Rasul Douglas loves playing against the Chicago Bears. He aims to help the Green Bay Packers secure a ninth consecutive victory over their oldest rivals.
Douglas forms one of the league's top cornerback duos alongside Jaire Alexander, and together, they will see a lot of DJ Moore in Sunday's season opener.
The Packers-Bears rivalry begins a new chapter this week, with Jordan Love replacing Aaron Rodgers at quarterback in Green Bay.
It places a greater emphasis on the Packers' defense. The offense will have its struggles, so Joe Barry's unit must step up. Douglas will play a significant role.
However, while the Packers' cornerback is ready to go and excited about the new season, he doesn't fully buy into the Bears rivalry.
Packers fans will love Rasul Douglas' latest comments about the Bears
Since joining the Packers in 2021, Douglas has enjoyed nothing but victories over the Bears.
Speaking to reporters this week, Douglas gave the perfect answer when discussing the Packers' rivalry with Sunday's opponents.
"I haven't ever lost to the Bears in all my seven years. So it's not really a rivalry to me," said Douglas, per Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
Douglas has helped the Packers win all four games against the Bears over the past two seasons.
Other Packers players may agree with his comments about the rivalry. Green Bay has dominated the matchup over the past 13 years, winning 23 of 27 games, including the playoffs.
Douglas added: "It's like you're best friends with somebody, and they don't like somebody. You don't know why, you don't care. You just can't like the person because your best friend don't like them. It's kind of like that. I don't know why they don't like the Bears, and I don't care. It's just they don't like them, I don't like them."
It's the perfect insult. The Bears are so bad and uncompetitive against the Packers that Douglas doesn't even care about them. There is no hatred.
That's as embarrassing as it could possibly get for the Bears. Douglas isn't wrong, either. The rivalry has been one-sided for a long time. An argument can be made that the Packers' rivalry with the Minnesota Vikings is more intense.
Maybe things will change without Rodgers. It should make for a fascinating matchup in Week 1.
