With the bitter taste of a loss still fresh in their mouths, the weekend where Chicago plays its biggest rival, the Green Bay Packers, come again.
But Sunday, September 25th is a new day at Soldier Field because the Bears playing ground is lined with newly laid sod. It's an old cliche, but on any given day anything can happen. It’s football!
In spite of statistics like Cutler having a sixty-two percent chance of throwing one interception this game; as compared to Aaron Rodgers passer rating of 99.
The Packers have a sixty-seven percent chance of winning according to the Accuscore. Cutler also has been sacked eleven times through two games this season, according to ESPNChicago.com.
The Bears can win this week in spite of injuries to Gabe Carimi, wide receiver Earl Bennett, and a beat up quarterback with a sore throat, Jay Cutler.
As said by defensive tackle, Anthony Adams, about Green Bay, “They do all the simple things well. I don’t think they ask their offensive line to do anything spectacular. They just go out, and they play the offense the way they want then to play it. Like I said they do a lot of repetitions of the smallest things and that’s what makes them so good.” Even quarterback Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers thinks it’s anybody’s game. “The team that makes the least amount of mistakes is going to win,” he stated.
Whatever the Bears players lack in size, speed, and skill, they need to play with their intelligence. Each player has to be confident in their knowledge of the basic game of football, which they all have. Re-signing a very frustrated Matt Forte would be a positive for the Bears, being he was the only thing positive the offense had during the game against the Saints last Sunday.
If all else fails, the Bears could blatantly and simultaneously, fall to the ground in faked injuries, and then regroup. Lets hope it does not have to come to that.
