2011 NFC Championship game
It won’t surprise anyone a politician is full of shit. Illinois governor Pat Quinn made a bet with Wisconsin governor Scott Walker over the Green Bay Packers NFC Championship tilt with the Chicago Bears. The loser of the bet agreed to work at a food pantry in the winner’s state wearing the opposing team’s gear. [...]
Bill Murray is awesome. He’s also a Chicago Bears fan, which makes him a little less… scratch that — a lot less awesome. Apparently, Murray was at the NFC Championship game last weekend, cheering on his Bears as they fell to the mighty Green Bay Packers. Sorry, Bill. Anyway, here’s a story we picked up [...]
During our NFC Championship game gathering, we were watching the Green Bay Packers thrash the Chicago Bears on two separate TVs. The small one outside was live. The larger one inside was DirectTV, hence a 10-second delay. Here’s how Sam Shields’ fateful interception to end the game played out in that scenario.
Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers was fined $10,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the NFC Championship game. The hit occurred at the 11:20 mark in the fourth quarter and it drew a personal foul penalty. It also looked cheap as fuck, but Rodgers didn’t [...]
I like Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson more every day. Woodson gave a rousing post-game locker room speech to the rest of the Packers after they beat the Chicago Bears on Sunday. At the end, Woodson takes a shot at president Barack Obama, who’s a Bears fan. Obama said he would attend the Super [...]
How does your starting quarterback not finish the NFC Championship game? Ask the Chicago Bears. Jay Cutler left the NFC Championship game in the third quarter with what turned out to be a sprained MCL. He then stood and watched the rest of the game from the sideline. You’d think they would have had to [...]
Steffen: If you’re like me, this past week of hype has been cringe-inducing. On one hand, it’s pretty sweet to have just about everyone on TV or the radio gushing about Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Of course, there are some detractors (Colin Cowherd spent most of Friday morning declaring Rodgers no better [...]
Barack Obama is a Chicago boy, so he’s a Chicago Bears fan. Well, fuck him. Such poor judgment makes him unfit to lead the free world. I kid, of course. Anyway, here’s a funny video the guys at PM Sports sent my way. In it, President Douche finds his inner circle has been infiltrated by [...]
Yesterday, I joined Steve Adler of Fantasy Daddy on his podcast, Sports Talk. Not surprisingly, we talked about the Green Bay Packers and the NFC Championship game. Knowledge was dispensed, I can assure you. You can listen below.
Like Rodney Dangerfield, the Chicago Bears get no respect. Just take a look at the results of this SportsNation poll. In case you can’t quite see it, every state in the nation other than Illinois is picking the Green Bay Packers to beat the Bears, this weekend. Although Indiana is red, meaning the highest percentage [...]
Terry McAulay, the referee from the first matchup between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers, has been assigned to the NFC Championship game. Why is that significant? The Packers committed a team-record 18 penalties in their first game with the Bears this season, essentially handing Chicago a win. Those 18 penalties added up to [...]
