Chicago Bears All-Pro linebacker Brian Urlacher isn't doing anything to help the NFL with it's "player safety" image and war against concussion related lawsuits.
When asked today about the NFL's concussion problem he responded with the following:
"If you don't want to play and get concussed, then don't play. "It's your career, it's your life.
"You have to make that decision on your own."
Concussions are certainly one of the main topics of discussion as the Bears prepare to face the 49ers. Both starting QB's Jay Cutler and Alex Smith respectively, were forced to leave last week's games due to concussion and their status for this week is up in the air.
While I agree to a point with Urlacher, he's doing no one any favors by speaking out about it. Although he was asked, and I certainly respect the candor.
