Urlacher Declares the Bears the Best Team in the NFL

Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher is confident, if anything. Last week, while participating in an NFL “Fuel Up To Play 60” event at a New Mexico elementary school, Urlacher didn’t shy away from sharing his thoughts on the Bears’ prospects for 2011. “I think we’re the best team in our conference,” Urlacher told the Albuquerque Journal. “I know we’re not the Super Bowl champs like the Green Bay Packers. We want to be the best in our conference and to be there, we’ve got to go through Green Bay.”

The Bears finished 11-5 in 2010 and won the NFC North ahead of the Packers, before losing to Green Bay 21-14 in the NFC championship game. Still, with the NFL in a lockout and free agency frozen, it’s unclear where Urlacher’s optimism is coming from. Chicago had only five picks in April’s draft and addressed its offensive and defensive lines with its first two picks before selecting a quarterback — a position that wasn’t a glaring need — in the fifth round.
