Greetings everyone, welcome to the live blog of Packers vs. Bears. It's a beautiful day at Soldier Field. Clear skies and temperatures are supposed to get into the mid-40s.
That's a tough blow for the Packers defense, especially with Mike Daniels out also.
The secondary is going to need to have a great day. That or Pettine is going to have to come up with some great blitz packages.
The Packers need Montravius Adams to step up, but I think there's a better chance that Tyler Lancaster plays a lot and makes some headway. He's been very solid and playing over the nose suits him. Not a lot of pass rush there, but he can play the run.
it could. But after a while you have to throw the ball down the field and you have to run the ball. You can only throw short stuff for a while before the Bears compensate. The offensive line has to have a lights out afternoon.
Good question. it was a surprise to many of us. I thought he was honest about his production. He didn't make any excuses. We'll see whether it has a cathartic effect. If he has a nice game, maybe he'll talk every week.
They can't really do much right now. They're not going to go after any college guys until after Wednesday, which is the end of the recruitment period. if a college coach talks to a pro team before that, he gets killed by the opposition in recruiting. After this week, we might hear of a few things, but really the search starts in earnest when the season ends.
I don't think he's reached that level -- yet.
Maybe. But part of it is the rookies have some trouble with all the nuances of the no-huddle and they are playing with two rookie receivers. The other is that Rodgers waits so long because he wants the defense to show what it's playing. The longer he waits the more impatient they get and are more likely to show their hands.
I think they have some promise. It will be interesting to see who the next coach is and whether those guys fit his style of offense. A Rams system likes shorter quicker guys. Those two are long-striders. We'll see.
No deep dish for breakfast. I'll take a look at halftime. Mayfield looks like he's got it all. That's why I think the guys i talked to for my column today think Cleveland is a better job than Green Bay.
Yes, that's a big difference. Janis was a dynamite special teams player and is much faster. But Kumerow runs far better routes.
Yes, I agree, especially with slot corner Bryce Callahan out. They've got to exploit that match-up with Sharrick McManus.
For sure. I mean, if they play the Bears tooth and nail and lose on a last-second field goal, Philbin will earn some points, but I don't think it will be enough for him to get the job.
I would say St. Brown has turned into the most promising. But that could change. J'Mon Moore has the most talent of all of them. He just has to show it.
I mean, the usual suspects: McDaniels, Bieniemy, Fangio, etc... But we need to see how the coaching turnstile spins at the end of the year.
