Not to be a downer, but I knew Mike Brown would not last a complete season. Despite persistent injuries all throughout the season, it seemed as if he would finally be able to make it through the season without being placed on the injury reserve. What a foolish thought. Brown is placed on the IR today, so he will miss the Texans game. Brown had a disappointing year until he started playing closer to the line. Even then Mike Brown is a faint resemblance of who he used to be. I love Brown as a player, but his time is past, as is Urlacher's. Unfortunately Da Bears opportunity to win the Super bowl did not occur during their primes (2000-2004). I beg Angelo not to resign him again with the stubborn hope that he will not get injured. Despite playing for most of the season, he had injuries that made him less effective. Thank you Mike Brown for all you did for Da Bears. You will always be in Bears lore as that hard hitting safety with a knack for the ball especially in overtime.
