I'd say it's da Bears. 4+ hours from Detroit by car and if you've every gone to the games you see plenty of opposition colors at both sites. Plus they have a long history of playing games against each other since both are long lasting organizations and inthe same division in modern times. You can say the same for GB, but I feel that, especially recently, most Detroit fans don't really Hate GB. There's kind of an awe/jealous factor of Favre.
The Lions records against both is remarkably similar -
61-83-5 vs Chicago
63-78-7 vs GB

I know up here in the North it's the Pack. Mainly because all us Lions fans can't understand how the heck the U.P. puts so much support into them. You can obviously route for whoever you want, but I don't think they know they're part of Michigan, and should show a little respect towards their home teams. I swear to God they think they came from Wisconsin. All of them!!! The U.P. has to be the strangest place I earth. I think we should quarantine the place and send in scientist to study those people. ;-D

Being a Lions fan for the last 35 years i would say without a doubt its INJURIES. We can never beat them. Then i would say the Bears.
