Green Bay Packers: One-on-one with

3 of 6

More scenes like this one would be a welcome sight in Sunday’s NFC North matchup at Soldier Field.

Lombardiave: Worried? Nah, not this fan base.

In 2010 we went into the playoffs as a wild card and blistered the competition. I could see how a fan base that hasn’t celebrated since 1985 would be freaking out.

Mike McCarthy has a winning percentage of .875 following a bye week. He is also 20-4-1 with an .820 winning percentage at Lambeau Field versus the NFC North.

New Orleans has a great leader and quarterback in Drew Brees and was destined to break out eventually. Unfortunately, that came against the Packrs. When ‘Smoking’ Jay Cutler loses to the Packers he has only eight touchdowns to 10 interceptions. However, when he has been able to beat the Packrs, he has seven touchdowns and zero interceptions.

How will Jay fare on Sunday night at Lambeau?

Beargoggleson: OK, OK … Cool your jets there, Mr. confidence.

The Saints have been horrible so far this year and the Packers looked lost against the Saints.

Now I’m not saying that the Packers are not good, but I am saying that you can’t be blind to their problem. How about a run defense that is giving up over 150 yards per game? That’s a recipe for disaster.

Just ask any Bears fans about last year. If you can’t stop the run, you can’t win.

I’m sorry, you asked about Smokin’ Jay. Yeah, I don’t expect Jay to light up the scoreboard on Sunday night. His hands are going to be tied and the ball is going to be in Matt Forte’s hands a lot – both running and receiving. If not, then Jay is going to throw interceptions and turn the ball over in stupid ways and the Bears won’t have a fraction of a chance to stay even with the Packers.

I have accepted the fact that Jay Cutler sucks against the Packers, plain and simple. He just can’t beat them.

So if the Bears want to win, they have to feed the ball to Matt Forte. So back to that whole run defense thing. what’s going on with the Packers defense? I thought Julius Peppers was going to be the difference-maker the Packers needed to take that next step into the playoffs?
