    Everyone would agree that Aaron Rodgers missing significant time is the best thing for the Lions and Bears, as they vie for first place in the division. As I've said elsewhere, Rodgers' timetable is to get back for the second game against Detroit, having won the first time around. Even if the Packers were to somehow win this weekend, the Bears would own the tiebreakers, and have the most divisional wins going into week 11.

    The other aspect of this is that San Francisco and Carolina are playing each other, as well. They are the two non-NFC North teams currently in the hunt for the wild card. A win not only gives us a division lead heading into the easiest 3 game stretch remaining (home against the Ravens, on the road against the Rams and Vikings), and a tie with one or both of the other wild card teams, in terms of wins.

    Last week was the biggest game of the season, but now that we actually won, this week could absolutely be the tipping point.

    Hope they can figure out a way to slow down Bush (we have always seemed to struggle against him), and double or triple Megatron.

    Our best defense is our offense. I want to see a lot of long,time-consuming scoring drives from the Bears.

    That's all I've been asking for all season. To prove scoring quickly is stupid, look at the Philadelphia Eagles have scored 25 touchdowns, and average 1:48 in TOP. Their defense sucks, and that's partially because they have the same problem we do (the good thing for us, is that our problem seems to stem from players learning a new system, the Eagles' system, and not players learning the offense, is the problem), crappy defense, and a high powered offense that turns it over too much.

    We have struggled all year against good RBs. Hell, even just decent RBs gouge us pretty good. We have to find a way to stop that because between Bush and Johnson, it's going to be a rough day if the D does not show up.

    And we simply CAN'T turn the ball over with stupid ints and fumbles. If we don't protect the ball on offense today - we lose.

    If we end up scoring a TD here at the end, that 3 points Trestman passed on will have cost us the game. If we don't score, its a mute point

    WOW! McCown did it. We need a 2 point conversion to tie. We would have won with that damn field goal!!! :mad:

    Why we don't use Bush in the short yardage attempts, I will never know.

    We have the Green Bay Packers trying to give us the division championship this year - and we can't beat the Detroit Lions :-(

    How sad is that?
