The Only Game Left This Year

| December 9th, 2009

The Green Bay Packers are going to the postseason.  They’re going to have a chance to win the Super Bowl because that’s what going to the postseason means.  Aaron Rodgers – the guy who just a summer ago was under the most pressure in the sport – has risen to the top shelf of NFL quarterbacks.  Their defense – the damn Packers defense – is the top ranked in the sport.  Don’t look now but the 2009 Green Bay Packers are everything we hoped the 2009 Chicago Bears would be.

So I’m thinking maybe the Bears should forget about the first twelve weeks of the season.  They’re lost love.  Wishes made to an empty fountain.  Forget about failures on the offensive line, interceptions in the red zone, holes in the Lovie deuce and injuries everywhere.  For one day, Sunday, deliver fans of this organization an effort.  Because I left out one piece of information…

The Packers don’t have to go to the postseason.  The Bears can have their say in the discussion.  Win this one.  Have pride in yourselves and in the colors you wear and beat those bastards back to Cheese Town.  Send them with a message: WE WON’T BE PART OF YOUR ROAD.  Soldier Field should not be part of the Packers’ path to the postseason.  It should be a big tollbooth and the cost to pass through is your season.  Make them pay, Chicago Bears.  Give us all one beautiful memory from 2009.
