got them a touchdown legal? I thought it was an illegal play in the NFL? And if it was, what would the flag be?

THANK YOU

And I think the problem with Danieal Manning is that he doesn't have Mike Brown back there with him making him play better. Which is why I think Safety is a day-one draft priority regardless of what happens with Briggs. We need someone who can be a good replacement for Brown and push Manning to play smarter.

Devin hester did the same thing after he socred on a return.... :|

He apologized for the flip into the end zone. A lot of people are all over Reggie for pointing at Urlacher, or any other Bears player, which he simply did not do.

Devin did it against a crap defense and not towards a former MVP. HUUUUUUGE DIFFERENCE. Plus, we were winning after that TD celebration. and Hester didn't do a jig. and he didn't DIVE into the endzone. To compare the two is pure ignorance.

Ah yes...pure ignorance, as opposed to contaminated ignorance. So sorry to disrupt your heighten sensibilities whoever the hell you are.

So it's only taunting if you point at a good player, but not taunting if you point at bad players? Is that the gist of your argument? Hester pointed, did a little hand motion towards the players, dragged his feet in a Neion dance for about 5 yards kicking field turf all over the place, and then danced once he got into the endzone. I suppose that no, he didn't flip, so maybe there in lies your argument.

Otherwise, I question your ability to jurist who is ignorant and who is not.

I'd be surprised if the first pick isn't an offensive lineman. I think Tony Ugoh from Arkansas is the best fit, since he has definite left tackle potential, with Blalock being the best fit for guard or right tackle and better prospect over all.

I'd add Tony Ugoh to the list of first round prospects for OT. I'd but him at the top of the list. None of those wide receivers offer anything more than what we currently have. Right now the value doesn't seem to be there in the later rounds at WR. I don't think DT is a need anymore Tank isn't going anywhere and we'll get Tommie and Dusty back, and in all likelyhood Scott will be re-signed. After this post-season I don't think Thomas Jones is going anywhere, not that he'll be the starter next year but if they want to compete again next year we'll need him and Benson. Nothing really stands out for me. I think Beason could be passed of as a first round pick. I'd ass Michael Johnson and Sabby Piscatelli at safety for the third round.

Dude he pretty much mocked the St. Louis player by waving his hand at him to catch up, how is that not taunting? I don't get it. How is that different than what Reggie Bush did?

And I don't care if you're up, down, or tied; and I don't care if you do it to Brian Urlacher or ******* Henry Burris, it's still taunting.. You just don't do it IMO. I was pissed at Devin when he did it, and yes I thought it was classless, but that's my opinion on the matter.

So you think it's acceptable when a team is winning, but not when they're losing. That's hypocritcal IMO. Both cases show up the opposing team.
