I am so excited for this Sunday's game! Of course I would make this the game of the week!
Packers versus Bears! Sunday 4:25pm EST. Win and your in! It's the best way to end the season. This is exactly what the NFL was hoping for when they scheduled all division games at the end of the season.
The rivalry began in 1921. It is the most played in all of the league with 187 regular and post season games between them (the longest rivalry is Pack/Lions). When Lovie Smith first got the head coaching gig at the Bears, he stated his first goal was to beat the Packers.
That's exciting football if you ask me.
I know my team isn't the best right now. However, I adore my team. There doesn't seem to be an asshole in the bunch. Eddie Lacy, Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb, B.J. Raji -- I love them all.
I hate the Bears.
Really? Jay Cutler? Honestly, I would hate it if he was my quarterback. He is such a douchepod. How can you a cheer a team on with him as your leader?
The Bears didn't have a Happy Holidays video for their fans. Hmm. Doesn't surprise me.
All their website had was a trailer for the upcoming game. I'm only sharing it here because I get to see Aaron Rodgers in the clip, and we all know we haven't seen much of him lately.
Ok, enough of my diatribe about why I hate the Bears -- but, truly ... a Packer's fan hating the Bears is kind of what makes the rivalry great.
The other win and your in game is the Cowboys versus Eagles. However, this game is not nearly as exciting with Romo on the bench due to a herniated disc.
