Former UNM Lobo Brian Urlacher named to Pro Football Hall of Fame

Former UNM Lobo Brian Urlacher named to Pro Football Hall of Fame

Urlacher's candidacy, though, will come down to more than praise from his former teammates and rivals. Even Taylor himself said that without Dr. Doom there might not be an "L.T.", as Brazile's athleticism and sheer brute force allowed Bum Phillips to move to a 3-4 defense to take advantage of those attributes. Robert was selected to the the Mobile Sports Hall of Fame in 1994, the Senior Bowl Hall of Fame in 1994, the SWAC Hall of Fame in 1995, the Jackson State Hall of Fame in 2003, the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in 2005, the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame in 2007, and the Black College Football Hall of Fame in 2014.

Urlacher is one of 15 modern-era finalists.

The final five will each be subject to a yes or no vote; 80 percent approval gets them a gold jacket and a ticket to Canton, Ohio, this summer. Still, in a loaded class, it was a legitimate question as to whether or not Brian Urlacher would be elected as a first ballot Hall of Famer. His resume alone makes you wonder why Brazile wasn't named to the Hall much, much sooner, but his highlight video makes his exclusion for so many years seem absurd.

Urlacher changed the way the middle linebacker position was played. The rest of the Class of 2018 includes Kramer, Bobby Beathard, Brian Dawkins, Ray Lewis, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens and Brian Urlacher. Urlacher holds the team record for tackles, with 1,229. At the end of the day, I know within that realm it's cool to be acknowledged as a first-ballot guy.


"I hope you don't mind, we saw the "Do Not Disturb" sign on your door", Baker told the former Chicago Bears linebacker while showing him the sign.

Urlacher retired sitting 3rd on the all-time list for most starts as a Bear, trailing only Olin Kreutz and Walter Payton.

Saturday, Urlacher will find out everything that was enough. He began his career with the Seahawks and also played with the Jets before retiring after the 2009 season in Tennessee.

Hard to argue that he's not the Bears best defensive player since the glory days of the 1980s, and maybe the best overall.
