CHICAGO (WLS) — Football Sundays have returned!
Ashley Merchant, a devoted Chicago Bears fan, expressed her excitement about her first tailgate experience saying, “This is my first tailgate, and they’re going very much out. The weather is so good. Glad it’s not football weather yet. It’s not snowing or raining yet.”
Soldier Field was filled with enthusiastic Bears fans ready to witness the long-awaited matchup against their rivals, the Green Bay Packers. The atmosphere was perfect, and the spirits were high, anticipating a victory.
John Eifler, a Bears fan, shared his excitement about the game, saying, “We’ve been waiting for this game for a long time, and it always means a little something extra when the season starts, when factors bear, so it’s been a long time coming in. We’re really excited.”
The Packers were focused on rebuilding after Aaron Rodgers’ departure to the New York Jets.
Jack Cammack, a Bears fan, optimistically stated, “Hopefully, you know, the Rodgers curse is over with. So, we got a brand new tradition without Rodgers.”
Bears fans have high hopes for a successful season.
Brian Edmond, another passionate Bears fan, eagerly expressed, “Gonna put it up there as far as the board, gets the touchdown zone and go do it. I can’t wait for that again. This is the beginning of the year for me.”
Unfortunately, the Bears suffered a 38-20 defeat against the Packers on Sunday, disappointing the fans.
Joe Vazi, a Bears fan, expressed his discontent, saying, “Same year, same Bears. I’m upset. I’m not happy.”
For Casey Scalise, a season ticket holder, it was a tough start to the season.
Scalise, a devoted Bears fan, admitted, “I’ve got a Bears tattoo on my leg. I grew up, loving the Bears. Bears are all I care about. It’s tough. It’s tough.”
The Bears are aiming for significant improvements in their second year under coach Matt Eberflus. Quarterbacks Jordan Love and Justin Fields had the opportunity to prove themselves on Sunday.
Robert Quiroz, a Bears fan, praised Fields, saying, “Give ’em his time, cause he’s gonna do what he’s gotta do. You run. You play the ball. You do what you do, but don’t be afraid. Go at it. You gotta do what you gotta do. You gotta run it. There’s no guys there. Gotta take the time to make it happen. And, that’s what we love about Fields. He’s awesome.”
In his third season, Fields, the former Ohio State star, needs to demonstrate his abilities as a passer and meet the expectations of the Bears.
Cammack added, “Gotta throw more passes than running. Fields can run as much as he wants, but I’d rather the same person passes, receiving, which would be great.”
Despite the loss, some fans remain optimistic about Fields’ potential this season.
Steve and Debbie Cole, Bears fans, emphasized Fields’ importance, stating, “I think that Justin Fields has not lived up to his expectations, and this is his year. He has to perform. He’s not a running back. We need a running back that can actually run.”
Sunday marked the ninth consecutive victory for the Packers over the Bears.
Anjee Glorioso, a loyal Bears fan, expressed her disappointment, saying, “You know, I’m still hanging on. Bears-Packers game is always one for the books. And, I was hoping without Aaron Rodgers saying he owned us, that we would own them today.”
Coy DePratt, a Packers fan, commented, “I thought it’d be a mediocre team. I still think the Bears got beat up by a mediocre team, which is too bad.”
