Bears, Packers take rivalry off field leading up to game
War of words
With any luck the Bears-Packers game Sunday will measure up to the sniping it's getting as the teams continue the back-and-forth that resumed Wednesday when Brandon Marshall talked for nearly 20 minutes about his disdain for the neighbors to the north.
Lance Briggs didn't need to carry a prop with him a day after Marshall hauled around a Christmas tree to discuss what is at stake. He has lived the rivalry for a decade, riding the ups – including a 6-2 record for Lovie Smith vs. Brett Favre –and the downs – a current five-game losing streak to Aaron Rodgers.
"[Marshall] said it best," Briggs said. "Doesn't like them and is going to play this game like it's his last. I feel the same way."
