04:39 PM ET 11.15 | Even though his starting quarterback is currently dealing with a serious concussion at the moment, Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher once again reiterated that he would lie about a possible head injury in order to stay on the field, according to Andrew Seligman of The Associated Press. The 34-year-old Urlacher originally made comments to HBO earlier in the year that he would do anything in his power to keep playing with a concussion, prompting a significant amount of backlash from around the league. But when the subject was broached again this week with reporters due to Jay Cutler's concussion, Urlacher didn't back down from his comments.

Urlacher is free to play with brain squish if he chooses, just don't expect everyone else to play in a Rain Man stupor

Urlacher isn't playing with a full deck.

At some point the helmets need to be made of a less hard, more flex-giving material, but still protect the head.

How about a sponge.

This is why he can only string two words together in those cable tv commericials.

He is clearly playing with a head that was concussed multiple times in HS and College football, and that accounts for his caveman mentality today.
Try having a coherent conversation with him in about twenty years (if he's still alive). These knuckleheads that want to deny medical warnings are going to live a sad life after the NFL.

Live fast, die young, leave a good looking corpse.... oops,... too late for that Brian

My guess is, in his last lucid moment, he will still say he did the right thing. This is a guy who would rather die with his football helmet on.

Can't argue Brian's heart & soul for the game......If he only had a brain.....apologies to the scarecrow from Oz


I could while away the hours, in the Chicago showers,
Consultin' with my pain.
And my head I'd be scratchin' while my thoughts were busy hatchin'
if I only had a brain.

Creppy knows this because they shop at the same store

This kills me. Players who lie to stay on the field and then later in their life complain that the league is not doing enough to help player safety even going so far as to file class action lawsuits.

I'm also tired of hearing from this blowhard. Listening to Urlacher speak is right up there with the Favre threads.

Because you've never done anything wrong and regretted later? Never smoked ? Never drove after having a few too many? Never cheated on your spouse? Never stole anything? Damn you are a freaking saint, what are doing here with the lowlifes?
