Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers Preview

Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers Preview

Normally by Wednesday we here at DaBearsBlog (it's just one guy) are beginning the transition from the game before to game ahead. This week - because the NFL has somewhat ludicrously forced the game's longest rivalry into their opening Thursday night slot - we have no such luxury. We move on to Lambeau...


  • I always like the Chicago Bears.
  • I broke down the emotional ramifications of this contest in yesterday's post and I stand by those. Here is the sentence that sums it up: "The Bears have an opportunity to sound the first danger alarm of the Aaron Rodgers era in Green Bay, Wisconsin."
  • There are two UNPRECEDENTED beliefs I have heading into this pivotal road contest. (1) I firmly believe the Bears will be able to score 20-30 points on the porous Packers defense. (2) I believe, unless Sunday was a clever rope-a-dope, Brian Urlacher is the Bears' primary defensive liability. If Urlacher can't go full steam, Aaron Rodgers and Jermichael Finley will destroy them over the middle of the field.
  • I'm going to say this every week the Bears remain healthy: I don't know what group of corners in the NFL - outside perhaps the Jets - can cover this group of Bears receivers. (And even that perhaps is weak since Marshall has had tremendous success against Revis.)
  • In the past it has always seemed the Packers could muster a cut-back/stretch run game against the Bears even when they failed to do so against the rest of the league. Well the team I watched San Francisco manhandle Sunday is not going to generate the type of consistent ground attack that made Ahman Green and Ryan Grant such pests.
  • Greg Jennings terrifies me and Greg Jennings is  nursing a groin injury that may keep him off the field Thursday night. (One has to believe, even if Jennings plays, he'd be slowed down by anything going wrong down there.)
  • This is a benchmark contest for Julius Peppers, Israel Idonije, Shea McClellin, Corey Wootton...etc. If the Bears do not muster a pass rush from the perimeter they will lose to the Packers. They HAVE TO hit Rodgers.
  • Last Christmas the Bears were down to their third running back, started a non-entity at quarterback (Sorry, Josh) and still ran the ball for 161 yards against the Packers. The Bears should be able to serve the Pack a steady diet of Forte and Bush to achieve the dual goal of keeping Rodgers off the field and draining the energy out of the Lambeau faithful.
  • I'm a firm believer that cornerbacks thrive on confidence. On swagger. And if Peanut Tillman is not ready to go Thursday night I think Tim Jennings will carry the banner well on the outside. I don't see how he's not fired up after seeing himself on tape Monday. (Hell, I was.)
  • You hear this all the time: there will be no surprises because these two teams know each other well. You know what? The Packers don't know THIS Bears team at all! Nobody does. Rod Marinelli and Lovie Smith can go into the notebook and simply adapt one of the dozen game plans they've used against Rodgers/McCarthy over the last three years. Can Dom Capers? Absolutely not. Capers has sixty minutes of Bears tape to work off and thirty minutes of those were essentially garbage time. The Bears have a significant advantage in terms of preparation which is crucial for a short week.
  • Since the Bears released Ryan Quigley this week I am assuming (I know, I know) Adam Podlesh was just bad Sunday and not injured. Because he WAS bad. And he can't be giving the Packers attack short fields all night.
  • I believe Jay Cutler is going to outplay Aaron Rodgers.

These games are always close. Always within a touchdown or so. I see the pattern staying true and Robbie Gould winning this one with a late, short field goal.

Chicago Bears 30, Green Bay Packers 27

  • As Bart Scott first said, "Can't wait!"

  • First to say, thanks Mom for raising me a Bear fan. And that you will be missed. And to cancer, well, you can fuck off.

    Bear down all!

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    Sorry for your loss MBF. Trust me when I say she'll never really leave you...and someday you'll see her again.

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    Sorry for your loss of your mom to the Big C. Big C sucks.

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    Sucks losing a parent but I'm sure your mom is glad she went before her kid or kids. Lost my dad last year(heart attack) and I will tell you the pain doesn't go away, or at least it hasn't for me, you move on and remember the good times and it does get easier. Hardest times will be holidays, birthdays and things like that. Cancer is a cock sucker though and in your words can "fuck off".

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    Sorry MBF. That really sucks.

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    MBF's Mom your in our thoughts and prayers.

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    Really sorry to hear about your mother losing the cancer battle. The only thing that helps is time. I lost my mother 17 years ago and still think about her every day. Same with my dad (24 years ago). Every time I think about them I smile. Hang in there brother.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Thanks to everybody for their kind words. It's been a surreal week; I can't even get into Packers week. Like a kid not getting excited for Christmas. Please beat down the Packer trolls for me this week.

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    Shit, Mich. We're really sorry. Peace be with you.

  • In reply to MichBearFan:


    I hope this offers you some comfort, as it did me.


    Gone from My Sight
    Henry Van Dyke

    I am standing upon the seashore.

    A ship, at my side, spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.

    I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck
    of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

    Then, someone at my side says, “There, she is gone.”

    Gone where?

    Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast,
    hull and spar as she was when she left my side. And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.

    Her diminished size is in me - not in her.

    And, just at the moment when someone says, “There, she is gone,” there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, “Here she comes!”

    And that is dying…

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    Rest in peace MichBear's mom. And fuck cancer.

  • Someone else can look this up to verify, but I heard something very interesting yesterday. In this rivalry, the team who wins the turnover battle has won the game 100% of the time, everytime. Cutler needs to play smart, what's his record at Lambo?

  • In reply to Shady:

    New history gets written on Thursday. We start a new era ... post Brandon and Bush acquisitions.11/5 straight up or 10/11 Bears +6. Pick your poison.

    A-rod will get hit .... a lot. Packers pounded in cheeseland. Finally. The superbowl season gets heralded in week two ... and Brian will rally the troops like Maximus.

    Once more unto the breach dear friends .....

  • In reply to Shady:

    I am pretty sure Cutler has not won at Lambo.

    That stat has been true since 2001. Whoever wins the turnover battle wins the game.

  • Thanks R2, where have you been dude? Swinger parties? Welcome back.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Artoo is too big a deal now with his writing to be on here with us lowly fellows.

  • In reply to Shady:

    He's so money.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    He's money, baby.

  • First off, I agree with you on the offense and the musings related to the Packers' (lack of) D. But I think it's really too early to say, and just so much speculation, on Urlacher's condition.

    Lovie made the right play by letting him test the knee out in game conditions, then shutting him down once they took a 20 point lead. People can grouse about the 2 tackles and 1 pass defended in a half's work, but that's still more production than Lance put up in a whole game (2 tackles). Roach got a whopping 3 tackles. The fact was that the bulk of the work went to the secondary and the line. Hayden and Conte each had 7 tackles. Jennings was a beast... 2 picks, 4 pass deflections. Then you have Melton with 2 sacks, 3 tackles-for-loss, etc. Because the Colts shifted to an air-it-out mode, and the DL shut down the run game, the LBs just didn't get much action.

    As for those that wish to grouse about Urlacher's coverage... Lovie & Co very obviously shifted to a super deep prevent-ish shell as early as middle of 2Q. Argue all you want about how ugly and frustrating it is (and believe me, it is ugly and frustrating), but the prevent philosophy does work (with exceptions of course). They were playing deep and soft, which left many holes. They traded yards/completions for turnover opportunities. You can't pin the high number of completions on Urlacher's (supposedly diminished) range -- it was simply defensive philosophy based on game situation.

    Let's see how he plays against GB before we prematurely assume anything about Urlacher's health. Go Bears!

    (Also man, you really are harsh on punters Jeff... It wasn't a good game by Podlesh, but it was a far cry from a terrible game. I remember one short punt, but even that wasn't as short as it looked live...)

  • In reply to Michael L:

    Watch the Indy run for a TD from the 20 by Donald Brown. If you have the game on DVR. The broadcast uses the flying camera to show us the play develop from above and behind the LOS, so you can really see the blocks and how the play develops.

    Please tell me you see the same thing I saw: Lack essentially hobbling to the gap and then being brushed aside, unable to leverage his weight AT ALL.

    Watching select plays again, I cannot find a SINGLE play that Lack takes on a block. Part of this is how deep his set was and this never-seen-before formation where Briggs shifts in and Lack stacks up about 2-3 yards behind him, so you don't know who is going to take the flat and who is going to challenge the run block.

    If you see a play that Lack actually leans or pushes against ANYBODY, please direct me to it. Thanks.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    GP, he did look very slow and I did see the same thing, not just on that play but on a few others where he looked like he was slow and hurt. I however want to put that on lack of game play so far, I still think he might be getting used to wearing that knee brace during game play and is still working on getting in game shape. My guess would be he's still a little nervous about the knee too and hopefully that will change coming in the next few weeks.

  • In reply to JAB1:

    Yup, Lach looked slow and stiff. However, he admitted he was not in game shape, so his performance might have been a combination of that + brace + cautiousness + inj.

    We just don't know which culprit was the more responsible. If we could make a pie chart, I'd hope that most of the blame goes to conditioning because that can always be improved.

    We're gonna need Lach too. We can't allow all those bullshit draw plays GB likes to call, and we can't allow Rodgers to run for first downs.

    SF took both away, and thus controlled their O.

    If Lach is handicapped, no way is he going to be able to chase down Rodgers as he runs for the first, or drop fast enough for Finley (yet alone cover him in man).

  • "This is a benchmark contest for Julius Peppers, Israel Idonije, Shea McClellin, Corey Wootton...etc. If the Bears do not muster a pass rush from the perimeter they will lose to the Packers. They HAVE TO hit Rodgers."

    I cannot agree more Jeff. Let's hope we can get the pressure we need on Rogers to make the holes in the middle a mute point. And yes we can and WILL run on this defense since they stink.

    If Urlacher is not 100% we'll know early and I hope they pull him early again if he cannot do the job. I love the guy (in a brotherly way) but we need to keep healthy players on the field to have the best chance to win. Papa Bear had this philosophy almost to a brutal level and didn't care if he hurt player's feelings. He wanted to win and that was the bottom line.

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    Part of the decision rests on how well the other veterans can pick up the slack as far as directing the defense is concerned. Urlacher mentioned that Conte is never in the wrong place, but I really don't think he has the experience or field cred to run the defense.

    Does Roach get it well enough? Probably.
    How about Costanzo? Seems a bit early to think he would.

    Not having Brian makes ours a lesser defense.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Look I think we should have been looking for a Urlacher replacement last draft. Not to replace him for this season or even next but to pick up a kid who can be mentored by him and then slide in the spot when the inevitable happens...Urlacher is just too old or hurt or both to play.

    We might not have a choice but to bench him this game if he couldn't do the job last game. There can be no doubt he wants to play and he has the heart to play but we have to be real if he just can't play.

    I think Briggs can run the defensive play calls..him and peanut should be able to fill that role without issue. This game is going to be very tough with our Oline troubles and no the Urlacher issue. I still think we'll win though and I think it's going to be the shoot out scenario.

    Wackers = 31
    Bear = 38

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    This might depress you, but the Bears DO presume to have Lach's heir on their team: ROACH.

    To a lesser extent, they were also grooming DeCiccio. Now Constanzo takes over for the great white hope, but he's a bit undersized (though I love his mentality).

    Why the Bears keep insisting that Roach is a good LB is beyond me (It's right up there with "Rex is our QB" and "Hester is a #1WR). He's mediocre at best. Luckily, in this age of pass, LBs in FA can be had for cheap. I mean, the Eagles got Ryans for a bag of chips, and I have no doubt that a stud LB from a bad team would love playing for the Bears, but that's next year.

    For now, I guess we all have to pucker our arses and hope Lach's knee holds up.

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    A lot of us agree, 4ever. My dream was to get Keuchly, but that was not about to happen without us trading way up.

    There was and probably still should be speculation whether or not McClellin could be the guy in the middle. He's fast, tall, and has a great motor so who knows? There are other skills he'd need, of course, but I'm very curious to see how that young man develops as a Bear.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    I THINK ONE DAY HE WILL FILL THOSE SHOES, HE HAS A NOSE AND NWILL POWER TO GET TO THE BALL..sorry for the caps few days off and few drinks in ....

  • In reply to Bears-4-Ever:

    Sadly, what we saw Sunday just may be "100%" of what 54 is anymore.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    You as well as anyone should know what stud linebacker can do with bum knees. See Butkus, Dick

  • Sounds good, except that at this point in Butkus' career (season13), Dick had been RETIRED for 4 years.

  • The Bears o-line cannot come out looking like they did the first two series of the Colts game against the Packers. If that happens we will be playing catch up all game. If we lose in the field position battle right away its a game the Bears aren't prepared to win yet. Jay is still not comfortable with his o-line. Now that could and should change in a few games when he's droppping back and not getting his bell rung play after play. We all know when Jay doesn't have time he is quick to make bad decisions. If the oline comes out and gives Jay some confidence right away I think it will be a long day for the Packers D.

  • In reply to JAB1:

    Garza leaving the ball in the dirt was pathetic. Cutler's read on the early INT-TD was abysmal. We need to get off to a fast start and not take two 3-and-out series to get our heads into the game. Packers seem to always come out firing against us, getting us 0wn3d by the 2nd Q and back on our heels. That needs to stop.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Agreed, it seems like the Bears always spot the Packers 7pts before the D kicks into gear. The Packers have scored on their opening drive like, what, 19 of the last 20 games?

  • In reply to Shady:

    Sadly, that seems right.

  • Trying to slow my roll here but I really like our chances tomorrow night. I just don't think the Pack D has a chance in hell of keeping the Bears under 30 points. We also have a quality run game to lean on to finish the game. Jenning's injury is the cherry on top. If he's out or significantly impacted by the injury, I just don't see them keeping pace on the scoreboard.

  • Agree 100% GP. It will be intersting to see how Webb and Carimi handle Perry and Lesbian Thor. Webb struggles against many but really seems to struggle against the smaller speed rushers. That's the key to the game right there if you ask me. If Jay has any time at all he will pick the Packers D apart. I'm telling you, if this line can go 2-3 weeks in a row without getting him killed the dude is putting up 4,500+ yards this year. If Kellen Davis pulls another Olay like he did the first play of the Colts game they better bench his ass for Adams. I'm getting tired of that guy.

  • In reply to JAB1:

    I think a lot of us are getting tired of Kellen Davis. If he could block, we wouldn't need Spaeth on the roster and could have kept Clutts. Though Crown/Coach (sorry, can't remember who) was probably right that Rodriquez will make us not miss Clutts before too long.

    Actually, Evan may be a key factor tomorrow night. We are likely to need good blocks in the offensive backfield on passing downs. Coupled with some effectiveness versus Perry and Matthews at the point of attack, Matty could have a really big night outside. That's another benefit of big WRs - run blocking. In fact, I've got nothing against the notion of running the outside early and often to beat those guys up.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    I think we'll see a lot more passes to the TE this game.


    Because I think we saw 1 vs. the Colts.

    And I'm still on my don't-show-GB-anything conspiracy regarding last week's performance.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Concur. My KD baramoter is nearly maxed out already. His whiffs are gonna get someone killed. His wrong routes are gonna cost Cutler a few ints (Cutler's already given him the evil eye a few times, and only targeted him ONCE in the Colts game).

    KD needs to show up, and show up soon. Kellen Winslow is just sitting there like that shitty beer you don't like drinking, but drink nonetheless cause there's nothing else at the party.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    If Davis could block the Bears would still need Spaeth. A team needs two in-line tightends for short yardage formations, and Adams simply isn't one. Davis could be the best blocking tightend in the NFL and that still wouldn't lead to the Bears keeping Clutts over Spaeth.

    Davis played 75 out of 77 offensive snaps. He obviously had a couple of glaring mistakes out of those 75 snaps, but overall he wasn't that bad. He had some highlight worthy blocks as well. In the end he's far more average than bad as a blocker.

  • The Packers suck.

  • In reply to Viva:

    They do suck, but they're a pretty good football team.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    Pretty good at sucking.

  • hee hee

  • Oh, and good pic Jeff.

  • So... Anthony Adams cameos it up in the next video, "Stuff Chicago Bears Fans Say" - he should have done it by himself, as I found the other guy terribly annoying.

    Turns out, the other guy makes his YouTube money making Stuff _______ Fans Say videos... Which makes his whole part bullshit. I hope I don't ruin it for you, but it's good to know going into it...


  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    It's reaching funny, not ha-ha funny.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    "Side kick" was the only part that made me el oh el.

    And it was more of a snicker.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Additionally, a "Stuff Da Bears Blog Commenters Say" would be worth about 100 hits, but could make for some comedic gold.

    The Federal Reserve. Fucking. Dead.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    No kidding. All of us would go nuts but that's preaching to the choir. Truly would be funny.

  • Spaeth is the new backup long snapper now that Clutts is gone. The report said he was getting good at it.

    Let's just hope Patrick stays healthy.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    That Raider game shows the importance of a good long snapper. Their backup choked the game away for them.

  • Good post Jeff. Should be a hell of a game. How 'bout that Bacon fella? Great opener. Remind me to leave my wife at home if we're getting together.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Won't slow a switch hitter down. He'll simply regroup and offer you some pork.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Pitching or catching, it's all the same. I've done a lot of things I'm not proud of but I've never gone there. I'm like a lesbian, I don't do dick.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    I liked Andrew dice clay's saying... there's no suck thing as a bi guy, you either suck dick or you don't.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Canada, your not a "male lesbian" though, right?

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    I can assure you I'm not Cor. Thanks for asking.

    BTW, I was glad to see you and Crown had a meeting of the minds. Anybody can get mad and go off. It takes a person of character to reach out. Well Done!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Thanks, Canada. Crown's a good dude and I'm glad there's no hard feelings between us. I think we both just took it a little too far. I was pretty jacked up on vodka Sunday night, and I'm never good on too much vodka (Jameson or Patron on the other hand...). I had too many Bloody Mary's after finding a great new mix. The last time I drank that much vodka was about 7 years ago on 9/11 at a Bears vs Redskins game. Went with my brother, sister, and Dad. Sister was the DD. We got ripped on bloody mary's and beer before the game, and kept going. It was a brutal, boring game with the Redskins winning 9-7. Clinton Portis was the only offensive player who played good for either team. So we kept drinking, making asses out of ourselves. My sister was super pissed and disgusted with us on the drive home. Moral of the story: all three of us are mainly beer drinkers, and we should avoid large quantities of hard liquor.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Anytime a gay or bi guy starts steering the conversation that direction I always tell them the same thing. There will be no penis between us. The few bi guys that I've ever been around were all the same. They'd fuck a lunch bucket if they thought there was a thermos in it.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:



  • Packers DID sack Smith 4 times Sunday. And it concerns me that our O-Line looked bad until Dwight Freeney hobbled off.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    I think a few of them were more on Smith for not releasing the ball quick enough. He also doesn't have great pocket awareness.

  • Bears and 6 is feeling like a solid pick right now. You gonna set up the pick'em soon Jeff? Curious what some of the other spreads are.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Saturday pm maybe? I think he mentioned no Thursday games.

  • In reply to EnderWiggin:

    You're probably remembering that right. I couldn't. It would be difficult to sort out without out knowing the injury status of each team. Too bad. What could have been better than picking Bears and 6 against the Fudge and winning outright? (I'm guessing Bacon or Crown will fill in that blank.)

  • One thing in our favor tomorrow night, Nate Collins is back. Maybe it was because he was playing against the second stringers in PS but he was disruptive as hell. Hopefully that will carry over to the real games.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Canada, if were hoping Nate Collins is the difference maker in the game tomorrow we are screwed. Could it happen? sure, but I'm not counting on it. I'm counting on the O to control the ball and keep the Packers O off the field.

    How nice is it that no trolls have been on talking smack since the Packers loss? Please god let us beat the Packers tomorrow and keep them off for a few more weeks anyways.

  • In reply to JAB1:

    I agree about Collins but Paea and Okoye are still dinged up and Big Toe is great at holding up at the point of attack but not particularly disruptive. Melton was the only DT last week that was blowing things up.

    Couldn't possibly agree more about the Fudgie trolls. Big Cheese acts like he isn't a dick and actually talks football occasionally to throw us off but then reverts to total troll. Fuck all of 'em.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    The main problem is that there is too much troll food made available on this blog.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    100% Dave. I try not to ever engage them no matter what they post.

  • I really like the "rushmen" depth. With Collins and Okoye being able to play, I can't wait! Also, I believe Tice has set up some plays specifically for Evans. Both Jeffery and Rodriguez are silent assassins.
    Packers = Muertos!yt

  • As always, this game will be won in the trenches. SF D shut down the draws and contained Rodger's run, while applying pressure on passing down thanks to a mixture of blitzes and coverages. In other words, they dominated.

    The SF Oline totally blew GB backwards, making old man Gore look like AP. On passes, the SF line did just enough to slow down the blitzes. In other words, they dominated.

    If we do the same, we win. Seems simplistic, but if our Dlinemen come out like Tasmanian Devils and our Olinemen perform just good enough - victory shall be ours.

  • Good call Butch. I was actually screaming at the TV to run the ball more last week. Same for this week. The more we keep Woodson close to the LOS, the better off we are. If we pick up the blitzes consistently, the O will go off.

  • First sentence is, of course, spot on.

  • 20 years of data have confirmed two facts.

    Teams who have won the 1st game have gone to the playoffs 69% of the time.

    Teams who have lost the 1st game have gone to the playoffs 31% of the time.

    Teams who have gone 0-2 have gone to the SB 1% of the time.

    We MUST beat the Pack. We can't get beat by them 5 times in a row. That's embarrassing, no matter what the circumstances, esp since Lovie's priority was to beat the Fudge.

  • "We MUST beat the Pack. We can't get beat by them 5 times in a row. That's embarrassing, no matter what the circumstances, esp since Lovie's priority was to beat the Fudge."

    100 fucking %.

  • I have returned from the Southern United States with my head attatched to my body and my liver in a great deal of pain. Got to watch the game down there so that was awesome! Didnt make it to the casino there to bet on it though. :( Luckily I also DVR'd it because by the 4th qtr I was pretty lit full of free shots. Hope everyone had a great 1st Sunday of football. Anyone going to the game tomorrow night?

  • God I love Cabo. Now that I'm decoupled, going to have some reliving the past trips down. FREEEE BEEEEER!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It was pretty epic. Although the food was only so so we got ruined every night on unlimited free booze. I'm pretty sure my liver was close to failure by the end of the trip but it was worth it . Soooo many hot ladies there. Must have been 5-6 bachelorette parties down there plus a dozen super hot Aussie chicks.

  • and... aaaand....aaaaaannnnnd!?!?!?!

    There always is, fucking place is insane. You have to go on Memorial Day weekend. Spring break is WAY too young for me now, but MD is all the hot 25-40 yr old hotties looking to rock it out.

    Food.... not.... good!??!!?!? Dude, if you told me you were going to Cabo, I would have recommended a bunch of places. Just have to go to the right place and order the right thing maings. Glad you had a blast.

  • Little Donny Driver, fresh off his Dancing with C-Listers and hot salsa babes, looks to fill in for Jennings

  • BTW J.T. Thomas did his thing on special teams last game. I hope he gets more play time. I know one of you guys mentioned that he could become a legit stud and probably fill in for Lach in the future.I also think Bennet will have a great game with the Bears with Tomorrow. Cant WAIT!!


    the real pisser here is..if we beat them....their mantra will be "they beatoff themselves"...opps I mean "beat themselves"....then again what's the difference in fudgepeckerville.

    GP Did you see what I did there?

    For those of you who eschew the "Trac" theory and think this sock puppet is cheese.

    Cheeseheads don't keep harping on Chicago politics. Cheeseheads don't give a fuck about a teacher's strike. Trac was a Loyola grad who had sharp opinions on Chicago city government.

    Come on... connect the dots.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Exactly. Unless, it's Scott Walker's brother. Continual harping on chicago politics and the painful writing style are sure signs its trac. I don't think a packer's fan would waste so much time doing this. It takes a lot of pent up frustration to continue at this level. I think trac is still fuming that I smelled it over the internet that he made the whole my daughter got raped thing up to fit in here, but nailed he works at the Mobil station. I doubt he has a daughter. But, I wouldn't say he offered insightful commentary before; more like spewed rhetoric from main mass media outlets. Why would a packer fan keep bringing up being a trac hand puppet? It's got to suck to be rejected from your favorite team's blog by fellow fans.

    GLad I came back to this thread for a last look... that was worth it!

    That was awesome!

  • Didn't Potlesh average over 40 on Sunday? You constantly nit pick the punter.

  • Packer cheerleaders are super hot... for wiscaaaansin chicks:

  • Just looking at the schedule again. That game at the Cowboys in a couple of weeks is the high water mark of the first half of the season from my perspective. Tomorrow night is going to be fun, but I think we win that game and Cutler comes out pretty clean. Rams next week, thats Colts part 2. If they go into Dallas, and the O-line keeps Cutler alive, the Bears will be taking the first weekend of the playoffs off. Book it. Hopefully JWebb falls down on DWare's ankle early in the first quarter. That works pretty well.

  • In reply to Johnnywad:

    Hahaha did J Webb fall on purpose or was it just his normal clumsy self?

  • Btw MB, I Believe JT will do his thing this year, at least on special teams. He tackled for a fumble I believe so, you never know.......

  • Wouldn't be a Da Bears Blog post without some hyperbole from the drama king.

    The first "danger alarm" of the aaron rodgers era was sounded in detroit in 2010 when he was knocked out with his 2nd concussion of the year. Injuries are the only concern until he's north of 34 years old. If you think a 2 game home losing streak to two "superbowl contenders" is going to draw concerns about the Aaron Rodgers era, you've lost the plot. As an individual player, the dude is **on pace** to be the GOAT.

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    0-2 would draw concerns about this year perhaps, but it won't have an effect on the outlook of the near future.

  • Already conceding the season.

    This is my post in the article "Five Questions Heading To Bourbonnais" from July.

    "Barb Mar said July 24, 2012 at 12:00 am

    The only question for me is this: who will be the number 3 CB in case of injury & for the competition. The other positions are pretty lock and load... starters and fist options. We all know how Lovie thinks.
    Of course the Special 'Special Teams' are the real story for the Bears Training Camp, but it's not like we will learn things before final cuts."

    I think I was right on the money as Tillman got hurt early so Hayden might have to step up tonight. Then right at the end of the preseson they got McManis who was the starting right gunner on punt coverage (Weeden on the left). De Cicco got hurt also and that could have been a blow. J.T. Thomas stepped in.

    The other think that I see is the fact that they saw real toughness in Rodriguez if they decided to give him so many snaps as H Back. The did fucking great stuff in run and pass protect. GREAT JOB.

    Where is a thing that is just sitting on my mind... Tice said that Forte will stay in to protect Cutler, Forte said that whit the WR 'we' have he does not need to catch so many balls. I think that's bullshit. I think that's a long con they started 2 months ago just for this Packers game. They understood the importance of the Week 2 game (easy week one) so they created this big smoke screen. I think Forte is going to get close to 100 yards in the air. The matchups are soooo delicious in the middle of the field in the game tonight.
