Behind Enemy Lines…Chicago Bears Edition

Posted on


If you are anything like us, you probably spent much of this week attempting to justify the Packers recent offensive woes. Well you can relax now, Aaron Rodgers said so. Following their 19-7 loss to Detroit in Week 3, will Mike McCarthy and his team right the ship on Sunday? Only time will tell.

For now it’s time to plunge into the heart of Bears country and see what those delusional Ditka worshipers are up to. This week we took to the BearsFansOnline, BearsHeadquarters and BearsReport forums in search of some All-Pro commentary.

One realistic fan, a voice of reason within the sea of nonsense, knows exactly what it will take for the Bears to walk out of Soldier Field with a win; “No one is taking this game for granted.  With marginal linebacking play and a banged up safety position you can’t take any game for granted.  Playing against Aaron Rodgers is always a nightmare. It will boil down to pressure from our D line, corner play, and turnovers. Thus we need a mistake free Cutler.”

Another diehard, still sulking over last season’s Week 17 collapse, writes, “I don’t know if it’s the Packers finding a way to win these games, or if it’s the Bears finding a way to lose these games, but that’s what always happens. Packers 31, Bears 17.” Another gentleman echoed his statement by adding, “Seems no matter how well the Bears may be doing any given season, the Packers give them heartbreak and heartache on a routine basis…sometimes it is simple blundering by the Bears handing the game to the Packers in an embarrassing manner…more often it is simply the Packers making the plays the Bears couldn’t.  I hate the f*****g Packers…HATE THEM …but I also respect them.”

Next we stumble upon some followers who found a common bond over the things they don’t have – classic uniforms, a Super Bowl winning quarterback and so on. “I hate there ugly unis I hate that damn cheese they wear on their stupid head. I hate Rodgers and his dumb discount double franking check commercials.” Try not to laugh when another fan jumps in and says, “I hate all those things about the Pukers to! I change the channel every time Rogers comes on with that stupid discount doublecheck and I don’t have insurance with State Farm but if I did I would cancel it. I also don’t like that the trophy is named after Vince Lombardi when it should be named after George Halas because he won a lot more championships than Vince Lombardi.”

Finally, much is being made of Julius Peppers’ return to Chicago after signing with the Packers this offseason. Many fans want to chalk this up as something of a revenge game but the veteran outside linebacker has other thoughts:

Was that Peppers taking a subtle shot at his former team or just his reserved personality? Regardless of his intent, the Packers will need another sound performance from Peppers and the defense if they want to avoid a 1-3 record to start the season.
