Urlacher says this year could be big

You wouldn’t expect a 34-year-old, 13-year veteran like Brian Urlacher to buy into a trite concept like “sense of urgency,” as in the annually asked: “Is there a greater sense of urgency this year than ever before?” “There's a sense of urgency every year,” Urlacher said. “It's a new team every single year. There are guys gone, guys get cut that you don't expect to get cut or traded, anything like that. So every year is a sense of urgency. It's no different than any other year.” However, even a grizzled veteran like Urlacher believe that this year could be special. “I think we have the talent now to reach our expectations,” he said. “We always say that because it's the right thing to say. But I really think we can do it this year. “We're stacked at every position. Any time you add Brandon Marshall and Michael Bush, and our defense is healthy again, which is a big deal for us. Jay (Cutler) being back healthy is a big deal, too.”
