S3Ep31: Ryan Pace Fired. Matt Nagy Gone. Ted Phillips ... Has Nudes?
Black Monday struck hard at Halas Hall as not only was Chicago HC Matt Nagy canned, the seven-year reign of GM Ryan Pace was also deleted like a rack of Hamm's. Yet, somehow, Ted Phillips remains a trusted soldier of the McCaskey family despite years of uselessness. The boys of Zero Doinks talk all about their Bears feelings and discuss possible targets for both GM and head coach. This was a good day, Bears fans. Imperfect, but good. Also, Ryan Pace probably traded five more draft picks on his way out the door. 0:00 - 04:03 - a symphony of sound + what's on tap tonight 04:03 - 59:36 - The boys talk about their experiences of Black Monday. How surprised were they with Ryan Pace getting fired on top of Matt Nagy's corpse? What are their immediate reactions to the George McCaskey press conference and the Chicago media's hard-slapping questions? Do the boys have any favorites for GM or coach? 59:36 - END - lots of sound for your ears to (hopefully) enjoy --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/zerodoinks/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/zerodoinks/support

S3Ep30: LOL Mike Glennon. Season Is Almost Over. Monk Season Finale(s) Review.
The season is, mercifully, nearly over, and the Bears have put themselves in position to tie for second in the NFC North with a Week 18 win at Minnesota. But who cares, they're 6-10, and the only good news is there are a few teams more dreadful than them, including the New York Giants. Wow, they are terrible. Reports of Matt Nagy's imminent demise are now out there from reputable humans. But how dark and deep will Black Monday be next week? That's for next week's episode to hammer out. This week? We review the two part season finale of Monk, among other items of extreme interest to our listeners. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/zerodoinks/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/zerodoinks/support

S3Ep29: BDN Beats Seattle. Giants Coming to Town, Who Cares. Covid is Everywhere.
Who thought they'd have the opportunity to see BDN lead the Bears to a victory in 2021? Not Dan and Bill Doinks, that's for sure. Not sure what that says about the Seahawks to be honest but hey, who cares. Nothing changes about the future of this squad, though, as we are two weeks from (hopefully) major changes. 0:00 - 01:23 - Intro 01:23 - 02:17 - What's on tap tonight? 02:17 - 28:37 - Seahawks Review, Giants Preview.

S3Ep28: Loss To Kirk on MNF. Brad Swiggs Visits. Merry Christmas Tunes.
What a shocker, Matt Nagy was fully in charge and the Bears lost. Somehow Chicago manages to lose despite giving up less than 100 yards passing to Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings.

S3Ep27: Wow, Packers Beat The Bears Again, What A Surprise. Happy Holidays.
The Packers beat the Bears for like the 900th time out of the last 969 games. Who cares, why is Matt Nagy still the coach. Can we just fast forward to 2022. JF1 was back so that was fun at times. Still too many rookie mistakes but hey, he gives Chicago reason for hope. We go off the rails a few times this episode so if you're looking for hard-hitting analysis, probably not going to find it here. But that's pretty much how we roll. 0:00 - 03:37 - Intro. Bringing back Oh Sweaty Ted this holiday season. 03:37 - 05:06 - What's on tap tonight? 05:06 - 10:51 - Justin Fields is Gold.

S3Ep26: What A Waste Of Time. Nice Ints, Andy. Packers Up Next. First Gray Balls Loss.
We'll be honest, we don't spend much of this episode talking about the Cardinals-Bears game. Nor do we do a deep dive into Bears-Packers. So what do we spend over two hours talking about? Welp, I hope your name isn't Brad Biggs because you might be in the crosshairs juuuuust a bit.

How are the Illini and Gophers doing in B1G hoops thus far? 107:28 - 115:33 - Gray Balls. The now 2-1 Gray Balls 35+ intramural hoops squad tries to bounce back after a tough loss. 115:23 - 132:39 - Let's wrap this m'fer up. Bulls talk.

For all of you, like us, who sat through that wretched Thanksgiving Bears-Lions game, may we be rewarded in the afterlife. Cairo Santos kicks a game-winner, Andy Dalton was given a silver football (and seemed way too excited about it) and rumors continue to swirl around Matt Nagy's job status. Just end it all, okay? The top NFC team cruises into Soldier Field this weekend as the very handsome Kliff Kingsbury tries to keep the good times rolling for his Arizona Cardinals.

After a tight Jimmy Graham/Jesper Horsted battle, who will the boys pick this week? 46:35 - 67:42 - Hamm's N Bread. Resident sharp, shark and whale Rick Feelsmen pops in for his three hot hot picks and the boys tell you which way they are leaning on a few NFL games of note, including Bears-Cards.

S3Ep24: Burn It All To The Ground. Gray Balls Cannot Lose. Hope Everyone Is Fired By The Time You Listen To This.
One can only hope by the time you are listening to this episode that Ted Phillips, Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy have all resigned out of shame. Or someone found incriminating photos of all three of them at a local farm. It's long past time to burn it all down. Dan Doinks was on the scene as the Bears lose to a Lamar Jackson-less Baltimore Ravens squad. How did it feel to hear "Fire Matt Nagy" chants with your own ears at Soldier Field, Dan? The only thing that could have made that loss worse was a JF1 injury, so of course he did, why not, what is the point of being a Bears fan anymore. Anywho, we'll make it weird as always. Hey, at least the Bulls are amazing ... as are the Gray Balls. 0:00 - 03:30 - Our first Christmas-y song of the season as Daughter of Bill Doinks and Bill Doinks present to you a custom-build version of Joni Mitchell's "River," with the editing stylings of Coach Cuse putting the finishing touches on our latest tune. 03:30 - 05:02 - What's on tap tonight? 05:02 - 13:17 - Justin Fields is Gold. Our guy suffered some bruised ribs after a tough first half. We blame Matt Nagy because why not, though this wasn't JF1's best appearance. 13:17 - 56:47 - Bears-Ravens review, Bears-Lions preview, NFL nuggets. Just a lot to cover here but it goes off the rails. Do not let Ryan Pace hire his third coach, bottom line. 56:47 - 68:59 - Bears Fantasy Corner. Just super weird. 68:59 - 69:46 - Where you can find us on the interwebs. 69:46 - 111:01 - Hamms N Spreads. The weirdest yet, we dive deep into a special suburban appearance by Cairo Santos as well as expert Everton nuggets during Toffees Corner. 111:01 - 119:06 - B1G Minute. The Gophers can play spoiler. The Illini need a win against Pat Fitzgerald and the Wildcats. 119:06 - 135:14 - Gray Balls. Will this 35+ intramural squad ever lose again? I doubt it. How did Rick Feelsmen do? 135:14 - END - Let's Wrap this M'Fer Up + Outro. An update on our coaching prowess(es) with our kindergarten and second grade hoops teams.

The boys will give you their hot hot fantasy and gambling picks (as will resident sharp and shark, Rick Feelsmen). Plus the long-awaited return of Gray Balls as Coach Cuse has put together quite the squad to try and defend the crown for the 35+ intramural champions (consolation bracket) of the world. Plus tons more, including both Bill and Dan venting about coaching their children in their local park district basketball leagues. 00:00 - 02:26 - Intro song(s) courtesy of some weird karaoke site as well as Pennywise (not the clown) and Coach Cuse + Rick Feelsmen 02:26 - 03:56 - What's on tap tonight? 03:56 - 29:25 - Bears-Ravens preview. A little more about the refs in Bears-Steelers. Big week for the NFC North, besides the Lions. 29:25 - 30:12 - Where can you find Zero Doinks on the interwebs? 30:12 - 35:54 - Bears Fantasy Corner. Who should you pick up for your daily fantasy teams, same game parlay, et al. 35:54 - 55:40 - Hamm's N Bread. Resident and exclusive whale, shark and sharp @rickfeelsmen pops in with his three hottest picks of the week. Plus which way would the boys lean in Bears-Ravens and a few other recommended plays. As always, the segment ends with Toffees Corner, a review/preview of the boys's favorite soccer team, Everton. 55:40 - 67:43 - Big Ten Minute. The Gophers stink again, apparently. The Illini had the week off and travel to Iowa City. Will Dan's Gophers exceed seven wins, per his wallet? Hoops season is here, thank the sweet lord. 67:43 - 76:58 - Gray Balls. America's favorite 35+ intramural basketball team is back to defend their (consolation) championship in the western suburbs of Chicago. The 2021 - 2022 season kicked off on Wednesday and the boys will tell you all about what happened and what's coming up this week. Also, who won the Zero Doinks Cornish Hen Player of the Week Award? 76:58 - 95:39 - Let's Wrap This M'Fer Up. Dan has some Bulls thoughts and both Doinks need to let off some steam about the youth hoops teams they are coaching (to a combined 0-7 record, thus far). We might stink as leaders of young men/women. 95:39 - END - Lots of gifts to your ears from us. Hope you enjoy.

S3Ep22: Bears Fall Short in Pittsburgh. See Me After Class, Aaron Rodgers. Illini Clobber the Gophers.
Chicago's comeback attempt falls short on Monday Night Football as the Bears lose to Big Ben's grey penis in Pittsburgh. We'll talk all about JF1's continued ascension toward greatness, and Matt Nagy's latest example of why he should be facing an obvious firing, as the Bears head into their bye week. Plus of course we'll talk about Jordan Love's debut for Green Bay which should have offered Packers fans a glimpse into the abyss. We also invite Aaron Rodgers to 'see us after class' as well as discuss the Illini football squad's big win at #20 Minnesota, which I'm sure made Dan Doinks feel all sorts of things.

Plus we are pretty sure Jordan Love stinks. 50:47 - 58:34 - See Me After Class. Bill Doinks takes Aaron Rodgers to town. 58:34 - 59:21 - Where do you find Zero Doinks on the interwebs? 59:21 - 81:43 - B1G Minute.

Bulls talk and other oddities. 89:53 - END - Outro music.

S3Ep21: Jimmy G Rolls. Three Game Slump. JF1 Looks Golden.
Matt Nagy sits this one out but another loss hits the column nonetheless as Jimmy G and the 49ers roll all over Chicago's defense on Halloween afternoon. At least Justin Fields looked pretty sweet, right? That's really all this season is about, let's be honest, especially with the trade deadline looming and a GM and coach whose jobs should be just about over. We talk all about what stood out to us against San Francisco while looking ahead to this Monday night in Pittsburgh heading into a bye week. Plus tons more, including the smoking hot shark, sharp and whale Rick Feelsmen (version 2.0 is 8-7), musical diddies and a look ahead to the B1G football matchup of the year - Illini at Gophers.

Maybe the defense is bad now. Cool. Special teams were pretty useless though we have a new love. Who wins the Zero Doinks Cornish Hen Player of the Week?

The Bears fell to under .500 at the vengeful hands of Tom Brady and his 600+ career TDs. Under Matt Nagy, this Bears outfit had no chance to hang with the defending champs, which feels like a bit of a problem. What next for bewildered rookie QB Justin Fields and his teammates? San Fran stumbles into town this weekend for what feels like an absolute must win. Is Dan even bothering to show up? We'll talk about everything this week as we do every week.

But let's not bury the lead. The Packers are coming to town in Week 6 for what could very well be the last Soldier Field visit for Aaron Rodgers and his stupid hair.

S3Ep17: Bears > Lions. Tales from the ZD Tailgate. Don't Screw this up, Nagy.
Your favorite Zero Doinks contributors were on site during yesterday's Bears-Lions game and the boys will recap a long and boozy day at Soldier Field. With Justin Fields notching his first W as a starting NFL quarterback, head coach Matt Nagy had to allow his ego to enter the story after it was revealed that Bill Lazor was the brains behind the Bears offensive scheme. On Monday, Nagy reiterated that Andy Dalton will be the starter once again when healthy. The boys will talk about what is sure to be another unnecessarily-awkward week at Halas Hall leading into Chicago's first ever trip to Las Vegas against the Raiders. Plus tons more, including Zero Doinks's reaction about the next step toward the Bears leaving Soldier Field and shacking up in Arlington Heights.

Did Rick Feelsmen make it to the game in time? Did Coach Cuse write any more songs? 69:24 - 70:11 - Where can you find us on the interwebs? 70:11 - 88:42 - Hamm's N Bread. Resident sharp, shark and whale Rick Feelsmen 2.0 (2-1) pops in to give his three hot hot picks during Hamm's N Spreads. Which way are the boys leaning with the Bears-Raiders line and total?

Sunday night football on NBC exposed a few Bears issues to a national audience, wouldn't you say?
