There’s something frightful to opposing head coaches and fans when New England’s Bill Belichick and Tom Brady put their heads together at a crucial moment in a game.
190 total yards in the biggest game of the season. That just about says it all.
Despite those holding out for an inspired, season-saving turn at home against their overly-professed enemy, we got a wholly recognizable, ordinary performance and an entirely probable outcome.
Since the Bears traded for Cutler before the 2009 season, Lovie Smith’s overall record is 34-27 for a winning percentage of .557, which is actually a drop off compared to his 45-35 record (.563) B.C. (Before Cutler).
How such numbers factor into the Bears’ decision about whether to bring Smith back for 2013 isn’t known, but what’s clear is how Smith’s career record looks under a magnifying glass. Not good.
In a span of five days, we’ve already witnessed the good, the bad, and the ugly of a football season. It’s not unusual.
It’s not often that the Bears get caught off guard by a huge special teams play from their opponent, but that’s exactly what happened in Thursday night’s 23-10 loss to the Packers.
The Packers are going to be introduced to a different offensive beast Thursday night in Green Bay.
As powerful as the offense was last season when the Packers rolled to a 15-1 record, head coach Mike McCarthy suffered as he watched his defense give up big play after big play and touchdown after touchdown.
Divers have recovered the body of the Green Bay Packers’ offensive coordinator’s son from an icy Wisconsin River, but police said Tuesday they do not suspect foul play.
Lovie Smith and Jerry Angelo can make all the noise they want about beating the archrival Packers this week and it is nothing more than gum flapping.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy says wide receiver Greg Jennings will miss two to three weeks with a knee sprain but is expected back for the playoffs.
That gurgling sound coming from the shores of Lake Michigan? That’s Lovie Smith starting to drown. When you lose Jay Cutler and Matt Forte two weeks later, it’s an uphill battle for even the best coaches.
While most Chicago Bears’ fans tried their best to avoid Green Bay Packers’ fans on Monday. But there was one Bears’ fan who had a phone call to make.
He turned a loyal fandom against itself, just because he could.
Super Bowl XLV kicks off Sunday between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers. With nine Super Bowl titles between the two teams, you can bet this will be an intense game.
The Chicago Bears took care of the Seattle Seahawks in impressive fashion, but they’re not the only team playing in the NFC Championship who’s been playing well lately.
The Chicago Bears seemingly have nothing to play for. The Green Bay Packers aren’t nearly as fortunate.
Not as if the Bears-Packers rivalry needs any more intensity, but if the Packers were to beat the Bears on Sunday they would clinch a spot in the playoffs.
The Bears may have lost to the Patriots’ at home on Sunday, but that loss was minimized when the Green Bay Packers lost on the road in Detroit. If the Packers had won they would have pulled into a tie with the Bears. However, the Lions got their first division with since 2007, and the Bears are still in first place.
