poackChicago, Jan 24, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The large number of fans of the Chicago Bears who had gathered at the city’s Soldier Field to witness their team’s much-anticipated victory against the Green Bay Packers were in for a huge disappointment during the NFC championship game on Sunday. The Chicago Bears suffered a humiliating loss against their opponents in their hometown, dashing to the ground their hopes of earning a berth in the Super Bowl 2011 championship. The Packers cruised to the Super Bowl by defeating the Bears with 21-14 in what was the very first play-off game in the past 70 years between NFC’s two biggest rivals.

Despite the fact that the Chicago Bears’ player gave their best shot to dominate their opponents during the much-awaited NFC championship game, tasting victory seemed to be quite an uphill task for them considering the prowess with which the Packers played the game. While the Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had to be taken off the field with a knee injury during the second half of the game, quarterback Caleb Hanie tried his best to ensure victory for his team as he directed two fourth-quarter scoring drives.

While talking to reporters following the Packers victory, coach Mike McCarthy reiterated that Green Bay Packers is indeed a very good football team but going into the Super Bowl gives the team the perfect opportunity to achieve greatness. Meanwhile, the team’s quarterback Aaron Rodgers said in an interview later that the credit for winning the NFC championship surely goes to the Packers’ defense while confessing that he failed to play his best game during Sunday’s showdown against Bears.
