Bears spoil Thanksgiving in Green Bay with 17-13 win over Packers

Getty Images

Aaron Rodgers fourth-and-goal pass for Davante Adams fell incomplete in the end zone as the Chicago Bears held on for a 17-13 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night at Lambeau Field.

Both offenses struggled to move the ball consistently in the soggy conditions, but the Bears did just enough to keep their playoff hopes alive while dealing a blow to their division rivals.

Trailing 17-13, Rodgers tried to force a slant into Davante Adams that was picked off by Tracy Porter with 3:20 left to play.

The Packers forced a three-and-out to get the ball back with 2:40 remaining and give Rodgers one more chance. Rodgers hit Randall Cobb to beat the blitz for 32 yards to move inside the Bears red zone. Another completion to Adams gave the Packers first-and-goal from the 8 but four straight incompletions sealed the victory for Chicago.

Jay Cutler passed for 200 yards and a touchdown with Alshon Jeffery leading the way with seven catches for 90 yards for Chicago. Jeremy Langford also scored on a 1-yard touchdown run.

Rodgers completed just 22 of 43 passes on the night for 202 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Rodgers averaged a meager 4.7 yards per attempt and the Packers were just 3-of-11 on third down on the night.

Trailing 7-0, Chris Prosinski forced a fumble from Eddie Lacy to give Chicago the ball at the Packers 36-yard line. Nine plays later, Jay Cutler found tight end Zach Miller open for a 3-yard touchdown to even the game 7-7 with six minutes left in the second quarter.

Jeff Janis’ 64-yard kickoff return quickly put the Packers back in Chicago territory with a chance to re-take the lead. Green Bay moved to the Chicago 1-yard line on a 4-yard pass from Rodgers to Cobb, but an offensive pass interference call on James Jones backed the Packers up and led to a 22-yard Mason Crosby field goal to give Green Bay a 10-7 lead.

The Bears took over with 1:58 remaining and Cutler marched the Bears for the go-ahead score. Deonte Thompson’s 37-yard kickoff return give Chicago good field position to start the drive. The Bears didn’t face a single third down on the possession in moving quickly downfield. Marquess Wilson nearly scored a 20-yard touchdown but was ruled down at the 1-yard line upon review. It didn’t take long for the Bears to punch it in with Langford scoring on the next play.

A 13-yard completion from Rodgers to Richard Rodgers and a 23-yard completion to Cobb moved Green Bay into field goal position. Crosby hit a 50-yard field goal as time expired to close the gap before the half.

  1. Cheeseheads, short lived victory celebration. Lets see, that 2 losses in a row at home to 2 teams with under .500 records.

    Perennial cheeseheads going nowhere!

  2. Aaron Rodgers threw 2 passes at the end that got dropped by his receivers in the end zone. But Bears, Lions, and Vikings fans will blame him for the loss and say he “isn’t clutch,” facts be damned.

  3. Big PACK guy here. Ugh. Talk about indigestion. Looks like MY GUY ROGERS is back to his old tricks choking away games late. Pretty sick of how this year has gone to this point. It started in the offseason. MacArthur has to go soon, capers scheme is outdated. I dunno, just my 3 cents. Still, GO PACK!!!

  4. How y’all packer fans feeling? What a great game! The officials wanted Green Bay to win the the Bears overcame it! Love watching Green Bay lose almost as much as I love watching Minnesota win. Happy Thanksgiving

  5. Congrats to Bears and their fans. Porter was your MVP and nemesis of my team all night. Not enough tempo and poor execution in passing game for the Pack offense, to the credit of the secondary of Bears. Packers are in trouble heading next to Ford field in one week.
    Great tribute and honor to Brett Favre and awesome seeing legend of Bart Starr in attendance….
    Go Pack!

  6. Finally a close Thanksgiving Day game, and good halftime too. Congrats to the Bears. The NFCN is looking better a a whole every week.

  7. Blatant officiating screw up at the end of first half. Chicago kicks off following score, GB lays on ball at 29 yard line. Ball then marked at 32. Last play of half, GB kicks 50 yard fg that went 53 yards, 35 inches. Take a look for yourselves, how does NFL explain this type of incompetence?

  8. The refs gave GB every chance to win this game, again. What a performance from the former MVP..
    Maybe this will shut their annoying fans up for 10 days. But not likely

  9. Can we stop calling Rogers the best already….. There is this #12 in Boston who is the true #1….. That’s a fact 4X rings every single record on the planet of relevance….. Wake up!!!!!!

  10. hey rodgers..might want to try some gloves..12-4? bwahahahaha . detroit beats you in ford field next time december 3rd. you stink roidgers. maybe your hands are 2 small..one other question. you’re still in first, and have home field over carolina right?

  11. Aaron Rodgers threw 2 passes at the end that got dropped by his receivers in the end zone. But Bears, Lions, and Vikings fans who are jealous of him will find a way to blame him for the loss.

  12. This is turning into a fun season in the NFC north. Bears realistically could finish 9-7 at best. Packers are playing inconsistent and it is hard to tell if the Vikes are gonna play ball or poop their pants. Lions seem to be figuring things out. I don’t see any team progressing past wildcard this year, but next year could be even better.

  13. Refs did a lot early on and starting the 2nd half to keep the Packers in that one. Bears are an average team, Packers are a below average team with a great QB. The NFC is just pitiful this season!

  14. How’s that working out for you Packers fans? Got beat by the Bears, that’s pretty pathetic. Talking trash about last week over the Vikings. Now back to the nfc north bottom and quit talking trash when you can’t even beat the Bears.

  15. Nooooo!!!!
    The officials tried so hard to bring joy to the trailer parks across the county….
    Cris Collinsworth kept focusing in on Rodgers’ broken nail….
    “Zoom in on Aaron’s colon…. yep. I can see his head in there all right!”
    This was supposed to be another “Let’s all praise the Duck Dynasty team” love fest but once again they actually had to play the game.
    I would love to see a game at Lambeau called like a real game just once.

  16. next man up right green bay? time to start looking for a qb that can win in the clutch. this guy has almost his 8th full season and has 12 come from behind wins in the 4th quarter?

  17. Pack fans: you need to all close it now. This was the “easy” part of your schedule and you’re 1-2 with two home losses to divisional opponents. The refs kept you in it as long as they could and you still had no chance. At least you’ll always have last weeks Super Bowl trophy.

    9-7 will be a gift. Back to the basement for the foreseeable future.

  18. Hats off to the Bears, they played well, one goal EVERY team in the NFL sets out, is to get better every week. The Bears are 5-3 in the last 8 games and haven’t lost a game by more than a FG in that span.

    Part of me feels akward, because I am actually happy for Jay Cutler, maybe I feel pity for the way he is viewed, but he is finally figuring things out.

    No one has ever questioned the elite talent of his arm, everyone know he has one, its always been the mental part of the game. He seems to have that in check now, and this Bears team and QB are making strides, I am just glad he didn’t have that part of the game figured out 5 years ago.

  19. How’s that working out for you Packers fans? Got beat by the Bears, that’s pretty pathetic. Talking trash about last week over the Vikings. Now back to the nfc north bottom and quit talking trash when you can’t even beat the Bears. Last week I said keep laughing with the win over Vikings bc it ain’t gonna last. Look what just happen. Ha ha ha ha, Carl, ha ha ha ha.Packers still suck.

  20. green bay fans….”doesnt matter if we lose to minnesota, arizona, oakland, dallas, and detroit. only 2 of those are division games….packer fans think if they win all division games and go 6-10 on the season, that they have home field advantage, because they won something in 1931, and there were only 2 teams in the league back then. one last thing. umm minnesota is in first place all alone you rubes

  21. Bears won this game versing Packers and the referees. I don’t want the Bears winning to take off what was another Prime Time poorly officiated game.

    The NFL has a problem and with teams that are favored all getting the calls I can’t think its human error. I said this last year but I remember when I stopped watching the NBA because of Tim Donaghy. Nothing was confirmed but the way games were playing out something didn’t feel right. The NFL has far worse week after week.

  22. Oh, let the excuses begin. Last week was a gifted win given to you courtesy of the NFL. The league doesn’t want Minnesota winning the division, or getting close to the Super Bowl. The proof is in the game, when Favre was with Green Bay, he got call after call in his favor. If a defensive player came anywhere near Favre in his Green Bay days, a flag was thrown immediately..

    When Favre was a Viking in that 2009 Champioship game, he was hit illegally all game long and nothing. Why? Because he was a Viking. The Vikings should have been in the Super Bowl in 2009, and the way they played that year, they would have hands down won the title. But the league did what they do best, screw the Vikings.

    Plain and simple, the Vikings are better than the Packers. Yes GB has a better QB, but the Vkings have the better TEAM. Things would be much different if Minnesota didn’t have to play the opposing team, and the refs every game.

    Let the whining begin cheeseheads, it’s gonna be a long and boring winter this year.

  23. James Jones and Davante Adams combined for 2 receptions on 17 targets for 14 yards.

    I’m so glad Jeff Janis can’t get into the game or we’d be missing out on all of that production…

  24. Well done Bears! The curse is lifted at last. It was funny watching the NBC crew scramble for the postgame since they clearly hadn’t planned on Rodgers actually losing.

    Their red zone weakness showed up again though and would have cost them this game if Rodgers had been on point. Handing off to Forte inside the 5 is a wasted down at least 8 times out of 10 so that playcalling was questionable to say the least. But this was a game really showed me something in that both the offense and the defense had enough screwups to lose but somehow they each covered for the other just enough to get it done. 5-6 feels a whole lot better than 4-7 and especially since it doesn’t look like the Lions are going away.

  25. Let’s all give thanks…Jerry Jones and Aaron Rodgers lost today…Thank you Jesus!!!!
    Who was on the pipe when they made Dallas favorite over Carolina ????

  26. Its been a long time don’t feel sorry for the Packers, Rodgers was human tonight and oh so sad for Farve night. Bears outplayed them tonight and finished the game. Great win tonight

  27. C’mon… I want to hear the cheesehead excuses..
    (Don’t tell me the refs didn’t do their best to give you that game though.)

  28. Give credit to the Bears as they showed up to play.Not real sure what is going on behind the scenes,but all can not be good in the Packer locker room.Seems to be a divide between Rodgers and Macarthy.Also the Green Bay receivers are some of the slowest in the NFL.I am surprised this team has managed 7 wins.

  29. Rodgers is still the best, but he hasnt had the best season. Those trademark McCarthy deep outs that Aaron can throw a frozen rope on just arent connecting.
    You wanna be like Brees, Brady, Manning Rodgers? Switch ur game up bruh, show some new looks dude! All season ARods been looking kinda lost.
    And those dramatics over the funny bone hit, smh.

  30. I’m not a Rodgers fan, and actually glad they lost, but it’s not his fault they’re losing. The offensive scheme is terrible, and besides Cobb, he doesn’t have much help. Bears deserved this win.

    Hochuli has become arguably the worst official in the league (along with Triplette and a few other guys). Laughably bad calls on the defense, especially some of the calls on 3rd down. He did the same to NE a few weeks ago (one of the least penalized secondaries in the league)

  31. The refs will meet this week to come up with a better game plan to help the pack out next week.

    The formula is so obvious! 3rd and long? No problem! Air it out to a WR where a ref will call defensive PI.

    Clutch right? Am I right!?

    He threw the last one over the receiver’s head. You can have your own opinions but you don’t get your own facts.

  33. Look for the refs to get a stern call from the commish this week.

    There will also be a fine for not helping the pack get two more 1st downs.

  34. the refs were cap against both teams. NFC has one real contender Carolina and Arizona is good. NFC north has a bunch of average teams at best NFC east is sorry … Viking fan your team is average just like the packers

    ————————————————————-

    Wouldn’t lay any blame at all on Rodgers. Can’t really even say the recievers played that bad. Tracy Porter played an awesome game. Any pass his direction, he had his receiver blanketed pretty good, and always seemed to get a hand in on it.

    Since i’m a Vikings fan, it was good to see the bears win. Helps us out immensely. But, I’ve always had a soft spot for Favre. So, I was hoping somehow in the end, Rodgers recievers he’s working with, would have played better. Like the recievers Brett played with against Oakland the night after his father passed. Just because tonight was a special night, and they could have done it to honor Brett. Brett played the game like a kid. And he always left it all out on the field. Never had the half efforts from him that some guys give now. And as much as he had an awesome 2009 here, I wish that the end of his career would have been handled differently by GB. He was a true iron man. Always played. And no matter what the score was, you could never count his teams out.

    Gotta say, this NFC North division is looking tougher every week. With the Lions schooling Philly, and a dogfight in green bay tonight. The bears are going in the right direction under Fox. Cutler is playing much better under him, the lions looked like a completely different team earlier today. The Vikings playing better this year, and the packers are having an average year. This division is going to be a tough one in years to come.

  36. Interesting that it was also Da Bears that knocked out Fail and showed us that the iron man had rusted.

  37. “Sit down, take a look at yourself
    Don’t you want to be somebody
    Someday somebody’s gonna see inside
    You have to face up, you can’t run and hide

    Have you heard about the lonesome loser
    Beaten by the queen of hearts every time
    Have you heard about the lonesome loser
    He’s a loser, but he still keeps on tryin’.”

  38. Huge W, probably the most definitive demonstration of the level of the coaching staff assembled by Fox (and Pace). The Bears are probably ahead (even way ahead, I’d say) of schedule with their rebuilding, and I can’t but wonder what these coaches could do with more talent, especially Fangio on D#. If Gase leaves for a HC position, Fox and Pace must carefully choose his successor, but there is certainly more talent on the offensive side of the ball. I am not a big fan of McCoy as HC, but if the Chargers fired him, he could be a nice choice as OC. In hindsight, after initially thinking that this team needed to pick as high as possible next April, I grew disappointed with the winnable games that this team let slip through its fingers. I don’t think it’s outrageous to think that the Bears could easily be 6-5 or even 7-4.

  39. lol at the “refs tried real hard to help the Packers”. Hochuli’s crew is just plain terrible. They were terrible both ways, phantom tripping and illegal contact on the Bears. Phantom pick, blowing a play dead, etc on the Packers.

  40. Hard to believe the bears pulled that off with how much the refs were doing to make sure it didnt happen.
    The nfl is getting really close to the wwe with the refs constantly trying to steer the game to the outcome the league wants.

  41. The NFC North is truly up for grabs at this point…Shaping up to be a close finish with wildcard implications possible. Detroit finds life, Bears find defense, and Vikings get a tough game on the road against Atlanta. Who will win the NFC North?

  42. The Packers are the team the Viking trolls love to hate.
    It’s funny how they act like they are the team that won.

    ——————–

    Some people might blame Aaron Rodgers for the loss, but instead they should credit the Bears, especially their defense. James Jones didn’t drop that ball, Tracy Porter made a great play, one of many on the night. Rodgers had to throw two passes away because the Bears had good coverage. And the throw to Davante Adams was high — because coverage was tight — and the ball went through his hands. Both teams had to deal with the weather tonight, and it played a factor.

    The Bears were the better team tonight, and aside from committing a bunch of penalties, they played mistake-free football. The Packers didn’t.

    94-92-6. Bears.

  44. Mr. Comeback Aaron Rodgers fails….again!*

    For a “great” QB often called “the best player in the NFL” – Rodgers is pretty darn bad when the chips are down and he has to lead a 4th quarter come from behind win.

    Pretty

    Darn

    Bad

    * Note: Aaron “Best QB in the NFL” Rodgers has still NEVER lead a regular season comeback against a team ending the season with a winning record.

    NEVER.

    NOT

    ONCE

  45. Well…at least they won their Super Bowl last week.

    That should be about the only thing packer fans will talk about until next season.

    Bless their little hearts.

  46. Rogers is looking pretty mortal sans Jordy Nelson. Feast mode keeps fumbling. Have to go to Detroit next week. At least the defense looks good.

  47. Aaron Rodgers threw 2 passes at the end that got dropped by his receivers in the end zone. But Bears, Lions, and Vikings fans will blame him for the loss and say he “isn’t clutch,” facts be damned. WHY NOT IF IT WERE CUTLER YOU WOULD BE MAKING FUN OF HIM AND SAYING HE SUCKS. GET USED TO IT CHEESEHEADS YOU GOT BEAT BY A REBUILDING TEAM JUST WAIT TILL THEY HAVE A REAL TEAM TO KICK YOUR ASS EVERY YEAR!

  48. As bad and dumb as McCarthy is, I didn’t think he was capable of losing to bad teams at home with Rodgers as his QB. He has managed to not only do that, but make it hard for Rodgers to do anything at the same time. McCarthy has to go if they ever want to improve. They have looked awful for 4 of the past 5 weeks, and beating MN doesn’t count for anything.

  49. Wow, this sucks. Losing at Lambeau. At least there’s a lamb in there. Back in the bottle, I guess.

  50. I have been watching the Packers since the early ’90s. The receiving core has only been an issue a few times in about the 25 years I have been watching. This year is one of those times. This group should be ashamed of themselves.

    Remember when we had Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, James Jones, Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless? Yeah … I remember, too. Those were good times.

  51. My dinner was great. My guests were great. Then we choke away another game to spoil a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    This is why we can’t have nice things.

  52. Packer fan here…the Recievers look very sloppy. Davonte Adams should be benched IMHO. 2 catches with 11 targets and his many drops is terrible. He may be hurt, but he can’t be counted on. He was the focus of the gameplan against Detroit and that lost the game.

    This week he stopped short on the route that ended up in the Bears INT – that ended up a TD for the Bears and a difference in the game. He dropped two in the final four plays from the 8. I can’t believe he is being counted on as a go-to receiver.

    James Jones has his moments but he dropped a TD pass also. Cobb just isn’t himself.

    Rodgers is holding the ball way too long but it appears the receivers aren’t open, or he lost confidence.

    This offense is a far cry from what it was in the past 6 years and the receivers are the main reason. Once Ty Montgomery returns it should get better.

    I don’t think we are far from returning to what the O once was but someone needs to kick the receivers in the tail.

  53. We really needed this win. Badly. If I were in charge up there, heads would roll.

  54. What could be better? Packers fans sitting in the cold, and rain, on the night of the Brett Favre homecoming dance, and they have a chance at the end and……NO! Great Night! Thank you Bears!

    ___________________________

    How about this fact you’ve conveniently ignored? Rodgers also threw a pick that was ridiculously overturned on a bogus flag that was the only reason Green Bay went on to score their only TD.
    Rodgers was just plain awful all game.

  56. Congratulations to Bassplucker, Frank Booth and the rest of the Bear fans out there.
    Great win for you guys.

    I said all along that this wasn’t going to be a slam dunk like last week.
    Unfortunately, I was right.

    The NFC North is tightening up and there’s no letup. No time for setbacks.
    This Green Bay group is a decent team.
    Great? Yet to be seen.
    Rodgers needs to be sharper and our receivers need to stop dropping passes.
    Defense is solid, not spectacular.

    Still a lot of time to peak come late December.
    Always hope for this team.

  57. USDdoggy up to his old tricks. That’s some salty cheese!
    Anyone who puts this on A-Rodge or questions his co-status as the best in the league is delusional. That said, I look forward to hearing the delusional cheesers trying to blame this on A-Rodge’s gal.

  58. Good win Chicago . I allways felt bad for such a great player like butkus on holloween when favre had a great day playing in a monsoon. Well it`s about time MCcarthy stopped skating on AR and cupcake`s.

  59. Don’t care what anyone says, but as much as I love Teddy Bridgewater and genuinely believe that he has an excellent career ahead of him in Minnesota, I would dearly love to have Aaron Rodgers as our QB right now.

    It was good to see Favre and the Packers fans and team finally reconciled. A great player who was fun to watch… even when he was orchestrating a last minute drive to beat the Vikings. Respect should always be given where it is due.

  60. After losing the 4th out of their last 5 games, it is obvious that the Packers were super motivated last Sunday to at least win their Super Bowl against the Vikings.

    Last night with 2 of the best QB’s to ever play the game in attendance, against the team fans “claim” is their biggest rival the team managed to snatch defeat from the arms of victory.

    Their “leader” truly “led” the team by example. 51% pass completions, less than 5 yards per attempt, 62.4 QB rating and as many INT’s as TD’S is clearly not a recipe for success…

It started in the offseason. MacArthur has to go soon, capers scheme is outdated. I dunno, just my 3 cents. Still, GO PACK!!!

    So you’re a Big Packer fan but don’t know your own coach’s name? Or was that opening line a reference to your post-Thanksgiving girth?

  62. It always looks like the refs try hard to help the packers get a win. Not a fan of ol Ed Hocule crew! still the packers gave this away! Should be a meaningful game with the vikes the last Sunday!

  63. Keep the chin up packer backers, the league will figure out a way to give you the division title. They have to make it look somewhat legit right? No worries, the Green Bay Black Rhinos (protected) will prevail.

  64. M’boy Tracy, still pickin’ off the best: Rodgers and “best reader of defenses” Big Bro Manning (in Super Bowl 44) lol

  65. I’m sure the league is meeting this morning and coming up with a plan on how to make sure the packers stay atop of the division. So look for the least penalized team in the league (Vikings) to have flag after flag thrown against them this Sunday so the Falcons beat them. Thus Green Bay can remain division leaders.

  66. It appears that the easiest way to a win against the packers is when there is a high concentration of packer fans. It’s as if the fans are making them lose.

  67. Numba1wiscosportsfan. ????
    Yeah looks like a Vikings fan pretending to be a Packer Fan… Nice try joker!!!
    Maybe the Pack should just have road Lacy for one the entire game…Bears couldn’t stop him for most of it.
    Blame Rodgers? Sure he may have missed a few opportunities, but not nearly as many as there were bad drops l, poor routes, receivers that stopped short on there routes, and rarely attacked the ball… Rodgers can’t throw the ball and run the routes or catch them either… So until Adams gets his head in the game and Jones regains his fountain of youth or Janis breaks out or Montgomery actually makes it back to the line up… pack will be packing it in!

  68. Are these the same fans who said when Nelson went down that it would not hurt the passing game as we have all these great receivers !!

  69. What an embarrassment. farve embarrassed Starr embarrassed. The entire team embarrassed. Everyone embarassed on national tv first thanksgiving game in Lambeau.

    All of the fans should be embarrassed too but they are not because they are an embarrassment on a daily basis looking the way they do.

    Classic…..Only a Vikings fan would blame the referees before the game is played!!!

  71. Wow! Looks like Da Pack played the Vikings like it was their Super Bowl ! All down hill Pack fans from here. At least the Vikings win games we are supposed to win!

  72. Ba Starr had absolutely nothing to do with the success of Brett Favre and his jersey number. His inclusion in last nights half time ceremonies was a lame attempt by Packer management to upstage Favre by giving Starr equal time and attention. Very dysfunctional.

  73. Chicago did an amazing job on the road. They had an uphill battle and showed great character. It’s tough when the home squad gets a 12 to 3 penalty margin and gets five 1st downs due to penalty to just one for the road team. Yet Chicago found a way.

    It was funny when the announcers decided to make “guttural noises” instead of comments after the frequent questionable calls during the contest.

    Go Pats!

    ****************************

    You got it half right.

    Rodgers does need to be better.

    It might help if he didn’t make consistently throw the ball over their heads or expect them to catch the ball on the second bounce… 😉

  76. The problem is clear: Rodgers announced that he historically likes the balls slightly overinflated and the league is not letting that happen this year.

    Sounds reasonable, right everyone?

  77. Rodgers is an absolute elite qb in this league playing with the absolute worse group of receivers in the league. The number one receiver Cobb is not a #1 receiver, but simply a lazy slot receiver who continues to play as if nothing more than a talented rookie. Cobb’s production is clearly hampered by the lack of a stretch the field threat, but his quiting in the middle of play makes him a very average football player (see his lack of positioning for a block on second down at game’s end–a block that would have won game for his team). (If not playing injured) Adams will not be in the NFL in two years. Really, what team’s receiving resources are worse than GB? I sure can’t name one.

  79. Porter didn’t get a hand on the pass Jones dropped until after it was dropped. Also, the pass that was “over Adams’ head” was still very catchable.

    Favre spoiled many Bear’s fans’s game days over the years. I’m sure they can’t feel to bad about spoiling his night!

    Rodgers the GOAT? Lol!
    ———————————————————
    I agree, Rodgers is the GOAT. Just ask his league-leading career passer rating by 8 points.

    Ba Starr had absolutely nothing to do with the success of Brett Favre and his jersey number. His inclusion in last nights half time ceremonies was a lame attempt by Packer management to upstage Favre by giving Starr equal time and attention. Very dysfunctional.
    —————————————
    You obviously don’t know what you’re talking about. Favre wanted Starr to be there. He considered Starr as a major mentor to him during his career and wanted him to also be honored partly for that reason and partly because of his failing health. It was a classy move on his part and has nothing to do with what you mean spirit-ably describe as “dysfunction”

  82. Not that any Bears, Lions, or Vikings fans will listen, but

    1. Rodgers led a 4th quarter comeback against the 12-4 Cowboys last year.

    2. He has 31 4th quarter game-tying/go-ahead drives and drives where he put the Packers in their kicker’s range only to watch the kicker miss the field goal.

    3. Out of the 21 games that he has “failed to lead a 4th quarter comeback” against a winning team, he has lead game-tying/go-ahead drives in 13 of those games.

    I’d say that’s pretty darn clutch.

  83. It wouldn’t be football season without the Heidis complaining about flags and penalties.
    Oddly enough, this wasn’t even their game and the Packers lost and they still whine.

    What an sad and soulless fan base.
    They must still be smarting from that 17 point beat down they suffered at home last week.
    Oh, I’m sorry, it was all the refs fault, right?

  84. 1. Packers-Giants playoff game in January 2012
    2. Packers-Seahawks game in September 2012

    I bet you Packer haters will tell me only one of those games was poorly officiated.

    How’s that working out for you Packers fans? Got beat by the Bears, that’s pretty pathetic. Talking trash about last week over the Vikings. Now back to the nfc north bottom and quit talking trash when you can’t even beat the Bears.
    ———————————————————
    If the Packers are so bad that they can’t beat the Bears, what does that say about the Vikings who lost to the Packers?

  86. I notice nobody is complaining about the ridiculous pass interference call on James Jones that moved the Packers away from the 1-yard line.

  87. Oh look. Some of the packer trolls coming out of hiding reliving ancient history.

    Pathetic. If I wasn’t such a hater I’d be embarrassed for you. But I’m not.

    How did the Vikings lose to this team at home?

    ———————————————————–

    Simple. Because they are the Vikings. Some teams don’t have the DNA to play well when the lights are on and the chips are down; Vikings, Bengals, Bills, Eagles to name a few a few.

    I noticed not a single packer fan complaining about the refs. Hmm…

    We leave that to the Vikings fans….see above!!!

  90. My apologies to the Bear fans.
    Your team played a great game last night and converted a big win at Lambeau.

    Unfortunately, you have to be subjected to all of the Heidi’s nonsensical, never ending babble.
    54 years of being ridiculed and laughed at, I suppose, would turn ordinary reasonable people into blathering idiots.
    Just review the comments above.

    54 years of embarrassing performances, underachieving to downright poor football play, could turn anyone into bitter, joyless cretins.

    Congrats again, Bear fans on a well fought victory.
    Looks like we’ll have to wait ’till next year to try and knot our historic rivalry up.

    The Vikings should have been in the Super Bowl in 2009, and the way they played that year, they would have hands down won the title.

    *******************************

    Someone is very delusional after eating too much turkey.

  92. I also notice that Bear fans had no problem with the refs blowing the whistle for an off-sides penalty. If the refs had let them play, Cobb would’ve broken free for a touchdown.

  93. If the refs had let them play, Cobb would’ve broken free for a touchdown.

    Probably the same guy that said amendola would have been immediately tackled if the guy didn’t “let up” after the blown whistle

    Keep twisting yourselves into pretzels pack fans

  94. I absolutely loved when the refs blew that play dead instead of giving the pack another illegal free play. Finally got it right and blew the play dead as soon as the O lineman moved before the snap

    But pack trolls will argue they were wrong because it gives mr Munn a free play w no consequences

    FINALLY

  95. So Carl Gerbschmidt says ” zebras stole one but we’ll be fine ” really Carl ? didn’t see the phantom tripping call when your Packer trips over a fallen Bears player ? What about the extremely lame pass interference call on Porter ? which everyone including the announcers thought were a joke ! I’m surprised you even came out after such a pathetic loss. You usually go into hiding after the Packers choke, you know, like after last years historic mega collapse in Seattle ! What are you gonna say when your team loses to Detroit again ?

  96. The Bears played well to win at Lambeau last night. Tracy Porter made some great plays. It was about much-maligned QB Jay Cutler not turning the ball over. It wasn’t all about Aaron Rodgers state-of-play; give the Bears defense a lot of credit, and the coaching staff as well, which has given this team purpose and structure, things that didn’t exist under Trestman.

    And then all the Vikings’ fans chimed in to make it all about them. Because we all care about what the Vikings’ fans think.

    And began to call out the refs again. Of course, they ignored the light Josh Sitton holding call that nullified a long Rodgers first down run in the red zone. They ignored the fact that a whistle shouldn’t have been blown on a Bears’ offsides that may have resulted in a Packers’ TD, since there was no Bear unabated to the QB. And if the refs were pulling for the Packers, they certainly would have called a phantom PI or something in the last Packer series to give Rodgers more chances.

    The Bears won last night. The Packers beat the Vikings last week- and neither had anything to do with the refs, but the Vikings’ fans insipid comments continue.

    But it’s nice to see that Vikings’ fans need to live through Bears’ fans vicariously, when their team can’t get the job done.

    Win your own Super Bowl against the Packers, Vikings’ fans. And it is your Super Bowl- not the Packers. The Vikings’ aren’t the Packers biggest game of the season, especially when they are 1-1-10 against them.

    But I get Minnesota fans. I spend a lot of time in Minnesota. I get that “Minnesota nice” has less to do with kindness and more to do with passive-aggressive behavior.

    And their sports fans don’t know how to win or lose. As you can see, the Bears’ fans aren’t on here gloating. I guess we have the Vikings’ fans here to do that for us- because it’s important that we all know what they think. But Bears’ fans have a good awareness about our team and where the Bears’ stand.

    Minnesota fans have a horrible inferiority complex. 2 World Series Championships in 87 and 91, and then back to the 50’s for Minneapolis Lakers championships- and they left the state.

    Big hockey state. Stanley Cups? 0 between the Stars and Wild. And the Stars left the state. The Chicago Blackhawks have 3 cups in the last 5 years.

    Basketball? We had Michael Jordan and numerous championships and still have a contending team. Congratulations to the Lynx on their WNBA championships.

    Baseball- Minnesota has a newer stadium where attendance and fan base has been dwindling over the last several years. Nice support, Minnesota. Chicago has a long-suffering but up-and-coming Cubs team playing in an iconic stadium

    Football- 0 Super Bowls, including 3 with a HOF Coach, HOF QB, 5 other Hall-of-Famers, and blew it every time. And Fran Tarkenton failed miserably, with a QB rating of 14.1 in one of those games. The Bears’ have a Super Bowl win, multiple NFL championships, and were instrumental in building and developing the NFL, so teams like the Vikings could ride in on the coattails of that.

    Act like you’ve been there before, Vikings’ fans, even though you really haven’t. You’re sore winners, and sore losers. Learn how to do both.

  97. Stop talking about the whistle getting blown on the Cobb play. When Chicago jumped offsides, GB’s RG initiated contact ending the play. Blowing the whistle was the correct call. Stop listening to what Collinsworth says and you might get something right.

  98. Has anyone else noticed that there are more Vikings fans posting here than packers/bears fans combined? Damn it must really suck to pull for such a pathetic team that you’re happier when a superior team loses than when your team wins. oh well that’s a contra type fan base, obviously

    And apparently, Chicago sports fans have an abundance of time on their hands……wow!

  100. How about some credit for John Fox?

    I was never a fan of his and thought he was a mediocre coach, but he’s found a way to motivate Cutler and get these guys playing harder and smarter.

    Booth is a Bear fan.

    They won their Super Bowl on Thanksgiving.
    ==================================
    That’s true. Because of the Bears performance the last several years, and their inability to make the playoffs, this has pretty much been the Bears’ Super Bowl. The Bears are 3-10 against the Packers over the last 6 years.

    The Vikings are 1-1-10 against the Packers.

    Too bad you lost your Super Bowl last weekend.

    It was good to see the Bears win at Lambeau. Hopefully they can win on the road in Minnesota. The Bears and Vikings are pretty evenly matched.

  103. Vikings played the Bears in Chicago and beat them in a tight game. Everyone except NE and Carolina are unpredictable, including the Vikings and Packers. Both have critical injuries. It’s no excuse, it’s fact and in both cases its an area of weakness.

    Aaron Rodgers threw 2 passes at the end that got dropped by his receivers in the end zone. But Bears, Lions, and Vikings fans will blame him for the loss and say he “isn’t clutch,” facts be damned.

    ***

    Fact: he’s clutch, but those were not catch-able passes. I thought he’d get it, but Chicago has improved. John Fox is very underrated.

  104. The Bears, Lions and Vikings own the NFC North. The packers gifted style of winning does not jive with what the black and blue division stands for. Send the California kid mr erin rodgers back to the golden state so he can bask in his natural habitat and be with his beautiful supermodel girlfriend. #skol
