I just don't get it with this guy, he'd be on my all overrated team.

I agree right next to Vick.

I don't realy see any Bears games but his stats look pretty good.

He's the best player on a statistically great D. But let's be honest...who did they play?? GB, Det and MIN twice each...come on

Well, they played who was on the schedule.

Regardless, I would still put Chicago's defense at the top of the list - even more so than Tampa's much vaunted #2 defense.

They were great this year no doubt and can't do anything about their sked and Urlacher was statistically the best BUT, I have a problem picking a Defensive POY at LB who isn't even the leader of the unit. That is unquestionably Mike Brown and even inside guys in Chicago will tell you Urlacher is a cherry picking tackler.

I didn't really know BU's stats so i went over to espn.com and checked it out.

BU is 13th in the league in tackles w/ 122 tackles, 6 sacks, 1 ff, no int's

Jonathan Vilma has 173 tackles, 1/2 sack, 4 ff, and 1 interception

Another lb who has a great year was Mike Peterson of Jac:

132 tackles, 6 sacks, 2 ff, 3 ints

So if you are looking at stats alone, then the pick looks overrated. But as we all know, its alot about popularity.

Well we can all agree this is his last chance at the reward probably. Barring incarceration I am hoping our kill-shot safety is a the top of this list for the forseeable future after this season.

I think we had a couple of linebackers that had some great years as well.

BU gets a lot of protection from his front four. When he has had to man up against the run in the past and play through blocks he has had issues. People would love to compare him to Ray Lewis but Lewis was able to make plays getting double and triple teamed. The same can't be said for BU. Before this season I was staunchly in the BU is way way way over-rated class but he has had a good year and I am swayed that that he is only marginally over-rated now. I'd still take a half dozen of other guys before him.

Plus the guy isn't a play maker. He hits somewhat hard and makes tackles. That's about it. I'd prefer a guy who hits hard, makes tackles and can change a game in an instant.

Of all the things that have been said about Urlacher, I think the fact that he's not really a playmaker sticks out more than anything else.

I agree he is overrated, but he is still a stud. He's the QB of a great defense, is always around the ball, and is good in both coverage and run support.

He's definitely no slouch. The thing is that people know him as the QB of that D but in reality that is Mike Brown. He's the leader of that D, he just doesn't get the pub that Urlacher gets. Urlacher's biggest problem is he can't get off a block, before this year when they drafted/acquired two stud D-linemen and after they traded away their interior line follwing the 2001-2002 13-3 year, he stunk and people wanted to get rid of him because he couldn't make a play on his own. I have nothing against him I just tink there are alot of misconceptions about what he does on that D.

He is surrounded by badasses. But people just look at the best player on the best defense, though some would say Brown was better. I would trade anything (but Sean Taylor) to have Mike Brown, him and Taylor back there would be crazy.
