    "The Bears have heard that Coach Curtis from the Arizona Cardinals have guaranteed a Superbowl on this last season, but the Bears believe they will choke on these playoffs as they have all seasons, specially if they have the Bears coming to town."


    Coach Troy had this quote posted on the bulletin board all week leading up to this playoff matchup against division rivals. The Bears have had the Packers number the last 5 games so it was easy to see why they may be looking ahead to the Cardinals. One thing Green Bay learned about Chicago this season is they like to take advantage of short crossing patterns with their speedy, low rated release core of wide receivers. Green Bay would have to utilize their high press corner back group, if they wanted to limit those crossing patterns and give time to Clay Matthews to wreak havoc in the back field. Mission accomplished as Clay did his thing and Jay Cutler once again became Jay Cutler.

    Game started out with Chicago moving the ball methodically down the field. Bears would need 8 yards for a first down, they would get 8.5. Finally, Green Bay would tighten up and force the Bears into a field goal. The Packers would strike early on their first possession as Rodgers would find a wide open Steven Amber over the middle for 82 yards and give Green Bay the early lead, 7-3. Chicago would respond on their next series. Devin Hester the recipient of a Cutler pass to put Chicago back on top, 7-10. Green Bay would answer right back and former Bear Evan Rodriguez would catch a Rodgers pass over the middle to put Green Bay back on top for good, 14-10. Chicago would get a late second quarter field goal to send the game into half with the score 14-13.

    The second half was all Green Bay. A Steven Amber touchdown pass and a Jason Brewer touchdown run in the third, stretched the Packer lead to 15. Chicago would start to employ a sporadic no huddle offense in the third quarter, but Green Bay has seen this before from them and didn't faulter. Their familiarity with the Bears really helped in this one, as they saw the formations and knew what routes were going to be run and could anticipate where the ball was going before the play was even snapped.

    In the fourth, Chicago would get a touchdown to move within one score of the Pack. However, Green Bay would respond with a Crosby field goal to push it back to a 2 score game.

    Chicago would get the ball back and would move the ball down the field with over 2 minutes to go in the game. With the ball in Green Bay territory on the left hash, Chicago called a play with 4 wr's. Green Bay knew what was coming. Either a 10 yard out or post to the sidelines. Green Bay would counter with a cover 4 zone with the corners shading to the sideline. Chicago snapped the ball, dropped back to pass and Cutler zipped the ball to the right sidelines into the waiting arms of Packer S MD Jennings. Game over.
