When Lovie Smith was introduced as the new head coach on Jan. 15, he vowed to beat Green Bay, win the division and win a Super Bowl. He delivered on the latter immediately, guiding the Bears to a win at Lambeau Field in just his second game. It ended Green Bay's seven-game winning streak over the Bears. "I've never been in a fight where some guy told me he was going to beat me up and he beat me up," Packers linebacker Nick Barnett said of Smith's declaration.
