So. Do we have a decent DL, or was this a fluke?

    It looked like a completely different unit tonight. What happened? Is the DL better, or was this a fluke?

    Just a fluke IMO. The Packers O-Line was so bad plus they had no Erin Rodgers tonight.

    You'll see next week against Lions. I expect Lions will score about same as last time. Bears gave up a lot of run yardage even without Rodgers. That's not a good sign.

    I liked the D play calling tonight. Maybe they sorted some things out over the bye week.

    1 Pepp and Tillman both got extra rest b/c of Thurs football and the bye week, it might have made a difference.
    2 Tuk was on the field, maybe that made the difference.
    3 No Aaron after an early drive and all of a sudden the D and DL came to life, and yet they still got gashed for 200 yards rushing.

    I agree with this. I'd have to see a trend before I change my mind. And the running game was still a problem for us regardless.

    Need more Shea.

    Was very good tonight and will benefit from more snaps... He is no bust yet

    So.... now we can define "decent" by how a DL performs against Seneca Wallace?

    This was a "fluke" made possible by the awesome sack by Shea.
    This was a "fluke" made possible by the incomprehensible lack of an adequate GB plan in case Rodgers got hurt.

    But that is part of the game. The coaching, and manpower decisions, of GB forced them to get in a position to have to rely on Wallass... The coaching of the Bears were able to take great advantage of those decisions. The play of McCown was able to take care of our known crappy DL.

    Good game. Congratulations. You deserve the win.

    Just try not to elevate your DL to "decent" status too soon. You've only beaten Dalton, Ponder, Rapey, Manning and Wallace. Three of which are having some of the worst games of their lives this season, one of which took his first NFL snap in years, and ONE who actually turned out pretty good this year.

    I'm way more concerned by the easy missed tackles that are continuing. Our QB pressure from the DL was bound to pick up at some stage and result in more pressures and sacks. Pep is lifting and McLellin is showing something and Wooton is trying his hardest. That's bound to have results at some stage like it did tonight.

    But if we keep missing tackles we wont get in the down and distance enough to get off the field.
