Well, that was something!
- What a performance by Jay Cutler. White whale captured. He was far and away the best player on the field last night.
- Officiating debacle continues. The illegal contact on Tracy Porter gifted the Packers points. The tripping on Matt Slauson was one of the stupidest calls I’ve seen in years. Something has to be done. And soon. The experience of watching these games is being seriously hurt.
- It can’t be understated what Fox & Fangio are achieving with this defense. Look at the talent level.
- Jeremy Langford has to catch the ball. But he certainly looks far more explosive than Forte.
- Tracy Porter is going to be on this team in 2016.
- Pat O’Donnell is a huge disappointment.
- Sacks by Lamarr Houston and Willie Young. This defense will be a force the rest of the season if this continues.
- I was an advocate for trading Young at the deadline but he looked comfortable at outside linebacker last night. His work on the game’s first play – sticking on the flat route and then releasing to the QB – was textbook.
- Hey Pernell McPhee. Wait for the snap.
- But remember kids. The Packers won’t miss Jordy Nelson.
- Marc Mariani had a nice day catching the ball.
- Bears are a different team with Alshon Jeffery on the field.
Long day yesterday. Will be rewatching the game this afternoon so stay tuned to the Twitter feed for more thoughts. But what a Bears victory. Now they face San Francisco at home in 11 days to get to .500.
