Green Bay Packers safety Jaire Alexander fired a hilarious shot at Chicago Bears fans ahead of the latest installment of their rivalry game.
Playing the Bears at Lambeau Field on Sunday, Green Bay will look to avoid a 2-0 start for the first time in recent history, with Aaron Rodgers behind center. The Packers are favored by most sportsbooks by nearly 10 points, despite Chicago already having an upset this season.
Why not another?
As for Alexander, he had a bit of fun at the expense of the Bears fans. One of the NFL’s most storied franchises, Chicago has had its ups and downs of late. Jaire is just grateful he’s not one of the thousands of fans expected to cheer against him on Sunday.
“It’s fun. It’s exciting,” Alexander said per USA Today is Ryan Wood. “I always say, ‘Things could be a lot worse. I could be a Bears fan.’”

Alexander was pronounced to start the year. The newly-extended Pro Bowl safety is confident in his abilities and felt he should have shadowed Justin Jefferson more in the Packers’ Week 1 loss to the Vikings.
“All week I’ve been asking about this matchup. But it’s not about me. It’s about the team. It is not about me. If it were up to me, you know what I would do.” Alexander said after the loss, per The Athletic.
Perhaps Green Bay will use that strategy to their advantage this week against Chicago.
As for the Bears, Justin Fields and co. walked away at home against the 49ers with a dismal Week 1 win. Weather conditions made it difficult to move football from the third quarter as a monsoon turned the field in favor of the defense.
