Bears Beat Packers 20-17, Take Early Control of NFC

The Bears are the last undefeated team in the NFC and have taken early control of the conference with a 20-17 win over the Packers.  Check out the highlights from here.

A couple of quick notes before I completely crash and burn:

  • Game Ball #1 to the Special Teams unit.  Didn’t I say they needed to be special in my pre-game notes? Welcome back Devin Hester!  And  a Julius Peppers blocked FG to boot!  Nice job guys!
  • Game Ball #2 to Jay Cutler because he gets his ass kicked over and over again and keeps getting back up.  It wasn’t pretty, but it got the job done.
  • Brian Urlacher played big and when it mattered most, got the crucial strip to set up the winning field goal. Welcome back!
  • Thank you to the Packers for committing 18 penalties for 152 yards.  When you eek out a 3 point win, every little bit helps.

Plenty more coverage from the entire Bear Goggles On team on a Bears victory Tuesday.

    The ghost of Dick Jauron is haunting us again…. can’t keep “winning” games that you get outplayed in. Remember, Dick entered soldier field 13-3 and Philly laid the wood on us in the playoffs.

    And what is with all the “benchings”? Bowman, Aroshmado, Harris? Suddenly Lovie is hyper concerned with performance?

    This administration needs to be blown out.

    The headlines today read “Better to be Lucky than good”… until the playoffs.

    Great win, but I’m not so sure about the game ball to Cutler. There were a number of passes that would have been interceptions if the Pack hadn’t messed up. I don’t think we can keep up winning this way…

    But 3-0 feels pretty good!

      My game ball to Cutler goes primarily on the basis of getting his ass whooped and coming back for more.
