08:07 AM ET 07.20 | Brian Urlacher took the occasion of a Thursday radio appearance to announce he won't have any limitations in training camp after suffering a knee injury in the 2011 season finale. Urlacher missed OTAs as he recovered from the MCL and PCL injury in his left knee, and he couldn't even golf as recently as March 20. Yet, he said when the Bears have their first day in full pads July 28, he'll be ready. "I'm full go for everything, so I won't be missing anything," Urlacher told "The Waddle & Silvy Show." ... "Athletically and mentally, we're one of the best defenses in the NFL," Urlacher said. "You look at position by position, we match up with everybody pretty well. There's no doubt in (my) mind that we have the talent to (win the Super Bowl)."

Same story, same picture, same team. Maybe the same results. As always, the Bears could make the playoffs if things go well, or go golfing in January if they don't.

Still, Urlacher is a team leader and it's nice to see him showing confidence, even if most of us think he's overly optimistic.

Yea, just like every baseball player thinks their team can win a pennant in Spring Training.

The interns are on top of their game. At least they matched the correct story and headline.

Surprising for a Friday. The intern must have forgotten to pick up the jelly donuts this morning.

Mentally?

So, do they all have college degrees? Or have they been through psychological training with the CIA or something?

Usually players are mentally focused when they are getting enough money and attention. I doubt everyone on the defense feels that way. That's never true across the board.

Let's see, I think our annual pre-season events are complete:

1) Jests guarantee a Super Bowl win
2) Iggles are a dynasty
3) A Bears player says they have the 'talent' to win it all

OK, it's time to start playing some games now.

I know right..if you asked any player from any team, they would probably say the same thing...if you dont think that way then you should get a desk job

No, we haven't seen anyone fly a Lear Jet to Hattiesburg to talk with a guy on a tractor.
