Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman does not like your pro-Packers math!
The problem -- and answer -- in question. (Reddit)
Last time the Bears had the advantage in this one was a 5-1 stretch that went from 2005 through 2007 -- the last few years of Brett Favre's time with the Pack. Since 2008, when Aaron Rodgers took over, the Bears have proven to be eminently beatable when playing their Wisconsin "buddies."
So, Mr. Tillman, we advise that you take this one to the field -- "Bear Down," indeed. The chances of a Bears victory over the Packers are far from 100 percent, but perhaps you can be the first NFL player to use math homework as an inspirational device.
Booooooooo! But the worm is about to turn. This is no longer Jerry Angelo's (we're good enough) Chicago Bears. This team has an all pro QB, throwing to an all pro WR and handing off to an all pro RB. And behind those guys are the best offensive talent and depth I've seen the Bears put on the field for over 20 years.
This rivalry has always run in cycles where either team dominates the other for a few years and then they swap places. I realize that it's only on paper so far but in my opinion the team the Bears put on the field this fall should be every bit the equal of the Pack offensively and a notch or two better defensively. Even our depth matches up far better than it did two years ago when we took them to the wire before losing the NFCC Game.
It's always a battle royal between the two of them but I think the days of automatically granting the Packers the advantage are over for a while. This will be a far better Bears team than they've faced in the last two years.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap.
Honey Badger Don't Care. Honey Badger Don't Give a Shit.
I love that this was just a good humor story, and that all parties involved got a kick out of it. I have even more respect for Tillman now, ahaha
More then what you shouldve had to begin with? For shame. Peanut has been an all around class act, and does so much for the community, even while dealing with the condition of his daughter. Ive always had tons of respect for Tillman, and stories like this comes as no surprise.
