Packers will/must win versus Bears
When last we spoke on this blog, the Packers were reeling. Nothing was working offensively, nor had it for the previous three weeks. Aaron Rodgers appeared off and we weren't quite sure why while the receivers continue to befuddle us with their inability to get open. Fast forward to the here and now, things have changed to a certain extent. No, the offense has found itself entirely as mistakes continue to be made, but they did rediscover at least a portion of themselves this past weekend at Minnesota. Eddie Lacy was once again running the ball successfully while Rodgers was able to connect with some of his targets for big gains and touchdowns. It was a welcome site for all Packer fans as it provided something to build off. Now comes Thursday Night Football and a short week for the Pack. Once an afterthought, the Bears come to town having played much better football of late and there's no doubt they'd like nothing more than to spoil the homecoming of Brett Favre and Bart Starr. Will they? I seriously doubt it? I've been wrong in my pick of the Packer game each of the last two weeks but this one seems like a lock. There are finally some things going right in Title Town and I would seriously doubt they'll allow their hated rivals to spoil the special atmosphere. Add in Dom Capers' unit -- which has performed admirably the last two weeks, especially against Minnesota -- and you have the makings of a big Packer victory to maintain control in the the NFC North. And let's face it ... anything less on Bart Starr's final trip to Green Bay would be downright tragic.

To suggest the Packers should panic after falling at home to Detroit would be silly. There's nothing good that can…
