Chicago Bears fans may be fed up with their team, but it sounds like the feeling is mutual. The Bears have tumbled this season since they started out looking like one of the best teams in the NFC. While they could still sneak into the postseason with a wild card berth, it’s looking less likely by the week. Earlier this week, Brian Urlacher ripped Chicago fans for booing the team during their loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Fellow linebacker Lance Briggs said he understands the passion of Bears fans, but essentially agreed with what Urlacher had to say. “I understand where he’s coming from,” Briggs said during his show on CSN Chicago. “I’ve been here a long time, too and I’ve (heard) a lot of boos. For a lot of the wrong reasons. Nobody, on any team I’ve seen, gets booed more at home than here in Chicago. “That’s also a point to the passion of the Chicago fans. Everyone is passionate, but everyone in Chicago doesn’t know how to run a football team. Everyone doesn’t know how to play professional football. It’s our job to do that.” While the Bears aren’t exactly the Jacksonville Jaguars, it has to be frustrating for fans to listen to their star players hype up games against division rivals only to fall flat on their faces. When you sign a contract to play in a place like Chicago, Boston or New York, you have to understand that the fans are going to love you when you’re winning and despise you when you’re losing. The fact that people like Urlacher and Briggs are acting surprised by that amid a stretch where they’ve lost five out of six games is getting pretty old. Helmet smack to Pro Football Talk
