    Packers vs Bears = Best Rivalry in Sports

    Even Packer fans would have to admit that was a great game last night. The weather was the icing on the cake. Name a better rivalry if you can.

    That game was awesome. As a bears fan I was sure we were going to blow it. Just shows we needed the win and the Packers just wanted it.

    Yankees/Mets??? Huh?

    Bears/Packers may not be the best, but it is in the discussion.

    Re: Packers vs Bears = Best Rivalry in Sports

    Great Game? Or two ****** teams battling it out? I swear the only way the Packers lose that game last night was on purpose. And what was with the coin toss? Did it hit one of the bolts in Urlacher's neck?
    OK, so I'm an upset Vikings fan, but still. Noone deserves to win this division.

    Re: Packers vs Bears = Best Rivalry in Sports

    Yankees and Mets? Are you serious? They very rarely ever played each other until interconference play started...the team you are looking for is the Boston Red Sox

    Re: Packers vs Bears = Best Rivalry in Sports

    I don't know if any of you have seen the special on HBO about the OSU v Michigan rivaly but wow they truly hate each other. I thought ISU v iowa was a rivaly. We have nothing on that one.

    Re: Packers vs Bears = Best Rivalry in Sports

    It is one of the best matchups, bar none. Only recently has the Red Sox/Yankees rivalry become relevant, since before 2004, it was all Yankees. 21 titles between the two, and you win the NFC, you win the Halas trophy, you win the Super Bowl, the Lombardi. That alone tells the importance these two franchises have in the NFL.

    Re: Packers vs Bears = Best Rivalry in Sports

    yeah, that special was classic. They had an 80 year old man go off on a rant about why he hates Michigan, he gets to the end, looks straight into the camera and says "**** Michigan"

    Re: Packers vs Bears = Best Rivalry in Sports

    No doubt it's Top 3 with OSU/Michigan and Yankees/Red Sox.

    Although, unlike those, there's not as much hate involved in the rivalry. My family is split between the Packers and Bears, and we're pretty fine with it. I respect the Bears, just don't want to see the Packers lose to them. They're not like the Vikings, whom I wish every possibly bad thing that could ever happen to a football team on.

    It's a healthy rivalry, which is rare in sports.

    Re: Packers vs Bears = Best Rivalry in Sports

    It's funny how Bears and Packer fans have a mutual, although strained at times, respect for each other, but we all hate the Vikings. The Lions? It's more of a pity party with them.

    Re: Packers vs Bears = Best Rivalry in Sports

    Well, if you're talking intense hatred on both sides, then you have to go with Alabama v. Auburn. Really not even much of a discussion IMO.

    If you're talking about best rivalry based on high level of play on both sides, then I think you have to go with UNC v. Duke. One could probably make an argument for OSU v. Michigan.

    I don't think any pro sports "rivalries" come close to their college counterparts. When you insult the Vikings, you're just insulting a team I happen to root for. When you insult ISU - hey man, that's my alma mater, too. Now you're treading on thin ice.

    The hatred is reciprocal.
