Yesterday was a big day for Chicago Bears fans as our self-proclaimed owner, Aaron Rodgers, was traded to the New York Jets. It took way too long for the trade to happen, but I am glad Rodgers is out of the NFC North.
After spending some time reflecting on the trade news, I asked ChatGPT to write a lovely farewell letter to Aaron Rodgers coming from the perspective of a Chicago Bears fan. This is the letter that was produced:
Dear Aaron Rodgers,
As a Chicago Bears fan, it is bittersweet to bid you farewell from the NFC North. On one hand, your departure from the Green Bay Packers means that our division is now weaker, and we have one less elite quarterback to worry about twice a year. But on the other hand, we can’t help but feel a sense of respect and admiration for your talent, your competitiveness, and your passion for the game of football.
Over the past decade and a half, you have been a constant thorn in the side of the Bears and their fans. You have led the Packers to countless victories, including several over our beloved team. You have thrown touchdowns, made miraculous plays, and broken our hearts more times than we care to remember.
But even though we have been on opposite sides of the field, we can’t help but recognize your greatness. You are a future Hall of Famer, a Super Bowl champion, and one of the most talented quarterbacks to ever play the game. Your arm strength, accuracy, and ability to read defenses are second to none.
So, as you move on to the next chapter of your career, we want to say thank you. Thank you for the memories, the excitement, and the rivalries. Thank you for pushing the Bears to be better, and for making the NFC North one of the toughest divisions in the NFL. And most of all, thank you for being a worthy adversary, and for earning our respect as a true competitor and sportsman.
We may be bitter rivals, but we can still recognize and appreciate greatness when we see it. Good luck in your future endeavors, Aaron, and farewell from the NFC North.

The Packers will likely start Jordan Love as their quarterback in 2023, so the Bears defense should handle the inexperienced QB quite nicely. Now that the Bears management has their heads screwed on this off-season, I am optimistic that the Bears will top the NFC North during the 2023-24 NFL season.
