One guess what's on these panelists' minds. If you said "Discount Double Check," you're partly right.

1. Why is Bears-Packers "personal" for Brandon Marshall ?
Phil Thompson: He meant "personals": "NFL WR seeks husky Packers gal/clogger. Must be checked for worms."
Tracy Swartz: He wants to get them 'backs.
Alex Quigley: They killed his partner. Now he wants payback. Brandon Marshall stars in ... "4th-AND-REVENGE!"
Jimmy Greenfield: He's hoping to prove to Green Bay he's worth taking a chance on when he files for free agency.
Bag Boy: Personally, he and Jay Cutler are the only Bears on offense worth keeping.
2. The Bears can beat Green Bay if they ...
Phil Thompson: ... play it safe -- no turnovers! They're up a TD on the Vikings without those picks.
Tracy Swartz: ... choose to, rather than pick to.
Alex Quigley: ... hit Aaron Rodgers early and often. Start in the parking lot, if possible.
Jimmy Greenfield: ... take out Aaron Rodgers. Don't want it, hope it doesn't happen. But this is a fact.
Bag Boy: ... kidnap Aaron Rodgers? Seriously, I'm out of ideas.
3. What's your Bears-Packers tradition?
Phil Thompson: Bag Boy puts on a show for us with Lombardi and Halas puppets. But then it always gets sexual.
Tracy Swartz: I yell at my cheese before I eat it. Lots of nom calling.
Alex Quigley: Driving down the center of State Line Road with a middle finger pointed northward. I am not joking.
Jimmy Greenfield: I pretend the Bears have a chance to win, then I watch the game.
Bag Boy: Looking at the Packers QB and saying, "Boy, I wish we had that guy!"
4. What will Jay-Z say to the Bulls when they play Brooklyn on Saturday?
Phil Thompson: "Yo, D.R., pass me the Roc, then we'll go to the BK after the game -- which still needs me."
Tracy Swartz: I'm sure it will be a Bulls hit.
Alex Quigley: I bet he says "Yep!" in that upward-inflected way that he usually does, like, 37 times.
Jimmy Greenfield: "I've never heard any of Jimmy Greenfield's songs either, you tell him that."
Bag Boy: "Bad news: The Nets are still irrelevant. Good news: I'm married to Beyonce!"
5. Why is Patrick Kane hoping he doesn't have to return to Switzerland?
Phil Thompson: What, he doesn't miss Swiss? Too easy.
Tracy Swartz: He doesn't want to have be neutral during the lockout.
Alex Quigley: He was extremely disappointed when he found out "playing for Biel" didn't involve Jessica.
Jimmy Greenfield: He doesn't like their cheese or cocoa.
Bag Boy: Well, he would have enjoyed it except HIS MOM WAS THERE THE WHOLE TIME!
