All I can say is... IT’S OOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!
This is a HUGE GAME (I’m pretty sure everyone already knows that). The Bears and Packers have the biggest rivalry in NFL football, so history will definitely be made this Sunday at Soldier Field when we square off for the opportunity to become NFL Champions. We beat’em in ‘41 and we have every intention to beat’em again, 70 years later.
One of the biggest keys to this game is getting Aaron Rodgers off his mark. In order to do this and keep them away from their play action game, we’ll have to shut down their running game. If we can limit them there, the d-line can pin their ears back and go get Rodgers, so he won’t ever be able to sit back there all day trying to throw the ball. The man is dangerous when he escapes the pocket, so the more pressure we can put on him, the better off we’re going to be.
If we want to win this thing, special teams is also going to have to be on point -- And when I say "be on point," I mean they need to DOMINATE. Also, our offense needs to continue showing up, just like they’ve been doing for the past few weeks (well, actually, they’ve been showing up the entire second half of the season). If Chicago Bear points are being flung all around Soldier Field, we’ll obviously UP our chances to go 2-0 in this rare postseason rivalry we have going with Green Bay.
Okay, 4th Phase... The time has come for us to pull this thing out and become NFC Champs! Tomorrow’s game at Soldier Field is gonna go down in a BIG WAY, so let’s GET IT!!!
