Light blogging today, but I have to point out Mike McCarthy’s pre-halftime playcalling. It was awful. He correctly called two timeouts to get the Packers the ball back with (I believe) 2:35 left. Then, despite the fact that Favre has said the conditions are worse today then he’s every played in, McCarthy chose to throw three consecutive times before the two minute warning. The Bears got the ball back and promptly scored. They lead at halftime 13-7.
Perhaps the Packers can recover, but that was horrible playcalling. McCarthy had some questionable play calls in the first matchup against the Bears that certainly contributed to the loss. Let’s hope we’re not watching a repeat.
