No they didn't, it was pitiful. The Packers just managed to out-pitiful them in the last half of the 4th quarter after marching all over them for the first 3.5 quarters. But as they say, it's the win that counts, not how you win.

I say both teams played half-assed. They both had good spots and they both had crap spots. Both teams have been pretty even this year. It just happens the Bears record is better. I wont lie. But I still knew the Bears would finish better than the Pack this year and I was indeed correct.

I think the difference in the game tonight was the Bears Defense and Special Teams. Also the Bears actually put Forte up there to win the game in the fourth quarter.

Pitiful game. The fudgePackers played with more heart in the 1st half than the Bears did. Orton needs to watch those useless interceptions, those were pitiful. At least Gould and special teams came through for us again. An overall decent defensive performance, too.

Horrible game. The bears should have lost. The bears can't play football.

And yet they're right in the thick of the playoff hunt.

The bears made the plays when they needed them the most, and to me that is playing a good game.

If this team makes the playoffs, this will have been the least satisfying playoff team in the organization's history - or at least in my lifetime. When was the last time they won when you actually felt good about the team? Probably the blowout against the Lions, but that was the Lions.

Other than that, they plod along. No passrush, poor pass defense, no NFL Wide Recievers, poor QB, passive head coach. Maybe they'll get a win, maybe they won't.

Lovie had no reason to get pissed at his team sleepwalking through the first half. When the Bears had a 4th and 4 from the Packers 34 yard line, Lovie punts it. Go figure, the packers face a 4th and 2 from about the same position a few plays later, and fake a punt to get the first town. Kinda makes you wonder which team needed this game.
