4 Downs With Ed; Bears Vs. Jaguars Preseason Preview

unnamed1

 

Not much I can say about the Jacksonville Jaguars besides that they are pretty much your ideal preseason opponent. Exactly like a nice set of training wheels to get your shit all tuned up for the real deal in a few weeks. Let’s hop into it:

 

1st Down: Is it time to start worrying about the health of the offensive line?

Long, Mills, and Britten chalked up a DNP against the Eagles, and De la Puente went down in the game. I’ve seen some people starting to get a little worried, wondering what to make of four of our seven core offensive linemen being hampered by injuries. I wish there was an answer for this but there isn’t a person outside of the locker room that has a clue of the severity of any of them. It looks like Mills, Britten, and Dela’s injuries may keep them out for at least the forseeable future but K. Long is ready to go. Busting out these moves in his Dad socks will make you feel a little better:

Anyway just take a good look at Ola, Leno and Brown. It looks like these are the three guys most likely to step in if something went seriously south with the guys above.

 

2nd Down: How do we feel about the way Tucker has been managing the Linebacker situation?

So on the preseason depth chart blog I talked about how I was baffled as to why Bostic wasn’t competing with McClellin. Someone tried to point out that it was only because of Bostic playing in the nickel package and that made sense to me. I gave the guy a my bad and we went on our way. It turns out that, that was incorrect. Bostic has not played any OLB and they have him solely slotted at MLB as well as their guy when they shift to nickel. So I ask the question again…why aren’t we having more players get a crack at this? It’s clearly the weakest linebacker spot, and we are pretty much at this point just tossing it on a guy who has been underwhelming his whole NFL career. Why is Greene getting essentially buried behind Briggs? Why didn’t Christian Jones get many reps against the Eagles? What is going on in Tuckers brain when it comes to linebacker?

 

3rd Down: Is the Special Teams unit going to pull their heads out of their asses?

Not going to go too in depth here. They looked awful the last time out as you saw them winning the “Ugly” category in my last blog. Need to have a better showing at literally every position. Big opportunity for the return guys to gain some ground with Chris Williams most likely being out with a bad hamstring.

 

4th Down: How excited are we to most likely have some familiar faces back at Safety?

At the time of this blog it looks like Steltz and Conte have a decent shot at playing, and I know Chicago is foaming at the mouth to see CC back in saddle. With the two guys who have the most Bears safety experience back it’s going to be interesting to see how the reps get split up between these two, Mundy, Vereen, Wilson, Jennings, and McCray. The safest bets at this point look like Mundy and Vereen, but who is going to win these last couple spots?

Bear Down.

Patrick Kane, 2 Time Stanley Cup Champion, Conn Smythe Winner, And Now Fattey Hockey League Championship MVP

Screen Shot 2014-08-14 at 2.21.51 PM

 

(Source) Patrick Kane has a knack for scoring clutch playoff goals regardless of the jersey he’s wearing.  The Chicago Blackhawks star and Buffalo native led Milli Vanilli to the Fattey Hockey League title by scoring five of his team’s 10 goals in back-to-back wins in a best-of-3 series in his hometown earlier this week. He was named the championship MVP.

“It’s basically the best Buffalo players,” Nik Fattey, the league’s founder and a Buffalo Sabres scout, explained of the league in a phone interview on Thursday. “It’s not like a bar league. It’s a competitive league. It’s kind of like a Rucker Park sort of thing, NBA summer league. It’s the closest thing to a hockey game that’s not an NHL game.”

 

 

Hope Mama Kane has room in that trophy case, big time hardware coming home. I said this a month ago when those pictures of Kane playing pick up hit the internet but I’ll say it again. This is awesome. Having one of the best hockey players in the world compete in a summer league in Buffalo is cool for everyone involved. And of course Kane scored half or the goals on the way to the championship. That’s probably the least surprising news of all time. Whether it be the Stanley Cup Finals or a dinky rink in Buffalo, clutch goals are 88′s special. Everyone knows that.

 

 

What a moment!

Does This Look Like A Pair Of 76 Year Old Twins Arrested For Watching Child Porn In Their Bathrobes

Capture

LEXINGTON, KY (WAVE) – Twin brothers, arrested on child pornography charges in Lexington, served as volunteers for the Boy Scouts. 76-year-old brothers Jack and Jerry Cassidy, who were photographed in their bathrobes for their mug shots, were arraigned on Tuesday in Fayette County. Lexington Police say they found pornographic images of children on videos, pictures, cameras and film. Since the story broke, a man who said he was once in their troop has come forward with details. Gary Smallwood said when he saw the twins on the news, memories from 51 years ago flooded back. “The camp trip, of having to take my clothes off in front of them, you know there was no reason behind it,” said Smallwood. He said on a camping trip the scouts were forced to march around the campfire naked. Then, another time he said the men made him drink until he passed out, and he woke up without clothes.

 

 

 

I don’t know why I have to keep saying this but I will. Hard and fast rule I picked up a long time ago, never, ever, trust twins. Of course there are exceptions to the rule, but in general, if you see a set of twins you cross the street, you steer clear, you walk fastly or sometimes run. Because twins are not normal. And older twins are even worse. Young twins are cute to a point. Oh look, they dress the same, they have the same bow in their hair, how cute. Well not older twins. Soon as a pair of twins hit their teenage years they can no longer be trusted. Especially when they live together and are 76 year olds. That has we watch child porn in our bathrobes every night after dinner written all over it. Don’t trust twins and your life will be better for it.

 

 

Also, if you’re a twin do yourself a favor and live on the opposite side of the country as your brother or sister. That’s how you twin correctly. You pretend your twin doesn’t exist and then when you need a cool fact about yourself at the company ice breaker or a bar you tell people you have a twin. That’s the only acceptable twin behavior. And don’t tell me you’ve never lip kissed your twin. I know you have, you know you have and the whole world knows you have. That’s twin 101. You’re weird, you kiss each other and you can’t be trusted.

Anti-Gay Activist In Texas Had His Wife Divorce Him Because She Was A Lesbian And Wanted To Have A Girlfriend

 

2

 

(Source) He was apparently sleeping with the enemy. While a top anti-gay group activist was preaching through a megaphone against same-sex couples in Texas his soon-to-be ex-wife was cozying up with a woman, court documents have revealed. Jonathan Saenz, president of Texas Values, was served divorce papers by his then wife Corrine Morris Rodrigeuz Saenz in August 2011 after revealing her relations with a fellow elementary school teacher, according to the documents obtained by Lone Star Q.

Less than six months later Saenz, a then conservative consultant for the Liberty Legal Institute in Austin, went on to take the fiery role of president for the state’s top anti-gay group. The group has worked to block LGBT non-discrimination ordinances in San Antonio and Houston. In June it was also successful in plugging “reparative therapy” for gays into the Texas Republican Party’s platform, as previously reported. In his then on-going court battle with his wife, court documents reveal that Saenz demanded that she undergo an evaluation by a psychologist of his choosing. When she didn’t comply he ordered that she face jail time or a fine. He additionally requested that her girlfriend, identified as Ercimin Paredes, be banned from coming anywhere near their three young children.

 

 

 

Hey idiot, way to blow a GOLDEN opportunity at a threesome. Seriously, there are two ways to go about the news that your wife is a lesbian. The first way is to become a politician, have your entire platform be anti-gay marriage, and try to force your ex-wife to take therapy to stop being gay. That is called short term thinking. Making passionate decisions out of anger instead of being rational. The second way you can deal with this is to lay on the guilt trip, the “how could you do this?” face, talk about how awful it is for your children blah blah blah. Give her a one way ticket on the pity party express. And then when your wife feels bad for you boom, you’re now fucking her and her girlfriend AND you’re no longer married. Win, win, win. That’s called strategic thinking, big picture stuff. You had a chance and you fucking blew it. You found a woman who likes other women and also didn’t mind having sex with you. Absolute moron. You deserve all the hate in the world.

 

 

PS

If your wife cheats on you that means she doesn’t get half your money in the divorce right? So what the fuck is this guy complaining about anyway.

Northwestern Running Back Venric Mark Transfers, 2 Weeks Before The First Game Of The Season

venric-mark-done

CBS - Northwestern star tailback and kick returner Venric Mark will be transferring “for personal reasons,” the school announced Wednesday.Mark was already suspended for the team’s first two games of the season. In 2012, the All-American punt returner rushed for 1,366 yards and 12 touchdowns.“Northwestern has been an indescribable experience for me,” Mark said in a statement. “It has been my home for four years, and has molded me into the man I am. I’m one class shy of the Northwestern degree I’ve worked so hard for, and I will graduate. I’m devastated to leave my second home, but life is full of challenges and I’ve been presented with another one. Right now this is what is best for me and my family.”

Mark was granted a fifth year of eligibility after the Big Ten approved his medical hardship waiver following an injury-plagued season in 2013.“Today is a difficult day for our football family and, most importantly, for Venric,” Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said in a statement. “We love him, and there is no doubt that we’re going to miss him as both a person and player. But this is unquestionably what is best for Venric and those closest to him.”Mark wasn’t the only loss for the Wildcats on Wednesday. Northwestern also lost receiver Christian Jones, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice. Jones was the Wildcats’ leading receiver last season with 668 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

 

All the last week or two I’ve been talking up Northwestern football.  Now, I’ve never hid the fact that I’m a diehard Northwestern fan.  Have been since the Damien Anderson years.  Come October when the Sox are gone fishing, my loyalty completely shifts to the Northwestern Wildcats, even more so than the Bears.  Everybody thinks I’m a complete moron because of it, and I admit NU fans like me are few and far between, but I also take pride in this fact, because once Patty Fitzgerald inevitably turns NU into a Stanford level football team, I’ll be the first one to say “I told ya so”.  I even had a full preview blog cherry picking little Intern Charlies preview series over on the U.

 

With that said, I was absolutely freaking out when I heard about this news.  Then, when I had time to settle down, I realized this is hardly going to be the tale of the Wildcats season.  The bigger loss is Christian Jones, who would have lit it up with Trevor Semien this year.  So fuck it.  Time for Green, Long, and true frosh Justin Jackson to step up to the plate in place of Mark, and Prater, Youngblood-Ary, and Miles Shuler to step up in place of Jones.  The entire team can use this transfer and the loss of Jones as an excuse to get better.  Fuck the doubters.

 

Nothing has changed in my preseason prediction.  I have $100 on the Cats that they win ten games (bowl included) with Chief, and I’m still sticking by this prediction.  Cannot wait to watch the Cats curb stomp Nebraska and ND this year.

 

PS – Justin Jackson is the real deal.  Back to back Gatorade Player of the Year in Illinois.  6000 rush yards, 100+ TD’s at GBN in his HS Career.  Kid is an absolute FREAK. Freshman All American, heard it here first
