Briggs joins Marshall in unloading on Packers
Chicago LB calls TE Finley an "idiot"
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — 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.”
