Home Opener Curse?

Packers 10 - Bears 21

We always beat the Bears. It's practically a foregone comclusion. Everyone picked us to win today. We expect it now. Maybe that's the problem.

Lovie Smith (or Lovie Jones, as Dick Stockton called him today) made the bold statement just after he was hired as the Bears' head coach that their #1 goal was to beat Green Bay. Anyone get the feeling they wanted it more? They kicked our asses. At Lambeau. In our home opener. Like Minnesota did last year.

The good: Brett got another passing TD, which extends his streak to 27 games. Better still: That gives him a total of 25 TD passes against the Bears, which is the most against a single opponent in the NFL.

The bad: Well, we did lose. We beat Chicago in lots of stats, but... come on: Scoreboard. Our defense was crap. They ran through us for an average of over 6 yards a carry. Our receivers dropped balls, Ahman fumbled on the 5 and they scored off it, Brett had 2 interceptions... I could go on, but I'll stop now.
