Would Jay Cutler and Brian Urlacher be toted as best if they won the Super Bowl?
Yes, with the exception of Eli Manning, the best quarterback every offseason is the guy who won the Super Bowl. Brady and Manning are constants, but look at what winning the big one has done for Roethlisberger, Brees, and Rodgers. It seems to give them the jump from good to elite. If the Cowboys or Rams couldnt win it though, I would like to see the Bears go all the way, Cutler deserves it after all the crap he's gotten and I've always liked Urlacher.
How much is a Brian Urlacher autographed picture worth?
I'll give you a nickel. I need something to wipe with.
Seriously, you ought to study this on e-bay and sports memorabilia sites first, it's probably worth a fair amount, $50 or more maybe framed. Unframed Urlachers go for as little as $25 to $30 in pristine condition. Is it addressed to anyone or does it have a particular handwritten message on it? If so, that actually devalues it.
Is Brian Urlacher taking a page from the TO hand book?
Urlacher would not look right in anything other than a Bears jersey. But, this is a business, so who knows what will happen. I don't see any reason why I wouldn't take him at his word, which is that he wants to remain in Chicago. Other than a handful of teams (Pats, Colts, Chargers), the NFL has become an extremely fickle league. The Bears were in the Super Bowl just 2 years ago. This situation kinda reminds me of Strahan last season. He thought about retirement, though most people believed he was just holding out for more money (which he still might have been). Nobody picked the Giants to do anything. They had a terrible second half the prior season, backed into the playoffs and lost to Philly in the first round, then Tiki retired, they don't pick up any big free agents, they hire a new defensive coordinator and then the Strahan thing. And what happened? They won the Super Bowl. Get them a good QB, and who knows what the Bears could do next season? I doubt that Urlacher would want out because he doesn't think the Bears can win.
But if they want to trade him to the G-men, that would be cool with me. =P
Why does everyone think Brian Urlacher is so good?
Because he is good. He played safety in High School so he brings the pass-covering ability to the Middle Linebacker position. In his beginning seasons, he was the first LB to become a threat at both the run and pass. And as many people say, he is fast. It's true, he can stare down and just take out Michael Vick with no problem. And he's an inspiration. He led the team huddle talks that got Chicago the Victory in Arizona. And he stipped the ball from Edgerin James (who used to never fumble). So yeah, he's good. Some say he will go into the Hall of Fame his first year. That's L.T. and Junior Seau good. But don't worry, your boy Ray Lewis might get into the HoF, someday.
this is a coin flip. when i used to play fantasy with IDPs, i would make my decision by asking myself "if either one of them got a pick or recovered a fumble, which would be more likely to return it for a TD?" OR i'd ask "if there's a fumble on the ground/tipped ball in the air, which one wold be more likely to get the ball?" i would say Urlacher. truth is, these IDP decisions rarely matter that much, and this is a bigger crapshoot than picking offensive players. i'd just drop one of them so i don't have to make a decision every week
