QB Jay Cutler

“We’re all surprised. I think offensively we’re all disappointed in where we’re at. That’s why we’re working to try to get better.”

RB Matt Forte

“With a quarterback like they have and an offense like they run, we have to run the ball, control the clock and keep them off the field.”

WR Brandon Marshall

“I’m sitting here answering questions about the past and it’s a waste of my time. And that’s no good for the fans.”

LB Lance Briggs

“I’ve had great battles at Lambeau – really, really great battles and I’ll never forget it.”

CB Kyle Fuller

“It what you can do better to win. This is actually my first time facing a team twice, so I’m definitely looking forward to it after going back and seeing what you can do better.”

PACKERSQB Aaron Rodgers

“Everybody in the United States of America knows about this guy Rodgers, man. You can’t hide it. It is what it is. It’s Aaron Rodgers. You can’t say the wrong thing. He doesn’t do anything wrong.” — Bears defensive end Willie Young

WR Jordy Nelson

“We’ll try everything. We’ve got to be more physical, play faster and need better execution. All of the above.” – defensive coordinator Mel Tucker

WR Randall Cobb

“Jordy and Randall have had a lot of targets go their way. They’ve been open a lot.” — Rodgers

LB Julius Peppers

“They’ve got a good defense. They’ve got guys like Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, A.J. Hawk, their DB’s are really good. So their front, it’s not like they have a lack of talent.” — Forte

 S Micah Hyde

“It’s going to be another competitive game. We have to go up and get the ball because we know they’re capable of doing that.”
