All I know is that if the Vikings pick HIM up for the 5.5 mil price he wants after cutting Winfield then fark YOU SPEILMAN.

Now if we could get him for 2.5 to 3 mil? Now we talkin.

I'm not saying he wasn't good in his time, but he was a whiny biatch. His little temper tantrums with the media where he would pout like an 8-year-old were well documented and anyone who fails to acknowledge that is being willfully ignorant.

dude couldn't  t year. then got hurt  the last game.  football is a cruel mistress.  when your skills go, you are done.

Is he really expecting some team to pay him 11 mil on a two year deal?  did he learn nothing from kreutz?
 
2013-03-21 09:04:52 AM
Would have been worth the one year / $3.5 mil for him to mentor new linebackers. Take Briggs out of the equation, and their remaining linebackers have started (I think) one game... combined.

They didn't re-sign an old slow guy, saved themselves cap room in the process, and this is a bad thing?

Good. Save your sentimental late-career contracts for uncapped sports like baseball. I have mad respect for teams that take the economics of salary cap sports seriously. Paying for nostalgia, paying for the appearance of championship contention when you have no chance, and paying way above market value because a hyperactive media/fanbase has a crush on a player are just a few of my sports pet peeves.
 
2013-03-21 09:33:08 AM
13 years is a heckuva career.  He's had a great run.  But injuries have slowed him down to the point where he's not an elite player anymore.  So, asking for elite player money is a reach, at best.  I'm sad to see him go, but it's time.  It's time.  Everybody leaves at some point.  I'll just shelve the Urlacher jersey until he retires!

Stick a fork in him; he's done. Unless he gets on some of that deer antler. And by deer antler I mean roids.
 
2013-03-21 09:37:15 AM
It's probably for the best. He'll always be a legend in Chicago but it was time to move on. It was painful to watch the dude run last year.

Just hoping he doesn't end up with a division rival.

That, and it's the flip side of free agency.  I have no problem with players trying to maximize the money they make during their playing career.  I DO have a problem when they pull out the stops in order to land a huge contract and then don't want to participate in workouts or keep themselves in shape.

hamstring problem isn't a broken leg, or two for that matter.  I sent him some Moroccan oil for his hair though, we should be good to go there.

My favorite Urlacher memory was in a game they played in Atlanta.  I think this information is correct, but I just remember these two plays, so if the years are off, go suck a lemon.

Vick was the Falcons new starting QB, it was his second year, and he already was the talk of the league.

The talk was "Could Urlacher sack Vick?"

In the 1st quarter, Urlacher came on a blitz, jumped over the running back, landed, and put pressure/sacked Vick (forgot which one).  Urlacher 1, Vick 0.

Later on, Vick escapes from the pocket, uh oh...then Urlacher CHASES him from behind and trips him up resulting in only a 2-3 yard gain.

I have a lot of good Urlacher memories, and it is sad to see him go, but he is getting old, and the league is getting younger.  The Bears got exposed last year with young, mobile QBs, and he can't chase them down anymore like he used to.

What the Bears need to get to the Super Bowl again is a humble, level-headed quarterback like Jim McMahon.

I think it is a bit short-sighted on Management's part to let Urlacher leave in this manner.  Sure he is definitely not the player he once was.  However, to let a player with as much equity as Urlacher has be dumped unceremoniously like this sends a message to the team and future prospects.  I think Urlacher deserved to retire a Bear.

So he wanted an extra million, big deal.  Just cut the whole offensive line.  It's not like they can't be replaced by some turnstiles from the L-train anyway.  For shame.

I like Brandon Marshall, whom I think the title refers to in part. His DBT therapy seems to be working for him. Good for him for getting treatment for a mental illness. I appreciate that he's open about it, too.

If I were Jay Cutler I'd have walked away from my contract a long time ago.  That guy is going to get knocked retarded before he's 30 playing on the Bears.

Hate to see him go, buy love to watch him leave.

Bears fan since 84', would have been sooner but I wasn't sentient enough before that year, lucky for me they were great the next year.

But it's been a down few decades.

The Payton manning Super Bowl, my grand parents were killed in a car accident that day.  Right in the middle of the game, so when the bears lost I didn't really care.

Thanks grandma and grandpa, you were always looking out for me

David Haugh in the Trib wrote an interesting article today about it, and made an interesting point. He said that his sources told him that Cutler told management that he wanted to be team leader, and that with Urlacher there it made it harder. so thats why management lowballed him. it's an interesting thought.

Just a miserable Raiders fan stuck in Wisco. I grew up watching Packers games and still watch them with friends but don't outwardly cheer for them. When they win, it's good for business. Once they rack up a losing season then I'll bust out the Majkowski jersey.

As for not liking the fans...I've had quite a number of good times at Lambeau, but it's a few of the local knobs who ruin the bunch - the ones that bring up the past any time the words "green" "bay" or "packers" are brought up in any way shape or form during a conversation. The type who's whole week of productivity and attitude will teeter on the outcome of Sunday's game.  Every team has these fans, I know.  Add alcohol, which is every day in Wisconsin, and the Green Bay boasting is even worse.  After a loss, the excuses flow like Milwaukee's Best out of a keg in the middle of a corn field.  After a win, may as well size up those Super Bowl rings because the team's unstoppable.

Thanks for the memories, Urlacher. Hope you end up making some cash somewhere, but as far as I'm concerned those 54 jerseys are here to stay in Soldier Field.

Losing Nick Roach hurts, though. Hope the Bears can improve this year, we'll see what Trestman can do.

Sorry, didn't see this post before my previous one.  Thank you for confirming your lack of mental acuity.

///Douchebags ruin everything for everyone, sorry on behalf of semi-sane Packers fans.  At least your team has a seemingly competent GM now and your team is in the same division as the Chiefs, so you've got that going for you, which is nice.

I think the fact that Winfield hasn't entertained any other offers (or hasn't been offered anything) suggests that it may have been the right move. They're talking of bringing him back. I still don't like how it went down, if what was reported is true.

Urlacher is better than any other option this year, including the draft. His knowledge of the defense is somewhat diminished with the new head coach in Chicago, but he can still provide insight into the player's tendencies. A big reason he might not end up in Minnesota is they are only 6 million under the cap and still have a rookie class to sign, including possibly two first round picks.

Semi-tangential and not like the Mariners would approach the cap if baseball had one, but watching Jr. Griffey have to motor a Rascal to home plate to take three languid hacks at the baseball in his twilight stint with the M's convinced me that sentimentality contracts are just a horrible idea. Don't sully those lovely memories with the cold reality of senior citizenship.
 
2013-03-21 11:46:52 AM
He was fun to watch.  Even though I don't WANT people to get hurt (football karma happens when you cheer for it), I really liked it when he broke his hand the other year.

/Packers fan.
 
2013-03-21 11:47:06 AM
Urlacher is done, and like the Rams, it seems that the Bears are in for a bit of a fall this season.  They've subtracted way more than they can add from the draft.  Urlacher was a lot like Ray Lewis, and it was painfully obvious in the game against Seattle.  During their last drive, Urlacher was several steps behind and often out of position.  On one or two plays, he got steamrolled.  He is pretty much finished, and has had too many surgeries to be able for any team to pick him up objectively.

\in other words, he'll be a Raider soon
