When Brett Favre‘s long-time agent, Bus Cook, was asked which game would be best game for Brett’s number retirement ceremony at Lambeau Field, he smiled and said “The best game would be the Bears”.

Of course, this was in reference to numbers on the field that Favre has put up against the Chicago Bears, and rightly so. Brett has more touchdown passes (60) and interceptions (42) against the Bears than any other team, and more wins (23) against the Bears than all but one team (he beat the Detroit Lions 26 times).

Favre’s No. 4 will go up on the Lambeau Field façade on Nov. 26, when the Green Bay Packers host the Chicago Bears in a Thanksgiving night game.
