With the NFL’s 100th season officially kicking off this Thursday, it was only fitting that the folks at NBC Sports got Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre and Bill Swerski’s Superfans together to discuss the historical rivalry between the Packers and Chicago Bears, or Da Bears, if you will. While Bill Swerski’s recollection of past events can be described as shaky at best, the segment has us instantly looking for old clips of the popular Saturday Night Live sketch, featuring the late Chris Farley.
Is this all a ploy to keep people from remembering how disastrous the Bears’ season was last year (*cough* Cody Parkey *cough*)? Or is this the Bears just falling back on the fan-favorite segment, which only narrowly beats out the Super Bowl Shuffle? We think a majority of fans will agree this is the latter, but for any fans of the Lions, Vikings, or Packers, they may go with the former. Either way, we hope the fans get a kick out of it. We’re patiently awaiting the review from former Chicago Bear and FCFL Co-Founder, Ray Austin!
