Open Thread: Green Bay at Chicago

Date: December 22, 2008 Location: Chicago, IL
Time: 7:30 p.m. CST
Stadium: Soldier Field
TV: ESPN Favorite: Bears by 4
Weather: Damn Cold
Injury Report: Friday Injury Report
SBN Coverage: Windy City Gridiron My Prediction: I've got no idea

his game is all about the weather and the bitter cold. Anything could happen.

Inactives from

Packers: QB Brian Brohm (3rd), RB Brandon Jackson, FB Korey Hall, LB Danny Lansanah, T Kevin McCaskill, T Breno Giacomini, DT Anthony Torbio, DT Justin Harrell.

Analysis: RB DeShawn Wynn will see carries behind RB Ryan Grant with Jackson out. CBs Charles Woodson and Al Harris are active and will start, as expected.

Bears: QB Caleb Hanie (3rd), WR Devin Aromashodu, FB Jason McKie, LB Gilbert Gardner, G Terrence Metcalf, DT Matt Toeaina, WR Brandon Rideau, DE Ervin Baldwin.

Analysis: RB Matt Forte is active and will start, as expected. He’s safe to use in fantasy leagues. WR Marty Booker is also active.

Chicago seems to be at full strength. The Packers will miss Jackson due to his wrist injury (not a big deal because Mike McCarthy never lets him carry the ball unless it's a blowout). I doubt Wynn is given much of a chance either. Hall is missing his 2nd straight game, but it doesn't seem like the offense misses him much when he's out. FB John Kuhn should be fine as his replacement.
