Bears-Packers. Steelers-Ravens. Etc. Etc.

There are plenty of rivalries among teams in the NFL. Which ones are the best among specific persons? That’s Friday’s question of the day on PFT Live.

It can be player against player, player against coach, coach against coach. I think you get the point.

Chris Simms joins us in studio for two hours, and we’ll play the full Skype interview with Ravens receiver Jeremy Maclin. It all starts at 6:00 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Radio and moves to NBCSN at 7:00 a.m. ET.

    Ouch Chris Simms? It’s apt that you ask the question of pleaser-player rivalries because you can go right a head and ask ole Chris Simms what his overall beef is with Tom Brady. Hearing that guy justify why he clearly hates Brady is sad

    Vikings – Packers.

    There’s other rivalries but not as old as Vikes/Pack and none so close every year.

    LMFAO for the bears reference tho. Needed a good laugh

    Bears-Packers? Did you write this article in the 1980s?

    Aaron Rodgers vs his inner self is the NFLs best rivalry. When he goes into that 4 game slump every year dealing with inner issues and comes works his way out of it – it’s a thing of beauty. To bed Ted Thompson can’t build a viable defense. One of the great tragedies of our time.

    It’s kind of low-key since nobody watches Texans/Jaguars games except Texans/Jaguars fans, but DeAndre Hopkins and Jalen Ramsey basically beat the snot out of each other last year. And it was great.

    Tailgating fans vs empty kegs?

    Rob Ryan vs salad bars?

    Roger Goodell vs everyone?

    Patriots versus the lying, corrupt Roger Goodell.

    I miss the annual Brady v manning so many great clashes

  10. leroyquimby says: Jun 16, 2017 7:08 AM

    As an Eagle fan Jon Runyan-Michael Strahan was pretty good. As was Buddy Ryan-Jimmy Johnson as ones I got to watch intensely.

  11. cowpiesnotcowboys says: Jun 16, 2017 7:16 AM

    Jason Garrett vs. a wet paper bag.
    Cowboys vs. law enforcement.

  12. rekroot says: Jun 16, 2017 7:31 AM

    Patriots against the spread.

  13. theandy59 says: Jun 16, 2017 7:36 AM

    Patriots vs Flavor of the Week. Colts, Steelers, Ravens, Jets and Bronco’s have all had a turn in the AFC. You can add The Giants and Seahawks, but they don’t play them often enough.

  14. RandyinRoxbury says: Jun 16, 2017 7:42 AM

    It has to be Bengals versus themselves.

  15. purplepride11 says: Jun 16, 2017 7:43 AM

    Eddie lacy vs the golden corral.


  16. aj66shanghai says: Jun 16, 2017 7:47 AM

    Easy answer is Odell Beckham and Josh Norman.

    Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson, though they don’t face off.

    Brock Osweiler vs Paxton Lynch, I’m sure they keep tabs on each other

    Adrian Peterson vs Marshawn Lynch, for this season they will be competing against each other’s stats as well as Father Time/media opinions

    Russell Wilson vs Andrew Luck

    All four QBs in NFC South

    Jeff Reed vs hand dryer
    Hines Ward vs Ed Reed
    Andre Johnson vs Courtland Finnegan

    Are there any amongst current players?

    Josh Norman vs any WR in the NFC doesn’t really count b/c he’s not that good.

  19. woodbridgekid73 says: Jun 16, 2017 7:56 AM

    Colin Kaepernick vs. the Founding Fathers

  20. gerard33 says: Jun 16, 2017 8:23 AM

    Raiders Chiefs is coming back in a BIG way.

  21. whodey420 says: Jun 16, 2017 8:24 AM

    Bengals vs Steelers You KNOW someone is going on IR after their game.

  22. billbrasky72 says: Jun 16, 2017 8:26 AM

    Odell Beckham vs the kicking net.

  23. irishgary says: Jun 16, 2017 8:55 AM

    So funny to see how the Vikings are so desperate to have a rivalry with the Packers.

    Bears – Packers have been going at it a long time, great rivalry

  24. teal379 says: Jun 16, 2017 9:14 AM

    Jay Cutler vs his own receivers

  25. wafflestomp says: Jun 16, 2017 10:43 AM

    I still find it hilarious that Barney fans feel their team has any kind of rivalry with the Packers. (3 wins in their last 15 attempts. skoLOL!)
    It is never going to happen.
    Seriously, go hit up the Lions or something.

    Green Bay’s true rivals, always has been and always will always be, the Chicago Bears.
    Between these two great franchises, you can always throw out team records.
    Two great fan bases who truly hate each other, but also have a healthy amount of respect for one another.
    Great history, great games, heavyweight Titans of the NFL.

    Other truly great NFL rivals:
    Randy Moss vs. the Vikings caterer
    Adrian Peterson vs. his son.
    Teddy Bridgewater vs. his orthopedic surgeon.

    Dallas vs. the rest of the NFC East

  27. The Phantom Stranger says: Jun 16, 2017 12:39 PM

    Aaron Rodgers vs. his teammates.
