Remember when the Bears crushed us in September?

Recommended Posts

Now, they're 8-5 and nearly as out of business as the NHL....

..and weve gone from the outhouse to the penthouse... :thmup:

Funny how the wind blows...

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. :)

    • It’s gonna be a very good football team. With the right coaches the sky is the limit for an Andrew luck Led team with a good defense and o line
    • There is a big debate over here about this subject as well, when a soccer team fails, is it the players fault or is it the way they are coached. More often than not it is the coach that is fired and the players stay. Taking Doyle as an example Was he in the correct place to make the catches - Yes Was the ball thrown to him in a way that allowed him to catch it - Yes So how can it be the coaches fault that he dropped/fumbled the ball as often as he did?   That said it is the coaches responsibility to rally and inspire the players when things are going against them, from what I saw last night Pagano did not seem capable of doing this, especially when he saw history repeating itself in the closing stages of the game.   He should have been doing what it took to make the players aware of the consequences of another defeat rather than pick up the pieces after it happened.   I think the only thing that will make Pagano leave is if the revenues flowing into the team take a dip and the fans turn against him (if they haven't done so already), I do not like to see any-one getting the sack in any walk of life, but I do not think if he were to go he would need to "sign on" with the type of payoff he would received.   As I have said before, I watch from afar, but even from here things do not look good.
    • Competent being the key there... we're SOL in that regard.
    • This is not the Titans of yesteryear. They probably look at the Colts and say the exact same thing. Don't fool yourself, Indy is not that good right now unfortunately . Tenn has great running backs, a vey solid offensive line and MM has only gotten better each year and is very talented. They are better than the Colts.
