    The Bears have got their backs up against the wall. I have always heard that you don’t want to mess with a bear that has been cornered. So beware Pack and be prepared for a knock down drag them out fight. The Bears will have to play like their season depends on it, and so will the Packer’s, because it does . Go Pack !

    Packers need to be ready for a desperate team, do not let up because Bears are on a losing streak. This week start EARLY. You are starting too slowly. Yes, we got robbed in Seattle so you still have to win this one and the other 2!

    Let’s just beat the Bears!

    Winning the division will be great.

    Beating the Bears (again) will be priceless.

    This is week fourteen and we are still looking forward with anticipation to every Packer game. It doesn’t get any better than that!

    The Bears may well indeed be cornered, and they will surely lay it all on the line. Having said that, the task GB faces narrows down to really putting the clamps on the Cutler/Marshall combination. Stop that, and GB will win. Looks like Matthews and maybe Woodson come back which will help. The GB run game is turning into a pleasant surprise which will open up a few big plays through the air, GB just needs to capitalize on the opportunities.

    I think they get it done in Chicago Sunday and then win out to get the best possible seeding. Whatever happens, for the love of God, do NOT hold players out to keep them healthy for the playoffs. It comes back to bite those teams who did so in the backside every time.

    The Packers need to play with more energy and precision on offense than they have of late. Compare the way the Packers played against the Lions on offense versus the way the Patriots played against the Texans on MNF. From a football standpoint, the Patriots played with great precision and with high energy on both sides of the ball. We saw this from the Packers on defense against the Lions after the first quarter but the Packers offense was inconsistent as if they played just good enough to win. Come the playoffs such habits will “bite” a team in a “one and done” format. The Packers are very talented on offense. They need to play up to their ability [see the 2010 late season run]. If they do this team can win another Super Bowl. It is the time of year to “take no prisoners”. This time is “now”.

    Let’s continue the winning streak in Chicago. Maybe we can get that up to 21 years too! Wouldn’t that be great. It is a good time to be a Packer’s fan in Chicago!!!

    Great running game against a very good defensive line !! hope we keep that going and the way the bears got crushed last week but of course that was against AP!! hopefully we can do the same this coming week. My hat off to the Greenbay coaches the runningbacks and can’t do it without the men up front the “O” line nice job fellows !!

    Good teams win games they should win. Without Urlacher, Jennings and Gould out the Bears can definitely be had. If Matthews, Woodson and Nelson can’t be ready for this game then the injuries are more serious than we’re being told. They needed Matthews big time last week. They have little pass-rush without him. Stop the run, rush Cutler, bracket cover Marshall with Hayward in the slot and it’s gonna be a pick-fest. Cutler sucks. He’s only good when their defense is playing well. He’s never ever won a big game for them. The only time Cutler has beaten us was on MNF when the league spotted them 18 penalties. If they call an even game it’s gonna be fun to watch. After further review..THE BEARS STILL SUCK. GO PACK GO!!!!

    Simple…..BLOCK! Thats it…..Block!
    Can you imagine where this team would be if they had a good, and I mean good, not great or stupendous or dominant, just good O-line. Give Rogers an extra second or so, make that block on the run plays to spring the RB for 10-20 yards 8-9 more times in a season. Can you imagine where this team would be. It’s nice to dream.

    If the Packers find a defense, and an offense and a kicker they may have a chance against the bears.Punting we’re pretty good. Can someone explain why our receivers are always so well covered that Rodgers is almost forcing the ball in a small window (when he gets time to throw) and our defense can’t put pressure on the other qb and their receivers are always fairly wide open ten yards down the field.

    They also win the division with one win in their final three games and one Bears’ loss in their final three games. Easy – Peasy.

    Packers win out season. San Francisco loses to New England and Seattle = Packers as #2 seed. Atlanta loses in 2nd round, Packers win = NFC championship in Lambeau! That’s all I want for Christmas I still have my two front teeth!

    The pack have to get into a rhythim on offense early. Put all the pressure on cutler. They do that and they’ll win.
