Im still digging up more info(off Wikipedia) but here's how the oldest rivalry in pro football matches up

Series Record:
88-79-6 CHI
GB has 1 game win streak and has won last 6 of 10

Only met once in postseason, CHI won

Packers have 12 Championships
Bears have 9

Packers have 8 Conference Championships
Bears have 4

Packers have 12 Divisional Championships
Bears have 17

The last 6 Divisional Championships have been won by GB and CHI, 3 each

Best Wins for each team:
Bears 14, Packers 13 (November 7 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/November_7), 1999 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1999)) – In their first game since the passing of legendary running back (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Running_back) Walter Payton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Payton), the Bears defeated the Packers for the first time since 1993 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1993_NFL_season) on a blocked field goal by defensive tackle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defensive_tackle) Bryan Robinson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bryan_Robinson). In a somber day at Lambeau Field (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambeau_Field), some people believed that the block was a miracle as the 300 pound Robinson leaped uncharacterstically high to block the kick.

Packers 12, Bears 6 (OT) (September 7 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_7), 1980 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980)) – The Packers and the Bears were tied at 6-6 in overtime. A 32-yard pass from Lynn Dickey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynn_Dickey) to James Lofton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Lofton) helped set up a game-winning field goal attempt by Packers' kicker Chester Marcol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chester_Marcol). Bears' defender Alan Page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Page) was able to block the field goal, sending the ball straight back to Marcol. Surprised by getting the ball back, Marcol ran around the Bears defenders who were confused by the play. Marcol received a block and was able to run in for the game winning touchdown.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bears-Packers_rivalry#_note-1)

It's so rare that the Bears and Packers are good at the same time, that's why they've almost never met in the playoffs. This year might be the closest I've seen since the early Favre years.

I wish I could appreciate the Bears- Packer rivalry better. The Bears have simply sucked too much during the course of my lifetime to realize how big it actually is. However, it is starting to look like it could become interesting once again.
The Packers- Vikings is much more important to me 1.) Because I hate the damn Vikings 100,000,000 times more than the Bears and 2.) they have actually fielded some teams that can attempt to compete with Lord Favre over the years. Brett Favre has absolutely piss-pounded the bears during his career. Man, he's sexy.

Damn Vikings

I laugh at the Packer-Bear rivalry.

The only rivalry in Minnesota is with the Packers and Badgers.

It creates tension between husbands and wives, friends, co-workers, etc.

It's like the Yankees and Red Sox.
