Lance Briggs believes Chicago Bears is the best team
Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs has said that the Chicago Bears “definitely could be” the best team that he has played on after a lot of changes that happened in the offseason that made expectation on the team soar.
With a lot of acquisitions in the offseason which was triggered by a disappointing 8-8 finish, the Bears have a lot to look forward to this season under head coach Lovie Smith.
As Jay Cutler unraveled last year, Matt Forte suffered a season-ending injury which shot down their playoff contention after reaching the NFC title game the previous year. This event caused general manager Jerry Angelo to be replaced by Phil Emery who started reshaping the team.
Acquired from the Miami Dolphins in the offseason was Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall, someone Cutler knows very well when they played together with the Denver Broncos. The Bears also acquired quarterback Jason Campbell and running back Michael Bush. They also drafted Shea McClellin in the hopes of further strengthening their defensive line.
With these roster movement in the offseason, Briggs only has this to say: “We’re playing the best football we’ve played.”
The Chicago Bears started playing as an independent team in 1919 known as the Decatur Staleys; they then became a charter member of the National Football League when it was founded. The move to Chicago was made in 1921 and they became known as the Chicago Staleys for a year before changing their name to Chicago Bears the following year.
The Bears is one of the winningest teams in the NFL, amassing eight championships in the pre-merger era. Until now they are still regular playoff contenders in the NFL. Two rivalries with the Bears stand out, Bears-Cardinals and Bears-Packers. Get your tickets to these exciting games here on this site.
