    Haha, you're right but people, including myself, are getting desperate. The Giants are soft as hell as LB and when Rivers is put in a full body cast at the end of their first practice, the thought of defending all of these mobile with our older and slow D makes us want to throw ourselves in front of a steamroller.

    I mean, people keep saying the Giants will draft a LB in the early rounds? LMAO, I'll believe it when I see it and won't hold my breath...

    Id take him cheap but he turned down a 1 year two mil contract from Da Bears. IDK if we have the cap room. However Connor is younger, healthier, and more athletic at this point in their respective careers. Connor has played well when given his opportunities. I have no problem with him fighting for a Starting job and adding Urlacher would do nothing but improve our MLB position

    Ever play the game bud? Urlacher's presence on the field (AND leadership) is enough for the Giants organization to be at least somewhat interested. Chase was no leader and he was just an average LB. Some of you guys kill me.

    Yeah, let's call him and see if we can pick him up. I shouldn't have to say, "for the right price," just to please some of you kids. That just goes without saying...

    Well said. However, Urlacher said that he wouldn't take 2 million from the Bears....

    I don't know. It would just be nice to get an actual leader out there for our defense.

    The 2 Mill. Offer Was A Slap In The Face

    Well that is what He said according to Mike and Mike in the AM. We have seen odder things happen. Welker took less jack ( supposedly ) to be Peyton Manning's new " Little Buckeroo " When you can't always get what you want, ( Great Song ) Sometimes a player will go somewhere else just to show-up His former team in another uniform. " Hey Brian, come on over the water's fine. Play for the League Minimum, and actually win a Super Bowl "

Urlacher a year or 2 from retirement is more of an asset to any team over chase. And that's not just on reputation. That's just a better player, even at this stage of his career. That said, he wouldn't resign with Chi for a low salary and we just signed Connor. No way we make a play unless he begs to come here and even then...
    Chase had a better year last year than Urlacher did

    I wonder if he will take a $2.53 one year contact with 75 cents guaranteed.

    On a serious note, I would love to have him, but we'd have to offer him about 2-3 mil.

    If it were just his age it would be a lot easier to make the decision for a short term deal, but he's also coming off a major knee injury.

    However, I'm expecting Reese to once again neglect the LB position in the draft, which might change my opinion on Urlacher.

    A 70% Urlacher might be better than what the Giants have after the draft.....in his prime his production was off the charts. And, he's coming from a Lovie Smith defense, which is very similar to what Fewell does.

    Still, considering the Connor signing, there's no need to make a decision until after the draft.....and then, they could kick his tires. He'll be 2 years removed from the knee injury.

    As a sidenote, the Bears didn't handle this well....from what I'm hearing in the papers, there was really no effort made to work a deal, and there was no "mutual" agreement to part ways, according to Urlacher's camp.

    Nothing against Urlacher, but I don't see him ending up in a Giants uni. I don't know what kind of money he is looking for---but apparently 1yr at 2 mil was not it. At 35, Urlacher may have 2 yrs left. I think a team will sign him as a stop gap/band-aid, but I don't think it will be for top dollar. And who knows, Urlacher may want to go to a contender, since he is in the twilight of his career.
    Perry Fewell is out there playing Tecmo Bowl defense with just 4 plays you can pick from on the remote control.
