LEFTOVER GAME QUOTES LaFleur's intro from last night. I just want to start off, man, what a hard-fought football game. You’ve got to give the Bears a ton of credit. We knew they were going to be a really tough opponent. They were for four quarters, we knew it was going to be a four-quarter battle. Just really proud of our defense, the effort, I thought they were smothering. I thought our special teams really picked up the slack. Obviously we’ve got a lot of room for improvement from the offensive side of the ball.

Rodgers, on whether it was a bittersweet win, considering how bad the offense played: It’s just sweet. It really is. Obviously I hold myself to a high standard and I didn't play great tonight. But to watch a defense like that, man that gives you a lot of confidence for where this team can go. In a game that most people thought we were going to get probably trounced. To have them play that well and to win in a tough environment against the reigning NFC North champs, that’s going to be a fun plane ride.

Rodgers, on the defense Yeah, that was fun to watch. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a performance like that. Obviously, a lot of credit to Mike Pettine and his staff. But to those players, I mean, just incredible effort. We didn’t do them a whole lot of favors with our own performance on offense. I mean, every time we needed something, a stop, they came up with some really big plays. Great for Adrian coming back to the team that drafted him to get a pick in the endzone there. But a lot of credit to the front. I thought we put a lot of pressure on ‘em. It looked like obviously both the Smiths, they were in the mix a bunch. It was just a dominating performance. It gives you a lot of confidence when you play like that on offense and win a game by a touchdown.

I wrote a story about the free agents and somehow left off this one from LaFleur: Yeah, they gave us a big boost, that’s for sure. It was great for Adrian to come in here and close out that game with a pick right there at the end. But I’m extremely happy that Gutey and his crew did a great job of getting those guys for us, because they were a difference tonight.
