The Green Bay Packers are sitting at 3-0 (along with the Lions and Bills) as one of the three remaining unbeaten teams. They've got some issues on defense to sort out (and special teams of course) but just a reminder that they've gotten off to a great start.
Green Bay Packers news | Green Bay Packers P Tim Masthay saw Chicago Bears' fake punt return, but no one else did | Green Bay Press Gazette. Make him the special teams coach! He's the only one who knows what's going on! I start to feel better about Shawn of the Dead Slocum after he adds Masthay, and WR Randall Cobb is looking good on returns, and then a near blunder like this happens.
On call, Newhouse delivers - JSOnline. The injury to RT Bryan Bulaga looked bad, but it's a being called a bruised knee. If he follows the same timeline as CB Tramon Williams (who looked like he suffered a serious injury in the Saints game, but it was a bruised shoulder) he might miss a game or two. I'd be worried before, but Marshall Newhouse played a lot better than I expected. He had some bad preseason games mixed in with some good ones, so I'm still worried about his consistency. He might not be so good next week.
Green Bay Packers news | Green Bay Packers TE Jermichael Finley burns Chicago Bears coverage | Green Bay Press Gazette The Bears were short handed in the secondary with injuries to S Major Wright and S Chris Harris. Craig Steltz replaced them, and Finley had 3 TDs. They just didn't have an answer for him. And it wasn't just Steltz as one of his TDs was against LB Lance Briggs. He was a big advantage in this game.
Bears to wear alternate orange jerseys this week versus Packers - Windy City Gridiron. I don't like when the Bears get ready for hunting season. It just doesn't look like the Packers are playing the Bears.
