    I went back and Looked at the final drive, and I was totally amaze.

    Started at our 11 yard line with 9:48 to play in the 4th Quarter.
    Consisted of 18 plays
    Consumed 8 minutes and 58 seconds.
    Consumed all of the Packers time outs.
    Concluded on the Packers 6 yard line.
    Resulted in a Field Goal giving us a 7 point lead.

    I'm not sure I have seen that from the Bears since Orton did it years ago.

    Yeah, everyone is focused on Rodgers being out, that people forgot that our offense was still up against their starting D (minus Clay Matthews though). They had quite a few succesful drives.

    What did you think about the holding call against M. Bennett? I thought it was tacky.

    Most of the calls were BS. Not one single flag against the peckers. not one. I saw several blatant holds and a couple PIs. I also thought they had a guy ahead of the ball on the onsides. We were called for a toenail in front of the ball last game. And the spot an Marty where we had to go for it on 4th and inches was a gift to the peckers as well as a 1st down given to them that was about a yard short. And I still am wondering what happened to the 5 seconds between when we called time out and the clock stopped on that last drive.

    What about the last drive of the Bengals game that took up 6 minutes or so.

    Yes there's a reason this offense is productive on all fronts. Let me think why.......oh, that's right we have coach that is as smart as McCarthy now and GM that can get guys in a draft like GB. No longer do we have coach that requires instructions for laying sod with card in his hand reading "green side up" Lovie.

    Yes, it seemed that at many critical points in the game, the refs made a call for the Packers.
