Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher said Monday that the comments he made to Yahoo Sports regarding his teammates were not meant to be derogatory. The injured star watched Sunday's Bears-Vikings game with reporter Michael Silver and had this to say about quarterback Jay Cutler: "Look, I love Jay, and I understand he's a great player who can take us a long way, and I still have faith in him. But I hate the way our identity has changed. We used to establish the run and wear teams down and try not to make mistakes, and we'd rely on our defense to keep us in the game and make big plays to put us in position to win. "Kyle Orton might not be the flashiest quarterback, but the guy is a winner, and that formula worked for us. I hate to say it, but that's the truth." (Chicago Tribune)Comment
