Last week a sort of "war of words" began between Bears HOF RB Gale Sayers and current Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.
Gale was asked his opinion (key word) about the state of the Bears. Basically he said that the Bears sucked and called Urlacher by name as one of the guys not living up to expectations.
To which Urlacher basically said that he never won anything and that he was nothing and just hating.
Sorry Brian, but Gale is right on this one. You simply just made yourself look like a bigger idiot. The Man is a former Bear in the Hall of Fame and was just telling it like it is. What did you expect him to say? Cutler wasn't horrible? The Packers and Vikings weren't better than Chicago last year? You should have made the Pro Bowl even though you were hurt? Come on man. You even had Dick Butkus telling you to shut up.
Real fans and professionals can admit when there is trouble in paradise. If my team was in the tank, I think I would have to give a little criticism where it was due also. If you can't take the truth, then it would probably be best if you found another profession. Being in the National Football League is gonna come with constant criticism. Goes with the territory.
But if you can take it and you wanna make them eat their words, here's SHD's full proof plan:
1. Shut up
2. Work Hard
3. Be a Leader
5. Play Football
If you do all that, no one can say that you didn't do everything in your power to make the Chicago Bears a better team for the 2010 season.
