Re: Brian Urlacher retires after 13 seasons
Because the bar has been lowered so much in recent years, Urlacher will make it to the HOF, hopefully on his 2nd try. I think he was more of the Mike Curtis / Ted Hendricks competence level, i.e. very good, but not true HOF calibre. Playing in the NFL's 2nd largest city boosted his image, but not his abilities.
In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).
