Packers vs. Bears...lesser of two evils?

Recommended Posts

In trying to determine who I want to win tonight, or, more accurately, who I'd rather see lose the most tonight, I found myself going through every angle...

Let it be known that I hate the Packers marginally more than I hate the Bears. That said, a loss by the Bears drops both teams to 1-1 which is a bit more beneficial for the Vikes than having a division foe be 2-0 off the bat (and yes, this is based on my delusion that the Vikings will be competitive this year...it's my Kool-aid and I will drink as much as I want to). So, what I finally determined is that I want the Bears to just do enough to serve up a gut-wrenching loss for the Packers...like a last second Hail Mary...during which a massive D-lineman rolls over on Cutler's ankle and puts him on the shelf for the rest of the season.

Am I bad person?

I guess if I had my druthers I would want the Bears to win. That would help a bit and make the road tougher for the Pack to win it it all. That being said, I don't think its going to make much difference as the Pack are a HUGE favorite to win it this year. Actually I'll be shocked if they don't steam roll everybody come play=off time...

Take the delusional/emotional thinking out of the equation and you have to go with a Bears win, based on your greater hatred for the Pack. That said, I hope that my Packers win tonight just for spite!

In my perfect world the bears would win and during post game handshakes Rogers and Cutler both trip and break each others throwing hands.

Oh course all that means for the Vikings is that their chances to win the division go from 1/1,000,000 to 1.2/1,000,000. But I'll take it and I'm sure the vikings would put that one in the win column if it were to happen.

Nothing remotely close to last year....one they aren't going to waste there time, energy "both phyiscal and mental" with an undefeated season or nonsense individual records. They will be set up to to peak at the end of the year. And with the improvements on defense and the best coaching staff there is the Packi is a big of lock to win it as can possibly be in todays NFL.

I see what you're doing here, setting them up for failure.

Will somebody please make the long hair "claymaker" pee in a cup? If anyone is on roids in the NFL its that guy. Faster then running backs and stronger then the biggest O lineman. Im sure its all natural though..... yeah right.

      The pups and I put on 10.5 miles today and flushed 3 hens, 2 grouse and I killed a pine tree, 1 rooster flushed wildly 100 yards to left of us. It sure was fun to get out and seeing some birds. We did jump a good number of deer.

      A couple of Facebook posters on Lake Vermilion Cabin Owners group said that there was still open water in Big Bay Friday Morning.  I am guessing that they may be talking about Oak Narrows.  I'm staying with my original freeze-over date of Thursday, December 1.   Somebody I know who went out fishing from McKinley Park Saturday said that Big Bay was frozen over.  He also said he walked all around the bay and found thicknesses of 1" to 5" of ice, so it is still very questionable.  It should be safe for walking by the middle of next week.   This site will have ice reports for the next week or so.  I will be up the middle of next week and should report on the ice by Thursday night.  The moderator has merged this topic with the Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports topic so I will switch to posting there when I have fishing reports.  Good luck fishing, but be very careful of varying ice conditions.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!

      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.

      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
