I don't think it was stupid either. We put our best unit on the field first. Many good things could have come of it, but it didn't. Also, at the end of the half, had we been able to put points on the board we would have had momentum going into the half with the ball to start the 3rd quarter. It didn't turn out that way, but the scenario existed until Jay through the INT.

Well hindsight is always 20/20.

Really? That offends you. After your dumb ass trolls the board? You post shit, you'll get shit back. If you want to talk big boy football, then you'll get respected.

Agreed. It seems like we're either both out of it or one of us is blowing chunks while the other is playoff bound. I think if we both continue to upgrade our lines, you upgrade receivers and dbs, we find a run game that works more than sporadically and a special teams unit that doesn't fail horribly and we're going to see a lot more awesome Packer/Bear games in the coming seasons.

I haven't been on here in a few days, mainly because the loss in the NFC Championship Game emotionally drained me. But I agree. This might be the first series of match-ups between the Packers and the Bears where the NFC North Division Championship will have a lot riding on the winner(s). Lord knows that Minnesota is going to take a few years to rebuild since they don't have a quarterback that's worth killing, and Detroit is always Detroit, though they showed this year that they may have something positive to build on. I have to believe that the two teams in the NFC North that are going to be the prohibitive favorites are going to be the Bears and the Packers, with the Packers probably going to get the slight edge over us until we come up with an offensive line, a go-to wide receiver, and a cornerback. The Packers need help with their special teams, as you said, plus with the run blocking. This could be the best divisional rivalry in football in terms of what's on the line; it will certainly challenge Pittsburgh/Baltimore and New England/N.Y. Jets.
