There is just something special about the Bears and the Pack meeting up in December when the wind and the weather could get nasty.  It adds to that special feeling when for a change the Bears are leading the NFC North, fighting for playoff home field and the Packers are all but out of the playoffs.

On Offense:

Score.  Please!  I love winning by defense, but how about 2 offensive touchdowns.  Is that really too much to ask for?  I am not expecting you to put up Colt numbers, but put up some numbers.  The Packers run defense is nothing to write home about, so the Bears O-line should be able to leave holes for Jones and Peterson as well as protect Orton.  There is not reason Orton can't have a decent game, especially if the Bears receivers hold onto the ball(when did our WR turn into the Seahawks?).

On Defense:

This is one of those games where there is potential that the Pack are happy to get a first down, but Favre usually has an early Christmas gift for the Bears, so we have to keep on our toes.  Our line has been almost unstoppable the last few games and there is not reason that doesn't continue, so Favre will be forced to throw a lot and when he throws a lot interceptions happen.  Vashar could be looking at another big game.

On Special Teams:
Simple.  Keep Bobby Wade off the field.  I would rather have John Tait fair catch every ball as long as he could hold onto it.
