Green Bay and Chicago. Aaron Rodgers is back and he looks like a kid in a candy store. If that energy will transfer to the game is another question. This won’t be a matchup for the ages. Both the Bears and Packers defenses stink. It could be a shootout with Cutler and Rodgers.
Back to the preview of the Game. Four things to watch.
1.Aaron Rodgers: McCarthy says Rodgers looks good. I remember Favre when he was excited. Holmgren would tell Favre “no more rocket balls.” I think that Rodgers will be throwing some rocket balls in the first quarter. Let’s hope he settles down and give us a chance to win the game.
2.Run game: Bears worst rush defense against Lacy. Lacy has a bum ankle and could cause issues with the run game. Starks will need to fill in when needed, and make a difference.
3.Packers Offensive Line: Our offensive line has to play a great game. Rodgers cannot be hit, Lacy must get lanes to run in. The offensive line needs to dominate or this game could be over quickly.
4.Perry and Burnett- These are the two players that have to step up. Perry is in Matthews spot. He has to attack Cutler and knock him around. Burnett needs to take on the Bears physical receivers and take them out of the game.
My final thoughts are that the Packers should win this game. I think it will a hard fought game. In the end the Packers have too much firepower. Packers 31-17 Bears.
