Former Chicago Bears linebacker (and now current analyst for Fox Sports One) Brian Urlacher is quite the opinionated fellow, recently suggesting that he’d be mad if his former team ended up winning a Super Bowl.
Granted, that was a bit tongue and cheek, though, his most recent comments directed towards Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson aren’t as friendly.
The Pro Bowl linebacker told Fox Sports (via CBS) that it was Wilson who ended Urlacher’s career prematurely:
During an interview with Wilson on Wednesday, Urlacher credited — or blamed, depending on your point of view — the second-year quarterback for ending his 13-year career.
“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.”
Um, what type of logic is that?
So he was doing his job – you were doing your job. You were injured in a non-contact play yet it’s his fault?
