The Sad Things Is The Chicago Bears Are What I Thought They’d Be Just Another Average Team Behind The Arm of A Much Overhyped QB ‘nough Said !

There comes a time when you’ve got to call a spade , a spade and a shovel , a shovel. And as the old adage goes “……….if it walks like a duck and quacks like duck . Then it has to be a duck. It can’t be anything else now, can it ” ?

So what are we to make of the much hyped Chicago Bears (4-4) and their equally over-hyped and their said to be talented star quarterback , Jay Cutler ? Much has been made as to what the Pro Bowl caliber quarterback would bring to the table for this Lovie Smith coached team. And the truth of the matter is, not one of those much heralded claims has yet to pan out for the Bears this season. If anything, Cutler and the Bears have been average at best. And for the likes of the talking dunder-heads and paeans within Bristol, Connecticut at ESPN , who hyped up the Bears after the acquisition was made for Cutler in exchange for Kyle Orton being shipped to the Denver Broncos (6-2). My question would be , who’s eating crow now ?

And when looks down the roster of the Chicago Bears , one can’t help but ask. Why is a team, said to be laden with so much alleged talent continue to struggle the way that it does ? It’s not as if Smith and his coaching staff are mediocre. Clearly the problem with the Chicago Bears, lies in the fact that this team has yet to find its rhythm and play with consistency. Furthermore , there appears to be an apparent lack of leadership on the field of play. And if Cutler, as has been often pointed out wants to be seen as an elite quarterback in the NFL. Then it doesn’t mean just being able to toss the ball like a gunslinger in a shootout. It also demands that he leads a team with presence and authority. And that’s something that he’s yet to do, despite his time spent in the league.

It is tough enough that the Bears have to go up against a rejuvenated Minnesota Vikings’ team led by that ageless wonder Brett Favre , with the league’s best running back Adrian Peterson in tow. And what with the lackluster performances by the Green Bay Packers and the underwhelming Detroit Lions. It was thought that the Bears would pose some sort of threat to the Vikings within the division. Well, that hasn’t been the case , nor is it likely to be ! The Chicago Bears have been so diabolically atrocious, that if the situation continues to get any worse, then Lovie Smith’s own future might be in danger. And this coming from a franchise ,barely three years removed from its appearance in SBXLI. Where the team would go on to lose to the Peyton Manning led Indianapolis Colts (29-17). Manning would go on to named the game’s MVP. And the Colts’ coach Tony Dungy would become the first African American to coach an NFL team to victory in the Super Bowl. From that historical high where the two coaches in Super Bowl XLI happened to be of African American ethnicity. We’ve seen the fate of the Bears , seemingly take a nose dive into the abyss of mediocrity.

And while the fates of Cutler and Kyle Orton seem to have gone in opposite directions. One can’t help but notice how the Bears’ fans must now be feeling. As much as they may well have derided their former player. To seem him go on to play for the Broncos in the way that he has. Well, it has to have led those very same fans to question who got the better end of the deal ? Broncos’ coach, Josh McDaniels has to be happy with the play of Orton and the fact that he commands the respect of his teammates, there in Denver. Can the same thing be said of Cutler at this present moment in time ?

Statistically the Chicago Bears aren’t where they need to be as a team. On offense they rank 16th in (22.5pts-ppg),18th in total offense (332.4 yds-per game),11th in passing yds (241.9 per game), 28th in rushing (90.5 yds per game). On the defensive side of the ball things don’t actually get much better in the relevant categories either. They’re merely seem to be average at best ,with them allowing 23.9 pts per game(rank 22nd), 326 yds of total defense (rank 15th), passing yds allowed 206.5 yds per game (rank 12th), rushing yds allowed 119.5 per game (rank 21st). And overall as a team they barely register a blip on the charts as a mainstay in the pertinent categories.

One might question the coaching of Lovie Smith and that of his coaching staff . Wherein, he’s assisted by Defensive Coordinator, Bob Babich and on offense by Ron Turner , who oversees the offensive duties as the team’s Offensive Coordinator. There appears to be no real unison between the contingents on either side of the ball and how they apply themselves to the task at hand. And this may well be one of the inherent problems for the team, as a whole. As to how they’ll go about remedying the factors that have arisen. Well, that’s down Smith and his staff.

Bears’ Harris apologizes for punching defenseless player

Associated Press

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Saying he was embarrassed and that he has to control himself, Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris apologized Monday for throwing a punch at Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Deuce Lutui.

Harris was ejected on the fourth play from scrimmage of Sunday’s game after he and Lutui wound up on the ground on a run play. Harris apologized to teammates, Bears fans and to Lutui.

“I was embarrassed, especially for my actions,” Harris said. “I apologized to him yesterday, called Larry (Fitzgerald) and had a chance to apologize to him. I just wanted to apologize to my fans first off, and the little kids out there that saw that action. I shouldn’t have behaved in that manner, and I apologized to my teammates, and I’ll make up for it.”

The Bears’ defense has big problems following a 41-21 blowout loss to the Cardinals and they start with Harris. The three-time Pro Bowl player could be suspended by the league.

“No excuse,” coach Lovie Smith said. “Whenever you do something to get kicked out of a football game, a tough game like that where you need everyone, it’s never a good thing. Tommie realizes he screwed up.”

The loss of middle linebacker, Brian Urlacher , who’s viewed as the heart and soul of the team. It has meant that the Chicago Bears have had to make use of players such as Hunter Hillenmeyer and Nick Roach to fill that immense gap, that Urlacher proceeded to fill on the Bears’ defense. And with the ten year veteran being lost to the team for the season. Well, filling that gap has proven to be something of an immense problem. It was felt that they might have pursued Derrick Brooks, formerly of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a stop gap , for the position. But it would appear that it wasn’t necessarily a direction that they wanted to pursue. A tell-tale sign, if ever there was one. Replacing an often injured veteran with another it’s known is on the downside of his career. It never seems to work out and that was the primary thinking behind not pursuing Brooks.

Ron Turner as the team’s offensive coordinator , has at his disposal, the talents of Devin Hester, Matt Forte , Garrett Wolfe , Earl Bennett and Greg Olsen. But either through the accompanying injuries or the mere fact , that there seems to be nothing going right for the Chicago Bears. As they labor under the pressure of having live up to expectations of the Bears’ fans and the community at large. These are some very trying times for the franchise,the fans and no doubt for Lovie Smith ! The team’s offense is anemic and Jay Cutler hasn’t shown anywhere near the perceived form that many believe that he has. And in Cutler’s case, when much of that hype, comes from the mere fact that you felt you were in the same class as former Broncos’ great, John Elway. You can well understand why it is now, that some are of the belief that the Bears have been sold down the river, in acquiring the player.

Much has been made, that Jay Cutler is a Pro Bowl caliber quarterback. And while that may be true , what in essence is the Pro Bowl anyway ? I mean, there’s nothing at all tangible in making an appearance there. The game itself is meaningless and the accolade, though thought to meaningful , isn’t really acknowledgment by one’s peers. It’s merely the NFL’s idea of throwing a party , once the regular season has ended and also rewarding the players . As if they’re not already well rewarded financially,to begin with ? Cutler , to my mind is everything that personifies what’s wrong with a player who believes that he’s capable of leading a team. But in essence, he has yet to show the qualities that are needed in achieving that success. Time and time again, he’s mentioned as being amongst the elite quarterbacks within the NFL. To my mind, that’s akin in trying to ascertain that Rosie O’Donnell shares the same beauty traits of Halle’ Berry or Megan Fox for that matter ! It just ain’t gonna happen ! And Jay Cutler is not amongst the elite quarterbacks within the NFL ! ‘nough said !

I Bitch Slapped Your Mama And She Enjoyed It, So Get Over It ……..

Well last night proved to be something of an eye opener as the two best teams in the AFC West faced off against one another in a divisional match up. The Denver Broncos (6-0) squared off against the San Diego Chargerss (2-3) in a game that would tell us a great deal about both teams and the direction they were heading in. In the NFL this season so far, we’ve seen a great deal to surprise us and a great deal that we’ve all found to be rather disturbing , to say the very least.

Chargers'  quarterback   Philip  Rivers (17)   is  about to  be  sacked  by  Broncos'  line  backer   D J Williams     in  last   night's  game   played   Qualcomm  Stadium  in  San  Diego   ,  California.   The  Chargers   would   go  on  to  lose  the  game  to  the  Broncos  34-23   ,  with  the  Broncos  remaining  unbeaten  within  the  league.       picture  appears  courtesy of   ap/photo/  Denis  Poroy   ..................

Last night in some ways proved to be sobering but if you happened to be Chargers’ fan. Then I’d have to say that you can’t have been too pleased by what you saw from this Norv Turner coached team. The San Diego Chargers while showing some resiliency were never truly in this game. They were outshone by Josh McDaniels’ team and the way they applied themselves to the task at hand. And with the notable play of Broncos’ players Kyle Orton, Brian Dawkins, Brandon Marshall, Elvis Dumervil and Eddie Royal . One could see why this was going to be an extremely torturous night for the San Diego Chargers.

Broncos'  punt  and  kick   returner   Eddie  Royal  on  his  way  to  a  touchdown   against the   San  Diego  Chargers   in  last  night's  game.  It   would   be  one  of  two   touchdowns  scored  by the  player.   He   scored   a   TD   on  a  kick off  return   and  then  another   on  a  punt   return.  Royal   would   join  the   select  few  of  only   11  players  to  have   achieved  a similar    feat  in  an   NFL  game.      picture  appears   courtesy  of    ap/photo/ Richard  Haskill   .................................

It’s been said that the Broncos’ strength has been its defensive line . But I’d also state that their offense is not something that ought to be overlooked. As they’ve a passing attack that is as good any other elite team within the NFL . And their run offense is not as bereft talent as some might believe. Not when you’ve got a willing young rookie in Knowshon Moreno to play alongside such seasoned veterans as Correll Buckhalter and LaMont Jordan . But this wasn’t solely about the individuals mentioned as it was more to do with a team effort , more than anything else. The Broncos systematically had their way with the Chargers and they were made to pay for their lax play several times over.

The San Diego Chargers for their part seemed initially up to the task. But the errant play and missed tackles proved to be costly. But what was even more disturbing was the lack of presence in the play of Chargers’ linebacker Shawne Merriman He’s said to be the glue that holds this defensive line together. Well based on last night’s evidence, I’d say that Merriman and the rest of that defensive line ought to be due for the glue factory. They’ve moved with all the adeptness of a three legged horse that was due to be euthanized. There seemed to be no urgency in their play. And what became more apparent was that once the Broncos attained a lead that they would never relinquish. The more the Chargers’ defense and the rest of the team seemed to give up hope. The more inevitable it became the game was was beyond their reach.

I don’t know whether or not this is a reflection of the coaching of Norv Turner. But most definitely this team has now lost focus and is most definitely bereft of leadership on and off the field. It certainly isn’t now coming from either the team’s quarterback Philip Rivers , nor is it coming from their talented running back LaDainian Tomlinson. The latter of whom, was replaced late in the game because in Turner’s eyes, he wasn’t productive enough. The player showed his displeasure by strolling the sidelines and being vocal about being replaced in the game by teammate, Darren Sproles.

At (2-3) , the San Diego Chargers now face the daunting task that they have to turn their season around rather quickly , if they’re retain any semblance of respect , to it. They were viewed as the prohibitive and presumptive favorites to win their division. Given the fact, that other teams within the division were in some disarray. But who could’ve foreseen that the Denver Broncos would be the surprise team of the league , within the NFL ? Never mind the fact that the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders , still seem to be mired in mediocrity, in terms of their on field presence and play ! But these are the things that makes the NFL so appealing but yet at the same time so appalling . But that would be especially true of the AFC West, which may well be the worst division in all of the NFL ?

Now with the resultant loss to the Broncos 34-23 and the fact that, the Chargers are now left in an untenable position within the division. It has to be said that the team and in particular its manager Norv Turner and GM, A . J. Smith face some very pressing issues concerning the team’s morale and overall the shape of its roster . With 4:00 p.m today being the NFL trade deadline , it remains to be seen whether or not the Chargers will be amongst the movers and shakers making a change in their team’s personnel. One way or another, something needs to be done with regard to the team. It might not be what their fans had hoped to see at this juncture but at the same time they’ve been somewhat presumptuous in thinking that they would have the division all to themselves. Little did they know that they’d be bitch slapped about like a woman of ill repute. And when it’s all said and done it looks as of based upon last night’s evidence. They may well have enjoyed that can of a_s whupping bestowed upon by the Broncos , just a little too much for their fans’ own liking. I mean it was characterized in the players’ demeanor after the game. They merely shrugged it off as if it were just another day at the office. Seemingly, unperturbed as to what it may well have meant to their season.

Suffice to say that’s only to be expected from a Chargers’ team that has been so full of itself over the last few years. They’ve yet to prove to the rest of the league and fans around the NFL that they’re as good as they make themselves out to be. ‘nough said !

The $ 1 Billion White Elephant In The Room , To Be More Precise Sitting In Arlington Texas

He may well be the most despised owner in all of the NFL. But the Dallas Cowboys’ Jerry Jones is the consummate showman. Anything that he deems fit and appropriate that’ll place his name and more to the point that of his Dallas Cowboys in the limelight. Then as far as he’s concerned the rest of the whole world can go to hell. And that means if he’ll fall afoul of the NFL. In Jerry’s world …….it’s his way or the damn highway . Make no mistakes about it whatsoever. As that’s the way he treat his peers and subordinates.

With the gargantuan billion dollar stadium having been opened up to much public debate and a certain amount of controversy. I can only think to myself wouldn’t it be of even greater benefit to Jones and the Cowboys’ fans if they actually had a worthwhile on-field product that their fans could laud over ? Instead they’ve been served up a trite piece of garbage and with a quarterback whose backbone may well be as yellow as any, as they come. Much has been made of the ‘special talents’ of Tony Romo . But until he’s able to lead this team with authority , he’ll be lauded for his known association with the likes of Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson , respectively. And when that essentially has become the pinnacle of your notoriety within the NFL. Then you can only but assume the only way to go , is essentially ….. up from there .

In yesterday’s showdown with the AFC West division leading Denver Broncos (4-0) . The Cowboys essentially showed us all on national television that they’ve no stomach for a fight , when they’re called upon or even placed in a situation of adversity. If anything this team seems to mirror the gullible hokum persona of its coach Wade Phillips . And for the coach who has become about as eloquent as an inebriated drunk when questioned as to what ails this team. It’s now clear for all to see that the franchise and ownership are clearly at a crossroads. We can no longer continue to make excuses for a team that repeatedly comes up short and for want of a better a word just under-performs. And what of Jones you might say ? Well Jerry would have you believe that he’s got everything under control and there’s nothing at all to worry about.

As alluded to earlier the events that took place between the Cowboys and Broncos . Wherein the Denver Broncos and their stifling defense upended the Dallas Cowboys 17-10 . This has essentially paved the way for what we now know about the two teams. The Broncos under first year coach Josh McDaniels can play football, despite much of the off-season and preseason turmoil that surrounded the team. For the Cowboys , however , they may well be now doing it all with smoking mirrors. I get the impression that illusionist Criss Angel wouldn’t at all be uncomfortable in the presence of the Cowboys. But then again , Criss Angel hasn’t been known to make as any boobs as the Cowboys have been known to , as of late.

The Cowboys we’re led to believe are a potent offensive weapon that Romo ought to be able to make full use of the artillery made available to him. However , when you’ve got a quarterback who at this present moment in time is more liable to shoot himself in the foot. Rather than making use of the weapons that he’s afforded. You can well understand one of the many reasons that the hype surrounding this team is no longer justified. Their running game yesterday was all but obsolete. And their much vaulted defense was nowhere to be seen ,as the Broncos ran the Cowboys’ secondary ragged. Much of what we gleaned from the Broncos’ victory are borne out in the game stats . Romo played a with all the wantoned abandonment of of a cavalier . Whereas, his counterpart Kyle Orton was secure his distribution of the ball amongst his teammates. Romo’s two fumbles and an interception proved to be costly for the Dallas Cowboys. Never-mind the fact that he overthrew his receivers in trying to stretch the field and continually threw into double coverages ,expecting his teammates to pull off the spectacular play.

One quarter of the way into the season and one could suggest that the Cowboys now face an uphill battle within the NFC East. And with the likes of the Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) , New York Giants (4-0) and Washington Redskins (2-2) all seemingly finding their footing. It’s self evident than they can ill afford anymore major slip ups as the season progresses. Much of more of the same and we might as well write off the team for all that it’s worth. And judging by the billion dollars spent on the edifice in Arlington Texas. What price would say that the Cowboys as a team is now said to be worth ? Do bear in mind that their presence in the postseason has been limited but one playoff win in the last decade. Not much to be proud given the team’s history and legacy we’re led to believe.

Hype is one thing but being over-hyped just isn’t worth it, much like that $1 billion white elephant that has been constructed there in Arlington , Texas to begin with. So what price are you prepared to pay or even offer for the privilege of owning the Dallas Cowboys ? Or perhaps like the vast majority of us you’d rather just see this franchise go up in flames ?
