Aaron Rodgers is perhaps the most beloved quarterback in all of football, unless you're a Chicago Bears fan.
The Bears and Packers do not simply have a dislike for one another. This rivalry goes much deeper than that.
Every Bears fan remembers shutting out Brett Favre at home, and what Packers fan would forget beating the Bears in Chicago to win the NFC Championship game just a few seasons ago?
The rivalry between these two teams goes deeper than any other rivalry in the game of football, and that is something that Marc Trestman must grasp right away.
Lovie Smith did that for quite some time. At the beginning of his tenure, he was a Packer killer, beating Green Bay almost every chance his Bears got.
As time went on, however, the power in the division shifted, and the Packers became the ones who were beating the Bears year in and year out, with no end in sight for Bears fans.
Smith made beating Green Bay one of his top priorities, and it worked for quite some time. After that, however, it became just another game to Smith, and his team played as such.
Trestman must know that these games are not taken lightly. Every fan, player, coach and even front office members circle two dates on their calendar the second the NFL releases the schedules for next season; the dates when the Bears and Packers will be going head to head that year.
There is nothing light about this rivalry, and Trestman needs to understand that, when he plays the Green Bay Packers, it won't be just another game. If he has a hard time beating Green Bay, his time in Chicago may be short lived.
On the flip side, if he figures out how to beat Mike McCarthy's Packers, and silence the fans from Wisconsin, Trestman may just find himself being praised as a hero in the city of Chicago. The choice is up to him.
