Packers Morning Buzz: The Bears are still inadequate
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers, from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
Pete Dougherty starts us off with his postgame column assessing exactly what the Packers accomplished with their victory over the Bears.
The Bears, with a rookie quarterback and very possibly the worst receiving corps in the league, aren’t equipped to attack the Packers’ secondary like New Orleans and Detroit did. And while the Bears run the ball well with Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen, the Packers’ run defense has been pretty good, too.
So while the Packers have to feel good about Hundley making a couple important plays and getting his first win, they also should heed his words from his postgame news conference. Because there are less favorable matchups coming up over the season’s final seven weeks, and while the win is good for morale, next Sunday will be a re-set against a Baltimore Ravens team coming off its bye.
