It's Packer Week! Week 6 Gameday Thread


Recommended Posts

I suspect we lose today but because we can't keep up with the scoring...how we lose these type of games though will be telling...are we in it late or do we get blown out? Do we have something to build off or was it a dumpster fire? The win loss record at the end of this year shouldn't matter because we will beat poor teams a lose to good ones...it's do we see real progression or change against those best teams that matters...

In terms of Fields I want to see us continue to let him be under centre as much as possible...plenty of play action...plenty of levelled routes to one side of the field then let his natural talent show out...if he can go again for over 200 yards with a TD or two and no INTs it will have been a successful day.

I just bet a packer fan at work $10 that the bears will win lol. I don’t think I’ve ever given $10 away so willy nilly. 
 

im going to tell her my bet was 18-1 odds tho so if the bears win she owes me $180

Surprised that Tonga is inactive and I completely missed that Burns was playing for the Bears this season.

Against Rodgers you need as many pass rushers as possible out there.

I don't know, man. I'm not impressed with the Packers' offensive line. And the Bears have the best pass rush in the league (so far, anyway). 

If they can get to Rodgers, they might be able to keep it close it enough to win it in the fourth. (Kind of like the Tampa Bay game last year.)

Why would Tonga be inactive? That's weird. I wonder if they're worried about penalties?

I guess if you don't want to push the interior of the OL back at all when Goldman needs a break it makes sense, but from his position it's not necessarily about rushing the passer.

My point is the "NT" spot isn't really a thing today...we will be in a 4-2-5 nickle pretty much so all day...you need to generate pass rush with those 4 guys only as much as possible...that is just not Tonga's game.

I guess you didn't watch last week then when the Bears played a lot of 2 down DL with Goldman and Tonga rotating. And you mention Tongas game not rushing the passer, well that isn't Goldman either.

Were we playing the Packers last week? Exactly.

Exactly, we were playing a team that has been playing better offensively than the Packers. But hey they aren't the Packers, I guess we will just disagree in that I think it's best to have the best players available to play.

Tonga looks like he's going to be a much better pass rusher than Goldman. He may never be as good of an all-around player as Goldman, but we've seen some pass rush ability from Tonga already.

The Raiders have a completely different blocking scheme and ethos than the Packers do..you tailor your DL to being able to do different things against different teams when you have the personnel to do so.
