What happened in the second half?

We should have known something was up when the weather report in Green Bay, WI on October 7th called for 87 degrees!!! The Packers fans and Bears fans were out en masse as early as 9a yesterday and they were fired up!

Green Bay Packers tickets were going for $200 each out on the street just hours before kick off. The writing was on the wall. This was a must-win game for the Chicago Bears and a would-be unheard of 9th win in a row for the Packers. It wasn't meant to be, although the first half of last night's nationally televised game wouldn't have you thinking that. The Packers accumulated 341 yards in offense in the first half alone. Then came the second half. Oh boy! Field position was tough. The Bears' punt returner capabilities didn't help things. And did I mention the turnovers? You have heard it before, be on the losing end of the turnovers and you will lose the game. The much-hyped Chicago Bears' defense got on the bus for the trip up from the Windy City, focing 5 turnovers! The Packers Bears score could EASILY have been 21-0 in the first half. Errrrr...

Thankfully the Detroit Lions lost on Sunday or should I say, got spanked.

Who really goes 5-0 anyway?

Six more days until kickoff at Lambeau Field against the Washington Redskins. Go Pack Go!

How about 2 Illinois teams beating 2 undefeated Wisconsin football teams in the same weekend. I hope I don't walk into oncoming traffic.
