Tommie Harris jumps into Urlacher-Cutler fray

Man, we love Twitter. 

We still hate the name, but we love the technology.  It provides an instant line of communication between NFL players, fans, and the media, putting everyone in the same computerized room and allowing any two or more of them to have a conversation.

We’ve had some entertaining banter today with Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco (whom we find to be extremely entertaining and we wish him only the best this year . . . and we mean that even though it sounds sarcastic), and we just realized that Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris has sent us a “tweet,” too.

Regarding the contention by Vikings receiver Bobby Wade that Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher said during the offseason that new Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler is a “pussy,” Harris had this to say:  “[Urlacher] didn’t say that u guys are full of it and tell bobby wade will see about that…..”

Look, all we’re doing is reporting what Wade said on the air.  So even if some dude who uses his best contemplative senior picture (he should have stuck with the “ninth grade dorky smile mom plastered down my hair with a handful of spit” pose) at the Chicago Sun-Times thinks that it’s not newsworthy, it was — and it is.

Especially if it’s true.

Whether it is or isn’t true doesn’t matter for now.  The point is that a member of the Vikings offense said that the leader of the Bears defense said something extremely unflattering about the new leader of the Bears offense.

And if anyone doesn’t think that’s sufficiently intriguing to be mentioned, we recommend that you apply for a job in ESPN’s “which civil lawsuits involving pro athletes should we ignore” department.

    funny but false
    but hey tommy harris how many hards did AP have against you in the last 4 games??

    I listened to that podcast from the Vikings fan network, He sounds really cocky for someone that cant hold on to a punt, he is a 4th string receiver with a big mouth, and I hope he gets in against the bears and tries to hold on to a slant pass when he gets his head knocked off. He is just stirring shit because he is upset lord Favre wont be there. Im fairly confident Cutler would knock Wade’s head off as well.

    PUSSY PUSSY PUSSY PUSSY CUTLER IS A BIG PUSSY. I bet he cries about this too because he’s a big pussy. This is so funny that Bobby Wade brought this up. Takes attention off the Vikings and at most anyone can say is ” Bobby Wade is a liar”. But this could really tear there locker room up. I think the risk was worth the reward. Someone get Cuntler a carebear

  4. Brat Favre says: Jul 29, 2009 3:30 PM

    Tommie is just making sure that Cuntler is still gonna give him a hummer this evening. And no, not the SUV.

    Damn Florio…..You had to go and mention ESPN….Now ZombieRevolution has to once again mount his high horse and remind us again, how you should run a web site……Even though we are clicking on the words Rumor Mill, know the reasons why you fan the flames between opposing rivarlies,and take it all with a the proverbial grain of salt, i’m sure his sanctimonious ass will set the record straight……

    Mike,
    That’s actually my second-best contemplative senior picture. I save the best for my Match.com profile.

    Ahh, just when we thought things were getting a little boring, Bobby Wade busts out the old school (or is that high school?) treatment with “He said this about you…”. Perhaps Bobby is trying to deflect the media attention off of the Vikings. Trying..

  9. DarthPirate says: Jul 29, 2009 3:40 PM

    This is awesome.

  10. FinFan says: Jul 29, 2009 3:41 PM

    Tell Harris if Urlacher wasn’t a pussy he would step up and say it wasn’t true.!!!!

  11. Dewey Axewound says: Jul 29, 2009 3:41 PM

    I bet by Friday Lovie puts a cease & desist on this sh1t…
    Funny Wade that Wade would be such a rumor-mongering little b1tch, given that whenever he’s on the field he jumps at the sight of his own shadow, inevitably leading to a fumble…
    He may actually rival Florio as the tittering gossipy schoolgirl…
    It’s no wonder the Bears gave him the boot.
    And I’d bet fumbles to f@ggots that Minny cuts him before long, too.
    Then he’ll have all the time in the world to send in gossip scoops to TeenBeat and 17.
    (Oh yeah, Wade also said, “for the most part”, which is a PUS$Y way of saying he’s really full of sh1t).

  12. Idle Hands says: Jul 29, 2009 3:42 PM

    Tell Tommie he needs to learn how to spell with his illiterate ass………..”tell Bobby will see about that”?
    Yeah Tommie, maybe ‘We’ll’ all chip in and pay for some Spelling classes for you idiot!

  13. rick says: Jul 29, 2009 3:45 PM

    Harris, like Obama, wasn’t there…..gettin your buddies back is all well and good….just not as good as having all the info.

  14. *Legion* says: Jul 29, 2009 3:46 PM

    You can let it go over the Twitter name already.
    20 years ago, nobody thought two of the biggest tech companies in the world would be named things like “Google” and “Yahoo”. But we don’t even look at those names like they’re weird anymore.
    Time makes any name seem normal. Although it doesn’t make your book any better.

  15. WarLoxx says: Jul 29, 2009 3:49 PM

    Why didn’t I think of Twitter? They receive millions of dollars daily in free advertising.
    As for the other thing I hope Urlacher did say Cutler is a pussy. It will make for some good stories throughout the year if these guys get into a Bearfight.

  16. Bville says: Jul 29, 2009 3:51 PM

    Sure, this may be newsworthy in your mind Florio. You are single handedly trying to pussify this sports with your gossip columns.

  17. Dustin Chandler says: Jul 29, 2009 3:53 PM

    I like how Vikings fans think there team is good, because they won a shitty division by default.
    The Bears will smash you this year.

  18. orangecrushd says: Jul 29, 2009 3:56 PM

    Can’t wait to see if Hester gets involved. He’s comedy

  19. xgbx says: Jul 29, 2009 4:00 PM

    This is all a HUGE misunderstanding. Urlacher never said Cutler was a pussy. What he said was that Cutler’s mom is a whore.
    Fixed.

    As I said in the original Wade thread, I find it amusing that Bears fans are ripping on the former Bears WR saying that he can’t catch when he had more receptions last season than any WR on the Bears roster.

  22. Dewey Axewound says: Jul 29, 2009 4:15 PM

    @Idlehands
    It should read:
    ‘We’ll’ all chip in and pay for some Spelling classes for you, idiot!
    (Please note the comma that should come after “you” and before “idiot”…)
    Maybe they’ll have a two-for-one on those classes and you can brush up on your punctuation.
    The thing is, though, Tommie doesn’t really need to spell in order to disrupt offensive backfields. (He does have to stay healthy, though–something he’s struggled with).

    Line of the year. Good stuff.

  24. Rayce21 says: Jul 29, 2009 4:26 PM

    It would be great to see Adrien Peterson and Frank Gore get a friendly who has the most severe case of down syndrome contest. Go bears..If the Vikings could use their talent like they use their mouth to talk smack they might actually accomplish something this year.

  25. Jacukel says: Jul 29, 2009 4:31 PM

    Hey Bobby and Tarvaris,
    Can you guys send me some photos form the basement?

    I don’t even have to comment. You make yourself look idiotic.

    Urlacher’s denial:

    You’re welcome, Florio.

    @ Bville – the section of the site is called “Rumor Mill,” you know Gossip?? if you don’t like it don’t read it and please don’t comment on it.
    pussy.

  30. DeweyGeddaroom says: Jul 29, 2009 5:10 PM

    Urlacher’s been known to throw that word around. Accused his ex-girlfriend of raising his son as a p*ssy.

  31. Fetchez La Vache says: Jul 29, 2009 5:12 PM

    Interesting group of people that Tommie follows on Twitter. Looks like a whole bunch of strippers. One is “NaughtySexGirl”

  32. kostecky says: Jul 29, 2009 5:20 PM

    @ Kaboom Baby!!
    I concur… dumb bears fan

  33. bbq says: Jul 29, 2009 5:24 PM

    What’s the big deal here? Jay Cutler IS a pussy.
    I admire Urlacher’s honesty.

  34. kotapug says: Jul 29, 2009 5:30 PM

    I like how Vikings fans think there team is good, because they won a shitty division by default.
    The Bears will smash you this year.????????????????????????????????
    Smart statement, you team did not even win that shitty division so how does that makes the Bears better.I bet your picture makes Wades look like Denzel Washigton if your IQ reflects your looks.It never fails that a Bears fan wants to say there team is going to be the next best thing after a shitty season.Reality must not be a common thing in the small world you live in.Just becasue your QB is a pussy you dont have to cry about it and let everyone know you are one as well. Or do you have a man crush on Cutler and we hurt your feelings?

  35. diehardbearsfan says: Jul 29, 2009 5:41 PM

    So people have been saying for a while that the bears have no receivers. This guy couldn’t even make the roster. Good luck Wade, you should have a blast with those scrub qb’s throwing at ya.

  36. PaPaBear says: Jul 29, 2009 5:55 PM

    This is all just reading material that gets printed for internet traffic. It would be hilarious if a member of the press followed the writers of this wrap around and reported every detail of thier day, good and bad. Then, maybe, your ending comments about subscribing to ESPN’s policy might be valid. You writers need to get real about this ticky tacky crap you are choosing to shine the perverbial light on and report on the real issues.
    sick of the hersay reporting….

  37. december says: Jul 29, 2009 6:18 PM

    I’m sure everyone’s been called or has called someone worse things.
    This site is turning into a girl gossip magazine, but for “men”. LOL!

  38. Frank Rizzo says: Jul 29, 2009 6:37 PM

    Tommie Harris needs to shut the hell up, stay healthy, and play ball.

  39. ChicagoBear says: Aug 3, 2009 1:39 PM

    Bears will be NFC North Champions!
