The Green Bay Packers do not have to play this Sunday. That is a good thing as quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be able to get some extra rest before the Packers begin their run toward the Super Bowl. They will host one of three teams in the Divisional Round. Their opponent will be determined by the outcome of the Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys game.
The Bears’ coaching search is expected to heat up this week as many of Phil Emery’s candidates were eliminated from the playoffs over the weekend.
Happy New Year. Let’s be honest—2012 really sucked for Chicago sports.

Bears general manager Phil Emery has another name on his list of head coaching candidates.

As Bears general manager Phil Emery begins his search to find Lovie Smith’s replacement, he’ll do so by interviewing Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements.
