Aaron Rodgers

Ever wonder what Aaron Rodgers would look like in a Bears uniform?

Ever wonder what Aaron Rodgers would look like in a Bears uniform?

There's been a lot of uncomfortable chatter this offseason about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers potentially becoming a Chicago Bear next offseason. It's been sparked mostly by the Packers' decision to draft Jordan Love in the first round of 2020 draft. A Rodgers/Packers divorce seems inevitable, and it could come as soon as 2021.

Rodgers is an infamous Bears beater. He's been a thorn in the side of Chicago football fans since he took over as the Packers' starter in 2008. He has an 18-5 record against the Bears and has thrown 47 touchdowns to just 10 interceptions in those starts. Truly remarkable.

Rodgers' dominance of the Bears has created a lot of animosity towards him as a player. Bears fans don't like him. They hate him (in the football fandom sense). But that doesn't mean they can't fall in love with him if he donned Chicago's classic threads next season.

What would Rodgers look like in the Bears' navy and orange? Here's your answer, thanks to an awesome jersey swap on Twitter:

Bears fans could get used to that.

Brett Favre says he'd love to see Aaron Rodgers play for Chicago Bears

Brett Favre says he'd love to see Aaron Rodgers play for Chicago Bears

Brett Favre is apparently an agent of chaos. When he watches the Dark Knight, he probably roots for Heath Ledger.

How do we know this? Because during an appearance on Complex’s Load Management podcast, Favre suggested he’d love to see Aaron Rodgers play for the Bears.

One of the podcast’s hosts, “Chopz” suggests the sickening scenario to Favre who laughed at the thought.

“I would love to love to see that,” Favre said. “Just from the standpoint of, we (Rodgers and Favre) have killed the Bears collectively. I mean, Bear fans would probably be like, ‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I am so glad Aaron Rodgers is on my team.

“He instantly makes you a contender.”

Talk about an existential crisis for Bears fans. Flipping a switch and rooting for a guy that has caused so much misery in Chicago.

But it’s not outside the realm of reason as Rodgers has already hinted he believes his Packers career is coming to a close, and the Bears are in the midst of a quarterback competition.

Rodgers is 18-5 against the Bears, with 5,562 passing yards, 47 passing touchdowns and only 10 interceptions. He has more passing yards and touchdowns against the Bears than any other team in the league.

Rodgers has also mounted several crushing comebacks against the Bears. He returned from injury to erase a 17-0 halftime deficit to win 24-23 in Week 1 of the Bears’ centennial season. He ripped away an NFC North title-- and a playoff spot-- in 2013 with less than a minute left on the clock. And of course, he beat the Bears in Week 17 of the 2010-11 season to lock up the final playoff spot for the Packers, and then beat the Bears again in the NFC Championship game.

In all, Rodgers has led six 4th-quarter drives to beat the Bears. Would Chicagoans be able to forgive and forget all that if he ever switched the “G” on his helmet to a “C?”

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers doesn't expect to finish career in Green Bay

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers doesn't expect to finish career in Green Bay

Bears fans rejoice: Aaron Rodgers doesn’t foresee finishing his career in Green Bay. Rodgers made the comments in a video from the Ringer published on Tuesday.

Rodgers and host Kyle Brandt were discussing the Packers trading up to pick Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Which leads to a conundrum that Brandt brought up: do the Packers move on from Rodgers in the near future, or do they keep their first-round pick off the field?

“I think probably the first, the former,” Rodgers said. “I think that’s probably what happens.

“You know, based on just the circumstances around everything when you just look at the facts. They traded up, they drafted him. I would say they like him, they want to play him.”

If you think the Packers may sit Love for a few years to learn under Rodgers, just as they did when the team drafted Rodgers to replace Brett Favre, Rodgers says times have changed.

“It’s a different environment. You know in 2005, my first year, we were 4-12. The second year we were 8-8. There wasn’t a clamoring to play me because it was normal for young guys to sit.”

In the current NFL landscape it seems teams are built to win with a quarterback playing on his rookie deal. That affords more money to spread around the team, and less time to let a first-round pick sit on the bench.

So, how much more misery will Rodgers inflict on the Bears as a Packer? That remains to be seen, but perhaps the clock is ticking.
