Reporting as Eligible, Week 1 - State of Love and Trust

The Packers won, but how much of the victory was the Packers actually being good, versus the Bears being Bears?

Several Acme Packing Company contributors have joined forces for a Packers-focused podcast: Reporting As Eligible. If you’ve ever wondered what Paul Noonan, Tyler Brooke, or Matub sound like in real life, tune in as they join JR Radcliffe of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel for discussion and banter about the Packers and whatever else is going on out there.

On a cracking new episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul, JR, and Matub discuss the tragic injury to Aaron Rodgers, what it means for the Packers, and whether it’s really the end. But they quickly move on to better things, as the Packers destroyed the Bears and they had many excellent individual performances to show for it.

Unfortunately, lingering at the back of everyone’s mind was the question of whether the Bears are really just that bad, and if this was more like another preseason game. After all, Week One lies to us every year, but there were so many good signs: The confident quarterback! The outstanding play calling! The fearsome pass rush! Sure AJ Dillon fell down a lot and the young players had a few issues, but the Packers played well, against the only opponent they had.

The guys also discuss the Falcons, why Chicagoans thought the Bears might not be terrible, the brilliance of Aaron Jones, and his limited snaps, Lukas Van Ness, Devonte Wyatt, and, of course, listener questions. The question on everyone’s mind? What is Love? Baby, don’t hurt me.
