And guess what We made it to a second episode of Bears brunch.
It's Sunday morning at 11 a.m.
Here on Facebook.
YouTube now and SportsCastr.
I'm chasing Amy, also known as Lebanese.
Lemme on the instagrams and I've got the Shonda Danielle Shonda underscored in yell at the instagrams.
How are you? I'm doing well. What you're saying my name Wrong.
I think you've decided to change my name.
You have been having such a fun morning.
I'm Shanda eso for everyone.
I will never be Shonda.
But I will always be Shanda, Danielle, Whatever.
I know that's how people feel about it.
They change it all the time and usually I don't correct them.
But since it's you I was waiting for a little cute video.
Where was our cute video or No, I just not going to see it this time.
It's all on the other side, like waiting for it. Post production.
I'll send it to you, though, if you wanna watch it all the time.
I was so excited last time, but I'm so glad that nobody could see me because I was all, like, giddy.
So I was all waiting for it, and then it didn't happen.
I kind of got disappointed.
Yeah, no, um it just it it's on the other end.
Now. We got fancy.
I got lights now, and I gotta sign back here.
It says Bears brunch.
I noticed waiting stuff for my shelving, though.
I've got so much freaking shelving in this place, like and nothing.
Nothing to go on it.
I wouldn't give him to you, though, but I have a bears potato head.
He is my favorite of my bears collection because he is an actual build will potato head.
And so you can take his little football suit off and all that.
I've got a Willson Contreras bobblehead.
I got, uh, Chris Bryant.
What about all the cooler stuff that you have that I do have an Alice Cooper, uh, doll over there? Because I love metal music and let me in Motor head.
Welcome to Bears brunch.
Brought to you by a ****** knife fight.
And now Papa John's, We're moving up in the world like shoot.
We got sponsors.
Second showing were at Papa Johns.
One sponsor, second show to sponsors were doing great.
Yeah, yeah, we also got some bad **** to talk about because last game is horrible.
We lost by six to the Minnesota Vikings, but that brings us to and even 500.
So I guess we're still kind of winning.
And we'll win this week because it's a by week, which is always a weird thing to say.
I know it's a big joke and everyone's like, Oh, we're so funny.
It's so funny, Like, were this and that No, who cares? You know, because whatever were the Bears were used to losing.
And we're used to things not being cool and not being fun.
And I'm really sorry about that.
Bears fans and even Pat McAfee said he feels sorry for Bears fans because we don't deserve it this year.
I figured a lot of those comments that people were really and I honestly wanted to be like, I feel like this is more of a cultural.
You guys were just Everybody feels like they get to be whining now because, as Bears fans were you really expecting different? I mean, because, like, this is kind of what we do.
We are like, we win, and then we go down for a while and then we'll win.
And then we'll so, like everybody whining this year, I just feel like it goes with 2020 that, like, we're just whiny fans this year as well.
Well, I did with the trend.
Yeah, it is one of those things where it is a whiny season.
Um, I mean, we're all gonna wind.
We're always gonna want Matt Nagy gone.
We're always gonna want, you know, whatever is going on, we don't want it to happen.
Um, but we don't have a choice.
It's it's a bad deal.
We had a bad little deal that we're gonna get into here in just a second.
Nick Foles injury Day to day, Mitch Strabinsky.
Day to day Montgomery concussion protocol.
I mean, a depleted, uh, just a depleted deal.
It's ah, not a good day.
And it's not a good time. Embarrassed country.
And I'm glad for the because of a lot of the things like the injuries and co vid.
And in the last episode you did bring up if there isn't a lot of teams that are dealing with a covert problems like we are we unfortunately so I am glad that we get some break for everybody's back from from from co vid protocol every I mean that. That's that's fine.
You know, it's it is what it is.
But yes, we lost 19 2 13.
I lost is a fan.
I want on the bet.
We'll talk about that at the end of this show.
What's gonna happen there? Um, but yeah, we've Nick Foles took a little spill.
The last thing that I read is it's a deep hip bruise and hip pointer, and he's day to day.
Sounds like it should be two weeks.
Uh, I mean, he's got two weeks basically to recover.
Uh, so they say he's day to day.
They're hoping that he's gonna be all right.
Looks like we might be getting Mitch back.
Hopefully, he's day to day as well, so they were thinking that he might be ready for Week 12.
Matt Nagy said that in a presser the other day, Uh, but there's not a lot of information floating around that people could grab onto because he's day to day, and so they're just kind of monitoring it.
They're not going to say he's out 4 to 6 weeks or anything like that.
But you gotta wonder, how long will he be able to do this? Yeah, and I really, um I really was reading a lot of that.
And I was reading about his hip injury, and I didn't read where they were saying that the day to day I read that they basically just said that he's not coming back, that he will end up being the one that comes back to play like that.
His hip injury like, but they'll he'll be the one that comes back.
Yeah, You're gonna listen day today? They don't know.
I mean, they don't want to say, Yeah, he's coming back.
And then, boom, something happens.
They're gonna keep it day today.
They're going to keep it hush hush in the old Bears camp because that's what you do is a football team.
You don't wanna let anybody know what you're dealing with.
You want the team the next week that you're playing to think that the best team is coming out to play and that they're gonna win.
I mean, you just But at this point, you understand, You know, you'll be weak.
Week 11, and ah, the bears will be, uh, the Bears.
That's how it always is.
So, for week 12, I guess when we come back, so take Thanksgiving.
Because you've got a long haul coming for you.
Yeah, I'm gonna be a fun one.
Um, you know, And that was the thing will actually come back, though.
I mean, do you actually think he would come back and gave him 12? Because I honestly don't think I'll come back in week 12.
I think he'll be back for I think he can be.
I hoping that Mitch Strabinsky is better.
I mean, at this point, Nick Foles is not anything that we were promised Nick Foles to be, Uh it doesn't look like it was play calling.
We'll talk about that here in a minute.
But it was very, um it's just not good.
Nick Foles is not who we were told Nick Foles was going to be.
And I don't like that.
I do agree with that.
I do think that he was he's not been what we expected.
And so I do think that having someone out and then having who we thought was gonna be this amazing backup and turns out that you can't move the ball and you don't know what to do with it or you don't know where to throw it.
Uh, turns out that it worked against us, and I think that a lot of people are saying, like are not saying I think that a lot of people are wondering that if we made the right call in taking him, are picking him if he is the right one because, you know, maybe Mitch wasn't so bad as we thought, so I don't know.
Well, Mitch got the problem.
What Mitch is problem was Mitch was a young quarterback making young quarterback, mistake's, and Matt Nagy wants his job.
They all want their job.
They're all trying to figure out how to hold on to the job.
And as soon as things happen, they pulled him out.
It was there. Okay, we're done. We're done.
But yet you've got folds doing the same **** thing.
And they're not pulling him out there not saying Oh, no, We can't have him.
We can't have this. Can't have that.
Do you think with foals? I mean, do you think it's young quarterback problems or anything? It's like Nick Foles isn't young.
Nick Foles is a freaking one champion.
You That's what you just said. I was comparing.
I was like, Are you saying this is really young? Because I was Really? I was big.
Nick has been around Big ****.
Nick took the took the Eagles.
I mean, problems.
Like what? Hang on this but Robiskie making young quarterback Mistake's they.
It's like the leashes, the leashes on the wrong dog.
Okay, I was just wondering the comparison because I was like, Wait a minute, he's making.
He's making bonehead decisions.
He's not anything that we wanted him to be or that he was made the boat be I mean, it was weird, So yeah, falls.
I was like, Wait a minute, it's This is not the same Nick Foles.
Not good, but it looks like he's gonna be back.
And it's gonna be better than the bull**** to, you know, minute 40 that we had to deal with Bre.
I mean, that looked awful, but, you know he probably third time.
It's done a ball in the past year and a half.
But what was gonna be the big topic before the Nick Foles injury happened was Bill Lazor.
Oh, Bill Lazor going in for the, uh, play call.
Good for you, Bill.
Didn't do anything different.
Really? Looked like you guys were still calling the same plays.
Nagy seemed like he had a little bit more control on the sidelines was able to look at things from a different perspective.
But I don't know if that was really you know, that big of a difference? Um, we still lost by six.
It wasn't creative.
It wasn't really anything.
Ah, I don't know what else to say.
Oh, I mean, we can't move and e felt like like a quarterback.
It's not gonna change anything.
Yeah, so I mean, we did make a great change and the fact that he's gave up play calling, but it can't move the ball.
I mean, what does it matter? I mean, you've changed quarterbacks on gyu changed play callers, So I mean, now, when we look at it, is it really like, Are we talking about administrative problems or talk about player problems.
Well, you're gonna have coaching problems.
You don't have a good you don't have a good offensive scheme going.
Um, I mean, you need somebody in there that but you also don't have an offensive line to really do any scheme.
I don't have an offensive line that if you don't have a quarterback that can throw, you're not going to run the ball because you don't have an offensive line making holes.
I mean, that's that's a given.
So you've got to go to the air and you gotta have a hands up.
I mean, there it was like, I feel like they weren't even trying those.
They were just, you know, they they're just not skilled.
They're not skilled at at their position.
So, you know, And they could pay lots of money, lots of money, lots.
But not as much as like, I don't think that I don't think there.
I don't know where they're out on the league average, but I don't think that it's, uh I don't think more than me.
They pay, they get paid it, I would have to make my only fans job to make their money.
Hey, you should.
You should get into the only fans job.
That's where the money is at.
Apparently I mean it, Z.
It's just it's a horrible thing and the offensive line has been exposed because of Nick Foles Inability Toe move.
And he's not a mobile quarterback.
And we know that.
And it's it's sad to watch him have to try to move.
That's why the injury happened when you watch the injury.
It was just kind of like a peewee football thing where someone just grabbed him and just threw him down really hard.
Hey, role, That was It wasn't like and it wasn't a hard, hard It didn't look like a hard hit, but it it was the way he landed.
No, I wouldn't have wanted to do it.
So then they carted him off and it was, you know, everybody's like, Oh, ****.
I mean, that's basically what came out of my mouth while I was sitting there was Oh, ****.
We're gonna try to drive the ball down.
He's had two game winning drives this season from behind.
We may have a shot.
Something may open up.
Something might happen and boom it did.
He got sacked like he always does, and he got thrown to the ground really hard.
And now we're here to pick up the bull**** pieces, and it's ridiculous.
But that's not Bill Lazor.
That's what we're talking about.
We're talking about Bill Lazor.
My question with the bill laser is, um I mean, it was the same play calls.
I mean, there wasn't anything that seemed to be different.
There wasn't any like perspective.
Of who? You know, Maybe we should try this.
And, you know, on this second down or this third.
And, you know, there was no, like, ****ytical thing that I saw that happened.
Any different to strategy or anything like that.
Same boring play calls from the same boring scheme.
Just a different guy calling it into the headset, which gave Nagy a little bit more of some wiggle room and the ability to delegate and to be involved on both sides of the ball.
That being said, how long is this experiment gonna go on? Is Nagy going to have a short leash on him like he had with Drabinsky? Or is he gonna let this thing go? Is he gonna let him have the rest of the season.
I think he should probably let him have the rest of the seasons.
Let's see what he does with Green Bay.
Let's see what he does in other areas.
Let's let's have some fun with it.
Ah, but at the same time, I don't know really what we've got going on, um, on that aspect of it, as far as where he's gonna wanna be and where he thinks that Bill Lazor should be called.
He it worked in Cincinnati for him.
He, you know, he turned an offense around when he became the coordinator.
But is play calling really gonna make me that much of a difference within the organization as far as, uh, as far as your play calling ability.
If the plays that you're calling suck, that's that's the real issue.
That's the real question is on, and I go back to the players.
I really think it's a lot of the, um comes to the players in this point because well, yeah, players to execute the play.
Yeah, I think completely what you said about Bill Lazor.
I didn't see anything in the last game that would have signified that was, like, definitely him versus, like, Nagy.
I mean, it wasn't anything that I saw.
So I'm definitely hoping that he and I wouldn't think that he would take it away for the Green Bay game.
I would think that at least he would keep it out the rest of the season because, um, we only have six more games.
I mean, after the Green Bay game, I would line is probably gonna be mad.
I mean, it's not really anyone that you're looking.
We're really up against it. Like the heavy hitters.
We really went through the death part of our season.
I mean, why not let him do the next six and see? Well, the the problem is, is all of we knew Green Bay was gonna be there.
We knew Green Bay was going Thio, you know, have that top spot.
We thought we were gonna have it.
I mean, we really felt good that the bears were gonna be there.
The Bears started out there and then we've lost four straight.
So you've got almost one month. Exactly.
Uh, we went and went, so I don't know what the last month did, but yeah.
789 and 10 weeks.
789 and 10 were all straight losses.
Before that, they had the loss against the Colts.
Uh, that kind of little fluke loss, but they've got Green Bay coming up, you know, Week 12.
13, they've got the lions and the lions are on the up.
Now they're going back.
You've got Houston on 14, and then you've got the Minnesota Vikings again.
You've got the JAG wires, and then you've got Green Bay to finish out the season.
So you got Green Bay two more times.
You've got, you know, and Vikings beat Green Bay.
And I was hoping that we would have beat the Vikings, which would have given me a little bit of faith that we would have beat Green Bay.
But then the Vikings.
Yeah, but the season, though like this season, is so weird because you gotta look at when they played, there was no pre season.
So there were those weird games were like teams that didn't even have players, that we're winning games against teams that had players, and it's like Well, I mean, he hasn't thrown a ball in two months. Sorry.
Like we're still working out kinks like the first three weeks of the season was nothing, but it was training camp.
That was the first, you know, 2 to 3 weeks of football.
So you have these weird games that happen, and you you're not quite sure what's happening with it.
Um, but now we're into this full stride, and you can see that where teams that were kind of sitting at the bottom like the Vikings people thought the Vikings were selling off there and then, like week five or whatever, when they traded off their big pick, um, on the defensive side of the ball and then the Lions.
Nobody had faith in that whole organization with Matt.
Patricia, um, but now they're kind of on this upswing like things were starting to, you know, you're like, it's like that kid that's in fourth or fifth grade that hits puberty, and everybody's like, Oh, he's a giant.
And now we're all like sop****res and we're like, Oh, we're all caught up to you now, Bud, like you're just a 5 ft nine kid like the rest of us.
That's where we're at in the NFC North.
We've got Green Bay, who's all He's right here, who's always gonna be in that top 12 tier because they've got Aaron Rodgers.
Then there's, you know, this whole little slide deal that goes on between, you know, the Vikings and the Bears and the Lions.
And so you've got this whole thing is happening.
So right now, when we should be staying and increasing were dropping.
Well, everybody else is getting up.
There were still second place five and five.
We need the NFC West to just **** off the rest of season and not do anything.
But that doesn't look like that's gonna happen.
Um, everybody's playing lights out football because they know Hey, this is the time of the season we hit Thanksgiving.
This is that grind that we've got to get through.
We've got to start winning, winning, winning, winning, winning and playing.
And that's what the focus is.
I think Bill Lazor, you know, maybe now that they've had a had a week, they've got this off week to figure out what to do.
I think maybe things might look a little different and Green Bay may get a run for their money if the quarterback situation, if the quarterback situation get fixed.
Nagy was quoted saying the actually using the insanity quote, saying that he's definitely going to take this time and look at what they're doing because he doesn't wanna be obviously repeating.
And he knows he drew repeating mistakes.
Which to me I like it at least the cognizant awareness that he's at least putting forth.
And it may be it's just for front, maybe giving a play calling.
But I at least like that he's saying, Hey, we are messing up in some areas and we're being able to see the repeat pattern.
Let's take this time and look at it And again it might just be lip service, But I enjoy the lip service that at least it's giving its, You know, its as a fan, and as the whiny fans that are out there, at least he's saying he's sees it and he's trying.
I mean, what I mean, You can say you want more, but at least that's I mean, we're already where we're at, you know, At least I think the thing with it is he's saying that, but really, the thing that Matt Nagy needs to update.
Is his resume like it's done? The experiments done, it's tossed its's out.
Um, I know there there are.
They're not going to say that.
But every single person, all the way from GM down knows that if this **** doesn't turn out, everybody is looking for a new job.
You think that they'll just clean house this year? Clean house, They'll they'll They'll rebuild.
They've got to do something.
I'm interested in seeing how they're gonna look at the draft this year, what the plane is because they've missed.
So it's hard in New York, Boston and Chicago to do sports.
It's It's really hard, like the fans there are on.
All three are cutthroat.
They don't care.
Uh, they want wins.
They want to win.
They don't care about what's going on in your personal life, what you've got going on anywhere else.
You show up, you go to the field, you go to the court, go to the rink and you win.
That's what they expect.
That's how things are because they've always had great sports teams.
Well, I mean great as in, like they have good fans.
People love the sports there, so they wanna win.
You wanna win for them because they love you.
When you win, you become a God.
And that's what everybody wants in sports world when you take that ball and I was so I was like That's why we picked him.
That's why in the last game, he's still my favorite. Mac was still.
I still believe that if we would have an offense that could back up that defense right now, that that was still like he was still such a smart pick.
Like I'm still defense and special teams is a is amazing.
Yeah, And so, like, I was like, Yeah, and I thought that I thought that his mo mentum was really gonna turn that game around.
I thought like that he was, you know, like gonna and then that ball can't move.
And I was like, I'm very defeated watching it.
So you know that I mean the Bears defense.
We don't really talk about the Bears defense because we don't have to talk about the Bears.
Defense bears the Bears.
Defense is great, you know.
It's a it's a good and the and the thing is is to is we ride the We ride this whole deal, where we just constantly ***** about the the offense.
There's There's a lot of stats that will tell you that the Bears offense is not the worst offense in the league.
Uh, they're just playing teams that are, they're just not scoring.
And that's the problem, like they 17 like, what was the average like 17.
3 points a game? You can't win that way when you when you got to score 24 to win because the other offenses that you're playing are scoring on offense, you have to be able to score.
That's great that you have a special teams that can run one back for you here and there or defensive stop that you can get here there.
But if you're not capitalizing on what that's doing, you're not doing anything.
You're just ****ing it off.
Just get rid of it.
Like, you know, don't even worry about coming out on the field.
It's one of those things where it's like I would almost argue, Hey, let's put some cornerbacks in.
Well, let's put some receivers in as a cornerback and be like, Hey, Look, Aaron Rodgers is your quarterback.
He's gonna throw the ball to you, go catch the ball.
Like if that's the case.
Like if our offensive core in our offensive leadership a quarterback is just that ****ty like we've got to do something like the defense has got to step it up and just to be like, All right, we're gonna run pick six all day long, and that's all we can do to be able to help our team.
When you had your When you have your special teams in your defense outscore offense in games, that's not good.
I agree completely.
It was really a game that I just kind of felt defeated on because, like, if you can't score, how do you win? I mean, you can, you can.
That's it was just kind of a like watching it being like, How how do you make it better? You move the ball, How do you make the eye? And then it's kind of a you know? Yep.
And so the only good thing about this week is that it's a by week.
Eso I have a little bit of time to, you know, kill on, do something uh, maybe do some looking in tow.
What Bill Lazor's gonna do, Maybe called Bill up and say, Hey, Bill, what we doing? But I'm also this weekend.
Yeah, he might take it.
Are you Are you gonna do the ****** knife fight this week? Maybe.

So basically, I play it every weekend I get on, I find my match ups and I look at it and I say, Okay, here's what's gonna happen So it's like on the last one with, um, the Bears and Vikings.
I had foals and I had cousins and I had to decide who's gonna do better.
Who's gonna have mawr of their? Basically, It's a stat line.
Um, and so all right, here's the stats.
Here's what we're saying they're going to do.
Here is where the averages are.
Do you think you're gonna doom or or less make money? It's easy.
Go to Tokyo and their matching and they're giving $50 away Cream.
I bleeding heart.
I just I have a hard time betting whenever I'm not gonna be betting for.
The Bears were not betting on this.
You're playing lines.
I'm just I if I'm just saying that, well, don't play.
Don't play the Bears game.
If you have a problem saying Hey, my quarterback sucks.
I don't have a problem saying my quarterback sucks so I could do that.
That's my money leading hard because it's just I'm just a fan.
Well, yeah, that's the problem.
Sometimes you have tow figure out what you're a fan of.
You're a fan of money.
Yes, I cheat Papa John's.
And so I don't have to pay for Papa John's if I'm doing really good on ****** Knife fight, eh? So I went ahead and I did the $50 and they gave me 50 bucks.
So I had 100 bucks to play.
And everybody should.
Well, if you enjoy that, you should.
Everybody should enjoy playing.
It's a lot of fun.
I just don't I just don't like when my bears are not looking.
When my bears air looking like this, I don't enjoy anything because I lose bets because I end up bedding for the Bears even though I know somehow that they're not gonna pull it off and I'll end up half naked somewhere.
Yeah, that's why I mean definitely should probably not bet like that again.
Um, so turning our focus.
Now, let's stop looking in the past.
Let's look forward.
A zoo we do and all, you know, filled relationships.
When you break up, you look forward to what you have to look forward to.
And so, unfortunately, we have to look forward to the Green Bay game, the Green Bay game.
We have first, and that's exciting.
And then, yes, Green Bay.
Um, I want to say we're gonna win because I'm a Bears fan and we're gonna always win.
And it's not It's really not.
I don't I mean, because we can't move the ball.
What are we going to do against green bag? Especially? We're coming back.
I really feel like they're gonna put folds back in.
I really think that's what's gonna happen.
And I think the ball is going to do.
I mean, unless I mean Laser and Maggie come up with some kind of magic in this bye week that I don't no.
I mean, obviously, I don't know about everything, and they maybe they're gonna make some bears magic, but I just don't see the Green Bay bait.
Very good, because like they don't really have a problem with being able to score.
And that's kind of how you win the game.
And that's in sports.
So well, you got the Packers or seven and two right now.
Um, we'll say that they are way higher in rankings than we are in pretty much overall everything, um, their ninth and passing 10th and receiving 18th and first downs, 14th in rushing and fifth in points.
Which is not good for us.
Because in points for the Bears, for people that are keeping up with all of these rankings 28th out of 32 teams.
Who's below us? Uh, I don't know.
I'm like, who sucks worse right now Jacksonville or something like that? I mean, yeah, there are a few.
Yeah, it's, um it's not cool.
So seven and 25 and five are the records perspective right now.
It looks like outside of that quarterback issue, everybody should be back.
Montgomery should be back from concussion protocol.
Uh, the offensive line players that were out for the co vid.
They've all been, um, you know, reactivated or whatever.
Uh, it's, um it's not looking good.
they've got Aaron Rodgers, and all we have is Mitt, Strabinsky and Big ****.
Nick and I don't even know why I continue to call him Big ****.
Nick, because it's it's not that good.
It's not a good day.
I don't like it.
Um, by, um, I just I honestly just don't think they're gonna put Mitch back in if they need to, because Mitch can hide the offensive line and he can move.
I I'm so I think that they should.
I just I just if if we were better, I'm not betting against you on this one.
But if we were betting against something, I would think they're gonna put fold back in and he's not coming back.
You bet me on this one.
The only bet that I would take on this one is that you have to drive completely naked all the way from your house to my house.
How would that would have to stop to get gas? Well, I was gonna say how that Yeah, that would be the bet.
Like I would be like, Hey, you have to stop off and pick up milk.
I'm out of milk.
Grab milk naked.
Yeah, it's just like I don't know.
I don't know, Dr.
Yeah, And I would have an Aaron Rodgers jersey waiting for you to have to change into when you got there.
E c. My bets are going downhill.
I'm definitely not gonna be betting this week.
Make them count.
I've lost Weird.
I've had to cut weird facial hair earlier this season.
Betting with my buddy.
That's a Giants fan.
I had, like, I had, like, a mutton chop bulldog thing going on.
Well, my I am going to be We're going to be live and in person somewhere for this game, right? Yes.
It looks like that's going to be the plan as long as I make it back from Chicago for Thanksgiving or from Thanksgiving? Yes, because you're going away on vacation for Thanksgiving.
It's not vacation.
Really, though, um, vacation.
Vacation is where you get to relax.
I don't know that I've read I'm a parent.
I don't know that I've ever relaxed on vacation.
Yeah, like luckily, I have people that I'm that I'm going to see that really miss my kids so they'll have her and play with her and take her and knew all the you know the fun.
What I mean, what you can do in the time like this.
Like everything's pretty much getting shut down again.
So at least we'll be somebody else to kind of entertainer and have fun and gives me a time to sit back.
But you never relax because those those settings air always a little intense.
There's always that one family member that wants to show up and fight, but we'll talk.
We got Thanksgiving coming up, and we haven't even made it down our list yet.
Um, of the things that we're talking about.
So on the Green Bay, so they need.
They need to push some deep.
They need to do something different on offense.
The defense has got to stay strong.
They've got to get to Aaron Rodgers.
They've got to take away time from Aaron Rodgers.
They've got, you know, and that's gonna be the biggest issue on defense.
They're gonna have to make stops to be able to get the offense out.
The offense is gonna have to eat up time.
The offense is gonna have to take drives down the field, take away, eat away at the clock, Eat away, Eat that clock up, take away anything Aaron Rodgers could do.
So the defense has got to be there.
They've got to shut things down.
They've gotta get to take aways.
They've got to do all of those things.
But then the offense has to come out on the field and do their job.
Plain and simple.
That's how they're gonna be able to sneak a win away.
If the offense will show up, move the ball down the field, drive the ball, have the defense eat up time.
I mean, that's that's the basis Elementary idea of football coaching one on one.
But you have to do it.
And this is the game that you have to do it in because you don't have a choice.
That's really I mean, and I just with the injuries, Uh, and how they've performed it anyway, it's stacked against us. Yes.
So what is the predictions for you? What do you What do you calling on this game? I know you're gonna give the friendly bears.
Oh, the bear's gonna upset.
I'm gonna be 24 21.
But let's be realistic here.
What do you say? And what do you thinking? I mean, we can't do that to our fans.
We can't be optimistic.
I can't be optimistic.
I don't even know I'm like I'm like Poppy in person.
Like you're telling me.
I can't be optimistic If anyone wants to know what we're like in person.
I'm like Poppy off the trolls and he is like, branch very much like Branch.
You should be from Chicago because they are some of the most cynical people.
I grew up in the Midwest.
I grew up around, you know, all that definitely have the personality to fit them.
They are art ass is they are the ones that air.
They don't like my bleeding heart as much way All are just like, Oh, here we go.
We we never expect the best.
Always the worst.
I mean that Z, that's life as a Midwesterner and a life as a It's cold.
That's the problem.
It's cold and it's kind of bleak.
And you just once October hits until March, you're just frozen heart never has time to thaw out because you get those weird storms that it's cold until April.
Poor poor branch.
I love it, though.
So what's your prediction when we got here, Shanda? Um, realistic predictions.
Or like what? I wanna say. Prediction.
Let's go. A realistic prediction here real quick.
Well, realistically, I don't think the Bears were gonna win, but I don't ever say that out loud of my mouth.
I think this is one of the like I can count on one hand how many times I've said that Because, like, I just I just don't even say it out loud.
I don't even put the bad karma in the air.
I try to always speak good things about the Bears.
So, um, realistically, I would predict Green made a win just because of the stats, because we're not moving the ball.
Do I want to say the Bears, they're gonna win? Yes.
Every game I want to say the Bears, they're gonna win, But realistically, like we don't have it, um, I can't.
We're not even scoring were averaging.
What was it like? You said 17 as our average right now, So, e, you can't even you can't even win a game.
I mean, that's not even saying that we're gonna make 24.
I can really say that Green Bay could make 24 realistically say that they could probably win with a score of 24.
And then no matter what the Bears air, not getting there like that's that's sad.
That's a sad like so, like, Green Bay 24 Bears anything under it, because if they get to like if they got to 20 I would e would probably do your naked adventure.
But you know what I mean.
Just because, like, they're not even and that's sad to me, that is a sad just like s.
So you're gonna say, like, 24.
I mean, really, yes.
That's what I had on it.
I'm thinking 24 17.
Um, that's that's realistically my prediction.
Um, I would hope that I was wrong and it would be 24 17 and something would happen, but I just I really I don't see that happening.
Um, were about the same again, and I just, uh, that's my realistic prediction.
And because I do again, I never want to say the out loud.
I just always flip it and predict the other, even if Because But yeah, I know.
Those were really Those are my stats to at what I really think is gonna happen this game because I just So we're going to say, because I'm the optimist that Green Bay is going to take that 17 and the Bears, they're gonna be 24.
But in reality, so we also I'm taking the direct opposite.
Anytime you are against the Bears, that's what makes betting fun and gets if you don't have somebody going the opposite, that's just okay, We're deciding on this and we'll just go $5 out there and we don't get $5 back.
We'll just take our money back home.
But I am betting on Thanksgiving this year.
That's what I'm doing.
I am betting on Thanksgiving being the wind.
Even though things have gotten, you know, weird with the Corona again.
It's It's a good time.
I know you're you're you're staying home.
You said I'm gonna do the do the home and Thanksgiving.
I'm a heading out.
Uh, it'll be a lot of fun.
Um, I'm doing smoked bologna, taking a little of the South and taking it up to the North.
Um, I don't know that I've ever had smoked bologna.
I didn't know that they smoked balloon smoked bologna, and that's what the plan is right now.
Oh, smoked turkey Smoked bologna.
Yeah, and you just slice it up and you put it on a sandwich with some barbecue sauce and it's It's incredible.
It's good stuff.
You've had it before.
Yeah, I've had smoked bologna.
We smoked bologna all time.
Oh, yeah, very interesting.
Not like a Texas barbecue thing where people like in Texas, I've said smoked bologna in Texas a few times and they're like smoked bologna.
It's a tall I think it's a Tulsa thing.
Maybe maybe I remember getting to try Bologna for the first time as a teenager.
Yeah, I'm not a fan like I'll eat fried bologna.
Everyone's well, like a fried bologna sandwiches.
Real popular up here to Bologna in general in Tulsa, Oklahoma is real popular.
Um, so yeah, smoked Bologna Bologna investigation.
So I like to take it and slice it real thin after, like we've ate it that day.
The next day, go back, slice it real thin and make a smoked fried bologna sandwich.
Throw it in a skillet, fried up real quick.
Put some cheese on it.
A little bit of mus****.
You can do lettuce and tomato, too, if you want.
It sounds so much like Thanksgiving smoked bologna.
It's I mean, it's just It's one of those things that, like I throw out there, kind of like with Ritz crackers and some cheese and makes him like barbecue grown ass, Uh, Lunchables.
It's good snacking for that NFC North game, which is a game that people should probably keep an eye on.
So the Lions are playing Yeah, on their doing.
Well, I don't want to say that because, you know, but they're doing well.
But this is a game that the outcome can because Lions Air four and five, they're playing the Texans, which is two and seven.
So you know, you gotta play.
Both of them gonna play that you play the line, you play the lions.
Um, you play the lions right before you play the Texans.
Uh, Texans are on week 14 and the Lions are week 13.
So I'm just I'm the optimist.
I'm hoping that we're just gonna go green Bay and Lions, and it's just gonna We're gonna go three up is what I'm That's my my my heart.
My my Chicago heart is say, just once that you're going to go through.
Well, it would be nice if the Lions lost on on Thanksgiving.
It would be it would be great.
Um, well, because it was it would make them, you know, I understand. One six.
It would make the Texans three and seven.
So if you could go in on a loss those two weeks, um, that would be that would be a bang up thing for us.
I think I think we would all really like that.
Then you've got Thea got the old Cowboys and the Washington football team.
Yeah, you got You got the Cowboys game.
It's always a big one.
And then you got the Steelers game.
So it's It's always it's a day full of football.
And then my Notre Dame Fighting Irish play on Friday after that Black Friday.
Fun cheers for the Cowboys, sometimes the Cowboys.
And he was a Green Bay chair just because the Green Bay, because I'm a Bears fan, He's been wearing bears close forever and So I think it's I really think it's out of just like rebellion.
Like now the kids throw it long enough, they'll do the exact opposite.
So, unfortunately, me being a loyal Chicago fan has made my son a very unlike IOL.
Chicago Non Chicago fans are very loyal, non Chicago fan.
If they're not interested in, if you're not into it, then it's hard to push the push it so.
Here's for anyone that's not Chicago, and I basically I'm like, Oh, Chicago And that's why I'm cheering for and he's like, Yeah, I'll cheer for anyone but Chicago So we kind of have the difference is so his Green Bay chair in his room.
So he's definitely excited about the game because he wants Green Bay to win.
So he my Children also knew that I was betting and I was gonna have to wear booty shorts, and my daughter patted me and was like Sorry about your booty shorts.
I was like, All right, we go.
So we are planning tended differently.
Planning to do this live together on Sunday of the Green Bay game.
So not this Sunday, but the Sunday after that coming up.
We plan on doing that live.
It's a night game at 7 25.
Will do this show at 11 o'clock in the morning like we always do.
And then we will do a special live stream.
Um, I'm not sure how we're sending that out, what we're gonna do if it's just going to be a SportsCastr. Exclusive.
What you should go to SportsCastr dot com and that Find it.
It's a lot of fun.
That's where if there were, a lot of you guys are finding us at.

You can watch that or something that's just straight NFL.
They have it all their SportsCastr dot com, and it's not with its SportsCastr.
C a s t r dot com But we're going to be doing a, uh, some type of livestream, whether in person or not.
Kind of depends on you know whether, uh and Hopefully, I don't get stuck somewhere or anything like that.
It will be a lot of fun.
We're looking at Savas Domino's pizza.
Hanging out depends on his eso.
If he gets stuck somewhere, I am out of having to have my ass hanging.
No, that's not true at all.
We can always do it here.
I can always just blow up the screen just like I did right there.
So see, it'll be fine.
We just have to sit in some weird position or something.
We can figure it out.
We'll make the magic work.
But that's the plan is probably Savas Thanos Pizza in Tulsa, which is my favorite Chicago joint.
They have Italian beefs, which are hard to find down here.
That's what I'm all about.
I'm all about the sandwiches, and I am kind of a deli connoisseur, and I miss all of my sandwiches that I love to eat.
Um, it's kind of on a sandwich King.
That's what I love about Thanksgiving leftovers.
I do like a turkey burger sandwich with corn bread stuffing on top of it and like the gravy.
And then I make a cranberry jalapeno jam and put that on time.
You are very interesting.
So it's It's good times. It's good stuff.
Uh, if you fry, if you could deep fry the turkey to If you don't have turkey burgers, it's really good.
And then I put a little wedge of, like, pecan pie or pumpkin pie on top of it.
A little garnish pictures of these things.
You need to start taking pictures of your start doing the food pictures of sandwiches and things that I eat.
So I mean, you need it because you you sound very It's very interesting to hear you talk about food.
Yeah, I love it.
So we're about 14 minutes out 13 minutes out from the, uh, from the first game for the weekend.
Don't not watch football. Watch football.
There's lots of football to watch.
Just you're not gonna watch your bears.
