Predictably, Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher denies telling Vikings receiver Bobby Wade that Urlacher believes Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is a “pussy.”
“Oh please. I don’t think I would ever say that about one of my
teammates,” Urlacher told the Chicago Tribune. “Look, Bobby Wade’s a friend of
mine. He’s trying to get things going before training camp. That’s just
Bobby being Bobby. I’m pretty sure Jay knows I wouldn’t say that about
But Urlacher’s response isn’t all that convincing. How in the world can he call Bobby Wade a “friend of mine” when Wade is basically telling a bald-faced lie about the bald-headed linebacker?
Per the Tribune, Wade already has apologized to Urlacher. From our perspective, the key question is whether Wade apologized for sharing an actual statement that had been made between friends, or for flat-out making something up that one friend supposedly said to another one.
Meanwhile, Urlacher also denies a report from WSCR-AM in Chicago that he had to be restrained from attacking Cutler during offseason workouts.
“If anything, I called him a few names for zipping balls by my head with
that cannon he has,” Urlacher said. “Me having to be restrained? That’s funny.”
And this story will have truly come full circle if one of the “names” Urlacher called Cutler was the name that got this whole thing started earlier today.
