Underdogs Again (UPDATE)


This is going to be a familiar sight all season we think.

Arizona by 2 and the over/under set at 46.

UPDATE: Well that was painful. 8-and-8 is looking like a dream at this point and the 5-and-11 crowd might be right on the money.

Not to worry. Now that Da Bears are warmed up, they will come through. You will see what professionals at their best can do.

Cutler:

Watch out for "the Honey Badger" (Tyrann Mathieu). Two picks, one for a TD.

Off Topic: I am writing to commend the "Wills for Heroes" program. My spouse and I participated in the program today. The staff was very courtesy. They were informative. They were gracious. I would encourage any public safety member to attend their seminar. We were treated with the utmost respect! They give their time for free. The one regret I have is that I did not bring them each a Starbuck's card, or something of that nature for their time. You speak to about five - six individuals during the process. I highly recommend the program!

Taking the bears getting the points. I was wrong last week taking the Bears against the Packers. Not this week. Bears win outright.

Just give up on the Bears already. Until you get owners that will spend money, the Bears will remain a gutter ball team.

Maybe the Bears can forfeit the next 14 games ...... they're extremely painful to watch. It's not unlike a slow motion train wreck.

There should be a pool on which will be the 1st game the Bears win. Third, Fifth, etc. Or how many games can the Bears lose before winning one; so far two.

You know not of what you speak. The problem is the McCaskey's, but the issue is that they're incompetent, not that they don't spend money. I love the nostalgia of George Halas being a main building block of the league, and now Virginia bring in control, but the family is in over their heads. They're a family that has no outside business interests other than a football team, and they don't know how to run that. Imagine handing over a billion dollar business to someone that's never run a business before. That's the McCaskey's in a nutshell. If you look, they spent $130 million on salary alone this year. Spending isn't the issue; spending wisely is.

OK after this game, my Sundays are free!!

No more watching the Loser Bears. To me, if they can't win Green Bay, they ain't going to the playoffs.

I felt that way last week and had to go shopping with the wife this week. Went to lunch and watched the first half there. As soon as it got tied up I thought, 'hmmmmm... looks like they are going to blow it." Sure enough.

Good thing we accomplished going out and buying the groceries. I didn't feel like I wasted all afternoon watching them lose. AND LOSE BIG.

If this second game was won or at least close, I may have given them a third week. As it stands, plan a LOT for Sundays because watching the Bears is a waste of time.


Cutler should have been cut last year. Now he will be collecting a big salary for doing nothing - Hmmmmm,, that sounds SO Chicago. Do the Bears have a "gold braid" deal too?

Obviously you know nothing about football or the Chicago Bears. The NFL operates with a salary cap which means that most teams spend about the same amount of money each season for their roster.

The Bears salary cap number is $ 144 million and they're spending approx $ 140.5 million.
That leaves them with less than $ 4 mil in cap space for the rest of this season to maneuver their roster and add players and account for injuries etc. Saying the McCaskey's aren't spending the money is a fallacy borne out of ignorance.

The Bears problems began when they OVERpromoted President & CEO Ted Phillips, who was originally hired in 1983 as an accountant and tax consultant. Ted made the McCaskey's 10's of millions of dollars and they kept promoting him, but they NEVER should have allowed him to make FOOTBALL decisions. He hired former GM Phil Emery who brought in a Canadian football league coach to run the team when the NFL Coach Of The Year was ready to accept the job. The rest is history. Emery & his Canadian coach, Marc Trestman, ran the team into the ground till they were fired last December. It will likely take 2 to 3 years to recover from that.

Hopefully, new GM, Ryan Pace, is the guy who can bring them some respectability, but unfortunately, that will not happen this season.

Why spend more money when the place is full to capacity? Not to mention the 10 year waiting list for tickets!

The owners are there to make money and that they do.

The Bears would blow the pick. Shit, it would take another 5 years to build a team around a #1 pick. By then knees are shot, the player is disgusted from working out of position. Ughhh. What's the use.

When will it be "Tebow Time?"

At least he would be entertaining. And make the Bears somewhat interesting.

Those of you looking for the Bears to get the #1 draft pick: Why? Unless that player is a ready-to-go star QB (unlikely) it is a waste. Just one pick. One expensive pick.

May be better to trade it away and get more 2nd, 3rd and later round picks.

BEARS GUY:

You're right about the salary cap. And there is also a salary floor. Teams have to spend a minimum percentage (89%?)of the cap on salary. Don't know what the whack is if they don't.

The key to long term winning in the NFL is DRAFT and DEVELOP. Maybe an occasional free agent. Have to start with talent evaluation.
