Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs told USA Today Sports that he was upset when Lovie Smith was fired last month. “I was upset and hurt but it’s business,” Briggs said.. “That was the decision the organization made and that’s the decision we have to live with.” This doesn’t come as a surprise since there was a report that there was a report that most of the Bears’ players were outraged when the news broke. I’ll always believe the Bears made a mistake when they fired Smith.       Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = ''+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
