Chicago Bears go from bad to downright hilarious


chicago-bears-draft-jimmy-clausen

If you lived in Chicago, you might grow tired of the Chicago Bears; at least for one-third of the season. From September to January you would possibly get sick of the teams. If you live in Chicago, you are certainly sick of the 1985 Chicago Bears. There is no need to ever publicize them again, but…media outlets still do it.

Local talk radio is pretty much all Chicago Bears all time; rendering it unlistenable. However, the over-coverage does bring with it some benefits. If you need to run errands/go to the gym/pick up something at the store, then during the Bears game is the perfect time to do so. The roads are empty.

However, it could be changing.

Terry Bradshaw, NFL pundits ask Jay Cutler to smile for a change


jay-cutler-terry-bradshaw

Jay Cutler is notorious for the zombie like demeanor he displays most of the time. You can’t tell from looking at Cutler’s body language if the Chicago Bears are a.) up 50 points or b.) like yesterday at New England getting destroyed.

Only Jay Cutler knows for sure how much he really cares or doesn’t truly care on the inside. His nonverbal communication though, almost always conveys apathy.

And the NFL Sunday morning pundits had a lot of fun at Cutler’s expense. They all had hot takes pertaining to “Cutler face.” And as the season goes from tragedy to comedy for the Chicago Bears, it’s time to embrace “just bad” becoming “so bad it’s now liberating.”

Bears OL Kyle Long did right by retracting “booing” comments


Kyle Long, Jordan Mills

Kyle Long, the Bears unofficial Director of Fan Behavior, made the correct call by taking back his “booing” is “unacceptable” remarks.

Jeez, so Brandon Marshall called a few players out after the Bears rolled over and played dead Sunday versus the dangerous Miami Dolphins. Some local media guys are dumb enough to think this means that Marc Trestman “has lost the ballclub.” That’s nuts, beyond nuts.

Marc Trestman: Year Two of bad decisions and worse explanations


marc-trestman

Never mistake inarticulateness for gridiron stupidity.  Two-time Super Bowl winning head coach Bill Parcells’ insufferable verbosity and constant misspeak would have made many English professors cringe, but his astute game management skills evidenced a highly-intelligent football mind

Bears head coach Marc Trestman often times sounds like a college English professor, but his game management decisions are beginning to evince a coaching ineptitude that has cost the Bears victories and is creating a credibility crisis.

Kyle Long rips Bears fans for booing, not making enough noise


Kyle Long, Jordan Mills

Like I’ve always said booing is pointless, but you have a right to do it. Players and coaches have a right to complain about fans booing, and we as media have a right to ridicule them for doing so. Booing doesn’t accomplish anything, and helps no one. That said, Kyle Long and the rest of the Chicago Bears can be miffed if they want.

Today, Long ripped Bears for booing the team (which is 0-3 at home this year) and for not making enough noise to distract the Miami Dolphins when they were on offense, trying to convert third downs.

Brandon Marshall yelled at, called out Jay Cutler


Brandon Marshall

According to ESPN Chicago, Marshall called out QB Jay Cutler, with their source saying there “are some very selfish individuals in the locker room.”

Jay Cutler Don’t Care Awards: ESPN, FOX, NBC, CBS, CSN


jay-cutler-2015-bucks-nfl

Welcome to what may or may not be the final edition of “The Cuttys,” or the Jay Cutler DON’T CARE awards. They honor, as one Facebook commenter put it:

“all the non-news that’s fit to delete.”

Or more literally:  “terrible attempts at creating news, that I instantly deleted upon seeing it in my inbox.”

All media members receive dozens of press releases and story pitches from publicists, Sports Information Departments, Media Relations and PR people every week. This one was the most utterly asinine and completely worthless that I received this week.

And as always, in case you missed it, here’s how these awards got named.

Jeff George isn’t Jay Cutler; and Jay Cutler will not be Jeff George


jeff-george

Jeff George had a distinguished college football career with the Illini; transferring to Champaign from Purdue, and that’s something you never see today, transfers within the same conference. It was also fortuitous, as Jeff George signed with 7 different teams during his 13 year career. Like Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, he’s also from the Hoosier state. George was drafted #1 overall by his hometown Indianapolis Colts in 1990 out of Illinois. Cutler, from Santa Claus, IN, was taken 11th overall by the Denver Broncos.

Comparing Jay Cutler to Jeff George is a stale bit


jay-cutler

There’s this idea floating amongst the NFL Punditocracy that Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler could be this generation’s answer to Jeff George. It’s an interesting comparison, as Jeff George was signed by the Bears in 2004. There are some statistical similarities. Jay Cutler has a much better record as a starter, but the passing stats are close. Both Rich Gannon and Boomer Esiason of the NFL Today on CBS likened Jay Cutler to Jeff George in early 2013 Tom Jackson of ESPN jumped on the bandwagon shortly thereafter.

Add former Baltimore Ravens Head Coach Brian Billick to the mix now.

The Chicago Bears 2014 season feels like root canal


Chicago Bears D-Coordinator Joe Decamillis

The Chicago Bears have been a mix of bad, interesting and downright painful to watch this season. Those feelings peak on Sunday, last through the following days and bleed into the next week’s matchup. There is no break from the pain and suffering; and no positive outlook.

That is exactly how I feel watching the Chicago Bears.

It is also how I feel dealing with my lower left incisor, or bottom left front tooth. The pain I feel while waiting one week for a root canal is similar to the pain the Chicago Bears are inflicting upon fans like myself.
