  2 years ago     98 Views     4 Comments  

In a game in which the Packers had two enemies to deal with...the Bears' defense and the refs, a timely play by a veteran defender made the difference. With the Bears down by 8 but with plenty of time for a game-tying drive, Jay Cutler, who had had a pedestrian game up to this point, stepped up and threw...only to have his pass intercepted by Clay Matthews. Matthews made a great play on the ball and also had a great return which was (of course) called back by penalty. (more…)

Breaking Down Week 1 vs. the Bears

The NFC title game loss must still be fresh in Mike McCarthy’s mind: the head coach kicked off Week 1 with some uncharacteristic aggression toward the division-rival Bears. While some of this confidence may be warranted, a number of factors should keep the game tight into the second half. The injury bug bit Green Bay early this season as Jordy Nelson was lost for the year with a torn ACL and the better half of the O-line was sidelined throughout August. One could argue that the Packers come into Week 1 a touch unprepared, with Aaron Rodgers not having played…

It is game week and the 2015 season begins with the longest standing rivalry in the League. The Chicago Bears hope to knock off a Nelson-less Packers team in Chicago while the Packers wish to get the away win so that they can develop young players and get James Jones re-acclimated without dropping a divisional rivalry that they have to play on the road. The stakes for this game are much higher than one would expect as a loss here could open the door to a divisional deficit as either the Vikings or the Lions seem capable of taking two…

The Domino Effect: Did Thompson Make the Right Move?

  2 years ago     91 Views     4 Comments  

With the opener against Da Bears right around the corner Ted Thompson did something he is strongly against by bringing in a veteran free agent (James Jones) to fill a position otherwise occupied by their young developmental players. With Jordy Nelson going down for the season it looked like Cobb and Adams would step into the spotlight and Myles White, Jeff Janis and Ty Montgomery would follow suit in being the next man up but with the signing of Jones that all changed.
