Packers’ Aaron Rodgers should get away — from the Bears — while the gettin’ is good

On the first Sunday of December in 1993, both the nascent greatness of the Packers offense and the spitting-into-the-wind futility of the Bears’ offense were on display at Soldier Field.

The visitors had a 29-10 advantage in first downs gained. They possessed the ball for a season-high 38:14. They piled up 466 yards — 402 spun off the fingertips of 24-year-old quarterback Brett Favre — to the hosts’ meager 210.

A mismatch? But of course. Three Bears intercepted Favre, two of them — Jeremy Lincoln and Mark Carrier — returning their picks for touchdowns. Dante Jones also scooped a fumble and scored.
