Should the Green Bay Packers kept Aaron Rodgers in Sunday night’s game to set some passing records against the team’s longtime rival, the Chicago Bears?

Should they have poured it on in the second half?

After all, how often do opportunities like this come along to bury a storied rival in your home stadium and keep them buried for the next year?

Well, those questions are moot this morning as we all awake from the trouncing of the decade.

Remember last night when we started our cheering early in the game and didn’t stop it until the final nail was pounded into the Bears’ coffin?

That’s another NFC North rival the Packers have passed by.

Heading into the game, nobody really knew which Packers team would show up last night.

Would it be the team that had won four straight until the debacle just before the bye in New Orleans?

Or would it be the team with the defense that had been getting gashed for huge chunks of real estate – the team with the worst (or close to it) run defense in the National Football League?

Would it be an offensive line limping through another lackluster performance – especially given that both guards, Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang, were operating on less-than-100 percent power?

Well, we all saw who showed up …

It was a defense with Clay Matthews moved inside beside A.J. Hawk – a move that appears to be pure genius.

It was an offensive line that protected Aaron Rodgers beautifully and opened holes for the run game – and who can forget the screen play touchdown pass to Eddie Lacy that developed right before everyone’s eyes?

Or would the Packers show up with Jay Cutler in their sights and poised to pick his passes?

Well, we all know how it turned out … and we all saw Aaron Rodgers dominate a half of football unlike we’ve seen in Green Bay – probably one of the top five performances of a quarterback ever for the Packers.

That said, we’ve put together a video display of every touchdown that Rodgers threw Sunday night …

Turn the pages and enjoy them one more time …
