Who is your least favorite player that isn’t a Packer?

Check out our latest WCG Chicago Bears offseason discussion topic.

Asking a Chicago Bears fan to give their least favorite player is sure to garner a bunch of different responses, but one team would likely dominate the answers, the Green Bay Packers. So, to save this entire thread from being a bash the Pack thread (not that there’s anything wrong with that) we wanted to eliminate them from our latest offseason roundtable topic.

Who is your least favorite opposing player, who’s not a Green Bay Packer, and why?

Check out all our responses to the prompt, and be sure to get yours in the comment section.

Lester A. Wiltfong Jr.: There really isn’t a Lion or Viking that bothers me that much, so I guess I’ll pick a player that has a history of being a jackass, and that’s the Bengals’ Vontaze Burfict. Football is a violent game, but Burfict takes it too far.

Sam Householder: I usually really dislike players that are Bear killers; the ones that always beat up on us. Luckily this year that’s kind of changed. Of course with the Packers off the table, I’ll go with Stefon Diggs of the Vikings (He has more TDs against Chicago than any other team and the second-most yards than any other team). I’ll also throw Alshon Jeffery in there. I was a big fan of his when he played here and I was totally fine with him moving on, but I think he’s gone out of his way to dump on Chicago and it’s fans when we really embraced him. It doesn’t help that he’s played well against us in his two games.

Robert Schmitz: I’m really going back and fourth with this one, there’s not a lot of NFL players I don’t like. I even kinda like Aaron Rodgers. But if I was going to pick one non-Packer to hate, it’s a tie between Kirk Cousins and Michael Crabtree. I don’t like Cousins because he’s been killing franchises and killing dreams for as long as I can remember; fair or not, when your team regresses after moving on from Case Keenum you’re gonna have a bad time. I also hate it when players talk big games and can’t back it up, so Crabtree has always annoyed me. That thing he had going with Richard Sherman in the NFC Championship Game was embarrassing.

Erik Christopher Duerrwaechter: As I said earlier, I’m not a fan of Tom Brady. However, I cannot argue against his success. And besides, he’ll go down as the most successful QB of all-time when he finally decides to call it a career.

Philip Rivers, on the other hand, is a smug character who can’t win the most important of games. Forget all the flashy stats, he’s arguably the most overrated QB in the league. Let me know when he’s actually capable of leading his team to the promised land.

A close runner up would be former Bear and current Buccaneer Chris Conte. The guy has been a jackass since the Bears cut him, always waiting for a chance to run his mouth on his former team. He didn’t receive the warmest fanfare for blowing his assignment in 2013’s finale against the Packers, I get it. But....dude, get over yourself. I totally loved the stiff arm fished out from Vance McDonald btw.

Jacob Infante: I don’t really have a player that I truly dislike, but I’m not a big fan of Matthew Stafford. Part of it comes from the fact that he plays for the Lions, and part of it comes from the fact that he’s just mediocre. His arm talent is incredible and he puts up huge numbers, but I don’t think I’ve seen someone achieve so little in terms of meaningful success with so much talent since, I don’t know, Jay Cutler?

Jeff Berckes: Ndamukong Suh is such a dirty player and approaches the game as a mercenary that I just despise watching him. The way he looks to put people out with that forearm shiver gets me mad every time.

WhiskeyRanger: Ndamukong Suh.

Obviously there’s players that have done bad things off the field that I dislike, but in terms of the player on the field, Suh’s my least favorite. He MAY have cleaned up his act somewhat of late, but dude was as dirty a player as they come. Plus, he was a Lion. That stink don’t come off.

Josh Sunderbruch: From a purely football perspective, leaving off other issues, I really dislike Philip Rivers. The anointed factor bothers me, and his attitude is out of place with his accomplishments.

Ken Mitchell: This one is dead easy, Ndamukong Ngwa Suh. No Chicago Bears fan needs an explanation as to why I (and I think we all) despise this dirtbag.

Now it’s your turn...
