  • Bears Packers

    The season opener of Thursday Night Football was a bit letdown. The Bears Packers games are usually solid, not great, but this was still an ugly game.

    The Bears offensive line isn't there, but the offensive coordinator needs to call quicker plays to throw instead of waiting so long and then scrambling or getting sacked.

    Aaron Rodgers did not have a great game either. But the Bears proved tonight why I still don't expect them to be a playoff team.moreless
  • Nice to Have Thursday Night Football Back

    This wasn't a very good game - at least not from the point of the outcome being in doubt. All four guys picked Green Bay to win and I did too. I felt that there was no way that the Packers were going to start 0-2, at home no less.

    Green Bay will be fine and I expect Chicago will eventually too, although Jay Cutler might end up being the worse for wear. The Bears have played two weak opponents and tonight they looked really bad. I do think both these teams will end up in the playoffs.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Chicago Linebacker Brian Urlacher: Maybe we're not as good as we thought we were. We've got a long ways to go, that's obvious. We didn't play like we did last week. Maybe Green Bay's just that good, I don't know. We just didn't play well and they played good enough to do what they did to us.

    • Chicago Quarterback Jay Cutler: I care about this. This isn't a hobby for me. I am not doing this for my health. I am trying to win football games and get first downs. When we're not doing the little things or not doing things the right way consistently, I'm going to say something. If they want a quarterback that doesn't care, they can get somebody else. I'm not going to just walk to the sideline and act like everything's OK. It's just not going to happen.

    • (on sacking Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler seven times)
      Green Bay Linebacker Clay Matthews: I think the statistics speak for themselves. It's always good when you get after the quarterback, get him off his rhythm and have him throw some balls up there that I'm sure he wouldn't want, or wants back.

    • Green Bay Quarterback Aaron Rodgers: Inside the facility, there wasn't any panic. Outside, I think people were worried if we lose to Chicago, you're kind of putting yourself behind the eight ball a little bit. Good win for us. We're 1-1. Again, it's one game. We need to get better on offense; defense played incredible.
