Good morning Bears fans! I’m Jules. I work at WGN scheduling spots during the week but love me some football. I am already losing big in both my fantasy leagues- thanks Ravens – so let’s see how the Bears do. 

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:04 PM

Ben has a wife??  Really

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:06 PM

Whew?   Could have got ugly on the first play. 

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:07 PM

Is it possible Glennon is less good looking than Cutler? discuss

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:08 PM

YAYYYYYYYY!  

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:09 PM

Special teams!  Specials Teams!!  Thanks sunshine!

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:12 PM

Inside the 5… nice Howard… could we get a nice spot?  YES  1st and goal

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:13 PM

BEAR DOWN!!! HOWARD!  

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:14 PM

First lead of the season… only took 3 games… we’ll take it.. we are due.  Nice to see us make good on the turnover

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:18 PM

really… 15 yards??  I like the ref with the tater tots better than this guys

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:19 PM

two in a row? come on… pull it together

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:21 PM

darn…. oh and another penalty .. really.. 

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:22 PM

Come on D.  They gave us a down with that bad pass.. lets go

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:23 PM

3rd down!  Protect that lead! 

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:23 PM

Mike Tomlin rockin the full on beard this year.

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:24 PM

NICE!!!! Hicks way to dive on that ball! Whoo Hoo

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:24 PM

Fun fact: Ben Roethlisberger was born the same week this song was #1

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:25 PM

Hi Jeff!  The Bears are winning… it is a glorious time here in Chicago!

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:27 PM

Sorry, I’m late to the party here, I got lost in my own locker room.

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:28 PM

HOWARD… that is looking like the playbook today.  Howard left , Howard right

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:30 PM

Feet first dude.. day 1 of QB school

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:31 PM

I bet I am not supposed to swear on the WGN Bears blog… DARN!  it was 47 yards.. not 57

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:33 PM

Does Mathew McConaughey have a gambling problem or something.. why does this dude do so many commercials? 

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:33 PM

flag… not us not us not us! YAY

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:35 PM

boooooooo… way late on that flag.. the closer ref is usually right…looked clean to me

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:36 PM

Whoo Hoo!  I don’t care how you rationalize it.  Key play – stope em!

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:38 PM

What a beautiful day for a game, but man that late Sept. heat…

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:41 PM

decent scramble… 

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:41 PM

3rd and long.. might have to pass the ball..

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:42 PM

sure… we’ll try that again… we almost caught that one :)

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:43 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:43 PM

87 looks hurt

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:46 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:47 PM

and.. forgot to scramble on that one… 

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:48 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:49 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:51 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:52 PM

full disclosure I do have Martravis Bryant on one of my FF teams… there weren’t many draft worthy Bears this year

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:55 PM

Come on D… looking like butter and Bell is the hot knife

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:57 PM

thanks — we’ll take it.  Still gotta get that D going … not… 

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:57 PM

BigBen has ALL DAY to throw…

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:57 PM

whew!! good D on that pass

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 201712:58 PM

Thoughts?

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 201712:58 PM

shoot…. any chance we are gonna stop this drive?

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:00 PM

Can I pick None of the Above??

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:01 PM

If they have to rely on the D-line? No way, the secondary is the only thing keeping the Steelers from scoring.

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:02 PM

I miss The League (TV Show)  I need some deep thoughts from Taco

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:04 PM

Can’t we call that a fumble…please

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:05 PM

I know.. the plane .. the plane… I am on fantasy island…

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:06 PM

Is hanging out with Coach Gruden actually a prize?  Unless we are going for bad hair makeovers… I’d just take the beer.

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:10 PM

key play.. insert sound fx here… 

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:10 PM

that was an ugly play.. but got the job done

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:11 PM

Why is Cohen not involved in EVERY play???

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:11 PM

one great play… one Bears play…

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:13 PM

all the feels in one play.. 

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:14 PM

Is that a cast or a really really big mitten on 55?

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:18 PM

Didn’t see that coming… throw for a TD!!!! Back in the lead.  BEAR DOWN!

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:19 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:20 PM

lets not screw this up :43 seconds from a halftime lead

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:21 PM

Nice coverage!!! Fuller!

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:23 PM

Nice coverage!!!

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:23 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:23 PM

how did you miss that sack dude… 

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:25 PM

I see our pal Jay Culter is losing to the Jets… yes the Jets

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:26 PM

Did not see that coming!!

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:27 PM

wha???? Are you kidding.. RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:27 PM

all of chicago screams in agony

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:28 PM

Wow….

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:28 PM

really Greg … a dumb play..  dumb doesn’t even begin to describe that

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:30 PM

Can we just kick this dude off the team now?

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:30 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:34 PM

This is the craziest thing, ever…

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:34 PM

this is crazy…after all that we get another chance at a TD

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:35 PM

If you can’t punch this in after the entire Steeler team just ran 100 yards..

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:35 PM

OMG!  It gets crazier…

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:38 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:38 PM

That is one of the stupidest, saddest, most pathetic plays I have ever seen … he stops running… stops running before he hits the endzone.  

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:40 PM

I am sure if I search my memory banks.. I can probably find a Lions play that was equally dumb.. grew up in Michigan… seen a lot of bad football.  

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:41 PM

JP is there…

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20171:43 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:56 PM

ok… After all the drama we are still winning.. lets have a good 2nd half.. let’s stop this drive

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:58 PM

do we have to commend or congratulate  the refs for every “good call” isn’t that their job?

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20171:59 PM

should have caught that one… right through the arms .. ugh

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20172:01 PM

Rut roh…

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:03 PM

I LOVE Target.. but I don’t remember feeling THIS good after shopping there… wow these people are happy consumers

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:04 PM

Oh Darn!!  

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20172:04 PM

I think his knee was touching

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20172:05 PM

Shoutout to Spice!

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:08 PM

The last  two hosts were horrible… so these two have to be better :)  Gotta say I love me some #GBBO

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:09 PM

Sounds like a lot of Steelers fans have invaded soldier field

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20172:10 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:11 PM

ok – one more stop – GO BEARS!!

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:13 PM

I am a Spartan like Bell.. but can’t be happy for that.  booooooo

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:18 PM

no no no no .. not Howard.. “big loss”  understatement

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20172:21 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:26 PM

needed about 10 yards there… maybe a pass Mr Fox?

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:29 PM

how many total penalty yards is that now Mr Gumble?

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:31 PM

fraggle!  come on D.  Need you to step up again

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:33 PM

Is that dudes name Ju-Ju?

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:35 PM

NICE!! Great stop D.  Down goes big ben

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:38 PM

apparently tickets are available for Bears games… no shock there

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20172:40 PM

Need Howard on the field, Glennon not getting it done!

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:40 PM

insert swear word here.  Interception on the 20

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:41 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:42 PM

NEED A STOP!! come on Bears

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20172:43 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20172:44 PM

Copper does his job again, keeps points off the scoreboard…luckily it was the other team this time…

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:44 PM

ha ha ha

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:45 PM

Re Home Depot.. Anyone else think Emma needs a huge time out?

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:47 PM

Nice image for Wintrust Bank on the Wrigley Scoreboard,  WGN Client shout out.

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20172:47 PM

Howard is back!

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:50 PM

more penalty yards than passing yards.. not a success equation.

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:51 PM

we can’t even punt – I think I could punt 35 yards… maybe ;)

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:56 PM

owwww!  that hurt my tailbone

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20172:58 PM

wha?? half the distance to goal line from where… I think I missed something here

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:02 PM

the drive and hope are still alive

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:02 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:03 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:03 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:06 PM

Thank you Massie

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:06 PM

Oh, great. Glennon finally decides to throw and it’s almost INT!

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:07 PM

hope is fading… 

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:08 PM

That’s not how you close out a win…

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:11 PM

As this game approaches the average, this is interesting…

An average NFL game: more than 100 commercials and just 11 minutes of play

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:11 PM

NICE D!  ben down Ben Down

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:11 PM

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:12 PM

Do I get paid extra for OT blogging?

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:13 PM

Let’s recall how we should be celebrating a win right now… RUN ALL THE WAY

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:16 PM

You’re getting paid???

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:17 PM

Whoa…

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:17 PM

oh yeah.. big bucks… aren’t you ;)

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:18 PM

big review

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:19 PM

looks like he was out… I think the heal was down… love to be wrong

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:19 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:21 PM

This game has everything, it’s like the circus.

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:23 PM

BEAR DOWN!!! A WIN THANK HOWARD!!!!!

jeffcarlinwgnam September 24, 20173:23 PM

Finally, now I can finish my laundry.

juliesternwgnradio September 24, 20173:23 PM

Don’t forget to listen to Hamp, O’B, and Koz on WGN 720 after the game – I am sure it will be loud. An actual win… what will they do with themselves.
