Bears players and fans know that the whole world is against us this week. Seems everyone in the world believes the Bears don’t have a chance to stop the juggernaut that is the 2010 Packers. So it was refreshing to see the following comment from a Packer fan on www.profootballtalk.com on the post Let the Buildup Begin:
As excited as I was Saturday night that excitement was gone by Sunday morning. Let’s not forget who we have to play on Sunday and where. That Chicago defense is a menace and their going to have their home crowd to juice them up. Our defense can cause havoc as well but Cutler will have the luxury of operating a Mike Martz offense in the equivalent of NFL silence. Their base 4-3 gave us fits in week 17. You can throw out the tape for week 3 because these are two totally different teams now. Notice I said their base 4-3. They didn’t do much of anything to pressure rodgers with anyone else. They didn’t need to. They dropped seven and got good pressure on Arod with their front four. The best way to attack a cover 2 is to run and have success. Well teams dont run on the feckin bears and teams that have no running game certainly dont. This isnt Philadelphia. This isnt a 70 degree dome. This week is absolutely not a given and I honestly cannot believe they are favored. I promise you scoring 10 points at home 2 weeks ago against this team will not be good enough in that hostile spaceship. Wind will wreck havoc on our passing game so lets pray there isnt much. Special teams matchups?? Thats laughable. Curb your enthusiasm. These players need to be humbled some.
Thanks “supersuckers3″ for at least giving the Bears a shot to step on the same field with the Packers.
And another from “sprtsfan1″ that points out it is the Packer fans that are showing little class in giving the Bears zero chance:
Anybody who is talking trash thinking their team is going to run away with this game is an ignorant fool. The Pack is good all around , there’s no denying that. The Bears are good as well, that’s the only way they can get to this level. The Pack only scored 10 points on the Bears when they were playing for their lives and the Bears were playing for nothing. This is going to be an epic game. Could go either way, but I give the slight edge to the Packers for their Offensive prowess, but I’m hoping the Bears pull this one out just because Packers fans are acting like complete jack asses. If you really think you will blow out the Bears, you didn’t watch the two games you played against them this year.
And finally, “Jimmysee” sums up the way I also feel about this game (other than Go Pack Go of course):
I’m a lifelong Packers fan — sold hot dogs at Packers games at County Stadium in the 60′s.
I have no idea who is going to win this epic match-up.
And truth be told, if the Bears walk away winners, I’ll say “good going” and be cheering for them big time in the Super Bowl.
Go Pack Go!
Nobody in the world but us will give the Bears a chance. Packer defensive lineman B.J. Raji told the Chicago Tribune this morning that he thinks the Bears offensive line (stinks). I know Bears players are taking note of all this.
UPDATE: I might as well start a thread dedicated to the Packers dissing the Bears. Here’s a tweet from Ryan Grant, injured Packers running back:
“Pack Fans might want 2 start booking flights 4 feb. Not looking ahead but u c we just have better players than other teams.”
Keep the slights coming, Packers.
