KingPsyz: Either way, the point stands, when a teams looses (and badly) against the Bears they have nothing but excuses why it happened for the other team. But when the Bears loose it's because they suck.


No, when the Bears lose it's because Jay Cutler. You need to re-take Fark Football 101. :p

Geeves00: Romo was at fault for 2 of those picks but he wasn't the only reason they lost that game. The "restructured" Dallas secondary looked horrible. Carr isn't worth the price tag they paid so far and Claiborne is too young and inexperienced at this level to be able to cover some of these top end receivers.

Dez bryant couldn't make the key catches and blew a timing route for the first pick. I can't really call that one on Romo because the play is designed for him to throw the ball and Dez to turn around and the ball to be there. Dez kept going. The second pick was Ogletree not catching a ball that hit him in the hands. The third pick was the Offensive line almost getting Romo killed from behind. The other picks were all on him though.

Their main issues are with coaching and their GM in my opinion. Their defense might be pretty good in a year or two but right now they looks terrible. The offense is way to inconsistent and their play calling is predictable.

I think Romo is a good QB, but they need to get him a Line that can afford him more then 1-2 seconds and that can get off blocks to help with the running game. Murray is a really good back who gets stuffed a lot of the time because the o-line is garbage.

.500 team at best this year unless they really start stringing wins together.

At least the penalties were under control this game...

I missed that, the last quarter I saw all smiles on the Bears sideline, so I missed any blowoff.

Tice /= Smith My understanding is that Cutler was annoyed with Tice's slow playcalling...which led to two early timeouts. I'm not terribly upset.

As a Bears fan, I don't really care. If they can carve up other teams like that on a weekly basis then I wouldn't mind to see Cutler stuff Mike Tice's head in the Gatorade cooler.

I've seen Jay Cutler take off his helmet in a huddle, turn off his helmet's headphones, and continue playing. If I recall correctly, they started playing better after that and they won that game.

my_cats_breath_smells_like_cat_food: dwrash: Dr Dreidel: MysticSavage: whizbangthedirtfarmer: So I tuned out in the 2nd quarter, mostly because of Gruden's weird fetish for Romo (and, well, anything else Gruden said). What was Gruden's excuse as the game came to a close? He's a gunslinger?

I tried to do a shot for everytime Tirico and Gruden said "gunslinger" last night. The doctors think the damage might be permanent.

Does anyone know what the fark Gruden was talking about when he called that circus catch by a Bears TE (about 6:00 to go in regulation) "spider 2 wide banana"? I know plays have weird names sometimes, but that deserves some sort of explanation.

Did Chucky have a stroke on national TV and no one had the heart to tell him, or did I miss a reference somewhere?

You should watch some of the one on one shows with Gruden and the rookie quarterbacks "spider 2 wide banana' comes up all the time.

Yeah, it is a play/route, although I believe it is actually "Spider 2, Y banana", where the "Y" refers to the receiver on the play (receivers are typically labeled X, Y, and Z depending on where they line up).

/Someone with more football/receiver knowledge than me, feel free to chime in. My career ended after being a high school lineman over 10 years ago... not many Y-bananas for the linemen

Let's address the first 3 picks because I'd put a lot more blame on Romo for them than you do.

1st pick - Romo sees a blitz and panics, calls audible for a WR that he's had trouble communicating since they've been on the same team and throws the ball right to the CB. Sure, Dez shares part of the blame for the miscommunication on the audible but Romo is the QB and he is in charge of the offense. If he cannot adapt after Dez runs the wrong routes time after time on audibles then he's not doing his job.

2nd pick - that's on Ogletree for the most part but Romo throws into a well covered WR. At best Ogletree makes the catch, normal cirucmstances it's an incomplete and at worse it gets batted in the air and intercepted.

3rd pick - it wasn't really a pick as much as a fumble and recovered by the defense but that's all on Romo. He's had ball security issues his whole career and for a QB that gets hit as much as he does he should be practicing ball security a whole lot more.

I was actually impressed by how the o-line has played at the start of this game and they actually protected Romo a whole lot better than the past 3 games.

I like Romo as a personality but I'm not sure he has the football IQ to run an offense. In hurry up mode he's a beast because he just runs the play he's given by the OC and he has the talent to make it happen. When he's calling the plays in the huddle and gets to the line more often then not he audibles out of the play because linebackers have him figured out and they will always be at the line of scrimmige even if they don't follow through with the blitz.

I'd love to see Garrett run a whole game in hurry up offense mode after the bye week. That's the only way to protect Romo from an inexperienced o-line and from himself.

Hard to say that a WR not responding to an audible is Romo's fault, but you're right. He can't throw anything to Dez if there's any doubt at all that Dez understands it.

It hit his receiver in the arms. It wasn't caught and popped up.

ddam: 3rd pick - it wasn't really a pick as much as a fumble and recovered by the defense but that's all on Romo. He's had ball security issues his whole career and for a QB that gets hit as much as he does he should be practicing ball security a whole lot more.


You're right here. Tony really needs to go to the practice field today and practice being clubbed from behind over and over until he gets his problems under control.

He ran threw the heart of the line with the ball in both hands extended completely from his body. You can't display worse ball control than what he did there. Any lineman worth his salt could have stripped the ball from him.

Maybe if you took Romo's wang from your mouth once in a while and actually tried to understand the game of football, you wouldn't come across as a petulant whiny-ass knucklehead.

Or would you like to again biatch that the Ogletree INT was because of PI?

I think Jerry Jones is a great owner. It's the doucebag he's kept on as GM that's the problem.

Jerry Jones is the new Al Davis. He thinks he knows everything about football, but he really knows nothing. Only when someone with some guts can make Jerry realize that he needs to step away from the GM role and get someone else to do it will the Cowboys be good again.

Here's hoping that's not for another 100 years.



Don't worry, Jerry will probably never sell the team, and will never step down from Gm.

That part made me laugh....just the visual of Romo, on the practice field "uh, ok Coach...you want me to take the snap, do a 5 step drop, make my 1 and 2 reads and then you're going to hit me with a car to see if I hang on to the ball? Ok, got it...break!" 

and on the Bryant running the wrong route thing, it looked like Major Wright was surprised the ball hit him square in the chest there for a second, then he realized, "oh shiat....RUN!"...lol...Da Bears!

By the time of his death Al Davis had forgotten more about football than Jerry Jones has ever known.

Jerry has 3 Super Bowl rings because he let Jimmy Johnson assemble an amazing array of talent. Jerry thought he wasn't getting enough credit, so he fired Johnson and brought in Switzer to manage the last SB season, that ring also really belongs to JJ. Since then, the 'boys have been an overrated pathetic franchise. I hope they remain so as long a Jerrah owns them.

Hes kept that GM because he can control him, time has proven any owner who thinks he can run his team better than a GM will usually miss out on the playoffs in the modern era of football, owners should just ask why a team failed and otherwise should shut the fark up.

No, just no. Jerry has never had a clue about how to coach or put together a team, the only successful football teams he has been around were all because of someone else and he was only along for the ride.

Personally I love to see dallas fans twist in the wind just knowing their team will fail year after year, usually in a glorious fashion.

According to Gruden and Andrew Luck, it's a pass to the fullback out of the backfield because until they take it away, he's always open. From what Luck was drawing on the board, it looks like they call it banana because the route he runs looks like a banana.

Jay doesn't respond well when he isn't playing well, and he doesn't respond well when other people don't do their jobs. Maybe I only notice it when it's the Bears, but I just don't see other teams taking the time outs that the Bears do because they can't get a play called in time.

I fully accept the fact that Jay isn't a natural leader, and will never be an arm-around-the-shoulder guy to pick someone else up. That's fine by me because he has exceptional physical talent. We've had enough leaders/nice guys/whatevers at QB and they were all mediocre talents.

Keep Jay from getting hit and get the plays called in time, and Jay will probably have a good game.

Jay acts like a d-bag and is probably an unpleasant person to be around at times. Fine by me - give me the ability to buy a Chicago Bears Superbowl Champion t-shirt and you can be as big a dick as you want.

Side note: I haven't followed much media today, but I'm guessing that few analysts are talking about when the camera caught Jay pulling Jamarcus Webb aside and telling him he played a good game. They were more than happy to dissect him yelling at Webb last week.

No, when the Bears lose it's because Jay Cutler. You need to re-take Fark Football 101. :p

They tried to corner Ja'Marcus on it after the game, but he said he had to go hug his mother and wouldn't be discussing it. (He had family in the area).

Also, a LOT of Quarterbacks act like D-Bags, even the Fark Favorite Aaron Rodgers. He gets pissy when things aren't going well, and his body language is every bit as dejected as Cutler's. He's yelled at his receivers and made wild gestures. He's zoned out on the sideline. He's thrown hissy fits.

He doesn't live in Chicago, where the media eats everyone alive for not being perfect, so we don't hear about it. It doesn't trickle to the national media because the local media isn't clamoring about it endlessly.

I bet he doesn't even have to deal with a hack named Rosenbloom who spews vile hatred every week over stupid shiat just to spew vile hatred.

Another vote against Chicago media. Front running cynical hacks. I grew up near Chicago with family from there, and it always perplexed me how little the media boosted its own team, like it was a sign of misplaced loyalty to bash them endlessly. This was during the Ditka era. Now Ive lived away from Chicago long enough to see how normal home town media is supposed to act. Chicago media has deep factions that go back generations and do not get along nor ever will.

Reading any FARK thread about the Dallas Cowboys is like trying to decipher Jeffrey Dahmer's diary. It's sick, twisted, contradictory, phallic to the extreme, makes no sense, and you feel dirty after reading it, but BAH GAWD is it ever entertaining!

Ya'll is nuts.

Have you seen how pissy he gets when people do his little touchdown belt dance at the insurance place? Totally unprofessional.

And has Cutler ever been intercepted by a truck?

//A Rodg was asked about that throw during his radio show yesterday and he said he got it in on the second take. He also admitted that he was aiming to miss in front of the truck too.
