Podcast: Would losing to Packers be final straw for Pace, Nagy? originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
The Bears are preparing to play the rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football with a lot riding on the game.
In the weekly mailbag segment, JJ Stankevitz and Cam Ellis discuss if there would be implications for Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy if the Bears lose to the Packers, what their favorite Thanksgiving side dishes are and whether Colin Kaepernick could fix the Bears’ QB problems.
Later in the podcast, JJ and Cam are joined by a special guest, Kathryn Tappen of NBC Sports, to discuss her Sunday Night Football debut. They dive into what it's like covering Notre Dame and her thoughts on the lack of production from former Fighting Irish tight end Cole Kmet.
