Packers Bears Game Time
January 23, 2011 by staff
Packers Bears Game Time, The most curious aspect of the Bears’ 10-3 loss to the Packers in Week 17 was the suddenly unbalanced offense – 18 rushing attempts to 47 drop-backs. With Chester Taylor in a slump of post-bye (11-44 vs. Seattle last week) and Matt Forte works well, the Bears’ best bet is to establish the run early and let Jay Cutler take what the Packers give him. If the Bears can not run against the Packers rush defense ranked 18th, they have no right to be in this game Forte (25-80 vs. Seattle) has averaged 5.2 yards per scope of its last 7 games (112 to 582, two TDs). Cutler ran for 43 yards, 2 TD vs. Seattle last week, but cannot take too many chances against the Packers defense uncompromising.
Webb, a rookie drafted in the seventh round in April, has made steady progress since becoming the starter in Week 5, but it could soon be in the middle of a hurricane in it. The Bears in Week 3 have contained Matthews, but had a sack, a TFL and a QB hit in Week 17. He has 3 sacks in the playoffs.
Jay Cutler has been outstanding in his series debut last week, but now he goes to the big leagues face a defense that thrives on forcing SBC as Cutler to do things they know they should not. The key number is 25 – the average number of passages Cutler has thrown in 5 more than 100 games scoring pass he had in the Bears last 7 games. In four games against the Packers last 2 seasons, Cutler has thrown 4 TDs and 9 interceptions for a rating of 57.9 overall. Johnny Knox will be a key indicator at the beginning. He was cleared from the Pack in Week 17. Back to Earl Bennett cannot hurt – Packers are sensitive to physical WRs who are making tough catch. TE scored 7 TD vs. Pack this year.
The Bears closed the Packers’ ground attack in two regular season games – QB Aaron Rodgers was their best running back leading into week 17 with 21 yards. But the Packers to a size do not seem to slow them down too. Rodgers still gets defenses to bite on play action and finds ways to avoid heavier pass rushes. James Stark, who had 20 yards on 5 carries vs. the Bears in Week 17, rushed for 123 yards on 23 carries against the Eagles in the game wild card, but was held to 66 yards on 25 carries against the Falcons. Rodgers, who rushed for 356 yards (5.6 per carry) with 4 TDs this season, perhaps the most dangerous runner Packers.
The Bears inability to win special teams made the difference at Lambeau. Tim Masthay put 4 plates inside the 20, pinning the Bears at there 2 and 3 in the fourth quarter. The Bears have started 10 of their 13 players in there 30. Brad Maynard had 3 flat within the last 20 weeks. Devin Hester had a kick return of 62 yards for a TD vs. Packers in Week 3, but 19 was his long in week 17. Packers did not punt last week against the Falcons.
After outcoached by defensive coordinator Dom Capers Packers when the Bears lost to the Packers on Jan. 2 at Lambeau Field, the answer Martz NFC Championship at stake today at Soldier Field will be one of the bears’ biggest key of victory.
Every football game is finally a game players, but because they are the only ones on the ground. Coaches make the difference. There is a reason why the Bears lost badly to the Seahawks at Soldier Field in October and beat them even more decisively last week in the same place. Lawyer Milloy or why was sacked Jay Cutler twice in October and continuing Greg Olsen in the end zone in January. This is not seulement”l’exécution.”
Thus, while Jay Cutler to thwart Charles Woodson today, Julius Peppers has to beat Chad Clifton or Bryan Bulag or both, and Urlacher is to defeat Aaron Rodgers is the key game vs. Martz Capers – two coordinators made to repair damaging leaks if Lovie Smith and Mike McCarthy does not mind hiring someone who has done their job better than them. Neither bears nor the Packers would be here without them.
But Martz has the advantage because he has the most room for improvement. Cutler was sacked six times in week 17 – more than he had been sacked over the previous three weeks combined. Johnny Knox cannot get less than zero crossings he grabbed at Lambeau. And the bear appears to be better to make the Packers pay to put pressure on Cutler.
Unless the Packers have already provided the answer, capers and adapts to adjustments Martz. In this case, Martz will have to adapt to adjustments Capers. This is a classic game of chess.
”We all do,”Capers said. We study”. We know what we’ve done the last four, five, six games. They certainly know what we did.
”You always anticipate what they want to tape. And then there are certain elements of your system you just do. Only for you. So that’s what small adjustments you make out of it.”
On the other hand, fears that Martz does not think beyond that seem like it may be challenging for a guy like him.
”It happened to me once before,”he said. ”It must be very careful of it. You make assumptions and give them more credit about knowing more about you than you perhaps. You can leave why you’re there first, and you start doing stuff you do not really need to do. ”
Capers and Martz have been around for a long time, but have faced each other as head coaches or coordinators only four times – in 2005 when the Rams (Martz) beat the Texans (capers) 33-27; in 2006 when the Dolphins (capers) beat the Lions (Martz) 27 to 10, and two Packers-Bears games this season.
The Steelers should send a Hallmark card of thanks for the Jets beat New England, but will wait until the end of the season. Mike Tomlin’s team is not in the mood to give that day and will harass Jets QB Mark Sanchez turnovers. Ben Roethlisberger advantage of short fields and put up enough points to punch a ticket from the Super Bowl.
Whereas Rex Ryan & Co. already won in Pittsburgh and is coming off consecutive victories over perennial heavyweights Indianapolis and New England, just say thank you and pocket the points here. QB Mark Sanchez factor X that, despite its faults, has achieved well results in a crucial moment.
1. Rodgers Rattle. Packer’s quarterback has six touchdowns and zero interceptions, but he can not throw if he is on his back. DE Julius Peppers and the D line will do better than two sacks in eight quarters.
2. Plated on the spot. Frank Omiyale and J’Marcus Webb will be responsible for ensuring that blitzing the Packers D has eight sacks to get Cutler series of his comfort zone.
3. Not a man of games. The Bears cannot expect Cutler to himself. Playmakers Matt Forte, Chester Taylor and Devin Hester kick return special need for their help have no chance of victory.
