04:13 PM ET 01.18 | When the Bears arrived at training camp before the season, one of the biggest questions was whether or not this was the last season Brian Urlacher would be in a Bears uniform. Both Urlacher and general manager Phil Emery refused to talk about the situation and vowed to leave all discussions of a contract until that upcoming offseason. That upcoming offseason is now upon us and the question is as relevant as ever: will Brian Urlacher be back next season with the Bears, or have we seen his days in Chicago come to an end? The answer is still murky, but given how things have gone recently, and the foreshadowing we got back in late July/early August, it's not looking good. Bears kicker Robbie Gould went on record in training camp in saying it would be a big risk to roll the dice and allow Urlacher to test free agent waters. Urlacher himself had some very cryptic words around this time too, saying whatever happens, happens.

Adios. He's a shell of the player he once was.

It's for Urlacher to move on to KC or the Raiders.

Cutler has an abrasive personality that may rub the new coach the wrong way. Trestman might be wise to trade him to some other sucker willing to give the Bears a high draft pick.

The Raiders have a history of acquiring over the hill veterans.

Maybe Trestman would want Alex Smith?

WE do have a room ready for our new arrival but haven't purchased a crib. The color scheme will be determined by my wife and we don't want to know the sex of the baby. We will both be happy if the baby is healthy.

Alex Smith wouldn't survive behind that terrible Bear's OL.

Thanks GnG, It sucked watching the defense fail, I thought the offense did ok but the defense looked completely lost in the 4th quarter.

Great song GnG! Love that one!!
