The Lions, Packers and Bears have been in the same division or conference since the National Football League instituted a conference format in 1933.

The Minnesota Vikings are the most recent addition to the division having joined in 1961.

The NFC North is the oldest division in the entire NFL.

It wasn’t until the NFL split into eight divisions in 2002 that the division would be renamed the NFC North Division.

The NFC North Division boasts some of the greatest talents of the entire National Football League. 

You could make the argument that you could compose an entire NFC Pro Bowl roster from the Black and Blue Division alone.

There are certain players that, regardless of team allegiance, you take pleasure in watching. Players that give their all, leaving everything on the field, game in and game out.

You didn’t have to be a fan of the Detroit Lions when the "human highlight reel" Barry Sanders was in uniform, but you loved to see him run.

The same could be said for Michael Vick in the NFC South (Falcons) and now in the East (Eagles). There are just some players in the NFL that you just have to watch.

This is a list of five of those players that you hate to love in the NFC North.
