Kevin Powell September 11, 201611:44 AM

Bears!

Kevin Powell September 11, 201611:45 AM

On the menu today: shrimp cocktail. Bloody Mary’s. Brats.

Kevin Powell September 11, 201611:46 AM

Bears WR Kevin White is active today. Tweaked a hamstring at practice this week. But looks like he’ll make his Bears debut.

Kevin Powell September 11, 201611:56 AM

Kevin Powell September 11, 201611:57 AM

Cam Meredith should probably be active after that Redbird victory yesterday. Fear the Bird.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:02 PM

K.Powell! Bears! 

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:03 PM

Here we go Jeffery.

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:04 PM

What are you eating during the game? I’m going big today. Calories don’t count on Sunday’s or the opening day of Bears season.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:05 PM

Right now, some pirate’s booty and Two Brothers “Atom Smasher”

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:06 PM

I’d recommend Miller Lite.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:09 PM

Brock is already doing better than Brian Hoyer in his Texans debut, first throw was a pick…

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:09 PM

I jinxed him!

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:11 PM

Well done. That’s an outstanding play from Porter. Bears stressed takeaways all camp.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:12 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:14 PM

How many Cutler throws before he throws a pick??  I’ll say 15 attempts…

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:14 PM

Our Bears insider Adam Hoge has a decent view. Be sure to follow him at @AdamHoge

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:15 PM

Don’t be a hater, Jeff. 6 has got this.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:16 PM

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:18 PM

That’s how you start a season/game.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:19 PM

When was the last time the Bears scored a TD on the opening play of a game or to start the season?

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:20 PM

No idea

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:21 PM

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:22 PM

Drive had a little of everything…near int from Cutler, huge pass/catch between Cutler/Jeffery and an effective running game.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:23 PM

Some where, Roe is a baffled

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:24 PM

Stings more in French…

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:27 PM

Brock throws another one, back at it Jay…

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:33 PM

I mean that is just pathetic

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:33 PM

Rookie center problems

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:44 PM

That’ll happen, I’ll take it on Fourth&1 in the first quarter of Game 1, just don’t do it on the goal line in a big game.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:52 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:54 PM

Hawktober is coming…

Kevin Powell September 11, 201612:54 PM

Cutler hanging in the pocket. Gotta love it.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 201612:56 PM

This team looks scrappy, not what I expected

Kevin Powell September 11, 20161:06 PM

Here comes a lengthy review.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20161:07 PM

Bears need to make some 3rd Down plays.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20161:07 PM

Almost impossible to defend that.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20161:08 PM

Not the play I’m referring too…

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20161:09 PM

Kevin Powell September 11, 20161:14 PM

Right in the gut. And he still gets up. But yea, he’s not tough or anything.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20161:15 PM

Dropped a gem…

Kevin Powell September 11, 20161:17 PM

Lucky break. Still time to make something happen.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20161:17 PM

Also, I’m pretty excited about the bratwurst I’m about to throw on the grill.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20161:23 PM

Gotta get points here. A must.

Violeta Podrumedic September 11, 20161:24 PM

Touch down!

Kevin Powell September 11, 20161:25 PM

Beautiful play. Bears up 14-10 with 7 seconds left in the half.

Violeta Podrumedic September 11, 20161:25 PM

I knew 13 seconds was enough time! #pow

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20161:38 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20161:46 PM

Strong 3rd Down D there…

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20161:47 PM

I’d say Kevin’s namesake blew this one…

Kevin Powell September 11, 20161:53 PM

Correct. White blew that one.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20161:58 PM

Making Kevin’s look bad

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:04 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:07 PM

Making Kevin’s look good.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:09 PM

Strong first game for Floyd.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:11 PM

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:11 PM

Big loss for Houston. Big break for the Bears.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:12 PM

Indeed.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:15 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:15 PM

In case you missed it…

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:16 PM

Refs butchered that Miller call

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:24 PM

Brutal

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:26 PM

Bears didn’t win tight games and blew a lot late last year. We’ll see if this teams any different.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:29 PM

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:31 PM

Texans blew that one. How did they not come up with that fumble?

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:34 PM

Damn, on the money from Brock.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:35 PM

He’s made some outstanding throws today.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:37 PM

Bad bad bad challenge.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:37 PM

Bears need to pick their challenges better…

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:39 PM

Coming into today, John Fox is 119-43 on challenges

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:40 PM

Plus, you factor in the timing…this late in the game. Horrible. They needed that timeout badly.

Violeta Podrumedic September 11, 20162:40 PM

I live for the commercials! So funny! http://youtu.be/iitKf4Nue_M

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:42 PM

Strong commercial.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:43 PM

The Manning commercials are on point.

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:46 PM

And that’ll pretty much do it.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:46 PM

D’oh!

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:46 PM

Pretty good first half. Bad second. Down 23-14 with 4:45 left. Yea…this one’s over.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:46 PM

We’ll it’s been fun….

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:47 PM

Yay or Nay on ‘Lethal Weapon’ reboot?

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:47 PM

Also, what doesn’t Manning endorse?

jeffcarlinwgnam September 11, 20162:48 PM

Kevin Powell September 11, 20162:49 PM
