You have expressed your faith in Brian Urlacher. Why didn’t he make more big plays?
Players change. It’s hard to stay on top forever. But he’s still a good player. He still is a real good leader. He still has a lot of value to our team. We’re looking at the whole package
Can you envision a scenario in which Mike Brown would return?
I don’t see that right now, given how it affects Danieal. Allocation of money comes into play, too, in what we want to do at other positions. There could be a case where we want Mike back, but we can’t afford to do it given what we want to do in other areas.
Do you still consider Nathan Vasher a starter?
He really hasn’t played in two years, so he needs to redefine himself, starting in the off-season. He has to earn a spot on our team. He has to show he can be a starter, somebody we can depend on. We rewarded a very good player. He earned a new contract. But since then he has had some injuries, and when he has played, his play hasn’t been up to his standards, I’m sure, and certainly our standards.
