Live blog: Bears vs. Packers

We’re live blogging the Chicago Bears vs. the Green Bay Packers.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:02 PM

Hi All – Time again for the Bears Blog.  I’m Jules – during the week I schedule all those commercials you hear on WGN. I am a big football fan and my 2 team are the Lions (sorry grew up in MI) and Bears (lived here for last 12 years) so I am all in to see Aaron and the Packers take it in the teeth today!! Go Bears!!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:04 PM

Calf testing??  did he bring some cows down from WI??

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:04 PM

first 3rd down – this would be a huge stop!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:05 PM

darn!  should have had AR on the turf

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:07 PM

Good so far stopping the run! That’s something 🙂

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:08 PM

CANNOT let him have that much time to throw.  We can’t stop a 3rd and 11.  ugh

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:09 PM

come on D!! killing me… already..

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:10 PM

Princess Rogers… it is football ya know

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:11 PM

ok… so that was horrible.  less than 3 minutes to a TD.  Playing behind… against the Packers… in the freezing… hmmmm.. how is that gonna work?

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:14 PM

Come on Barkley!! Time to impress me

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:15 PM

why oh why didn’t I get Howard on my FF team??

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:16 PM

Lions are losing too??? ugh!! I need 2 wins from my teams today.  Lions and Bears Oh my.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:16 PM

Alshon… come on dude.. that was totally catchable.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:17 PM

Nice!! ST!! AT least they have to traverse the whole filed.  Gettem D!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:20 PM

Can I swear on this blog? really 20 yards from the end zone?

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:22 PM

no no no — don’t late hit the princess

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:23 PM

and they call a ticky little holding – come on refs

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:25 PM

Stanford??  we are letting a small, former WR , smart guy run on us?

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:25 PM

good follow through on D that time… didn’t give up on the play. 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:26 PM

OK – another shot at a 3rd down.  Come on D!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:29 PM

YES!!!!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:29 PM

Love it!  Escape nothing – he never saw it coming

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:31 PM

Movie spot for Not Him claiming it is a smart and clever movie???? It may be funny but I have serious doubts about smart and / or clever. 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:32 PM

Santa is at the game.. he of course is used to the cold.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:33 PM

gotta pick up this 3rd – defense has to have some rest.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:34 PM

Wow – that would have been so awesome…. terrible replay from behind the ball.  

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:35 PM

Does anyone want a watch for the holidays? just wondering…

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:36 PM

I have arrived !!! Hey Julie

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:37 PM

Hi Shaun!! Did you see that play?  Heart breaker.

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:37 PM

Down 7 points i see.  Another drop by Bellamy 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:37 PM

2 flags… On a punt? oh boy

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:38 PM

Just saw it. Great effort by Matt Barkley to get that pass off

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:39 PM

ok – penalty on the bad guys. We’ll take it.  Come on D

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:40 PM

Really?? what happened there? did we miss tackling at defense school?

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:42 PM

I do not think of the packers as “chaos with a purpose” these dudes know what they are doing, nothing random about AR

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:43 PM

now that was some tackling! 

Going for it on 4th .. come on you dorks.. really???

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:43 PM

Great play by CJ Wilson on 3rd down. Doesn’t he own a car dealership?

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:44 PM

We sure run a lot of commercials for CJ Wlson 🙂

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:45 PM

YES!!!!!!!!!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:45 PM

Can’t usually give him that much time – but anytime AR’s tush is on the grass it is a good thing.  GO BEARS

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:46 PM

Rodgers definitely not 100 percent.  Great coverage sack by McPhee

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:46 PM

Is the iphone 7 really “new” anymore?  

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:46 PM

Let’s score!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:47 PM

I agree with that!  time to score!

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:47 PM

Right! The 7S is on the way

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:49 PM

Nice!  2 catches! First down!! Here we go!! 

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:49 PM

Cameron Meredith is becoming one of my faves on this team.

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:50 PM

Barkley manipulates the pocket much better than Cutler

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:51 PM

Whoo Hoo!!  Don’t compare Barkley to AR while he is playing against AR – that is kind of rude.  

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:52 PM

oh no… We can not have Howard go out. I hope he was just shook up..  fingers crossed

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:53 PM

OK- never seen that before. Logo knocked off – I am sure the cold had more to do with it than tackle

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:53 PM

The Bears logo got knocked off the helmet. wow

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:53 PM

shoot – really wanted 7 here.  Come on Connor!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:54 PM

OK – good drive! Made some catches!  we are warming up.. ha ha…

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:56 PM

Both my teams are down 7-3.  The Lions are making a habit of comebacks.. but I need some W’s!! 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:59 PM

For the record.. I am cold and I am sitting in my basement… can’t even imagine sitting in the -5. Something special about these fans!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 201612:59 PM

3rd down – key play – get em!!! 

Shaunequivocal December 18, 201612:59 PM

Jordan Howard is in the locker room.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:01 PM

Shaun -That is not good.  Or maybe he is just getting some hot chocolate 😉

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:03 PM

that hit looked bad – I think GB 70 is gonna need some concussion protocal

Shaunequivocal December 18, 20161:03 PM

i hope it is for some hot chocolate

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:04 PM

Troy and Joe Buck are super happy not to be hanging in Chi-town today.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:05 PM

There’s your Meredith!! Nice grab!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:06 PM

Whoo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shaunequivocal December 18, 20161:07 PM

There we go! Stiff arm galore from Bellamy! TD 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:07 PM

Bears on top with a BellamyTD!!! WE ARE WINNING!!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:10 PM

Stadium Rocking some Bon Jovi… I think it is an NFL mandate.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:11 PM

Anybody watch Skip and Shannon?  Apparently all they talk about is the Cowboys.. never seen it… but every promo mentions the Cowboys.

Shaunequivocal December 18, 20161:12 PM

Yeah, the Cowboys pop up in every show

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:12 PM

no flag?? GB holding… maybe? 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:15 PM

Jeremy Irons is in a movie inspired by a video game? Seems below his talent. 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:15 PM

Come on D!!!!!!!!!! Shut em down

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:16 PM

Nice interfering LeBlanc!! 

Shaunequivocal December 18, 20161:16 PM

No harm no foul

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:16 PM

Who was supposed to cover Cook??

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:17 PM

stop trying to get the fumble and just bring him down – that was really poor tackling

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:19 PM

THANK YOU!!… for not catching that totally catchable TD pass.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:20 PM

nice stop… too bad he couldn’t come down with that.. but probably tough to catch frozen football.

Shaunequivocal December 18, 20161:21 PM

McPhee tipped that FG!!

Shaunequivocal December 18, 20161:21 PM

Lets take the kickoff back for a TD

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:22 PM

ok – I am all for affordable health care.. but no one dances about insurance… no one..

Shaunequivocal December 18, 20161:24 PM

LOL

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:25 PM

why throw a 8 yard pass in this position?? risk of interception doesn’t seem worth it… I don’t think we have a :30 second drill with this squad… prove me wrong

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:41 PM

ok – did some laundry, got snacks, beverages.  Ready for 2nd half!! LETS GO BEARS!!! and LIONS!!  

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:42 PM

did I mention I hate Clay Mathews and that damn hair?? ugh.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:43 PM

no…… bummer….. we had such good momentum at the end of the 1st half.. Barkley never heard that coming.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:44 PM

That was more movement from Princess Rogers than he showed in the whole 1st half.. halftime painkillers?

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:45 PM

I would be happy if they only get 3.  Not HAPPY .. but happy.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:46 PM

THANK YOU… again!! another dropped TD pass slips through the fingers

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:48 PM

HOLD EM!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:48 PM

How can we not tackle a limping AR??? 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:50 PM

Shocked they didn’t go for it. I would have done a wildcat version of QB sneak…Montgomery probably could have jumped over the line… but again happy they only got 3 after that field position.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:53 PM

alright!.. lets get this drive going.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:55 PM

Not funny Ha Ha 😦

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:58 PM

I surely would not be throwing the ball to Adams if I was AR.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20161:59 PM

We totally missed tackling at football school.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:00 PM

Why why why are we letting AR run out of the pocket… the dude is legit hurt… come on D

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:02 PM

This 4 man rush isn’t really working for me…I need the red phone.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:03 PM

again… 2 yards from a touchdown and we go for the ball instead of the tackle.. Tackle low.. bring em down. UGH!!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:04 PM

Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:06 PM

so far this half 2 turnovers leading to 2 scores.  Come on Bears.. pull it together!!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:07 PM

Are there any dudes left on the planet that are unaware Viagra exists?  Do they really need all this marketing? I think everyone is aware.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:08 PM

Come on LIONS!!  The Bears W is getting a little dicey here.. you need the W

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:12 PM

1st down… keep driving.. 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:13 PM

jump dude… totally catchable.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:14 PM

who the heck was that going too??? Was there a Bear in the Zip code? SHOOT!  

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:14 PM

HaHa still not funny

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:17 PM

hmmm .. what is wrong with Montgomnery

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:17 PM

Guess it didn’t matter….. 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:18 PM

good thing you all can’t hear me now…

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:20 PM

At this point… I am wishing I didn’t have cable … so I could flip to Lions game… but no Dish here

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:21 PM

hey Langford – there’s my Spartan.  Go Green!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:26 PM

sidenote – what is happening to my 4thQ Detroit D????

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:26 PM

Nice Alshon…

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:27 PM

Just hit em in the head with the ball – that will wake AJ up

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:28 PM

TD Bears!!! All about AJ!  looked good on that drive.  Amazing what happens when you don’t turnover the ball.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:28 PM

“only” a ten point game… let’s not get crazy here.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:29 PM

I need a “playbook of work” I need to ask WGN about that.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:34 PM

isn’t it crazy that the seahawks have clinched their division and all anyone has done is talk about how bad they are this year.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:37 PM

Nice Sack – sure like to see AR on the turf.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:38 PM

McPhee killing it today.  He came to play!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:39 PM

Still can’t believe an animated film is using Eminem in their commercial.  Maybe they don’t know who Eminem is… did Em really need that cash?  #fandisappointed

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:41 PM

I cannot imagine being a cameraman out there in this weather.  They don’t get to go hide in the bathroom.  They are out there and have to pay attention the whole game. BRRRRRRRRRR

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:44 PM

1st time for everything… 3rd down conversion

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:45 PM

we’ll take it.  don’t be mean to those QBs ya know… 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:45 PM

TD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:46 PM

WOW!! I guess the fat lady isn’t singing quite yet.  Another nice drive!  Nice run by Howard

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:48 PM

looks like my Lions are making that dazzling 4Q comeback pretty tough. Stafford intercepted in the end zone.  down 6-17 with 1:59 left

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:51 PM

come on D!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:52 PM

I know he didn’t get the first but how did he get out of box?

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:52 PM

Barkley – it is all you babe.  Bring it!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:54 PM

Barkley over 300 yrds?  Who Knew.. much easier to watch a QB that you want to cheer for and see do well as opposed to Cutler.

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:54 PM

Key play – need this 3rd

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:54 PM

Nice!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:57 PM

it was behind… but again catchable.. get some stickem!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20162:59 PM

Another 1st down.  Awesome!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20163:02 PM

Nice Sparty!!  Lets get this!!!! 

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20163:05 PM

clap clap clap!!!!! Whoo Hoo!!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20163:06 PM

Did NOT need a 10 yrd penalty – grumble grumble grumble

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20163:08 PM

FUDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20163:11 PM

keep him inbounds!!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20163:15 PM

Really… killing me…. hate you all

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20163:16 PM

Miss it!  NOONAN!

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20163:18 PM

Don’t forget to tune into
the best and loudest Bears Postgame show on 720 WGN AM, Hamp, O’B and Koz.  They might actually have a few good things to
say about the Bears this week… but after that 60 yard bomb.. not so sure

juliesternwgnradio December 18, 20163:18 PM

Thanks for hanging out with me today… Stay warm out there!
