Don’t let the title fool ya, the entire Green Bay Packers team played an awesome game against the Chicago Bears today. However, had it not been for the pick by B.J. Raji things would definitely be different.
What started out as a game like that of the Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons just one week ago, soon turned into a game that rested on the Packers defense — at least that’s the way I saw the game? I’m sure I’m not the only one who saw it that way either. The truth is that had it not been for the Packers defense the season would be over.
Aaron Rodgers was very effective in the first half, but once he took the hit to the helmet — a hit that cost the Bears a penalty — Rodgers’ game slowly deteriorated in aggressiveness and pass completions. One after another, Rodgers passes were either short or in the turf. I’m not criticizing Aaron Rodgers, but after the game he even admitted that he didn’t play to his best capabilities. But does it really matter? Probably not. Rodgers’ football season has been phenomenal and ultimately resulted in the Green Bay Packers advancing to Dallas for Super Bowl XLV. Those are the facts, and and only time will tell how his game will play out in the Super Bowl.
Win or loose, I faithfully supported the Green Bay Packers. My bet is the Green Bay Packers over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl!
