    I didn't believe that for a minute. More will be retired over time. It may not be Brian's but how do you quit retiring jerseys if you have a truly great player? They could have a player in the future who is greater than ALL of the players already retired. If you had a guy greater than Walter Payton or Butkus do you ignore that? Heck no. And they will retire that guys jersey, just like the others.

    At least they aren't waiting as long as they did with Ditka. There were a lot of cigars smoked, pork chops sold, and rounds of golf played between his less than amicable departure and the welcome home ceremony. This is one of the big differences between George as the head of ownership and Michael. :asshatsign: I'm sure George would have wanted it to end differently too and certainly Ginny as well.

    I don't think Brian will turn them down and he needs to make certain he doesn't. Like I keep saying his issues aren't with the Bears as a team so much as they're with Phil Emery. It would probably be a very good idea to keep Phil in the background for this one. Way in the background. Let the owners and his teammates play the biggest roles in this and let the front office sit back and watch.

    Maybe this is McCaskey's way of getting him to stop badmouthing the team.

    Maybe it's a secret plot to get him in a specific place at a specific time.

    How? Because they're running out of them. :rofl2:

    Whose numbers are retired?
    Posted Feb 13, 2006

    Larry: In your article about Bronko Nagurski, you said that his was one of 13 numbers retired by the Bears. Who are the other 12?
    Brandon R.
    Orland Park, Illinois
    Brandon: In addition to Bronko Nagurski's No. 3, the 12 other players who've had their numbers retired by the Bears are George McAfee (5), George Halas (7), Willie Galimore (28), Walter Payton (34), Gale Sayers (40), Brian Piccolo (41), Sid Luckman (42), Dick Butkus (51), Bill Hewitt (56), Bill George (61), Bulldog Turner (66) and Red Grange (77). And one more Mike Ditka (89).

    If they retire Urlacher's #54 then the list should also include; Dan Hampton (99), Richard Dent (95), Mike Singletary (50), Gary Fencik (45), Steve McMichael (76), Otis Wilson (55), Dave Duerson (22) in memorium ......................and Bobby Douglass (10). :bah: Well he did set a rushing record for QBs.

    Urlacher won't return the call. No celebration this year.

    I am really hoping Brian returns the call, it would be a great missed opportunity. Should he not return the call HE is MUD.

    And Phil is the biggest reason why I think he ignores any invites to the Bears until he is gone.

    Should have waited about 5-10 yrs to do this, let things cool WAY down.
