PFT's Florio talks Urlacher on SportsTalk Live
you it certainly didn't the Chicago bear fan base Brian Urlacher hang him up after thirteen stellar seasons what your ..... Bears going forward new coach GM in his second year no Brian Urlacher . How did they move or what type of team you think theysurprise to you it certainly didn't -- the Chicago bear fan base Brian Urlacher hang him up after thirteen stellar seasons what your take. On Urlacher is career. Well. He's got to be considered as one of the all time great Chicago Bears defenders and and likely addition of the hall of fame at some point it's gonna be tough on that first ballot though because right now Ray Lewis Ronde Barber. Possibly Randy Moss all in that mix for the first time in 2018 along with Urlacher but he'll get there eventually and he's been a cornerstone. For the Bears defense for so long it really. Is going to seem strange without him on the field but not as strange as it would have been. To see him playing for someone else -- I told you rank the all time best middle linebackers in football former bear GM Jerry Angelo said today. He'd go butkus Ray Lewis Urlacher How would you stack them up. I don't know that I would give that third spot to Urlacher there's a guy named Jack Lambert who played pretty tough middle linebacker back in the 1970s there's a lot of guys that would be easy to overlook. Lot of great middle linebackers over history but a lot of them who deserve to be in the hall of fame and guys like Urlacher who likely will be all right -- explain to the younger generation. Who -- tweeting at me all day that they would take Urlacher over Dick Butkus why they are probably misguided. While Urlacher is extremely athletic and he was able to play sideline to sideline and cover receivers he gets the ball and make thethe Bears going forward new coach GM in his second year no Brian Urlacher . How did they move or what type of team you think they have a 2013 I don't Vegas as over under on
Moon breaks down Urlacher's decision
phenomenon of Brian Urlacher we'd see 54 jerseys ..... Mike Singletary and Brian Urlacher played they play with ..... the of nick wrote Brian Urlacher Lance Briggs and after ..... stands we won't see Brian Urlacher playing middle linebackerat him early in the season so why he's not the same Brian Urlacher . And then -- sort of wrote him off and he got progressively better than that team was that was a top ten defense top five defense. So yeah I think there was a lot there was some football left I think that's one Bears offered a million dollar guarantee. Lot of debate around the NFL -- Urlacher ranks among the all time greats at middle linebacker where you stand on that issue. Boy that's. Make enemies and friends --with Charles Tillman Julius Peppers and such. What about the phenomenon of Brian Urlacher we'd see 54 jerseys all over Soldier Field all across Chicago land. The popularity of a guy who played middle linebacker Chicago pretty amazing stuff. Now it is I mean it's it's a grunt position -- it's sort of but he had a unit in some respects that position is defined. It -- that is the city of big shoulder pads and it's that's the kind of tough guy the image of the Chicago as of itself whether it's baucus bill George. You know the eyes of Mike Singletary and Brian Urlacher played -- they play with fun I think that's been overlooked sometimes you remember remember Brian and having fun playing football. I think got a body of a lot of the way Chicago looks at the game. The fans will certainly -- number 54 but the game goes on the Bears didn't draft a couple linebackers last month they also sign a couple pretty good free agents. Will that be a position of strength or weakness for the upcoming season you know mark I think it's deeper than has been going into most of the last few off seasons you know with the with the of nick wrote Brian Urlacher Lance Briggs and after that. So the fact based on a second and a fourth round draft choice on -- good choices some young guys and signed to veterans all of a sudden they've got five. Pretty promising linebackers I don't I don't think we've gone to training camp with that kind of depth that anytime recently. Social thing the 54 jerseys in the stands -- we won't see Brian Urlacher playing middle linebacker anymore John thank you very much will be following your coverage on CSN Chicago dot count them.
