(WSCR) — During his press conference at Halas Hall Monday, Bears Coach Lovie Smith said that the Packers game was not a ‘must’ win game.

“For us, yesterday’s game was a ‘must’ game for the NFC North championship,” said Smith. “It wasn’t a ‘must’ game as far as what can happen with our season.”

Smith has taken a different approach to next Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.

“This week we’re to that must game,” said Smith. “The tournament has begun for us.”

When asked about Brian Urlacher’s comments on WFLD where he stated “Two of the people I don’t care about: fans or media,” Smith said he hadn’t heard them.
