In the picture above, Brian Urlacher’s wrist (and hand) obviously felt a lot better than it does today. This morning, the Chicago Bears All-World Linebacker supposedly sent a text message to the organization stating simply, “it’s over,” “the season’s over,” or something to that extent. This is no Jeff Goldblum-is-dead internet type of rumor. It’s all over the place, even the Eastern Seaboard Programming Network is reporting it. Urlacher texted the biggest local daily paper here in Chicago, and one of our favorite ESPN talking heads just said on the air that he got email confirmation on this story as well. Urlacher will need surgery on his right wrist, which may be done as early as this week.
Surely, his hand felt no pain in the picture leading this post.
