Bravo!! That was terrific. Through the years I have always been more impressed watching a Bears team intimidate and dominate on D than watching a shootout on O. It's just in the bloodlines for the Bears, and I don't want that to change. Now, if we have that with a top 10 O, then so be it! ;)
Most Bears fans probably feel the exact same way. It will be interesting to see if Emery/Trestman can fix the defense. We all enjoy watching Jay Cutler on offense, but if we don't have a respectable defense to go with the Jay show here in Chicago, then it will be a short tenure for Emery and Trestman. Fans understand we may not have defenses as good as we had under Lovie Smith, but they also don't want to see a defense that is pathetically weak. It was embarrassing for a lot of fans this year, to have the league watch a Bears defense that was a powder-puff D......and one of the worst defenses in the entire NFL.
And Emery (hopefully) can draft D better than he showed us with the Shea McClellen pick. We're all "hopeful" that things will get better. But I was always "hopeful" that Angelo/Lovie could get the offense figured out. They didn't. Now's the time for Emery/Trestman to show they are better than that, and can figure out the D here in Chicago. If it's just going to be the Cutler show, coupled with an abortion for a defense, I don't think most fans will be satisfied with that. And we sure won't unseat the Green Bay Packers that way.
As it stands today, I picked the SleezeHawks. Because even though Jay is no Manning, we have some great offensive weapons and Trestman. Think about it, if I said "would you take Broncos offense and keep the Bears current defense" you'd have to say no. If I said "Take the SeaHawks D, toss ours out and keep our Offense" you all would be down for it!
No reason to apologize! We all (or at least me) feels the same way.
The Bears NEVER get respect. Ever. Even if they are doing well, it's always treated half hearted. For a team that has been around almost a 100 years, I'd think we would be a little more respected. Even as early as last year we were feared on Defense. The fear of forcing turnovers, let alone SCORING on defense (the only way we stayed afloat last year) is how it needs to be. Even Hester is sometimes still feared.
I also agree with this "Manning obsession". Denver is always guilty of it. When Tebow was in town, he was the savior. I always say Denvers QB Jerseys come with velcro on the name so you can switch them out season to season. I wonder how many Tebow jerseys are at the Denver Goodwill store now?
I like that Jay is hated by so many (including some Bear fans LOL!). These cookiee cutter, pretty boy QBs make me ill.
I'm going with the Patriots. Able to find great players at a discount, genius HC, best front office in the league AND a QB that is a bit of a dick when his offense isn't any good
I disagree. When the Bears were doing well in 2006, many in the media agreed with Dennis Greene, that they were a good team, but lacked a real quarterback. That turned out to be the truth, but many prognosticators had them as being the "Buffalo Bills of the 00's", in that they were going to dominate the NFC, but have trouble winning it all.
If anything, they were being generous, and Bears fans have too high of expectations
I picked seattle, smash mouth football.
