Be Calmed My Beating Heart...

WHEW!  Trying to catch my breath here.  Packers lead, 14-0 against the Bears and the second half is about to begin.

There is a LOT of football chess left to play and I am by no means sanguine that the Packers have this one in the bag.  That being said, I believe the Packers have a slight edge on the better players, starting with the quarterback position.  Rodgers has been efficient and FAST today. He's not giving the Bears defense time to key in on him, getting rid of the ball quickly and has been relatively accurate, I believe he's completed something like 75% of his passes during the first half.  Packers are balancing passing with running and have well over 100 yards the first half.  Rodgers has been outstanding, I think, and a full host of Packers players have stepped up and made plays when they had to.  It is truly a team effort.

Wow - over 250 yards and 14 first downs.  The announcers are - can you believe this - pooh-poohing this because "it's only a 14 point game."  You know what - well, I will try and be a lady and not say what I really want to say right now.

Bears receive and run the ball to their own 40.  Cutler evidently may be hurt but will stay in the game (for now).  Forte has been stuffed trying to run the ball twice.  It's 3rd and 4 and an incomplete pass makes it a punting situation for the Bears.

Tramon Williams is back to catch the ball but he lets the Bears down it at about the 14.

A frustrating start to the 2nd half for the Bears, who needed to make some big plays and move the ball down the field.  I can feel the change in the air all the way up here in Milwaukee - it's definitely showing green and gold in the sky right now, and the sun is shining more brightly than ever for Packers gold.  Damn - even my hair is starting to look better.  What's up with that???

Packers will have the ball when we return after commercial break...
