Coach Lovie Smith didn't seem concerned today as his team filed in for the start of training camp.
When the Seahawks beat the Dallas Cowboys in the first round of the playoffs last season, Seattle became the first Super Bowl runner-up since 1997 to win a post-season game the following season.
But Smith says the Bears don't buy into the clichDes about losing Super Bowl teams.
One of the biggest potential distractions was erased yesterday when disgruntled Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs agreed to a one-year deal as the team's franchise player -- after threatening to sit out the season.
Smith says Briggs probably won't be at Olivet Nazarene University until Sunday.
