Green Bay Packers. Chicago Bears.
Coming up on Sunday night. As Bart Scott once said, “Can’t wait!”
That can’t quite get here soon enough. In the meantime, we should remember the dearly-departed greatest Packer of all time.
His name is Charles Martin.
He did something that no player in today’s game would have the brass balls to do. He derailed a Chicago Bears repeat.
Those turds won the Super Bowl after the 1985 season. They were again arguably the best team in the 1986 season. Until… greatest Packer of all time, Charles Martin.
The Funky QB would be out for the remainder of the season. The Bears would go into the playoffs with Mike Tomczak and Flutie Flakes. They were 14-2 in the regular season. They lost in the divisional round to Washington, their first and only playoff game that year.
Flutie Flakes threw for a mere 134 yards. He pitched one touchdown and two picks in that playoff game.
Potential dynasty. Over. Done.
Charlie Fuckin’ Martin.
Suck it, Chicago.
