Hi All – Jules here…. by day I schedule all the fabulous commercials you hear on WGN by night (and weekend) huge sports fan. Even after yesterday I will admit to being a Michigan State Spartan and I am looking forward to seeing Brian Hoyer throw tonight. Hope springs eternal. GO BEARS!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:18 PM

already making fun of Cutler in pregame … never gets old

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:18 PM

Shaun Davis @SD2Mics and half of Down & Distance here to break down Bears/Cowboys. 

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:20 PM

When the schedule was released, who knew it would be Hoyer vs Prescott at quarterback?

#BearsvsCowboys
juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:22 PM

Full disclosure .. I am a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader reality show and I have both Witten and Bailey on fantasy teams.. but still cheering for my Bears!!! Time to Bear Down!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:23 PM

Hi Shaun!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:23 PM

Hey Julie

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:25 PM

Alright we won something already! Coins toss BEARS!!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:25 PM

Bears win the toss and will defer until the 2nd half.

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:28 PM

Bears have ambushed the Cowboys early the last two times they visited Jerry’s World and came away with “Ws”. Tonight?

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:30 PM

that is an ugly injury list.. surprised they could fit it on the screen…

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:32 PM

oh boy.. hate to start that way .. giving away 22 in one shot. Come on D!!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:34 PM

Dez Bryant is down. looks to be an ankle 

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:34 PM

Middle of Bears defense getting pushed off the ball early. Gotta stiffen up.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:34 PM

ouch!! legs aren’t supposed to fold like that. yikes Dez

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:36 PM

3rd down – key play

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:37 PM

Helllllo! Adrian Amos with the hit stick on Cole Beasley

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:37 PM

Big hit.  Looked to keep Beasley short of 1st down

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:38 PM

That was a heck of a hit – totally legal – just a killer hit.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:39 PM

looks like Bears are challenging the 1st down..

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:39 PM

I say short!!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:39 PM

Lovie Smith is 130 south on 57.

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:40 PM

4th and short coming up. Cowboys going for it

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:41 PM

Since when do they measure in feet?? weird

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:42 PM

Leonard Floyd caught in coverage against Jason Witten.  mismatch!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:43 PM

My on site pal – says it looks like a touchdown on the cowboy bigscreen

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:46 PM

darn!!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:49 PM

10 plays 75 yards on that TD drive for Cowboys.  Hardly missed Tyron Smith at Left tackle.

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:50 PM

Missed handoff to start the game. wow! 

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:50 PM

Come on Hoyer!  Do it for Spartan Nation!!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:51 PM

Not helping!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:52 PM

Great protection on 3rd down and completion to Kevin White nullified by Charles Leno penalty

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:52 PM

Well – that didn’t take long… punting .. 

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:53 PM

Short pass to Langford on 3rd and 14.  Bears will punt

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:53 PM

Lucky Whitehead sounds like a prohibition gangster

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:54 PM

Are they required to air this Kia spot every break??

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:56 PM

Come on D! Get that lame O back on the field for another shot . 3rd and 1

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20167:58 PM

what draft pick was this dude Dak?  We are making him look good

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20167:59 PM

4th rd julie….

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:00 PM

3rd down… can we stop this one?  Bear Down!!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:02 PM

Great pass breakup by Jacoby Glenn.  Prescott pass looked like a Steph Curry 3. lots of air

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:02 PM

10-0. We got this. run the ball! #Bears

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:02 PM

whew..thought we were getting a flag on that one..

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:04 PM

When will we see Jordan Howard in the backfield?

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:05 PM

did that guy say Grand Valley? Grand Rapids shout out!!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:06 PM

3rd down… come on Hoyer!!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:06 PM

not smart to bang heads without your helmet.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:06 PM

nooooope… ugh

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:07 PM

Langford taken to Church on that hit.  punt again

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:08 PM

Come on Bears.. Return of the Jedi is on TNT.. don’t tempt me.

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:10 PM

Jerrell Freeman continues to make plays all over the place.

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:11 PM

1 in the books. Bears trail 10-0.  Let’s get a stop!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:14 PM

22 plays to 6 in favor of Cowboys. Tired defense on deck.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:14 PM

I love the high and tight ball.. anybody else remember on hard knocks when they used to tell Martellus that? High and Tight Martellus!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:19 PM

17-0… Should be another entertaining postgame with Hamp, OB and Koz on WGN 720

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:19 PM

well.. that is just terrible.. 

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:20 PM

let’s start by just getting a good drive  

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:21 PM

alright! good start!  GO BEARS

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:21 PM

On cue!! There is Jordan Howard….I was wondering when we would see him

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:22 PM

take that another 1st down.. here we go

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:23 PM

Ballhandling!!! 

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:24 PM

don’t hurt my Hoyer!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:24 PM

Good drive!  Put 3 on the board hopefully

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:26 PM

17-3 Cowboys, pause that Return of The Jedi Julie

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:27 PM

huh? Al just said those were the first points for the kicker.. we did get some points in the first 2 games didn’t we?

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:27 PM

ok.. Luke and Leia will have to wait a while longer – BEARS ON THE BOARD!!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:27 PM

R.I.P. Arnold Palmer.  Currently drinking Tea & Lemonade in your honor

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:28 PM

wasn’t expecting that!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:30 PM

Offsides call nullifies Bears recovery on onside kick.  Really close call 

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:30 PM

Shoot!  McMannus took a beating for no reason – that would have been a huge play

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:32 PM

oh boy– nothing the talking heads like better than QB controversy talk.  Even my  fav Cris Collinsworth

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:34 PM

again making Dak look good.. escapes out of pressure

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:36 PM

Hey Collinsworth, Ezekiel Elliott went to HS in Missouri

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:36 PM

gotta stop that little Beasley guy

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:37 PM

Kwiatkowski pancaked Collins on the blitz

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:40 PM

It is now time to contemplate halftime snacks.. too bad I don’t have the Jerry Jones concessions to visit.. I hear the brisket sandwich at AT&T is tasty.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:41 PM

Did I mention I have Dan Bailey in FF?  More reasons to limit this to a FG

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:43 PM

That’s too easy up the middle!  24-3

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:43 PM

ummmm.. hopefully they will find some new players in the locker room at halftime.  Feel bad for the D tho.. they have been out there way too many minutes.

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:44 PM

Primetime 2 more time this year…#Vikes #Pack 

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:45 PM

Can’t they flex us back to PBS at noon on Sundays?

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:47 PM

Does the “can you hear me now” guy seems creepier now that he has returned to TV?

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:48 PM

Hi Ryan Pace — you can’t be too happy about all those “changes” right now.  

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:48 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:52 PM

Alshon… really??.. again not helping

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20168:53 PM

regroup guys!  Second half – All Bears!!

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20168:54 PM

Cowboys held the ball 21 minutes 47 seconds in the first half

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:08 PM

please be down.. please be down

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:10 PM

#caughtnotcaught

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:10 PM

Is White hurt on sidelines??

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:14 PM

Ok.. you are managing to keep me from Return of the Jedi… lets get some points!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:15 PM

1st down!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:17 PM

Langford!! Nice job Spartan!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:18 PM

1st and GOAL!!!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:20 PM

The Cowboys Stadium tour is really cool if you ever get the chance.. you get to run around on the field. Throw a ball around and selfie yourself into a frenzy. 

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:21 PM

3rd and goal…. come on guys!!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:22 PM

one more chance.. gotta go for it.. at least for the practice sake

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:23 PM

WHOO HOO!!!! Nice job Miller!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:25 PM

Still Love this Lemonade commercial!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:27 PM

Can we stop this drive?? Probably not great odds at this point

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:28 PM

3rd down… come on D!!!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:28 PM

uh oh #98 down on the field

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:29 PM

whew — already walked off – limping – but up

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:31 PM

Don’t care how cool you make the commercials.. not watching the ryder cup.. sorry NBC

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:32 PM

did I see a facemask there?

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:33 PM

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:34 PM

We finally forced a punt … and wasted!  #crap

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:36 PM

block that kick!

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:36 PM

2 touchdown differential… still amazingly within reach.

Shaunequivocal September 25, 20169:37 PM

Missed FG Cowboys still 24-10

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:40 PM

Langford Achilles?? wow – who do these guys have for a strength and conditioning coach? George Wendt?

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:41 PM

Was that a third and ten play?  noooope.  

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:46 PM

there’s those mad hurdle skills

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:47 PM

probably not worth the injury risk tho in a 24-10 game

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:50 PM

not helping….  

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:52 PM

la la la la la la… I think I hear the fat lady warming up.  

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:54 PM

ugh…. 88 yard drive for the cowboys ends with another td

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 20169:59 PM

Don’t forget to listen to Hamp, O’B and Koz on WGN Radio after the game for the professional take on just how bad this team is and WHY they are so bad.. cause .. ugh… 

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:00 PM

yes Cris .. we are desperate for good news re the Bears… but nooope.. didn’t make that catch either.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:01 PM

must be long ball practice time.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:02 PM

the only thing I need a “cushion” for is to bury my head in.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:06 PM

oh .. BTW we scored.. back to a 2 TD differential.. It could happen??

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:11 PM

Doesn’t all this rookie QB success just make the “We have to re-sign Cutler, there is no one else” talk seem all the more ridiculous?

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:14 PM

We don’t use the onside kick – but we throw all these timeouts at them,, like that’s gonna help.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:16 PM

knee was down.. but.. that would have been just typical for this game if we threw them over the first down marker.

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:20 PM

no Devin Hester on this roster

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:24 PM

we can’t pass out of a 3 man rush… wow.. ugh

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:27 PM

what have we learned tonight?  A) I should have watched Return of the Jedi B) Shaun couldn’t even watch after half time C) the Bears are 0-3 and deserve it.  Don’t know what is gonna turn this team around.  They take a shot at 1-2 Lions next week.  So maybe.. as I started with .. Hope springs eternal.. especial in Chicago Sports fans

juliesternwgnradio September 25, 201610:31 PM

Thanks for hanging out with me and WGN tonight.  Listen to the always thoughtful, insightful, spirited and very loud post game show with Hamp, O’B and Koz on 720 or your fav streaming device.  Good night all.
