Week one feels like a distant memory. The upstart Bears knocked out the Packers’ star quarterback and held a comfortable lead coming out of halftime. But once Aaron Rodgers improbably re-entered the game (*insert Undertaker gif*), it felt like another instant classic comeback was a fait accompli. Fast forward to the teams’ second matchup of the season and things look much different.
The Packers are flailing, having suffered a plethora of injuries, a string of befuddling losses, and firing their head coach. The Bears, on the other hand, have gained all the confidence they lacked in their week one collapse. They're playing championship defense and, perhaps most notably, are extremely healthy. But regardless of where these two teams are in their arcs, it all goes out the window when they play each other. Anything can happen, and it often does.
To help us prepare for yet another round of the oldest rivalry in sports, we’re pleased to welcome Larry Dyer to the show. Larry hosts the Bears Talk Underground podcast, and offers a grounded fan’s perspective on his surprising Chicago Bears.
