(CBS) Eight years ago today, the Bears made a classic comeback against the Cardinals on Monday Night Football. And then Arizona coach Dennis Green produced a postgame press conference that was one for the ages.
After seeing his Cardinals blow a 23-3 second-half lead against the Bears by virtue of two Chicago defensive touchdowns and a punt return score by Devin Hester — and watching a late field-goal attempt for the lead sail wide — Green took his anger out in front of reporters.
“The Bears are who we thought they were!” Green screamed. “That’s why we took the (dang) field. If you want to crown ’em, then crown their (butt).”
Check out the epic rant above. An underrated part? The (presumably) PR man off to the side saying, “Thanks, coach” after the meltdown.
The clip will live on forever.
