Brian Urlacher on Packers TE Jermichael Finley: Packers Better Without Him
I find this story hilarious because it is a bout of the pot calling the kettle. Brian Urlacher and Jermichael Finley have been exchanging barbs in the media, which all started when Finley said the Bears are better off without a “slowing down” Urlacher.
Brian, no stranger to the microphone came back and threw some pretty funny jabs right back at Finley. Brian reminded Finley that the season in which he tore his ACL was the best one the Packers have had with him on the roster:
Linebacker Brian Urlacher has responded to Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, who said that the Bears are better off with the long-time anchor of their defense.
“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.”
We have been mocking Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert to the Packers for many weeks for this reason alone. Finley’s production is down, and his tweets/commentary are up. Want to shut some people up #88? Go score some touchdowns and lead your team to another Super Bowl. Don’t tweet about it, be about it.
