i know he owns this shirt. He has to. 

I would hope he at least has paper mache likenesses of their heads mounted on woode nplagues in his den.

Is it possible someone is unaware how this makes them look? Talk about being owned.

You might also remember that the Bears OC last season was Aaron Kromer, who was caught anonymously **** talking Jay Cutler to the NFL Network, and then had to tearfully apologize to the team after the fact.

 

Since being jettisoned, Kromer has been arrested for allegedly punching a boy over the use of lawn chairs. Those are, presumably, the same lawn chairs that Chicago used to protect its quarterbacks last season.

 

Welcome back!!!!

 

 

I used to live for WYTS before realizing that Drew is a **** writer who thinks RANDOM CAPS and brazilians of swear words per capita equal brave #hottakes, when he and his hack staff aren't trying to combine the social justice campaigns of Tumblr with sports coverage. Also, considering how much accountability he demands out of sports media, the man is a freaking hypocrite. Observe:

 

2014 Bears:

 

Your coach: Marc Trestman, who has turned out to be pretty good! Sure, the defense is abominable, but look at all those deep passes that are actually completed! NICE. Trestman's emergence as a sound football mind means we can now move on to the part where the Bears nickel-and-dime him at every turn, until he finally gives up and walks away. That's how it works in Chicago. Either you're a ****ty coach and you fail, or you're a decent coach who gets lowballed and suffocated by management ... and you fail.

 

2015 Bears:

 

When we last left the Bears, they were crumbling under “QB guru” and man-who-is-mysteriously-hanging-out-at-a-playground-by-himself Marc Trestman. Turns out that hiring a lameass CFL coach isn’t the unorthodox masterstroke the Bears thought it was! WHAT A STUNNING TURN OF EVENTS.

Also he's Queen homer. YAWN. At least the fan letters are good for a few chuckles.

 

We worship Ditka 30 damned years after Super Bowl XX in spite of the fact that he is Donald Trump with a mustache.

From the comments section:

Michael:

I am the idiot who spent $250 on an opening day ticket so I can watch Rodgers personally fist **** every last one of our players as Cutler and his unvaccinated family sit on a mountain of money. I’ve basically paid to watch the team I love bukkake all over my childhood.

I suspect the comments are fake, since the spelling, grammar and level of wit seem well beyond the facility of the typical Bears fan.

But still it's funny 'cuz it's true.

Are you effing kidding? Hilarious if this is true...

 

Chicago Bears new media coverage rules: don’t report on us

 

 

 

 

Tom Brady destroyed his cell phone. Now the Chicago Bears apparently would like beat reporters to self-destruct or otherwise disappear.

The team has released new coverage rules for its training camp. Like all NFL teams, it just started.

Dan Bernstein, a Chicago radio sports talk host, summarized the new rules thusly after mentioning the rather open access for fans:

Credentialed reporters, however, have now been told not to report. They can’t tell anyone what they see on the field, nor can they approach players or coaches at the conclusion of practice without having submitted a request for approval 24 hours prior.

These laughable guidelines were put in place ostensibly to control information, despite the fact that it clearly does the exact opposite. Instead of allowing those trained and paid to process and disseminate news, the Bears have now ceded that control to anybody with a smartphone.

As the Chicago Tribune also underscores, the attempt to limit coverage seems pretty lame.

Like Tom Brady, the Bears are apparently believers in the less information, the better.

Lovie Smith arrived in Chicago and proclaimed job 1 is to beat the effing Packers. The John Fox Era starts with a home opener vs The Mighty Green Bay Packers. He knows he's undermanned, but he has an entire offseason to prepare and has Vic Fangio by his side. Those guys are good coaches and Fox took a Delhomme QBd team to the Superb Owl.

 

I think its unwise to underestimate any opponent; ( nothing more dangerous than a wounded mosquito.)

Seriously though, its a divisional match-up and the bears are going to show up on opening day foaming at the mouth

Truth.

Expecting more out of Cutler than what he’s shown thus far in his career is just nonsensical. Cutler is not a quarterback that is going to make other players around him better; he needs to operate in an offensive system that will hide his weaknesses and mitigate the disastrous mistakes that have plagued his career.

 

 

 CHI OC Gase - Cutler smarter than I thought

 

Translation: I was under the impression Jay was a real Munson, but he's really just a dumb-ass.

only comment at the article currently reveals the delusion fans can live in:

Larsonite says:

The bears have talent and will be one of the surprise teams to make the playoffs. The coaching, game plans and team chemistry were the reasons why we had a horrible season. Imo, we’ll have a top 15 defense and an offense that can score at will when it’s rolling. Cutler is the big question but this year is his first last year. If he struggles, no one will want him on their team next year. That is the motivation I think settles him down for a very good season.

"... an offense that can score at will..." 

Peter King's ass-kissery ramping up.

From a divisional standpoint. Aaron has not performed well against Chicago. He's only 11-3 with a rating of 109.8. He's played much better against Detroit and Minny. He needs to clean that up.

 

He's 31-9 against the division overall with a rating of 114.2. And he didn't finish 2 of those games. 

 

And he wants to play 8 more years. 

 

Thanks Ted. 

The defense generally regarded as the best in NFL history might be the only collection in Chicago that fully appreciates the fact Jay Cutler is the greatest Chicago QB of all time while secretly wishing like **** they had a chance to play against that turnover machine. 

 

 

Meanwhile, Alshon Jeffery is in a walking boot and using crutches after he injured his calf in their preseason opener. Smokin Jay's #1 WR Week 1 might be Eddie Royal.

 

The Bears are looking poised to be a team fighting for the worst record in the NFL this season. Fans don't even get the excitement of seeing their high 1st round pick in action with White likely done for the year

It's OK; Jay Cutler still has an ample number of cornerbacks to throw to.

Whoa, I think you've just solved the Bears offensive woes. Move the teams CBs onto offense .

I told my buddy we'd trade him a WR for Martellus Bennett.

 

He said...."YES! Let's do this! Jordy for MartySaurus."

 

I said, "No. I was thinking more like Myles White & an Old Milwaukee. I'll throw in a bag of chips."

Yes. Cutler is as physically talented as anyone, leadership is completely nebulous and mentally he's a honey badger. There is a dearth of great QBs in the league, and soon to be worse with Brady, Manning and Brees about done.

 

Is Cutler really that much worse than guys like (and including) Romo, Eli and Rivers?

More on Cutler from Grantland

Cliff Notes version:

"From the moment Cutler posed with Lovie Smith and Jerry Angelo for the first time at Halas Hall, the Bears have hired two new head coaches, two new general managers, and five offensive coordinators. Cutler has taken Chicago to the playoffs once, the same number of trips Rex Grossman and Kyle Orton delivered during their seasons as the team’s starting quarterback."

Answer: not many.

QBs are better than they've ever been. There's never been a period where there have been this many clear-cut Hall of Famers playing at the same time. The problem with today's NFL is that all the rule changes have made the game too focused on throwing the ball. Teams used to be able to make it to Super Bowls with guys like Vince Ferragamo and David Woodley by compensating with strong defenses and rushing attacks. That's impossible in today's NFL.

Not only the protection rules, but all of the ticky-tack PI/illegal contact/holding penalties. If you were to take the '85 Bears secondary or the '96 Packers secondary and put them on a defense today, they'd be one of the most heavily penalized groups in the league (at least until they adjusted to the new rules). Things got really bad in that regard at the end of Tagliabue's tenure, and they've only gotten worse under Goodell.

Collin Kaepernick and Russ Wilson don't agree with this. At least not publicly.

I hate Wilson, but he is a talented QB (not #2 salary in the league level talented, but he's at least in the top third of the league's starting QBs). Kaepernick was/is a pure gimmick player. He initially took the league by storm before teams figured him out, and he reacted poorly to the adversity since he's an immature punk.

And during the most important playoff game he ever played in, he quit.

Apples & Oranges.

 

Can't compare 2 separate people & 2 separate injuries & subsequently 2 separate pain tolerances. 

 

Hey, we all know Cutler is a pussy & should've kept playing. That much we agree on. Where we disagree (apparently) is on the severity of Cutlers injury. I'm ok with that.

I'll remind you fellows that the spirit of the TBSS is ****ting on the Bores only and purely. 

Any relevant Packer currents events talk (that has nothing to do with the last butt raping on said Bores by said Packers) will render me dyspeptic and it just shan't be pretty.

If not for the Packers, Jay Cutler is a pretty good QB

If you throw out his performances against the Packers, one could argue that Jay Cutler is a very good NFL quarterback (despite what Steve Young says). 

 

No, seriously.

 

Windy City Gridiron’s Lester A. Wilfong Jr. worked the numbers, and they’re eye-opening. 

 

Cutler against the NFL minus the Packers: 61W-48L (.560), 2,186 for 3,511 (62.3%), 25,342 yards, 170 TDs (4.8%), 108 Ints (3.1%), 87.4 passer rating.

 

By comparison, Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman, who called Sunday’s Bears-Packers game for Fox, put up these career numbers: 94W-71L (.569), 2898 for 4175 (61.5%), 32,942 yards, 165 TDs (3.5%), 141 Ints (3.0%), 81.6 passer rating. Note: Aikman also has three Super Bowl rings. 

 

Wilfong points out that the Packers have had a winning record every year Cutler has faced them, averaging 11.7 wins. 

 

Here are Cutler’s stats in 13 games (including playoffs) vs. the Packers: 1W-12L (.077), 243 for 424 (57.3%), 2,986 yards, 16 TDs (3.8%), 24 Ints (5.7%), 66.1 passer rating.

@AlbertBreer: In the end, the Bears paid Jared Allen $14.62 million for 18 games of work. Or $2.66 million per sack.

 

@JasonLaCanfora: In 18 games with the Bears, Allen registered 5.5 sacks for Bears. Team went 5-14 during time he was on the roster.

 

@adbrandt: Beyond cash ramifications, Allen will count $12.5 million on Bears Cap next year.  Probably a top 2 or 3 Cap charge on entire team.

 

@adbrandt: Again, Bears cash obligations to Allen may be over (assuming no deferred payments) but cant escape dead $ from $15.5M guaranteed at signing.

 

@AlbertBreer: Btw, only 15 non-rookies on the Bears roster were drafted by the team. That's a pretty stunning number. New regime knows it. Rebuild needed.

If Jimmy Clausen were to start this entire year, I think the Bears could threaten that 0-16 mark of the 2008 Lions.  As much as we bag on Cutler, he might be able to squeeze a win or 2 out of that sorry bunch, but I think Clausen is just about as bad as Brian Brohm was.  At least Brohm didn't seem like a punk, Clausen does seem like a punk.

Really good move for Carolina. Allen isn't a Pro Bowler anymore, but he can still thrive as a situational pass-rusher on a good defense.

Originally Posted by CAPackFan95:

Ryan Lindley?  Maybe?  

When a player is that bad, it becomes difficult to decide just who is the absolute worst. Spurgeon Wynn or Craig Krenzel? Mike McMahon or Jimmy Clausen? They're all too awful to play long enough to provide a really good sample size.

Alshon Jeffery (assuming he can get healthy) and TE Martellus Bennett (if Quarless is out a while) would make for interesting Packer additions. Though I highly doubt TT would do it. Nor the Bears trading them to their biggest rival.

 

But hey I can pretend I'm on drugs and dream for 5 minutes.

They'll have a lot of cap money to spend on free agents. Our only major free agent next year is Mike Daniels. Wouldn't be surprised to see him in Chicago. Crosby is also a free agent, but he'll reup. Also, Neal, Richardson, Guion, Raji, and Starks.

 

Also, shouldn't forget James Jones.

That has been a big part of their problem, thinking you can fix things by signing free agents. They need to learn how to draft and build a team.

 

Following the Chicago Bears' 22-20 come-from-behind win over the Oakland Raiders, Martellus Bennett was asked if Cutler is too often criticized. The tight end went biblical:

 

"They threw rocks at Jesus, and Jesus was an excellent guy who did a lot of awesome stuff," Bennett told Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times.

I thought you were gonna end up throwing a football to a Charles Woodson.

Jeremiah Ratliff was released and escorted from the building by police yesterday. There was a report Ratliff had "words" with GM Ryan Pace but it was uncertain if the discussion preceded or followed his release.

 

Superficially this sounds like just more suckitude but I'm concerned that the Bears are now decisively attempting to improve their team.

PAts and Brady getting everything they deserve.  I hope Brady spends millions trying to take this all the way to The Supreme Court and they in turn laugh in Brady's face and refuse to hear the case. 

 

And also The Bears  and Bear fans still SUCK!!!!!!
