The Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears met for the 191st time, making their rivalry the oldest in professional football. The Bears looked great against a Packers team that was ranked number one in a lot of preseason rankings. We got a first look at their brand new coaching staff, and I was impressed. They were actually beating the Packers at halftime, 13-10. But, after halftime it all fell apart. This collapse can be attributed to the lack of talent on the Bears’ roster.
Jay Cutler and the offense looked very good. A hobbled Alshon Jeffery had 5 receptions for 78 yards, and Matt Forte had 24 carries for 141 yards. It is obvious that they need another big time wide receiver. On the defensive side of the ball Shea McClellin and Pernell McPhee looked promising. Their defense looks to have a lot of upside, except for the secondary, which is looking quite weak at the safety position.
The Green Bay Packers have a great offense led by the NFL MVP, Aaron Rogers, and running back Eddie Lacy. This dynamic duo torched the Chicago Bears defense, which allowed three receiving touchdowns and a rushing touchdown. Chicago probably won’t play a better offense than the Packers this year, so I’m optimistic about their defense. Cutler just has to play a little better and the Bears can finish with a decent record, and hopefully make the playoffs. As a fan, I am really looking forward to the rest of this season! GO BEARS!
