1) As a Chicago Bears fan, the putrid play from the Bears on Sunday put a damper on my entire day of watching football. I just wasn’t in the mood to do much more than flip around to check in on the late games and the Sunday nighter.
After the Bears’ debacle, I watched the Bears recap show on NBC Sports Chicago to get all the press conferences and player interviews, and after that I was mostly all footballed out. I’m getting fed up devoting my time to a product that is such a letdown.
1a) Watching John Fox’s day after presser on Monday was just as mind-numbing as watching his game-plans unfold.
2) One more Bears’ thought.
It’s not in the McCaskey family DNA to fire a head coach midseason, but what has doing the same thing over and over gotten this franchise since George Halas stopped being involved with them?
3) Adrian Clayborn had a heck of a game.
"About as bad as I've seen anyone get beat in all of my years of watching football" -- Aikman on Cowboys LT Chaz Green allowing 5 Adrian Clayborn sacks— Chris Wesseling (@ChrisWesseling) November 12, 2017
I wonder if Aikman watched the Gabe Carimi and Ja’Marcus Webb duo give up 5.5 sacks to Aldon Smith back in 2012. I not only recall that game, it was an exciting part of Sackwatch (pre GIF).
4) How did the Bears beat the Carolina Panthers?
Carolina destroyed the Miami Dolphins 45-21 on Monday Night Football.
5) The New England Patriots showed exactly what a team should do after having a week off because of the bye. They obliterated the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football. They even found a way to get “injured” ex-Packers tight end Martellus Bennett on the field for seven snaps, in which he caught 3 for 38 yards.
6) Blake Bortles threw 51 times in Jacksonville’s 20-17 overtime win against the Los Angeles Chargers.
At 6-3, are the Jags for real?
7) The Los Angeles Rams are the number one scoring team in the NFL and they are giving up the fourth fewest points.
What a difference a year makes.
8) When you have a reputation for being a dumbass, you’ll never get the benefit of the doubt.
If they can run the ball like that (298 yards rushing), that’s a Super Bowl contender.
10) This gets me every time I watch it...
49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin blew a kiss to the sky before he crossed the goal line before kneeling in prayer after an 83-yard TD. Goodwin announced on social media later that he and wife Morgan's baby boy died Sunday morning because of complications during her pregnancy. pic.twitter.com/CvumZOxvDh— WDBJ7 (@WDBJ7) November 13, 2017
