TEAMS: Chicago Bears

Former Chicago Bears head coach Mike Ditka has some advice for Brian Urlacher after the retired linebacker's comments that he'll be "really pissed" if the team wins the Super Bowl without him. "My advice would be to put it behind you," Ditka told the Chicago Sun-Times. "Brian has been such a great player for the Bears and an ambassador for the team. Not many guys get to play 13 years for the same team. Usually, when you change GMs and a new regime comes in, they're going to make tough decisions." "Mr. Emery decided that Brian wouldn't be part of the plan," Ditka added. "There's nothing you can do about it. You know, the game of football was very good to Brian, but it owes him nothing now. You just have to move on."
