Away from a television and need play-by-play on the Packers-Vikings game? One place to find it right now is the Chicago Bears Twitter feed, The Bears are depending on the Packers to win the game (thus, a Vikings loss) to pave their way into the NFC Playoffs for the second time in three years. Meanwhile, Adrian Peterson continues to chase Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record, which the Twitter account has not kept tabs on. The entire city of Chicago is pulling for their biggest rivals, the Packers, in a game that both of the teams competing desperately need to win. Here are some reactions from Bears fans on Twitter:   Anybody else not like getting twitter updates from @chicagobears about the #Packers chances of winning? #Bears — Spencer Harsch (@SpencerHarsch) December 30, 2012   The world is crazy when the Bears twitter account is tweeting in favor of the packers — Ashton Hammond ✌ (@A_Hammbone) December 30, 2012 The fact that the Chicago Bears twitter is tweeting the packers game. Lol. — Hannah Bankson (@Hannahh_Bankson) December 30, 2012   Its a sad day when the bears twitter page is postin packers updates, man i never wanna go through this again. — i cant see emojiis.. (@choose_b4_ulose) December 30, 2012 It’s an unsung football crime. I mean, isn’t it obvious? Tweet about your team, and your team only. Many Bears’ beat writers are also tweeting play-by-play of the game, including the Chicago Tribune’s Vaughn McClure. Bears, here’s a message for you; if your fans are looking for updates, they can get them somewhere else, or just tune into the game on FOX, as it is broadcasting almost nation-wide. Whose idea was it to start updating the division rival’s game anyways? Whoever’s idea it was, it was a bad one.
