there is really no comparing them, willis is the hands down best lb in the nfl. However my twin brother is a delusional care bear's fan and tries to suggest Urlacher is better. I have provided him and others with numerous articles and top 10 surveys (AP) that show willis tops and Urlacher is not even top 4 (AP 1st or 2nd team). Any help or stats would greatly be appreciated.
Urlacher has been injured. he was gone for the rest of the season after the game opener against Greenbay. the Bears D really havent been the same without him. I think for a few years running Urlachers jersey was the most sold? Other then the two years this guy has been injured, hes been a beast!
Like Willis, Urlacher has won NFL defensive rookie of the year, Urlacher some years later won the NFL defensive player of the year, not many NFL players are in that club.
Urlacher isnt in the top 10 surveys because of injury, that doesnt mean hes past it or lost it. If the guys fit and healthy this season, he'll rack up the stats and be close to the top if not, thee top by seasons end.
