Bears knocked out of playoff hunt at hands of Packers, lose 21-35

When the schedule was first released, the Bears-Packers game looked very intriguing... But when the game actually started, Chicago lined up their 3rd QB of the season, along with their #3 RB, thanks to injuries to Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, and Marion Barber, and to the benching of Caleb Hanie, a guy that Mike Martz never liked to begin with.

The Packers have not seen a lot of success on defense this season, but when facing an injury-depleted Bears offense, they didn't really have much to worry about. On one hand, Josh McCown and Kahlil Bell looked good tonight; on the other, Aaron Rogers looked much better. Some quick stats after the jump.

Josh McCown: 19/28, 242 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT, 76.8 Rating

Kahlil Bell: 23 rushes, 121 yds

Roy Williams: 6 rec, 81 yds

Aaron Rodgers: 21/29, 283 yds, 5 TD, 0 INT, 142.7 Rating

Ryan Grant: 8 rushes, 44 yds

Jordy Nelson: 6 rec, 115 yds, 2 TD

Bears penalties: 6-28

Packers penalties: 0-0

------------------------

As our 2011 playoff hopes are ended, we now get to look to the proverbial next season. A few questions that come to mind:

- Will Jerry Angelo come back to try and make one more run?

- WIll Mike Martz end up leaving town?

- What about Mike Tice, Rod Marinelli, and Dave Toub?

- What will be the biggest priority in next year's Draft?

We will have more analysis in the next few days, but feel free to drop your thoughts into the comments section below...
