Lance Briggs also thinks the Bears get booed more than any other team

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Lance Briggs backed up teammate Brian Urlacher on Tuesday night.

On Tuesday night on his TV show, Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs affirmed teammate Brian Urlacher's assessment that the team gets booed at home more than any other team in the NFC North.

"I understand where he's coming from," Briggs said. "I've been here a long time, too and I've [heard] a lot of boos. For a lot of the wrong reasons. Nobody, on any team I've seen, gets booed more at home than here in Chicago.

Briggs also praised the passion of Bears fans, but said that "everyone in Chicago doesn't know how to run a football team." Urlacher set off a firestorm after he responded to a reporter's question about Lovie Smith's job security by accusing Bears fans of booing the team too much at home.

Unfortunately, the controversy will have to resolve itself next season, as last week's loss to the Green Bay Packers was the Bears' final home game of the 2012 season. Chicago will travel to face the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday before wrapping the season up by visiting the Detroit Lions.

The Bears fell out of the playoffs as they stand now after the loss to the Packers but can put themselves in solid position to snatch a birth by winning out.
