Welcome to my inaugural post for BearsGab.com. Thanks to Matt Loede for bringing me into the Sports Gab Network.
How did I come to the title Bear Nekkid Truth? Well, the truth hurts…and so does watching The Bears this season. The nekkid truth was inspired by one former Bear Great…Mike Singletary.
Dropping trouser as a statement of where your team is at, what your team is doing and where your team is going is a very pointed statement. It is simple, non-confusing and effective! It is also exactly what our beloved Bears have been doing all season. The only difference is the Bears have been exposing themselves to their competition, figuratively and literally. Sorry Devin Hester, I know you didn’t mean to expose your backside.
If you say, “We’re a running team,” at a press conference you are telling opposing defenses your game plan. If you say “We get off the bus running,” you’re exposing yourself. If you say “We’d like to get the ball to player X more often,” who do you thing the opposition is going to key on?
On the opposite side of the ball the Bears do the same thing. “We’re going to stop the run first.” “We’re going to get pressure with our front four.” “We like who our starters are.” Is it any secret that the Bear’s competition knows how to beat them?
Not only do the Bears expose themselves as far as the game plan, but it trickles down to the players, especially the quarterback. How many times have Bears quarterbacks focused on the intended receiver? Interceptions should speak to the truth.
If the Bears are going to expose themselves, either do it in the locker room or don’t do it at all. Nobody in Bear Nation wants to see your asses, but worse than that we don’t want to see your asses handed to you.
