Opposite Ends

A bit of sporting humor today. Five Bears were named to the Pro Bowl:
  • Matt Forte's season ended Tuesday when the Bears placed him on injured reserve but the day brought some good news as the running back was named to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career.

    Forte becomes the first offensive player general manager Jerry Angelo has drafted in 10 years to be selected to the all-star game, although he can't play because he was placed on IR with a sprained MCL in his right knee. Angelo now has selected eight Pro Bowl players in the last nine drafts.

    Forte was one of five Bears players named to the NFC squad, joining linebackers Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs, cornerback Charles Tillman and special teamer Corey Graham. Like Forte, Tillman and Graham are first-time selections.

Of course, the Bears are in the midst of a 5 game losing streak and are headed home after Sunday's final regular season game. We're sure that each of these selections would give it all up for a healthy lineup and a shot a the playoffs.

In the meantime, on the other side of town:

  • It took the Blackhawks 36 games to reach the 50-point mark. The last time they did it in 36 contests was in 2009, the season that ended with the Hawks hoisting the Stanley Cup.

    Let the comparisons begin.
OK, they're going to go far in the playoffs this year. How far? Lord knows....Lord Stanley that is.

As long as jagoff Kane doesn't get his ass whupped when he's out on the town drunk trying to pick fights. This guy is a class a asshole. Not everyone is an 80 year cab driver dude you will get your ass kicked one day you are awfully small especially without a defenseman protecting you.

Hopefully they can make some trades to get more production out of there 3rd and 4th lines like they had when they won the cup! Time to trade Frolic and Bickell. Lets see more of Kane at center also. This all means nothing if you dont have a hot goalie in the playoffs. P.O. H

Why do they name players from a loser team like the Bears? The Bears lose because of their players. And you want them in a pro bowl?

The Bears will never win anything as long as the cheapskate McCaskey family controls the team. Old man Halas had a reputation as a cheap mother fucker. He wouldn't spend a dime to see Jesus Christ kick a field goal on Christmas day. Fuck those rich selfish bastards.

For Forte, dealing with the Halas Family is like the police dealing with shortshanks or 9.5.

The. Bears'. Coaches. and. Management. Stink.
Unprepared, clueless at times, wrong defense for today's game. And yeah-let's keep running the ball. While Brees and Rodgers throw for 300-400 yards a game!!!!
Can't blame the players too much when the whole philosophy is from 20 years ago....
Wait-doesn't that remind you of another organization?
