I pity that team. They're traveling to the White House to shake hands with our worst President since Jimmy Carter. What a bummer!

Yeah, if it was me I'd take a pass.

The Packers gave President Obama one share of Packers stock and he replied that since he was now a part owner, he'd trade Aaron Rodgers to the Bears.

You ACTUALLY think anyone, including the president, would want Cutler over Rodgers? Be serious, Rodgers is WAY better than Cutler, in every aspect of the game.

I'm a Bears fan and I'll admit that Rodgers is superior to Cutler. Common sense tells you that.
