Initially this grade was going to be lower, but considering the fact that the Bears were forced to start two rookie linebackers against the Packers, this grade fits.
Greene saw limited action on the first drive as the Bears ran a lot of their nickel package, but following the injury to Aaron Rodgers, the Bears at times tried to stack the box with eight-man fronts.
He and Bostic both tried tackling Eddie Lacy too high on a few occasions, and all around the Bears did a poor job of wrapping up the ball carrier all night.
On the James Starks touchdown run, James Anderson missed his gap completely and left a huge opening that allowed Starks to score virtually untouched. Anderson also whiffed on what appeared to be a surefire interception in the third quarter.
Overall, the biggest struggles for the linebackers came against the run and in order to slow down strong running games, they will need to shore up their assignments and work on their tackling.
