What would you do if John Fox and the Bears made the playoffs with Jimmy Clausen as QB?

27 March 2015 - 12:52 AM




Although Cutler will top the offseason depth chart by dint of his experience edge, Fox made it clear Wednesday that the Bears will have an "open competition" at quarterback.


"Obviously you've got to start somewhere," Fox said, via CSN Chicago, "and my experience in football, really in anything, it's not where you start a competition; it's where you finish it."

If Fox is to be taken at his word, Cutler won't be under center in Week 1 if he's outplayed by Clausen and/or a rookie quarterback in August.


Imagine the story line if Clausen wins the starting job in Chicago, Fox turns the defense around and they sneak into the playoffs.  Obviously this isn't going to happen but I thought it was funny that Clausen is seriously up for consideration as Bears starting QB, under John Fox no less.

Getting ready to move...(warning, long rant)

25 March 2015 - 01:17 PM

Sorry in advance for the long post but I need a good rant.  So the house I've rented with my roommate for three years that was for sale since October finally sold to an investment realty company.  They gave us notice on Feb 27 to move out by March 31.  No big deal, we knew it was coming.  When the house was for sale my roommate and I talked about living together again and he said yes, no problem.  


We have lived together for 4 years.  When I first moved down to Austin we lived in a house that had been passed down by a long chain of people who moved to Austin from NC.  But the house was dilapidated so we moved out after a year.  So we moved into the house we're in now.  He had the master bedroom in the last house, I had the master in our current house we're about to move out of.  He assumes he's getting the master at the next place.  And normally I'd be a high character guy and say yea, no problem, you get the master in the next house.  But...here's the situation.


When we got notice at our current house, he posted a facebook status about how our house sold and we got notice and how he's looking for a new place to live.  The post was pretty innocuous so no big deal right?  Well, he hid the facebook post from me.  You have to intentionally do that poo, so it was personal.  That same day he made the facebook post I had people messaging me about having to move out.  And I was like, what?  I haven't told anyone yet?  So I ask how they found out and turns out he made this hidden facebook post.  Also learned that he'd gone around telling people he didn't want to live with me anymore and he's looking for another place.  But to my face he said he wanted to live with me again.  So I confront him, "Hey man, what's up with the hidden facebook post?  I hear you went around telling people you don't want to live with me again?"  He denies everything, says it's a glitch with facebook, denies telling anyone he doesn't want to live with me anymore.  Well after that confrontation he backtracks and we end up finding a new place.  Just signed the lease yesterday.


I've done a lot for this guy - I got him his job he has now.  Straight up I got him a job at the company I work for.  I covered him at work for a month when his band went on tour last year.  I was there for him when his girlfriend cheated on him and he woke me up at 4 am to talk him down off the ledge.  And he doesn't have enough respect for me to tell me he doesn't want to live with me again to my face? 


So I'm going to tell him I'm taking the master bedroom in the new house.  I did all the searching for the place, all the interfacing with the new landlords and realtors, already paid the deposit out of my own money, etc.  Besides the countless other poo I've done for him.  I just don't think after everything he did and what I've done for him he deserves it.  


tl;dr - taking the master bedroom at the new house from my ungrateful chicken poo roommate
