Sometimes two guys, even teammates, just don’t get along. From the moment Jay Cutler got to Chicago, there seemed to be an issue between the quarterback and star linebacker Brian Urlacher.
Now, even after Urlacher has been retired for a few years, the future Hall of Fame player still gets annoyed with Cutler.
On the Dan Patrick Show Monday morning, Urlacher was asked what current NFL player he still wants to hit. He may not have said it outright, but there isn’t a whole lot of confusion.
Brian Urlacher asked by Dan Patrick who he'd hit if he had one more hit. BU: "Even if it was a team I played for?" (cont.)— Jeremy Stoltz (@WJeremyStoltz) September 28, 2015
Dan Patrick: "Yeah if you wanna hit Cutler go ahead." Urlacher laughs, "You said it, not me."— Jeremy Stoltz (@WJeremyStoltz) September 28, 2015
Urlacher isn’t the only person who feels this way. In fact, he’s not even the only ex-Bears linebacker who wants to hit Cutler.
Lance Briggs made waves shortly after Jets quarterback Geno Smith was punched by a teammate. Briggs appeared on the NFL Network and said there were times he wanted to hit Cutler.

If the former linebackers want the Bears to win at all this season, they should probably avoid hitting Cutler. With Jimmy Clausen starting for an injured Cutler, the Bears offense looked a shell of what it could be.
