Lovie, Cutler and the Green Bay Packers
Many people look at Lovie Smith's record of 8-11 against the packers and get mad at him. After all he stated in his introductory press conference that his number one goal was to beat the packers. Looking at the record, he has not done that. However, that was not always the case.
Between 2004-2008, Lovie Smith and the Bears went 7-3 against the packers. Pretty good eh?
what changed? Two big changes. Aaron Rodgers took over the helm in Green Bay and we got Jay Cutler. Since get Cutler, they Bears have gone 1-8 against the packers including the playoff game. Cutler is 1-7 (missed game 2 last year with his finger). In that time, Cutler has thrown 9 TDs and 17 interceptions for a QB rating if 59.9.
Blame Lovie for for 8-11 record if you want, but put at least half the blame for the record on Cutler who absolutely sucks against the packers.
