    1) Posts are started about the draft and the season isn't even over yet.

    2) Yet another "MM/TT are getting it all wrong and I hate those guys" post is started.

    3) A "Fire Capers!!" thread that was dormant for months is brought back up again.

    4) You are not so confident in your team anymore and now just want to take it one game at a time.

    5) Claims of: "We have an easy schedule" are silenced.

    6) Trolls from other teams that are better that we play are no longer coming here to taunt us. Instead we get pity or understanding from them.

    Anyone want to add anything else?

    7) People with 20 posts in 4 years begin posting (been a while since they had the opportunity to complain)

    8) A rash of new members complaining (prolly the anti-TT crowd that left after the Packers won the SB - coming back because now their hatred of the man is proven correct in their minds)

    9) You hear zero references to Aaron Rodgers being a "system quarterback".

    10) You have faith in your 3rd string QB because you never had a need for a 3rd string QB until now.

    11) Playoffs were looking likely. Now, forget about them.

    There is something creepy about a team that has a QB named Manning.

    12) A losing streak - and not logic - is the only evidence needed for the complainants.

    You know your GM and the organization are very good when:

    1. You are 10 games into the season; your team is average; and a portion of the fan base is shocked and erupts with displeasure.

    14.) You find yourself making "hubba hubba" comments for the Chargers (backup?) QB Charlie Whitehurst..:whistling:

    15) You are looking forward to watching any other games while dreading the one your team is playing in.

    16) You recall those fond times when Lambeau used to mean wins.

    17) Even though your team has a better record than a team they are going up against, you are still not so sure if they can pull it off and win.

    18) Your team is starting it's 3rd string QB within days when #1 went down.

    19) You start and add to lists like this on your team's forum.

    20) Discussions of trolls and banned members come up because there is nothing positive to report on your team.

    21) You are actually looking forward to hearing about dear old Aunt Martha's latest surgery on Thanksgiving instead of watching your team play.

    22) you find yourself avoiding your team's forums and the comment section of JSonline because what was once a promising season is a c-hair away from utter disappointment.

    23) When, for the first time since the Chicago Bear's SB season in '06, Bear fans have come out of hiberation and are beginning to surface proudly wearing their "mothball" scented gear (for no reason other than the obvious > Packer injuries). The idiots are standing out like lost T :poop:d's amidst huge massive throngs of blue-clad die-hard Colts fan in our area sports bars, shopping centers, malls, etc. Any day now, I expect to see Bear fan equipped with a life-size "toy" doll head of Aaron Rodgers to carry around with them to celebrate and claim responsibilty for "taking him out."

    24) When you find yourself constantly saying the line.... "These are the bad times"......from the mouth of "Henry Hill," (good ol' Ray Liotta) in "Goodfellas".....when he had to borrow money from "Paulie" and worry about getting "whacked" after getting busted for powder.

    25) You actually turned off the Packer game -live- and missed a touchdown run by Eddie Lacy, and then apparently a stop by the D, (to watch the Saints-49ers) and turned it back just in time to see Tolzien find Jason Pierre-Paul for 7 and make it a 14-point game.

    26) Then turned the Saints game back on.

    Oh it's a "lightening rod" for fan perspective, luv :tdown: And a little levity (in addition to prayer) during our darkest hours of AR's absence doesn't hurt :)

    27) When you find yourself consistently thinking about the Fail Mary because in comparison, it makes these recent losses easier to handle.

    28) You find yourself perusing other teams forums of winning teams because you miss that kind of chatter on your own team's forum. Even the Bears forum. (How low can you go?)

    29) You watch the Packers vs Stealers SB over and over and over again after not watching it for years.

    30) With a Ouija board you invite a few friends over for a seance hoping to get in contact with Vince Lombardi to get him to give advice to Mike McCarthy.

    31) You find yourself agreeing with Spanish Rose that he really could be a Packers coach and could turn the team around. (How low can you go?)

    32) If your male, you accept your female companions idea to go out and see a chick flick during the game.
    If your female, you accept your male companions idea to go out and see a guy action movie during the game.

    33) You find yourself doing all sorts of Sunday home projects that the wife has been bugging you for years to get done.

    Aaron Rodgers is just a system quarterback. A good example of a product of the system. Tolzien is already on pace to break all of Favre's records, including interceptions, especially if he plays for the 30 years that analysts are speculating.

    36. You run out of pins for your TT doll (ok that one came by way of Bus).

    37. You wish we had T J Rubley as our backup QB.

    btw, I thought 21 by Forget Favre was funny as hell! :roflmao:

    37. You see your name move up 2 spots on the Season Ticket waiting list. Not knowing if someone had a heart attack
    during the last 3 games or became a Bears fan, but knowing that it will be your Great Great Grand children's
    opportunity to get in the stands.

    38. You check Brett Favre's website to see if he is still staying in shape.

    39. You start calculating the losses needed to improve our draft position.

    40. You take down your picture of Spanish Rose and Vince Lombardi having a secret meal
    together before SuperBowl I to discuss strategy.
