Packer Notes: The Lions Non-Catch, and The Bears New Left Tackle

 - The Chicago Bears should have one loss! I'm looking forward to this game because of their win last week, not the records. The Cowboys aren't a great team, but the Bears played well and QB Jay Cutler and CB D.J. Moore made some big plays. Losing at home is never good, but barely hanging on to beat the lowly Lions at home isn't very impressive either. It was a catch, but WR Calvin Johnson shouldn't have put the ball on the ground to create a doubt. 

 - I saw that the Bears lost starting LT Chris Williams early in their game last week with a hamstring injury, he had an MRI this week which can't be a good sign, and I'm surprised his replacement was OL Frank Omiyale. You might remember him as one of the Bears big free agent signings in 2009. I thought he looked lousy at left guard for them last year, and he was benched mid-season. But he was eventually put back into the starting lineup and ended up starting 12 games in 2009. Apparently he did a pretty good job protecting Cutler's blind side last week. It'll be interesting to see how he holds up against DE Cullen Jenkins next week.
