Revenge: Bears 24 Packers 17


I wish it wasn’t this close, but wow. The Bears actually beat the Packers outright. No awful calls by referees like in past years. No seriously injured playmakers. The Bears finally beat this team lead by Aaron Rodgers. It appeared that the Packers were going to make yet, another comeback. Thankfully, that didn’t happen.

Matt Nagy pulled his idiotic tricks and it nearly cost this team the game. With the Vikings and Redskins both winning, the Bears would have not clinched a playoff spot this week had they lost. That would not have been fun going into the final two weeks of the season. This shit needs to get cleaned up.

Eddie Jackson rolled his ankle on Rodgers first interception ever. Fuck. Let’s just pray it’s a rolled ankle. This gives him three weeks to rest it.

This game gave me flashbacks of five years ago when Rodgers threw the game-winning touchdown to a wide-open Randall Cobb in the last minute to win the division against the Bears during the final game of the regular season. That stung me and it will still continue to. But, this one felt great.

We’ve been waiting eight years for a return to the playoffs. We’ve been waiting 12 years for the Bears to get back to the Super Bowl. And some of us have been waiting our entire lives to see the Bears win the Super Bowl. The first mission is done. The other two have yet to be accomplished this year. We’ll see what happens.

For now, the Bears head to San Francisco to try to stay in the third spot of the NFC standings.

    1) God alone knows why Ryan Pace drafted Trubisky; if he drafted Trubs thinking he was gonna get 300 yd/4 TD games week-in and week-out, I think he’s betting on the wrong horse.

    2) That being said, he did throw two TDs and the Bears rushed for a third.

    3) That 17 points the Packers put up is deceptive; “Discount Double Check” only got a rushing TD and a two point conversion out of this offense. The other nine points: FGs. $ sacks and an INT: way to keep the Packers out of the end zone, fellas.

    4) Eight years. OMFG, that’s the last three years of Lovie, two of Trestamn, and John Fox’s mail-it-in of a coaching job. Not as bad as some franchises (hello Buffalo and Cleveland), but somebody sound the revile for the McCaskeys already!!!

    5) Bears need to tighten up the ship for next week, the 49ers are a trap game waiting to happen.

    The Eagles upset the Rams. The Bears still have an outside chance of getting a first-round bye. They can win out and have either the Saints or Rams lose one more game. Or, if they win one of the two games remaining and one of those teams loses both games, that works too. I know that won’t be easy, but it’s still possible.

    Whatever happens, the Bears need to finish the job the next two weeks.

    49ers are playing for next year’s jobs. Vikings may still be in the wild card chase. NEVER gift a division rival a playoff berth…especially one that has more playoff experience than yours.

    Go, Bears, dammit!

    Back to back games where two opposing good/great QBs were held TD-less. Great defense!

    I think one thing the bears need to do is get adam shaheen going big time. Like how the Pats used to use gronk and aaron Hernandez at the same time. It will also help in the running game to have the multiple tight ends out there.

  6. Dave Says:

    5 Pro Bowl selections and 7 alternates. That is way up from 0 selections and 1 alternate last year. Its a tall order but lets hope they don’t play because they have bigger fish to fry.
