Pack D is back

Posted on: September 25, 2011 7:21 pm

CHICAGO -- Warning to the rest of the NFL: The Green Bay Packers are starting to look like the version you saw in the playoffs last winter.

The first two weeks of the season saw a Green Bay team that looked lifeless on defense, giving up over 400 yards passing to two quarterbacks in consecutive weeks -- one rookie Cam Newton.

There were questions about the pass rush. There were questions about the secondary.

Nothing like a game against Jay Cutler and the Bears passing game to fix it.

The Packers came into Soldier Field and dominated the Bears on the same field they won their spot in the Super Bowl last January before going on to win the whole thing. The Packers won 27-17, but there was never really a moment when you didn't think they were in control.

The Green Bay offense did its share again, but the defense started showing signs of being the unit that flashed in the playoffs.  They picked off Cutler twice and limited the Bears to almost nothing in the second half.  The Bears couldn't run the ball, getting held to 4 yards.

That meant they forced Cutler to throw it all day -- which he struggled to do.

The return of corner Tramon Williams from injury helped. He missed last week with a shoulder bruise. 

With Aaron Rodgers and that high-powered offense scoring at least 27 in each of their three games, you know that unit is almost a given. Now that the defense is coming alive again, the Packers have that Super look again.

No excuses Bears fans, Green Bay is a much better team than Chicago!!  They aren't even on the same level, that win last year against Green Bay was a mirage.  Chicago has no QB, no WR, a RB that only plays well against below average teams.  Chicago should start thinking about finishing last place so they can draft Andrew Luck because Jay Cutler is god awful.  Say what you want about the "immaturity" about my post Bears fans.....your team is terrible!!!!      
; Bear Down........about 22 of them!!!!  Later!!!

P.S.  Has Chicago ever had a QB that is decent to somewhat good????

The defense did look better, but I don't think the Bears are that good a test. The real tests come later on.
