Bears, Packers Renew Rivalry Tonight

September 22, 1986| Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers will meet for the 132nd time tonight (6 p.m. PDT, Ch. 7 and 10) with memories of last season's two confrontations lingering.

The Bears (2-0) remember what they considered cheap shots by the Packers in the second game last season. "It's not going to be like last year," Bear Coach Mike Ditka said. "We're not going to be the hittees. We're going to be the hitters. That's fact."

Meanwhile, the Packers (0-2) remember how they were embarrassed by William (The Refrigerator) Perry, who ran for a touchdown and twice bulldozed linebacker George Cumby to clear the way for Walter Payton touchdowns.

Cumby now is with the Buffalo Bills, but the Packers haven't forgotten.

"We were embarrassed for a defensive lineman to get all that publicity," defensive lineman Donnie Humphrey said. "It was national TV, Monday night, Coach Ditka had his chance to embarrass us and he did it."
