Brian Urlacher talk on CTL
Now there could be some question. Whether or not the Bears will make the playoffs threaded their questioning your mind four games to -- all I would think though the worst they would do is split. Two and two and then you'd make it any doubt that all the. -- there definitely doubts. You don't know you don't handers are such and a central part of the pro football and you don't know who else might put out. But you don't do it looking forward at this point I would I would think it could win two more years. Yeah a lot of people criticize Brian Urlacher as you know he's old hit his injuries are bothering him he's not as fast as not making the big plays anymore so how much. Will he be missed Bob. Well I think he'll be missed only because he is the leader of that defense and our guys -- know it's everybody else and they're right. Spots where they should be in. You know about the heart and soul if you -- of that defense but from you know from -- -- -- -- not get much. But again this is a new role for Nick Roach and you can he be handled -- and you know everybody else is gonna have to do a little bit more. But you know as you said Brian Urlacher getting older and -- the time is going to come where he's not going to be there not because the Hendry just because it's time for somebody else all. You know maybe this is the beginning of their process and did you in the long run it may be a good thing for the Bears. Yeah I know what things have gone bad in sports always turn to leaders and defensively. You know things gone bad for the Bears now you have to will lean on Lance Briggs and Nick Roach wasn't even the best linebacker on northwestern when he played there was some goggles now. Nick Roach has been become a very nice player and -- scored -- at -- plus he's a great kids like to have a guy went well next orderly data system and he's a great kid. Is he Brian Urlacher I think they were really miss -- Urlacher brings me let's piazza is the face of the franchise. And when you have a young team or young players they look to that guy in time and need another go play very dangerous game and the key for the Bears is can they keep getting these turnovers that have really changed their season. And of course have been talking all year about it. Aren't you getting more a more balanced contribution on the monitors where there -- offensively or defensively. And done offensively than they've been pretty gaps and especially the past couple again just not scoring enough. Points so it's up to the offense really incumbent upon now to take charges this game and take advantage of person aren't out for the rest of the year they do they're missing so you -- was Reuters is a part of the game. For Minnesota don't play it well if they're gonna make the playoffs they have to win this game -- and did this is our as a must win as it can be for the for the Vikings. Hate talk about the Bears offense we -- three quarters of the way through this season now. I'm not sure you can expect any much more -- the offense because what have we seen over the previous twelve weeks that word you know indicator at all with Clinton are gonna start running for a 150 yards. I just don't see I think this is what it is and it's gonna have to be good enough and see how far can take. I I disagree I think el Al Sean Jeffrey. Is could be an X-Factor down the stretch right Fred I -- I think is a tremendous upside. But he's been so in that lineup and and you're running out of time well also Brenda Marshall may how many more teams and play him one on one coverage I don't see too many so. Who's going to be that guy obviously told Davis haven't really you know make enough catches of maturity -- piazza and just run to block well enough to keep or let -- -- Cutler upright in order to throw it to Jeffries and sort of Marshall. You know again that this is an office I think is part of of you everything is more offensive minded defense to go in Minnesota you know what they're gonna do the Vikings that's run the football you're stopping the run is more important are getting the offense -- one. What we're gonna have to stop I think they're gonna have to stop Peterson nobody else has in the past yet yeah yeah I mean you're gonna have to score enough to win. Not how much is that going to be I don't know and -- ponder is up and down he has great games he has bad games. I don't think this is a foregone conclusion that they're gonna win I think this is gonna be a very tough game for them but even if you do make it to the playoffs what you do from there guys I just feel I feel bad for Urlacher and I feel like this was just a missed opportunity at a window of a few years here with one of the best defense is in the league. That window is closing at Urlacher for some reason can't even come back let's say for the playoffs. That that window is close I think he's still don't like there's a missed opportunity handles. So I think he still goes down and Bob and I were talking about this and I'm sure is defund kind of water cooler chatter. I think he's still look down on top five Bears of all time and I haven't third right now behind Walter Payton. That -- and then I have a three. I have met Gayle sayers and hasn't had a -- house there. Putting our young admitted answers I had -- I I have had a Gale Sayers I gave myself I may shift to later slugger David. You know the other way labor that's Ayers is. For longevity. Yeah I mean it feels there is playing today his injuries are you know nothing in these we're back you know a lot of many pictures that. Thought you know OK yeah I would think -- coaches. But obviously I pretty good players -- hoosiers have a good player really you look -- what he's done as far as that position and for that long and I've kicked this around I think he's a veteran middle linebacker than me are gonna get an idea I had a as far as identifying great players with with championships. Hard to practicing you know senators'.
