Earlier this week, Green Bay Packer tight end Jermichael Finley came out and said the Bears are a better team without linebacker Brian Urlacher on the field.
Bears linebacker Lance Briggs came to the defense of Urlacher, but Urlacher also decided to fire back at Finley.
“Just like a couple of years ago, I think, he tore his ACL and the Packers were actually better without him,” Urlacher told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Thursday, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “You know, they won the Super Bowl. I hope we can duplicate that as well because it won’t hurt my feelings if we go on and win the Super Bowl without me like they did without him.”
Urlacher says he doesn’t care what people say about him.
“People can say what they want,” said Urlacher, who is out with a hamstring injury. “It feels like I deal with something like this every year. Someone’s always saying something about me.”
