The Bears manhandled us. We've been fortunate not to face too many great defensive fronts this season. Detroit was physical upfront too but their secondary is soo bad we were still able to win. We don't fair well against those type of teams. I see a scary game playing against Watts and Houston's front 7 coming up. Lucky for us we have the easiest schedule in the NFL and play in perhaps the weakest division. Luck is fine with pressure off the ends because he can step up in the pocket...but if you put pressure in his face and he can't step up....he makes A TON of mistakes. This is just how it is for all NFL qbs. Brady, Peyton, Brees...you let them have a clean pocket or room to step up they are money....if you get pressure up the middle...get them off their mark...they are merely mortal. Chicago has just been desimated by the injury bug and their o-line is worse than ours...we have just done a better job of having the next man up do his job.

the weakest division is the AFC EAST, other than the Pats the rest are just fiting to be around .500

I might argue that the AFC West is even worse. It's close, though.

I live near Chicago and the vast majority are Chicago fans so I hear about it all the time. My answer to that is it is a good thing it was the first game of the season, they wouldn't win now....and they don't argue much.

Remember when we lost to Jacksonville?

The dark days.....1-2 and down 18 at the half to Green Bay...coach was in the hospital and the Packers were almost laughing at us....

you could make a movie about it...

How about 2-3 after getting smashed by the Jets.

And then proceeding to win 7 out of our last 8 games, with Arians at the helm. Luck is still being talked about as a MVP candidate.

No way, AFC West. At least the Jets are still in contention for the playoffs. Bills and Dolphins are 5-8.

The AFC West is a complete joke, 10 combined wins excluding Denver. This is why Denver is incredibly overrated and has basically been dominated against good teams (pats, falcons, texans).

broncos could be dangerous though because their players might be fresher down the line

Yeah but it was still a tough matchup week 1 in the "new era." We might be able to take them now though.....

People often say how tough the NFC North is and our Colts went 3-1 vs. them. Not too shabby at all Colts. :)

    • Jones is a Fat T_u_r_d anyway! Cut him now, he would be injured before the mid-season point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • I don't know ColtsBlue.  Cheater? its the physical violence stuff that really hits me hard. no pun intended
    • Very likely not before 2021... in the NFL.  It will go to CBA negotiations.
    • OK, but just what does it make someone who violates this-
      The Anabolic Steroids Control Act of 1990 placed anabolic steroids into Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) as of February 27, 1991. Under this legislation, anabolic steroids are defined as any drug or hormonal substance chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens, progestins, and corticosteroids) that promotes muscle growth.   The possession or sale of anabolic steroids without a valid prescription is illegal. Simple possession of illicitly obtained anabolic steroids carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a minimum $1,000 fine if this is an individual’s first drug offense. The maximum penalty for trafficking is five years in prison and a fine of $250,000 if this is the individual’s first felony drug offense. If this is the second felony drug offense, the maximum period of imprisonment and the maximum fine both double. While the above listed penalties are for federal offenses, individual states have also implemented fines and penalties for illegal use of anabolic steroids.   Cheater? Law Breaker? What?    Termination capability is written into the PEDS policy, at the discretion of the Commissioner and team.  But 4 games and no termination on first offense seems reasonable, IMO.  But even if Jones returns and plays the best D of all players in the league {snicker}, he is ineligible for the Pro Bowl and other such honors for 2016.  This happens to every player suspended for PED use for or during the season.
    • I agree 100%. His arm had given out on him.  He couldn't throw deep with any accuracy and he couldn't run, so it was very easy to scheme against him.  It was just time to move on. I think we got our money's worth out of him.
