Re: Week 3: Bears at Cardinals 3:25 Sunday, on Fox

So, um, this game is happening today. Bears are a 5-point favorite on the road, which would be kinda cool if it wasn't for the fact that the Cardinals have lost their first two games by a combined score of 58-6. Now it feels kind of insulting. Laying the points and taking the under on 40.5 points b...

Re: Politics, but not weather or journalism or weather journalism

There is no right away for women to respond to sexual assault for these people. None, short of just submitting. If you want to see an example of an MRA petri dish, go to bleacher nation comments (if you have the stomach for it). All the "easily-made fake allegations", "people deserve...

The Knoblach story out of Minnesota is particularly infuriating. His daughter *did* tell people and *did* go to the police and still got told "well, it's weird, but dads will be dads."

No, it's still a terrible take, and people try to trot it out for everything from The Wizard of Oz to The Matrix ; genuinely good movies don't somehow atrophy because of poor imitators of the filmmaking or the stories or the characters or whatever.

Then it's worked. 50% of Democratic House and Senate nominees in races that had no incumbents are women. That's a record by a wide margin.

I hope the U.S. never gets a promotion/relegation system just to spite the people who won't stop complaining about it.

Assuming fair elections are taking place for the next few years, the *second* Democrats get control of both houses and the presidency at the same time, they need to cram through statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico.

Is Dr. Ford actually going to testify now? If she doesn't, Kavanaugh gets confirmed. If she does and Kavanaugh still gets confirmed, the Dems shot at the Senate increases to about 50/50 IMO. It's unclear. Republicans are demanding she testify under unworkable conditions or not at all. But that coul...

Re: Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears MNF on ESPN 7:15PM

I don't think anything involving having to worry about whether our No. 2 overall picked QB is any good is a 'best case scenario.'

*Maybe* if he is a problem we can still salvage a real championship window out of this year or next year, but it's gonna be pretty hard.

Re: Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears MNF on ESPN 7:15PM

Sorry, I meant two. You're lucky if you get two years out of an elite defense. We can't complain about Trubisky looking like balls because it's just two games, but two games from the defense (one of which they got carved up in a 4th-quarter collapse) means we should pencil them in to be elite for th...

Re: Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears MNF on ESPN 7:15PM

Apparently there are people that aren't too happy about this win. I understand being concerned about Trubisky. But to be disappointed that a team that won 13 games over the previous 3 years didn't have a 3-score win in the 2nd game of a new regime seems a bit much. Don't know what was expected. Thi...

lost in the curmudgeonry of yesterdays performance is the fact that Mitch is getting better: a nearly 75% completion rate against the Seahawks. baby steps that I'm sure we all wish were giant steps. That isn't because he is getting better. That's because they stopped letting him throw anything othe...

Re: Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears MNF on ESPN 7:15PM

Every quarterback under and overthrows some balls. Expecting Mitch to be accurate on every throw is not realistic. I only remember the one underthrow (the int) and two overthrows (in the flat and down the seam). Thats...pretty "normal" performance, especially from a QB who is still pretty...
