Week 6 Pre-Gamin’: BEARS vs. PACKERS (Noon CT) Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Bears

Hearing Eddie Goldman discuss his missing the game last year really struck a chord with me.

There was something in his voice that was expressing a sense of regret for not being with his teammates. Mind you, Goldman’s exercising the opt out during a global pandemic was him doing right by himself and his family. But you can still tell something was missing when he was mentioning what it was like for him being at home.

You can check it out (in its entirety) for yourself:

All of that brings me to this Bears-Packers game.

Green Bay has been riding high for some time when these two teams square off. Aaron Rodgers’ excellence has helped the Packers take the all-time series lead. And because of Green Bay’s dominance, there have been tough times in trying to get pumped up for this series. Today shouldn’t be one of those days.

One year after not having fans, I expect the Soldier Field faithful to be in full throat. And with Justin Fields under center, there is more anticipation for one of these tilts than there has been in a few seasons. Here’s hoping it lives up to some lofty expectations.
