Chicago Bears get flagged for late hit on Aaron Rodgers that wasn't a late hit (GIF)

The NFC North border battle that is raging in Chicago between the Bears and Packers is for all the marbles in the division, but that doesn’t mean that things are going smoothly for anyone. Aaron Rodgers has returned to the lineup but he’s played a sloppy first had so far, but not as sloppy as the officiating so far in the game.

Rodgers is coming back from a broken collarbone — perhaps too soon — and it’s hard to think that this isn’t factoring into the officiating of the game, especially after Bears defensive end Shea McClellin was called for a late hit that in no way shape or form appeared to be a late or illegal hit.

Fans watching the game were in unison in calling out the bad call, well at least the Bears fans were.

What say you, was it a bad call by officials protecting Rodgers or are Bears fans just making a big deal out of nothing?
