Urlacher fires back at Dhani Jones

A couple of weeks ago, Bengals LB Dhani Jones unveiled his top-10 list of the best linebackers in the NFL, and, somehow, he seemed to forget about Bears LB Brian Urlacher. That’s because Urlacher wasn’t on it, though Jones found it in his heart to rank himself No. 7.

UrlacherIn an interview with the NFL Network discussing his rankings, Jones said Urlacher simply couldn’t get off a block anymore.

Which leads us to an interview with Urlacher today on ESPN 1000 (via ESPN.com) in Chicago.

Basically, Urlacher said he didn’t really care what Jones thought but still managed to work in a couple of nice jabs.

"I think we were drafted in the same class, right? Is he a 2000 guy? 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 how the way he dresses than what he does on a football field. Guys are going to talk. I've definitely had a lot worse things said publicly from guys, so I can live with it."

JonesLater, he was asked if he was pretty pumped to go to London when the Bears play the Buccaneers across the Atlantic.

"No, I'm not excited to go to London,” he said. “I don't understand why they do that. ... I am not excited to go to London, I will say that. I can't imagine many players would be, considering the travel involved and disruption to their weekly schedule.”

Now, what would happen if Jones and Urlacher were on the same flight to London? Chances are the two would throw down, and as a result, bow ties and fish and chips would be scattered everywhere across the airplane. Only then would Jones think about putting Urlacher back on his top-10 list.

Bengals fan here... Love me some Dhani Jones.  He isn't even the THIRD best LB on the BENGALS though, much less seventh in the NFL???

Sorry homie you need to loosen up that bow-tie.

Urlacher fires back at Dhani Jones

Tale of the tape shows who is CLEARLY the better LB. Not even close really. Keep in mind that Urlacher missed the entire 2009 season with a dislocated wrist. Dhani needs to stick with running with the kangaroos in the jungle or sniffing on jocks for a couple bucks pimping deodorant. I can't remember the last time I heard anything about Jones on the field.

Once again, more fluff passing as news stories filling the void during the lockout.

Lets go Kickoff 2011!!

It is now hilarious to think about a cranky Urlacher on the flights to and from London!  haha  ... oh so sorry!  Maybe you can punch out one of those old-timey phone booths or pick a fight with a double decker bus? 

Feel sorry for what Bear has to sit by him cause he will be crankier than the crankiest dude who took first place at the cranky contest on the crankiest day of the year.

Dhani is a chump... but spot on about Urlacher. You watch Urlacher chase rb's to the side line he is amazing. But you watch a team run the ball right at him..LOL he looks like he is trying to jump out of the blockers way and then jump back in and make a tackle. The kind of stuff 7th graders do when they are learning football.
