Bears Game


After the silliness spouted by a certain Lions player this week combined with Detroit's only gaining something like 38 yards on the ground last week, does anyone really want to bet that Detroit will even get a sniff of the end zone today?

We aren't really betting persons (disclaimer - we're lying through our teeth here) and even we wouldn't put any money against the Bears being able to pulling off back-to-back shutouts.

Update after the game.

UPDATE: Well, except for one 3rd quarter drive, we looked like Carnac the Magnificent there. Unfortunately, this game also exposed a glaring flaw in the Bears offense - 89 total yards rushing. If opposing teams can shut down the passing game, where are the Bears going to grind it out? Don't get us wrong, the passing game looked very good today and we thought that was going to be the big question mark all season. But a well rounded offense is what's needed to get past Game 1 of the playoffs.

While the games da' Bears played thusfar are not a true test of their prowess, it's STILL one-game-at-a-time.
IF you are a true Chicago sports fan, you'll root for da' Bears just because they're da Bears!
There are a lot of interesting characters, rooks & vets this year on the team. I hope they go all the way. [OK,OK, ALL you dissenters will say...".....FUCK McCaskey"]
I agree, but I'm rooting for da' Bears [players AND fans] NOT the owners.
Let's just wait and see!

P.S. MONDAY is OUR Gold Star Family and Park inaugural dedication and candlelight vigil. TAPE the Monday Night Football game and pay tribute to REAL role-models at Soldier Field......"CHICAGO'S FINEST!!!!!"
1930 hours east of Soldier Field. FREE parking, uniforms recommended BUT optional. YOUR attendance there is ALL that counts. Hope to see you there and........ GO BEARS!

30+ vet and 'still' working proud.

Congrats on another win by Chicago.

I, on the other hand, had to suffer miserably and figure out just what the hell the Eagles were thinking in the 4th. I have a feeling it's going to be a LONG season.

Looks like the Bears were thinking air ball all game. The Lions front line is tough so I think they exposed the flaw of the defense. This is actually called game planning..wow, what a concept. I'll reserve my judgement until at least 5 games, but I must admit I was hootin and hollerin as those passes were caught..it was a blast to watch!

To Katykakes: What ever happened with the cheesestand stand guy who only wanted ordering in English?

Did he ever back down?

Nothing like a "Steak Wit" in that town.

Can we all take a deep breath and admit that Jerry Angelo may actually know what he is doing....

Anonymous 12:07 - I'll send you a pic someday. BTW, thanks for the kind words. :)

Anonymous 12:25 - Joey Vento at Geno's Steaks put up w/ a lot of controversy over his "Speak English" sign, but I think it's great. He's right on the money. As far as I know, he's never turned anyone away, but for those that can't speak our English, he goes over the order for them in English and has them repeat it. He's definitely more patient than I am.

The Bears looked good and Grossman threw to eight different receivers, another plus.

Yet, with the bad Lions' defense yesterday I think Kordell Stewart or Jeff Blake would have done as well.

So far the Bears have played two weak teams,(Packers & Lions)Let's see how they do against the Vikings who are also 2-0. When they play teams who are legitimate contenders we will be able to gauge just how good the Bears REALLY are. But for the record,they HAVE been fun to watch.(So far.)

Anonymous 12:25,

I forgot to mention to you that Joey Vento (Geno's) is VERY, VERY good to LEO's, especially those in the Philadelphia Police Dept.

A year ago on August 9th, a friend and very well respected P/O with the PPD was the first police officer from Philly killed in Iraq. His name was Gennaro Pellegrini, and there will never be another like him. He was golden and he is missed immensely.

Gerry's sister posted the following on the Philly LEO forums this evening in regards to Geno's/Gerry:

Joey Vento will be donating the proceeds of his sales from 9/25-9/27 to the Gennaro Pellegrini, Jr Scholarship Fund.

Although I live soooooo close to the city, I avoid it like the plague, but I hope to be there both days to contribute to the fund.

You are missed terribly, Gerry.

R.I.P.

I agree with 01:43:59. The Bears look good, but remember the Packers and Lions are both bad. Minnesota will be a good test, but the SeaHawks the week after will be a better test. I think the Bears will be good, but we will know more in the next two weeks.
