Bears Don't Really Rank Among Fox's Top 100 Players

69. Lance Briggs, LB, Bears (2009 Rank: 81)

With a new deal in the offseason, Briggs was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise forgettable season for the Bears. In 2009, the three-time All-Pro went to his fifth Pro Bowl, leading the Bears with 147 tackles. The former third-round pick is only the third Bears player since 1971 to record 1,000 career tackles, reaching the 100-tackle plateau in each of the previous six seasons. With Julius Peppers on the D-line and a healthy Brian Urlacher back roaming the middle, look for the Bears defense to return to greatness in 2010.

Briggs slides in next representing the Bears at #69, moving up 12 slots from last season’s ranking.  The biggest surprise for me is that he finished ahead of his running mate.

    Hey Boomer

    You’re doing a great job, thanks.

    I’m a Briggs guy, he’s the best player on our defense. Has been for years and deserves more credit. Read Urlacher’s bio, doesn’t even mention Briggs… not right. But we did have 4 of the top 100, not terrible.

    Blew me away that Cedric made the cut.

    Keep plugging away Boomer, I’ve been in Mexico, came home to find the summer blues hitting your commenting. I’ll keep reading.
