Sunday Could Help Decide the Divison

For both the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers, Sunday could be anything but an off day in the NFC North.  While the most storied rivals in league history prepare for Monday night's battle for division supremacy, the reigning division champions will be fighting for their 2010 lives.

That's right, kids.  The Detroit Lions have an opportunity to hand the Minnesota Vikings their playoff walking papers before the end of September.  Sure 0-3 can be overcome but not if one of those 3 is a home loss to Detroit.  Not if you're a club already rife with injuries at key positions.  Not if internal turmoil has led to leaked information about the quarterback's lack of desire.  How long after a loss like that would it take for Brett Favre to start blaming his bum ankle and look for the first flight back to wherever he's from in Mississippi?  How long after a loss like that would the Minnesota fans start calling for the head of Brad Childress?

A loss Sunday for the Vikings means they'd enter their bye week three games back of the division leader, with their next four games at the Jets, home to the Cowboys, at the Packers and at the Patriots.  Jesus.  (The Vikes drew Miami/Buffalo at home.  The Bears drew Pats/Jets at home.  That's pretty nice.) 

I admit I also have a hard time rooting against the Detroit Lions, especially the fourteen weeks a season they don't line up opposite the Bears.  It's a great sports franchise in a great American city - both of which have seen far better days.  For all that's said about the Saints' impact on the morale of the city of New Orleans, one has to believe the Lions could be equally impacting in a city with an unemployment rate of 15.2 percent.  They don't have to win it all.  Just a couple meaningful games.

And what could be more meaningful than Sunday in Minneapolis.  The Lions have been close against the Vikings for years but the game always seems to slip from their grip in the fourth quarter.  It'll be a costly interception, silly fumble, missed tackle or sometimes Dan Orlovsky runs out the back of the end zone for no particular reason.  The Lions know they are improved and Sunday they'll have the opportunity to showcase that improvement by defeating Favre, their greatest tormentor during these down times, and sending his new team to the showers.

For the Bears and Packers, that should be the hope.  The Vikings are certain to be a better team in the second half of the year, especially with their lightening schedule and suffocating run defense.  But light schedule or not, a loss against the Lions would make the emotional mountain too high to climb.

    I refuse too get to high or too low no matter what the outcome of Monday Night Football is. I believe we can play with the "Great" Aaron Rodgers (who sat like the runt of the litter with fleas that nobody wanted in the green room of the NFL draft a few short years ago) and their offense. I really expect the defensive effort by our front 7 to decide the game. Seriously, I am feeling BEARS 34-PACK 24.
    I need help with another matter: Who to start at RB this week for fantasy? Do I go with Forte vs GB or Best vs MIN? I'm in a PPR league, so I hate to sit Forte, but I'm leaning towards Best. Thoughts?

  • In reply to MattySouthside:

    Do I think Forte will rack up tons of rushing yards against GB? Maybe, maybe not. Total yards and TD's? Probably.

    Atleast I'd take him against GB over Best vs. Williams sisters.

    But don't take my word, never played any FF before.

  • In reply to MattySouthside:

    I watched both Bears games and both Packers games. And as much as it sickens me to say it, I watched a Bears team that looked much better than a Packers team.... Ugh, I feel like I need to throw up now...

    It's going to be a difficult game to win in Chicago. Especially with our run game being non existent. This running game issue is going to be a bigger deal than people are making it out to be, and MM's "Running back by committee" approach is terrible. Just my opinion of course. That type of scheme works when you have a backfield stacked like BUFFALO or Dallas, but not here in GB. It's pretty apparent that the Packers are going to roll with the personnel that they currently have unfortunately, so I'm hoping this Nance kid proves to be a tough, hard running back like Grant was. Jackson just isn't a feature back.

    I've got my fingers crossed but it'll be a tough game with the way we've been playing on offense. Gotta play 4 quarters.

    Not if we take the game to them 85. If that happens, the Bears become the sexy topic for all the talking heads. A 3-0 Bears team in the 3rd biggest market = BIG BUCKS. The Packers are just our stepping stone 85. We're moving up my friend.

    I believe this team is for real and our O is going to be a nightmare for teams to contain when they have to. For some reason I keep on having images of a Bears t-shirt I saw in the late 80's. It had a cartoon of a Bear holding a Packer in his hand wiping his ass. I wish I had bought it.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Urlacher brings so much to the Bears defense. With him out of the lineup last year it allowed us to drop some games that could have been Wins. One guy doesn't make a team win or lose but when your middle linebacker is Hunter Hillenmeyer instead of Urlacher then your defense suffers. If we are healthy and Urlacher, Briggs, Pisa and Peppers don't die in tragic car accidents this week then we win this game convincingly enough where even the creepiest looking dude ever and eternal Bears hater/Favre apologist/secret Rodgers stalker Chris Collingsworth will have to eat crow with his huge creepy teeth.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I lkinda like Collingsworth, but I love Urlacher and totally agree with that. Our crappy defense started and revolved around Mr. hairstyle last season.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Coaching what is clear to everyone in the stands constitutes genius. Wrong Turner was physically unable to react to the situation on the ground, like a bad field commander in the army fresh out of West Point.

    Martz is very good at taking a complicate scheme and TEACHING it, and ADAPTING it to the different IQ levels on the team.

    The best story on Martz is with Kitna on the Lions. I guess Kitna is like a 5 on the Wonderlic scale, so Martz re-did the playbook using color coded tabs, and an easy to understand system of situation = color. That's the sign of a TEACHER, and that's what makes Martz good at his job.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Nice analogy on the West Point thing. Turner was David Scwhimmer in Band of Brothers ....

    Reid is such a doofus. If he wants to smell like a rose, don't lay down with pigs.

    His PR guy could have said "just say it's because you take concussions REALLY seriously, and keep Vick in there game by game and then, if he keeps performing, just say you're reluctant to change a good thing right now."

    That way, you don't blow up Kolb's psyche and alienate the hell out of him, like you just did.

    Kolb is the new Drew Bledsoe. Bledsoe was hitting a dip in his career and Bellicheat publically flogged him, and Bledsoe never came back after Brady took the reins and ran.

    Listen to this smack:

    "I kinda feel bad for Bears fans (but not really) because they have been getting their hopes up with 2 lucky wins and they think they belong. The Pack are going to completely destroy Chicago on Monday night. Everybody who thinks that Cutler has finally changed things around has not met Matthews before. A-Rod is going to carve up the Bears defense like it hasn't seen before. I don't know what the line is but it should be at least 14 in favor of the Pack. Bears fans shouldn't get to discouraged though, you get creamed when you play the best team in the league. You might be able to beat the Queens this year though.
    Go Pack Go!"

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    I think if the Bears want a serious shot at the division...they will need to win this one. Have to at least split with the Pack in the home and home would be my guess. Although, I think just making the playoffs should be the real goal for this team (as of right now at least).

    The Vikings might be totally fucked. I think they win this week, but that is still a brutal four game stretch after the bye. They will need to win at least 2 of those, otherwise the hole might be too deep to get out of.

    Agree with Jeff's sentiment about the Lions and the city of Detroit. I was actually thinking of making the trip north for the Bears-Lions game this year. Anyone been to Ford Field? Is it any good?

    One of my best friends used to live just north of Motown. At the end of his life he ended up in the Detroit hospital for a few weeks. I went to visit him a few times and it was OK. However, it really is sad to see the entire area getting killed economically. As always, trust your instincts.

    It's a little early to "..decide the division" I think, but you never want to lose a home, division game.

    Besides, Mike Golic & Mark Schlereth both said the Packers will win the division even if that happen to lose to the bears on Monday night.

But if that's your raison d'etre Lovie, then you'd better @#$#in beat Green Bay.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    i feel that we win that game last year if Urlacher and Pisa are still in the game. It took 4 interceptions and a last second touchdown to win. If we don't give up any huge plays early in the game we win by 10. Well, maybe 3 because we will be up by 10 with 3 minutes left and they will drive down the field, score but then we will recover the kickoff and that will be it.

    A couple interesting articles. First a GB beat writer talks to NFL scouts who watched the 2 Bears games --
    http://packersnews.greenbaypressgazette.com/article/20100921/PKR01/100921150/Bears-scouting-report-Improved-Cutler-complements-stout-defense

    Some notes on Cutler's mechanics and the Olsen TD play --
    http://www.windycitygridiron.com/2010/9/21/1700216/cutler-to-olsen-the-play-that

    I hadn't noticed the Fouts/Coryell dropback mechanics, but I'll be looking out for that now...

  • In reply to 750mL:

    Also, I might add that helps put more perspective on Martz's comments over the summer. I know he starts all his QBs re-learning every single mechanic as he likes it, from receiving the snap, to footwork, to dropback, body attitude, etc... That + his play design approach (as Cutler says, he explains how to handle every situation/defensive look they might see for every play) really shows why he truly doesn't care one iota about what happened with Cutler and his INTs/decision-making last year.

    It really does have no relevance to him... he only cares about what Cutler can/can't do in his system, within the framework of how Martz does things. Whatever "mistakes" he made while doing what Turner asked him to do, with the preparations Turner gave him, with the mechanics Turner had him use, really don't matter -- his offense is really just THAT different.

  • In reply to 750mL:

    Kinda makes you think what the hell Turner was doing, if anything. I would have thought preparing your franchise QB for all situations was, y'know, the whole point of your existence as an OC.

  • In reply to 750mL:

    Usually I like Like Wilfong's pieces. But there's way too much hoo-haa over Olsen's reception. For starters it was his *only* one during the entire game as far as I can recall. Secondly, it was a seam route to the TE. Where's the fire? They should be throwing them the whole game!

    And it was a *great* decision to move Shaffer to his natural position and vice versa? Child please. It was the *obvious* and *only* thing to do. Apparently coaches are geniuses for carrying out the obvious.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    okay, a quick dump, not a seam route. A hot read, let's hold off on play of the year and just call it what it was . Good TD.

    Oh wow. Then he points out that he notices Air Coryell in there? Duh. Martz runs the Gillman-Coryell offense just like guess who? Ron Turner. Different variations they may be, but the same animal nonetheless, as pointed out by Coach Z over on the CB.com message boards.

    "Olsen should have run a drag route, but when he saw the OLB ..."

    - Damn, these bloggers are good. They even know what *play* was called in the huddle ....

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    The Bears are playing for much more than a victory on Monday night. A victory will send a shot across the bow of every team left on their schedule. When a team can tighten the sphincter's of their opponents before they take the field, they walk onto the turf with "the edge" most playoff caliber teams possess. In this league, that is something that's earned. A victory Monday night will earn the Bears the edge that will give them a decisive advantage for the rest of the season. This game's implications are huge gents, regular season doesn't get much bigger than this.

    Please, C. Harris, don't be as slow as I think. But, I don't give a shit about speed if you're in the right spot and keep crackin helmets like you do.

    Can Lach still drop back 30 yards into coverage?

    Monday looms!

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Things that worry me Crown :

    * Even when we know it's coming we can't stop the passing attacks. Playing man-off we just plain *allow* teams to march the ball up field on us with underneath stuff and then invite them to fire up their red-zone offense.

    * Harris hits but he can't cover.

    * No worries on Urlacher my man. I saw the Cowgirls in or around the 40 yard line and Rohomo launches one down to Austin in the endzone. Who's all over the situation? Child support captain fantastic.

    I am thinking this may be one of the hardest games this season, both teams are polishing themselves up, and the Bears have come a ways so far this year, and with Peppers and Urlacher on defense I am hoping Rodgers isn't touched.

    I am thinking we should start the game with Flynn as our starting QB, have Clay Matthews in the backfield, and have Flynn purposely throw and interception to Urlacher and have Matthews just knock him a hard one. Not that I fear Urlacher or Peppers but Urlacher creates a presence on the field, and without him the Bears D, are pushovers.

    From a Packer Fan.

    Even he fears Urlacher, even though he says he doesn't but come on.. why knock him out?

    I'm pretty sure you're safe Irish. Hank's married to Kendra from the Girls Next Door. I've never seen you before but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess Kendra has a nicer turd cutter than you!

  • In reply to ImissButkus:

    I promised myself I wouldn't, but I had to go look at that forum to see what kind of mischief GP was up to. I have to say that while really funny... we simply can't sink to their level man. Of course any and all of you can do whateverthefuckyouchoose... but for me, I'll keep my eyes on my own paper.

    Like Trac says, we have one of the toughest games coming up on Monday... one that could honestly decide if we're a playoff caliber team or not - it won't doom us or make us, it is just one game, but from a self confidence and psyche standpoint it's huge. I'm excited and nervous. I think we can pull off the W.

    One side note

    MB man, here's the difference between Us and Them.

    "They" come in here and run weak ass smack and shit all over the place, like an unwanted houseguest with the runs.

    We can go in there and mock them and they are too stupid to know. Did you see that one response?

    'Soldier Field is a though place to play. Not quite Lambeau, but close.'

    A though place to play? What is that, existentialism? I laughed my ass off, nothing like living up to the stereotype.

    Besides, Cheesy already ran over there and narked like a little fuckwad. My account is locked out. Shows they can't take a joke.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    dude they locked my account to right away. my name was JAYCUTLERSAID. everytime i go to post it says some stupid bullshit

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Shit, I was wondering why I couldn't post anymore. Did you get a 'can't post links' yadda yadda bullshit comment ?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I know man, it was nothing on you GP. I thought it was damn funny and a great idea. After dealing with those guys I just feel dirty man. Don't think anyone's blog deserves that disrespect. Just super weird to me... like walking past a homeless guy and kicking him and thinking that's fun.

    Anyway, you get points for pulling it off well.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    +1 funny

  • In reply to gpldan:

    But Soldier Field is a though place to play.

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    I posted three of their responses to our games on the last thread. They're worried, no mistake.

  • In reply to MattySouthside:

    Maybe if the bears would have taken rodgers from the green room instead of seclecting Cedric Benson, they wouldn't be complete dogshit. But no, Jerry Angelo knew better than that. I can't blame him, I mean, when Rex grossman is already your man

  • In reply to MattySouthside:

    I'd be surprised if the Fudge nation could put 24 points up on us Matty. Izzy, Pep, Toeaina, Briggsy and Lac can all pin their ears back and tee off on this guy because they know they can't run it at them. And when that 3-4 defense comes against Cutler, Martz can dial up a bunch of screen passes and kill them. Sweet. Who would have thought we'd be king of the hill so soon?

    "The packers are going to steamroll the over-confident and over-hyped bears. the cowboys are atrociously bad and the lions are worse. each game was a fight for them. we've faced one of the better defenses in philly and one of the top secondaries in buffalo. we're going to roll in the TDs"

    that dude really said "one of the top secondaries in Buffalo." ROFLMAO!!!!! wow.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Wait, you mean philly is a good defense? Why did the Lion's almost beat them then?

    Bufffalo? are you kidding lol

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Fact: as of now, Derrick Anderson has more yards passing than Arron Rodgers.

    Ouch?

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Fact: Lovie Smith would give any player on the bears roster, plus his left testicle, for Aaron Rodgers.

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    Fact: That's fiction.

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    Again, why?

    Based on the last four games, Jay Cutler is the *only* QB in the NFL to average out on QB ratings over 100 in every game. He's averaged a rating of 118, thrown 300 yards a game, 63.7 % completions, and wait for it .... 13 TDs and only 2 interceptions. Haters responses welcome. I have a bucket ready .... 13 2

    Rodger's last 4 games :

    6 Tds 2 INTs, 65.1% 915 yards and a 73 rating in week one.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Alex Smith has more passing yards than Arron Rodgers

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    "There are lies, damn lies and statistics" - Mark Twain.

    The Cards and 49ers are a combined 1-3 with all those passing yards because, as we all should remember...

    "Statistics are for losers".

    Speaking of losers, HOW ABOUT that NFC West?
    2-6 so far and 0-4 outside the division.

    I hope the monday night football song intro thing isnt as bad as last weeks. That band totally sucked last week.

    It's like a South Park song ..."Monday night FOOTBALL ... Team America FUCK YEAH !!"

    I replied to you GPL. Tee Hee. You are naughty.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Thanks guys. The headline actually links to our site so I don't think it's technically plagiarism. That site is a news compilation source and they don't claim authorship. So while I don't love it, there's little I can do.

    I agree with everything but Detroit being a great American city.

  • Doc, Dave... that was GP having some fun on the packers blog playing the part of our very own #16. I don't condone it, but it was funny as hell.

  • Bobby D and Pacino got nuthin' on me.
