Wow. The refs just fucked the Bears on that drive. Tracy Porter barely touches the receiver and it’s an illegal play? The Packers score right after. On that touchdown run, it appears Lacy tossed the ball up right before he crossed the line and it stands.
On a night when NBC spent every 15 minutes kissing Brett Farve’s ass and every other graphic showing the Bear’s futility in this series (only the oldest rivalry in the NFL, no big deal), it was really satisfying watching the bears defense finally putting the cuffs on ol’ Discount Double Check. Even sweeter doing it on the night when the Packers retired Farve’s number.
Bears win! Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

Every 15 minutes? That’s being generous. I thought it was every five seconds. Seeing Favre really still stings for me. I’ve mentioned it on this site numerous times throughout the years. This asshole tormented my childhood. Along with the beating the Bears and beating them badly, I grew up just south of the Wisconsin border, it was 60/40-50/50 Bears-Packers for fans. Imagined getting teased for continuing to wear Bears’ paraphernalia by all of the kids.
Our friend, MadCityMac had a story about Favre when he was in Madison about 20 years ago. Mark Chmura was with him and it pretty much shows what kind of an asshole Favre was as a person.
