Brian Urlacher glad he retired before NFL offenses sped up
FOX NFL analyst Brian Urlacher joined the show to talk about the big storylines around the League.
Urlacher talked about the Eagles and up-tempo attacks around the NFL. “I’m just glad I retired before all that stuff got to the NFL,” Urlacher said. “The faster you go, the simpler the defense has to be.”
Dan asked Urlacher if there was a draft of all defensive players, who would he take first. He said former teammate Charles Tillman, J.J. Watt, Navarro Bowman and Tamba Hali all came to mind.
Urlacher commented on a story that he didn’t hear from Jay Cutler. Urlacher said it was overblown. He said that he was friendly with Cutler, but he wasn’t too close to most of the offensive guys. “The last year we did hang out quite a bit,” Urlacher said. “Not away from work. … We had some good ping-pong games, but that’s about the extent of it.”
Urlacher said it seems like new coach Marc Trestman is helping Cutler and despite some mistakes, he’s playing well. “Talent-wise, there’s no one better than him in the NFL,” Urlacher said.
