I'm not sure I'd call that an advantage for you guys. In fact, the Bears are bringing a better scheme and better players to Lambeau. The Packers on the other hand, don't have anything new to show the Bears that they haven't already seen. These teams know each other very well but is GB that's seeing a new program on offense. So that's clearly advanatge for the Bears.
I mean lets be honest...the offense the Bears brought against the Packers in '10 - '11 was no serious threat. Things are very different now though.
I mean, lets face it: change isn't a new idea to NFL teams. Teams change schemes all the time. Some more significant than others, but from year to year every single team in the NFL changes the scheme they run, whether it be the type of routes they prefer, the type of coverage they play, their run/pass ratio, etc. Changes in scheme aren't that significant, especially not to a veteran DC like Capers. Pretty sure Dom Capers has game planned for new offensive coordinators and teams running new schemes before.
And last I checked, the Packers are working on fixing their defense. You act as if we're just spinning our wheels while the Bears have done nothing but get better everywhere. We have young talented players getting their reps in no different than any other team in the NFL.
And last, but certainly not least, a good chunk of your posts come back to the same theme: the Bears are better. The Bears have equaled/surpassed the Packers/this team/that team! The Bears offense will be super amazing this season! Blah blah blah, all the while this new super amazing Bears offense has yet to take a snap in an NFL game yet this season thus you have nothing to base it on. I have no doubt Tice is a step up from Martz (honestly, who wouldn't be? I said he was a horrible hire from the start), but lets wait until the rubber meets the road before we crown their asses, ok?

I'm looking forward to seeing these guys coach. Hope they're good.
I'm not convinced the Pack will win. We've actually done well playing them at home but I'd say they do have an edge. Not a big one but an edge nonetheless.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap.
