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."
