The Cubs are ready to unveil the Fergie Jenkins statue, and the guys get so distracted by the fact the new "statue row" has two empty podiums that they spend the hour trying to figure out which players the Cubs are going to immortalize next. They're pretty sure the next one is guaranteed to be Ryne Sandberg, but then who gets the other spot? Many p…
 
The baseball podcast with David Brown is back and this week the guys discuss important baseball topics like why does Rick Sutcliffe think the Cubs are good enough to add players? Should the Cubs trade Willson Contreras? Why is it so much better when the Cubs bring up guys like Brandon Hughes and Christopher Morel instead of 30 year old non-prospect…
 
Some platforms had technical difficulties with the original post of this podcast. So here it is again. Not everyone had problems with the original, so that one also remains posted. The Cubs went back to the playoffs for a second straight year, and won just as many postseason games as they did the year before. But this was a 97 win team with a Japan…
 
The Cubs went back to the playoffs for a second straight year, and won just as many postseason games as they did the year before. But this was a 97 win team with a Japanese star in right field, a Cardinals retread in center, and a rookie of the year catcher. It was the 2008 Cubs and until their Canadian prop comic game one playoff starter walked se…
 
The red-hot Cubs won their second series of the season and fifth game in 20 attempts (yikes). Andy and Dave talk about Ildemaro Vargas' wild day in the field, Frank Schwindel's fortuitous flat tire, and some unfortunate (and a few convenient) injuries. They also talk about the crazy Angels-Rays game that featured lots of trophies, an outfielder pit…
 
The Bears drafted some players and so it's time for a spring edition of the Bears Podcast with Mike Pusateri. The guys take a look at the Bears picks, their strategy of not doing much to fix the offense, but how they did draft Velvet Jones. They also talk about the free agents the team has signed and discussed if the Bears really seem invested in J…
 
The season is nearing the tenth pole (that's not a thing) and so it's a good time to check in on the Cubs insistence on hitting everything on the ground, what's going on with the ball, what's the sticky stuff in the rosin bags these days, why are people still freaking out about Joe Maddon like he hasn't been doing this stuff forever, Javy's giant t…
 
The 1981 Cubs season was so bad that fans were relieved when baseball took two months off right in the middle of the season. The Cubs record was so lousy that they ended up with the first pick in the 1982 draft, but they didn't have the worst record in the league and they only finished in last place in one of the two halves! They somehow had an int…
 
The 1984 Cubs were mostly still around in 1986 only they were older and mostly injured and pretty bad. The Cubs got off to a hot start, if 2-8 is hot, Lee Smith pitched a lot, like a lot a lot, nobody won 10 games, Jim Frey got fired. The Cubs fielded a dream twosome of Shawon Dunston and Brian Dayett. A dream I guess if you were Andy and you were …
 
Baseball games have been played, the Cubs are the greatest team in the land, Seiya Suzuki can't be stopped and MLB is putting games on at weird times on weird channels, and blackouts are dumb. Andy and David take a look at the first week of games. They hand out the Jitterbug Call of the Week (and a Cubs' announcer gets nominated twice), they figure…
 
The Cubs were "Building A New Tradition" in 1982 with a new general manager in Dallas Green and a new manager in Lee Elia (no, it's not THAT Lee Elia season). If there were Prospect Perverts forty years ago they were excited about a trade that brought some kid named Ryne Sandberg over from the Phillies. Fergie Jenkins was back, the draft would yiel…
 
It's time for the 2022 Baseball Preview Podcast and Andy finally gets his co-host's name right. David Brown, National Baseball Writer for Bally Sports is back and after they get done making fun of the Marquee Sports Network Cubs Season Preview, they break down every division and all of the major awards. David makes a couple of very disturbing predi…
 
It was the dawn of a new era for the Cubs with Andy MacPhail, Ed Lynch and Jim Riggleman wandering into town. They traded for Brian McRae, grabbed Howard Johnson off the scrapheap, and once they found out what a juggernaut they had they traded in-season for Todd Zeile, Luis Gonzalez and Scott Servais. Frank Castillo almost threw a no hitter, Randy …
 
Against his better judgement Bally Sports National MLB writer Dave Brown returns for another week and the guys discuss the Cubs signing Seiya Suzuki, great commercials in Mariners history (it's a thing), the new DH rule and what Joe and Shohei can do with it, will pitchers ever learn to hit ever again, why the Cubs are still wasting time with Jason…
 
The wheel of crap lands on the earliest possible season and we break down the 1980 Cubs. Preston Gomez. Tim Blackwell. Lenny Randle. Dave Kingman. Dennis Lamp. Two Hall of Fame closers, two Cy Young Award winners in the bullpen, Bill Buckner won the batting title and the Cubs won 64 games. Ouch. You want stories about Steve Howe, Jay Johnstone pran…
 
The lockout's over, and not only is baseball back, but the award-winning* baseball podcast is back with special guest Dave Brown, National MLB Writer for Bally Sports. The guys discuss where the promised flurry of signings and trades went, how Jed's dinner with Japanese star Seiya Suzuki was going, probably, what's the deal with Carlos Correa and J…
 
It's time to spin the wheel of Cubs crap again, but this time the pod starts with the guys talking about the end to the MLB lockout. Then the wheel lands on one of the most inauspicious years in Cubs' history the Mike Quade-led disaster that was the 2011 Cubs. The Cubs traded for Matt Garza, brought in Carlos Pena and brought back Kerry Wood and su…
 
Not one but two interviews in this podcast, starting with Kevin Kaduk the head of content for the brand new CHGO Sports. Kevin talks about the new venture, how it came about, where it's going, how there's going to be a bar and he pretends to not be bothered by the fact I keep referring to it as Chuggo. Then Jon Greenberg of The Athletic comes by an…
 
The Bears have had quite a few job searches since George Halas hired Mike Ditka over pudding and a wet nap in 1982, and the guys look at every candidate from all of them. Some of them you won't believe they bothered to talk to, others you'll be mad that they didn't offer the job and there are stories for all of them. From Ditka to Wanny to McGin--o…
 
The guys break down the first Ryan Poles-Matt Eberflus press conference by playing it back and making fun of it. They find the whys, they try to follow Matt's weird, overly complicated acronyms for everything, they relive the emotional moment when Ryan first laid eyes on Matt and fell in coaching love, and mostly they make fun of the media for thei…
 
The Second Arrangement's Kelly Dwyer returns to the podcast to talk about pertinent, timely things like how the Bulls can fill their power forward void, why it's weird that George McCaskey wears a Bears' letterman jacket, Easy Ed Macauley, Larry Bowa, Bill Russell trades, Fred Hoiberg's neckwear, Paul Mokeski, how many times Grayson Allen has been …
 
George McCaskey drops by to join the guys on the podcast as they discuss the firings of Bears' GM Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy. George explains why hiring an 80 year old consultant who seems to be just trying to sell a book is the key to finally finding a good coach and GM. We learn that Ted Phillips isn't going to oversee football anymore be…
 
Something funky's been happening to the Apple version of this Remember This Crap podcast on the Jim McMahon Game in the Metrodome in 1985. So here's the most stripped down version we can upload. Hope it works for everyone. It's a good one. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/desipio/message…
 
With the Bears and Vikings playing another meaningless season finale on Sunday, we look back to a more important game, one of the coolest in Bears' history. It's Monday Night Football on Thursday early in the 1985 season and the illustrious crew of Frank Gifford, Joe Namath and Orenthal James Simpson are in the Metrodome for a game that Jim McMahon…
 
The Bears dominated a really terrible Giants team and the guys discuss whether or not the McCaskeys learned any of the right lessons from it. They also wonder if the inept play of an opposing QB has ever gotten a general manager fired. (Fingers crossed.) They bask in the glow of Robert Quinn breaking a prestigious record that we only learned even e…
 
If you didn't hear it last year, or you have a less than great memory all of this stuff is new to you. There's a lot of crap to remember about two of the oldest and most similar franchises in NFL history, the New York Giants and our beloved Bears. From Tom Coughlin's beet red face to Bill Parcells pulling his pants up to his breasts and everything …
 
It was a Christmas (day after) miracle! Nick Foles led the Bears to a win in snowy Seattke and the guys are here to bask in the glow of a hard fought victory and wonder why the Bears haven't fired head coach Matt Nagy yet. They discuss what the delay might mean, why it's the right thing to do, who they should hire and what a new front office struct…
 
The Bears and Seahawks have played more times than you think in the relatively short (compared to the Bears) history of football in Seattke, but there have been some really memorable games. Hey, if it wasn't for them Lovie might not have ever won a playoff game! The guys look back at some of those matchups, paying particular attention to the 2006 a…
 
The Bears played a spirited but incompetent game at home against the Vikings and lost. Matt Nagy kept losing his mind--or what's left of it--on the sidelines. Teven Jenkins decided somebody had to finally stand up for their quarterback. A sixth round draft pick looks like their second best cornerback and he didn't play for FOURTEEN weeks for no app…
 
With the Bears and Vikings ready to see if anybody's healthy enough to play on Monday, the guys look back at a classic matchup of the two teams from 1979. Seriously. It's a CBS production with a young Bob Costas teaming with current Bears' all-time leading receiver Johnny Morris. (Man, this franchise...) You'll hear the call of the game and then ou…
 
The Bears went up to Lambeau Field to humiliate themselves and us and they managed to not do it for an entire half! Heady times. Andy and Mike P. break down the fluky first half and the predictable fiasco that was the second half. They try to figure out what kind of idiot would want to take the Bears job if Ryan Pace stays, they complain about Cris…
 
You might not be old enough to remember that it used to be the Bears who handed out the repeated thumpings in Packers games, but Mike D. and Andy do, and they are taking a look back at one of the most humiliating nights in Packers' history. It was a Monday night clash in 1985 with the Bears and a dainty little 300 pound defensive tackle named after…
 
The Bears and Cardinals played what technically met the minimum qualifications for an NFL football game on Sunday and Andy and Mike P. are ready to break it all down, tell you what they saw on the all-22 footage and..., well, mostly they're just going to make fun of just how unwatchable that crap was. The Bears gave the game away before the first q…
 
The Bears and the Cardinals go back to even before they both played in Chicago, and yet, there aren't that many memorable games in the 121 year history of the "rivalry." The guys take a look back at how the rivalry got started, the many moves of the Cardinals, and yes, it turns out there were more important games between the two other than the time…
 
The Bears and Lions put America through an unwatchable slog in the early game on Thanksgiving and Mike P. and Andy are here to talk about it, about the weird week that preceded it (even by Bears' standards), and about where the Bears go from here. They have theories on whether the McCaskeys were really going to fire Nagy, about who leaked the news …
 
Few teams have ruined more Thanksgivings for their fans than our Bears, and Mike D. and I felt it necessary to Remember This Crap about the many times the Bears have caused us indigestion on Turkey Day. They've been better on that day than you might think, then again, the fact that the Lions have been terrible so long has helped. We unearthed some …
 
The Bears played a wet turd of a game on Sunday against the Ravens, the only reason to watch them got hurt, Matt Nagy blew all three second half timeouts in spectacular fashion, and on Tuesday morning we thought it all finally got him fired. Until he wasn't. Yet. Maybe. Andy and Mike P. discuss all of that, plus a look ahead to a completely perfunc…
 
The Bears and Ravens don't have a long, illustrious history but the Bears have gotten the better of Baltimore in the series, even if the Ravens have been a more consistently good team than the Bears during the last quarter century. Andy and Mike D. recall Ravens who have gone to prison and those who should have, too many Michigan quarterbacks, Dave…
 
It's the one you've been waiting for. Mike D. and Andy Remember This Crap about the Bears and Packers. From the glory days when the Bears never lost to the Packers to whatever things are now, the guys remember Packers cheap shots, Chester Marcol's mad dash and the Bears revenge later that season, Bryan Robinson's jump, Devin Hester's debut, Lovie's…
 
Matt Nagy was back on the sidelines and so was all of the dumb stuff that makes his coaching so special in the Bears 29-27 loss to the Steelers. The good news was that Justin Fields looked great, the bad news was that the Bears and the officials combined for so much dumb that even that wasn't enough for a win. The Bears head into the bye on a four …
 
The Bears and Steelers square off on Monday Night and since there's no Manning Brothers Jamboree on ESPN2, you might as well just play this podcast while you watch the game with the sound down. Andy and Mike D. look back at the long history of the Steelers (a lot of it is surprisingly bad) and some key matchups between the two teams. They look back…
 
The Bears played without Matt Nagy on Sunday, something we'd all like to get used to. Justin Fields looked really good, something we'd also like to get used to. And yet, the Bears suffered a pretty dispiriting loss with a terrible defensive effort, and even progress for their offense leaves them at the bottom of the NFL. Andy and Mike P. ponder the…
 
The biggest stars of Substack join forces as internationally renowned NBA scribe Kelly Dwyer joins Andy to talk about all of the really important stuff you want to hear them discuss. They talk 80s baseball, Andy's trip to St. Louis as a small boy, Premier League Darts, the Mandrell sisters, the most egregious snubs from the NBA's top 76* list, Cont…
 
It's time for some fresh crap so Andy and Mike D. take a tour through the surprisingly long history of Bears-49ers matchups. They spend most of their time in the Super Bowl era and look at three pretty awful playoff games, the demise of "Bear Weather", the birth of The Refrigerator, Mike Ditka driving while gloating, Mike Brown's walk-off, great QB…
 
Just when you thought things couldn't get any more surreal for the Bears, the head visor, Matt Nagy has tested positive for COVID-19. Will he miss Sunday's game against the Niners? Would anybody notice if he did? Andy and Mike P. hold their noses and look back at the demolition the Bears endured at the hands of Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. They po…
 
We harken back to one of the best Bears editions of Remember this Crap with clips from last year's Tampa Bay Buccaneers podcast. If this episode were just us reading old John McKay quotes it would be worth your time, but wait, there's more, including Vinny Testaverde's color blindness, great matchups in the (mostly lopsided) history of this rivalry…
 
Andy and Mike P. look back at a perfunctory Packers win over the Bears and they ponder the horrifying idea that maybe it's not just Aaron Rodgers that makes them better than the Bears. They appreciate that Matt Nagy is still finding new ways to waste timeouts. They wonder if Allen Robinson is really that good, if Eddie Jackson has any understanding…
 
It's time to remember Remember This Crap, Bears-Packers. We remind everyone that the Bears used to beat the Packers repeatedly, compare the Packers rivalry to the Cubs and Cardinals, explain Jay Cutler's biggest mistake in the NFC Championship game, we come up with the incredible observations about how few times the Bears and Packers have made the …
 
The Bears went to Las Vegas and came back with a hangover, a lighter wallet, some sort of social disease and a win over the Raiders. The guys break down the Bears continued commitment to the run, Andy Dalton only wearing half his uniform on the bench, the NFL's decommitment to concussion protocols, whether or not the Bears are building a foundation…
 
The 16th meeting of the Bears and Raiders is coming up Sunday so it's time to Remember This Crap about the history between the teams. From the early days of Bob Thomas missing important extra points, to a big game from Vince Evans, to Jim McMahon's lacerated kidney and Marc Wilson's broken thumb to lots of Richard Dent sacks, to the Jeff Jaeger rev…
