Here is the belated Sunday column from our beloved JB:
I read all week about how this game didn't really matter. Then there were the draft board enthusiasts that want us to drop the last two to creep up the board in a disappointing season.
I, among others, think this game mattered. It matters to the fans that if nothing else, enjoy watching our defense return to form with a shell of its opening day roster. It matters to those of us with packer backing friends. It matters to those of us that need some confidence in our team going into a very important offseason. It matters that Adrian Peterson ran the ball hard and effectively with an offensive line that looked like it was composed of actual professional athletes. It matters that we can win next week and avoid a double digit loss season.
I don't know if Kyle Orton is the answer to the future, how to pronounce #75's name, why Peanut Tillman isn't in the Pro Bowl, and if that GB punter will be able to sleep tonight without recurring nightmares. What I do know is that I have a smile on my face for the 6th time this year and that I still love this team.
We may not have a post season, but we beat the cheese twice this year, and that's just enough to hang my hat on. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. It's been a great experience this season, writing 5 game wrap ups, and I look forward to talking through the off season decisions with all of you in the coming months. May '08 be the year for Chicago.

Just a repost
My thoughts on the game:
I dont know whether to be happy for the win yesterday or just more pissed. I am happy they swept the season series from GB and that now despite the playoffs in the shitter and all the other negative stuff, we can shut Pack fans up all offseason.
But seeing how they played yesterday I am just so pissed that we couldnt get into the playoffs this year. What the fuck was the deal? This is just stupid. We can beat the Pack like that twice but cant even split the season series with the shitty Lions or Vikes? WTF? We cant hold a lead against the Giants? Its pathetic. This horrible NFC and we cant get in.
BTW Horton still sucks, he gets a bit of a pass with the weather etc, and didnt make any key mistakes so the caretaker label is still in play for him. Yeah Im scrooge.

Being a pissed off Packers fan who had to endure the Bears fans yesterday- I can't help but to agree with JB. Although - we are going to the post-season and the Bears are not means nothing in my eyes. These two games MATTER - I wouldn't be so pissed off if it didn't ! ! The Bears, who seem to be the only ones who realize that, come to play when it comes to the Packers, and as of late, that's not a two way street.
It was a great game by the Bears who looked like a post season force. The Packers as of late have forgotten who the real NFC North rivals are (which is not the Vikings), I hope the sweep is a not so friendly reminder.
In Any Case - MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM MILWAUKEE

Here at DaBearsBlog, you are free to kill us or the Bears as you so wish. You are not free, however, to be an asshole. So if you spew racism or ill-meaning foul language (cursing about football is just fine) or anything of that ilk, your comments ain't gonna last long, jerk.
