I can't take the anxiety anymore ,....... GO Bears ! !
I am ashamed to admit it, but tonight (right now) I'm watching the pre-season game for the 3rd time because I can't believe what I saw in that game. Great blocking.
I'm still in shock over the great blocking in that game.
It's like I can't bring myself to REALLY believe a Bears team can block this well. Man, even the WR's were throwing wicked blocks (even B.Marsh was sacrificing his body to block guys). We've been raving about the rookie's on the right side, and they have been great, but how about Bushrod & Slauson? They looked like animals out there. Even Garza looked serviceable.
I'm pumped. Can't wait to watch this season unfold.
RUB it in have to to get a converter box for recording,.... went antenna back in June
I'm LIT ! !
I have a feeling were going to be seeing an offense where EVERYONe gets in the game and if I am not mistaken (correct me If I am wrong) THAT is the premise of the WCO ,.. SPread the ball around
Now the D They already needs a new cage,.... their current cage isn't Bearish enough any longer
This why Forte is so excited. He even said he hasn't seen the line push like this before they are actually pushing the line back which is a hallelujah moment for the Bears.
Whoa there, nelly.
Dont forget that part.
True, here it comes BUT when have the Bears looked this methodical when disposing of a bad team like this offensively wise?
Dont get me wrong, looking good is looking good. And you cant be good if you look bad to begin with.
Still, i caution to temper that enthusiasm with a reminder that it was the gawd-awful raiders that we tore up. In pre-season. They still have to prove themselves against stiffer competition when the season kicks off.
I hear you. But how many times did we see the Bears play against lousy teams and we didn't look very strong offensively this looks different.
We can't control who we played in preseason at this point. To be honest, I'm glad we had some warm ups for a new coach/scheme.
Personally, I think the switch to zone blocking is the exciting part. The improved players is a "jury still out" thing, but I'm encouraged there too. Zone blocking alone gets us an extra 3rd down conversion or two per game, and in my book, a goal line TD or two also. How many f'n FG's have we kicked from inside the opponents 10 yard line? How many games did we lose by less than 10 points? A couple more 3rd down conversions/game means the defense is on the field for 5 less minutes. An extra red zone TD or two means we lose a couple less games. Scheme alone could be the difference maker.
Zone blocking = reason for excitement alone.
ugh that stadium looks like shit for what they paid for it....
no we cannot control who we played, but we cannot control who we'll play in the reg season either, and it's MUCH tougher competition; that's why I'm worried.
