Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Kurt Benkert had some harsh words to say about the Chicago Bears on his Twitter account on Sunday when the Bears got smoked 41-10 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Chicago is 0-3 on the year and it appears as if things will not get any better at Hallas Hall.
The Bears have lost 13 consecutive games and it appears as if this drama will not end anytime soon with them. Benkert said on his Twitter account about them:
“The Bears are a complete dumpster fire and should trade Fields/give him a chance somewhere else before his career is over while they take the next 10 years to rebuild.”
Those were some interesting words by Kurt Benkert, the former Green Bay Packers quarterback, who played in one game for the franchise during the 2021 season. Calling the Chicago Bears the new Detroit Lions is very strong. However, Chicago won an NFC North title during the 2018 season and Detroit hasn’t won one in decades.
The Bears could potentially have two top-five picks in the 2024 NFL Draft and change the course of the franchise in one offseason.
Former Green Bay Packers Quarterback Kurt Benkert Should Have Rethought the Tweet He Posted
It is understandable that the Packers have owned the Bears lately in this rivalry and have beaten them nine straight times. It appears as if in Week 1 Green Bay planted a seed of doubt into Chicago’s heads for the rest of the season. The fact that Benkert called them the new Lions is a stretch.
Detroit and Green Bay both have 2-1 records so far this season and will play each other this Thursday night at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The winner of that football game will be in first place in the NFC North. However, the Detroit Lions have not been in the playoffs since 2016, when they lost in the Wild Card Round.
Also, Benkert had some interesting responses to his Tweets:
Lions feel attacked…
but that TNF matchup vs Packers is going to be hype

I completely agree. What a waste of good talent. IMO they trade him for draft capital and sign a veteran QB to play for the next 2 or 3 years while they build. Unfortunately, I don’t see that happening. I just hope he doesn’t suffer a serious injury that decides for them.

There were some interesting responses to Benkert’s Twitter page, no doubt. However, he may be on to something with the Chicago Bears being the Detroit Lions for the moment as the laughing stock of the NFL, but will see if this tweet holds true five years from now or not by the former Green Bay Packers quarterback.
