Chicago Bears defensive end Akiem Hicks has some words before the big Sunday Night Football game with their rivals the Green Bay Packers.
“I know those guys can’t block Khalil Mack.” Akiem Hicks speaking to the Green Bay media on a conference call, on the Packers offensive line.

He then decided to say it’s not just about Green Bay, but everyone in the league.
“Can you tell how excited I am to have my new teammate?” he added.
In fact, he ended the call with this.
Word already got back to Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who apparently didn’t have much to say.
Aaron Rodgers wasn't interested in responding to the Akiem Hicks/Packers can't block Khalil Mack comment or whether he was disappointed the Packers didn't land Mack.
Said Rodgers on the first matter: “I don’t need to react to every comment that’s made…. https://t.co/YPCgBM7ndy

Rodgers shouldn’t be too worried to play the Bears, even with Mack. In 18 games vs. the Bears, Rodgers has a 14-4 record, recorded 38 touchdowns, nine interceptions and recorded a passer rating of 105.7.
That being said, having Mack in there definitely changes the dynamic of the Bears defense. I’m sure ARod will be keeping an eye on where #52 lines up on Sunday Night.
