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…
 
Justin Fields was impressive on Sunday against the Lions. So impressive that Matt Nagy can't wait to not play him anymore. Andy and Mike P. harken back to the Bears second win of the season, wonder why Nagy won't let anybody else take credit for what they clearly did, and they wonder how the Bears are supposed to beat anybody in the upcoming string…
 
It's the always exciting Bears-Lions matchup, and we look back at some of our favorite segments including, the time Andy asked for Walter Payton to be decorated onto his birthday cake, the first Bears QB the guys remember as kids, their first Bears jersey they ever owned (this one's a classic) and then we revisit one of the weird things the Bears a…
 
Bears fans have hardly ever been as excited as they were for a game as we were on Sunday and within minutes we knew it was going bad and that nobody had a clue what they were doing. Andy and Mike P.similarly don't waste any time trying to figure out how Matt Nagy still has a job, whether he sabotaged the game plan on purpose or if he's just that st…
 
The Bears head to the Factory of Sadness this week to continue their infrequent and somewhat memorable rivalry with an AFC team that they have waaaaaay too much in common with. We look back at the two greatest running backs in NFL history, an assortment of lousy quarterbacks, a few memorable games and again we are envious of a franchise that knows …
 
The Bears won and Justin Fields is taking over and everything's great! Well, many things are great. Some things are still being Nagyed and Paced. Mike P. and Andy break down the win over the Bengals, look ahead to the game with the Browns and especially the dawn of the Justin Fields era. Like most things with the Bears, there are concerns over how …
 
A fresh opponent for the Bears this week means a fresh crap! Andy and Mike D. harken back to classic Bears-Bengals games of yore, and what they find is a rivalry so tightly contested you can hardly believe it. The Bears on Sunday will be trying to set the longest winning streak in the history of this rivalry. So that's...something. They try to figu…
 
The Bears weren't good on Sunday, and it didn't just look that way on TV as Mike P. was there to see it live, in person, in the Rams' new $5 billion stadium. He joins Andy to talk about what the Bears offensive game plan could possibly have been, and what has happened to the defense. How did Eddie Jackson get this bad this fast? Does Matt Nagy have…
 
It's time to return to the Bears for Remember This Crap, but what to do when they open with a team we did last year? Let's revisit one of the finest Remember This Craps. A crummy re-run? No, there's nothing crummy about this one. This featured one of the greatest stories in 1985 Bears history (seriously) featuring Mike Singletary and Eric Dickerson…
 
A new season means another year of the award-winning Bears Podcast with Andy and Mike P. They look ahead to the Bears 2021 and try to figure out what Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace would have to do to get canned, why Andy Dalton is starting, when Justin Fields will start, and they go game by game through the season so you know exactly what's going to happ…
 
The wheel of crap finally landed on one of the most infamous seasons in Cubs history. It's time for Andy and Mike D. to remember the 2003 Cubs. It was a season that was incredible until it wasn't. Hindsight (and an actual World Series title) have made it easier to look back and enjoy the truly great parts of a season that crushed us all in the end.…
 
The Cubs unveiled a haphazard afterthought of a Hall of Fame, using mostly work done by other people that nobody even knew had been done, and that seemed right up our alley. So Andy and Mike D. decided to break down the 56 inductees, and surely we put more effort into this process than any of them did. From King Kelly to Lee Smith and everybody in …
 
He was the face of the Cubs during the most successful run in more than a century, and even if it makes some business sense to move on from him it doesn't make it any easier for the fans. Kyle and Andy discuss the Cubs trade of Anthony Rizzo to the Yankees, whether it's in effect a third of a season loan or if he's really gone, how bad it is that o…
 
How can you poke holes in one of the greatest movies ever made? Well, you don't, mostly. Andy and Mike P. revisit the 1990 Martin Scorcese classic, "GoodFellas" and marvel at what a great, well made, incredibly paced movie it is, while taking issue with just a couple of the plot points. They draw Sopranos parallels, play your favorite clips, give s…
 
The Olympics are here whether anybody's ready or not and Drew Lawrence of The Guardian (and several other publications) stops by to talk about them. Why are they happening? Why are they playing softball on a toxic waste site? The guys try to come up with a better way to pick the men's basketball team, wonder what Mary Carrillo is going to get to ma…
 
A year after the Cubs' inexplicable playoff run and Sammy Sosa 66 homer season, the Cubs were without Kerry Wood (because of Tommy John Disease), but decided the keys to returning to the playoffs were bringing back 40-year old Gary Gaetti and signing Benito Santiago and Scott Sanders. Fool proof. Just one game out of first in June the Cubs plummete…
 
It's time for a Cubs podcast and Kyle joins Andy with Sam out on assignment, and the guys have breaking news to discuss with Joc Pederson traded to the Barves for an enormous prospect (literally.) They play a fun game of "Is he gonna be traded," they try to figure out who to assign blame to for the demise of the Cubs the last few years, and they pi…
 
The Dusty era had ended, Sam Zell was in town screwing up the Tribune and trying to pump up the value of the Cubs so he could sell them to some unsuspecting dopes in Omaha, Alfonso Soriano, Theodore Roosevelt Lilly, Jason Marquis, Mark DeRosa and Cliff Lee were new to town and the Cubs struggled to start the season. Then Carlos Zambrano punched Mic…
 
Former Daily Herald Cubs' reporter Bruce Miles is back to discuss his new blog at brucemiles.net, his new book, "The Phenom" and to talk a lot about the Cubs current and past. Has the Cubs' six-game losing streak given the team permission to sell, and do they have anybody to sell if it did? The Cubs' schedule gets easier and the Brewers' gets harde…
 
All Cubs seasons are fun to re-live (well, most of them) but some are more fun than others and this time the wheel of crap has gifted us the incredible, ridiculous, insane 1998 Cubs. Sammy Sosa homered every day, Kerry Wood struck out everybody, Terry Mulholland and/or Rod Beck were always pitching and Chip Caray was there to narrate most of it--we…
 
The season opened in the land of the rising sun and sunk pretty quickly afterwards. Don Baylor was the new Groove in town and he brought back a mediocre former Cubs catcher and an actual lead off man. Kerry Wood didn't debut until May after surviving his bout with Tommy John Disease but he did it in memorable fashion. The Cubs kept trading for Barv…
 
Chevy Chase says it's his best movie and who are we to argue? We give Fletch the Movie Deep Dive treatment. We discuss the long tortured road it took to the screen in the first place, the differences between the book the movie, the stuff Chevy just made up, and we even mention the godforsaken sequel. We also look at why it's been so hard for Hollyw…
 
It's time once again to spin the wheel of crap and this time it lands on 1996. Jim Riggleman's fighting Cubs tanked down the stretch (surprise), Sammy was bad at the start then great and then got hurt, Ryne Sandberg came back, Doug Jones hit the road, Steve Trachsel was an All-Star. Jim Hendry arrived to start stocking the system with his guys and …
 
When the 2021 Cubs tied the 1977 team for best record in May, it made us wonder what the hell happened to those 1977 Cubs. They had an 8.5 game lead and finished 20 games out of first, somehow. So, Mike D. and I brought in old friend Frank Nova (we needed somebody old enough to remember), and here's your chance to learn more than you ever wanted to…
 
A Cubs season so bad that all of baseball decided to just end the season in August...it's 1994 and that's this week's season to savor on Remember This Crap? Andy and Mike D. look back at Tuffy Rhodes' three homers on opening day, the Cubs not winning a home game until after tax day, Harry Caray falling down in Miami, Ryne Sandberg's first wife's pr…
 
Sam joins Andy for the Cubs podcast and they discuss the strange sensation of seeing a team totally turn things around right before your eyes. The Cubs smacked the Padres around pretty good and started what's supposed to be a make or break June schedule gauntlet with three convincing wins. The guys discuss how much of the preseason "sell off the fr…
 
After some fond remembrances of Andy's time as an official scorer in the Midwest League, he and Mike D. spin the wheel of crap and it lands on...well, a year they can't do because of their only rule, so they spin again and get the Don Zimmer/Jim Essian juggernaut 1991 Cubs. Re-live Dave Smith's season crippling early blowouts, a wild game against t…
 
Neifi saved the season! At least that's what Dusty Baker insisted. We spin the wheel of crap and it lands on 2005 so we re-live Nomar's groin injury, Kerry Wood disappearing early and often between innings of starts, Derrek Lee's should have been MVP season, and a glorious assortment of Cubs bums. It's a very fun look at a team that was only occasi…
 
It's time for a deep dive into the 1998 Coen Brothers' classic, "The Big Lebowski", and at over two hours it's perfect if you're not into that whole brevity thing. Andy and Mike P. discuss the seemingly disjointed plot that all comes together, the perfect performances, iconic lines, casting decisions, how many times The Dude says "man", how many Wh…
 
Andy, Sam and Kyle have reassembled to discuss the Cubs season to date. Everybody's hurt, but it's not serious, you know the same thing that the Cubs training staff has said every time anybody has gotten hurt, ever. They play a fun game of "whose fault is it?" They make fun of Jesse Rogers' math. But they also wonder if the Cubs have actually accid…
 
Andy and Mike D. spin the wheel of the crap and land on one of the most fun seasons in our lifetimes, the Boys of Zimmer, the 1989 Cubs. They dispel some myths about Mitch Williams' opening day tightrope walk, revel in a big moment from a backup catcher, the greatest double play Andy's ever seen and the Luis Salazar Game. They also break down the M…
 
It's a special edition of the Movie Deep Dive Podcast and Andy and Mike Pusateri are joined by a man with an inexplicable love of the 2014 Kevin Costner-Jennifer Garner classic "Draft Day." It's ESPN 1000 Chicago and NBC Sports Net Chicago's David Kaplan. The guys break down the movie, try to figure out why everyone in the movie seems to have been …
 
Andy and Kyle are on hand to do the first in-season edition of this year's Cubs podcast. They take a tour around the roster wondering if Javy is ever going to shorten his swing (he's not), feigning shock at Joc Pederson's early season struggles, enjoying the renaissance of Kris Bryant and (for now, at least) Jake Arrieta. They try to make a fireabl…
 
Andy and Mike D. spin the big wheel of crap and it lands on the Lou Piniella's final full season with the Cubs, 2009. You probably remember it best for Milton Bradley just being a complete psychopath, or for Kevin Gregg kicking his own team in the balls in a must-win game in Miami. It was the year we saw breakout stars like Jake Fox, Micah Hoffpaui…
 
It's time for another Movie Deep Dive Podcast and this time Andy and Mike P. are breaking down the Matt Damon/Ed Norton/John Malkovich/Gretchen Mol/John Turturro classic Rounders. What's with everybody's hair? Does the math in the movie make any sense? Why is that casino such a dump--oh, that's why. We talk about the cast, the backstories, our favo…
