The Packer need to let Dom Capers go Look at the yards this defense is allowing. Capers has a history with teams he played for. each of the teams he was coaching defenses falls apart after a few years.
Capers problem is that he doesnt make a lot of adjustments at half,its basically the same look

<quoted text>At this point,you would have to call Clay's hamstring problems as chronic,it seems to be a yearly thing,as last year,he missed 4 games but they said this ones not a big deal and they do have a bye,so thats 2 weeks to rest it.I do know the Bears defense is scoring defensive TDs and striping the ball ect and maybe giving 400 yards was just a bad night,but, Pitts had no running game nad basically no offense up until the Bears game ( granted i didnt see alot of the game)GB defense,well, its almost expected to give up yards but the offense covers it in most cases, the Bears offense ( in the past) would come close to covering that if they did.They are 3-0 at this point,so job well done. Road victories are a bitch so you have to kick at home and so far both are undefeated at their house.In Cutlers defense, he has played with to many different qb coaches or Off. coordinators considering his time in Chicago,so maybe they found one he likes,he respects and fits in better with and its his contract year,so he has to play better if he wants to stay in Chicago or a bigger payday.I suspect hes in the same situation as Jermichael Finley is in..Contract year,underachieved to a point but if Brandon Marshall is vocal and wants Cutler,i would think the management would have to take that into consideration ( unless Cutler wants much to much cash wise)..If Rodgers did the same as Marshall and vocally expressed he wanted Finley to stay,im sure TT,MM and the other MM ( Mark Murphy as hes only the pres. and CEO right?) would stongly consider.(although,Finley will want more cash that GB can prob. pay as they have a dozen FA or so but have a few guys that can be cut w/o serious damage and money can be freed up)
Cutler actually was saying last year he wasn't out to break the bank. He said he would rather the bears spend the money on bringing in better players . He also said he talked to Brandon Marshall and his next contract he would give the home town discount too. They said the both have made a lot of money in this league and would like to retire bears and build a better team. Cutler & Marshall will be in Chicago a long time, all the pieces are starting to fall into place for the Bears offense.

Thats a good sign then,NOW, you just need Cutler to prove hes a starting qb for the next several years.Now,that he may actually have the same HC,OC and QB coach for more then 2 years in a row,you may see the Cutler that folks in Denver thought they would see and haven't and the guy Chicago traded for that they haven't seen yet.Thats a good sign both are willing to take less and realize they need players around them.Im expecting Aaron Rodgers will redo his deal in a few year when or if the cap gets tight and hes to hoping hes smart enough to realize it as well.

cutler was doing great in Denver until they got rid of Shanahan and then cutler wanted out and so did Marshall. I'm a big fan of cutler, I don't fall for media crap, worried about facial expressions and crap. Cutler not a starting QB? Stupid statement. Do you know how fast cutler would be signed by another team for monster bucks? Bears offense has the same amount of points as Green Bay right now after 3 games. Cutler was the best 4th quarter QB last year and I think this year. What happened to Rodgers last game?

Cutler also was 1-6 vs teams with a winning record.Part of the reason why Denver traded Cutler was he underachieved,never reached his potential and Chicago hasnt seen his Potential either.I never said Cutler wasnt a starting qb,i said,he hasn't lived up to his potential or hype,he didn't in Denver and so far he hasn't in Chicago as of yet. Rodgers had a bad game,it even happens to the best of them from time to time, he will be fine, hes not the highest paid and best qb in the NFL for nothing.Cutler has talent,hes a whiner for sure but has talent,you may be a big fan,but, Cutler hasnt done shit as a starter and is on borrowed time in Chicago unless he plays better,plain and simple and its been mentioned many times in Chicago,he has to prove hes good ect to stay

You mentioned Cutler would give a home town discount which is good for sure but again,he has to play better and prove he can be that qb,so maybe thats why he would give a home town discount.

I agree with most everything you said, except I do think the Packers probably should have simply done a QB sneak on the 4th down. And I thought Franklin could have picked up the first down on that play if he didn't go airbound (I'm not a fan of little guys jumping on plays like that), but kept running (legs driving) and slipped through a low gap.
As for the Vikings, that was easy to see coming. Like I told the Viking fans all off season. You can't take the best receiver (by far) from a team with a bad QB and expect it to improve. I know they are accustomed to losing. If they can learn to live with all the losing, I'm sure they can learn to listen to me, don't you think?
I am with you on not being a fan of little guys going airborne on those type of plays. I would have liked to seen a fake with a short pass. Anyway, it's over and done with. These Viking fans are listening to you. That's why you irritate them so much!

you got the story wrong about cutler in Denver, they fired Shannon & hired McDaniels as head coach. McDaniels the terd wanted Matt cassel for QB, so cutler forced a trade. McDaniels was begging cutler to stay once he couldn't get cassel. He was going on TV with cutler jerseys and making an ass out of himself trying to undo the mess he caused because the fans were pissed they were losing their Probowl QB. Cutler sold his house and would not return phone calls and flipped off the broncos new coach. Forced a trade to Chicago his boyhood team. Cutler is a pro bowler and came to Chicago with no weapons and no oline and still became the best QB Chicago history and looks like with his new weapons will be having a great year. Chicago Bears are ranking as one of the best teams in the league way higher than greenbay. If you want to talk about a whiner look at Rodgers last week, blaming the coach for him sucking so bad. Losing 3 of the last 4 games greenbay has been embarrassing more than impressing anyone. Hype, your defense and special teams are horrible and offense is good one week and blows the next. Note: you are in third place in the division, not even at .500.

Note..We are 3 games into a long season,GB was down a few years in a row and look at how it ended.AR and MM had a argument,it does happen.AR isnt whining at the ref before he hits the ground like Whiner Cutler did,OR sit on the bench whining like a temper tantrum child.He didnt blame the coach,they had a disagreement,,now, find me a qb/coach that didnt argue with eachother or disagree, Chicago also played 2 of their 3 at home,and if you think for a second Chicago's offense is remotely better then GB,i have a bridge to sell you

I dont remember the whole complete story but after reading yours i can now remember some of that but enough to say i was wrong and you were right,im sorry.I do remember he wanted Matt Cassel ( from his days in NE prob.) ill take your word about the Cutler uniform ect.Brandon Marshall is another story,how many times arrested? incidence? A great talent,who Denver kept a few years,traded to Miami,then Miami traded him to Chicago. Again,Great talent for sure but how many times have we seen such a great talent traded and playing for 3 teams ( all via draft then Trade) in 8 years or so?Great talent isnt just traded away.To his credit,he has kept himself out of trouble (how ever hes doing it) made a few stupid challenges or statements ( but so has Finley) so thats nothing new.OK, question,,Do you think Chicago got their money's worth for Cutler ( 2 1st round picks).Ill say this if Chicago doesnt make the playoffs or crash the rest of the year ( depending on the situation) if their offense sucks thats 1 thing,,if they suffer many injuries thats completely another)and they decide to go another direction,they wasted 2 picks,If Cutler plays well and they resign him and Chicago does something ( a few playoff appearences meaning) it was worth it.,,what do you think?

Brandon Marshall wanted out of Denver because cutler was gone & he wanted out of maimi to play with Cutler again. That's all he wanted to get back with cutler , he forced to trades to get back to him. Funny how one of or if not the best receiver in the league wants only cutler for his QB. Brandon Marshall' problems have nothing to jolly. Brandon has been a leader on the field and off for a few years now and has becoming one of the best WRs in nfl history. Chicago has got its money's worth for sure signing Jay Cutler, he's the best QB in Bears history and will be resigning now they have an oline, trestman & new GM that giving him what he needs. Last yr at 3 games in jay had been sacked 11 times, this yr.....only sacked 3 times. Lovie and old GM didn't do shit for the offense, things have changed. Players and fans are loving the new offense & management and things are looking good so far with the changes. Injuries can change the progress for sure, but cutler is already back to playing like a pro bower he once was.

I can give the bears some credit; they are 3-0 and have been able to fight and win a few close games...unlike the Packers who have lost by 6pts and 4pts.

Cuntler seems to be more relaxed and enjoying the new offense and probably more than that enjoys not being on his back all day. They are the division leader (but not Champs yet) and the Packers have to step and catch them like they did last year. I am glad the Pack have a bye week to get healthy and hopefully they get some guys back (Burnett, Hayward, Matthews, Finley, Lacy, Kuhn, Starks, did I miss anyone? It is hard to keep track).

It is a long season and I have mentioned before the Packers were 1-2 to start off last year. CHI @ DET will be an interesting matchup this week. Could be a huge win for CHI and I think the NFC North will come down to which team can win division games on the road and not just split.

This will be a good test for Chicago;s oline.Detroits Def line lead by cheapshot Suh will test the Bears oline and their quicker offense.Im looking forward to it and see how they hold up.

Three games hardly make a season, but got to hand it to Chicago so far.
As far fetched as it may seem at this time, the Vikings could still win the division.
You guys can bet about it.

you never know 40..not even a quarter of the season is over yet.
I dont know how many 0-3 teams ever came back to win the division but,its still doable,although,Minn is also 0-2 in the division,so they have a heck of an uphill battle as they ( as of now) dont have the tie breaker with Chi or Det. having lost to both already.

Brandon Marshall one of the best WR's in NFL history? He's not even near the best in the NFL this season. Overrated and always has been.

Brandon Marshall is better then any GB wide out. Last year Marshall was number three in the league higher than any packer.

funny how cutler is a whiner if he gets upset and Rodgers is just a disagreement. It's a known fact players have to be very careful around Rodgers in the locker room. He's very sensitive and they have to tip toe around with the things they say because he will get upset. Talk about a whiner!! Driver, Jennings & Mathews have all commented on this. I watched him get upset at a book signing on TV and he acted like a baby girl while cameras were rolling, couldnt stop being a baby even with cameras there. Take a look at your own QB before you open your mouth.

Rodgers wasnt whining he and the coach had an argument,thats a big difference then the whiner complain at the ref because someone took 1 step and put a shoulder pad into his rib and knocked him a few feet ( mind you,the Steeler didnt even rap him up and tackle him which he could have with only taking 1 step,he held up and Whiner Cutler still pissed and moaned at the ref).Taking him self out of an NFC title game and being outplayed by a 3rd stringer,,shouldering his LT because C.M. sacked him to hard,,YEP, critisize a HOF qb who won an MVP and a Super Bowl championship and defend a Pussy/whiner who has done shit but choke a 7-1 record 1 season,went 1-6 vs teams with winning records another season,even you boys in Chicago know Cutler is an underachiever and has to prove hes good enough or Chicago may go elsewhere.( these are hosts and fans from YOUR OWN station)SO maybe you should take a look at the whiner and his accomplishments before you open your mouth,criticizing AR while you have Whiner Cutler doesnt make you look all that well.
