Well, obviously the Fatman knew about the bad things... Bitterroot said exactly what I was feeling: "Dude... Santa cut a switch and took you out behind the barn." And the worst thing is, the obese bastard lured me out of hiding with a big old smile, and the promise that my present was too big to fit in the house...

After Devin Hester's return of the opening kick off, and Thomas Jones' long run that set up a TD, the Bears had me feeling pretty confident that they were in this game to win. By halftime, however, I was reminded of this year's college championship game.

The Colts were definitely the better team, and they deserved to win. Tony Dungy has been deserving of that ring for a long time, and it's good to see him get it. Peyton? A great QB who also deserved a ring... just not against the Bears. I used to enjoy watching him in college, and now as a pro. But he's finally moved onto my "I hate that fucker" list. Nothing personal, mind you. It's just that there was an open slot.

Why not use that on Grossman? Believe me... I've been thinking about that all year. But the kid, despite being "the worst QB ever to play in the Super Bowl," actually has talent. It's there... he just keeps hiding it. The thing is, he makes mistakes, and doesn't learn from them. Maybe this shellacking will knock some learning into his skull.

Congrats to Indy, and I look forward to free agency dismantling your team.

At least you guys had some awesome plays! I wasn't surprised at Grossman's performance, I just wonder if the rest of the Chicago fans will stick with him. I thought the Bears deserved to win that game until I saw Grossman play. You've got a crushing defense, and some good offensive players, you just need a better than average quarterback.

Besides the let-down of the Bears' loss, I also thought the commercials were lame as a whole. I noticed Godaddy used 4 slots, and was wondering what happened to the rest of the normal sponsers. Budwieser must have bought up the rest. Snickers made a funny one too. As for halftime, we muted Prince and left the room for his performance.

The Bears played down to their offense, and not up to their defense. The first half was really good and close, the missed PAT by Indy I thought would come back to haunt them.

The only good thing that came out of the Bears losing is that I don't have to deal with the obnoxious Bear fans talking about how great their team was.

I'm sorry T1G - I really am...

You know I've been ribbing ya over this, but I had to be for Peyton (being from Tennessee) and the fact that I don't like Florida (Grossman). However, in the past (the Butkus years) da Bears were my team. They probably will be again, but since Peyton missed the Heisman Trophy I wanted this for him.

Go Vols!

Oh, AW, you may be on to something there.

Re: Grossman. He was on a local radio station this morning, actually crackin' some joke about not being focused on the game. Just the ads. Yeah, not real funny. Especially this morning. His bad timing is not just limited to the field, it seems.

Damn, T1G, that's a FAR more gracious concession speech than I was expecting.

For the record, I hope that next year Grossman goes down HARD and Urlacher can eventually get that ring he deserves - whether it's with the Bears or someone else.

Ya know, he'd look GREAT in Green & Gold...

Just sayin'...

Of course all the Pats fans out here were simply irate because the Colts were in the SB and the Pats weren't... they "knew" the Pats could take out the Bears any time... heh. (isn't that why we play the game - because anything can happen?)

In any case, the morning sports guys were saying Lovie Smith should be named coach of the year for being able to keep the rest of the team from killing Rex. LOL.

Harvey, you're asking to be burned as a heretic, spouting crap like that.

Posted by: T1G at February 6, 2007 04:36 PM

Yeah Harv, the Packers could use Urlacher, but you are spouting off on a Bear's website you goof!
Besides, Urlacher needs a secondary, which GB is lacking, and a front four that dominate, which we don't have. He is awesome, but it takes a whole team to get it done. We would kill his career in Green Bay!

How odd that you were down there as these two mid-west teams duked it out. Karma, dude.
