Rodon was stellar today.
8 innings pitched. 0 runs, 2 hits, 12 strike outs.
Again, don't change the team, change the coaches.

So here we go again. This time no-one gives us a chance....and I like that. I think there's something fundamentally 'Bearish' about having the world against us and adopting a siege mentality.
Dallas are ok, but nothing more than that. Hoyer brings something different, and Coach Fox really has nothing to lose for this one. Surprise plays wouldn't be surprising.
I know I'm putting a 'best case scenario' spin on this, but I really DO think that it might be fun tonight.....I say tonight as it's another 1.30 am start for this poor old Brit. Ah well.
Anyway, utilise Royal and Miller, and for crying out loud create chances for Langford to run for more than a couple of yards per carry. Minimise 3rd down situations, but when you have them get the play calling right!
There you see? Easy game this.
Bear Down Bears!
This ain't over. ☺

Yesterday you guys impressed me with your knowledge and ideas, and cheered me up with your attitude.
So I'll push my luck.
Here are the 2 main questions which are floating through my inadequate mind:

Can the Bears still make the post season?
Is Dowell Loggains out of his depth?

Of course there are many other questions, but right now Fox and Cutler are who we have.
And although some of you disagree, I still have faith in those 2 men.
What do you all think?

The media is quick to dismiss the Bears.
I despise the media.
So, on the odd occasion that the media are justified in dismissing my beloved team I get pretty f***ing angry with everything.
I was wrong. My 2016 confidence was unjustified.
We suck!
I was vocal on these posts. I said that Gase wouldn't be missed, and that Loggains would fit in seamlessly with the offense.
I poo-poohed the nay sayers.
In my defense, I also poo-poohed the overly optimistic.
Having said all that, I'm an optimist (as long as people do what I say immediately ☺).
We need a QB and offensive coach who knows how to call plays and we need.....and we need.....and we need....ad infinitum.
This isn't knee jerk.
We really do suck.
What do we need guys?
Apart from a miracle?
Because, have I mentioned? We suck!
I need to seek solace from my fellow sufferers, so please give me your thoughts and ideas to stop us from sucking.
Thanks.

Spare a thought for this UK based Bears fan. The game starts at 1.30 am!!
I've booked a day off for Tuesday, so it'll be an early night and a midnight alarm call. That should give me enough time for a couple of cold ones to ease the anxiety.
I may not be in the vicinity, but I'm with you in heartfelt spirit and bowel loosening panic.
Bear Down Bears!

All Bears fans (and fans of Chicago sport) should read this article from the Trib.

This is one of the best and most thoughtful pieces I've read about the Bears.
The writer really has a handle on Chicago sport.
There are parts of it which make me cringe (see his one comment about the White Sox), but only because I recognise the truth of it.
He cuts through the crap to reveal the reality.
It doesn't make for comfortable reading, but I think it should be required reading and, as the man says, we MUST beat Philadelphia.
Bear Down Bears!

Can't blame Loggains for bad personnel decisions. Playoffs are extremely unlikely. Losses of Matt Forte, Martellus Bennett, and Matt Slauson (now SD center, not a rookie) (all playing GREAT for new teams) have crippled the offense. Fine to go young when rebuilding, but GM had no replacement for Bennett, no replacement for Forte, and only lucked into Sitton, who's about as old a Slauson.}

Pass protection is near the worst in the NFL, while run game is also hurt. {Did anyone notice how, on Cutler's bomb to Alshon that BOTH tackles were cleanly beaten simultaneously on outside rushes, without getting a hand on the pass rusher? When was the last time you saw any NFL OL -- heck, Cleveland, LA Rams -- give 2 outside rushers a clean sprint to the QB on a 5-step drop?}

I won a bet on an over-under that Cutler wouldn't last 8 games without an injury. Given Hoyer's history of multiple concussions, Hoyer may be hoping Cutler comes back soon.

Great article but face it, we are rebuilding. The defense needs one more year of experience and draft picks. Cutler is our biggest problem on offense and his contract actually helps us in rebuilding if we draft the right guy for QB next year. We will have all the other positions filled and a star rookie QB (hopefully) playing through a first round rookie contract for 4-5 years. Look Hoyer sucks too. But at least he makes a decision and fires the ball. Which makes your O-Line look better. Cutler can't read a defense pre-snap or post-snap. Holds the ball too long. Scrambles too late into pass rushers. Never throws it away on first or second downs. 11 years in the league has shown us all he can give a team. I don't care who is behind center next year as long as it is not Cutler.

Iceland Exmouth has been a revelation. I didn't understand that supermarkets could be run pleasantly as well as efficiently. For 6 years now, it's been a constant pleasure to visit. I don't know what their hiring policy is, but goodness knows, Tesco and the Co-op (other Exmouth supermarkets) could learn a lot from it.
