The Green Bay Packers have had the Chicago Bears’ number for a while now. The Brett Favre era gave way to the Aaron Rodgers era, and during that time the Packers have been one of the better teams in the NFL, while CHicago has been inconsistent to say the least. More recently, the Packers have won 15 of their last 17 meetings including the last 8 in Soldier Field. The Packers have also overtaken the Bears for the lead in the all-time series.
So when Packer QB Aaron Rodgers spews confidence about winning in Chicago, he has good reason. A couple weeks ago he flippantly mentioned they they’d head to Chicago, “a place we’ve won a number of times,” and win again.
That comment made it’s way to the Bears locker room and the Monster’s of the Midway we’re not pleased. The biggest Monster of all, Akiem Hicks, had this to say from 670 The Score. “Nobody forgot Aaron’s little comments after they lost that big game where he said, ‘All we got to do is win out, and go to Soldier Field and win like we’ve done a bunch in the past.’ I’m real excited for Aaron to come down here and play this game.”
Bears’ head coach Matt Nagy was asked about the recent success the Pack has had and he was just as annoyed as Hicks. “I don’t care. I won’t care. I care about us and our history and our tradition. I don’t care about what’s happened here in the past as far as streaks and wins and losses. To me it means nothing.”
