The Bears should apologize to the paid attendance.
Disclosure - I fucking hate preseason games. I hate exhibition games. And I hate all-star/pro bowl games.
If the game does not count, don’t play it.
End of story.
But as you eloquently wrote (nice post), Bears fans ponied up good coin, time, expense and threat of being struck by a lightning bolt to watch that shit last night.
That was not a football game.
Hell, it barely qualified as a fucking practice.
I don’t really care about the outcome. I don’t care about the Bears trotting out guys that are going to bag groceries next week either.
I get the point of preseason. Evaluate your talent. See where you are. And move forward.
The Bears ballyhooed about a major shakeup for this season. The selling point was a new offense. The selling point was a still premiere defense.
For fuck’s sake, the selling point was the SUPER BOWL.
And you don’t even give those fans a fucking series with some sort of semblance of a starting lineup?
Don’t want to play Quitler? Under those slop conditions, I’ll give it a pass.
Anyway, Quitler doesn’t want to get dirty too soon. Plenty of time for that in regular season. Exhibit A - Jamarcus Webb is STILL wearing a Bears uniform.
The 3 points on offense bother me LESS than the 30+ giving up against Caleb Fuckin’ Hanie and the rest of the castoff QB crew.
Seriously WTF was that about?
The highlight of the night?
Yeah, the guy has speed.
But where the fuck are the steroids?
JFC, hit the weight room already. This is the NFL son.
So if this was all for evaluation, what the hell was Lovie Smith doing last night?
Same fucking blank stare. Head down. Jacket bundled up. Looking bored as usual.
Marinelli was at least animated. He should be. The defense (all units) fucking sucked.
And for fuck’s sake, what the hell is going on with Brian Urlacher? EXCUSED ABSENCE? What is that code for? Fucked up knee or extended menstruation?
Does anyone REALLY BELIEVE Mike Tice is running the offense? What offense?
The Bears could NOT even execute simple running plays.
Does anybody want a job with this offense? Sure as hell didn’t look like it. Except maybe that dude Summers. And Sanzenburger(or however the fuck you spell it) auditioning for a job in the AFL.
That wasn’t hiding an offensive package. That was just an offensive display of a piss poor unprepared offense that was whipped by Denver’s defense.
Now how the hell can the Denver Broncos bring aboard a new quarterback, completely change the complexion of its organization and BE MORE READY than Lovie Smith’s fucking team?
Coach’em up? WHEN? Camp Lovie has been anything but annual dumb quotes from Darryl Drake.
The Bears win games DESPITE Lovie Smith. Not because of him.
Last night meant nothing obviously. But the franchise still embarrassed itself in front of its paying customers.
One final mentioning - Hey Jim Miller, you are blowing up faster than Jerry Lewis. Lay off the prednisone for awhile before you explode. Fat fuck.
