Rodgers' numbers in two games vs Chicago: 47-69 (%68), 4 TDs, 2 picks, 94 passer rating.
Excellent numbers. Not earth-shattering, but very good. You know damn well at some point Bears management had a conversation that went something like this:
"What the F? Favre killed us for 16 years, now we have to deal with this guy for the next decade? Couldn't they have replaced #4 with some Bubby Brister-type guy? Screw the Jim Millers, Rex Grossmans, and Kyle Ortons of the world...lets go get a real QB."
Sentiment from Chicagoland runs the gamete - from shocked to ecstatic to not buying it. Me? I don't like it one bit. Don't know who he'll throw it to, but WRs are much easier to find than QBs. The distinct quarterback advantage Green Bay had in the NFC North has just been nullified. I'd still rather have Rodgers (Cutler is rumored to be a lunk-headed drunkard who's dedication to football is questioned), but Cutler's ability is obvious.
