Screw Brian Urlacher.$3.95 million to play for 16 weeks a year. I won't make $3.95 million in my whole life.
Like so many other professional athletes; What a cry baby.
If The Bears were smart they would dump his whiney ass right now.

$3.95 million to play sports is a lot of money and yes everyone is overpaid, but let's put that aside.

$3.95 million for the player of Urlacher's status and accomplishments is just too low...he deserves much more when compared to the rest of the league ...again, they all deserve significantly less but such is life.

I cannot for the life of me understand why Urlacher is so hellbent on an extension, considering he is a 31 year old in a young man's league.

We all know why he wants the extension------ because $$$ is not guaranteed in the NFL and he wants to get as much as he can before his body totally falls apart. Which may be earlier than we all expect or anticipate......I think Brian Urlacher's best days in Chicago are already in the past!

Then your dumba$$ pay him more.
He is overrated and should be traded along with grossman and benson, but they all suck and no one wants them.
Fire angelo and let lovie know this is his last year to turn these cry babies around.
What a bunch of losers.

The Bears would be fools to extend the contract of an over-the-hill LB coming off of neck surgery. He signed a deal and should live with it.

Brian -- boo (expletive) hoo.

A lot of us idiots who enjoy watching football have REAL JOBS with NO guarantees, no contracts and the idea of an EXTENSION is a foreign concept.

Why can't you and your cry-baby union buds just play the friggin game under the GENEROUS contracts you have! In other words, be MEN and HONOR your COMMITMENTS!

As I once yelled at a Springsteen concert when he started babbling political crap -- "Just shut the (expletive) up and PLAY!

The point is that he signed a contract through 2011... don't sign a long-term deal if you are going to cry about it halfway through...

Sounds like he knows his best time is past and he just wants to squeeze all the money he can out of the remaining time he has left. If he thought he was going to be playing as well in 2011 as he has recently, he'd be smarter to wait and resign then for a lot more money.

Bears should stick on this one... play the cards they've been dealt.

All pro team owners should get together and get all these contracts
back to more sensible situation,fans are tired of being beat up at the ticket office.
Fans will support their team reguardless of who the athelete is that`s playing.Reasonable salaries along with reasonable ticket prices is the future of pro sport`s even though the athlete`s and their agents don`t know it yet.
OWNERS must take a stand!!!!

That's why - he is over the hill and wants to get as much as he can. When his present contract expires he'll be 35 and in the valley, never mind over the hill.

Once again Mr. Urlacher shows his lack of leadership and his crybaby mentality. Please call Mr. Jordan to find out how a "REAL" superstar should act.

Urlacher stays home to soak his head and pound sand.
