SHARE UPDATED: 3:31 Briggs on ESPN’s NFL Live

Linebacker Lance Briggs is on ESPN’s “NFL Live” right now.

They’ll handle a myriad of topics, several non-Bears related, but we’ll see what shakes out.

I’d expect him to fully support Brian Urlacher’s drive for more dough.

Stay tuned.

Heres a recap of the show so far … and Lance showed up in a snazzy silver jacket.

— Joined by host Trey Wingo and analysys Cris Carter and Mark Schlereth, they opened by dancing around the latest in Miami with defensive end Jason Taylor.

— Next, they talked about safety Roy Williams in Dallas, whose game may be more vilified than Adam Archuletas right now.

Cowboys teammate Terence Newman said Williams suffers from deer in the headlights breakdowns from time to time. Ouch.

Next was a break for commercials.

Then they moved to a one-on-one with Wingo and Briggs that began with a discussion of Urlachers situation.

I dont really know, Briggs said when asked how the staredown would be resolved. I hope for the best. I just cant see stepping on the field [in the regular season] without 54.

Briggs said he supports Cedric Benson and whoever else will be running the football and didnt lend anything special to the quarterback dilemma.

No discussion of Briggs various off-field issues through the first half of the show.

More commercials.

Check back.


Nothing terribly exciting in the second half of the show.

They discussed Vince Young in Tennessee and kicked around the fact that Brett Favre’s locker is still in tact in Green Bay. If it causes any Packers to lose focus, Briggs said he’s all for it.

In closing, Pacman Jones and his relationship with Deion Sanders (does Devin Hester know he’s not the only one getting advice?) was discussed.

“Deion is to Pacman Jones as a mentor like Brian Urlacher is to me,” Briggs said.
