Thousands of kids look up to him as a role model, including his own three children, but tonight Brian Urlacher showed again that he and his team can’t win the big game. The final Chicago Bears score: They lost 21-14 to the Green Bay Packers, after QB Jay Cutler was knocked out by the tough Green Bay D. This is the Bears’ second big loss in a big game under coach Lovie Smith in recent years; they also fell to the Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl. Why can’t Brian Urlacher win the big game?
Hopefully the media will give him a break; he has some admirable off-field qualities. He does lots of charity work, which he’s done since his days at New Mexico, and he has fought for custody access to his kids, as opposed to the many pro athletes who shirk their childbearing responsibilities.
