The Sunday session at Soldier Field had a lot of moments that got fans excited. It was one of those days when the offense was at its best. The team excelled in the red zone, with QB Justin Fields finding touchdown passes with TE Cole Kmet and WR Chase Claypool. But the Bears have a concern regarding their defensive line. Half of their defensive starters did not take part in the padded practice on Sunday. Adding salt to the wounds, safety Eddie Jackson also took to the sidelines to watch the rest of the practice after he left the field, appearing to have injured himself. But this was not the only topic of discussion for fans of the Chicago Bears. 

In a tweet going viral online, we see a photographic comparison of the Bears family fest session along with that of the Green Bay Packers. In the photos, the Packers stadium looks packed, with fireworks and lights adding to the beauty of Lambeau Field. On the other hand, the stands at Soldier Field look empty, as only a handful of fans attended the Sunday open practice session of the team. And the photo looks gloomier because of clouds overshadowing the stadium and nearby infrastructure.

Fans of the Bears come out in defense 

The number of attendees for the Chicago Bears open practice is comparatively lower than that of the Packers according to the photos. But fans of the Bears took to the comments section to defend their team and give reasons for the low attendance on Sunday.

One fan stated that the bad weather conditions led to a few people attending the Sunday session, “Thunderstorms can put a real damper on outdoor activities.”

Some fans pointed out that since Lollapalooza, a big music festival is going on, hence the attendance for the Bears’ family fest is low

You do know that half of the city is at Lollapalooza all weekend right?”

“Lollapalooza was the same time as family fest my brother in Christ”

While these fans went on to talk about how the city of Chicago has a lot of activities compared to Green Bay

“What else is even there to do in Green Bay😂”
