    With all the excitement about #12 being back and getting caught up in the excitement we forgot how bad this oline can look at times. In a perfect world Rodgers wouldn't get touched but we all know he will get hit on Sunday..it's going to happen. How many times is the question. Theres not one linemen playing for the Packers who can seem to block Peppers 1 on 1 and MCclellan destroyed Barclay and whoever else played RT in the first game.

    As excited as i am i'm also very nervous for #12. I hope the gameplan is pound it early and often against that horrible run d and about 10,000 variations of a screen play. I hope the o-line is challenged this week by the staff and can get the job done.

    Don't forget the chip blocks with backs and tightends as well.

    Rodgers needs to be conscious of how long he holds the ball for. He's responsible for more sacks than anyone on the O line

    Exactly. Rodgers is our biggest problem. The last 7 games clearly show that.

    Packers have given up 42 sacks. Tied for 9th most, but also only 2 more sacks than teams tied for 18th.

    Packers line has given up 71 QB hits, good for 20th lowest in the NFL.

    So, the Packers line is not as bad as many think. Also, you have to wonder how many of those sacks/hits were taken because of the inexperience of Tolzein, Wallace, and Flynn. And Rodgers got hurt when he rolled out of a pocket that wasn't necessarily collapsing to buy time. The sack he was hurt on was more his fault than the lines.

    With that being said, I would imagine Rodgers is being advised to take what's there for them and not take unnecessary risks like scrambling or rolling out to buy time - easier said than done.

    How does the staff ensure Rodgers doesn’t get hurt? They can’t. They’ll run the ball a lot because the Bears struggle to stop the run. And they'll probably have a lot of three-step drops in the game plan. But there will probably be some 5-step drops too. ivo610 is right about Rodgers holding onto the ball, but that’s Rodgers’ responsibility, not the staff’s.
    No matter how often that nonsense is refuted this Favre-fan can't help but sing this same old song. And here's a news flash for all Favre-fans: The team Thompson built won a title in spite of the mistakes of his predecessor.

    He is also to blame for the 17 sacks Flyyn had, the 3 of Tolzien and the 4 in one game Wallace had....

    Oh course not, but holding the ball longer than avg results in sacks, no matter the level of the o line.

    His history of being responsible for his own sacks is well known and documented.

    Some fans have a hard time assigning blame to their fav players.

    Exactly again. I've alway said that if AR were to be more like Ponder, he'd be able to make a career in the NFL

    You're right, Rodgers is flawless. Like Ted Thompson and Brett Favre.

    He's as close to flawless as anything in this team. That's all that matters.

    That's right. Rodgers is a fantastic QB but there was a reason for McCarthy to have a horn go off after 2.5 seconds in TC to make him more aware of getting the ball out quickly.

    Sorry but when you post a stats that's value ranks QBs in our division in the opposite order that 90% of us would rank them, you have to question the value of the metric.

    Hmm if you fell into line with popular opinion on this forum what would you think of yourself?

    Agree on the high percentage quick passes - hitches, slants, outs, and run the ball. The Bears will also try coming after Rodgers early. I would script in a couple of screen passes early on.
