We’re live blogging the Chicago Bears vs. the Philadelphia Eagles
Hey everyone… hope the Carm and I can keep you entertained as the Bears take on the Eagles on Monday Night (Best sports theme song ever be the way.)
Interesting match-up tonight with a lot of parallels between last year’s Bears and this year’s Eagles… an old school coach (John Fox/Doug Pederson) takes over for a coach that a lot of people thought was too smart for their own good (Marc Trestman / Chip Kelly.) The cupboard isn’t completely empty but not full either.
Wow…brutal opening series.
All the prognosticators say the key for a Bears win is getting after Wentz… They had some success against Brock Osweiler
Eagles aren’t letting them even get a chance with some quick outs. Like the choice to go for it on 4th down here.
Another game, another bad spot costs the Bears. I get not challenging it but you figured the League would have come up with a better way by now.
Not bad holding them to a field goal there considering the way the Eagles’ started the drive and the good field position.
That’s more like it… would have loved to see what Eddie Royal would have done if he had stayed healthier.
Good thing Ron Brooks can’t catch.
Remember the Gould old times
Thank you Dan. Eddie Royal is the best Bear of the season so far
Glad to see they picked up the 1 yard… too many times over the last couple of years we couldn’t get that done.
OB “What have I saidddd!!!! Throw the ball down the fieldddd!!!!!” Koz… “still catches the ball with his body.” Hamp… “Come on Leno block somebody.”
Not bad…not bad at all.
The Geico / Ice T ad is the best commercial on TV right now.
The Bears’ defense is starting to get going… good hit on the previous play, nice swarm on this play, two penalties created on the Offensive Line… good stuff.
The #Bears have inside LB’s again!!! 50 and 59 are the real deal!
Get rid of football
Massie. Rhymes with…
It’s Kevin White
Want to know how I know that I’m officially a father (besides the obvious)? When you asked what rhymes with Massie, my first thought was passie as in pacifier. #dadlife
Here comes Leonard
He almost got there… promising early returns on him.
Gruden looking to get into the Wentz family
Bears still haven’t figured out that touchbacks go to the 25
Good thing Jordan Matthews can’t catch
Good time out. Freezed him right into a make
To see more pics, like The Hamp & O.B. Show with Glen Kozlowski on Facebook
Antonio Brown at the reception desk at ESPN is the second best commercial on TV right now.
Consistent pressure coming with the Eagles in passing downs. Still good to see
Yeah Willie Young! Similar to Eddie Royal, so glad he survived to be a contributor
A Jeremy Langford sighting!
Sweet Jesus 86 fumbles in the last three years.
Wentz needs to start sliding if he wants to stay in the league.
Nice sustained drive here… and good on Kevin White being aware and reaching for that first down.
I think Cutler gets a bad rap but that was an awful turnover.
If it’s hand, that’s one thing but still… Brian Hoyer time.
Eagles just seem like the fresher, better team right now… they’re taking full advantage of the Bears’ injuries.
Was about to write about a nice stand by the defense and then…penalty.
Can’t remember a game where we’ve had this many injuries
If they have any chance of coming back here, the Bears have to look down field soon.
First time seeing Gotham Steel infocommercial… third best ad on television.
Late hit with a noodle on Gruden… 15 yards
That a boy Eddie! Once that initial Eagles tackler missed, I had a good feeling
Connor Barth can go a long way to endure himself to Chicago with a good onside kick here. Especially with that miss earlier.
That was not it.
Gruden’s face when Sean McDonough revealed he didn’t know what “Duke” referred to was priceless.
Reminder – Dan Hampton, Ed O’Bradovich and Glen Kozlowski will be breaking down the game in 5-8 minutes after the 10:30pm news.
If there’s a silver lining to a poor Bears’ outing, it’s hearing those three rip into a poor Bears’ outing.
