Best All Time Professional Football Rivalry
The Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears have been at each other’s throats in the pro football arena forever! They have the strongest, longest lasting and most passionate rivalry in the NFL. The Packers and Bears have played each other more than 175 times. More than any other pair of teams. They are in the same division (NFC North) and located in close geographical proximity (neighboring states). Tensions are bound to happen.
The Bears have an advantage in head-to-head wins with 91 currently. However, lately, under Brett Favre, the Packers have been gaining ground fast. It will be interesting to see if that continues with Favre gone. Tell a Bears fan you are a Packers fan or visa versa and watch the reaction you get. First off make sure you know the person well enough that it does not turn into a physical confrontation. That is just how passionate both teams’ fans are about being considered the best.
Between the two teams combined, they have won 21 NFL Championships with 4 being Super Bowls, and have a combined total of 48 players that have been inducted into the NFL Football Hall Of Fame. Heck, I am actually happy for both of them. They both have pretty solid records singular or combined. So what is all the rivalry all about? Well, with both teams a part of the NFC North Division, they bear their menacing faces to one another twice a regular season.

Some say that the Bears – Packers rivalry fails in comparison as the best all time pro football rivalry to other NFL rivals running today. However, with the long-standing rivalry that has remained for the most part constant since 1925, even if the teams where to lighten up, I don’t see the fans following suit! The Packers and Bears fans are some of the most loyal and aggressive fans in the NFL. Go to the Packers or Bears stadium for any game and you cannot only hear the support, you can feel it.

The bottom line is that both the Chicago and Green Bay franchises have illustrious histories; have played each other more than any other two teams; and both continue to be powerhouse teams in the rough and tumble NFC North.
Why wouldn’t we pick the Packers vs Bears rivalry as the best all-time professional football rivalry? What do you think?
