What are the Packers thinking? (Free advice from a Bears fan)

The greatest quarterback of the era wants to play on your team, so what should you do? Hmmm.

Well, if you're the Green Bay Packers you tell him, "No thanks."

I suppose a 13-3 record, winning the division and having a quarterback with the second or third highest quarterback rating isn't enough. Aaron Rodgers, an unproven career back-up... yeah much better.

Remember the pain of the Don Majkowski years? I guess not. Well, your neighbors to the south have been living a similar nightmare for a couple decades and the terror is something we deal with 16 Sundays a year, every year. So let me clue you in...

Helloooo... this is a no-brainer, folks. If the guy who built your franchise wants one more season, then you give him one more season. Period. So what if he's a little quirky: genius has its price. Nobody ever told Einstein to get a haircut.

As for Aaron Rodgers... he'll get over it.

There, that's the last advice you'll get from this Bears fan.

(Jesus, do you people know anything but cheese and toilet paper up there?)

It will be just like when Jordan left and then won all of those titles with the Wizards...oh wait.

Actually, Jordan "retired" once after three championships, played baseball for a couple years, and then came out of retirement to win three more championships. The Wizards saga was after his second "retirement."

The great ones never go gently into that good night.
