Why would Frett travel that far just to watch his team lose ? :D

I predict The Colts win in 6 games, 4-2, but I hope Da Bears can make a series out of it. :(

Good luck, Frett! :)

Um, Caesar, this is football, not baseball. The Bears will beat the Colts, but it only is one game. That's it buddy, Sunday February 4th, one game, one Team wins it, the other goes home, not winning it. :yes:

Of course it's not baseball, it's not like the Cubs or White Sox would ever be in position to win a Title. Errrrrrrr, well one of those two anyway. :crazed:

Seriously though Frett, I live in Packer Country but I am pulling for the Bears. Good luck and have fun. :)

The NFL announced today that for financial reasons
they had to eliminate one team from the league.

So they've decided to combine the Green Bay
Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and form one team, causing many layoffs but saving millions of dollars in costs,
they will be known as the..........
TAMPACKS.

Unfortunately, they're only good for one period

and have no second string...

Thank you.While I, too, have an Anakin-on-the-lava-bank feeling for the Gnu Dingaling Patsies, they are a good team. They play sound defense, run an efficient offense with capable players. But they're gaining the arrogance that comes from success and assumption of victory, adding in a little bullying and a slight dash of cheating. For a recipe? Of leftover Pro Bowl Coach Surprise, with a side of Costly Turnover Cake.

Guess what will be the story of '07 (or at least here in Packer country) "Will Favre come back in 2008?" I'm sooo excited to get to read/listen to those stories. :rolleyes: Other then that I'm glad he's back, although that means another year of Aaron Rodgers (or is it Rogers?) sitting on the bench doing nothing. I said it then and I'll say it again, the Packers should have drafted somebody else, while Rodgers may turn into a great QB the Pack could have used somebody playing every game over the last two years, instead they'll have a third year player with next to no experience who won't sniff the playing field 'till he is in his fourth year.

You funny C.


I too dispise Grossman but I hope Peyton Manning lights up the Bears today. I'd much rather see Peyton get a ring than doodoo Grossman, any day of the week.


Here is my prediction as posted @ Actionfigs:


I think the Colts will win 20-18. The Bears will rely heavily on Robbie Gould and he will boot 3 FGs. Thomas Jones will score the lone TD for The Bears. The Colts will get a pair of field goals and Peyton will toss a pair of touchdowns. The Bears will have a chance to drive down the field and score a game-winning touchdown or kick a game-winning FG, but Grossman will throw an appropriate INT in the process. It will be a really good and close game with The Bears coming up just a bit short.

:D

2. Take it to the air! I'd almost hate to say it due to all of Rex's shenanigans, but the run isn't do it right now.

Looks like Simms made as many stupid errors as Grossman did. on at least 2 instances i heard him saying "last week against New England". excuse me, phil, for the rest of the world that AFC title game was 2 weeks ago. and he called Reggie Wayne "Reggie Bush" twice.

02-04-2007, 11:12 PM
As poor as the defense was, in the fourth quarter for as many plays were run against them and for as long as they were on the field they had the Bears a touchdown away from leading. They kept three Colts red zone drives to field goals. How many snaps did Grossman bobble, fumble, and lose yards in that killed drives? And then on two consecutive possessions he throws interceptions, one that goes right to the end zone. One shouldnt have been thrown, and the other was underthrown. Grossman just couldnt get the guys to gain first downs. How many times did he put three together tonight? The guy is a scapegoat for a reason.

I believe there were 8 turnovers in that game. The last time the Colts were in the Super Bowl, there were 7. Their light jerseys must be good luck, as they won that game (Super Bowl V) wearing light jerseys, as well as the 1958 overtime title game. They lost Super Bowl III with dark jerseys. Don't know about the 1959 title game they won.

The big joke at work today was Rex being the MVP on the Colts' behalf. Yuckin' funny, that one.

I'm borderline disappointed, but not because the Bears let me down. I strongly suspected the Colts would win - the AFC is so much stronger these days - but the Bears just kept hanging around to keep me interested right up until Rex's second pick in the late going. The poor kid, he did such a great job of maintaining his composure all through the playoffs, right up until the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl. Be interesting to see where the Bears go, QB-wise, from here..... I don't think they can take the next step with Rex. :(

JetsAndHeels
02-05-2007, 06:32 PM
The Ravens in 2000 proved that a subpar qb with a good defense can win a championship. Alot of people compared that team to this year's Bears. The only problem is that while Rex had his good moments, there were more bad ones. The guy has heart, but in the end he is the biggest question mark for that team.

The one exciting highlight for me happed in the first 14 seconds when Devan Hestor ran back the opening kickoff for a TD. Man I almost lost my voice screaming as he ran down the field. Now I just have to wait until the start of baseball season to see if my Cubs ave improved during the off season.

yeah but the only thing is that Peyton doesn't really have a laser rocket arm. certainly not in the league of Favre in his prime or Carson Palmer, JP Losman, Jay Cutler, Daunte Culpepper before the injuries or even Vick. (hey, we're only talking about strength here, not accuracy, right? :p) Peyton's deep balls tend to be more flutter than tight spirals.

Anybody else notice the lack of adjustments by the great Chicago D and have no idea why that was the case?

yes, i did wonder why that was the case. i thought that belicheck already proved that the best way to beat manning is to bring lots of pressure against him while employing lots of formation shifts so he never knows where the blitz is coming from. manning in a rhythm is a scary thing and so you do everything you can to stop it from happening.

i guess with cover 2 you can't really do that since you always need the 2 safeties deep to prevent big plays. however, with the downpour of rain, did they really expect peyton to keep airing it out to harrison and wayne? the more they sat back in cover 2, the more he picked them apart with short passes and handoffs to addai and rhodes. in a way, the bears d was even shooting themselves in the foot b/c by conceding all the chunks of short yardage, that kept them on the field longer and wore them out.

I was laughing because that was funny actually. Indy didn't know what hit them.

The rest of the game was not so funny however, and even before the end of the first half, the Colts were punishing Chicago for Hestor and they continued to do so with brutality, though there were too many fumbles on both sides.

Meanwhile, I voted for your picture on your radio station's site, Frett.

That brought back memories, as I used to listen to rock on "The Loop" when I lived near Chicago. Too funny.

Also, whenever they sent Briggs on a blitz, they were effective in disrupting Manning's reads/progressions. Injuries made the defensive line from Chicago be average. They also had above average to good safeties as well before they went on IR. Course, any speculation on what the score would have been had it not rained? I heard some talking heads today speculate 45+ for the Colts should it have been nice and dry.

Oh, anyone hear why Grossman fumbled and why Manning doesn't fumble wet center/qb exchanges? It is because once a month (or when it's forecasted), on Thursdays, Indy puts all their balls into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours before practice, and than only use those wet balls while on offense. They know how to handle it and what adjustments are made. Jeff Saturday complains about it, but Tony Dungee said today that is probably the reason why they don't get affected by weather despite being a dome team.

Wade Phillips is the new coach of the Cowboys. I was living in Colorado when the Bills hired Phillips to be their head coach. All the Broncos fans laughed because they hated him so much. I heard Romo said Wade Phillips is a "proven winner". I'm not sure what records Romo was looking at because Phillips finished 16-16 with the Broncos and 29-19 with the Bills and has never won a playoff game. So, I will tell the Cowboys fans the same thing the Broncos fans told me after the Bills hired Phillips.

Actually pre-playoffs it was down to Norv Turner and Wade Phillips. After the playoffs started, Jerry Jones started to go for all the up and coming assistants on play off teams but lost out because most of the other teams with vacancies acted faster. Instead, the plan was to bring Jason Garrett in and have Parcells fulfill his contract and than let Garrett take over. It makes sense to bring in an defensive guy while waiting. If Turner would've been brought in, he would have installed his own offense, suffocated Garrett's play calling development and possibly just ran him out of town before he could have been installed (this is also possibly the reason for the delay, in the absence of anyone who Jones wanted, Garrett still wasn't ready to be a head coach). Now he's bought in that throw away coach who can helpfully install a decent defense, while Garrett installs his offense. He sits in the wings of Phillips who is good for 2 average years before being cut loose and the person who Jerry Jones really wanted is installed.
