Bears-Packers one-liners

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler says he didn’t play very well and was out of synch despite Chicago’s 20-17 victory over Green Bay on Monday night.

An old formula did it for for the Bears: A Devin Hester return, a timely turnover, and just enough offense.

Bears DE Julius Peppers earned his money with a blocked field goal and a number of holding penalties drawn.

Bears LB Brian Urlacher likes Chicago’s new role: “We like being the underdog. Obviously, we’ve done well at it. I hope
people keep picking against us. It works out good for us when they do.
We’re going to play that role the whole year.”

Bears coach Lovie Smith benched CB Zack Bowman during the game:

Stop us if this problem seems familiar: The Packers tackles couldn’t hold up in pass protection.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel partly blames the loss on Packers coach Mike McCarthy’s decision to go with a spread offense all night.

The only thing that could slow down Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was cramps.

Charles Woodson on the decisive pass interference call against his teammate: “I mean, you can’t tell me that receiver didn’t put his hands on Morgan [Burnett].
And if you can tell that then maybe I’m a liar, but I don’t believe
that.”

Aaron Rodgers missed a key late third down throw, but otherwise was excellent.  Witness his sweet third-down touchdown run.

    Since when did the Packers start whining and crying and making excuses like a bunch of b1tch-as$ Biqueef fans?
    Have some self-respect, accept your losses, take ownership for your own role in it, and instead of belaboring all the what-if’s and if-only’s and it’s-not-fair’s, be a man about it, give yourself a comforting hug, blow the snot out, wipe the tears away, strap on a set of testicles, and move on.

    I dont want to sound like a hater, because the Bears won, they are 3-0 they are good and there’s no denying that….
    …but the last PI call that got picked by Collins is extremely flawed. A ball gets skyrocketed into the air, the DB is running towards the endzone, the WR notices the lame duck in the air and is forced to come back to the ball, towards the line of scrimmage….how are they not going to get tangled up? Just a dumb call.

    The Bears appear for real — opportunistic D and good special teams. For the Pack, too many mistakes, penalties and lousy special teams play. For a second there I thought Babre had snuck in to play for Sitton. The Pack’s one-dimensional offense could lead be problematic down the road, but Rodgers still looks awfully frigging good.

    ***************
    This is one call that refs have consistently called for years so there’s no questioning it. Unless the DB is watching the ball and makes a move to get to the ball, the WR will always get the benefit of doubt on contact, even if he has to go through the DB to get to the ball.
    This was no controversial judgement call. This call is made the same way 100% of the time. A veteran like Charles Woodson knows that so I don’t see why he is complaining about it.

    the pckers don’t even try to run and when they do they fail. what are they gonna do when the weather gets bad? keep playing spread offense and trying to pass thru the wind and cold?

    Robbie Gould kicked a field goal and Da BEARS win and are 3-0. All of the shoulda, coulda, woulda, and a buck will get you a cup of coffee somewhere.
    The Colts are 2-1 and Da BEARS are 3-0, both will be 12-4 and in the playoffs. All is right in the NFL.
    Now packer backers get over it and look to your next game.

    With the # of flags thrown against the Packers, it sure seemed like the ref’s wanted the Bears to win….much like they wanted the Bears to beat the Lions a couple of weeks ago. That’s 2 games given to them by the refs.

  13. VikesBlowHorn says: Sep 28, 2010 12:12 PM

    Any other team that plays as bad as we did last night gets blown out. We’ll be fine.

  14. jcarollo says: Sep 28, 2010 12:31 PM

    Go ahead Bear fans you all can finally come out of hibernation and enjoy your 3 blowout victories because it won’t last long and now you are all probably stuck with Lovie Smith for another year now. Who’s laughing now.

  15. Staley1920 says: Sep 28, 2010 12:39 PM

    All of the whining about the refs is amazing… if you were watching the Packers’ O Line last night, you’d know that there actually should have been a lot more holding calls. There were plays where Rodgers was on the move where they were actually tackling Bears pursuers. Nearly every down they had a hold of Peppers. It was the only way they could keep it together. That and all of the false starts were the result of the Packers’ line trying to get an edge on players that were outperforming them.
    As far as the PI against Morgan… he had his left arm wrapped around Bennett’s waist way before the ball got there. Good call. Period.

  16. Lwood says: Sep 28, 2010 12:58 PM

    @abucsfan…I realize you must be 12 years old, but Holding could have been called on 50% of the pass attempts….what flags that were thrown weren’t really penalties?
    I’ll hang up and wait for my answer….

  17. JohnGaltWho says: Sep 28, 2010 1:17 PM

    Bad call and all. The Packers deserved to lose. Will be a nice wake-up for em. They have nothing to fear from this Bears team. Bears will not even make the playoffs and will be third in the NFC North. It was a race to the bottom and the Packers won. Cutler looked like Cutler, throwing idiotic off balance jump balls into double coverage late in the game. Congratulations Bears – You turned a likely 1 and 2 into 3 and 0. The luck will run out and then, as they say in Miracle – Gentlemen, you don’t have enough talent to win on talent alone.

    ________________________________
    No, sucktard, last year in Chi expectations were through the roof, and the Bears totally sh1t the bed–lousy coaching, injuries, inconsistent QB play, porous defensive performances, etc.
    They were an utter disappointment last year–even to non-Bears fans who thought Cutler might do more, they were a let down, not a surprise. Not by any stretch.
    Hell, in pre-season, King Peter even picked them to go to the Super Bowl. Bears had record attendance at their training camps. The city buzzed–the media sheep all said a 3-way race in the North was likely.
    Everyone and their retarded cousin said, “With a decent defense and excellent ST, the Bears have always just needed a good QB–now they finally have one in Cutler…”
    So quit trying to be cute, quit over-reaching for quips, and stop micro-analyzing/nit-picking Urlacher’s comments.
    He’s right–Bears always have their best seasons when expectations are lowest (and their worst when expectations are highest). That’s been the pattern this decade, anyway.
    In 01, nothing was expected, Bears win division and home field (before Philly cheap-shotted them out).
    In 06, nothing was expected–Bears go to S.B.
    In 07, expectations through the roof–utter let down.
    09–see above.

    ____________
    That’s actually very accurate. Too bad we are looking primed and ready to beat ourselves several more times this year.
    McCarthy has had five years to instill some discipline into this team. He has failed. These penalties are nothing new. Also, the O-Line is a disaster. Has been for years. What’s McCarthy do about it? Promotes the OL coach to coordinator. The man is a QB guru, and an offensive mastermind, but he is NOT a head coach, and if he isn’t by now, he never will be.
    Ted has had SIX years to get more talent on the same line, and to build enough depth on defense so that we don’t have to start late-round (or in this case undrafted) rookies every time one of Sherman’s players gets hurt. He’s also had plenty of time to get us an RB that can, you know, run the ball. Jackson couldn’t start for most UFL teams. We all know this, we’ve all said it for years, so why in the name off all that is holy can Ted (a supposedly good talent evaluator) not figure it out?
    Here’s another thing most of us have said for years. Until Ted is gone, the Packers will not win anything except regular-season contests against mediocre teams. That was proven for the 43rd time yesterday. I’m sure Ted and his band of sheep still haven’t figured that out either though.

  21. RagnarTheBloodAxe says: Sep 28, 2010 2:48 PM

    I just have to comment that the Greg Olson TD was actually an incomplete pass if the same rule that was applied to the Calvin Johnson TD in the Bears Lions game also applies to a Bears Packers game.
    Olsen did not get up with the ball, therefore it is an incomplete pass regardless of how much moving he did while on the ground.
    Apparently the NFL is not applying the rules the same for all teams.

    ____________
    Yes Suck, when I said “band of sheep” that mostly meant you.
    Back with the “long term thinking” argument again already? What happened to you saying this would be the year? Now you want to except mediocrity for ten more?
    Grant is serviceable. Actually, he’s really pretty good. However, in case you haven’t noticed, he is out for the year, and now Jackson is starting, to the tune of consistent 2 yard runs.
    See, a good GM would have planned for this possibility. A decent GM would have at least made a trade and fixed the issue once it arose. The likes of Ted and Millen, however, would do neither. And then they would lose games.
    You are everything that is wrong in Green Bay. People like you that can’t remember what winning that last title was like, and therefore don’t have the desire to see another one. Without you and the small minority you represent, perennial failures would never be accepted, and by extension, Ted would have been out on his ear years ago.

    Lets see bring some guy off to street and give up players or even worse draft picks for some guy sitting on another teams bench vs. 4 Year vet Brandon Jackson and Kuhn to split halfback duties. Pretty easy to figure out. Stick with what you have and get their previous role (backup) cheaply elsewhere.

    BeerCheese is back off the bandwagon after a week. Well nice seeing you for awhile bro, and you can go back to cheering for the team that has two or three starter-quality players at every position. A blocked FG, giving up a TD on a punt return, 2,000 penalties and we still could have won the frickin’ game. I’m not going to panic just yet. Congratulations to the Bears; they seem to be destiny’s darlings right now but there’s a long way to go.

    You sound like a Viking fan.
    There is RB talent on some other teams’ benches. There is absolutely none on our roster. Jackson is maybe a backup in the UFL. Kuhn isn’t even a HB!!
    Stick with what you have=the mantra of the Ted regime. Thankfully, his successful track record and number of league titles speak for themsel.. Oh, oh wait. Oh dear…

    Huh?
    I’m still on the Packers wagon and will be for life.
    I am not, however, on the Ted bandwagon. Despite what the aptly named Super Suck will tell you, there is a difference.
    I haven’t been a Ted fan for five years, I never again will be, barring a Packers Super Bowl run, which is.. ha, haha, haha.. Well, you get the idea.
    I don’t flip-flop. I’ve said the same things all along, and I’ve been right up to this point. Sadly, none of you can seem to realize that. I’ve been saying it’s a matter of time before the truth hits you all in the face, but that has already happened a few times and you are all still too dense to accept basic facts.
    I’m not panicking either, merely pointing out the obvious once again. There is a lot of season left. You’re right that we were still in the game despite playing like we did.. Too bad that counts for nothing. A win is a win is a win, and that, in case you didn’t notice, was not a win.

  33. GrandsoOfCoach says: Sep 30, 2010 1:28 AM

    If the Pack hadn’t had 18 penalties, lost a fumble on the potential game winning drive, allowed a punt return TD, allowed a FG to be blocked, had points taken off the board because of holding, and had an interception taken away because of an inadvertent helmet to the head of Cutler (right call there)…I’d be more incline to argue that the last pass interference on a severely underthrown ball was a questionable call. The receiver stopped, and the CB couldn’t do anything different other than run into him and try to turn to the ball. But it was not THE reason they lost.
    I’m actually more concerned about a stupid TD reversal in the week 1 Bears/Lions game on a very contrived possession rule that could play heavily into who wins the division. In a tight race that one extra Bears win could be the difference.

    I’m a stone-cold Patriots fan, but I cant help but read the comments posted back and forth between Bears and Packers fans. Packers fans are pissed because they beat the Bears in every way possible on Monday, except for the scoreboard. So of course they are going to blame someone, and I can honestly see how some of them are blaming the refs. 3 back to back false starts calls on Chad Clifton, and 11 year veteran, on the Packers one-yard line. Haha the refs literally back the ball up 3 inches every time. You wont see something like that happen again. The BEST part about this all, is that this lucky miracle of a win for the Bears, has actually given their fans hope. And every fan knows the entire team is garbage, so the only defense they have right now is, “we’re 3-0″. Ha! You need to look closer at that record Bears fans, because “3-0″, does in fact mean…it’s only week 3. Bears will not make the play-offs. They will be lucky to finish 3rd in the NFC North. But its ok!!!! They are undefeated!!! YEAH! 3-0! Super Bowl!!! (I really shouldn’t have to do this, but by the apparent ignorance of most Bears fans, starting with “But its ok!!!” and on, is something people in the real world call sarcasm.) P.S. Bears will be 3-1 after Sunday. Giants will come alive and exploit the worthless individuals dressed like each other which Chicago calls a “football team”.

    I just have to comment that the Greg Olson TD was actually an incomplete pass if the same rule that was applied to the Calvin Johnson TD in the Bears Lions game also applies to a Bears Packers game.
    Olsen did not get up with the ball, therefore it is an incomplete pass regardless of how much moving he did while on the ground.
    Apparently the NFL is not applying the rules the same for all teams.
    ————————————————————-
    You’re an idiot. If you knew the rules, you never would have said that. Or maybe you do know the rules and just felt like random typing. Greg Olson caught the ball before entering the endzone. Once he did that, all he had to do was break line. He did that untouched.
    There you go wise one. Try a little harder next time.
