Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears Game Preview: Aaron Rodgers Returns for NFC North Division Title Bout

| December 26th, 2013

packPhoto from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

While the national media wanted to turn Sunday night’s debacle into a Jay Cutler debate (they failed), those of us who’ve watched every snap of this Chicago Bears season know better. The Bears as currently constructed and currently performing can’t beat an opponent they trail by 14-21 points. Why? Because two things have to happen for a team to eradicate a deficit that wide: they have to stop the run and they have to create turnovers. But the Bears are so bad at stopping the run the opponent never needs to throw the ball and thus the opportunity for turnovers does not present itself.

So with a defense so incapable of stopping the run…and the pass, for that matter…

Why do I like the Chicago Bears this week?

I always like the Chicago Bears.

FIRST, A RODGERS THOUGHT OR TWO…

  • I know he’s a remarkable player but his playing Sunday does not drastically impact my opinion on the game. I thought Matt Flynn and the Packers offense would have continual success moving the ball down the field on the Bears defense. How many more points does Rodgers create? 7-10? At most? Well I’ve got them in the 30s already…

BUT WHAT FOOTBALL REASONS, JEFF?

  • Bears defense since the bye week (and the Briggs/Tillman injuries that proceeded it) has not been bad at home in the least. They lost to Detroit, giving up only 21 points. They beat Baltimore, giving up only 20 points. They thrashed Dallas, giving up 28 points and 7 of those on a last-minute Kyle Orton drive that seemed to define garbage time. Their road form has been abysmal but this contest is at Soldier Field.
  • Packers are 1-2 on the road since the Rodgers injury, beating only the Cowboys in one of the NFL’s greatest collapses. In those three road games they’ve allowed 103 points.

  • In their last two road games the Packers allowed 235 yards on the ground to Detroit and 7 yards a clip to Dallas. The Bears should have a lot of success with Forte and the run game.
  • I am not sure either side will mount much in the pass rush department – especially with Clay Matthews back on the shelf – but the Bears edge rushers had their finest hour against the Pack the first time around. Will it be a repeat performance?
  • I wrote all about the importance of this game for Jay Cutler. (If you didn’t read it, you can do so by CLICKING HERE.) Cutler has had many moments of brilliance throughout his Bears career but he has not had a defining game. Bears need it Sunday.
  • Unexciting Statistical Analysis Warning! Green Bay is fourth worst in the league at covering kickoffs and seventh worst in the league at covering punts.
  • Mike McCarthy stated he expects him to play but Eddie Lacy not being at 100% and possibly not playing at all is a potentially big deal. Lacy ran over the Bears earlier this year and would have done the same Sunday. Can they get the same results from James Starks? Probably. But it is surely less definite.

TWO CHRISTMAS VIDEOS

 

MATCH-UP OF REMARKABLE IMPORTANCE

  • Marc Trestman v. Mike McCarthy. McCarthy always seems to have something special for this game, doesn’t he? A fake field goal. A well-time onside kick. Something. Trestman will be keenly aware of that and must understand that any momentary lapse in concentration on the Bears sideline could lead to a game-altering moment for the Packers. Trestman’s sideline approach must be simple: attack. He needs his offense cooking from the opening kick. He needs to empty the playbook and once the playbook is empty he needs to draft another playbook and empty that. There is zero excuse for the Bears not scoring 28+ at home in a game to decide the division. None.

MOST INTERESTING PLAYER ON THE FIELD

  • Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, of course. Should we expect Rodgers to be a bit rusty Sunday? Sure. But I can’t imagine it will take him long to develop a rhythm with the receiving corps and move the ball on this porous Bears defense. The true test for Rodgers will be how he handles contact and it’s incumbent upon the Bears make sure that test is administered. Hit Rodgers early. Hit Rodgers often. If they give him a free pocket and room to roam they’ll be dissected.

WRAPPING IT UP IN A FEW SENTENCES

  • Aaron Rodgers playing means Bears will not be able to rely upon a timely Matt Flynn turnover to change the momentum or field position battle. Instead Trestman, Cutler and the bevy of offensive talent win the day with their most complete four-quarter performance of 2013.

FINAL SCORE

Chicago Bears 38, Green Bay Packers 31

    Rodgers? Dead!

    • Rodgers Dead

      this is going to be epic.
      I was just informed that I am forced to attend a baptism party on Sunday. The time? 3pm.
      I asked my beautiful bride why in THEE fuck anyone would schedule a baptism party during the greatest Bears/Packers game in at least a year. I was told that there are more important things in this life than the Bears vs Packers.
      I simply responded that in the old days of McCaskey that a comment like that would have gotten her beaten with a switch from the backyard.
      I then called the father that is hosting this party and called him a great dad and a huge pussy for allowing his wife to schedule this party during the Bears/Packers game. The game had better be on or else MB will have to text me the whole game play by play.

      • MB30SD

        Not sure I can watch.

        All you fucking jabronis that have been asking for rodgers just might get exactly what you’re asking for… and that immense douchebag might just shove his NFCN stealing dick down our defenseless throats.

        Shady, I will hate you if he single handedly beats us. God damn it.

        • Rodgers Dead

          he’s not making it out of that game in one piece.

          • MB30SD

            hoping so maing. I have zero faith in our D unfortunately.

            Hoping rodgers is really really rusty

          • Rodgers Dead

            That idiot Tucker better tell those D linemen to get their hands up and into passing lanes. I highly doubt McCarthy wants to drop Rodgers back to test out the D line. I see a lot of quick throws. Fortunately, Conte and Wright will be lined up 29yds off the ball so even the shortest slant will go for 25.

          • MB30SD

            sigh. fucking safeties.

            We’ve all seen just how much vadg means to that team. He basically is that entire team. I was more than happy to have flynn. All this talk of ‘I’m glad vadg is back’ sounds heroic, but fucken a… if there’s one dude in the nfl who can single handedly win a football game it’s that tool.

          • Rodgers Dead

            they will throw a ton of high percentage quick passes to get him going. The Bears need to do the same.
            I want to see that Forte Flip 9 on the first drive too. No running up the middle on first down shit. Fake that dumb run and pop pass that shit to Martellus ala Greg Olsen.
            I want Alshon and Marshall to each catch 2 short passes right away to get the juices flowing and we must score on the first drive.
            Make their DB’s fucking work hard and let them be all confident and aggressive….then hit them with double moves and physicality.
            This game will be Alshon’s revenge for last year.

          • MB30SD

            if I see forte constantly run between the B gaps I’ll fucking throw something through my 70″ aquos.

            I love the little pop-pitch out. get that mo fo in space maings.

          • CanadaBear

            That pitch to the left side is lethal. I’m not sure anyone has stopped it this year. When we were going for it on 4th down against the Brownies when the game was still in doubt, I called it to my brother-in-law before they ran it. Awesome!

          • bearsfantillend

            I once called them kicking an extra point with Gould. HEHEHE!

          • CanadaBear

            Gotta give up it for that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            My favorite play call this year…just ahead of the Alshon reverse.

      • CanadaBear

        There’s pussy whipped and there’s giving up. I’d say “Dad” has given up.

        • Rodgers Dead

          I think he’s still being punished for a “mistake” that he made a couple years ago.

          • MB30SD

            ouch. He’ll be punished for that for the rest of his marriage. Chicks are like elephants with that shit. Brutal.

          • Rodgers Dead

            lol, don’t fuck up financially and don’t stick your crank in another chicks mouth. I believe Billy Shakespeare said that shit…in so many words.

          • MB30SD

            indeed.

            I have a zero tolerance policy with cheating. Once I’m in a relationship, I’m all in. Loyalty is big for me maings. Cheaters are pussies.

          • Rodgers Dead

            lol, his was a financial mistake with long lasting repercussions.

          • MB30SD

            I assume it was a totally moronic move despite discussions beforehand?

            Otherwise, if it was just a dumb move that was essentially a mistake… what can you do. Everyone makes mistakes.

          • Rodgers Dead

            the first one

          • MB30SD

            dumb ass.

            Yeah, putting all of the little one’s college funds on a shellfish farm that basks in the warmed turbine-generated waters right offshore of the Fukashima plant probably wasn’t the best gamble.

          • CanadaBear

            I know Johnny has mentioned it before but it’s that type of shit that bankrupts these athletes. Along with a bunch of hangers-on and mooching family members.

          • CanadaBear

            100%. I was a dumbass in my first marriage. Did a lot of stupid shit (so did my ex). More my fault than hers. I’ve been on the straight and narrow ever since I got remarried.

          • CanadaBear

            Isn’t that the truth. My fave is they bring up some fucking thing you did 10 years ago that wasn’t a big deal even then. After that it’s all tears and how could you be such a heartless bastard, etc. Mostly you’re thinking, man I didn’t even do anything wrong!

          • MB30SD

            Chicks are brutal canada… they just can’t use logic or reason in those situations. It’s all emotion and zero logic… how in thee hell can you do anything with that.

            Answer: you can’t. You have to just decide if you’re willing to deal with that shit for the rest of your miserable life. Smfh

      • Rodgers Dead

        I was just informed that the game will be on. I then informed him that I’ll be drinking all of his good booze because i’ll have to watch that game with a bunch of little kids hanging on me like a jungle gym.

  • Rodgers Dead

    I never advocate the injuring of an opponent on purpose but for Rodgers to return at this point is folly. Peppers, if he has any fucking pride left in his huge, rich body, will fucking end that shit once and for all.
    RODGERS. FUCKING. DEAD.

    • Shady

      He’ll be going against some rookie LT out of Colorado, he needs to wear him like a fucking hat. Similar to the one in my profile picture perhaps.

      • MB30SD

        He ain’t done sheeeeit this year. Fucken a we better not lose this game to rodgers.

      • tobijohn

        And a half-Iranian left tackle at that…

        • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

          Hey, anyone know if that rook LT turned out OK? I know he started off strong, but don’t know if he’s done a serviceable job or not.

          Maybe our Cheesy Troll can fill us in on him.

          • TheBigCheesy

            Very impressive in pass protection… but I believe he received the worst run-blocking grade of all qualified OL for the season.

            I think he may have shut down Jared Allen and DeMarcus Ware though…

          • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

            Yeah, I know he started off like gang-busters in preseason, and a little bit at the reg season, but haven’t heard much since Rodgers went down.

            Ware has been injured all season though – that or he just sucks in that new system. Allen is getting old like Pepp. But it seems like the Pack found themselves a new LT.

            It won’t really matter in the run since anyone can push back our DEs and make our LBs whiff. I’m actually more scared of Starks than Lacy.

          • johnnywad

            No need to push back Shea. He’ll be standing next to the center trying to turn around. The tackle on that side can just go ahead and get busy on a linebacker.

          • tobijohn

            Here’s some info:

            http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1873694-david-bakhtiari-finally-starting-to-look-like-a-rookie-for-struggling-packers

            According to the article, he’s starting to back slide a bit

          • Cormonster

            Bahktiari or however you spell it has not looked good the latter half of the year. He’s given up sacks pressures, and holding penalties. He’s definitely regressed and Peppers needs to expose him.

          • tobijohn

            Is this a Peppers On week or OFF week? I’ve kind of lost track…

          • Sactowns#1

            Unfortunately our D line looks noting like the Lions.

    • SC Dave

      No. It will be Shea, but he’ll get the correct shoulder this time. Karma wheel coming ’round for the Charles Martin franchise. Although I like Aaron Rodgers, ending his career Sunday would even the score. Sort of. As the Bears would do it during an actual play.

    • TC

      I never advocate bad karma to any opponent on purpose either, but for you to say what you just said.
      I not only hope the Bears loss, but hope you break a critical part of your body so you will not be able to perform your livelihood for the rest of your life.

  • Viva

    Hub Arkush’s sources are fucking him…

    • MB30SD

      that dude is an idiot.

    • Rodgers Dead

      talk about a fall from grace. He’s turned into the Samuel L Jackson of radio. Any gig, anytime, anywhere, just pay me upfront.

      • gpldan

        And he’ll never cop to having been epically wrong on the air.

        • Rodgers Dead

          not once man, not once.

        • Rodgers Dead

          GP, you’re a car guy. I have a chance to pick up a BMW 850 for a couple grand. I was thinking of updating all of the soft fleshy parts, getting a badass paintjob on it, get the engine tuned up like a motherfucker and get the interior re-done.
          Do you know of any computer related problems that BMW’s have when the are elderly and have 120K+ on the odometer? Is there some sort of computer glitch or microchip issue that would make the car useless over time?

          • CanadaBear

            Johnny if it’s a good deal grab it. 120 K on a high end Beamer is like 10K on a regular car. Hell I’ve got over 210,000 miles on a ’99 Taurus Wagon. Down there it won’t be the computer that fucks you, it’s all that salt.

          • tobijohn

            A decent paint job alone is going to run more than $5K and unless you’re planning a DIY on the rest, you’re looking at another $5K. It’ll probably be closer to $15K when all is said and done. You’ll never get it back when you sell the car and you’ll need special insurance to cover what you’ve put into it otherwise, if it’s totaled, you’re SOOL…

          • MB30SD

            Never mind cars… I’ve been trying to sell the two rings I gave my ex.

            I’m getting offered 25-30% or what I paid. I’m getting raped. Brutal.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            I just let mine keep hers. It was a POS anyway.

          • MB30SD

            yeah, neither of mine are. they’re both pretty bad ass. oh well.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            I feel ya…just trade them to some schlub for the appropriate season tickets. Win win.

          • MB30SD

            they need to pay off my legal bills. As long as I can cover, I’m good. Close the chapter and move along.

          • gpldan

            That V12 is gonna be a mofo. Get ready for $200 oil changes.

            Car has a ton of electronics, windows that auto roll-up at high speed and other stuff. Lots of things to go wrong.

            Take a look here.

            guys, thanks for the input. This beauty has the makings of a love affair filled with resentment over expensive ongoing maintenance costs.
            I will be passing on this opportunity. it seems that a fairly under control coke habit would be more cost efficient.

          • NewBearInTown

            Funny, I’m trying to decide whether to save $130 bucks a month to buy the 2007 Honda Odyssey instead of the 2010. Funny what little kids do to your priorities.
            I do enjoy looking at a fancy car, but I can’t imagine spending the money some people put into those things. If I was rich, I suppose I could get into it, but ugh, so many other things to do first when you make your first million.

          • Rodgers Dead

            i’d go for the 2007 and dump that money into the ole stock portfolio

          • Rodgers Dead

            yeah, I hear you. I’ve got two little ones so I was just day dreaming a bit on how to have the cake, eat it too and not get fat doing it.

          • Sactowns#1

            If you want a project car go get yourself an older Chevy. Easy to work on, no smog prior to 73 (here in CA) parts are abundant and cheap and you’ll get out what you put into it. ie
            http://modesto.craigslist.org/cto/4169608495.html

            or if you really want a something to pin you to your seat http://sacramento.craigslist.org/cto/4256359937.html

          • Rodgers Dead

            The Corvette – Like strapping yourself onto a rocket raw dog style.
            There is something about the timeless 2001 740 iL frame and the 1990’s 850 frame though. I wish there was a way for me to buy them for 4K and put 2K to 4K worth of work into them then ride it out for at least 50K miles. I only drive 5k a year. My fear is that i’ll miss something and a huge cost will creep up and blow my whole plan out of the water.

          • Sactowns#1

            You can get that vette right there. Spend $2k on cosmettics and keep $2k asside for tires.

          • Rodgers Dead

            strategy. I like it.

  • Viva

    RODGERS. FUCKING. DEAD

    • Rodgers Dead

      Rodgers is dead
      Sincerely,
      Rodgers Dead

  • Whatwouldditkado

    I say bring it. Let’s beat them with Rodgers so they have no excuses. I just hope cutler doesn’t defer to Marshall at every instance. Seems when the pressure is on, he looks for Marshall and has a bit of tunnel vision. It’s a winnable game, but we as a fan base are not confident when it comes to besting the fudge. One question: does Cutler lose the fan base if he has an awful outing? I’m afraid this game is going to set the narrative for any future he could have here.

    • Rodgers Dead

      it’s Thursday of Packer week. There is a rule here that we can now only talk about how Rodgers is fucking dead. Time to push the chips into the center and show the fucking hand.
      Cutlers finest hour. Rodgers Fucking Dead.

      • Viva

        duh

    • SC Dave

      Cutler lost me last week. And I fear he’ll lose a lot more this week
      I have no confidence in Jay Cutler. And after last week, I don’t think his team does either.

      • Doc Nitty

        Cutler did shit last week, granted. But the team as a whole (defense) was way more responsible for that shit show. Seems like a weird game to be the last straw.

      • CanadaBear

        Don’t quite get how last week was a Cutler deal breaker for you Dave. Yeah he wasn’t great but it was a flashback to the bad old days of no OL. Not sure any QB’s would have looked very good under those circumstances. I’m clinging to the hope that Woodson and Matthews were responsible for most of Cutler’s issues with GB. Not sure it’s true but that’s the only way I can be positive going into this game.

        • ex-editor

          I keep thinking that Cutler’s not getting it. He continues to hold the ball too long. I don’t think that’s what Trestman wants. Look at, McCown — bing-bing-bing — he gets the ball quickly, takes 6-10 yards at a pop.
          Seems like Jay always wants to go long.

          Maybe someone has commented about this before, but it drives me crazy to watch him hold onto the ball so long.

          Sacks? Duh!

          • SC Dave

            This is a lot of it. Cutler does not seem to get it. Throw away a couple of balls on the early blitzes, or better *find someone open* (ALWAYS true on blitzes) and the other guys HAVE to stop blitzing. Hold the ball and the snowball builds.

  • MB30SD

    Personally, if rodgers is in, I’m really hoping lacy is out.

    Fuck me, we could use a break with our fucking turrible excuse for a defense.

    • Rodgers Dead

      to the tune of “White Christmas”

      I’m dreaming of some sacks and hurries
      Just like the ones I used to know
      When A gaps be blitzened,
      and drunk dads listen
      To hear clavicles snapping in the snow

      I’m dreaming of a Bears Victree
      With every Cutler post I write
      May the game be violent and sad
      For the puke and piss and their fans

      I’m dreaming of 40pt outing
      With every Alshon catch I see
      May JCut be accurate and true
      So I can tell the haters “fuck you”………

      • MB30SD

        very nice.

      • SC Dave

        I really, truly, hope you’re right. But…

    • Shady

      Packers could put anyone in the backfield and they would run for 200+, what’s nobody is talking about is Randall Cobb making a return to the field… FINE. BRING IT OWN CHEEEEEEESE! Cutler is going to slice up the cheddar come Sunday. 58-34 book it.

      • MB30SD

        I saw he’s still questionable? He’s going to be really rusty

  • Marcos Jaime

    I love how karma works. Rodgers is licking his chops right now. Rodgers will destroy the defense. Jay Cutler must answer to him once and for all. This is Jay Cutlers game

    • SC Dave

      Now or never.

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    RODGERS. FUCKING. DEAD

    • Rodgers Dead

      I want guys blown up on slants, gap integrity, sound tackling, DE’s staying home for the boot or the cut back, Rodgers under the shitty turf all day, quick hitting passes from Cutler, the occasional deep ball to our trees, no inside runs on first down, fake screens that turn into seam passes to TE, Earl Bennett on the goal line sneaking around, no jumbo package, spread the field WIDE, TE passes on first down, etc.
      Hester must go balls out or just take a knee and get us on the 20. No fucking starting at the 10. Blow up gunners looking up on punts to see where the ball is to pin us on the 2. Be a man.

  • johnnywad

    Devin’s replacement next year just signed with the Bears.
    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2013/12/26/bears-sign-wr-chris-williams/

    • Rodgers Dead

      I saw that. Young and hungry. I want Devin to go out on top so badly this year.

      • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

        I want Devin to break that record as a Bear. He should have already, but a bad holding call penalty. Hopefully, he breaks it this Sun. Then I can have closure with and move on.

        • tobijohn

          If not this Sunday, perhaps the following Saturday or Sunday…

          • CanadaBear

            The problem with him doing it the following week is it won’t go towards his record. They never seem to count that one in the SB (regular season only). Fuck it, let’s be greedy. Hopefully a KO and PR for TD’s this week!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • SC Dave

            And the week after… and after… and after

    • SC Dave

      Sure looks that way

    • CanadaBear

      I haven’t read anything. I’m glad the media are leaving him alone. That’s the last thing you need when you’re dealing with personal issues.

    • SC Dave

      🙁

  • gpldan

    Oh the weather outside is frightful
    And Rosendoom so spiteful
    And since we’ve got two scores to go
    Packers Blow! Packers Blow! Packers Blow!

    Oh, it doesn’t show signs of stopping
    And Aaron brought his collarbone for popping
    Since the Vegas line is turned way down low
    Packers Blow! Packers Blow! Packers Blow!

    The fire at Halas Hall is slowly dying
    To Peppers we are good-bye-ing
    But as long as Rodgers vag does flow
    Packers Blow! Packers Blow! Packers Blow!

    When we finally kiss it goodnight
    How I’ll hate the blog being lukewarm
    But if we believe in McCellin’s might
    The result we may transform!

    Oh, it doesn’t show signs of stopping
    And Aaron brought his collarbone for popping
    Since the Vegas line is turned way down low
    Packers Blow! Packers Blow! Packers Blow!

  • tobijohn

    I wonder if the Packers will be in mass protect mode the whole game. And if so, is that a good thing or a bad thing?

    • Rodgers Dead

      nope, they will just get that ball out quick and use Lacy and Kuhn in the run and pass game as quick outs.

    • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

      Why would any team NOT run on us? That’s what baffles me.

      If the Bears could rip off 8yd per run, they’d be crazy not to do it until it gets stopped.

      Clearly the Pack believe they can control the lines and run it down our throats with min exposure to Rodgers, and they’re right.

      Don’t know how – that D better take a long look in the mirror and find out if they’re actual NFL players, or bench riders.

      • MB30SD

        Never mind all the bravado being thrown around right now… I’m not escared to admit that I’m…… escared.

        • SC Dave

          No shit. I’d be less so were McCown starting. As I’ve said, I *want* Jay to succeed, but he is Mr. Fail vs Green Bay. Or is that Ms. Fail?

          • MB30SD

            I don’t care which of them is in… we’ve sucked against the packers for 3+ years. We need the monkey off our back, and I would have been as rosey about vadgers coming back as some of the other guys… if we had any semblance of a fucking defense.

            I would have been much happier with flynn vs. the thing formerly known as our defense. Just hoping either for vadgers to reinjure himself, or a fucking miracle.

            Sigh.

    • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

      1. 2006 SB because I could have done better than Grossman
      2. NFC Championship game because I could have done better than Cutler (HANIE out performed him, and I don’t care what anyone else says about that)
      3. FB or any part of the D on the 85 Bears because Sweetness and that D will make me look good.

      Actually, switch #1 and #3.

      • NewBearInTown

        In terms of pure fun playing on a team, it seems like last year’s Ravens defense was a “team of destiny” more than any other in recent memory. I hate Ray Lewis as much as the next guy, but those guys all played their hearts out for him.
        Similar comment regarding the Giants the year they ruined the Patriots perfect season.
        ’85 Bears would have been a lot of fun. Those guys were having a blast on their way to the dance.
        Didn’t realize it till I made the list, but all three of those are defensive wins.

    Rodgers the red nosed Packer
    Has a very scrawny dick
    and if you ever saw it,
    you would say it never grows

    All of the other packers
    use to laugh and call him names (Needle Dick)
    they never let poor rodgers
    join in any packer games

    Then one snowy game day eve
    Lombardi came to say
    Rodgers with your dick so small
    why don’t you try to throw the ball

    No light at the end of this tunnel, Fudge
    One collarbone broken, from but a little nudge

    I had to cancel my Christmas plans at my sisters house thanks to a snowstorm. I took one for the team, and gave the guys off who have kids and did the grunt work running a shovel for 9 hours.

    We rescheduled for Friday night and Saturday with the whole family. My sister lives just 90 miles from Chicago north of Milwaukee. What does all this mean?

    Fuck it, I’m going to the game on Sunday with my brother, cousin, and uncle. It’s Packers week for the division. Biggest game of the year, and I want to see some stomping of the Packers. I’m tired of losing to those asshats. 2-0 against the Packers this year. That’s all I want for Christmas. The rest is gravy.

    However, losing to Rodgers will make it that much more bitter. More bitter than the blackest tar Turk tea.

  • TheBigCheesy

    “If Cutler goes 28-34, 365 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INT in a 34-20 win…you’re telling me Bears fans won’t be behind a “pay the man” approach? ”

    Jay Cutler has thrown for 3+ TDs and 0 INTS only 5 times in 103 career games. He’s thrown over 365 yards only 3 times. He has never thrown for a completion percentage better than 82.3 (28/34).

    Can he do it? Yes. Is that even a reasonable hypothetical? Not really. About a month ago, one commenter asked “what happens if Josh McCown takes us all the way to the Super Bowl”?

    You’re better than that…

    No one is expecting Conte or Wright to do anything more than suit up and run in some general direction Sunday when they see other players running.

    Know what? I think they actually give a shit about all that. I think they rise to the occasion Sunday, and while I don’t think they’ll be superstars, I think they will make a difference.

    The Packers aren’t exactly known as a pro bowl populated defense this season either. Alshon and Brandon? Enjoy your runs, boys…you’re gonna have a lot of fun out there.

  • SC Dave

    Cutler? Alive?

    Hmmm….

  • SC Dave

    I’d feel sooo much better about this game if McCown is our starter.

    • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

      That’s why I used the analogy about using a condom (cutler) vs go ‘rawback’ (McCown).

      Gotta think long term, esp since the news about McCown retiring after this yr have cropped up.

      Start McCown this wk, say goodbye to Cutler, and we wouldn’t even be able to get anything for him either.

      Then McCown retires, and our starting ’14 QB would be…

      • MB30SD

        I believe the proper terminology is, “rawdog”

    Their tackles HAVE been a problem BUT, Packers HAVE been getting good work from the middle of their O-Line.

  • AlbertInTucson

    “Unexciting Statistical Analysis Warning! Green Bay is fourth worst in the league at covering kickoffs and seventh worst in the league at covering punts.”

    Counter Warning #1: This, of course, assumes they will HAVE to punt.

    Counter Warning #2: Beware of Micah Hyde, who damn near made the Steelers pay for STUPIDLY not just running down the clock and kicking a field goal as time expired last week. He could pose a big problem for the Bears’ so-so coverage units.

    Counter Warning #3: On paper, there shouldn’t be a lot of punts this Sunday. Bears better make first downs because the Masthay vs. Podlesh matchup is pretty depressing.

  • MB30SD
    • NewBearInTown

      Be thankful you don’t route for the Redskins or Raiders. No matter what happens in the playoffs, Emery will have everything he needs to rebuild the defense next year. You’ll see, we will be ranked substantially higher on that list within a season or two.

      • MB30SD

        I feel reasonably confident given emery’s last offseason NB. I’m hioping it wasn’t luck and that he’s going to prove me right this off season… if not I’ll have to eat canada’s crow dinner.

        It’s also tough seeing this year’s D be so abjectly terrible. If they were just middle of the pack, we’d be killing people. Oh well, I’ll just hold me breath and hope we beat the packers at home sunday… anything else beyond that is icing to me.

    Impending free agent C Alex Mack said he will give the Browns a chance to match any offer he receives.

    Mack is going to be one of the hotter commodities on the
    open market come March. Sunday will mark his 48th straight start, he’s
    been to one Pro Bowl and he’s graded out as PFF’s No. 1 center this
    season after finishing in the top-10 each of the previous two years.
    “Being in Cleveland is nice,” Mack said. “I have good friends on the
    team, I like the coaches, it’s a nice place.”

  • Trac

    Is this an indication of how good Cutler really is? Chicago went from a 4 1/2 point favorite to a 3 point dog after Rogers declared he’ll play. Hmm.

    • Rodgers Dead

      that is an indication of how good Rodgers is Trac.

      • Trac

        Can we have one?

        • Rodgers Dead

          Rodgers plays above average against the Bears. Rodgers has not seen action in 7 weeks. The Bears defense is riddled with injuries.
          Apparently Vegas feels that Rodgers is good for an extra TD vs what Flynn could do.
          My prediction is that we win unless we give up a back breaking screen pass to Starks or Lacy when we’ve got them on a key 2nd or 3rd down.

          • Trac

            I’m feeling trepidacious.

          • Rodgers Dead

            The boys know this is the moment of glory. Guys simply have to step up. Cutty, Forte, Alshon, BMarsh, Unicorn, Pearl, Skunk, Fat Briggsy, Pep, Dinner, Flatbread, nameless faceless practice squad DLinemen, Jennings, Pringles, Steltz Bomber, Weems, etc.
            The line have to play with intelligence and fucking anger. I want chippiness and pancake blocks. I want playing to the echo of the whistle and one on one battles on the edges.
            You just gotta believe. I don’t care about the injuries. We have skill at certain positions. The other guys that have no skill just have to turn it into a fucking street fight.
            Moments like this don’t happen to often. Like GP said, this is a turning point/tipping point. I feel like we come out on top and ride the lightning through the first round of the playoffs. After that, anything can happen. A guy could fall down.

            A lot of people saying the season is over, what’s the point of going to the playoffs, etc and it’s bullshit. You play to win the game. The only way to win a playoff game is to be in the playoffs. The only way to go to the playoffs is to win this game. That is what our boys must do.

            Nine times out of ten with McCown in this game we’d have a chance. I just expect Jay to shit the bed and hand them the division in our own house – it’s in his script. Hopefully it’s a shootout and we get lucky.

      • MB30SD

        Rugby 7s… similar to normal rugby but a faster game with more ball handeling (that’s what she said) and without the real scrums (“gathered around in a huddle”) or lineouts.

        It’s not my favorite form, but it’s fun to watch for a change. Kinda like a mix between normal rugby and aussie rules.

      • bearsfantillend

        its a kicker – according to the NFL they are not real football players because the are protected once the step on the field. Emery could have thought he was just hiring a high priced secretary.

      • Rodgers Dead

        he actually said he wasn’t “inclined” to talk about new deals before the end of the year. The media are the ones that changed the wording around to create drama which worked because they lied to Gould about what was said and he flipped out like a beeyatch. I’m glad it worked out though because he is really good.
        I wish he would have hit the redskins and vikings kicks though.

    I’m drawing blanks. I have absolutely no clue as to how this game is going to turn out. I’ve got nothing.

      • 4ever85 (AKA Butch Deadlift)

        On the flip-side, I would not be surprised if Hester calls a fair catch before the punt receives the snap.

        Or DeCamillis fake reversing every KR.

        Hester does however tend to turn it on at home and against the Vikes.

    We need to take a heavy dose of discipline if we are going to win a string of games and shock the world. No pre snap penalties, no missed assignments, no bad decisions. We are in the playoffs to make the playoffs. When we beat the Packers tomorrow, the team that will present more mismatches in the playoffs will wear navy and burnt orange.

    • Trac

      If we can get our D to somehow achieve middle of the road results, we there!

      • tobijohn

        Agreed but why now when they really haven’t all year? One slim hope is that the D has been measurably better at home than on the road. However, even if the D plays only half as bad as they did last week, I think we’re still doomed. Call me paranoid but I also think the secret NFL illuminati wants a Packers victory and the refs have been so instructed…

    • johnnywad

      Definitely when the Bears have the ball, but …….Every skill player on the opponent’s roster is a mismatch for any player onthe Bears defense, with the exception of Tim Jennings on the opponent’s #2 receiver. I just don’t see any defensive player outside of him presenting much threat right now. That said, I do believe the Bears position by position on offense would be a nightmare to game plan against for any defense. Even the Seahawks.

    Looking over the Pro Bowl rosters. Disappointed Jeffery was not select. got to be one of the biggest snubs this year!!!

    • Trac

      Alshon was right on the cusp I think. Take away some of his drops and he’s right there. Glad to know we missed the opportunity to trade Hester when he was a pro bowler. How long has it been since we haven’t had a defensive player selected?

      • tobijohn

        2004 was the last year a Bears defensive player wasn’t chosen…

            I took a breather from following the Bears while in NYC 92-99 so my collective memory does not include those wretched defensive teams. So yeah, I’ve always been used to an A+/B- Bears defense. This year is like the Bizarro world for me…

        • NewBearInTown

          Part of it is Lance Briggs will not make another pro bowl even if he plays the best season of his life next year. The 4-3 outside linebacker has disappeared from fan’s view because of all the 3-4 pass rushers racking up sacks.

      • bearsfantillend

        on all websites i have looked at, Jeffery had fewer drops than any receiver selected.

        • Irish Sweetness

          I’d wager Brandon had more .. .Alshon’s hands were like glue in recent times.

          • bearsfantillend

            Alshon is credited with 4 drops, while Brandon has 10.

      I know it would be a marketing faux pas on the part of the NFL to not include fans in the voting but I’d at least like to see who just the players and coaches selected. I think that’s a much more legitimate indication….

      • Still a Doug Plank Fan

        Yeah man. Would be great, but god, that would ramp up the trash talk to new decibels if players knew who voted for (or not for) whom….baby, that would feed the gaping maw of tabloid-esque NFL writers for hours – what a frenzy!

        • tobijohn

          No need to show who voted for who, just the totals…

          • Still a Doug Plank Fan

            Was just thinking out loud.

          • Still a Doug Plank Fan

            Probably wrong, but it seems like those totals have been revealed in years past.

    • SC Dave

      The Pro Bowl is a popularity contest and deserving players are snubbed every year in favor of “incumbents”.

    • NewBearInTown

      Wide receiver: Antonio Brown, Steelers; Dez Bryant, Cowboys; Josh Gordon, Browns; A.J. Green, Bengals; Andre Johnson, Texans; Calvin Johnson, Lions; Brandon Marshall, Bears; Demaryius Thomas, Broncos.
      That’s the list. Who do you take off to give Alshon a spot? I guess Demaryius Thomas, but he’s had a great year with Manning throwing to him. Maybe Andre Johnson? He’s a great player, but his team has been terrible this year.

      First haze: Rodgers Dead!

  • gpldan

    Should New Regulations be forgot,
    and never thought upon;
    The lame of cheap shots extinguished,
    and fully past and gone:
    Is thy Bears Heart now grown so cold,
    that Packer hating Breast of thine;
    That thou canst never once reflect
    On Old Long whines.

      It can’t be just left up to the offense. Bad things happen to one dimensional teams,

    Such a funny show. Favorite quote of the episode.

    Jesse Palmer: “Tommy Rees is a heck of a quarterback.”

    Jeff Hughes: “False.”

    100% with you here Jeff. I’ve mentioned it on this here blog. Dude is so weak. What a puss of a QB. Dude had 1 fucking rushing yards TOTAL all year. one. His arm is like a wet noodle.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Tommy Rees? Didn’t he get the ND starting job pretty much by default?

      • johnnywad

        Yes. The actual starting quarterback cheated on something in some way at ND and had to spend the fall at another institution. He’s re-enrolled and will likely start next fall.

    • johnnywad

      Stupid too. Got drunk, punched a cop and tried to outrun them on foot. Or the other way around. Either way. Fuckin dumb. Lost his starting job over it but got it back because his replacement is dumber. He cheated in class. They frown on that at ND. Well at least once it’s public knowledge. And these guys are following up Brady Quinn and Jimmy Clausen. A real QB factory there in South Bend.

      • MB30SD

        I can’t get past the fact that when he throws a “bomb” it has to take such a steep angle to get as far as possible that it looks like a punt… and then it only goes like 40 yards.

        Kid is just turrible… never mind any of that other shit.

  • bearsfantillend

    Fiammetta got an extension, today

    • NewBearInTown

      Run game has been solid this year, so it makes sense. Would have preferred if Emery had realized Fullback is a position worth filling back when Clutts was on the team. But still a good decision.

      • tobijohn

        I’m pretty sure Clutts is available, not that it matters now…

  • AlbertInTucson

    Last Notre Dame QB who was any good as a pro?

    Steve Beuerlein?

    • Viva

      Theisman and Montana

      • AlbertInTucson

        They both precede Beuerlein.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Most of them wind up like Brady Quinn, Jimmy Clausen, Ron Powlus (The Wunderkind who was supposed to win 2 or 3 Heismans) or , ugh, Rick Mirer.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I’d forgotten that the Raiders’, Daryl “The Mad Bomber” Lamonica came out of Notre Dame.

        • AlbertInTucson

          Did some checking. It WAS Beuerlein.

  • MB30SD

    fuck. the hits keep coming. Well, some of you are going to get your wish tomorrow… that packers team is almost ful strength at this point.

    fuck.

    • AlbertInTucson

      I think it’s more important to note that Clay Matthews will still be a spectator.

      • MB30SD

        meh, when i’v watched them play this year he hasn’t been all that spectacular.

        besides, I’m much more worried about our D trying to contain their O stars instead of the other way around.

        • AlbertInTucson

          He was ALWAYS happy to show up against the Bears. Best way to contain their O is to keep ’em off the field and playing from behind.

    • Rodgers Dead

      Cobb is one hit to the injury and gone. Same with Rodgers. Remember how Detroit kept dinging Cutler when they knew his ankle and groin were fucked? Just little things to make him use the injured body part.
      If Rodgers isn’t hit on every pass attempt i’ll be disappointed.

      • johnnywad

        You were right and I was WAY wrong last week. Briggs was far from fresh or ready to go. What the hell did he do with the down time? Looked like a fat, slow, old man.

        • Rodgers Dead

          burritos, , brews, blowjobs and bbq.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            When you can afford disposable Lambos, imagine the quality and quantity of those that you’re getting.

      • MB30SD

        gotta get within 5 yards of him to touch him.

    • tobijohn

      If Rogers hadn’t been out for as long as he had and with the state of the defense, I’m pretty sure the Bears would have been eliminated in any playoff scenario weeks ago. Certainly the Eagles loss would have definitely done it. Next year, we will be burying teams but for the rest of this season, everything going forward is gravy….

      • MB30SD

        we blew it with the eagles. just simply blew it.

        This game is everything to me. Fuck the packers and fuck vadgers. I want really badly to run them this year. If vadgers gets hurt again, I’ll be fine with that.

        Everything beyond a win this weekend it immaterial to me and is pure gravy.

  • Rodgers Dead

    The moment of truth approaches. This game is the definition of football.
    Rodgers….must die.

    • Trac

      A fan doesn’t hope for anything less than a chance to make the playoffs in week 17. From that standpoint, this truly is a blessing. Both teams are blessed, only one will be redeemed. He he.

  • bearsfantillend

    “A wise man once told me, ‘Stats are for losers and baseball players,’” McClellin said. “I could give a crap about that.”

    I think McClellin should find a new wise man to talk to because stats are also for NFL Players that keep their jobs. This is the kind of crap a fucking loser that can’t produce says.

    • tobijohn

      I’m no judge of talent but it looks like Shea is turning out to be a fairly decent low 3rd or high 4th round pick…

  • Trac

    Game on.
