Ryan Nanni [11:25 PM]:

One week til Romo, kids. Stretch those narratives.


Oh No Romo [11:20 PM]:


mduffster [11:15 PM]:

do the bears have linebackers?


Oh No Romo [11:14 PM]:


Charlie Gebow [11:14 PM]:

This is getting into “College team trying to impress pollsters” territory


Stephen White [11:14 PM]:

Bryce Brown was picking em up and putting em down. 50 burger


Oh No Romo [11:13 PM]:

This game…


Ryan Van Bibber [11:13 PM]:

oh my


Stephen White [11:09 PM]:

Not the start he hoped for I imagine


Oh No Romo [11:09 PM]:

McCown Town is closed for repairs


Charlie Gebow [11:09 PM]:

MCCOWN TOWN!


Ryan Nanni [11:07 PM]:

“Nah, I’m good.” – Josh McCown


Charlie Gebow [11:06 PM]:

Somewhere, Josh McDaniels cackles


Ryan Van Bibber [11:04 PM]:

McCown Town, next stop please


icorriher [11:04 PM]:

stop the fight please


Stephen White [11:03 PM]:

Boykin been waiting for that all game


Oh No Romo [11:03 PM]:

Mark down Jay Cutler Pick Six on your Bears Bingo Card


Oh No Romo [10:57 PM]:

@Clefo Good point


Charlie Gebow [10:55 PM]:

@Oh No Romo One would be a 3 and the other a 4 so it would have to be the Championship game, no?


Stephen White [10:54 PM]:

Fat lady is warming up


Oh No Romo [10:54 PM]:

@sgw94 Is there a scenario where if these two teams got in, they’d possibly face each other? Like the divisional round.


Stephen White [10:52 PM]:

Bears defense has to be sick of that read option.


Oh No Romo [10:52 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber Well, if the stats people say there is a chance…


Ryan Van Bibber [10:52 PM]:

@Oh No Romo no, i’m not. but the stats people are!


Oh No Romo [10:51 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber So you’re saying there’s a chance?


Ryan Van Bibber [10:49 PM]:


Mark Ennis [10:49 PM]:

hahaha poor Bears


Stephen White [10:49 PM]:

Fail


Stephen White [10:48 PM]:

@Run Home Jack lol


Ryan Nanni [10:47 PM]:

@sgw94 Copyright Mike Felder Enterprises


Stephen White [10:46 PM]:

WRs always get to push off more than any DB ever would get away with


Stephen White [10:45 PM]:

Seems too little too late but you never know


Stephen White [10:44 PM]:

Wheel route, if he caught it clean might be TD


Mark Ennis [10:44 PM]:

Man that was a gorgeous throw.


icorriher [10:43 PM]:

collinsworth, that is


Mark Ennis [10:42 PM]:

So, Bears fans…


icorriher [10:42 PM]:

Was really talking like he doesn’t know what “11” means on a defensive card? I mean, wow.


Stephen White [10:41 PM]:

Ouch


Stephen White [10:37 PM]:

Its called probable NCAA sanctions, guys


Ryan Nanni [10:35 PM]:

Nah, you got this, Cutler. YOU. GOT. THIS.


Stephen White [10:35 PM]:

Fuuuuuummmbbbllllleeee


Mark Ennis [10:34 PM]:


Stephen White [10:34 PM]:


Oh No Romo [10:33 PM]:


Stephen White [10:31 PM]:

Helluva an effort by Kendricks


Stephen White [10:31 PM]:

How bad is the NFC North? I mean really


Ryan Nanni [10:31 PM]:

@Clefo Comparatively, it won’t be remembered as the worst part of his career.


Charlie Gebow [10:30 PM]:

I don’t think touting Monte Kiffin’s USC tenure is a GOOD thing, Chris


Stephen White [10:27 PM]:

That’s one of those “I have to see it on film” plays


Stephen White [10:27 PM]:

Peppers has no idea how he missed that tackle


Mark Ennis [10:27 PM]:

The Eagles failed to really block anyone and McCoy still goes in untouched.


Ryan Nanni [10:27 PM]:

3rd 7:11
PHILADELPHIA ALL OF THE POINTS – 3
CHICAGO 3

Stephen White [10:26 PM]:

We have reached the demoralizing section of the evening, folks


Mark Ennis [10:25 PM]:

Just think how lopsided this would be if the Eagles didn’t run some gimmick offense.


Stephen White [10:23 PM]:

That kick was…interesting


Stephen White [10:22 PM]:

Guess I was wrong. Bears have been totally dominated from start till now


Ryan Nanni [10:21 PM]:


Oh No Romo [10:20 PM]:

@Mark Ennis Maybe during the John Shoop years.


Mark Ennis [10:20 PM]:

You could see Chip Kelly joking with the refs about whether or not he could challenge that


Stephen White [10:20 PM]:

I say call stands but it was damn close


Stephen White [10:19 PM]:

Man thats close


Mark Ennis [10:18 PM]:

Have to think 8 attempts for 3 yards was not Chicago’s gameplan coming in.


Mark Ennis [10:15 PM]:

I can’t believe Peppers is still that much of a freak athlete.


Ryan Nanni [10:13 PM]:

Refs hate it when you step on their lines.


Charlie Gebow [10:12 PM]:

So I guess it’s too hard to go “Oh, hey, we’re gonna review it anyway, but by golly we like your initiative!”


Stephen White [10:12 PM]:

Sucks for the Bears


Ryan Nanni [10:12 PM]:

Seattle REALLY coulda used this level of HD review film, by the way.


Ryan Van Bibber [10:11 PM]:

that’s only the second fumble of the season for McCoy … if it stands


Ryan Nanni [10:10 PM]:

This rule is so eye-rollworthy.


Stephen White [10:08 PM]:

Turnovers might be the only way the Bears get back in it


Oh No Romo [10:08 PM]:

Maybe?


Oh No Romo [10:08 PM]:

McCoy fumble


Stephen White [10:06 PM]:

Eagles making it look so easy


Charlie Gebow [10:06 PM]:

@Mark Ennis True, but mostly from embarrassment from my inability to catch the kick


Oh No Romo [10:06 PM]:

@Run Home Jack “Why is he taking a knee at the 2-yard line?”


Ryan Nanni [10:05 PM]:

@Mark Ennis Like, “why did he go out at the 7?” quick.


Oh No Romo [10:05 PM]:

@Mark Ennis I’d die trying to catch the kickoff.


Ryan Nanni [10:05 PM]:

@Mark Ennis False. I’d get out of bounds quick, though.


Mark Ennis [10:04 PM]:

True or false: You would die if you tried to return an NFL kickoff?


Ryan Van Bibber [10:04 PM]:


Charlie Gebow [10:03 PM]:

@Run Home Jack Well, it is a copycat league


Ryan Nanni [10:02 PM]:

@Clefo He actually stole that from Chip Kelly, so. http://sports.yahoo.com/video/philadelphia-eagles-head-coach-chip-183310835.html


Oh No Romo [10:02 PM]:

Hey, more late afternoon games!


Mark Ennis [10:01 PM]:

@Clefo GET YOUR CALVINIST ASS OUT OF HERE


Charlie Gebow [10:01 PM]:

Was it part of Costas’ destiny to make that snarky comment about destiny? DID I JUST BLOW YOUR MIND?


Oh No Romo [9:55 PM]:


Ryan Nanni [9:54 PM]:

Important halftime breakdown:


Stephen White [9:50 PM]:

Much*


Stephen White [9:50 PM]:

Didnt think the Eagles would get this must pressure but they are bringing it!


Ryan Van Bibber [9:49 PM]:

solid hustle from Cutler on that


Ryan Van Bibber [9:49 PM]:

@Mark Ennis gotta feel for Prisco a little, he’s still confused if he should bitch about the Eagles b/c Chip Kelly is a “spread” coach or like them b/c Foles isn’t an “option” QB


Oh No Romo [9:46 PM]:

@Run Home Jack In Chicago, they say Do-Vawwwl! (Probably)


Ryan Van Bibber [9:45 PM]:

@Oh No Romo give ’em Mel


Stephen White [9:43 PM]:

Whyyyyy didnt they use the former punt returner for that, Weems?


Ryan Nanni [9:43 PM]:

@Oh No Romo DUUUUUUUVAL


Mark Ennis [9:43 PM]:

Was digging and found this gem:


Oh No Romo [9:42 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber Mel Tucker


Ryan Van Bibber [9:42 PM]:

who is Chicago’s defensive coordinator now?


Ryan Nanni [9:42 PM]:

2nd 1:07
EAGLES 24
WELL IMAGINE REX GROSSMAN IN THIS OFFENSE 0

Stephen White [9:41 PM]:

Still, 24-0 is 24-0 #CaptainObvious


Stephen White [9:40 PM]:

Seems like the Eagles O has cooled off a bit or is it just me?


Stephen White [9:39 PM]:

Its so apparent who the holdovers are from Lovie’s/Marinelli’s defense. They do almost everything right every play. Alignment, assignment, discipline on run lanes


Oh No Romo [9:39 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber Least it won’t be Bears-Packers


Ryan Van Bibber [9:38 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [9:38 PM]:

oh man … got a big surprise for everyone. Are you ready?


Oh No Romo [9:37 PM]:


Stephen White [9:33 PM]:

Briggs gotta be wondering if it was worth it at this point


Ryan Nanni [9:32 PM]:

But that was against the Browns, which, well, the Browns.


Ryan Nanni [9:31 PM]:

The only good thing I can say is that the Bears struggled early last week and came back to win.


Stephen White [9:30 PM]:

Not – lot of plays in the playbook for 3rd n 28


Stephen White [9:28 PM]:

Or get sacked, whichever


Stephen White [9:27 PM]:

After these short catches by Bennett look for the Bears to take a shot behind him soon if Eagles jump


Ryan Nanni [9:27 PM]:

@sgw94 You just made me remember Marty Booker. That was weird.


Stephen White [9:25 PM]:

Marty B with the conversion on a quick out


Stephen White [9:24 PM]:

Gotta want to see more of that if you’re a Bears fan. Jeffery wont fall down every time


Stephen White [9:21 PM]:

Nice play by Williams on the ball


Charlie Gebow [9:20 PM]:

Odds that Cutler is the Browns starting QB next season?


Stephen White [9:20 PM]:

Take. A. Shot.


Stephen White [9:17 PM]:

Good stop for the Bears


Ryan Nanni [9:17 PM]:

I can’t wait for the Courting of Jay Cutler. It’ll be like a Bronte novel, but with sacks.


Stephen White [9:16 PM]:

They needed that sack big time


Stephen White [9:15 PM]:

Sent 5, no pressure


Stephen White [9:14 PM]:

Theyre blitzing but not getting much pressure out of it


Ryan Van Bibber [9:13 PM]:

it seems like everyone on the Bears defense turned 50 in August


Stephen White [9:12 PM]:

Cutler is doing himself no favors. I wonder if ultimately he wouldnt have been better off sitting out the rest of the season


Stephen White [9:12 PM]:

Nope, just double coverage


Stephen White [9:12 PM]:

That looked like triple coverage


Ryan Nanni [9:11 PM]:

(adds log to PUT IN MCCOWN fire)


Ryan Van Bibber [9:10 PM]:

taking Quick over Alshon too


Ryan Van Bibber [9:10 PM]:

the Rams spent May-August talking about Brian Quick as the next Vincent Jackson


Stephen White [9:09 PM]:

The Jets really chose Stephen Hill over Alshon. Still hard to believe


Oh No Romo [9:04 PM]:

Maybe I’ll play GTA V or something.


Ryan Nanni [9:04 PM]:

1st 1:27
PHILADELPHIA 21
WHENEVER YOU’RE READY GUYS 0

Stephen White [9:04 PM]:

Soooooo 21-0 with over a minute left in the 1st…quarter. Wow


BeaverJohn [9:03 PM]:

LTC Frank Slade (Ret.) is feeling ten years younger in Philadelphia.


Stephen White [9:03 PM]:

Easy money


Stephen White [9:01 PM]:

Collingsworth diagnosing concussions from the booth now?


Stephen White [8:59 PM]:

How do you defend that cut!


Ryan Nanni [8:58 PM]:

GO FOR IT YOU CRAZED MADMAN


Stephen White [8:57 PM]:

McCoy is just unfair.


Ryan Van Bibber [8:57 PM]:

458918257

One Seattle politician does not like Arizona

There are better ways to express your frustration with a loss than saying something stupid on Twitter.


Stephen White [8:56 PM]:

Seems an odd time for Wildcat when they could bury them on this drive


Stephen White [8:53 PM]:

Gotta say, at this point if Im the Bears I might start just throwing it up to your big WRs for chunk plays. Time to trash the original gameplan imo


Stephen White [8:52 PM]:

RB seven yards deep usually means run and the Bears do for four yards with Forte


Ryan Nanni [8:47 PM]:

1st 7:44
CHIP KELLY’S GIMMICKS WON’T WORK IN MANSYLVANIA 14
CHICAGO 0

Mark Ennis [8:46 PM]:

Can’t imagine Cutler loves the idea of playing a whole game with the opponent knowing they’ve got to throw the ball.


Stephen White [8:46 PM]:

Shady scores and man the Bears had better answer soon or this will be over by halftime.


Ryan Nanni [8:45 PM]:

@sgw94 Carlos Boozer can’t defend ballhandlers on the perimeter. Wait, what?


Stephen White [8:43 PM]:

Hey maybe, MAYBE the Bears should try to force Foles left. Maybe


Stephen White [8:43 PM]:

And there it is


Stephen White [8:42 PM]:

Man the Bears’ defense can’t even regroup. Look for the Eagles to take a shot here


Stephen White [8:42 PM]:

Welp


Ryan Nanni [8:41 PM]:

1st 9:54
THAT TEAM THAT WILL BEAT THE COWBOYS NEXT WEEK 7
THAT TEAM THAT WILL BEAT THE PACKERS NEXT WEEK 0

Charlie Gebow [8:40 PM]:

That’s the sort of play that only the tutelage of Mike Stoops could have made happen


Stephen White [8:39 PM]:

Foles’ athleticism is way underrated. Nice pass for the TD with 99 breathing down his neck as he rolled to his right


Stephen White [8:38 PM]:

Big 3rd and goal coming. No telling what Kelly goes with here.


Stephen White [8:37 PM]:

Right tackle appeared to move early


Mark Ennis [8:36 PM]:

Penalty will erase the play here but, notice the Eagles are once again lined up unbalanced into the boundary.


Mark Ennis [8:35 PM]:

Tell us more about the exciting centers in the NFL, Chris…


Stephen White [8:35 PM]:

Nice hit by peppers on Foles


Stephen White [8:35 PM]:

I also don’t trust the Bears defense these days. I do like Ratliff at nose tho


Stephen White [8:34 PM]:

Thats called outthinking yourself


Ryan Nanni [8:33 PM]:

(lights PUT IN MCCOWN fire)


Stephen White [8:33 PM]:

Did they really put Forte on Trent Cole one on one? WTF?!


Charlie Gebow [8:33 PM]:

Jay Cutler falling down is just… satisfying


Stephen White [8:33 PM]:

Cutty showing the sloooooow juke move outside lol


Mark Ennis [8:32 PM]:

THE Louisiana Tech University”. As in, no no, not the one coached by Skip Holtz.


Stephen White [8:31 PM]:

I still dont trust the Eagles defense


Mark Ennis [8:30 PM]:

Pretty excited to watch this game and cuss as I think about how the Bucs almost had Chip Kelly :( :(


Ryan Nanni [8:30 PM]:

Marc Trestman and Chip Kelly might be the nerdiest matchup possible.


Stephen White [8:28 PM]:

@Run Home Jack


Ryan Van Bibber [8:28 PM]:

@Run Home Jack the Bucs and the Rams played the most exciting meaningless football game of the year


Ryan Nanni [8:26 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber Are the Bucs still alive


Ryan Van Bibber [8:25 PM]:

Cardinals, Chargers alive in playoff race

The Arizona Cardinals knocked off the Seahawks in Seattle to stay alive in the playoff race. In the AFC, a Chargers win combined with losses by the Dolphins and Ravens keeps means the final playoff spot won’t be decided until next week.


Ryan Van Bibber [8:25 PM]:

and for anyone trying to make sense of it … http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2013/12/22/5231710/nfl-playoff-picture-2013-afc-nfc-standings


Ryan Nanni [8:25 PM]:

Oh, hello there. Didn’t see you, as I was busy writing my RUSSELL WILSON, HISTORY’S GREATEST FRAUD column.


Ryan Van Bibber [8:23 PM]:

what a day!


Stephen White [8:21 PM]:

Good Football Evening folk!
