Sadly, we have to go through another coaching/QB change or discrepancy. You would think a blind squirrel would have found a nut already. Which by the way I thought we did with a buckeye QB. They are technically nuts right? At least tgeir ugly friggn mascot looks like one.
Anyway, I was hoping we would destroy GB and then proceed accordingly but what a putrid effort. Game plan sucked on both sides and the QB once again proved he has no idea how to see or diagnose pre snap or feel the pocket during the play. Yes, some sacks were from very poor blocking effort but how many times did you yell RUN or throw the ball during the game at JF1? He just doesn't have a feel for the position and he won't ever find it, IMO.
As for Flus, come on man. Your a Toledo guy, I was rooting for you. How do you play soft D all day against this team? Even more, how do you play soft D and have wide receivers open all day. You certainly didn't have a pass rush so weren't players supposed to be back in coverage?
Gone, I want the QB and the coaches gone, as much as I really didn't want this, its here...AGAIN.
Mike Mulligan had a great point this morning when talking to Olin Kreutz on the Score. The Bears do a really good job every year of selling losing. Every year we get the "we're heading the right direction" crap and there's juuuuuussstt enough promise shown during most seasons to where the average fan can say, "yeah, I get it, I think they're just an offseason away." Then they go out there and lose to the Packers twice, finish last in the division, and the process starts over. Like Olin said, business at Halas Hall is booming. They don't really need to change a damn thing because they make money hand over fist every year like clockwork.
I've finally reached that point as a fan where I'm done with the excuses and defending of some of the people there that I typically would be. I like Eberflus as a guy and I think he's an alright coach, but for fuck's sake - this is the Chicago Bears. Have some self respect. The guy is only capable of beating other bad teams, and the teams he decisively beat this year all fired their coaches. He's fine, and maybe there is promise, but you've got the #1 pick and two picks in the top 10. You gotta get your house in order and turn that into a new dawn by resetting the clocks.
But at the same time, this is the Bears we're talking about. They like who they like and don't want to bring in anyone who upsets the apple cart, especially if they are former Bears who feel like they know better than the McCaskey family or said an ill-word of them in the last thirty years. We've seen this all play out before again and again again. There are Bears fans who have been watching this second-class franchise fuck up for 70 years and god bless 'em for having the strength to endure that long. I don't know how anyone can. I've been watching this team for 25 years and I feel like it has cultivated nothing but cynicism and despair in my heart.
