Lance Briggs will be “pissed” if he loses to Tebow

AP

The Bears just lost to Tyler Palko at home. If they lose to Tim Tebow on the road, Lance Briggs will really go off.

Asked Thursday if he’d be embarrassed if the Bears lost to Tebow in Denver: “No, I will be frickin’ pissed.”

The Bears gave good soundbite on Thursday.  A sampling:

Briggs: “[Tebow] is one heck of a football player and we’re going to have to stop that crap.”

Brian Urlacher on Tebow’s athleticism via the Chicago Tribune: “He’s not Michael Vick.”

Briggs: “Cam Newton’s a better athlete, faster.”

Urlacher on preparing for the Broncos: “We have rules for every offense we play. Carolina ran a similar offense.”

Briggs via ESPN Chicago: “[Defending the option] isn’t rocket scientist . . . er . . . rocket science.”

We don’t find anything inflammatory in the Bears’ words, but the team sounds rather fired up.

This may just be Tebow’s biggest challenge yet. The Bears have the type of disciplined defense with great linebackers that could give Denver problems. Unfortunately for Chicago, the Bears also have Caleb Hanie at quarterback.

Tebow may be no Michael Vick, but Hanie is no Tim Tebow.

  1. “We don’t find anything inflammatory in the Bears’ words”
    ————————————————————-

    There’s nothing inflammatory in the responses but there is in the question – who the hell asked it?

    Tebow had a near perfect QB rating last week.

    Tebow’s not a saint because he thanks God or builds hospitals but because he continues to put up with this nonsense.

  2. Blah, blah whatever. Remember that when you’re in the fourth quarter, winded, and the Broncos are running the ball down your throat.

  3. As a Tebow fan, I have no problem with what Briggs says. He gave Tebow a pretty good compliment (one heck of a player), made an accurate statement that he is not as fast or athletic as Newton, and said he would be pissed if his team lost 3 straight.

    Why is this newsworthy?

  4. …briggs should really just come out “we are going to crush tebow because we have satan and all his evil powers on our side…i’d like to give a shout out to satan…without him none of this would be possible!”

  5. If you thought last week was an offensive masterpiece by the Bears and Chiefs, wait until this week. I predict under 300 total yards of offense… combined for both teams.

  6. Dude is gonna be poised then. Chicago is good on defense, but have nothing on offense. Broncos 13-6

  7. Asked Thursday if he’d be embarrassed if the Bears lost to Tebow in Denver: “No, I will be frickin’ pissed.”
    —————————————-
    If The Broncos beat the bears, Briggs will know how the rest of the league felt when the bears won games with rex grossman and that brian ‘greasy’ guy… it’s embarassing losing to a garbage QB.

  8. If the roles were reversed and it was a white linebacker talking crap about a black QB and how he doesn’t compare to the smarter, more accurate white QB’s, all hell would break lose.

  9. Not a Tebow fan my any means, but he somehow wins. Ugly as it may be, a W is a W is a W.

    Caleb Hanie is not very good. I sense another 4th quarter Tebow drive.

  10. My goodness man, “… Hanie is no Tim Tebow”? He’s not even Brady Quinn or Captain Neckbeard for that matter!

  11. Go Bears. Sick of the Tebow talk.

    And no, it’s not because I “hate” Tebow. It’s because of the media and the fact I can’t watch a single damn NFL show without them talking about him for half the time, or worse, multiple times throughout the show.

    Nothing worse than beating us over the head with the same crap, day after day, week after week.

  12. Jeez. Hope the Bears have good insurance for their inbound flight, it may be struck by lightning.

  13. Who really cares if hes not mike vick or cam newton, but whatever him and the broncos are doing now is working. Tebow has more wins than both those guys anyway.

  14. Well I’ll tell u this… By trying to pick out his poorer qualities… Only fires up tebow more… And have u seen the guy when he is fired up? Bears just made their first poor decision of the game… Cuz in tebow’s mind… This game began last Sunday evening…and best believe he has read these comments and working on them…

  15. Tell Conte not to knock INT’s out of Urlacher’s hands and we should be fine…

    0-0 with neither team getting past their own 40yd line going into overtime sounds about right. Game ends on a Hester return or Tebow miracle drive.

    (lots of Bears stories lately!)

  16. “Brian Urlacher on Tebow’s athleticism via the Chicago Tribune: “He’s not Michael Vick.”
    ————————————————————————————
    And urlacher is no Dick Butkus.

  17. This should be there attitude for all games, not just because Tebow is playing. Tebow isn’t a lot of players, not sure why players always say this crap. One thing he is, is bigger than Vick, so have fun bouncing off him.

  18. The best way to best the Option is tough hard hitting and more importantly DISCIPLINED linebackers. The Bears have that. But the Bears have no offense.

    Broncos beat Da Bears on Sunday. 20-16

  19. No, Tebow’s not Vick. He plays and actually wins games.
    If Briggs can make face-mask tackles like he apparently did against KC, they should be able to “stop that crap”.

  20. Tebow may be no Michael Vick, but Hanie is no Tim Tebow.
    ——————-
    Enuff said, sorry Bears fans but yall lose this one………and Tebow will get all the glory but im betting V.Miller(killer) will get the game ball.

  21. You should already be pissed for inexcusably losing to the Palko led chiefs,Denver will probably beat you bad!

  22. “But the Bears have no offense.
    Broncos beat Da Bears on Sunday. 20-16”

    how did that make any sense? The Bronco’s D is nothing now?
    how does Palko score 16 points when he is sacked 6 times?
    Tebow doesn’t turn the ball over enough to give the bears 16.
    Ah yeah Matt Forte is gunna break it twice and then get the 2 pointers. oh wait…..

  23. …let’s just hope the bears win so that we can all get a break from tebow’s god-thanking…his sky fairy gets all the glory for wins but we won’t hear a thing about him after a loss…

  24. OTOH, if Briggs and the Bears beat Tebow, they will probably go out to a club afterwards and get……well, “pissed”.

  25. I think the only way Bears win this game is Hester running one (or two) back. He should have plenty of chances!

  26. GO TELL THE ANGELS YOU MAY NEED THEIR HELP WITH YOUR QUATERBACK ARM, NOT TEBOW ARM.

    ONLY THE “FAITHFUL” CAN STOP TEBOW, SO I QUEST YOU LOSE AGAIN.

  27. Could you even imagine Tebow quitting in a Conference Champship game like Brigg’s QB did? Yeah, Yeah Bears fans…I know…thumbs down.

    =============================

    Don’t remember anyone talking about Cutler here. But, to your point, the injury Cutler suffered, there is no stability in the knee moving laterally, also planting his foot when throwing.
    He played the 2nd quarter and beginning of the 3rd, until he felt it was detrimental to his team to continue playing.

    Not catching your point here, but I will say, if you were standing in the pocket, and 300 pound angry men were coming to tear your head off, I am sure you run in the opposite direction and home to mommy !

    People who blindly repeat uninformed things always get thumbed down. At least you’re prepared for it.

  30. This might be the first game in history where a team has negative yards throwing and passing. Tebow is in a huge amount of trouble vs this bear d. 54 55 and 90 will take care of business. Tebow will go backwards in this game.

  31. Tebow’s not a saint because he thanks God or builds hospitals but because he continues to put up with this nonsense.

    ———–

    he’s going to have to put up with it until he proves he can beat teams with his arm. for all the people that say that he beat minnesota last week with his arm; i say you didn’t look at the tape closely. i saw at least nine busted coverages and if you look at the completions he made, there wasn’t a corner, safety or linebacker in the picture.

    i like tebow and i like what he stands for but there’s a lot of loving going around for a guy that has beaten some average to below average teams…

  32. “This might be the first game in history where a team has negative yards throwing and passing. Tebow is in a huge amount of trouble vs this bear d. 54 55 and 90 will take care of business. Tebow will go backwards in this game.”

    Caleb Hanie.

    That is all.

  33. This is a great board, I love all the responses. Doubting Tebow gives him motivation, not believing that he is a reputable QB is a laugh, considering the wins and his steady improvement. But the best is that this is Denver’s backup QB kicking the crap out of other teams backup QB’s and all you hear is how lucky the Broncos are getting to face teams with injured players. This is the NFL you can either play or not.

    If you can’t then draft someone. Caleb Hanie, Tyler Palko, T.J. Yates these are guys that have a job to lead the team if the starting QB gets hurt. guess what starting QB’s get hurt, get a servicable backup, and quit complaining. The Bears should already be ready for this given Cutler going down at the END of last year also.

    Poor preparation is just an excuse for ignorant fans. I guess hating Tebow is easier to do than hating yourself, your defense, your team, your coach, your organization for not preparing. Open your eyes and take accountability for how you are.

    And the last time I checked Bear’s fans you can’t win games with 0 points.

    I think Tebow THROWS for 2 TD’s because your still to focused on stopping his run.

  34. Hmmmm…funny how everybody beats the crap out of Hanie..yep..he didn’t play real good..but ..he got it right more than a few times and the rest of the offense screwed it up. I think we’re reading him wrong here… I sense he’ll turn it around this week. Gonna be fun to watch!!!!

  35. Funny thing is, no one is talking about the Denver defense versus Caleb Hanie. If I were the Broncos and I lost to Hanie, I’d be a whole lot madder than the Bears will be if they lose to Tim Tebow.

    Even if the Bears shut down Tebow, the Bronco defense will win this game for Denver. Hanie has been inept beyond words.

    Shouldn’t someone arrogant enough to include “educated” in their screen name know the difference between “your” and “you’re”…?

    Or where the apostrophe should (not) go in the phrase “Bears fans”?

    How are we supposed to trust your football insights when YOU’RE throwing up such godawful airballs in YOUR basic grammar usage?

  37. Tebow sucks, Broncos have played really bad teams.. I think the Bears will end up beating them but once again its a easy game for the Broncos, No Forte! If he was playing Bears win by more than 2 tds.
    Broncos are not going to the playoffs.. Raiders will win the west.. Broncos are not goin to beat the Chargers and they will even lose to KC and THEY WILL NOT BEAT THE PATS.
    Raiders will probably lose against Packers but after that they win out and then we can all put these fluke Tebow wins to bed…
    I hate to break it to Broncos fans but your Defense is not going to score 14 points every game to win

  38. Broncos have faced the 8th toughest schedule in the league, 7th highest “strength of win” rating.

    Sorry, those are the FACTS.

  39. Let’s leave Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Yahweh, Zeus and name-your-god out of this and settle this on the field. Talk is cheap, especially from armchair wannabe “players” talking ish on a message board, lol…

    Dude what are you talking about? The Raiders are in Green Bay this week and the Broncos don’t play the Chargers again. Carson Palmer gets worse every week. Miami beat the snot out of them. The Raiders might finish 3rd in the division if the Chargers do their usual undefeated December. Denver wins this week will have a tough time against New England but that game is home. They will win at Buffalo and finish at home against the Chiefs (win). The Raiders lose to Green Bay, then play Detroit, KC at arrowhead and the Chargers. Taking bets on who finishes with a better record……

  41. …briggs should be pissed if he loses to tebow…can you imagine how embarrassing it must be to lose to a christian godboy who eagerly thanks his imaginary friend in the sky for all this success?

  42. hey broncos fans who’s your punter?? hope he is good or your team is screwed. I do remember the last time bears played the broncos hester had 2 punts returned for a td.

    Also the bears defense is top 5 against the run so goodluck running it.

  43. At this point, it’s pretty easy to tell who really has a problem with Tebow because of non-football related issues. I mean, the guy has done nothing but win. To continue to criticize his religion or to say he can’t win games with his arm after he just did (oh, right, it wasn’t his arm, it was the busted coverage…) just really shows a person’s ignorance and intolerence. Keep it coming guys…I hope Tebow wins out (pretty sure Broncos can’t be NE) just to spite those of you who are being so…well, spiteful!!

  44. If that end zone pass from haine last week goes to anybody but Williams, bears are 8-4 in overtime.

    Actually, if Martz doesn’t call that ridiculous screen in the redzone against the raiders, bears are 9-3.

    We are losing to inferior competition, and it isn’t just Haines fault.

  45. Briggs, prepare to be pissed then. If we score more than 6 points we will win this game. Don’t know if you know this, but you don’t have anyone on offense anymore.
    @catchhester23
    Yeah we actually have the best punter in the league…. so you might want to look that stuff up before you talk about it.
    Name is Britton Colquitt.
    Broncos – 17, Bears – 3
