Waiting For Monday Night: Bears at Packers

There wasn't much news from the NFC North this weekend, except the Vikings' latest collapse has brought out the back stabbing and that former Bears LT J'Marcus Webb has officially begun his revolving door act with the Vikings.
It looks like this picture above is from 1996, with S Eugene Robinson, DT Santana Dotson, and DE Reggie White. I don't know (probably don't care) who they're tackling.

As for tonight's upcoming Bears/Packers game, Marc Trestman says he won't change the game plan with Josh McCown at QB, and the Bears recently signed DT Jay Ratliff to provide depth to their struggling defensive line. Once upon a time, Ratliff was a very good player, but it's still an open question whether he'll be able to play at all this season due to injuries. He certainly won't play tonight. Also, it doesn't help the Bears that he was a big off-field/locker room problem for the Cowboys.

Jack's been writing about WR James Jones, who could play tonight. On defense, LB Brad Jones is back but LB Clay Matthews and LB Nick Perry are still out. That means Dom Capers is going to be creative about playing Jones along with LB Jamari Lattimore (who was great as an injury replacement), and the defense will need something from rookies OLB Nate Palmer and Andy Mulumba.
