Ask Vic Halftime: Expect more all-out rushes by Bears

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on December 29, 2013 – 4:53 pm

ask-vic-half-cenex-600-REVISE

Julie from Jackson, MI

Where is Eddie Lacy?

He’s splitting time with James Starks. Obviously, they’re trying to keep Lacy from wearing out late in the game, which is what happened against the Steelers when his ankle weakened.

Sam from Ridgewood, NJ

If the Packers win, can they be a Super Bowl contender?

In my opinion, every team in the playoffs is a Super Bowl contender. All it takes is one play and one win to make you a hot team. That’s exactly what happened to the Ravens last year. Just make it into the playoffs; just win today’s game.

Paul from De Pere, WI

Who is the most important Packer on defense today?

I think it’s whatever linebacker the Bears decide to pick on. I think that’s what they’re going to do, focus on the Packers linebackers and try to get them matched up on Matt Forte.

James from Tucson, AZ

Saw a Bears fan at breakfast. He suggested we go out back. I bought his breakfast.

He needs a lot more than a free breakfast.

Jarrett from Byron, IL

Do you have any pregame rituals?

I like to engage my media buddies, especially those I don’t see every week, and get their opinion on the game. There are a lot of big boys here for this game.

Ryan from Menomonie, WI

You were right, Vic, it would have been nice for Rodgers to get a game in before this one.

The second interception was the result of a high throw. That’s not a Rodgers-type throw. Yeah, it would’ve been nice had he been able to play last week, but it is what it is. What concerns me the most is that Rodgers is clearly hesitant to run with the ball, which is to be understood. That won’t be lost on Mel Tucker. I think we’re going to see more all-out rushes by the Bears to try to move Rodgers off the spot. The threat of scramble isn’t there. That’s a big part of Rodgers’ game that is missing today.

Matt from Saugerties, NY

The field conditions in Chicago are notoriously bad, so why doesn’t the league step in and do something?

They look fine to me. I intensely dislike whining and crying about field conditions. It’s football, not golf.

Joe from Bloomington, IN

First half is Rodgers preseason, second half is his playoffs. Got to keep it close until halftime.

Good thought. This one will come down to a big play in the fourth quarter. I can feel it.

Jonathan from Toronto, Ontario

Any insight on why the Packers ran so many sweeps in the first half against the Bears?

Zone blocking is all about getting defenders running laterally, and then cutting the ball back behind them.

Thomas from Vienna, Austria

We control time of possession, as you said; this is the key to the game, but we are still behind. What needs to be changed in the rest of the game?

Hang on for a minute. Jarrett Boykin is running with the ball. Changed!

Phil from Fort Wayne, IN

Vic, was the play that Boykin scored on the trick play we’re looking for?

That’s the one.

    Folks, even with Rodgers back, and no matter what Vic says, this defense is nowhere near good enough to win four playoff games. Add in the terrible special teams and a disastorous loss at Lambeau is coming if Packers win today.

    And yes mike I agree, Ted Thompson has put this team in a hole – three terrible drafts in a row, nick perry, and datone jones…..um yeah. How about the way he handled the backup qb situation……and his absolute reluctance to sign ANY free agents. My guess is if Ted Thompson is running the show, his buddy capers is back yet again next year, and another safe bet is they use the injury excuse again to save all of the coaches jobs. If Ted Thompson does not go out and bring in some talent and then bombs again on the defensive side of the ball in the draft, we will be in for a long season again next year

    After watching the game against the Bears, don’t you think it’s time that Ted Thompson takes a good hard look at his defense coach and his special team coach?? The Packers are getting beat because our special teams and defense once again. You can see the frustration on Aaron Rodger’s face already. Dom Capers is the only defensive coach in the whole league that sits in the press box. He needs to be on the field to see what’s going on. He can’t see from up in the press box!! And the special team knows full well that you DON’T kick the ball to Hester. It’s not like he’s a new player!! We know full well what he can do when you kick to him. Capers and his dime defense is just pitiful It’s really time to re-think our coaching staff. Ted Thompson has to remember that WE as fans own the Packers. It’s about time for him to listen to the fans, don’t you think??

  79. By rrfpacker on Dec 29, 2013 | Reply

    …Swamp…you nailed it. Capers got lucky in 2010 and so did Packers. Remember in the Super Bowl Packers had an 18 point lead and except for exeptional play by Matthews and the offense, they lose that game. The next year the defense waa the worst in football and it’s not much better.It really can’t be players, can it?

I have lauded the defensive picks by TT, I was quite happy with this year’s picks, but the players being continually out of position is the coaches responsibility, whether it’s scheme or teaching.

    Rodgers is simply the best. Nice return to action by Randall Cobb.

    Vic,
    I think you wrote that you had a vision of a friend giving you a dirty look during the Bears game. Did it happen?

    Hey Vic, just wanted to give you a tip for some side interest on the 49er’s Packers game next weekend. Eddie Lacy and 49er safety Eric Reid were teammates at Dutchtown high school in Geismer before Lacy went to Alabama and Reid went to LSU.

    Vic,

    What a great game, but there is one call I don’t understand. The first series of the 2nd half, 3rd and 1, and the Packers throw out of an empty backfield. They hadn’t punted the whole game, and were starting to dominate on the ground. The Packers were in control. That play changed the entire game. Can you defend or explain or understand that call.

    Will this team be successful against a team that doesn’t make mistakes?

    Aaron Rodgers is a really good quarterback but he never leads come from behind drives to win the game!

    Vic, This is my first time emailing you. My question is what is wrong with Dom Capers. It seems to me that some things (his thinking possibly) are drastically missing. I don’t get other teams running all over the Packers defense.
    Your column is exellent, I welcome your comments.

    Let me get this straight. Mathews and Jones are out and Jolly is on IR. The Packers didn’t have Cobb since October and Rodgers missed 7 games. In fact, the Packers started 4 different men at QB this season. 15 players are actually on IR. With all that they still managed to get into the playoffs AND host a playoff game. Name one other team that could have gotten through all that. Keep in mind that until Rodgers went down the Packers had a top defense. You can scream all you want that Rodgers doesn’t play defense, the fact is teams play you different when you lose someone like him. The team makes the playoffs and you idiots think the coaches should be fired?! There is no way that you are actual Packer fans. You people act like the Packers were winning all the Super Bowls until McCarthy, Capers, and Thompson showed up. Suggestion.. read up on the the history of supposedly your favorite team.
