Brian Urlacher responded to comments made by Dhani Jones saying Urlacher was not a top ten linebacker. Â Check what he says after the jump…
Chicago Bears star Brian Urlacher said Wednesday that being excluded from a list of the top 10 linebackers in the league didn’t upset him, although he’s not very impressed by the list’s author.
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones provided the list to the NFL Network, and Jones ranked himself seventh while leaving off Urlacher, asking the question: “When was the last time Urlacher got off a block?”
Urlacher, who stopped in the ESPN 1000 studios Thursday for “The Waddle & Silvy Show,” and Jones both were drafted in 2000. Urlacher was picked ninth; Jones was No. 177.
“I think we were drafted in the same class, and I haven’t heard anything about him since then,” Urlacher said. “I saw him on a TV show with a bow tie on, though. So I know him better for the way he dresses than what he does on the football field.
“Look, guys are going to talk. I’ve definitely had a lot worse things said about me publicly from guys, so I can live with it.”
