10 Thoughts From the Bears v. Packers Game

This was an interesting match-up before it started. Chicago had been involved in the tight games with the Falcons and the Steelers. The Packers offensive line was missing its tackles and would be vulnerable against the Chicago front seven.

  1. Tony Romo was working this game. My first impression of his voice was it was weird
  2. Ty Montgomery getting hurt is a big blow to the Packers. They don’t really have another running back that scares me.
  3. Aaron Rodgers is too good. He is hands down the most talented quarterback in the league. He should have more Super Bowl wins/appearances if they could stay healthy
  4. Mike Glennon is a terrible quarterback. His turnovers destroyed any chance his team had to win the game or even make it a competitive game.
  5. The Bears offensive line is pretty good. It’s a shame Glennon is so bad.
  6. A 45 minute lightning storm probably caused half the people who were watching the game to go do something else; unless some on their fantasy team was playing (I had Devante Adams and the Packers kicker).
  7. Speaking of Devante Adams, the brutal hit he suffered was ridiculously unnecessary. Ironically he had a touchdown called back by a holding call on the previous play.
  8. All Jordy Nelson does is score touchdowns. He had two more on Thursday night.
  9. Jordan Howard is a tough hombre. He insisted on running tough in a blowout with a hurt shoulder. He is the kind of leader his teammates want to follow.
  10. I was really excited to see Tarik Cohen because he was doing some video game like things the first three weeks of the season. He didn’t do much at all.
