Tribune reporterGREEN BAY -- The coaching adage is that a team is never as good as it might look in a victory and never as bad as it might appear in a defeat. Keeping that in mind, we’ll try to maintain perspective with 10 thoughts coming out of another ugly loss...
Maybe it’s just me, but I was totally unimpressed with the Packers defense. Completely and absolutely unimpressed. It was bad last season. It looked bad to start this season. The 49ers gashed the Packers for 186 yards rushing and 377 yards total,...

BOURBONNAIS — Tuesday brought more questions about the absence of Pro Bowl middle linebacker Brian Urlacher. Coach Lovie Smith said after Tuesday's practice at Olivet Nazarene University that Urlacher was excused for a second day for personal...
