Chicago Bears defender vows to Deal this following people

Bears defender vows in 2024 “not to lose” against an NFC North opponent.

The Bears are undoubtedly developing something unique this offseason, but they are still seen as the NFC North’s younger brother.

Chicago acquired defensive end Montez Sweat during the previous season’s trade deadline, and he’s eager to alter the storyline—especially when facing the team’s fiercest division opponent.

Sweat declared, “I’m letting you know right now, man, I’m not losing to Green Bay this year,” during an interview with former NFL edge rusher Chris Long on the “Green Light” podcast. “Man, I really can’t do this. This year, I’m not going to lose to Green Bay. There, we’ve sparked a fierce rivalry.”

Given that Sweat only faced the Packers once while he was a Bear, it’s unexpected that he already has strong feelings about winning. Nevertheless, he might still be thinking about it because he lost his one and only encounter with Green Bay in Week 18 of the previous season, 17-9.
Furthermore, it’s no secret that the Packers have dominated the rivalry for a considerable amount of time—they have won 22 of the previous 26 games, 10 straight, and 17 of the previous 20.

Sweat needs to continue where he left off in 2023 if he wants to fulfill his commitment to stop Green Bay’s hegemony. The 2019 first-round pick who just finished with a career-high 57 tackles, 12.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles is in the offseason.

It’s understandable that the 27-year-old won’t be able to succeed on his own, though, considering Chicago will have the first overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Given that the organization traded quarterback Justin Fields to the Steelers earlier in the summer, USC quarterback Caleb Williams is expected to be the chosen player.

With a ton of potential, the Bears club in 2024 will undoubtedly appear different. Will they eventually satisfy expectations or fall back into the franchise’s recent struggles?

Though Sweat is obviously certain that it will be the former, only time will tell.
