To say that Brian Urlacher still wants to be on the Chicago Bears‘ roster is a gross understatement. For the first time since 1999, Urlacher won’t be heading to Chicago’s training camp this offseason and the boredom of retirement is starting to set in. Therefore, No. 54 is starting to show his true colors when it comes to the franchise that made him famous.
As you probably already know, Urlacher never won a Super Bowl Title while in the Windy City and the closest he came to the Lombardi Trophy in his 13-year NFL career was in Super Bowl XLI when the Bears were defeated by Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. However, that is the last time that the Bears played on Super Sunday and Urlacher would like to keep it that way:
“I’ve got a lot of friends on the team, but I don’t want them to win the Super Bowl without me.”
That right there is the definition of a selfish competitor. It’s rather obvious that the middle linebacker is still sour over the fact that the Bears didn’t offer him a contract this offseason.
I don’t want to hear Urlacher complain and hold the current team back with his asinine guilt tripping — save it, Brian. To be honest, I hope the Bears wind up hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in February, just so the Monsters of the Midway can rub it in Urlacher’s face. I fully understand the competitive edge that ‘Lach still has, but he should wish the Bears nothing but the best instead of always making the story about him.
