Matchups are everything in the NFL. You don't scheme guys open without winning some matchups. I do think that Philbin is going to chip away at his stubborness with some aspects of the offense, like running the ball and throwing screens.
I don't think so. I think they want to spread the Bears out and make them cover Adams and Graham. And then get Jamaal Williams involved.
I think they go no-huddle when he's in the game. Try to get him gassed. He hasn't played much with pads on and no matter what kind of shape you're in, game action is way diffrent.
It's weird. I think something happened today or he woke up with tightness. I'll try to find out after the game.
Let me give one warning about the defense. Bears coach Matt Nagy comes from the Andy Reid/Doug Pederson system. You are going to see all kinds of weird formations, trick plays and constant motion. He is going to stress the Packers playing in a new system. Watch for them to struggle on defense early.
Getting pressure on Trubisky is important, but I think it's more important that they play the run well and force Trubisky into bad down and distances. Then you can go to your nickel defenses and start doing some exotic things.
I had a week to recover from a really cruddy cold that I picked up in Kansas City and I feel like I'm 100%.
He could be. The Packers will definitely not let him beat them, but be prepared for him to get a sack and a hit or something like that. He's a very, very good player. I just don't think he'll play more than 20 snaps.
I don't know if it will be tonight, but we'll find out fairly shortly. By mid-season, he should have a handful of sacks.
No, Perry will play a good number of snaps, especially in this game where they need him against the run.
On come the Bears from the locker room and onto the field.
I don't think so. They hav e to keep him healthy.
It's 62 degrees, wind east at 10 mph. Temp will drop into the low 50s.
So, just a reminder, you guys be my eyes and ears tonight. I don't have the sound on the TV and I'm often looking at my keyboard, so keep me informed.
I don't know. New coordinator so it might take him another year. But he's got talent.
