07:53 AM ET 09.27 | In the case of Jay Cutler vs. Aaron Rodgers, the latter drew an overwhelming win during a roundtable column, but former Bears coach Mike Ditka wasn't so sure. "I like Aaron Rodgers for this reason: You look at his past work, and it was a little better than Jay's. Coming into this season, I thought he was better. When you look at Jay, talent is not the problem. Now, I've seen him do some things I didn't know he could do. Right now, coming into this game, the two are about even."

Awesome! Mike knows football.

I don't know that I would rank Cutler with Rodgers... but I've got to give the kid credit. He hasn't cost the Bears a game yet.

Been awhile since I looked forward to a Bears/Packers game - tonight should be fun.

Rodgers is much more capable, plus he has a 100% better receiving corps.

gross miscalculation...

sorry to all you cowboys' fans out there with my saying that the 'boys wouldn't beat the Texans... I was very surprised by that outcome; happy for you that you still have Wade as your coach... it could be worse, you could have Snorve Turner back...

He's due Otis. Like tonight.

No problem, zephyr - most of us thought the same.

As for the Bolts... it's starting to look as if Seattle is going to be a tough place to go play a game.

One of the loudest places to play. Very tough for opposing offenses.

I called the Dallas-Houston game right. The Cowboys have more going for them than the pundits and nay-sayers understand.

San Diego is being outed. Their success over the years is the luck of being in a weak division. I still think Seattle is a fraud, though.

The team I can't figure out is Kansas City.

They will be figured out here pretty soon.

Agreed.

What I can't figure out is why the Redskins still suck.

They are the Redskins. Maybe next year.

The 'Boys hadn't given any indication that they were ready to play. Games 1 and 2 looked like they were still on the beach in CA. I guess they finally got the sand out of their shoes yesterday.

Jets are very good.

Quite likely true, but I'm not sure the Dolphins are that great, and the Pats didn't really look that good in beating Buffalo.

Yep. Can't stand them, but I have to say they looked real good yesterday. The defense was unstoppable and who woulda thought Roy Williams would play out of his mind good?

Can't blame this on Haynesworth, now, can they?

I'm thinking Shanahan would love to but no. Their problems go far beyond that.

I'm still trying to figure out who was stuffed into that No. 11 jersey that was running nice routs and catching the ball.

Ditka has been doing the "DRUGS", I think, we have seen the hot Cutler playing for the last few games, now its time for the cold one to make an appearance.
