Boy that wasn't much of a game.  The Bears looked like a high school team.

Packers/Bears

It was great to see the Pack continue to find ways to establish their dominance.  They are fun to watch on defense when they are playing well.  The offense as we all know still thrives on how well that running game is going and efficient QB play.  The Bears - well just when you think wow these guys have finally figured this football thing all out.  One injury reminds us all of just how fragile they are and quite possibally how valuable  Kyle Orton really is with the potential he has shown this year.  That need for top level QB play  forcing an uneasy decision to be made and it backfired!  That just shows how inept Rex Grossman has become.

Packers/Bears

Not only did the Chicago Bears look like a High School team, their coaching staff coached like one!

Yes the Green Bay Packers outplayed the Bears on every aspect of the game, when the Bears put 8 in the box to stop the run, the Packers used play action, when the Bears went back to 7 in the box we ran it right down their throats.  As for the coaching staff of the Bears, it was down right horrible, the possesion before the half, run once, go deep to Hester, run again, and punt.  Why not run on all three downs if you were set on going into halftime with the score the way it was.  Then you have the switch to Train Rex Grossman when it is well known he can not pass with any accuracy, if they were worried about Kyle Orton and his health, they should have sat him this game all together. 

Anyways, enough about the coaching staff of the Bears, lets switch over to the GM and management issues.  When will the Bears figure out that you can not pay two guys on defense more than your entire offense makes and expect to win games.  Good thing they signed Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs to those big contracts, they really showed up on Sunday.  Granted Urlacher and Briggs are/were great linebackers, but to strap yourself on those two positions and have to end up using your remaining salary cap to fill important roles on offense just doesn't work,  but as a Packer fan, I love the stupidity spooing from Chicago right now.

It was a great game for the Packers in general, offense, defense, and special teams.  Way to go Green Bay, now lets hope we can play at that level for the rest of the year and win this very weak division we play in.

And one last thing, does A.J. Hawk look comfortable and ready to play inside linebacker or what, sad to see Nick Barnett get injured for the Packers to make this move, but it is what needs to be done moving forward.  If Barnett does not want to move to strong side backer, where his speed and quickness are ideal, I think the Packers should trade him and move on with AJ in the middle.  I appreciate what Nick has given the Packers over his years, but again it is a business in the NFL and this just makes sense, sure it was one game, so lets not crown him the next "66" but i liked what I saw.

Packers/Bears

Agreed, these bears looked like a team the Lions could beat.  Sadly Kyle Orton's return wasn't much of a bang.  It was more of a day that Greg Jennings, Ryan Grant, Aaron Rogers, and the Packers defence could shine.  They made this game look like a throw away scimmage. I support your thoughts.
