Reaction: Packers Beat Bears 38-17

Alright, who saw that coming? I certainly didn't, and I'm sure most others are with me in that train of thought. But hey, I'll still take it. So with that, here are my reactions to the Packers' 38-17 win over the Bears today at Soldier Field, one that evened up their record at 2-2:

1. Play-calling was a lot better:
Basically, Mike McCarthy just let his good players reach their full potential. That's not hard to do, but I guess it's better than the alternative.

2. Aaron Rodgers is really good:
That was already known to us, but in case you had doubts after last week's disaster here I am to remind you. He's amazing at what he does. Some of those scrambles today were legitimately god-like.

3. This team's dominant again:
14-2 here we come. (?)

14-2? Man, you're always so optimistic. Which is good because I was in a real funk coming into this game. I'm really glad Aaron Rodgers proved me wrong.

I got carried away last year saying something similar before Rodgers went down. But this time I feel different. Currently, the three hardest teams on the schedule (Panthers, Patriots, Saints), look terrible, with the rest of the way looking pretty routine. So yea, it looks possible. As long as Rodgers stays healthy it's possible
