Regarding the Ray Lewis and Urlacher comparisons, these have always been very different type players. There is no comparison. I also believe Lewis had more in the tank at this stage than Urlacher has. And hey, Lewis is retired.
I'm not dissing Brian here. I've enjoyed his play MUCH more than watching Lewis. But you can't compare the two in this situation. It's just not accurate to say Brian is going to be playing at a Ray Lewis level this year, just because Ray did last year.
