Urlacher raves about "awesome" Cutler

Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher caused a stir last season when he said he hated the way the team’s identity had changed under new quarterback Jay Cutler. But now Urlacher is singing Cutler’s praises.

Jay’s awesome,” Urlacher said on a conference call for Bears fans. “He throws the ball as well as any quarterback in the NFL. If we can protect him–which I think we will do–I think he’s going to have a great year.”

Maybe Urlacher has been impressed with the way Cutler looks in Mike Martz’s offense, or maybe Urlacher just knows the Bears are married to Cutler and figures he might as well give his teammate a public vote of confidence. Either way, Urlacher says he’s excited to see what Cutler can do this year.

And Urlacher is also excited about seeing what he himself can do after missing 15 games last season.

“I don’t like being on the sideline,” Urlacher said. “It was horrible. It was very frustrating. After the offseason I had last year, I felt great coming into the season. To get hurt in the first game like that was very disappointing.”

If Urlacher felt great about his personal readiness going into last season, he seems to feel great about the team’s readiness heading into this season.

“The OTAs have not been this much fun for me since I’ve been here,” he said. “I think it’s because we’re anxious to get back on the field.”

    Chandler Bing is the worst QB in the NFC North…

    Urlacher’s wrist was injured for other reasons….

    Lets all hope so, or else the bears are gonna have a Fire sale next year with a house cleaning too.

    “Jay’s awesome,” Urlacher said on a conference call for Bears fans.
    Urlacher went on to write hundreds and hundreds of times in his loose leaf spiral notebook …”Brian Cutler, Mrs. Brian Cutler, Brian Urlacher-Cutler, Mrs. Cutler, Mr. and Mrs. Jay Cutler, etc.”

    Watch tape of Cutler last year in the redzone Urlacher. One of the best arms in the league? LMFAO!!
    You said it best yourself Brian, Jay’s a PUSSY!!

  7. CanadianVikingFan says: Jun 8, 2010 3:01 PM

    Wow, you delete my post because I posted what you guys posted here before.
    “Bobby Wade says Urlacher thinks Cutler is a pussy.”
    You guys are douchebags.

  8. cadillacjosh says: Jun 8, 2010 3:01 PM

    Its nice to see support and comfortableness with the team, even if its only a surface thing.

  9. brownsfn says: Jun 8, 2010 3:06 PM

    HAHAHAHHAHAHA…awesome and Cutler don’t go in the same sentence unless interception is included…just saying…

  10. BLeedGreeN4Life says: Jun 8, 2010 3:13 PM

    wait.. jay cutler?

  11. claytonbigsby says: Jun 8, 2010 3:13 PM

    It is tough to tell whether Urlacher is being honest or sarcastic in his assessment

  12. Spiny Norman says: Jun 8, 2010 3:21 PM

    Is it possible that Brian Urlacher is even stupider than Jay Cutler?

  13. ChicagoJo says: Jun 8, 2010 3:22 PM

    “If Urlacher felt great about his personal readiness going into last season, he seems to feel great about the team’s readiness heading into this season.”
    What does this sentence mean? Why would you phrase something that way? Seriously, you post like 10 things a day can’t you find a more clear and concise way to write? Bushleague, Florio (or Michael David Smith, whoever that is)

  14. Ilovefoolsball says: Jun 8, 2010 3:37 PM

    Cutler: overrated
    Urlacher:over the hill

    I’d mock your QB, but off the top of my head, I can’t even remember who it is, now that the Quinn experiment has failed utterly, too.
    Your accomplishments this past decade include beating the Steelers–once.

    And what else? Having Drew Carey for a fan?
    Just as a private doesn’t give orders to a general, a fan of a team that sucks as bad as the Browns shouldn’t be allowed to comment on any team other than the Clowns–in fact, you should have a court-issued gag order to that effect. STFU.

    In other news, Jay Cutler recently parted ways with about 3 million dollars and the memo on the check said “ass kissing payment to bald guy.”

    @ dewey axewood
    *newsflash*. The Browns have just as much history as the bears..and almost as many hall of gamers… Sure we are on a 10 year skid but that’s what makes us the best fan base in football because we never give up on our team no matter what our record is… we sell out with a 1-11 record last year…that’s impressive… Let’s see if the bears sell out this year when your 2-8…so here’s to 5-11 seasons for both of us…see I have no crazy dream that my team is better than they actually are like yourself…enjoy…

  26. SomeFans says: Jun 8, 2010 5:20 PM

    Geez dewey…. chillax or you’ll really have a hard time watching/enjoying da Bears this season.
    Not expecting much from them… but you’ll always have your “proud history” to fall back on.

  27. Mike Daly says: Jun 8, 2010 5:21 PM

    I’ll buy the praise of Cutler when I see him actually win more than seven games and actually play for wins instead of for volume stats – when Drew Brees stopped playing for volume stats, he starting winning.

  28. MattR says: Jun 8, 2010 5:24 PM

    Sorry brownsfn, these Cleveland Browns have exactly 11 years of history. Despite the NFL giving you the name, you are not the same franchise as the one that Jim Brown played for.

  29. Ghost Peppers says: Jun 8, 2010 5:26 PM

    Negative brownsdouche….we will never suck as bad as your team you slapdick.
    And what does selling out have anything to do with having a winning franchise? Just ask the Cubs fans that question. See the difference between the Bears and the Browns is one thing. We don’t accept losing in this city. To us, 7-9 was a complete failure last year. To the Brown, 7-9 is a sign of hope and the town throws a parade for their efforts. We chop necks or we add big name players that can help this franchise get back to the Superbowl.
    There is no hope for your franchise. You will always be losers. And by your statements, It doesn’t seem like you care.
    Browns will never sniff 8-8 in this new decade.

  30. El Perro says: Jun 8, 2010 5:26 PM

    Eh?? I wonder what he thought of Orton?… You know, a guy who’s actually won games!!!

  31. Dewey Axewoond says: Jun 8, 2010 5:29 PM

    @browsnfn,
    I know misery loves company and everything, but you’re barking up the wrong tree here–go find a Lions fan.
    Bears were last North team to represent in the SB, we’ll be the next ones back, too.
    Maybe not this year, or even next–but unlike your franchise/fanbase, we don’t simply accept losing with a mere shrug…maybe that’s why you’ve been on a decade-long skid to begin with.

  32. MEDTXPACK says: Jun 8, 2010 5:31 PM

    DA BEARS STILL SUCK.
    Their hype has always fallen short…

  33. SmackDaPack says: Jun 8, 2010 5:43 PM

    All these Packers fans piling on a QB who is a self important jerk, and throws a bunch of INTs. God help them if he wins one Superbowl in a hundred year career, they will seem like hypocrites.

  34. brownsfn says: Jun 8, 2010 5:44 PM

    Say what you will …the bears still SUCK…

  35. ozzie41 says: Jun 8, 2010 5:53 PM

    DEWEY!! You watch them on tv and buy shit with their logo on it!! Loser…Dick

  36. Spiny Norman says: Jun 8, 2010 5:55 PM

    I had to google Chandler Bing, but it was well worth the time!

  38. edgy1957 says: Jun 8, 2010 8:17 PM

    I don’t think that BU is off when he praises Cutler’s arm because let’s face it, it’s live BUT that’s not the point with him. It’s the section of his body above his neck that’s the problem.

  39. Jabberwocky says: Jun 8, 2010 11:12 PM

    Dewey and other Bear fans- check out how Brownsfn doesn’t actually post on Browns’ stories. He epitomizes of what being a troll is all about.
    “Their hype has always fallen short…”
    Are you serious? They’ve won 9 championships, one SB, and one other appearance. Have you been under a rock for the past 30 years?

  40. dlodown1 says: Jun 8, 2010 11:48 PM

    Who is Chandler Bing?

  41. bearskillyou says: Jun 9, 2010 2:49 PM

    @spiny norman hahaha you are a joke. Stupider is not a word, you moron. I guess we know who is stupid now don’t we?
