Chicago Bears vs. Packers, it’s that time again yet I’ve lost faith in my Bears. I know, they aren’t as bad as the Bucs, or the Raiders, or the Jaguars but they were supposed to be better than 3-5 at mid season. How do you lose 3 games at home? All 3 games at home. The Bills? Yes, they have a great defense. One of the top rated defenses in the NFL. But you don’t lose on opening day to them. And the Dolphins? That was just pathetic to lose to the Dolphins at home. Then there was the Packers. Oh yes, the hated Packers, who happen to be this weeks opponent.
I understand that Jay Cutler and our beloved Bears haven’t been the greatest against the Packers, and that needs to stop. I might not have been the biggest Lovie Smith fan, but he at least made it a point to state that his first goal was to beat the Packers. Thank you Lovie Smith. You understood what it meant to Bears fans to beat the Packers. I’m sick and tired of the Bears getting their butts kicked by the green and gold from up north. When Marc Trestman was introduced as head coach, the one thing he never mentioned was beating the Packers. I don’t think I have ever heard him speak of the rivalry between the Bears and the Packers. You know what? That pisses me off.
I really hate the Packers. It did not make me happy to see them win the Super Bowl in 2010. Especially after they came into Soldier Field and beat the Bears in the NFC Championship game. I didn’t even want to watch the Super Bowl that year, but I figured watching the Steelers beat the Packers would make me feel good. Well, that didn’t happen, and honestly, I don’t know how. The Packers had injuries pile up on them all year long including in the Super Bowl, yet they won anyway. I may seem like I am rambling, which I am, but I do have a point. The point is that the Bears have had the excuse of injuries year after year and I am getting sick and tired of it. If the Packers can overcome all of those injuries and win a Super Bowl, then there is no reason that the Bears can’t do the same. But you know what? I don’t believe the Bears can do it. Not any more at least. I have lost faith and it sucks.
This week we did a little smack talking with Josh McPeak from Lombardi Ave, the Fansided site for the Green Bay Packers. It is really hard to smack talk when your team is playing like crap and you have no confidence in them beating their opponent.
