Bears Packers Time
January 23, 2011 by staff
Bears Packers Time, (CP) – The NFL Final Four has a strong link with the big game; the first champion (Packers) to the winner of the game may be the most significant (Jets). And maybe the best team in the Super Bowl (1985 Bears) to the franchise’s most dominant at the time (Steelers).
Any match in Dallas next month will include a lot of history. So much so that Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said to want to put up a picture of the Packers on the wall next to the other championship teams – including the winners of the first two Super Bowls (1966 and 67 seasons) and the 1996 team.
“We never lost sight because he is always behind me every day when I talk to the team,” said McCarthy’s Packers, who face 90 years, rival Chicago at Soldier Field on Sunday for the NFC title. “I stressed that we are again … half way. We talked about 16 / 4 as a football team. We have completed eight of them. And we need to capture these four Chicago, and it puts us closer to the picture on the wall.
“It’s a goal that is still before us and it was a goal when we started and it is still a goal today.”
The Packers (12-6) face the Bears (12-5) for the 182nd timed with a place in the Super Bowl on the line adds another chapter of history, the longest string in pro football. If the Bears win, they earn their third trip to the big game, one fewer than Green Bay, which is 3-1 in Super Bowls. Chicago is 1-1, having lost the 2006 Colts.
Nobody is comparing these bears to the ’85 version that mixed his way through almost everyone and then bludgeoned the Patriots 46-10 for the crown. This team is considered by many as the best of all 44 winners of the Super Bowl.
If Chicago even approaches the level that Sunday, he will probably be packing for Big D.
“I think everybody in the locker room knows the magnitude of this game, knows what we’re going against,” quarterback Jay Cutler said, “but at the same time, we’ll enjoy it, we’ll be loose We’ll play our game and we can not worry about what will happen next, if we win, we lose, we just go there and play.
“It’s a huge game for Chicago and Green Bay. Just how many times we’ve played each other, the degree of familiarity of both cities and both teams are to each other, it’s almost like a little mini-Super Bowl. But I know Chicago will be very disappointed if we do not win this game. ”
The Steelers have only a 7-7 record in AFC title games. But they are 6-1 in Super Bowls, one more than the championships in San Francisco and Dallas own. The curtain of steel carried them to four crowns in the 1970 NFL and the Steelers in 2005 and 2008, he won all.
This is a tremendous recovery from Pittsburgh (13-4) is in the conference championship game in New York (13-5).
“There is a story you want to live here at a high level of success,” said linebacker James Farrior.
The highest level, a place that the Jets have reached only once. Of course, their victory over the Colts in 1969 confirmed the AFL’s Joe Namath made a superstar, and almost made the Super Bowl as something good, great.
New York was the closure of four times since then: his teams 1982, 1998 and 2009 lost in the final of the AFC championship. Now another chance.
“It’s great. We expected to be here, “talkative, ultraconfident coach Rex Ryan said. “I do not know if we expected to travel the road that we did. It was quite difficult, but we’re only men for the job. We have a strong men’s locker room and we knew what the objective was to us. Never lost sight of the goal. We have always focused on the goal, and it is here. ”
Like the Packers, the Jets are a No. 6 seed. Contrary to Green Bay, which is favored in the NFC title game, the Jets are losers.
“The great thing is, there was a ton of skepticism, you will know along the way we are going to be skeptical,” said Ryan. “I always come back to this quote Ray Robinson when everyone doubts you, you must believe in yourself. That’s what this team a. that’s what this team does. We have always believed in ourselves. We always believed we would get to this point and beyond. We’ll find out Sunday. ”
