Might as well cancel the season. The Bears are destined for 4-12. Former Bear and current Minnesota Vikings receiver Bobby Wade says Brian Urlacher called Jay Cutler a "pussy." Team chemistry has been ruined forever.
Oh, God, please, no. Anything but that. Will life as we know it continue?
Normally, I hate these kinds of stories because they are completely irrelevant in pro sports. This isn't the California Penal League, Vaughn. They don't tank games for personal reasons. Even if Urlacher and Cutler hate each others guts, they are still going to try to win on fall Sundays. In NFL locker rooms, no one cares about anyone else's feelings.
But this particular story amuses me because of Urlacher's response. What say you, Urlacher?
"Oh please. I don't think I would ever say that about one of my teammates," Urlacher said. "Look, Bobby Wade's a friend of mine. He's trying to get things going before training camp. That's just Bobby being Bobby. I'm pretty sure Jay knows I wouldn't say that about him."
Bobby being Bobby? Are you serious? Bobby Wade is nobody. He doesn't have enough status in the league to be referred to as "Bobby being Bobby." Has Bobby Wade been involved in any other hijinks lately that we should know about? Ah, that pesky Bobby Wade! Always involved in some kind of mischief.
You know what Urlacher should have done. He should have said, "Yeah, I called Cutler a 'pussy.' So what? What are you gonna do about it?" That probably would be the end of the story. Now, it will get blown out of proportion and we'll hear about this alleged "feud" for all of training camp. Yay.
