What is offence? What is defence?

Is spelling different on the left coast?

We spell things a bit different in Canada.

And you only have 3 downs (rather than 4 downs) to advance the ball 10 yards if I recall correctly. Or is it 10 meters?

Does 12 players on a side matter? 110 yard field and wider too?

It sounds like if you Chicago fans say they suck then that is ok, but if someone else piles on then you have a problem. I really don't give a sh!t.......... the Bears are irrelevant today.

Should we discuss the Cubs next?

BTW, I thank you. In verifying your statement that the Bears have the most victories ever (which is true) I found this webpage.

NFL: 32 Teams All Time Football Record | The Roosevelts
You know how that goes.....If you argue or have a fight with your sibling then someone else tries to chime in then you want to bite their head off. Just human nature I guess. So I really don't care if you don't give a ****. And no I don't want to discuss the Cubs or White Sox. But if you would like to discuss the Blackhawks...........

How does an organization justify giving Cutler such a lucrative contract? What has he done to justify getting $22.5 Million this year and $15.5 next year guaranteed?

Should Cutler make more than Brady. I guess that explains why NE has been a successful organization in the last 20 years when their franchise QB makes less money to allow the team to surround him with talent to continue to win.
I'm surprised they keep filling up the seats. Just like the lovable losers up north (Cubs). I guess it just gives somebody something to do. Of course if the White Sox don't win the place is like half empty.

NFL: 2014 Season

Get the dinner ate early tonight as prime time tonight brings a classic in the making with Titans vs. Jags... Clipboard Jesus under center for Titans. Betting against Ol Clipboard on his infrequent starts has been more profitable than shorting oil!

Well, I never liked the Titans "just because" Bud Adams moved the Houston Oilers to Tennessee back in ~1997. So I'll go with Jasksonville tonight. I'm not betting big money on this one since neither team has much of my attention. I guess tonight's game is a fight for last place in the AFC South.

So while waiting, do your root for the Rams or Raiders? Or have you disowned them both?

More football follies tonight. Gee, I wonder if the Bears could be these guys.

Good luck! I hope you got it at minus 3, as the bettors have pushed it up here today. Everybody on forum ( and deservedly so) gives Cutler at verbal bashing for his pay/ success ratio, but at least he was taking a beating for his money. Clipboard Jesus has stole 17 million plus the past few years for keeping his long locks shiny and the clipboard safe.

Clearly we need to start a poll like we had for the best QB. Or we could just say they are all great, except for the the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders. They are outstanding.

This post really needs a smiley face, but I couldn't find one that was drooling.

The Bears don't have cheerleaders anymore - I think that explains their problems

Well, how about the Redskins, a drought for entire decades, the 50s and 60s, as well as being pretty pathetic throughout the 21st Century. Still a sold out stadium every game. As much as I hate the Skins, their fans are real fans.

"Clipboard Jesus" has to one of the best sports monikers of all time.

I remember when he started games for my team... let's just say his talent isn't "biblical".

Like I said, betting against Clipboard Jesus is more profitable than shorting oil. But hey, I will give him credit. He tied up his hair into a ponytail tonight and played a pretty good game. He will get him another contract from somebody next year somehow and steal some more money standing on the sidelines.

I suspect fans become a function of ticket prices. This is why the Cowboy games are so silent from a fan noise perspective. The real Cowboy fans cannot afford the price of admission

Wow, three days of pro football in a row starting late this afternoon. I hope the second game tonight doesn't go into overtime and/or the post game shows don't run too late. I'll need to unwind after the game, get some sleep, eat breakfast and make coffee before the pregame shows start up on Sunday morning.
