    I wouldn't put much of anything past the Bears. They played their starters trying to keep the Packers out of the playoffs, don't think for one second they wouldn't resort to such tactics. I honestly don't care what the Bears try to to, I think the Packers are more prepared for this game than we could possibly believe. If we are aware of the field conditions you can rest assured the Packers are too and are already all over that. They are used to cold weather and such conditions, they are better suited than anybody to deal with it. The Bears may of chosen the wrong team to play field condition games with. Mind you, the Bears are playing on the same field in the same conditions. I don't care how used to it they are, they will still have to deal with random slips that are out of their control.

    I don't think the field will stand in the way of the Packers Superbowl dreams any more than the Bears. It surely is something to consider but I'd be more worried about the Bears than the field.

    What would happen if the field failed on Saturday? I think if it wasn't up to regulations, the turf is too hard or its not suitable for the players. IDK what qualifies for that, but what if it fails?

    I don't know what parameters they use to determine of a field is unplayable but I do know that a field has to be really really bad to be considered unplayable.

    As an example, the last year the Eagles played at Veterans Stadium, they redid the field, I forget what exactly they did, but there was this really big rainstorm before the opening game that pretty much rendered the playing field useless. It was bad enough that they had to postpone that game.

    at least it looks to be in the double digits for that game, and only a chance of flurries, I think the Pack can play in that. At least I hope tehy could.

    I'd like to see Soldier field emptying around the end of the 3rd quarter if you know what I mean.

    Hell yeah! That's what happened in the Falcons game!!! The Packers made all the Birdies fly away! Who is to say they can't stomp the Bears right out of their cave?

    All we shall hear is, "Go Pack Go" from the 3rd quarter out. :chisux:

    I want the Steelers to win their game and we win ours.

    I would love a Steelers vs Packers for a Super Bowl. 2 of the best franchises batting for the Lombardi Trophy. That would be a Damn good game.

    I agree on the fear of a game changing moment from Hester, but i really fear that we wont be able to contain Forte this game...if we can stop him from big gains in both passing and rushing, we have a great shot.

    No, a bad field actually benefits the offense and would hurt their D which is the only thing they have going for them. Well, that and ST.

    Remember Jenkins wasn't around the last game we played em. Gonna be harder for them to run on us with Jenkins in there. I'm not worried. Plus, if we go up on them fast, they'll have to pass it and get out of running the ball.

    And now for the glass half full point of view. This ain't the Seahawks defense Cutler will be playing against. He'll be playing against a defense that is really hitting it's stride. His defense will also be facing an offense that just recently became doubly dangerous.

    They used to think they could just get to Rodgers and the game would be contained. But now the offense discovered James Starks and it discovered it does the screen very well. These are great offensive plays to keep the heat toned down.

    Guys are getting healthy at just the right time and the team is just beginning to peak. I'm not nervous about this game.

    I am ticked, however, that we drew the same Ref we had against the Bears in the first match-up of the season. Has anybody found a way yet to pay him more than Chicago can?

    We're a better team, but they've been lucky as hell all year long, starting in week one with the gift of a win handed to them over Calvin Johnson's Lions, in Chicago.

    Notice at the 43 second mark, the zebra right in perfect position puts his arms up for the TD signal.

    President Obama picked the Bears to win. Hopefully the Refs are Republicans!
