Future not bright after Packers sweep

Future not bright after Packers sweep

Posted by Bob LeGere on Mon, 12/14/2009 - 01:20
After Sunday's loss completed a season sweep by Green Bay, the Bears are now 7-5 against the Packers under Lovie Smith. The Packers had won 18 of 20 against the Bears before Smith took over in 2004, and they swept the Bears in each of the three seasons before Smith arrived. "It's the situation we're in right now," Smith said. "The season hasn't turned out exactly the way we'd like. We don't know exactly how to respond to it, but we'll just have to do something about it in the future." The Bears are in Baltimore next to face the 7-6 Ravens, who dismantled the Lions 48-3 on Sunday, rushing for 308 yards and holing Detroit to 229 total yards. After that, the Bears return home to meet the 11-2 Vikings before finishing up against the 2-11 Lions in Detroit.
