It’s Rivalry Week here at SB Nation, and when it comes to most of us Chicago Bears’ fans, there’s only one team that receives our ire and disgust on a regular basis, the Green Bay Packers. The Bears vs Packers rivalry is the oldest in the NFL, these two teams have won more NFL Championships than any other franchise, and they have more Hall of Famers than any other franchise as well.
The rivalry runs deep between Chicago and Green Bay, and while the Bears held the edge in the series from day one through the 1980s, from the 1990s to today — the Favre/Rodgers era — the Pack have had the upper hand.
Even with the rivalry one-sided, the Packers are still our number one rival.
It would be logical to assume that the other two NFC North teams, the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions, are rivals two and three, but when I threw the following poll up on Twitter I was surprised that Other nearly won the vote.
#Bears' fans, besides the Packers, which team do you despise the most?— Windy City Gridiron (@WCGridiron) June 29, 2020
I suppose “rival” and “team you despise” are different things, so if we took the NFC North completely off the table, which team can’t you stand?
Bears’ fans, which non divisional team do you despise the most?

Regardless of the team you vote for, be sure to give us your reason for hating them in the comment section. Also, if you go with Other, be sure to let us know that team in our comment section as well.
