After letting the hangover wear off and a little reflection, here are five more thoughts on the Green Bay Packers 23-10 win over the Chicago Bears.
1. Cedric Benson just might be as advertised.
It’s amazing what happens when you actually hand the ball to your running back more than nine times, isn’t it? Cedric Benson looked like the bull he’s been for Cincinnati over the past three seasons on Thursday night. He ran for 81 yards on 20 carries, which is a damn nice four-yard average. He was also the Packers second-leading receiver, with four catches for 35. Benson wasn’t supposed to be much of a receiver, so maybe he’s actually better than advertised.
2. Jermichael Finley will continue to frustrate you until he’s on another team.
You know this story. All the potential in the world… When the hell is this guy going to live up to it? Unfortunately, the answer is probably, never. Finley caught four balls for 26 on Thursday. He also had a drop and a fumble. Meanwhile, the Packers are giving D.J. Williams more playing time. Who wants to bet the Packers don’t give Finley the gigantic contract he wants after the 2013 season and instead go with Williams?
3. Clay Matthews has come to play.
No shit, huh? Matthews has six sacks through two games. So, at the end of the season he should have 48. He’ll blow by the single-season record by midseason. Let’s be real here for a second. Matthews is on a tear right now, but we all know he can’t sustain this pace for the entire season. It could be a very special year, though. Record-breaking, even.
4. Jay Cutler is a real doucher.
I mean, really? Did you see this guy post game? Hell, did you see him during the game? He was yelling at his linemen during the game. After, he was sitting around with his pouty, idiot face being a dick in his press conference. Real nice leadership qualities, douche. Now I know why Broncos fans despise this asshole. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say the Bears will never win a Super Bowl with Jay Cutler as their quarterback.
5. The Packers DBs stuck it to that fucker.
Remember Cutler’s comments earlier in the week about how his big, fancy new receivers were going to walk all over the Packers corners? The Packers do and they used it as motivation. How do I know this? Charles Woodson was interviewed after the game and said something like this. “He’s still Jay Cutler. He’s going to throw you the ball.” The you in that last sentence were the Packers DBs. The message: fuck you, Jay Cutler. Today, Tramon Williams was on ESPN and had a similar message. “He was like a kid with new toys,” Tramon said.
We have a running game! Omfg! Now if only our offense could get their groove back and stop with all these fucking 3 and outs. Only time will tell.
I really fuckin hope this is just some good defenses theyre facing, cuz i remember saying last year the defense would come around and they never did,
I really hope thats not the case this year w/ the offense
C-Wood’s comments after the game were hilarious.
It is nice to get some shit going between us and the Bears. Let’s rev this rivalry up a little. It isn’t like we get much satisfaction out of destroying the hapless Vikes anymore.
Of course, I guess there is always the A-hole Lions.
After the game, dipshit Cutler was asked how he thought he played. He said, “Good and bad.”
I guess I missed the the “good” part.
After one of his idiotic INTs, one of his lineman should have gotten in his face and started screaming at him.
The offense is going to be fine! Ced Ben is going to bring a dynamic to our offense that we have not had in a long time, IF our line can give him something to work with.
The best thing to take away from this game is how great our defense looked! Defense wins championships and if they can keep building off of last night we will tough to beat.
There is nothing better than seeing Jay Cutler pissed off
Since mike tice has been in shitago is he looking more and more like clark Griswald?
Yes he is.
Let me start by saying that a win over there Bears is at least four times as enjoyable as a regular season victory over any other team. Nothing but tumbleweeds in Chicago today, and that’s what I have come to expect and enjoy. These twats invade your personal space and talk shit all week long, but once your team beats them, they don’t want to hear it back. It’s incredibly calming, actually.
1. Give Cedric at least twenty carries per game and don’t act surprised when he produces.
2. See my comment from a few posts ago. The guy is a chump and totally unfit to wear our uniform. Our ‘elite’ tight end is barely average.
I bet if you asked DJ Williams, he’d tell you he is more than capable of hauling in half the catchable balls thrown his way. That’s surely enough to replace Finley’s production, at a fraction of the cost. I am so god damn tired of talking about eighty-eight. Cut your losses with him at the end of this year, not next. That’s why Ted structured his contract that way.
3. Fucking stud. I hate it when people quote Rounders, but, “Pay that man his money.”
4. Monty’s last sentence says what I have been saying since he was traded to Chicago. Talk all you want about his rocket arm and quick release, the guy has only one pitch, to use a baseball term. I still blame Marshall for the endzone drop, but any semblance of touch from Jay and that’s a game-changing touchdown.
Mechanics and skill aside, the guy is King Douchebag and certainly no leader.
5. We got what was expected from our star defensive backs, but, as Monty pointed out, it is usually a great and telling sign when the names of the others are not mentioned during the course of a game.
In closing, fuck the Bears and I’m glad I wasn’t one of the cliff-jumpers last week. If our offense figures their shit out, we are Super Bowl contenders. The Bears, they have a much longer road.
Shit talking Bear fans hit a brick wall after the Pack shit canned their asses.
It is kind of sad that it took 1 game into the regular season to figure out that Sam Shields is a better CB than Jarrett Bush and that Jerron McMillian is a better safety than MD Jennings.
Isn’t that what the preseason is for?
Nick Perry had a sore wrist, which limited his snaps, but I think the Packers will probably rotate at LOLB all season. Perry’s bull rush is more effective after Walden and Moses have used their speed rushes a couple times.
with those 4 OLBs (Clay, Perry, Walden & Moses) I think a rotation might work really well. Keep fresh legs opposite of Clay and we’ll be getting a lot of sacks. Daniels, raji & Worthy pushed the middle too, and that sure helps.
