Let us know what you think…and GO PACK!!!
Well, Friday’s injury report was a good news/bad news scenario. The good news is that Aaron Rodgers, Datone Jones, Sam Shields, and Morgan Burnett are all listed as PROBABLE, which means “there is a 75% chance” that they will play. In official coach-speak, that means they’re gonna go.
On the bad side of things, Kevin Dorsey is listed as OUT with a foot injury. This hurts our depth at wide receiver but should not be of major concern. But there are two names on the injury report that Packers fans do not yet have any answers about. And in a game where the Packers would love to minimize the amount of running Aaron Rodgers has to do, these are the last two names they want to be obscured with uncertainty. Continue reading
When the Bears come to Lambeau Field Sunday night for their 190th meeting with the Packers, it’s gonna be cold, possibly snowing…perfect Packers/Bears football weather. And if Eddie Lacy can continue to perform running the ball and catching out of the backfield, the stage will be set for Aaron Rodgers to light up the Bears. The last time these two teams met, the Packers didn’t punt once. But here’s the catch. Continue reading
Since the Packers and Bears last met in Week 4, the two teams have trended in dramatically different directions – the Bears dropped three of their next four while the Packers experienced defeat just once. The Bears stole a win from the Packers in last year’s meeting at Lambeau Field when both teams were missing their starting quarterbacks for three-plus quarters. Chicago’s 2013 victory over Green Bay was their first since Week 3 of 2010, when Jay Cutler recorded his only career win over the Packers to-date.
Nursing a hamstring injury over the bye week, Aaron Rodgers is expected to be healthy for Sunday’s game. Other than a down night against New Orleans in Week 8, Rodgers has been red hot since his last meeting with Chicago. Part of the success can be attributed to stellar protection from his offensive line, which could be missing both starting guards on Sunday. The Packers’ explosive passing game has historically caused problems for the Bears and figures to do the same on Sunday as Rodgers faces the league’s 23rd-ranked pass defense.
With a log-jam of 3 loss teams, the NFL has become a toss-up in the second half of the season. Has this not been one of the most bizzare seasons in a long time? One week, the Broncos look unbeatable, the next, they get trucked by the Pats. Before the season began, the Bears were one of the darlings…with Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall billed as the best tandem in the league. The dolphis…yes, I said the Dolphins destroy the Chargers 37-0. The Packers lose big in the opener so the Seahawks who have since fallen apart, drop a game to the Lions, and then go on a tear…only to be drubbed by the Saints before the bye week, wuh?
It’s exciting…but I must say I would prefer that the Packers had beat the Lions and then took care of business against the Saints going into the bye to be all alone and boring on top of the NFC North. Instead, we await the Bears at Lambeau with every game on the docket from here on out feeling like a must-win. Continue reading
