Urlacher laughs off Finley's comments

Brian Urlacher doesnt mind Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley talking unflatteringly about him. Just dont talk about his family, as in his teammates.

Visiting with former Bear teammate and Comcast SportsNet analyst Jim Miller and former NFL GM Pat Kirwan on Sirius XM radios Movin the Chains show Thursday, Urlacher found all of the by-play between players from the two teams amusing. So he threw in a touch of his own toward Finley, whod suggested that Urlacher had been looking slow and maybe the Bears would be better with someone else in his place.

A couple of years ago 2010 he tore his ACL and the Packers were better without him, Urlacher said, laughing. They won the Super Bowl.

I hope we can duplicate that as well. It wont hurt my feelings if we go out and win the Super Bowl.

Urlacher laughed also about the regularity with which it seems shots are taken at him, whether from a Green Bay tight end or a publication declaring him the most overrated player in the NFL.

People can say what they want, Urlacher said. I think I deal with something like this every year, people saying something about me. Its a revolving door.

One revolving door Urlacher adamantly did not want to see turning was one involving the head coach of the Chicago Bears.

Urlacher has long been a supporter of Lovie Smith and took strong issue with some criticisms of him and with the two-faced character among some media.

Hes done a great job with our team, Urlacher said. Its so frustrating to hear people say he doesnt get fired up on the sidelines.

Then our quarterback gets fired up, shows emotion, gets pissed off, and the media kills him for it. I just dont understand that. When its time to go, Lovie lets us know what we need to get done. We love playing for him.
