Jordan Love is the Ice Man. I was so damn nervous I wouldn't be able to tie my own shoes much less throw darts like that one to Reed on the final drive.

Love was in command no question the stable of young receivers is very impressive, o line held up great and to give the devil his due Joe Barry had them play aggressive man to man. Special Teams still scare me, kicker just no that good and coverage team on kick offs gave them an average start at 34 yard line needs to be cleaned up. Couple of mental mistakes but they overcame those. Big Win

JJ, It's hard to be a downer with us making the PLAYOFFS!! But our kicker scares me too. I know he is a rookie, but not only is he not accurate on FGs and extra points, but he does not have a strong leg. His kickoffs are pathetically short all the time. That is doubly important this year because our kickoff coverage is sub standard. GB needs to bring in competition in the off season to see if we can find someone better. But not wasting a draft choice on one. Harold Mevis-Missouri kicker would be a good UFDA, mid 80s percentage on FGs, long of 63 yards, and has most of his kickoffs in the end zone. No missed extra points either. No missed tackles and no one gets hurt.

Anyway CONGRATULATIONS PACKERS- LETS KICK SOME COWBOY ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm the one that told him about Bo Melton, he was hot on Grant DuBose. I also told him Mt Caleb looked dominant, and after he went to a practice he confirmed that, adamantly. We have 3 OTs who have never played a snap, how's Gutey supposed to draft intelligently like that? 6'7" 6'8" and 6'9". I think we need 3 guys on the interior.

"Proof positive that MM was never going to use a RB, probably a lot of that had to do with having a QB like Rodgers"

Close, but still no cigar.

Rodgers had total control at the LOS.
Rodgers checked out of runs regularly- and too frequently.
MM used to let Rodgers know about it on the sidelines, too.

Post game, when the questions about Run/Pass ratios etc would come up, McCarthy would always say, every week, "Frankly, the key to being a successful ground game starts with the number of attempts. We need to be better." Rodgers post game, every week, "I feel we need to get the RBs more involved in the gameplan." or, "We need to get the RBs more touches." Rodgers very deliberately never used the phrases "Run the ball more", or that we need to "get the RBs more carries."

The proof positive is that the Packers were never going to use a RB while Rodgers was under center, and that probably a lot of that had to do with handing a QB like Rodgers total control at the LOS"

Before the masterful last drive in the clutch by the Packers offense, the Bears had held the ball longer in time of possession (if I'm not mistaken).
To watch the game -- rather than just going by the stat sheet -- was to see that the Packers offense had to be great to overcome the Packers defense being iffy.
It's important to note that it seems the Packers defenders played very well, but they were undermined by Barry not blitzing enough in his overly cautious and highly infuriating way.
If the offense didn't come through, there's a good chance the defense loses this game due to Barry being exasperatingly soft (as in the Giants game, and almost against the Panthers).
Don't be fooled. Barry is holding back a super-talented defense.
Fire Barry before the playoffs!

We need a defensive coordinator with more pluck, because we can't count on luck to save us from too many gut-wrenching heartbreaks.
***
I don't remember the defense giving up all that many points to the Giants, either.
Against the Panthers, the defense was decent statistically until the last eight minutes or so.
Today, if the Packers don't put together a clutch drive for the last 6-plus minutes, it's the same shaky scenario with Barry bumbling along to endanger our heart health and mental sanity.
Please, let's not be fooled; end the madness!!!

For sure, there's absolutely no reason to give JB another contract. His expires at the end of this season, and there are 20 people available, each of whom would be better. But in these last two games, whoever was involved on the coaching staff, our defense both had an effective scheme, and played well.

JB cannot be trusted not to mess that up.

I want Barry fired. How much? Even if the Packers were to win the Super Bowl this year, and if the defense held the opponents to less than ten points a game, I'd want him gone. Why? Because when given the choice, Barry always returns to that maddening "stop the big play" pass defense that lets the opponent keep on picking up first downs, moving the chains and keeping the defense on the field way too long. What is maddening is that when it seems his job is on the line- like it was toward the end of last year- he suddenly was able to create defensive schemes that helped win games. Which is why the strong finish for the defense last year saved his job. And what did he do? Immediately went back to the same schemes that don't work. Three weeks in a row, Barry's ineptness made second rate QB's look like the second coming of Dan Marino. Then, just as suddenly, he turns things around and the defense actually looks good. He is that proverbial tiger that can't change its stripes. Bring in someone else once the season is over. And so a shakeup of the entire staff, starting with Stenavich once again taking over the OL, and taking a hard look at Bisaccia to see if he is the answer for ST's, or if he just doesn't like being in GB, except for the green of the money he makes.

Even worse, JB promised the defensive players they'd be allowed to play aggressively. It's what Gutey drafted them for, and they were psyched. Then - PSYCH! Nope, gotta play prevent defense as though they had a three score lead with 5 minutes remaining in the game.

JB LIED.

It almost cost the locker room. Rasul, Campbell, Ja, who else? Fortunately, winning helps EVERYTHING.

I'm surprised so many Packers fans have been fooled by not seeing how bad Barry was in this game.
The defensive players had to overcome the defensive coordinator, yet the Bears still just about equaled the Packers in time of possession (with the last drive by our offense pushing us over the top in terms of minutes with the ball).
To paraphrase Mark Twain, there are lies, damn lies, and -- worst of all -- statistics.
If we don't see that, then Barry is going to rip out our hearts once again.
Without a masterful last drive by the Packers offense of over six minutes to finish the game, we would have seen another gut-wrenching and possibly heartbreaking display of ineptitude by Barry.
[P.S. Don't forget that near interception by Valentine at the goal line could just as easily have been a touchdown for the Bears.]

You are overly concerned with time of possession. Points are all that count. Giving up only 9 points, especially given the one turnover near mid-field, will win you over 90% of games (I just made that up but it's probably true). You win the award for worst take on this game with all these negative comments.

I'll take that award, because the Packers were backed up on their own 2-yard-line late in the game; and if forced to punt, our defense would have been required to overcome Barry's lack of blitzes to hold on in a one-score game.
After what happened with the Giants and Panthers, I'm surprised more fans don't see how close the Packers came to blowing another game due to obtuse overcautiousness by Barry.
***
By the way, our players on defense seemed good today, if not very good, if not excellent, but they did this mostly despite Barry, not because of him.
***
Time of possession by the other team limits our offense from scoring more points, right?
We only won by 8.

It doesn't seem like a waste of time to explain why Barry was such a masterful coach in this game, if that was indeed the case.
After Barry turned DeVito and Mayfield and Stroud into superstars-for-a-week, it would be fascinating to know how he suddenly adjusted to becoming a defensive mastermind against Justin Fields.
It's truly sad when fans resort to nastiness instead of knowledge.
If fans have the time to ridicule and scorn, why can't they make the time to say something insightful and persuasive?
The supposed stunning transformation of Barry cries out for an explanation, and yet what I'm reading in this thread is mostly dry statistics and stupid insults.

Packers defense held the Lions to 9 points, and frankly, it probably would have been limited to only 3 points if not for a very questionable 4th down conversion QB tush push and an even more suspect 3rd down conversion "Catch" by a bears WR that was reviewed, showed the ball clearly bouncing off the turf, but inexplicably not overturned.

Replace Barry, but tonight was not a bad performance.

JL is playing MUCH better now. He wasn't able to throw the ball away to avoid a sack before Pittsburgh. He also gets the ball out MUCH faster. Not only is he throwing to the open man, he's making great choices to gain field position. And he's hitting targets in stride much better.

The big unknown is what's his ceiling?!? I can rattle off a few refinements I'd still like to see, but his rate of progress is downright scary 😎

He's really just more consistent now.

First half of the season, he couldn't put it together in the first half of games.. but his 2nd half performances weren't much different that what he has been doing all game long during the latter part of the season.

There was a 3 game streak where he wasn't trusting his OL, and for some good reason- the OL was in a terrible funk early in the year. The true difference in Love's play from pre-steelers to post-steelers game is consistency and OL play.

Sure could've used O line play like this early in the season! JL's consistency come down to footwork. In TC he threw with all his cleats in the ground. Behind a leaky O line he developed some bad habits; hopefully he fixes that in the off-season.

I took a lot of flack for my criticisms of Rodgers over the years but it was never personal for me. My disgust was strictly about football and you hit the nail on the head as to why. Weve seen all year how effectively Lafleur can get open looks for the qb using his potent blend of presnap motions, playactions, misdirections, and overall creative playcalling. Before he was even our HC, i used to say to myself "if Rodgers ever played in a McVay/Shanahan style offense he would never lose a game." Then Lafleur is hired and I was ecstatic cuz I was finally getting my wish. 5 minutes later, Rodgers is on Kenny Mayne's show crapping on the new offense. If only he had trusted Lafleur and fully bought in, they wouldve won the super bowl in 2020 and probly 2021 too. Nobody's convincing me otherwise. Im just glad we have a guy who is bought in fully and now he, and this team, are thriving. Just win baby.

JL has only one favorite target, just like Rodgers before him.

The difference is while Rodgers' favorite target was Davante Adams no matter how many DB's were covering him, Jordan Love's favorite target is whoever is open, no matter who the receiver is.

I'd be surprised if any of those top 3 WRs are at 100% Sunday. This is what depth is for! Melton, Heath and DuBose may have to carry the G. Musgrave is basically a WR. Kraft and #33 are receivers, as checkdowns. That personnel is VERY potent! If our linemen play like this? Plus pass rush? Don't count GB out!

"Remember- these were the Bears."
The 2023 Bears defense was no joke like their offense was. #1 against the run through 16 games, and Jones put up 111 yards. Middle of the road against the pass, and Love put up 316 yards and a 128.6 passer rating (and it would have been off the charts if Doubs and Melton come down with TD catches). Give this team some credit, offense and defense balled out today.

SH, every time Love has a great game you still have to put in some silly caveat about the next game will be the REAL test. Jesus, you still won't back away from your (I'm paraphrasing) "Love just doesn't have IT and never will. He's a bust." or something close to that. Get a grip. Your quasi-"apology" when Al called the Love haters out was downright comical.

No. Those are all very valid critiques. All of MLF's weaknesses are within the HC job description. All of his strengths are as OC. Demote him and Stenavitch, bring in a good HC, and this same roster improves. Replace JB and it gets better yet. The strength and conditioning staff needs to be replaced regardless.

I also remember the Lions were the Lions and the Chiefs were the Chiefs.

We know the Packers have the talent to compete against the Cowboys, but that youth will be tested. The question is do they have the consistency and understand what it will take to play up to their own talent level when the bright lights are on them.

I have hopes they might rise to the occasion. They certainly may stumble, but as they are the youngest team to make the post season since 1974, that gives me some hope they have the grit to pull it off.

It's all playing with house money at this point for this team. If they win, they could shock the league. If they lose, the gain valuable experience to take into next season that is rare for a team this young to access.

If winning next week was a goal, playing Detroit without LaPorta and short at least one star on the other side of the ball would have been a better chance. Every loss this season was a winnable game. We expected our offense to play inconsistently, but which of those losses was not on JB?

Btw GB had a +14 point differential on the season.

Playing like they did in KC would help. (I mean player effort, not coach's game plan)

“…and, the Bears are powerless to stop the clock.” – Wayne Larrivee

We ran the ball, We stopped the run, We contained Fields, We bottled up DJ Moore. We riddled their pass D like other teams have done to us this season. We sacked the QB.

Sean Rhyan was moving large bodies off the ball.

Jordan Love was in command and accurate. Stellar performance.

Special Teams? Still gaining experience.

This team accomplished what last year’s team could not, and that is a big deal.

How this was only a 17-9 game, I'll never know.

Packers moved the ball up and down the field against a Bears defense that has been playing very well. Never punted on the day...only real blemishes were the fumble and the missed FG...and I suppose their inability to get points at the end of the first half.

Packers playing with house money. They stopped Jefferson...they contained DJ Moore--do they have an answer for CeeDee Lamb? Dallas is a notorious playoff choker. Roll the dice, and see where you end up.

dobber, it seems LaFleur in tandem with Love was masterful today, which overcame the biggest mistake of the day by the offense, due to LaFleur's mis-coaching, of not getting a field goal attempt at the end of first half.
I'll emphasize that LaFleur deserves tons of credit.
Barry deserves to be fired for playing it soft and cautious. Fortunately, his players on defense were on their game, and did enough to overcome his ongoing ineptitude, which is baffling for its denseness and/or stubbornness.

I think Love owns some bad decision making at end of half- that was supposed to be as quick end zone shot pro football teams run. I realize GB probably needs all the yds they can get with that adventure who is Anders Carlson, but that decision and the sack prior to the miss is mostly likely a Love decision…. It was a high risk play with no TO- probably bad idea to even try another play (yet I am sure not having a dependable kicker factored into it)…. I wrote way too much and and nit-picking for sure

What if Love is a Frankenstein of the best if Farve and Rodgers? With most productive rookie WR group in history? Seems the future is a lot brighter today that it was last year at this time.

Awesome win...I'm so happy for Jordan Love and this group of kids. You can tell they LOVE playing with one another and GOT each others back...How refreshing.

I have a feeling Aaron Jones will still renegotiate to lower his cap number next year. Whatever it ends up being, Gutey NEEDS to keep that man in Green Bay.

Wicks is turning into a Goddamn STUD. He can catch anything, runs GREAT routes already, and blocks his ass off.

I REALLY like Bo Melton. Can we please make sure Heath and Toure are BEHIND him on the depth chart.

Congrats to this Defense for playing a really good game! I thought Walker did a pretty damn good job spying on Fields.

It's on to Dallas.

i was ready to kill MLF at the end of the half for wasting a shot at what should be a gimme field goal though not with our kicker, but damn if Love did not see the field well, and make the throws and except for his fumble played a near perfect game. And what a difference it makes to have Jones out there for pretty near every play. Had Dillon been available no doubt MLF would have found a way to keep him off the field. But unlike last year against Detroit, these guys came ready to play. and boy do we have some keepers at receiver.

Even Jordan Love's fumble was acceptable as he was going aggressively for the first down.
If Love doesn't get the first down, we have to give the ball to the Bears anyway by punting (or take a risk on fourth down).
It's a difference of field position, for sure, but I like Love fighting for the first down on that play.
I don't expect perfection from our players, only striving to be the best they can be.

Teams can overcome a reasonable number of mistakes; but it's a lot harder to overcome Barry playing it overly cautious over and over and over again throughout this season.
He is infuriatingly dense or stubborn as a defensive coordinator.

The strategy for the next season or two is to have Jones play the first two games so the Packers get off to a hot start.
Then, rest Jones until the last four games of the season to be ready for a hot finish ;-).

In any case, Jones at his best seems to be right up there with the best of them at running back, including McCaffrey.

What the hell got into Joe Barry???

Three DL, rushing five, playing man coverage, not playing seven yards off when it is third and three - I didn't recognize this defense. And where was this all season?

If Barry had shown this level of aggression most of the season, his employment might not be in so much question by fans and pundits. The talent to execute this kind of defense is there, it just takes a DC with the balls to call it.

And kudos to Jordan Love. I think the Packers have their QB for the next ten years. And props to Gute for finding him and having the intestinal fortitude to draft him when it wasn't popular.

Unlike last week, a game like this earns respect.  Sans mental and kicking game mistakes, a convincing win.

Dallas averaged a tad over 37 at home and the competition was EZ Peezy.

Similar to Favre & Rodgers careers, my worst nightmare is that Love becomes HoF while team never reaches full potential under MLF.  Consolation? Peace of mind knowing Love's rapid ascension makes a GB HC vacancy attractive to the top candidates.  Two consecutive noteworthy defensive performances--the Barry retention meter is rising (ugh).

I feel good that media pundits are saying Rams & Bills are being hailed as most dangerous underdogs.

Even without drafting anybody, the improvements possible with this roster are SUBSTANTIAL! A small tweak here and there and these guys seriously develop.

Now factor in a nice draft haul?

Taryn,
I am genuinely happy for you to finally give in to a sense of excitement.
Just remember, it's okay if they fail and you feel let down- keep in mind it doesn't mean you were wrong to feel excitement. It just means the other guys get paid to play, too.

I wonder, though- does this mean that the Packers-Cowboys game will command more real estate on your TV/Monitor next week? :)

Had family obligations and couldn't watch much of the game, but was impressed with the fact that the Bears only had 9 points (3 field goals). Props to Coaches MLF and JB (I have not been a big fan of either, but they got the job done today). Congrats to them and our up & coming team!

If Watson could ever stay healthy, him and Bo Melton are two burners who would give defenses fits for years to come...not to mention the rest of the WR group...pretty well stacked...

No it doesn't. You're the fking dimwit who wanted Love benched for Clifford. I haven't once seen you post anything positive about Love.

Between #9 & 80, they should be able to fill one role on the team all season. Hopefully they get used that way next season.

Christian Watson needs to earn his spot, total down year for him he can't be in top five of depth chart.

When he did play this season, he was their best receiver once he got rounded into shape. He will still at least be in their top three if healthy.

The biggest issue is once he's on the field, JL10 needs to adjust to him. If Bo Melton fills his role while #9 is out that's (almost) not a problem.

As much as I'd love to see our speed guys (Melton Watson Reed) get all the snaps, that'd be poor strategy. Need some more durable players in the mix.

I'd love to see #88 85 33 28 and a 9 when he's at 100% and HOT all on the field at the same time! Everybody can block, everybody can rush, everybody can catch. Add solid O line play and that's a team that's hard to beat :)

This win is such a great feeling and I felt the score made it appear much closer than how well the Packers dominated.
As for the playoffs, I feel like I can relax and watch next week’s game with no anxiety; the Packers
have already surpassed all my expectations.
Go Packers and Go Packer Nation.

I mostly agree - the only thing that I would want to see next week is that they individually continue to execute.

Having made the post season, a good game next week with confirm to those young guys in their own minds that they truly belong there, and it will set the tone for next year.

Nantz summed it up well - able to consistently turn what should be 2 yards into 4+ yards. Best pound for pound RB in the league.

2 things for certain: the (poor) Bears still suck
AND,
Aaron Jones IS THE MAN!
Gotta find a way to keep him a Packer.

Glad to see that they eventually dialed back the zone coverage. Passing off the coverage assignment for DJ More to a LB (Walker) is a disaster.

Better up-front pressure and (mostly) better discipline by the D front.

2 good interchangeable TE's are becoming fun to watch.

Bo Melton rocking the #80 jersey is absolutely channeling Donald Driver now. #keeper.

That throw by Love to Melton on the near TD. #PayTheMan

Owens now has 2 fair trophy QB bell ringers. If they want to run and eke out that extra yard, then be prepared to pay the piper. Don't change, Jon (BTW good game and quite the improvement on the season).

Karl Brooks and Engabare had good games.

On to Mike McCarthy in Jerry-Land........ well, well, well! The Packers aren't strangers to that building either!!!! HERE WE GOOOOO......!!!

Go Pack Go

It did seem Owens was already in the air before the slide by Fields, so no penalty was the right decision by the referees (and good for them!).
The major impact to Fields was not from Owens, but from Fields banging his head on the ground.
Good solid football by Owens.

Also a good job by Owens using his shoulder and not remotely getting his helmet involved.

They were close calls, but I didn't necessarily think they were bad calls. Packers had some bad luck, as the close calls all went against them, with the exception of Owens not getting a flag for hitting Justin Fields when he slid. (I think that was the right call, but it was pretty darn close.) I don't know if CBS ever showed another replay of that Chicago catch that LaFleur challenged. It sure looked like an incompletion on the one replay they showed.

It would be interesting to see the questionable Bears catch that was unsuccessfully challenged juxtaposed with the questionable drop by Melton in the endzone that was unsuccessfully challenged.
Both were tantalizingly close either way.
Maybe it was a matter of the officials going with the call on the field.
Good for the Packers overcom
