Lance Briggs says the Bears are “world championship like”

Lance Briggs AP

The Chicago Bears have spoken this offseason like a team that’s not lacking in confidence, with the latest comments coming from linebacker Lance Briggs, who says that when the lockout ends, the Bears will have a championship-caliber team.

In a video interview with the Chicago Tribune, Briggs said he thinks the Bears have the roster of a champion.

“There’s nothing normal about the lockout and not being with your team — you always want to be with your team and be preparing for the season,” Brigg said, adding that once the lockout ends the Bears will be, “Championship like — world championship like.”

Briggs’ comments come a month after his fellow Bears linebacker, Brian Urlacher, said the Bears, not the Packers, are the best team in the NFC. The Bears’ players certainly aren’t lacking in confidence. Even though Packers fans would point out that they are lacking in Super Bowl rings.

    Too bad their offensive line and wide receivers are junior college like.

  2. purpleguy says: Jun 13, 2011 11:29 AM

    Given the predictions/statements of Suh, Urlacher and Briggs, maybe the Pack should just forfiet the season.

  3. lbpackfan says: Jun 13, 2011 11:29 AM

    Hahahaha…the Bears are World Championship “like” … and the Green Bay Packers ARE World Champions.

    Da Bears still suck.

    You guys DO look like a Championship football team, only way older.

    “Championship like — world championship like.”

    ***************************************

    LMAO

    I say the Bears are “DELUSIONAL Like”

    and acting “Rex Ryan Like”

    which make them looking “Assinine Like”

  6. bjorntorock says: Jun 13, 2011 11:31 AM

    He should probaly tell that to Cutler who thinks his number one reciever is Charles Woodson.

  7. bearsblow says: Jun 13, 2011 11:31 AM

    The Bears will be 3rd in the division this yr.

  8. bubbabart says: Jun 13, 2011 11:33 AM

    Must be the Great lakes water….Detroit moron going 16-0…now this stupidity!

  9. chowncheese says: Jun 13, 2011 11:34 AM

    Can you say “Packer Envy”?

  10. tombradyswig says: Jun 13, 2011 11:35 AM

    Is Lance trying to be a comedian!?!?
    9-7 at best!!

  11. irishgary says: Jun 13, 2011 11:37 AM

    Is Briggs still playing?

  12. shaggytoodle says: Jun 13, 2011 11:39 AM

    Thats funny, cuz I heard the Miami Heat saying very similar things, how did that work out?

  13. dryble says: Jun 13, 2011 11:40 AM

    Championship caliber team that needed help from the refs to beat the Lions last year(in both games).

  14. puppetmaster says: Jun 13, 2011 11:40 AM

    Detroit has a better chance of going 16-0 than Chicago has of being “World Championship Like”

  15. scoops1 says: Jun 13, 2011 11:40 AM

    Hey Lance…Reality called, he wants you to wake up

  16. seahawkhuskyfan says: Jun 13, 2011 11:42 AM

    You know I hate the Packers, but it is funny to listen to all the other jackwagons in this division run their mouths. Once again I hate the Packers, but at least they are professional. Did I mention I hate the Packers? But props to them for having the class of a champion

  17. vetdana says: Jun 13, 2011 11:49 AM

    With an O line like swiss cheese, a soon to be shell shocked QB and recievers committed to “dropitis”, the only thing the bears are champions of , is the Bush League !

  18. pigeonpea says: Jun 13, 2011 11:54 AM

    Hey Biggs:

    Until you win the NFC Championship and then the Super Bowl, the only thing you are going to be “like” is the rest of the losers in the league. Capiche?

    That being said, here’s to another Packers/Bears NFC Championship in 2011!

  19. tougie1 says: Jun 13, 2011 11:55 AM

    I can only imagine what that world championship like ring looks like.

    Get real Lance, you’re not even nfc championship like.

  20. pacificamjr says: Jun 13, 2011 11:56 AM

    7-9

  21. pkrjones says: Jun 13, 2011 11:58 AM

    OMG – why do these morons keep talking? The Bears came close, failed, and STILL talk like they were the best team in 2010… they came in 2nd place in the “almost won it all” contest to NY Jets (because Rex talked out of his A$$ 1st).

  22. packerrube13 says: Jun 13, 2011 11:59 AM

    Ha ha what?

    Your 2011 Superbowl champion GB Packers say differently. And with the talent infusion that we are going to get with returning vets on IR and the Draft from two months ago, I’d say the Packers are still improving. How exactly have the Bears improved? Laughable.

    Lions will take second and claim a Wild Card spot, while the Bear battle with the Vikes for 3rd in the North. Note it.

  23. gdeli says: Jun 13, 2011 12:02 PM

    bs, they will take a stepbackward this year. Enough of the bs talk like lebron and just do it like a mature winner!

  24. nickynick04 says: Jun 13, 2011 12:08 PM

    The Green Bay Packers are the World Champions. Hey Bears kiss the ring !

  25. SpartaChris says: Jun 13, 2011 12:12 PM

    Scoreboard.

  26. bearsbulls34 says: Jun 13, 2011 12:12 PM

    Well then win a Championship, because I’m tired of settling for mediocrity.

  27. packattack1967 says: Jun 13, 2011 12:18 PM

    An old team with monster contracts and no draft choices.

  28. thegonz13 says: Jun 13, 2011 12:20 PM

    @bjorntorock… actually, Cutler’s favorite receiver in DeAngelo Hall. Remember his four picks in the Washington game last year?

  29. b7p19 says: Jun 13, 2011 12:32 PM

    Should he have told the truth and said the Bears are “borderline playoff like”?

  30. gregjennings85 says: Jun 13, 2011 12:34 PM

    1.) That Great Lakes water will be providing financing for the nation within the next 200 years.

    2.) Congrats to the Bears, I can’t wait to own a,

    “Chicago Bears: Championship-like”, T-shirt.

  31. carlgerbschmidt says: Jun 13, 2011 12:48 PM

    It’s going to be hard to let the bears remain as our rival if their players keep saying stupid things like this. It’s almost vikes-like…

    Him and DeAngelo Hall.

  33. chargerdillon says: Jun 13, 2011 1:05 PM

    I never really noticed how stupid Lance Briggs was till now.

  34. CKL says: Jun 13, 2011 1:10 PM

    IMO Briggs and Urlacher are huge d-bags so I am not surprised they would mouth off. I can see both of them on the Jets someday. :D

  35. imjinbrdgr says: Jun 13, 2011 1:12 PM

    He may be right! They do have a “world championship like” receiver in B.J. Raji.

  36. voiceofrealism says: Jun 13, 2011 1:13 PM

    Briggs statement is not far off. They were in the playoffs so they are a contender that’s for sure.

    Urlacher, however, is delusional.

  37. goombar2 says: Jun 13, 2011 1:14 PM

    “Like” a champion? That’s right up there with Suh talking about going 16-0 and he isn’t even on a team that’s gone 500 in 2 decades…

    Keep disrespecting the world champions guys, you do know you have to play them 2 times…

  38. ICDogg says: Jun 13, 2011 1:14 PM

    While I don’t agree with it, I like the confidence.

  39. animals1977 says: Jun 13, 2011 1:16 PM

    This, coming from the same entitled idiot who crashed his Lamborghini on Lake Shore Drive, then called a friend who came and got him right away, so he could leave the car abandoned, so he could avoid getting a DUI.

    Being a Packer fan in Illinois is so great. Da Bears, LOL.

  40. footballhistorian says: Jun 13, 2011 1:31 PM

    will be, “Championship like — world championship like”…only without the world championship…like

  41. schmitty2 says: Jun 13, 2011 1:36 PM

    Had Briggs said this prior to the 1985 season then I would give him huge props

    Exept for the chamionship part.

    They are world famous I guess.

  44. bjorntorock says: Jun 13, 2011 2:09 PM

    my appoligies guys…the bears receiving core consist of C woodson, tramon williams, sam shields, nick collins, B J raji….with furture chicago touchdown machine morgan burnett coming this year! GO CUTLER!!!!!!

  45. comeonnowguys says: Jun 13, 2011 2:15 PM

    @dryble

    “Championship caliber team that needed help from the refs to beat the Lions last year(in both games).”

    Are Lion fans as a whole really that dumb to think the refs handed them the second game? I’ve seen this a few times in the past month and I’m starting to wonder if it’s not just a couple of random outliers.

    P.S. Lance Briggs’ glasses are very, very, very rose-colored.

  46. calhounlambeau says: Jun 13, 2011 2:18 PM

    The Chicago Bears, always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

  47. schmitty2 says: Jun 13, 2011 2:19 PM

    Maybe the Bears can play the Jets in the inaugural “World Champion like” Super Bowl

  48. jimmysee says: Jun 13, 2011 2:24 PM

    Trade that guy to the Jets, stat! He’s suffering from Rex Ryan disease!

  49. stvang says: Jun 13, 2011 2:25 PM

    We can name the championship like trophy The Ryan Trophy of Paper champions.

    Jay Cutler is very quaterback like. I hear he plays one on TV sometimes.

    Its a new season all bets are off. I wouldnt bet on any team being as good or as bad as last year. Except perhaps the Jills, they are a sad bunch in deed.

  50. henrypuppyhead says: Jun 13, 2011 2:32 PM

    “Kick me” sign.

  51. 305phinphan says: Jun 13, 2011 2:50 PM

    Good thing the CBA is not in place because if it were I would guarantee Briggs would fail a drug test after making a statement like that.

  52. jutts says: Jun 13, 2011 2:56 PM

    Man, a lot of “Haters” out there…. NFC North, the best devision in football. That is if this bullsh-t ever gets over with…

  53. backdapack says: Jun 13, 2011 4:14 PM

  54. edhochuli says: Jun 13, 2011 4:22 PM

    And tofu is meat-like…..

  55. ilovefoolsball says: Jun 13, 2011 5:04 PM

    The Bears? Championship like?
    Not with that QB, those WR’s and that O’Line.

    Well part of that is on you, because you don’t remember the time he wrapped his sports car around a telephone pole and ditched it.

    Yeah he says and does silly things.

  57. hulkhagan says: Jun 17, 2011 3:07 PM

    Nearly every person on here is completely idiotic. You obviously have no idea what u are talking about. I respect every team in the NFL. That doesnt mean that I love every team. The bears last year came very close to the super bowl. Even though they did not make it, they showed huge improvement from the previous years. The packers have a good team and so do the bears. Whoever says that the detroit lions have as good a chance of being 16-0 as the bears being world champions are biased and uncomprehendingly stupid. No matter how much crap you give the bears, they will still be a very good team.

    (and by the way, the packers got into the playoffs on a wildcard last year. There a great team but im just saying) :)

    ===================================
    I don’t understand the point of this statement. Does getting in as a wild card somehow undermine their 3 road playoff wins and Super Bowl victory?
