ESPN: “Urlacher was the perfect Chicago Bear, a Grabowski not a Smith, long on toughness and short on diva.”

The blue collar, workaday, attitude of the Bears, and Brian Urlacher in particular, is part of what made me a Bears fan.

It’s tough to see one of your favorite players kicked to the curb.

Maybe the Arizona Cardinals will pick him up so he can kick the crap out of 49ers for a couple seasons, or maybe he’ll land with Minnesota or Green Bay? That would be pretty interesting.
