    I'm sure this will be an overwhelming "NO", but I want our most heated rivalry to be against 2 teams that are actually good. As an example, say Aaron Rodgers gets injured, and they go 8-8 and get swept by us, and lose the playoffs, I feel that would cheapen being the NFCN champion. If we can't beat them, we don't deserve to win, and if we beat them as a scrub team, it doesn't make it nearly as impressive.

    Yes, I know the '85 packers sucked, but, I don't feel that particular case means anything, because, even if they went 14-2, you KNOW those 2 losses would still have been to us.

    I agree with you Henry.
    Playoff games are nice, but there is a purpose for those games.
    I'd rather compete and have rivalries with the best teams in the league because that is where you want to find consistent success.

    Oh, I absolutely agree. It wasn't all that long ago that our Division was the laughing stock of the league; hell, the whole NFC was. Now the worm has turned and the NFC is moving ahead, and the North is among the best. I much prefer being a contender in a good division as opposed to walking away with a crown from a perennial weak division.

    I honestly thought no one would see it the same way I do. I'm glad to see I was wrong. Hell, I'd prefer a 15-1 Bears team and a 14-2 Packers team every year(or the other way around, as long as we beat them fair and square), with a meeting in the NFC Championship deciding the winner. I even respect Adrian Peterson(he's the closest this league has to Walter Payton) enough that I would prefer they make the playoffs along with us.

    The better they are, the better the game. I love when the rivalry is a rivalry when both teams are good. If its one sided all the time (90s) it's not much of a rivalry is it?

    As long as they and the Pack are 0-2 against us, lol. The Lions can go 0-16 for all I care, at least until they fire forest gregg, er I mean Jim Schwartz and that "boy named suh"

    Having strong divisional foes is a blessing. If you want to BE the best, then you need to be able to BEAT the best. You go into the playoffs a stronger contender that way. This season is a good example. After we sweep the Packers this year, we'll be battle-hardened and ready to make a Super Bowl run - and win :-)
