Bears think they’re kicking off a Super Bowl campaign

Players in the Bears’ locker room are in agreement that today is the first day of a Super Bowl season.

The Northwest Herald in suburban Chicago has a roundup of quotes from Bears players who believe that this team is as good a Bears team as the Windy City has seen since 1985.

Super Bowl or bust,” linebacker Lance Briggs said.

Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has acknowledged that he’s not at full speed after dealing with a knee injury all offseason, still believes that the Bears are in top form.

“Top to bottom,” Urlacher said, “this is the deepest team I’ve been on, and the most talented as well.”

Bears cornerback Kelvin Hayden has been on a Super Bowl-winning team in Indianapolis and doesn’t see why this year’s group in Chicago can’t win a Super Bowl as well.

“This is a veteran group, we have depth everywhere, so there’s kind of no gray areas – my personal opinion,” Hayden said. “We definitely have goals set as far as winning the division, taking care of business in the playoffs and winning the Super Bowl.”

Whatever holes Andrew Luck will try to find in the Bears’ defense today, it’s a unit that certainly isn’t lacking in confidence.

  5. source7769 says: Sep 9, 2012 7:55 AM

  6. rpiotr01 says: Sep 9, 2012 8:00 AM

    Great insights by the Bears there. Cause, ya know, most other teams in the league are sitting around saying, “Yeah, we’re sh!tty.”

    I’d like to see the Bears do well. They’re loaded on paper. Let’s see it.

    Skol Jags today! Show ’em, MoJo.

    It will be a great season for the Packers – Bears rivalry.

  9. snoilog says: Sep 9, 2012 8:11 AM

    yep so cutler can pout all the way to the SB

    Nope not going to happen, you beast is dead

  10. Nikhil Balakumar says: Sep 9, 2012 8:16 AM

    people forget the bears were one of the better teans around when cutler was healthy and with a healthy marshall, forte and michael bush they could def pull it off.

    im thinking ravens vs. bears in the big game

  11. larrydavidstern says: Sep 9, 2012 8:17 AM

    No oline and an aging D isnt exactly a Super Bowl winning formula.

  12. yooperman says: Sep 9, 2012 8:23 AM

    I see two reasons they won’t, and that’s just in their division.

  13. mitchitized says: Sep 9, 2012 8:23 AM

    Why was this tagged “Pittsburgh Steelers” again?

  14. kyotoredbird says: Sep 9, 2012 8:24 AM

    Defense is too old and their offensive line still blows.

  15. clownsfan says: Sep 9, 2012 8:38 AM

    Bears are barely in the NFC Top 10.

    Chicagomfans are the most fun to watch. When they fail, it is a glorious sight to behold.

  18. conormacleod says: Sep 9, 2012 8:58 AM

    So said the Packers last year, and the Patriots before that. Teams should just shut up and play football.

  19. kabasaman says: Sep 9, 2012 9:01 AM

    This is the best division in football….. I see three of the NFC North teams in the playoffs. But the Bears should prevail.

  20. camlwalk says: Sep 9, 2012 9:04 AM

    Stop it! Bwahhahhahahaha!! You’re killing me!!!

  21. mugatu13 says: Sep 9, 2012 9:04 AM

    Bears win the Super Bowl, Vikes say they’ll win the division, Ponder says he’ll set a new NFL record by completing 75% of his passes….guess the Mayans are right!

    The Bears are one of those teams that if everything goes right they could make it. But Cutler has to stay healthy and I also noticed that if one of his teammates drops a ball he pouts like a baby, he needs to quit that crap before he pisses all of his teammates off.

  24. someidiotfromouthereintheprojects says: Sep 9, 2012 9:13 AM

    good for them, they should think that. i don’t think that, though.

  25. straighcashhomie84 says: Sep 9, 2012 9:17 AM

    Thanks PFT! It good to have a laugh first thing in the morning!

  26. Canned Heat says: Sep 9, 2012 9:23 AM

    With Cutler at QB, you’re not.

  27. coldplay519 says: Sep 9, 2012 9:28 AM

    That’s great! I love starting my day with a good laugh, and the Bears trumped The Onion this morning!

  28. bearssuck says: Sep 9, 2012 9:28 AM

    What are they going to say, there going to end up 3rd in the division. The reality is that they will

  29. iluvbears says: Sep 9, 2012 9:30 AM

    Good luck with all that. We’ll see how it all turned out in about four months.

  30. hansenbrothers says: Sep 9, 2012 9:56 AM

    Too bad they’re not even the best in their division.

  31. asublimeday says: Sep 9, 2012 10:06 AM

    That’s great! I love starting my day with a good laugh, and the Bears trumped The Onion this morning!
