Lance Briggs and Brian Urlacher are feuding.
Briggs, possibly awash in self-admiration after interception returns for touchdowns in successive games against Dallas and Jacksonville, declared on Friday that while he didnt know for sure who had the best hands on the Bears defense, he knew he was at least close.
But whoever has the best hands, Im definitely top 3, Briggs said. I can tell you that much. Im putting myself in the top 3.
One-time college safety Urlacher, who has a 27-yard TD catch to his NFL credit along with 21 interceptions, does not share Briggs uncertainty over best.
Im No. 1. I just never get around the ball, Urlacher said. He said hes No. 3? Which guys did he put ahead of him?
Briggs didnt say. Urlacher would.
Im putting myself in front of him.
Briggs was later informed that Urlacher claimed to better hands than Briggs did.
Thats a lie, Briggs retorted. Hes lying.
Sources report no change in the Bears-Lions betting line because of the feuding linebackers.
