Former Packers QB delivered mic-drop response after Bears fan tried to insult him

Kurt Benkert no longer plays for the Green Bay Packers, but he is still handing losses to the Chicago Bears.

Benkert spent time in Green Bay as the third-string quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love. That's some quarterback room to be a part of. Away from the NFL, Benkert has built a career as a competitive gamer.

He provides fascinating insight to Packers fans, having spent time playing with Rodgers and Love and working under Matt LaFleur.

And Benkert can deliver a mic-drop moment when a Bears fan calls him out.

Former Packers QB Kurt Benkert dunks on Bears fan who tried to insult him

Bears fans weren't happy with Benkert after he said Caleb Williams—projected by many to go first overall to Chicago—isn't his QB1 in this year's draft class.

One such unhappy user on X (formerly Twitter) is appropriately named "Caleb Williams Fan Club." He took a shot at Benkert, writing: "Not to mention [Benkert] has fewer rushing yards than us fans."

It's true. Benkert has -1 career rushing yards. But as he explained in his response, there's a good reason for that.

Mic. Drop.

Yes, Benkert has negative rushing yards in his career, but that's because he was taking kneel-downs against the Bears.

And there's a great story behind it. The win came in Week 14 of the 2021 season. It was the only game of Benkert's career that he was active. Rodgers realized this and asked coach Matt LaFleur to let Benkert take the victory snaps, to which LaFleur agreed. It was an incredible gesture from Rodgers to give Benkert his first NFL regular-season snaps.

He played two career snaps. Both were at Lambeau Field while kneeling out a victory over the Bears. It doesn't get any better than that.

The Bears haven't beaten the Packers for over half a decade, but it doesn't stop their fans from talking trash. They should at least do their research before mocking a former player.
