    Yeah, why not, we're bringing in old coaches why not old players.

    You completely miss a clear joke and you want to call others idiots?

    As for Urlacher I'd have to say no at this point. I can't imagine him being a good fit or coming here in a role player spot for cheap.

    Urlacher should just retire a Bear and be hired as a LB coach.

    The problem is Lee and Carter have not shown they are durable to last a full season. What is your plan "B" when these players get hurt again?

    I get that,, but " if " healthy, Lee and Carter are literally prototypes for the Mike and Will LB positions.

    I hear what you are saying, but adding yet another injury prone player that will very likely want to start and is ancient by most NFL standards is not going to necessarily help that situation.

    True, but the principle that we need PROVEN, quality depth behind Carter and Lee remains. I dont think theyre injury prone, but its not looking good so far in their young careers.

    I usually don't like this, but if it were 5mm/year or cheaper I'm not sure this is a terrible idea. Yes, Melton would be better, but Melton is going to come at 8mm/yr, potentially more.

    Do we really think Lee wouldn't be effective at the Sam? As a 1-2 year idea, I don't hate it.

    But yes, the article's author is clueless.

    Urlacher on a one year deal in the middle, Lee on the strong side, Carter on the weak side. That could work.

    However, I don't see the Cowboys going there. Lee is the long term answer in the middle and there's no good reason to waste a year of him.

    I agree with what someone posted previously, Urlacher should retire a Bear.

    Urlacher is selfish, he is not the Garrett RKG.

    It's not a Leap Year this year so he will only be 44 in July.

    You make an interesting point.

    Bradie James filled in nicely when Cushing went down so having an aging vet like Urlacher would not be a bad idea. For the right price, of course.

    Well that Texans D was pretty bad the 2nd half of the year, and I think not having Cushing was a major part of that.

    Having said that, I agree with your point. Urlacher might not go to a place for a low contract, but if you can get him for say 1.75-2 mil, he'd be a great option is someone gets hurt. I don't know that I'd want him playing 10 games, but I think he could be a valuable backup.

    You need a few more kinfolk to take their shoes off to do this type of higher math, but I'll explain it anyway. With the change from the Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar, due to the 1/4 rule trumping the divisible rule, 1900 wasn't a leap year so he'll be 47 in July. You forgot to carry the eleven.
