Bears LB Lance Briggs Says Jermichael Finley Is An Idiot For Urlacher Comment
Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, who hasn't ducked from controversy, suggested in an interview Wednesday that the Bears might be better without Brian Urlacher, Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Asked about that comment, Bears linebacker Lance Briggs had a simple response.
"He's an idiot," Briggs flatly said. "Just suit up and play ball.
"His comments aren't going to change the outcome of the game, they're not going to help him or anybody else play better. Doesn't really matter."
On Wednesday, the Packers tight end told Fox Sports Wisconsin that Urlacher is at the end of his career.
"He's playing a little slow out there," Finley told Fox Sports Wisconsin. "I don't think they're losing too much if he's out. Putting another guy in might help them a little."
Thursday morning, on his Twitter account, Finley tried to clarify his critique.
"Urlacher is a Hall of Fame player and person," Finley wrote. "I meant no disrespect to him in previous comments, I was simply trying to explain that his replacement in the lineup is a good player as well."
