Default Week 8: Lions @ Bears

Rematch time!!

Vasher and McGowan both injured. Josh Gattis is the backup safety at both positions. Trumaine McBride to start again at corner.

*gulp*

Garrett Wolfe is finally inactive, considering they never use him anyway it makes sense, though if Benson or Peterson gets hurt we're in a bind. Eight defensive lineman are active.

Only Lions injury of note is Kalimba Edwards.

Meh....our troubles in the red zone continue again. Not going to be good enough against an offense like the Lions.

******* christ Gould misses again.

This if ******* dog ****. Archuletta needs to be benched ASAP. He has no coverage skills at all. We have ******* D-Linemen pass rushing on ******* run downs. We need more Adams and less Walker. McBride must be a practice hero cause he doesn't show up in games. But then again, he is a a 5'9" 7th round pick going up against ******* Roy Williams.

And our offense has blown two easy opportunities. That was a stupid ass play call/decision that lead to that pick as well. Also, nice to see our OLine decide not to block as well.

I forgot that we have no depth behind him. We just need someone who can actually cover a god damn receiver.

I'm usually not one to overreact but I'm starting to call for Bob Babich's head. This defense is ******* terrible compared to last year.

Also, we could use a safety.

Wow... a lot of people said that Archuleta couldn't cover... but... are you kidding me? That play in the 1st quarter against Roy was pathetic.

I think the Va Tech game should take a little wind out the Ryan is overrated sails. Woodson is a complete mismatch for this team, and I'd take Ryan over Brohm.

As much as a franchise QB would be nice, I'm not sold that it's the most logical pick.

I wish you could draft a heart, because right now this team has none. It's not just a matter of a need for talent infusion. I mean..how do you go from a top 5 defense to......that?

At no point did I see a team that really cared. That's by far the most dissapointing thing.

can we draft the wizard of oz? I mean our team could get a heart, Daniel Manning can get some courage, our QB can perhaps get a brain...

We need to draft a safety. Archuleta sucks in pass coverage, but isn't bad in the box. D Manning is just bad. We just need to get healthy on Defense. Depending on how Dvoracek rehabs, we really don't need to sign/draft anyone else on Defense (except resigning Briggs). We just need an offense that can keep them fresh.

Offense...man is the o-line showing its age. They are embarrassing to watch. Berrian is still too soft and Griese has no arm. Benson ran hard today at least. Angelo and co have some major decisions to make on offense. We could see new faces at every position next year, aside from TE.

I think this season is the result of Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith getting cocky. Both of whom seemed to have this thinking over the off-season that they could lose key role players and just fill in their guys. Letting Rivera walk was a bad move, and it shows arrogance on Lovie's part. Letting half of our depth in the defensive backfield walk was idiotic. Not addressing the oline and drafting Garrett Wolfe were bone head moves and we're paying for it.

Speaking of the OLine, did anyone see what C. Smith did to Tait in the 4th quarter?

Holy ****. That was brutal.

Letting Ron Rivera go was not a bad move. It was the right move. Babich was bound to take over and it was best to make the transition right away. Plus, after all, Lovie runs the D primarily anyway.

I'm not sure letting Rivera go was a smart move though, bears D hasn't been it's old self this season.

Not addressing the oline and drafting Garrett Wolfe were bone head moves and we're paying for it.
Eh....I don't want to overeact too much here.

I mean...I really liked Todd Johnson, and Chris Harris is an ok player, but would I love having them start either? Not really.

Babich clearly seems overwhelmed right now, so I don't question that. But I'm not upset about letting Rivera go as he was basically pimping himself out during the last two playoffs. And I don't recall too many people here damning the move at the time.

Clearly we need to draft some youth on the line, but I wouldn't take back the Olsen pick at all. After that there wasn't a whole lot to get excited about. Ugoh at #37 would have been nice, but the trade down was a smart move.

Wolfe was a terrible pick, no argument there.




My biggest beef this offseason was two things, which I questioned at the time.

The Darwin Walker trade and signing made no sense. Why are we paying a backup DT this much money? It still makes no sense to me at all.

The other move was making Lovie a top 5 paid coach. I understand it's a move they had to make to save face, but he's an average coach at best.

I think LT would be a wise choice for the Bears if a good one is available. Watching Corey Smith spear John Tait to the ground must've been embarrassing.
