17 penalties, ties some record back to the 40's
Aaron never had a chance to boot the game, Jones did it for him.
GB always pushes the limits on how they play, just that this officiating crew didn't let it slide.
The move of the one official to the backfield gives them a better view of the line play which resulted in more holding calls IMO.
The defense fell apart at the worst possible time with the interference penalties easy to see.
Rodgers played splendidly, he did all he could, but the utter lack of a run game won't bode well against the elite of the league.
This was GB's game all wrapped up with fine gift paper and handed to the bEarS.
Got to give the Bears credit for getting the job done. Their lines played very well and they did a good job of capitalizing on the opportunities they had.

I dont know how you figure the game was so much faster than a Vikings game.1 passing touchdown and 1 rushing touchdown is hardly faster than a Vikings game.

Hey CT... good to see you. Always enjoy your posts.
That's hard to say. The Packers really seem to like Flynn, but he's no Rodgers (though he hasn't exactly had a lot of chance to play so no one really knows). He's had a few years to learn the system, so I would hope he'd be able to step right in and not lose the games himself.
I don't know much about TJack other than what I read on the forums, but he's at least got starting experience. Plus, the Vikes don't really need to rely on their QB with AP in there.
You never want to see a team lose their starting QB, but I guess to answer your question I think the Packers would be in rougher shape, if for no other reason than they haven't established a running game with Grant out for the season and really rely on the QB position.
Thanks, answerman. Good to see you are posting more frequently as the season wears on.
Tough loss for the Pack. Have to hand it to Chicago for keeping it close enough to pull off the win in the closing minutes. You guys will bounce back, no doubt.
In my humble opinion, the Packers losing Rodgers would be far more devastating than the Vikings losing Favre. Mostly because T-Jack could just as easily be 1-3 with 2 TD's and 6 INT's. I think the Packers were willing to take the holding penalties as opposed to giving up the sack or QB hit. That is one way the lack of a running game manifests itself. It's not always obvious but it is always present.

Hmm... I can relate...

This bye could not come at a better time IMO- get rested up and get their heads on straight for some very tough games ahead- hopefully we will see the old goat smiling again soon...
Still 0-4

They hung around after a ton of adversity, Peppers was as good as advertised. Cutler kept battling after taking that shot to the chin, they certainly didn't give up, proven by the hustle and subsequent fumble (Urlacher, Briggs).
Lots of momentum swings, strengths and weaknesses evident.

Wow, that sure is a lot of praise coming from you. I've been telling anybody and everybody about this team. Now they have people's attention.

Talking big after that win shows the shallowness of your football acumen.
The final score IS all that matters, but look at the box score on this home field win.
Being dominated by gb at home doesn't bode well, or do you think Chicago will be that lucky all season long?

Gee, we have the only unbeatened team in the NFC. Arent we lucky. Wait until Nov. 14, the way the Bears are playing, we wont just beat Minnesota, we will kick the stuffing out of them.

I dont know Da Bears.AR threw for 310 yards with no running back and a line that didnt do well.
Minn has BF who might be in one piece,AP who will run all night and that should help the passing game and you better pray S.Rice isnt healthy and in shape ( which he might be or might not be,we will see), or kicking the stuffing out of them might be a stretch.A LONG STRETCH!

I was staying out of this but those are fighting words.The way the Bears are playing right now itll be the Vikings that do the kicking.Yes youre in first place with 3 games played out of 16.You best bring on a better game than that.The Vikes have allowed only four touchdowns in three games so dont toot youre horn yet.The best is yet to come.

The Bears are reminding me a lot of the Broncos last season, they started out 6-0 but their true colors eventually showed and they didn't even make the playoffs. This Bears team isn't even as good as the Broncos of a year ago IMO, the wheels will fall off.

It only takes defensive coordinators a couple of weeks to figure out Mike Martz these days, that's why he's not a head coach anymore. Well, that AND he's insane. Realistically, the Bears are taking advantage of the fact they are currently an unknown entity. Once there is a few weeks of film on them, the surprise is over. Then it comes down to personnel and matchups. The key is how well Martz can get Cutler to change his game.
The Bears have played well enough to stay in games and give themselves a chance to win. Keep winning and you just might have a good team. I'd be careful about that November prediction. Once healthy, few teams can match up against the Vikings.

Really! How many picks did Cutler throw in the Pack game? Of course you are going to say 1, but he also threw 2 more in the critical point of the game that they got lucky on, because the pack imploded and committed penalties. He keeps doing that, your team will come back to reality just like the Pack did. Your team beat 2 teams that are highly overrated, then got lucky with a technicality against the Lions.

Yes your defense is playing well...its your offense that's holding you back. The o-line still looks the same, Brett is forcing things again(2Td, 6 ints) if you didnt have AP you'd be in big trouble.

Bears offense sucked tonight. Their defense kept them in the game for a long time, which was remarkable. They made the Vikes look good by comparison.
