Brian Urlacher on Tebow: “He’s a good running back”

Chicago Bears v Denver Broncos Getty Images

The Bears’ defensive plan worked for three quarters.

Heck, it even worked for most of the fourth quarter. Tim Tebow and the Broncos punted three times with only one first down in the in their first three drives of the fourth quarter.

Usually, three drives is all you’re going to get in a quarter. But the Broncos defense and Marion Barber helped the Broncos get two more, and Tebow helped make the Bears pay. After the game, the Bears defense was stunned and seemingly not ready to give Tebow his due.

Asked for his thoughts on Tebow after the game, Brian Urlacher was succinct.

“He’s a good running back, man. He runs the ball well,” Urlacher said.

The Bears mostly kept Tebow’s running in check; he had 49 rushing yards. It was Tebow’s 18 completions in the fourth quarter and overtime that really hurt Chicago.

Not bad for a running back.

    No offense to Tebow, but there are 31 other QB’s in the NFL that win that game, Caleb Hanie being the exception.

    Can somebody PLEASE beat Tebow and then publicly thank Jesus afterward?

  3. jimmysee says: Dec 11, 2011 10:37 PM

    Chicago sports talk radio must be brutal tonight.

  4. aceboogie57 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:38 PM

    Say what you want about Tebow, the kid is a winner

  5. narrabeen23 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:38 PM

    the obvious follow-up question: “Mr. Urlacher, how does it feel to let a RB beat you with his arm down the stretch?”

  6. tebowsgonnagitya says: Dec 11, 2011 10:38 PM

    Riverdanceboy couldn’t stop him… shut up LOSER

  7. rpiotr01 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:39 PM

    Maybe at some point teams will start showing Denver some respect and really kick the crap out of them instead of belittling or trying to discredit them.

  8. rbrow018 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:39 PM

    Unfortunely Brian, your running back wasn’t that good which means we have to put up with one more week of this Tebowmania garbage

  9. jaggedmark says: Dec 11, 2011 10:39 PM

    Can’t take shots when you lose, Brian. It looks and sounds weak.

  10. silverbuffalo says: Dec 11, 2011 10:39 PM

    Tebow tattoo time

  11. stealthjunk says: Dec 11, 2011 10:40 PM

    Brian, take those sour grapes out of your mouth. They make you look pathetic.

  12. mrturophile says: Dec 11, 2011 10:40 PM

    Eh, Mr. Urlacher still thinks the Bears are better than the Packers, too. Even though the Packers have beaten the Bears three times this calendar year already. With a fourth beating to come in two weeks.

  13. worldatlarge1 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:41 PM

    If anyone knows great running backs, it’s Urlacher, with all the great running play on his te…

    Nevermind

  14. eknirb says: Dec 11, 2011 10:41 PM

    sour grapes, dude. you lost.

  15. eaglesnoles05 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:41 PM

    Way to lose graciously, Urls. Lame zing, he threw ALL OVER you guys.

  16. fnslidevick says: Dec 11, 2011 10:42 PM

    I smell a hater

  17. nogoodell says: Dec 11, 2011 10:42 PM

    He should try throwing to that amazing receiving core.

  18. chipper41 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:42 PM

    If tebow started a new Christian church right now he’d have a hella lot of converts. Divine intervention is the only logical explanation for the sinners and saints end of game heroics week in and week out.

  19. doggz109 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:42 PM

    What an idiot. Look at the stats Urlacher….he beat you with his arm.

  20. caseyanthonymunoz says: Dec 11, 2011 10:42 PM

    Boo Hoo.

  21. lilrob10201 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:42 PM

    People are giving Tebow too much credit though.You also got to think about Pratter and Marion Barber ( the two players of the game ).

  22. schuta07 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:42 PM

    What my favorite player on my favorite team was really saying was “Marion Barber is a good running back, man. He runs the ball well but he cost us a game tonight with two stupid plays. Wait, did you ask me about Tebow?”

  23. lapsncaps says: Dec 11, 2011 10:43 PM

    In the first three quarters, Tebow’s stats were a little misleading. The receivers were dropping balls left and right that were hitting them right in the hands. Yes, he did have 11 incompletions in a row, but you can’t put all the blame on him, most of those balls were very catchable.

  24. coolgato13 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:43 PM

    If Tebow`s such a great running back, maybe the Bears should try to trade Marion (the goat) Barber for him.

  25. skinsrock says: Dec 11, 2011 10:43 PM

    Skinsrock’s thoughts on Brian Urlacher … “He’s a sore loser”

  26. enikville says: Dec 11, 2011 10:44 PM

    Urlacher is a meathead who routinely puts his foot in his mouth.

  27. lionsplayoffs says: Dec 11, 2011 10:44 PM

    Has to drive Urlacher crazy to lose like that to Tebow. Now he knows how the other 6 teams feel.

  28. eigglesnosuperbowls says: Dec 11, 2011 10:44 PM

    Well Bri,you just got beat by a running back that plays quarterback !

  29. icomethru says: Dec 11, 2011 10:45 PM

    What he meant was hes better than our current starting running back.

  30. bspn2 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:45 PM

    What a sore loser. Urlacher should give Tebow credit when it’s due. I wonder what he thinks of Marion Barber?

  31. lanzurrah says: Dec 11, 2011 10:46 PM

    Can you imagine how good Denver would be right now if they had a QB?

  32. wingshater21 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:46 PM

    Urlacher i thought was always a good guy, he can get a pass on the comment, im sure he’s stunned by the outcome like everybody else haha GO BRONCOS!!

  33. Spencer says: Dec 11, 2011 10:46 PM

    What does that make Hanie?

  34. KIR says: Dec 11, 2011 10:46 PM

    We’ve seen this before ala Vince Yong. He first wins and then the league figures him out and it’s down hill from there. Vince Young IMO is a better passer. Tebow played horribly as he has in many of his wins.

  35. pkrjones says: Dec 11, 2011 10:46 PM

    Really classy, Bri… accept the D’s failure to stop the Broncs O (Not Tebow, but the entire offense) and realize that you’ll be chasing strippers in January instead of QB’s.

  36. allball23 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:46 PM

    This guy can’t get any respect. He can’t be stopped in the fourth quarter. The bears D couldnt do it. he keeps winning.

  37. lgbarn says: Dec 11, 2011 10:47 PM

    What a great comment…just got owned by a college QB…er…RB

  38. rexismybff says: Dec 11, 2011 10:47 PM

    Jerome Bettis once said of Urlacher: “He’s a great blocking dummy, man. He stands still real well.”

    Well, actually Bettis didn’t say that. He just ran him over on the field. Like a blocking dummy.

  39. piazzajordan2 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:47 PM

    Keep it classy, Brian.

  40. henrykissingerisgod says: Dec 11, 2011 10:48 PM

    First running back to ever throw for 236 yards there Brian. Tebow is awesome I usually never watch a bronco game unless they are playing the steelers but now I can’t get enough. Hell, I may even start goin to church

  41. itsabergthing says: Dec 11, 2011 10:48 PM

    Stay classy Urlacher, sounds like he’s all about sportsmanship. You lost, give credit when it’s due. Denver came back in the 4th for a multitude of reasons, and Tebow’s running ability wasn’t at the top of that list. It was the Denver D, Chicago TO’s, Matt Prater and the running backs arm.

  42. cannonballdookie says: Dec 11, 2011 10:48 PM

    Sounds like a sore loser who’s mad that his new QB hasn’t won a game for them yet. Give him some damn credit, he got it together and carved your defense in the 4th.

  43. sterilizecromartie says: Dec 11, 2011 10:48 PM

    Well, that running back threw for twice as many yards as the Bears QB.

  44. huskersrock1 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:49 PM

    Look I was expecting Tebow to crash and burn like the rest of us. I also think his style of play can’t last forever, however, he has yet to play 16 games, he is a rookie. My hats off to him, he looked really good passing against Minnesota and he seems to be improving. Maybe he can become a pocket passer.

  45. kjs7way says: Dec 11, 2011 10:49 PM

    Pretty sure Urlacher would take him as his QB. Did they even have won today! Enjoy watching that running back in the playoffs from your couch Brian!

  46. barnesaintnoble says: Dec 11, 2011 10:50 PM

    Urlacher is a competitor, and he’s clearly mad he lost the game.

    But according to him, his team just got beat by a running back playing quarterback. Doesn’t reflect too well on his own team! Got to give credit to Demarius Thomas and the Denver Defense.

  47. vietnambob2473 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:50 PM

    never seen a running back throw for 230+ yards. Brian Urlacher, your team lost. You have to play for a full 60 mins and then some and you guys didn’t. The Broncos did and took advantage of your mistakes. Lose with some dignity and admit you got beat instead of trying to act like you lost on a bad call or something.

  48. freedomispopular says: Dec 11, 2011 10:51 PM

    I’m pretty sure AFTER getting beat isn’t the smartest time to be talking trash.

  49. superbronco77 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:51 PM

    His quote was taken out of context. What he really said was “I don’t know how we lost and instead of blaming my team for collapsing or credit my opponent for not quitting, I’m just going to be a bitter sore loser.”

  50. nflfollower says: Dec 11, 2011 10:52 PM

    Wonder how it feels to give up those late drives to a team that doesn’t even have a “quarterback” on the field….. pretty pathetic for your D there Brian.

    In other news, Lance Briggs is really pissed. Ha ha.

  51. denversethalex says: Dec 11, 2011 10:52 PM

    Poor Urlacher, it must suck to lose to Tebow! Great job Broncos!

  52. redrocker77 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:52 PM

    Who cares about Brian Urlacher. I’m still waiting to hear how pissed Lance Briggs is.

  53. giveseanpaytonhisjuicyfruit says: Dec 11, 2011 10:52 PM

    Unlike Marion Barber

  54. gadgetdawg says: Dec 11, 2011 10:52 PM

    Poor Urlacher! He and his confederates were beaten by a team that doesn’t even bother to field an actual QB.

    I would say his comment here makes it sound even worse than reality. Reality being that they were beaten by a team with a great defense, great special teams and an incredibly streaky QB. . . Oh and Marion Barber ;)

  55. bowtiefever says: Dec 11, 2011 10:52 PM

    Wish he could just take a loss with some class.

  56. miamiisdecent says: Dec 11, 2011 10:55 PM

    I hated Tebow, but after watching this game, I’m now a Tebow believer.

  57. cliffordc05 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:57 PM

    An unfortunate comment by Urlacher. Hopefully he will show a little more class after he has time to settle down.

  58. steviaquinn says: Dec 11, 2011 10:58 PM

    Your team lost against a team with a RB as the QB. Basically, you lost to a high school offense. Good job Brian.

  59. dlmcc1010 says: Dec 11, 2011 10:59 PM

    Hes much better than that abomination the Bears have starting right now for them. Enjoy another year of watching the playoffs from your couch Urlacher

  60. solidmarine says: Dec 11, 2011 10:59 PM

    Scoreboard, Bri Bri.

    Stay classy Urlacher!
    Just so u know Brian…u were once a great LB and now….

    Irrelevant.

    U and all of ur LB ‘mates should learn how to keep ur collective mouths shut!

  64. imsmartyouarenot says: Dec 11, 2011 11:01 PM

    Huh. Seems like a silly thing to say after…..you know…..YOU LOST.

    Makes you wonder what he would say about his QB.

  65. bearsrulepackdrool says: Dec 11, 2011 11:01 PM

    That great running back scored 10 points in less than 5 minutes on YOU. I’m going to need you to stop talking about people and actually start stopping them!

    You can blame Hanie and Barber but you coulda stopped them at any time.

  66. 7pints says: Dec 11, 2011 11:01 PM

    Bitter, man. It fuels us even more! Keep it coming haters.

  67. greg2geez says: Dec 11, 2011 11:02 PM

    Urlacher’s right. Tebow certainly outplayed Marion Barber.

  68. kyleortonsarm says: Dec 11, 2011 11:02 PM

    Awww poor Brian. Just so you know, that’s what “Heart” looks like. You couldn’t even play after your mom died. You’re a weak player. No heart. No skill. No titles. You’ll fade away into the “Hall of Just Alright” but you’ll never be famous. Have fun fading into obscurity.

  69. thekiy says: Dec 11, 2011 11:02 PM

    Wow, what a bitter comment from a bitter guy. Of course I’d be bitter if I just handed the Wild Card spot to the Lions too.

  70. vickspuppy says: Dec 11, 2011 11:04 PM

    What a gutless POS UrSlacker is. He challenged Tebow to walk the walk and Tebow beat duh Bears fair and square. Now Brian can’t give a little respect? What a jerk!

    Enjoy the offseason Chicago.

  71. whichiwhichwawa says: Dec 11, 2011 11:04 PM

    great running back who clearly went up&down passing the ball on your overrated @$$ defense in the last 5mins of the game? yeah go ahead take your shot!!!

  72. rwindett says: Dec 11, 2011 11:05 PM

    Hey Brian, SCOREBOARD.

  73. glink123 says: Dec 11, 2011 11:06 PM

    Nobody likes a sore loser. I thought Urlacher had more class than this.

  74. vikingsftw says: Dec 11, 2011 11:07 PM

    I’d say Urlacher is a “great chicago bears cheerleader” but, he is too damn ugly. Jealous moron!

  75. broncrage says: Dec 11, 2011 11:08 PM

    give the guy his due .. stay classy

  76. berniemadoffsides says: Dec 11, 2011 11:09 PM

    Be more bitter.

  77. pitt58 says: Dec 11, 2011 11:10 PM

    Tebow converted a 3rd and 16 with a run up the middle. It took about 4 Bears to reverse his momentum, one of which was Urlacher. If Urlacher, a defensive captain, has no respect for his ability to throw, since he said Tebow is a RB and not a QB, why not keep the defense in a position to stop the only thing Tebow is good at? It’s too bad Urlacher wasn’t the first one to make contact, I would’ve liked a repeat of Urlacher getting trucked by Bettis.

  78. blackqbwhiterb says: Dec 11, 2011 11:11 PM

    I rooted for Urlacher to win that Super Bowl a few years ago, but it’s become apparent the Bears have never been that good during his time there. He may be a bit over rated….Unlike Tebow, who’s under rated by everyone including Urlacher.

  79. blackqbwhiterb says: Dec 11, 2011 11:13 PM

    Tim prays for you, Brian

  80. kinguga says: Dec 11, 2011 11:13 PM

    The Bears called a bunch of defenses late in the game that treated Tebow like he does not possess an arm that can throw a football. I’m not the only one who saw how open his receivers were late in regulation. He gets credit for making the Bears pay, but the Bears all the credit in the world for gifting that game to the Broncos.

  81. maltliquor says: Dec 11, 2011 11:14 PM

    No class whatsoever. You were outplayed when it mattered most, get over it!

  82. bigpimp69 says: Dec 11, 2011 11:15 PM

    I don’t know why I am shocked at the lack of class shown by a man whose greatest off-field accomplishment has been bedding celebrity shanks like Paris Hilton, but I am.

    You choked away the game, be a man and own up to it. If you don’t like being beat by a “running back” then do your job. It was his defense that decided to let a “running back” throw all over them.

  83. Little Earthquake says: Dec 11, 2011 11:16 PM

    “He’s a good running back, man. He runs the ball well,” Urlacher said.

    Then I guess you lost to a team with a good running back.

  84. goforthanddie says: Dec 11, 2011 11:17 PM

    I wonder how long it took Urlacher to realize how stupid his comment was, or if he had to be told.

  85. cdrobinson83 says: Dec 11, 2011 11:24 PM

    That entire “quote” includes him saying that Tebow makes special plays and finds ways to win. That part was conveniently left out… I don’t think he meant that comment to be as negative as we’re all making it out to be. But who knows.

  86. fnslidevick says: Dec 11, 2011 11:25 PM

  88. comeonnowguys says: Dec 11, 2011 11:28 PM

    Any other QB puts up his statline, and the talk is about the Broncos defense and Matt Prater.

  89. costacos87 says: Dec 11, 2011 11:28 PM

    Please come to Baltimore or Pittsburgh Timmy. See how that offense works against a real defense.

  90. sprtsfan1 says: Dec 11, 2011 11:31 PM

    All Urlacher was saying is the Tebow is not the one that beat the Bears. The praise that Tebow is getting is ridiculous! He did nothing in this game. The passes that he made in the 4th quarter were exactly what the Bears allowed him to do. Short passes allowed but not giving up the big play or allow the opponent to get out of bounds. Sorry, not a Tebow believer, especially after that performance.

  91. comeonnowguys says: Dec 11, 2011 11:32 PM

    In what world is 230 yards “all over?”

    Oh right, in FanboiWorld.

  92. steviaquinn says: Dec 11, 2011 11:32 PM

    Who Made Mr. Urlacher make that comment? Mmm……… well i dont know……..maybe………

    SATAN!!!!!

  93. earthtopft says: Dec 11, 2011 11:38 PM

    Tebow on Urlacher “He was a good running back. In high school. But he had to make a position change.”.

    —————————————

    Agreed. I could not believe, nor could the announcers, how wide the receivers were on those last 2 drives. Especially near the sidelines. If you aren’t going to cover the receivers, at least keep them in the middle of the field. The chicago defensive calls were real head scratchers at the end of the game.

  95. namriverrat69 says: Dec 11, 2011 11:43 PM

    Tebow is refreshing to watch. He takes me back to the days of Fran Tarkenton with the Vikings although Tebow is a better runner.

  96. honolulubluekoolaid says: Dec 11, 2011 11:49 PM

    Thank you Marion barber! Lions fans are loving the bears losing to teams we beat. Denver has not lost since getting spanked by the Lions. Go Lions. Go Broncos.

  99. gojags says: Dec 11, 2011 11:59 PM

    Urlacher – “You are the most overrated Linebacker of this year”. Shut up and accept the defect. Tebow had thrown 200+ Yards. If he is a good running back, it speaks about your defense that allowed 200+ yards for a running back.

  100. mazenblue says: Dec 11, 2011 11:59 PM

  101. staleythebear says: Dec 12, 2011 12:03 AM

    People keep saying the Bears were outplayed. They weren’t outplayed at all. They played the prevent zone perfectly. The problem is that they were outcoached. Well, that, and Marion Barber is absolutely stupid.

  102. txbearmeat says: Dec 12, 2011 12:07 AM

    Stick a fork in the Bears.

  103. cw3214 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:10 AM

    At least you changed the headline to accurately reflect Urlacher’s quote.

  104. jjbadd says: Dec 12, 2011 12:11 AM

    Don’t hold it against Ulracher, I’m in disbelief myself! I had all but turned off the game when it was 10 – 0, with under 3 minutes left, then the magic happened..

  105. ccooww says: Dec 12, 2011 12:13 AM

    Urlacher, just another washed up player who likes to hear himself talk. For the betterment of the team, maybe you should start thinking about retirement.

  106. bspurloc says: Dec 12, 2011 12:14 AM

    .
    before the game Urlacher declared their defense was disciplined and knows how to handle a ‘tebow’
    Oh well too bad he was wrong

  107. notjcred says: Dec 12, 2011 12:16 AM

    How nice of Brian, the best defender on the field (besides one-handed Von Miller, DJ, Champ, Dumervil, Dawkins…).

    As the great philosopher, Lil’ Wayne, once said: “Today I went shopping and talk is still cheap.”

  108. crnvic847 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:18 AM

    Tebow did not win this game. Pratter won that game with an amazing 59 yard field goal and another in OT. I was at the game as a bears fan and I will tell you this. I never would have though that Broncos fans would be so bad. They might be the worst fans in the NFL. They can not win with class. I was congratulating Broncos fans and all I got in return was a bunch of profanities. With that being said I am now pulling for the Raiders to win the AFC west.

  109. easyeddie says: Dec 12, 2011 12:22 AM

    And Haine isn’t even a mediocre QB.

    Urlacher’s a fool — makes Jared Allen seem intelligent.

    Tebow: 21-of-40 passes, 236 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.

  110. kdizzle22 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:22 AM

    “when you win say nothing, when you lose say less” take notes Brian

  111. 3rdstringqb says: Dec 12, 2011 12:23 AM

    It’s amazing how many of you think the Broncos are winning because of Tebow. How long do you think he is going to get by with starting a game 3-for-16? His inaccuracy throwing the ball is going to catch up with him when he has to play quality teams that aren’t ravaged by injury.

    This game wouldn’t have even been close if Cutler and Forte were healthy. The game would have been far out of reach by the time Tebow got his head out of his ass.

    The reality is the Broncos had the game gift wrapped for them by a team without it’s starting quarterback and running back and anyone who can’t see that has blinders on or simply doesn’t understand the game. And Urlacher is 100% right. Tebow is a decent running back, but he’s a terrible passer until he faces a prevent defense that allows him to dump the ball off underneath over and over.

    The Broncos will be one and done come playoff time.

  113. jagwar73 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:25 AM

    Yeah, 18 completions in the fourth quarter. Not bad for a running back at all. Everyone is entitled to sour grapes once in a while though Brian.

  114. kingjoe1 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:25 AM

    Yea urlacher and your good football player for a white guy

  115. frezfram says: Dec 12, 2011 12:33 AM

    I don’t mind the Bronco’s winning and that Urlacher shoots off his mouth. I am sick of the football media’s full on love affair with Tebow. Its gotten boring. In a way it would be interesting to see the Bronco’s up against the Steelers or Ravens in a playoff game. I really wanted the Bears to win just so that some of the hype would go away.

  116. packattack91 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:34 AM

    First of all these comments from UrLACKer are pretty low and uncalled for, especially since that running back just threw the ball on your solid defense. Secondly i love watching Tebow, its refreshing to see someone not just stand there all game and throw the ball a la Brady..no offense to Brady i respect him just Tebow makes games more exciting. Finally i don’t know if Tebow can keep playing like this for along time, even though people need to stop over-analyzing him and just enjoy the Tebow ride, and hopefully he proves me wrong and develops into a better passer and continues winning.

  117. jsalis13 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:36 AM

    Bears had a plan in that game that allowed Tebow to score. It ran tons of time off the clock and worked perfectly until Barber just went and messed everything up. He doesn’t run out of bounds and the bears win

  118. kingcarlbanks says: Dec 12, 2011 12:37 AM

    Yes, let the hate flow through you….

  119. johnschatzan says: Dec 12, 2011 12:40 AM

    Maybe urlacher was taking a stab at Marion barber.

  120. grannyvi4 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:42 AM

    I’m not a Tebow lover or hater (especially since he beat the Vikes last week in the closing minutes AFTER Ponder threw a pass directly to the Denver defender); however, I watched this game and seems it was Marion Barber who lost this game for the Bears by running out of bounds and giving the Broncos a chance in regulation (which they took and capitalized on), and second, by coughing up the ball and ending the Bears drive in OT.

    Yeah, Tebow and the Broncos did what they needed to do to win the game…after it was gift-wrapped for them by Marion Barber. That’s the point, though. The Broncos have been able to capitlize on others’ mistakes over and over (and over and over and over and over) again this year.

    Teams that started strong this year are fading fast (Oakland and Chicago come to mind). The Saints and Pats…yeah, they’re winning but it’s really been a struggle, especially today. And out of nowhere comes the Broncos. Everyone always says that the good teams find ways to win and just like the Pats and the Saints, the Broncos have been winning. Those wins may not be pretty, but my hat’s off to ‘em.

    …or something like that…

  124. msukra784 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:49 AM

    Thanks to marion barber, this one kept people on the edge of their seats, complete with insane field goals. Tebow is great when the game is on the line. My question is what are the tebow haters going to do when the broncos beat the patriots? Not sayin it will happen. But its something to think about.

  125. KIR says: Dec 12, 2011 12:50 AM

    Tim Tebow First 3 Quarters 3-16 45 yards & 1 INT. Enough said

  126. drunkenagitator says: Dec 12, 2011 12:55 AM

    What if Tim Tebow doesn’t suck, but is in fact the best football player ever? Not that I believe it, but it is interesting to ponder.

  127. nekelund says: Dec 12, 2011 12:57 AM

    If Urlacher had won the game, his comments might be meaningful. But having given up 18 completions in the 4th quarter and overtime, a ten point lead in just over the last 2 minutes and losing the game after winning the OT coin toss, Urlacher just comes across as a sore loser.

    Say what you will about Barber’s gaffes, but Urlacher and crew had a big lead and plenty of time to stop Tebow in the 4th quarter and overtime. The Bears defence failed, so Urlacher needs to shut up – Tebow may be a “running back”, but he still beat the Bears’ defence, Urlacher included.

  128. rodgers419 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:58 AM

    Tim Tebow is the most overrated player in the NFL. The broncos are winning in spite of him, not because of him. Didn’t he start something like 3 for 15 against Chicago? He and his fan club are laughable. Wake up call next week.

  129. westmantooth says: Dec 12, 2011 1:03 AM

    I almost felt bad for hating Urlacher when he said those things about Sayers, turns out I was justified for disliking this tool. If Tebow is such an awful QB, what does that say about the rest of your team, Brian, if such a QB beats you with only 7 minutes plus OT to do it? For everyone saying Prater won the game, stop please, once again the entire team should get the credit….plus Barber .

  131. mgflolox says: Dec 12, 2011 1:08 AM

    Tebow is playing amazing football and he gets zero respect? Sounds about right. He actually plays the game and wins instead of trash talking to the media every chance he gets like a huge percentage of overrated players in the league.

    would love to see merrill hoge get punched out by one coach ditka, if anyone saw those two going at it pregame, it was hilarious… gotta love my broncos and the things tebow is doing, havent had so much confidence in our qb since a certain number 7 was under center over a decade ago. tebow is here to stay!! now just catch the ball receivers!

  136. ravensfan4life52 says: Dec 12, 2011 1:21 AM

    It’s amazing how many of you think the Broncos are winning because of Tebow. How long do you think he is going to get by with starting a game 3-for-16? His inaccuracy throwing the ball is going to catch up with him when he has to play quality teams that aren’t ravaged by injury.
    ==================================

    You know, if you just look at the stats and don’t watch the games, I can see how you come to this conclusion. But look at what’s happened. The Broncos were 1-4 before Tebow took over. Where was that great defense for Kyle Orton? Where was the intensity? The truth is, for whatever reason, Tebow has energized this team and made it play better than it did before. It may not be his stats making them win, but it’s undeniable that they’re a different and better team when he plays, and that IS because of him.

    As for “wait til he plays a good team”…he’s beaten the Jets, Raiders and Bears. All teams that were in playoff position when the Broncos played them.

  142. lostsok says: Dec 12, 2011 2:32 AM

    If you look really close, on super-slo-mo on a 1080 High Def 52″ TV, you can actually SEE the hand of God knock the ball out of Barber’s grip.

  143. thetruth619 says: Dec 12, 2011 2:34 AM

    The ”He’s a winner” talk is pretty lame. So is the center. The RBs too. As a matter of fact, everyone who played for the Broncos today. It’d be one thing if the team was terrible and he just carried them to victory. That’s obviously not happening lol Tebow is along for the ride. People need to be giving coach Fox and their D way more credit. They are finding a way to stay in games despite their liability at QB.

  144. muhangis says: Dec 12, 2011 2:40 AM

    hahahaha I love Urlacher. Way to carry on a sense of humor. But all jokes aside, the Broncos have yet to beat a quality opponent with Tebow under center.

    They only had to score 13 pts tonight at home – against a Bears team w/o their entire O in Jay Cutler & Forte. Then M Barber literally handed off to them the win.

    Week before, they barely pulled it out against a God awful Minn team, where Ponder handed them a win w/ his OT int. Vikes played with an atrocious injury depleted secondary.

    Previous that, faced an avg Charger team in a cold spell. Only needed 16 pts for that win. I will give Tebow credit for their home win vs the Jets, yet again scored only 17.

    Wk 10 win against the dead crappy KC Chiefs. He beat the Oakland Raiders with only 124 passing yds. Tebow got butchered in their home loss vs Detroit. And the win in Miami was again versus a terrible football team.

    Bottomline is: they have won against only horrible teams.

    They will first their first test next week in New England. Then let’s see what we say about Tebow…..

  145. muhangis says: Dec 12, 2011 2:44 AM

    Prater won them that game.

  146. rushbacker says: Dec 12, 2011 2:53 AM

    Baha. Sounds a lot like any number of bears fans that were around downtown Denver still trying to talk tough after the game. I’ll give them credit, they travel really well, and showed up in force. They sure don’t lose well though, and I can see where it comes from. Urlacher sounds like a tool.

    Lets not mince words. The Bears defense knew the deal going into the game. You need to be able to stop Tebow late in the game.

    Urlacher, Briggs, Pepper and company FAILED to do this. When it mattered most Urlacher, Briggs, Pepper and company COULD NOT PREVENT Tebow from completing 18 passes.

    The Bears defense is very good, fast and experienced, but they had to eat their words and line up with all the other defenses that FAILED to contain Tebow late in the fourth.

    Tebow is a running back that’s how he can make a few throws here and there. Show me the needles that he threaded….. ya none. Hell he can’t even throw it out of bounds right got picked by tillman. You can have faith in him if you want but I will take what is proven in cutler any day over tebow. Chicago offense was avg. 30 points a game before cutler went down. He is the MVP of the bears by far, cutler is a leader by his arm not religion. Like a real QB.

  166. fwippel says: Dec 12, 2011 8:19 AM

    What’s worse for the Bears is the fact that Atlanta and Detroit both won, though the Lions benefited greatly from a missed facemask call on the game’s last play.

    It would been nice to see the Lions get ‘Webbed’ while the Bears were getting ‘Tebowed’. Sour grapes aren’t going to solve the Bears problems.

  177. oceanpeaks says: Dec 12, 2011 9:09 AM

    Tebow works every day (insiders say far above and beyond the effort of most of his peers) to improve and to put himself in a position to help his team win. You never hear him slobber all over himself about his personal accomplishments, but rather he always lifts up his coaches, teammates and fans. This guy is first class and a true team leader who makes everyone around him work harder, believe deeper and play better. Urlacher is spot on: Tebow can run; but, he runs with his heart, loyalty and relentless dedication, and that will always gain the extra yard when it’s needed most. Set aside religious fervor, football “smarts” and other bias, folks, and be honest… Tebow does not expect, nor would he ask for credit, but he certainly earns a fair share – every day.

  178. hjworton46 says: Dec 12, 2011 9:10 AM

    Only one thing matters: Denver scored 13, Chicago scored 10. Denver won. Chicago lost. How or why are secondary to the result itself. The fact that before TT took over Denver had been a joke for the past x number of years(anything between 2 and 7), recently (since Orton joined the club) being arguably the worst team in the whole NFL. Since TT took over Denver have won all the close games they’d have lost under Orton(and his predecessors). These things are not a coincidence.

    Yeah hey can beat anyone with his arm, especially if that team is coached by Lovie Smith and constantly goes into passive shell defense mode when trying to protect a lead. If Cutler and Matt Forte played was in this game Tebow’s o-20 stretch would have buried his team. But whatever, good job Broncos and Tebow, the Bears were mad lucky last year, guess it’s your turn.

    Urlacher is definitely the star of his own show. Loves to hear himself talk. I guess Urlacher is not very good against running QB’s anyway. 3 years ago he got undressed by Tom Brady – probably the worst running QB in the league and Brady walked into the end zone. So maybe Urlacher has a point. He cannot defend a QB who runs the ball.

  193. myopinionisrighterthanyours says: Dec 12, 2011 11:47 AM

    Way to stay classy, Urlacher. I don’t care if it took Tebow 50 attempts to get his 18 completions in the 4th and OT (obviously, I suspect it is much less). That’s better than any RB could do. Then again, you still think the better team was not the winner of last year’s Super Bowl, even though, every year it is generally accepted that the SB winner is the best team because they prove it on the field. And when will people just accept that Tebow is a winner. Period. Kid has intangibles like you wouldn’t believe, but people just can’t accept it, because, they’re intangibles. How many SB’s did Marino’s tangibles get him (not to say Tebow will will a Super Bowl)?

  194. sminco123 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:11 PM

    Brian gets a pass from me. Very frustrating loss for the Bears. Tebow is getting better. Those 11 incompletions in a row; many were part of the game plan. If the reciever is not wide open, throw the ball where only a Bronco has a chance. Coaches orders; no mistakes, don’t take chances with ball security, lets keep it close. Tim is running the game plan. Also, lets credit the Bears defense. Pretty darn good.

  195. jharmon64 says: Dec 12, 2011 12:14 PM

    Classless remark.

  196. rarson says: Dec 12, 2011 12:23 PM

    No doubt that Tebow DID make some on-point throws that his piece of crap receivers dropped, but that’s a moot point. The point is that Tebow WASN’T all that great, whether it was his receivers or not. The Broncos don’t win if Marion Barber stays in bounds. Period.

    I like watching Tebow play, and I like defensive struggles… this was a very good game! And Tebow (not Jesus) deserves credit when he leads his team to victory. And he definitely seems able to will them to keep playing until the very end, which is one of the reasons I think he’s so successful. But sometimes his team is luckier than they are good, and this is one of those times.

    Give him credit when it’s due. Stop giving him credit every time the other team hands him the game. Tebow supporters sound like he does when he talks about Jesus: everything good that happened is because of Tebow, and nothing bad is ever his fault.

    If you want to talk about a great quarterback leading his team to victory, then maybe you should be talking about Eli Manning, because there’s no way that team wins without him. Unlike Denver’s game yesterday.

    The Detroit Lions didn’t have a problem with Tebow, maybe the great Bears defense should have watched that tape.

  198. Deb says: Dec 12, 2011 1:12 PM

    Is he a good enough running back to know not to run out of bounds and give the other team another chance at the ball?

  199. 3rdstringqb says: Dec 12, 2011 1:41 PM

    The Broncos put 13 points on the board in 4-1/2 quarters. Can Broncos fans open their eyes and stop crediting Tebow with the win? It makes you look stupid. Defense, special teams, and Marion Barber deserve much more credit than Tebow does.

  200. jkbear says: Dec 12, 2011 1:58 PM

    Denver did not win because of Tebow, they won despite him. He fumbled the ball in the red zone and threw a pick when they were driving as well.
    If you really want to be honest with yourselves you would have to say Chicago lost the game. All Marion Barber has to do is fall down in bounds and the game is over. I mean come on man! Denver could barely beat the bears without Cutler or Forte. Denver fans know what a good qb looks like so I don’t understand why they’re believing in false prophets (sorry I couldn’t help myself) They would have gotten destroyed if the bears were healthy. That is if Lovie’s dumb a$$ didn’t start trying to run the clock out in the 3rd quarter again.
    To those idiots who are mentioning Tebow for MVP, you don’t know football and please just shut up! Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees should win since they actually aren’t hacks, and don’t ride the success of their defenses and running backs!

  201. tricwhyte says: Dec 12, 2011 2:08 PM

    I prefer to give credit where credit is truly due: the Denver defense (and Marion Barber if we’re just talking about yesterday’s game). Seriously, the Denver defense plays solid and consistent football for 4 quarters every week. Tebow plays average to horrible football for all but about 5 minutes every week.

  202. sullijo1 says: Dec 12, 2011 3:05 PM

    Bears fans can make their January travel plans, TIM TEBOW just ended your season.

    Man, that sucks for you.

  203. namriverrat69 says: Dec 12, 2011 3:52 PM

    And Denver’s 12th man award for this game goes to —– Marion Barber!!

    You see me, hi hater

  205. trainlane says: Dec 12, 2011 3:56 PM

    And Tebow was nothing but complimentary about Briggs, Urlacher and the Bears defense. Way to stay classy Brian! Maybe the coaching staff can change his diaper and put him down for his nap.

  206. granadafan says: Dec 12, 2011 4:14 PM

    I’m Christian, but am really turned off by the over the top displays of Christianity by Tebow and his pastor. Shoving Christianity in people’s faces isn’t going to win over anyone. Only the religious fanatics like Dick Perry and the ultra Conservatives approve of this.

  207. namriverrat69 says: Dec 12, 2011 6:26 PM

    How does Tim Tebow honoring his faith come across as shoving it down your throat. Sounds like you are insecure in your faith to be criticizing him for how he practrices his.

    Muslims athletes are allowed to openly display their faith. NBA players haven’t stood for our national anthem even though it would be courteous as all athletes do at the Olypmics.

    Muslim athletes have openly shared their faith of Ramadan where they fast for a month – which is basically eating breakfast before sunrise skipping lunch and eating dinner after sunset. I don’t know how you can call missing lunch fasting but if it makes them happy it doesn’t bother me.

    Baseball players cross themselves and point to the sky numerous times a day as they come to the plate. How is that different than what Tim Tebow does?

    He is not proscyletizing to America when he does what he does. He probably has been doing it since he was a kid.

    Besides, where does it say in the constitution that anyone has the right not to be offended. If you don’t like something ignore it or don’t look or listen.

  208. cowhawkfan says: Dec 12, 2011 6:39 PM

    As a Cowboy fan I could say, Romo lossed the game for us when he over threw a receiver so wide open even Tebow would have completed the pass. Or I could blame it on Garrett for not calling time-out quickly enough as so many articles have points out. Or I could blame it on Ryan and the D for not being able to hold a 12 point 4 quarter lead. In other words, the Cowboys gave the game away, the Giants didn’t win it. But…that would be STUPID!! The Giants had to do something after the Cowboys made those mistakes, and they did a great job taking the opportunites handed to them.
    One could argue the Broncos handed the game to the Bears, yet the Bears weren’t good enough to take advantage of those opportunities. So…please give Tebow and the Broncos the same amount of respect and admit that while the Bears made some mistakes, the mistakes didn’t lose the game for them. The Broncos took advantage of the opportunies those mistakes gave them.

  209. thetruth619 says: Dec 12, 2011 6:56 PM

    Would he still be considered a ”winner” by the tebow sheep if Barber didn’t run out of bounds or fumble the ball??

  210. dmobey says: Dec 12, 2011 9:38 PM

    So you got your arse handed to you by a team with no QB?

    Must be a great defense.

  211. dmobey says: Dec 12, 2011 9:41 PM

    Didn’t know Barber played defense and let Tebow march down field, not once, not twice, but three times at the end of the game.

    Urlacher is definitely the star of his own show. Loves to hear himself talk. I guess Urlacher is not very good against running QB’s anyway. 3 years ago he got undressed by Tom Brady – probably the worst running QB in the league and Brady walked into the end zone. So maybe Urlacher has a point. He cannot defend a QB who runs the ball.

    Tebow did NOT win this game for the Broncos. The Broncos D and Matt Prater won this game for Denver.

  228. neeciekay says: Dec 15, 2011 5:41 PM

    All of you dillusional Bronco/Tebow fans need to shut the frock up talking about Brian Urlacher, a seasoned vet, that has the right to his opinion just like anyone else, as soon as Tebow’s luck runs out, you all will verbally asassinate him, as fair-weather fans often do. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinions, and what REAL man would say any other team is better than his own? That air must really be thin in Colorado, because all of yall are silly thinking Tebow won that game, Marion Barber and Caleb Hanie gave Pratter the opportunity to win that game, nothing more, nothing less. Chicago’s defense shut the “wonder-boy” down for 3.5 solid quarters, bad play-calling on the defensive end halted the shut-down. Get real people and watch football with your brains and not your emotions!!

  229. nickynick04 says: Dec 15, 2011 8:44 PM

    Oh yea, he was the guy who said the Bears were better then the Packers, and that they , da Bears are a Super bowl team….and…they are the best team in the NFC north……

    I thought the NFC North could handle the young guy, but he showed he has heart and doesn’t give up. Thankfully my Lions didn’t disappoint like Minnesota and Chicago did. Not saying anything bad. I was thinking the NFC North was going to shup up the press, but no. Next year they’ll be talking about somebody else. It’s all about what have you done for me lately.

    Only if he completes as many passes as he did to get his team in position to win the game. Which he did. When it counted, he didn’t fumble, he didn’t choke, he didn’t miss targets the defense gave him.

    Joe Montana, John Elway, Brett Favre, Tom Brady – all had good defenses, good running games and good receivers around them. And their opponents also handed them opportunities. You want to say those guys are therefore not winners?

    Not following your logic…
