<quoted text> good luck trying to overhaul your defense that gave up 325 rushing yards in your playoff lost. Packers would not have been in that game if ponder didn't get hurt. So keep thinking your team is all that and open your eyes, your packers are soft and it would take three years of perfect draft pics to fix. You can't stop the run game and you have no run game, Rodgers can't carry the team in the playoffs, anymore:
Well,we have been hearing this same drivel for a few years from you,well, a SB championship and 2 straight division titles, 5 straight playoff appearances and one of the best overall records during that time period,SO, if you would like to compare notes between the 2,then lets shall we?

He won't do it Eric. That would be showing too much class for him. He'd rather focus on the Packers success and what he finds wrong with that than focusing on the failures of his team, the Bears.

Hes just trolling and trying get under everyones skin plain and simple and when the time comes when Chicago passes GB he will be on here gloating and when the Bears lose in the playoffs then its all of a sudden a great year because they made the playoffs ect.There is no honor in welching and you would have to be a complete ass if you think Chicago had a better few years then Green Bay has had but jealousy is making him into an ass, he just cant stand GB has a playoff football team and Chicago has done basically nothing the last 6 years or so except in 10.With the cap,its designed for teams that suck to get better,teams that are great to fall back by losing players to lesser teams with cap space ect,No reason why Chicago should have been weaker then GB for 5 of 6 years and the 1 year Chicago finished higher then GB,GB not only beat them twice in 4 weeks,knocked them out of the SB But did it with 1/3 of their team on IR except for Chicagos management sucks ( at least now they got a new GM ) which should help.Question is,,,is the new coach in Chicago better then Lovie Smith? L.S. was a defensive coach,this new guy is an offensive coach so its apples to oranges and the CFL is a much more wide open field type thing.I like Lovie,he was a hell of a coach,we will see if this new guy can improve on the offense while not losing much on defense ( although losing Urlacher will hurt more then Bear fans are willing to admit i think) He clearly isnt what he was ( who is after over a decade of playing in the NFL) but defensive captain,leader and teams gameplanned against the Bears keying on B.U.( maybe not so much the final year or 2 in Chicago but still.)

Green Bays record over the last 20 years. Could be wrong but is somthing like 17 winning seasons ,1 at 8-8, and 2 losing seasons. 2 superbowls and 1 other appearance. (2 in a row) And I lost count but I think were in the playoffs 14-16 of those years. And countless div. champs some in a row. NUMBERS DONT LIE

Yes, numbers don't lie , packers gave up almost 600 yards in their last playoff game. Clay Mathews gives up 600 yards and gets the big money contract!!!! Rodgers can't keep up with SF and will be getting more money than any other player in history!! Numbers do not lie!! Bears have beaten the packers more time in history, numbers do not lie!

The unfortunate trend is that Rodgers is developing into a Dan Marino type of player, big numbers during the regular season, but then becomes out matched in the playoffs. The Packers need much more than one draft can provide, the last three first round picks are basically injured duds. Bulaga is a stiff; Sherrod already shows signs of a short career and Perry...did that guy even play last year?

We get it Packluv1. How do you think your record setting Bears defense would have done against the 49ers in that playoff game? Oh, wait a minute, we'll never know because the Bears didn't make the playoffs. That particular game I think the 49ers would have beaten anyone they played. That's just the way it is. Opportunity. That's what the Packers had by making the playoffs. The opportunity to get into the "second season" so to speak. Not always going to win but at least they had the chance. Where were your beloved Chicago Bears, Packluv1? At home is where. Trying to figure out how they blew a 7-1 record and missing the playoffs all together. At home trying to figure out how their "record setting NFL defense" couldn't get the job done against teams with winning records. At home trying to figure out why the keep losing to the Green Bay Packers. At home deciding to let their best player in the last decade or so simply walk. At home firing coaches. At home trying to figure out how to we ever keep up with Packers, Vikings, and Lions. AT HOME!! I know the Packers defense failed miserably against the 49ers. Can't look at it any other way. But they at least they were there. Where were the Bears? You know the answer to that don't you. You should be more concerned about than the Packers' play against the 49ers. I suspect you can't take a look at how your team faltered and refuse to comment on that. It's too hard for you to admit the Bears were a failure last season isn't?

Even with that worst D where were the Packers? Playing in the play off AGAIN. Where were the bears ? Sitting at home AGAIN.Forget about the past. Even the present is the same, the bears still at HOME watching.

Not to mention a healthy big bad Bears defense lost to SF 32-7,,GB defense lost ( in the playoffs a whole different animal 45-31 and lost game 1 where anyone can win by a close margin 30-22 i believe)Not to mention GB has made a habit of beating Chicago and beat Cutler to the point,he whined and made an ass of himself,then big mouth Brandon challenged GB and the Packers held him to 5 catches 60 plus yards and 1 TD in 2 games ( right after the whiner told the Packers "Good Luck" about stopping he and B.Marshall) 7-1 choke job which followed a 8-3 choke job which followed a good season but GB beat them 2 times in 4 weeks and knocked them out of the SB..Missing the playoffs 5 of the last 6 years and the captain walked, it must really suck being a Bears fan.

Reading an opinion page from WSJ, the writer mentioned GB needs to select an olinemen with pick 26.
Many tackles will be gone but Melinek Watson FSU ( sorry im sure i hacked the spelling) will be there and we have to protect the franchise..
in the last 86 games,Rodgers was sacked 223 times
In Favre's last 85 games,he got sacked 95 times, Favre was known as an iron man but seems to me Rodgers is proving to be a tough SOB himself AND is producing better numbers then Favre with much less protection ( granted some of Rodgers sacks was him holding on to the ball so is not to throw an INT and no one can truly count how many INT he saved or whatever so we wont go there) Point is to prove just how valuable Rodgers truly is and he needs to be protected. Heres to hoping TT makes the right call
after reading that Watson just may be the right pick and GB can always trade a 2nd and 3rd for an upper 2nd and go with a Defensive lineman ...

My only complaint with Watson is that puts Bulaga back to RT,,Yes a great pass blocker but average at best run blocker..
We need to run Hence Don Barclay like the end of last year ( unless they can land DJ Fulker a mammoth RT),then Bulaga can protect Rodgers blind side by great pass protection at LT

MY WHOLE POINT IS,,,,we can make the Defense better by a better clock eating,longer drive and converting 3rd and short type drives.May not be glamorous but very effective.

Think about all of this for about 1 minute if you can.

You come to the Packer forum to “gloat” that the Packers lost in the playoffs. Yet your team “the bears” didn’t even make the playoffs, they haven’t for 2 years and when they did make the playoffs they got bounced by the Packers.

Your team has not beaten the Packers in 6 years. Do you know how stupid you sound? It is pathetic! Talk all you want about the Packers and their new contracts and the defense or whatever you want. The bears have been nothing but a bunch of losers and have won nothing. They are under a complete rebuild baby steps program. They are LOSERS, just like you. It will never matter what you say, we will always just laugh at you for your never ending anger at Packer fans, even though we all know you are really angry at the bears failures and ineptness (look that up if you need to).

Btw
-If you think the Packers defense is so bad you are probably VERY F’N concerned about the bears offense right now. They have lost 6 straight to the Packers averaging only 13 POINTS in those 6 losses, imagine that! ONLY AVG 13PTS to that defense you call horrible. You say the Packers defense is so bad yet the bears average ONLY 11,5 pts per game vs the Packers in 2012. HA, 11,5 PTS PER GAME IN 2012 = F’n LOSERS LMFAO!!!! The bears offense must be much much worse than the Packers defense is if they can only manage to score 23 pts in 2 games!!! What a bunch of losers!!!! HA!

No wonder you concern yourself with the Packers and not the bears, you would be throwing up in your mouth daily if you looked into just how bad the bears are. Seek help young man!:)

Say do you post on the bears topix forum?
-I bet you don’t, because you are only here to try deal with your anger at the bears ineptness by projecting said anger at Packer fans. I know you are really mad at the bears failures and not me, I don’t take it personal, I hope you find peace in the bears failures and learn to except it. I except the bears as failures and so can you!

Looks like the answer is no. I am not surprised. packluv never wants to talk about the bears and all their mighty failures.

he chose the name packluv for a reason, though it was probably through his deep subconscious. He thinks he loves success and wishes for success from his favorite team, yet he knows the Packers are way more successful than the bears have been or will ever be.

packluv actually = packenvy!

Maybe we should refer to him as 'packenvy!' from now on, I know I will.

Tomorrow should be interesting...T"ao may go to Chicago from what ive heard.

Glad its tomorrow, Now, finally get to see what Ted will do with your 26th pick.
Who will it be,will we trade it? we will find out in a bit over 24 hrs
Menilek Watson?
Erik Reid?
Arthur Brown?
one of the few DE available?
Trade out for an upper 2nd and another(others) pick?
We should all make a prediction and see if one of us can hit it exactly.

Ok, I will play.

This is what I think will happen but not what my top choice. I prefer we trade back and get more picks in the 2nd and 3rd.

But, I think we stay at 26 and pick TE Eifert and then take DT Johnathen Hankins in rd 2.

Hey, last year I predicted Perry and Worthy! feel free to applaud!

If we trade back and get an extra 2nd and 3rd I go...
RD2 WR Robert Woods
RD2 DT Johnathen Hankins
RD3 DT John Jenkins
RD3 G/C Travis Frederick,
RD4 RB Mike Gillislee

Go Pack!
