Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, who hasn't ducked from controversy, suggested in an interview Wednesday that the Bears might be better without Brian Urlacher.

Asked about that comment, Bears linebacker Lance Briggs had a simple response.

"He's an idiot," Briggs flatly said. "Just suit up and play ball.

"His comments aren't going to change the outcome of the game, they're not going to help him or anybody else play better. Doesn't really matter." Finley.jpg

On Wednesday, the Packers tight end told Fox Sports Wisconsin that Urlacher is at the end of his career.

"He's playing a little slow out there," Finley told Fox Sports Wisconsin. "I don't think they're losing too much if he's out. Putting another guy in might help them a little."

Thursday morning, on his Twitter account, Finley tried to clarify his critique.

"Urlacher is a Hall of Fame player and person," Finley wrote. "I meant no disrespect to him in previous comments, I was simply trying to explain that his replacement in the lineup is a good player as well."

The replacement, of course, is Nick Roach. Urlacher is expected to miss the game against the Packers and then against the Arizona Cardinals with a chance to maybe return for the season finale in Detroit because of a hamstring injury.
