Every week, Packers radio play-by-play man Wayne Larrivee, who also co-hosts the "Pro Football Weekly" syndicated radio show with PFW editor-publisher Hub Arkush, answers three pertinent questions about the Packers.

1. In a game full of twists and turns, what was the turning point in your mind in the Week Three Packers-Bears games last Monday night?

Larrivee: The fumble by Packers WR James Jones in the fourth quarter changed the game once and for all in favor of the Bears. If the Packers don't turn the ball over at that point, they probably go on to win the game.

2. Just how much do you think the Packers miss RB Ryan Grant?

Larrivee: Any offense would miss 1,250 yards a season — especially on the ground. He is a huge loss even in a pass-first offense. They are struggling to replace that production.

3. Should first-round rookie Bryan Bulaga be starting at left tackle ahead of veteran Chad Clifton, who has looked pretty shaky through the first three games?

Larrivee: Not after just three games. The protection at both tackles was a little on the soft side. The penalties hurt on the offensive line, but in my opinion they were going up against a very aggressive and good defensive front seven in Chicago. That is the strength of the Bears' defense. I don't make any changes on the offensive line, barring injury, at this point of the season. Chad Clifton has been limited at times in practice with a balky knee, so that situation bears watching.
