GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAU) - While the football world eagerly awaits the impending on- field standoff between Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers, the team first must prepare itself for another new gunslinger who's made his way onto the NFC North scene. Jay Cutler will make his official debut as a Chicago Bear when the hot-shot quarterback's new team heads to historic Lambeau Field this Sunday for a season-opening showdown with a Packers squad that has its sights set on a bounce-back year.

Last year's Packers were significantly better than the bears offensively, although that wasn't reflected in the overall standings. Green Bay put up the fifth-most points in the league during Aaron Rodgers' long-awaited takeover for Favre under center, but a team that won 13 regular-season tests and reached the 2007 NFC Championship Game with the future Hall of Famer at the controls slumped to a disappointing 6-10 mark in the protege's first year as a starter.
