    I don't think this coaching staff will need the game to be slowed down for them. They more mentally up for the challenge of the speed of the game compared to last years mentally challenged crew.

    Urlacher doesn't even realize that he has indirectly insulted the coaching staff he so greatly adored last year.

    Real quick. If you didn't actually watch the segment go watch it and THEN comment. THEN you'll see the difference between how the press likes color and interpret things for us so they're all that much more dramatic. Watching tells to REALLY happened.

    The conversation was about a game between Cal and NU and Cal complaining about NU faking injuries which is ironic since THEY were accused of the same thing a couple of years ago. Brian's an analyst paid to comment on situations based on his own experiences as a player and that's what he did. He wasn't telling any deep dark secrets, throwing anyone under the bus, or seeking revenge on the Bears organization. It was said so matter-of-factly that it was like "everyone knows this so I'm really not telling anyone something new."

    And in that he's correct. Anyone who doesn't believe it goes on week after week in almost every NFL if the need arises is being really, really naïve. That tactics as old a the fumblerooski play. Player goes down and grabs knee, leg, crotch or whatever. Trainers come out cluck over him a bit then he gets up and walks off under his own power. He sits out the ONE play the rules require and checks right back in again! It happens so often it's never even questioned.

    So in REALITY now, not some sportswriters column which needs to be read, what did Brian Urlacher say that wasn't already common knowledge. He might just as well have admitted to hazing rookies for the 12 of his 13 season which he wasn't one. Come one people it means nothing. NOTHING.

    This story has been carried by every major sports news source today. It almost forces the NFL to look into this allegation by Urlacher that the Bears coaching staff did this. I don't care if all 32 teams do this. I do care if Urlacher is stupid enough to name the Bears this way. It's "diarrhea of the mouth" at least, and at worst it's being vindictive and trying to embarrass the Bears.

    Brian needs to go see the Whiz.

    Did you listen to it? If you did then you'll hear the way he delivered it which was almost with a shrug. He wasn't being vindictive or trying to embarrass the Bears. That the way all of those news sources you're reading are trying to make you think that maybe he did. Stop reading them and find a link to the comment itself then tell me what you heard.

    He simply commented on an issue that was already being discussed about Cal and NU. It's not like he brought it up separately and out of context like it was some deep dark secret. The NFL will do jack shit about it because the NFL already knows it's being done regularly and there's really nothing they can do about it unless they change that out for one play rule. And even then all a team needs to do is send in a sub they won't mind keeping out longer and he does the dive. He said it was never coached so who are they gonna investigate. Lovie? You think he'll confirm it? LOL

    Jeezus sportswriters make mountains out of ant farms and everyone wants to all of a sudden jump on a guy that a year ago they would have defended and have defended against all kinds of criticism over the year. You all need to stop believing in the slants these "major news sources" put on things. They aren't out to tell what really happened there out there to get viewers and sell newspapers and trauma drama sells way faster than good news. So if you all know this already why are you all so fucking willing to be lead by it like sheep. Geez guys, do a little analytical thinking on your own for a change instead of playing the "I read so it must be true" game.

    Soul, I did listen to it. If Brian is going to be in the limelight now, then he does need to filter what he says a bit better. I will always appreciate the years he gave us here in Chicago so I'm going to always have a respect for his on-field play. He's a Hall of Fame talent that gave everything for the Bears.

    He started to tick me off with the comment about not caring for us fans. But I figured the guy is going through a lot of "change" in his life, so we need to cut him some slack. I still feel that way.

    That being said, I still feel his comment on the Chicago Bears coaches having the players fake injuries was stupid on his part.

    I think that anything Urlacher says or does for a while will push fans the wrong way.

    His whole rant about hating the fans has driven many of them away
