Here is what Briggs said:
“It should fire them up,” Briggs said. “I know it definitely fires us up. We’ve got it pinned up everywhere in our meeting rooms.”
A reporter noted to Briggs that the Bears had won 18 straight against the Lions and wondered if it would be safe to guarantee a win.
“Everybody is calling this a trap game,” Briggs said. “That’s a trap question right there.”
Here is what Lions WR Nate Burelson said earlier this week about Sunday’s game:
“Yeah, I said we will win on Sunday,” Burleson said. “We only got five games left, and my goal is to finish the season 7-9. Like I’ve been saying all year, we don’t have a team on the schedule that we can’t beat.”
MLB Brian Urlacher had this to say about the Lions game:
“I think we’re going to win,” he said, “but I’m not going to guarantee it.”
“Yeah, I know what he’s saying,” Urlacher said of Burleson’s comment. “You fully expect to win every game. If you don’t believe that, why are you playing or why are you getting ready to play?
“I’m not sure you go out and say that, but I think we all believe that.”
