Captain Woloshuk: Duty Called Him From The Birth Of His Baby

When I think of duty, I think of what we are told to “do”. Some action that society, morality, or IMG_0931some person in a superior position commands us to perform. Today I learned that buzzing in the background of every action that duty requires are all the other things we might want to be doing, places we may wish to be…people we wish to see. For every decision a service member makes to do their duty, there are many other dutiful things that they forsake in service of our country. And some of those things buzzing in the background of a dutiful service member are the people they love, who support them, and carry on without their immediate help, struggle through the difficulties life brings, and hope and pray to see their loved ones home safe and sound. I believe that these family members risk “everything” for their country too because a loved one can truly be “everything” to a young family. And that is what this story is about: Continue reading

What We Learned Against the Bears

5052aa0d8896b.preview-620It’s safe to say that the 2014 NFC North title is a two-team race. On Sunday night, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers routed their division rivals in prime time, delivering one of the most lopsided defeats in the two teams’ rivalry and effectively shutting the door on Chicago’s playoff hopes.

Completing their most dominant sweep of the Bears under Mike McCarthy was undoubtedly a sweet feeling for the Packers. But the ‘moral victory’ of fundamentally sound football in all facets of the game was what reinforced this team’s status as a contender in the NFC.

Moving Matthews to ILB

It gave the Packers the element of surprise and played a big part in the Pack getting off to a fast start… or, at least, keeping the Bears from getting a fast start of their own. Continue reading

PM Quickslant: More Praise for John Kuhn

John KuhnI’m having a blast re-watching that game against the Bears from last night. It’s like watching the longest highlight reel around. Even though there are tons of great plays to watch, one of the things that, once again, is standing out to me is the many ways John Kuhn makes an impact in the game. Continue reading

Post-Game R&R With Jeff

Tell the truth, How many of you thought this game was going to be a close one?Aaron Rodgers Stats
I, for one, figured the Bears would put up a fight to try and stay in the race for the post season. Before the game started, the Packers sat down Lattimore to activate Brad Jones, I thought “Well, there goes the defense at ILB and Forte is going to have a field day running up the middle.” But low and behold Capers pulled out another mind blowing move by placing Clay Matthews at ILB, It was a look the Bears offense was not prepared for and never did figure out how to attack. While the final score was 55-14, this game was over after Rodgers threw his third TD. He could have sat out the rest of the game and the defense along with special teams would have won with their performance this game!
