The Green Bay Packers made sure on Sunday that the Chicago Bears would not have an ideal start to the season. This is after an Aaron Rodgers-less, Jordan Love-led Green Bay side defeated Chicago 38-20 in the latest chapter of their storied rivalry. To make matters worse for the Bears, they suffered the loss in front of their home crowd at Soldier Field.
The loss to Green Bay appears to have sent the Bears reeling in terms of their recent personnel decisions.
Chicago Bears Suffer Disappointing Week 1 Loss to Green Bay Packers
Justin Fields was supposed to have a big game in this one, but the Chicago quarterback finished with just 24-of-37 completed passes for 216 yards. He had one touchdown and one interception in a performance that you can’t really say was horrible. However, it clearly wasn’t enough to lead the Bears to victory.
It was Jordan Love who stole the show in this one, with the 23-year-old proving to everyone that he deserves his spot as Green Bay’s new QB1. Love outshone his Chicago counterpart in their first meeting of the season, which is something not too many folks out there expected to hear after Week 1.
Unfortunately for Bears fans, this is now their 10th straight loss to Green Bay.
Chicago Bears Re-Sign LB Dylan Cole 48 Hours After Dropping Him
The loss to the Packers seems to have caused a little bit of panic within the Bears front office. This is after the team decided to re-sign veteran linebacker Dylan Cole just 48 hours after deciding to terminate his contract.
Cole returned to practice for the Bears for the first time on Friday after spending multiple weeks on the sidelines due to a lingering hamstring injury. He was actually listed as questionable for the Packers game.
Cole didn’t even make it until Sunday, though, with Chicago opting to waive him on Saturday. You can only wonder how he must have felt after watching the Packers dominate the Bears.
And then on Monday, after failing to find a replacement for the 29-year-old former Missouri State standout, Chicago decided to re-sign Cole to their 53-man roster. To say that he’s had a pretty interesting past few days would probably be an understatement.
