I saw a game that was OK I guess. Da Bears squeeked out another win. Seahawks were pretty tough, I though the Bears were in trouble.....UNTIL THE GAME STARTED! DA BEARS.

I won a free lunch betting on that game!! Who said betting ruins families? I say it feeds them! Too bad the Vikes outplayed them and gave the game away vs the Bears the week earlier.... just sad

OK, obviously by my avatar and username you know I'm a cheesehead. So you can also guess that I am a big Favre fan and I would argue that he's still got it. I find all of the jokes about Madden's love affair with him amusing but have always been the first to say that its not Favre's doing. In fact if I was Brett, I would call Madden and tell him to keep my name out of his mouth because it just gets embarrassing after awhile. OK, so having said all of this, I have got to admit that Madden was just out of control with the Rex "Brett Favre" Grossman references last night. OMG, I counted at least five times, and I'm sure I missed a few. Even Collinsworth jumped on the bandwagon! Maybe one comparison would be OK...but over and over just gets sickening. And it happens during a game that doesn't even feature the Packers. Madden, please "relieve yourself" with a copy of the Packers media guide or something before going on camera next time. blush.gif My goodness!

Oh yeah, and kudos to the Bears. I am finding it hard to deny that they might actually be for real this year! I know the Bears-Packers rivalry is huge and all, but I would still rather have the Bears go than those bloody Vikings!

I missed it, was driving home from watching the twins win the division.

I was shocked when I saw the score. That is impressive, especially against seattle.

Better cross your fingers and hope they dont fade to black like the white sox did.

Green and Gold, that was a refreshing post... the part about Madden needing to just shut up! I heard that and starting laughing! He sounded like a drunk fool with that horrid babbling! He said... "you see how Rex rolled right looking for the short pass and when it wasn't thee looked deep and heaved it downfield, just like Brett Favre does"!!! OH MY GAHD is what went through my mind and he continues to lose credibility with me....

P.S. Favre can't play one good game and be considered back right? I still think any team that gets a rush on him will force him into Favre, err, I mean dumb mistakes.

Green and Gold thank you for the above post. As a life long fan of Da Bears and football in general I have been beatin to death with the Madden comments for far too long during Bears/Packers meetings and Monday nightgames in general for far too long.

Just beacuse Rex is throwing off his back foot and jumping around after releasing a pass does not mean he looks like or is immitating Favre.

When he started that crap last night I looked at my wife and shook my head, she just smiled at me, no words needed.

I was waiting for the comparisons of Brett and Rex with the other standards:

"Brett is like a big kid out there..."

"Brett just has fun..."

"Brett was just trying too hard, his competitive spirit got in the way..."

I've always wondered if John Madden tries to talk to Bret Favre while standing at the urinal. Which, we all know, is against the man code.

I think Madden probably tries to do a lot more than just talk to Favre while standing at the urinal. shocked.gif

I noticed his Favre comments too last night and thought what in the heck is he doing talking about Favre?

Overall he has been an entertaining guy to listen to in his earlier days, but dementia is a cunning and baffling foe. Hope that's not the reason. I guess he won't be doing tonight's game, so maybe he had to get it outta his system???????????

Yes Windy, that was nothing short of a beat down. I have never seen Hasselback look so frustrated. The Bears schedule is fairly light. They should have an excellent record.

I do see one similarity with Farve. Grossman sees an open reciever where only he and Farve would. If the Bears are to be upset, it will because Rexxy runs out of luck and has a three pick game. All that said, Grossman looks very poised out there. If he stays healthy the NFC Championship game is in their future.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.

      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park, or below Cathedral High School @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd
      I guess a crayfish pattern might work up there eh?
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
