Bears Twitter reacts to Aaron Rodgers’ decision to leave the Packers
The nightmare is finally over for Bears fans.
During an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, quarterback Aaron Rodgers announced that he intends to leave the Packers and play for the Jets.
“Since Friday, my intention was to play and play for the New York Jets,” Rodgers said.
Per Rodgers, the trade has been in place since Friday. Now, it’s about working out compensation.
After three decades of facing the likes of Brett Favre and Rodgers, Bears fans can rest easy. After back-to-back Hall of Fame quarterbacks, they’re now set to face Jordan Love (at least for 2023), which is a welcome reprieve.
As you can imagine, this is a day of celebration for Bears fans, who won’t have to worry about facing Rodgers twice a year. Now, Chicago has a chance to make a run at the NFC North, where the division is wide open.
Here’s how Twitter is reacting to the news that Rodgers isn’t returning to the Packers:

Per Aaron Rodgers on @PatMcAfeeShow, he has decided to play for the New York Jets in 2023.
The Green Bay Packers have moved on.
The misery is over for Chicago Bears fans.

I have been alive for 22, almost 23 years.
As a #Bears fan, Aaron Rodgers has given me a handful of headaches and heartbreaks.
Today, that finally comes to an end, and it’s hard to believe.

I have zero sympathy for any Jets fan rooting or cheering on Aaron Rodgers being traded to NY. When this blows up on them, and it will, I have not a single (expletive deleted) to give to/for them. Not one. Nor do I have any to give to Packers fans, because Packers fans.

On the @PatMcAfeeShow, Aaron Rodgers has announced that he has made his decision to play for the New York Jets.
The holdup is the compensation that the Packers will receive from the Jets.

So Aaron Rodgers last game as a member of the Packers is losing a ‘win or go home’ game against the Lions.

Lame. I wanted to see Rodgers wallow in GB, Packers hamstrung by his albatross contract, the Bears finally put it together behind Fields and absolutely hand it to them before AR crawls to retirement w/his 1 ring. Instead, he's scampering to NY before the Bears can embarrass him. https://t.co/CewVrMvi2Y

@BarstoolBigCat and Bears fans have been praying for times like this ever since Rodgers has entered the league.

Rodgers to the JETS makes me happy for 2 reasons…
1) No longer in the NFC North. Bears go from worst to first.
2) @garyvee finally has a QB and solid chance of getting the job done. Rodgers -> Wilson is gonna be scary 🤯
