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]:


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]:


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]:


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]:


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

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]:


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.

Oh No Romo [10:02 PM]:

Hey, more late afternoon games!

Mark Ennis [10:01 PM]:


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]:


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]:


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

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

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]:


Stephen White [8:57 PM]:

McCoy is just unfair.

Ryan Van Bibber [8:57 PM]:


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

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]:


Ryan Nanni [8:41 PM]:

1st 9:54

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 …

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!
