Packers respect speed of Bears' receiving corps

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Packers dominated the Bears' wide receivers in their Week 17 matchup at Lambeau Field. Rashied Davis, playing in place of injured Earl Bennett, had seven catches for 63 yards. But Devin Hester's 16-yard catch was the only other reception by a wide receiver. Johnny Knox was shut out for the first time all season.

But Packers safety Charlie Peprah wasn't gloating this week, saying ''we've got our hands full again'' with the Bears receivers Sunday.

''They've got speed,'' Peprah said. ''All those guys can run and they can run after the catch. That's the problem they present. Big plays. The first third down [against the Seahawks], even Olsen can run like a wideout. He ran right by the safety. They all present that problem. From outside in. Even Forte out of the backfield can do the same things. We've got our hands full again.''
