Anti-Cub is the way to be.

What the hell is this thread about again?

Oh yeah, go Bear!

The Cubs are too easy to pick on. They're defenseless.

Go Bears. And Colts. I just want the SB over so we can get to the Pro Bowl already.

I guess I don't understand your point. As NSW said, and I said, how can this team that averaged 25 points per game and the most yards per game of ANY team in the NFL be only a good offense. Are you saying their inconsistant? Did they play crappy teams?
They DID play in the NFC, where a .500 record gets you in the playoffs. You be the judge.

Anyway, the most important thing to realize is that they were the SAINTS. I grew up as fan of the Saints, and they are the absolute best at getting your hopes up and then ripping your guts out. They beat everyone they shouldn't beat and no one they should. The entire history of the franchise is a joke. I kept telling people all season long not to get to happy because the Saints were going to break their hearts. The franchise has no real experience in the playoffs, and it showed when they cracked for the Bears. I was pulling for the Bears, BTW, and thought you guys would win....but a lot of the margin of victory was the Saints shooting their own feet off.

As far as the Colts, I respect your defense but you must also realize that we already beat the best defense in the NFL. We are very capable of competing with the Bears defense. If we have to play "Buc ball" as TD calls it, we can do it and we can win. Just ask the Ravens. If it goes the shootout route, ask Tom Brady and the Patriots what that is like. Grossman's had the highest and the lowest QB ratings this year. I saw a lot to be afraid of when they get rolling, but a lot of the passes he completed against the Saints would be picked off by the Colts' secondary. Just food for thought.

As for what scares me about the Bears, Hester (? kick returner?) gives me nightmares. We have had trouble with special teams all year long. Our best bet is probably if he hangs out with Tank Johnson and gets arrested the night before the Super Bowl.

I respect the Bears and am looking forward to a great Super Bowl. Hopefully it will be a great game with good officiating, no injuries, and just plain old battle it out ball game. I won't complain if Indy runs away with it, though. LOL

Off topic so I apologize. Do you guys enjoy Terry Bradshaw? Not as a player. I mean on Fox. Does he bug you as much as he bugs me? Just wondering.
He went completely off the deep end at the Super Bowl the time Paul McCartney played. During the pregame show, Bradshaw and someone else were both attempting to sing "A Hard Day's Night".

Please stop making fun of my Cubs on this thread...I can handle it in the baseball thread, but when it starts up in 2 threads, it's just too much...

Ok fine. I've tried to be nice in this forum b/c I don't hate the colts. But if you honestly want to know what I'm thinking. I'm thinking Pey-Pey is going to choke. I think the Bears' Defense is going to get to him and he will throw 2-3 int's. This is our year baby! Colt fans might as well just stay in Indy so as not to get ridiculed when they lose to the "worst 13-3 team to make the playoffs".

Is that better?



Some day you Sox fans will feel us Cub's fan's wrath...ok...no, that will never happen.

Excuse me? Then why was I just casually walking down Madison Ave. with a Cubs shirt on when some little 19 year old says to me, "Cubs Suck!"

Wanna know what I said? I replied with "Go Tigers!"


HA!

I like when Cub and White Sox fans go at each other, makes me feel better about the whole "I love the Yankees and so hate 2 different teams pretty badly".

Phil, I will not make another anti-Cub comment until at least opening day. That is my promise to you. But, I like your attempt at trash talk.

As for the Saints getting your hopes and then not delivering, I always thought the franchise was usually so bad that there were no hopes to get up. There was that stretch of a few years where you had a sick defense, all those great linebackers, and you looked like legit contenders...then a year or two under Haslett, before things came undone, but not a lot else. Maybe I'm wrong. Either way, the Saints have not cornered the market on getting fans hopes up only to have them dashed. Also, NFC or not, you still have to line up and play, and it's not like every NFC team was putting up 25 points a game, so, I still feel like the Saints had a very good offense.

I wonder what the Indy D would do if Hester was simply on the field for an offensive snap or two. If they faked an end around to him, the whole D would bite, I bet. Cowher would find a way to use a guy like that.

I am not making fun of the Cubs. I hate baseball in general because it's so dull IMO compared to foot and basket, but I have always felt sorry for the Cubs. That thing where the fan stole the ball and ruined the game and they lost must have been right up there with most devastating sports moments ever.

I fear he'll choke too, all I can do is hope he won't, because IF they don't make any mistakes, the Colts are the better team. I have nothing against the Bears, but as for 'our year', this may be the Colts' last chance. The Bears have a young team and many more chances. So let us have this one!

And once again, to clarify, my comment about trolling, trash talking fans was about COLTS BOARDS, not this site. I mean Ravens and Pats fans joined just to troll, and made a lot of aliases and shot off their mouths, then disappeared when they lost. Bears fans don't seem to be doing that.

I'm the one making fun of the Cubs, but, no more. At least until April.

NBA Basketball is probably the dullest sport out there right now, outside of watching the Suns or Mavs. Same sets, same plays, yawn, same PA announcers having epileptic fits all game long. I always respect people's opinions on sports they like or dislike, but can never understand people thinking baseball is boring, since it's far from boring to me. But, such is life. Funny thing is, I LOVE football, but that sport has a lot of dead time....plays last anywhere from 5-15 seconds or so, then you get 35-40 seconds of the huddle....but we get replay after replay and so that occupies the dead time.

I don't see Manning choking in this game. Does that make me crazy?

And, if he has a bad game and Bears fans call it a choke, does that sell your Defense short? Can't he have a bad game not because he choked, but because the Bears D was too good that day? That's a whole other thread, probably...what defines a choke. Like, when the Red Sox came back against the Yankees in 2004, Sox fans called it the biggest choke in sports history, and maybe it was...but if the Yanks came back from being down 3-0, I'd just be like "The Yankees just engineered the biggest comeback in sports history", because that's the way I prefer to see something like that. It's just perspective I suppose.
