I was confused that Finley had 3TD’s and Rodgers only had 3 himself…because this isn’t the Bears game I was thinking about (Christmas Day). It wasn’t difficult to figure out, but was a little confusing right off the bat. @Andy, it’s a lot, not alot. Zing.

Hey if we ended up 32nd in Ypg allowed through the air at the end of the season but were 1# or 2# in the nfc, i wouldn’t complain. Fact is the offense is always up by 3 scores, so opposing offenses have to play catch up which involves no running and big pass plays, so those numbers mean nothing

The replay showed Starks had control of the ball before he fumbled. Still, a RB is not expecting to get hit that quickly after getting the ball. Starks had never fumbled before, so McCarthy had no reason to think he would.

McCarthy was not overly conservative in his play-calling at all this game. Rodgers was somewhat conservative in his choices on where to throw the football. However, he typically is against the Bears.

The Bears are an opportunistic team, as they showed after Starks’ fumble. The last thing you want to do is make mistakes against them.

Yeah, the Packers had some 3 and outs. The Bears had a TON of them. Sometimes, you have to give the defense some credit.

A lateral that is droped is a muff, and it is a live ball, and can be recoved. If Starks never had control of the ball, it is a muff.

The Packers had 3 , 3 and outs in the 4th quarter….thats b s for an offense like that. The offense has got to learn to finish games, eat clock, keep drives alive, and quit relying on the defense.

I dont know if its his hamstring or what, but its time for him to “get home” on the qb. Some will say he’s double teamed….so what, he was double teamed all last year.

Nice game-plan, Packers. So much for Lovie’s “Our mission is to beat the Packers…” Bears = Fail

It looked like a muffed handoff to me, I do not know if he ever had control of it.

However, they still have a stout D that usually plays the Packers tough. This game wasn’t really as close as 10 points, although some stupid mistakes kept the Bears “in” the game. Totally impressed with the Packers run defense so far this year, especially with 2 down linemen in the nickel. I think the reason we aren’t seeing more sacks from Matthews is the coaches are telling them to hold their gaps, which is stopping the run but sacrificing some pressure from the outside. You can’t stop both pass and run every game I suppose. I’d rather see teams forced to pass and let the secondary make plays, rather than give up big chunks of yards on the ground. That wears out defenses and kills the clock. Go Pack!!
