Brian Urlacher And The War Of Words

Brian Urlacher used to garner a lot of respect from me from the way he played the game. I liked his versatility, his intensity, and the fact that he is just as dominant as a pro as he was in college.

That respect has since been overtaken by the foul stench of bullshit that spews from Mr. Urlacher's mouth. He's called out just about everyone one on the Chargers and has lost just about any credibility he once had. There's been so much trash talk between the Bears and the Chargers that its making my head spin, so credit Ryan Wilson for keeping up on all of it.

The latest choice quote comes from Urlacher in response to the Chargers calling Cedric Benson 'soft'

"It's guys I've never heard of (doing the) talking," Urlacher said. "I don't even know who these guys are (who are) saying this stuff. Maybe they just want to get their names in the paper. I'm just getting tired of hearing it, and I'm sure Rex (Grossman) and Cedric (Benson) are also."

Urlacher said the team will rally around any teammate, but he doesn't know why any of them are being verbally abused in the first place.

"Whenever something's said about any one of my teammates, everyone on our team will stand up for them and defend them," he said. "I don't know what we have to defend (though).

"(But) it doesn't surprise me. I've said some things in the past also. I guess anyone can be provoked, but I don't know who these guys are who are talking. I've never heard of them before; I've never seen them on the field."

Urlacher played three seasons under former Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, the Chargers' inside linebackers coach, who allegedly referred to Grossman as a "mental midget" in team meetings, a charge that Rivera has denied.

"I know Ron pretty well," Urlacher said. "I don't see those words coming out of his mouth, but who knows? I wasn't in their meetings."

Urlacher will become quite familiar with Mr. Shaun Phillips and the rest of the Chargers defense as they continue to dominate opponents this season.
