    FYI it was in Minnesota mannn

    Nice wins so far boys- nothin wrong with that loss either Masler - San Fran will be knocking on the Super Bowl door this year.

    Also hell you could probably list all injuries on there too -- I don't think there would be a lot of em. Just some input bud.

    I'm not pleased with the play of my offensive line today, especially in pass protection (big shock). There were several instances where Cutler got earholed when Indy was only bringing 3 or 4 guys. C Roberto Garza and LG Chris Spencer may see the bench in favor of younger players who can't possibly be worse.

    I dominated the passing game except for two picks, one was my fault, the other was overthrown. Final 30 seconds he managed to get the jump ball and got the score, got ballsy and went for 2, had no chance against Gore

    My line played really well I thought. I don't do anything really fancy though so I don't ask much of them.

    Plus AP is an absolute horse.

    Week 2: Chicago @ Green Bay

    Lambeau Field is sure to be rocking this Thursday night as Chicago comes to town in an early season showdown with the hometown Packers. Chicago is coming off a gritty win over a determined Colts team that nearly came back behind rookie Andrew Luck in his first professional game, and on the flip side you have a hungry Packers squad who is coming off a last second loss to San Francisco after Lamichael James outran the Green Bay defense to get the two pointer. Regardless of what happened last week, this is Green Bay and Chicago- you know it's going to be a dandy.

    The big X factor for this game, I believe, is going to be the ability of Chicago to run the ball in order to 1) Keep Aaron Rodgers off the field and 2) Give their defense a breather. They have the personnel to keep the Packer offense in check I think, but with the defense aging anytime they can get to catch their breathe will help a ton. Green Bay looked anemic in their run game, with new face Cedric Benson only racking up 31 yards on 19 attempts. The Pack is without a doubt going to have to get better running the ball, because this division is chock full of defenses that will eat you alive if you become one dimensional; Suh and Avril in Detroit, Allen and Robison in Minnesota, Peppers and a possibly emerging Corey Wootton in Chicago, and off course Clay Matthews and company in Green Bay-- need more evidence?

    Another bullet point for this one; which QB is going to get settled in? Sure Rodgers had a nice game yardage and touchdown wise, but he still tossed a couple interceptions. Jay Cutler was full on disappointing in his season debut going for only 192 yards and tossing a pair of interceptions as well. This is just all the more reason for both offenses to find (GB) or keep (Chicaigago) their running game. Forte was a monster in the opener with his 140+ yards and two touchdowns. If Cutler can settle down and at least keep control of the ball- which I think he does here- I think Chicago wins this one.

    Prediction time:

    Chicago 27 -- Green Bay 17

    Good luck to both Masler and Dru50

    Both my DE's dominated- it's just Allen always did that goddamn bull rush move so that 1) kept him from getting a sack and 2) forced you towards Robison or another pass rusher. Robison was just dominating with his swim move.

    He also has a 99 rating in cheap shots on prone offensive linemen as well.

    You'll be crying too after you have to deal with that. Its rough. I was keeping my RB and TE in to block on almost every play and he still dominated me.
