EMERGENCY BEARS BUNKER THREAD
ALL BEARS FANS REPORT IN
>peyton fucking manning wins another ring
>it's with the fucking broncos who gave us Jay fucking Cutler
>seeing Peanut and Olsen in despair
Fuck this is just not a good time for us at all.
GET THE FUCK IN HERE
>buncos get an owl
>we're stuck with shitler
It's not fucking fair.
>we got the coach who was holding the Broncos back
>Gase, who squeezed life from the corpse of Peyton Manning is gone
It's only going to get worse. Now begins the "free agent bust" phase of the offseason.
>broncos trade away a shitty qb and eventually get a good one to win the owl
>burrs keep the shitty qb and continue to be shitty
sounds perfectly fair to me. no one to blame but yourselves for keeping cutler
Before you see the flag and dismiss this opinion, read my shit first
>Started watching NFL because I couldn't sleep and the games are on late at night here
>Picked a side to bet on and chose da burrs because bears are the sickest animal
>Didn't really give a shit or follow them that closely, but always cheered for them when I watched their games
>Over the last season, really started to identify with them because they remind me of my football team
>Proud history, loyal and loud fans, team with potential, but bad transfers/trades, shitty management and constantly disappointing team
I'm not exactly a Bears fan and I can't say I've 'supported' them by attending games or buying jerseys, but this team gives me the fucking feels
Not too surprising to see britbearsfans since that one game in London when they were still not an embarrassment to the sport.
Boy, that's a massive understatement.
Was only pulling for the Panthers because I would have loved to see Tillman get a ring. Guy is a class act, and all around great Bear. Other than that, gave no fucks about the actual game.
What about Greg Olsen?
Like Cutler being the worst signing in Bears history, Olsen is easily the worst trade in Bears history.
>“Pretty much what happens is, they say, ‘We don’t want you. We don’t feel like we have a place for you. We don’t have a need for you. We’re going to get rid of you,’” Olsen said. “Any time that happens to guys in our world who tend to have a lot of self-confidence, you take that to heart.”
He tells the story with a smile.
>“Looking back,” he said, “that trade from Chicago was the best thing to ever happen to me.”
Fuck this fucking FO so fucking much. Fuck.
No, Liverpool are famous chokers, it's in their blood. Great fans though, for the most part. My team is one of only 5 teams to win the PL, and the only one to get relegated after that. Almost immediately after that. And then followed 20 years of shit for dinner
I tried believing back in 2006
tried believing in 2007
tried believing in 2008
tried believing in 2009
tried believing in 2010
Almost worked, but then didn't in the worst way
tried believing in 2011
tried believing in 2012
definitely didn't work
tried my hardest to keep believing in 2013
>4th and 8
tried even harder to keep believing in 2014
didn't work to the surprise of no one
tried believing in 2015
fool me once, shame on you, fool me 2,3,4,5,6,7,8...
Yes it will.
Competent GM from outside the organization.
Had a solid year this year despite being 6-10, they were in every game all while having a defense that was starting 4-5 rookies every game (still managed to have a top 10 pass defense).
We have a competent coaching staff especially with Fox and Fangio. The offense is emerging with Kevin White debuting next to Jeffery (FT) next season and a O line that will be solidified in FA. Langford is poised to take over for Forte.
ST will be better next year with a more experienced group of players and a non fluke year from Robbie.
I think Amos and Goldman are for real. Langford looks decent but he has to work on his hands. Not so sure about Grasu, he needs some good NFL "strength and conditioning." Tayo and Kevin White (#7 overall pick... frustrating) are complete unknowns.
>(still managed to have a top 10 pass defense).
Seriously? Because from what I saw it looks like a bottom 30. Opposing wide receivers open everywhere in critical situations. Or did you already forget Blaine Gabbert's gamewinner?
the broncos broke the packers back and ended their undefeated run
that counts for something right?
>Langford is poised to take over for Forte.
He barely looks like he's poised to take over an AFL team. Face it, if football had a WAR stat, none of the players on the Bears would be over replacement level. They're either still too new or too talentless.
Number 14 overall D this year. Their rush defense still needs work but a lot of that stems from the fact that our LB's outside of McPhee were complete shit
Well Porter, Ball and Rolle are all gone. Prosinski and Callahan will kept as reserves (I like Callahan a lot as a nickel). Fuller had an up-and-down season and Amos looks like a fucking player.
Bears need 2 secondary players alone. They also need an ILB, a rush OLB and 2 DE's. It's also about time the Bears start developing a QB to take over from Cutler.
If I'm Bears, with the amount of cap room they have, I'm trying to sign Trevathan and Norman. Then Myles Jack in the first round. From then on take the best player, but the defense needs a LOT of help.
Jeremy Langford as a 4th round pick had 148 attempts for 537 yards and 6 TDs in his rookie year. He needs to work on his hands and pass blocking but that is a really good start to his career. Expect him to take a major step forward next year.
It's still really hard to believe considering a lot of the bears losses this season was due to the fact that in the 4th quarter the opposing QB whether it be Teddie, Stafford, Gabbert, Osweiler, and even almost Winston just had their way and threw at will all over the Bears secondary leading to easy late TDs that cost big games. I'm sure you remember all those.
Agree. Callahan was excellent as a nickel last year IMO. Amos needs to be paired with a Ball hawk safety. He's a player
I want Myles Jack so bad. Him, Trevathan and McPhee. Plus, I want Malik Jackson and some O-Line help. Take a S and a CB in the first 3 rounds.
Now you see why we hate the broncos so much?
They unload their trash onto us, then go on to win the owl while we are still stuck with their trash and then go on to to do the opposite of winning the owl.
he beat them this year and honestly the bears team has such huge issues in other areas, that qb is the least of my worries and any bears fan already knows this.
Pats scored 50 on our team, 50
Even a couple years ago, most teams couldn't get 2 tds against a bears d.
It is fucking disgusting.
You get anywhere near what they had in 05' and 06' and cutler is in the superbowl
Let the man hate his own team. From all the stuff I keep reading about the FO and ownership, the team deserves this. It's hard to think of any other team who's this much of a mess and to think Chicago is like the 3rd biggest market too. How could this have happened?
>team based on D
>team's legacy of 85 all based on D
>get to superbowl and almost get back to it again on D
>HEY LET'S SUDDENLY FUCK IT ALL UP FOR SOME O
>OFFENSIVE GENIUS MARC TRESTMAN
>ULTRASTAR RECEIVER BRANDON MARSHALL
>oh what do you mean the team is falling apart?
We can thank our lucky stars the Hawks have had at least some semblance of consistency this past almost decade. 3 stanley cups excuse first round exits to the canucks and coyotes.
>How could this have happened?
>You can add another running back to that list. Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott, fresh off back-to-back 1,800-plus yard seasons, told CBS Sports' Doug Gottlieb that he has two teams atop his list: the Cowboys and the Chicago Bears. Chicago's running backs coach Stan Drayton held the same title with Ohio State from 2011 to 2014.
What do you think fellas?
Urlacher, Briggs, Tillman were all getting old and they didn't have the supporting cast they had before. There was no Alex Brown, Tommie Harris, Adewale Ogunleye, Mike Brown, Nathan Vasher type players on those teams near the end.
It had run its course. Damn shame, all of them were good players and pretty cool brehs*.
*Briggs ditched another one of his wrecked cars on the Edens a couple weeks ago.
I was gonna say. If the Bears trade down and grab a pick in the late first and early second I could be on board with Elliot in the first. Then draft two defenders with the next two picks. That takes you out of the running for Jack, Ragland and some of the real defensive studs in this draft though.
Also in order for a team to overpay for the Bears pick a QB (Goff or whoever) would probably have fallen past where he should've been drafted, and I'd be really tempted to take that QB if I were the Bears.
Jack could even be gone at our pick in the first place anyway. The draft is really deep on defense though.
I'd be interested in Hackenberg in the 2nd desu. Kid has talent. He's developmental though.
start building someone up behind cutler and knowing bears oline he'll take some licks so second string will get to show his stuff most likely but they need a heavy fucking D year
Didn't watch, but dammit. I really wanted Peanut to get his ring.
I'm not worried about cutler if they keep his progress up from last season.
I'm worried about a defense that was one of the league's worst.
I would go back and hire all of our recent D greats as consultants and have them work with individual D-Coaches, Urlacker, Tillman etc. Bring them back and remold the D
>dat 33 get for Peanut
I think he's done bro. He's had season ending injuries the last 2 seasons, he has to be getting sick of rehab.
>move the team from the 3rd largest market in the league who's fans gobble up tickets and merch even if the team is in the shits
I don't know how dumb you expect these "new owners" to be.
>yfw this thread is starting to get even longer than the broncos or panthers sb related threads
Its fine to say this on 4chan, but Cubs fans in the normie world will say almost exactly your post verbatim without a hint of irony.
The spirit of Jim Hendry embued itself with Theo Epstein, causing him to trade a young, multiple all star 2B/SS under team control for middle relief, hand out obscene amounts of money to oldass John Lackey and Ben Zobrist and give $200m to a RF to play CF.
Jim Hendry did it, Cubs fans go all "woe is me, nothing ever works for us". Theo does it and it's brilliant.
I guess we'll find out, she won't be alive that much longer.
Market strength is one thing but the way illinois's economy is right now, I wouldn't count it out even with the legacy and fanbase. Business people can be mightily stupid.
since 1985 there's only a couple of franchises worse off than the Bears. That includes expansion franchises. Bears are the league's charter team, supposed to be one of the premier franchises, but are a complete joke every season.
>3 teams didnt win the owl this year
You mean the Lions who made it to the playoffs more recently than the Bears, the Lions who finished above the bears in the division, the Lions who beat the Bears 6 times in a row now?
>Business people can be mightily stupid.
I'll accept that point. From a pure business and logic standpoint, it is completely out of the question to relocate them. But as you pointed out, sometimes logic and reason goes out the window especially when its stupid old business people. I just want to put faith that people aren't THAT stupid to lose the 3rd largest market in the league.
Yeah. It's pretty clear you don't follow baseball as closely as I do. Money isn't an issue for the Cubs.
You know why Castro was traded? Because he doesn't fit into the roster. He's a low OBP, avg power and above average hit tool guy surrounded by high OBP, High power guys.
They needed superior contact and some pitching depth.
So they sign Heyward a 26 year old FA (their paying for his prime years) a high contact, high OBP, developing power and elite defense to play CF. The CF at Wrigley is the smallest in baseball so he will likely be a top 5 CF next year.
Zobrist adds much needed veteran leadership. They commited two years to Lackey, a guy who's peripherals indicate that he will age well.
The Cubs have the best all around team in baseball. It's not even debatable lol.
12 million people is a pretty huge reason to stay where you are. Even the White Sox, who draw like 5000 a game until Memorial Day, make a ton of money every year because of the market.
Those other teams in the league didn't get Jay Cutler dumped off onto them by the Super Bowl Champions
Any other questions?
They're off being high and dancing in the streets over thier win while we're in our basements ranting about our old jewish owners and hypothetical new also possibly jewish owners
>mfw """"""""""fans""""""""" unironically hiate cutler
Cutler is trying to bring this team out of the dumps. He is not the reason the team is shit
we know but like anything bandwagon people hate him for when he had most potential and wasted it. They're thinking about past and not future
jordan going to carolina and supporting cam like that deserved it. fuck all of them.
Bears should be the surprisingly solid sleeper team of the north next season
>teddy won't turn out to be a meme qb, likely just mediocre for a black guy
>some instability/uncertainty within puckers org..
>we are a far better team but hey y'all beat us (along w/the rest of the NFCN)
>burrs made a ton of acquisitions and basically have adapted the philosophy of turning down/releasing vets for younger, more unproven players (think julius peppers, thanks btw)
>mfw life long resident of Chicagoland
>If a Chicago team doesn't make their respective playoffs, I still watch the games but I don't give a single fuck
>I'm one of the rare fans that wanted the Packers to win against Arizona, then the super bowl because any representation of the midwest is good representation in my mind
>the instant it went into OT i immediately forgot about this and wanted the Packers to get dominated in OT
>mfw it happened
All memes aside, I think you're right we do have a nice chance next year. We just need a better defense and to resign matt forte. Maybe we can convince Marshawn Lynch to come thru or something
