"Urlacher huffs,puffs to TD" ???

Under those windy frigid conditions why the hell wouldn't he ?

Is this writer implying that he's out of shape ? He's not a running back,wide receiver or kick return specialist to begin with. He's an incredible middle linebacker, who under extremely adverse conditions, picked off an interception from one of the greatest QBs in history, and ran it back 85 yards for a TD.
I'd like to see this "sports-writer"
do that. DUH. Some of these "journalists "(?) need to be stuffed and mounted.

Shades of a couple of years ago where the defense controlled the game and Orton managed to not give up the ball like you-know-who does.

Definitely true. When Orton could out-play Favre, especially on a day like yesterday, he definitely deserves another look.

I totally agree when i read Urlacher huffs and puffs it got under my skin everyone wants to lead you to belive that Urlacher is getting out of shape losing his spark whatever. When you run as fast as he does in -1 degree weather of course you are going to be out of breath. He has speed that any ordinary Middle Linebacker doesn't actually most nfl players.

Loved it, Brian showed all the doubters what the real fans knew; he is pro bowl pro bono. I hope he takes that week in February and remembers those of us who support the Bears, good or bad, knew he played his heart out all year long.

Fred Wilson? You will be lucky to be mentioned in the same sentence as the man from New Mex 5 years from now.

Chicago owes a big thanks to Mr. Urlacher, Mr. Briggs, Mr. Anderson, Mr. Tillman, Mr, Grossman, Mr. HEster, Mr. Muhammed,and Mr. Berrian for a great year.

When that clown tony Kornheiser said two weeks ago we were watching the rise of the Vikings and the fall of the Bears he was reading from a scripr.

Thanks guys, those of us who watch all year know that it was dumb luck and dumb play calling, not dumb play that cost us. New England will have the last word. IT will not be "wow, Fred Wilson is the man.
