Bears talk too much

Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has been less than impressed with the play of his team's supposedly feared defence. A late collapse cost the Bears last week in a loss against the Cleveland Browns dropped Chicago to 1-3 and it didn't sit well with the veteran.

"We sure do talk a lot for a team that gives up a couple big plays every game," Urlacher said. "We talk like we're the best defence in the league, but we haven't backed it up yet.

"We don't give up a lot of yards, just too many big plays."

Of course, the Bears don't get enough big plays on the other side of the ball. The loss was the third time the Bears have scored 10 points or less.
