The Chicago Bears open the regular season on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers and it is a game that has become polarizing among the fanbase.
The Packers are opening the season with Jordan Love as their starting quarterback and for the first time since the 1990s, there is uncertainty for Green Bay at the quarterback position. Meanwhile, Justin Fields is entering his third season in the NFL and there is pressure for Fields to firmly cement himself as the franchise quarterback moving forward.
There is a usual sense of nonsense originating from Bears fans in regard to the Packers but it has reached new levels of insanity in reference to Love.
Love is living rent-free in the minds of Bears fans and that is just the sign of a fanbase that is missing the point.
Carmen Vitali set Bears’ Twitter ablaze on Thursday when she mentioned that Love will be a future Hall of Famer.
Chicago Bears fans have become annoying with their obsession with Jordan Love.
Bears fans, of course, got so triggered by these remarks that they had to cry about it on Twitter.
The one ask of Bears fans as the season is about to start is to be better.
Love should not take up the space in Bears fans’ heads that he currently is. In Cincinnati, do you think their fans care about what happens with Lamar Jackson? No, because they have Joe Burrow as their quarterback.
If Fields turns out to be the quarterback that many are expecting him to be by the time the season is over, then it won’t matter how Love turns out.
To that end, Bears fans, be better because this fanbase routinely falls for the banana in the tailpipe. There is no reason for any Bears fan to be triggered by Love or the hot takes of a reporter on a show that is about generating reactions through hot takes.
If Love turns out to be a Hall of Famer, great, but that is not a determination that can be made at this time. For that reason, stop letting a quarterback who is currently an unknown entity waste so much of your time.
