Game Day: Packers Visit the Chicago Bears

Ahhhhh yes, the blowhard city of Chicago. They don’t put ketchup on their hotdogs, which I respect, but they can’t field a respectable QB to save their lives. They throw together some tomato soup and call it pizza. It’s a travesty.

    Once again, I have come to you with news of server woes. Rob’s latest post and some comments were pulled into the void, however, they did not go into the light. They should be functioning now.

    This site depends on a lot of various open source software working in unison. Occasionally, a bug fix or security patch for just one piece of the puzzle can throw things off for all the rest. Hopefully, this is sorted now and the server is also on a much faster system than before.

    GAME DAY 1st quarter game observations…..
    .
    1) Josh Meyers hurt (shocking)
    2) Mack comes in almost unblocked for sack (shocking)
    3) Packers punt…Shemar Jean-Charles stands next to the bears punt returner waiting for him to catch the ball, he catches the ball and Jean-Charles stands there looking at him, until he takes off
    Bear punt returner runs for 15 yards, leaving Jean Charles wondering if Walmart is hiring.
    4) Isaac Yiadom is playing outstanding….Thanks Gute (talent evaluator extraordinaire)
    5) 8 plays..4:24…Bear TD
    6 ) Quinn..sack…beats Jenkins
    7) Packers 3 n out
    8) Bears 7-0…. I’ll wait for the comeback :)

    Again, I was looking for Ron Zook on the sidelines. How much rope does the Special Teams Coordinator get? They look bad in the ST unit.

    In the end they are finding ways to get it done week to week but this is not a team that looks like someone’s odds on favorite to be a Super Bowl contender. Right now this feels like a fingers crossed operation that is doing a bunch of things just right enough to get it done based on who they are facing. Hats off to those who are making this happen, coaches and players.

    But hey, it is the NFL. Upsets happen, surprises happen, injuries happen, and most anything can happen to any team. Keep it going. 5-1 is very damn good right now.

      Slocum, Zook, Mennenga and now Drayton. For a decade, the STs’ can’t put it together. I mean, how hard is it to teach blocking and tackling? Sure, strategy is key and differs from game to game but, the real eyesore is fundamentals. I hear ya Mitch, and agree with your points. Injuries this season is really taxing the squad. Gotta admit that the last 4 games, this team has fared well against some good defenses; considering all the backups that have been put to the test both on offense and defense. However, 3 more starters were lost today a/c injury and the depth is getting real thin.

    Nice game by Clark again. Several starters on D out; however, GB wins by 10 going away.
    .
    When Bak is back to form, do you move Jenkins to guard or RT? The potential is there to improve 3 OL spots — 1) BAK –> LT; 2) Jenkins from LT to LG or RT; 3) displaced guy by Jenkins displaces the RG rookie.

    Wasn’t some blowhard constantly whining that Rodgers gives Adams and Cobb too many targets?
    .
    “And one just happens to be in a contract year wanting 27 million per season. You don’t get that kind of coin with a mere 5 to 7 targets a game. You’ve got to be targeted 15 to 20 times a game to get that kind of scratch. And fuck the game plan! Not to worry Davante, Aaron Rodgers has got your back” – Blowhard
    .
    ” So how many targets will Davante have tomorrow? 15? 20?” – Blowhard
    .
    “When you target Adams 15 to 18 times a game and Cobb another 5 to 7. That doesn’t leave much for either Tonyan or Lazard.” – Blowhard
    .
    Packers vs Bears..
    Davante Adams = 4 catches 89 yards…5 targets….I’ll repeat…5 TARGETS
    .
    Randall Cobb = 0 catches…0 targets
    .
    Tommi….put your thumb back in your mouth and quit your fucking crying, at least for a week…ok?

    Jones and Dillon are getting the most touches the past few games — both are very effective run or pass. Nice to see Dillon finish off the games with some hard nose runs.

    TJ Watt won’t let Packer fans forget about him. Or it could be just me i guess.
    .
    That guy is a machine.
    .
    A hometown product, we could have scouted at UWM with a half day and a few gallons of gas.
    .
    I bring him up, because he won’t let me forget, or the Seahawks for that matter.
    .
    The 30th pick in the 2017 draft was a game changer again tonight.
    .
    2 sacks, 6 solo tackles, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and 3 passes defended, and 3 TFL.
    THAT’S IN 1 GAME!!
    .
    Since 2017…186 solo tackles, 56.5 sacks, 20 forced fumbles, 4 interceptions.
    .
    2x First Team All-Pro
    3x Pro Bowl
    DROY (AFC)
    Sack leader (2020)
    .
    Not bad for the 30th pick in the draft.
    .
    Stats….win ball games…just ask Seattle.

    So you have bad ST but you keep making that short kick offs which almost every team brings it almost every time beyond 25 yards and often beyond 30. I don’t get that.

      Ya, I’ve noticed Crosbys’ leg strength is declining on kickoffs which puts additional stress on the STs coverage units. Drayton has mentioned that his STs are close. My question is;;;;;; close to what? Hats off to K. Clark and Lowery, both had nice games against Da Bears.

    I thought Rodgers HAD to throw to Adams and Cobb because they were the only receivers who could get open? Yet somehow, someway, he was able to throw to Tonyan and Lazard against the Bears. Could it be because the Bears defense largely took away Adams? We ran the ball and Rodgers spread the ball around. That’s what it’s going to take to beat the good teams. Especially when your starting a rookie CB on one side and a practice squad player on the other. Good QB’s will light up this secondary like a Christmas tree. And it’s going to take a balanced attack to even remotely have a chance.

      Good point. Every team in the league knows #12 likes to go to either Adams or Jones. Some teams can take those 2 out and that forces #12 to adjust. Which isn’t a bad thing considering the Pack is 6 and 0 when Adams is on the sideline with an injury. Adams is dynamic, but when he is double-teamed; you gotta improvise. Quite often, other receivers are open when #12 is trying to squeeze in a pass to a double-covered Adams. On a different note, it was nice to see they ran the ball effectively against a good Bears defense.

        GB has been getting awesome production from Jones and Dillon the past three games — 550 yards with run & pass. It was nice to see against a very good defense like da Bears. My point is that the running game is improving week by week as the young line develops. Both RBs are interchangeable — while each has different strengths.
        .
        Getting MVS back will help out more as teams will want to stop the run with a safety but be also try to stop Adams and prevent MVS from blowing the top off the D. Getting Bak back will allow more time to go long to MVS.

          The Bears took away Adams…Princess says…lol
          .
          Yea..he had only 89 yards on 4 catches for a 22.5 yard average on 5 targets.
          .
          What Princess doesn’t understand, because….he can’t help it.
          .
          Is that passing wasn’t a big part of the game plan.
          Last week Rodgers threw the ball 39 times on the Bengals, against 22 run plays
          .
          Against the Bears he threw 23 times, against 31 rushing attempts.
          Smart people know there was a contrast in game plans, and that Rodgers executed both at a high level.
          .
          Princess Tommi would have you puppets believe that Rodgers never follows MLF’s game plan, that he just does what he wants regardless, all the time. Only looking out for Cobb and Adams.
          Why?….Because Tommi is an obsessive blowhard.
          .
          Now he’s wrong…AGAIN, so he tries to spin it..AGAIN….but he can’t.

    TJ, the machine,Watts did virtually nothing against our third string left tackle two weeks ago. He’s been forgotten except for PF4L and Ferris who like to live in the past. He’ll be home come January counting his money. But did you happen to see Seattle’s team captains that went out for the critical OT coin toss? It was their third string QB and Russel Wilson who didn’t play a down. Yes, that’s just how important team captains are. Trotting out a couple of guys that aren’t even active. Let’s not tell ZaDarius Smith or PF4L.

    Players win games not stats. Mason Crosby had a piss poor stat line against Cincinnati. Yet he still kicked the game winner. Russell Wilson plays that game Sunday night and TJ Watt is an afterthought in a Pittsburgh loss. Chicago did what any good defense would do. Took away Davante Adams. Forcing your hero to throw elsewhere and run the ball. Justin Fields INT in the end zone reminded me of Jordan Love’s INT in the end zone against Buffalo in the preseason. It’s what rookies do. Still it was a one score game midway thru the 4th quarter. There will be no end zone INT’s when playing Kyler Murray, Matthew Stafford, Russell Wilson, Lamar Jackson, and Kirk Cousins in the coming weeks. Against a Packer secondary that starts a rookie and a practice squad player as it’s corners. Aaron Rodgers will have to play great to win. Being a stat whore doesn’t help. He’ll have to put up more than 24 points to even have a chance.

      Translation…….
      .
      Crosby had an off day, but still kicked a game winning field goal
      QB’s can have an off day going 0-4 in the red zone, but then on the 5th try, complete a game winning TD pass.
      YAY!!
      .
      Is there a point in any of that Princess?
      Oh yea….stats don’t matter.
      They don’t matter so much, that millions are spent compiling them, and teams and the public pay a ton of cash to acquire them.
      And millions of fans, discuss them.
      But…real men don’t use stats because…..Princess said so….

      Did they take away…everyone?
      Because no one had more than 5 targets.
      It wasn’t the game plan, the bears didn’t force anything.
      The Packers know the O line is suspect and what pressure the bears can bring….rock head.
      The game plan didn’t deviate from the first snap ….snapper head.
