Packers beat Bears, head to Philadelphia

Green Bay Packers v Pittsburgh Steelers Getty Images

The Green Bay Packers are in the playoffs, and they’ve got a date with the Eagles in Philadelphia next weekend.

The Packers’ 10-3 win over the Bears today clinches the No. 6 playoff seed for Green Bay. It also knocks the Giants and Buccaneers out of the playoff race.

It wasn’t easy for Green Bay: The Bears, despite already having the No. 2 seed locked up before kickoff, decided to play their starters for the whole game, and the Chicago defense frustrated the Green Bay offense all day.

But the Packers’ defense was even harder on the Bears’ offense. The Packers were all over Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler, who finished the day completing 21 of 39 passes for 168 yards, with no touchdowns, two interceptions and a 43.5 passer rating. The Packers also sacked Cutler six times, and it was surprising that Bears coach Lovie Smith left his quarterback in the game as he took a brutal beating.

Ultimately, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made the big plays when he needed to, hitting Greg Jennings on a beautiful 46-yard pass in the fourth quarter and then hitting Donald Lee in the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown on the next play.

So now the Packers live to play another week, against Michael Vick and Co. And the Bears lick their wounds and prepare for a home playoff game in two weeks.

    And somewhere a broken down Brat Favre is weeping uncontrollably by himself in the corner of a hotel room.

    God I hope Philly can play better against the Packers than they did against the Vikes!

    Hats off to Green Bay and to Lovie Smith for playing his starters the whole game and honoring the rivalry.

  4. txbearmeat says: Jan 2, 2011 7:24 PM

    I’m glad Lovie played his starters all game, because he allowed GB to prove they are the better team.

    I hope GB gets a chance to put the nail in the Bears coffin in 3 weeks.

    GO PACK!!

  5. gbfanforever says: Jan 2, 2011 7:25 PM

    I don’t love the idea of playing at philly but this packer team can win on the road and its definitely a winnable game. Way to go Pack!

    Bring it on. You’ll need a running game this time.

    One has to wonder why McCarthy can’t put up points on Chicago, yet New England and the Jets have no problem hanging 30+ each on Da Bearz.

    McCarthy is his own worst enemy. But, he goes up against another big game choker in Reid next week, so that should be interesting.

    They squeak out a win against a Bears team that had nothing to play for, at home no less, and it “proves” GB is the better team?

    Da Bears put 7 points on the Pats…38 on the Jets…yet they could only manage 3 on the Pack?!

    Only against the Packers/Giants were Da Bears managed to put only 3 points on the board.

    Allow me to be the first Bear fan to get on here and congratulate the Packers on a deserved victory. No excuses, we got beat playing our starters the whole way. Well take the season split, the division championship, and the BYE. Good luck in Philly!

    Funny how the poster team of the NFL wins this game because of the poor officiating.

    So the official can’t see Charlie Peprah holding Johnny Knox in the endzone on 3rd down which would have given the Bears a 1st and goal from the 1 yard line and instead of to settle for a FG, but they are sure quick to throw the flag when Peppers has a clean and legal hit on Rodgers which gives that cross eyed homely bastard a first down.

    Come on, the SB trophy is named after a Packers legend. Like that team is not favored? They should be called the Green Bay Black Rhinos. I wish nothing but bad things on that team, they deserve nothing more, and surely nothing less.

  14. gbfanforever says: Jan 2, 2011 7:45 PM

    One has to wonder why the Bears gave up +30 against the jets while the packers shut them out. Whats your point?

  15. VikesPrincess (Lisa) says: Jan 2, 2011 7:48 PM

    The offense wasn’t too potent today. That doesn’t bode well for the next game, especially since the Eagles starters were mostly resting today.

  16. kennyrogerschicken says: Jan 2, 2011 7:49 PM

    The Packers D versus a gimpy QB who can’t read a blitz? Philly better hope McCoy has a huge game, and hope Rodgers has another mediocre one.

  17. 12thstreetcompanies says: Jan 2, 2011 7:53 PM

    Anyway you look at this tournament (NFC Playoff Bracket) it’s really “Any Given Sunday” football.

    There is no dominating team, Atlanta is probably the strongest but any of these teams can end up in the Super Bowl.

    This should be the bracket to watch, it will be exciting and filled with drama.

    The AFC representative, which I will say now is in a preemptive prediction is the Patriots.

    Look for Rex Ryan to fill sound bites all week but in the end he will lose to the Colts and the from there on…Game ON!

    See you all next week!

    Wow, Erin Rogers can do no wrong. When he’s good, everyone drools all over him. And when he does nothing, like today, they say “Oh he came through and was beautiful when it counted”. The Peck has been the most overrated team in the NFL the last 2 years (except for maybe the Cowboys). Chicago had nothing to play for. Trust me, the Peck will not even come close to the Super Bowl.

    Typical bitter response from the losing team. “The Peck”…. I don’t get it? Is that supposed to be a knock on the Pack? Clever.

    All that matters is the Packers back in the Playoffs!!! Against all odds and injuries they find a way to win when it counted. Philly will be tough but it is Awesome to be in the hunt!

  21. mountaindont says: Jan 2, 2011 8:29 PM

    My thanks to a great NFL quarterback, one who will never be forgotten by Packer fans, who will always be able to look back on a great career with the Green Bay Packers, Super Bowl victory and a lot of other great memories…

    …cheers to Bart Starr!

Oh, I don’t even know what else to say to you except thank you for the great post! So original and genius. You should move to Vegas and bet on games.

  25. dirksimmons says: Jan 2, 2011 8:51 PM

    Tough game played by both. Of course every Packer fan in the country will come out of the woodwork, boasting how this win proves they were the more dominant team all along. The truth of the matter is that only a few plays contributed to the outcome of this game.

    As a Giants fan, I had to root for the Bears today. But the Packers earned their way in. With all the injuries this team has had this year, they still won when they had to.

    Congrats to GB and their fans. Now go stomp out Philly!

  29. bigbear12 says: Jan 2, 2011 9:22 PM

    Crowd noise was a big factor, Bears wasted timeouts trying to deal with it and came close to anfew delay of game calls. Pack won a fist fight but the crowd will be on our side if the Pack are lucky enough for a rematch.

    I am perplexed as to how the Bears plan on winning the Super Bowl (as everyone here in Chicago has been convinced they will) when they can’t even beat the #6 seed?

    Cutler looks like a middle-aged lesbian.

  32. tprt2 says: Jan 2, 2011 9:35 PM

    stixzidinia

    Surely, you jest!

    The year after Favre left, Rodgers & Mac won 6 games. You actually believe Rodgers – even one year earlier than the year he managed just 6 wins – was going to lead his team to a 13-3 record and an NFCCG appearance in which his coach managed to run the ball for a whopping 27 yards the ENTIRE GAME?

    Just remember which of the three has (2) Super Bowl appearances and a Super Bowl ring.

    We all appreciate what Rodgers has done and maybe not so much what Mac has done. However, don’t let that could your ability to submit a reasonable argument.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Now this is some typical Packer revisionist history right here. Ever since Favre went to the Vikings, Packer fans have done nothing but rip him and call him a choke artist, conveniently forgetting that he took that team from 20 years of complete irrelevancy to a team that some people like to talk about.

    Football is a team sport. If there are 60 to 70 plays in the typical game, to choose 1/60th or 1/70th of the game and lay a loss on one person’s shoulders is stupid.

    If the entire team had performed well enough to win decisively in regulation, Favre wouldn’t have been forced to throw that ball. The same could be said about last year’s NFCCG.

    Use logic, man. Holding onto blind hatred because Favre wanted to keep playing, and found a spot with the Vikings, is ridiculous.

    Wow. Wow…WOW. The Bears are TERRIBLE. THAT’S A PLAYOFF TEAM????

    What a joke!!! 3 points and they played their starters.

    Luckily I’m a fan of an AFC (i.e. super bowl contender) team so I have nothing to worry about.

    But I personally HOPE the BEARS make the Super Bowl so I can watch them get whipped.

    What a joke!!!! And you Bears fans actually think this team is GOOD???!!!

    On the other hand the one team I hope we don’t face is the Packers. Great QB, great coach, great linebackers.

    ————————

    1) football is a team sport. Rodgers had his team holding the lead in numerous games in the 4th quarter but a porous defense always pissed it away.

    2) No Qb in the NFL scored more 4th quarter points in 2008 than Rodgers.

    3) Favre didn’t get to a 13-3 record, the Green Bay Packers did. Again, that team sport concept that lifelong armchair QB’s like you can never seem to grasp.

    But hey, I realize you’re jealous that the Packers are set with a top tier QB for years to come instead of being saddled with a broken down over-rated career choke artist who lost more big games than he ever won (#4).

    Wow… you don’t even see how you contradicted yourself, do you? So faver made the Packers but the vikings failure was a team failure? Which is it: team or faver?

    Face it: minny rolled the dice on a drama queen that the Packers were smart enough to rid of. And it bit them in the ass!

    News flash: Mike Holmgren and Ron Wolf made brett faver. The Super Bowl win was more about special teams and Reggie White.

    Ugh…QueensPrincess what the hell are you talking about? The guy just called Favre a choke artist. Thats it. I agree. You must be so bored with your team’s performance that you felt compelled to come here and write a novel about how Packers fans hatred for Favre is ridiculous. Guess what? We ALL hate him and that will never change. Keep sticking up for the Old Pervert!!!

  40. bighairyman says: Jan 2, 2011 11:10 PM

    At least the Pack doesn’t have to play the Bears again (for a couple games at least). For some reason that defense gives the Packers offense fits. Rodgers should be able to light up that Philly defense next week. Hopefully Jenkins, Bigby, and Zombo are back also.

  41. beefbus says: Jan 3, 2011 12:23 AM

    The word is that Martz held back quite a bit of plays as not to give their next opponent new game film.

    Again, the Bears had nothing to play for and played with great passion. The Packers got held in check with motivation on their side.

    So, I thought the Packers would blow out the Bears. Guess not.

  42. emperorzero says: Jan 3, 2011 12:33 AM

    The Packers struggle against anyone with a very good front four – it was a Christmas Miracle (and the Giants) that they beat New York. Green Bay can beat any team on any given Sunday, but without a running game and an iffy special teams, I don’t see how they can win three playoff games after having had to play playoff football the past two weeks. McCarthy needs to game plan like he did against New England and the New York Giants and not like he did against Detroit and Chicago.

    And congrats to the Bears for winning the division. They deserved it and until Green Bay beats them in the playoffs, they are the better team.

  43. innoculo says: Jan 3, 2011 1:51 AM

    I understand why Lovie tried to knock the Pack out of the Playoffs. If he let the Packers slide in uncontested and then the Packers came back and knocked the Bears out of the playoffs (which is all too possible, with low scoring D battles) it would be his ass. He’d be run out of town.

    Still, good game. Both Defenses are awesome! I think the Pack has the edge on Offense though simple due to Rodgers being more careful with the ball and overall better receivers. Running game, not so much.

    Both teams O-lines are suspect which bodes ill for any deep playoff run for either team.

    GB special teams finally showed up for once which was a major factor is beating the bears as it prevented the Bears from starting in the typically good field position they are used to against the Pack.

    Oh yeah, Brett Farve retired today…… if anybody cares.

    Great game…I love close battles where defense reigns. Congrats to GB and kudos to the Bears for playing their starters. Guess Lovie isn’t as much like his old buddy Dungy as some people may believe. Last NFC team that had nothing to gain and played their starters in week 17 and lost won the SB (NYG). It was huge for them, most of them admitted that they got momentum from that.

    I thrilled the Packers won and are in the playoffs. Just a cherry on top on BrINT Favre’s season. His spiteful encouragement to Peppers a couple of weeks ago show just how little class the man has but remember, we are talking about the man that sent lewd pixs to another NFL employee so you can’t get much lower than that. Well, I suppose you could if you played for the Vikings, oh yea, he already does.

    Now we can look forward to the CryQueen fans coming out of the woodwork with similar spiteful comments. Last place losers with no QB, no stadium and not a bright future.

    Thank you. Might as well book that one as a Packers win there too, given your track record. What a sad state you must be in, each time hoping someone, ANYONE, can end our season like your team never could.

    Also, I couldn’t care either way about the Badgers, but that was at least a very good game. In the Rose Bowl no less, between two top-ranked. How did the Gophers finish again?

    Meaningless Game? That must be why the Bears played their starters all game.

    Erin? Come on you don’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of as long as Cutler is QB’ing. At least we know one of Brett’s records is going down. 2 very ugly picks and 4 other potential picks dropped. He’s an younger, uglier, less charasmatic Favre. Lucky Bears rofl.

If you were a man of principle, you’d own up to it and not be a hypocrite, of course, bein a packer fan, you can’t help yourself, the whole fanbase is all hypocrites.

    I KNOW he predicts a Packer loss each week. How’s that working out for him? It’s making him look like a total and complete bitter fool, that’s how. Yet I’M the idiot when all I do is call him on his BS?

    News flash: There is more to the Packers than just Ted. I’m a fan of the TEAM. The team existed long before he was even born, and it’ll be there long after he’s fired (which should be soon).

    Are all the Viking fans who called for Childress’ incompetent head not true fans? Should they not have enjoyed your playoff win against the Cowboys last season? I had you as a knowledgeable fan, but now you’re starting to look as dumb as Pervy.

    Speaking of hypocrites, didn’t you call me out just last week for generalizing an entire fanbase? I’m pretty sure you did. Now you’ve done the same thing.

    My turn: All three of the Viking fans who still have the guts to show up on this site these days: congratulations, you’re true fans. You need to let this bitterness go and hold your own team responsible for their hilarious failures however. A Packers playoff loss will not give the Vikings a winning season. It’s not our fault your team bet the farm on last year and lost. We tried to warn you this would happen.

    ClayMath: You do look stupid losing to TCU, all you heard through Wisconsin is how they were going to beat the piss out of TCU and Bielema pulls a Mccarthy and can’t manage the clock!
    Sweep, playoffs—owned?
    Didn’t you turds tell us last year that if we didn’t win it all, it means nothing? That you don’t hang your hat on just making the playoffs? Or regular season games? Now that’s all changed and is supposed to mean something? As stated above, HYPOCRITES!, thanks for proving my point. Philly blows this team out of the water.

Our team has years of great things ahead of us! I’m sure in a few years we will not even see your name on here because of humiliation your team will provide due to rebuilding. Can we just be honest here? You thought your team was going to make a run for it this year. Your team was the laughing stock of the league all year. Anything people like you post on here just brings a smile to my face because I can be just happy that I am not you!!

    That’s correct. If the Packers don’t win it all, which I’ll concede is unlikely, then this is akin to a losing season.

    I’d like to think the Packer fans on here know that and are just trying to stick it to the Viking fans, to whom regular season wins and playoff losses ARE seen as achievement (because that’s the best they’ve ever had), but who knows. This site attracts the worst of the worst. Not one team can really say they’re well-represented on here.

    Remember back when Green Bay was Title Town? You know, before most of you were born? When Vince left Green Bay so did football. One and done and that makes your season NO better than the Vikings….

    Oh yah, Favrer said he wished he was a Viking long ago. Said Green Bay was a boring sh*thole…

    Dude…you have to be the only “fan” of the packers on this planet that think Thompson is getting fired anytime soon. You and your opinions are embarassing. For Petes sake this is a team with like 7 starters and a half dozen total guys on IR. How is this team in the playoffs? Please answer that. Even knowledgeable Viking fans are seeing that the depth in Green Bay is unbelievable. Who is responsible for acquiring that depth?

    Pervy and Gravy…

    I have to give you props for standing up for your state. I’m glad to know there are actually four working nuts in the entire state of Minnesota. I had my doubts.

    But the Badgers? Unless Bronko Nagurski comes back from the grave in prime form, I would say the Gophers will probably go another 80 years before their next Big Ten title. Pathetic program. And the Vikes are the laughing stalk of the NFL. How can you manage both in one city? Are you guys consulting with A Brother’s Touch, The Eagle or the 90′s when you consider player acquistion?

    What has Thompson done to warrant his firing? His team is 10-6 and in the playoffs for the second consecutive season. It’s hard for a GM to be fired for that.

    TT is A ok in my book. With all these injuries he finds good people to fill the spots. Look at the game Walden just had against the Bears. Who you ask? Exactly.

    Second consecutive season, wow… I’m supposed to be impressed?

    Learn your history. Ted’s teams went to the playoffs four years in a row in Seattle. Each of them ended in the one-and-done that Ted is so famous for.

    The Seahawk powers that be weren’t any more impressed than I am now, and so they didn’t keep him around. A year later, they were in the Super Bowl, and about fifteen bad calls away from winning it.

    Why is that now? Because Ted is a one-trick pony. He’s a rebuilder. Quite a decent one in fact. He can take any lousy team and make them fairly competitive. He can draft better than most, particularly in the later rounds, and he can build depth. I don’t like him, but I will give him all of that.

    However, he’s completely out of his element once he has a decent team to manage. That’s why he never accomplished anything in Seattle. He didn’t have the fortitude to pull the trigger and put that team over the top. Even Ruskell (who no one is going to call a top personnel man) accomplished in one year what Ted couldn’t do in five.

    It’s also why he gutted a quality team the second he arrived in Wisconsin. He literally needs to have a rebuilding project. That’s all he knows. Now, I’d say he’s built the team up fairly well. We have decent talent, aside from a few problem areas he refuses to address. We have great depth.

    However, he will still never do what it takes to get that one essential piece to make a run. He won’t get that Reggie White type player.

    That is why the Packers brass need to take a cue from the Seahawks (though not the current team) and see that Ted has outlived his usefulness. He’s done all he knows how. It’s time to get someone who knows what to do next.

    That’s why Ted needs to be fired. Prepare for more Viking-esque playoff failures until that finally happens.

    Matthews? Woodson? Did White ever win DPOY in Green Bay? Beer Cheese you are an an embarassment to the Packer fan base. And also your heritage.

    Don’t act like you know anything about my heritage, you racist scumbag. You don’t.

    Did White win the DPOY in GB? No. Did he win a Lombardi? Obviously.. Was the ring his stated reason for wanting to come to GB in the first place? Yes.

    Would Woodson and Matthews both trade all of their individual on-field awards for the ultimate trophy? I’m sure they would. Would Ted trade his meaningless executive of the year award for just one ring? Of course he would.

    Does all of your hype on Ted and various individual players mean anything at all when they all have yet to accomplish that one thing they should all want most? NOPE.

    @Beer Cheese Soup
    you make valid points, my question to you is who would you replace tt with? I have heard the criticism of tt not pulling the trigger to get that player, but in retrospect he seems to be doing better than most of the gm’s in the league and pulling the trigger to get that special player doesn’t always pan out (Randy Moss, Albert Haynesworth). As a long time packer fan I have come to appreciate the years when the packers are competitive and make the playoffs, hopefully with the core group of young players tt has assembled they will continue to improve and stay competitive for years to come.

    Hey man..save the effort. Beer Cheese Soup has no idea what long term thinking is all about. He is a free agent and trade whore. The elite…like you and I…realize that method of assembling a roster does not work. IE 2010 Minnesota Vikings…..and beyond……

    Thank you for your very reasonable assessment. Always nice to meet a civilized fan on here. I agree, Ted does better than most in the league. He has assembled a good core group. He just isn’t what this team needs at the moment.

    Also correct that there have been a number of FA busts over the years. A good GM should ideally know the difference. Ted did very well with Woodson, He just didn’t follow that up with anyone else. There are three ways to build a team these days. Successful franchises, like the Saints, Colts, and Patriots, use all three. Ted only uses one.

    If you are a “long-time Packer fan” than you know what winning it all is like. You know the feeling of watching your favorite team hoisting the trophy. After that, you can’t honestly say you’re satisfied with merely being competitive, getting in on a wildcard and losing early in the playoffs. I’m sure not.

    So, to answer your question: who would I replace Ted with? Probably one of his own assistants. Someone who spent enough time watching him work to know what to do, and more importantly, what NOT to do. Someone who can continue the current draft-first philosophy, keep the current scouting department intact, but someone who has the balls to make the one or two bold moves it will take to finally put this team over the top, and bring the Lombardi home once again.

  71. supersuckers3 says: Jan 5, 2011 11:47 AM

    Beer you are almost singing Thompsons praises. Just the one ring they won under Wolf in ten years vs the none with Thompson in 6 is the kicker? Give Thompson the full ten years and your ridiculous claims that one of his own assistants is the answer will be even more absurd then it is now. You have lil’ nuts. Hows that for knowledge??

  72. Beer Cheese Soup says: Jan 5, 2011 2:34 PM

    That’s actually probably the extent of YOUR knowledge.. Other men’s genitals, and nothing else.

    Wolf took five to get us there idiot. Just because he lasted five more after that doesn’t mean it took ten years to build a successful team. In the summer, you were saying this would be the year. Then it was next year. Now it’s four more? Give me a break.

    I give Thompson credit for his good moves, and I admit there have been quite a few great ones. I also call him out for his failures.

    You don’t. You toe the company line at all costs. You think Harrell and Hawk were the right picks. You think Starks/Kuhn/Jackson/Nancy/whoever it is this week is the best back we could have.

    Your reasoning for all of this? Thompson is an NFL GM, and you aren’t, so you can’t say anything negative about him. That is so blindly stupid it’s mind-numbing.

    You aren’t the president either, and you obviously never will be, but I’ve seen you criticize him for a number of his failures. By your own logic, you can’t do that. Of course, you and logic don’t belong in the same sentence.

    So, I am once again done arguing with you. I’m sure we can both agree on hoping this week doesn’t end in failure for our team once again. I’ll leave on that note..
