|Briggs Joins Marshall In Unloading On Packers
|LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs unloaded on the Packers a day after teammate Brandon Marshall did the same thing, saying he's no fan of Green Bay and that Jermichael Finley is ``an idiot.''
The league's oldest rivals meet Sunday and they've been talking plenty of trash.
Marshall went off on Wednesday, saying he's never disliked a team as much as the Packers. Briggs backed that up a day later, saying his feelings are ``very similar.''
He really took issue with Finley for telling FOXSportsWisconsin.com the Bears might be better off with linebacker Brian Urlacher sidelined by a hamstring injury. The Packers tight end was quoted as saying Chicago is not ``losing too much if he's out.'' Briggs responded, ``He's an idiot.''
