  1. This is why I’d rather they not play the Vikings the first game of the year, after the Vikings have been preparing for their SuperBowl since the schedule was released.

  2. Never seen a teams OL get away with holding as much as GB’s. They hold damn near every play and don’t get called. Even the play where they sacked Rodgers, and a flag was thrown, they picked the flag up when Jenkins was riding the dude like a horse.

  3. They just showed snaps focusing on Kenny Clark. HE was held on all of them except for one where he was tackled.

  4. Collinsworth had it right in the 4th quarter. The whole world could tell that Green Bay had 100 million more on the field than the Bears did but that 100 mill goes into the pockets of the McCaskey clan and they can live with that. Once again Rogers 1 Bears zilch.

    the only positive is that Green Bay did not really look that good either. the Bears just were horrible.
