Brian Urlacher wasn't impressed with Rocky McIntosh

Brian Urlacher was one of the featured subjects on this week's episode of the NFL Network's Sound FX, and he did not disappoint, offering plenty of one-liners about both teams. His most pointed stuff, though, came on the play before Chicago's only offensive touchdown, when Jay Cutler threw a five-yard pass over the middle to Matt Forte. Rocky McIntosh stopped Forte at the 10-yard line, and then celebrated by waving his arms and banging them into his helmet.

"Oh wow, that guy is hyper, that guy is hyper, huh?" Urlacher observed from the sidelines. "What'd he do? What'd he do, did he tackle for a loss?"

"He made a tackle," Lance Briggs said.

"Sack?" Urlacher asked.

"No, tackle for a gain," Briggs said.

"Oh," Urlacher replied. "I thought he sacked him or something the way he was celebrating. Or maybe he got a pick. He must have caused a fumble."

"No, 2nd and 5," Briggs observed.

"Let's see," Urlacher said, watching the replay on the big screen. "Sack-fumble, sack-fumble, right here."

There was no sack-fumble.

"What'd he do?" Urlacher asked again.

"Just a play," Briggs said. "That's a big play for him, though."

"That was a nice play," Urlacher concluded. "I could tell by the way he celebrated."

Ouch. Scoreboard, fellas. And I wonder what they'd say about some of LaRon Landry's celebrations.

More Urlacher takes:

* He stopped Mike Sellers after one snap to say "What's up Mike, what year is this for you, man?"

"Too many," Sellers said.

"The same as me, then," Urlacher joked.

* He trucked over one of his teammates during one play, and then apologized.

"You just knocked the [bleep] out of your own guy," Casey Rabach told him.

* He complained to the refs after Jay Cutler fumbled on the one-yard line.

"Protect the quarterback, right?" Urlacher told them. "Protect the quarterback, right? That's your job. He was stopped. Blow the whistle."

* He gave a special hug to DeAngelo Hall after the game.

"God, you got four picks, dude?" Urlacher asked him. "God, that's a season for me."

"Stop, stop, stop, stop," Hall said.

* And he had words of praise for Trent Williams when the rookie came up to say hey.

"You too, man, good job," Urlacher told him. "You're a good rookie, man."

Are we, uh, gathering bulletin board material for the potential rematch between these two teams in the playoffs?

I just don't get what's with all the supposed beef between these two teams that only meet every few years and don't have much contentious recent history between them (as I see it).

But I realize it's "supposed beef" that provides sustenance for us all, boggers and bog commenting community alike.

So what I'm trying to say is, F Brian Urlacher, I guess.

Good. Too much celebrating after the run of the mill play happens in this league. Less damn dancing and more wrap up tackling.

Honestly, from most of these quotes, he seems like a down to Earth guy. He called out Rocky for celebrating, which is exactly what I do when I see an opposing player celebrate after a routine play. It's not like he continuously bashed Rocky (who played great) throughout the course of the game.

""That was a nice play," Urlacher concluded. "I could tell by the way he celebrated."

Ouch. Scoreboard, fellas."

So it's normal to celebrate after doing your job as long as your team is winning?

Must stink that you're writing for a what's still predominantly a [paper] newspaper. You'll never get to celebrate.

don't buy no wine from the Urlacher vineyard!

The NFL has turned into being just a noch above pro wrestling. Very sad.

just went to to see this video, noticed that they had a weather report video for the Skins @ Detroit.

Two thoughts. Yeah, too much celebrating for doing the simple things. Imagine your office if every time an email came in, some fool jumped up and chest thumped someone.

On the other hand - Urlacher? Consistently overrated and un-impressive. Maybe he was just jealous

Get your title straight you bald, gossip column idiot. Urlacher didn't like the antics of McIntosh on one play, not with Mcintosh per se as the title of this BS blog indicates. Get it straight simpleton.

Sorry, I'm with Urlacher here. Quit posing and celebrating after doing what you're SUPPOSED to be doing! I'm looking your way, Rocky, LaRon, Carlos, and MeAngelo.

I'm sure Urlacher's never celebrated a tackle after a gain.
