Do you believe the Packers are a lock to win the NFC-N?

  1. Yes, we can't beat them. Aaron Rodgers is unbeatable.

  2. No, GB is a great team, but we have a REAL shot at unseating them this year.

    Is this a "done deal" or do we have a legitimate shot at unseating them this year?

    Do we "crown" Green Bay as unbeatable, or do you believe this upgraded Bears team has a real chance (a really decent chance) of retaking the division this year?

    i dont think, overall, GB is at all better than Cincy, of course they have Rodgers, but if our D plays a little better than last game - we got them

    After week one in the NFL, NO ONE is a lock for anything. Injuries happen to key personnel all the time; that goes for us and our opponents. No team in the modern NFL can sustain critical injuries to their starting QB, for example, and still expect to compete. All things being equal, I think this Bears team can be much more competitive with the Packers and we have a realistic chance at the Division, but so does Detroit (I threw up a little in my mouth when I thought about this). The only team that I do not think has a realistic chance is Minnesota, but stranger things have happened.

    It just all comes down to who keeps their key personnel on the field.

    I didn't realize until yesterday, just how little faith Bears fans have that we can beat Green Bay. I'm being serious here. Then I thought about how the Packers have pretty much owned us in recent years, and I guess that I can understand how Bears fans can lose faith and just "accept" that Green Bay is going to whip us every year, and win the division every year.

    This really did surprise me though. It's just accepting losing before the games are even played. Man, that's sad. It's like people think it's always going to be like the Lovie Smith, Mike Tice crap, here in Chicago.

    I'm looking towards the future, and not dwelling on the Lovie era past.

    I've been around for a little over 100 Bears/Packers games, and we've won a lot of times over the Pack during that span. In fact, the all time series is now at 92-88-6 with the Bears ahead in that series. So I'm not in that knee-jerk mode that we're automatically going to lose the division to GB this year.

    I think we have better talent, overall, on this roster than GB has.

    I understand that folks want to see the games played before they jump onto the Bears bandwagon. That's fine, and I understand that attitude. We've only played 1 game of the Trestman era. But I don't believe the Packers have supernatural powers or anything like that. I think we'll give them everything they can handle this year - and more.

    Either way, I do respect the Packers, and look forward to two fantastic games this year against them.

    Option three: Green Bay can kiss my ass, I'll never say anything nice about them and they should prepare their collective bung holes for the ass whoopin they are about to receive from the Bears and hopefully multiple other teams.

    There's a pattern here: The Bears are losers of 6 straight, and have only beaten them twice since 2008. The bolded comment is a rather loaded statement.

    Again, that's a loaded statement, the Packers have the same offensive scheme since 2006, and we've had 4 since then.
    Yes, but these are still mostly the same players that keep losing to them.

    Our all time record has nothing to do with the possibility of the Bears beating the Packers or not. Vince Lombardi and Walter Payton will have no impact, I guarantee. Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler will.

    But do we have a favorable matchup with them? That is, do our strengths match up well with their weaknesses, and do our weaknesses match up well against their strengths? With a horrible offensive line and defense over the past few years, Green Bay still owns us.

    No one does. Those who aren't "jumping on the bandwagon", by your definition, are merely concerned because Aaron Rodgers has consistently destroyed our Top-3 defense, year in, year out.

    I dont think this is an easy question. We dont know yet how to rate Trestman as a coach. Pack might be similar to cincy but coaching wise not a damn chance. Sometimes thats the difference between being a perenial under achieving team and a perrenial contender. If Trestman is a legit coach of course we can compete
