    Being a douche seems to work for him. I'm not as fond of him as I used to be.

    I cannot be bothered to look up the quote, but BU KNEW it would end this way, after he blackmailed the team a few years ago to get another extension he said that when a players time is up the team will cut you, no questions asked, and that's why he threatened to retire if they didn't extend him.

    Cannot have it both ways Brian.


    I also agree there should be no rush to "honor" him, not it shouldn't happen anytime soon. He was a great player on the team, but got that team 0 championships, he's not going to get his # retired, and he's a boarderline HoF'r, I think he shoudl get in, but I've heard analysts question if he was good enough, he is no Ditka, Butkus, Payton, etc.

    Urlacher and George McCaskey seem to be beginning the process of mending some fences here. That's a good thing, not a bad thing. All of this will pass and we'll have good memories of all the years Brian Urlacher gave us as fans. The guy played with a lot of emotion and passion. I'm not completely surprised that he was emotional about the way his career ended. That's not saying Brian is right or wrong. Just that I can understand it. If the worst thing Brian ever does is grouch a bit about his former boss (Emery) then he'll have a blessed retirement. I'm sure he's not the only one of us who has blown a gasket about an ex-boss. The guy was a good player for us for many years. Let's just leave it at that. If they want to honor him someday, hey, more power to them. I think that's a class act by the Bears.
