GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Even if Aaron Rodgers wanted to muster up some genuine hatred for the Chicago Bears this week, Jay Cutler has made it difficult to do so.
When Rodgers' younger brother, Jordan, was thinking about going to Vanderbilt to play football, Rodgers called on Cutler for advice. Cutler, who played at Vanderbilt, was more than happy to help.
There was a time not so long ago that Bears and Packers players genuinely disliked each other. Those feelings haven't really faded between the two team's fan bases, and some of those fans might be disappointed to hear that today's Bears and Packers -- gasp! -- genuinely like and respect each other.
