Default Urlacher leaves bears, lets get him

Look good in Denver, replace Brooking as the crafty vet at MLB?

This.

Brooking is just as good at this point and much much cheaper.

I think it would be a great signing. I think Bradley was strictly a special teams signing. Who was that bum we signed from Seattle a few years ago...Koutivirus? Same type talent if you ask me.

Nate Irving....2yrs and not good enough to beat out the likes of Mays? And, we're supposed to be sold on him now? Not me.

Brookings played the best inside for the Broncos...since Al Wilson....in my opinion. Urlacher would be a slight step up from Brookings in my opinion...with a chip on his shoulder.

"Urlacher: Bears' offer a slap in the face"

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...,7297431.story
Quote:
Urlacher’s agent originally approached the Bears seeking a two-year deal worth $11.5 million. The thought was to aim high initially and reach a middle ground through negotiations.

The Bears apparently wouldn't budge on their offer of a one-year contract worth a maximum value of $2 million.
I think Urlacher is in for a rude awakening once he hits the open market.

I'd take Manti over him, too. Rooks are cheaper, and Manti is faster than Urlacher at this point, too.... and that's not saying much.

We're moving forward with Nate Irving if Fox's words in Phoenix are any indication of why we've not gone after an MLB in FA. Basic point made is that Irving was just a victim of circumstance and it's his time to shine.

And if Irving goes down with a knee tear in preseason?

We could find Urlacher holding a will tackle for money sign and pick him up.

And how do you feel if those circumstances are that Irving couldn't beat out Mays for the 2012 season. Not sure what the status of Brooking is for the 2013 season but I would keep him around if you are not looking outside for help.

A washed-up geriatric Urlacher would be far better than any of the jokers we've trotted out at MLB over the past 6 years.

Because he can't play at a high level anymore. The end result would be no different. At least by playing the younger guys you get to see if they've got it. By playing an old washed up vet, you get the same result (sucky play) but you don't find out about one of your younger players. Sometimes all it takes is getting the consistent reps during games. Woodyard seemed to do pretty well when he got those game reps. Maybe Irving can improve with more play but I don't think he'll be a great one. I don't know, there's just no good answer right now at MLB for us. The players we got, nobody is good enough right now and you hope somebody can step up and improve quite a bit. The draft is weak but sometimes you can find a sleeper. Then you have the old wahsed up dudes that used to be good but father time has caught up to them.

We shall see. I forecast many complaints on this forum this coming season regarding the MLB position.

Huge fan of Urlacher. Graduated from high school the same year he did and played football in the same state and same classification he did. Graduated from UNM the same year he was drafted. Would have loved for him to be a Bronco. . . .10 years ago.

He's done. His knees are so bad he can't really move laterally anymore.
I'm still not convinced Irving is going to be anything special, but we'll see. Would rather address Mike in the draft than throw money at Urlacher and clearly he still wants money like a 28-year-old guy with two knees.

We should go get Lendale White because I played with him in the same conference in HS.

Reading Comprehension. I said that he's one of my favorite non-Bronco players because of my local connection to him and even in my rose-colored view of Urlacher, I think he's done. Draft a Mike; roll with Irving or draft a Mike and roll with Irving. Urlacher's knees are shot. The Bears know this, which is why they offered one of the most storied middle-linebackers in their storied history a contract for six dollars and 70 cents.

I hope Irving pans out I really do but I have my doubts. Why I think this signing would be great is for the leadership he would bring! He might only be a marginal upgrade on brooking - but the leadership is what this D is really lacking. Something akin to when we brought in Lynch

He is too inconsistent at this point, I have seen him make a great play forcing the blocker into the RB with enough force to bring him down with out Urlicker touching him then on the next play have the same RB run through him like a wet paper sack.

Is he better than Irving or Johnson or the new guy? Maybe this year.

Is he equal to Brookings? if he is healthy.

I would not be upset if they gave him a cheap 1 year deal but I would want to see him play well and not go out like OJ or Unitas did at the end of their careers.

He seems adamant on not retiring, and thinks he can still play well, as evidenced by what kind of contract he is seeking.
No way he gets anything close to that though.

i honestly think i'd rather have Brooking or Mays. Urlacher's legs are about to fall off, and truthfully he at this point in his career is not an upgrade to what we have.
