Let the buildup to Packers-Bears begin

Julius Peppers

We’re six days away from knowing the participants for the Super Bowl, which could include two No. 6 seeds for the first time.

For that to happen, the Packers need to beat their oldest rivals in Chicago Sunday.   Let the hype begin.

“[Rodgers] looked like the greatest that ever did it,” defensive end Julius Peppers told the Chicago Tribune Sunday.  “He’s the greatest.  So, you know we have to be at the top of our game to be competitive.”

That seemingly sarcastic start to the week is a reminder that Rodgers has struggled relatively against the Bears.   For my early look ahead at the title games on NBCSports.com, I mention that the Bears are actually a bad matchup for Green Bay.

Chicago is one of the few teams that has shown they can slow the Packers down.  Their offensive line has also rounded into shape.

Of course, the Packers present matchup problems for any team.  Coach Mike McCarthy is on a playcalling roll, and the Packers have the defense to make Bad Jay come out of hiding.    This is going to be fun.

    Close game, 17-14 Pack. FG at the bell wins it.

    Bay Jay= Bad Jay?

    Or is it Bay Jay because GB owns him? I guess it makes sense both ways.

  3. emoney826 says: Jan 17, 2011 10:29 AM

    We’re no seahawks. Green bay will be holding up the halas trophy in Chicago. This game will be for bragging rights for the next 20 years.

    Remember when people were saying Lovie Smith might not be back next year?

  5. localoutlaw says: Jan 17, 2011 10:47 AM

    Cutler will get flustered by the Packers blitzing and throw 3 interceptions and lose the game!

  6. emac11 says: Jan 17, 2011 10:53 AM

    It’s not too hard to make “Bay Jay” come out of hiding. Bad Jay either.

  7. purpleisreallypinkyouknow says: Jan 17, 2011 10:54 AM

    I’m not going to spew trash talk here, because we all know this game could go either way.

    I do see the Packers winning this one, much in the same fashion the Bears did to the Seahawks yesterday. That field is an absolute joke, and that plays into the Packer’s strength more so than the Bears’ from an offensive standpoint. I see Cutler having a handful of brainfarts (like yesterday’s color-blindness at the goal-line), and the Packers will take advantage of that.

    The Bears are in no way near the offensive powers that Philly and Atlanta both posessed…and Philly and Atlanta both had top tier defenses, like the Bears. This game is over by the 4th quarter.
    Pack 31
    Bears 20

    It will be interesting to see what the Bears have in store vs. a team in the post season that isn’t under .500.

    The Packers have been playing win or go home since Week 16 vs. the NYG. They have been on a roll, and beating the #1 seed in thier house has to make the Pack feel really good about where they are at as a team. Especially with all the injuries they have had to overcome, thats why TT needs to be GM of the year again.

    The Black and Blue Division is the best in the NFC

  10. packerblitz says: Jan 17, 2011 11:17 AM

    I love that it comes down to the NFC North rivals for the NFC Championship, but the Bears are a joke. A weak schedule, a James Jones fumble in week 3, and a pathetic opponent in the divisional playoffs brought the Bears to where they are. Seriously, this luck ends Sunday when Rodgers and company comes to town.

  11. pervyharvin says: Jan 17, 2011 11:18 AM

    I’d like to congratulate the Bears and Packers. Since the Vikings took the North the 2 previous years it is nice to let you fans feel some of our success.The NFC was pretty crappy this year so you guys get a shot at the SB. Falcons,as the Eagles were highly overrated and the Sea Hawks just plain terrible.Saints lost their swagger and running game from last year.I don’t care who wins between you for the NFC Champ will end up being cut bait for the AFC Champion in the SB.Just remember that the Vikings will get back with a QB and the Lions are moving up.Will be a tough division for years to come.

  12. sintaxair says: Jan 17, 2011 11:18 AM

    The terrible field will neutralize the speed of Matthews as well as Peppers. Please do not overlook this fact. The field will be a frozen sponge and its a fact that the Bears seem to slip less than other teams on it.

    Its also important to note that in a “win or go home” scenario the Packers could only muster 10 pts.

    The Bears will be home underdogs, they will never get any respect until they just win the damn thing.

    Bears 21-17

    “Coach Mike McCarthy is on a playcalling roll”= Biggest reason for the Packers success

  15. emperorzero says: Jan 17, 2011 11:27 AM

    This is going to be a close, epic game no matter who wins it. I think we’ll be looking at a repeat of Week 17 where it will come down to defense and who makes the biggest or last mistake.

  16. supersuckers3 says: Jan 17, 2011 11:35 AM

    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.

  17. sprtsfan1 says: Jan 17, 2011 11:39 AM

    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.

  18. thewillakilla says: Jan 17, 2011 11:58 AM

    I’m looking forward to a hard fought black-and-blue division classic next Sunday. I really hope the Pack isn’t patting their own backside after the ATL game.

    While I do the Packers are a vastly superior team to the Bears, the Bears have given the Pack fits this year for whatever reason. I like the Pack’s chances and with Rodgers, the receiving core, the O-Line, Running Backs, DB’s and D-Line ALL firing on all cylinders, hopefully we come out and crush the Bear.

    The Pack will need significantly improved special teams play and better tackling to put this one in the bag… here’s hoping.

    You mean Fox. They will be the only network broadcasting the Super Bowl. Fixed your post for ya.

  20. gcsuk says: Jan 17, 2011 12:37 PM

    I have no horse in this race, so it should be fairly objective.

    If the Bears play against GB like they played against Seattle, GB should be able to dictate the game and win. The Packers D-Line is MUCH better than Seattle, and Cutler will not have the time he had against the Seahawks to find an open receiver 40 yards downfield.

    If the Bears run the ball (Forte has been playing much better, and the O-Line has been run blocking better) and are successful with screen passes, they can win. But if Martz thinks they can 7 Step Drop against GB, they will probably end up paying for it. GB secondary is much better, and they have shown it lately.

  21. cusoman says: Jan 17, 2011 12:38 PM

    Pervy, for once let’s leave the Vikings out of this and keep this as an epic tale to be told that will shape the NFC North for years to come. We had our shot last year, that’s over.

    I say hang on and enjoy the ride, it’s going to be a great game any football lover should be interested in If in turn this sparks a renewed hatred on the lines of the Pats/Jets or Cowboys/Eagles, the other two teams in the division will only stand to gain from the intense matchups down the road, after each team beats each other silly.

    I really can’t take sides on this one, so may the best team win and here’s to, hopefully, a game for the ages!

  22. bryan95nichols says: Jan 17, 2011 12:54 PM

    Ok I’m sick of all the trash talk against the bears, they won the NFC north, the packers can’t do anything offensively against them, the packers won what 10 to 3? ok one mistake by the packers could’ve changed the entire game, there’s 4 teams left, 1 the bears and 2 the bears beat (packers and jets). when the good jay comes out, all those critics will be Filing for unemployment. And one of thing is why is their no credit to the bears they made it all this way?

  23. pervyharvin says: Jan 17, 2011 12:59 PM

    @ cusoman….Don’t know about epic tale but I am glad to see the North moving up. Those old days of 49er,Dallas and Redskins ruling the NFC was just plain SICKENING! I said days ago, let the North dominate for years to come! Get some AFC respect even. Would be nice!

  24. jimmysee says: Jan 17, 2011 1:00 PM

    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!

  25. 34swtns says: Jan 17, 2011 1:09 PM

    Once again the fans in the tiny city by the lake showcase their redneck sensibility as well as their lack of knowledge and class by immediately predicting a Packer blowout, subsequently setting themselves up to look like total douches if their team loses. Why would you do that? Do you enjoy the awkward silence you are forced to adhere to around the people that you went running your mouth off to when your team loses? Maybe you’re just too stupid to care? I don’t get it. Show some clsss, take the high road and simply say “It’s gonna be a good game. Hope we win it”. But you probably can’t ascend to that level of intelligence anyway so carry on with your miserable douchey existence.
    This Bears fan says: It’s gonna be a good game. Hope we win it.

  26. footballrulz says: Jan 17, 2011 1:10 PM

    Wow cusoman, nice post.

    In Lovie’s first press conference as HC he mentioned his goal was to beat the Packers and he has been successful at it. He knows the Pack better than any other team. This will be one of MM’s biggest coaching challenges and the Pack will need a near perfect game to pull it off. Here’s to hoping they do…

  27. 34swtns says: Jan 17, 2011 1:10 PM

    “jimmysee” = Packer fan with class.

  28. pervyharvin says: Jan 17, 2011 1:11 PM

    OK folks…I’m going to ruin the excitement for you! Ready? (Shakes the magic 8 ball) Magic 8 ball says……..drumroll……..Bears vs Steelers in the SB! Bank on it my little friends. Rodgers gets drilled and fumbles leading to a winning td in the 4th for da Bears.

  29. packfannchitown says: Jan 17, 2011 1:29 PM

    Da Bears? You mean those posers who played a practice game yesterday and now have their panties in a bunch thinking they’re actually going to win Sunday?

    Here’s how it’s going to go down.

    • The Packers will win the game.

    • The stage will be erected in the middle of Soldier Field.

    • The Packers will be crowned NFC Champions, ensuring that the Chicago “C” is visible on the turf.

    • The Bears, (especially crybaby Cutler) will be crying like little children (or Tony Romo) because they lost a ride to the Super Bowl in their own house to their arch rivals.

    • The Packers will screw at least half the Bear cheerleaders before heading home because the cheerleaders only sleep with winners.

    Don’t worry though Bear fans, there’ll always be next year…

  30. leroysbutler says: Jan 17, 2011 1:31 PM

    There’s a reason the Bears are not getting a lot of respect. They have been very lucky this year.

    First of all they have no injuries. Probably the least injured team in the league.

    Secondly they played 3 games where they played against the other teams 3rd string QB.

    Third, they were able to play a losing team at home in the playoffs.

    Then there was the first Lions game where Calvin Johnson beat them but the refs took it away.

    Also, in the first game against the Packers, it took 18 penalties (that took away 2 turnovers) and a bad bounce fumble that allowed the Bears to win by 3.

    That said the Bears are a decent team that is playing well. They could beat the Packers. I do believe that Cutler will give the Pack multiple opportunities for interceptions. If they take care of the ball on their end they win.

  31. packmanfan says: Jan 17, 2011 1:37 PM

    The Packers NEED to win this one for 2 reasons.
    1) To stick it to the Cowboys and Jerry Jones by playing in his house in the big game.
    2) To show the Vikes and Bears fans that they can do it and they’re teams can’t from last year and this year.
    Go Pack Go!!!!!!!!

  32. purpleguy says: Jan 17, 2011 1:46 PM

    Congrats to the Bears and Pack — both teams played well this weekend and deserve to be in the championship game. However, us Vikings fans are in a dilema though — who in the hell do we root for? A tie? For Soldier Field to be swallowed by a giant sinkhole? We’re in a dilema here in MN.

    I’d like to congratulate the Bears and Packers. Since the Vikings took the North the 2 previous years it is nice to let you fans feel some of our success.
    =====================================

    What success?
    One of these teams is going to the Super Bowl… something the Vikings have not seen in 34 years.
    The Bears and Packers have 21 championships between them.
    That would be 21 more than the Vikings just in case you can’t find a calculator pervy.

  34. dukemarc says: Jan 17, 2011 2:21 PM

    Vikings will get back with a QB – we’ve been hearing the crap since Daunte left, it’s old. You better hope you can beat the Lions next year otherwise you’ll probably go 0-6 in the division.

    And that was 7 more than the Bears “mustered”. The Packers defense is every bit as good as the Bears and their offense is by far the superior of the two teams. The only thing you can hope for is some big returns from Hester. If Masthay kicks like he did in December, you’ll have no “offense” this time around either.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    The Bears beat Philly at home in week 12 31-26, and Cutler had 4 touchdowns in the game. If he shows up and has the protection The Bears can win.

    Just sayin’

  38. bigbear12 says: Jan 17, 2011 2:47 PM

    Arguably the top 2 defenses in both conferences playing Sunday. Should be more talk about this.

  39. broccoli77 says: Jan 17, 2011 3:04 PM

    @packfannchitown: Your a complete tool box. The Bears don’t have cheerleaders! Packers scored 10 points against the Bears when they were sleeping to avoid injuries. If your sad little packers score more than that, it would be a surprise. I expect a BLOWOUT

  40. broccoli77 says: Jan 17, 2011 3:14 PM

    @packmanfan : Right, I am sure Jerry Jones is laying awake at night concerned about who is playing in his stadium on the biggest sporting event of the year. I wonder if you packer fans, even collectively, can muster up an intelligent comment. I actually feel dumber just reading your posts. The Bears won the division, Packers can’t win. Sunday’s game will be over by the 3rd quarter. Packers will be outplayed in all three phases as well as out coached. Just one week earlier you in breeders can get back to ice fishing and spousal abusing!

  41. bryan95nichols says: Jan 17, 2011 3:23 PM

    Ok just gonna state the straight truth, bears aren’t as good as the packers, but that game in week 17 was a win or go home game for the packers and the bears already had a clinched a play off birth, and their season record between the two is 1-1. So if u ask me it’s gonna go down to the wire, the special teams of the packers sucks compared to the bears, And if the cutler we had against the jets shows up I predict it going to the bears, if good old cutler that we’ve come to hate shows up it’ll be over at half-time with the packers walking away, my prediction depending on the QBs will decide the game

    I can’t imagine how hard that must be. I have enough of a bad time when it’s Bears-Vikings or Bears-Cowboys in the regular season. At least then it CAN end in a tie. This is playoffs, with a Super Bowl on the line, and potentially unlimited overtimes. That’s got to be eating all of you up inside.

    Just um, detach your understandable dislike for both teams and just hope for a really good game, I guess. I certainly expect it to be.

    If the Bears should win this week, they’ll have my full support to win the Super Bowl. Even as painful as it may be for me, they’ll have most certainly earned it at that point.

    In the meantime however, I hope they get blown out in front of their home crowd worse than Atlanta did.

    To all the people who say the Bears did not “try” week 17, get real…….

    Why would the Bears play their starters the whole game if they did not “try”? Why risk injuring their studs for a meaningless game? Does not add up…..

    The Bears DID try because they knew the Packers were the best team vying for the final wild card spot…..And they want no part of the Pack….

    If you actually believe the Bears did not “try”, i have some OCEAN front property up in northern Wisconsin for sale…… Great deal, better price and the waves are great for surfing…….

    This should be one hell of a game, and pry the highest ranking NFCC game ever on TV. As Bears fans we learn 3 things Hate the Packers, Love Ditka and that the Vikings never matter they are only in the north to fill space. But our hate for the Packers is full of respect with the history and tradition between the teams. And I will guess the Packers learn 3 things Love Lambardi, Hate the Bears, and same story with the VIkings. Cant wait for Sunday should be great.

    Not sure what Star Trek has to do with this..

    That’s right. No more Ted hating from me. I am man enough to admit when I’m wrong, and I’m extremely glad to know I was wrong.

    As all Pack fans know, if they don’t win it all, this year is ultimately a failure. Even if that should happen, I still have to like this team’s chances going forward, so long live that white-haired recluse.

    It’s not a matter of bandwagoning. I was a Packers fan in the pathetic 80′s, I was a Packers fan through the annual playoff chokes of the latter Favre years, and even when still I didn’t think Ted knew talent from a hole in the ground, I still wanted the Packers to win. They are my team, after all.

    Clearly you’ve never been to Seattle. It smells like rotten fish and bird droppings, not wet dog. It also rains every single day, but I’m okay with that. I wish the game was here too. Not only then could I be there in person, but we’d also be a lock to win it. There is no predicting any Bears-Pack game, particularly one of this significance.

    First, for most of this season the Bears really were not as good of a team as their record indicated. The suffered almost no injuries, had several games given to them by officials or by playing dramatically injured opposing teams. The Packers stepped in to hand them one early on with a ridiculous amount of fouls. Furthermore, anyone who watched the week 17 game knows for a fact that the Bears were playing to win.

    All of that said, the Bears are now a much better team than they were for the first 2/3rds of the season. Their defense is excellent, and their offense is generally competent (including a decent running game).

    They are not better than the Packers, but they are good enough that the game could go their way if the Pack doesn’t take care of their own business.

    So here’s hoping the Packers players and coaches get their heads on straight this week, and play their hearts out in Chi-town. If they do it should be good enough for a solid win. If not…it could get ugly.

    ======================================Yah tool, thats why last year you and the Packers were sitting at home during the NFCCG. You know,with Ouija boards praying to the Devil that the Vikings not make the SB!

    Pervy, why would you try to use a game that your team lost to prove a point? All you did is prove I am right when I said the Vikings don’t matter and never will, cause they can’t ever win the big game………..

    I’ve been reading a lot about the ‘lucky’ Bears. Luck doesn’t take you to a division title, luck doesn’t take you to the #2 seed, and luck doesn’t get you into the NFC Championship Game. Everyone else around them either already lost in the playoffs or weren’t good enough to qualify.

    The two teams that are there deserve to be there, and that they have two of the best fan bases in football (not to mention their storied histories) make this one of the great playoff game buildups in the last decade… hopefully the game will be half as good as the hype.

    Whoever wins this game is the team I’ll be rooting for in the Super Bowl.

    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.

    ——————————————–

    I couldn’t have said it better myself!! Lets pray that Starks can be some what effective! Pack fans need to mellow out a bit, as this will be one tough game!!! Bears are a team the I have, and always will, respect tremendously! That being said, I cannot wait for Sunday…….

    GO PACK!

    I hope the Packers team is as arrogant and over-confident as their fans. If so, the Bears will be riding high in the SB. Go Bears!

    Ok I’m sick of all the trash talk against the bears, they won the NFC north, the packers can’t do anything offensively against them, the packers won what 10 to 3? ok one mistake by the packers could’ve changed the entire game, there’s 4 teams left, 1 the bears and 2 the bears beat (packers and jets). when the good jay comes out, all those critics will be Filing for unemployment. And one of thing is why is their no credit to the bears they made it all this way?

    The Packers did make one mistake. Greg Jennings dropped a perfect pass when he was wide open that would have made it 17-3.
