    Urlacher's career started going downhill after he spent one night in Paris.

    Re: Gale Sayers rips Bears.....

    I don't understand this media "outrage". I didn't see it as Sayers ripping the Bears...just giving his opinion on where they are right now.

    "Cutler hasn't done the job," Sayers said. "[Linebacker Brian] Urlacher, I don't know how good he's going to be coming back. He's 33 years old. They need a couple wide receivers, a couple defensive backs. They haven't done a good job.
    "If [head coach] Lovie [Smith] doesn't do it this year, I think he's gone. He had a good team the Super Bowl year. Nothing came together for him the last couple years."
    Cutler didn't do the job last year. They do need a couple receivers. They do need a couple of defensive backs. Urlacher is coming off an injury at the age of 33. There really isn't anything controversial here.

    Did he say anything untrue?

    I think Sayers is just laying out facts. Don't see anything inflamatory.

    .
    Going to agree with you, Sayers didn't say anything wrong.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Re: Gale Sayers rips Bears.....

    Bill Cosby => critical of young African Americans' "behavior"
    Gayle Sayers => critical of Bears

    Good parallel?

    Both told the truth (from their perspective). Both were criticized from within the "organization", but were appreciated and understood from those not as close to it.

    You are just jealous because Brian has actually played in a Super Bowl.

    Re: Gale Sayers rips Bears.....

    I agree that everything he said was true....but why say it? Everybody else is already saying it and they know it. Why does Gale Sayers think he has the power to criticize the team when he himself never played on a team worth a darn?! That is like me golfing and hitting my tee shot OB. Than the next guy hits it in the water and I say, "boy that shot was awful." While it may be true, should I really be talking?

    Re: Gale Sayers rips Bears.....

    I don't have a problem with what Sayers has said. He's right. The Bears haven't done a good job. They haven't been successful the last 3 years.

    I do have a problem with how he said. Basically saying people are old and sucks? Come on, be better than that. I mean, 45 years after you entered the league and runners today are still being compared to you. You need to stop being bitter and come to terms with the fact that your career was very unfortunately cut short.

    I don't have a problem with Urlacher coming to the defense of his team and teammates.

    I do have a problem that Urlacher went personal in his comments with the question "How many championships did Gale Sayers win?" The answer to that question isn't zero. The answer to that question is Sayers won as many championships as you have Mr. Urlacher.

    My suggestion is everyone should just shut the **** up.

    Re: Gale Sayers rips Bears.....

    Urlacher is so touchy around the press. He lives in a fantasy world where if you are a fan you have to support the team unequivocally and he thinks the media should do the same. He's still po'd about the papers running the details of his divorce and his subsequent fling with Paris. All Sayers did was answer a fair question. The guy doesn't mince words.
