So in this foot ball you speak of, is there real bears? because that sounds interesting

My wife and her family are from Chicago, I on the other hand am a steelers fan, but love the Bears by association as well. Plus the Fridge was playing when I was growing up. I have this prediction: The bears demise for the 2012 season will rest on the shoulders of one player…. Jay Cutler. He will probobly develop some kind of magical injury he received while taking part in underwater basketweaving… or maybe a playoff game.

You guys aren’t going to believe this, but there is twice as much wood stacked behind the workbench as there is on the left side of the shop.
(There was a huge dead-space behind my bench cabinets that I filled.)
AND, I have about four times as much under wraps at my older brother’s house up north.
90% of it is shipping crates and cut offs but I make do with a LOT of glue-ups.
And with my mediocre skill level, getting it all free fit the bill well.

And Gerry, that was cold man, cold…lol

Charlie—Your Saints played a heck of a game last night!

Woodwrecker—You think that was cold? Just wait til Christmas Night.

For those of you who think the Super Bowl is that game they play in January or February … the REAL Super Bowl is when the Bears play the Packers at Lambeau Field. There’s a lot of history there … two of the oldest teams in pro football that have a total of 22 NFL championships between them.

Well last night provided one heck of an interesting game. I cant say that there was much defense being played but the Pack Attack is alive and well. That rookie was electric.

Well I am a Miami fan so I haven’t had much to cheer about since Dan Marino went to the playoffs every year just to get put out in the first round but I still love him. I guess we are so bad right now that I will have to stoop so low to bring up the only undefeated team ever in the NFL. Many have several super bowls but only one can lay claim to the perfect season.

Blakep—One of the funniest things to see is in the Minneapolis Metrodome … the Vikings list their ‘Playoff Appearances’!

I’m sure somebody deep in the bowels of Lambeau Field keeps track of such things, but the only thing that really counts is the 13 championships the Packers have listed on the Ring of Honor in the stadium.

Sorry … just had to rub it in.

I am a Vikings fan and a Seahawks fan, and I will not find much joy this year. My year is pretty much summed up with the news early on that Minnesota got rid of T. Jackson and then two days later that Seattle had picked him up.
Why would you sign a QB with 22 TD’s and 25 INT’s.
Both of my teams starting out 0 and 2. I can’t support the Bears, but I don’t think they will be going to the playoffs anyway. The NCFN will be won by the Packers and the Lions may get a wild card.
The Seahawks might win a couple of games against NFCW opponents but that’s as far as they will get. Minnesota
will finish around five hundred. Well there are my predictions, will find out in Jan. if they are any good.
I think the plan for the Hawks is to suck for Luck.

I don’t make predictions … an old acquaintance of mine (who was the starting center for the champions of the first two Super Bowls) told me once that in the NFL, the margin between the very worst and the very best on any given Sunday was razor thin.

Cutler being rattled is fully understandable. He had no protection & was hurried, knocked down or sacked on too many plays for him not to be rattled & upset. It was his butt hitting the ground & I am sure that got old real fast for him. Although I do agree that a leader should stay calm during the storm. Maybe he just forgot that? On the other hand, the Saint’s defense played a lot better yesterday than in week 1 so I can’t put it all on the Bear’s offensive line ;)
