Chicago Bears LB Pernell McPhee on New York Giants: ‘We’re Gonna Tear Their Ass Up’
Despite being 2-7 and pretty much playing for draft position at this point of the season, there’s at least one player on the Chicago Bears who still has some fight left in him.
Chicago Bears linebacker Pernell McPhee is so amped up about Sunday’s match-up against the New York Giants that he started trash talking about what the Bears defense is going to do to Giants QB Eli Manning.
“We gonna tear their a.ss up,” McPhee said. “I don’t care what everybody else did. We gonna sack him. He can throw the ball as many times as he wants — we gonna sack him. I’m gonna make sure of that.”

Manning has since responded to McPhee:
“Like I said, they have a good defensive line,” Manning said in typical Eli fashion after the quote was read to him. “They’re getting a lot of sacks. They have four guys that are getting sacks, especially in the last four or five games. All of them are getting into the action. We have to be prepared for a talented front four.”
