At least Urlacher is honest.
I am sure he doesn’t mean all the fans, but he doesn’t particular care for the ones who like to boo. He also doesn’t like the media members who are critical of the team and head coach Lovie Smith.
Here is what he had to say on WFLD Channel 32 in Chicago courtesy of the Chicago Tribune.
“Two of the people I don’t care about: fans or media,” Urlacher said. “They can say what they want to about our head coach, about our players. … It does bother me. They don’t know what they’re talking about, obviously.
“I know there are a lot of experts in the media, a bunch of smart guys out there who know exactly what they’re talking about all the time. They don’t know what they’re talking about. Lovie is the head coach of this football team and hopefully will be for a long time.”
“Our crowd was pretty good today for the most part. They were loud for a minute there, the boos were really loud, which is always nice,” Urlacher said. “The only team in our division that gets booed at home is us. It’s unbelievable to me.
He is trying to stand up for his coach and Urlacher has been in the NFL long enough he can get away with these type of comments and no one will really say anything.
The facts are the Bears started 7-1 and are now on the verge of not making the playoffs. When that happens people will boo and be critical of the team.
Where I disagree with Urlacher is just because someone is critical of the team or coach doesn’t mean they don’t know what they are talking about. That is just a normal lazy response when you don’t like what you are hearing.
He isn’t fooling anyone, he cares.
