On Thursday, Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher down played Jay Cutler’s outburst from last week’s game against the Packers and indicated that they’re locker room isn’t divided.
“People get mad,” Urlacher said. “I’ve gotten in spats with coaches, players as well. It happens. … People get pissed off and sometimes do things we shouldn’t do. But it happens.”
“It’s just like a fight in practice: It’s in practice, who cares?” he said. “You guys probably see us fight in training camp every year. So what? After practice is over, you’re in the locker room (and) you’re buddies again.
“It’s not a big deal. You lose your emotions sometimes out there and you get mad. But once it’s over with, it’s over with. We spend a lot of time around each other, so you better get rid of it real quick. It’s going to be a long season if we don’t.”
Urlacher says he heard about what happened between Cutler and J’Marcus Webb, but didn’t see it happen.
“I didn’t pay attention to it locally or nationally,” Urlacher said. “Everyone was asking me about it, but I still haven’t seen what happened. And I don’t really care what happened.
“Whatever happened, it’s over with now. We’ve moved on. It doesn’t seem to be an issue. Someone told me there was a mutiny against Jay in our locker room. If there was, I didn’t know about it. I guess we’re supposed to be mad at him, but things happen on the sideline.”
