During a question and answer session at the Lions’ 20th annual Courage House dinner on Wednesday night, Lions vice chairman Bill Ford called the Bears a “bunch of thugs” when asked about the electric atmosphere during the Lions’ 40-32 victory Sunday at Ford Field.
The win vaulted the Lions (3-1) into a first-place tie in the NFC North and knocked Chicago from the ranks of the unbeaten.
“It was really alive, and it was alive when we played those same bunch of thugs on Monday Night a couple (years ago),” Ford said. “When this place gets going it’s electric and we do have wonderful fans. Our fans are amazing and we would love to pay them back and bring home a winner, and I love the way this team is playing right now.”
