Week 17: Packers at Bares


Recommended Posts

Man I hope this isn't a let down game. I could totally see the Bears upsetting the Packers and the Packers dropping to the 3 seed. I don't care if the Packers win 2-0 on a game winning safety, as long as they win.

Hopefully Pettine could put together a stretch of great defensive football leading to the SB, but if that does happen, he'll probably have a job next season.

Packers - 2

Bears - 0

Nah. Def win this game, but Seattle is totally beatable. 

I agree, Seattle doesn't scare me at all. And for some reason all the announcers are all giddy over how the Seahawks defense has improved, hmmmm...

Last 5 games: Eagles, Giants, Jets, Washington, and the Rams.

Other than the Rams, who has a decent offense but hasn't been playing the best, their defense has played the bottom of the barrel. Defenses will look good against sub par offenses.

I think we'll win, Rodgers really wants that home field advantage for once. But damn that sucks, I always thought h2h counted, so is that only for division?

H2h doesnt matter in a 3 way tie unless you have beaten them both

Think the rest of the NFC would like to have a say on the matter?....ESPN is giving the Packers an 80% chance of beating Chicago (and getting #1 seed) and 36% chance of winning the NFC and getting to the SB...

yes. they would like to.

Im going to consider this playoff game #1 for us. Way too much riding on it to treat this like a usual bears game. After what we just did to Tennessee, we have to pick up where we left off for the sake of some consistency going into the actual postseason. 

Of course the Bears' D is a lot better than the Titans' D.  TN's O is better than Chicago's O.

Bears D with Hicks could be much tougher than earlier.  Our run game did very well up the middle in that one, but it could be much more difficult.

Our pass protection also did very well, I don't recall much pressure or blitzing.  Unclear whether that might change?  

I really want the offense to keep moving and scoring, and keep the pressure on Chicago.  Keep scoring if the Packers can get a lead.  And hope maybe Mitch tries to do a little too much and risk a throw trying to keep up or catch up, and maybe you get the INT that flips a tight game into a more comfortable one?

Weather forecast for this Sunday at Soldier Field: sunny, 36 degrees, 10mph winds.

With high  of 36°It should be below 32° by half once the sun is down. That’s not bad for either team and 10mph wind is nothing for Soldier so both teams should be able to air it out. I give a slight edge to AR in that respect.

I think the Packers should utilize the same game plan they did the other night.  You want to stuff the run and make Trubisky beat you with his arm.  My guess is that he won't be up to the challenge.  The Packers OLB's did a nice job of setting the edge and then playing off blocks.  Mitch is gonna be rolling out a lot .. like to run, and like to throw on the run.  If you can keep him in the pocket he's not very good at all.  Jaire on Robinson for sure .. try to limit that guy as much as possible.  Mooney is a guy to watch .. we will have to pay him some attention.  If the Bears make it to the redzone Mitch will be looking for for our old friend Graham and rookie TE Kmet.  Packers are going to win in a romp.
