    Bears because they need to be put in their place 2 if not 3 times per season. ...specifically their fans. The way they win when they do win is very annoying as well. Punt returns, Kickoff returns, ball stripping.

    The Lions are the best divisional opponent at this time but the rivalry goes to the Bears always.

    For me it's the Vikings. Because I live in Viking-land.

    Depends on the year. Depends on what part of Wisconsin you live in, if you live in Wisconsin.

    Lions are the toughest comp

    Vikings seem to bring out the most emotion

    Bears are the go to rivalry. Doesn't matter if one is bad, it's still a tough game.

    Fun fact, the longest continuous rivalry in the nfl? Packers Lions.

    I vote Bears. Bad blood goes a long way back even though Halas did some kind things.

    In terms of what? Who we hate the most, oldest rivalry or who is likely to be our biggest competition within the division? I think the Vikings take it for who we hate the most with the Bears close if not equal to. The Bears are the oldest rivalry and a fierce one. But, I think the Lions are going to be our biggest rivals within the division this year.

    I think it's a generational thing, if you're older it's the Bears, middle it's the Vikings and newer fans the Lions because they look to be closer future competitors. Color me with the older crowd. I actually ENJOY hating the Bears and their fans.

    The Bears were my Dad's rivalry. The Vikings are mine. I have a healthy respect for the Bears, but the Vikings are the one team in the division I truly despise and loathe. The Lions, meh, who cares. 1 good season in 400 years doesn't make them rivals in my book.

    Have I mentioned lately that I think that the Bears and their fans really do suck ***? I'm not even going to offer my rationale ... I grew up in NorthEastern Wisconsin and attended my first game in 1965 at age 7. It is a birthright...my father told me so.

    Young fan, old fan, past, present, future, geography, record, threat, etc. NONE of these things dissuade from the irrefutable fact the Bears are our biggest rival...always and forever.

    The Lions and Vikings can trade places for second and third place in regard to biggest rival.

    Vikings no doubt! I live on the western WI border (What separates the cheeseheads from pinheads? The Mississippi River!) and I have little good to say about the Vikings or their loathsome fans! The first MN Favre year was hell; however, it has been blissfully peaceful and tolerable living in this area again with the demise of the Vikings in the last couple of years.

    As much as I despise the the Vikings, the sweetest game ever was when the Packers took the Halas Trophy in Chicago. In the long storied rivalry, there is nothing better than to have won at that location, that particular trophy and against that team, our longest and most fiercely fought rival!

    I grew up in the 90s, bears were irrelevent with Favre whooping them.
    Moss/Carter/John Randall/JaredAllen/Childress/Favre/Traitor Former Packers and their fans just annoy the crap out of me.
    Games usually are always close, so it's always awesome when we Blow 'em out.
    For me, I want us to really really really run up the score against the vikes whenever we get a chance.

    Bears, they have the better record over us, SOON that will change. I don't think the Lions because well they were blah for so many years, at one time I was like, eh another game with a W. Vikings make things interesting, I like the idea that they are the "new" division rivarly, but we all know that its the Bears. Who still suck.
