Well America, we all know who I want to win this one. The Second Coming.

Have you seen how freaking amazing he is?

There he is. In all his glory.

And let's be real. Aaron Rodgers is the Green Bay Packers. He will lead them to the promised land. Sadly, I don't have the time right now to post all the highlights that Frank did, but I'll do some quick stuff on each team.

The Packers have the obvious advantage at QB. Rodgers is clearly one of the best in football, and has done it without much of a running game this year. Cutler can be a very good QB as well. Unfortunately, I don't think he has the grit necessary to be an elite one. It seems to me that this game will be decided in the first quarter by the Packer front 7 against the Chicago offensive line. If Bishop and Matthews start sacking Cutler and taking away the running games early, then Cutler will feel that pressure the rest of the game. He will throw picks and make bad decisions.

I personally have felt that the Bears have flown under the radar all season, very quietly earning their number two seed.

They only had the number 22 rush offense in the NFL. The Packers only had the number 18 rush defense. The Bears have the number 2 rush D, but the Packers don't really rush anyway, finishing 24th. Its hard to tell which teams has more weapons. Mike Martz has done a great job revamping a poor Chicago offense, but it hasn't been that good. On the passing side, Packers ranked 5th, Bears 20th. Those ranks are the same defensively, and I think that is what makes the difference in this game.

Look for Rodgers to take advantage of the Chicago secondary with his multiple receiving threats. Look for the Bears to mix it up a lot, you'll hear Forte, Olson, Knox, and Hester all called out multiple times, but other guys will get the ball as well.

In their first meeting, the Bears beat the Packers at home 20-17. A few weeks ago, the Packers held off the Bears at an icy Lambeau, 10-3. These teams always play great games. I think we'll see another close one, but with the most points between these two this year. But I'm calling it: Packers 24, Bears 17.
