BRIAN URLACHER: NO "MUTINY" AGAINST CUTLER BY BEARS
The loudest voice in the Chicago Bears' locker room has weighed in on Jay Cutler's sideline run-in with tackle J'Marcus Webb, and reminded everyone that the occasional outburst of anger is no big thing in football.
"Whatever happened, it’s over with now," defensive captain Brian Urlacher told reporters "We’ve moved on. It doesn’t seem to be an issue. Someone told me there was a mutiny against Jay in our locker room. If there was, I didn’t know about it. I guess we’re supposed to be mad at him, but things happen on the sideline."
The confrontation occurred during Week 2's Thursday night game, when Cutler was hammered with seven sacks in Chicago's loss at Green Bay. Cutler shoved Webb and tell at the left tackle, and later explained his actions individually to each member of the offensive line.
"I didn’t pay attention to it locally or nationally," Urlacher said. "Everyone was asking me about it, but I still haven’t seen what happened. And I don’t really care what happened."
In remarks posted by the Chicago Tribune, Urlacher added that: "People get mad. I’ve gotten in spats with coaches, players as well. It happens. ... People get pissed off and sometimes do things we shouldn’t do. But it happens . . . It’s just like a fight in practice: It’s in practice, who cares? You guys probably see us fight in training camp every year. So what? After practice is over, you’re in the locker room (and) you’re buddies again. It’s not a big deal."
Chicago plays at home against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
