    Originally there was gossip that Urlacher would retire from injury if not given a new contract.

    But that appears not to be the case and he just wants another contract.


    updates from ROTO:

    Im not going to agree with this. If anyone knows me from KFFL then you know my passion for Urlacher.

    But this is just not the case anymore. His body is severaly damaged and he has multiple medical problems that might cause him to retire in the very near future.

    Urlacher is a great player and one of the best LBs in the game but you gotta wonder if he would succeed in a defense without being next to a guy like the caliber of Lance Briggs.

    I think Briggs and Urlacher go together like peanut butter and jelly

    Huh? Urlachers best years were before Briggs arrived. Briggs is the overrated one, not Urlacher, evne if he is injured goods at this point.

    Yep-it all goes back to Square 1-you win as a TEAM because ALL elements have to work.(Unlike what ESPN and all of the talking-head media want you to believe-when they only single out the selective few to praise/criticize when teams win/lose) And even more importantly, if even some of your personnel can't grasp your scheme, you're in deep doo-doo.

    Also-the Bears have alot of talent on that D that's understood and grasped Lovie's Cover 2 scheme(i.e. Vasher, Tillman, Tommie Harris, their fast DEs, etc) When Vasher, Harris, et al went down last year, you saw how BAD their D started to look.

    Two seasons ago Urlacher was a beat, now he sucks? He had a crappy year, so did his team. I'd take Urlacher on this team any day.

    The Chicago D DID finish the year strong, FWIW. At season's end, they were back to their Lovie school-ball hawking ways.

    This D may be a bit overrated(especially considering they're in the putrid NFCN), but nonetheless-Lovie and Jerry Angelo have done an outstanding job picking players that fit and understand Lovie's Cover 2 scheme.

    A banged up Urlacher is STILL tons better than any healthy LB we have on the roster right now - yes,That includes Adalius Thomas.

    Urlacher can play with one leg and still be a force but when healthy its not even close to who is the best LB is and his counterpart Briggs is in the top 5 as well.

    If Chicago ever had a good QB, another 1 above average receiver like Berrian was and another 1 good player in that secondary that team would be unstoppable.

    I am sure Chicago also looks early for a RB in the draft as well

    I think he's getting paid adequately for a banged up body. he got a good contract, he should honor it.

    and no i'm not.

    ESPN 1000 in Chicago predicted the Pats trade draft pick(s) for Urlacher...and that the Bears would be picking 7th overall.
