Week 2: Chicago at Green Bay

Blame in football is not fairly distributed. The quarterback, for example, often gets all the blame when a team loses. Thursday night will be another example of the fact that football is unfair - because the Chicago Bears are going to pay for our mistakes!!!! 

Well, now he's mad. And Jay Cutler will feel it.

Thursday Night Football still sucks, but since the Packers are playing, I’ll have to watch. The Bears better watch out, because if the Packers are half as pissed as I am about Sunday’s loss, it’ll be a long night for Chicago.

There’s no denying that Chicago’s offense has finally joined the big boys. Even if there are still issues at the offensive line, having receivers like Brandon Marshall, rookie Alshon Jeffrey, Earl Bennett, and Devin Hester, as well as a backfield of Matt Forte and Michael Bush, does a lot to cover any ills on the line. Defense like Packers played against San Fran won’t cut it.

The most upsetting part of the loss to the 49ers was the offensive struggles. The Packers were unable to break free for any of the explosive down-field plays that characterized their offense last season. They’ll be seeing the same Cover-2 defense from Chicago that gave them so much trouble against San Francisco. I think a heavy dose of Jordy is in order.

"Out of my way, Donald! I got places to be - the ENDZONE!"
Greg Jennings did not finish the game on Sunday due to a groin injury and has not practiced since. I hope they’re just being cautious. He's officially listed as "doubtful," which means about a 25% chance he'll play, and a source says he's "50-50." The Packers do have a long week of rest coming up, but, considering their depth at receiver, it might be wise to let Greg sit this one out.

We'll need you and your swagger for the rest of the season!

The Bears beat a team that went 2-14 last season, had a rookie quarterback making his NFL debut, lost their best player in Dwight Freeney in the first quarter, and lost their starting right tackle later in the game. Congratulations. Those caveats, however, are not enough to keep Jay from taunting the Packers. Bring it, Jay. Bring it.

I hope Jay Cutler spends more time on the ground than upright on Thursday. The record for the the most times a quarterback was sacked in a game is 12. I think we can beat that. I'll give you a step-by-step preview:

See ya Thursday!
