About this Article

Brian Urlacher made it easy to wrap your mind around him as a Bears linebacker but so much more difficult to wrap your arms around him as a guy. I expected to be emotional whenever the Bears parted ways with Brian Urlacher. Indifference reigned instead on Wednesday: If he had stayed, OK; when he left, OK.
