Open Thread: Green Bay at Chicago

Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears
Sunday, December 23rd, 2007
This is an open thread for the game.

The current weather is 17 degrees with light snow and wind which makes it feel like -1. Not a blizzard but with the wind there shouldn't be a lot of passing either.

Inactives from

Chicago Bears
Inactives: QB Rex Grossman (3rd QB), CB Nathan Vasher, SAF Josh Gattis, LB Lance Briggs, G Josh Beekman, WR Mike Haas, DE Mark Anderson, NT Darwin Walker.

Fantasy take: QB Kyle Orton will start for the second consecutive week. The Bears defense will be without Briggs and Vasher, so this unit will be more vulnerable against Green Bay.

Four starters on defense are out; Briggs, Vasher, Walker, and Anderson.
Green Bay Packers
Inactives: QB Aaron Rodgers (3rd QB), WR Shaun Bodiford, CB Jarrett Bush, FB Korey Hall, G Allen Barbre, DT Ryan Pickett, TE Ryan Krause, DT Conrad Boston.

Fantasy take: TE Bubba Franks is active, but TE Donald Lee will continue to start. The Packers' defensive backfield is at close to full strength.

Starting tackle Pickett and nickel CB Bush are out, but since Chicago's offense is unlikely to do much with Orton at QB it shouldn't have a huge impact.
