The Bears Beat (06.26.12): Briggs latest Bear to compare 2012 Bears to past teams

June 26th, 2012 - 6:00 pm

Lovie Smith said he’d have to bring the 2006 Super Bowl team into comparisons with this year’s squad. Charles Tillman said this year’s crop of cornerbacks is the best he’s ever played with as a member of the team. Brian Urlacher said “the talent we have on this team is phenomenal” and that “it’s not even close” that this team is the best he’s played for. Now, Lance Briggs chimes in with his thoughts saying the 2012 Bears “definitely could be” the best he’s played for. Also, Briggs says he will not be upset if Forte holds out, plus other Bears and NFL news.
