We have a Bears fan at work ... I'm really hoping for a blow out in the Packers favor.

We're 8-1 against the bears since 2009 or something, but the packers and the bears always play close, but I believe we'll stomp em. 38-16 pack.

It seems like the last 2 weeks we've gotten better with Jennings and Sheilds coming back. Now, Matthews and Woodson... Wow we could be a force to be reconed with.

They won't have Urlacher.

And they WILL have Cutler.

We've been playing without some guys.

Clay, Woody, CJ, Jordy.

Now we get those guys back. Meanwhile, the Bares are losing Turdlicker.

So there's that.

I get that, and I miss the aerial circus we had going last year too. However, with our injuries on both of our lines, and the injury to Nelson, I'll take a smash mouth, grind it out run attack on them all day if we can. We'll pop some long throws as a result, and save our D. I don't want to see those guys worn out.

We did that until someone stopped it.

Now we gotta do something else, and when they stop THAT, we can do other shit, such as what was working before.

What ever wins us games, and honestly, Rodgers does enough to win us games. I think that loss to giants helped us a bit. Only thing that's holding us back in reality is our pass rush. Our secondary is getting better and better. I really think that this is the most depth we had in years. Our run defense is inconsistant but as long as we can combat that with our own and hold them off in the second half we'll be good there too.

So main things we need to fix heading to the post-season:

1. Pass Rush
2. Protecting Aaron Rodgers
and 3. Pass the ball down field

If we can sure up those things our road to another super bowl will be smooth sailing.

One of the safest sports bets is the Packers/Bears game.

Always bet the under.

I think the Packers win 16 - 13.

Never ever underestimate the Bears.

Sun Times Article

"The Bears likely will need Cutler at his best for the last three games of the season.

After losing for the fourth time in five games, the Bears (8-5) have a perilous grip on their playoff fate.

A loss to the Packers not only would clinch the NFC North title for Green Bay, but it likely will put the Bears at risk of missing out on the postseason even if they win their last two games to finish 10-6.

But it remains to be seen if Cutler will make it to the finish. The Bears’ franchise quarterback suffered an injury for the third time this season and sixth time in his four seasons with the Bears.

The physical punishment of four years with the Bears — not only 141 sacks but his own penchant for putting himself at risk when he leaves the pocket — might be catching up to Cutler."

Frustrated Bears

"The Bears say they feel confident, but also that the frustrations are mounting.

“Ultimately, we have to come out and play better,” safety Chris Conte said. “As a team, we have to go back to practice, work hard, be angry and come back and take it out on Green Bay.”

Win and we've won the Division and a home game in the playoffs.

We've been winning ugly but the word "Winning" is all that matters.

With CMIII and Woody and Jordy back we'll be OK.

The OL despite all its injuries is getting the running game going even with us being down to our 3rd and 4th string backs.

We will win out and challenge for a bye week.

Having our defense catch balls that hit them in the hands = Victory if the offense can protect the ball and move the ball semi-effectively. Cutler always throws us a bunch of bones, we just need to catch them.

It seems to me I was hearing alot about wanting to run the ball better and be more balanced and now that they are getting that people want the big play offense back. C'mon guys. You don't get it both ways.
Teams have chosen to take the big play offense away with two safeties playing deep. We see it every week now. So the alternative is to run the ball and fortunately that has been going well. This does not, however, provide an opportunity to put up big numbers.

It's all about the playoffs now and if we secure home field the run game becomes a huge part of being able to win. If we can run as effectively or nearly as well as our opponents Rodgers will take care of the rest.

Besides, how many games have we had the whole receiving group on the field together? Not many. So with Jordy back and Jennings playing again I can see Rodgers really putting the ball all over the place again. Something we haven't seen much of this year.

Quote:
The Chicago Bears placed kicker Robbie Gould on the injured reserve list with a season-ending calf muscle injury Tuesday and signed veteran kicker Olindo Mare.

Mare won a tryout Tuesday morning at Halas Hall, which included Billy Cundiff and Neil Rackers. All three kickers performed well, according to a source.

Mare, 39, kicked for the Carolina Panthers last season. He also has played for the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints and spent 10 seasons with the Miami Dolphins. Mare has made 81.2 percent of his field goal attempts in his career and was 22-for-28 last season, when he also kicked 53 touchbacks for the Panthers.


Tribune

more moves

Quote:
Gould wasn’t the only player to land on injured reserve. Safety Craig Steltz (chest) and cornerback Sherrick McManis (knee) were also placed on IR, dealing a blow to special teams depth. The Bears promoted wide receiver Joe Anderson from the practice squad to the 53-man roster and signed linebacker Jerry Franklin off the practice squad of the Dallas Cowboys.


edit
rotoworld's take on it.



Quote:
Steltz was a backup safety and the team's seventh defensive back while McManis was purely a special teamer. Both players are under contract at a cheap rate for the 2013 season. Dec 11 - 2:08 PM



roto
Quote:

Mare, who will be 40 in June, beat out Neil Rackers and Billy Cundiff at a Tuesday tryout. He replaces Robbie Gould, who pulled a calf muscle while warming up for last week's game against the Vikings. Mare was last seen in Carolina during training camp, where he lost the placekicking gig to Justin Medlock. Mare went just 6-of-9 on field goals from 30-39 yards out with the Panthers in 2011, costing them at least two wins. Dec 11 - 1:21 PM

Agreed. And, this team is not complaining. Like Mike McCarthy said, "throw the stats out the door". Our passing game will improve heading to the playoffs now that we found a spark in the running game. Teams will start bringing safties down in the box, and those plays will be there.

Unless one's team is the New England Patriots. They have been able to run the ball well and still have many big plays. It's certainly possible, as a good running game can set up huge play action passes, which Aaron Rodgers loves (probably a little too much, as I feel he isn't patient enough at times).
