Week 1: Bears @ Stupid Cheeseheads 7:20pm NBC

Postby Old Style » Tue Sep 04, 2018 2:27 pm

I cannot wait for kickoff so let's get the game thread started. I still can't believe Khalil Mack is a Chicago Bear. He is going to ruin A-Aron's night.

Luckily there is football on all day, because Sunday night football is a long time to wait.

Yeah, I'll likely be hammered before kickoff. Good times await.

As always, I've been jocking the Bears hard, but if they lose this game I will consider the season to be over.

GB -9 seems ridiculous to me, but maybe that just shows how much of a homer I am.

Been thinking the Bears will lose this one, believe we'll see glimpses of what they're heading towards. I've feeling they'll make some mistakes that'll cost them game, from the Packers side not one of those ho-hum we beat the crappy Bears again. But, we won, I'll take it and if the Bears become more consistent our series dominance is over.

I saw it opened at GB -8 and after the trade is GB -7.5. I guess there isn't much of a difference between -7.5 and -9 though.

Just saw it say -9 on the Yahoo Sports app. Seems like it is closer to -7.5 at many books.

Is it wrong I was still hoping Smith would start?

Goals:

O-Line doesn't get Trubisky killed.
WRs look like a functional unit.
Nagy develops a modern game plan.
The defense pressures Rodgers.

This is the good stuff.

https://m.cheeseheadtv.com/blog/bears-a ... -north-659

After extending Aaron Rodgers, the Packers sites must now be turned to fortifying their offensive line in any and every way possible in order to keep him on the field for the duration of his new contract. In order to do this in the short term, the Packers will have to scour the free agent market in the next 24-48 hours in search of any tackles that may be available to upgrade the offensive line; and in the long term, they must seriously consider drafting an offensive tackle with one of their first-round selections in the 2019 NFL Draft.


I realize that each and every season the majority of pundits ask the question of whether the Packers defense can be a middle of the pack group and make enough plays on a consistent basis for the team to win but, moving forward, the real question should be whether the Packers offensive line is capable of protecting Aaron Rodgers.

That’s a pretty grim assessment from someone who should know the Packers pretty well. Bulaga is coming back from an ACL tear and hadn’t played many snaps in the preseason. For some reason, all the talking heads seem to think the Bears are just going to do the Packers a favor in maybe their biggest game of the season and play Mack sparingly due to conditioning concerns and his short time with the playbook.

Maybe that’s the case but it doesn’t seem like a great idea to me, and I doubt Mack is very far out of game shape. And if the options are vanilla plays with Mack or getting fancy with Acho I know what I’m gonna hope they do.

What would make sense to me is pretending that Roquan Smith isn’t going to play much when the plan is actually for him to get the majority of the snaps. And hiding your offense as much as possible in the preseason, even to the point of sitting most of them.

I think the Bears come out hot on offense and defense and win this game. It doesn’t come down to stuff like this usually I know (especially when one team has Rodgers) but how many of their position groups would you take over the Bears? QB, TE, CB, safety? I certainly prefer the Bears WR, RB, LB, and DL. I prefer the KC scheme to what the Packers run, and I prefer Fangio’s system to most.

One thing people don’t seem to be considering is that the Vegas lines are a reflection more of what betters think of the two teams than what Vegas thinks. The Packers have stomped the Bears forever, so I don’t have as much confidence that they’ll win this as I do that the Bears will gel and make the playoffs, but I do think the Bears are better.

Also David, are you DavidH on ChiCitySports? That guy posted a great write up on Nagy’s KC offense and how it will set Trubisky up for success. I don’t want to repost it if it’s yours but it was real good and would fit nicely right here.
