Former Chicago Bears linebackers and current Fox Sports 1 football analyst Brian Urlacher comes off as is he wasn’t quite ready to call it a career from football. The former leader of great Bears defenses even admitted that he would be mad if the Bears won the Super Bowl without him, so these comments directed towards Russell Wilson just seem like another case of bitterness.
Urlacher was talking with Foxsports.com and let it be known that he feels Wilson is the real reason why he is currently retired.
“Russell, I’m not sure if you know this or not, but you ended my career basically last year on that third down in overtime,” Urlacher said, via FoxSports.com. ”You were rolling out, I was trying to chase you. Trying to chase you down I popped my hamstring and missed the last four games of the season. You ended it.”
It’ll be interesting as the season goes on to see what other comments come from Urlacher. At the very least, he seems very candid an open about whatever he feels.
