Brian Urlacher Calls Tim Tebow 'A Good Running Back'

Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher was probably frustrated after his team's overtime loss to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos, and deservedly so.  Urlacher's defense had stifled the Broncos for 57 minutes of football; even when Tebow drove the Broncos down for a late score, Urlacher might've assumed that his offense could run out the clock.  Instead, Chicago's offensive miscues and a strong-legged Denver kicker were enough to give the Broncos the win ... and Chicago's strong defensive effort was rendered meaningless.

So it's perhaps unsurprising that, in the face of the overwhelming praise for Tebow, Urlacher had some unkind words for the second-year quarterback's game, according to Brad Biggs of the National Football Post:

And Tebow's response (also via Biggs) should be equally unsurprising, coming from a player known as much for his religious faith and aw-shucks humility as his athletic ability:
