BEARS VS PACKERS. How Well Do You Know Your Team?
Bring it on! The Bears once again take on The Packers this Sunday at Soldier Field. How well do you know your teams? Let's find out.There is no other rivalry like this rivalry between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers of the National Football League. The two clubs have won a combined 22 NFL championships (including 5 Super Bowls) and have 48 members in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The rivalry began in 1921 and is the league's most played, with 188 regular-season and post-season games.
The rivalry between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers began innocently on a mild November Sunday afternoon at Chicago's Wrigley Field (then called Cubs Park) in 1921.
The Bears, then named the Staleys and one of the league's founding teams, were ready to show the ropes to the Packers, who were in their inaugural NFL season (although they had existed as a pro football club since 1919).
Chicago pounded the Packers 20-0, and, for extra measure, Staleys guard John (Tarzan) Taylor threw a sucker punch that broke the nose of Packers tackle Howard (Cub) Buck. It was the opening bell in the start of a beautiful relationship.
For the past 80 years, the Bears-Packers series has had all the bitterness, intensity, and animosity normally associated with rivalries.
Whatever the reason, the Bears against the Packers is professional football. Without it, some say the NFL never would have developed the way it did.
Go (Insert the team of your choice here)! No matter who wins, it's what makes being a Stateline resident fun.
