Rodgers gave the crowd a dose of the truth

One good aspect of the game was the Chicago Bears continuing to play hard despite their troubles. After the first drive, they had trouble moving the ball and had a turnover. Additionally, some bad calls went their way.

Even when they got a break on an incompletion that should have been an interception, it came back to haunt them. Yes, the Bears got to continue the drive but the officials didn’t reset the play clock and then called them for a delay of game. Fields noticed the clock running down and tried to call a timeout, but the officials suddenly couldn’t see him.

After the Packers scored 17 straight points, the Bears found themselves down by 10. The way they were playing it could have been 100. They kept on grinding, however. They thought they had a touchdown when Khalil Herbert ran it in from 16 yards away, but there was a holding call against them.

The Bears kept at it and scored again, cutting the deficit to just 3 with 8:44 left. Rodgers had another trick up his sleeve, though.

Rodgers connected with Davante Adams for a 41-yard completion. Then, with the ball on the Bears’ 6, he outran Chicago’s defense and got the touchdown.

As he got up, he got into it with the fans. The microphone picked it up.

“I have owned you all my f***ing life. I own you. still own you” is what he yelled at the crowd. Yes, it caused a big stir, especially among Bears fans. Here’s the thing, though — he was not wrong.

When a man has 22 wins against you and now has 57 touchdowns against just 10 interceptions, he pretty much owns you. In fact, he might own the Bears more than the McCaskey family does.

Bears fans were up in arms, but why? If you want him to shut up then beat him more than once every four years.
