    Studs, Totally agree with the Stud views out there...
    Duds, I willalso pile on the MM bad wagon thought he had got in my med cabinet with that B*** S*** call..
    Duds, Troy Aikman, Joe Buck for trying to pile on S Sheilds for a PI, what they failed to see at least twice was Jeffery grabbing SS face mask..
    Dud, Morgan Burnett just keeps getting burned like toast on deep balls...

    Only one issue with your post. Hawk might have better numbers than Willis, but that doesn't make him better.

    Jumping on top of piles to get tackle assist doesnt make you a good player, and the reason he is never hurt is becuase he plays soft and avoids hard contact. Ive never seen a linebacker on the ground grabbing at ankles as much as Hawk has this year. Ive defended him in the past, but this year has been by far his worst, and saying his numbers are better than Patrick Willis and briggs is a joke. The guy cant make an open field tackle to save his life. He constantly ends up on the turf or just completely whiffs. Being an ILB is no excuse for having virtually zero big plays in two years. I would be happy with one good tackle on a RB without ending up on the ground.

    Have you actually watched him at all this year? He's been pathetic.

    Jones is the one who jumps on piles. I'd take another Hawk instead.

    Hawks play has picked up this season due to his weight loss, and despite being rotating to the weak side, where he struggles, he has put up solid numbers including some impact tackles.

    You sir either have not been watching, or have a terrible bias.

    So you didn't see brad jones stop the 2nd and 3rd down runs on the 1 yard line to force the bears to a FG brad had one bad play followed up by 5-8 good plays and he's a dud? Re watch the game and see what he does

    I didn't say Brad Jones. I said Brad Jones covering Marshall and whomever is responsible for him covering Marshall on that play.

    He is playing out of position next to nobodies for a good part of the season and he is almost always around the ball. He inst a big name top 3 in the league guy but he starting caliber and would start on most teams in the NFL. He's having arguably the best season of his career and has really been a constant fixture on the D where so many guys have been in and out due to injury. I like him a lot more this year than last and I am excited to see him and Bishop on the field together again next year. But, until then I hope he stays healthy and keeps gobbling up the tackles.

    Wanted to add that Masthay did great on that one kick.
    Also since this thread seems to go on detail did anyone hear the Packer fan cursing at the Bears in the middle of the game.

    What follows is a verbatim of the exchange that happened between Jack (my son. 3 years old. Packer diehard) and myself:

    Me : "AWWW! COME ON!"
    Jack : "AWWW those dirty BEARS!"
    Me : "Yeah, they're bad news aren't they?"
    Jack : "Yeah! They're bad! They take! And the Packers are good! They give!"

    Hahaha.

    Thanks, bud. You're right; though it didn't make me feel much better about that play....

    I'll be glad to pile on that one. Arrogant, unconscionable, inexcusable, knuckle headed, ludicrous, just plain stupid...did I leave anything out?

    At least McCarthy went for it on 4th. and 2 instead of trying a 54 yd. FG. One step forward, one step back. Going for it on 4th. and 6 instead of kicking a 43 yarder looks like the end of the vote of confidence for Crosby.

    Bears were 0-10 on 3rd. and 4th. down. Outstanding defensive effort all around.

    This game was not as close as the score.

    Finally !!!! someone gave props. Raji was all in the backfield, busting up runs, smacking cutler around. The bears O line was holding him all damn day due to him causing hate in the backfield. He did a great job, no plays off for him.

    It would have been smarter for the Packers not to have anyone back on that punt return. It would have been much smarter to instruct Cobb to stand on the 10-yard line and fair catch any ball he could easily get to, and let everything else bounce around. That was a gigantically stupid call. The only thing worse would be for McCarthy not to take responsibility for it.

    Studs: Packers third down defense!!! Didn't allow a single conversion in 9 tries. (I believe it was 9, not 10, but either way a supreme effort.) Packers goal line defense!

    Stud not mentioned: Mike Neal. If he can continue to progress, that'll be big for the D.

    BTW, I don't fault Brad Jones at all for not being able to cover Marshall. That was the scheme IMO - a CB has to have tighter coverage on the only receiver Cutler trusts all the time. If you want to have a LB help underneath, OK but Jones was the closest to him on the TD pass and that was the scheme's fault IMO.

    Also, I'm pretty sure Peppers' helmet collided with Rodgers' helmet on that sack. One can argue about how the rules have changed to protect QBs, but under the current rules IMO that was clearly a penalty. Non-call on Shields at the end of the game was bad, particularly with how close they were calling offensive interference.

    The 0-10 posted earlier was for 3rd. and 4th. down, as noted in that post. 0-9 on 3rd. down is as you stated. That's outstanding, and the reason the Bears only go 48 offensive plays and 190 yds. Only one play over 20 yds., Forte's 22 yd. run. The Bears biggest gainer of the day was on the Burnett pass interference.
