Man, the Green Bay Packers under coach Forrest Gregg were terrible, but if there’s one thing you could count on, it’s that they’d lay some cheap shots on the Chicago Bears.
The Bears were good, especially in 1985 and 1986, and the Packers really had no business being on the same field with them at the time. There was a disparity in talent that was heavily in favor of Chicago, but for some reason, Gregg always had his team foaming at the mouth when they played the Bears.
Packers/Bears was THE rivalry and in the ’80s, these guys genuinely hated each other. It was a different time, before players on opposing teams helped each other off the ground and patted each other on the ass during the game. The hatred the Packers had for the Bears carried over from when Gregg was a player in the ’60s.
All of it lead to some infamous cheap shots on the Packers’ part.
Now, thanks to this video, you can relive some of them.
We’ve got Mark Lee throwing Walter Payton over the bench, Ken Stills crushing Matt Suhey well after the whistle (a personal favorite of mine), and the greatest cheap shot of all time — Charles Martin throwing Jim McMahon down on his injured shoulder after he’s throw an interception and ruining any shot the Bears had at repeating as Super Bowl champs after the ’86 season.
Fuck yeah! And fuck you, Chicago!
I’m gonna love when briggs crushes a rodge. Oh and don’t forget that urlacher owes you guys something.
What, some deodorant?
HAHAHA! AWESOME! Thank you for that!
Shove it Bears fan! Your old ass defense doesn’t stand a chance! Your best bet is Peppers and guess what? We’ll be throwing screen passes to his side of the field all day clown!
BTW, That was a sweet video Monty! Keep up the great work!
Just thought of a great screen name for all the Bears blogs: CharlesMartin94
Somebody please take it up before a Bears fan does! Love the hit on McMahon too!
Leave it to the fudgePackers to celebrate sucking so much that they have to resort to illegal shots to hold onto what’s left of their self-image.
And Bears are taking the division this year, 3 spots ahead of Green Bay.
That’s right, I said Detroit would come in ahead of you losers.
Funny! Bears fans sound almost more delusional than Cubs fans…how’s that working out so far? Get a real QB, real Offense and real young D and we’ll see if the bad news Bears can keep up. 2010 record Packers 12-4 / Bears 6-10…Lovie canned midway through the season.
Yeah… Something to be proud of here, huh? A bitch ass no talent team, had to resort to cheap shots to massage their puny ego’s… That’s cute… What a bunch of fairies. ahahahahaha
I’ve been a lifelong Packer fan and love to see the Bears smacked down, but that is some cheap shit. Maybe a Raiders fan or a Cowboy fan would be proud but not a real Packer fan. The Pack doesn’t need to act like asshats to put it to the Bears.
wesley – now that is some wishful thinking.
cheap shot city. really nice. bush league. who won this game?
Wesley Carter must be a complete idiot or just finished simulating the season on madden 11, haha!! what a dumb fuck, lions and bears ahead of the Packers?? hahahahahahahahahahahah good one!
Ah the good ol days when two team acctually hated each other. Back when you sacked the qb and steped on him when you got up. Now you cant hardly touch the qb, and then you help him up when he trips over his skirt.
Remember when the bears were good?? I know….you have to be in your mid to late 30’s to remember, but those were fun games to watch. It was real life wrestling for me as a kid.
Oh yeah…i know the bears were in the superbowl just a couple of years ago, but its just not the same. Just me i guess
I hope Da Bears do get better, it’s the way is supposed to be.
The queens suck.
You’ll see. The Viks will be the closest competition. Pay as close attention to the NFL as I do and then disagree with me.
Wesly, congrats you just lost all (if any) credibility you had at this website, claiming “I” know as “I” pay more attention…blah blah blah according to what athority http:// jeff ircink..you may be faster then that website loads (that ain’t a compliment try it)..but thats where your “in the know” stops…bears = sweep , two years in a row trust me I know on the authority of http://packerfaninfl.blogspot.com (quick load)
..what I ment to say

To be entirely fair, a lot of the detractors in this discussion make it sound like Packer fans are trying to claim that everything was entirely clean and that the organization and/or it’s fanbase is trying to put itself above such things. For God’s sake, Monty says “Good old fashioned cheap shots” in the title, and refers to “cheap shots” twice more in the body!
If you’ve been following for any length of time you should realize that this isn’t the most PC place, and probably shouldn’t be shocked when they dedicate a post to laughing at the misfortune, or potentially even the injuries of a rival (i.e. Bears or Vikings, or hell, even Lions, but they’ve got too much misfortune to list). But then again, maybe my standards are far too high for the general level of understanding of the trolls.
I would love to see a clip of Reggie throwing Cris Carter into Warren Moon (or whomever the Viqueens QB was at the time – Cunningham?). It was in the metrodome.
I agree with Kyle. This is not exactly a high brow site – which is the main reason I enjoy it. I’m tired of being politically correct all the time. Let’s all a spade a spade. Yes, they’re cheap shots. So?
I can’t wait to watch the fudge packers lose while I’m packing fudge. Then I can go to that great city where people love to vacation (Green Bay) and cheer everyone up by packing their fudge because that is what we do. I will love to push rogers shit in. Such a cutie! I love Green Bay, can’t wait until gay marriage is legal here.
