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.''

Brandon Marshall sure is a creative thinker. The Bears wide receiver came to his press conference on Wednesday with a tiny Charlie Brown-like Christmas tree as a prop, and he used it to make a comparison. The tree only had a few branches, one ornament, and the music box below it plays the Charlie Brown theme song.
“Right now, metaphorically, our season looks like this tree right...
Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall told the media that he’s very excited for Sunday’s game against the Packers.
“This is the biggest game of my career. I’m excited about it. I’ve had this game marked since we played them last. I heard exactly what the corner — what’s the, ‘Tramon?’ — I heard exactly what he was saying after the game. Woodson, those guys...
Greg Jennings thinks Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall is a genius.
Marshall had made headlines one day earlier when he went off on the rival Green Bay Packers during his weekly media availability. But it was something Marshall said later that Jennings found brilliant: Marshall's attempt to bait the Packers into matching their cornerbacks up with him man-to-man.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It didn't take long for Brandon Marshall's comments to reach the Packers locker room Wednesday. Less than two hours after the Bears star wide receiver made several negative statements about Chicago's NFC North rival, his words became the hot topic in Green Bay.
"I don't like the Green Bay Packers," Marshall told Chicago media in a press...
Green Bay knows that Chicago's passing attack begins and ends with Brandon Marshall, which is why they will attempt to shut him down Sunday and force the other Bears wideouts to beat them.
Bears WR Brandon Marshall
The Packers-Bears rivalry has been going on for 91 years. The Bears have won 92 of those games, the Packers have won 87, and they’ve played to six ties since the rivalry began in 1921.
When the Bears named Lovie Smith head coach in 2004, he clearly stated that his team’s No.1 goal would be to beat Green Bay.
But recently, the Packers have owned the rivalry...
Brandon Marshall ran his mouth before the Chicago Bears took on the Green Bay Packers in Week 2 this season. The big wide receiver spoke about how he hoped the Packers would bring man and press coverage against him in the two rivals’ first meeting of the season.
If the Packers were to apply man and press coverage? “Good luck,” Marshall said before that game.
As it turned out...
It’s very rare that a Lovie Smith coached team has a player make national headlines with comments through the press. Then again, there has not been a player with the clout that wide receiver Brandon Marshall carries in Chicago during Smith’s nine seasons as head coach.In the Bears press conference after a light walkthrough practice at Halas Hall on Wednesday, Marshall may have...
STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES
Lance Briggs apparently does not agree with Packers tight end Jermichael Finley's assertion that the Bears defense is better off without the injured Brian Urlacher.
A day after Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley said that Chicago better without Brian Urlacher members of Bears defense responded.
“Just like a couple of years ago, I think, he (Finley) tore his ACL and the Packers were actually better without him. You know, they won the Super Bowl,” Urlacher told SiriusXM NFL Radio. “I hope we can duplicate that as well because...
