Kyle Long and big brother Chris have had a competitive relationship since they were young.
A future NFL offensive lineman and defensive end, four years apart, in the same house? Makes sense.
Kyle, appearing on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Tuesday, talked about some of their household battles and how they needed “very dense furniture” to combat their size.
Patrick, the best interviewer in the business, kept digging for more brotherly banter.
The Bears 26-year-old offensive lineman said his injured brother “facetimed” him on Wednesday from the Rams’ meeting room, but he handed the phone to his backup William Hayes “who was talking smack to me.”
Patrick prodded again: “I know you guys won the war, but who won the battle?”
Kyle saw an opening and fired the last jabs at big brother.
“Well, the Bears won,” Kyle reiterated matter of factly. “I think we nearly doubled the St. Louis Rams’ score. I know we doubled their fan base. By the end of the game it was a Chicago home game.”
Patrick: “But did you get the best of your brother?”
Kyle: “Well he was on the sidelines so I guess by default …”
Better hide the furniture for Thanksgiving dinner, Howie.
