Through just the first four games of his Chicago Bears career, Defensive Player of the Year candidate Khalil Mack has already made his name known in the Windy City.
Seen as the face of the franchise, Mack is taking a liking to the city in a big way. Sure, it helps that he’s put up five sacks and four forced fumbles through the first quarter of the season. But Mack’s presence on the Bears has changed the entire dynamic for this long-downtrodden franchise.
Meanwhile, Mack’s former stomping grounds of Oakland isn’t in anywhere near the same situation. On the verge of losing their Raiders to Las Vegas, fans in Northern California have not taken a liking to Jon Gruden trading Mack. And for his part, Gruden hasn’t done himself any favors with some absolutely ridiculous quotes.
In talking about Bears fans and their passion for football, Mack himself pretty much threw a parting shot in the direction of Raider Nation. He did so without even mentioning the Silver and Black faithful.
