Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told The Jim Rose Show that he’s going to miss former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.
“I just have the utmost amount of respect for him, the way he plays the game,” Rodgers, said per ESPNChicago.com. “A lot of memories come to mind. He picked me off a couple times, maybe more than anybody else has. But I had one really bad play in the NFC Championship [after the] 2010 season and was able to somehow grab his knee/thigh area enough to trip him up for a tackle [and prevent a touchdown]. One of my favorite memories going against Brian.
“But the thing I loved about going against Brian was the conversation between plays, between series, during TV timeouts. I just have a ton of respect for him and wish him nothing but the best. I’ll miss him out there.”
Rodgers is a true professional and competitor. We’re all going to miss watching Urlacher making plays on Sunday’s.
