We’re live blogging the Chicago Bears vs. the Carolina Panthers.
Hi Everyone! Jules here to commentate on the spectacle that is Bears 2017. aka Mitch-a-palooza. Let’s see who kneels, who catches a pass or two, how good Cam is this year and what awful coaching moves the Bears can dazzle us with. BEAR DOWN!!
lots of empty seats in those upper sections…its game time peeps! LET’S GO BEARS!
How many Kalil’s do they have on that line?
Hey everyone! Dan Sugrue checking in. Hoping we can make it two in a row.
NICE!!! Cam down. Cam down!!
I love this defense. Vic Fangio is an underrated coach.
3rd and long – come on D
Darn. Hi Dan!
Hard to believe Panthers are incapable of scoring in 1st quarter, let try to keep that streak alive.
um.. did he forget that feet first slide thing QBs are supposed to do?
run D – great / pass D – not so much
That run is why the Bears needed Trubisky… that was an easy first down… no knock against Glennon but you need to make the ability to run once in a while
could it be???
WOW!!! TD BEARS – really?? did he stay in bounds??
BEAR DOWN!! Nice Bears with an early lead… too early for “It’s all happening”? :)
This Geico commercial with the ref makes me laugh every time.
gotta say I kinda want to try the Chicken nuggets quesadilla – yay marketing
I haven’t had breakfast so yeah that sounds delicious
get some food Dan – this blogging is strenuous – keep up your energy!
Obviously it’s still early but the Bears traded up for Leonard Floyd and he turning out to be a player… let’s hope the last guy that traded up for also turns out to be player.
Hahah…go to keep that energy up!
nope!! punting! Nice D
Mitch! Mitch! Mitch!!
Funny — I would think 3rd and 3 IS in fact a running down. Damn.
Interesting play call there…
Hope that D is getting rested up…quickly
Right? It’s especially one whenever you just picked up 3 and 4 on the last two…
that run defense is killing it.
“unique” – that is an interesting choice of words since we are known for terrible turf.
Cam down! Cam down!!
That’s a lot of sacks for one quarter
true that – if you have the Bears D in FF – you are probably sitting pretty right now.
whoops – but he is a RB ;)
NICE!!! sweet pass
And then two nice runs…. this is a good balance
cant take that sack Mitch. QB class 101.
Come on Connor…make up for it
nope.. that was pretty close tho considering the finger tip contact.
one Kalil brother down…
going.. going… TD!!!!!
God you weren’t kidding about having the Bears D in Fantasy… two scores and bunch of sacks
who needs an offense? BEAR DOWN!!
Welcome to Eddie Jackson’s coming out party… it’s been brewing for weeks.
ok.. I wasn’t hexing the other brother.. really…
Can you imagine though…the Bears had all those sacks and then two of the Panthers starting offensive line go down?
maybe its not Mitch-apalooza.. its Sack-a-palooza!!
ouch.. how are those knees Cam??
Fuller is having a good game
another sack.. sort of
3rd down!! key play. Lets get this defense some rest!
Man! We’ve got to find a way to get those third and longs.
time for a turn over
I was thinking that too….
I bet that Funches isn’t nearly as funny as Ron Funches
All right! Let’s eat up this three minutes and let that defense rest
definitely need a nice drive here..
WOW!! Cohen is a Running Back isn’t he? :) Awesome!!
I guess they figure we don’t have enough receivers we might as well turn our running backs into one.
whoops that didn’t work…
Can Peppers even see out of that helmet guard?
MITCH!!!!!!! TD TD TD!! Hot Damn… no need to review that..
oh man… two just short touchdowns
oh well.. fun while it lasted .. Kick the FG! couldn’t get in on 2nd or 3rd.. take the points!!
what kind of crappy classic rock are they playing??
They could always fake it… O’Donnell did have good form last week.
Nothing I like better than the trick play.. that is half the reason I watch football!
somebody probably was supposed to cover Funches..
Nice Start Bears!! Whoo Hoo!
Oh man… we got lucky there
Heck yea…that was a pretty good half of football
How about some comedy talk here at the half Dan… Seen any good live stand up lately? Did you see the new Patton Oswalt on netflix?
I like it…I haven’t seen it but Nick D said it was extraordinary… My wife and I watched the Big Sick the other night… Quality movie with some good laughs
Good to know – I will definitely put the Big Sick on my list.
We watched Patton’s new special last night – wouldn’t go as far as extraordinary, but it was pretty funny. The part where he talks to the crowd was my favorite. I thought it was brave to talk about the death of the wife and the life him and his daughter have lead since… but I thought if he was gonna go there.. he needed to address the new fiancee and how she is fitting in the plan… but that’s just me.. I am nosey like that. ;)
OK – back to football!! Go BEARS!!
no return there.. not an option
Patton seems like a guy who would understand that though…
Probably part of the reason he did it…
whew… come on Mitch
Come on Bears… you got to put a sustained drive sometime…
Our poor defense.. do they ever get off the field?
glad you got the telestrator out for that run… we could see him.. really
If we end up losing this game, it will be because the Defense will be so exhausted
ok — gotta give props for that catch.. did he have stick um on that hand?
Seriously every year, more and more one handed catches… unreal
Come on … big stop
AWESOME STOP!! don’t see turn over on downs this early too often. All Hail The D!!
Hope the staff is keeping the oxygen tanks replenished because the defense is going to need them.
Nice AWOLNATION usage Samsung.
ok — thats funny. Ian Eagle on the pizza tees
HA!! Great coverage Fuller
The rare offensive pass interference
nope – can’t do that. 15 yards hurt, but silver lining.. first Bears penalty of the game
ok – who exactly needs a car seat that is that complicated??
Hahaha… my wife and I took the plunge and got a minvan after the birth of our second daughter… the heated seats are pretty nice
heated seats… all for it.. I’ll say required in Chicago.. but that just looks confusing ;)
how come he doesn’t get the trainer tent? just got that knee out there for all of us to see
Eagle with the financial pun!
Nobody fell for that reverse except me.
man…this game is flying by. Most of the other games are still midway through third
that’s a good thing – Costco is just waiting for me to throw money at them
Hahaha… There’s a Target next door to the Costco in our neighborhood…it’s a very expensive area for us.
that is a one two wallet punch for sure
This is how my entire fantasy season is going.. I picked up Carson Palmer to replace Aaron Rogers.. now Palmer is hurt – not returning for 2nd half. ugh.
we are punted already.. that was quick.. back on D
I so hope the Justice League doesn’t suck.
That stinks about Rodgers/ Palmer… Jordy Nelson had been my most consistent player …
I think Eagle is pronouncing McCaffrey wrong… but what do I know..
and now everyone with Alexa just ordered cat food..
looks like they were wrong about that rain.
With that hair, that guy could play for the Nationals
Doesn’t it seem like Oprah is trying a bit too hard to stay in the spotlight? just get a show again… I am sure every network would give your one.
COme on D!!!!!!!
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Now we have to put a drive together of more than three downs
I concur, that’s a good goal… come on O
The O is just rusty.. they have sat on the bench so long
3rd down again… come on Mitch!
I don’t think 3 penalties was in the “good drive” plan
Come on boys…
so… 12 yards of offense in the 2nd half… I don’t think that is very good. hmmmm.
CAM DOWN! CAM DOWN!
We needed that sack
ouch! that didn’t look good
I soooo wanted a safety!
We seem to specialize in safties
did ya hear that? Per Ian, “at some point” we are going to mount a drive… hahaha
Don’t forget to tune into to WGN-AM to hear the best post game in town Hamp, O.B. and Koz will no doubt have some great commentary on today’s awesome win. Must listen for Bears fans.
Back to back wins!! wow! And a quick one!
Absolutely… you got to figure the hall of fame defensive end will be pretty thrilled with that side of the ball
Thanks for hanging out with Dan and I today… it was a fun one.
Yeah…thanks everyone! Go Bears!
Whoo Hoo – fly the W…. maybe not :)
